    Intellectuals Humour*

    Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, a great teacher, Philosopher and former President of India in whose honour Teachers' Day is celebrated , was an exceptionally witty man.

    The King of Greece came to India on a state visit.

    President Radhakrishnan welcomed him at Palam Airport.

    . “Your Majesty! You are the first King of Greece to come to India on invitation.

    The last time, Alexander the Great came uninvited.”

    *****
    Gandhiji: Don’t drink milk, which is the essence of beef.

    Radhakrishnan: “In that case we all are cannibals. For we drink our mother’s milk, which is the essence of human flesh.”
    *****

    Winston Churchill while having a cup of tea said to Dr. Radhakrishnan: *Sugar is the only English word where "s" is pronounced as "sh"*



    Dr. quipped: *"Are you sure?"*
    *****

    Once Winston Churchill hosted a State banquet in honor of Dr Radhakrishnan, who washed his hands before eating and used his hands for having the food while Churchill used spoons and fork.

    Churchill could not stop himself from advising Dr. Radhakrishnan to use spoon and fork saying that they were more hygienic.

    *Radhakrishnan replied, “Since nobody can use my hand to eat, my hand is more hygienic than any spoon or fork you use”*

    One more addition:
    I remember this:
    While dining some one made a remark on the Dr. as a brown man. Dr. said “God was toasting bread. He was not observant. It got burnt and was black. He gave it to the Africans. Next time he was watchful. He found the bread all white. He gave it to the Europeans. Third time, he was careful. He found it brown. He was happy and gave it to the Indians. “
