Mulla’s Strategy


One day, Mulla Nasruddin saw a crowd gathered around a lake. A Maulvi with a huge turban on his head had fallen into the water and was calling for help. Many people were leaning over and saying, “Give me your hand, Sir! Give me your hand!” But the Maulvi didn’t listen to them; rather, he kept wrestling with the water and shouting for help. Finally, Mulla stepped forward and said to the people, “Let me handle this.” He stretched out his hand towards the Maulvi and shouted at him, “Take my hand!” The Maulvi grabbed Mulla’s hand and was pulled out of the lake. The people were very surprised and asked Mulla for the secret of his strategy. “It’s very simple,” he replied. “I know this miser wouldn’t give anything to anyone. So instead of saying ‘Give me your hand,’ I said, ‘Take my hand,’ and sure enough he took it.”
