We all love stories regardless of our age. While I was a kid I cherished the story time. Because of two reasons, only dad says interesting stories, mom stories are all creative but not that interesting. And I only get to hear stories from him once in a while because he was working and staying in different part of the city then.
My brother and I would be waiting for the story time and its almost a happy ritual for both of us .We would wait until dinner gets over then march to terrace with rolled up "pai" (the thin mattress made out of weeds I guess), pillows, bed sheets and a jug of water. My brother and I lie very close to him on each side, cuddled up because we are very scared of sleeping on open air and darkness. I still remember the cool wind, the sound it made while blowing on tree leaves . Lying on the flat surface of terracce and looking up in dark sky filled with stars was quite a magical experience. Our house was on a not-so-developed corner of the chennai city, so not much of light from surrounding which made it pitch black and stars more glittery. These days one should go to remote village or bare land to see the actual beauty of sky.
Sometimes my brother and I pressure him to tell the same story again, sometimes we fight on which one's favourite story he should tell first. I keep counting stars, looking at the formations when I listen to story and mostly sleep half way through it. I remember only couple of them till the end. The one about 1000 parrots princes and one about hanuman's adventure of gobbling the sun because it looked like orange.
Today I would like to show you all a story. Its high time for us to know this because its about us.Its quite interesting cum horror story filled with twist and turns.The magical ending of this story depends on each one of us. Take your time, browse through this link and witness it. It might take couple of mins to buffer, believe me its worth the wait!
This is my little something for the my beloved Gaia on this day, to create awareness of her call to save her. Plus blog spot says its my 51st post :)
