Modern Panchantra 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
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
that was his. Annoyed, the engineer said "No, not at all!!"  Finally,
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,
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
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
with the Pentium!!

Moral: If you're not up-to-date with technology trends, it is better
your mouth shut and let people think you're a genius, than to open your
mouth and remove all doubt!!!

Quote of the day

Excepting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person.
is like expecting the Lion not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.

Ant mgmt story

Every day, a small ant arrives at work very early and starts work immediately.
She produces a lot and she was happy.
The Chief, a lion, was surprised to see that the ant was working without supervision.
He thought if the ant can produce so much without supervision, wouldn’t she produce even more if she
had a supervisor! So he recruited a cockroach who had extensive experience as supervisor and who was famous forwriting excellent reports.
The cockroach’s first decision was to set up a clocking in attendance system. He also needed a secretary to help him write and type his reports and …... he recruited a spider, who managed the archives and monitored all phone calls.
The lion was delighted with the cockroach's reports and asked him to produce graphs to describe production rates and to analyze trends, so that he could use them for presentations at Board‘s meetings.
So the cockroach had to buy a new computer and a laser printer and ... ... recruited a fly to manage the ITdepartment.
The ant, who had once been so productive and relaxed, hated this new plethora of paperwork and meetings which used up most of her time…!
The lion came to the conclusion that it was high time to nominate a person in charge of the department
where the ant worked. The position was given to the cicada, whose first decision was to buy a carpet and an ergonomic chair for his office. The new person in charge, the cicada, also needed a computer and a personal assistant ,who he brought from his previous department, to help him prepare a Work and Budget Control Strategic Optimisation Plan …
The Department where the ant works is now a sad place, where nobody laughs anymore and everybody has become upset...
It was at that time that the cicada convinced the boss , the lion, of the absolute necessity to start a climatic study of the environment .
Having reviewed the charges for running the ant’s department , the lion found out that the production was much less than before .
So he recruited the owl , a prestigious and renowned consultant to carry out an audit and suggest solutions.
The owl spent three months in the department and came up with an enormous report , in several volumes,
that concluded :“ The department is overstaffed ...”
Guess who the lion fires first?
The ant , of course, because she
“showed lack of motivation and had a negative attitude".
MORAL: - Positive attitude with true motivation always speed up work with good results.

Simple thought for the day

A wise man once sat in the audience & cracked a joke.

All laughed like crazy. After a moment, he cracked the same joke again and a little less people laughed this time.
... ...
He cracked the same joke again & again, when there was no laughter in the crowd, he smiled and said,
"When u can't laugh on the same joke again & again, then why do u keep crying over the same thing over and over again”

'Forget the past & move on
