3-Sheikh Chillee's Daydreaming-2
Sheikh Chillee never cared for the laws of nature. he used to build castles in air and established great businesses, empires, became a prince, married that princess etc etc. and when all that vanished, he used to find people around him laughing at him.
Once he needed some logs of wood, so he went to the forest with an axe and some of his friends. he climbed on a tree, sat on a bough and started cutting the wood from that tree. As he was cutting the wood, he thought - "He would cut the wood, and start selling in the market. Gradually he will work hard to cut the wood and sell them for more money. As the money will start coming, he will employ some people to help him cutting more wood and thus earn more money. Then he will start his furniture business. Thinking thus he started cutting the wood more rigorously
One day he will be very rich, so rich that the King will be ready to marry his daughter to him. Sheikh Chillee was very happy to imagine this marriage. He was cutting the wood from the tree and was imagining his marriage to the Princess. The Princess was looking very beautiful, so he wanted to embrace her. As he extended his arms towards her to embrace her, he found that he fell from the bough. The bough he was sitting on was broken. His all dreams shattered and he broke his leg. His friends had to bring him home on their shoulders.
In this daydreaming, Sheikh Chillee was cutting the same bough on which he was sitting....
