Hodja and Scholar

A Mulla Story :Hodja and Scholar


Nasruddin Hodja ferrying a scholar across a river said something ungrammatical to him.

"Have you never studied grammar?" asked the scholar.

"No," said Hodja.

"Then half your life has been wasted," said the scholar looking pityingly at him.

Sometime later Hodja turned to his passenger.

"Have you ever learnt to swim?" he asked.

"No," said the scholar.

"Then your whole life has been wasted," said Hodja. "We're sinking."
