The issue of The Setu bridge-The Divine Angle!


 “The issue of The Setu bridge-The Divine Angle!”


** Musings Of Lord Rama On The Issue Of The SetuBridge…*
*The Lord surveyed the Ram Setu and said “Hanuman, how diligently and
strenuously you and your vanara sena built this bridge several centuries
back. It is remarkable that it has withstood the ravages of the climatic
and geographical changes over centuries. It is indeed an amazing feat
especially considering the fact that a bridge at Hyderabad built by Gammon
using latest technology collapsed the other day even before they could
stick the posters on its pillars.”*
*Hanuman with all humility replied “Jai Sri Ram, it is all because of your
grace. We just scribbled your name on the bricks and threw them in the sea
and they held. No steel from TISCO or cement from Ambuja or ACC was ever
used. But Lord, why rake up the old issue now?”*
*Ram spoke “Well, Hanuman some people down there want to demolish the
bridge and construct a canal. The contract involves lot of money and lot of
money will be made. They will make money on demolition and make more money
on construction. “*
*Hanuman humbly bowed down and said “Why not we go down and present our
*Ram said “Times have changed since we were down there. They will ask us to
submit proof of age and we don’t have either a birth certificate or school
leaving certificate. We traveled mainly on foot and sometimes in bullock
carts and so we don’t have a driving license either. As far as the proof of
address is concerned, the fact that I was born at Ayodhya is itself under
litigation for over half a century. If I go in a traditional attire with
bow and arrow, the ordinary folks may recognize me but Sibal may take me
to be some tribal and, at the most, offer a seat at IIT under the reserved
category for learning how to construct a bridge. Also, a God cannot walk
in, dressed in a three-piece suit and announce his arrival. It would make
even the devotees suspicious. So it is a dilemma so to say.”*
*”I can vouch for you by saying that I personally built the bridge.”*
*”My dear, Anjani putra, it will not work. They will ask you to produce the
Layout plan, The Project details, Approved Plans, Municipal Building
Permit,Excavation Permit, the contractor who built it including financial
outlay and how the project cost was met and the completion certificate. And
who inaugurated it? Nothing is accepted by these people without documentary
evidence in India . You may cough but unless a doctor certifies it, you
have no cough. A pensioner may present himself personally but the
authorities do not take it as proof. He has to produce a life-certificate
to prove that he is alive. It is that complicated.”**
*”Lord, I can’t understand these historians. Over the years you have given
darshan once every hundred years to saints like Surdas, Tulsidas, Saint
Thyagaraja, Jayadeva, Bhadrachala Ramdas and even Sant Tukaram and still
they disbelieve your existence and say Ramayana is a myth. The only
option,I see, is to re-enact Ramayana on earth and set the government
records straight once for all.”*
*The Lord smiled. “It isn’t that easy today. Ravan is apprehensive that he
may look like a saint in front of today’s politicians. I also spoke to his
mama Mareecha, who appeared as a golden deer to tempt Sita maiyya when I
was in the forest and he said that he won’t take a chance of stepping on
earth as long as Salman Khan is around.”*
