1. Once I asked a little girl, "What is your mother's name?" "I know my mother's name but I won't tell you that. I don't tell my mother's name to anybody whom I don't know," She said. "What a clever girl you are!"
2. "Could I help you, sir?" said the receptionist. The man replied, "Sure, I want to meet the Managing Director of the company." The receptionist said, "Do you have an appointment?" "Yes, I have," he said.
3. "Will you come to my house tomorrow?" I said to the boy, 'We can discuss terms and conditions then." "I shall be very happy to meet you at your house. Thank you so much," he replied.
4. The stranger said to the boy, "Will you tell me the way to the nearest hotel?" "Yes, I will. Do you want a residential one in which can spend the night?" the boy said. "I don't want to say there, but only want a meal," the stranger replied. The boy said, "Follow me."
5. "Where are you going?" said the merchant. "I was coming to see you." "What do you want?" "To earn my bread by the labor of my hands." "Do you really work?" said the merchant. "Yes, if you have any." Then follow me and carry a box from a shop to my house." "I do not see how I can do that," said the youth.
6. A hawker said, "Will you buy any paper? I have all types of newspaper and magazines. Please take one from me." "I buy books but now I need a weekly. Don't you have any weekly magazine?" said Susmita.
7. "May I come in sir?" A boy standing at the door said to him. Then without waiting for his reply the boy entered the room and said, "Sir, I have come from Palashpur with a letter from Mr. Ajit Bose?" "How is he?" He said smiling. "He is not well. He has been suffering from a serious illness for two years," The boy said. "How sad it is! May God cure him," He said.
1. Once I asked a little girl what her mother's name was. She replied that she knew her mother's name but she would not tell me that. She also said that she did not tell her mother's name to anybody whom she did not know. I exclaimed with wonder that she was a very clever girl.
