The situation was really serious. ''Hey, I know how you can detect fake notes,`` I said. My friend became curious. ''What is it?`` he eagerly asked.
I took out a one hundred rupee note and handed it over to him. ''Fold it,`` I said. He promptly did it. ''One more fold,`` I said. And this went on till the rupee note became really small. ''Take some hard object and hit the note,`` I instructed him. Intrigued and yet curious, he ran out and came back with a stone and hit the note hard. ''What next?`` he asked. ''Open the note,`` I said, and seriously continued,
''If Gandhi`s glasses are broken, it`s a fake note for sure!``
