Sir for 50 marks can we do a project please?
This is a question which is difficult to handle….but mostly one has to say yes…so I tell them stories of how cut n paste does not work. In Mr. Fali Nariman’s autobiography ‘Before Memory Fades’ he has given an instance of this…
At a party in Pandit Nehru’s residence..at the end of the dinner there was a single bone piece on Panditji’s plate.
Playing with it…he asked…’What history character does this remind you of?’..
Then he replied…’Bon-aparte’ … and broke the bone…and everybody laughed.
One of his cabinet Ministers…then threw a party..and reached the same situation…
He asked…’What history character does this remind you of?’
..then breaking the bone he said ‘Napolean’ …and nobody laughed!
He said…’When Panditji says a joke…you all laugh…when I say…nobody laughs’….
the lesson is simple…if you do not know the punch line..do not say the joke 🙂
