The Proof (A few liner story)

I was on terrace of my house to have Sun-bath in winter days. An unknown fellow stood before me with the smiling but queer face. Before I ask him anything, he put a question before me with no any context but straight way.

“Do you believe in God?”

“No, not at all.”

“You may be a Rationalist! Am I right?

“Yes, exactly. But, what of that!”

He did not pay any attention to my words and said, “Will you please do me a favor? Is there any perfect slogan in your ‘Rationalism’ representing your ideology?

“Of course, it is as “God is nowhere.” I said.

“Would you mind if I separate your ‘nowhere’ in two words as ‘now here?”

“But why? I can’t understand what you mean to say!”

“I may prove for you that God is here.” said he with firmness.

“I don’t need any proofs for what I believe in.”

“It’s okay! Will you please answer my last question?”

“Ask. But who you …?

“Do you believe in ghosts?” he cut and ignored my question.

“No, not the least! I am a scientist also. Science finds truth on basis of proofs by experiments, you know?”

“I am sorry for not giving you any proofs about God as it is a very lengthy process to make you understand very well. But, I can show you the experiment for the existence of ghosts instantly.”


But, what I did see!

The stranger vanished before my eyes as if he melted into the air and I took bath with my perspiration!!!
