A Journey to The Stars - Chapter 1 - Vishnu and Sneha

One day little Vishnu was playing all by himself in the lovely garden adjacent to their house. It was all bright sunny day. The sky was clear. The cool breeze was flowing like a majestic river. The little birds were chriping on the nearby pine trees.

He was busy running around trying to catch the beautiful butterflies that were flying in the garden. Sometimes a small butterfly with shining wings would sit on the petals of the rose flower as if unaware of Vishnu's presence. The naughty Vishnu would think that the butterfly was not noticing him. He would slowly walk upto the rose plant. Just as his little palm and fingers would come close to touching the dotted wings, the butterfly would fly away! He would be left thinking as to why he was not able to outwit the butterfly.
Finally, he gave up chasing the butterflies. He sat down in the shade of a small tree. He looked upwards towards the sky. He saw white clouds passing by. He started counting them, ".One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten..." He would stop at the Ten, since he knew counting only upto ten. Then, he started couting again from one to ten. This, he repeated many times.
The sky turned slightly dark with darker clouds having replaced the cotton-like white clouds. The Sun was hidden behind this darkness. Suddenly, Vishnu saw a bright flash amongst the dark clouds. A ball of white light seemed hurtling downwards towards him only, from amidst the clouds. He was stunned. The white ball of light stopped just in front of him. Lo, the ball of white light turned into a beautiful fairy who was holding a magic wand in her left palms and smiling at him!
The little Vishnu looked at the beautiful fairy........................

A Journey to The Stars

Chapter 1

Vishnu and Sneha


Vishnu and sneha were two brother and sister. Vishnu was aged around four and a half years and sneha around three years of age.They both lived with their parents in a mountainous region of Himalayas. Both were quite chirpy, bubbly and full of life. Vishnu was fond of running around in the adjoing forests and hiding for hours together. Sneha would then go to her mother crying. She would say, "....Mummy,Niddhu Bhaiya is lost...." She could not pronounce the word ‘Vishnu’ as ‘Vishnu’. She pronounced the word ‘Vishnu’ as ‘Niddhu’.Her mother would then go to the nearby pine forests and say aloudly, "Vishnu, where are you?Are you hiding on the tree top, are you hiding inside the caves, are you hiding in the Indian ocean, are you hiding in the rivers, are you hiding in the mangroves, are you hiding in the eastern ghats,
are you hiding in the western ghats, are you hiding in the planes, are you hiding inside sofasets, are you hiding in the stars....?" She would wait for a few minutes and then would stealthily walk towards a pine tree she knew Jishnu always hid behind. She would touch the shoulders of Vishnu who would be hiding his face towards the pine tree with both his eyes closed. She would say, "I have found Vishnu......". Then Vishnu would turn around with mischievous eyes and say, " Take me up in your arms." Whereupon, his mother would lovingly take him up in her arms and bring him home. Sneha would shout with joy on seeing Vishnu back. She would say,"Niddhu Bhaiya , where were you..I not found you." Vishnu would give a big smile and say, "I was in Stars.........!"
