Whose fault was it?


Toastmaster, fellow member and guests,

We would be punished, if we act against the Law. What would be the punishment if we act against the moral? As per Hindu religion, All Good and bad deeds are recorded and will be punished or awarded after death. There is a book named” Karuda Puran” which list the punishment for each moral crime.

Whether it is true or false, whether there is going to happen anything after death, these were created for good to make people afraid to not commit any mistakes morally.

I was very lucky grown up in Joint family and stayed with my grand parents.. My grand mother used to tell stories daily. In my school days, i always fight with my brother and often put all blame on him and complain about him to my parents and grand parents. One day I complained to my grandparent that my brother broke my pencil box. Thought I was not sure how it was broken.. My Grandma asked… How do you know about that? I said I guessed… that time my grandma told the story…

Once upon a time there lived a rich man who was very generous .He was so generous and he was donating all his wealth to poor people. People all over the world travel to him to get help. Seeing his popularity his  neighbor was very jealous about him.

One day 4 poor priest came to the person home from very distance. The rich man happily donated whatever things he can. Those priests were very very happy…  In those days, priest doesn’t eat food from other and they started preparing food. They were so tired and slept after preparing food. In that time a poisonous snake was passed. A hungry eagle saw the snake.. Immediately he flew very fast and cached the snake and flew again.. The poor Snake was trying to escape but could it.. Eagle was flying on top the ground where priest were sleeping. Suddenly, the poison from snake came and felt to the ground and directly into the food. The entire priest got up and without knowing this fact the priest eating food happily and after some time they all died. Believe me I literally cried after hearing this story. Let us stop the story now and give some brief introduction.

As per Hindu tradition.. We have thousands of Gods and Godess.. YAMA is the God of death. He is in charge of get back the man to hell or heave after death.It is believed that he has the record of all our good and bad things and person would be punished after death. His assistance name is ChitraGupth.  He is the incharge or recording all the Good and bad. Even we celebrate Chitra Gutha birthday to please him so that he write good about us. Citraguth was analyzing the killing of priest. Killing of priest is big sin and he is looking whose fault was that..  Do you know whose fault was that? Was it rich man fault, Snake fault or eagle fault?  He was so confused and he couldn’t come up with any decision and he asked his master YAMA.. Yama also didn’t’ know the answer. It seems they can’t close the case saying ‘no evidence’.. They have to find who is responsible of that sin.  Then Yama, the God of death said, ok we will decide later. Next day, another 3 poor people going to see rich man. aand they stoped and asked rich person address in his neighbour home. .The lady said showed the address after they passed she laughted amd  whispering to her husband

He killed 4 people yesterday and goingto kill another 2 today and they laughed. By seeing this God YAMA called his assistance ChitraGutha.. Chitraguth, Put all  the blance/sin on that lady account who incorrectly blame good person without knowing what was happened..

She deserved that punishment… After her death she was punished for this sin. That was the story and my grandma said don’t just guess and put blame anyone without knowing the fact. Believe me ,  I really got afraid after this story.. Everything when I was trying point someone, this story came to my mind

This tale provides a valuable lession – “Don’t blame anyone without knowing the fact”. Though these kind of fault is not punishable here but will be punished after death.
