Based on a famous Panchatantra story…… June 28, 2007

Once upon a time, there was a software engineer who used to develop
programs on his Pentium machine, sitting under a tree on the banks of a
river. He used to earn his bread by selling those programs in the Sunday
market.

One day, while he was working, his machine tumbled off the table and fell
in the river. Encouraged by the Panchatantra story of his childhood (the
woodcutter and the axe), he started praying to the River Goddess.

The River Goddess wanted to test him and so appeared only after one month
of rigorous prayers. The engineer told her that he had lost his computer in
the river. As usual, the Goddess wanted to test his honesty.

She showed him a match box and asked, “Is this your computer ?”

Disappointed by the Goddess’ lack of computer awareness, the engineer
replied, “No.”

She next showed him a pocket-sized calculator and asked if that was his.

Annoyed, the engineer said “No, not at all!!”

Finally, she came up with his own Pentium machine and asked if it was his.

The engineer, left with no option, sighed and said “Yes.”

The River Goddess was happy with his honesty. She was about to give him all

three items, but before she could make the offer, the engineer asked her,
“Don’t you know that you’re supposed to show me some better computers
before bringing up my own ?”

The River Goddess, angered at this, replied, “I know that, you stupid idiot!
The first two things I showed you were the Trillennium and the Billennium,
the latest computers from IBM!” So saying, she disappeared with the
Pentium!!

Moral: If you’re not up-to-date with technology trends, it is better keep
your mouth shut and let people think you’re a genius….!
