Narrator: Meet Mr. Yogesh Chandra, a pass-out from WE school. Like all Welingkarites, Yogesh is high on his core values of breakthrough thinking ,breakthrough execution,result-driven work ethic, innovation,blah-blah…..He is very superstitious and wears amulets and rings for improving his self-assumed wretched life. Boletoh..apna hero bilkul 3idiots ka Sharman Joshi….
Yogesh: (to himself) Yaar, ye sab hisab to saala tally hi nahi ho raha. Mere ad budget ki toh ekdam mother-sister ho gayi hai. Upar se saala peechle budget meeting me maine jo gas baata….jo gas baata…..uska ROI ab boss chun-chun dega. (Pointing to his left) Baitha hoga kamina 500 degree tak saliye garam karke.

Scene 3: Yogesh's home:
His wife is sitting in the living room. She is watching her favourite TV soap. Clip plays: "Nahi……nahi…… nahi……."
Yogesh enters the scene. He is looking very tensed. His wife is having tea. She glances over her shoulder and sees a stressed-out Yogesh and drops the teacup melodramatically. Swiftly, she approaches Yogesh.
Wife: Baby! Kya hua baby! Itne tension me kyu ho?
Yogesh: Vaat lag gayi hai….vaat! Pichle campaigns me kuch zyaada hi kharcha ho gaya. Panauti lagi hai saala jab se company join ki hai, roz roz baj rahi hai. 2 din diye hai boss ne.

Don't you worry baby. Parvati ne bhi apne pati ke liye ek baba ko bulaya tha. Me Parvati ko abhi Whatsapp karti hu.
Yogesh: Dekho tumhara whatscrap baadme karna. Mujhe abhi dua ki nahi, dawa ki jarurat hai. Sar fataa jaa raha hai, me sone jaa raha hu.
Wife: Are khana to kha lo…..(Sad puzzled look)
(Yogesh leaves the scene.)

It's already around noon. Yogesh is still sleeping. His wife enters the room.

Yogesh wakes up, startled at the cacophony of the bugles.
Both of them walk out to the living room. The door is already open. 6 chelas walk in. They assume their position for a 3-a-side guard of honour. Anviksha walks in.
Anviksha: Param gyaani…..Vidvaan…..………(Kuch punches daalo)………………….Baba Guerilla padhaar rahe hai……!
*Bugles*

Wife: Kya??
Anviksha: Acche accho ki naya paar lagayi hai.
Wife: Ohhh….to thik hai..

Anviksha: Hmmm…..ye koi aam baba nahi hai. Ye jaadu-mantra ki vidya me believe nahi karte. Ye BRAND-vidya ke gyaani hai. Ye dekho baba Red-Bull guy ke saath, ye prahlad kakkar ke saath, aur ye Philip Kotler ke saath.

Power of Story

...I have to admit, going shopping for books can definitely be entertaining, but I must also confess that when it comes to buying books, I am a little bias toward novels with pretty pictures on the cover. Maybe it is because in today’s society we are taught to judge everything by appearance, but maybe it is really because growing up my dad read me books with lots of colorful images before bedtime and usually the prettier the pictures in the story the better it was. In books for younger kids most books contain extravagant images accompanied by a few simple words. The artist’s job for children’s books is, in my opinion, is more important than the author’s. I relied on the artist to tell the story, like Mozart relied solely on music to get across his story. When I started to move on to chapter books such as the Cam Jansen series, I would flip through the book, letting the pages fly underneath my thumb, and be disappointed at the lack of color. Not a single picture appeared. I thought that it was the worst thing in the world because it meant from then on I would be forced to read dull pages. Contrary to my initial thoughts, when I cracked open that first book I was unable to put it down until I finished. I was amazed at how I had just seen into another person’s mind and lived with a different identity for that hour. I was no longer Sam Maxwell, I was Cam Jansen the crime solver. I had my own private movie showing in my head. I read lots of Cam Jansen books following the first one......

...short stories, 250 words long look up, look to the sides, just don’t look at the reflection in the bar mirror She’s a red dress and thick rimmed glasses and all sorts of wit and intelligence in conversation. Next to her is a man that’s just a little more dim witted and a flannel shirt that was pressed just slightly too recently. And all around them are duplicates; replicants- people that are acquaintances or soon to be fair weather friends. All around them are life paths that they were one butterfly away from taking. The woman in the red dress is yawning now- opening her mouth so wide people near her can see the fills in her molars- but she doesn’t yawn consciously. She is uncouth without even giving a thought to it. She is feeling tired. More importantly, she’s feeling hungry- trying to eat in all the air that is around to prove to herself that her heart still beats and it’s not all just a dream. Among all of the people by the bar there is color- various colors- some bright, some subdued and pastel. The coloring of their clothing tell stories that are alike in their uniqueness. She lays one hand on the bar and shakes her head. He looks at her, concerned, and asks what’s wrong. “Nothing,” she lies. “Are you sure?” he asks. “Yes. Let’s dance.” She takes his hand out of his pocket, lifts him away from the bar, and they sway back and forth, back and forth, until all the notes blend into one beat. Until she can create the......

...the message in the story. The waiting room can be a symbol of purgatory for some. “The doctor’s waiting room, which was very small was almost full when the Turpins entered and Mrs.Turpin, who was very large in her presence” (revelation 191) If O’connor would not have put in the story wouldn’t have as much meaning “it takes every word in the story to say what the meaning is.” (O’Connor 334) This critic being O’connor herself, implies it takes everything necessary to establish the meaning in the story. Without the waiting room Mrs.Turpin revelation would not have been a reality. The key to the waiting room is when Mary Grace throws the book at Mrs.Turpin, another example of symbolism. “The book struck her directly over her left eye.”(206) It is with this act that helps Mrs. Turpin achieve her revelation. The throwing of the book is seen as symbolism because that violent act opens the eyes of Mrs.Turpin. “the short story requires more drastic procedures then the novel because more has to be accomplished in less space.”(333) This critic feels this act of symbolism must be drastic enough because it will be the only thing capable of showing the error of her ways. It was essential that the book was thrown, Mrs.Turnpin being how full of herself as she was, because the violence was the only way it would be the only way to get her revelation. What Mrs.Turpin dialogue is key, without her smug talk there would be no story. She degrades many people in the story, and she......

Stories and Consequences of War

...joining the army. There are two stories that help to explain what exactly you do in the army and the effects it has on you. One of the stories is "Soldier's Home" by Ernest Hemingway and the other one is "How to Tell a True War Story" by Tim O'Brien. Both stories have similarities and differences. They are told from different points of view and different situations. “Soldier’s Home” is mainly about a boy named Krebs. Krebs is a boy who enlisted in the Marines in 1917 and did not went back home until summer 1919. I think that Krebs is the way he is because he went away to war without being fully mature. He ended up growing up while in the war, away from his family and everyone he loved. He came home from war so much later because he did not want to face the changes that have happened in his town. I think he was scare to come home because war also changed his way of thinking. Krebs does not get involved with women once he's home because he does not want to work to get a girl. He thinks that American girls are too complicated and that he needs to go through many things to get one of them. He got used to the way European women were because without you talking to them, they would become your friend. Now, thanks to his mother's advice, he is thinking of becoming successful in live. Things like getting a job are rounding his mind. “How to Tell a True War Story” is about O’Brien’s own experience as a soldier and a story his friend told him. The story is mainly about things that......

How Theme Shapes a Story

...Theme Shapes a Story By Trina Carr English 125 Instructor: Clifton Edwards Running Head: Theme page 1 Like many people who haven’t studied literature, if someone asked me what the theme of a story was, I would have given a synopsis of the story detailing the actions and characters in it. As I have come to learn, theme is much more than a distilled retelling of a story. Theme gives a story a deeper meaning. The theme focuses the story and is the behind the scenes force that propels the story forward. In other words it gives the story purpose and shape. “Theme will attempt to hold all the elements of your story in place. It is like a cup. A vessel. A goblet”(Bain, T 2010). In this paper will attempt to explore how literary elements like symbolism and character build and affect the narrative of theme in a story. One element of a story’s theme is symbolism. Symbolism according to our text is something that has a literal identity but also stands for something else (Clugston, R 2010). For an example the five interlocking ring of the Olympic symbol. Clearly they can be identified as ring, but when they are colored blue, yellow, black, green and red, they become much more. They are a symbol of the pinicle of atheletic compition and excellence. Symbolism in literature gives the writer’s work texture. It is one element that is used to provide the reader with a deeper meaning of the story. It is what......

...The themes of short stories are often relevant to real life? To what extent do you agree with this view? In the short stories “Miss Brill” and “Frau Brechenmacher attends a wedding” written by Katherine Mansfield, the themes which are relevant to real life in Miss Brill are isolation and appearance versus reality. Likewise Frau Brechenmacher suffers through isolation throughout the story and also male dominance is one of the major themes that are highlighted in the story. These themes are relevant to real life as women are likely to suffer more in their life than men. In Miss Brill one of the central theme is isolation as Miss Brill is mentally isolated this is portrayed when she takes her fur out of the box which is symbolic of Miss Brill’s situation as she starts to have conversation “dear little thing it was nice to feel you again” this represents Miss Brill’s mental state, the way she shares her feeling with fur which is a object, highlights how desperate she seeks acceptance from person whom she can have conversation. This is significant when old couple do not have conversation with her at the park “disappointed Miss Brill as she looked forward for conversation”. This shows she is being rejected by people of her own age and also shows her egoistic behaviour as she expects the couple to have conversation with her. The theme isolation is relevant to real life as Mansfield uses Miss Brill to suggest reader that as human age they begin to feel emptiness in their......

The Story of an Hour

...home, Cook, clean, and take care of the children and her husband. Many females with a low education tend to follow their husbands commands. These circumstances are shown to us In The Story Of An Hour, by Kate Chopin, she explains in her short story how men and women observed life. Men were responsible of certain things and women were responsible of certain duties as well. This was normal for a typical matrimony in the late 1800’s. In this short story the protagonist, Mrs. Louise Mallard, lives with her husband, Mr. Mallard, in a rural setting. There has been a railroad disaster in which people think Mrs. Mallard husband was involved and died. Kate’s sister Josephine does not know how to tell her sister about the incident since Louise suffers from heart problems. Once Louise finds out about the incident, her first reaction is to cry and run to her room. Kate Chopin uses positive description to describe the room. Even though she had just gotten the news of her husband passing away, we can see all the positive things that Louise observes outside her open window. This shows that she is sad since she is crying, but at the same time it’s the readers first indication that she feels a sense of Freedom now to observe anything out there in the world. She feels free to make choices of her own. As the story goes on, she has mixed feelings; and we...

The Story of an Hour

...“The Story of an Hour” Brian Williams English 125 Melissa Eidson April 8, 2013 “The Story of an Hour” I have chosen to describe the theme for “The Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin in 1894. Theme in fiction is associated with something abstract, something broad. The theme in a story is associated with an idea that lies behind the story. I will give great insight on identifying two of the literary elements in the short story that contribute to the theme. The point of view and symbolism will be the two literary elements, I will provide with examples. Explaining how the selected literary elements affect the narrative theme will be a vital point to this literary work. The theme of Chopin’s piece is essentially a longing for more freedom for women. Chopin reflects her rejection of the “postures of femininity” through her character’s descriptions. She describes her as young with a fair calm face whose lines bespoke repression. Men in the 19th century looked for young and calm attributes in a wife. They wanted a submissive woman to tend to their needs as Chopin’s description suggests. Chopin says that Mrs. Mallard would live for herself. Mallard believes she will be free of marriage, and won’t be repressed as aforementioned any longer by her husband. Chopin displays her character as having a joyous moment after the death of her husband because she is let go being forced into her femininity. Chopin displays a need for more independent women in this piece, suggesting that......

Short Stories

...Rainsford and Mme. Loisel. Both Characters go through a dynamic change opposed to a static change. A dynamic change is when a character undergoes a severe change over the course of a story; A static change is when a character does not undergo severe change since the start of a story such as no Point of View changing or no way of thinking changing. In the story “The Necklace” Mme. Loisel starts off as a snobby “I deserve better” type of person. “She suffered endlessly feeling herself to be born for every luxury and riches”. This quote States that at the starting of the short story before she lost the necklace she was wining about how she deserves better. After she loses her friend’s necklace instead of telling her friend the truth she goes on an “adventure” trying to find the exact same necklace. “We must see about replacing the diamonds” this quote states that instead of saying the truth (which would’ve helped) she planned to just replace it to make herself look good. ”Oh my poor Mathilde but mine was merely an imitation.” This shows how much the Truth could’ve helped her instead of Loan sharks and replacing the necklace. This is an example of Dynamic change as it changed her way of thinking. In the story “The Most Dangerous Game” Rainsford also goes through a dynamic change. At the start of the story Rainsford did not care at all about what he was hunting and how much pain/fear it goes through. “Who cares what the jaguar feels”, “Bah, They’ve no understanding”.......

...Elizabeth Smith ENG 125 Introduction to Literature Ashford University April 24, 2012 Instructor: Benjamin Daw When learning the ropes of literature you must pay close attention. My understanding to literary themes is going beyond what the title to the short story is. The short story theme I am going conduct on is “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ by James Thurber (1973). In this short story the literary elements being used is plot and symbols and the theme being full of distractions and disruption. The narrator is giving a third person point of view in sharing the thoughts of the characters. Walter Mitty the daydreamer is very humorous in the different plots of his drifting off. In the start of the story the plot, symbols, distractions, and disruptions started when the daydream started. The first daydream Mitty was a commander in an 8-engine Navy hydroplane. In this daydream he said Rev her up to 8500! When awakened by his wife driving fifty-five causing disruption and his wife saying I only go forty he was silenced. Mitty still driving through Waterbury and stopping to drop his wife off at the hairdresser, she reminded him to pick up the overshoes and to wear his gloves. Mitty put the gloves on and the second daydream followed. In this daydream Mitty was a famous surgeon who was asked to help a rich Englishman. This rich Englishman was a friend of President Roosevelt, “It’s the millionaire banker, Wellington McMillan,” said the pretty nurse. (Clugston, 2010). Walter...

The Zoo Story

...something happens. Experiences can cause things like grief, enlightenment and can change the path of someone’s life or how they view the world and their outlook on life. “Literature offers an experience” to me means when you read story it makes you feel like your living that experience, feeling how the characters felt, the pain, the joy, the hate and the hurt. You as the reader are learning the lessons with the character and taking the morals of those stories and applying them to real life. It’s like you lived that experience and take everything that someone who did live that experience takes from their experience and apply it to your life without having to actually go through it.
