The Facts of the Matter

Imagine being out and about and a police officer stops you and reminds you owe the concerned department copious amounts of money. The imagination is enough to induce sweat among Indians across the nation who go out of their way to avoid paying fines.

Now imagine, the same officer challenges you into a simple game of rock, paper, scissors, and bets if you win the game, he will let go of the fine.
