Nasruddin hodja

And then it happened that sad things happened to Hodja. Things that were sad and things that were bad. But Hodja did not understand that. How could he?

Then he met his friend, Bhoja, and Bhoja said – “my dear Hodja, you should cry, because sad and bad things have happened to you.”

That very moment, Hodja started wailing, “Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaa”.

Passersby saw. One came and said, “why do you wail, dear Hodja?”

And Hodja said, “I was told that what happened was sad, and what happened was bad. And was told to be sad. And so I cry.”
