KID:I am planning to tell my teacher that I could not do my homework because my mom was sick.
MAN:Hmm… to avoid the punishment you will tell a lie.
KID:Do I have any other choice?
MAN:And if tomorrow you don’t feel like doing homework again then you will tell another lie.
MAN:Then lying and avoiding homework will become a habit
MAN:Then in future your friends will get ahead of you in studies and that will be the biggest punishment for you. So what do you think… telling the truth now and getting a small punishment or lying and getting a bigger punishment in future?
KID:Hmm…a small punishment now
KID:Ok then, I’ll see you later.
MAN:Take care Aditya
KID:I will and thank you Gandhi Ji
VO:Books are the best conversation one can have.
