Teacher: Isaac was neither a brilliant student nor a smart boy when he was a school student. He used to be beaten by other students of his classroom and the school where he was studying. He never gave any reply to the blows given by others on his weak body. One morning, Isaac was on his way to school. The most brilliant student of his classroom, too, was with him. The brilliant student started beating Isaac, as usual. Surprisingly, Isaac gave a few blows back to the brilliant student who was frustrated by the response of Isaac. He told Isaac, "so you have defeated me here, but you can never defeat me in our class, because I am the most brilliant student in our class". Listening to this, Isaac told in his mind, "let's see".
