Isn't it strange?
how a 20 rupee note seems like such a large amount
when you donate it to temple, 
but such a small amount
when you go shopping?

Isn't it strange?
how 2 hours seem so long
when you're at

and how short they seem
when you're watching a good movie?

Isn't it strange that you can't
find a word to say when
you're praying,
but you have no trouble
thinking what to talk about
with a friend?

Isn't it strange?
how difficult and boring
it is to read one chapter
of the Bhagwad Gita,

but how easy it is to 
read 100 pages of a popular novel ?

Isn't it strange?
how everyone wants front-row-tickets
to concerts or games, 

but they do whatever
is possible to sit at the last
row in Jagran?

Isn't it strange?
how we need to know
about an event for Temple
2-3 weeks before the day
so we caninclude it in our agenda,
but we can adjust it for other events
in the last minute?

Isn't it strange?
how difficult it is to 
learn a fact about God
to share it with others, 
but how easy it is 
to learn, understand,
extend and repeat gossip?

Isn't it strange?
how we believe everything
that magazines and newspapers say,

but we question the words
in the Bhagwad Gita?

Isn't it strange?
how everyone
wants a place in heaven,

but they don't want
to believe, do, or say anything
to get there?

Isn't it strange how we send
jokes in e-mails
and they are forwarded
right away,
but when we are going to send
messages about God, we think
about it twice before we share
it with others?
