Excerpt from Azim Premji's speech

This is a story of a poor
Scottish farmer whose name was Fleming. One day, while
trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry
for help coming from a nearby dog. He dropped his
tools and ran to the dog. There, mired to his waist in
black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and
struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the
boy from what could have been a slow and terrifying
death. The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the
Scotsman's sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed
nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the
father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved. "I want to
repay you, "said the nobleman." Yes," the farmer
replied proudly. "I'll make you a deal. Let me take
your son and give him a good education. If he's
anything like his father, he'll grow to a man you can
be proud of
you." And that he did. In time, Farmer Fleming's son
graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in
London, and went on to become known through- out the
world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the
discoverer of Penicillin. Years afterward, the
nobleman's son was stricken with pneumonia. What saved
him? Penicillin. This is not the end. The obleman's
son also made a great contribution to society. For the
nobleman was non other than Lord Randolph Churchill.
and his son's name was Winston Churchill. Let us use
all our talent, competence and energy for creating
peace and happiness for the nation."

Oh how sweet

Unfortunately Mr. Premji forgot to check for the validity of the facts before stating them.

There are various versions of the story floating on the net
1. Alexander saves Winston.
2. Alexander saves Churchill dog.
3. Alexander's father saves Winston.

Take your pick, feel good about that story. No harm in doing that.

I hate you, man! I had almost got inspired!

Anyways... like chirag said, it's the message that's important. Consider this like a 'Chicken Soup' story. And get inspired.
