The candle wick has to be burning, for father to be alive.
If the candle is made such that, candle melts to the same container then wick will be burning ever.

Madan placed a Rs2000 note on the table and left for work.

When he returned back he found that the money was gone.

There were only 3 people in his house that day: the cook, the maid and the electrician.

The cook said he put the note under a book on the table to keep it safe.

The man checked and it is no longer there.

The maid said she moved the note to the inside of the book between pages 14 and 15 while she was cleaning.

Again, the man checked the book and there was nothing between page 14 and 15.

The electrician said he saw the note sticking out of the book and he moved it between page 15 and 16 to keep it safe.
