The Berlin Wall divided Berlin into two halves during the Cold War. It became a symbol of the helplessness it put and placed families into.The world could only gape and gaze on while on either side of the wall families were broken up , severed from kith and kin and left to be devastated . Similar berlin walls have popped up around the world wreaking the same havoc and destruction - tribal killings , job discrimination , human trafficking etc.
A Farmer's Lesson Plan
Once upon a time in China , a farmer who had gotten on in age, began to be perturbed and riled by the feasting and pleasure-seekings of his three sons.He had toiled himself to dry marrow to build up this farm business.One night while starring up into the skies an idea rode in into his mind.
The next morning he called his sons and said: 'Sons,I'm gone - I might die any day now.This farm is here for you guys but it's hard work.Look at me , a scarecrow of bones.But never mind all that.There's a secret . I need to tell you this before it's too late. I heard from your grandfather that...that.. there's huge treasure buried beneath our farmlands.....' hardly had he wanted to say the rest when.. when his sons.. just VANISHED ! As the farmer peered out the window , he saw the eldest son and his two brothers running to the nether ends of the farm with hoes in hands.
They began digging,turning the clods and soil over but careful not to harm the fruit trees and crops just budding.They dug and dug, day after day.The rains came. But they kept on at the digging.Soon it was all over.Dig they did with all the arms and energies they had.But there was no treasure found.
One evening as they sat down , eyes met eyes.They looked at each other in askance.Perhaps the crafty , wily old fox had had them ?
But, meanwhile, the rains and turning over of the soils brought one thing - a bumper crop and piles of cash.They realised then , that hard work and perseverance were all the hidden treasure their genius of an old man had fooled them into learning and meant !
A Croc Nightmare..
A Cry Of The Chickens
Not very long ago in an Asian nation the price of poultry in the marketplace fell off the cliff and whole chickens could be bought for the price of a cuppa.The farmers fell into delirium and worn out by the government’s snail attitude towards their plight decided to strike home their grief.
They loaded their lorries with chickens of every colour and size and drove them to Parliament’s doors unbeknown to anyone but themselves.Meanwhile on that day ,in Parliament as the lawmakers sat down to sip their coffees like they did every other day , there came sounds of what sounded like cackling at the doors.The cackling grew louder and louder and suddenly thousands of chicks came into the hallways and into the meeting hall.For a tense moment the lawmakers stared at the chickens before hell broke loose. The hungry chickens, starved for this moment , flew upon and clawed onto the lawmakers.They chased some down alleys , seized upon them from the air , jumped atop desks and started chomping on sandwiches , cookies and whatever. Cups and mugs went flying. And as they went about their tasks, the smell of chicken excrement filled Parliament House’s air. Cries of anguish , screams of terror got drowned by the hoots and chuckles of the cackling chickens.
As the fowls indulged in an eating and clawing orgy the nation’s eyes [live telecasts of proceedings]were turned to watch the carnage. Never before had they seen such clowning and anguish and dement upon the faces of their lawmakers.A scene that stood out was the battle atop the Speaker’s table.A cockerel flew at him [call it chemistry],clawed his paling cheeks and as his spectacles fell to the floor , the cockerel clambered atop his head and egested.He never for once thought that he could run as fast as he did that day , fleeing past doors like the Flash.
When it was all over men and women lay sprawled and prostrate everywhere.The chickens lay, some standing, panting too as ambulances fled with screaming sirens towards hospitals and troops rushed in to quell the coup d’etat of the chickens .
Though we can’t resort to do this but one thing we all know from experience is that , that’s what can happen to us emotionally when we ‘re pushed towards financial cliffs or / and when our financial trees wither or are uprooted.
