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 ?"
