There is a vacancy for the post of police constable, hence interview is going on. Radhe shyam has gone to appear before interview board. The officer asked Radhe shyam what was the price of fifty gram apple if the rate is one hundred rupees per kilo, . The beauty of the answer to this simple question is revealed in this poem.
The Officer asked Radhe shyam what is the price
of fifty gram of apple if the rate is one hundred per kilogram.
Radhe Shyam said if I have to buy fifty gram of apple
What is benefit of police job.
The Officer was amused to hear the answer
He said if I go to buy, how much will I pay?
Radhe shyam said, 'just Order sir,
I sent a whole basket at your home.'
The Officer said, 'Well, if your wife goes to the market.
How much will she pay for fifty gram of apple".
Radhe shyam said, 'Sir, I know her very well,
If she has to buy fifty gram of apple,
she will ask the price of fifty gram only".
The Officer said, 'Well, if your brother goes to the market
how much will he pay for fifty gram of apple".
Radhe shyam said, "he goes to market but every time he buys only radish, eggplant, potato and raw mangoes".
The Officer said, 'Well, if your sister goes to the market
how much will she pay for fifty gram of apple".
Radhe shyam said, " my sister has been married for a long time now she and her husband knows how much it costs".
The Officer said, 'Well, if your father goes to the market.'
Radhe shyam said, "Sorry sir his has no teeth
so he eats only banana".
Annoyed, Radhe shyam turned around and asked to the officer, "Sir you will pay salary for one person,
But you sent the whole family to buy apples.
Laughing softly, the officer said, 'Do you have any friends, Radhe shyam? '
Radhe shyam said, "Yes sir Sitaram".
Officer said, "Does he eat apples"?
Radhe shyam replies, "Yes sir if someone gives he eats,
Otherwise where does he gets."
The officer said, 'Well, if any common man went to buy apples.'
As soon as the common man spoke, Radhe shyam becomes serious and said, "Sir you know the present status of a common man, can they be able to buy an apple?
Ordinary people sales apple, extraordinary people buys.
The Officer said, 'Radhe shyam, you have dragged out the question for a long time.'
Radhe shyam said, "Sir I dislike the question from the beginning
That's why, it has been so long to answer."
I think this apple is the root of all evils' in the world.
Suppose Adam and Eve did not eat apples
at the beginning of the creation,
Neither I nor you would be today,
Not a hundred gram, not fifty grams,
Neither, you would be officer nor, I am Radhe shyam.
The result of the interview is
Now a days Radhe shyam eats apple every day,
But he sent fifty gram of apple to the officer.
