A young man studying in town died in an accident. A few eyebrows were raised. Some termed it as a suicide.
His old father could not get the dead body of his son, despite making several visits to the hospital and the police station. That very evening, he got a tip that the body was kept in a morgue.
When the old man reached there, an employee of the hospital advised him, "Don't worry uncle. Give me Rs. 2000 and I will hand over the body to you. How long would you wait here? It is already dark outside. It might rain as well. So hurry up. Don't wait, anymore."
The old man took out two crumpled notes of thousand rupees and uttered, "Son, how many children do you have?"
"Two; one son and one daughter."
The old man said with much grief, "Son, out of these two thousands, please don't use even a single rupee for them."
