Buddhi (clever) was at the window to purchase a ticket for the movie, “Coquette.”

He had been watching the very movie every day for two weeks.

The clerk, “Hi sir.”

“May I have a ticket?”

“For Coquette?” he enquired.

Buddhi nodded, “yes.”

At the gate, the ticket checker identified him, “Hello, sir, Coquette today?”

“Yes.”

“What is so exceptional about the movie?”

“I missed a scene,” Buddhi said.

“Which one?”

“The actress was disrobing for her bath in the lonely lake, just then the train passed and blocked my view. One day that train will be late.”

The checker gawked!
