Lord Krishna was in a quandary.He had urgent calls from two sets of people needing His help.But He decided to answer one of the prayers though He could have done many.Who is to question God’s will?
There was the mother weeping outside the surgery room praying for her son’s life.A virtuous and pious boy, he deserved to live long.
There was the urgent summons again from thousands of men to save the life of their notoriously bad neta(leader).They were all atheists questioning His existence and taunting Him on every occasion.But they prayed now when doctors had given up to save their neta’who was murderously attacked.
The Lord was in a fix.Should he listen to the wail of the good mother or the prayers of horde of non- believers.He was sad for a while when He looked at the woman but smiled when He saw the miserable crowd..
Soon the good mom let out a scream when her son was declared dead.The crowd around the neta burst crackers in jubilation when he was said to be out of danger in what was considered a miracle.
Why is God so partial, I wondered.My little mind could only fathom out this reason.Possibly He had taken the virtuous young man to His heaven ridding him of birth and death cycle while by saving neta’s life He would have converted the thousands into believers and let the wicked neta stew more in his world of evil.
