Few Stories !

Justice

One night a feast was held in the palace, and there came a man and prostrated himself before the prince, and all the feasters looked upon him; and they say that one of his eyes was out and that the empty socket bled.

And the prince inquired of him,

"What has befallen you?"

And the man replied,

"O Prince, I am by profession a theif, and this night, because there was no moon, I went to rob the money-changer's shop, and as I climbed in through the window I made a mistake and entered the weaver's shop, and in the dark I ran into the weaver's loom and my eye was plucked out. And now, O prince, I ask for justice upon the weaver."

Then the prince sent for the weaver and he came, and it was decreed that one of his eyes should be plucked out.

"O prince," said the weaver, "the decree is just. It is right that one of my eyes be taken. And yet, alas ! both are necessary to me in order that I may see the two sides of the cloth that I weave. But I have a neighbour, a cobbler, who has also two eyes, and in his trade both eyes are not neccessary."

Then the prince sent for the cobbler. And he came.

And they took out one of the cobbler's two eyes.

And justice was satisfied.

The Fox

A fox looked at his shadow at sunrise and said,

"I will have a camel for lunch today."

And all morning he went about looking for camels. But at noon he saw his shadow again....

and said....., " A mouse will do."

Said a Blade of Grass

Said a blade of grass to an autum leaf,

"You make such a noise falling ! You scatter all my winter dreams."

Said the leaf indignant,

"Low-born and low-dwelling!

Songless, peevish thing !

You live not in the upper air and you can not tell the sound of singing."

Then the autum leaf lay down upon the earth and slep. And when spring came she waked again - and she was a blade of grass.

And when it was autum and her winter sleep was upon her, and above her through all the air leaves were falling, she muttered to herself,

"O these autumn leaves !

They make such a noise !

They scatter all my winter dreams."

    SUPERB, FANTASTIC, EXCELLENT.

    Ronie’s school is adjacent to a Mental Hospital and very often, school children enjoy watching their funny activities from their classrooms. He explained today’s happenings to his Dad :-

    Ronie : Today they staged a drama where all gathered around the stage. Senior guy was elected their PM who allotted Ministries; all were happy, clapping and making noises.

    Dad (enjoying) : Really, then what happened ?

    Ronie : Ministry of Telecom was allotted to an ugly looking guy. Upon allotment of this Ministry, he became upset came near to PM, shook hand, turned back and all of a sudden……….

  5. Hmmm... what a nice justice! lol... i think this story highlights three issues:
    1-The theif "accidently" went to weaver's loom [to commit a crime :D]
    2-Weaver should not have been called as he did not take theif's eye intentionally...
    3-How come a third person's been dragged to this scenario. Hehe, he did not have ANY link to this scenario. He was just mending a shoe one fine morning and a courtman came saying "prince wants to take your eye!" :D

  16. hmm....Dear Stranger....

    Words have power yet words are so cheap....they can't fill anyones' belly...and filling up the belly is not word's job....

    Word's job...is to give you another world to explore and sometimes....words gives you power to win..that new world.

    I am honored that you came....

    Yes...May Allah help all the human beings to prevail the peace and love among them...

    Thanks again for coming again. I am honored.
