Nasrudin saw a man sitting dispiritedly at the side of the road. And asked him what troubled him.
“There is nothing of interest in life, my brother,” said the man.
Nasrudin stories are always funny and insightful – and this story is indeed so, and very well-narrated. A delight to read.
Here’s a Nasrudin story I wrote in verse that I hope you and visitors will love:
NASRUDIN, DONKEY, and WILD ANIMALS
O, all day
is making all this din
in his home
beating drums and his pots and pans
Hee-haw – haw! haw! haw!
And his Donkey too
master and Donkey
making all this noise
O Nasrudin, why
do you make this din and noise –
you and your Donkey
all day long?
O, says Nasrudin,
Donkey and I are
trying to frighten away
all tigers and wild animals
to keep away from our town
But Nasrudin – there isn’t a single tiger
or a wild animal
a thousand miles
round our town!
See! says Nasrudin
Our method works!
