..............INDIAN ELEPHANT OF THE HINDU MICE
They danced around its feet. Looking up, it seemed huge, the size of a mountain.
"Our elephant is huge, strong and almighty," they cried in joy and excitement, trailing behind it. Cheers went up on all sides.
They were very rich Hindu mice. They rode limousines, lived in bungalows, wore velvet and drank champagne. There was no dearth of wealth or the ingenuity to make money. And they had the biggest animal on earth on their patch.
Unknown to the mice, that were hardly taller than the toe nails of the elephant, the mahout on top of the beast was ABDUL KALAM, a Musalman-Beiman. According to the Act of Partition, 1947, he had to be in Pakistan.
They came to a fork in the road. One side led to a fertile valley, the other to the dry desert.
Lo and behold, quite unexpectedly, the mahout on top, hardly visible to the mice on ground, led the huge animal towards the desert. There it was sure to die of thirst and heat.
YES, INDIA IS TOO HUGE A COUNTRY FOR THE TINY INHABITANTS, THE HINDUS, WHO ARE THE SIZE OF MICE.
The elephant is already mutilated and walks with a limp. And now ABDUL KALAM, the mahout, has directed it towards the dry desert.
