Nasrudin steals the fruit
- A friend was laughing about the Ramana and Papaji parrots, and how
they looked so foolish to her as they mimiced the style and content
of the real masters. She then used this tale to illustrate her point.
Nasrudin was out in his neighbor's field one dark night. He was
creeping around collecting melons and putting them in a bag. The
neighbor came out with a lantern and saw Nasrudin. Of course he
accused the Mullah of stealing his melons, but Nasrudin solemnly
answered, "Oh no. I'm just keeping the wind from blowing them away."
