Modern Panchtantra Story [ IT HUMOR ]

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 donkey! 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’s better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you’re a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Four friends, have a good laugh

Four friends, who hadn’t seen each other in 30 years, reunited at a party.After several drinks, one of the men had to use the rest room. Those who remained talked about their kids.

The first guy said, “My son is my pride and joy. He started working at a successful company at the bottom of the barrel.

He studied Economics and Business Administration and soon began to climb the corporate ladder and now he’s the president of the company. He became so rich that he gave his best friend a top of the line Mercedes for his birthday.”

The second guy said, “Darn, that’s terrific! My son is also my pride and joy. He started working for a big airline, and then went to flight school to become a pilot. Eventually he became a partner in the company, where he owns the majority of its assets. He’s so rich that he gave his best friend a brand new jet for his birthday.”

The third man said: “Well, that’s terrific! My son studied in the best universities and became an engineer. Then he started his own construction company and is now a multimillionaire. He also gave away something very nice and expensive to his best friend for his birthday: A 30,000 square foot mansion.”

The three friends congratulated each other just as the fourth returned from the restroom and asked: “What are all the congratulations for?” One of the three said: “We were talking about the pride we feel for the successes of our sons. ….What about your son?”

The fourth man replied: “My son is gay and makes a living dancing as a stripper at a nightclub.”

The three friends said: “What a shame…what a disappointment.”

The fourth man replied: “No, I’m not ashamed. He’s my son and I love him. And he hasn’t done too bad either. His birthday was two weeks ago, and he received a beautiful 30,000 square foot mansion, a brand new jet and a top of the line Mercedes from his three boyfriends.  !!!!!!!

Heartbreaks

Heartbreaks Happens to all those who have this incessant urge to be loved, I guess..

The first time it’s always pure..you want to love with all ur heart.. and then end up wondering, why you gave your heart to this person…

You keep falling in love again and again… most of the times, not knowing whether we are falling in love or just making a compromise to satisfy the need to be loved..

After many bad experiences.. the decision/disillusion..the feeling that we are not able to/incapable to love someone with all our heart..

Doubts…

Feeling worthless..when you KNOW you are a good person..and yet wonder.. “Why does this happen to me..Isn’t there a single person in this world who can identify with me??”…

But I guess .. we will know when that person comes..not because he/she is perfect/..but because we will be happy to make those sacrifices without feeling bad..

There is this story..

A teacher asked a student to go to the paddy field and pick the biggest paddy he comes across..only rule..you can never turn back!!!

The student found one as soon as he entered..but he left it there cos he thought he could find a bigger one..he kept throwing away the paddy..after he reached half way he realized that the paddies were getting smaller in size.. but he couldn’t go back..so he picked one which was much smaller in size than the one he had picked in the beginning..

When the student went back to the teacher, the teacher said..

This is love.. we always keep looking for better ones, only to realize that the ones we let go were better .. (maynot be always true..but the point here is..we keep looking for that elusive perfect partner who understands us totally)..

Then the teacher asked the student to go to the paddy field again.. and asked him to pick the biggest paddy..same rule..no turning back..

The student encountered a decent sized paddy and picked it..
When the student returned the teacher said..this is marriage..

You know there might be bigger and better ones there..but you settle for the one you have!..
