Accurate Statistics - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

‘Sir, there are two coaches to Agra.
Which would you prefer? ’

‘The one where the average age is less.’

‘Granted, the one where it is thirty,
The other being forty.’

The journey began to the dismay of
The lad who found himself among
Kids and their grandparents,
Whose average age is twenty
Whereas the other coach consisted of
Teenagers and their mothers.

How misleading the statistics is!
