5 Shades of Life!

Disclaimer - Fiction! The images have been created by  me.


So finally my board exams are over. I can breathe and walk freely anywhere. I had been toiling hard days and night since last few months because of my board exams. It was 6 pm and I was strolling at Marine Drives to enjoy Mumbai at its best. As I walked, I saw different people - all from different age groups and background. I ceremoniously walked along the footpath and observed everyone. I rested for a while and my eyes witnessed a man mouthing bad words at his wife. He was infuriated and slapped her in front of everyone. The poor woman succumbed to his anger and was at the receiving end. People waited, watched and left. Such was the fate of the poor woman who lived in the city of dreams. I turned around to see a young couple kissing and hugging each other. There was so much love that they didn't seem to be distracted by the things happening around them. Sooner, I saw a little boy of 10 - bereaved and aggrieved, sobbing and lamenting the loss of his beloved mother. As I moved, I saw a teenage girl distributing sweets to everyone. She had secured top rank in IIT Engineering entrance exam. She was jubilant and exhilarated. I stood there firmly pondering on certain things. I overheard two young boys of around 14 discussing their marks. One of them was scared of going home as his father might bash him for scoring less mark in his semester exam. There was a constant fear in his mind. I sat on the wall and mulled over all these things that happened in front of me. It was strange.

Later that night, I decided to talk to God. No! I am not insane. I am not kidding. You might be thinking how? Yes, I have a special application called - WeChat! There is a feature called 'drift bottle' in WeChat. In Drift Bottle, we record our message in form of text or voice into a bottle and throw it in an imaginary sea. If anyone receives the message, they reply to our messages. It was during those days that I met God. 

Me - Almighty Father! You here? Pls reply me asap. 

I recorded my message and threw the bottle inside the virtual sea. I soon got a reply.













Almighty Father introduced me to a group chat  named '5 Shades of Life' where I met the masters who controlled emotions in life. Here is the chat conversation below.















At the end of the group chat, I was a satisfied man. All my answers to God had been answered. I always used to believe that human emotions were biased and hence extreme anger and sorrow came into life. Now I learned from Almighty Father that  Anger, Happiness, Sorrow, Love and Fear is a perfect ingredient of a very complete life. I advocate his views. So the 5 Shades of life are - Anger, Sorrow, Fear, Happiness and Love. So a pinch of everything in correct proportion can make life beautiful. :-)

  13. very well written...and the images give it a real feel
    it started very nicely, but the explanation part i feel could have been a more elaborate
    so that your apologies could have been justified...you kind of hurried through that
    but overall i truly enjoyed reading it:)
    all the best !!!

    1. Thanks Karan - My intention was to make the chat conv real like (they call it End to End scenario in IT) and I wanted to keep it straight to the point..Didn't want to drag it and thats why you feel that it was hurried. Thanks a lot Karan for the feedback :)
