Just for fun: Tax on GOD's money

A little boy wanted Rs.500 from his father. His father, in an effort to divert his attention, asked him to pray to God and God will give hime the money. The boy started to pray daily. Weeks had gone, but nothing seems to happen. Finally he decided to write a letter to God requesting the money.

When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to God, they decided to forward it to the President as a joke. The President was so amused, that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy Rs. 100. The President thought Rs. 500 is a lot of money to a little boy, and he did not want to spoil the kid.

The little boy was delighted when he received Rs. 100, and wrote a thank you note to God, which read: "Dear God: Thank you very much for sending the money. However, in future, please do not send the money through the President's office. These officers had deducted Rs. 400 in taxes".
