How The Enemies Became Friends – Wonderful True Story !

handshakeIn our village it was considered shameful to tell that you have piles! Don’t get astonished, this story happened during the early fifties of the last century.

One of the tribal high ranked figures (Mayor) was not in good relations with an upper tribal figure (Magistrate) and tried hard to be in good terms with him but in vain. The Mayor got piles and his sons brought him to a Briton Doctor who was aware of the Mayor’s fears, but the ‘operation’ was inevitable. The Mayor refused. Again and again they tried to convince him, but he was stone hard to yield.

Then the doctor told his sons that this will lead to Prostate Cancer. The Mayor was really worried and agreed to run the operation, but in condition that it should be far away from the whole region. They agreed and took him to a town that was hundreds of miles away. His opponent – the Magistrate, who was eager to follow news seeking a chance for good relations, got the information and visited him at the hospital to wish him good health…

The Mayor was shocked to see him in front of him. He welcomed the magistrate and asked him what he wants in reward not to tell the people at the village about his illness. He said “nothing, but your friendship”.

In our country they say that our government will never be friendly with the citizens unless it gets piles!

    Nowadays in life it is bizzare, all are expecting something from the other. The best is help someone who cannot repay you & you do not expect anything, (Like the Magistrate, who was longing for the Mayor’s friendship), so the best is the poor & the beggars, as you will be helping them, knowingly you will rcve nothing in return.
