Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God was missing for 6 days. Micheal the Archangel found him resting on the 7th day.
He inquired of God “Where have you been?” God took a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds “Look Micheal, Look what I’ve made!”
Micheal the Archangel looked puzzled and said
“What is it?”
“It’s a planet” replied God and I’ve put life on it. I’m going to call it Earth and it’s going to be a great place of balance.
“Balance?” inquired Micheal, still confused. God explained, pointing to different parts of the Earth.
“For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over there I’ve placed a continent of white people and over there a continent of black people”
God continued pointing to different countries. “This one will be extremely hot while this one will be very cold and covered in ice”
The Archangel, impressed by God’s work, then pointed to a triangular land mass and said “What’s that one?”
“Aaaah”, God said “That’s India, the most glorious place of Earth. There are beautiful beaches, mountains, streams, hills, waterfalls and vineyards. The people from India are going to be very beautiful, handsome, modest, intelligent and humorous and they are going to be found travelling the world holding good jobs…. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking and high-achieving and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace, play cricket and win world cups. Even their knowledge and wisdom will be appreciated and exported to far places”
Micheal gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed
“What about balance God? You said they would be balance!”
God replied wisely “wait until you see the clowns that will run their government” 😉 😉 😉
