Prakash : Don't you have a water tank or tap?
Grandma : No, my child. Ours is a very small village. It is isolated from towns.
Prakash : How do you get water for drinking and cooking?
Grandma : We draw water from this well.
Prakash : Grandma! What is this wheel? What is it for?
Grandma : It's called a pulley. It has a groove. A rope passes along the groove.
Prakash : Should you use a pulley to draw water?
Grandma : Of course. The pulley is a simple machine. It makes my work easy. Have you studied about it in your science class?
Prakash : Yes, grandma. The scissors, lemon crusher, crowbar, the forceps etc are all simple machines.
Grandma : Well said, Prakash! You're an intelligent chap.

A time I was very late
It happened last Friday morning. I was at the bus stop waiting for the bus. A little girl was also standing there. All of a sudden a motorbike hit her down and sped away. The girl fell to the ground. She was bleeding. I lifted the girl. I summoned an autorickshaw and took the girl to the nearest hospital. The doctors gave her first aid and they informed her parents about the accident. The parents of the girl came soon. They were tearful. They thanked me for my timely help. I went to school late that morning. The teacher did not rebuke me for my late-coming. He praised me for the help I rendered.
