A Tale from Magesh

Magesh was at office today, and he had a story to narrate. At school, he used to have combined classes with students from Tamil medium. Sometimes, one of the teachers would be teaching in English, and it would go totally over the heads of the Tamil medium guys. So once, in such a class, the teacher asked a question, and as no one knew the answer, the class went silent.

The guy next to Magesh, a Tamil medium student, was so out of it that he nudged Magesh, asking “Why is everyone so silent?”

Magesh had to tell him, “The teacher asked a question, and no one knows the answer.”

“Oh,” replied the other one, and sank lower in his seat.
