The gate is opened..!

Why the gate is not opened? It is only 20 minutes left!!

He bent his fingers restlessly. 

The clock was so lazy. His heart was over-clocking. Dripping sweat!


“Uncle, are you ok?”The little pretty girl was staring at him. 

“Am….i am…..oo k…”

“You are sweating Uncle! Don’t be tensed!”

“Am….i am…..oo k…”
Close your eyes and look at that beautiful sky”

“Wha…..t…? Close the eyes…? and look at the beauty of the sky…? that too inside the airport….?”He could not resist airing his valid doubt!


“Granny used to tell me whenever I feel sad…That is what I do. It works!”

“m…” He just did respond!


Actually, uncle, if you close your eyes..you can see anything right?”

He looked at her innocence!
“Yes, Granny!”

He could reply so lightly and it lightened her already bright pebbly eyes…!He obliged Granny’s advice!


He closed his eyes!

…Pinky’s nose and hands are attached with narrow white tubes; Life tubes! The colorful display was blinking above her head. Yes, blinking fast! Pinky looks so white in that white hospital dress and bedsheets! No one around?!

“Aravind, I am there, Don’t worry..!” Diya!  Yes, she cannot leave Pinky.Diya will be with her always…around; Life holding strength!!

He could touch Pinky’s tired fingers…He sat near her!She is sleeping, yet singing her favorite rhyme!

He looked at her nose again….then looked up…wow, the sky is so beautiful….deep and infinite! Sparkling Diya, among the stars….caressing Pinky!!
Sweat disappeared; clock and heart running normally.

He was not sleeping, but he fled!


“Uncle, the gate is opened! Let’s go!”

“Oh, yeah, the gate is opened!”

“Thank you, Granny…!”

He bowed to her!

She smiled, waved her hands, and ran towards her Granny!
The flight was ready to take everyone to the destination!

Cutlets and a Tea!

She was so excited, surprised and so happy to see the lovely nest on the lamp shade at her balcony. That too with 3 cute little eggs!

The day used to be so boring, once he leaves to office. New place, new people and new chapter in life. Flying away from home was not easy, but leaving him alone was tougher!

Now the day is like a gripping suspense drama! Because the eggs are 3 cute little babies now!! Mom is so caring and at times she doesn’t care me at all….

She became more pleasant and engaged. She felt the nature, home, mom and…!

Phone!

Mom!

Papa left us!

She gazed the nest!

Feeding Babies..so carefully! It must be Papa bird!

She was eager to fly back! But he tied her. She felt stranded and crippled!

She gazed the nest through the days..! Babies, mama and papa all fled; the nest remained; empty with full of stories, dreams, hopes ..and…!

Door Bell!

Him…and Mom!

She hugged him, nibbled his ears, and whispered…”Yummy cutlets and a hot tea..ok?”

She also had a story…!

SheAlsoHadAStory

He always kept the conversation to the minimum with her or avoid it completely;though her ‘style’ attracted many for long conversations!

“Why girls do like this?” Somehow, Arun could not like her…, rather, her attire, boasting & bossy attitude! He likes girls to be simple; does not like over-makeup; does not like too many unwanted and big ornaments! (Don’t worry, he is from the old school!)

It was a new year eve! He could not avoid the get-together night; though he tried all possible excuses..!!! … and happened to sit across her, he felt really uncomfortable.

Chat, drink and food, went on….!
Now it’s family discussion.. It was her turn…!! Oh…need to listen her boasting now…
He cursed his decision to join the dinner!!. He was not keen and pretended to be too focused on food!

She started….
“Friends, i am from… and from a village…! When I was very small, we lost our father. I used to go with mom to do household work to earn & take care of our family of 4 kids.
…..
He traveled to her village with her…..!! He was still eating…”something!”
…….
“…and finally I got this job, sisters are settled, mom is happy & doing very well, stays along with me. Friends, you know, life is actually beautiful..like me!!!…” She paused.

He looked at her; saw her eyes welled up; then sparkled…!
Fireworks and skylanterns..; it was about to strike 12…;
Feet thumping music around!
He wished her softly…”Happy New Year Neena….”


 

The Bird Story!

sunrise_goodness

The bird was glowing vividly. As pretty as a sunrise!
Have you seen a sunrise recently? Yeah, the sunrise is equally pretty like twilight!
Hope you have experienced, recently, the beautiful setting sun, at a calm beach waving you with ‘silent’ waves!

He could not resist as the story shook him with its strong gist.
He travelled to beach;sat..;and immersed in the sandscape*. Waves were silent.
Lazily lied down and he gazed the setting sun.
“Oh, never before….”
He intensely grabbed a scoop of cool sand, then cradled to his chest…!
“Oh never before” …!

He slept. Nature continued to weave a nest for him.

He dreamt the bird story. He dreamt the vivid sunrise!
So be it!
He woke up into lucid horizon. The disappearing sun was appearing eloquently…!
He broke into ecstasy!
So be it!

The bird story ends.

Oh, it’s 9! He has to get ready to go to office!

Usual ending of a very usual story!


*sandscape: like landscape!


 

God’s Laugh (zeptory!)

God was on a spree of laugh, excitement, and cracking jokes through out….!
Some joined him….
Some learnt to smile seeing it!

Some people tried in vain; and; many did not see it; so many didn’t even know!

Flight just landed. People were all hurrying to grab their thingies!
The little boy was still on his spree!!


zeptory: A new word created for a very very small story, but sows a thought provoking seed!

Zepto means 10−21


35 or 34? (Another Tom & Jerry Story)

Beautiful temple; so tall and variety of different God statues in different costumes and postures carved at every feet. Every row, there were so many…

Hey Jerry, how many god statues are there?

Jerry just looked and replied at once: 35!

Wow, so fast…! Are you sure? Is it 34 or 35?

Tom really wanted to test Jerry! 😉

34. Immediately Jerry answered.

Papa looked at Tom and Jerry! Both were looking at each other and smiling…!

Papa was really confused 35 or 34?! He could count more than 50 and then stopped….

This time Tom and Jerry were looking at papa and laughing! They loudly asked 50 or 49??

Laugh out!

Accuracy is a relative myth for a happy life! Keep Smiling! 🙂

Smartphone.

smartphone

The truck was stinking and moving very slow. Daily, he wishes not to continue this job from tomorrow; in vain! He was so ardent to get a smartphone, and wants to use it smartly!
Though he could not answer what is really smartness with a smartphone, at least, he thought, with WhatsApp, earphone music make him smart.

So…counting days and money!

The day has come, faster than expected; thanks to his hard work and determination.

He became smart with the smartphone; the world became a rectangle!

After a few months, he stopped using his smartphone…

Broken rectangle became so wide and vast.., with a lot of experiences!
