সংশয়মোচন — ১

হামাগুড়ি দিয়ে বুড়ো রেতে ফিরে বাড়ি, বলে - বুড়ি দেখো তো গো খেয়েছি কি তাড়ি? বুড়ি বলে -- এ ব্যাপারে সন্দ থাকতে পারে? বুড়ো কয় -- আমিও বলি, গন্ধটা তারই। ______ This could have been inspired by Ogden Nash's Carlotta. There was an old man in a trunk Who inquired of his wife, "Am I drunk?" She replied with regret, "I'm afraid so, my pet," And he answered, "It's just as I thunk."

______
Note! When I congratulated my good friend Richard Thaler for winning the Economics Nobel, he replied, “Who would have thunk!” I wonder if he too was influenced by Nash.
