u might like to solve this problem!
must read - thinking through a problem is the secret!
Many years ago in a small Indian village, a farmer had the misfortune
of owing a large sum of money to a village moneylender. The moneylender,
who was old and ugly, fancied the farmer's beautiful daughter. So he
proposed a bargain. He said he would forgo the farmer's
debt if he could marry his daughter. Both the farmer and his daughter
were horrified by the proposal. So the cunning money-lender suggested that
they let providence decide the matter.
He told them that he would put a black pebble and a white pebble into
an empty money bag. Then the girl would have to pick one pebble from the
If she picked the black pebble, she would become his wife and her
father's debt would be forgiven. If she picked the white pebble she need not
marry him and her father's debt would still be forgiven. But if she refused
to pick a pebble, her father would be thrown into jail.
They were standing on a pebble strewn path in the farmer's field. As
they talked, the moneylender bent over to pick up two pebbles. As he picked
them up, the sharp-eyed girl noticed that he had picked up two black
pebbles and put them into the bag. He then asked the girl to pick a pebble from
the bag. Now, imagine you were standing in the field. What would you have
done if you were the girl? If you had to advise her, what would you have
told her? Careful analysis would produce three possibilities:
1. The girl should refuse to take a pebble.
2. The girl should show that there were two black pebbles in the bag
and expose the money-lender as a cheat.
3. The girl should pick a black pebble and sacrifice herself in order
to save her father from his debt and imprisonment.
Take a moment to ponder over the story. The above story is used with
the hope that it will make us appreciate the difference between lateral
and logical thinking. The girl's dilemma cannot be solved with traditional
logical thinking. Think of the consequences if she chooses
the above logical answers.
What would you recommend to the Girl to do?
The girl put her hand into the moneybag and drew out a pebble. Without
looking at it, she fumbled and let it fall onto the pebble-strewn path
where it immediately became lost among all the other pebbles.
"Oh, how clumsy of me," she said. "But never mind, if you look into
the bag for the one that is left, you will be able to tell which pebble I
Since the remaining pebble is black, it must be assumed that she had
picked the white one. And since the money-lender dared not admit his
dishonesty, the girl changed what seemed an impossible situation into
an extremely advantageous one.
MORAL OF THE STORY: Most complex problems do have a solution. It is
only that we don't attempt to think.

Think scientifically !!!
.Newton'method:- Let Veerappan catch you.For every action there is a equal and opposite reaction.Implies you caught Verappan.
.Einstein method:- Run in the direction opposite to that of Veerappan.Due to higher relative velocity,the Veerappan will also run faster and will get tired soon.Now you can trap him easily.
.Schrodinger method:- At any given moment,there is a positive probebility that Veerappan to be in the Jungle.So set the sandal trap,sitdown and wait.
.Inverse Transformation method:- We place a spherical cage in the forest and enter it.Perform an inverse transformation with respeet to Veerappan.Veerappan is in and we are out.
.Thermodynamic procedure:- We construct a semi-permeable membrane which allows every thing to pass it except Veerappan.Then sweep the entire forest with it.
.Integration Differentiation method:- Integrate the forest over the entire area.Veerappan is some where in the result.So differentiate the result pantially w.r.t. Veerappan to trace out Veerappan.
