The sky is the catwalk where the Moon wanted to dazzle all.  It was Charity Ball for some worthy cause and the Moon was also expected to make her entry. She asked her Mother to design a dress for the gala event. Moon’s Mother  in turn asked the Wind to design. When Mr. Wind came up with a design it didn’t fit  Moon at all. Moon’s mother chided the dress designer for such ill-fitting design. The Moon was in her quarter. The designer took her measurement once again with care and after couple of days came up with another design. How he waxed eloquent over his design! No the design did not fit the Moon at all for the Moon was in full moon phase. Mother of Moon scolded the Wind roundly. Poor designer. He tore his hair and said,’Here I am designing for one who is never the same next day. Why not make your daughter walk the catwalk as she is on the day of the event?’ The Moon followed the advice. No one complained of dress not fitting her.
Moral:The world may hold an unwritten law of change but law written down is to be followed in sense and spirit of the contract.

A fat cat heard there was a tribe which was reported as lost and he heard from his contacts where the tribe might be found. So the fat cat called up his reserves and organized a rescue party.

Fat Cat named Black Cutter also called his right hand man and said,’We are going to the Amazon Basin. There is a lost tribe and we are going there to make them an offer they cannot refuse.’ The number two said, the earth movers are ready in convoy one and in the next we have loggers with their giant cutters, and in the third we have bazookas, sidewinders and grenades. I have a carpet bag full of metal caps, glass beads,frisbees and so on. We first trade hectares of rainforest for glass beads and if they refuse to play game we will smoke them out, right,Boss?’

Fat cat Black cutter was aghast,’You are way off the mark. We will first treat their sickness. We move in as physicians. We call ourselves ‘Native Medicine without frontiers.’

” I didn’t know they were sick, boss?”

“”Sure,’ replied the fat cat smoothly,’Getting lost in these days of global communication is a sickness we shall treat.’

The number two understood,’Oh yes we shall treat them till the rainforest is found into our coffers,- all converted into currency.

Thus they went being certain their civilized approach will be welcomed.

Convoy of trucks finally made to the area the tribe had made their home. The aborginals were more like birds, their speech more tweets than words and their dress in plumes of exotic birds only found in the Amazon. Unknown to the fat cat they had thousands of warriors hidden in the forest with blowpipes. The visitors looked around and they knew they were watched by warriors who didn’t show themselves but the bird calls proved they were watching them intently.

The fat cat told the chief that there was some rumor that they were ailing. The chief said,’Nature took care this far. We shall do well as soon as we see the last of you.’ The fat cat saw warriors hidden in the forest and beat a hasty retreat.
Moral: Relying on highTech is progress that cannot however match the progress of native wisdom to sense the evil intention and take preventive steps.

All art is nature plus. Power to  transcend simple living to live better from resources within and in relation to what others represent is to give nature a new mode to choose from. For me it defines an art of living. Diogenes  of Sinope had learnt it by which he could convince Alexander the Great he was as great as he. Alexander had gone about in conquering without while he went into his life within.
