      LAN, LAN ago, in the land of I/O-dhya, there ruled a  king  named
  DOS-rat.  Three  queens  had  he - CONSOLE-ya, CHECKSUM-itra and  CIE/CAE
  (Kaikeyi).  However,  he  had no line drivers - i.e. no one to perpetuate
  his  line.  In  sheer  desperation,  he performed a great sacrifice after
  which his queens gave birth to four sons - RAM, LSIman, BUG-rat and
      RAM was a microchip off the old block - he had  an excellent
  memory,  he logged in quickly and semi-conducted himself in a manner fit
  a king.  His brothers,   however,  were  only  perpheralI  ICs; everytime
  RAM addressed them, they said, "I-C".  Once when RAM was  only  sixteen
  years  old,  the great sage Vish-WAN-mitra sought his help to fight some
  DAEMONs   who   persistently   RAIDed   his hermitage.   After  a  brief
  collision, RAM routed them so easily that he came to  be  called  DAEMON
      RAM then proceeded  to  Media,  where  he  married Pricess  C+ta.
  C+ta's  sisters, who were not her blood  sisters  and  hence  called
  TRAN-sisters, married  RAM's ICs. This ceremony came to be known as  TTL.
  On  the  way  back  to  I/O-dhya,   the entourage  met  Parasu-ROM  (or
  P-ROM  as  he was better known), the scourge of the kshatriyas.  Taking up
  the P-ROM challenge, RAM aimed an  arrow at  him; he threatened to take
  P-ROM's powers of locomotion, thereby converting  him  to  Static RAM.
  P-ROM  humbly  withdrew  and the procession reached I/O-dhya.
              Twelve years passed and DOS-rat decided  to  crown
              RAM  as  his  successor.  However, CIE/CAE, at the
              instigation of her BIOSed maid MANtharai(a  real 
              insisted  that her son Bug-rat be crowned king and that RAM
  be banished to the  FOR(;;)est  for  fourteen years.  At  this  cruel  and
  unexpected demAND, a surge  passed  thru  DOS-rat  and  he   CRASHED,
      RAM agreed to go to FOR(;;)est and C+ta insisted to go with  him.
  She  said  that  at  the  time  of her marriage, her father had advised her
  to follow the footsteps of her husband like a shadow, hence, she came to be
  called SHADOW-RAM.
              LSI-man was  also  resolved  on  accompanying  his
              brother as a SLAVE LSI.  Unable to bear separation, 
  DOS-rat died,
              setting  the  precedent  that  no   system   could function
  in the absence of RAM.  The forest was the dwelling  of  SPARC-nakha,  the
  sister  of  RAW-van,  King of LAN-ka. Attracted by RAM's stature, she
  proposed that he marry her. RAM routed her to LSI-man, who also politely
  declined.  Perceiving C+ta to  be  the  source  code  of  her distress, she
  hastened to kill her.
              At this stage LSI-man executed the Memory resident
              code  and  converted  SPARC-naak to SPARC-no-naak. He 
  TRUNCATED her nose.
              Weeping, SPARC-no-naak fled to LAN-ka, where  RAW-van, moved
  by sisters plight, approached his uncle MAR-icha.
      Ignoring MAR-icha's compilation  warnings  not  to RISC  SPARC-ing
  a  war  with  RAM, he insisted on going ahead.   Accordingly,  MAR-icha
  transformed himself  into the form of golden sTAG and drew RAM deep into
      Finally, tired of chase, RAM shot the  deer,  who, with  his  last
  breath, cried out desperately for LSI-man in RAM's voice.  Fooled  by  this
  Virtual RAM cry, C+ta urged LSI-man to his brothers aid.  Catching the
  opportunity,  RAW-van  delinked  C+ta from her library and changed her root
  directory to LAN-ka by BROADCASTING her over sky.
              RAM  and  LSI-man  started  FINDing for the missing
              i-node,  c+ta  all   over  the  forest.  They  made
              friendship with  the  forest admin SU-greev and his
              powerful co-processor ha-NEUMAN.
              ha-NEUMAN  was  a legendary  figure. He had a swollen 
  cheek             ARCHITECTURE. He was a child
                     prodigy  and   came up with newer methedologies and
      techniques which inspired many others.In particular his RAM mantra
  technique became extremely popular for generations.
              SU-greev  agreed to  help RAM but first wanted help
              from  RAM  to   delete   his   own root node VAALI.( 
              SU-greev's  intention was  obvious. He wanted to be the
  only  admin  around  &  wanted to grab all the consulting jobs in the
      RAM fought with VALLI and  surprised him using some un-documented
  features.VALLI cried foul and started complaining to  the justice
  department saying that it was not a fair fight.RAM then convinced everyone
  using his trademark MICRO SOFT WORDs coupled with a few FREE vedic
  goodies.Though some of the onlookers such as ORACLE (seer)and pancha bhutas
  such as SUN, disagreed with RAM's micro soft touch,they all shut their
  mouths  fearing  RAM's  reach among the user community.
      SU-greev was happy with the outcome and ordered his programmers  to
  use powerful 'search' techniques to find the missing c+ta. His programmers
  searched all around  the  INTER-NETworked  forests. Some of them shouted
  'YAA-HOO'  but  ended up  with 'not found' messages.  Several  other search
  techniques proved useless.
      ha-NEUMAN  using  a  radically  different  paradigm devised a RISKy
  technology and used it to cross the seas  at  astonishing  clock  speeds.
  the way he bumped with a few satellite signals but was able to avoid
  deflections due to his own high strength.  As  soon  as  ha-NEUMAN  reached
  LAN-ka, he had to collide   with   its firewall  called  LAN-ki.  The
  firewall made disperate  attempts to stop ha-NEUMAN entering  into  its
  internal  web,  but  the great ha-NEUMAN   detected   a   loop  hole  in
  LAN-ki's firewall.  Using  micro code, he broke the security and entered
      After doing some local search, ha-NEUMAN found C+ta weeping  under
  the  weight  of  a  TREE structure.  ha-NEUMAN used a unique key-id  (ring)
  to  identify himself to C+ta.  After  decrypting  the  key, C+ta believed
  him  and  asked him to send a STATUS_OK message to RAM through RING
      Meanwhile  all  the raakshasa BUGS around C+ta tied ha-NEUMAN   and
  tried  to  terminate   him  using pyro-techniques.  But  ha-NEUMAN  managed
  to spread chaos  among  the  raakshasas by SPAMMING the fire using some
      Several  raakshasa programmers were later called to restore   the
  operational  stability  in  LAN-ka.  ha-NEUMAN happily escaped LAN-ka again
  and conveyed all the STATUS messages to RAM and SU-greev.
              RAM  felt  happy  with  ha-NEUMAN's  methedology of
              execution  and  embarked  on  a  project code named
              EXPLORER to delete the netESCAPING RAW-wan. He even      
              created a bridge and GATEWAY to acess LAN-ka network
      In  the  mean  time,  signs were apparent in LAN-ka about  the
  imminent  danger  from  RAM's  project EXPLORER, but RAW-wan refused to
                     Sensing  disaster,  his  own   sub-program   called
                     vibhee-SHUN,   executed   a 'GO TO'   statement and
      branched  out to RAM's camp. RAW-wan still insisted on taking the
  all powerful RAM head-on.  He decided to use the boons given to him by SUN,
  sHIVa etc.and prepared  for  the  battle  on a  remote  island on LAN-ka
  called JAVA.
      He thought that his presence in  JAVA will give him victory over
      RAM and his entourage made small and buggy progress in  the
  begining  but  the  world community on the whole started watching them with
  awe.  In the battle on JAVA island, it appeared initially that RAM had no
  In  fact  one of  the  RAW-wan's  SUN  indrajIT(son) 
              killed  RAM & LSI-man with  a powerful brahma-astra called
  JAVA-BEAN.  It appeared for a while that the world  has  seen the end of
  RAM's MICRO SOFT touch.  But ha-NEUMAN resorted  to  some
  from HILL GATES and  concocted  a  potion  using  some  herbs. 
      powerful  HERBAL-COMPUTER  aided him in making this potion which
  restarted RAM and LSI-man.
              Appearing,  reluctant  RAM  used  the  source  code
              secrets  of  RAW-wan given by  vibhee-SHUN and once
              and  for  all wiped  out RAW-wan's presense  on the
              earth. Before that he even SCHEDULED RAW-wan to come 
  next               day when all his resources were locked up bu RAM's virus
                          weapons  He  proved  again  that even the  so 
      invincible  RAW-wan  cannot be  netESCAPED from his power.
      After the battle, RAM spreaded his MICRO SOFT WORKS and  other  user
  friendly  programs  to  all users across  the  world  and  every  one
  happily thereafter.
