God Ain't Fair, Sometimes!

I hope am not the only one here who feels that sometimes God ain't fair! It’s not that I have lost faith in God and am not questioning how he is taking care of business, I have full faith in him and I can feel that something good (a 10 digit bank balance) is in store for me. But Dear God, there are times when I feel that you could have been more generous and more quick in answering my prayers. My days in the corporate world is not that easy especially when I mess up something at work, like forgetting to do some really important work that was assigned to me and when asked to sent them the work. That is when I need you to be quick in answering my prayers. You know on such days I always pray ‘oh God... Please make my team Leader and my manager have some kind of short term memory problem until am through with the work'. I would really appreciate if you answer my prayers instantly instead of six months after my prayers. Because I have been observing how you answer my prayers and I have noticed that the only time they face short term Memory Problems is during the annual salary hike time, the time of the year when they forget how much I deserve a good salary hike! Coming to the generous part, well I won’t mind a ten digit bank balance and if that’s too much to ask I won’t mind even if I was Bill Gates Son.

As said before, Am not questioning how God is taking care of business but I won’t mind if God comes to me and ask ‘Boy, why all the ranting. Tell me What Do you want?’ As any normal human being, am greedy but fortunately not to the point where I have to hurt someone for my own gain. But I too have my own needs like a small 40 bedroom mansion that sits on some 100 acres, with a view of the crystal clear water of the Caribbean ocean from every room. For transportation, a small super sonic airplane, two Rolls-Royce and some Ferrari car but if that’s too much, just a pair of detachable wings would do. Wings! That would be perfect, 100% pollution free and I can fly to my girl every night after work. As any human being, I too get thirsty and for that a small brewery and a winery on the backyard would be just perfect. Finally for my daily bread and butter, a 10 digit bank account in ten different banks sounds pretty reasonable.

For a better world, I would ask God to erase the term Vegetarianism, Vegetarianism what the hell. Did our forefathers fought all the way to the top of the food chain, so we can be vegetarian? I don’t think that was their plan! A home for everyone, weekly grocery rain, for those who can’t go out I would ask God to create a Secret Bureau of hot Angels who will deliver it right in their kitchen. Just like Chinatown in every Major Cities across the world, a ‘Little Amsterdam’ in every city with everything Amsterdam has to offer! Honest politicians. Hardworking, understanding and sensible management in every corporate establishments. Religious leaders who care about the spiritual life of the people. Making women less complicated to understand. Last but not the less, a million dollar for all my readers.

I known, my demands are very basic, am sure God would be more than happy to grant these wishes. I have this feeling that since my requests are so humble he might even ask me ‘‘Boy you want to have some fun with the history’. If that happens I’ll surely have fun re-arranging and altering some parts of History like the Gaul’s defeating the mighty Roman Empire and taking over Rome. Swapping the place of the African slaves and the European Slave Traders! Deleting some specific individuals and the events associated with them such as deleting the dude who invented the Atom bomb, Hitler and Bollywood (oh god, I just can’t stand Bollywood).

Wow! I have just realized that I have too much time in hand. I seriously need to use this time to do something more productive. On a serious note, if God appears in front of me right now and grant me one wish, I won’t ask for a 10 digit bank balance or super powers, I’ll ask him to deleted just one sense from all mankind, GREED!

P.s: Listening to 4 Non Blondes 'Spaceman'.... Love this song. I too want to Pretend that I'm a spaceman, in Another Place and time.
