God Indra Meets a Logician

Once there lived a king who was as cerebral as he was kind and altruistic.  So much so that he had earned the name of “The Intelligent king” ( If you are thinking I did it to avoid the work involved in thinking of a name , you though right).

Once there was a famine in the kingdom of TGK . It continued for five years and caused much agony and pain to the king seeing his people die.

Like any Good Hindu King, he set on appeasing God Indra. After months of praying, one day God Indra appeared in front of him.

GI : You are granted a wish all right. Now will you stop nagging me with the chanting of 1,001 pandits ?

TIK : Bhagvan, my people are dying. Bring this femine to an end. Quench the thirst of our land with a good rain.

You know how Indra loves to test people. So he decided to test the King.

GI : Well, let’s have a deal here. You give me your most beloved thing in the world and I will make it rain.

I bet you have heard the story till this point. This is where my story turns into something different. Read on……… Or write your own ending after this.

TIK : If I were ready to sacrifice my most beloved thing to make it rain, won’t that make rain my most beloved thing ?

GI ( Baffled ) : What ?

TIK : Rain has to be my most beloved thing, if I gave my most beloved thing for it. Right ?

GI : That’s not how it works. You Sacrifice your child and I will make it rain.

TIK : I think you don’t see where I am coming from. Why Would I sacrifice my child ?

GI : To make it rain .

TIK : Doesn’t it mean that I love rain more than my child ?

GI : Yes, it does.

TIK : So that make rain my most beloved thing, not my child. I have to sacrifice rain. But if I do that you will be obliged to make rain, which will render the original logic invalid.

GI : I have a terrible headache. Could I get an Aspirin.

TIK : Now you are talking. What’s in it for me ?

GI : I will make it rain for an Aspirin.

So that’s how an Aspirin saved the kingdom of TIK from a famine. 

Tempted to write a different ending ? Go on, tell me how you would have ended the story with your comments.

Purpose of Life

Many many philosophers have tried to answer this question in their own way. Last week after having heard a self proclaimed Guru on TV, I realized It’s about time I throw my two cents in.

I think the purpose of life is to reproduce. (Did I hear you say what a pervert )

That’s the whole God’s plan. He ( execuse me for being male chauvernist here) wants you to find a good partner, make out and then die. Now, I know I am going to have to rephrase it so that people don’t feel offended with the fact that the meaning of life is reduced to such a basic instinct.

” Our purpose in life is to take our race forward, to preserve our best genes and pass them on to the next generations. We keep reproducing better better offsprings and hence keep evolving”. Wonder what a little rephrasing can do. From a filthy bugger our role has just been upgraded to a noble one.

But seriously, if you are obsessed with it ( you know what I mean by it), don’t feel bad. It’s only that you are take the job God gave you too seriously. next time tell the girls to be co-operative in putting the God’s plan into action. Perverts are just workaholics.

For me, I believe in overtime too. 

Humorosophy : Numerology

Last month I got to know that there is something striking about me to some people , I am not talking of my lean physique but my Numero Uno Status. Yes, I am a number 1 in numerology ( According to Gregorian Calender). Very flattering. Numerology is very intriguing with all the calculations involved, but I can hardly call it a science. I think it was invented as a hoax, later on when it went out of hands they freaked out and never told anyone it was a hoax.

To start with there is no God’s Calender to follows. Today’s Gregorian Calender was adopted in the 15th or 16th Century, before that the church used Julian calender. There were others too the roman one being a notable one. Notable because the names of the months came from Roman – It had 10 months. December was derived from DECA- The 10th.

Let’s try to calcule the life path number of Pappu ( who can’t dance) who is born today. Where the life takes the poor bugger depends on the day he decided to pop out of the cozy Amniotic Sac. A Pervert or a saint ; a Vessel or a lord ; straight or Bi ; All this is written in numbers- Right ?

Here is an interpretation on the 3 major calenders that we could use . Feel free to bring your own Hindu, Islamic, Inca or Mayan calender if you feel like.

I head that numerology is an old science- must be older than 15the Century. It’s not that far back in time. Vasco De Gama brought his fata payjama to India in 15th Century. Guru Nanak Dev was also born in 15th Centry. So it’s only fair to consider the ancient calenders for Numerology.

Gregorian

6th Dec 2010 (06 /12/2010)

Number 3 :  Entertainer, Poet, Writer, Painter

Julian

23rd Nov 2010 ( 23/11/2010)

Number : 1 Power, Leadership

French

16 Frimaire An 219 (16 /03 /219)

Number : 4  self-sacrificing, martyrs

I have no doubt that Number 1 is number of a leader, my dilemma is the choice of calender. I can be number 1 in one calender and number 9 in another. Which calender does God follow ?  Any suggestions ?
