HOPE

‘SHE’ woke up early in the morning and went to the balcony to get some fresh air. Opened the door and stepped out to see her neighbour being eaten by an ant army of each ant of the size of a car. They were Red ants. More ferocious and mighty.

The scenario freaked ‘SHE’ out. She ran inside her house but there were already more armies which were constructing the ant hill. ‘SHE’ tried to escape again using the window but the army Major tells the soldiers to catch her and throw her inside the ant hill being constructed. This would be the first sacrifice for the colony inside the house.

Every ant hill requires a sacrifice. Larger the sacrifice i.e, more intelligent the species being sacrificed more durable and stronger the hill will become and the next generation of ants will become more smarter. One soldiers pick her up a throws ‘SHE’ inside the ant hill.

‘Nooooooooo……’SHE’ shouts please don’t’ when she was thrown inside the ant hill. But instead of falling down she felt that she was going up in a very high speed. And she stops.

She realises that it wasn’t the interior of the Ant hill but a Spider web in a jungle like area surrounded with trees. And the army of huge Red ants were approaching towards her. And then a group of Tarantulas appears same size as of the ants. Large and scary. The fight begins for the sacrifice of ‘ SHE’.

The web was destroyed by the ants and the fight continued. ‘SHE’ falls on a fluffy cute greenish yellow caterpillar named ‘HOPE’ who promises to take her to the safe zone. She holds ‘HOPE’ tightly and he tells ‘SHE’ don’t worry I will save you.

After few moments the Tarantulas after defeating the Red ants realized that ‘SHE’ was gone. And they spread at all the directions to find her.

‘SHE’ and ‘HOPE’ realized that the Spiders were closer. ‘HOPE’ told ‘SHE’ to hold on and eventually he changed into a beautiful giant butterfly. See I told you to Hold on and you will be safe.

‘HOPE’ flew with his mighty strong wings and took ‘SHE’ to a safer place. And told “I will be always there for you whenever there is a difficulty”

‘SHE’ wakes up again in reality and goes to the balcony and sees a butterfly just like ‘HOPE’.

The Hollow Plane

‘Miri’ in her dream sees that a plane is coming close to balcony of her apartment in 5th floor and running parallel to the building. She all of a sudden gets up and reaches to the balcony.

To her surprise it was the balcony of the previous house she lived not the current one. Having the same orientation as the previous house where she lived few years back.

She could see that there were no glasses on the plane, faded paint and strangely no passenger or a Pilot.

She suddenly observes that there were no people at the entire society. Something attracts her to go towards the Plane. The plane thuds and the rear end opens.

She slowly goes inside the empty plane curiously. The rear and door closes all of a sudden with a long bang. But that did not make Miri scared or frightened but her curiosity increased more.

It was night outside the plane now but inside it glowed like led lights. It was difficult at first for Miri to adjust but finally she’s able to see through it. Two distorted shadows coming near her.

Just at a glance her mind was able to connect with them. She could see the past not only hers but everyones related to her. She could understand everything. Every single language in this planet. The language of animals and insects and language from the other Universe too.She says “I know you but we haven’t met before. Did we??”

“Yes! We have met before when you were just born. Our space ship accidentally landed nearby the Hospital where you and some more kids were born. The changes in the electromagnetic Field made you guys special in every sense but for the world nothing happened. It was just a simple lightening just like now for others expect the kids who were born at our previous arrival. We are trying to make contact with others too. Since you are at a very close distance from us you can utilize those powers” says the first shadow.

We need to you to make a decision. A really tough one? Before that you have to trust us that we aren’t wrong? Says the other one.

“Your Brain is fully activated now. We need you to know the actual past. And the thinking of the powerful people who shaped the future in every universe. Once we know that we will be able to re -write the History again with authentic and real details. Because you will be there to see and observe each minute details in a short span of time. Were the Heroes people who consider really did those heroic things or its just a narrative of the greedy politics to glorify them. ” Says the first Shadow .

“It’s your final call ‘Miri’. Either you have choose the present to leave the past or the past to correctly reshape our future. And we will always be with you every time you gather information so that your Brain works effectively” one of the Shadow tells her.

“I will go with you to rewrite and reverify our History” says Miri.

The plane then converts into a “Space ship” and goes for multiple time travels.

Parasitic Migration- Red Alert for Farmers

Desert Locusts have moved from the “Horn of Africa” after destroying the crops of Poor countries like Somalia they reached to the Gulf countries like Saudi Arabia,Yemen. Then moved to Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan.Finally they have moved to India in Rajasthan via Pakistan.

United Nations- Food and Agriculture Organisation department (FAO) warns India and Pakistan for Twin Invasion of Desert Locusts.

Desert Locusts have the following traits:

1. They can fly also 150 km per day. 2. They almost eat food equal to their own weight. 3. Change behaviour easily (greagarize). 4.Single swam almost consists of 250 billion locusts. 5. Life Span- 10 weeks approx. 6. Higher rate of Reproduction. 7. Very difficult to kill

How can the Desert Locusts be stopped to cause Agricultural damages?

According to the Agricultural ministries under Government of India , they can be stopped by spraying chemicals like Organophosphates by using Drones, Sprinkler etc while they halt at their journey for reproduction.

**Countries dependent on Agriculture will be impacted a lot. As the Desert Locusts eat the crops which could feed thousands of people in a single day. And that could lead to severe Food Shortage at the area attacked.

The main reason for the sudden rise in population of the Locust swarm is said to be the climate change. As the gulf regions and the Horn of Africa which is somewhat a desert area are experiencing cyclones which leads to humidity. Which supports the high increase in population of Locusts compared to the previous years.

Little Snail…🐌🐌

I saw my aunt hurting you……

I saw my aunt breaking you…..

I saw my aunt crushing you for being you…..

I saw my aunt breaking your shell to protect a leaf πŸ’”

I saw my aunt pouring salt on you so you could die……

I wished I could have helped you little being……

I wished that you weren’t a Snail….

Creepy crawlies….. phobia!!

Creepy crawlies go away , little girl wants to play

VermiphobiaπŸ™„

HelminthophobiaπŸ₯Ί

Scoleciphobia😣

What are these heavy duty words? The answer to that all of them have the same meaning…..fear…..fear of what? Fear of worms…..thier very sight is enough to give you goosebumps and anxiety.

Anxiety while seeing little harmless crawling creatures like worms, centipedes etc. I always have fear that worms might crawl on me whenever I go to the garden. Once I see any caterpillar nearby I am out of that place at that moment.

I always wondered why some people were scared of Cockroaches and lizards……they are angels compared to worm like creatures. If some gives me 5000 bucks and tell me to handle a caterpillar I would give the same person 6000 bucks more to take it away.

My Dear caterpillar, Why don’t you directly transform into a beautiful butterfly instead of eating everything around then meditating out of guilt inside a coccon and then achieve “moksha” and fly away with your beautiful wings. Being vegetarian you guys should look like hamsters cute and fluffy and not cute and scary at the same time. And some of you with spikes makes you scarier than your smoother brothers.

It’s just like a human baby transforming into an elephant then eating everything green available after getting tired of so much work he goes for hybernation and eventually when the time is right transform into a pixie.

I don’t have any personal grudges with you all but you make me nervous whenever I am buy to buy a cauliflower 😬 or broccoli. And then find you inside my food….while cleaning.

I would like to add one more being to this list. The almighty “Train insect” with hundreds of legs centipedes aka “kankhajura”. I have heard stories about you getting into people’s brain traveling via ears and laying eggs. Coz of your looks I named you train insect when I was a child.

**Note: Nature is beautiful, nourishing and scary at the same time. All the creatures play an important role in balancing mother earth. Things stated above are my childhood perspective.

With time the fear was gone although I do creep out sometime when I see them.
