Do we need a lesson in humility?

In February 2005, 17 year old Saurabh Singh topped in NASA’s International Scientist Discovery exam. The exam was so hard that it was big news in many newspapers. But it turned out to be a fraud. But the story kept getting bigger and bigger with newspapers reporting that the Indian president had taken the exam in 1960 and ‘finished seventh’ while astronaut Kalpana Chawla had ‘stood 21st in 1988’.

    I think this could have started off really innocently. Maybe he liked a girl; and to impress her, maybe he told his friends to spread a rumor in the area that he won some big exam; then the thing caught on… 🙂

    Makes for a good movie story. 🙂
