The Coconut Fruit

Author:

After setting the stars in motion, after ordering
the galaxies in perfect order — Brahma
sat on a chair (made of clouds), and started playing with
the blue orb;
There was man, and woman, and varieties of birds,
sea~animals, and mammals. Brahma then tore itself
apart into two halves, and a male~Brahma
and a female~Brahma were born.
From the lower tube of the body of the female~Brahma,
a little baby emerged. The baby had only
one leg and three hands. This baby was Satan.

As Satan grew older, it learned that it had great
psychic powers. It could embed images in the minds
of the both males and females, and make them
have things against their will.
One night, when Satan was sleeping, Adam took a knife
and tried to murder Satan by cutting his throat.
But he restrained himself.

Satan was named "Mikira", by his parents.
Mikira started writing poems and songs
at a very early age. It could make people emotional
by its songs and poems. But deep in his heart,
Mikira wanted to kiss and eat the insides
of the coconut fruit — Mikira wanted money and wealth,
by which one can buy a coconut fruit.
Mikira went to China, and became the royal
poet of the Emperor Taizu of Song. Mikira played
flute music that would please the ears
of the king.
Emperor Taizu sent him to Tibet
to learn the secrets of the Tibetan spirituality.
He journeyed to Tibet, and practiced deep meditation
with Tibetan monks; he had deep psychic reservoir,
as already told: but Mikira showed the monks
the scenes of Las Vegas (on a television~like screen),
and brought future into the past. He disturbed the
quietness of the monks to its very core.
One monk, named "Mihira", assaulted
Mikira while he was bathing in a pond.
Mikira opened his mouth, and black spiders
came out from there — Mihira fled the scene.

18 years passed in this way.
Mikira went to Japan.
Mikira took the name "Buddha".
The Japanese people worshiped him like a god.

I see.

Take the vaccine as soon as possible, then.

Well, no, not a good time. We are expecting to have 4th wave of corona virus here. The borders are closed. Spain has suffered greatly from Covid-19, with a high number of cases and deaths. After one of Europe's strictest lockdowns in spring 2020, it reopened to visitors over the summer, but has since entered a state of emergency that is due to run until May 2021.

Will check all these places.

This is a very good time for traveling. The colors of nature must be mind-blowing there.

Thanks a lot, Ramadan Mubarak to you as well

Yes Spain is famous for it’s arts, museums, beaches, paella, football and many other things. Very good place for tourists. I am in Barcelona. Check out rambla raval, placa de Catalunya, placa Espanya, las Ramblas, Gothic park, La Sagrada familia, Montjuïc park, These are some of the famous places here.

Blessings

Spain is a very interesting place. Their architecture is fabulous.

The electricity went off here a while ago. So there was a delay from my side to respond to your comment. I hope it's okay now. :~)

I checked about "Sehari". Wikipedia names it as "Sahrī or Sehri (Persian: سحری, Urdu: سحری), also called Sahūr or Suhoor". Fasting indeed clears the mind.

Ramadan Mubarak. Wishing you a very blessed Ramadan.

Misbah Sheikh from The World of Poets on April 15, 2021:

India is 3 hours and 30 minutes ahead of Spain

Misbah Sheikh from The World of Poets on April 15, 2021:

No Actually , I woke up for having my Sehari. I am fasting. It’s Ramadan.

So I just read your piece at that time. I was amazed to see something from you at that time—-haha :)

Thank you, Brenda. :~)

Thank you, Misbah.

Yes, I wrote this piece around 12:30 p.m. of the night. I just googled about the difference of our local times, and the difference is only 30 minutes! Looks like you read this piece on 4 a.m. of the morning. You seem to be an early riser. That's good. :~D

Thank you again for your wonderful comment. Blessings and peace to you too.

Thank you, Ravi ji.

Ravi Rajan from Mumbai on April 15, 2021:

What a great story Tanmoy.This is not only enthralling but very different from what I have read so far in HP. Amazing creativity - Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, John.

I am an adherent of Hegel. I try not to be boring.

I am very interested in the life, habits, and daily activities of the transgender people (i.e., eunuchs). The transgender people exhibit amazing psychic insights. I tried to delve into their psyche and bring out something useful for normal people.
