There was an old man with two sons Amit and Bala. He gave a mango tree, a solar lamp, and a woolen blanket to them. He asked them to share these things among themselves. Amit was a cunning man. He told his brother Tet to share the objects equally. I will keep the fruits, you keep the tree. I will keep the lamp at night, but you can keep it during the day. I will keep the blanket for half the year during winter. You can keep it for half the year during summer.’ Bala agreed. Is this a fair way of sharing? Is there another way to share it fairly?
