One day, Nasruddin was chatting 
with his friends.
He began to boast, “No one can 
match my skill in archery.
I string the bow, take an 
aim, and shoot an 
arrow...
Wh...o...o...sh.
The arrow is sure to hit
bang on the target.”
Hearing this, one of 
his friends immediately 
brought a bow and 
some arrows.
Giving them to 
Nasruddin, he said, 
“Here,  Nasruddin!
Take this bow and 
arrows.”
Then pointing towards a 
target, he said, “Aim at 
that target and shoot an 
arrow.”
Nasruddin held the bow in his hands, strung it,
aimed at the target and shot an arrow.
Wh...o...o...o...o...
The arrow didn’t hit the target!
Instead it fell down somewhere in the 
middle.
“Ha...ha...ha...ha...”
His friends started 
laughing.
They said, “Hey, 
Nasruddin! Is this 
your best aim?”
“Oh, no!
Not at all,” said 
Nasruddin, 
defending himself.
“This wasn’t my aim. 
It was Azad’s aim.
I just showed you how 
the Azad shoots an arrow.”
Saying this, Nasruddin picked 
up another arrow.
Once again, he strung the bow, aimed at the target,
and shot the arrow.
This time, the arrow fell a little further than where it 
had fallen before.

“Of course not,”

“Even this aim was not mine.
It was the chief guard’s aim.”
Now somebody remarked,
“Well...
Now who’s next on

Hearing

Nasruddin

Everybody stared at Nasruddin,
