Lord Krishna, assured that in every Mega Age (Yug) He would take the avatar Incarnation) on Earth to annihilate the evil, punish the guilty, to protect the righteous and establish Dharma. In other words, in every age, He would set right the disorder and establish order. This age is known as ‘Kalyug’ (dark age). In 21st Century, the disorder is at its peak. It is high time the Lord take Kalki avatar as assured by Him and restore order. (‘Kalki’ avatar is the tenth and the last avatar when God would visit on a horse with a sword on hand). Accordingly God comes to the Earth for doing His duty. But what is the result? This story depicts in a humorous way the problems God Himself will face should he come to Earth. This story is fully a political satire and not to hurt the religious sentiments of people belonging to any religion whatsoever.
The greatest scandal of the twentieth century! A sum of whopping billions of rupees was swindled in a poor country on Earth. Hence, one may guess the toil of millions of poor labourers and tax payers behind that wealth. The loot extended from mining beneath the Earth, to scandals in purchase of aircraft and weapons used on the surface of Earth. There are several stories depicting life in Three Worlds, one on the surface, one beneath the Earth and the other on the sky. It seems our corrupt people realised all the three worlds by extending their corrupt practices in all the three.
The author of this mega scandal was Ramsingh, one of the most powerful politician of the country. Though he was never in election game nor held any post, each elected Government would have his influence on it because the candidates depended on the billions he spent for their winning the elections. The same may be told about industries, trade and commerce and of course film production. Only the actors and actresses who have his recognition could be the successful performers in filmdom.
Normally, before retiring to bed he used to offer prayers to the Almighty. That day also, he was offering his prayers. “Oh God! I have to thank you for enabling me to earn this much wealth. Nobody on Earth can surpass my wealth’.
He could have stopped with this observation. But his next statement was very much provocative. “Oh God! Now I am richer than you. Even you cannot surpass me”.
That moment God decided to interfere. “Why can’t I?” He asked.
Ramsingh was taken aback. He took the revolver kept under the pillow and asked “Who is speaking? Come to the front, otherwise I will shoot you”.
“No, No don’t shoot me” God pretended as if he was afraid.
“Then come before me. I want to see you”
Next moment God, whom he was praying daily, appeared before him.
“Pooh! Are you God? Our film heroes are better looking than you” Ramsingh remarked.
“Is it, Are your film heroes more handsome than me?” God asked.
“Yes, yesterday I saw a film in which Lord Krishna was so handsome that people worshipped him in the hall itself. They won’t recognise you as God.”
For a moment, God had some calculations mentally, then he told, “But he is mortal and will die at any time, whereas I am immortal.”
“So what? Let him live for only thirty years. He has enjoyed everything on Earth. Do you know that he has dozen wives, all so beautiful? Your Heavenly ladies are no comparison to those ladies,” Ramsingh replied.
“Okay, if you think that having beautiful girls is the Bliss, I won’t argue.”
“It is alright, tell me the purpose of your visit”
“I have come here to annihilate you,” God said seriously.
“What? Are you kidding me?” Ramsingh took it as a joke and laughed.
“Yes, so far I took nine avatars and established order. This is my tenth and last. This time, I wish to annihilate one by one and I have chosen you as the first to be eliminated”.
“Why me? There are so many giants worse than me.” He quipped.
“Financially speaking, there are several giants worse than you. But you have committed other offense like murders, rape in abundance. The worst of them was you poisoned your friend to usurp power and after his death you placed your own henchmen in various posts and you have you have deceived billions of people. Be ready to die”. The avatar raised hands to get his weapon (the revolving wheel on his hand.)
For a moment Ramsingh was taken aback. But he was able to recover within seconds and asked, “Oh God, please be patient. Please allow me to ask some questions”
“Okay, you proceed”
“My most respectful God Narayana, had you wanted to punish me you could have done it without showing your presence. But you are giving your Darshan to me which is available only for one in a billion. That shows that I have done some good deeds also. Isn’t it?”
“It is not because of the good deeds done by you, but by your forefathers including your parents. They were feeding thousands of poor, they opened several schools for free learning and constructed several free mansions. They dug hundreds of wells for obtaining pure water. The proceeds of their good deeds ended today. From now onwards only effects of your sins will reach your descendants”
“Oh, God! Every day I used to pray you without fail. One more thing, I used to give a share to you at twenty percent of what all I earned in black”
God was astonished. “What?”
“Yes, I am not bluffing. You yourself verify my accounts. If I get rupees ten, I will give you rupees two. Likewise, if I get one hundred million, I shall deposit scrupulously twenty millions into your temple hundi”(collection box)
“Don’t you know that the sanctum in the new temple constructed for you was financed totally by me. I spent nearly a billion rupee for that temple out of the profit I earned through the above transaction which people prefer to call as mega scandal.
God was speechless for a moment.
Ramsingh realised that he was going in the right direction. By this time, he had gathered enough courage to bargain.
“Okay God, let us talk business. Don’t kill me. Allow me to give you a share of half of what all I earn. That is fifty-fifty. I will sincerely put 50% of what all I earn into your temple collection box. Are you happy?”
Before his completing the statement God vanished.
“Oh God, Maha Vishnu, Narayana” he shouted.
“Oh dear, why are you shouting?” his wife who rushed to his bed room shook him to raise from the sleep.
‘Dear, do you know that I was talking with God?”
“Oh it is good, what were you talking with him?” she asked sarcastically.
“Ha, Ha, he wanted to kill me” he was laughing.
“Then what did you do?”
“I offered him fifty percent of my earning, He ran away fearing that he also would become corrupt”
He was having a hearty laugh over the dream he had.
Suddenly there was a great noise.
“Oh what is that?”
The Earth started shaking and the ground below him was divided into two.
Ramsingh, his family, all wealth fell into thousands of fathoms deep.
Next day a telecast from far away country stated:
“Due to a massive earth quake in the poor country, an entire city was plunged into the deep Earth. Thousands of men, women and children were buried. Buildings including huge structures like Temples were buried. Please wait for the complete report”
God has his own way for punishing the sinners.
