Mulla & the rains

Mulla Nassrudin is a wise man who always come out successfully from any challenges put to him with his wit. He was living with his wife in his small house. It was very cloudy one day. Mulla was standing near the window and enjoying the cold breeze. He saw a holy man passing by his place when suddenly it started raining. 

Mulla called the holy man and said "Rain is a blessing from God, so why do you fear and running away from it. You should enjoy it" . The man hearing this had no other option but walked in the heavy rains, fully drowned.

Next day, mulla was passing the holy man's place and it started raining. Mulla out of fear of getting wet, soon started running towards a shade. The holy man was startled by this action of Mulla and called him "Mulla, yesterday you said, rain is a blessing from God. So why are you running away from it ?" To which Mulla hurriedly replied, "Oh Holy man! i am not running away from it but saving myself from committing the greatest sin of 'stepping' on the 'blessing' from God!" and soon reached a shady place.

Hearing this, the holy man went dumb! See how clever our Mulla is in giving a quick & apt reply.

Mira - Mulla stories are like Akbar & Birbal or Tenalirama. We must appreciate that in those days itself there were similar people who were witty and talked about morals. I was just to write one story and you have started. Great story - one of my favourites
