Dangerous Domar 5 - a fast paced action packed story

About the 'Domar' series
'Domar' is a Spanish word which means 'to train' or 'to master'. The series started as a satirical series but from the fourth installment I turned it into a semi-serious fast paced action thriller. The series contains highly exaggerated action episodes and it involved lot of hard work to convert my creativity into the words, for example, the burj khalifa action sequence in the first installment took me nearly six hours to put it in words. You can experience the other side of my creativity with this series.

Each and every installment has its specialty and I'm listing it below.

Highlights of Domar series:
Dangerous Domar: The First Installment - The Burj Khalifa 100th floor action sequence; the Grand Canyon helicopter chase sequence.
The Return of Dangerous Domar: The Second Installment - The confrontation scene between CBI chief officer Hari Prakash and ex intelligent agent Domar; the stratosphere space shuttle chase sequence.
Rise of Domar: The Third Installment - Introduction scene of Domar (the tsunami sequence); the adrenaline pumping car chase sequence during the pre climax; interesting never-saw-it-coming twist at the climax.
Dangerous Domar 4: The Fourth Installment - KTX (bullet train) chase sequence; pre climax action episode; climax twist.

I'm mentioning the gist of all the four installments below so that you can directly start reading this instead of going back and reading it from the first installment. But, I assure you that you'll surely consider reading the first four installments once after you complete this.

The Domar series:
Dangerous Domar - A newly recruited intelligence officer 'Agent Domar' sets out on an international mission to retrieve a pen drive from the enemies of the country who stole the nation's confidential information.
The Return of Dangerous Domar -  An arrest warrant has been issued on Domar after the outbreak of some mysterious deaths across the globe. The case has been assigned to the CBI and now, it is the duty of CBI chief officer Hari Prakash to catch hold of Domar and put him behind the bars.
ROD: Rise of Domar - The story is set in the United States of America where Professor Domar along with Officer Hari Prakash and a team of four students has to safeguard the nuclear weapon designed by Domar before the Russian enemy Karolek Romochka takes it away from them. 
Dangerous Domar 4 - The story begins at Jamaica from where Domar and Hari sets out on their journey to Seoul to catch hold of the international terrorist Bong-Cha.

About 'Dangerous Domar 5'
The story begins from where the fourth installment ended. Hari and Domar have just 46 hours to save their country from a terrorist attack. Will they succeed in their mission? Experience some of the most brilliantly exaggerated and never before visualized action episodes.

It took me nearly four months and plenty of sleepless nights to frame the scenes and to put it in words. Have some patience and allot some time to read it as the story is bit lengthy and I assure you that it will be worth your time spent on this read. English is not my first language, so bear with me until I work on my vocabulary. 

Go ahead and experience the thrill of a roller-coaster ride. Do share your genuine comments after reading the story. I believe that the story entertains you to the fullest. Happy reading!

Raju and the kid

Raju took out his cell phone and dialed his friend Krishna’s number as he stood outside the Orion mall along with a kid.
‘Hello?’ it was Krishna’s voice from the other side.
‘Hey Krish, sorry to disturb you. Are you still at home?’ asked Raju.
‘Yeah, I’m about to leave to work. Tell me, what’s so urgent?’  
‘Dude, I forgot my debit card. It will be there on my table. Could you please pick it up and bring that to Orion mall?’ 
‘Orion mall? Well, I’ll bring it in fifteen minutes.’
‘Yeah, thanks dude. I’ll be waiting at the entrance,’ said Raju who then hung up the phone.

Raju stood next to his bike that was parked at the entrance of the mall. The kid who stood next to Raju remained completely silent. Ten minutes passed and Raju decided to break the silence.
‘Hey kiddo, what’s your name?’ 
The kid lifted his head and looking at Raju he replied, ‘Murari.’ 
‘Where do you live?’
Raju then noted Krishna riding his bike to the entrance of the mall. He then waved his hand and Krishna drove his bike towards him. He halted his bike, took out the debit card and handed it to Raju. As Krishna was about to leave, Raju stopped him and asked him to park his bike. 
‘Hey, I’m getting late,’ said Krishna after he saw Raju taking the bike keys with him.
‘Come on in,’ said Raju as he walked into the mall, along with the kid.

Enigma : A Tale Of Mystery - Trailer

Hello readers,

Last week when I was chatting with my blogger friend Meera from A Rat's Nibble, she shared her idea of a story that was actually her 'dream' and she was in lack of words to pen it down into a proper story. After listening to the interesting dream, I took it as a challenge and decided to write it down as a full length story. Meera instantly agreed with my challenge and she was thoroughly convinced when she read the first draft. Later we both sat down and completed the rest of the story, and it will be released as 'short series' in her blog A Rat's Nibble

Take a sneak peek into the trailer that has been released: Enigma : A Tale Of Mystery - Trailer

Hope you all enjoy reading this short series.

A short story without a title

‘Hey, you want anything else?’ she asked offering me a glass of water. 
‘No, no, this is fine,’ I said and I sipped some water. 
‘How did you find me?’ she asked.
I replied her with a smile, ‘it’s not a big deal to find you.’ 
Meanwhile her granny walked into the room. It looked like she just got up from her sleep as she walked like a zombie. Wearing her spectacles, the granny asked her, ‘who is this guy?’ 
She walked to her granny, whispered something in her ears and then all I could see was granny getting back quietly into her room. 
‘What did you say?’ I asked her after she came back and sat before me.
‘I said that you’re an adventurer who traveled miles to meet his long lost girlfriend.’ She then put her arms around my neck and asked, ‘would you like to go out with me?’
‘That would be wonderful,’ I replied.
She got up and said as she walked towards her room, ‘give me five minutes.’ 

Five minutes later
We were getting down the stairs holding each other’s hands. Once we reached the parking lot, I realized that I forgot the car keys back at the house.
‘Oh shit!’ 
‘What happened?’ 
‘I left the keys, my mobile and my wallet at your house.’ 
‘No worries, I’ll get it.’
‘No, give me the keys. I’ll get it.’

It's a small world!

The flight was delayed for three hours and those were the most annoying three hours for Bratindra, who was waiting there at the airport to board his flight to Delhi. He sat there restless listening to the crowd. The noise was indeed irritating to his ears as most of his co-passengers were involved in a loud verbal fight with the airport authorities. He was not willing to participate as he felt that it was meaningless to go and fight with them for unknown reasons. He believed that the flight was going to take off sooner or later and hence he decided to wait for it. That time he had an unusual encounter with someone whom he wanted to meet for a long time. He got up from his seat as soon as he saw that person and walked to him. On seeing him, that person dropped his bags on the floor and gave him a warm and tight hug.
‘It’s been a long time and I was longing to meet you,’ Bratindra said. 
It’s a small world, isn’t it?’ the person said. 
‘Yes, indeed it is. How come you’re here?’ 
‘Am I not allowed to be here?’ 
‘Ha ha! No, I mean, where are you heading to?’ 
‘I’m heading to Mumbai.’
‘Well,’ he looked at the time and said, ‘all the flights are delayed. Let’s talk over a cup of tea. What do you say?’
They talked for an hour and then Bratindra’s flight was ready to depart. He gave that person a hug and bid him goodbye. Bratindra then boarded his flight.

The year I became a 'writer'

Right from my childhood I always had a passion towards story telling. I used to spend at least an hour a day thinking about various stories that I keep framing in my mind. At that age I did not know how to transform my thoughts into action. Frankly speaking, I did not get any motivation or encouragement from people during those days. I am very fond of narrating stories to people and make them entertain for a certain period of time. Back at school, whenever I was about to narrate a story to my friends they would reply 'please I have no patience for this' or they would say 'that's so boring'. Boring? I mean without even listening to it? Ridiculous, isn't it? I've experienced a lot like this. Just because me being a silent, punctual, rank holder doesn't mean that I am not capable of entertaining people. The same thing repeated during my college days where I experienced the weird 4 years of my life. There was no motivation at college and trust me it was worse than my school. Being an engineering college, staffs aim at 100% results and students doesn't even care because engineering failed to interest everyone. Again, being a silent, punctual, and a decent academic record holder at college doesn't make me a nerd. When people spent their quality time on flirting with girls, I utilized that quality time in my life to improve my creativity. My brain did not stop thinking. I kept on framing stories every now and then, but still I longed for a chance to narrate something to someone. But towards the end of my college days I had a lifetime chance of narrating a story to one of the guy who was supposed to be the rank holder of the class. I should thank him a lot because it was a dream come true for me as I was very much longing to narrate something to someone right from my school days.

Ssh...! Where are your manners?

Last year, I wrote a post Are we really dignified? stating that most of the people living in the society lack basic manners. Yes, it is indeed true and it is still continuing forever. So far I have never seen anyone greet politely at the beginning of the day. They behave like 'why am I alive today?' and that's so irritating. As far as I have seen there are many people who still don't realize how a polite morning greeting could do wonders. 

I would like to pen down an incident witnessed by me almost every time I visit a movie theatre. Last week I happened to watch this movie Dhoom 3 at a decent multiplex located near my residence. There I noticed a guy who sat one row before me totally involved in his whatsapp conversation such that he didn't even realize that the first song is almost over. The display light was irritating my eyes and I was able to tolerate that only for a certain level. After a couple of minutes he put his cell phone back in his packet before I said anything to him. Incidents like these often spoil my movie watching experience. Also there are few people who don't even realize why they come to watch Hollywood movies even if they don't understand anything in it. They come over to theatre and start chatting with each other causing irritation to movie lovers like me who except pin drop silence while watching an English movie.
