The old loan-shark. fancied a businessman’s daughter.
He gave a deal to the man to wipe off his loan.
The loan-shark said, “I’ll put two pebbles in a bag, one
white and another black. If your daughter picks a black
pebble I’ll marry her and wipe off the debt & if she picks
white I’ll wipe off the debt without marrying her.”
In disgust both agreed to this.
The loan-shark standing on the stone path bent and picked
two pebbles, whilst he was picking them the daughter saw
that he had picked both black.
This left the girl with 3 options, she could
-Refuse to pick the pebble
-Expose loan-shark. for cheating
-Sacrifice and pick a pebble
The daughter decided to pick the pebble.
The loan-shark had a naughty smile on his face.
The daughter picked the pebble, however before looking
“accidentally” dropped it among other pebbles on the path.
The daughter said,
“No worries , you can look at the other pebble to decide
which one I picked.”
Knowing the other pebble is black he had
to play along and wipe off the debt without getting to marry
