El viernes me tomé el día libre pq he estado en un Congreso de magia todo el finde (sí, magos, ilusionistas).

Don Jefe me sigue y ha visto mi vida un poco.

él creo que no lo sabía. Pq he llegado y me lo veo sentado en mi silla hablando con Jefa y Contable de una cosa y dice: uy! Qué haces tú aquí?
Y yo: eh... jefe... Hoy tenía médico pero vengo a trabajar.
Y él en plan: Jefa, tenemos a una famosa en la empresa. A una maga famosa.
Y yo en plan 😐 (a este hombre se le va la pinza).
Bueno. Al rato, bajo a su despacho y me dice: qué tal estás?
Y yo: muy bien, genial.
Y él: ya ya, eso he visto en insta, que te lo has pasado muy bien.
Y yo: pues sí, la verdad.
Y él: a dónde has ido?
Yo: no lo sabes? Era un

New folk, to explain: #Storytime, in which I write a story from scratch, live and uncensored, on Twitter. And it always starts like this: "There is a story the bees used to tell, which makes it hard to disbelieve."

1/🧵 Once upon a time, there were two Japanese brothers living in Germany. They knew the power of supporting their own country's industry and proudly used #MadeInJapan pencils, even when others looked down upon them. This is their story of faith and persistence. ✏️🇯🇵
2/ The brothers, Hiroshi & Kenji, faced criticism and ridicule from their peers for using Japanese pencils. But they never wavered in their belief in Japan's potential to excel in manufacturing. 📚🌟
3/ 🌆 As time passed, Japan's manufacturing capabilities grew, and the country began to develop high-quality products. Hiroshi & Kenji saw the fruits of their steadfast support and remained loyal to their homeland's industry. 🇯🇵💪

Llego esta mañana al despacho y tal (no hemos encontrado nadie para hablar francés y le toca pringar a una servidora) y a punto de salir me dice Jefa: qué experiencia tienes conduciendo coches automáticos? Dime la verdad 😆

Ityala aliboli, abakhe babonana bayophinda babonane futhi #StoryTime

The year was 1992 and I was with my dad in his White Chevrolet Commodore going to town. When we got to town, I am not really sure where we were going but this old man came in front of us, smiled with excitement
... he called out my dad's name "Edz yhooo Mkonqo Edz mfondin yhoo ntanga". My dad was a karateka/judoka okay. The next thing I saw were flying kicks gishiya-gishiya-gishiya iTayma ikhaba lotata umdala imbamba ngeWashing ikorobha ngaye fast wakhawuleza wabokoboko uTata wabantu..
Everyone was shocked in town, I was shocked as they were, then my dad said let's go sabuyela emotweni and we drove back home. I could see the old man was fuming with anger, we drove for a good 30km without him saying a word, but I had to break the silence I asked him "wenzeni..

How big the MAHABHARATA War was?

"Akshauhini" was the unit by which the size of the Army was used to measure. Akshauhini Sena was also called Chaturangini Sena.
We all have heard that in Mahabharata Pandavas had 7 Akshauhini Sena and Kauravas had 11 Akshauhini Sena. Let’s understand this.

Akshauhini Sena is a combination of 4 parts:

Foot Soldiers
In Akshauhini Sena, the no of Elephants and Chariots is the same, Horses are 3 times Elephants/Chariots and soldiers are 5 times Elephants/Chariots.

Krishna and Narakasura — A Diwali story
This happened in the Krita Yuga (Golden Age). Hiranyaksha, an asura, dived into the ocean. To rescue earth, Lord Vishnu assumed the form of a wild boar, Varaaha, and went after the asura.
Varaaha overpowered Hiranyaksha in the duel that he fought under the water, and restored earth to its original position in the universe. Varaaha achieved this magnificent feat with apparent ease, and the only sign of his exertion was a drop of sweat, which fell on the ground.
A fully grown young warrior arose from this drop of Lord Varaaha’s sweat. His name was Naraka. Bhoodevi or Mother Earth took a liking to this son of hers and asked Lord Varaaha that her son should become invincible.

The story of Akenya, the family cow.

Thread... Image
A long time ago in the village of Buchenya, there lived a man and his wife.

The man was called Omuchenya, from the abachenya clan while his wife was called Nabakolwe from the abakolwe clan.

They lived in a simple mud hut in their farm.

#StoryTime Image
They met in a traditional harvest ceremony where their love simmered like food boiling in an African pot.

Their families and clans approved of their marriage and gave them the green light to get married.

Gajendra Mokhsa - A Story to learn from the BHAGWAD PURAANA.
Bhagwad Puraana, tells about a beautiful Mountain called TRIKUTA. It had three peaks of Iron, Silver and Gold. It was massive at base and majestic at height.

On the foothills of TRIKUTA, lived a herd of Elephants under the strong leadership of Elephant King GAJENDRA.
He ruled the hills for many decades. He was so strong that when he walked he would sway his Trunk to destroy everything that came his way.

He enjoyed his strength so much that he was oblivious to the terror he struck in the hearts of other animals.

I was at a theatre watching a film. Loved the film and we (me and elder bro) left in an auto. Aged Auto driver took us in and a ride of 11 kms and lots of learning began.
He started to ask us about the film. We told him about it. He told many things about Bengaluru and the Kannada Film craze here. However, conversation took a interesting turn, when I asked him his age.
Not to offend him, I called him Tatha (Grandpa). Because he was old and had white hair. His hands bore skin with many wrinkles of old age and years of life experience.

He said, one should not ask about age and one should not tell his age too.

Today lets learn something about "Baherji Naik" (Head of Intelligence Department of Chattapati Shivaji Maharajs Army). In Marathi his department was called as "Guptaher Khaata", which loosely translates to Intelligence Department.
Bahirji Naik was a PILLAR of a strong intelligence network (possibly the best of that time) working for Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Around 3000 Soldiers (Mavlas) worked in this Intelligence unit and Bahirji Naik was head of all.
Without the contribution of this "Guptaher KHaata", the long standing dream of SWARAJYA would not have been achieved. Bahirji Naik, was the foundation of every war strategy prepared by Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.

Once long ago there were three friends. They were very poor and lived and a very small village. The land in the village was infertile and there was no work to do. One day these friends decided to go to a big city and find some work there.
So, one early morning they packed their bags and left for the city. They had no money, so they decided to walk to the city. It was the month of May when the summer is at its peak in India.
By noon all their water and food were finished so they decided to take a short break and rest under the shadow of a tree in the nearby forest. They were hungry and thirsty but there was no food or water left.

I cannot wrap my head around the sheer scale of anything TATA! We got access to the beta version of the TataNeu Super App. Anand & I have been waiting to buy a new TV for ages. Still running on one we picked up at Frys or BestBuy in Portland or something 12 yrs ago. #storytime
Full disclosure. I work with them professionally. But this is the frustrated 'am I ever going to care enough to buy a TV' customer tweeting. Downloaded the app, entered phone # What happened next was MAGIC. Something all of us read in data threads & inspiring keynotes everywhere
... but here it was, just like that, in an app

Chose the TV we wanted. It pulled up our rewards from our Taj stays, our Big Basket buys, our TataCliq purchases & boom ... close to 10K in discount instantly. We didn't do a damn thing. Just like that.

Google — a money-losing business — until it borrowed and reimagined an idea from its biggest rival.

👇An interesting thread 🧵
2/ The idea that made Google the world’s greatest search engine was all Page & Brin.

But the idea that turned Google into the world’s greatest company wasn’t theirs originally.

It was borrowed, with some key changes from their biggest early rival
3/ In their seminal 1998 academic paper introducing the idea of Google, Page and Brin criticized advertising-funded search engines as

“inherently biased towards the advertisers and away from the needs of consumers.”

Once in a formal meeting in heaven organized by Lord Indra; Rishi Durwasa was participating. Whilst everyone was engrossed and immersed in an intense brainstorming; Punjiksthali; a celestial nymph was unconsciously moving to-and-fro between the meeting.
Rishi Durvasa, renowned for his anger, warned her by asking her not to do so, however, Punjiksthali, simply ignored his request and continued with her movement, enraging the saint.
Durvasa cursed her, stating - "You have been acting like a monkey, hopping from here to there just like a mischievous monkey; better become one yourself."
