Ten villagers went to the Ganga to take a dip in the river. How Villagers Count Cap

They held each other’s hands as they took dips thrice. 

When they came up the third time, they were not holding hands.

“Let’s make sure all of us have come out of the river safely,” said one villager,

“Everybody stand in line. I will count.”

The other villagers liked the idea and lined up as one villager took count, “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9…” He stopped at 9 as the line came to an end.

“Nine, only nine,” screamed one of the villagers.

“Oh no, one of us has drowned in the river,” cried out another.

“You move aside. Let me take the count. 

Everybody, stand in a line,” said the second villager.  

He began counting. He too could count only 9 people. 

All the villagers started crying for their lost friend.

A cap seller was watching the entire drama. 

He noticed that the man who did the counting had left himself out of the count. 

He offered to do the counting.

But the villagers refused to take his help. 

“We are smart enough to count. You are uneducated. 

We don’t trust your ability to count,” they said.

“Alright, I leave the counting to you. 

But do one thing. Here, put on these caps, first.”

The cap seller asked them to remove their caps and keep them on the ground. 

The villagers placed the caps on the ground.

“Now count the caps you had worn,” said the cap seller.

All of them counted together, “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10.”

“We wore these caps. 

There are ten caps. 

This means we are ten,” the first villager said. 

All nodded their heads in agreement. “Let’s buy these magic caps,” said another villager.

The cap seller charged them one rupee for each cap, and walked away happily with ten coins jingling in his pocket.
