Aditi was a 10-year-old girl. She was the only daughter of her parents. Aditi's father was a very busy businessman who could not spend time with her daughter. He generally came home after Aditi slept and was off to office before Aditi woke up in the morning.


Poor Aditi had a yen for her father's attention. She longed to go outdoors with her father and play with her father and play with him in the Garden just like his friends did.


However, one day, Aditi was stunned to See her father at home in the evening. "Dad, it's a big surprise to see you at home, Aditi said happily. "Yes my dear daughter, my meeting was Cancelled. So I'm at home. But after a couple of hours, I have to take a flight, "her father replied.


"When will you be back? "Aditi asked. "Tomorrow afternoon. "her father replied. Aditi was in deep thought for a while. After some time, she asked, "Dad how much do you earn in a year? "Aditi's father bewildered at the question. He said, "My dear daughter, it's a huge amount and you will not be able to understand it."Ok dad are you happy with the amount you earn? "Aditi asked. "Yes my dear. I'm very happy! In fact I'm planning to Launch our new branch and a new business in a few months, "replied her father.


Aditi was excited to know that and said, "Yes dad. I'm happy to hear that. Can I ask you one more question? "Yes dear "Replied her dad. "Dad can you tell me How much you earn in a day or even half a day? "Aditi asked curiously.

"Aditi why are you asking this question? "Aditi's father was puzzled. But Aditi was adamant. "Please Answer me. Can you please tell me How much you earn in an hour? "


Aditi's father bowed out and replied, "It will be around $25/- per hour". At once Aditi ran to her

room upstairs and came down with her piggy bank that contained her savings. "Dad I have $50 in my piggy bank. Can you spare two hours for me? I want to go to the beach and have dinner with you tomorrow evening. Can you Please mark this on your schedule? "Aditi's father was speechless and had tears in her eyes.
