A Virus Monster

Unluckily one day a demon called Virus saw the prospering kingdom. He was jealous. So, the demon decided to capture the kingdom and acquire all its wealth and riches. But what would he do with it? After-all it was just a virus. 

He laid a magical spell on the kingdom. He decided to kill the people and turn the kingdom into a graveyard. The spell clouded the kingdom. People started falling sick. Medicines were not working. People started dying. 

The king was really worried. He asked his advisors to search for the cause and find a solution to the spreading disease. Soon, it was diagnosed that the disease spread through a virus which by some means resides only in human bodies and spread itself through sneezing, coughing, touching etc.

A Virus Monster

Now the king thought of a plan. He made an announcement in his kingdom that nobody will come out of the house for 40 days. All the essential things needed, would be provided to the people in their homes. He said, “Be sensible to save your lives or you will be punished or you will end your life.” 

He announced that the virus lived inside peoples’ bodies and if all of them stayed home, the virus won’t find a place to live. It won’t have any food to eat and thus it will die. He announced that all the people would be called true warriors if they stayed at home and followed a healthy regime.

All the people loved their king. They obeyed him and stayed at home. They followed the proper procedure of self and home sanitization. They prayed for the well being of each other and took all the necessary precautions to maintain hygiene.

Now after 30 days the virus became restless. It didn’t have any food as it survived only on human bodies. It searched everywhere but there were no humans out. The virus was really weak and shattered. 

Finally, it fainted and died out of hunger in 40 days. 

The spell of the demon was broken. All the people came out of their houses. They were happy. They celebrated the victory of good over evil. All of them have proved that they were true patriots and the kingdom smiled again with the happy noise of children playing on streets.

My Dog My Pet

We both went out for a stroll. He was very calm and I was in a relaxed mood. Suddenly he ran as he saw a female dog. Both started playing and played for fifteen minutes. Then we returned home. It was a good walk after all he met his friend. 

As I reached home my naughty sister was standing on the door. Her smile was a very mischievous one. She shouted, “mom David did not do his homework rather he went out to play with Bruno” and giggled and giggled. 

I went to study. Did my homework and started playing with Bruno. We both were having a lot of fun when I realised he ate my maths notebook rather tore it apart into pieces. I was Shocked. I started crying and went to my mom and said, “mom Bruno ate my maths homework. That troublesome dog ate my notebook.” How will I go to school tomorrow? I will have to take a leave.  

When mom entered the room to see what happened, she was shocked to see the condition of the room. It was all topsy-turvy and what she saw annoyed her a lot. My homework book was near Bruno’s food bowl. Mom shouted won’t he eat it? I got a good scolding that day. I sat down whole evening and the whole night to write my notebook again. 

I learnt a lesson that during fun times with your pets you should take care of your belongings. Otherwise, your pet will also do what my pet did:- gobble and swallow your notebook or even if your clothes are out, they will tear them too. As you love the fun time so do animals.

The Last Survivors: three Friends

along with countless zombies and monsters. Very few humans survived. Let us find out.

One day a boy named Tim came out of his tree-house to bring food. Yes, a boy of just 15 years. Till now he was the only survivor and his tree-house was saved from all terror attacks. A few steps he walked out of his house, a six-eyed monster was right in front of him. The monster caught him and was about to put him in his mouth, right then he quickly took out his cricket bat and hit on its big sharpened teeth, but alas! The bat broke. 

The clever boy without wasting any time with the same broken yet sharpened bat attacked on its eye. The mighty monster fell down rubbing its eye. Tim ran as quick as a wink and later on named that monster Blaar. 

After collecting food from the nearby shops he rushed back to his tree-house and tried calling Rack, his best friend and the second survivor till now who did not pick the phone up. Then Tim tried to sleep, after a while he heard trin-trin and picked up the phone and answered, “I will be at your place tomorrow”. He then started planning how to go to Rack’s house. His good luck was that while collecting food for himself he found a map of his town and the map indicated that Rack’s new house was in the west part of the town and there were many stone monsters there.  

The next day, he packed his bag with sharpened things and went to Rack’s house on foot. When he came closer to his friend’s house, he saw a rock monster. When he was about to turn away from that monster he could feel something bad, smelly and huge behind his back too. Oh my God, yes, it was another big rock monster. 

Both the monsters were roaring high and right then Rack came up Zip Zap Zoom with a rocket gun, flared at the monsters and asked Tim to go to his home. Tim opened the main gate quietly and entered Rack’s house without the zombies letting know. When Rack drew the monsters far away he came back to his home and said, “today we will stay here only and tomorrow we will go to your place; the tree-house”. 

What will happen next? How will they go to the tree-house? Will they be safe there?

Story No.18 The last saviours Part 2

Both the boys were safe at Rack’s place. They played, ate and slept. Then, next morning they were on their way to the tree-house in a modified car and on the way they sneaked into a video parlour and took video games. Both were excited as they did not have to pay money for the video games. “Some things really give ample happiness.” 

When they were halfway, Tim saw a friend with whom he had a fight and was angry with. They stopped the car and hopped out of the car and asked him if he wanted to join them. 

Yes, he was the third survivor, Jack. 

Instead of replying he ran with full force towards them and held the baby dragon by its feet and threw it away saving the lives of Rack and Tim. Yes, he was a mighty boy. 

And then said, “don’t say thank you.” 

Tim asked again, “will you come with us?” Come on, we will play video games and eat delicious food. 

Suddenly, they saw a monster of a horse size running towards them. The trio got scared and ran towards their car and hid behind it. The monster jumped over the car onto Tim, but it didn’t harm Tim, rather he licked him.

The Friendly Monster

Rack shouted he is a friendly monster. Then Tim said, “I will ride till home on him.” Let’s do a race and they kept it’s name Jojo. Jojo and Tim came first. They all reached the tree house safely. 

Tim kept thinking about Blaar? If he comes we have to protect our tree-house. And to save the tree-house we have to make a village of guns. 

All of them geared up the next day and started making crossbows and fixed it on the top of the tree-house. Also, they fixed sharpened things to the tree so that zombies and Blaar would do no harm. They made a deep circle around the tree and filled it with water. The next day Blaar and some zombies found them and attacked them. They all fought with acid stones, guns, swords, bows and arrows. Jack was throwing a big balloon of liquid but nothing harmed Blaar and zombies. Then they attacked with a sharp hook which got stuck on Blaar and it hit the tree hard making Rack and Tim’s sword fall down from the tree with that jerk. It was a scary situation. Tim shouted all of a sudden, “I will jump and Rack you give me the sword. This happened as planned and Tim pricked it hard on Blaar’s eye, he fell down with a big sound thud… AlsoJojo and Jack were busy killing zombies. At last, they all won. Blaar and those zombies were dead. 

What next? Were they safe? Were they free from monsters and Zombies? 

Story No.17 The last survivor’s Final Chapter

 The celebration mode was on along with the repair of the tree-house search for more weapons and security cameras. Few days were calm and the trio along with Jojo was enjoying their life. 

Then one day Tim saw that many zombies came out of a hole. Jack said, “this hole was closed, somebody has opened it on the first day of the zombie attack.” Rack said, “I saw a monster who was neither a man nor a complete monster but could speak.” Tim exclaimed, “I heard my dad say that there are some keys to these holes, let’s find them.” So they packed their bags and off they went on their rides. While crossing many shops they saw a light coming from the diamond shop in a mall. 

They thought that the first key might be in the diamond shop as it was looking different and sneaked in the mall, saw many zombies. They had packed two big tins of acid, out of which they threw one on them, all zombies died and they went inside the shop to find there were three keys. They took the keys and went to the car. As they drove a little further, Tim looked here and there. He found a cave and in there was a bright light. They went into the cave and found a transformer zombie monster along with two keys. They had lots of guns and tried to hit it with the guns and also attacked with acid. Nothing happened. Then the transformer came forward and opened its sword and attacked them but they ran out of the cave and hid behind their car. 

The transformer couldn’t see them, they made a plan to kill it with a small packet of acid that was left. Jack quickly put the acid in the car’s engine and Tim drove the car right into the transformer and jumped out and the car, both the car and the transformer exploded and the transformer zombie monster died.  

Then they again ran into the cave and took the two keys. Now they had 5 keys with them. They neared the hole in another car and saw the man cum monster who infected all the population. Tim ran towards him and tried to hit him with his sword but instead, the half man half monster kicked Tim with his foot and he fainted. Jack and Rack ran as they got scared. When Tim woke up he was in a big room and saw the monster going outside. He got hold of the keys which were in his pocket and escaped from the room and without wasting time he threw the keys towards the hole.

The elephant forgot the way back home. He missed the fragrance of mumma parrot’s food. He missed the chirping of the baby parrots. They were his companions and he had realised it now. 

On the other hand, mumma parrot missed the elephant every time she went out of the nest to get something. She started keeping food for the elephant in a separate vessel thinking he would be back soon. But days passed by and the elephant did not come.  

One day papa parrot said to mumma parrot, “ I will go and find him.” Before mumma parrot could say yes, papa parrot flew. He flew for two days and then on the third day he saw some animals running here and there. 

Bingo! He exclaimed, “ I found you, elephant”. He went down and sat on a tree. He laughed for a while looking at all the animals running and then he saw a truck in which the elephant was caught and was being taken away. Tears rolled down his cheeks and papa parrot flew down to the truck and from the window saw the elephant crying. 

He bid the elephant bye and said sorry I cannot help you. The elephant’s fear came to be true. Yes, he was caught and the parrot could do nothing. Papa Parrot flew back to his home and narrated the story to mumma parrot. Mumma parrot cried and cried and did not sleep the whole night.

An Imaginary Zoo

 He saw Lions, Tigers and their young ones. He saw chimpanzees and huge elephants too. Panda was rare to find but yes, he had a glance for a while. The fishes were oh! so colourful and bright, some were big, some were too small yet they survived. He also saw the elephant show followed by the dolphin dance on a tune very familiar. 

The day went so well. He thanked his dad and they came back home happy. 

Next day he did not come out of his room. When dad came to check him in his room, dad found that there were papers all over the floor with drawings of different animals. Hooda exclaimed in excitement, “dad I have written a small poem, can you please hear it”? 

His dad sat on the couch and the naughty brat started.

There were lions, there were tigers and black deers too 

Also, big elephants and giraffes, don’t you know? 

I’m not any more afraid to go to the zoo 

As long as the animals are in a cage and ignore us too …

A grumpy bear did I see which was so much dear 

I heard a dog which said bow-wow, I love you to the bear…

 A cat that meows all day long looked so cute

I saw a sheep that says baa-baa, the sound was like a flute….

The little pig says wee-wee I am not anymore meek 

I saw a hen that says cluck-cluck, and gave a weird look….

 Then I saw a cock says cock-a-doodle-do please get up you

Where shall I wander, last but not the least, said the Goosey, Goosey, Gander… 

And then I saw a funny bunny 

Nibbling a big carrot ready to gobble it in its small tummy….

This is my poem, as I create my own Zoo family. 

Dad rose up and clapped and hugged Hooda. Then father and son spent the whole day together talking about animals, their dwelling places, their young ones and the sounds they make.  

Story No.14 Nakul and the five sense organs

A long long time ago lived a prince named Nakul. He was a very lazy boy. Being a prince he was over pampered. He never used to get up early in the morning. He didn’t even brush his teeth properly. He used to take bath once in two days. He never used to listen to his mom, the queen of the kingdom “Maharani Shakuntala”. He never attended his archery classes and was never attentive in the head guru’s class. He just loved playing with his friends.

Nakul’s mother, “the queen” used to narrate bedtime stories with good moral to inculcate good habits in him. One night the queen was unwell. She was unable to narrate a story, so Nakul slept all by himself.  

He was half asleep when he heard someone whispering. He got up, but to find no one. He slept again, but the voice became more audible. He got scared. He tightly closed his eyes. The voice became more clear. It seemed as if it came from somewhere near him. He gathered all his courage and opened his eyes. To his surprise, he saw the five sense organs floating in the air in the room. They were arguing with each other as to who is the best and is Nakul’s favourite. Nakul was surprisingly astonished.

The ears came close to him and said, hello Nakul, “I am the best.” What do you say? Pushing ears back tongue came close to Nakul and said, “I am the best and your favourite.” ain’t I? Nakul was confused. But sooner did he understood the fight between the sense organs. Then, eyes took the charge and said, “stop shouting, Let us tell Nakul what are we good at and let him decide who is the best.”

So, they began, eyes started off, “I am the best ain’t I. See Nakul, you see the world with my help. You see the beautiful flowers, the green grass, the animals and everything and anything near you. Please, take care of me. I help you see everything. So I am the best.”

Nose said, “No I am the best. I help you smell things. I help you differentiate between good and bad smell. You smell food first and then eat it if you like it. Please take care of me as well. I am the best, ain’t I.”

Ears, “Nakul what is the use of seeing things when you can’t hear a bit. I help you hear different sounds. Just imagine you are in your garden watching birds, but you can’t hear their chirping. What a plight! When mom is narrating a story imagine you can see her lips move but you can’t hear. Oh! How would you feel? So I think I am the best of all.”

Tongue interrupted and said, “I help you taste what is hot and cold and what is sour and sweet. You speak with my help. So I guess I am the best. Tongue said I let you express what you feel to others. Need I say anything more. Ain’t I the best.”

Lastly spoke the skin, “I protect you from the harmful rays from the Sun. You can feel things with my help. I guard your muscles, bones and internal organs. So, I guess I should consider myself as your favourite.”

Nakul kept quiet for a few minutes but the tussle between the organs went on and on. Then Nakul asked them not to fight, as they all were his favourite. He could live a happy life only with all the five together. Suddenly all the five shouted and said, “then why don’t you take care of us?” “Why don’t you keep yourself clean and take bath regularly?” said the skin, the ear, and the nose. “Why don’t you brush your teeth and clean me along, said the tongue?” “Why don’t you get up early and walk on the green grass for me to live long with you, said the eyes?” Why, why, why… Don’t you. He got up. The dream was an eye-opener. Next morning he got up early went for a walk, followed by exercise and bathing. All were happy with him in his palace. He became one of the most inspiring kings of his time, who was strict with his regime.

Story No.13 Jiggy the giraffe and magical tree

Jiggy the giraffe was a beautiful giraffe, who was her momma’s favourite. Among the tower of the giraffes jiggy was the youngest. All lived peacefully in “the tower” that is the group of giraffes called.

One day Jiggy went out with his friends to fly Kite. All started flying kites. The sky was looking very colourful. Soon the sun went down, it became dark. All had a great day and returned home happily.

At night Jiggy sat down with her mom and said, “ I want to eat the highest leaf of a tree. I wish I was big in size mom”. Every day she prayed to the Lord to increase her height.

After a week the whole tower went for a picnic. All the friends played a lot of games like bat ball, hide and seek, hopscotch, kho kho, skipping and jiggy’s favourite badminton. While they were playing badminton the shuttlecock got stuck on a tall tree.

Now the question was how to bring the shuttlecock back. Kate jiggy’s friend said, “ We should make a pyramid and try and reach the shuttlecock. The lightest in weight that is Jiggy would be on the top.”

So, as decided they started making a pyramid which imbalanced many times, but they did not give up. After many trials say for about an hour and a half they decided to give a final try or lest they would leave the shuttlecock to the tree.  

This time the pyramid lasted for a few minutes and Jiggy was able to reach the shuttlecock. As she moved away from the branch of the tree after picking the shuttlecock, she found herself stuck between two branches. She got scared and shouted, “ I am stuck, the tree is not leaving me.”

Every first laughed. But sooner they realised what a mess Jiggy was in. To add to it, the pyramid broke. Now Jiggy was there alone, her neck stuck into the branches. The children tried to make the pyramid again and set her free. But all in vain. Now they called for the elders. All became worried. It was about to get dark. The elders were also not able to do anything. The night became denser, the sun rose and again the night came. Two days passed by, Jiggy was still hanging onto the tree and everyone was worried. Other animals of the jungle were called for help, but no solution came up. Then all of a sudden Kate shouted, “ look at Jiggy, she is coming down. But .. but … see her neck it’s getting long”. Within a few minutes, Jiggy’s feet touched the ground. She freed herself.

“Now you are the tallest,” said Jiggy’s mom. The good Lord listened to your prayers. Yes, mom, it’s a miracle. I will eat the topmost leaf of any tree now. Thus she became the first one of the Giraffe with the long neck. After that, all the Giraffe’s hung on the same tree with the help of Jiggy and became like Jiggy. They considered the tree as the magical tree.

Since then all giraffe’s have a long neck.   

Story No.12 Huddy..The desert ship

Huddy, a naughty camel was the only son Mumma Camel and papa Camel who were the head of the clan. He always used to irritate and disturb his cousins and elders of the herd. One fine day, the herd was travelling to a find a cool place to spend a few days safe from the scorching summers. The Sun was overhead. Days passed by, but the clan could not find a suitable place.

The camels in the herd became very thirsty. They ran for water here and there but what they saw was just a mirage.

Suddenly the sandstorm started. All the camels survived the storm because Camels have thick bushy eyebrows to prevent sand from blowing in their eyes. Also, they have three rows of eyelashes to stop any stray grains from falling in the eyes. To complement more their nostrils can be closed to prevent inhalation of sand and thick fur lines on their ears prevent sand getting into the ears.

Huddy was very thirsty after the storm. He got separated from the herd. He wandered here and there for water. But all he saw was also just mirage and small insects near some dry bushes. He started getting frustrated. While walking for yet another day he found nothing.

Huddy felt really weak. On the third day, he by chance met his herd and all were happy to see Huddy. Billy said, “where is your hump,  where did you lose it.” Huddy got scared, “I have it, I have it”. “See, see”, he said. But when he saw his shadow the hump was nowhere. He started crying loudly. Billy winked at all the members of the clan. All kept quiet.

The clan took Huddy a few miles back to the place where they drank water and ate food. Huddy was looking much better now. After a few hours, he stood and looked at his shadow. He could see his pride the humpback on him. He jumped with joy and shouted,“ I have my hump on my back now I can survive for many days.” I have stored water in my hump. To this mumma camel said, “ the hump was there on your back the way you looked at your shadow made the difference.” We all were pulling your leg the way you do with all of us. All laughed aloud.

Momma told him, “ We Camels don’t store water in the humps. The hump is actually a reservoir of fatty tissue. It acts as a source of energy and yields more than 1 gallon of water for each 1 gallon of the fat that is converted. Our kidneys  and intestine are able to hold water and because of this ability we can live in a hot and dry climate without water for days.”

She reached a small pond where she found a honey bee caught under a stone. Creepy freed the Bee. As soon as the bee was freed she turned into a fairy. The fairy asked Creepy her one wish which she wants to be fulfilled right now.

Mom and Rima went shopping in a big mall. Being a kid, she loved the fun city part of the mall the most. So, she insisted her mom take her to different swings and rides like the sky race plane ride, car ride, playhouse and many more on the kids’ floor.

She enjoyed a lot there with her mom. While returning she was full of excitement and fun. Then both of them entered a kids shop which was inaugurated a day before. There were a variety of clothes. Some festive wear, some very vibrant, some colourful pink and red frilly frocks,  while others were white velvet frantic long frocks, red and blue colour salwar kameez. Some more traditional clothes and some unique casuals with classy designs.

Rima was so excited about being in between the colours that she wanted to buy many clothes of different colours. She became stubborn about taking maximum clothes. Her mom being smart, bought her three best pairs of clothes by explaining to her the importance of new clothes for the upcoming festivals.

A traditional bright dress for Diwali: Mom explained to her the importance of wearing new clothes on Diwali as it reflects the brightness and happiness on this day. Diwali is the festival of lights. So we wear new but traditional clothes.

The casual wear for bhaiya dooj: Mom explained that bhaiya dooj is a pooja we perform for our brothers. And whenever we do a pooja we first need to take a bath and then wear new clothes and get ready to perform pooja.

Her favourite Santa Claus dress for Christmas: “Jingle bells jingle bells …. A Santa dress for the Santa of our house. Mom exclaimed with happiness.” So that you can spread love and happiness to your near and dear ones and your friends too.

Rima was very much convinced by her mom.

In a very jovial mood, she was back in the car and back to her home.

3 Puppies

They went near and saw three tiny little white puppies. They were lean and weak and could hardly move. Mera looked here and there for their parents, but she couldn’t find anyone nearby. Around 200 meters away Rohit saw a dog lying unmoved, he understood something must have happened to the dog, either some accident or might have died due to starvation.

Rohit said,” we will take these little puppies home.” But Meena told him, “mom won’t allow”. So they both decided they will try and convince mom to keep the puppies at home. Until then they will take care of the puppies. They went home and had their lunch.

Post lunch, Rohit said, “mom I have some work, I am going to my friend’s place.” Meena gave him a packet of milk to feed the puppies. He went there and with help of the guard on duty, he fed the puppies.

In the evening, they told their friends about the puppies. All made a team and took a pledge to take care of the puppies. They built a small home for them. Now, every day they fed the puppies with food, water, and milk. Days passed by, the puppies started gaining health and became active.

Within months they were grown-ups. Now the puppies could find food themselves. But still, the children gave them food, milk, and water. The puppies are now seen playing with those children, at times inside the society playground or at times outside the society gate but under the observation of the guard.

Lion story

Everything seemed to be gloomy. No wind was blowing. There was silence all over. Deer came out running from behind the thick trees, “Oh, how dark it is! he whispered ”. Peacock and Spider came next, “Oh how gloomy it is, they cried”.

Woodpecker came and said, “the sun is inside the lion’s mouth”, I saw while I was returning to my nest. Everyone was shocked. They rushed to the lion’s den. Zebra started sobbing “please leave the sun, its very dark”, but the lion did not care. All were afraid of the ferocious lion.

Honey bees shouted, “bring the sun back”. All animals howled outside the lion’s den. The Sheep said, “let us go to the fox, the cleverest amongst us”. All animals reached to the fox and begged the fox to save the sun from the Lion.

The clever fox agreed. It went to the lion, “hey, king of the jungle, the whole jungle is your home. You can eat anything and live anywhere. You are so powerful. But I guess you must be tired. It’s been days you didn’t sleep well or take rest as you were busy hunting food”.

Let me help you, the king of the jungle. Let the slave-like me hold the sun. I have a feast for you behind the rock. As soon as the Lion smelled the meat he opened his mouth wide to roar and out came the sun like a wink of an eye. It was a bright day again. So, all thanked the fox for its cleverness and were happy.

Whenever it’s dark and you don’t see the sun remember this story and believe that the sun is in the lion’s mouth and it is an eclipse for you.

He is happy and is always tension free. There are no mobile phones, so moms are always playing with their children. “And he giggles”.

There is no fight for money. Everyone has their own land for agriculture. Some have animals. Some have small shops. All are happy. My friends always come to my castle and eat lots of chocolate from anywhere and everywhere. The best part is chocolate grows itself again.

It’s a magic world too. There are no bad people. All are safe and happy. There are only good and beautiful fairies. Mom interrupted and asked,” Where are the schools in the story.” Rio was like mom,” its a story and in that, I am very much educated. All my friends and I are very intelligent.”  He then continued.

Then one day I get up and see you and dad have become old and I have grown up into a handsome prince. I get married to a girl named Silvia who is the princess of the junk food world.
