I was reminded of a post that I wrote on Paisa Vasool some years ago when I came across this story of Mulla Nasrudin.
Taking his friend and his family along, Mulla Nasrudin went to the local amusement park. Foregoing all the other rides, Mulla hopped on the merry-go-round and kept riding it over and over again. Whenever the ride stopped, Mulla would get off dizzily, drink a glass of water and get back on. This went on for a good one hour.
“Wow, Mulla! I never knew you loved the merry-go-round so much,” said his friend.
“Love? I absolutely hate it!” Mulla replied. “I’m feeling sick and could throw up any moment.”
“Then why are you riding it?” his friend asked.
“The owner of this swing owes me 50 dollars, and the only way I will ever collect it from him is to take it out in trade.”
A typical paisa vasool foolishness indeed!

It seems to be universal: The grudge does the most harm to the grudge holder.

As usual, “What fools we mortals be.” Or, to put it more inelegantly, “We’re all a bunch of nuts.”
