I woke up in the morning, with my mother shouting, '' Wake up, wake up, son. You have a letter from ...uh.. the government''. I was thouht my mom was jokin, but then i reliased that my mom mostly never jokes. I was very amazed that i got a letter from my country's government and my mother also, because in 2021 people usually only got letters from banks or insurance companies only. So i instantly woke up, went to the washroom, wash my eyes, brush my teeth,
and hurriedly came back to mom, who was cooking in the kitchen( my favorite breakfast 'Poha'). I asked my mom about the letter, '' where is the letter now you were talking about?'' My mom just pointed towards the table. While i was opening it, she added,'' read it aloud, son''. So mom here goes the letter from the government''.
From Rashtrapati Bhavan ( Official name of the president's House and office)
To Alok Bhardwaj,
The the President and the Prime Minister Of India wants to meet you along with your Parents. So if you can, then please report at the Rashtrapati Bhavan on 7th April, 2021. The matter is very important so we can not inform you about it through the letter. The Tickets to Delhi ( Capital of India) and a QR code is sent along with the letter.
President Of India
( Signature )
I,without looking at my mother and without saying anything, checked the tickets and the QR code that were in the letter's envelope. I handed them over to my mother. She wore a Shocked expression on her face. She just take the tickets from me and evaluate them and let me see them also. '' Mamma, they can't be fake, see they are looking like original tickets and even first class tickets of airlines and their is the official stamp of the government on this letter. Let's check the QR code''. When I scanned it,i was redirected to a webpage, where a pdf was downloaded to my mom's mobile. After opening the pdf the first thing that came on the screen was a mobile number and written beneath it ' call when you get the letter'. I asked my mom what to do and she said for calling the number. The ringing starts but no one was picking it up, so i tried again, when the ringing was about to stop, a man's voice said, '' Sorry, sorry, i was outside so i can't hear the call. So may i know who are you? and why have you called me?"
'' I called you because i received a letter from the government and there was a QR code inside it and when i scanned it, i found your number." The man replied, " so i am talking to Alok Bhardwaj, i was waiting..." "Don't call me Bhardwaj, I am Alok Joshi, I never used that man name, so don't call...." My mom shouted angrily at me," Alok, how many times do i have to tell you to speak politely to others and don't be rude to him, he is big than you, you should just apologise to him and don't call your father 'that man'. " Mom i will apologize but never accept that man as my father." My mom was about to slap me but the man started shouting on the other side of the phone, " Can you two please stop your argument, I have a information to give you, I don't know about your family matters but from today i am your in-charge and.." " First sorry, uncle ji( 'ji' is a honorific suffix used in India to show your respect towards others. Like in Japanese 'san' is used). And now you can say what you are saying" " First let me verify that i am talking to the real boy, then i will tell you the information that you have to be given. Tell me your features like your height, eye colour, etc., your mother's father's name, and the main question to verify your identity- why you don't use your father's name? or why you hate your father?" I replied furiously, " My age 14, and will be 15 on the day of meeting with the president, my height 5 feet 6 inch, my mother's father's name- Mr. Dharmpal Joshi, My hairs are black, eyes brown, and I study at G.H.K.P.S. Jaipur, in class 10, i recently passed 9th and got promoted to 10th, My weight is 50 kg and i am good at skating, etc. and I don't want to discus the last question because if you are verifying the details than you should have enough information about me and the fact that you asked the last question is that you are following our family for a long time, am i correct?" He replied instantly, " Well all the details matches, and you are saying right, well i can't tell the details about why have we doing this but all i can say is that you have to come to Delhi and meet the president and don't worry about why you are being called? Other kids are also being called there. And the tickets have every details written behind them and scroll down the pdf more, you will find another QR code and when you scan it, money will be transferred to your mother's account for other expenses by the government" I was shocked, why the Government would do this, but before i can ask anything my mom asked the man, " why the government sending us money, and why even being called to the president, and what about the fake envelope on the letter.." " Which fake envelope, mom, why would..." " Don't speak in between your mother's talk, Alok, and sir, why would i believe you, this could be a trap by his father or why do you have so much information about my family" " For now i can only say this, check the fake envelope thoroughly and you got a intelligent son, who immediately understood the situation and believed me, he should have a strong reason and also he found out that we are following you and him. Well than bye and YOUR INTERSTS ARE THE KEY TO YOUR FUTURE." And with that he ended the call.
"Mamma, i really can't believe why is this happening,I don't know I have to be sad this could be a trap or happy i am being called by the president." i started crying. My mom stopped me, " Alok, we don't know anything, we don't know what do we have to do. But surely we will find the right path, but see it's 7:15 already you have to go to school. Today is your first day in your new class 10, you should not get late, we will talk about this when you get home, OK? and sorry i can't make lunch today, i will give you 20 rupees, go buy at canteen, please, I am really sorry as i can't make lunch." " No problem, mamma, you also have to go to job and this morning we both are shocked, so let's talk at evening,bye."
So this was the start of my new day of my new session and first morning of class 10.
