Good vs Evil: Good Samaritan Teens / Teen Rapists

Good vs Evil: What prevails more in our society? Good or Evil? We leave the choice to you to evaluate the society you belong to. However in this new section ‘Good vs Evil’ we bring out the two extremes of the social incidents. The good one which sets an example and ensure we raise our kids like them. And the evil one which makes us aware and ensure we raise our kids unlike them and enable them to protect themselves from such evils.

The Good: Good Samaritan Teens

The three teenagers from Ontario, Canada, went for a drive and spotted a stranger’s broken car. She was struggling with no help at the highway, who can’t afford to tow the vehicle. The boys decided to help her by pushing her car till her home. Interestingly, her home is not at the next street, but 7 miles far. But the good Samaritans did it. (Read the full story here)

The Evil : Teen Rapists

Rape-accused

In India, rape has become a routine crime and going on like it has no full stop. According to a report about 1,752 rape incidents are reported every year in the Indian state of Odisha, alone. But it saddens us, when the crime is committed by teenagers whom we can still call as boys next door.  A college student was allegedly gang-raped in Odisha’s Sundargarh by five youth, including three of her classmates, who dragged her into a forest on her way back to home after college.

Bottom line: Every kid is born with a blank soul, it is us the society and the parents who script their character. Teach them Good and make them practice it. Make them aware of the Evil and help them fight it.

Read : The Bench by Bala Iyengar, Blank Space

Bala Iyengar

The Bench is the first story of Blank Space. A story which conveys us the message that inspiration is not about winning or conquering our desires. But inspiration is all about contentment in life.

It is all about facing the truths of life without sadness, but remembering the memories on a positive note. Bala has given life to a Bench and it’s lifetime journey with a lovely couple.


Preethi Venugopala : ‘The Bench’ was the story that I liked most in Blank Space. The lyrical descriptions, the depth of the emotions that are conveyed through the few paragraphs, the characters…everything was memorable.

Sourav Ghosh : I loved it. Touched my heart.

Saurabh Mishra : Read it long back and somehow I felt that my story was coherent with it but just set in another spacetime(metaphorically). I loved the diction. it’s beautiful

Ruchi Chopra : The Bench- evokes strong emotions, celebrate passion of 2 souls….imagery is wonderful & vivid…diction is beautiful…I enjoyed reading it. Bala, best of luck!

Shail Raghuvanshi : Bala’s story explores the charm of sentiment and of nostalgia. It, so beautifully takes you back into time and draws you into the old world charm and beauty of love that is ever eternal, even after death. Thank you Bala.

Namita Sunder :  Soft, silken, soothing ‘the bench’ is like a fragrance you inhale and let it float slowly inside your being. Thanks Bala reading your story was a beautiful enriching experience.

Scribbling of the Day : Homeless Birds

Bird's home

A new Villa, a new dawn
His day started
with a lemon tea
and the fragrance of the mist.

There came a guest
He felt the poet in him
“Do you have a home?”
he inquired within.

“Look!” gestured
his guest flapped the wings
and began flying high to show
it’s little home – Earth!

His Villa
shrunk little as a hut.

Story : The Serial Pisser

serial Pisser

Once upon a time in China, not so long ago, just a few years back there lived a street dog called “Serial Pisser”. Doors, street posts, legs, kids, plants, flowers… the list has no exceptions, the dog thought it could piss everywhere and anywhere.

Some wise people ignored it, feeling pity because it was after all a dog and it would do what it always do. The dog took advantage of it and started getting into others’ home and pissed.

Some people got frustrated and pelted stone at the dog. Some pulled it’s tail. It barked at them and some people have to walk away with it’s stink. But that had no effect on the dog’s behaviour what so ever.

One fine day it entered a house and never returned. Poor dog didn’t notice the electric socket.

MORAL: When you know someone is a moron, do not waste your time. Be wise. Someday, morons will earn what they deserve for their deeds by themselves. We need not do anything. Just stay away from them.
