Shersinh decided to join the army. He had to take some basic Geography, History Math etc courses in the army school.
Lieutenant Samratsinh began teaching geography:
“Soldiers, the earth is round”
Shersinh, very respectfully: “No sir, earth cannot be round, or we all would fall”
Lieutenant gave many examples to prove: “Shersinh, when the ship arrives from far in the ocean, first you see its chimney, then the bottom”
But Shersinh was not convinced.
Lieutenant: “They have taken pictures from outside the earth, that proves that the earth is round.”
But Shersinh kept on shaking his head.
Finally lieutenant gave up and went to the captain to report that he could not put in Shersinh’s head that the earth is round.
The captain whispered in lieutenant’s ear. Lieutenant came back to the class and gave an order :
“Soldier Shersinh, Atten……..tion. The captain has ordered that the earth is round”
Shersinh (obediently): “Yesss…………Sir”
