Snippets

Ghaziabad. In an unprecedented news, an engineering college kid has successfully managed to solve the Rubik’s Cube and in an even more unprecedented news, he, as a result of this, has been forgiven by his family for not clearing the IIT-JEE.

The kid concerned, Manoj Kumar, who was always bashed like Rahul Gandhi on internet by his family members, was suddenly looking like Sanjay Jha after Congress got some seats in Bihar. Our reporter thought not to ask any questions as such situation is reported to be risky by experts.

Rubik's Cube
The big success

His mother, however decided to talk to us. She said, “I feel so proud today. Earlier I used to be so jealous of our neighbor Ghanysham Modi ji whose son scored AIR 41, but that’s all mater of past as the latest news is Manoj solving the the Rubik’s cube puzzle. Unke bete ko to cube ki ek side bhi karni nahin aati aur mere bete ne 6 ke 6 kar diye! Hai rabba!”

When this reporter tried to explain that solving the cube is not solving 6 sides but actually solving 3 layers, she cut him short to feed sweets to Modi ji who always came to distribute sweets every time his son completed a semester in the IIT.

Earlier Manoj used to be reminded of Modi ji’s son more frequently than media reminds citizens about growing intolerance, but now everyone is talking about Manoj solving the cube.

Manoj’s parents have now allowed him to complete his engineering course without worrying, but experts say that Manoj’s happiness could be cut short if Modi ji’s son gets a good job or gets married in a good family.

When contacted by Faking News, Modi ji downplayed Manoj’s achievement and claimed that his son can solve much more complex problems. He then claimed that Manoj had cheated by learning algorithms downloaded from internet and that his success was manufactured not natural.

The story of Manoj meanwhile has become a motivation to the 1 million odd who attempt to solve the cube and the 100 million odd who attempt the IIT-JEE (JEE-Mains which it is called now).
