Watch it!

Last birthday Ravi received his grandfather’s watch. It was an old watch. Its glass was badly scratched hardly one could see the digits in the dial. Everyday the battery looses 5 minutes and it needed constant winding. Still Ravi loved the watch. It was his pride. He liked to show it to everyone, tell time even when anyone wasn’t asking. He constantly glances at the watch, admires it. One day in a school fight, the watch got lost. He searched it everywhere but couldn’t find it. He was very upset for days. Later his father bought him a new watch to cheer him up. But Ravi never used it, as nothing can replace old love!

tea…

She hated her job as a tea taster. She hated the raw, wriggling taste and the strong odour, colour of the tea. However, she was compelled to drink every cup. One day while attending a tea party at a friends’ house, she was drawn to an aroma. Aroma that was so divine. She closed her eyes and enjoyed every moment of it, thinking of all the beautiful smell of heaven and earth. Suddenly she was jerked from her thoughts. A waiter stood in front of her with a tray.” Madam, Can I interest in some fine flavoured tea?”

Reflection!!

It was 3.03 in the morning and there was someone in his bed. He woke up shocked and appalled. Its skin was wrinkled, hair was grey. He thought, “Who is this?” Frightened and hesitated he tried to trace his last night’s memory. But no clue. Lost in despair he sat in front of his desk. Suddenly something jerked him. He was surprised to see his own reflection. Old, wrinkled with grey hair. He was upset to see, what age has done to him. A voice continuously echoed in his head, he woke up with a jolt. Everyone shouted “Happy birthday!”. He left everyone and went to bathroom in hurry. Slowly he opened his eyes and felt relaxed. Everything is fine. Neither sign of grey hair nor any wrinkles. Guess! he saw a bad dream, he just turned 21. Suddenly his fear returned as he took out his first grey hair!

cherry…

Cherry fruits fascinated Ravi, so he decided to plant a cherry tree in his garden. This was his desired task. He would look after the tree, water it and protect it. As time went, the tree grew stronger with new shoots and branches. Many visitors paid visit, Cuckoo, Bulbul, Butterflies, all seem to love the tree a lot. It was everyone’s favourite place in the garden. On sunny days Ravi  would rest under its shade, the little leaves would dance on the breeze to greet him. He loved watching it. He loved the view of the tree. When spring arrived, the first blossom made him happy. He touched its bark and gaze at the tree for long thinking… is this it what feels to be god?

she was very talkative

She was very talkative. For this, she got lot of scolding from her teachers, parents and friends. She was only comfortable and talked with full heart to her doll. She was her silent listener. One day while dusting the room, the maid lost the doll. And then she went to complete silence!

mission…

It was 3:03 in the morning and there was someone in his bed. He couldn’t remember anything, after he passed out last night in the club. Nervously he searched for his gun, but it wasn’t there. He panicked. When he turned around the bullet went straight to his heart. It was close shot. He felt cold and slowly he dropped his head. Suddenly, phone rang and a female voice spoke softly, mission accomplished!
