  3. Team name: team gandhi Writer:yasu

    1.Elderly man’s name is Gandhi.He is 65 years old.
    The woman’s name is Sally.She is 42 years old.
    They are both selfish.They think that their profits take first priority. to keep their spaces.
    3.First scene:They have their own shops.
    Next scene:As usual,they started fighting because of customer’s action.
    Another scene:They started fighting again for garbage
    Finally scene:They cooperated to make more profits but they sometimes still fight.
    4.Before first scene:Gandhi stealed customers from sally’s shop.
    Before next scene:A short time ago Gandhi’s shop spaces were occupied by books that                     sally’s shop had and Gandhi’s profits decreased.
    Before another scene:A short time ago garbage from sally’s shop went into coffee that Gandhi made.
    Before finally scene:One day,they perceived the truth that cooperation makes more profits.
    5.There were two shop’s owners in India. Gandhi is cafe shop’s owner. Sally is book shop’sowner.
    They are both selfish so they always conflicted to keep their spaces. For example,when
    sally’s customer put her books down on the Gandhi’s table he got angry.In general,shops in India are very small so shop spaces are very important. One day,they perceived that cooperation makes more profits. After they started cooperating,profit increased more and more but they sometimes still fight.
