The Relatives of Donkey
In this summer vacation let us enjoy some intelligent as well as humorous stories directly imported from Afghanistan.
I dedicate this month for Mulla Nasruddin stories famously known as Mulla Stories.
Mulla Stories indicate the intelligence of Mulla Nasruddin, the name that every Afghan remembers hearing about in childhood.
His identity is being claimed by three countries. Afghanistan, Iran and Turkey.
The Nasruddin stories, known throughout the Middle East, constitute one of the strangest achievements in the history of metaphysics.
Superficially, most of the Nasruddin stories may be used as jokes.
They are told and retold endlessly in the teahouses and caravanserais, in the homes and on the radio waves, of Asia.
There is the joke, the moral – and the little extra which brings the consciousness of the potential mystic a little further on the way to realization.
Let us enjoy some of the interesting stories of Mulla.
