Once there lived a man named Sheikh Chilli. He was a simpleton but was very popular among his friends. One day, the landlord asked Chilli to count the total number of houses in the village. I will pay you fifty paisa for each house you count!” the landlord said. Sheikh Chilli walked all over the village and counted all the houses and the landlord paid him as per the terms. When Chilli’s friends came to know about this deal, they said, “Chilli! Don’t you know that the landlord is dishonest? We are sure he must have cheated you!” “Don’t worry, friends!” said Sheikh Chilli. “I cheated him this time! I counted hundred houses, but I only told him half the number!” Hearing this, Sheikh Chilli’s friends had a hearty laugh.
