You are running too slowly!1

One day when I was in Pondicherry recently, I was running near the Bay of Bengal. A little Tamil boy said to me, “Sir, you will not be allowed to run here tomorrow.”

I asked, “Why?”

He said, “Because you are running too slowly!

I said to him, “All right. I will not come this way tomorrow. Tomorrow I will go to some other place.”

Then he said, “No, come here! No matter how slowly you run, come here. I like you.”

All this was in Tamil.
