The Puzzle of Death Rain

He heard, the announcement being made, was in his language.
“The passengers are requested to move about 200 kms away from this place within TEN minutes, as acid-rain will occur within this range after that duration. It will thaw everyone.”
The announcement made him go mad. It was impossible to move about 200 kms in ten minutes.
There was no cover over the station and the trolley. So nothing could save him from the rain. Then an idea struck him mind and he got up on the trolley. It suddenly began running speedily on the track.
He found two indicators. The first told about the speed while the other depicted time. Reading stated 100 kms per minute. He sighed deeply. With this speed, he will cross 200 kms within two minutes. He happily started humming. But his ape-form allowed him to just screech. So, he stopped humming. He observed the indicator.
After one minute, the trolley jerked. He observed that the speed reduced to 50 kms per minute.
“Never mind. If not two minutes, the trolley will surely cross 200 kms within three minutes. Seven minutes will still be remaining.” He tried to console his heart. He lifted his face and looked at the sky, where weird clouds were hovering. Those clouds were as red as blood.
After another minute, the trolley jerked again. Now, the indicator displayed speed of only 25 kms per minute. He realized that the speed decreased to half after passing every minute.
Though he had always been a loser in terms of math, he tried to calculate the actual time it will take to cover the desired distance as he was in a big trouble. The results blew his mind. In this way, he realised that he will not be able to cross 200 kms even after travelling for infinite time.

When he entered the Principal’s cabin, Agarwal Sir was already present there.
“Sunil Kumar, boy, come.” The principal called for him caringly. He moved ahead.
“I am delighted to know that you have challenged Agarwal Sir that you can beat him in math.” The principal looked at Agrawal Sir. He was looking at Sunny with a sarcastic expression.
“Me?” said the king astonishingly.
Then, he understood the matter in a moment. He realized that Gagan and company had whispered into the ears of Agarwal Sir and principal.
“It is good, anyway. It will fulfill my mission. Nice chance.” He thought.
“Answer me, Sunil Kumar.” Principal Bhatia asked him.
“My heart told me to do so and that is why I challenged him.” Sunny replied politely.
Agarwal Sir’s face was as red as a melting iron whereas Mrs. Bhatia was almost going to fall off her chair.
“I accept his challenge.” said Agarwal Sir, “But I have a condition.”
“What condition?” the principal asked.
“If he is unable to solve the problem given by me, he will dip himself into the dirty sewer flowing behind our school.”
“This is an extreme punishment Mr. Agarwal …” the principal wanted to continue but king in Sunny’s appearance interrupted by saying, “I approve of the condition.”
“Alright. Let me set the question paper.” Agarwal Sir stood up.

Secret of Notice

“Hey! Neha, did you read this notice?” Pinky asked Neha and they turned towards the notice board.
“What is Sunny going to tell after the prayer tomorrow?” Tanu thought deeply.
“It seems that he has outgrown even the teachers’ brain here” Neha said with a smile.

“May I tell you?” Pinky said and both of them turned to her.
“What?” Neha asked.
“I think that Sunny is going to announce his love for you in front of the school tomorrow. It’s possible that he may propose you.” Pinky mischievously said.
“From which slumberland did this thought enter your mind?” Neha stared at her.

“Ha! My brain works faster than a computer. I can see true love for you in his eyes.” Pinky said happily.
“I wish this was true” Neha sighed. “But this is nothing more than a sweet dream.”
“Why do you say that it’s a dream? I have said it. He will do tomorrow what I am telling - sure.”
Pinky raised her finger which struck something behind her. She sighed and turned to look at a boy fallen on the ground. A heavy bouquet fell from his hand beside him. He got up in pain. Even though his face was covered in mud, the girls recognized him.

It was Gagan.
“Hey! Gagan, what happened to you?” Tanu was astonished.
“Actually I couldn’t see because of this huge bouquet in my hand and fell into drain.” Gagan laughed it away.
“I know this bouquet is for me. Gagan, you care so much for me. Many many thanks to you for this gift.” Pinky happily said and Gagan nastily looked at her. She was the only girl in the school whom Gagan hated.
“I will get you a mortar and pestle, someday, to prepare spices. Be off, this bouquet is for Neha.” Gagan offered Neha the bouquet after picking it up.

“For me, but why?” Neha was expressionless.
“Actually I want to tell you a message today whatever I have been restless about, since ages.” Gagan tried to be romantic. Although his face did not allow him to be so.
“Amazing! The guy is getting restless as if it was not message but a constipation disease.” This habit of Tanu to interrupt in between made people feel irritated many times.

The Story of an Ape

Monkey-turned-Sunny knew each nook and corner of his house and he easily reached the drawing room. He has not yet met his mother. And the question of meeting his father was not a near consideration. Because this was the time when he used to be in the office.

He saw that all the books were properly arranged in the rack.

“Perhaps, mom did it in my absence” he thought. He boiled with anger when he saw the math textbook in between other books. It was because of this damn book that he was in such a pitiful state. Now neither could he get into the group of animals, nor with the human beings.

From the e-book “Elusive Numbers”

The operation carried on for about one hour. And after a while, king’s brain was successfully established in Sunny’s body. While Sunny’s brain was visible in a separate tray.
“The operation is successful. Let us destroy boy’s brain.” Ma’am Vahn said, after testing Sunny’s body.
“An idea has struck my mind.” Said Romeo, while looking at a monkey sitting on a tree branch, outside the window.
“What kind of idea?” asked Silvasa.
“Let us fit this brain in that monkey and leave him in the forest. After coming back to conscious state, if the king’s brain does not accept this body, a human being’s brain will be unnecessarily destroyed. Am I right?”
