Dom – Where does God live?
Friend#1 –  In the wide cosmos beyond this planet.
Dom – Where does the devil live?
Friend#2 – On this planet!
Dom – Where on this Earth?
Friend#2 – He is fairly ubiquitous.
Dom – That may be true but he specifically haunts the steering wheels. As soon as a human lays his hands on the steering wheel – he gets the surge of power that infuses a sense of being all- powerful.
Friend#1 – Explain?
Dom – Review road traffic accident statistics, harsh traffic and licensing rules and examine the newspaper-archives for road-rage crimes – all your doubts shall soon dispel.

The trick to making good artificial snow without proper equipment is to use alternative materials. A good recipe for falling snow is simply to take laundry soap flakes and sprinkle them across the scene using an electric fan.

Using the right backdrop one can even show snowfall in Sahara desert explained the ‘Do it yourself expert’ of low budget film production.

Dom – Is it Chinese technology?          

DIY expert – Why only Chinese, film-makers across the globe use it.

Dom – Oh! I thought climate change is a Chinese hoax.

The first journalist of this planet Narad reached the cosmic-seat of Lord-Varun to find an empty 20th century chair in place of Makar  (Varun’s -throne) .

Dom had also just reached there. He had come to lodge a complaint about the inadequate availability of water on Earth and its  poor quality to the Lord of all-waters in cosmos.

Narad invoked Lord-Vishnu and enquired about Varun and Makar.

Dom – I think Makar has been sold to a circus and Lord-Varun has resigned from the post of God of all-waters in the cosmos.

Narad rushed to Lord-Vishnu’s cosmos, chanting – Narain, Narain.

Manipulating Rivers

Prompt  ….

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Louise with The Storyteller’s Abode. Thank you Louise!
The Great-leader needed ideas to fulfill his electoral promises.  He called a meeting of his advisors (somehow Dom had got himself selected to this august group).
GL outlined his problem and asked for suggestions.
A senior advisor suggested riverfront development – essentially it is river-bank beautification and real estate development that would help to raise funds for the government and the party. By linking it with river restoration and water transport – it helps to assuage the moral middle class that is so bothered with environmental pollution, the advisor explained.
GL nodded his head wanting to know more.
It would provide lucrative government contracts to your work force and also generate jobs – another advisor.
GL appeared to be convinced.
Rivers cannot be cosmetically dressed up. They are a force that nurture the world but if maltreated tend to disappear, interjected Dom.
GL – How long does it take a river to disappear?
Dom  – Sometimes just a few decades.
GL’s eyes twinkled – I doubt if I shall last for more than a decade.

Dom peered at the shelves in the pub. He was searching for his favorite JWB. Suddenly he realized that there was not a single name he was familiar with.
The bartender knew that look  ………. ‘what is your pleasure today, sir?’
I would be happy with a large JWB!
 We do not serve that type of alcohol, sir!
What kind do you serve here?
We do not serve alcohol made by fermentation. All alcohol here is derived from ethene through cracking of crude oil.
———— You mean you serve alcohol made from mineral oil.
Yes sir.
Dom walked out.

Guests

Prompt  ….

PHOTO PROMPT – @Melanie Greenwood

It has now come to the last battle. Our cosmic cousins must destroy those from darker planets once and for all.

In the event of a victory by the sun-less – the cousins will lose their planets and take shelter on earth ….. a reversion of the original exodus. The implications are mind boggling.

For the first time in cosmic history humans will play host to a plane-full (disguised UFO) of cousins and will then have to face the onslaught of their sun-less enemies.

‘May be they are the mythical non-earthly deities that we worship’, Dom said reading my thoughts.
