Farmer of Watermelon
In a rural area of village, there was a Farmer of Watermelon whose name was Paijo. He was very diligent in planting watermelons and everyday he was watering the plants so he could raise watermelons in his field. But recently, he had got a problem with some naughty local kids who liked to sneak into his field, they took some watermelons and ate them. That really disturbed him.

He tried to get the way to overcome this for some days. After some careful thinking, Paijo came up with a clever idea that he thought it would scare the kids away.
He then wrote a sign on a board and posted in the field.
The sign said,
” Warning!!!, one of the watermelons in this field has been injected with cyanide. “
He was sure enough that his idea would be success. (Also read other article at : Delman Free Pollution Transportation)
For several days later it was success, no watermelons were missing from the field. It made him happy. And he was so delighted that his idea proved to be very effective.
