32-Gold or Silver?
There once lived a wise man in a village. So it hurt him very much when the village headman told him, "Your son doesn't know, what's more valuable, gold or silver."
The wise man called
his son and asked, "What is more valuable "gold or silver?"
So the son said - "Every day on my way to school, the village headman calls me to his house. He holds out a silver coin in one hand and a gold coin in other. He asks me to pick up the more valuable coin. I pick the silver coin. He laughs and makes fun of me, but I don't mind his making fun of me. And then I go to school. This happens every day. That is why he told you that I do not which is more valuable, gold or silver?"
The father was
confused. "Why don't you pick up the gold coin?" he asked.
