An Interesting Story

  1. 1. This is the story of X.<br />This is X<br />
  2. 2. Java(19.1%), C(15.2%)<br />C++(10.1%), PHP(8.7%)<br />Visual Basic(8.4%), Perl(6.2%)<br />Python(3.8%), C#(3.7%)<br />JavaScript(3.1%), Ruby(2.6%)<br />Xwas a programmer<br />
  3. 3. Xhad a laptop, the latest phone, a LCD television and he also had a printer.<br />
  4. 4. But Xwas not happy. <br />
  5. 5. Because Xknew the Earth was dying. <br />
  6. 6. X wanted to “Save the Earth”<br />But How? <br />?<br />
  7. 7. So X googled it…<br />
  8. 8. <ul><li>He also joined forums
  9. 9. Asked his Twitter friends
  10. 10. Posted it on Facebook
  11. 11. Read blogs
  12. 12. Read Wikipedia
  13. 13. Tried every other thing </li></li></ul><li>But X was not satisfied…<br />“404: Page not found”<br />“No comments on this post”<br />“This Wikipedia page needs verification”<br />
  14. 14. X even wrote a program to <br />‘Save the Earth’<br />Start<br />Enter ‘Earth’<br />Save the Earth<br />Has Earth been saved?<br />No<br />Yes<br />Stop<br />Global <br />Variables<br />missing<br />But that also didn’t work!<br />
  15. 15. Then one day.. X set out to discover the truth…<br />
  16. 16. “The Truth”, he was told, lies hidden in <br />the Himalayas!<br />The Truth is here. <br />
  17. 17. He traveled thousands of miles… <br />Truth<br />Beer<br />
  18. 18. On his way to “The Truth” he noticed, that <br />the world is full of people, <br />humans are everywhere. <br />
  19. 19. X’s Journal: <br />Note to self:<br />I must practice birth control in my married life with ‘Y’. We’ll have only one child and we’ll call him ‘Z’. <br />There are too many people on earth! Poor planet cannot take it anymore. I think if we can control our population somehow we can save a lot of resources and we ‘might’ save the earth. <br />
  20. 20. As he traveled far and wide, he faced the brunt of the scorching sun and missed the shade of trees. <br />
  21. 21. X’s Journal: <br />Note to self:<br />It is time I started planting some trees. And I should spend more time in my garden than in my office.<br />Strangely, I am not missing my air conditioner but am missing trees. After all, I cannot carry my A.C with me. The world need more trees to cool down. And then we’ll have regular rains and many more freebies.<br />
  22. 22. The Road to ‘The Truth’ was difficult.<br />What was making it more unbearable was the polluted air. <br />You @$@#$!!<br />Stop driving a cigar!!<br />*cough* <br />
  23. 23. !!!!!<br />And then he remembered, that it has been months since his car’s last maintenance. It dawned on him that he was himself ‘driving acigar’! <br />
  24. 24. X’s Journal: <br />Note to self:<br />Carpool, regular maintenance, optimum inflation in tires, constant driving speeds – I have to learn many lessons! <br /> And it is time to buy a bike!<br />Our cars contribute a lot to earth’s misery. We need to get out of them once in a while to realize the damage we are causing. We might not need better cars, if we can settle for ‘lesser’ cars. <br />
  25. 25. Himalayas were far and there were times when he’d have to travel long distances without water. <br />He had the money, but when water wasn’t available, money was useless. <br />I can haz water! <br />
  26. 26. Soon X realized that a large part of world‘s population doesn’t care about software updates and latest mobile phones.<br />For them, Survival is Luxury!<br />
  27. 27. X’s Journal: <br />Note to self:<br />I shall not waste water and try hard to conserve it. No more leaking taps, No sir!!<br />I shall save anything worth saving; electricity, water, food.. Everything.<br />Now that I’ve felt the pangs of thirst and hunger, I respect my luxury and I respect poverty too. Conservation is the key for we need ‘water’ more than the earth needs it. And saving water for one, is saving water for another! <br />
  28. 28. Andas X got closer to ‘the Truth’, he could feel it from within. <br />I think I am having the heebie-jeebies!!<br />
  29. 29. X realized that there are still people who live without shelter, adequate food, potable water and basic education.<br />
  30. 30. X understood that the lucky ones who have wealth, must share some of it with those who don’t have enough. <br />
  31. 31. He learnt the greatest language of all times – the language of nature.<br />
  32. 32. And one dayX was there.<br />The Truth is still here. <br />Now, X is here<br />
  33. 33. And in that moment… <br />Truth Inside<br />(Handle with Care)<br />He knew it all.. <br />
  34. 34. X’s Journal: <br />Note to self:<br />‘Saving the Earth’ isn’t difficult anymore. I realized my folly. You don’t save the Earth – rather, you save yourself! <br />I came all the way to discover the truth, thinking that the truth lies somewhere, hidden, waiting to be discovered. I was wrong. The truth is out there, in the open, it isn’t disguised, it is stark naked. <br />
  35. 35. Now Xis famous. <br />
  36. 36. And Xis happy. <br />
  37. 37. But Who is X?<br />
  38. 38. Well, like mathematical equations, X is very much unknown.<br />
  39. 39. Xcould be a programmer, a musician, a student, a dancer, a politician, a banker – he can be anyone, or everyone. <br />
  40. 40. Why don’t you try being X?<br />
  41. 41. Think about it.*<br />Created by Effect works <br />CONTACT <br />BRIDGE SYSTEMS & SERVICES LLC <br />FOR GREEN SOLUTIONS<br /><br />
