Master of multi tasking
Folk tale rewritten by
(This is a well known folk tale and I was reminded about it ,
by reading a Tamil post by my friend Sri Krishnamurthy Iyer . My thanks to him)
One king in turkey while hunting lost his way,
And took shelter in a house of a weaver in a village ,
But the weaver did not know that it was the king,
And next day early morning the king woke up.
He saw that the weaver was weaving threads ,
He also saw that a rope was tied in his hand ,
And when the king asked he said, “ the other end,
Is tied to a cradle and if baby wakes up , I will pull it.
The king noticed that near him was a stick tied to a black cloth,
And the weaver said that if he moves it the crows coming ,
To ear grains outside would fly away and then,
The king saw that a bell was tied on the weaver’s neck.
For a curious glance the weaver replied that by shaking,
Them he can drive away rats which come to trouble him,
And then the king noticed that lot of children outside ,
Was being taught by the weaver , their lessons.
When king asked , “Why not call them inside?”
He replied that while learning lessons they were s dancing,
On wwet clay standing there , so that it would become ready ,
To make a pot and the king appreciated him .
The king said you are the master of multi tasking ,
And the weaver smiled and told , true king,
I have married a Kashmiri girl and I am learning ,
From her carpet weaving and Sanskrit also,
