I met this nice middle aged Indian gentle man. I was trying to show him Bhagavatam, since usually Indians say they have Gita. To my surprise he pointed to the Gita and says, “Can I have that instead?”
I said enthusiastically , “sure!”
It turns out that he is visiting from Florida and some one smashed his car window in hotel parking lot and stole the Gita from the car. He was in the middle of reading the book. So he was all disappointed and the very next day he runs into me and buys himself a Gita. He asked me what I thought about the incident? I told him, “lucky thief” he really like that.
