Waiting Nandi

“Do you know why that bull is lying there”, somebody asked. I didn’t. “Long ago, Shiva and his Nandi (bull) were on a long, lonely travel. After many days Shiva got so horny that he did the bull an indecent proposal: ‘I’m in a desperate need; if I can have sex with you right now; I will help you out any time in the future when the needs are the other way around’. The bull agreed and offered his services. Many years later, while they were on a journey once more, the bull had his hard time and he reminded Shiva of their appointment. But Shiva ran off as fast as he could. And that’s why Nandi is lying in front the Shiva-temple, waiting, waiting till promises are full-filled.” We had a good laugh.
