Our Goalpara house was a very big compound and there were many mango, guava, jackfruit and other trees inside. We were all young kids and would play there together. One such time our brother brought a nicely ripened guava.
All of us stopped playing and shouted, "Chot-da, Chot-da, I want it. I want it."
He held the guava high in the air and told, "I'll give this to the one who has the longest tongue."
All of us opened our mouths and tried to extend the tongue, "eh... eh..." He saw everyone's tongues and gave the guava to my uncle's son whose tongue was very small.
He told, "He has no greed. He deserves it."
Then I thought, "Oh! Why did I extend my tongue so much?"
