HUMANITY DISGRACED

When the land scam was exposed, all associated scammers  panicked. They were thinking of new schemes to save themselves. A huge fire broke out in the building where the files of their misdeeds were kept. The fire burned all the files but surprisingly bigwigs and their staff escaped. It was too big a coincidence, unbelievable, but the investigating committee ruled out the sabotage angle. When the price is right everything can be settled. The disheartening part was their indifference for the few innocent people, who were trapped inside and died, ‘In an overpopulated country a few less make no difference.’

Sony and Woofy

Sony and Woofy were inseparable. They had grown together. Woofy followed Sony everywhere.

So when Sony told mother that Woofy was a special dog who can talk and he is even more intelligent than Sony so she should allow Woofy to go to school with her, she dismissed it as a figment of his imagination.

‘Dogs don’t talk.’ She said. Woofy barked in disagreement.

‘See!’ Woofy told sony, ‘I talk to her, in fact all the animals, birds and nature talk to you human beings but few understand our language. That’s why they don’t understand our grievances.’

Five Sentence Fiction – Abandon

SOURCE

She watched her body lying on the floor like an abandoned house, her organs, heart, kidney, liver, all flying out one by one. Last to leave was her soul, looking despairingly at her.

‘Why are you all leaving me like this?’ She whined.

‘You have never respected and cared for this body, you took it for granted, and you forgot that it is an abode of God, you abused and misused it, you became a slave to your mind, you never listened to your conscience, your overindulgence in food and laziness had made us live inside it impossible.’

She woke up with a start; perspiring profusely; thank God; it was a dream, effect of all that junk food she ate last night, perhaps.

PERSPECTIVE

“At least sixty percent of earthlings are mad! They are an intolerant lot. They have forked tongue.”

The Alien father was passing on his knowledge to his son while touring the earth.

“They talk of brotherhood, love, compassion and compatibility but will kill each other to prove their supremacy over who was civilized first , over color, caste, creed, over whose  culture, religion is best, or over as silly an issue as whether one is spoon person, chopstick person, fork person or eats with his hands.

We  never judge people by their food habits but by their credentials.”

Brainwashed

He entered the biggest shopping mall of the town, he was looking epitome of courage, strength and vigor but all diverted in wrong path by .his mentors who brainwashed him into believing that all people who were from different religion, different ideology, believe in comfort and enjoyment were sinner and he will go to heaven by eliminating as much of them as possible.

He looked around cautiously satisfied himself  that no one is taking  any notice of him, and   are busy in   their  own entertainment, shopping, and /or  loitering around.

At first he hesitated, this was the life he himself would have enjoyed but then remembered about his mission moreover he could not go back now, death was awaiting him either way.

Sometimes he thought of asking his mentors, why they themselves did not accomplish mission and go to heaven but who he was to ask them when they have paid a hefty some to his parents to buy his loyalty.

He summoned all his courage and triggered the invisible explosive device wrapped around his waist.

PAYBACK

He came to this place exactly after one year. On the same day last year his wife went missing.

He triumphantly  admired the fog, warm sunlight and water.

‘Well’ he thought, ‘if a woman madly loves a man for his looks and is foolish enough to will him all her wealth  , she obviously deserved this…’

He did not notice the bubbles on the water forming a thick fog like structure coming to him, it embraced  him tightly, he felt suffocated but could not come out of it.

Before losing consciousness, he heard a whisper in his ears ‘ you also deserve this my love’

“Salvation”

Fiction- By Indira- 100 words

She was  arrogant, rude and never thought   twice before  humiliating servants in front of  others.
No servant lasted with her except  all rounder Ramu, who swallowed his pride as she paid generously  but now he was also exasperated with her and wanted to quit but not without teaching her a lesson.
So when she ordered him to repair her  dear synthesizer, which  also had to tolerate her singing in hoarse voice.
Ramu saw his chance.
After completing his job he patted it apologetically.
He said – ” Goodby synthesizer, and sorry, but it is your salvation too” and left the house forever.
