Everything Happens for a Reason | An Inspirational Story |
Everything Happens for a Reason : Once there was a king who had immense faith in one of his ministers. He would consult that minister all the times before he took any decision. One day, he cut off his finger while sharpening his sword, went to his minister and showed him the injured finger. To his surprise, the minister consoled the king saying that “There is no need to worry because whatever happens, happens for good”. Having heard that, the king got infuriated and ordered him to be sent behind bars for his casual approach. His instructions were followed by his slaves and one of his most beloved ministers was thrown into the prison due to his unfavorable statement.
After a few day of that incident, the king went on a hunt to a forest from wherein he was kidnapped by the gang the notorious dacoits of that town. The dacoit wanted him to make a sacrifice of his life for the pleasure of Goddess ‘Kali’. When, he was about to be killed, it was found that he was fingerless therefore can’t be killed since it was a tradition of their community that one can’t be killed if any part of one’s body is amputated. In short, the king was saved because of his amputated finger.
He, hastily, went to his minister who had been locked up for many days and apologized to him for being so rude and unjust. He thanked him & ordered him to be released immediately. The king also narrated to him the whole scene (incident) of the forest. But, the minister repeated the same words which he had enunciated earlier “Whatever happens, happens for good”. The king was startled to see the minister’s reaction and his optimism.
The king got furious again and asked him what good was there in his being locked up for many days. The minister smiled and replied that if he had not been locked up, he would have surely gone to that forest with that king where the latter was kidnapped and if he had gone to that forest, the dacoits would have forced him to sacrifice his life instead of Maharaja’s life (as the Maharaja had an amputated finger but he didn’t have). According to him, Maharaja’s decision of sending him behind bars also saved his life. He ends his conversation with the same refrain “Whatever happens, happens for good”.
