Once upon a time, there was a nomad tribe. Their leader had a book of guidance and a map to reach the ultimate place of bounty, pleasure and tranquility. On his deathbed, tribal leader gave book of guidance to his son and commanded him to live by the code of book and follow the right part as shown in the book and continue journey towered place of ultimate bliss! After the Leader of tribe died, his son become new leader. He buried his father and after few days of mourning, he continues the journey towards unknown and unseen world.
New leader also had an 18 years old son; he himself was 50 years old. There were around 200 more people flowing them. While travelling, they stop at some location for few weeks and perform different types of juggling and magic acts to earn living and then again move on in search of Place of Bliss!
Twenty years passed, they cover 90% of the journey, the new leader on his deathbed instructed his son same thing which his father instructed him. On that Rex-the son of new leader asked politely “ Father I will surely follow your instruction, but my loving father just tell me if we have any proof or evidence that the book we are following and the path which we are traversing is correct?” On his question father get angry and shouted on the son “Since the time of our forefather we are following this book, do you think they were wrong? Only you are intelligent. He continued, “This is a true book wherein there is nothing wrong written. We must take all peoples to that place of eternal bliss.” Son replied, “Father I believe you, please do not be angry. I promise you that I will go to that place.
After death of his father, Rex continued journey towards blessed place. He was ambitious and in hurry to reach there. Without taking any stopover, moved day and night. Few people leave him, but he was confident about his destination. On the way, some people stopped him and asked where he is going. He told them and asked them to come with him. However, those people laughed and told him there is no such place in the vicinity. Determined, Rex continued his journey.
Finally, he reached near to the destination. The same location as shown in map as blessed place. In his joy and delight, he started running towards it. There was a cliff and it was not possible to see beyond it. While running, he started dreaming about blessed place. Book mentioned it as most beautiful and wonderful place where no one will die or become old. Everything will be in abundance. There will not be any suffering and….
All of a sudden, he realized that there is no ground below his feel! He tried to make balance but it was too late. He was falling in the deep valley. He shouted-Save me! However, there was no one to save him. Many of those who follow him blindly also fell down with him. It was a very deep valley. While falling down he was cursing his father and that out dated book, which his ancestors were following. He was too late to realize all this. He though if he would have given heed to those passerby who told him not to follow this path he might not be in this condition. All his hard work go in vain. He saw pointed rocky ground beneath. He struck the ground, his body divided in to pieces, and he died.
This is a fake story. However, it contain a very important and powerful message. That message is:
Do not follow even your Parents Blindly. They can be wrong! At the end, you receive what you believe. You have time until your death to find and follow true path. Choose wisely not blindly!
I was ready for surprise attack, as we reached near guards, Jubisco jumped on them like the Superman, and he was flying parallel to the ground. In a split second, I make a somersault and kicked a guard looking like Kate and snatch her gun. I started shooting and use one dead body to cover up myself, all my frustration, converted into anger. Everything happened so fast that I didn’t have clear memory. When Nandani stopped me, there were more than a dozen guards dead bodies and robots parts lying on the ground.
We entered the air base, hiding behind the building structure we manage to reach up to an aircraft – looking like a chopper. Jubisco was moving towards their base office, before I asked him he stopped and said I aircraft no, I want pilot , read mind. In last two years, Jubisco learned our language by reading Nandani mind. However, he was not expert in speaking. He wanted to capture a pilot to read his mind as he does not know to fly chopper. He knew only to fly space ship in which he was abducted. I told him that I will go inside because he is very big and will be easily seen, He should wait with nandani and I will kidnapped a pilot. Nandani was angry on my decision. First time I saw love for me in her eyes. I hugged him I promise to her to come back safely. I remind my promise to take her home safely. She has tears in her eyes. I kissed her on her forehead and wiped her tears. Jubisco was focussing on something and when I started moving towards base office, he pointed his finger in other direction. Go… and take right. Toilet pilot. It took me few minutes to solve his puzzle while moving in his pointed direction. As I entered inside the building, there was a corridor. I entered the corridor and as I move further, I saw a door. I try to push open the door but it was locked from inside. Someone shouted from inside in Radian language. I quietly wait outside. As door was open I hit her hard. She fell on ground unconscious. She was heavy, I dragged her in corridor. I was thinking how I will take her to the chopper. As I opened the door, Jubisco was standing outside and two guards were lying on the floor. Before I asked him about Nandini, he said “She is safe”.
Chopper was little small for Jubisco, but he manage to fit inside. He wakes up the pilot to read his mind. I was holding her hand behind her back. Nandini was on front seat helping Jubisco as co-pilot. As jubisco started the chopper, I saw many Radians guards running towards our Chopper. I shouted, Let’s go, take it up! Chopper blades were still not moving with full speed to create full lift to raise the Chopper up. Radians were coming nearer and nearer…

We entered in a building looking like prison. Kate talk in her language with some officers and they hand over me to a Robot looking somewhat similar to Oreo. Oreo-1 took me through a corridor. On both sides of corridors, there were lockup with small window. Different kind of animals was looking from the small window. They locked me to a prison and left. I look out of my small window and could not believe my eyes. There was a barrack in front of me and two beautiful eyes were looking at me. She was a girl. She asked me Are you Indian? At that moment, many things were running in my mind, I ignored her question and asked her “How long since you are here?” two years, she replied.
What! I said shockingly and continued, “ they told me they would send me to earth very soon after conducting experiments on me.” And you believed them, she responded angrily. I said, “Do I had a choice, I do not know what they will do with me, moreover, if I go against them, they will surely kill me. Did you try to escape from here? I asked next question. Yes, we tried to escape. We were three persons abducted together around two years back. They captured me shortly after we tried to escape, injured one, and killed the third. They tortured two of us for more than a month. Raj, the one who was injured died and since then I am here like an experiment mouse. Every week they took me out for experiments and then throw me here. I want death, but death also forgets me. I tried to console her “Hay do not give up, I will take you out from here. What is your name? She replied in sobbing voice “ Nandini Sharma”. I am Ahmer Khan, from USA, I introduced myself to her.
A guard interrupted us, don’t talk, and sit inside. We moved inside our cell. After 15mins I call her name in low voice, Nandini, are you there? No I left to Earth, came the reply. In last two years she went through so much suffering and loneliness that now she was not afraid of anything. She accepted her fate. After meeting with me she seems little relaxed. I call her near the window to talk as no guard was around. So tell me more about this place, I inquired. Nandani Said, “This is a military base, here they do all the confidential business. Attached with it is air base, if we can reach there we can run from here. Do you know flying aircraft, she asked me. I said, No, especially Aliens aircraft, not at all. I know one pilot here, he is from another planet. His name is Jubisco, Informed Nandani. How we will communicate with him? I asked curiously. Nandani explained to me that Jubisco knows telepathy, and he might be listening to our though at this moment. Every week, they took some of us for testing and check-ups, we have to wait till we both go together. By telepathy we will inform Jubisco our plan and no wall or metal can hold Jubisco. He is from the planet which has 5 times more gravity then Radon. However, he alone cannot escape as he needs a co-pilot to fly Radians spaceship. It was a dangerous plan, but we were ready to take our chances even if death is waiting for us on next door. After meeting with Nandani I was sure, Radians will never send me to earth again, If I will not try to escape I will die here. Fear never stopped me from doing anything, but I wanted to take Nandani safely. She was beautiful. Her wide lovely eyes pierce deep in my heart and I decided to spend my rest of life with her, weather on earth or on Radon. It was love at first sight. She was beauty with brain.
Three weeks went, but unfortunately we never had a chance to go together. Physically, I had many problems but mentally I was flying around in love. I and Nandani became good friends, we keep talking for hours. We forget our pain in each other’s company. First time in my life i realise beauty of love. Its magical.
Finally, that day came when our wish comes true. We both were taken together for our testing. All hopes were on Jubisco. Nandani and I look towards his face and he moved his face in affirmation. As we reached near guard on the gate, I attached on one guard and took his weapon, which looks like a gun and fire on another guard. In the meantime, Nandani took the key and open the door of Jubisco cell. Jubisco broke his hand cuffs and came out. One guard caught me from back and my gun fell far away. Jubisco came near me and he broke skull of Robo-guard . Two more guard came running towards us, Jubisco catch them with neck and colliede their heads together. I shouted, Nandani ,Which way to go. Come with me this side, said Nandani. We all start running towards air base. Jubisco was seven feet high muscular male. However, due to low gravity, he was able to make long jumps. As we reached near to the door of airbase, there were several armed guard and Radians waiting for us. They already knew about our escape. I gave my gun to Nandini and told her to wait for us. Jubisco, cover me behind himself as any bullet cannot harm his thick skin.
To be continued…
I was tired and reached to a level of emotional break down, I wanted to weep and cry loudly. But I control myself. I wanted to prove to them that I am not a danger else they might put me in some confined space or kill me. Kate and Eve ware playing with her daughter and Oreo was standing near me and looking at me. I wanted to run away, but where will I go? This Thought stopped me. Kate told me, it was a night-time and Oreo will show me my room. With tears in my eyes I asked Kate “Will I ever be able to see my planet again?” Kate replied “sure, don’t worry soon you will be sent back, now you go and sleep. You look tired”.
Oreo took me to another room, except entrance door and AC opening, there were no opening in whole room. Surprisingly, room was empty, there were no furniture. I asked Oreo “will I sleep on the floor”. Oreo went in and press some buttons and a folding bed came out of the floor. Similarly more furniture starts unfolding. Within two minutes time, whole room was full of furniture. He asked my hand to check my temperature. He set room temperature accordingly and gave me remote to control temperature. He further told me to remove my mask as long as I am inside the room. Sensors can set oxygen level based on my metabolic rate.
I was feeling like a mouse in a golden cage. I was so tired or there was something in the air that as I lay down on bed I fell asleep. It was late in the morning, when Oreo came to wake me up. He gave me wet towel to wipe clean myself and showed me washroom. My clothes were dirty and my groin was covered in bandage. There was another towel in bathroom, so I wrap it around my waist after cleaning and relieving myself. I went out in towel as there was no cloth to wear. Radians, as they call themselves used to cover only their abdomen as it has very sensitive skin.
When I came out, Kate was going somewhere. I told her that I am hungry. She replied “we eat roasted insects; if you can eat that you are welcome. Else you can eat energy pills; it will remove your hunger and give you energy for whole day. I settled for pills. Eve gave me pills and informed me to go with Oreo in another room for tests. Oreo took me to another room and asked me to lie down on a machine bench. I was afraid but without any choice. There was no known place to go. I was on their mercy. As I lay down, I start feeling sleepy. When I wake up, my hands had two bandages and my thighs were paining. Oreo gave me some pain killers which reduce my pain. After that he took my psychological tests. When I came out of room, Eve was talking to someone in her language and she points her finger towards me to sit down. She rotated the screen and continues to talk. I can see her eyes getting wet and her voice modulates while talking. As she finished her conversation, I asked her in very polite way about whom she was talking to. Eve took a sigh and start telling her story, “She is my mother, and she doesn’t want to leave her home planet. Only small population is remaining there. They are living in controlled environment. Life is tough there and dangerous for new-born babies. That’s why Kate does not want me to go there with my daughter and I do not want to go without my daughter.” There was a spark in my eyes. I thought she can help me in escaping as she is very emotional and soft-hearted. I told her my story and how I miss my mother and she was able to relate to my story. She promises me to talk to Kate and convince her to send me to Earth earliest possible. It was evening time when Kate came in. She was in a hurry. She went directly to test rooms and viewed my test results. When she came out she was not in good mood. Khan, you will be shifted to other place tomorrow. Now go to your room. While going to my room, I overheard Kate and Eve shouting on each other. As I closed the door, I started feeling sleepy.
Next morning I wake up early. Oreo was already standing inside my room. This time he has some cloth for me. It was a loose garment like a gown. Kate was waiting for me when I came out of my room. “Let’s go, our government want to keep you at safe place” said Kate. Eve was feeling sorry for me. Kate gave me a cloth to cover my face. We ran to elevator. As we reached to the ground, her car was parked very near to the door of elevator. We sit inside. Kate put car in flying mode and it became a helicopter. Within short time, we reached to some government building. As I enter inside with Kate I saw heavy security all around. I asked Kate what is this place? But she remains silent. Building looks like a prison. I knew my life is in danger but there was no way to escape.

Extreme sports were my hobby. Biking, Tracking, Skydiving and kick boxing were few things I enjoyed in free time. I was an Alpha male, that’s why they might choose me. I was 25 and yet bachelor with Electronics and communication Engineering degree. I was a kind of person who does not believe in marriages partially because of my parents whom I always saw fighting on small issues. My Father was an Indian American and my mother was an American. My Grandfather came to USA when my father was 15 years old. Soon he brings whole family to USA. He was a chef in a famous hotel. My Father was the eldest son and after finishing his education he start working as Micro-Biologist in a private company. He was an Indian Muslim married to a Catholic Christian. Due to this reason, my Grandfather disowned him and returned to India. My Grandfather was afraid that his other 4 children might follow the foot step of my Father.
I am the only son of my parents, but my parents were busy in their work. My mother was a social activist and war reporter working with Reuters. She loved me a lot but never has time for me. Our maid jenny takes care for me in absence of my Parents. My Father wanted my mother to be a house wife but she was not born to be captured. She never gave importance to his advice.
I was busy in myself when Kate asked me something which I was not able to understand. Pardon, I said. She replied “What is your name?” I said Khan, My name is Khan. There was no necessity or reason to tell her my full name as i was the only Khan on this planet. I realise that I am far away from my world in a hostile planet and should be careful. My mind start awakening. I was constantly thinking how to escape but there was no where to run. After 10 min. drive we reached near a building hardly two story high. I asked her, no skyscraper? Instead of replying she pressed some button of elevator and she pointed towards the button and asked me “ do you know what is written on this button”. I said, No. On that she informed me, it is 150 in your language. I live on 150th basement and there are total 230 basements below ground floor. I was looking at her with surprise, and then I inquired, why you live underground? Is it not difficult to manage ventilation? Kate informs me that their Sun radiates more harmful radiation.100 years ago, they shifted to this planet as their original planet lost atmosphere. However, since this planet is near to sun, it receives more radiation and more energy. Kate further told me that their sun is in last stage unlike our sun which is in middle age. In a million year it will start expending and engulf the planet. Kate continues, that is why we are searching for new planets for life. Your earth has more nitrogen in atmosphere, which is harmful to our body and it is and too far away, which is not good for us. Hence, we need to find another planet near to us. As lift stopped, we come out in a big hall, brighter than day light. It was like an entire city. There were escalators to move around from lift to each door and beyond.
Kate already informed Eve about me, she was reluctant to keep me in her home, but when Kate convinces her that I not dangerous, she agrees to keep me in her home.
They were evolved from reptiles, as we were believed to be evolved from chimps. Similar to chameleon, they have ability for changing skin colour. They also had a tale, which they use as a third hand. Their hands and legs were shorter than humans; still they can stand upright on two feet and can also crawl on the walls if required.
As they were evolved from reptiles, they do not have enlarged breast like human female for feeding milk to their babies. They were researching on me and I was researching on them.
While in the home, I saw their baby, it was cute and adorable. One more member was there in the house, which later I come to know was a Robot. His name was Oreopendalomena-S16, but I call him Oreo. These peoples already created SAI- the super artificial Intelligence. For security reasons, SAI was not connected to their internet. Oreo has job specific AI installed and it was programmed for household works and for taking care of babies. Kate installed new program in Oreo to understand my language and to keep eye on me. After that she removed my hand cuffs. I was feeling thirsty, so I requested for water. Oreo bring for me water. Kate told me that water is not available in abundance and I have to recycle water. She further told me that she do not need much water. They can survive for several days without food or water. Eve was not happy to see me, and she starts whispering in Kate ear, Kate denied whatever Eve said to her saying “he is not dangerous and Oreo will keep an eye on him”. She continued “After few days we will shift him to another facility. Till then I need to study his behaviour and submit my report.”
I was missing my family and earth. I never felt that way when I was on Earth. We never think beyond our cities and countries. Now sitting on another planet makes me think about my own planet, humanity and our fate as an intelligent species. Though, their population is less but they are far advance from us.
There are trillions and trillions of stars in our universe. Around those stars revolves planets like planets in our solar system. Scientist believes that there are many earth like planets in our universe far away from us. We cannot even imagine what kind of life might be flourishing there. This story is of a planet very far away from us and life originated on this planet in slightly different way. Fifteen years back an Alien ship abducted me and took me to different world through worm hole for experimentation. On this planet, transformation from asexual reproduction to sexual reproduction never happened. Thus, even the most intelligent species too, equivalent to human on earth, only have all-female population. Parthenogenesis -a form of asexual reproduction is the only way for reproduction here and thus only females are found on whole planet. To simplify things, I will tell you the story in earthly manner.
Compare to earth, their civilisation is 100 years advance. Kate, an astronaut, was the non-breeding partner who lived with Eve, her breeding partner. They have one daughter Alice. Kate and Eva were together from last 5 years but only two-year back they committed to live together and had a baby. Though both are female and identical, but still emotionally very different. Some peoples like to breed and some don’t. Those who breed play a wife role taking care of house and other things. Since all are females, no fear of rape and sex abuse. Every one is working. However, other crimes are similar to earth. Kate was an astronaut, who first discovered earth and their government was interested in understanding human anatomy because they never knew about males. Through radio waves coming through earth they learn our language and culture. However they didn’t find anything special and humans were no danger for them so they didn’t contacted with earth.
One day I was abducted by Aliens and they made me unconscious by spraying some chemical on my face. When I wake up, I feel weak and tired. My hands were cuffed and I was inside a machine. My groin is paining and stitch but I was unable to move my head. As they notice I wake up, they took me out of machine and greet me. I was scared and I feel difficulty in breathing. They gave me a mask to breath. Mask was fitted with microphone to speak and listen. Their faces were horrible like Mystique of X-man. They start talking to me in my language using some micro instrument. Only Kate was talking without instrument, she learned our language in 3 years trip from earth to their planet called Radon . They calm me down and told me that they are friend and just want to study my anatomy and behaviour. After that they will send me home. They also told me that half of the work they already finished. Now they want to study me behaviour. For that they will keep me in Kate home as she is the one knew most about earth culture and our language. Furthermore, they said to me to co-operate as that is the only way to return. Understanding the situation I agree. They gave me some injection which makes me feel energetic and lively. An elevator took us to underground parking connected to vacuum tunnels. It is something like hyper-loop. The only difference was, cars itself were designed to travel in the tube instead of separate compartment travelling inside the loop.I was scared, sad, worried and tired. My hands were still cuffed. I was wondering how they differentiate each other when all are identical. Car window was opaque from outside but transparent from inside. To my surprise there were no high-rise buildings.
