“Ok Tarakota village bye, I’m going to city now” Dheer shouted in his heart happily.
Tarakota village is a very small village, not more than 600 families live here. It is still backward village. The village is not touched by technology much. In the whole village only 4 to 6 televisions are there. Only two STD booths are present where people round up to call their relatives.
“Okay, Dheer be nice and I don’t want to hear any complaints from your uncle. Also, don’t forget to eat on time, no bad habbits...”
“Mom okay, okay I understand and don’t worry” said Dheer stopping her. He understands that she is worried and loves him very dearly.
It was a 10 hour journey to the city. He got on the bus and started. The moon was up already when the bus started.
As Dheer was on his way to the city, a shadow suddenly appeared at the pond near the village.
“Hmm the energy traces show it fell here, so where is it” he murmured looking around. “Did someone pick it, or any of the other candidates came first.”
The uncle where he is going to, is his mom’s brother, he stays in the Vihara city. It is completely modernised one with good opportunities.
Uncle Kumar is an average man, he looked tall with black eyes. He had a welding shop in the city. Kumar have a daughter Minah, who is same age as Dheer. She is friendly and good towards him.
That night he slept in a guest room. He fell asleep quickly, suddenly he felt a pulling and when he opened his eyes, he was near the pond in near his village. Dheer was shocked, he did not understand how he is standing here. He should be in his uncle’s house sleeping. “What’s going on?” he thought.
A light appeared infront of him, Dheer covered his eyes to see clearly. When the light vanished a man was standing in-front of him, one step above the ground, he was big, strong and had a light beard. His eyes were sharp and red like he had sleepless night.
“So, it selected you” he said with a sigh. “Fine, I don’t go back on my promise.”
“Excuse me mister, may I know who are you and where are we?” asked Dheer confused.
There was a sudden pain on his butt “Ou!” he rubbed his back and looked at the man, a cane was in his hand. Dheer did not see him moving so he did not understand how a cane appeared in the man’s hand out of nowhere.
“ You will be calling me ‘master’ or ‘guruvarya’ then the surroundings turned bright like morning sun arrived. The space was beautiful with greenery. A big house came up from the ground.
The next day when he woke up, he felt little tiered and different. He vaguely remembered his dream, very few things he was able to recollect from it.
“Dheer get ready quickly otherwise you will late for college” a sweet voice reminded him. It was his cousin Minah.
The day passed quickly and night arrived. As usual Dheer went to his guest room and slept. In the middle of the night he suddenly woke up with shock. His whole body was wet with sweating. He quickly lifted his shirt and looked at his upper body, it was completely normal and without scars.
He clearly remembered that he saw a variety beast or creature, it had the head of a peacock and three feet, those of an elephant, tiger and deer or horse; the fourth limb is a raised human arm. And there was some other beast beside it but he was not able to clearly see it just he vaguely remembers that it had the head of a lion.
“Hey kid you took his blood but not mine this is not good” a voice was heard.
Dheer jumped up and looked at the source. He saw a beast with lion head.
He shouted loudly as he saw something he never saw before.
