An Excerpt from "The Heavensgate Scandal" (A Short Story by Vivek Pereira)

It was a hot flinter aftermoon on the Planet Zrrxy. The God shield had been switched on while the Tellicans discussed a top-secret mission. This shield was used by the inhabitants to ward off the presence of the almighty from the vicinity of their planet. Nothing, no sound, light or matter could penetrate this shield. It was the ultimate invention.

The Tellicans were a creative race whose influence had spread throughout the universe. There are many wild rumors about this ambitious race. Some say that they are the aliens who hover around the planet earth in flying saucers with the intention of monitoring the progress of humanity on the planet earth. Some even say that the Supreme Being was created by this technologically advanced race. These Tellicans were alleged to possess the most dangerous of all inventions viz. The Universe Reverser. This device could reverse the effect of the Big Bang so that the whole Universe would collapse into a tiny, primeval atom, and ultimately into nothingness. The dark angels of Satan were desperately plotting to steal the Universe Reverser from them.
The Tellicans had borrowed the concept of the Internet in the development of the Universenet which linked almost all intelligent life forms that existed in the world. Tellica, their cyberwebsite, was the most popular site which specialised in webcasting universal news.

At length, the Tellicans had finished their intense discussion. The God shield was off. Nobody, not even the almighty, was aware of what had transpired during the meeting (excepting for the Tellicans, of course).
The Gates of Heaven are enormous structures that prevent the extremely sinful from entering that cherished place. These gates were made up of Kryptonite which is widely considered to be the strongest element in the Universe. When the devils bombarded these solid gates, the ammunition had bounced off harmlessly into the dark void. The living dead formed a never-ending queue down the long, spiral staircase which originated at The Limbo. The supervisas were issued by the ministry only to those who had passed the test of life. A special supercomputer processed the track record of each individual case with the help of a complicated software program, ' The Morality Examiner'. A report was instantly generated that decided the outcome of each case. The supervisas were issued only if the results of the reports were positive.

"I'm sorry, but we cannot give you the visa," St.Jitley told a living dead, "You will have to go to Hell !"
The report had clearly indicated that the applicant had failed the test miserably. The applicant refused to budge an inch. He gave a sheepish smile and winked.
"What do you want ?" asked St.Jitley. "You will have to go away." "Yeah, yeah," said the applicant, absolutely out of context.

Is n t that double standards?

annahazare420 said...

Is n't what Kiran Bedi doing double standards. Fudging bills and saying it was for charity. And what if Raja decides to hereafter transfer all his ill-gotten wealth to charity. Should he then be absolved by Kiran Bedi's logic???
