Rama Setu: Karunanidhi terrifies Ravana

Sri Rama and Sri Hanuman

October 9, 2007 (Hindustan Times)

Sri Rama surveyed the Ramsetu and said, “Hanuman, how diligently you and your vanara sena built this bridge. How remarkable that it has withstood the ravages of time, considering that a bridge at Hyderabad built by Gammon using the latest technology collapsed the other day even before they could stick posters on its pillars.”

Hanuman said humbly, “Lord, it is because of your grace. We just wrote your name on the rocks and threw them into the sea and they held up. No steel or cement was used. But Lord, why rake it up now?”

Said Rama, “Well, Hanuman, some people down there want to demolish your bridge and construct a canal. The contract involves lots of money They will make money on demolition and more money on construction.”

Hanuman asked, “Why don’t we go down and present our case?”

“No,” said Rama, “Times have changed. Historians will ask us to submit proof of our existence. Do we have a birth certificate, a school-leaving certificate or a driving license? As for address proof, the fact that I was born at Ayodhya is itself under litigation for over half a century. If I go dressed as usual, the ordi- nary people may recognise me but politicians will take me to be a lost Ramlila actor.”

“But I built it! I’ll swear on oath!”

“My dear Anjaniputra, it will not work. They will ask you to produce the layout plan, the project details like financial outlay, how the project cost was met and the completion certificate. They may even want to see your engineering college degree.”

“Lord, I don’t understand. You have given darshan regularly to ‘historical’ figures like Surdas, Thyagaraja, Jayadeva and Tukaram, yet people disbelieve your existence? Should we replay the Ramayana on earth to set the government record straight?”

The Lord smiled. “It won’t happen. Ravana is terrified that Karunanidhi will make a saint of him. And his mama Mareecha, who appeared as the golden deer to tempt Sita, refuses to step on earth for fear of Bollywood hunters. Let it be.”

    It is shameless hindus who must be blamed.If we use the votes intelligently these all sundry politicians will not dare to talk like this.These servants of people do not know lay roads and they talk about channel in the sea.what a scandalous state of affairs.Lord Ram alone can save this country from the scoundrels.
