Modern Panchtantra Story


Modern Panchtantra Story

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.

Meri Dost Hain Lyrics

Ho ho ho..
Woo woo..
Ho ho ho ho
Woahh woahh..

Aaja mein hawaon pe bitha ke le chalu,
Tu hi to, tu hi to meri dost hai,
Aaja mein khalaon mein utha ke le chalu,
Tu hi to meri dost hai,
Aaawaz ka dariyaan hu,
Behta hu mein neeli raaton mein,
Mein jaagta rehta hu,
Neend bhari jheel si aankhon mein,
Aawaz hu mein..

Aaja mein hawaon pe bitha ke le chalu,
Tu hi to, tu hi to meri dost hai,
Aaja mein khalaon mein utha ke le chalu,
Tu hi to meri dost hai..

Raat mein chandni kabhi,
Aise gungunati hai,
Sun zara lagta hai tumse,
Aawaz milati hai,
Mein khayalon ki mehek hu,
Gungunate saaz par,
Ho sake to mila le,
Aawaz ko le saaz par..

Aaja mein hawaon pe bitha ke le chalu,
Tu hi to, tu hi to meri dost hai,
Aaja mein khalaon mein utha ke le chalu,
Tu hi to meri dost hai,
Aaawaz ka dariyaan hu,
Behta hu mein neeli raaton mein,
Mein jaagta rehta hu,
Neend bhari jheel si aankhon mein,
Aawaz hu mein..

Hooo..
Kabhi dekha hai saahil,
Jahan shaam utarti hai,
Kehte hai samunder se,
Ek pari guzarti hai,
Wo raat ki rani hai,
Sargam par chalti hai,
Re re sa re sa re sa sa re sare,
Aaja mein hawaon pe bitha ke le chalu,
Tu hi to, tu hi to mera dost hai,
Aaja mein khalaon mein utha ke le chalu,
Tu hi to mera dost hai,
Aaawaz ka dariyaan hu,
Behti hu mein neeli raaton mein,
Mein jaagti rehti hu,
Neend bhari jheel si aankhon mein,
Aawaz hu mein..

Pakistan greats laud Kumble


KARACHI (AFP) – Former Pakistan greats on Monday paid tribute to Indian leg-spinner Anil Kumble after one of the world’s finest ever bowlers announced his retirement from Test cricket.

The 38-year-old Indian ace, the third highest wicket-taker in Test cricket with 619 from 132 matches, announced his retirement after the drawn third Test against Australia in New Delhi on Sunday.

Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram said Kumble was a role model.

“On and off the field Kumble proved a quality cricketer,” Wasim told AFP. “He was a fierce competitor on the field and a gentleman off it,” said Wasim, who played against the Indian spinner until his retirement in 2003.

Wasim said Kumble’s 10-wicket haul in an innings against Pakistan at New Delhi in 1999 was particularly memorable.

“It is still at the back of my mind because I was the last victim. Waqar (Younis) and I were at the crease and Kumble had taken nine wickets so my partner told me that he will hit out so that Kumble doesn’t get the last wicket.

“I assured him that I will handle Kumble and he won’t get the 10th wicket but in the very next over Kumble spun a sharp delivery and I was out. It proved he was one of the greatest spinners.”

Former Pakistan leg-spinner Abdul Qadir said Kumble was different from celebrated Aussie Shane Warne, who retired last year with 708 wickets in 145 matches.

“For me he was less artistic than Warne but the confidence Kumble exuded is an example for future cricketers. He had a fantastic art and a fantastic career,” said Qadir, who took 236 wickets in 67 Tests.

“Kumble’s art was not obvious, Warne’s was. Warne had perfect leg-spin, Kumble’s wasn’t, yet with the God-gifted confidence Kumble had he played cricket with pomp and pride.”

Another former leg-spinner, Intikhab Alam, said Kumble’s contribution to Indian cricket was “phenomenal”.

“The world will always pay tribute to Kumble. His services for Indian cricket were phenomenal and it was sensible of him to retire at an appropriate time because Amit Mishra has almost taken his place,” said Alam, who is now Pakistan team coach.
