A Man was travelling in a boat with his two monkeys.
There was also a Philosopher with other passengers in that boat.
The two monkeys had never travelled in a boat before, so, they were not feeling comfortable.
They were jumping up and down, not letting anyone sit in peace.
The boatman was troubled by this and was concerned that the boat would sink due to the panic of the passengers.
If the monkeys don’t calm down it will drown the boat.
The man was upset about the situation, but could not find any way to calm the Two Monkeys.
The philosopher watched all this and decided to help.
He said: ” If you allow, I can make these monkeys as quiet as house cats.”
The Man immediately agreed.
The Philosopher, with the help of two passengers, picked up the monkeys and threw it into the river.
The monkeys started to swim desperately to stay afloat.
They were now dying and struggled for life.
After some time, the philosopher dragged the Monkeys back into the boat.
The monkeys were quiet and sat in a corner.
The man and all passengers were surprised at the changed behaviour of the Monkeys.
The man asked the philosopher: “At first they were jumping up and down. Now they are sitting like pet cats. Why?”
Philosopher said: “No one realises the misfortune of others without tasting the trouble. When I threw these monkeys into the water, they understood the power of the water and the usefulness of the boat. They realised that their jumping around may upturn the boat and drown them too”..
Monkeys that are jumping up and down in India just because they have freedom should be thrown in Nigeria, North Korea, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Iraq or Pakistan or even China for 6 months, then on coming to India, they will automatically become calm and will lie in a corner..
Dedicated to all those monkeys, abusing India every other day just because they hate the govt..
