Pirin Mountains, Bulgaria
Пирин
Twice in a month, Viktor heads to one of the dense forests of Bulgaria to exercise. He always considered nature as a perfect gymnasium. As usual, he got into the section of the forest that had thick trees which were a good platform for him to perform pull-ups. He placed his gear aside, took off his jerkin and placed it on his bag. He wore a thick military cargo pant and a light green vest. He held on to the tree with both his hands and then pulled himself upwards. As he got to the 230th pull-up, the leaves crackling noise distracted him. He stopped for a moment and concentrated on the surrounding as he hung on to the tree. The crackling sound stopped. He waited for couple more moments before he resumed his pull-ups. Twenty seconds later, he sensed something else. His reflexes were too brisk that he instantly caught the arrow that headed his way from his left. It was a Tranquilizer Arrow. Holding the arrow in his left hand, Viktor slowly let himself on the ground. He then concentrated on his left. He heard the leaves crackling noise again from his left, but it was gentle this time. He headed towards the direction of the crackling noise. He then instantly moved at a great speed, as though hurled by a catapult, towards the bush that lay to his right. He then grabbed a man by his neck with his legs, twisted it so hard that the man's neck turned backward leaving him dead instantly. Viktor stood there holding the Tranquilizer Arrow. He noticed three other men revealing themselves from the bush. All the three men surround him. He did not think twice. He immediately swung the Tranquilizer Arrow to the man who stood right in front of him. He then took the shotgun from the holster of the dead man and shot the man who stood towards his left twice - passing one bullet through his chest and one through his forehead. All these happened in less than 2 seconds. He then sensed some panic from the third man who was standing towards his right. He ran towards the third man and jumped on to him. He then put the shotgun into his mouth. They both heard another noise. It was a roar. 
'You know what that is?' asked Viktor. 
The man who had the shotgun pointed in his mouth nodded a no. 
'That's a Panther. You know what happens when a Panther roars?' As Viktor explained this, they both could sense the footsteps of the Panther approaching them. He continued, 'when the Panther roars, even the brave hunter who has come all the way to kill it will go hiding.' The footsteps approach faster and Viktor continued, 'I am not a hunter, I am a killer.' He shot the man and then looked up to the fast-approaching Panther and shot at it twice.

Thank you for not dating



This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda.



Some might say that it's wrong for a girl to date a guy before marriage. If you ask my opinion on that fact I would brand it as "absolute absurdity". Trust me, this absurdity still prevails in most parts of my country and it is worse with the current generation. 

The problem with the current generation is, we, as the next gen species, are exposed to a wide variety of cultures across the World (thanks to the internet, access to the information is now made easy) and we have an option to choose and adapt the culture that suits our expectations (oh well, except the North Koreans). The adaptability feature comes with a vulnerability as an add-on, like a virus destroying the computer. If a person picks a certain culture and decides to adopt that, he/she should first do a compatibility check. If that particular culture is compatible with the society he lives in, then the adaptability factor is handled with ease. 

Now map the above explanation with this simple analogy - if you have a motherboard that supports a DDR3 RAM, you cannot buy a DDR2 RAM and ask the motherboard to adapt to it. You definitely need to opt for a DDR3 RAM or the only other option you've is to change the motherboard that fits the DDR2 RAM. You can change the RAM as per the motherboard's requirement but if you want to change the motherboard, it incurs additional cost. Society is the motherboard and the culture is the RAM. You cannot change the society unless you're a rebel who really want to bring in a change that each and every person out there is convinced with (this is the cost involved). The society accepts the culture only if it is compatible with it.

Fall of Domar

December 19 | 19:15 EST
JFK International Airport, New York
Attention, dear passengers. The boarding is now open for the Swiss Airlines flight number LX23 bound for Geneva. Passengers are requested to proceed to the E gates. 
The announcement was made and Hari had a worried look on his face. Noticing this, Domar said, 'you look a little worried. I haven't seen you carry that look before.' 
'Yeah man, I have a bad feeling. Is it mandatory for you to attend this meeting?' asked Hari.
'Well, it's the United Nations and I gotta do what I gotta do,' said Domar.
Hari hugged Domar and said, 'you better take care of yourself, man. I won't be there to keep a watch on you.' 

Domar put on his jacket and backpack and made his move towards the E gates while Hari stood there and watched him leave. Hari, on noticing Domar disappearing in the crowd, marched towards the exit gate. Exiting the airport, he walked past the loading zone and got into the parking zone. Reaching his car, Hari had another sense of bad feeling. He looked at his watch. It was analog and it was a black Hermes Arceau maxi. The watch showed the time as 19:40. He opened the door of his Nissan Armada SUV and got into it. He looked at the airport terminal and then drove towards the freeway. 

December 20 | 06:40 EST
Bedford-Stuyvesant, New York
The alarm, after a couple of snoozes, woke Hari up from a not-so-pleasant sleep. He reached for his spectacles he placed on the side draw and wore those on. He then reached for the television remote and turned it on. What he saw next shook him up. He heard the news reporter say the following,
It is a horrifying event. The death toll is 35. Not even a single passenger who was onboard survived the crash. 
Hari switched the channel to Fox news. The headlines scrolling went like this,
Swiss Airlines LX23 bound for Geneva was crashed 4 hours post its departure, approximately 400 miles east of Nuuk, Greenland.  
The news startled Hari. He sat down on the bed with sweat all over his face. He was able to feel his pulse rate rising. He got up, walked to the dining table, and fetched himself some water. Gulping down some of the water, he threw the glass aside leaving the glass pieces shatter all over the floor. He screamed deep from his throat. The scream was loud that it startled his neighbors living 121 yards away from his house.
