Trojan Cows & Elephants

When the Trojan Paris absconded with Helen, wife of the Spartan king, war exploded. It had been raging for 10 long years when the Trojans believed they had finally overcome the Greeks. Little did they knew, the Greeks had another trick hidden up.

 

In a stroke of genius, the Greeks built an enormous wooden horse with a hollow belly in which men could hide. The horse was built by Epeius, a master carpenter and pugilist.

 

The Greeks, pretending to desert the war, sailed to the nearby island of Tenedos, leaving behind Sinon, who persuaded the Trojans that the horse was an offering to Athena (goddess of war) that would make Troy impregnable, the Trojans happily accepted it and brought the horse within their fortified city.

 

That night, as the Trojans slept, Greeks hidden inside snuck out the trap door. Then, they proceeded to slaughter and decisively defeat the Trojans.

 

Last night Dr. Aamir Liaquat said on his show that Indians should not always dig-in to find controversies, instead they might look for positivity. In his comments (definitely on a lighter note) he said we might hide some guys in garb-skinned cows to attack them, and because they adore (worship) cows, probably they could achieve infiltration, as they don’t attack cows.

 

My friends (foes) who spent their days and nights devising plans to attack or those who had a virtual dream of doing a surgical strike on our land must wake up; we might stratagem to their surprise, with such a classic technique. Our Trojan cows or elephants might be lurking about your borders or cities, so stay alert we might be coming.

 

Tip: Start screening all the cows and elephants roaming in your homeland, as you did with the pigeons captured on borders with our country.
