He came back (Part 8) (Final part)
Sthir’s behavior was changing. He was much aware about every unusual incident. He was always in search of a scientific reason for every situation or problem. He got good news that his model was declared first in that science competition. He was called to city next week to get the award. He told this in his school. He was awarded in school also. in front of whole school the principal said that he is proud on Sthir (yes, you heard it right, principal himself told this). He was now most popular boy in the school. But as you know this type of popularity is short termed after all it was from study not by cricket.
He was spending more time with Mr. Ramanuj. He realized that Mr. Ramanuj was a genius. He was from IIT. After completing his study he got very big offers but he didn’t like. He wanted to do something different. He left his home for some time and start journey to the world. He went many places and met many new people. When Sthir asked about those places then he started telling about some strange places but immediately he stopped and changed the topic. Sthir was dying to know about those places but Mr. Ramanuj changed the subject. Sthir was sure that those strange places were not exists on earth. But it can be his imagination because after that dream he was sure that Mr. Ramanuj was an alien. But this imagination was broken when Mr. Ramanuj got a call from his mother in front of Sthir. So it was clear that Mr. Ramanuj was not an alien.
Mr. Ramanuj told him about some planets where alien can be exists. But these planets were so far away that we can’t reach them. He told about many amazing things which Sthir didn’t know. Sthir tried to google these on school internet. But he was failed to get all those details. He got some stories about kidnap by aliens. Some people claimed that alien kidnapped them and experimented on them. But after some time it was found false report or some type of joke. He got some strange stories also when people vanished in front of people. He read once a full regiment of soldiers were lost. He read about Barmuda triangle where no ship or plane can go, people believes that there are alien activities.
The day came when he went to other city with his father. They went there by bus. Both were happy. They reached in evening. There was a person named Mr. Garg to receive them. They were taken to hotel to take rest. Next day he went to the function. He was called to stage to take his trophy. When he went and get hold on trophy two handkerchief came from trophy and caught his hands. He tried to scream but his lips were sealed like from that handkerchief some chemical paralyzed his body. The chief guest saw him with hunger and said “Good bye”. Immediately the trophy flew in the sky with Sthir. Sthir’s father tried to came near the stage but guards caught him. Sthir shouted and woke up. This was another weird dream.
Next day he and his father went to function. Everything was normal, Sthir got his trophy and certificate. Chief Guest was chairman of municipal committee. Lunch was great. After the function, Mr. Garg dropped them to bus stand. They got bus and started their journey to home. When they were in middle of the way a bright light appeared on the top of bus. Everything was so bright like sun itself came on earth. Every person closed his/her eyes with their hands. Within two seconds the light disappeared. Nothing changed except Sthir father shouted “Where is my son? Where is Sthir?”
Sthir was not there. Other people asked him why he was shouting. He told that his son is missing. Everyone asked where he lost him. He was surprised to hear this question. He told that Sthir was with him before that light, but nobody was seemed to remember that they had seen any boy with him. Even conductor told that he was alone and he gave only one ticket to him. Sthir’s father checked his pocket there was only one ticket. But he held Sthir’s trophy to prove that Sthir was with him. He came back to home and went to police station. Police asked him many times that exactly where he lost his son. He was saying same story which has no proof or witness as the whole bus can’t lie. Sthir’s mother was crying her only son was missing and nobody knew why and where. Next day was Sthir’s birthday he was 12 today but now they don’t know where he is.
After two years, a young man aged about 18 came to their home. Sthir’s mother was sitting outside her home. His father was out for work. They didn’t forget Sthir how can they be but they learned to live with his memories. The person came and touched feet of Sthir’s mother. Her mother was surprised because the person was reminding her of Sthir. He was a handsome guy. Before Sthir’s mother would say anything he cried and embraced her with saying “Mom”. Sthir’s mother was speechless her eyes filed with tears. She asked with chocked throat “Who are you?”
The young man released her from his embrace with surprise in his eyes. “Mom, its me, Sthir. You forget your own son.”
Immediately the whole village gathered the news was spread like forest fire. Sthir’s father came running. He was also surprised. No doubt the young man was resembled with Sthir. But how can it be? Sthir was about 14 years old and this person was about 18. They asked him where was he, but he seemed to know nothing. He told that he was travelling with his father in bus and when he opened his eyes he was outside the village. Police also came. They verified him, he told everything about his past. His mother asked him some questions which only Sthir was able to answer and the person gave all answers correctly. His parents agreed that he was Sthir. Police noted the record and asked him to stay for some day and don’t leave village without information. Next day village newspaper’s headline was “He Came back”
