Forgive me for sharing a most ‘shared’ joke :
A man happened to drop or lose a coin in a dirty drain. He was scared of putting his hand in the dirty drain. So, he just stood there and started chanting :
“O Jesus, help me, help me, find my coin” !!
After some time, one of his friends, came and asked him :
“have you gone mad ? You are a hindu, why are you praying and requesting the wrong deity and God ?
And the first man replied :
” It is a dirty drain and it is a trivial matter of five rupee coin only. Why put my Ishwar in such dirty business ?”
In India, we often talk of unity in diversity and our deities and Gods are also used to such TD’s ( temporary duties ), over-time / multi tasking, emergency duties and inter-religion / inter-departmental and inter cultural postings & assignments.
Just to give you another example, many married Indian-male ( Hindu) film stars and celebs are like a pressure cooker with a weak and loose safety valve. Obviously, it is a part of their professional duties to fall in ‘true’ love with any female colleague at any time, irrespective of their ( male stars’ ) age. Nature’s call you know.
Strangely, such moments of heat also bring in them a change of Faith. Converting to Islam, deserting / demoting their faithful obstructing wife and having a go at another unsuspecting woman and making her their additional wife, is a matter of routine for them and… very effective too !!
What baffles me sometimes is, why Hindu and Muslim leaders / scholars, don’t object ?
But then we live in very uncertain times.
Today a fellow ‘lover-boy’ needs a safe passage / fire cover, tomorrow ‘they’ might also need one !!
Love conquers All and comes to All !!
And…. lets not forget that religion is there…. to help the….. ‘mankind’…more manly the Men are….. more kind ( and helpful ) the religion gets….. !!
Moreover, unity is strength. Man is a social animal and animals hunt better in a herd – when they stay together. And as long as ‘men’ stick together, both women and God, can be hunted and exploited !!
What do you say ?
Waiting for your views, feed backs, perspectives …..!!
And eagerly waiting for the Day when… some wives shall have…. two….. parallel / fully functional husbands in full working condition.
May God bring that Day ( A Real Judgement Day for some and Doomsday for some ) soon !!
‘religiously’ religion-less and ‘religion-less-ly’ religious !!
