Delhi: A little known industry body called the “Software Engineers Association of India”, comprised mostly of disgruntled software engineers, has bestowed a ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ upon the outgoing Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh.
Dr. Singh, most popularly known for doing and speaking nothing during his ten years of Prime Ministership, won the award for exactly that- doing and speaking nothing.
“We wanted to honour someone who had done zilch and managed to keep his job for ten years,” Tadapit Kumar, President of the association said.
“Dr. Singh is a role model for anyone who aspires to join the corporate world. Basically, if you do nothing, make no noise and hide under your cubicle desk for a decade, people will forget you exist, all the work will get done without you and you will still keep getting your salary. It is the best way to make money!”
“We tried to order some other IT company CEOs like my current boss too,” Tadapit added, “but he refused to accept the award.”
