His Guru advises him not to, but he doesnt listen. The student thinks he can make huge profit in such a place, and so goes to this andher nagri. Well, he has a ball and feasts everyday on cheap dates and grows chubby. The wall falls down on them, killing them. Their mother wants vengeance. She argues that her sons were only following their profession.
She wants the home-owner hanged. The home owner is called, who in turn blames the brick layer. The bricklayer of course blames the cement. The cement mixer is summoned.
Get the drift? It gets increasingly strange now … The cement guy says that may be a mistake happened but he was distracted because he was greeting a passing sadhu. So the judge calls the sadhu, who, being a religious man had nothing to say to defend himself.
The sadhu was sentenced to death. Now the noose is made as per the nationally prescribed norms. The chubby student who was hanging around the courtroom watching this drama gets hauled and the noose fits his neck. His hanging is fixed for the next noon. Desperately he sends an SOS to his Guru who reaches there just in time to stop the hanging. The Guru creates a ruckus and insists that he must be hanged and not the student. The judge is surprised and curious.
He asks the Guru why he wants to die? The Guru tries to avoid answering. When threatened with dire consequences, he confesses that on this day of the new moon, anyone who is hanged would attain moksha.
The judge insists that by virtue of being the judge, he deserves the moksha and orders his own hanging. The Guru and his disciple flee the land. I got this tweet on my timeline and remembered the old tale ….. First time in life, necessities, comfort and luxuries are all sold at the same price per unit..
