This story is from a Red Indian settlement. The villagers asked their new Chief if the coming winter was going to be too cold or moderate. The new young Chief was not taught the secrets of forecasting weather. He behaved to be modern but was not much educated. He looked up at the sky, but could not connect himself to the cosmic secrets. However, he boldly replied to his people that the winter was indeed going to be cold and the people began collecting firewood. A few days passed by, the Chief wanted to make sure what actually was going to happen. He went to a telephone booth and called the Weather Forecast Service and asked, "Is the coming winter going to be cold?" "It seems that it is going to be the same as the previous," the meteorologist answered. The young Chief knew that the previous winter was somewhat cold. The Chief went back to his people and told them to collect more wood in order to be prepared. A week later, he called the Weather Forecast Service again. "Is it going to be a very cold winter?" "Yes," the man replied, "It's definitely going to be a very cold winter." The Chief returned to the village and ordered his people to collect every scrap of wood they could find. Two more weeks passed by and it was winter but the weather was still not as cold as expected. The Chief called the Weather Forecast Service once again. "Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?" "Damn sure," the man replied. "How can you be so sure?" the Chief asked. The man replied, "The Red Indians are collecting all scraps of wood."
This story crossed my mind, as I thought of the present status of the fast increasing crimes all over the world. No political leader dares to move out without at least some category of protection, most portion of wealth are on bonds of insurance and every moment of human life is technically unsure. If we ask the State Crimes Statistics Department, what they might say is that the upcoming year is definitely going to be worse. Do not ask them why? They might reply that a man by your name is turning increasingly resistant to the laws of the land.
