In the childhood, we all would have heard the story of the frog and the princess where a frog turns into prince when it was kissed by a princess. Just to read back the story once again, I searched for the story on web and was surprised to know that there were quite a few variants of basically two “froggy” stories (The Frog Prince and The Frog Princess).
As I have matured (nerded) over the years, I have started feeling that this story must have been written by a nerd. If not, it needs to re-written by a nerd as the story ‘The Nerd and The Princess’ would be very apt in the modern settings. I think he was metaphorically raising the hopes of all the nerds living in that era. I think he wanted to convey the message to all the nerds in his era that don’t lose hope even if you look as ugly as a frog, you have a chance to find a beautiful princess who can be tricked into kissing you and then you can live happily ever after.
PS: Here’s your bedtime story The ‘Frog’ and the Princess 😉
