When one treats his or her  mother  in a silly way, mother becomes "other"!!  :'( :'(By the way, this is not a silly question.

Oh, I see! Madam hasn't taken it sillily ( pardon me for my own use of the word "silly" as an adverb here). But I think people might consider in the sense of a riddle etc. Just to give a clue, Shampa. See if you can figure out something out of it.

We can simply exclude the letter 'm' to get 'others'   :D :)

What a fanrastic constellation of intelligent colleagues! Shampa, Subrata, Tina- answer from each one of you is correct but, to be specific, Tina's answer the questioner was looking for. Congratulations to you all but, Tina, you have got a prize. You'll be called to collect it in time.

Yes, Tina. You've got one. I'm afraid, you'll have to wait for the opportune moment, won't you?

I didn't get the answer to the riddle as to why someone gives a gift i.e. a run-out pen to someone else?

Oh, I see. I'm just if you are trying to avoid the responsibility. I know you know the answer. And that is:
An expensive pen with proper refill should be given in return.
I hope you know what I mean.

Dear Tahsina,
I can see you are a Sr.(?) member here. So, you have more responsibility to respond to my response a little more generously, don't you?

'Silly' no sir. It would be 'Serious'.

Sorry, for noticing this after a long time.
But the answer to the riddle was disappointing. :(
