Mountain View/ Hyderabad: In a major embarrassment to search giant Google and community encyclopedia website Wikipedia, their servers finally crashed following two days of heavy traffic from India. As soon as news of some Kailash Satyarthi getting Nobel peace prize with Malala Yousufzai broke, millions of Indians flocked to these search engines to know who he really is. According to our sources in Google, this extraordinary heavy traffic continued for two continuous days, before their servers eventually gave in.
At the time of writing this news piece, Indian netizens were unable to use both of these search engines. There is no words from either Google or Wikipedia on when this outage will be fixed.
“What’s our fault? We never heard his name! All our media shows these days is Big Boss gossips, comedy show clips, aliens drinking cow milk, cleavage shows and ‘live speeches’ of Modiji everyday. I didn’t want to be left behind in updating my Facebook status to congratulating India and Kailash Kher (sic) making us proud.”, a concerned netizen candidly told Teekhi Mirchi.
“He may have won more than a dozen prestigious international awards, but for Indians he was completely alien. We never had such a search query from India before and were never prepared for this kind of overwhelming demand. We’re working on an algorithm that will anticipate such search influx from India in future and allocate thousands of dedicated servers to process those specific queries.”, Google CEO Larry Page explained his proposed preventive measures to Teekhi Mirchi.
Indian TV journalists were mostly seen in panic mode, as they had no source to find any information on Kailash Satyarthi. Many of them tried searching for his details in their own data bank and even earlier videos, but to no avail. Clueless on India’s new-found hero, fear gripped among journalists when Modiji decided to meet Kailash Satyarthi to
take credit of his nobel prize congratulate him.
“We’ll focus on Modiji’s face only…our viewers would never see that Kailash guy…whoever he is. This way we can get away without telling anything about him.”, a well known TV journalist Parul Kamal added with a sigh of relief.
“Maybe, he was a wrong choice for this prestigious award…No matter whatever good work you’ve done, what purpose a prize holds if nobody knows you in your country? In future, we’ll keep that factor in mind while shortlisting recipients.”, a member of the Nobel Prize selection committee told Teekhi Mirchi on condition of anonymity.
