kande da kanda, Amrik Singh Kanda : When God was creating this universe.After creating single pieces of each and every species such as animals,mankind,birds and insects.Then he animated them all and started allocating ages to them.First of all he called mankind and said.
"Take it your span of age fourty years being greedy in nature from beginning mankind startled and said only fourty years.This is not done,Almighty please extend it by few more years."
"Its my Quota,I can’t amend it .I am help less But if any creature deliberatly gives you the surplus of its age,then I won’t intervene.you go and sit aside."Almighty said.
Now god had started allocating ages to animals and birds .It was donkey’s turn now God said.
"Your age is fourty years."
"God please forgive me.Its of no use for me I am not going to be an officer there.I would just die by carring weight.I kindly request you to slash my age ."donkey said.
"Its my Quota,I can’t help you ? If you want to surrender your Surplus years,Give it two mankind.In this way man got twenty more years under its escape.But greedy mankind kept waiting there.it was dog’s turn now .
"Your span is fourty years."
"But dog was surprised
"Oh almighty this chunky pack of fourty is too much for me.I can’t yelp for fourty years.Because i would die unneccessarliy of it.So kindly help me."dog said
"I can’t help you only mankind do a favour."God replied.
"Dog went to mankind and gave him twenty years out of his quota.But mankind is not yet satisfied.He is still greedy.So he kept waiting and waiting.Now God had almost allocated the ages. At last it was turn of Owl. God gave him fourty years.But Owl was not happy with this generosity.The Owl groused about it.
"My lord,the nature of my life is different from others. I can’t see in day light instead of it Iam able to see at night.So this age of fourty year is too much for me."owl said.
"If you are not satisfied,then you can give your surplus years to man."God said.
So like other species owl also gave twenty years of it age to man and flew away.
But man was still expecting few more years.
"Why dn’t you go away..? No one would come to you,because I have finished my quota.But remember one thing you have taken ages of animal and birds,You will have to suffer a lot.It would be expensive for you."God said.
No doubt the actual age of mankind is fourty years only.During which mankind enjoy. and after that he works like a donkey for his family. All the time he is busy in doing nick-nacks.He keeps carring weight of his family.
At sixty years he turns old.Now his body is not able to work.And now he does advise his kids but in hesitated manner.His childern now use to say don’t bark like a dog when he gets tire of barking no body pays attention to him. After eighty year he sticks to the colt for the rest of his life.Now his knees and ankels rattle.He observes his daughter-In-laws and sons while Quarreling among selves.But now he can not speak and rise up to disengage them. If anything wrong is happning he can’ot check it.Now he spends sleepness nights.He keeps tossing in the bed for whole night.Now no one is there to stand by him.He suffering each and everyminitue.Now he stares like an owl.But what a pity one day even this gazing would get close.
