Case 1: A bird was sitting at the top of a tree . A rabbit came and asked her ” Can i sit like you and do nothing all day long ”. The bird replied ” Sure Why not ” . All of a sudden a tiger appeared , jumped on the rabbit and ate it .
* To be sitting and doing nothing , you must be sitting very high , high up .
Case 2 : A little bird was flying south for the winter . It was so cold , the bird froze and fell to the ground in a large field . While it lay there a cow came by and dropped some dung on it . As the frozen bird lay there on the pile of cow dung, it began to realize how warm it was.
The dung was actually thawing him out .He lay there all warm and happy , and began to sing for joy . A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate . Following the sound , the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung , and propmtly dug him out and ate him .
* Not everyone who drops shit on you is your enemy
* Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend
* And when you are in a deep shit , keep your mouth shut .
There was this article in the NYT yesterday, it talks about the progress being made in India and what are the blockades and how are they handling it. Pretty interesting read.
