I am sorry that you have lost your father. I hope the police will help you find him

No one can beat kids at lateral thinking. Or maybe it's just that as we grow up our thinking becomes regimented.

Aw...cute letter.

Avinash...I guess you are right. It's funny that our systems of education itself stunts our inherent capability to think laterally.
