God’s Rule – Tit for Tat
Rinku lived in a huge house in Ranchi. She had finished 3rd Std final exams. Summer vacations began with long days of games, favourite food, no school and loads of fun.
Bonza was a very adorable puppy living in the neighbourhood street. Everybody loved him except Dr Perry, Rinku’s neighbour.
He never cared for Bonza but showered his love on his pet Creamy. It was a young Pomerian puppy with cream fur.
One day Rinku and her friends were playing dodge ball with Bonza enjoying the game. Dr Perry had an emergency visit to a patient’s house. He was driving very fast. Hi car hit Bonza who was playing around. Bonza was hurt and shrieked in pain. Dr Perry drove ahead without stopping. The entire neighbourhood tended to Bonza with love, care and attention.
After a week, Dr Perry took Creamy for an evening walk and got busy, talking to a friend. Creamy was strolling carelessly. A truck passed by in full speed injuring Creamy.
The truck driver didn’t stop, continued in full speed. Rinku and her friends offered to help Dr Perry He was sad, unhappy and shocked. He thought to himself, “How could the driver be so unkind?”, even though he was the one who had been cruel to Bonza.
Summer vacations ended and Rinku shared this incident with her school friends.
God follows a simple rule – Tit for Tat. He gives you what you give others.
Rinku decided to keep this in mind forever.
