When you fear the death is near
Once a man saw Yamdoot (the messenger of death) passing through his village and the man asked him where he was going. The messenger replied, 'Yamraj (the Lord of death) has ordered me to get one hundred men from your village but today I am going to another village and will come back to your village tomorrow'. The news got spread in the village like a wildfire. Next day people noticed that number of casualties mounted to a thousand. The Yamdoot on his return, again met the man who asked him, 'You said you were asked to get one hundred lives, then how did a thousand die?' Yamdoot replied that he killed only one hundred, while the rest died of fear.
