What is fate? 0

“What is Fate?”Nasruddin was asked by a scholar,”Is it one cause and one effect?”
No,said Nasruddin,”Fate is a succession of intertwined events,some precedent,some happening after and all influencing one other.”
Saying this ,Mullah glanced out of the window.A procession was passing by in the street,with drummets beating a rhythm.Taking in the view mullah continued “See.They are taking the that man to be hanged.I know the case and i wonder :will that man die today because someone gave him a silver coin which he used to buy a knife with which he committed the murder to steal a purse ?Was it because someone saw him do it?or was it because no body stopped him from committing the crime?”
