It is a lovely depiction of peace if and if all the religions come together. the image is poached from a facebook page author- unknown.
There were five houses of religion in a small town:
The Presbyterian Church,
The Baptist Church,
The Methodist Church,
The Catholic Church
and The Jewish Synagogue.
Each church and house of prayer was overrun with pesky squirrels.
The Presbyterians called a meeting to decide what to do about the squirrels.After much prayer and consideration they determined that the squirrels were predestined to be there and they shouldn’t interfere with God’s divine will.
In The BAPTIST CHURCH the squirrels had taken up habitation in the baptistery which is a tank for administering baptism by immersion. The deacons met and decided to put a cover on the baptistery and drown the squirrels in it. The squirrels escaped somehow and there were twice as many the next week.
The Methodist Church got together and decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God’s creation. So, they humanely trapped the Squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town.
Three days later…, the squirrels were back.
The Catholic Church came up with the best and most effective solution.
They baptised the squirrels and registered them as members of the church.
Now they only see them on their weddings, children’s baptism, Christmas and Easter.
The Jewish Synagogue reverted back to old tradition. They caught one squirrel and had a short service with him called circumcision and they haven’t seen a squirrel on the property since.

Today is the 68th death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi the Father of the Nation of India. Mahatma means the great soul (maha – athma). Gandhi was assassinated at the former Birla house in New Delhi on the 30th of January 1948. The non- violence advocate was met by his assassin Nathuram Godse a Hindu nationalist while he was walking with his grand nieces to a prayer in the garden. Gandhi was aged 79 (2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948)
Former Birla house is now known as Gandhi Smirti which serves as a museum for the great soul as he has spent his last days in that house. Last January our family had the opportunity to visit the former Birla house and would like to share some photos on Mahatma Gandhi’s 68th Death anniversary.
Mahatma Gandhi stayed in a room at the back of the Birla’s house. It was a simple room with his only few possessions as described in the images.
Wishing everyone a very bright peaceful new year!
Once again December has arrived for yet another Christmas season. Some do call it as a silly season. Commercially it is a busy time for the supermarkets. A supermarket in Germany has turn the festive season with an innovative musical idea. Please check the short video below.
Music is the language of the world!
During the wedding rehearsal, the Groom-to-be took the Minister to a side and asked:
“I will pay you $100 if you change my wedding vows. When you reach the section where I promise to love honour and obey and ‘forsaking all others, be faithful to her forever’, I want you to omit that bit out.” The Minister duly accepted the 100 quids.
At the wedding ceremony itself, the Minister got to the groom’s vows and said:
“Will you promise to obey her every command and wish, serve her breakfast in bed every weekend, and swear that you will never look at another woman?”
The groom was horrified. “I thought we had a deal” he hissed.
“Yes” Whispered the Minister, pressing the 100 dollar bill into the groom’s hand.
“But the bride gave me a better offer.”
