An Unified Dream

Fiction
By Parivita Sinha

All flavor fades away with time. Is it with her only or with everybody? She is pondering why nothing gives her any desire? She is yet to reach her mid-thirty but life seems to her fulfilled dream.

Gopa had a rising career but she never chased ambitions. She sees her world in her husband. She always wished to be with him and now when they are married, nothing has left for her to gain. But he is unrest. He has big dreams that makes him unrest and sometimes annoyed.

Those were the days when they would spend hours together in the class, canteen and in the bus stand. He would do flirting silently, subtly with no friend to ever understand his intention. He was so romantic in those days and it all started then.

Time has changed the mood and restrained the endurance. It could be the reason why romance ends when love begins. Time has brought them a new phase of conjugal life and it has its own demands, needs and off course adjustments. Nemesh still loves her but his world is much bigger than her. He has dreams to follow, friends to talk and a market to cater. He has lot more engagements to meet with.

Gopa gropes for the mobile in dark. It is quarter to two. There is still long time for dawn to show its light. It happens to her often when many thoughts consume her and makes sleep her estranged friend. Tomorrow will be hectic for her as Nemesh will go early morning for an urgent meeting with his new client. She has also a bucket full of clothes to wash. Sweeping, swabbing, and cooking as usual. Gopa closes her eyes and hopes for the successful deal and a good day to come.

The 'Star' Krishankant Sinha of Space City Sigma

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi It is a myth that the all-knowing Internet knows everything. One such myth relates to old television stuff aired on Doordarshan before 1990. Search in Google “Space City Sigma”, the search engine would throw up reminiscent results from the people who still long for those days. Those days were really golden days. Krishankant Sinha in the role of Captain Tara in Space City Singma For those who have watched Doordarshan some 15 to 20 years back, am sure they will have nostalgic memories of it. The days when possessing a now ubiquitous looking television set was a luxury. It was a neighbour’s envy product. It was a visual product to showoff, to flaunt that we have a television set . Those were the days when black and white, locked television was rarely found in homes. The days became immortal for teleserials like Ramayana, Mahabharata, Swami’s Malgudi Days (Ta-Na-Na-Na…), Ek-Do-Teen-Char (Title song: Ek do teen char, chaaro mil ke saath chale to
