The new android phone!

Posted: June 28, 2014 in Uncategorized

So finally I got a new android phone.I was excited like anything. Because it was first android phone. So what happened is, it was not a premium one, but a basic phone with low resolution and not much of capabilities. Yet I was excited because it was my first droid device.

So a friend of mine,called up to congratulate me on my success.I thanked her, and she replied that she will soon come to see the new phone. But a few days later, she had an accident. So she was admitted in the hospital and couldn’t come to my place.


Then one fine day,as I was scrolling through the apps, I found an application, with a weird logo. It had a name Telemap. I was interested in the logo and the app. So I opened the application,and it had a same interface like that of the Google maps. I thought it might be the same as the Google maps. But later, when I typed 7,Race Course Road, Delhi in the search box, and turned on the internet, I found myself present in the exact location. At 7 Race Course Road.

Yes.! I was scared.. how did it happen? But it did happen. So my friend was admitted to the CMRI hospital due to her accident and it struck me that very moment. I typed CMRI Hospital,Kolkata and I landed up in front of the CMRI hospital. I went inside to meet her, and she replied, you were just talking to me on your landline and how are you here? I then said her the secret. She was taken aback but she said to prove me. I said her, “Hold me and lets go”. I typed Mahalakshmi Temple,Mumbai and I am a beautiful person. The very next moment we both were at the Mahalakshmi temple. She was excited because she wanted to visit it since long. She was very happy. And I felt weird but awesome yet.

Then she started clicking pictures from her phone and then we both offered our prayers.After that, I pointed on the “My Location” icon on the map. It instantly took us back home. But she was supposed to be at the hospital. So I had to type the CMRI address again and then left her there.

She suggested to take a backup of the application. She tried her best but couldn’t take a backup. So she ordered the same phone from the same shop from where I bought it. But the new phone did not have this pre loaded application. So, whenever she wanted to visit somewhere, she called me up and said to take her there. On the condition that she won’t be revealing it to anyone else. She agreed.

And we both happily travelled, wherever we wanted to. Whenever we wanted to.


The Momo Shop

It all started as follows. We had a momo shop in our locality. They used to be the best momo sellers in the whole locality. I liked their momo very much. Sincerely they were tastier than momos from any other momo shop.

I used to talk to the shop owners frequently. He said me that he belonged to Tibet. He was always against China and it’s people who disturbed Tibetans a lot.He was very young when he came to India to seek food. His parents died when he left Tibet for the first time. He was a happy man. I could see the satisfaction in his face. But I could feel whenever he says he has no one to look after him in the old age, except for his waiters and employees.

So one fine day it happened to be that the shop was closed. When it opened the next day, I asked what was the matter. The owner said that there was an outbreak of bubonic plague in Tibet and every waiter and worker went back to relocate their families. I felt sad and asked, don’t you have anyone. He replied he’ll be leaving soon to bring back his grandmother.

Then after that, several months the shop was closed down. There was no sign of the Tibetans. I used to think are they all fine, and other things.

Suddenly one day, it was late night. I was returning home and I saw that the shutter of the shop was open. I knew that it is always closed but then how can it be open. And when I went there, Lo! The owner waved and greeted saying his grandmother is fine and all. He also gave me a packet of momos saying I wouldn’t have to pay for it.

I was rather taken aback and then when I left the shop, I felt that it all was an illusion because after coming some distance, I saw that the shutter of the shop was the same as it had never opened with the lights off.

Then I reached home, and after refreshing myself, I opened the packet of momo only to see to my horror that there were momos with rat skin, leeches and some rat bones. I opened the sauce packet to realize it wasn’t sauce but blood. I had no option but to instantly throw it away. I realized that the momo shop was indefinitely closed.

I never went through the road where the momo shop used to exist.It was an absolutely scary moment for me.But then, later I read the news to realize that most people in Tibet had ceased to exist and it did include the shop owner and his whole group. But they came back from the other world, distributing death around.

I hope still now, whenever I go by the road late night, the owner looks at me, from the other world, and gives the same familiar smile.
