Just for laughs…
When Mahatma Gandhi was studying law at the University College, London, a white professor, whose last name was Peters, disliked him intensely.
One day, Peters was having lunch at the dining room when Gandhi came along with his tray and sat next to the professor.
The professor said, “Mr Gandhi, you do not understand, a pig and a bird do not sit together to eat.”
Gandhi looked at him as a parent would a rude child and calmly replied, “You do not worry professor. I’ll fly away,” and he went and sat at another table.
Peters, raging with anger, decided to take revenge.
The next day in class he posed the following question, “Mr Gandhi, if you were walking down the street and found a package, and within was a bag of wisdom and another bag with money, which one would you take?”
Without hesitating, Gandhi responded, “The one with the money, of course.”
Peters, smiling sarcastically said, “I, in your place, would have taken the wisdom.”
Gandhi shrugged and responded, “Each one takes what he doesn’t have.”
Peters, by this time was in a rage. So great was his anger that he wrote on Gandhi’s exam sheet the word ‘IDIOT’ and gave it to Gandhi.
Gandhi took the exam sheet and sat down at his desk trying very hard to remain calm while he contemplated his next move.
A few minutes later, Gandhi got up, went to the professor and told him in a dignified polite tone, “Mr Peters, you signed the sheet, but you did not give me the grade.”
Moral: Don’t mess with intelligent people.
