What else? – Nothing, but humor!

Click here to read in Gujarati

One day at commencing of an OPD in an asylum, the only patient brought before the team of doctors was interviewed with the typical question as “When we discharge you after fully cured, what will you do  first?” The patient  replied instantly, “I’ll collect  some  pieces of  stones, throw  them towards all windows  and  doors of your  hospital  made of  glass and  break  them  down.” The question and  its answer were recorded on the case paper and he was admitted as an indoor patient for treatment.

After three months, the same patient was asked the same question and to the satisfaction of doctors he replied, “Sirs, I’ll try to have a job for earning.”

“Very good! What next?”

“I’ll save money and marry a beautiful woman.”

Doctors were excited as they were getting different answers with signs of cure.

“Next?”

“I’ll ask my wife to prepare a cup of coffee for me.”

“Excellent! What then?”

“I’ll ask her to bring for me the pair of pincers and our son’s old trousers.”

Doctors were somewhat confused, even though they continued to ask further, “What next, dear friend?”

“I’ll cut the elastic strip from trousers, tie it with the ends of pincers and make a pellet-bow.”

“Oh! My God, but why?”

“To throw pieces of stones with it to break down the glasses of all the doors and windows of your hospital! What else?”

The Proof (A few liner story)

Click here to read in Gujarati

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.”

“Really?”

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!!!

“Hey! Are you going to watch a movie?”

“No! I am going to watch a movie.”

“Oh! I thought you are going to watch a movie!”

Notes:-

(1) In literature, many wonderful and challenging experiments have been done by the Writers; like “6 – word biography”, “2 – liner story” etcetera.

(2) Here, I have written a funny Play containing only three dialogues with two characters, un-named.

(3) The Play is untitled, meanwhile; but, I invite my Readers to suggest any title in Comment Box.

(4) Any appropriate title will be accepted and put in place of my temporary title
