Power of God

It pays to be connected. at the highest level possible.
this may not be new to you, but, when you see that in reality, one starts thinking...
Today, a strange thing happened on my flight. i had, through web-check in got my favourite seat - and was the first to check in, as reflected in the SEQ # on the ticket.
i had to check in a suitcase, and went to the counter, the person was very confused. she found that my printout said 10c, while the screen showed that 16f was blocked for me!
after a couple of rounds of hush hush discussions with colleagues and a supervisor, i was told that there was some confusion and gave me a boarding pass with the new seat allocation. the SEQ on the boarding pass was 87!
i could not guess what the reason could be.
inside the aircraft, i was very curious to see the person who had stolen my rightful seat! he looked somewhat familiar - and there were a couple of airport officials who were making some petty conversation with him.
so, i asked the hostess who that gentleman was. ever ready to help the passengers, she smiled and said that she did not know his name, but that he was a swamiji.
that was when i realized the full impact of the first line of this post..

a related contextual line that i had heard from a friend - after the recent cricket controversies during India's tour of Australia, abot the clout of the BCCI..
Q: what is the difference between BCCI and God?
A: God does not think that (s)he is BCCI!
