They say God is love. And I believe I am God…so where is my love? Working in Cognizant Technologies Solution, Navallur, Chennai office*?
For those who think there is no God, try getting an electrician to set right your blown fuse, or try getting a puncture-wala to set right your flat tyre …on a Sunday morning. You will realize that just because you don`t see him and can`t find him…it doesn`t mean that there is no God.
Probably…God was readily available earlier. Probably…he stopped mingling with rest of the World after he had a bad relationship. I think so because, I once saw a lady shopping alone and a message on her T-shirt said: “My husband and I parted for religious reasons. He thought he was God.” My guess is…she was God`s wife and left him because he didn`t do the dishes and change the nappy pads. Probably, God is getting over the shock of rejection.
With God on leave with personal problems…people have taken recourse to holy books like Gita, Bible, Koran and Sri Guru Granth Sahib. I respect them for they are good…and don`t preach evil.
Like always …I once had a friend who asked me, “What happens if we drop a holy book on a mouse? Doesn`t the holy book kill the mouse?”
“Yes”, I said.
“Doesn`t that make the holy book an evil book?”
“Off course not. You dropped it.” a religious me exclaims.
“OK. What if it fell by itself …like during an earthquake or something.”
I think for a while…and thinking that I got a clincher, I shoot back: “How is the book to blame? It was the earthquake which dropped the book…”
My friend removed all false hopes of me winning the conversation by saying, “Wasn`t the earthquake caused by God? Guess, in such a situation…both God and the holy book become evil.”
Trying hard to stage a comeback….I assured him that God and the holy book don`t become evil…if it were a computer mouse. My friend gave me a stare and walked away towards intelligent company.
God or no God…the God-men sure get paid well. Look at all that money being minted by dozens of God-men speaking on different TV channels in the mornings and evenings. So much so, Mandira Bedi is being given a run for her money. While discussing these God-men, a friend said: “Hey…he is working for God. And I am sure God is definitely a better paymaster than the average Multinational IT company.” I agree.
I know I believe in God…but for the sake of others….I pray that if God really exists…he should send down strawberry flavored rain in Chennai. Besides licking their lips while fleeing their homes…people will start believing in God….
