Short story by Pulkit Kalra – a 7-year-old student.
It was a sunny afternoon on 8th February 2060. It did not look like a usual day.
Suddenly, Tom, who was living in Japan, felt the ground shaking. Then from his window, Tom saw hot fireballs shooting out of the sky. This was followed by a big bang in his room. Tom was terrified.
As a science student, Tom didn’t believe in ghosts or aliens. He switched on the TV to find out what happened. The unthinkable was happening – Earth’s power was disappearing.
Now the solution is to move to another planet. They were discussing all kinds of scenarios – that there was zero gravity on another planet. Mars, because it had low gravity, would shrink our bones. Other planets were not livable – either because of their atmosphere or the temperatures and the lack of water. having gas or fluid or too hot or too cold.
Suddenly he heard a sound that said, ” wakeup-wakeup”. His mother was trying to wake him! I got up in shock! It was just a dream & everything was ok on Earth.
