THE DOOMSDAY : 21-12-12

 

The  alarm  was  so  annoying  and  I  got  up  to  switch  it  off.  I  looked  around  and there  was  not  a  streak  of  light  anywhere.  I  looked  at  the  clock  and  it  read  7:30 AM.  I  wondered  what  was  happening  around  me.  I  peeped  out  of  the  window  to  look  at  the  sky  and  there  was  no  star,  no  sun,  no  moon,  nothing  at  al.  The  sky  was  so  dark.  I  looked  down  and  the  streets  were  empty.  Not  a  single  person  on  the  road.  It  looked  like  a  deserted  area.  I  felt  like  I  was  somewhere  else,  some  lonely  world.  In  this  dark,  I  managed  to  find  the  torch  and  went  out  of  my  room  to  see  if  my  folks  were  doing  good.  Mother  was  praying  to  god.  Father  was  sitting  in  the  balcony,  staring  at  the  sky.  And  my  little  brother  was  playing  with  the  building  blocks,  sitting  near  the  worried  woman,  my  mother.  It  was  all  so  unusual  in  the  early  morning.  Nothing  was  ready  in  the  kitchen,  my  tea  wasn't  ready  either  which  irritated  me  even  more  and  I  went  on  to  refresh myself,  wondering  what  went  into  these  people.  I  suddenly  heard  some  music.  Oh  yeah,  that's  my  mobile  ringtone.  I  had  kept  an  alarm  in  that  too,  the  usual  teens'  habit  of  irritating  their  parents  with  wired  alarm  tones.  I  went  in  search  of  my  mobile  and  there,  I  found  it  under  my  pillow.  When  I  took  the  mobile  in  my hand  to  switch  off  the  alarm,  I  stood  still,  staring  at  the  date  it  showed.  It was  21-12-12!!

I  ran  fast  to  the  window  and  peeped  out  to  see  the  dark  sky  again.  So,  is it  all  true?  Has  the  Mayan  calendar  said a  goodbye?  A  calendar  decides  the  end  of  so  many  lives?  And  the  world  is  going  to  end?  Wondered  how  pathetic  it  would  to  see  the  bare  world  with  none  in  it!!

Mother  was  praying  hard  for  our  lives.  Father  was  waiting  to  see  what  is  going  to  happen.  And  poor  brother,  wasn't  aware  of  anything  that  was  happening  around  him.  He  was  still  having  his  best  time  in  the  candle  light.

The  world  stood  still.  No  one  was  seen  out  on  roads.  The  quietest  world  one  could  have  ever  seen.  Not  a  single  thing  moved.  People  sat  at  home  in  the  darkness,  spending  time  with  their  loved  ones.  They  shared  every  possible  thing  they  missed  to.  Each  one  confessed  all  that  they  had  to.  It  was  one  whole  monotonous  day  that  had  passed,  with  each  one  ready  enough  to  face  anything  worst  that  they  didn't  even  hesitate  to  imagine,  for  it  was  really  one  of  the  most  awaited  as  well  as  feared  day.

There  was  a  sudden  light  from  the  window  pane.  The  sun  was  bright  as  ever.  The  power  was  restored  and  when  I  rushed  to  see  the  clock,  I  realised  that  it  was  6:00 AM,  the  next  day.  The  whole  world  was  sticking  on  to  the  news  channels  to  see  if  anything  had  happened  around  the  world.  Everyone  called  their folks  at  different  parts  of  the  world  and  the  women  in  all  the  houses  were  thanking  god  for  saving  their  family.  But  what  a  funny  end,  nothing  had  happened  anywhere  in  the  world.  Not  a  single  death  or  calamity  at  any  place  encountered . In  fact,  the  world  was  at  harmony  with  each  one  resting  back  at  their  homes.  People  felt  like  fools  for  having  believed  and  feared  about  the  world's  end.  The  whole  world  laughed  at  itself  and  people  were  back  to  their  normal  life,  after  a  day  of  leisure.
