बच्चों ने खेला क्रिकेट... (Kids played cricket...)

विशेष नोट : अगर आप जवाब ढूंढ लेते हैं तो ठीक, वरना कमेंट लिख दीजिएगा, मैं जवाब आपको मेल के जरिये भेज दूंगा...

मेरे बच्चे सार्थक और निष्ठा, मेरे भाई के बच्चे जिज्ञासा और अम्बर, तथा मेरे ममेरे भाई का बेटा उत्कर्ष पार्क में क्रिकेट खेल रहे थे, और उनमें से किसी ने बॉल को बेहद ज़ोर से मारा, जिससे मेरी कार का शीशा टूट गया...

जब मैंने उनसे शॉट मारने वाले के बारे में सवाल किया, तो उनके जवाब थे...
  • सार्थक ने कहा, "शॉट निष्ठा या उत्कर्ष ने मारा था..."
  • निष्ठा ने कहा, "जिज्ञासा या मैंने शॉट नहीं मारा था..."
  • उत्कर्ष ने कहा, "ये दोनों झूठ बोल रहे हैं..."
  • अम्बर ने कहा, "दोनों में से (सार्थक और निष्ठा) एक झूठ बोल रहा है, और दूसरा सच..."
  • जिज्ञासा ने कहा, "नहीं अम्बर, यह सच नहीं है..."
मैं जानता था कि इनमें से तीन बच्चे हमेशा सच बोलते हैं, जबकि बाकी दो हमेशा झूठ बोलते हैं, इसलिए मैं तुरंत समझ गया, शॉट किसने मारा था... परन्तु क्या आप लोग भी जान पाएंगे...?

Now, the same riddle in English...

Special Note: If you succeed in solving this one, well and good; but in case, you don't, just leave a comment, and I will mail the answer to you...

My kids Saarthak and Nishtha, my brother's kids Jigyaasa and Ambar, and my cousin's son Utkarsh were playing cricket in the park, and one of them hit the ball so hard, that it landed straight on the window, and the glass shattered...

When I asked them, who hit the ball, this is what each of them said...
  • Saarthak said, "It was Nishtha or Utkarsh..."
  • Nishtha said, "Neither Jigyaasa nor I did it..."
  • Utkarsh said, "Both of them are lying..."
  • Ambar said, "No, one of them (Saarthak and Nishtha) is lying, the other is speaking the truth..."
  • Jigyaasa said, "No, Ambar, that is not true..."
And as I knew, that three of these kids always tell the truth, and the other two tell lies all the time, I immediately understood who had hit the ball... But can you guys also make that out...?
