After having read the article in "The Times of India", a vague thought runs in my head.It may sound really wierd but how I wish it was true. The article talked about a new planet discovered in another orbit which revolves around a star in a different solar system altogether.
"A rocky planet, same size as the Earth has been discovered orbiting a star like our sun." That sounds a bit of fun.
"Although the planet, Kepler-20f could have a thick water-vapour atmosphere, its
surface is believed to be too hot for life. "
As I read through these lines my witty brain was thinking beyond physics and astronomy. A set of "what ifs?" questions popping up, I was lost in an imaginary world - yeah of course, I had landed on Kepler-20f :0
I was standing in the centre of an island which was densely covered with coconut trees.Mild tropical climate and the wonderful shore. It was perfect to the ultimatum. The roaring waves and me walking on the sand , was an euphoric experience.
Far in the distance I saw a person like object moving closer to me. I was shocked to see myself in another person as she walked and stood right in front of me. What nonsense am I talking.. No I am serious , it was my twin on Kepler-20f. She was making sounds and reciprocated the same way I did. Screamed with joy, jumped with emotions, hugged each other and as we do that I noticed one huge wave wich was rising high and it rose higher within seconds ... and I opened my eyes.My candid thought process was broken and I was on planet earth, in my sweet home. Gosh! that was scary indeed but quite a nice experience. How I wish I'd spent a little more time with the other me from Kepler-20f.
That noon I shared this with my sis and she went more crazy with her version of the twin story. "What if every one had a twin there ? what language do they talk in? How do we communicate?" Oh Lord save us from these hilarious talks!
"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities. ~ Dr. Seuss "
