Vegetable Woes

Prank has inherited gift of understanding vegetable languages.. He has strong passion to be in garden and observe vegetables talking to each other

Tomato 1 ”god made me juicy, red with so many seeds in it.. ”

Tomato 2 ”we all will be thrown or cut. Why our life is so small”

Tomato 3 ”just the other day found onions being thrown by those farmers.. more supply.. less demand.. not sure why farmers imitate each other and keep having same crops”

He moves to the farm where onions are growing

Onion 1 ”so tired to make all cry.. but no one understands that the bacteria’s and virus attack us when cut and not used”

Onion 2 ”why were we not born as humans or animals or even tree’.. why a vegetable..  Have seen a lady telling that her mother-in-law has become a vegetable.. bed ridden.. means vegetables have no purpose,,.. no mission.. no one values our mineral content too. I heard a lady telling to her husband.. don’t become a lady finger.. most of times skinny and not erect at all’

He moves to lady finger’s farm land

Lady Finger 1 ”many love me and cut me in bits and pieces.. not sure why those white seeds inside me..  sometimes soft.. sometimes erect.. not sure how people select me.. do they want softness or they want stern ness or they want a mix of both??”

Lady Finger 2 ”dear.. women want a mix of both… and men too… hence we are lady fingers…  the ones who can hold their beloved with mix of both love, affection and sternness too if men go wrong”

Prank burst laughing….

His girl friend Sarah comes in

Sarah ”Are you mad? who said vegetables talk…

Prank ”wait a minute…”

After few minutes

Sarah ”common.. don’t play mischief.. why you made me into a potatoe of all things?”

Prank ”potatoe is the favorite item and put in all food.. hence…”

Sarah ”please… make me a human again”

Prank ”promise me.. you will eat vegetables regularly and respect it.. for what it provides us”

Sarah ”please.. will do that”

After few minutes

Sarah ”Are you magician too?”

Prank ”A botonist.. please.. now don”t ask me how you got converted to potatoe..”

Ravi smiles and walks around the over crowded churchgate, mumbai, India station to reach his office..

He murmurs ”our life at times get caught in an environment which looks like an overcrowded train.. it could be an overzealous startup trying to compete with all.. it could be an employee fighting for salary hikes.. or roadside beggar competing with other fellow beggars.. just we need someone to kick our butt and move us out of that train”

Ravi’s 2nd girlfriend Ria greets him ”Ravi not done..  how come you can love so many individuals at same time… dont you feel your heart is overcrowded too””

Wisdom of Relation

Nancy is fedup of her mother who continuously keeps lecturing her on Does and Dont’s of life.. and one day…

Nancy ”enough is enough Mom.. now listen to me..”

Mom Pesi is stumped.. She remembers how her husband left her for this continuous bombardment of advices…


”if you were so perfect.. why did he leave you..  if you were so beautiful.. why do you still need make up kits to decorate self..   If you were so social.. why the same friends gossip about you..  If you were so good in making food dishes.. why you didn’t make food for us every day…  Did you never made friends without your parent’s permission? Did you never fell in love without your mind and only allowed heart to think? Why do you give advices.. when am already overloaded with you knowledge bombardment..  Just let me live in peace Mom..   everything will never be perfect… am an imperfectionist.. so let it be.. if you wish to love me for what I am.. just do that.. do not try to change me.. and one thing you should do.. is change other’s mind set only through self realization”

Mom hugs Nancy..

Mom ”Nancy.. you are grown up now.. I should begin searching for a boy for you”

Nancy bursts laughing..

Nancy ”Mom.. so now that you will stop advicing me.. you are now going to search boys for me.. good going… there is a saying Empty Mind is Devil’s workshop and  Mom’s mind is Devil’s workshop too.. keep thinking how to always put me under some pressure or not..  so now you wish me to decorate self and show self to prospects”

Mom ”being single.. all can talk anything..  the day a boy will come into your life.. you will realize who the real devil is…  love makes us do everything.. and one day without listening to me.. your father just left me for that other lady.. simply because she didnt care for him.. only his wealth.. would only listen to him and just keep demanding”

Nancy ”Mom.. common.. now you are getting emotional.”

Nancy hugs Mom

Nancy ”Wisdome of Relation is nothing but to keep nurturing the relation we already have built and strengthening it”


Sweets which never melt..

James ”Dear.. very surprising that you still remain cold.. even after being persistently following up with you”

Nancy ”I have informed you.. am not interested.. need time.. have exhausted all my money.. no bootstrap funds left.. so exploring what next to run the company”

James ”Hey.. I have US$10000, take it, be with me”

Nancy ”thanks.. but giving money and trying to seek my love.. not accepted”

James ”you are mistaken..”

Nancy remembers a new year incident few years back..

Nancy was dancing merrily with Rob, her boy friend.. when he decides to suddenly declare love for her..

Nancy surprised.. and soon they get into an intimate relation only to discover that he had just created a story around self to woe her..

James shakes her up..

James ”come out of past.. I am surely not that kind”

Nancy smiles..

Nancy ”heart gets colder.. with each bad relation.. so it will take time to melt”

James ‘I will be there.. in cold weather.. waiting for you with a sweater in hand, muffler on head and boots in legs.. as love always hopes that even snowy mountains can melt with ample sunshine’
