He was known as Mr. Opposite

If someone asked Sarthak whether he was Sarthak, he would say “No.” If he were asked whether the sky were falling he would say “Yes.” He always answered with the opposite of the truth. He did this because he thought people should think for themselves. People who knew him had no trouble with this, because they knew that when he answered “Yes” he meant “No,” but strangers might be troubled, so Sarthak always told them, “If I mean ‘No,’ I say ‘Yes,’ and if I mean “Yes,” I say ‘No.’”
