    The connect is Polyglot.

    The script above is Written by Vadim Antonov which compiles in 4 languages

    The man in the pic-PV Narasimha Rao-who could speak 13 languages including 6 foreign languages.


  2. Phani

    The code says Happy New Year in 4 languages…
    The man could say Happy New Year in 13 languages(wow!)


  3. Both are polyglots!
    PVN-13 languages with fluency similar to that of natives
    and googling reveals that the program runs in 4 languages with same effect
    Beauty question I say!

    That script is a valid script in C, Fortran, csh, and sh and gives the same output (‘Happy New Year’) in all these 4 languages. Such scripts are called ‘polyglots’. And PV, of course was a famous polyglot well versed in more than a dozen languages.


  10. I think the connection is Polyglot.

    The GNU program in the first pic shows that Happy New year can be written in 4 languages with the same effect.
    Late P.V.Narasimha Rao could 13 Languages.

    Dunno if its correct…but thats all i could think of ;)
