I was reading a newspaper (sometime I really do) and surprised to see a news about suicides by husbands due to sec 498 (sec 498 is about case for demanding dowry from wife. In this husband and his family member were declared guilty without any proof and they were put behind the bars without any case first). The newspaper claimed that more than 65,000/- husbands commit suicide every year due to sec 498. This number is huge more than farmer’s suicide which is a hot issue in parliament but still no body is taking care of this.

NCRB (National Crime Record Bureau) published a report in which it is stated that 98% of cases u/s 498 found false. If it is true then to whom government wants to protect when women are misusing this section so abruptly? In every 3 minutes a case is filed u/s 498 and in every 8 minutes a husband is committed suicide.

Sec 498 was introduced to protect women from their in-laws abuses but as Indians work by emotions not by mind, this law gave full authority to women to do anything with their in-laws. According to sec 498 if a woman filed a FIR against her husband and other in-laws (whether they live with them or not) then police will arrest all of them and put them behind bars without a single proof. After this the husband and his family will fight in court for their bail and to prove that they are not guilty. Interesting point that in Indian law system if one part of the case is not coming in the court then there is infinite chances for them and other part will suffer till they come. So in practical when a woman filed a case after arrest of in-laws she doesn’t come to court and case is postponed till then husband and his family will be in jail without any abuse. After a long hearing if it is proved that husband and his family is not guilty then there is no punishment for woman.

These days emotional bounds are getting weaker and people don’t care about each other and temper of every person is high without any sense. People get angry and do the things for which they are sorry when anger comes down. This is a bitter truth so a single fight between husband and wife cause a case u/s 498. When husband is in jail without any cause then there is very little chance of compromise. Result a happy home destroyed. I believe this law is the main reason of broken families these days. Because the result of this case can never be reversed, because a innocent person can’t digest the punishment so husband never able to forget and after this wife is not able to compromise whatever she do after this. In India second marriage is still not popular people don’t believe in this. Once a person is divorced people treat him/her as a guilty.

I am not saying this section must be removed because dowry abuses are also true. I want to say that there must be below modifications in this law:

  1. Police must not arrest husband or his family without court order. Mere complaint by woman is not the evidence that she is victim.
  2. Only husband must be the liable and the case should be only in his name. Why his all relatives are part of this case even when they are living in other city?
  3. If the case found false then that woman must be punished. So that next person must think before filing a false case.

Family is the base of society if families are not longer exists our whole society structure will be destroyed. So law for families must not be so hard that effect of those can’t be reversed. Courts must try to compromise in these cases because many times people are in influence of advocates. But that doesn’t mean that guilty must not be punished, if husband is guilty for demanding dowry then he must be punished but not before he is found guilty. Main motive of Indian law an innocent must not be punished must be followed.

Abolish Dowry

498a-IPC

Dowry Laws Every Indian must know

Never tell a lie (Part 7)

Sthir was now worried because he knew that plan was not simple, whatever is happening is very much dangerous. It could be act of some enemy country to get hold on India by controlling small cities. He decided to check Priya’s home because there was no bad news about Priya or her family. This case was old so it could be possible that anything bad had been happened but report was not released in media. Sthir installed two cameras near Priya’s home and with previous experience he installed the camera little far away with x-ray vision.

It was really difficult to control all the things in one time. He understood saving the world work is really difficult and boring. He applied to hostel warden that his uncle has come in the city for some work and staying in a hotel. So he wants to stay with him for 2-3 days. Warden didn’t allow for 3 days but after many requests he allowed for one day only. It is better to have something than nothing. So Sthir was glad. But he was lucky this time. The same day he got some movement near her home. He was watching in cameras signal which were coming to his mobile. He saw that one person has trespass the outside wall and went inside. Sthir tried to see the face but that person had his face covered with a hood. The person went to the corner and started to climb on the pipe. Soon he was on second story where the glass of near window was opened. He entered inside home. Sthir was watching all this. X-ray vision was working properly. He could see that the intruder was going to first floor now. So the intruder knew that the window will be opened. Perhaps it is broken or it can be possible that someone inside home is with him. The intruder didn’t stop he went to ground floor. Now vision was getting confusing because by x-ray vision he could see all things so things of above two floors were making confusion with ground floor.

Sthir was thinking perhaps the thing which the intruder was searching on ground floor, but he was surprised when he opened a gate below stairs and went to basement. So this guy whoever he is knows everything about home. Someone has told him everything or he got the knowledge of everything from a person who lived in the home from years like Priya. A wild idea came in Sthir’s mind perhaps the person is extracting all knowledge from the victim’s mind and by this he or she can know everything about that person. So by this idea this person knows every single object or knowledge which Priya knows about home. That is why he can go so easily in the home without any problem.

He tried hard to concentrate on the intruder’s movements. It was difficult to say what he was doing in basement. But it was clear that he took something from an almirah or safe whatever it is. This time that person didn’t take the same route. He came to main gate and opened it. He came out from home from front door. Sthir got active. He put the mobile in his pocket and came near to gate. The intruder started to move in right side of home. Sthir was ready and he ran towards the intruder. The person was intelligent but he was not so fast and Sthir was two time fast than a normal person. He caught the person by his neck.

Now the person was surprised. He moved fast and his right kick caught Sthir on mouth. Sthir was not expecting so much speed from him because his previous movements were very slow but now he was fighting like an expert professional fighter. Sthir was not a normal guy now. He was stronger than any normal guy. He got ready and started to control that thief. But surprisingly the person was now stronger and fast and for more problems he was really aggressive like he doesn’t care about him. Sthir stopped two kicks by his both hands side by side and he didn’t know how or from where a kick came straight to his chest. He flew backward and crashed on the road. It is really painful when you hit a coal tar coated road with full force. The intruder was in hurry he didn’t wait Sthir to get up. He started to run. Sthir ran after him. Sthir was following the intruder now, on a sharp cut the intruder stopped suddenly and kicked backward. Sthir was in full force he tried to save the kick and move aside. But the force made him go forward. His hand grabbed the hood from the intruder’s face. His eyes were widened from shock. In the same time the intruder moved his knee to Sthir’s face and stars started to dance in front of Sthir’s eyes. He fell back covering his face with both hands. When he became normal, his head was giddy with pain and shock because when he removed the hood he found that the person was not he; he was a she; a girl. A girl who can’t be herself because the face he saw was the face of PRIYA.

Shaheen (Part 11)

Shaheen (Part 11)

After valentine she got jealousy from Shikha. She snatched Yash from her. Whenever she came in class she only looked that Yash and Shikha were talking. Everything else in class was nothing to her. Result of all this was shown in her mark sheet. She was just passed in 9th class. She was a brilliant student but now she was below average. Shaheen didn’t mind the result. For her, everything was vain except Yash.

When her father saw the result, he didn’t shout this time. He became silent. After two days he was late. All were worried because from shop Rahmaan always come to home about 10 p.m. but today it was 11.30 p.m. and still he was out of home. Armaan went to shop at 10.30 p.m. and it was closed. There was no news about late coming. Raima was so worried that she opened the door when knocked once without asking who is there. But fortunately it was Rahmaan. He was drunk. Smell of liquor was coming from his mouth. Liquor is forbidden for a muslim and Rahmaan always obeyed that but today he left the rule. Everyone was shocked, Raima asked angrily and got a slap in answer. All three children were awaked but after seeing their mother slapped no one tried to go near their father.

Rahmaan went to bed straight and fell down on bed. He was asleep but no other in home was sleeping. Rahmaan was talking in sleep he murmured about going down business and the debt he took for home. Once he said about low marks of Shaheen. Tears came in Shaheen’s eyes. She was feeling that that this was the main reason her father started to drink liquor. She was responsible for all this. No one in home said anything to her but she knew from heart that her lower marks broke her father’s heart. He was expecting much more from her. She was the only brilliant student in her home and her father was hoping that she will do something big one day. For this dream he was fighting with his relatives and religious person and spending everything on all children study, else in Muslim family a girls study is really difficult and unnecessary.

Shaheen decided that she will gain her father’s trust again. When school began she forgot about Yash and concentrated on her study only. All students were same. Tanya was still her best friend and Rahul was still looking at her from distance.

There was nothing special in 10th class except pressure of study. Because board exam were coming this year and your option of choosing career depends on results of these exams. Yash broke up with Shikha. Before this Shaheen was not talking to Shikha but now she wanted to know. Yes she decided to forget Yash but it is really difficult to forget your first crush. Even her father’s liquor habit for which she believed she is the reason didn’t stop her to know about this. She and Tanya met Shikha and started to talk. It is really easy for girls to talk because when someone is talking then being a girl you must talk back. Shikha told them that yash wanted to have sex with her and she refused before marriage. He tried everything to convince her but she didn’t agree because she knew after getting everything Yash will not care for her. This was shocking news. She was thinking that Yash was really good but his intentions were full of filth. Indian girls respects their culture and their culture tells that only a husband can sex with the girl they must not allow other person even to touch. With time culture is change now, touching is not a big thing these days because you are studying in co-ed schools and going to offices for job but still sexual relation except husband is really bad.

This news was spread like wildfire. Every girl in class started to hate yash. Whenever he tried to talk anyone that girl ignored him. Once one of the most popular guys in class, became most hated person in class. Even his most admirer girls Shaheen and Tanya refused to talk to him. Nobody told her that Indian girl can do anything for their love but can’t allow anyone to put a figure on their family tradition and culture. That’s why it is popular that a girl enlightens her family name, she is the light of her family values and her character is the mirror of her family character. She is the base for two families once from birth and other from marriage.

Shaheen (Part 10)

So Shaheen started to live in her dream with Yash (Neither she has tell her feelings to Yash yet nor Yash has hinted anything like this to her). Her dreams cost her lot, her marks in midterm exam were very low. She didn’t tell this to her parents but she forgot that her sister was also in same school. His brother was ok he wouldn’t tell this to their parents as his marks were not too goo but her sister has decided to make her life hell. She told the result to their parents. Rahmaan was angry with Shaheen, it is the first time when he shouted on Shaheen. But it didn’t affect Shaheen much because she was in love, as per her view only. She was not smart enough in that age to know the difference between love and attraction. That’s why people says parents must be very careful in this age because teenage don’t understand but they believe that they know everything. Rahmaan was busy in his business which was falling down. Raima was weak and nobody was at home to help her. All children were their own. Samayra was not listening to anybody and Armaan was also happy with his friends.

14 February had come, the day for which every love bird waits Valentine day. Shaheen was hopeful that Yash will purpose her, else she will purpose him. But second option was impossible for her, a girl can’t purpose a boy. She was fully dressed up and looking stunning. From her street boys started to purpose her. Karim was standing outside his home and waiting for her. She knew his motives so she ignored his eyes gaze and start moving towards school. Karim came near and started to walk with her. It was normal two students were going school, he asked her whether she will be his valentine. She didn’t know what it’s mean but she didn’t want to be anything for Karim so she simply said no. Karim started to argue why not him? what is problem in him? Shaheen wanted to say that she loved someone else but he was neighbor and it will cause her a big trouble. So she simply said that she want to live alone. When Karim went a bike came near her, she knew that it was Ali and her guess was right. Ali held a single rose in his hand (this day rose becomes very expensive, prices goes high more than five times). He asked her to accept that but she ignored and told him to leave her alone. He asked can he drop her to school but she was not ready for that also. Ali keep his bike with her till she reached school. She saw some more street guys holding rose in their hands in the way. Actually this day has become the day when any guy can purpose any girl. Guys think that they can do anything on this day and it is allowed so sometime they crosses limits and it really put a girl in difficult situation. Some girls saw that Ali was with Shaheen, it was clear by the view that Shaheen was ignoring and Ali was just following her. But in teenage Shaheen was thinking that everybody will think that she is enjoying so she was worried. Her thoughts were troubled by the thought that what will happen if Yash will see this. Sweat came on forehead while reaching school she was searching for Yash. But thanks to Allah Yash was not there. She entered the school and Ali stayed behind.

Shaheen got a strange urge so she came back at the gate to look, Ali was purposing another girl with red rose. The girl was seemed uncomfortable, she was trying to go but Ali was on her way. At last school’s guard came in action and told Ali to go away. Shaheen said” Boys”

She came to class, two more student purpose her. She didn’t know them they were her seniors. Both came with rose and chocolate. Chocolate was Shaheen’s weakness she wanted to take the chocolate and throw the rose. But accepting chocolate was also bad as accepting rose from them. When she entered in class Rahul came and asked her to come in a corner because he wanted to talk to her. Tanya came near to her. Shaheen told Rahul to tell whatever he want to say in front of Tanya. Rahul was shy, with great difficulty he told” Shaheen, I always see you.”

“Then?”

“Ammmm…. Actually I was thinking.. means I want to ask….”

“What?”

“I want to be….can we be friends.”

“We are in same class so we are already friends.” Shaheen was irritated because Yash was not in class and one more guy is trying to be smart with her.

“I mean not like simple friend… I mean”

“You want to be my boy friend?” Shaheen snapped.

“No no I mean …sorry, if you are hurt.” Rahul was puzzled. He was really bad with girls.

Shaheen and Tanya left him and went to their seat. Tanya was teasing her about Rahul. But Shaheen told her that Rahul is not her type. In the mean time she saw Yash was entering in the class with a rose in his hand. Shaheen’s heart skips one beat to see him.

Yash came to her bench and asked Tanya to move aside, Tanya was hurt but she left the seat. Yash set on her seat near Shaheen. He directly looked Shaheen in her eyes and said “Shaheen, I wanted to tell you from begning but was afraid that you will be angry. But now today my heart broke all the boundries and I want to be with you. Will you be my valentine for rest of my life?” Shaheen was on seventh sky, she couldn’t believe what is happening. His love himself came to purpose her. She said “YES”

“What?” Yash seemed confused.

“Yes” Shaheen said again.

“Hello, What Yes?” Yash’s voice changed into a girl voice.

The whole room was trembling like it was going to fall down. Shaheen opened her eyes and saw Tanya was shaking her. “What Yes? What are you talking about?”

She was day dreaming. Yash has come and set on his seat. A girl named Shikha was setting near him. She was also holding a red rose in her hand and they were talking happily. It seems one of them purposed and other accepted. Shaheen’s valentine day was over.

Shaheen (Part 9)

Shaheen passed 8th but her marks were going down now. She had left interest in study. What is the benefit of her study? She couldn’t get admission in her favorite school. If she will top then also she will be forced to marry a stranger and left her wishes about career. These thoughts were stopping her from her study and even to try to fulfill her ambitions. Her parents started to worry because they were thinking high on her but Shaheen marks hinted to take extra care for Shaheen. Shaheen assured them that she will work hard but it was not full truth. Previous incidents had broken her will.

She was in 9th and her section was changed by school authority. She got new friends, she met with Tanya and became good friend with her. They spends their days with enjoy and fun. Boys were still interested in Shaheen but she was not interested. Sometimes she was surprised why boys like her? What is her main attraction but she didn’t find any. She didn’t like her body at all. “I am thin and my height is also not good, even my friends make fun related to my height sometimes then why boys like me so much?” This was the question she asked her many times. But there was one thing about her body which she also love very much her hair. Shaheen had long heavy black hair. They were long enough to touch her thighs. She was really careful for them. These were a problem also because she was getting problem to wash so long hairs so her mom usually helped her to wash them. But still she loved them and it was the main attraction of her beauty.

Shaheen was a teenager and in this age opposite sex attracts. In spite of horrible experience with Hussain, Shaheen was a teenage girl and her heart wanted someone for her. A boy named Yash got her attraction. He was very good looking and handsome. She got a crush on him. She was a girl and couldn’t say that to him. So every time he met her, her eyes always goes down. She wanted him to talk to her and like her but she was not able to express her feeling to him or anybody else. He liked her but not with these feelings he was seeing her like other girls in class.

There was a guy named Rahul in her class. He was really brilliant. His color was dark and he was not so handsome. Once teacher asked a question and nobody in class was able to answer except Rahul. Shaheen knew her but it was like other boys in class. Rahul seemed to like her but this was the problem of other guys also. Like Shaheen was searching chances to talk to Yash Rahul was searching chances to talk to her.

She told Tanya about her crush on Yash. She was surprised when Tanya told that she also liked Yash. She was kind of a girl whose liking was almost like Shaheen even in boys. Tanya didn’t object her choice but told Shaheen that it is not possible because Yash is a Hindu and Shaheen is Muslim. Shaheen knew that but she didn’t know what difference it makes. Tanya told her about difference between Hindu and Muslims. She told that it is not possible in society to marry in different religion and their parents will not allow this. She was sad but heart don’t listen any rules her attraction for Yash was not going down. She knew that Tanya is right about religion so her friendship with Tanya was still good.

One day she came to her home and found everybody was happy. Her father’s sister was at home with his son and a new bride which she didn’t seen before. She was surprised that nobody told her about her cousin marriage. They told that it was a love marriage the girl was Hindu. Her parents were not agreed so both ran away from home and did marriage in court. Now both are husband wife and nobody can argue on this. This was the reason they didn’t tell any boy or invite them to their marriage but now there will be reception and for that they have come to invite them. Everyone was happy but Shaheen was most happy by this news the first though which came in her mind that now she can marry Yash. Her family is not orthodox and they are not against Hindu-Muslim marriage. Now her love will win. Now first time in her life her religion gave her a chance to get what she loved. Her life is going to change now she will be happiest girl in the world.

Shaheen started to go school. Gulshan also joined and some other old school friends also met there. Actually the school was not famous or expensive, her previous school was also less expensive so all middle class family students were getting admission there and now they find the same standard school again.

Now she was in sixth class and in teen age. She was developing her body and she was really getting more beautiful. Boys started to tease her. Some of her school boys always came near her home following her from school. Shaheen was always with Gulshan. Some of them tried to purpose her but she didn’t like any. Her fright of boys was stopping her to talk to any boy.  Soon she cleared sixth class with good marks; she was topper of her class.

She and Gulshan came to seventh class which was a milestone in their lives. Rahmaan Hussain purchased a home in sharing with his cousin.  Now Shaheen had her own home, she was very happy but this home was far away from her school. She started to go to Gulshan’s home first and then both go to school. When Shaheen and her family shifted to new home one of neighbor was staring her. There was something in his eyes which Shaheen can’t forget. That was a strange feeling. But she ignored, the boy was big enough. He was in college; his brother was in Shaheen’s class but in different school. When they shifted they came to Shaheen’s home to know the neighbors. Shaheen got tuitions as she was getting problem in English. In her home her parents were not able to help her and her brother and sister were losing interest in study. His brother’s marks were getting low each time. She was the only one who was intelligent so Rahmaan Hussain decided to do whatever he could do for her daughter.

One day when she was coming from tuition a bike came very close to her. First she was afraid that it will hit her but it stopped near. The same neighbor who was in college was riding the bike, he told that he is going home and asked her whether she wants to come with her. Shaheen ignored. This became habit of that guy named Ali. His small brother Karim started to come at her home for study purpose. One day he came and when they started to study and Raima went outside Karim brought out a Red rose from his beg. He told her that he loved her, Shaheen was in difficult situation. She told him to put back that rose in his beg if her mother would come she will be in trouble. But Karim was stubborn. He started to insist to accept his love. Shaheen knew that if her mother would know her study will be stopped. She begged him but he was not listening her no. Gate opening voice came in their ears, it seems Raima has come back, Shaheen was statue with fear but Karim put the rose back in his beg. Raima came in room and saw Sweat on Shaheen’s forehead. She cleaned the sweat with her dupatta (a cloth which Indian female wear with suits). Shaheen was happy that her mother didn’t notice anything. Now she decided to not to talk to Karim and told her that he must not come to her home for study. It was strange Ali and Karim both were purposing her in their own way.

One day when she went to Gulshan’s home to take her to school. Her mother told that enjoy some more day after that she will not go to school. When Shaheen tried to ask Gulshan caught her hand and pulled her away from her mom. On the way Gulshan told her that her marriage was fixed and next month she will be married to Ahmad. Shaheen was surprised why so early. She asked that you are so young to marry but Gulshan told her weeping that she was lucky that Shaheen’s father understands otherwise in Muslim family marriage in younger age in not rare thing.

When Shaheen came home she asked her mother. She told her that it is normal. Girls are for marry and for take care of home. parents home is not their real home, their real home is their husband’s home, there a girl go in Doli and came on four people shoulders (means girl will left her husband home when she is dead only). She told her that it is their destiny. When Shaheen asked that will she be married in such younger age she told that no, if it will be in her power, she will not let it happen.

Next month arrived and Gulshan was married, Shaheen’s best friend left her forever. She went to her real home. When she was going in Doli Shaheen was weeping she was not understanding why a girl must left her home for the happiness of others. Don’t a girl have heart or they are just cattle whom can be carried away by any strange man.

A typical Indian love story

But that was true

Never tell a lie (Part 6)

Next day Sthir did his routine with balloons and cameras. When he reached the class some student were discussing about how bad happened with Rajesh’s family. Sthir’s heard and became curious what now happened to Rajesh or his family. He asked them and came to know that Rajesh’s father was working in Deputy Commissioner’s office. He became mad after Rajesh’s incident and set his house on fire. He and his wife died, Rajesh was in hospital so he was safe. Rajesh is so unlucky that his parents died and he didn’t realized what he has lost. Police is searching something in what remained of house. Rumor is Rajesh’s father got some important documents related to expansion plan of city.

This news makes Sthir uncomfortable. He decided to bunk the class and came out of room. Heena was about to come inside. Sthir was in hurry so both hit each other. Heena was about to fall due to this contact but Sthir caught her by her waist. She smiled; Sthir didn’t apologize and went away. Heena was surprised what happened. Sthir came to library and took the newspapers. He was searching for any clue. He didn’t think yet what about victim’s family. There was news about Jai’s family accident. Jai was the first victim who came to knowledge. Jai’s papa was MLA (that’s why police took immediate action that day). A thief entered in their home and opened the hidden safe. Surprisingly the thief knew where it was and how to unlock it. He went straight to safe without any problem. Security guards went to sleep somehow. Jai’s mom woke up for water. She saw the thief and shouted. Jai’s father woke up and tried to stop the thief but thief shoots both of them and run away. When police came safe was opened, all money and jewels were safe. It was still a mystery what was thief’s motive. If he was after something special then what it was?

There was nothing much he got. So in two cases something happened after that. But what about others, there was no news for them. He wanted to know more but how. When he left library he met Heena again. This time they didn’t hit each other but Heena was not happy. Sthir ignored and started to go but Heena stopped him. She caught his hand and dragged him to canteen. On the side corner table she ordered two coffees. She didn’t talk to Sthir when coffee arrived she simply started to sip her coffee. Sthir got restless; he knew why Heena is behaving like this. He never tried to get attention, girls were always circling him. But this was something new for him, Heena was ignoring and it was affecting him. It is human tendency when someone is caring and coming near they don’t feel the value but when someone is ignoring then they tried to get close. Same was happening here, when Heena was trying to come near Sthir was showing attitude but now today he was feeling strange. After five long minutes, Sthir spoke “Sorry, Heena, I was in hurry. Actually I was thinking something and didn’t see you.”

“It’s OK.” A flat simple answer came from Heena lips

“So…” Sthir was trying to start conversation.

“So?” Heena put full stop on his conversation.

“How was the class?”

“Fine”

“Arr… what did you learn?”

“If you are so much interested then why didn’t you attend the class?” Heena snapped.

Sthir understood that his behavior hurt Heena very much. Now there was no other option except to tell Heena everything. So he told Heena about his investigation about these weird incidents. Heena became interested and her mood changed. Girls are so complicated when you are trying to make them understand by using your full mind then they will not understand but when you leave your knowledge and tell them more strange things from your heart they will understand everything. Now she was not angry. Sthir didn’t tell her about cameras because it would surprise her about how he knew this technology. She tried to give her suggestions but none of them was great as she didn’t know the truth and she was not able to think about so latest technology. But one thing which Heena told Sthir was the key which Sthir was searching. Priya was daughter of municipal commissioner of the city. Heena knew Priya. Sthir asked her anything bad happened to her family after this. But Heena told that everything was ok, nothing wrong happened to her family it is what she knew. Now mood was good and both became secret keeper also. Full day was spent so they left college.

Sthir came to hostel and started to thing. So mostly students belong to rich and powerful families, someone is trying to control or get something very important and when action is so dangerous then the motive would be disaster.

When Sthir got hint that his enemy is also a scientist, he was more careful. Now he understood that why his camera’s didn’t catch any movement. But if that person knew that Sthir is trying to catch him then he will be more careful. He checked his computer and scanned all the cameras. All cameras were working. Now he checked the recordings, one camera shows some disturbance for five seconds. Its pictures were disturbed like electro-magnetic rays caught it. Perhaps it was the moment when that scientist was crossing the camera.  Now he knew that these cameras will not help him.

Sthir decided to use X-ray with camera. He adjusted X-ray system with camera. Now this camera could be use to see through walls. He adjusted this with his hostel’s roof from where the whole college could be seen. He checked his computer and found this was working great but there was one problem, roof was not so high to cover all college. So camera was showing only a part of college clearly rest of part was not properly visible. He needed to adjust the camera high, but HOW? He didn’t get much equipment. He was watching buildings to check from where he could be able to fit the camera, but all buildings near college were low. Next day when he was going to college then he saw a rickshaw, it had a banner for pulse polio advertisement. He got an idea. He bunked the college and went to municipal department and met the officer. He suggested using an air balloon, so that it could be seen from a long distance. The idea was great. The officer liked this but he told that they don’t have a balloon so big. So Sthir gave an idea, he told them to use banner for balloon cover. For balloon he suggested to use many small balloons and cover them with banner. The officer liked the idea and approved.

After that Sthir went to college’s NSS (National Service Scheme) office, he become member and gave his first idea on first day. He suggested that they must aware people to give their children pulse polio drop. The idea was approved and NSS volunteers started the work. So he got permission to put balloon with pulse polio message.

He fitted three of his cameras around his college so that he could see full college. Heena came to him searching. She was upset that he was not attending class from yesterday. He told her about his services to society. She was excited by the idea to help people, so she also become NSS member and started work with them especially with Sthir. Soon three big banners were flying over college. Problem was just one these were supposed to be bringing down daily and replace balloons.

Now Sthir was able to keep an eye on whole college at night. He checked his computer at night a night vision was showing. Full college was showing like outlines. Two images were showing in colleges. But these were street dogs that got some way to enter in college. College guard was sitting on college gate. Everything was ok.

Next day he got up early and went to NSS office got keys of roof and replace the balloons so that nobody could see the cameras. His work was done. He came to class. He was the first student who came in class. He opened his beg and pulled out a book on physics which he took from library. He was really early, nobody came to class yet but Sthir was not the person who was missing any of them except one. He was reading the book when someone came near him and a sweet voice came in his ears “Hi”

He lifted his head Heena was there. Today she was in white jeans and a colorful top. She was looking stunning. She gave him her same beautiful smile and again said “Hi”

Sthir was so lost in seeing her beauty that he forgot to reply, second time he controlled himself and said “Hi, How are you?”

Heena smiled and said “See the weather, is it time to read a book? Even out teacher took leave to enjoy the weather.”

“But I have a class to attend… What? Mr. Sharma is on leave? That’s why class is empty.”

“Oh come on, let’s have coffee in the canteen.” Heena caught his hand and pull gently.

Sthir didn’t like to go but he was not able to say no to Heena. He put back the book in beg and both started to go to canteen. Their class was on first floor when they were going down two of their class mates were sitting on stairs. They looked them together and a naughty smile came on their lips. Sthir got the point what they were thinking he looked at Heena but she ignored them, a cute smile was on her lips also.

It was not like Heena was not beautiful, she was really beautiful, and many students were trying to talk to her but she liked Sthir. Both came to canteen and ordered two coffees. First time Heena got a real chance to talk to Sthir in real way. Heena started to ask Sthir about his family, his friends and his Past. Sthir was confused because he knew that he lost many years. He didn’t know where he was or if he knew he never told anyone about that past. He knew before coming to college that this question would be raised so he had already made a story about his school and life. He told the same to Heena. Heena didn’t doubt as it was normal story or because she loved him so much that anything which he would say She will believe him.

Rajesh was also in the same strange condition. He was in Sthir’s class so Sthir knew him very much. First time he got the chance to meet some victim and he didn’t lose that. He immediately went to Rajesh and guided him to class. No teacher had come yet. He told all others to clear the place so that Rajesh can get air, crowd can depress him in this condition. Many students went away but some were still there. He took Rajesh to nearby bench. They set there and Sthir tried to talk but Rajesh didn’t give any response. He was lost somewhere. Hiding from others eyes, Sthir pinched him on his back but Rajesh didn’t’ winced or complained. Sthir checked his eyes there were ok but not responding to any view. He put his hand around Rajesh’ neck, they were in open and he couldn’t check him fully. So he was showing that he is comforting him and was checking so much which is possible there. He felt one burn mark on his neck backside. He checked immediately, there was two burn marks on Rajesh’s neck in back side. That was covered with hair so no one could see without removing the hairs. He also felt his pulse and blood pressure while holding him. It was one of his new ability which he got after his disappearance. Rajesh’s pulse was heavy and blood pressure was high. His breathing was also not normal it was fast. Gathered students were also interested now, but Sthir didn’t show them that marks and removed his hands and gazed. Students didn’t understand whether he saw something or not.

Teachers came and Sthir handed over Rajesh to them. Principal called for police also. Sthir left for class, today there was a test, so he hurriedly came to class. Heena was waiting for him in class, when she saw him she waved to him to come to her. She was saving a seat near her for him. Sthir didn’t want to break her heart so he went there and sit near her. He knew that he can’t concentrate on all the evidences while she is there but he couldn’t ignore her. She was his one of best friends and he always liked her smile so much. Today she was in her red and green suit which was his favorite. Heena didn’t like that suit much but when Sthir praised her, it became her favorite also. She told him that class was cancelled due to this incident so was test. Now they have full period free. Sthir tried to go but Heena didn’t let him. They started to talk, first Sthir’s mind was calculating all the possibilities but now he left the topic and drowns in her endless talking.

Students started to talk about ghosts. Someone spread rumors about ghosts. Some claimed that they have seen some strange transparent things. It is easy to believe in ghosts in India because from childhood we are taught to believe in supernatural things which can be ghosts or divine powers.

After college he went to his hostel. He started to put all incidents together, he noted all on sticky notes, one incident on one note. After this he put all on the wall. These incidents were happening in night, in college. The culprit was not waiting for only one; two persons were attacked by him in same time. One thing was common, all told lies except last one which was not clear. In first case Jai also lied to his parents that he was going to a special class. Sthir was confident that Rajesh also told lie to his parents and came to college. He talked to Rajesh’s best friend Mona. First she told that she doesn’t know anything but Sthir got the hint that she was telling a lie. So he threatened her that he is calling the cops. She became afraid and asked Sthir not to call cops. She was ready to tell everything on one promise that her name must not come in this case. Sthir promised because he knew that she was not a culprit. She told that Rajesh came to college to hide some notes so that they both could use these in today’s test. So it cleared that Sthir’s theory was right that whenever someone came in college with a lie he become victim. But question was “Why? Who is doing this? What is his problem if someone is lying?”

It was clear it was not work of ghosts because Sthir saw some strange marks on the neck of Rajesh. It could be possible that it is only a coincidence because he didn’t check it on other victim’s body. So he wanted to make it sure. He knew Akshit was in which hospital. So he went there to meet him. His mother was there. Sthir introduced him as his classmate so she allowed him to meet Akshit. Sthir asked her mother for a glass of water, while she was filling glass with water, Sthir checked Akshit’s neck. There were same marks like Rajesh’s. Now it was getting clear that this was due to some science experiment. But who was able to do this? This was a very high level technology which is not known existence on earth. Sthir was preparing himself to fight a genius scientist.
