Magical lamp : a fairytale disaster which seems to be good at first but comes back to become the worst. Genie the extraordinary wish fulfillment being.. Genies always fulfil our wishes without questioning but mine gave me a life saving lesson... Quiet astonishing.. No? 


I was sitting by the seashore, feeling the smell of Aur flowing through my face, describing its experiences of being the purest, sand was becoming cooler and fishes were showing their diving skills as if a competition was going on.. The sun has already wished me a goodbye and went away spreading a love light of orangish red color in sky.

Having declared walking as the best fitness mantra, I started my way to the end.. But while walking what I saw was magnificent.. Water had delivered a fascinating lamp. 

Brown golden color, bluish green crystals, singing its own pride it stood tall as a lean figure. I went close to it, thought I was dreaming... But oh no it couldn't be cause I never get such good dreams.

I picked it up, rubbed it as usually instructed in movies and out came a tall dark and handsome Genie. "Your command my master" he said. "Are you a real one? I mean whatever I'll say you'll consummate it?" I asked hesitantly. It said "whatever your wish is, it doesn't matter but remember I can only satisfy one wish of yours" I didn't care whether wish was one or many. I just needed it to clinch my wish.

I said " OK then If you can then kill me." "What, I mean I've seen people beg for money, fame etc and you are asking me to kill you? I don't think so it's a good idea and I cannot do that, killing my master would again transfer me into this lamp and I won't let that happen" he replied " Don't you think disobeying your master would put you to trouble, either way you'll die, so what's the matter, just KILL me!!" I commanded

"I'll kill you if you tell me why you gonna get killed" he said "I don't know what's the reason. I just don't find my life interesting, my parents always scolding me, I don't score well in class, teachers are fed up from me and soul doesn't support me. So I wish I could die" I replied. "Listen darlo, if life is not giving you entertainment then give it yourself like you are doing now, coming and sitting"

"But I don't have any friends, whom can I share my feelings with myself? It's too boring and that's why I thing death is a better option than life." "Go around and see those people, sitting in the cold road, nothing to wear, eat, talk.. " he continued "Did they decide to die.. No they felt that it is their fate to be like this and circumstances are the best way to teach a person about way they should be. Now look at you.. You have everything parents, teachers who guide you at every point of time without demanding enough. Isn't it sufficient to lead a healthy life? Do you need more? Ask children who don't have elements of live.. Their loved ones for whom thry cry their feelings out but is their anyone to support them. Still they hold up themselves", he finished with a sigh expecting me to Learn something "I'm sorry Genie, I guess I've committed a big mistake. I should respect all the special ones which HE has given me, doesn't matter they scold me, that is for my own good.. I'll never mind and also I'll go and apologize to them" 

Loved ones equal healthy and happy life I was about to say something further when I saw that a wave of water had made me wet and I looked no better than a monster. I got up, WHAT!!! It was a dream, could not thank the Genie enough

"I think sleeping is the only talent you've got to yourself.. No?? Sleeping till 11 in the morning, do you think this behavior will fetch you even a penny of marks, shameful!!" mom said furiously 

"Sorry mommy, I promise I'll be vigilant about my schedule and never going to let you down, I love you so much.. " I assured her but response came out to be too humorous to bear "I guess, I'm dreaming, I should probably sleep a little, maybe I'd broken my sleep cycle could be,... Honey.. See what happened to our daughter she is apologizing" 

And I embedded myself in hoards of laughter
