Catching up

Catching up with my studies

Sometimes hard.. sometimes easy

I study all the way..

I study all the way..

I sleep early as I could

Time comes morning..

I am lost out of wit

I am lost out of wit

and there am at home

loosing out an exam

Failing all the way

Catching up on my fear

overcome I can

overcome I can

if I decide to win

if I decide to win

catching up on my studies

making myself win

 

Noisy Sounds

Rohan shrieks ‘you too get lost’

their kid Tom shrieks ‘both of you get lost. I need to study’

When Rohan reaches office, he finds the pitch presentation deleted by his secretary Louisa

He shrieks ‘What the hell is this.. we are struggling here for Series A fund and you have deleted my hard work’

Louisa ‘you could be having in email id or google drive’

Rohan ‘don’t teach me technologies now.. I need to rework

As he is working, Alisa calls him ‘I just got a call from home, Tom has consumed some pills’

Rohan rushes to his home…

Tom is subconscious and with foams in his mouth.. His care taker Susan is looking shocked..

Rohan ‘why the hell you not taking him to doctor’

Susan ‘Police case.. just cannot do anything’

Rohan calls his family doctor home

Family Doctor Jackson reaches home and Alisa and Rohan are curious…

Jackson see’s Tom and then pricks Tom with a needle..

Tom shrieks and gets up…

Jackson ‘Enough of acting.. study now’

Jackson ‘did you both fight today?’

Alisa and Rohan sheepishly nod ‘yes’

Jackson ‘Now he is just acting and hope he doesn’t really commit suicide one day’

Jackson ‘Noisy Sounds no one likes.. learn to chill pill in life. No point grumbling’

Morris’s wife Jennie has seen Morris have his own share of frustrations when politically he would be out of sports because of aggressive outbursts..

His daughter Ziyu is sweet person who loves everything but sports…

Morris ‘This whole concept came out of a realization that life is a circle… we cry when we come to earth, we again feel bad when we go up.. and in between we experience child hood again when we are old’

Ziyu ‘Dad what is the game all about?’

Morris ‘It can be played by a family of two or four and largely for adults only’

Ziyu ‘how?’

Morris ‘Day 1  any family member decides to be child. some member with be ‘youth’, third member will be ‘middle age’ and fourth member will act like ‘old person’

Ziyu ‘interesting’

Morris ‘this will be for 1 whole week’

next week ‘individuals will change their role’.

That way in 4 weeks ‘each individual will experience full life’

Ziyu ‘what will be their responsibilities’

Morris ‘child will be demanding.. will get what he or she wants’

‘youth will have freedom to go for picnic, date etc but will need to own full responsibility of money matters for that week’

‘middle age person will need to ensure all demands of old age person met..  need to manage the old person.. need to manage house hold chores’

‘old person will be demanding too.. but will not get what he or she wants easily.. old person will need to ensure child gets everything and learn to share with the child and also keep a close tab on youth’s whereabout ‘

Ziyu ‘I love this game.. but who will win?’

Morris ‘we will have each individual give score on 1 to 5 (poor, average, good, very good, excellent’ and rate the family member at end of game..

Ziyu ‘the best score wins the game?’

Morris ‘yes’

The Big Ticket

Susan is a struggling researcher who is frustrated that her research never has the depth. A born Anthropologist, she loves to study human behaviors ever since she was a child..

As a child she would observe her father hitting her mother for small small things.. She would sometimes hold his hand too…

She had one question to him

‘DO YOU LOVE HITTING?’

and the answer she got was a SLAP on the face..

As a teenager she observed how her friends had begun sending love letters to their boy friends or vice versa.. she caught hold of Trisha and asked her a question  ‘HOPE YOUR BOY FRIEND DOESN’T TROUBLE YOU AND KISS YOU FORCEFULLY’

Pat came a big pinch on her bum..by her friend.. Trisha

Trisha ‘Don’t ask stupid questions..’

Susan ‘Am just checking if you are not a child abuse victim’

Trisha ‘Are you nuts.. you keep studying those every day trending news.. Don’t get hyper over such items’

Susan ‘Is it so?’

Trisha ‘you are a teenager.. enjoy life.. have boy friends’

3 years later Susan finds Ayub to be very charming.. too cute.. She gets a massive crush on him…

and then as her habit, she asks him a question ‘Why your name Ayub? Not sure if my family accepts you as my husband?’

Ayub is shocked, surprised and amused

Ayub ‘What?? Hey we are only friends.. No melodrama please’

Susan has drops of tears..

Susan ‘I just asked you a true honest question?’

Ayub ‘I have long way to go.. I have no love feelings for you’

2 years later she is struggling researcher wanting to understand causes and symptoms of her problem first and then others.. She is now Masters in Anthropology too

She see’s a seminar ‘BIG TICKET TO NASA SPACE COMPETITION.. All who can develop robots who can understand behavior trends of nature welcome’

Susan retrospects ‘For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.. May be her actions were such that it had to be rebuked.. so she writes an abstract

‘want to explore the stars and planets in galaxy through satellite images and keep mapping their trends.. and check how separations and unions take place ‘

Her mother smiles at her abstract and says ‘ It is your big ticket to fame’

Doing Nothing?

“If someone is not doing anything,  don’t worry.. begin counting all objects around you.. Try to focus on object which is most important to you and soon you will have work”

The students in class were unconvinced with the teacher and demanded explanation

The teacher said ‘Please try this at leisure’

On sunday noon a group of students decided to experiment.

Susan was in garden and she started counting trees, kids, couples and all around. She found an attractive boy flying kites..

She began focusing on him.. Soon he observed she is looking at him with great details..

The boy came and asked Susan to hold the kite threads while he played kites and also asked Susan to check how far the kites can fly.

Bob was in hostel room all alone and soon began counting all objects around him.. He came across a cork ball and got a brainwave to check if it could break the door if hammered continuously. Soon he began playing catching ball from his bed and hitting the doors.. Soon enough cracks emerged in the door. His room mates came in and shrieked

‘Have you gone mad? why you making cracks on doors”

Bob ‘I was only checking cork ball strength

Batch mates ‘Now please repair the doors else we will not pay the fine and will not allow you to be with us”

Next day in class

teacher ‘did anyone attempt’

Bob and Susan raise their hands..

teacher ‘did work come in?’

Both meekly say ‘yes’

teacher smiles and says ‘Idle man in devil’s workshop.. To create constructive work, you need to think constructively else someone else will make you work soon’

Fellowship

Wang was crazy to watch movies.. As kid all would joke ‘She should do PHD in Movies’..  As she grew up, she began watching all languages of movies…  One day she came across Discovery theories in google.  On probing she realized that indeed she should do PHD in Movies..  Thesis title ‘Script Writing – Discovery or Creation.. Movie Success Empirical Analysis’

As a Chinese Student she had profound knowledge of all international movies.

She got into analysis of all movies made till date… and realized.. Creation is not successful Never..  Discovery is successful. She approaches top director Steve for a discussion..

Wang ‘Sir.. why does your movie flop if it is creative and whenever you follow your brand loyalty.. the fiction genre.. you deliver a hit’

Steve ‘Creation..  All creation is abused in this world.. No one accepts creation easily.. Einstein’s relativity theory,  Even in colleges.. no one funds creation.. research funds less..  So whenever i experiment with some thing new.. no takers.. they say  that I will flop.. so unfortunately i need to get back to fiction’

Wang ‘Sir.. Good v/s evil..  Love triangle.. Horror Revenge.. Humor (couple, friends, kids, animals)

Steve begins laughing.. and then we have ‘Super Man.. Spider Man.. Alien’

Wang begins laughing..

Steve ‘Discovery.. It is easy.. we borrow old hits and convert them to latest style movie.. Very easy.. plagiarism.. All copy rights go for toss. franchising model.. movies these days titled  ZOOM-1, ZOOM-2 and so on.. Discovery is where huge investments needed.. Only VC or big money folks can pay…   Creation is where Angels, family. friends invest’

Wang ‘Hence we find all movies using formulas which are proven’

Steve ‘Absolutely.. Some times we create unique fully knowing we wont’ get returns but we aim to get OSCARs’

Wang begins laughing

Steve ‘I have been conferred Doctorate  too’

Wang ‘Sir you are genius.. I took so much pains to reach you.. Need to collect 25 more samples.. Interacted with 25 directors and all said.. Only successful formula acceptable to investors.. and hence am confused’

Steve ‘Why? ‘

Wang ‘All these while i kept seeing formula movies and then few different.. So who can be game changers’

Steve ‘Creators.. but they will need to accept failures’

Wang smiles…

Wang ‘Sir i wish to be a game changer.. I want to bring in short films on internet.. Need your support’

Steve ‘Absolutely.. I can…  Am admitting you in our Movie Fellow ship program..  You can pursue PHD from China even then..’

Wang hugs Steve

Wang ‘Sir.. I love you for your professional contribution’

Steve ‘Wang.. important that what you do.. you need to connect to audience.. reach their hearts.. audience need to cry, laugh, emote like what you visualize and depict in big screen’

Steve ‘Pain Point.. Controversial Movies.. All creations.. Surely gets noticed.. ‘

Wang ‘Like?’

Steve ‘An actor singing songs in toilet’

Wang and Steve both begin laughing

Wang ‘Sir.. dinner with me?’

Steve ‘Sure my child’
