Once upon a time, a boy lived with his mother in a small town. The boy hated his mother because she had only one eye. The boy was always embarrassed because of his mother. He did not want her to come to school or any other place, where she should be seen with him. He always wished that his mother would just disappear from this world.

One day, he finally asked his mother, “Mom, why don’t you have the other eye? You have only making me a laughing stock all around.” But the mother did not say anything. Few years later, the boy left his mother and came to the city to become a successful man. He started working, got married and had kids. He got busy and completely forgot about his one eyed mother.

One day, he received a letter regarding the school alumni reunion in the town. After attending the reunion, he went to visit his old house. There he saw his mother on the cold ground with a letter addressed to the boy. In the letter, she described how the boy, during his childhood, had met with an accident and lost his eye. And it was she who donated her eye to the boy. Then, all he could do was to cry in repentance for the person who loved him very much.

I was trying to decided how I could communicate with it. I smiled at it and gestured at it to come in. It came into the room and was staring at the things in the room. It traced its long slender finger on the things in my room and the pictures on the wall, leaving a fluorescent glow wherever it touched. I couldn’t conjour any way to communicate with it.

It kept looking around as if trying to find something. I offered a packet of biscuits, I had in my room. It understood the sign language, popped few biscuits in its mouth and his whole face began to flash into several colourful flashes of light. It vaguely gestured towards me. I thought it was in some kind of pain as it started making squeaky and strange sounds. Then it moved toward the window and its face broke into a smile. I looked out too and saw flashes of light in the sky. The alien started jumping up and down. The lights in the sky came nearer and nearer. I saw myself looking in a spaceship.

The alien rushed out through my window towards the spaceship. There was a loud deafening sound with which the spaceship took off. I didn’t want my friend to leave so fast and I jumped to get hold of one of the wheels of the spaceship, and there was a loud thud. My eyes opened and I found myself on floor. It was then, that I realised that it was all a dream.

It was really hot and humid last night. I slept with the windows open. Around 2:00 a.m. I heard a slight shuffling sound in my room. I slightly raised my head and in the moonlight, I got a faint glimpse of a man entering my room through the open window. He shown a torch on me. I pretended to be in a deep sleep but my heart was thundering. I was scared he would hear it beat. Convinced that I was asleep, he moved toward my cupboard. I gathered courage and decided I just couldn’t lie there doing nothing. My phone was on the bed, next to me. I stealthily gave a number of miss calls to my dad. My father was perturbed but knew something was amiss. He, along with my elder brother, came to my room. Hearing  the door open, the robber tried to dash and escape through the open window. As he ran, I stuck my leg out, and he tripped and fell face down hard on the floor. Immediately, the three of us literally pounced on him and overpowered him after some struggle. We tied him up and rang for the police. The night patrol police were nearby. They came and we handed over the robber to them.

My family was happy that I reacted to the scary situation boldly and did the right thing.

Answer.

Two friends were passing through a dense forest. They were almost reaching the area that was pre-decided that they would camp for the night. Suddenly, the stillness of the forest was broken by the painful bellow of a buck. It was a sound that distinctively told us that the animal was in a lot of pain. Cautiously, we approached the sound and was shocked to see a buck lying writhing in pain on the forest floor. Its horns were entangled in steel wires left behind by champers/ trekkers and every movement it made us causing the wires to tighten more around, its horns and now it was twisting about its neck. Seeing us approach, the buck panicked and struggled harder. We were confused and shocked  for a moment, but knew we had to react fast otherwise we would witness a poor animal strangle to death due to a major carelessness of humans like us. Harry sprung into action. He was a fire fighter but both of us didn’t have any experience in such a situation. We knew a kick from the buck could hurtle us in air and we could be seriously injured. Harry emptied the champing bag and took out the rope that was to secure our tent. We slowly threw the rope around it and nudged it and pushed it to lie on the ground. Surprisingly, the buck didn’t resist much, maybe it was tired with al the struggle and probably it knew we were its only hope of survival. Harry had a professional  swiss knife with him. He took out something that looked like a wire-cutter and slowly began to cut the thin wire from the horns while I patted the buck to relax it. Once or twice, it did try to resist but after almost 45 minutes of hard work, it got free from the wire. As soon as we moved away, the buck was on its legs. It took a moment and trotted away. After running about 50 metre, it turned back and looked at us as if to say a thank you and then it vanished into the dense forest.

Ravi had prepared very well for his English paper and he was confident of doing  well in it. But when he reached the examination centre, he found that it was the mathematics paper that day. He realised that he had made a mistake while referring to his date sheet.

Answer.

Ravi had prepared very well for his English paper and he was confident of dong well in it. But when he reached the examination centre, he found that it was the mathematics paper that day. He realised that he had made a mistake while referring to his datesheet. “How could this ever happen to me?”,said Ravi to himself. He was not sure if he wanted to burst out into tears or get angry with himself. He felt so ashamed of himself.

Mom would be upset and this would become an anecdote in the family which would be told on occasions, so that no one in the family would be too over-confident and overlook important things in life. Dad would be fuming with anger. He just couldn’t face anyone at home. He confided his blunder to Vasudha ma’am. She appeared to be shocked initially but sat him down and claimed him. She motivated him saying that he was good in subjects and had scored a centum in the pre-boards. Ma’am sat and revised with him all the formulas. The bell rang for the exam. Ravi went in a heavy heart, prayed as he had never prayed before. The invigilator gave the question paper to him and Ravi again said a word of prayer. He looked at the paper. Everything looked strange to him, he wanted to cry. He had a sinking feeling in him. He closed his eyes and he took multiple breaths. He took the question paper in his hands and looks at it. He read the questions slowly one at a time. He took his pen and started answering them one by one. Ravi found that he could answers the questions completely. Mathematics was his favourite subject and he could not bear to anything below a centum. He finished the paper 10 minutes before time. He revised all the questions and the solutions he had worked out. The paper was done and he walked out of the examination hall relieved, but his head hung in shame, thinking how careless he had been. Vasudha ma’am was waiting for him in the reception area. The  first thing she told him when she saw him was,”Ravi I knew you’d be able to solve the paper”. He was happy that his teacher had so much trust in him and understood his potential.

Mom and dad were shocked but only said,”Overconfident precedes carelessness”.

Answer.

It was a bright and perfect day to read a book and relax. The work in the office had been so challenging that I decided to make use of the wonderful bright spring morning. I pulled out the garden chair and sat under the shady banyan tree that stood in the corner of our yard.

Settling down in the chair, I started reading the fiction novel that I had been wanting to read for a long time. I was through with almost 20 pages, when I heard a loud thud, few meters away from me. I turned to my right and saw a dirty black bag. I stood up and looked out on to the street and saw a middle aged man pedalling his bicycle fast as if trying to get away. I called out to him, but he pedalled even faster. Seeing him go, caused panic in me and  turned back and looked at the stuffed, black bag. So many thoughts flashed through my mind. I called out to my parents, sensing the panic in my voice. They rushed out immediately and stopped short, when they saw the bag. I narrated what happened. Slowly, I realised that our yard was full of people. Our neighbours, passerby etc. all gathered around the bag, looking fearfully at it. Someone called the police and they reached within 15 minutes. They cordoned off the area, they too looked fearfully at the bag. Opinions were flying in the air,” It’s a bag with a bomb I’m sure.” “Strain your ears, you can definitely hear the clock ticking”. “Look at those wet patches. I’ m sure it’s a body chopped into pieces by a murderer and he disposed it in this manner.” . . . . . . . 

So many speculations and so many hypotheses made the seen tense.

Soon the bomb squad reached with sniffer dog. The police evacuated the area and two policemen ran the metal detector all around the bag. Not a beep was heard or lights flashed. The men from the squad lifted the bag and opened the zipper; the entire crowd was still as if not breathing. The police personnel opened the bag and held it up and turned it over-out and tumbled a whole lot of dirty old clothes. The crowd erupted into loud talks, laughter (of relief) and some were even angry as they had been disturbed from the schedule, just to see a bag full of dirty clothes. . . . . . .  . .

We always have a good laugh thinking of all the commotion over a bag of dirty clothes.

Tainy day—alone at home—lightning and thunder—lights go out—phone lines dead—knocking on the door

Answer.                                          HOME ALONE

It was a rainy day. It felt as if the heaven’s flood gates had opened and it was pouring without a stop. I was all alone at home. Mom, dad and my brother had gone for an appointment with the doctor. The appointment was prefixed at 7:00 p.m. They told me that they would be back latest by 9:00 p.m. I kept myself busy watching my favourite serials even though there were some evil scary thoughts playing behind in the back of my head. The peal of thunder and the flashes of lightning were scaring me, but I put up a brave front by turning the sound of the television high so as to drown the sound of thunder. The phone rang, it startled me, but I was glad to hear the comforting sound of my mom. She said the traffic on the road was heavy due to water logging in certain areas. “Latest by 9:30 p.m., we should be home”. My eyes kept glancing at the clock on the wall. It would take 30 minutes for them to reach home. I consoled myself.

All this fear and anxiety made me hungry. I grabbed a packet of chip and started munching on them. All of a sudden, I saw a flash of lightning. It was so bright, felt like it struck in our yard. It was followed by a ear-deafening peal of thunder. All the lights of the house went out. It was pitch dark both inside and outside the house. All I could see was the shadows of branches of Moringa tree on the curtain. I was really scared sitting in the pitch darkness. I gropped for the phone but it seemed dead. I  thought someone has knocking the door grew louder and persistant.

With shaky, thin voice I almost blurted out,”Who’s there?”. “Mihika open the door, it’s me Leela aunty “. Leela aunty’s sound felt like an angelic chorus. I ran to the door almost tripping over the chairs and falling down. I opened the door and flung myself at her. She hugged me tight and told me that mom had called her to check on me as the phone lines were dead. Seeing my disheveled plight and my tearful face, she took me over to her house, so that I could be there till my parents got home.
