Old slippers can bite

Naran “New slipper will bite” – says a Tamil saying. However, a lady who can speak only Telugu told me otherwise. Girija went to a local temple, leaving her old slippers outside the temple premises, when she stood  before the deity, praying, a thought appeared in her mind whether her slippers would be safe; another thought flashed saying, “they will be; who will take these old chappals”. Strangely, when she returned from the temple, she found her old slippers missing. So, she had to walk a bit under the hot sun, searching for a shoe shop, where she could buy herself new slippers. Surprisingly, she found her slippers in the entrance of the shop. I just wanted to tell you here, she could talk to inanimate objects. She heard her slippers saying, ‘You left me unsafe, thinking I am too old to be stolen. See what I had done for your callousness. Do you understand my value now?” So, we need to learn to respect inanimate objects also. For example, we throw the container after using all the remedies, without even saying thanks to the container. Don’t do that. Next time, say thanks to the container or for the matter whatever stuff you use and then dispose them.
