Warning letters from God of death, which we ignored
(Based on a pretty well written story written by scholarly friend Vasu Iyengar. Thanks to him)
One person called Suresh took bath in the ganges ,
And while he was returning he met a black man,
And when they started talking with each other ,
Suresh told everything about himself to that new black friend,
But later Suresh realised that the black stranger,
Had not told anything about himself and when asked ,
He told , “Do not ask about me for I am a friendless peson,
For once people know about me they get scared and run away.”
When Suresh insisted , he told , “I am Yama , the god of death,
No person in the world likes me to come to his house.”
Suresh told , “I do not have any problem , provided ,
You send me a warning letter before you come to my house.”
Yama agreed and Suresh thought that since ,
He will get a warning letter , he can settle everything,
And happily go away from the world with Yama.
And started living very happily and without botheration.
The hairs of Surssh turned White, his eye sight reduced,
All his teeth fell down and due to joint pain he became unable to walk,
And one day Yama came to him and told in a friendly voice,
“Please come with me Suresh, as your time has come ..
Suresh shouted at God Yama and told that he was cheat ,
AS he did not bother to write a warning letter to him.
lord yama laughed and told , “My friend , i did.
My first letter was the whitening of your hair,
I thought you would understand that I was telling you,
That though your hair is white , your mind was black ,
But instead you purchased the best dye and coloured your hair.
Then I made your eye sight less thinking that you would,
Understand and turn your sight inward but you purchased spectacles,
And then I took away your teeth thinking that you would ,
Stop desiring for delightful food but you put on dentures.
Then I made your joints stiff thinking that when unable to walk,
You would be always sit at home and meditate on God ,
But you had hip and joint replacement surgery and
I cannot send any more letters to a fool like you,.,
