    Tales from the Panchatantra

    Tales from the Panchatantra

    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

    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

    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.
    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
    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 keep
    your mouth shut and let people think you're a fool than to open your mouth
    and remove all doubt.
