#Bar-A-Thon Day 6: Six Minutes of Fame

They dreamt of performing in India’s Best Talent Hunt Show and becoming The Famous Four.

Beach, roadside, parks, bridges, monuments, high-rise buildings, they had tried them all for their death-defying stunts. The next chosen destination was the dam for they would send the video for the first round of audition. They will become famous.

The wild waters were let loose, blinded by youth, they ignored the warning.

The video went viral. They became famous, only none of them survived to see it.

Four youth drowned while performing stunts on the dam…

All for mere six minutes of fame.

#Bar-A-Thon Day 4: Four Corners of the World

It’s a grand ceremony. People from the four corners of the world have gathered here. My father, my mother and all my friends are here. I have made them all proud today. It’s a special day for me for they will honour me with the Param Vir Chakra today.

Neeta, my beautiful wife, looks beautiful as ever holding our baby in her arms. She climbs the stairs to join me on the stage.

I am so happy to see her yet so sad!

How I wish God had given me a few more years to live with her!
