Gone gray

A Mullah Nasruddin story

Gone gray

Mullah Nasruddin
Mullah Nasruddin

Nasreddin often quarreled violently with his elderly mother, and she chided him: “My son! My hair has turned gray — only due to your constant contradicting and quarreling with me!”

He replied: “It may be that your disputes with me have made your hair turn gray, but tell me this: who told you to pull all your teeth?”
