THE MAGNETISM OF LOVE


DISGUISED as a common traveller, Raja Prajapal was riding a horse to a neighbouring town. On the way, a lame man signalled to him to stoop and pleaded, “I am lame, I have come a long way and am very tired. I’ll be very greateful it you allow me to ride behind you as far as the next town.”

Feeling sorry for him, the Raja helped him to mount. On their arrival at the town, he was helping him to dismount when the man raised a hue and cry. “I am lame: this man is trying to make away with my horse!” Soon a sympathising crowd gathered around them and led them to the judge.

The judge ordered the traveller to lead his horse some distance and tether him to a nail in a wall. Next he ordered the impostor to untether him and lead him back Within seconds, he cried out to the traveller, “this horse belongs to you can take it.”

The Raja was amazed at this novel procedure of giving judgment. Revealing his identity, he asked the judge, “but how could you decide so quickly that I was the rightful owner of the horse?”

“Sire, as you led the horse to be tethered, he followed you unhesitatingly, affectionately; but as that impostortried to lead him back the horse shied and started dragging his feet. Wasn’t that a conclusive proof?” Love attracts, fear repels.
