Mentor: No, but Raghavan told me about a live incident that took place about 35 years back, when he was in an astronomy class during his college days.
Mentee: Please go ahead.
Mentor: It seems the professor was explaining about constellations (groups of stars). He mentioned that each constellation was named after an object or animal or human that the constellation resembled. One student asked the professor why Virgo was named so and the professor replied, "Perhaps it resembles a virgin". (The Mentor keeps laughing unable to narrate the incident fully).
Mentee: Please tell me fully what happened.
Mentor (smilingly): The student told the class, "I can understand that the constellation can resemble a lady but how do you say that lady is a virgin?" The entire class burst into laughter for a long time.
Mentee: I think that student had a great sense of humour.
