Vijay's question

Maya is the probable answer. 
A poem of bharthruhari runs 
"Gnawing a hole thruthe net in search of
a morsel, the mouse falls into the
mouth of the sanke. Quenching its 
hunger, the snake escapes thru the
hole in the net"
A modern Bharthru-hari would have written
"Driving her caddy the damsel gets lost
in the slum. Seeking directions, she is
viloated and shot. The culprit drives
away in the caddy along an escape route"
Strange are the ways of fate, as one has to
reason.
Th Good LORD manifests himself by his
absence.
