"You said it"

Good morning, Sir. May I come in? I came to join your yoga class."

"Please come in and take your seat. You look a bit worried. Anything wrong?"

"Nothing. I dropped my key ring. Looking around for someone to pick it up
for me"

''It is there, on the carpet, right under your leg"

"Usually, I call my wife to pick up things which I drop inadvertently"

" But your wife is not here. That lady, coming out of the kitchen with your
coffee is my wife and she won't pick up your key ring. In fact, I pick from
the floor everything she drops and there is a reason for that. Shall I pick
up the key for you?"

"No Sir, I will do it"
''Have you sprained your neck?"

"No, Sir"

"Your teeth are in friendly terms with the gums?"

"Yes, Sir"

''If you are absolutely certain that your head or teeth won't fall off when
you bend, why are you hesitating to bow down and pick up the key?"

''No hesitation. I 'm not used to. That is all. Anyway, I have picked up my
key now "

"Stand up on the floor, drop the key again and pick up. Drop and pick up
like that, twenty times in two minutes"

"The yoga class has already started?"

"Yes. It has."

"With no prayers, no pranayamam practice?"

"Yes. That is my way of teaching. If you dislike my teaching, you may

"No, Sir. I won't withdraw. Shall I drop the key again?"

''No need, if the count suggested is over. Go home, do everything on your
own and don't seek your wife's help''

"But my wife is a very kind and considerate woman. She won't allow me to do
any of my personal routines"

"can you change her habit?"

''Has any husband succeeded in changing the habits of his woman?"

"Wise and valid question. Then, have another wife who will sit on your
head, and not at your feet waiting for the fall of the car key"

"Has any husband been able to change his wife on his own volition?"

"Another wise and valid question. Remember one thing. Your wife is turning
her body and soul fit like a fiddle by performing all physical activities
at home while you are only blotting and aging faster than her. You know
what happens if you age faster than your wife?"

"Now, you are asking me a wise and valid question, Sir. She might go away
from me and sit on the head of someone else"

''Yes. You want that to happen?"

"No Sir"

"Then go home and--"

"Drop my car key twenty times and pick it up within two minutes, three
times a day"

'' Yes. The class went on well today. You can come again next Sunday. See
you. Good bye"

''Sir I dropped the key again, inadvertently"

" I see. It has now become a habit for you. Don't practice the same
exercise at home and don't wait till next Sunday. Come tomorrow itself by
walk, so that there is no possibility of dropping the car key"

"Five miles by walk?"

''Yes, let me see whether that too becomes a habit. If so, you don't need
any yoga classes"

''And my caring and considerate wife will have no part in my walk thereby
no chance of her become younger than me"

"Your mind too has become brighter by my lessons. Have always that fear so
that you both will lead an active life"

''Isn't it that fear behind your habit of picking up everything your wife
drops on the floor, Sir ?''

"You said it"

I remember people would walk for an hour, but inside the house would like someone to run errand for them and the humorous part is to pull the weighing scale with legs to take weight and not ready to bend and pick it up!
 Lazy people would find a way out.
