Best excuse ever

For sheer inventiveness, it doesn’t get much better, you have to admit.

“Sorry, m’lud, can’t come to court, because I’ve got to get there on foot, since I have renounced the world, and it’s 2200 km away so that will take me 8 months to walk!”

Fab excuse.

I’m a tad confused about the rights & wrongs of the monk’s crime, to be honest.  But suffice it to say that I’m all for walking, and hats off to him for tackling 10-12km per day.

    Bal Diksha?
    The practice of renouncing the world by children?
    Forging a gov’t notification too.
    Egads.

    Courtesy Mr. Wikipedia = “Bal diksha or the induction of minors in monastic order” – so, yes, I guess it is a sort of renouncing of the world, Beatrix. Depends whether the “bal” have the right later on to renounce their forced renunciation, I guess. But I suspect the forging of a government notification is the truly serious offence here 🙂
