Funny Gandhiji

by Michelle Fortes

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