How does God plays with human beings — it’s very hard to understand. Here a story goes: A King was worried over his daughter, her uncommon attitude and choices. Things went horrible when she grew up; King was able to fulfill all the eccentric wishes of hers but couldn’t get any slightest idea about what things and qualities she wanted in her prospective husband. King tried to her all the princes of far and wide but she refused to pick one for herself. Month by month King went restless and more irritated, consequently he thought to teach her a lesson.
He ordered his ministers to find a mad-man. Ministers ran their horses, and within a week they found a mad-man by look and by act — they knew that he was mad since his birth. So they drew him to the court and he was polished well to look good, and the King forcefully married his daughter with him.
In the very first night the princess went furious when she knew of what kind he was, she insulted him and moreover slapped him. The mad man felt a thunderbolt in his heart that his wife had slapped him. He wished to die at the very moment … and he ran and ran … and he reached a temple, went inside, closed the door and started beating his head on the stone, skin tore apart, nerves cut out and blood started pouring out and still he wished to die and continued…. Just when he was about to die, he heard someone is knocking at the door. He ignored. Knocking went louder and louder. He realised a female voice too. “Who are you?” he said. “I am your mother Kali,” she replied. He asked, “Why now?! You didn’t help me when I was mad and looked bad. Then why, now … now, you came at this moment?”
Kali said, “Close your eyes, and see.” He closed his eyes and was stunned, he found that he had been a worshipper of Kali for seven consecutive births and in each birth he had died by offering his head to Kali. Tears started flowing from his eyes, he opened the gate from inside, Mother Kali came in. She touched him on his head: his wound disappeared at the moment, he gained wisdom and sharp intellect , goddess Saraswati established on his tongue and was transformed into a very attractive man.
Mother Kali then said, “ this whole drama of your madness was created by me, ‘coz I wanted you to marry with a princess, otherwise it wasn’t possible — I created all the circumstances for you and now at the last moment of your death I rescued you”. And with a loving conversation mother Kali disappeared.The man didn’t remain the man, he had become something else. When he returned to the palace singing a verse in praise of the King — King couldn’t recognize him, his wife that rude princes who slapped him also couldn’t recognize … later on this man Kalidas disclosed everything and since then didn’t suffer any problem in his life.
