A little boy wanted Rs.500.00 very badly and prayed for weeks, but nothing happened. Finally he decided to write a letter to GOD requesting the Rs.500.00 When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to ' God , Sri Lanka ',
They decided to forward it to the Finance Minister of Sri Lnka as a joke.

The Finance Minister was so amused, that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy Rs.200.00 The Finance Minister thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy, and he did not want to spoil the kid.

The little boy was delighted with Rs.200.00 and decided to write a thanking Reply note to God, which reads: 'Dear God: Thank you very much for sending the money. However, I noticed that you sent it through the Finance Ministry in Sri Lanka , and those donkeys deducted Rs.300.00 as taxes!'
