The Holocaust was not the end of the worldThe unknown, unnamed island in the Nicobar group of islands has fully awakened after a very long time. Those two thousand people living underground in this island have all come overground. The young ones are dancing in joy. The older ones are crying. But their tears are the tears of extreme happiness. The middle-aged people are taking every precautionary measure for the new-born baby and the mother. Some people are congratulating the proud father. Why not? This is the first birth after more than five years. This is the first birth after the Holocaust.
After those terrible years, this month has brought much good news. The air is now fresh and without any pollution. The people of this island, after long and continuous efforts, could contact some other people in India who have survived the Holocaust. Another two thousand people are living in earlier Bastar district of Chattisgarh state. Around three thousand people each are living at Pandalam of Pathanamthitta district of Kerala and also in the jungles of Vairengte in Mizoram. They survived because they had taken shelter in the underground shelters built for this purpose. They survived the terrible Nuclear Holocaust which engulfed entire Asia five years ago. And after long and painstaking efforts, the people of these settlements have now established contacts with one another.
But more good news awaited the people of this island. The first baby has been born here only. The new life has begun in the Indian sub-continent. The seed has sprung into life in this new spring.
Today the people of this island in Nicobar are remembering that old man. When crores and crores of people died during the Nuclear Holocaust in entire Asia, when the few survivors felt that irrespective of the relative safety of the underground shelters, they would also die sooner or later, the wise old man assured them. He said: "It's not the end of the world. Wait patiently. Good days will surely return. The old civilization of Inda will sow the seed of the new future. Prepare a peaceful, serene and different world for the new child who will surely arrive."
Today, the new baby is born. The Islanders are busy developing a new world order devoid of violence and narrow-mindedness, for the new baby.
