One day in our village their were two people who herd together but were not educated. One night before the 12.00pm the two them wen walking on the way one of them looked backward but had no good reason looking back then before he saw forward he saw a personal care coming behind him so this other man stopped the care after few minutes were climbed in without talking with driver. so in the personal card their were four people; Namely ministry of education, driver and two boys. Then after 30 minutes the ministry of education asked a question? where are you going the two of them kept quiet because they didn't know the the English and already had not reached even nursery school then the ministry of education told them that from know must be in school without any challenges so the boys became happy and were started to go to school and thanks to him for him for something he had done.
