Do we solve the questions?

I remember one beautiful statement from Osho. Osho says, the question which can be answered is not the real the real question. A true question can never be answered. If we get answer for a question, the only conclusion is that the question was bogus. It was either a superficial question or a superficial answer was given.

In a permit room, a man used to come daily. He used to drink for hours. The one specialty if this man was, he used to put two french fries in his two noses while drinking. The waiter always wondered why the hell this strange man used to so daily. One day, the man again sat to drank and asked the waiter to bring french fries. Waiter said that fries are not available.

The man asked for two ladyfingers. Waiter brought them. Man put those two ladyfingers in his nose. The waiter could not resist his curiosity. He asked the gentleman.

“Why these two ladyfingers in your nose, sir?”

Waiter thought he would get some concrete answer. Instead, the gentleman answered,

“Because you do not have fries.”

All the answers that we give are as bogus as the above given answer.

A true answer never exists.True questions can never be answered. True questions can only be dropped.
