The Genius Sickle Hair

The Genius Sickle Hair

2 mins 51 2 mins 51

Once upon a time, long ago, there was an old man named Sucklu. He was named like that because his hair looked like a sickle. He was always made fun of and was called “Sick Sickleyo”. Regardless of this, he was a very kind old man. He was also wise and intelligent. He used to work in his workshop, where he would make inventions. In fact, he actually made “revolutionary inventions” which were actually “invented” years later! He made a telescope, a plane similar to that of the Wright Brothers, and even more surprising- he had a prototype for a steam engine! These were all done in complete secrecy, well, until his death. After his death, the village he lived in was raided and looted- and every house except his was burnt. The raiders had heard stories of this weird man, so they spared his house. Instead of burning it, they went inside the house to investigate what was inside. They found the blueprints of his inventions. Then they presented the blueprints to their top tier “national scientists”. They told the scientists to make an exact copy of his inventions, and so they did! Well, it didn’t go so well! Nobody could remake his inventions! So they stored the blueprints. Eventually, over a period of time, these blueprints were lost. However, one blueprint was found, on a trading port. This blueprint was taken to Florence, in Italy! From here, they took the blueprint to Galileo Galilei, where he could wonderfully remake the telescope. The “telescope” which was definitely NOT invented in Italy, became the pride of Italy. Eventually, the other two blueprints too shipped away in trading, and they too were wonderfully remade. Thus, the wonderful inventions of Sucklu were all in vain.
