“Forgiveness is meant for people who really deserve to be forgiven, people who realize their mistakes and act accordingly. Not for the people who would take the same path if given any chance and cry “I am sorry! I didn’t realized” and betray anyone for their personal benefits.
‘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’.
As a child most of us have been taught to respect our teachers. And all of us should do it too. But few teachers I have seen for real who were really mean, exploited children for their personal benefits like money and few more things.
Teaching is no doubt a respectable profession but that does not mean that the people who are involved will be good as a human being.
I guess when people grow up and start doing jobs most of the them remember at least some of their teachers either in a good aspect or bad aspect.
It was the month of April, I was late by 10 days to join school as I just came from my native. I was promoted to the second standard from first. I was in a school in Itangar, Arunachal Pradesh, India.
There was a surprise test that day. That too of the computer. Computer was almost new to Indian schools then. I missed my classes for almost a week. So, I didn’t have much idea about the usage.
So the test was really simple. It was just to type your name in the keyboard so it could be displayed on monitor. A really simple one. I was confident that I would do it easily.
Students passed by and then came my turn. I had difficulty searching the first alphabet of my name. Why??? It was a fu*£#@g ‘QWERTY’ board. I didn’t knew the concept of the alignment of a keyboard that it was randomly arranged at a specific manner. And I took more seconds to find the alphabet ‘S’. As I thought the sequence would be like A,B,C,D…..and so on.
All of a sudden my teacher got angry. He was in his mid 20s I guess. Tall with mustache. I do not remember his name though. May be it started from an ‘A’ or whatever.
He took a thin stick made up of iron. And all of a sudden he started hitting me at my Calf muscles. He hit me for 3-4 minutes I guess. It was painful but I didn’t cried one single drop. May be I was a freedom fighter in my previous life😂😂.I was about to but I didn’t. I always had a lot of self control and patience back then.
When I went back home I saw 3-4 thin lines at my Calf area. It was kind of visible. Exactly I don’t remember maybe it was my sister or my aunt “Mita pishi” who asked what happened to your legs and I exactly said it happened because of the room heater. Which had the covering with almost exact distance of the lines at my Calf area. It was the first lie……of my life. May be I was ashamed of my failure then. As I wasn’t able to perform such a simple test.After a long time I told them. They said I said have said about that.
Sometimes I think I should have complained about that. At least he would have been suspended from the school. Some teachers should have consience that students are not puppets at whom they would take out their mental frustrations. By badly hitting them. It’s not like I have never got any beating during my childhood but this was different. Teachers are the people who inspire children to become successful by their thoughts and teaching. And sometimes slight beating is ok.
Some memories gets imprinted on your mind just like the beating marks .
It would have been a great lesson if instead of hitting me “he would have taught me it’s fine and said I will teach you. Hardly it would have taken 2 minutes of his precious time”.
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 💔
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….
They destroyed everything!! They destroyed millions of planets in thousands of galaxies. Last it was “Hoag’s Object”. Then they came for us in “Milkyway”. One by one each of the planets were destroyed in each and every Solar system present in our galaxy. All of us supported life before but now all our inhabitants were killed because we sheltered them. Now it’s your turn says “Jupiter” to “Earth”.
“You need to get rid of Humans” else the end you will suffer the same destiny as us” says Mars to her. Our internal systems were changed when they planned to leave us but yours is the same.
“We need to take help of the Galaxy Engineers who created us and gave us powers. Now we are powerless only if we could communicate with them it might help us all not only ‘Earth’. The Humans adjusted my power so that only they could sustain on Earth.” Says Sun to all other planets.
“We don’t know where they are and how shall we communicate with the Galaxy Engineers. The communication system installed at our galaxy was destroyed millions of years ago ” says Saturn.
“Also the relay system installed inside us were inactivated by the Humans. Only the Galaxy Engineers could help us” – says Pluto. “Humans took all my resources and smuggled it everywhere around the universe and reduced my size to half” Pluto adds to the discussion.
“What shall I do brothers and sisters. We all were born together and lived happily before the invasion. Now I will also have the same fate like my little brother Pluto. We all are dying for them for no reason. They are extracting everything from me which were dead long back. Things they say like coals , diamond. Recently they tried to enter my core. And if they are able to do it, I will be over and destroyed forever and some they will go for some other planets making ours Solar system life less.” says Earth.
“When we were first made, the Galaxy Engineers told us that each of us planets will support different kind of species and life forms. I had the ‘Primas’ as intelligent as humans but they couldn’t sustain the attack. Only Earth help herself and us now till we are able to connect Galaxy Engineers.” Says Jupiter.
Venus further adds “I have a plan that might save us and her(Earth). But the present life will be destroyed.”
Curiosity of other planets increases as Venus starts to tell his Plans to others. ” You have a copy of yourself inside your core. Now you know what you have to do. But that would lead to the death of others already present”.
After thinking sometime the Earth says “I will do it!! We have suffured enough for others. Now it’s time for them”.
Earth slowly started to grow from the core again to make herself be born again. Same as the time when she was a newly born. The little earth start to expand herself, which led to the breaking of the Crust. Volcanoes blasted and magma spread like Rivers. Water turned hot and started to boil then turned into steam. Humans and other innocent creatures were observing a painful death and suffering. The Humans had no chance to counter the sudden action of the Earth. Lastly there was a huge blast which moved the older Crust, mantle and core as debris in space. At the end it was a new Earth with the same soul and the same memories. After sometime the Galaxy Engineers reached the Solar system and they told that they saw an unusual thing happening in the solar system.
“Since the Earth has already updated herself and saved herself we don’t have much work on her but she still needs an atmosphere. And we are going to reset you all again as before. So that this time all the planets will be able to sustain life again and communicate with us. And also the sun can adjust his powers for each and every planets at the system again.” says one of the Galaxy Engineer.
“As time goes by life flourishes again in all the planets of the Solar system.”

Hi!! My name is “Gamma”. We are three brothers named “Alpha”, “Beta” and “Gamma”. We were free willed and happy during our childhood days in Africa.
It is often said that happiness does not last long. Our parents died , basically killed by the militants in Mozambique.
We had to run away to save our lives. Finally we joined a refugee camp in nearby area which had protection from the millitans. It was surrounded by Army. They gave us food to eat and there were many like us who hadn’t eaten. We made friends with them with good bonding. We shared our old memories all night about escaping the horrible situation.
One fine day we were adopted by a rich man from Kenya whose wife recently died out of illness. He seemed like a nice man.
We were officially his Sons and he became our father without any blood relation. We were always told that blood relation is the strongest relation. But the friends we made who were like our brothers and would stand up for us any given day. The father who adopted us without worrying that we had no genetic relation with him.
Our life in Kenya was very peaceful. He took care good care of us with good education,food , clothing and a house to live.
When we were at out teenage our father would teach each of us a life lesson which he said he learnt from a great man abroad.
For “Alpha” it was “Do not see anything bad!!”.
For “Beta” it was “Do not listen anything bad!!”
And finally for me “It was don’t say anything bad!!”. We obeyed all his teachings without questioning him as he was the very same person who saved us and gave us everything a child would desire and also lead us to a successful future.
Few years passed by and it was time for us to apply his teachings in real life. One day I saw a person beaten by a mob for some reason. As I was thought don’t say anything wrong I wasn’t able to identify which side should be taken by me. I mean the person who was beaten badly could have committed some crime or the people hitting him badly were the wrong ones?? So I kept quiet and left that place without taking any side.
The very same day “Alpha” went to buy some groceries. He sees a person trafficking young girls and boys for slavery. It’s a bad thing right?? Alpha walks away pretending he did not saw anything.
Lastly it was Beta’s turn. A shopkeeper shouting at his domestic help for being five minutes late. Calling him obsence names and everything to break him down. So this too is a bad thing?? So Beta escapes from there as fast as possible.
That night there was an awkward silence between all of us. We shared all our thoughts that we did not stand up for the right just because of our fake ideals.
Next day we discussed with our father our observations. He said ” It was my duty to teach you all something valuable. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take your consciousness into consideration. Different situations require different actions. I am happy that you all have learnt the lesson by yourselves!!”
Heart sized of a peanut, three fingers at each hands just like a miniature Barbie doll. My first glance was enough for her to fall in love with me when she saw me online.
“Hi! My Name is Motu and I am a dark Brown Syrian Hamster”. Wonder why I am called that….I have never been to Syria. But it seems like a nice place with trees, tunnels and food.
My owner “Ajil” had me transferred to his friend in a small box with windows living nearby her place. After sometime she came and took me.
Leaving my old friends was difficult for me. As I have never seen the outside world. This was the first time I had seen what the world looks from outside. Seeing giants shouting “peep peep” at each other, the first thing came to my mind was ” Ham- shit” this sucks man. I just wanted to go home.
Once I was taken by her, she tried to keep me inside a cage with a couple . An albino lady with red eyes and her blonde husband. Man he got agitated by seeing me, we had a though fight not nothing. Why would I hit on his wifey who looked furious and angry as hell always in attacking mode that too with Red eyes.
As I was fluffier and cuter than the other two she and her friends named me “Motu” meaning “fluffy or fat”. Next day I was shifted to another cage. Thank goodness 🙏 no more fights. Her other friends Purvi, Prathama and Reema loved me a lot. Especially Reema kept on holding me.
You see I am a pure vegan. So I do have a lot of attitude 😂. My day starts with carrots then corriander leaves and ends with broccoli. See it’s “Not slimy but satisfying” against the rule of Timon – the Meerkat.
One day the lady in white was about to have babies so her husband “Golu” was transferred kept with me. Her kids didn’t make it. Felt sorry for her. After few days he was was shifted again with her.
One day I got a huge gift. It was a new house bigger than the previous one with slides and a bigger wheel. I was the king , it had everything big like me.
Few months passed by and I got old. Maybe my day was near to go somewhere dark a place more darker than the tunnels our ancestors made to same us from predators. Next morning I was still and not moving at all , I heard my human friend say to her other friend “I don’t see him moving, he seems to breathe but is isn’t moving… That’s unlikely of him!!”. The other friend says we shall take him to a vetenary doctor. After some time we visit her friend place. They felt sad too looking at me.
After a while I was taken to the vet. He said “a hamster”. He gave me something to drink, I wasn’t in the condition to drink. Then he inserted a sword inside me. Lastly a shock….he gave me like in movies. I jumped at once at moved actively. Finally “A Ray of Hope” at everyone’s eye I could see. The doctor fella said I will be fine. Take him after sometime, I will take care of him.
My Friend came after sometime to take me with her. I was playing well. And others were happy too.
I had a good one week with her and others. I remember hiding all my food inside the sofa and under the fridge and the work they had to do keep it back inside.
This time after a week I left for good. I had my last heartbeat. My soul was out of my old , cute and fluffy body. I was still at home and I could see others getting sad.
I was burried in a garden with flowers specifically dandelions with the HOPE of getting a better afterlife.
Trying to hide from something which can’t be seen by anyone is the most difficult part. 65 year old “Charu” living with her son, daughter in law and grandchildren in Pune, experienced the same.
Her son recently bought an old washing machine from a shop which deals with used electrical appliances at low rates. She was furious at her son for bringing a low grade old washing machine as they belonged from a well to do family with high standards of living.
She told her son to get rid of it because it degraded her image of a high class elite lady. Seeing his mother getting disappointed he agreed to rent it out to some other family or group of bachelor friends. As there is a huge demand for electrical home appliances at rent.
“I am gonna take a nap” says Charubala to her son and goes back to her room. The moment she closes her eyes her subcontious mind plays a trick and she sees her son bargaining with the seller for the washing machine he bought just now.
“Stop it Son…I already told you that I don’t want this junk at my place” she says. She is inaudible to him and also not visible. All of a sudden she hears a voice “take me with you dear , why do you hate me so much?”. She is still not able to identify where the voice is coming from. Transiting from the current subconscious level to another point …..all she sees is darkness and multiple galaxies,stars,planets and eventually everything is quiet and calm in her mind.
She hears the voice again “why do you hate me so much?”. At that moment she realises the same old washing machine talking to her. She screams what are you, why are you following me?
” I am the creation which you hate the most….. dislike….. and many people embrace me happily despite having nothing in their lives. You have everything still you get so much worried by my slightest glance in form of a washing machine. I am God who came to you in the form of Poverty. Not to make you poor but to make you understand the plight of the poor and destitutes. To make to understand not to look down on them and help them. Imagine your life without your poor house maid, your driver and others. Still you treat them bad and insult them. Life without respect is no life…….no matter how much you earn.
With a confusing look at her face she wakes up. Her son asks her if she is fine. She simply smiles and says “For a rich man charity is the best way to please God”. Instead of renting the washing machine we should give it to our driver for free. I have earned a lot but distributed little. It’s time for me to change myself for good.
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.
