Best Friend by Sanjoy Dutt

Teacher, “Best friends assure we sleep in peace, who’s yours?”
The room was speechless.

One disciple said, “I have a clue, but my reason’s first.”
“Sure,” the teacher responded.

“The doctor certainly wants you frightened about your sickness,
Lawyer wants you insomniac with legal concerns, Police like chasing apprehensive criminals, Electrician prefer damaged wiring to provide insomnia, Private tutor desires you restless with your child’s result,
Banker favors you wakeful with bankruptcy.”

“Who is the best friend?” inquisitive teacher urged.

“One who craves we have lots of wealth and sleep most harmoniously, is the Thief!”
