Thursday Thoughts 17.4.14

thursday thoughts

It is quite an intriguing thing to observe how weather is changing, one will wonder about the reasons naturally, because weather directly effects us, whether we love it or hate it.

What do you think? What can be the possible reason of excessive cold in cold countries and excessive heat in hot countries and too much rain in both? Is it global warming- man made? Or is nature just taking its slow turn toward another climate change? Another ice age may be looming in the horizons…

If it is totally man made, then it is sad to notice how much damage one species can do to a whole planet!

I am absolutely bored with excessive heat down here!

cat and dog 1.4.14

“They are magnificent creatures.” He could not stop himself from gushing, the dog was pure black, the cat pristine white.

“His mother either deserted him, or he got lost.” the mistress of the motel said, looking at them fondly. “He could barely walk … poochy had a litter of still borns, she was grieving and he showed up. We initially hesitated, thought that dog milk will kill him. Look at them now!”

bridge on river chenab

bridge on mountain river 21.3.14 2

There was a wooden bridge on the river, and when it rained up on the hills the river became a nightmare, it tried to claw away the wooden bridge, crossing it took lot of courage.

So many lives were lost.

One night the village head was returning from his daughter’s home, on the other side of the river, the river was raging but he had to cross, his wife was not well.

When he was in the middle of the bridge he heard a shrill cry, coming from the boiling river, he saw a small boy in the churning foam and without thinking jumped into the water, to save him.

He remembered clutching the child and feeling that his body was not flesh, but metal, next thing he remembered a pair of strong hands pulling them both out of the water.

He opened his eyes in the bank of the river, safe and sound.

His body was aching to hint that it was not a dream. He looked around and gaped, overnight the wooden bridge was replaced by a strong metal bridge. The river was trying to reach it but was intimidated and tamed by its strength.

the long walk

castle on hill 21.3.14 1

Spring breeze brushed her cheek, hot due to exertion and calmed them. It carried the fragrance of flowers to soothe her.

She looked up, the palace was a few more minutes away. She could see the tea table, with a tall glass of orange juice waiting for her.

Oh the pain of being a princess! Just imagine, people are jealous of us…. she thought. Wake up at five to avoid public and take long walks, to maintain your figure for marriage. Treadmills are not meant for ladies… she mocked her father in her mind.

Wait till I get married and start living in US…

Some other stories in other blogs

TWO

“It’s alright Krishna…” Raju said. Deep in their hearts they both knew it was not… a dark shadow of gloom has clutched their young lives in its vicious talons.

Was it gloom or curse.

Mr. Bhutoria handed him over a cheque, “All you will have to do is keep that girl away from my son… I dont care how you do it, I will pay you the money, you will have to do the thinking and in a way that it does not gives any inkling that I am involved. I dont want my relationship with my family get ruined because of a girl.”

He involved his father, his brother and that “girl’s” brother. They shared the booty and his father, impersonating him kept the girl in his clutches, she lived in a fool’s paradise that she loved a young man, her age, who was about to marry her.

By the time she guessed it, it was too late.

Krishna and his father, brother has played their roles well, they have convinced Mr. Bhutoria’s son that his dreamgirl was having a flings with two men at a time, father and son, both married. Their wives went crazy and ruined the girls reputation, quite justly.

The girl disappeared from their vicinity. No one knew if she was dead or alive. That day their five year old son died, in a mysterious fever.

Ten years have passed since that day, every time a child is conceived… it dies.

They both sit and time after time it comes to their mind how much that girl wanted to have a child of her own, more than anything else before they showed up in her life…

thursday thoughts

When you think of aliens, what comes to your mind?

Do you think of a hostile species, with weird guns or powers trying to conquer earth or gentler creatures like the one’s in cocoon?

I am a firm believer of extra-terrestrial life, sorry, under no circumstances will i believe that earth is the only place that supports life.

As for hostile aliens, attacking earth to destroy it, just because they can- well, I think that is just human way of explaining another fantasy, once their God’s were scary, then they became kind, now they are corrupted – sounds like human civilization itself… a bit if not totally :)

Now, the kids are bored with playing with God, angels and demons, so they are inventing little green men in earth and outerspace.

If you watch a couple of movies in which human colonization of other planets is shown you will know what I mean.

couple boating 21.3.14 2

“This is beautiful!” Ratri said. “How much longer before we reach the island?”

“Another hour…” her guide said.

“It will be dark by then…” She said, “What about return?”

“There is bus service, I will help you to board the bus and take the boat back…” he replied.

Bus to my and my friend’s hungry tummies… he thought and started weighing how much flesh she had.. how soft or hard it might be…
