[Independence Day Special][Short Story] Pis-Aller

  "He that studieth revenge keepeth his own wounds green, which otherwise would heal and do well"-John Milton He was in his nineties now, slow, fragile and nearing death. Still, every day he used to wake up at 6 in the morning and stare outside the window, blankly. They said when he was young, he was agile, healthy and quick, no one knew what his profession was, but he did retire rich at the age of fifty-five. His only son used to visit the old rooms twice a day, 'Baba, I request you again. Come with us to the big house. What is there in this dump?' his son used to question. 'I can't leave now, there is one final task left son,' he used to smile, 'One final task.' Baba had sent all the furniture from the room to the new house but kept himself a bed and the jewel beaded box. 'No one has ever removed the box from under the diwan since last 20 years, baba,' the daughter-in-law use to question, 'Don't let the servants, but please let me

What makes us believe in something - The idea behind Ragnarok


The idea behind Ragnarok, my upcoming science fiction satire, came exactly three years ago when I was talking to a friend. This friend of mine (who has explicitly asked me not to name him) was harping on and on about how religion is necessary for faith and belief. That put the idea of God in my head. For as long as I remember, I was an agnostic about the concept of God. I never faced any crisis that would make me look for a higher power or ask for forgiveness.

But my friend put the idea that there has to be someone out there looking out for us. That was the definitive moment when the idea popped into my head. See, here is the thing, we all want to believe that someone out there is looking out for us. Everyone, even an atheist, at one point in time want to look up and say, hey this is not my problem, this is yours.

Here is the idea, if everyone (or most of us) talk to someone all powerful to solve their problem, what kind of pressure are we putting on that one person? And what if, he is as limited as our imagination? 

The idea of God is personal to everyone, we all choose to believe in someone. When I set to write my own God, I had to believe in something. Having never believed in anything, it was a difficult proposition. That set me on a journey to read as many religious dogmas as I could. I met some incredible people who made some incredible points and slowly a picture of what I could believe in emerged. 

The idea behind Ragnarok is massive and it certainly isn't conventional. It is not a story that has a protagonist and an antagonist, not in conventional term. It is not a story where a hero battles against all odds to defeat the villain.

Ragnarok is about life, about the idea called HUMAN BEING. Ragnarok is about the ultimate test of faith. And finally as the actors on this stage will tell you, Ragnarok is about proving ourself what it takes to remain Human in terms of extreme duress.

What will you do when everything you know is about to end and the thing responsible for the ending is the one thing you believe in?

So as I said before, get ready for the journey of epic proportions through space and time. And what's more awesome? Before the epic launch, the book is available online at a discounted price. If there is a best time to buy it, it is now.
