A Challenging Puzzle (3 in 1)

My intelligent Readers,

Welcome. The title is exciting, isn’t it? No any preamble, nothing.  Please go to the Puzzle straightway below:

“There are two similar gates, one leading to Heaven and the other to Hell. I am sure you will like to go to Heaven; but imaginary, not really! Everybody is willing to go to Heaven, but nobody is prepared to die. Praying to God, “Live long.”

Let us move further. Two gate-keepers are already there to ask for. But, tragedy is there; one is a liar and the other a truth-speaker. You can understand who may be representing Heaven and who the Hell.

Part – I

Now, you have to form a single question and ask to any one you like. Nothing is written on any one’s forehead, otherwise it would have been easy for you to know the qualities of the gate-keepers.

This puzzle is really a puzzle because there is no any indication from the narrator’s side. All you have to do is to form such a question with which you can get the answer through which gate you can go to the Heaven. Being the puzzle abstruse, please don’t waste your time more than 5 minutes.

If you raise your hands up, go to my previous blog – “Equivocal Pronunciation” dated 14th June, 2007 (Annexure – I). There you will find the ready-made question to be asked for your purpose.

Part – II

In the title, (3 in 1) is written. You have missed the first enjoyment by failing to form the question. No matter. Now, you can ask that ready-made question to anybody you like with no any tension. The gate-keeper whom you ask the question will answer with either ‘this gate’ or ‘that gate’. You may name the gates, like A or B, if you like for your convenience. Now, the acid test of your reason starts. You have to decide whether to follow the answer blindly or not. You have to analyze it and it is in your discretion to amend the answer or not. If you succeed here to know the true gate leading to heaven, you have been lucky to have the second enjoyment. If you are confused, don’t worry.  You may go to my former Blog “A True Judgment” dated 10th June, 2007 (Annexure – II). There you will find what to do.

Part – III

The puzzle and its solution are before you. Now, an interesting brain exercise you can enjoy. This is your 3rd enjoyment. You have to justify the correctness of the procedure and finding of the true gate leading to Heaven. While going through this job, you will have to keep in your mind the qualities of the gate-keepers. While examining the same, you will have to make different suppositions, etc. etc. . Your friends will not believe in the solution of the puzzle until you prove it to be correct.

It’s over, my good Readers.
