Boon from the Almighty

‘If God becomes glad, manifests himself before thee,
and desires to bestow a boon, what wilt thou ask for?  
Wilt thou pray for salvation?’

‘No, not for salvation.’

‘Then wilt thou ask for heaven?’

‘No, not even heaven.’

‘Then wilt thou ask for wealth?’

‘Never shall I wish for wealth also.’

‘Wilt thou ask for nothing then?  He will be displeased by they behaviour.’

‘I shall only pray to Him:  O my Lord!  
Make independent and happy the holy mother of Rishis of yore
whom you have so long kept unhappy and in bondage.’

‘And if He rejects thy prayer?’

‘Then I shall ask for exchanging what little power of penance I possess.’

‘And yet if thy offer is not accepted?’

‘I shall solemnly request the Lord to be kind enough to get away from my sight.’

One autumn morning, in some hermitage on the bank of the Ganga,
the above conversation between a father and his ascetic son took place.
Most of the fighters for the country of independence were in prison at the time.  
But after listening to that conversation, my doubts were removed.  
The motherland could not take long time for liberation,
I was assured by the testimony I came across.
