The promise of Agni

There was a poor vegetable vendor. He used to spread his vegetables near a rail track and sell them.

Nearby lived a herdsman with a lot of goats. He was 1.5 times the size of our meek hero. This evil man used to instigate a few of his goats to attack the vegetable vendor’s stall and help themselves.

It happened every day. Poor vendor was so frustrated, he decided to jump under a running train and kill himself.

Just about he was going to jump, Lord Agni (lord of fire – and hence railway) appeared and stopped him. After knowing the reason, He said:

“Say ‘drrrr…up’ aloud and your trouble will reduce.”

The vendor went home.

Next day a few goats attacked. The vendor shouted “drrrr…up!” – lo and behold! All the goats started running out of the stall towards the rail track.

A train came rushing from nowhere and all the goats were killed.

Next day, the herdsman came fuming. Vegetable vendor’s mouth went dry.

“What the **** did you do to my goats?”

“Oh nothing, Sir, all I did was to shout aloud ‘drrrr…up’ …”

Before he could finish the sentence, the herdsman ran out of the stall towards the rail track. A train came rushing from nowhere – and the problem was solved forever!
