    Robot

    The Era of Genetics: <2118 A.D> An Extract from “News Today” “…Call it a miracle, call it a breakthrough… We have finally succeeded in creating a robot with a brain engineered through Genetics and Nano-technology. At last, we bid adieu to our good old semiconductor chips.

                                  Mystery of the Misery                                                                    Let Grief striketh upon thee….

The Du pont’s would have remained in France.. Mother Teresa would have been a charming daughter, wife, mother and grandmother.. Dada would have remained retired Sourav Ganguly..(This must have been the work of a hacker – mind hacker?) Years of Struggle, Years of Pain, All to see…
