"Sir Shine! Shoe Shine! Sir, make your shoes brand new in few minutes" pleaded a kid barely 12 years old to the man in the suit

He looked at the kid irritatingly and then looked at his shoes, they did looked like they needed a shine, "Such a dirty place" he muttered

"Ok! Ok!" he said

The kid lit up and placed his platform below so sir can put his foot there, and he started on the shoes, he wiped them with a cloth and applied wax and rubbed and then rubbed some more first with brush and then with another cloth.

Within five minutes sir's shoes were shining bright.

"Oye! see one spot is remaining fix that too." Sir pointed

"Ok sir." was all the kid said that corrected the issue

"How much?" asked sir

"Sir only Rs. 20/-" said the hopeful

"What! are you trying to scam me, look at you asking me Rs 20 for a quick cloth swipe, here keep this 10 and go away" Sir ji shouted

Kid's face fell and he moved ahead to shine few more shoes

Sirji was a fairly famous man, and he made his way towards the conference hall where he was supposed to speak about the steps he took to help poor kids and making sure that they didn't work and attended school.

Sir was a social worker and a above all a hypocrite and the flash lights were shining bright on his as he entered the hall.

News from the Future

Agency: 14 July 2516 - The HOTTEST New Dish in town

A new dish has everyone rushing to this hot new destination but alas! most go in vain as the owner only serve the dish to cricketers and that too only visiting teams who visit Jamaica in West Indies. After all the restaurant is called Gayle's is managed by Great-Great-Great-Great-Great Grand son of Jamaican cricketer Chris Gayle.

The dish is called "Juvenile male thrubs in curry" this tasty dish has International crickets from across the world pushing their boards for a tour to West Indies and as well as thanking their stars to be playing cricket in this age where most of the other games are played by the robots.

We spoke with Gayle's owner Thomas Gayle IV who told us that the dish uses only the male juvenile thrubs as the female juvenile thrubs are not at all eatable and they are ultimately used to reproduction so that the males can be used for food. Females give birth to about 5000 larvaes at a time and out of which about 90% are male. Only juveniles can be used for food as the adult males are also inedible due to high salt content in their body, as they grow they accumulate salt in their bodies. Females as we all know are slimy to begin with and grow to be jelly like.

This  species crash landed on our earth aboard a small asteroid which crashed near West Indies and soon they made the West Indies their home and the world got their new favorite meal.

This starts hopefully my new feature called "News from the Future" though which I am trying to bring my imagination to a new era:

Story of Love

It was born to love, it gave and gave for love but still it was devoid of love.

It was born for love, it's destiny was to love but it gave and it was short of love.

It was thirsty for love and it's lover came to it with full force and took all the love.

It was big and shiny and it's lover was endless and all around there was love.

It was the original love story and it was the story of love.

It was a poem about love and it was the story of love.

They met if love and they parted in love.

It was a boulder and it's lover was the ocean.

Note - I tried to write a story and it turned out like a poem so let's call it a lyrical story and of course it's not the first one. Nothing is original because everything original has been already done by someone else.

Special Agent Dhruv

Dhruv was only five years old so as you may guess, he was only a kid. But he was super smart.

Dhruv was super active and was studying in the first class.

It was another cold night and everybody was asleep in their bedrooms.

Suddenly Dhruv was woken up due to some sound from the hall downstairs.

Dhruv silently moved to his parents bedroom but they were asleep, he tried to wake them up but to no avail.

Dhruv didn't panic and instead looked for his dad's mobile and quickly picked it and dialed 100 and talked quietly and quickly to the police officer on the line.

Within 10 minutes the police vehicle was outside their house and police officers covered the house, and entered the house to find 4 thieves in the hall trying to find valuables.

They were quickly picked by police and sent to police station, Inspector Rahul Makhija walked to the upstair rooms and spoke with Dhruv, who thanked the Inspector and told  him that his parents were not responding.

Rahul quickly moved to the bedroom to check the parents but they were only unconcious.

Rahul went downstairs and spoke with the thieves, they had sprayed chloroform through the second floor room ventilation.

Soon Dhruv's parents gained consciousness and when they learned about the bravery and intelligence of Dhruv they hugged him and thanked Inspector Makhija.

Next day Newspapers were full with the praises of Dhruv and details on the incident. India's Republic Day had to be celebrated next month and Dhruv's name was nominated for the bravery award.

On the 26th of January Dhruv was presented with the bravery award by the President of India while everyone clapped, his parents sat in the front row with all the other proud parents.

Later President called all the brave kids to a dinner at the President's house and he formally inducted all of them in a latest initiative the Kids Angels who were going to be the new face of intelligence and Secret Service in Country.

Plain old Dhruv was now Special Agent Dhruv and thus his new life began.

That Call

Rama was happily married to her husband Captain Sarabjit Singh who was in Army and posted in Jammu & Kashmir. She wasn't in J&K but rather stayed with her In-Laws in Punjab due to the unrest in the valley. Whenever Sarabjit came back to home her days were full of delirious happiness. And when he was away she would feel dread because she missed him and was always worried for him.

And then calamity struck, Rama was an Army wife so she understood that something was wrong as soon as she saw two officers on her door. She asked them in with tears in her eyes. She was informed that her husband was missing after a terror attack and was presumed dead. As soon as she heard this she broke down and the entire house was covered in a darkness which covered everything in melancholy. After few days they received the official letter of martyrdom of Captain.

Although Rama was a widow now she still had future to look up to as she was pregnant with Sarabjit's child he couldn't hear the good news before he bid goodbye to the world. Soon the time passed and though the pain never disappeared it ebbed enough to bring occasion smiles her lips. Few months later Rama gave birth to a baby girl that was the day she cried after a long time because she knew that this would have been happiest day of Sarabjit's life but instead he was no longer part of their life.

Few years passed and Rama got busy taking care of her baby and her in-laws. Rama had started working in an office and was managing house on her own with the help from the pension received from the Army. Just when everything was going on just fine, the phone rang and changed everything again. She was busy in office when her mobile rang, she didn't identify the number but answered none the less the voice on the other end was rough and low but she would identify that voice among millions of voices. Her Sarabjit was back. During the attack Sarabjit was captured by Pakistani military and held as a POW without informing Indian Government and Army about him. 

Sarabjit bid his time when everything was right he broke out of his prison and crossed the LOC and reported at his battalion there were only the words of happiness from Kashmir to Kanyakumari as the News of the return of India's Son spread in the TV channels. And soon Sarabjit was united with his wife, angel of a daughter and his parents.

Rama's life was full of happiness once again and she thanked her stars every day and night for getting her life back with that call.
