Encounter

Well, on behest of a very dear friend I tried my hand a dialogue series, something that could be adapted in play format… hope it makes an enjoyable read ….

What happens when two people get stuck in the most predictable place? Yes, yes, it is a lift. And if that lift is in a government building and the emergency button is not working either, mobiles are not catching signals, you have two options one pray to God that someone will realize it and arrange for help. If you are an atheist like these two then start chatting up, after all who knows for how long you are in there.

Do I need to add that it helps that out of the two people who are stuck, one is a girl so the guy need not worry about how to start a conversation :), but is he game for a chat with a stranger? She could prove to be a threat. Though he is the one she should fear.

G: (talking to herself); I should have sent by office chap for this job, but no, Ms. Sharma is too independent. (Stomps her high heel)

M: Gives her look from the corner of his eye and gets back to figuring out a way to open the door.

G: How do they expect this country to develop when a stupid lift also doesn’t function properly in a Govt. building. Did you manage to fix it?

M: Huh, you talking to me?

G: Who else is here besides the two of us?

M: (Adjusts his shirt). This is India, madam. I think it is your first time inside a Gov building

G: Hey, what’s that inside your shirt? A Gun? You have a weapon? Are you an under cover cop? Is this building under some threat? HelllllllllP!

M: Will you stop shouting, its 5:30 pm, and if you know how govt. offices work then you would know that everyone leaves from office an hour before. I am not a cop. I am a terrorist with ATTACK TW group.TW is our copyright for ‘The World’

G: Really, no wonder my job wasn’t done. I tell you paying taxes are such a waste in this country. After a second, did you say terrorist? HellllllP!!

M: Stop shouting, I am not going to harm you anyway, I am no petty gunda. I work with the ‘TW’, (with a chin-up)

G: What are you doing in this lift then? What work do you have here? Are you not supposed to be in a place like J & K

M: laughing- Spoken like a totally educated yet unaware Indian

G: After a pause; you speak in English, which is rather good, you are well dressed (an expression of surprise) then how can you be a terrorist? They are supposed to be brash, inhuman, dangerous and of course from the uneducated poor class.

M: (raises his hand as a sign of exasperation – Time for you to know the real terrorist, then. Most are rather well- educated, come from well-to-do families. Terrorism is no longer a ‘poor man’s’ job.

to be continued…

    Advance apologies for the comment.

    But the dialogue looks disjointed. Looks like you are thinking more than what you are writing. I think you have written more free flowing dialogues and stories. Still struggling after the break?

    I agree
    “Terrorism is no longer a ‘poor man’s’ job.”
    because most of them are well educated. Oh did i forget to mention the money terrorists receive for their activities is provided by people of India.
