This is a tale from Panchatantra of "Owls and Crows" and how they fight among themselves.

Tale of The Golden Droppings

On a big tree in the lap of a mountain lived a bird named Sindhuka. His droppings used to turn into gold as soon as they hit the ground. One day, a hunter came to the tree in search of prey and saw Sindhuka’s droppings hit the ground and turn into gold.

The hunter, struck by wonder, thought, “I have been hunting birds and small animals since I was a boy. I am now eighty years old. I have never seen in my life this kind of miracle.”

He decided to get the bird some how and set a noose for him. Not aware of the trap, the bird stayed on the branch merrily singing. Soon, the noose tightened and the hunter caught the bird and pushed him into his cage.

The hunter took it home and considered, “If the king comes to know of this wonder, he will certainly take away the bird from me. Instead, I will go to the king and present the unique bird to him.”

The hunter took the bird the following day to the king and presented it to him with great reverence. The king was extremely happy and told his men to keep the bird in safe custody and feed him with the best bird food. But his minister was reluctant to accept the bird.

He said, “O Rajah, There is no use in trusting the word of this hunter and accepting the bird. Has anyone seen a bird dropping gold? Therefore, I request you to release the bird from the cage.

The king ordered the bird to be set free. As soon as the door of the cage opened, the bird perched himself on a nearby doorway and defecated. The dropping immediately turned into gold. Sindhuka then recited that line about fools, “First, I was a fool. Then the hunter and then the king and his ministers.”


The die is cast. Bihar elections are at cross roads as far as Pariwar politics is concerned. Now, analysts started X-raying Nitish Kumar's decision to go with Lalu and Congress with some suggesting that he could face his bete noir Modi alone and get defeated respectfully, instead of joining Lalu and Congress and giving them fresh lease of life.

The way Mulayam projected him as CM candidate and later withdrew from the alliance pointed to a sinister plan to totally decimate him. The three Yadavs Sharad, Mulayam and Lalu have their own reasons to take sweet revenge on Nitish. Lalu will lose nothing if NDA wins as he will be a force to reckon with, Nitish going back to No.4 position. If JDU+ wins too, there will be no sanctity to the agreement that Nitish will be CM, as RJD is certain to be the no.1 in the alliance and Mulayam's diktat has no sanctity. Which other party will,accept a leader of a party that has no locus standi with voters in the state? Lalu may prefer to join NDA to surrendering to Nitish. But if we consider the macro factors, there is no chance the RJD+ will win more than 30 per cent vote, though we can not predict the seats.

Instead of two, now there are now four or five fronts fighting the polls. NDA, RJD+, Communists+, SP+ and rebels +. Added to this there is MIM that is making efforts to enter fray, though no final word is said, Except NDA, all others target Modi. So, anti Modi voters splitting or remaining neutral will be the natural outcome. At micro level, that our polls analysts do arithmetic, is on caste lines. This underwent a change after Mulayam started attacking Nitish, as communal and a Hitler, (Think of Yadav mindset and Kurmi mindset here) Owsisi targeting Nitish of having ignored Muslims., (think of Muslim mindset) in alliance with BJP and communists and NCP unsparing in their criticism of Nitish equally with Modi. They tilt the scales. And a major hurdle in the form of seat sharing remains. Chance of Lalu joining a Maha Ghat Bandhan with SP,NCP, Communists and Owaisi may be a reality in a week. This combination can score 30% of votes. Lalu loses nothing. He will be a force to reckon with, in either camp. Nitish, with Congress may lose out to be a non-player with less than 12% votes and may land with single digit in Assembly, if this happens. (Most likely) The vote I projected to NDA 47% cannot be disturbed, We can guess the winner. Nitish is going down the drain because of his envy as in Othello, indecision as in Hamlet, arrogance and cunning as in Julius Caesar and ambition and dependence on the witchcraft of the Yadav chieftains as in Macbeth. Manjhi is going to extract his pound of flesh. Wars are won on bravery and not on opportunism. There are more people in the camp of Nitish that misguide him than that guide him. Here, the above story of The Bird With Golden Drops" is apt. He frittered away a chance of keeping the bird with golden droppings, the BJP, in his camp. Rest will be history. The bird is free to enjoy the Sun shine of power and moon shine of service to people of Bihar.

The political school from which Nitish seems to have graduated must have been led by Dr. Amartya Sen under the false guidance of Arvind Kejriwal. Or else, his actions defy all logic! Will he place Bihar in the hands of Lalu and family or respectfully accept defeat contesting alone is in his hands even now? If he depends on C-Voter or A to Z voter polls, he is losing heavily, not only polls, but self-respect.

"Men at some time are masters of their fates." Julius Caesar

Thus proves Nitish! Undue arrogance and misplaced courage encourage men inside our camps to only back-stab us. (I am a live example) . 

"Yond Cassius has a hungry look." says Caesar. Though, overtly daring to say, 

“Cowards die many times before their deaths; 
The valiant never taste of death but once. 
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, 
It seems to me most strange that men should fear; 
Seeing that death, a necessary end, 
Will come when it will come.” 

He later says

“Let me have men about me that are fat... Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look. He thinks too much: such men are dangerous.” 

There is nothing wrong, Mr. Nitish! The brave may have to eat their own words, when danger is lurking in the face of threats by traitors in your camp. Unless, you want to fall like Caesar, who, despite inner fear, goes ahead and gets maimed, it is your fate and you are the master of it!

“There is a tide in the affairs of men 

Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune 
Omitted, all the voyage of their lives
Are bound in shallows and in miseries” 
Please go with the tide that is clearly in favor of Modi. Please lose not your prestige for a seat you can not grab from wily Lalu even if Pariwar wins.

“And since you know you cannot see yourself,

So well as by reflection, I, your glass,
Will modestly discover to yourself,
That of yourself which you yet know not of.” 

As your mirror and your follower in good deeds, this is my sincere advice to you.

“And it is very much lamented,...

That you have no such mirrors as will turn
Your hidden worthiness into your eye

You are worthy but misguided. Lalu is like a man who can forget you after he climbs up the ladder, once he goes up. 

"But 'tis common proof, that lowliness is young ambition's ladder, whereto the climber-upward turns his face; but when he once attains the up most round, he then turns his back, looks in the clouds, scorning the base stairs by which he did ascend.” 

So, Like Caesar, be not be be-fooled by your misplaced courage. 

Neither do you fall like Macbeth, who was misguided by the instruments of darkness. His ambition to be the King and the minor opportunities that come his way lead him to his fall. Was it not Mulayam who propped you up? Is it not the same Mulayam that is saying he is "Hitler", "Communal" et al.?Know yourself Mr. Nitish! Do not fall into a trap laid by the three witches and Lady Macbeth! They have sinister agenda! For them 

"Fair is foul, foul is fair, (they) hover through fog and filthy air!" 

They live this dictum

“Double, double, toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble!” 


“Look like the innocent flower,
But be the serpent under it.” 


“False face must hide what the false heart doth know.” e la Arvind Kejriwal.

And, you Nitish, note that

What's done cannot be undone.” So, Mr. Nitish! Before you do it, think twice.

Ambition to maim a good King who did all to help you in crisis

It provokes the desire, but it takes away the performance”  Your performance has gone for a toss! Pliant Media may not accept but independent analysts are shouting.

Mr. Nitish! Do not fall down from grace like Macbeth, the great warrior, led by ambition. His final journey begins with the sickness of Lady Macbeth. Read this

Macbeth: Cure her of that! Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased, pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow, raze out the written troubles of the brain, and with some sweet oblivious antidote cleanse the stuffed bosom of that perilous stuff which weighs upon her heart.

Doctor: Therein the patient must minister to himself.” 

Bad memories hurt a human from the past misdeeds.

“I have no spur

To prick the sides of my intent, but only
Vaulting ambition, which over-leaps itself
And falls on the other.” 

Ultimately, the man loses sleep. If he sleeps he does have bad dreams.

“Methought I heard a voice cry, Sleep no more!

Macbeth does murder sleep, - the innocent sleep;
Sleep that knits up the ravell'd sleave of care, 
The death of each day's life, sore labour's bath,
Balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course, 
Chief nourisher in life's feast.” 

“Still it cried ‘Sleep no more!’ to all the house: ‘Glamis hath murder’d sleep, and therefore Cawdor shall sleep no more,—Macbeth shall sleep no more!” 

These Mulayams, these Lalus, the Sonias, the Rahuls, the Media and the paid psephologists are but like the instruments of darkness.

“But tis strange: And oftentimes, to win us to our harm, the Instruments of Darkness tell us truths, win us with honest trifles, to betray's in deepest consequence.” 

So, if you hear them and indulge in the unnatural deed of trying to maim nation's growth for your selfish ambition one day it will dawn on you. Not only Bihar, but the entire nation curses you as you are aiming to maim the nation's onward march. Like VP Singh, nation never forgives. Like Indira nation never mourns you! Posterity will curse you! See reason and break the Bandhan with the convicts and the corrupt. You are a brave warrior like Caesar and Macbeth but driven by an unknown malady in each! Please realize and get out of the Bandhan ASAP.

“Unnatural deeds do breed unnatural troubles.”

I am all pervasive. I am without any attributes,     and without any form. I have neither attachment to the world,     nor to liberation (mukti). I have no wishes for anything     because I am everything,     everywhere,     every time,    always in equilibrium. I am indeed,     That eternal knowing and bliss, Shiva,    love and pure consciousness.

मनो बुद्ध्यहंकारचित्तानि नाहम् न च श्रोत्र जिह्वे न च घ्राण नेत्रेन च व्योम भूमिर् न तेजॊ न वायु: चिदानन्द रूप: शिवोऽहम् शिवॊऽहम् ॥

  I am not mind, nor intellect, nor ego, nor the reflections of inner self. I am not the five senses. I am beyond that. I am not the ether, nor the earth, nor the fire, nor the wind (i.e. the five elements). I am indeed, That eternal knowing and bliss, Shiva, love and pure consciousness.

Beat the six internal enemies Desire, Anger, Miserliness, Attachment, Arrogance And Jealousy!

But You are a Politician! Hope Lord Shiva gives you Buddhi!
