Virutes of War -- Elephant Splat

Morning Everyone,

       Done with graduation exams for this season this very moment!! Gonna enjoy the next few days reading a book or two!! 

       The other day, I was reading a book Virtues of War by  STEVEN PRESSFIELD. The book describes life of Alexander The Great who conquered the entire world.  Here is a small excerpt from the book:

Situation: Alexanders army are camped outside kingdom of King Porus and are planning a campaign.


Elephant Splat
Elephant Splat
The sergeant called Gunnysack has been sent with one of the scouting parties across the river. He comes back with a great dried elephant splat—putty-colored, two feet high, big around as a bathtub. We have all seen the droppings of work elephants. But this, of a beast of war, is of another scale entirely. It creates a sensation in camp. Everyone has to see it. And all must speculate on the size of the creature that dropped it.

"By the gods," declares Gunnysack, "if this monster craps on you, you're a dead onion!"


     Man, this is wonderful. Looks like I can scare the shit out of an Huge but Idle army just by showing them some Elephant Splat *though they are all brave warriors who conquered the world as they know it*!! Ha Ha Ha!!!

with warm regards
Abhishek Boinapalli
