Unsuccessful Plan #Prose & Poetry

One day we all friends planned to hang out at midnight. I waited till everyone in the house went to sleep and then left the house.

Out of excitement I left the keys to the door. As I was going out without informing anyone in the house, I pushed my bike a little distance and then drove away.

We had planned to meet under the bridge at midnight, but after covering some distance, I realized my mistake of forgetting the keys to the door and so I went back.

Now in a panic I drove my bike straight to the main door. On hearing the sound of my bike Dad woke up and came to the window to check and I was caught. Our plan of hanging out and having fun flopped because of those keys.

This was the situation of my mind

Hang
out in
the middle
of the night goes
flop

Prison! #Poem

Once passing by the prison
Thought came to my mind

Why such a big gate to this building?
and why is this compound wall so high?


I asked the reason
No one told me as, I was child!

I arrived here
Inside this big gate

Why there is no connection with the outside world?
and why outside world takes us as criminals?

I understood everything here
But now it’s too late!

To make easy money
We kidnapped our friend

Why, I didn’t listen to my parents?
and why parents didn’t keep an eye on my friends?

Or else I would’ve not done kidnapping and robbery
In a company of bad friends!

Understood this is a dark life
So, completed further education

Why people don’t accept criminals, when they try to live good life?
and why criminals don’t get a chance to become a good person?


So, to start a good life
I want to wipe the stain!

Leech # Flash Fiction

The water was released from the small masonry dam to the field to grow vegetables

Once the lake dries up, people flock to catch fish. I also went to catch fish and set my foot in the mud and got stuck there.

The more I tried, the more I got stuck in the mud. Suddenly, I saw something on my leg and thought it was a baby snake and screamed.

My limbs began to tremble with fear. I felt dizzy and fell in the mud.

Friends carried me and pulled out the leech which I thought was a snake.

Turn In Life #Flash Fiction

The wife of a rich man dies suddenly. Relatives remarry him as he has a young son. His son’s name is Richard.

For a year or two, his second wife takes good care of her husband and her stepson Richard and wins their heart but when her own child Bunty is born, she shows her true colours.

The father dies with this grief.

She is a dirty and filthy woman. She treats Richard like a servant and even stops his schooling. Richard wants to learn and become a big man but she beats him brutally and holds him in her fist. His father tries to save him but can’t help as his wife has taken control of everything.

She controls Richard in everything. He is so influenced by her that he becomes a stoic.

She and her son Bunty sit at the dining table to have food and Richard is asked to sit on the floor and have the leftovers.

Richard works day and night in his own field with his servants as he has a habit of enduring everything with silence.

One day an accident occurred on the highway while he was working in the field, so all the vehicles had to divert from the main road and go over the field embankment.

A rich girl’s car gets stuck in the mud. She screams for help, Richard rushes to her aid and with the help of other servants pulls her car out of the mud. This rich girl begins to see him as a stuntman.

Gradually she develops interest in him and comes to the field to meet him. She learns from other servants that his stepmother is harassing him. She tells Richard that she’s not a rich girl but the daughter of a driver who drives a car of a rich man.

Further she makes a plan by meeting other honest servants who help her in her plan and as per their plan a farmer takes the girl to Richard’s house and tells his stepmother that, if she accepts his daughter as her daughter- in-law then he will give her 1000 square meters of farmland.

This greedy woman with the hope of getting 1000 square meters of land got her married to Richard.

After getting married, Richard goes to the farm as usual. At home Richard’s stepmother tells the housemaid not to come for work as she wants Richard’s wife to do all the house chores.

As Richard’s wife knows everything about her mother-in-law she doesn’t obey her orders instead she beats her with the same belt which she used to beat Richard. Her addicted son , Bunty too gets beaten when he comes to help his mother.

When Richard comes home to have lunch he is surprised to see everything has changed in his house.

The relationship between the stepmother and her son Bunty was split. Seeing this strange change, Richard starts thinking how all things have changed in his house in a day.

Whispers In The Cemetery

One summer at midnight, I went to the church compound to steal tender coconuts. I was stealing tender coconuts, filling a jute bag, and taking a sip of beer. Suddenly, I heard someone whispering in the cemetery. With the jute bag, ran towards the cemetery. Someone was whispering, “One for me, one for you. ” I dropped the jute bag right there and drove straight home.

The next day, I informed my friends that there was a ghost in the cemetery and realized that it was not the ghost but they were Louis and Dominic distributing the stolen cashew seeds

A rocky landscape
Time Machine is exploring
An old house of mine
Collection of memories
On a small piece of landscape

A bricked up tunnel
green grass emerges out daily
green revolution

When peace dwells
There rings a bell
There is no illusion
and any sort of confusion!!

Dove is a symbol of peace
and God’s Holy spirit
Lotus temple symbolises peace
and all religions inspirit it!!

Longhorn Crazy 🐜 #Monologue

Shh …. What a mess. These trees are rotten and dirty. When will this man come to his senses? Apart from managing his oxygen banks, this man is destroying forests.

I was grumbling and suddenly my foot slipped and I fell into the water below the tree. My luck was strong, so I fell on the leaf of a Peepal tree.

Hey….what do you say. What kind of ?

You can see it in front of any temple. It has heart-shaped leaves.

Yes … that’s it.

But since the leaf was in the water, I had to stick to it.

Hey….What do you think? ….I’m a black ant.

My name is Longhorn Crazy. This is my scientific name but my biological name is different.

What did you ask? Scientific name mean?

Scientific is the name given by a scientist and biological is the name given by parents….Got it now?

So, what was I saying?

Yes…. that night was the night of the new moon. There were no moon or stars in the sky. Dark night….. Darkness was everywhere. There was an empire of darkness. I thought that even if I moved a little, I would be immersed in the water, so I held the leaf tightly but did not eat the leaf out of hunger. If I eat the leaf, the leaf will get a hole and it will drown me. I just kept watching how and where the Peepal leaf goes.

What do you say, why, could not do anything?

I kept praying to God. Finally one day the Peepal leaf started to edge. I somehow got down and inspected the place.

What do you say, What kind of survey?

If you reach the ground after so many days, you don’t have to see if the place is safe or not.

I didn’t see any acquaintances. I was alone. A little further on, I met a friend. Her name was Anochetus Graeffei.

She took me to her house and there I felt “I was a stranger in a very strange land“, because they all made their home under the black stone and everyone had a golden color. They were all golden and I was the only black among them.

I have expressed my black color in this poem.

more lavished,
villains portrayed,
darkness represented,
by lazy and easy black colour!!

elegant appeal,
bold and powerful,
mysterious evil,
shown by lazy and easy black colour!!

Reveals dark arts,
absorbs UV rays,
presents negative traits,
this lazy and easy black colour!!

Without distinguishing between black and white, we remain united. Let’s help each other,wherever we go on this earth, let us remember one thing, we are all human beings and our only religion is humanity.

It’s too late, I’ll come again …. Let’s see when we meet….. Bye.

Colour discrimination is mentioned only for the colour challenge and not to hurt anyone.

Sodium

Metal sodium

Immersed in a atmosphere of Nitrogen
To avoid exothermic reaction.
Not to come in contact with oxygen
So handle it with care and precaution.

With water shows exothermic reaction.
Gives warm effect and explodes.
With kerosene shows endothermic reaction.
Gives cool effect and implodes.

Exothermic reaction gives warm effect that is why it is explosive whereas Endothermic reaction gives cool effect and this is why it is stored in Nitrogen and kerosene….😊
