Great Indian Scientist!

Today, I came across a bizzare joke about Indian scientist.
It show how we Indian manipulate the words & prepare alternative for doing nothing.

The joke goes as follows-
After digging to a depth of 100 metres last year, Russian scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 1000 years, and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network one thousand years ago.

So, not to be outdone, in the weeks that followed, American scientists dug 200 metres and headlines in the US papers read: 'US scientists have found traces of 2000 year old optical fibres, and have concluded that their ancestors already had advanced high-tech digital telephone 1000 years earlier than the Russians.

'One week later, the Indian newspapers reported the following: 'After digging as deep as 500 metres, Indian scientists have found absolutely nothing.They have concluded that 5000 years ago, their ancestors were already using wireless technology.

This sounds bizzare & funny, but it has a deep lesson for us, the Indians.
Rather then playing with the words, we should concentrate on widening our horizons & working on competency to gain competitive advantage, so that don’t need to play these tricks for discovering nothing.
