Mom – What! Leave the laptop and go!

Jack – Mom I think I am hydrophobic

Mom – Get up before you become ‘Mammaphobic’!

And Archimedes!!!
Oh my God!
He just sat in the water and came out running naked! That’s the intensity of hydrophobia!! 😛 😛

I was lost to be found ( Part – 3 ) *Final*

Recap -(Part -2)

https://pristineshadow.wordpress.com/2015/04/23/i-was-lost-to-be-found-part-2/

Part – 3

I questioned Bloom about the fuss while we were traveling to his place.  He told me the whole story –
“We, Cyborgs and ‘Aliens’ were great friends. We were two entirely different races but had feelings for each other. There was no conflict in loving any member of opposite race. A cyborg was allowed to marry an alien and everything was a piece of cake. We were two species that were close to perfection, We did ‘Negligible mistakes’ and all of the above, we were genius creatures by mind and heart. But one unlucky day! the aliens came, and they started to dismantle every thing their eyes caught… Moreover, they killed their own people. So, many aliens shifted to our land. Even those who were in love, were found to have the ‘Non alien insanity’. Thousands of our army men died in ‘Questions’. It was too sudden and they were more astonished by the hate of their friends rather than modified weapons. Our world suffered both physically and mentally.

But the next month, a secret investigation by our detectives and a hard look by scientists on the genetic code of Aliens, revealed a very strange case! the genetic code was a bit change. Aliens never did mistakes, but somehow the change in genetic code occured and a very destructive protein ‘ Killanine’ started to form in the creatures. Aliens arrive every year in the eleventh month. We are building some weapons to protect ourself and scientists are trying to create safety techniques and if possible, to avoid the fight. ” 

I whispered ” Okay, so that is why the monk said I had to bring love and peace. ”

We reached at Bloom’s place. Day by day, he became a good friend, Bestowed me every thing that a human basically wanted. He gave me a room to live, he made delicious food and at times, we used to hangout. Once he requested me to go to the ‘Cylien Club’… I was not in a habit of going to clubs but he was tenacious about the idea and so I had to agree with him. I entered in and saw some aliens too dancing with the cyborgs. Bloom told that they were some of the aliens that shifted to their land during the war time… Soon he went to dance with his girlfriend – ‘Neuri’ and I sat back on the chair like a ‘Beginner’.As I was exploring the club, My eyes met with someone and oh!… who is she! She was coming closer, she was an alien and sat beside me, to the next chair. She looked descent with the tender touch of innocence flowing in her eyes. I never had a drink, but if I would ever take one, It would be like her eyes! And breaking the bubble she asked smiling,
” Who are you ”
” I am a human from another planet “, I answered
“I am Maliza  she said, we had a Hello! 
I was somewhat the ‘Shy guy’ here…

So she inquired again – “Would you have some wine?”
“Your eyes are none less” I said!

” Oh my God! What was that, how did that brim out of my mouth! ” I questioned myself inside.
Hearing me, she laughed and I don’t know what was about her!! but she attracted me to the simplicity she carried with her feet and the beauty she radiated just with a single smile!

She was humble, and my feeling for her was pure… My hobby was to write, and this poetic incident imparted a color of love to my life and writings… 🙂 We met twice or thrice in 2 weeks. We had some similar interests and she loved to go to ‘Search’. As we reached there, I saw that this was the same building on the footsteps of which, I came to this world. I was really happy to see this 🙂 She told that Search is the place where cyborgs and aliens worshiped their Gods. It was none less than magic and a beautiful proof of peace, the two races had before the war. The Gods of the two, stayed under the same building and  that cyborgs, even after such bloody fight! did not shatter it down… I wish such cyborgity  humanity existed in my world too. Such open hearted creatures that can neglect this war and keep the love that binds them tall against the walls of hate. I thanked Maliza for bringing my there.

The days were going good. Soon my writings were accepted by a publishing company. This was one of the biggest victories of my life! The indignation I carried in my nerves! when my parents said that I can not be a writer was finally able to find peace. I became a writer soon, and that too a famous one! 🙂 I used to thank bloom with gifts… One night, I asked him…”How can this war be stopped”
He told that we have to some way correct the genetic code. The alien security is Diamond tight! We can only break it when thousands of them will come on Plazer for the war. Only a month is left. They will come and destroy everything again, their hands would be reeking with the cyborg blood again, hells will rise! I stopped him… I stopped him from falling into this ‘Destruction Black hole’  I tried to get him to the light..that love is immense powerful and it will win!

On the bright side, my writings on peace and love started to publish. People came for autographs and then I realized that for a writer, 3 magical words are not only “I love you” But they are “You inspired me” too. 🙂 
I asked the cyborg scientists if the rules of Plazer are same on alien planet too. An alien also worked in their team, he told that the rules are exactly the same… I had a plan in mind, I knew that the aliens had more modern stuff for fighting. So, a very simple plan, that can work in an extraordinary way!

And finally came,

The Day Of War…

I remembered my parents, my home, Why I came here, The journey of my 11 months, The monk,That white serenity,  and of course – Maliza…
And I arrived the science headquarters to go. We decided to take bloom too.

 Soon, we reached their planet.

We took all the weapons according to the plans. We wore alien skin and faces to secure our identity. We were standing far away behind trees watching the scenario with our modified binoculars…  As scientists told me on Plazer that their security will be four sided and its calling out death if we as such entered in the security headquarters. We decided to take some vehicles, load them with our weapons and million of stones. We rushed the vehicles with mannequins sitting and written on them ” The Cyborg Weapons” to the gate of the security headquarters. As the vehicles burst against the gate, Aliens came out to see what has happened! Seeing the vehicles, they called the bomb squad to check, if the mannequin was not stuffed with bombs! But that was not our plan 😉
I knew aliens are intelligent enough. Only thing that can affect the modernity is the feeling that they have become GODS! Picking up our weapons, and seeing the stones… They laughed upon them! And the guns started to shoot the aliens by themselves! Weapons were loaded with nitroglycerin and TNTs  and and you probably know why! Guns are to shoot! not to laugh at 😀 But then the most strange thing happened that I could never imagine! The stones too hit the Aliens. I was like What! I thought that they will be childish,, like they laughed at the guns, they’ll laugh at the stones too. But no! this was different. I asked my fellow scientists about what was happening there… There mouths and eyes were wide open! They told that this was a concept they read in the book “Planet United” that, If a non living thing feels too bad for the other…They will unite to fight. We all saw a Concept becoming true for the first time! These worlds were magical! I got goosebumps hearing the scientists… 😀

 Much to our surprise! One more thing good for us that we couldn’t visualize, “What will happen if u shoot a stone?” Its a non living! It breaks but do not die! The no. of stones thus increased being in fragments, they kept the security totally busy. We entered from the back gate and scientists disarmed their systems for some time and reloaded the right protein in the genetic code!
Its a truth that some people died. But… Millions were saved!
As we came out, It rained and the droplets spoke the words of love and peace from my writings! :-). This was the most wonderful thing that happened to me in this journey!

We got our masks down. Aliens again loved us like they always did. They thanked us for bringing them back to their real existence. Love and peace was attained.

The first thing I did after reaching Plazer was thanking God. And as I was coming down the stairs, I saw a Plumeria… 🙂
I asked Plumeria if Maliza loved me… And I was really really brimming out again with the feelings of love and tears when It said – Yes! She does love me. I turned around and I saw Maliza was there…smilin, blushing!
I held her in my arms and We kissed.
I said that I love her and that I missed her a lot!
As, I saw down to see something in my pocket and saw up again… There was something behind Maliza… Oh no! Is that a mirror? It looks like me but he doesn’t have Maliza!
Oh crap! It was my Identical…
And again that white serenity, Thanking me… I was not reacting and in a matter of seconds, I was back to the same place from where I left. I had my hand In pocket. And I was full of tears 😦 It was a ring I brought for Maliza from my first salary as a writer… 😦  I tried to talk to the ring… But it didn’t reply!!
I wish I could spend some time more there. I went crying and I came back crying… But the tears had entirely different meaning.The journey was a moral that ended with nostalgia! My parents were anxious as I didn’t come back home from a day. They after sometime, caught me crying in the central park. I hugged them and cried a lot!

I think sometimes… Do the Plazer people miss me as I miss them…
How is Maliza…
I don’t know if I have to gaze at the sky to look them… Or I have to peep down the floor. Hence all I do is close my Eyes, miss Maliza, Bloom and Plazer… 🙂 I thank God! For making an introvert strong enough to survive on a foreign planet with foreign people, different rules and many other things… And most of all, for giving me the strength that I can become a writer! Imiss the world a lot! And for all that he gave… thank God too… 🙂 He gave me the second reason…

Really, I was lost… to be found!

(Alas! A fiction)

I was lost to be found (part -2)

Recap (part – 1)

Part -2 

The first thought that started to tramp around my mind was “Home’ I wanna Go back Home”. But I controlled myself that this strategy, The strategy of **’Crying alone in an unknown sphere’** is not gonna get me out of here.
This world was freaking me out! and this was not the only trouble. My introvert nature never allowed me to talk much in my own world, and here… all I could see was strange creatures, and I was figuring a way to somehow manage to talk to them, know where I am, How… and if someone knows possibly… why!!!

Alas! It wasn’t at all easy for me and so I decided to just move, see the buildings, read the signs and watch the vehicles in a hope that would learn to adapt. The faces were curious, they all were slim and they wore jeans, shorts and shirts like the fashion in our world. Even this small observation that was similar to my world lead to thank God! As my eyes were rolling down from face to legs, I noticed a very unusual thing! this was something everyone would be afraid of! The legs did not match the hands. This was completely uncertain. Suddenly, I heard a loud peep and a streamlined figure was giving a horn…it was reaching rapidly towards me, I hence, jumped on the footpath. the driver said ” Don’t stand in the middle of the road!” And this was a good sign 🙂 I came to know that countrymen know some English! :-D. The vehicles were streamlined , so much that they could pierce a pin! The planet was so clean that even a microscope had to investigate to find dust or a mark.

As I rambled further, I heard the voice of footsteps, it was increasing… I turned behind, and saw someone running behind me. He too had those different legs… I ran shrieking across the streets, the creatures were watching me with total black gigantic eyes! I had a good stamina and speed but I realized soon that they were faster! He jumped at me. With a thud, I fell on ground. Oh my god! In me, Adrenaline was rushing, I was radiating heat and he! He didn’t even get his nerves pinched! Just the normal fresh breath. I was trembling! He lend a hand and pulled me up. He asked if I am alright… I didn’t reply. As I just thought to run again, He held my hand and told me that he is a friend and will not hurt. I stopped and brushed off my clothes. Oops! I laughed at myself! I forgot There is no dust on this planet! I was missing earth! Its dirt, Its dust and probably everything… Interrupting my connection from this deep nostalgia he asked, ” Are you ready to go ? ”
Me ” Where”
He said ” I am ordered to to take you to to the monk.
I had no plan or idea and I was tired, I agreed with him.
He took me on his back! and ran like we run when a dog is following us at his rocket speed!
I sat back tight till we reached. I saw the building, he drove me at. It was built with decency! So simple and beautiful. It was my born trait! I think a lot!! In seconds, we both entered and I saw a monk meditating, He was a bit human in the sense that his arms matched with his feet. It was good too see a physical human! It gave me some strength to stay.
He opened his eyes and said –
” Welcome son. This is the ‘World of Cyborgs’ 
I was stunned! I read about them in my world. They were not reality but thought to be in the future.
The monk continued ” Most of the people you see around are too cyborg. They will not hurt you. Moreover, They want peace;
Bloom, give him the script” He gazed at me again with the sense of simplicity seeping through his eyes and said with a touch of grace – ” Son, You have to do this, and I believe U can! “ He smiled and stood up.
I didn’t know how to react. world stopped for me, but the words he said somehow inspired…
As I rose again with questions and went out to ask him something, he was not there. He had left.
I asked bloom if I could meet the monk again…He said that No one on this planet knows where the monks live. It was his good luck! that he could meet one.
I opened the script.
Big highlighted words spoke themselves…

*THE RULES OF PLAZER FOR FOREIGN MEMBERS*

  1. Everything in this world, might not move, but can speak. The things will only react when they would be used in a manner they are not made to… like, a stone is to make buildings and jewelery, not to be thrown at some one. If one will do this, the stone would instead hit himself!
  2. Plumeria, which is believed to be poisnous flower on many planets, is the sweetest flower of plazer, It never lies.

Plumeria-flowers

3. You are here for love and peace.

    4. As you are from another planet, you will only leave this planet and get back to your world, if you saw your Identical…

   5.  It doesn’t matter, to which planet do you belong. When you will get back, you will only be One day ahead…

These were the rules written on the script, they were less in number, but much more in meaning.
At least I came to know that one of my two purposes was to bring peace and love on this planet.
I also found a way to get back to my planet.

But the script left me with more questions…
What is the complication ? for that I had to bring peace…
Will every rule come into play?
Why do I matter so much to this world?
How soon will I see my home!! 😦 I miss it a lot.

I am just a leaf…

15213-dew-drop-on-the-leaf-1920x1080-photography-wallpaper

Dancing in the breeze,
Stuck to a tree,
Hello I am a leaf,
I am making the food, hence, in a hurry!

And there I see
A couple holding hands…
I have a magical ability to read the souls
And here the story expands!

But Oh! They seem to be upset…
One of the forlorn souls I have ever seen!
I peep into the soul and see a brown life!
That used to be once – so well and green…

Interrupts my attention,
A needle knitting with so grace,
A beautiful red sweater,
In arms of a wrinkled face…

With a stoop in her back,
And a stick lying beside,
Silver hair covering the head,
I see how to humans – the old age arrive

So rigorous and vigorously,
She knits the sweater
Wishing to gift her granddaughter a present,
To the completion, she get better and better

Photosynthesizing
Draws me to them, the same couple that started to cuddle! 😦
The red sweater reminded them of their daughter,
Who was grabbed by cancer and her life became a puzzle…

And soon the love of their life,
Their daughter expired the last week,
And hugging, they wiped out each other’s tears,
And both thought that they don’t have to make each other weak…

The pain in those restless eyes…
Has made me too sob today!

But this is life, It makes me cry
When the same breeze I dance in, in the form of storm,
take the precious lives!!!
And my fellows die…

I wish they could see that I too am crying with them…
I wish they could see that I feel the same,

But they will not see my tears…
All they can see is some dew!
And that too observe some interested eyes…
Because I matter only to a few!!!

They can’t notice the same agony in me,
And so I say in grief…
I am just a leaf,
I am just a leaf…

Inspiration knock at CCD

1369029158_Coffee-1444282

Its us who write stories,

But more often, I have seen stories writing us!

Some incidents pour life in you. This is one of those pieces…

A few days ago, I went to have a cup of coffee! at CCD (Cafe Coffee Day). I entered and rushed to the one red chair ‘n’ table, which just got evacuated by a smiling couple. I had no one in the chair at my table. The room was filled but I was having no one except the coffee. It was good, environment was fine, the waiter was serving well. Everybody seemed to have a charming glow. But my life, I never wanted to be that neutral and wow! I think that day…life heard me!

After sometime, When i was just about to go home and manage the papers, A shoulder in the way, collided with mine. I whispered “Sorry”. But he didn’t, He instead say “hey” . I turned around and saw a complete stranger…turning my fading face to a bit smiling, I said “Hello”.

He visualized something, taking his hand near his face and then, pointing at me with a surety – ” I have seen you and now I remember when…”
I asked, “have we met”
He requested to have one cup of coffee with me, I told him that I already had one, But he persisted and I had a positive reaction. He started to tell me a story about his goals and achievements., I mean they were good but the scene made no sense!!
You went to a coffee shop simply to have a cup of coffee and suddenly you are hearing achievements from a face, that claimed to have seen you and you know nothing about!

He told – “I wanted to be a football player always! but my dream was too big, in accordance with the family income and reach… At age of 11, I was playing the district level football match, I scored 5 goals in the semi-final and with the 17 goals in the tournament, I, as captain carried my team to the finale! ” Now some interest started to build up in me, I thought, leaving the boring mood swings that there must be a motive, this person is telling me about his life. As he was radiating words, The imagination was designing a scene in back of my head.
He continued – ” In the final, I got a serious injury when a player from opposite team struck me on the leg rather than football! I was asked to sit out in the finale!, It was assured to me that my leg is broken! But overcoming the fear and making up my mind again, I came back to play. Crowd understood my enthusiasm for this game…They cheered for me.

As I came back, the score was equal –  2-2
My fellows did a good job in the ground. But with me, It was terrible, I wasn’t able to sprint with the same speed, running became more difficult but I wanted to play, I needed to win. I knew that I might not get such chance in years again! In the dying seconds of the game, I received a pass, I wasn’t able to move,But I pushed myself forward, at expense of one foot, I dived and smashed a header, As my chin crushed against the ground, I saw the goalie missing the ball and that was the moment , when I realized that I have ceased the chance, we have won! My friends picked me up! And a person came from the stands, came down and tapped my back! I didn’t know who he was, Until in the speech he spoke that he was the national level coach in the field of football…

I was stunned! Saying that he has seen many players in the state and district level who lack that Giving Yourself for the game’ passion, he called me to the stage, and said that I had the thing that he was searching for. He offered me a chance to play in nationals…

I mean what would you say if your dreams ask you to turn into reality…”
I kept my coffee cup aside and said – “Of course Yes!”
And the same he did…he accepted that challenge years ago, He won the national 3 times and now he was about to play Olympics in June! A current in me lighted up! I congratulated him on his attainment…
Soon, coming back to the topic, Breaking into humor, I asked – ” Where was I in your story”
He pulled his chair and sat beside me. Keeping one hand on my shoulder he told with a smile “Brother, when I was about to join that tournament, I had no shoes, My mother pulling my ear was taking me back to home, And you came and gave me your new shoes! and inspired me not to lose so quick! I mean who does that!”

I remembered that incident… I murmured ” Oh My God! It was you!???” He laughed and said yes it indeed was.

We giggled and shared other memories, had a cup of ‘Cold’ coffee, because his story didn’t gave me any chance to bother about the temperature of coffee! 🙂 He insisted to see his game and wrote me the time for it on the napkin. I said “Yes for sure!”

He thanked again. We hugged and I was on my way… thinking, how magically! good deeds come back!
I got motivated by this village boy who climbed up to Olympics! This would not have been an easy job. His manoeuvre and hard work would have reached the limits! to do this. I was inspired by this young guy,

‘I was inspired because once,
I inspired someone’

I was lost to be found…(Part 1)

Yesterday i was going across the central park, i was jogging and breathing heavily… the lactic acid blocked the metabolism, but leaving the biology stuff behind, i was running, i was unable to feel my legs, the indignation i was having inside me was not letting me stop… i was running and till i came down to my knees in the park, i came to know that i had completed 13 rounds, i usually came everyday to jog 5 rounds. This was my limit… i couldn’t sprint more than that! I fell down on the ground…

  It was 4.30

And soon the tears i shed like a little kid mingled in the dew and sweat. I pulled myself up and it was not only against the ground…suddenly a flash light penetrated into my eye. I took two steps aside and there was no light, nothing! I again came to the same place, taking back two steps…

And again, that same light. I wiped the tears and then i just wanted to see the source, from where this light was coming… i moved in that particular path… the intensity increased as i moved towards the source and this was quite maddening but still the curiosity pulled me closer and closer, it was a red book, lying on the bench, i couldn’t see it completely, what was written on its cover, all i could see in that was some words written on one of the page, they were shining! My heart was pounding at fever pitch!

They were

                            “The world needs you”

As i touched the words, something queer happened…I was guzzled into the book. I didn’t even get the time to be wonder struck, or shriek out!

In the dream, I was told, by a white serenity, innocent face with an angelic smile that I had a purpose, in fact two…

As i woke up from a deep slumber, i discovered myself on the footsteps of a strange building,

I perceived the scenario like if I was dropped from sky, then i remembered i seriously was a kind of…

I just stood up, and the steps spoke ” Hello dear, how are you”… It was so so haunting! like you came somewhere you never have been, and What the hell! now even steps talk!!! I fell down from the steps, i reached the floor with my enlarged pupils! I was trembling and suddenly the floor asked – “are you fine!” I was stuck in this strange horrible place. I looked around and found creatures to be talking with non living things and with each other…

Would I get to know my two purposes???

Would I understand this world???

Would i make a win through this fuss…

Read in the next part.
