Where is God?

The primary question of humanity. Indeed, an ultimate answer is found no where.
Well, this post do not contain any spiritual news or any articles with respect to any religion. I just read a very wonderful story yesterday. The story line had impressed me so very much that I would like to share with you guys.

Here goes the story..

"In suburban part of India, there were two brothers, 6 and 8 years old, greatly mischievous. Anything that goes wrong in the neighbourhood would straight ahead comes to the decision that the brothers have their hands on it. Their parents to their best, tried to keep the boys in a state of order. However, there was no luck to their side. Hearing about a saint nearby, the mother decided to make the saint talk to the boys.

The saint was invited to come to the home on an auspicious day. The saint came and said he wanted to talk to the younger brother first and alone. So the mother sent him to the saint. The saint asked the boy to sit across a huge, impressive desk. For about five minutes, they just sat and stared each other.

Finally, the saint pointed his finger at the boy and asked, "Where is God?" The boy looked under the desk, in the corners of the room, all around, but said nothing. Again, louder, the saint pointed at the boy and asked, "Where is God?" Again the boy looked all around but said nothing. A third time, in a louder, firmer voice, the saint leaned far across the desk and put his forefinger almost to the boy's nose, and asked, "Where is God?"

The boy panicked and ran all the way home. Finding his older brother, he dragged him upstairs to their room and into the closet, where they usually plotted their mischievous plans. He finally said, "We are in BIIIIG trouble." The older boy asked, "What do you mean, BIIIIG trouble?"

His brother replied, "God is missing and they think we did it."

Hope you guys have enjoyed it. :)
