You Will Stop Eating Chicken After Reading It !
There was a time when People hardly knew about Chicken as a food. There is an interesting story on how Chickens found themselves into the menu charts of the people across the world.
Let the story begin!
This is the story of a world when it was young, fresh and far from any crime and sin. In a remote village somewhere around the Indian subcontinent there lived a hermit. He was very gentle, generous and kind-hearted.
A few inches away from his house, there was a long-long tree.
It was a home to a lot of birds including Chickens. Interestingly, in those days (in the pre-human civilization era) hens used to fly a lot higher like other birds. They enjoyed full freedom and were not treated as a meal.
The kind-hearted hermit took care of these birds offering them essential foods like grains, nuts, and fruits as a daily routine.
He believed in the simple religion that, “THE BEST WAY TO SERVE GOD IS TO SERVE LIVING BEINGS. THE WORLD BELONGS TO EVERY LIVING CREATURE. THEY ARE THE CREATION OF GODS AND WILL REMAIN SO FOREVER”.
Everyone in the village loved the sage immensely, even though he hardly communicated with the villagers on daily basis.
Every villager knew that as long as the hermit was with them nothing wrong could happen to them. They have everlasting trust and faith in the sage.
The daily routine of the hermit included waking up early in the morning, taking bath, doing some meditation, yoga and then serving the birds.
However, after serving the birds, he delved deeper into ‘devotion’ closing his eyes. He then continued chanting sacred hymns for the next 4-5 hours in total peace.
When Chickens Lost Their Flying Prowess
One day, in the midst of noon, the hermit was in deep meditation. There was pin-drop silence all around. All villagers were silently doing their work.
They knew that when the sage is in deep meditation, it’s very risky to disturb him as he always stood kind to everybody he met.
This precious 4-5 hours were of utmost importance to the hermit. It was only in the evening after sunset he opened his eyes.
However, a little innocent chick did a great blunder. He secretly entered the hermit’s hut and climbed a top of his head. He was totally unaware that what was going to happen to him.
The chick affectionately tried to kiss the hermit’s forehead and started chirping in his sweet voice not knowing the misfortune that was about to unfold soon.
As expected, the sudden disturbance from the chick broke his meditation in the middle. The hermit opened his eyes and these were raged with redness showing his intense fury at the behavior of the chicken.
Holding the chick in his hand, he immediately came out of his room, and put the chick safely onto the ground.
The Misery of Chickens Continue
He called out all villagers saying, “Today, this chick has broken my meditation. It’s an unforgiving act, as for the first time in my life my devotion stands incomplete before the sunset.
“Today, with deep annoyance and anger, I curse to chickens that in the next few hundreds of years, you will become the feast of humans.
And your wings will become useless. You won’t be able to fly as higher as you do now. Also, humans won’t even spare your eggs. These will be consumed too by them”.
The entire village including the tree, birds, and villagers was extremely shocked hearing such strong words from the otherwise calm and composed saint.
Saying these words, the hermit self-immolated himself in no time after chanting few magical words with folded hands. Soon, he got mingled within the ground!
