Little Sameer who was a Hindu, was failing in math.
His parents tried everything, Tutors, mentors, flash cards, special learning centers, but nothing helped.
As a last resort, someone told them to try a Catholic School.
"Those nuns are tough" they said.
Sameer was soon enrolled at St Mary's.
After school on the very first day Sameer ran through the door and straight to his room, without even kissing his mother hello.
He started studying furiously, books and papers spread all over his room.
Right after dinner, he ran upstairs without mentioning TV and hit the books harder than before.
His parents were amazed.
This behaviour continued for weeks, until report card day arrived.
Sameer quietly laid the envelope on the table and went to his room.
With great trepidation, his mother opened the report.
Sameer had an gotten an 'A' in math!
She ran up to his room, threw her arms around him and asked, "Sameer, how did this happen? Was it the nuns?"
"No" said Sameer, "On the first day of school when I saw that man nailed to the plus sign, I knew they weren't fooling around".
