Amar Chitra Katha : Nasruddin Hodja Rides Again !

Luis Fernandes



Naseeruddin Hoodja lived centuries ago but the stories told about him have a timeless appeal. Some of them make you laugh, others make you think and a few leave you totally perplexed, you don't know whether Naseeruddin is being profoundly wise or profoundly foolish. Here is one such story: One day people saw him riding a donkey but seated with his back to the donkey's head, some boys were following him.

When he was asked why he was riding the donkey backwards, he replied: "I'm leading these boys to school and they're a mischievous lot! This way I can keep an eye on them on the way!" "Then why not ask them to walk in front of you?" asked a man. "Don't be absurd!", scolded Naseeruddin, "I'm their leader. How can a leader follow his followers?" The stories in this book are taken from Tinkle archives and have all appeared in Tinkle magazine at some time or the other.
