God was in the process of creating the universe.
And he was explaining to his subordinates
“Look everything should be in balance”.
For example, after every 10 deer there should be a lion.
Look here my fellow angels, here is the country of the United States.
I have blessed them with prosperity and money.
But at the same time I have given them insecurity and tension….
And here is Africa.
I have given them beautiful nature.
But at the same time, I have given them climatic extremes.
And here is South America.
I have given them lots of forests.
But at the same time, I have given them lesser land so that they would
have to cut off the forests…
So you see fellows, everything should be in balance.
One of the angels asked…
“God, what is this extremely beautiful country here?”
God said……. “Ahah…that is the crown piece of all.
” INDIA “
My most precious creation.
It has understanding and friendly People. Sparkling streams and serene
A culture which speaks of the great tradition that they live.
Technologically brilliant and with a heart of gold…..
The angel was quite surprised:
“But god you said everything should be in balance.”
God replied —
“Look at the neighbours I gave them.”
Last week, a hapless victim fell prey to the overenthusiastic Bombay’s local train commuters.
Our hero, a man from Pune, wanted to go to Matunga, but as luck and trains would have it, boarded a fast train not halting at his destination. He panicked on realising his mistake but by then the local had started moving. On seeing his plight, a sympathetic co-passenger decided to come to his rescue.
It seemed that he had been commuting by that particular train (6:03pm Kasara Fast) for the past 6 years and had noticed that the train always slowed down just before Matunga station and crawled at a snail’s pace while passing through it. He told the man to jump out of the running train as it slowed down and that with a little bit of fleet-footedness, he would make it safely on terra firma. However, knowing the man’s inexperience, he added some words of caution:
“Keep running the moment you jump or you’ll fall. Just keep running.” He stressed the word “running” lest the man not know the laws of motion. The train did slow down just before Matunga station and at the prompting of his mentor, our hero jumped out of the train and started running as if all hell had broken loose.
What he didn’t realise, of course, was that he was running parallel to the train instead of running away from it. Meanwhile, the train slowed down further, so that the man was running faster than the train. In the process, he reached the door of the next compartment and the footboard commuters there pulled him in thinking he was trying to board the train! To his agony, the train picked up speed and sped past Matunga and his new co-passengers started to congratulate him on how lucky he had been, until he told them that they had actually undone what he had done with great difficulty.
Those standing at the door of his “ex-compartment” had witnessed the whole drama and just couldn’t stop laughing at the poor man’s situation, while he grinned sheepishly!!!
Ae dil, hai mushkil, jeena yahaan
Zara hatke, zara bachke, yeh hai MUMBAI meri jaan!!
