MNC Working: Creating the need Part 2

MNC Working: Creating the need Part 2

The story goes like this; there was King with fame of thinking about welfare and care of the people. One day, some of the representative of some foreign companies approached the king for grating the permission a particular piece of land from his kingdom. As this piece of land was among the most fertile lands of kingdom, situated at foot hills of mountain with dense and beautiful forest surroundings and King might has to face unrest and rebel of the people hence at first instant King refused to grant such permission, but soon the representative was back with assurance that they will not adopt any forcing tactics and villagers will sale their land at their own will. As the company was also offering a handsome monetary benefit for King just for granting the permission and presence of this assurance King granted conditional permission that company will buy only the land in the village for which owner approach them for it.

One day one stranger appeared in the village and asks for the permission of village head for living there in village. He narrated to village head as he was with a order related to forest from a foreigner company, from which economic gains of the villagers will also boosted hence the village head allowed him to stay at considerable huge bare land near the forest. Next day man called the meeting of the villagers and narrated his need, which is going to boost economic gains of the villagers. He told look friends I have to supply thousands of the monkeys to a company and this is the only village near the most dense forest of the kingdom so he is going to pay Rs. 100/- for every monkey. The proposal was much attractive hence villager thought of forgetting about their regular work and started catching monkeys. Every evening villagers start getting thousands of rupees that motivated them and others as a result every villager started catching the monkeys. Day by day it starts getting to tough for villagers to find and catch the monkeys. One day villagers were called by the man asking them to keep on catching the monkeys as he is going for supply the collected monkeys to his customer and will be back in two days of time.

After returning back he again called the villager, this time he was not alone but with two other person, to whom he introduced as his servants, and announced that as he is getting huge profits from the monkey sales and wish to share it with the villagers so in the future villagers will get Rs. 500/- for every monkey. This has forced villagers to forget about the troubles they were facing in catching the monkey and they started the work with more zeal and enthusiasm. Surprisingly they were founding abundance of monkeys in the forest in comparison of lost few days. Days were passing no body was thinking about their field as they were earning handsomely from the business of catching monkeys. Naturally the population of monkey started showing signs of reducing but all of sudden one day man announced that now onwards he is going to pay Rs. 1000/- for every monkey. This brought back the life among the villagers because it was a regular thing that even after roaming whole day in the forest many families were coming back even without a single monkey. Villager kept on catching the monkeys and fertile lands were remaining barren without the crops.

Time wheels kept on moving. Villagers were founding it real tough to locate monkey in the forest. One day that man called the meeting of villagers. "Friends, since last few months, we are working with a specific aim and that have boosted our economic status to a great extant. I have called you all to inform that; I am going on overseas trip for six month. In my absence my servants will keep the record of monkeys caught by everyone of you. The only difference will be they will not pay you, When I will return I will pay Rs. 5,000/- for every monkey." Next morning the man left the village.

Day by day villagers were founding catching of monkey a real hard to finish job. A few were thinking of returning back to their crop fields but memories of easiness of life of days of catching monkeys were proving sufficient hurdle for the return. One day one of servant, who in mean while created good friendly relations with some of the villagers ask them that if they pay Rs. 2000/- for one monkey he will make entry against their name and they will get Rs. 5000/- when that man return. The news spread like the forest fire among the villagers. People started to approach both of the servants and they were finalizing the entries of catching monkeys at the rate of Rs. 3000 to Rs.4000. Soon the villagers were facing the problem of liquid money. The servants came forward with solution that there is a person who will pay handsomely for their lands. It was hard decision but as time of return of the man was near so almost all were agree to sale their fertile lands. Servants called that man who finalized the sale dead and handed over the money to villagers. The servants told to villagers that knowing the hard time that the villagers were facing they have decided to make the entries at the concessional rate of Rs. 1000/- per monkey, hence more than 75% of money that villagers got from the sale of land was deposited with the servants.

One morning villagers saw both the servants missing. They thought both might went to visit the person who purchased lands of villagers. Time was flying and villagers were waiting for the return of man so they can produce their claims and collect their money. It was almost more than a month from the scheduled returned of monkey buyer, when a person with sale dead and military of king entered into village and ask them to vacant the place. In the presence of sale dead and military villagers were left with only option of leaving the motherland.

This story was narrated to me as the ill effects of greed of human beings, but look this has turned me MNC, by part I, I have created the need, as if I have posted this story as a normal posting most of you might not have read it.
