An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Devil and the Truth

Devil and his friend were walking on a road. Suddenly, Devil’s friend saw a guy walking in front of them bend down and pick something up from the road and keep that safely in his pocket. He was intrigued.

So, he asked the Devil "What did he just pick up from the ground?" Devil coolly remarked "Truth". Devil’s friend, with sympathy for the Devil suggested "Well, it must be a very bad economy for you here, if people can find truth lying on the road everywhere? What use would they have for you then?".

Devil smiled and replied "Wait till he organizes it!"

(adapted from J. Krishnamurthi’s speech "Truth is a Pathless land")
