Raj and Siva Prayers

Raj and Siva were very close companions. They were neighbors, studied together, completed their graduation and worked together. They planned to enjoy a vacation and took a sea voyage to explore different places. Unfortunately, their ship was wrecked in the middle of the ocean. While most of the travelers were unable to save themselves, only Raj and Siva, who knew how to swim, could manage to save their lives, by swimming to an isolated island.

They were very happy and thanked god for saving them. However, the island looked like a deserted island with hardly any trees, and poor atmosphere that no living organism could survive. They had no option, but pray to god to save their lives.

Raj and Siva sincerely prayed to god. Nothing happened even after a couple of days. They decided to split their ways into opposite ends of the island and challenged themselves about whose prayer would be powerful.

Both divided their region in the deserted island and offered their prayers to god.

Raj prayed god that he would need food to survive. Surprisingly, he got a pile of food, fruits and vegetables on the sea shore.

After two days, he requested for a beautiful girl as his wife, as he was feeling very lonely in the island. In a few hours, a ship wrecked again in the island near Kim’s region, where only a beautiful girl survived! He married the girl.

After a few days, he requested for more food and shelter. All prayers of Kim were granted by God.

Almost a month after the ship wreck, Raj decided to move back to his hometown. He prayed god to send him a ship to take him home. Surprisingly, a ship came and took Kim and his wife.

Just before the ship was about to move, a voice appeared!

‘Are you going alone, leaving your companion of life here?’

Raj was surprised, ‘May I know who is this and whom you are referring to? I have my wife with me!’

The voice said, ‘I’m the one whom you offered your prayers, whom you requested to save your life, and whom you requested food and shelter and of course, a wife!’

Raj happily stood on his knees and said, ‘Thank you god!’

Then god said, ‘But why do you leave your companion here?’

Raj was confused again!

Then god added, ‘Don’t get so excited my son. Your prayers are not answered and fulfilled by me. I was only fulfilling Siva’s prayers. He prayed only one thing to me! He said ‘Please fulfill all of Raj’s prayer’s, and that was his only prayer’.

Raj was in tears and rushed to the other side of the island. He realized that he did not even think about his best friend Ray, and was happily enjoying life with all pleasures.

He could not find Siva there and asked god, ‘Where was Siva?’

God replied, ‘I took him with me, the man with the golden heart should be with me! But I will fulfill all your prayers as I promised him to do so!’

Raj was completely broken and realized why his friend’s prayers were more powerful,
because it was totally selfless.
