Truth Is A Pinprick

Friday, March 4th, 2011

Nazir had a friend who loved to blow big bubbles. The bubbles get bigger each day,defying gravity. He seemed to have an inexhaustible supply of hot air. Nazir encouraged him in this dubious talent.

Except one day Nazir pricked his latest bubble with a sharp pin. It burst, creating a big mess.

“What did you do that for?”

“Truth can be as sharp as a pin.”

Singing To The River

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

Akbar loved his singing and wanted to appoint him the court singer. He refused.

” I am not the best singer in the country.”

“So, who is?” asked the King.

“Come with me, you will hear”

They went to an isolated rock next to the river, a day’s travel away. The most divine music was pouring forth out of a man sitting on the rock, alone.

“Wow. He indeed is the greatest singer. Why is he so much better than you?”

” Because I sing for the King and he sings to the river.”
