ALL FOOL’S DAY
 
It was a hot summer morning. As usual I was late for school. To begin with it was really a very drowsy summer morning and I didn’t felt like leaving the cozy and comfortable bed. But the honeymoon period soon broke and I was running against time to enter the school gates before they are closed. We had given a lot of homework. The amount of school-work was slowly intensifying. Many students were lacking behind the time table. I was one among them. After a lunch which consisted of curry and rice I felt like going off to the lands of dreams. I distinctly remember that I had slept for about fifteen minutes that I heard a crashing sound. I woke up with a start. I rushed out to find that a window was broken. On further investigation (to tell you I am a very poor Sherlock Homes) I found a small letter attached to a rock lying among the glass shatters. Giving the letter a quick glance I couldn’t make heads or tails of it. Then scrutinizing it I found it had a mixed range of words (some written in English while many words were written in Latin and Greek or so I presume because I am ignorant about both the languages). With great difficulty (though most of the work was done by the computer) I was able to decode the letter. It read something like this-
Dear earthlings,
My name is C587. I am a Martian. This letter was intended to reach earth. You might be quite unaware about us but we know you from head to toe. We use ultrasonic waves to get the required information. This is the first time we are sending a letter to your planet. Please reply soon. You can mail me at C587@gmail.com. I just want a pen friend.
Yours,
C587.
I found it purely unbelievable and unrealistic but I couldn’t dismiss it from my mind altogether. I replied giving my name, address and accepted him as my pen-pal. The next morning was the most embarrassing day for me. The letter had been sent by none other than the class bully Rohit. Everyone made fun of me and I remained the highly gossiped boy in the school for two consecutive days. Well, as a matter of fact, it was 1st April (All fools day) when Rohit fooled me. From that day onwards I always remember 1st April. A last advice to all the readers, “Please keep a check of the calendar.” 
THE END
