Daughter: How does Okto know whether we are good or bad? Does he keep an eye on everyone?
Dad: Yes, most definitely. Do you see a great ball of fire outside your window?
Daughter: The sun?
Dad: That’s Okto’s eye. He can see every corner of this planet with it. No person’s bad deeds go unnoticed. Okto sees them all.
Daughter: Is that why people do bad things at night?
Dad: That is just a myth. What people don’t know is that Okto can see us at night as well.
Daughter: But the sun is not there at night.
Dad: That is when he uses his second eye.
Daughter: The moon?
Dad: Right you are. So Okto can see us at night as well as during the day.
Daughter: Wow! Now I know what the sun and moon are all about! But Dad, sometimes I don’t see the sun or the moon in the sky. How does Okto watches us then?
Dad: Um… uh… It is not visible to you but Okto is always there.
Daughter: If Okto sees me doing something bad will he punish me instantly?
Dad: Sooner or later Okto will.
Daughter: What about those little children who are born with diseases? What wrong have they done to be punished like that?
Dad: Um… uh… well it is a punishment for some evil deeds of their past lives.
Daughter: So reincarnation is true?
Dad: Yes, yes, very much.
Daughter: So why didn’t Okto punish them then? It sounds very evil of Okto to give them life and then make them suffer.
Dad: What Okto does is always right. It is all part of a bigger plan. Who are we to question Okto’s ways.
Daughter: What’s the bigger plan, Dad?
Dad: Ah, that nobody knows. Nobody knows at all.
