CAVALRY MEN WILL COME!


Once in the middle of a forest lived a community consisting of men and women who knew not much beyond their chores and hunger. Their objective was to keep the wolf away from the door and silence their women into abject servility and motherhood annually!

The community had raised a lot of domesticated wild asses to ferry their firewood, take their clothes to the river and travel on their backs for small time hunting. So the village chief, who was bored of all these humdrum activities decided one day to have entertainment and suggested to the other villagers that they should promote some sporting activity to amuse and instil a sense of competitiveness in them.

After much haggling they decided to have a race which would combine the skill of men and the strength of the animals. It was decided that they would conduct yearly a race around the village with men on the backs of their animals! Some chose their bulls, some the domesticated donkeys and some a few domesticated wild horses. But before the start of the race the village headman and his cohorts consisting of the village barber, the village launderer and a wood-cutter who formed the grand jury wanted to give away prizes for the animals based on their usefulness!

The bulls, oxen, asses and horses were all lined up to determine prizes for their looks and grooming. The grand jury inspected the bulls and the horses and said these are not very obedient and they lack ENDURANCE to stay in the same spot for hours together and wait on their masters, even though they are muscular and powerful. So the asses and the oxen were shortlisted and the grand jury consisting of the village Headman, barber, wood-cutter and fuller decided that the ASSES were the best for the following reasons:

1. The asses have long ears and are easy to handle

2. The asses have great endurance of waiting in the same spot without moving an inch.

3The asses carry burden unlike the oxen which need a cart to be latched on to its upper neck.

4 The asses do not require maintenance and they could survive on scraps of paper and other rotting left-overs, which helped the ASSES to be determined as animals not competing with the villagers for the same food!

The results were announced and the ASSES let out brays which deafened the whole village for a while. The HORSES which were on the sidelines had a smirk on their faces and said: IF BARBERS, WOODCUTTERS AND FULLERS FORM THE  GRAND JURY, THEY DO NOT DETERMINE BASED ON THE POTENTIAL OF THE ANIMALS, BUT BASED ON THE PRESENT USEFULNESS OF THE TAMED BEASTS.

SOMEDAY, THE CAVALRY MEN WILL COME AND CHOOSE AS THE BEST OF THE BEAST, AS WE CAN PROVIDE QUICK MOBILITY AND NIMBLE TO TURN IN ANY DIRECTION, TAKE COMMANDS BY THE PRESSURE APPLIED ON OUR BODIES BY THE LEGS OF THE SKILLED CAVALRYMEN AND MORE THAN ANYTHING WE CAN JUMP ALL REASONABLE OBSTACLES!

As was wished by the horses, one day a band of CAVALRY MEN, like Gabbar and his gang in SHOLAY, landed up in this remote village. Those who had tamed wild horses took to their backs and fled, but the ox owners, ass owners and bull owners were no match to those horse mounted cavalry men. The village was looted and pillaged, valuables were taken away and their women molested and raped. Even children were not spared. The cavalrymen left without a trace.

The next day the Headman assembled the village general body meeting and after consultation passed a following resolution:

EVEN THOUGH THE COST OF MAINTENANCE OF THE HORSES ARE ON THE HIGHER SIDE, THEY GIVE GREAT PROTECTION. SEE OUR BRETHREN WHO VANISHED WITH THE GOLD AND THEIR WOMEN AND CHILDREN ON THE HORSE BACKS! THE HORSES PROVIDE MOBILITY WITH SPEED AND ARE AMENABLE TO MAN’S SURVIVAL UNLIKE THE OXEN, BULLS AND ASSES WHICH ONLY SHARE OUR BURDEN. THEREFORE THIS ASSEMBLY RESOLVES THAT HENCEFORTH THE HORSES SHALL HAVE PRIMACY OVER THE BEASTS OF BURDEN AND BE CALLED THE FRIEND OF MEN!

Just like these village men, we in our lives tend to depend and value the beasts of burden more than the HORSES which take us faster towards our quarry, in the event of the threat being unmanageable, they take us away faster and make us more combative and able. But all these will be triggered only when cavalrymen surround us and pillage our small cocoons!

In every sphere of life, if we are unprepared THE CAVALRYMEN WILL COME!

OF BULLS & OXEN!


In any organization, there are Bulls and there are Oxen. The functions of the Bulls are very different from those of the Oxen. But before going to the functions of the bulls and oxen, let us look into the structural differences between the two and how the structural differences define the nature of the functions to a very large extent.

BULLS ARE BULLS, BUT OXEN COULD HAVE BEEN BULLS.

Well, that is the first difference. It may look so simple, yet it is not. The farmer knows better. The simple might say that had the oxen not been castrated, they would have also matured into bulls. Yes, physiologically they are right, but the farmer factors in many other considerations which go into the making of the bulls and oxen.

The farmer looks into the pedigree of the bull calf. It has to have been SIRED by a bull that has withstood the onslaught of the cows, and sired calves that are strong if a bull calf and great milch cow if a cow calf and useful for the farmer in his business. So the farmer’s assessment is final, because his business priorities are set by him and they are the rules.

Further in any farm, just like in an Organization, there are more requirements for oxen than bulls.

THE COWS NEED BULLS, BUT THE FARMER NEEDS OXEN.

It may sound strange that the farmer needs oxen more than bulls! But the Truth is strange, as always. If one goes to the veterinary college one could see the STRAWS of eminent bulls. These are cold storaged(!) semen of eminent bulls which have sired the best cows and bulls. Remove the semen and store it for reproduction instead of FEEDING BULLS AND PUTTING UP WITH THEIR TANTRUMS! The cows just wanna get pregnant, they do not insist on the process. They just want to get rid of their ovulation failing which they call out to their farmers incessantly.

WHY AN ORGANIZATION NEEDS MORE OXEN THAN BULLS?

Bulls are a threat to the Management , as the Management itself is DISCHARGING THE PLEASANT FUNCTIONS OF THE BULLS. So who is to do the tasks and chores? Obviously the oxen. The oxen are docile, trained to the yoke, do not run away when whipped, feel guilty when whipped and conform to the expectations of the farmer, and never ever chases COWS.

This behaviour of the OXEN not only suits the priorities of the farmer, but also extracts more income to sustain the lifestyle of the farmer (the management bulls!). But the bull stamps its signature for the future generations!! In an organization, anyone who has the authority to affix his signature and if that signature has authority, then it is the signature of the BULL.

THE ONLY ERROR THAT HAPPENED IN THE LIFE OF AN OX WAS THAT, HE DID NOT RUN AWAY WHEN HE WAS TAKEN FOR CASTRATION!

THE BULL TOLD THE OX, I TOOK TO MY HEELS (HOOVES?) WHEN I FIRST ESPIED A NUTCRACKER & HERE I AM A BULL!!

I CAN BULLSHIT CAN U? THE OX WAS STUNNED.
