The story begins in a mood of nostalgia. Can you narrate some incidents from your childhood that might make an interesting story?

My cousin Pankaj and I were enjoying a holiday at a hill-resort. One morning Pankaj invited me to go fishing at the lake. I readily agreed as I was fond of fishing. In less than twenty minutes we reached the lake. Pankaj cast the fishing line in the water and we sat waiting patiently for a fish to be caught in the hook. Just then a stranger came along and greeted us. We also greeted him in return and said that it was a fine day. He asked us if we were catching any fish. Pankaj promptly replied that the fishing was very good there and said that we had caught there three trouts in about an hour. Offhandedly, the stranger asked him, “Do you know who I am ?” Pankaj said that he didn’t. The stranger replied that he was the game warden of that region and added that trouts were not found in that lake. Pankaj thought for a while and then he said, “By the way. Do you know who I am ?” The stranger replied that he didn’t. At this, Pankaj said, “Well, I am the biggest liar of the country”. The stranger burst into a laughter and walked away.
