Good Animal Lost...... Bad Human Gained

Raj had arrived at Maximum City in search of livelihood. As he disembarked the train that brought him from the southern tip of the continent, he saw the stream of passengers heading for the exit and followed suit. Having heard tales of the city from travelers he was wonderstruck at seeing the tall edifices, with its gothic architecture. Wandering the streets not knowing where he could find abode, he arrived at the entrance of a Chemical store.
As he sat tired and forlorn, Shaw the owner walked in and wanted to know who he was. Raj told him he was in search of food to quell his hunger. Shaw said he could be employed if he was willing to learn and earn his living. Terms agreed, Raj started as a Helper. It was the only menial task available. Unloading stocks from the mezzanine when required for sale.
One day the counter salesman absented.  Shaw called Raj and asked him how far he had studied. Pat came the reply, ‘Matric fail Sir.
Can you stand in for the counter salesman for today?
Ever willing, Raj took charge of his new assignment and at closing hours, Shaw noticed he did a better sale for the day. As the shutters were being downed, Shaw asked Raj what was his paycheck.
Raj said ‘100 a day Sir’.
Shaw promoted Raj to counter salesman @ 150 per day. Raj was all Smiles. He  knew why they called this the 'City of Dreams.' Months passed by and the business grew. Shaw established a Manufacturing facility for the Chemicals he sold. Shaw was now Director of the establishment.
Once an ‘Advance’ was collected for a consignment. Unfortunately it was not available on Time. The client who placed the order created a ruckus demanding refund. No sooner had the client left the Consignment arrived. The outdoor salesman not being at hand, Shaw asked Raj if he could deliver the goods. He knew the client would not want the goods as his needs were met. Under instruction of not asking for balance payment Raj had only to deliver the goods and return. He did, but on arrival presented Shaw with a balance check and another Order from the client.
Shaw was astounded and asked Raj how he could do it. Raj told him how he explained the usefulness of the product. Impressed the client multiplied the order.
Shaw asked Raj what was his paycheck. ‘150 per day Sir,’ came the reply.How far had he studied. ‘Matric fail Sir.’  
Well said Shaw, from today you are an Outdoor Salesman @ 300 per day. The business expanded. The Chemical manufacturing facility grew by leaps and bounds.    
25 years passed by. It was the silver jubilee celebrations of Shaw Enterprises. Shaw was Chairman and Raj the Managing Director.
The chairman wanted the celebrations at the grounds adjacent to their first store. As they arrived, in their long drawn cars the Chairman placed a hand on the MD’s shoulders and said ‘Raj do you remember 25 years before when it all started between us.’  How could Raj forget. And as the Chairman waxed eloquent, Raj excused himself and ran towards the store. Climbed the stairs and began unloading the Cans. Later as Raj got back the Chairman who was waiting for the event to be declared open, asked Raj how far he studied  ‘Matric fail Sir.’. And what is your paycheck today ‘10,000 per day sir.’ 'Why what happened?' I was wondering why you ran into the store.' I noticed there was a help short, and so the unloading was not happening as wanted.

The Chairman wondered whether he lost a good helper and got a bad Managing Director.  

Sometimes the way we live, God maybe wondering if he has lost a Good Animal and got a Bad Human.

The Night Watchman

He was the New Factory Manager and the Company was British. Raj was his name and the Raj was also British. He had just received a telegram that announced the arrival of a delegation from London and as part of their itinerary included a visit to this factory, which would find mention in their report to the Directors back home.  It was the prerogative of every Manager to put his best foot forward at such times.
A favourable report meant your next posting could be on a plum assignment Overseas. The Factory got a new coat of whitewash, while all the machines a fresh shade of Opal Green. The day the delegation arrived, the factory was spotlessly clean.

Someone noticed the handrails and balusters looked their age. Immediately the polishers were summoned to give it fresh lease of life as though this was the cream on the cake in welcoming the Guest.
Not to take a chance with any employee fingerprinting the freshly coated handrails, one of the polishers

who seemed equally polished at his speech, was placed at the landing. His task was to caution all approaching of the wet paint on the railings.

The delegation had come and gone. Years went by and every morning he would religiously take to his post in the midst of all cacophony of the loud machinery in the Factory. He was now a regular, made friends with all and had a Money lending Fund operational.

All were in Gratis for his funds helped them tide over difficult times. He stood at his post for 5 years now, until one day he stopped attending work. Recently he had been advanced 9 Million as loan and a couple of the staff stood guarantee.
Until now, no Manager ever ventured to ask him his line of work. No one ever asked why he sat - where he sat. The management tried calling all resources they hired from, only to realize he was never on any of their rolls.
Sitting in his villa somewhere on the coast of Goa, is a bloke who had strategically planned his retirement and been managing a Fund, estimated at 10 Million and still counting as he gulped his Feni'.

And no one even knew his whereabouts or his name.

The Big Fight....

Energy had split at the Big Bang and kept spreading itself. Energy wanted to be everywhere, and in all forms conceived. This started the evolution of Creation.
Creation of the Heavens as an abode for the splits of energy. Creation of the Stars as far as it could travel and fill space with its light.
Among these Creations was that of the Earth. Creation of Water to fill the Earth. Creation of creatures to fill land, water and air. The process of creation was slow.
Energy was not satisfied with all its creations, and thought of creating one like itself. He had to choose a split of energy to give life to this creation called 'Man'. The split nearest to the Supreme Energy assumed he would be assigned this task. Energy picked another to give man life. This caused a Revolution of sorts in the Heavens.The nearest until now was also a powerful source of energy, but not Supreme. The other nearest split was the 'Prince of Light'. 
Soon the Heavens thundered with the warring sides. The one who had led the revolt was pushed out of the realms of light into the darkness of space.Energy wanted to be everywhere but could not. Thus was born the 'Prince of Darkness' who with all splits of energy who owed him allegiance spread themselves and took control of the Night.
Where Light could not gain access, Darkness took over.
Man born of the likeness of the Supreme, was tempted through thought by the 'Prince of Darkness' to disobey the Creator. This caused the Fall of Man. While the splits of energy who were aligned with the 'Supreme' were assigned different roles in the Heavens, all had to be continually in Praise of the Supreme. Soon they realized that Man had the senses which they had not. This caused another Revolution, with many of them tired of Glorifying, now wanting to experience life in the human form. Supreme let them make their choice, on the precondition that they could enter the Heavens only when 'Pure'. This was more difficult than imagined. The 'Prince of Darkness' could now increase numbers, by advising humans to disobey the Creator. The fight started eons ago, continues to this day. How have we led our lives in this lifetime?

Have we been led by the 'Prince of Light' or the 'Prince of Darkness'..??
