Toti:         Hello Hamsa. How are you doing? You have really grown tall this year. Almost the height of our class teacher Mr. Tosha.

Toti:         I think this has been made possible because I have always followed the rule of three that Ms Kobole taught us.

Toti:          Exactly. This has really helped me maintain good health.
