Kids Learn Business Early These Days

One day many years ago at a school in South London a teacher said to the class of 5-year-olds, " I'll give £20 to the child who can tell me who was the most famous man who ever lived."

An Irish boy put his hand up and said, "It was St. Patrick." The teacher said, "Sorry Alan, that's not correct." Then a Scottish boy put his hand up and said, "It was St. Andrew." The teacher replied, "I'm sorry, Hamish, that's not right either.

Finally, a small Indian boy raised his hand and said, "It was Jesus Christ."

The teacher said, "That's absolutely right, Hitesh, come up here and I'll give you the £20."

As the teacher was giving Hitesh his money, she said, "You know, Hitesh, since you're Indian, I was very surprised you said Jesus Christ."

Hitesh replied,"Yes, in my heart I knew it was Lord Krishna, but business is business ! "
