‘Calendar vs. Calendar’- God’s “ACR” !!

27 Dec


These days I rarely find any one ready to make a ‘good / kind entry’ in God’s ACR ( Annual Confidential Report ). And I don’t blame them either. Children are being killed, helpless girls are being raped. Violence, injustice, cheating, corruption……everywhere…… Heroes are losing, villains are winning or so…. it…..seems. And …”HE” definitely….promised He shall come every time evil starts getting an upper hand ( “yada…yada……”).

People have started asking all sorts of questions, wondering whether God has become too weak to help us or whether He has become too “old” to help anyone in need or He has simply ‘retired” from active service or taken some…….. time….. off or He simply is not a good God !!

The other day, in my dream, I happened to interact with a common house-fly and even she was very very angry at God. Not ready to put even one kind word, letter, coma, in God’s ACR. This house fly, shared her life’s woes with me. She said she had spent her whole life singing God’s praises and still, she had always struggled to fend for her and her family.

In her own words, ” I am at the fag end of my life and nothing good ever happened to me in my entire life. It’s so unfair, you know” !!

In the morning when I woke up, even then I was sorry for that fly. That day when I met my doctor friend, I shared that fly’s tragic story with him. And he started laughing. After I expressed my shock at his laughter, he told me that “an average house fly has a life span of 4 to 7 days. The fly in the dream, simply was pulling your leg”.

I was definitely shocked to hear that. But later, I could not help smiling at that naughty fly !!

After many days of rational thinking /analysis, I reached the conclusion that the fly can not be blamed. For us it is a matter of four five days but for her ‘it….is…… a…. life time’ !! Her life-span, her calendar, is …..different and our calendar is….. different !!

Legend has it that once Lord Shiva felt kind of offended at what Goddess Parvati had said, and He, the perfect gentleman that He is, did nothing but simply went and sat in ‘samaadhi’ (trance ). Goddess Parvati as the perfect wife, knew what to do in such situations. She simply went and sat….. quietly….. near the feet of Lord Shiva, as was her usual practice.

And He opened His eyes, after……… 48,000…. years !!

When I put two and two together, I understood and was able to solve this ‘cosmic puzzle / riddle’. All this confusion was caused by the different calendars prevalent in the Universe. For Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, it was just a routine “lovers’ tiff”. Fight in the morning, love & peace in the evening but….. we all…..would take hundreds of births during that DAY’S time.

But then, surely God deserves a Day Out.

“Tomorrow” He…shall…. do the “needful” as per everyone’s individual file and merit !!

Justice has prevailed and shall prevail !!

So, ladies and gentlemen, with your permission, I add this, in God’s ACR :

“An excellent God” !!

    What’s God’s ACR? You’re right, God’s time isn’t our time.

    Interesting article, Surinder Sir! There’s another interesting story about God’s Calendar. King Indradyumna, who is supposed to have got the Puri Temple made, went to invite Lord Brahma to inaugurate the temple, and was asked to wait for sometime – like a few hours or a day. By the time he came back, there was another ruler presiding his kingdom, who found the original temple by means of excavations, and did not accept Indradyumna to be his predecessor. There was a very Old Tortoise said to be hundreds of years old who told the truth to the king. Some facts might be missing here – but nonetheless, the point is, there’s an eon that passes in a wink of God’s eye. 🙂

        I have developed the habit of learning from youngsters.

        You see I had to learn how to use a mobile and a computer, from my sons and now I am very happy and comfortable. Hope to get the same happiness and comfort from you sir !!

        we youngsters may just help you learn about gadgets sir – you elders teach us about life, which, sadly, most youngsters do not have time to learn or understand. Will surely try to share what I can. Regards, Amit

    Loved this. I think Krishn erred by promising us of his return. We are lamely hoping that he will shoulder the entire burden.
    We quite forget that he guided and mentored, but ultimately Arjun had to use his own skills, expertise and efforts to win a war.
    So as humanity, we better pull up our socks too.

      Very well said.

      Lord Krishna did not “err”.

      He has just taken a “Day Off” ( by his Calendar, of course ),

      Ha…ha !!

        No, I meant by assuring us humans – and thus making us too dependent on him to arrive and clean our mess.

        I totally agree, Madam.
