Where The Two Parallel Lines Have Met
Lawrence Naresh

Gandhi did not have to practise non-violence, as there was nothing but peace, so he was fully immersed in his spinning wheel. Einstein did not have to think regarding the laws of physics as the facts were all known, he was busy playing on his violin. Mother Teresa did not have to take care of the abandoned and cast aways, as no such people were there. She was gardening and playing with the children , busy as she always was. The Pied Piper of Hamlet was playing a beautiful tone on his pipe but this time there was no better place to lead the children to. It was a beautiful day, as a matter of fact everyday was a beautiful day. Gandhi wanted a hot sunny day, like in India, Einstein wanted a rainy day so that he could play rain drops of water falling on my head. Mother Teresa wanted a cold day to take her back to her sweet childhood memories in Albania. The Pied Piper wanted a freezing day as he could put on a long thick winter coat. The children wanted a rainy day so that they could make their paper boats and get drenched in the rain and as there was no common cold or for that matter any sickness, the only thing they could experience was sheer joy. So it was a beautiful day as each one wanted.  

There was an unanimous decision to have a peep at the place where the two parallel lines were getting further and further away, the earth, date two thousand years after Jesus had visited it and there they were. By the way they had some codes which they followed by their own self will. The children who joined them on this visit had to take on the form of an adult atleast thirty years of earthly age. Whatever you wished happened and the people here wished only good. Things here happened at the speed of thought. Einstein felt so relieved that his E=mc square was based on the speed of light. As it was a Millenium event on earth, Adam and Eve decided to join them. It was the Grammy show Year 2000, Eve and Adam became nostalgic seeing Jeniffer Lopez almost like they were in the Garden of Eden before Luciffer deceived them. Gandhi too went down memory lane. Newton, who had joined them was amazed on seeing theElizabethTaylor likes, that his theroy for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction was still holding good, the force of gravity was offset by the force of silicon. There was this announcement by the female equality liberation movement, on earth that the last fortress of male chauvinism had crumbled, males too could be raped, thanks to Viagara. There was another magic pill in the R&D stages that could make human feces smell like Christian Dior or Ralph Lauren perfumes. Vow China and India had a great supply and in the Land of Opportunities the ecconomists and the corporate giants were working on increasing the visas for people who could supply the raw material for this hot need. The USA had this unique ablity to attract the best of talent from all over the world. Moses too joined them and started calculating the number of commandments that woud now be needed , tough job for the new guy they all thought. Suddenly, they noticed the Pied Piper, with tears rolling down his eyes and all the eyes were wet with tears, they all saw what was happening. Little Joe, Little Ram, Little Sara, the list was going on and on, ranging in ages from 20 earthly days to about 270 earthly days, were being taken by their mothers, at times accompanied by the fathers to be sacrificed for their own welfare! Oh what a gruesome spectacle. Their tender bones were crushed, flesh torn apart, sucked out and dumped in the garbage but what these great people who had now been joined by Solomon, could not comprehend was, the mother or both the parents thought it was good for the child and society at large. The Pied Piper had an impulse to take his pipe again and lead the children away. The war had been declared and the battle lines were clearly drawn. The tourists now decided to see what was happening in Lucifer's world and there they were. Luciffer and his deputies were thrilled at the way things were going. The bottom line here was hatred for things that bring about harmony and peace. Their goal was to extend the hate list, for they knew once the list for things to be hated was exhausted, they had only themselves to hate and the thought that the Luciferrians had only one thing to do in this world and that was to hate everything and eventually hate thyself for all eternity, was quite terrifying but they had willingly choosen it. Hitler who was treated like a hero was now a waste, as some parents had become Hitler's to their own children and this was a remarkable feat by all standards. Hitler had entered thefinal level in the Luciferian world, hate thyself for ever and ever in an endless circle. Nothing succeds like success and Luciffer was coming up with beautiful new schemes. If a father and mother could kill their defenceless child, it would be a piece of cake to get children who had become adults to kill their old parents who no longer looked good and could be an interference and a nuissance. Some catchy terms had to be incorporated for doing away with this sort of nuissance and the people had to feel what they were doing was good for the old people and the society at large. It was also decided that the boring old concept that 'a Adam and Eve' had to come together in marriage to produce a Adam JR was unnecessary and too boring. It was even decided to quote from Jesus's own words, to be like the flowers and the birds and to do unto others what you would like of them to do to you. So if a person decided it would be nice to have sex with another person and if it was mutual, this is what God always wanted. It was decided to bring Information Technology to make things easier for Earthlings who wanted to be free like the birds. Company Kisexco would manufacture micro chips, which woud help any person to have free acess to any other person to any part of the body as long as it was mutual. People in parts of the earth where adultery was punished with beheading would no longer have to be apprehensive of being caught. It was the king of chips and the future billion dollar industry of the world. The potential was awesome, a wife could be having cyber sex with another man and the husband not know about it and vice versa!

The visitors decided enough was enough and it was time, they met with Jesus. And Jesus was there with them. He addressed them, you want to know why all this is happening (Jesus knew what was in their hearts) but first tell me "Was AIDS from my Father or from Luciffer?If they said it was from the father, they would be accusing the father of being cruel;if they said it was from Luciffer how could Satan, ever curtail free sex. Jesus had kept up his reputation for being the same Yesterday, Today and the day after!

They then returned to the land where the two parallel lines had met. They decided that these happenings had to be made known to the earthlings and chose this guy, who had realized that his coming to America was a modern version of Alex Hailey's 'ROOTS' not captured but allured by illusions that he was going to the promised land, a land of opportunities for opportunists. He was not an opportunist and was now living the twenty first century version of the "SLAVES DREAM". What you have now read is the short story from him.
