Malayalee's confusion

   Once, in a village in Kerala, there lived two identical brothers. They looked

very much alike in every respect and the villagers often had trouble distinguishing

between them.

   Unfortunately, one of them died. Sankaran Kutti, our hero, decided to visit the

grief-stricken family and console them. Now, there was a problem. Sankaran was not

sure which of the brothers had died.

  Our ever-resourceful hero solved the problem ingeniously. He walked upto the 

surviving sibling and asked amidst tears -

  "Is it you who is dead or is it your Brother ?"
