In a city named Serendipity, known for its civility and diversity, there lived two friends Honesty and Dignity who were sitting in the restaurant named ‘The Liberty’, which was becoming empty. “You in love!?”, exclaimed Honesty with alacrity. “Yes”, replied Dignity with certainty. “Which is nothing short of a calamity, as she is feisty, lacks modesty or subtlety”. He sighed –“But she has vitality and is really pretty. Her name is Vanity, oh what do I do Honesty?”. Replied Honesty, “Well, just tell her”. “But how??”, wailed Dignity, “I will lose my identity, if she refuses”. Honesty said “I can understand your difficulty and I can tell you with authority that truth has the power of infallibility, so state with clarity what you want to say. I’m sure you have the ability”. “But yes, it is indeed cruelty, but make your choice according to your priority”. Dignity thought for a long time and said with finality, “Thank you Honesty, I will tell her”, and then he left ‘The Liberty’. Honesty sighed. He was in love with Infinity. The problem was she was a celebrity and he was a generality. “Ah, the futility”, he said and followed his friend into the city.
Infinity was meanwhile being wooed by Suavity who had this infinite capacity to be haughty and the same time witty. Towards him, Infinity was filled with animosity but out of civility, she tolerated him. He was saying- “Even the gusty wind in the trees on a full moon would writhe with shame when it sees you and the sun---”. “Whatever!” thought Infinity with immunity, and was filled with gaiety, when her deputy and secretary named Ms. Unity interrupted- “I’m sorry madam, but the producer Mr. Majesty called, and said that if you want the part which will earn you immortality, you must meet him now.” “But it is so late”, exclaimed Infinity with asperity. “May I! “, said Sauvity with magnanimity, “it is my duty to escort you my lady to the fatty’s residence”. “No please!”, Infinity replied with insobriety, “It has been years since I traveled in the city with anonymity, and if u have any sensitivity to my seeming irrationality you will leave me alone”, she finished with irascibility and stormed off in her dainty attire into the city night..
Infinity then shivered at the absurdity of the actuality. The full moon night was misty and she had long lost her ability to find her way around the city. Hearing raucous laughter laced with crudity and fearing for her own safety she fled into a back alley and rammed into Honesty who was looking at her with curiosity.
Meanwhile, Dignity had sought Vanity who was sitting on her stairway looking down at him with docility. The very fidgety Dignity finally proclaimed with exemplarity, “Oh Vanity, I know very well, the egocentricity which is a part of your heredity, I know you are haughty and lack humilty. But unlike others I see in you divinity, a certain frailty and hilarity, and I want to be with you until I’m ninety. I’ll love you for all eternity. If you say no, I’ll lose my individuality and throw myself onto gravity. Say u love me too”.
Vanity looked at him with impassivity but when she spoke her voice was frosty, “You dare question the nobility of my dynasty! you sure are guilty of immaturity, but alas“, she added “It is my inability to resist your surrender to inevitability gladdens me..”, in a tone filled with joviality “And that I am your destiny”. And so they sat in an empty lane and filled it with festivity.
At the same time Suavity was comforted by Serenity who was a friend of Duality, who was the cousin of Unity. Suavity crumbled to self pity and heartbreak was on the verge of insanity when Serenity in all her purity cured him with words and gestures of a calming quality.
Curiosity changed to incredulity as Honesty beheld her beauty and frailty. He said, “Miss Infinity, I am well accustomed to the poverty of the city, I shall lead you back to your suite” ,“you mean back to captivity”, said Infinity taken in by his simplicity and charity. “I no longer want to go to work for Mr Majesty, I don’t want to be a cinema deity. I just want to see and experience the world” . “Will you show me around now, for at night time conspicuity abandons me”, and so Honesty wearing morality and cordiality as a shining armor understood the enormity and feasibility of the situation and took her through commonality.
A year later, jaunty Vanity and a full of stability Dignity, hearty Suavity and a picture of tranquility Serenity and velvety Infinty with the wonderful Honesty met at “The Vicinity Club” to discuss with avidity the abstrusity of reality over tea.
