Waiting is killing

A rich man had lots of money. One time or the other some of his trusted assistants would abscond with some of his money. He always would seek them out wherever they had gone into hiding and put them in prison. Nowadays he was aged and more wise.

This time, another trusted associate ran away with his money and the police entreated him to give his nod. Please sir, we just need your consent so that we can go ahead and catch him from wherever he is now.

How long will you need to bring him back? Maybe a month, maybe more, maybe a year not more, the police man replied. My associate also will be thinking on the same lines. Maybe today, maybe tomorrow, maybe next month, they will come looking for me and I do not want this agony of waiting for him to stop. That will be his punishment…
