A joke in Sanskrit- No-1

A joke in Sanskrit- No-1

(LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE)

कस्मिंश्चित्  आपणे कश्चन बालक: चाकलेहान् विक्रीणाति स्म | तस्मिंश्च मार्गे कश्चन वृद्ध : गच्छति स्म | तेषां चाकलेहानां दर्शनेन तस्य मुखत: लालाजलमपि  (saliva) स्रवति स्म | स: बालकं  पृष्टवान् अयि भो! बालक ! चाकलेहानां दर्शनेनैव मम मुखत: जलं स्रवति ||  त्वं कथं निग्रहं वहसि ? आश्चर्यमेतत् इति || तदा बालक: प्रत्युत्तरं दत्तवान् ममापि खादने लालसा अस्ति || अत: अहं एकवारं चकलेहं उद्घाटय, तस्य चर्वणं कृत्वा पुन: पत्रं संवृणोमि (close)|.     

Once in a market place a boy was selling chocolates. An old man was passing near by and his mouth started watering on seeing the chocolates. He asked the boy “My dear boy, my mouth is watering like any thing on seeing the chuckles. Don’t you get temptation on seeing them? The boy humbly answered “I do sir, but the thing is that I close and tie the wrapper of every chocolate after tasting them for a while.
