My First Valentine…

We all love to love others and get loved by them. It’s basic human nature.  Today on the eve of Valentines Day, my thoughts travel back to my childhood days and my first valentine. Yes, my first valentine at the age of 5 years.

I was in Anantapur when I was about 4 yrs. We stayed at All India Radio quarters in first floor. In the ground floor, right below us lived my first and best friend Vaishnavi. She is a Tamilian. She is a sweet girl and we used to always stay together. She used to study first standard while I was in UKG. We were in same school and travelled in the school bus sitting side by side. We really enjoyed each others presence. We always played together, read together, and at times take nap together under the banyan tree near our home. It’s one of the most memorable times I had in my life.

My other friends always teased us for staying together and they spread the news that we were in love (See how the little minds think at the age of 7 and 8 😛 ). In fact, that was the first time I came across the word “LOVE”. I don’t know the meaning of it then and I thought that we are in love as my friends were saying so. I even told her “I Love You” and she in turn said “I too Love You”. And this was how she became my first valentine of my life. The first kiss of my life was given to Vaishnavi, my first valentine, on the last day of my first standard half-yearly exams. The days were going great with Vaishu beside me and playing together in the ground, in the fields and around the banyan tree.

But this happiness didn’t last too long. The final exams came and with it, the summer holidays too. I left Anantapur and came to Vizag to visit my grand parents. I returned back after a month and I was shocked to know that Vaishnavi’s dad got transferred to Coimbatore. I never saw her again in my life. I missed her very much. May be, she too. This was how my first (last till date) Valentine ended in a bit of tragedy.

This is the story of my first Valentine and I am still single :P. I think everyone has their first Valentine in their life at some stage or the other. What’s your first valentine story?

                                                                                                 A’run’ runs….

 

Arun was running as the police were trying to catch him.

        He moved into the bushes nearby and hid himself.  The police gave repeated warnings for him to come out, but he didn’t turn up. Atlast, they opened fire…

     And suddenly, water was splashed on his face and Arun woke up from his deadly dream…

P.S. Don’t we get these kind of dreams? We do get, infact lot of times.  If you got such dreams, do share here 🙂

Only 1411 left! Please Save Tiger…

It’s a shame on us that our National Animal, The Tiger, has gone down to such a low number and is at the verge of extinction. From around 40,000 at the turn of the last century, there are just 1411 tigers left in India. Common fellow Indians!!! Wake Up and be a part in saving our beloved Tiger.

As the present generation of this country, if we fail to save our National Animal we will remain as a black mark in the history forever and be praised to be the successful generation of implementing the extinction of tigers. Do you want the future generations to read, “Once upon a time in India, tigers lived”? Do you want to be termed as the best generation to perform the worst actions? We have already achieved a sort of this in fields like communal riots, corruption, politics and what else do you want to include in the list, huh? Common! Just think for a while.

Let’s at least save our very own “Warrior of the Jungle”. Its time to change ourselves. As Gandhiji said “Be the Change you want to see in the world” Let that change start with you right now. Take an active role in saving our tigers. Spread the word. Save Tiger.

Watching a TV or chatting over net are not the only things that gives you pleasure. Things of this sort would also give you the ultimate satisfaction for doing something good in saving an entire race.

Common!!! Take an active part. Spread the word “Save Tigers”

I have already started spreading the word “Save Tiger” and trying my best to create awareness among people about what we are going to loose if we don’t act. What are you going to do???

Girl on the shore

It’s sunrise time…

She was like a lost mermaid sitting on a rock near seashore. Her hair is completely wet and she looked just fabulous…

She leaned to one side and is drying her wet hair. The curves on her body made the water so irresistible that a giant wave came and took her away…

P.S. This is my first 55 fiction. Please give me your valuable feedback so that I can improve myself for the next one.
