plate and asked the waiter to parcel a Rava Dosa. I finished my eating but the

parcel was taking time. I got impatient and finally decided to leave the place, without

picking up the parcel although I had paid for it.

After about five days, I went back to Sarvana Bhavan for another meal. I decided not

to even broach the issue of me not having collected the Rava Dosa. However, I was

truly surprised when the waiter informed me that he is giving me the bill by deducting

the amount of Rs.50 of the Dosa which I had not picked up last time.
