Queen Valen of Catmint

In times of yore, there was a little princess named Valen. She was five years old and was not loved by her parents because they used to argue all the time that they didn’t get much time to spend with her little daughter even when they go out together Valen feel neglected.

As time passed she became dejected and she doesn’t like to play or do anything.

One fine day her parents went out to attend a Masquerade ball as they were invited by the King of Azrak and Valen was left alone with the caretakers. As her parents left the Palace, she started crying and mumbled “No one loves me!”

The next morning when she wakes up, there was bad news waiting for her. Valen’s parents were killed by the King of Azrak. The Masquerade Ball was just a conspiracy to let the Kingdom of Valentina (Valen’s Kingdom) under the control of Azrak.

She was so little to understand the meaning of death. She asked one of her caretakers “What is death? And why are my parents sleeping and not answering me?” Then, one of the caretakers answered, “Your Highness! Your parents are gone in some other world where there are so many angels and fay live.”

As she grew up she learned what happened to her parents and how they died. She used to cry at night missing her late parents who didn’t had a minute time to make some happy memories with little Valen when they were alive.

14 February 1756, was Valen’s birthday. The whole kingdom of Valentina was celebrating this day with glee as her Highness is going to turn 21. Every Kings & Queens and their Heirs (Prince & Princess) were invited to Valen’s Birthday Celebration and Ball Dance.

In the evening, Valen wore a beautiful white gown and a Crown studded with a Diamond. She looks so beautiful and alluring. Her skin is white just like fresh White snow and her lips are pink like Azalea (beautiful pink flower). She looks like a goddess from heaven. Valen is a phenomenal Princess who is very kind-hearted and innocent. She was ready as well as nervous for a Ball dance because she has to dance with any Prince who offers his hand to dance with him and if she gives her consent for the dance then she has to marry the Prince. It’s an age-old tradition of the Valentina Kingdom when a princess turns 21 she has to choose a Prince for a ball dance and then marry him.

It’s time for her grand entry, she was nervous. As the door opens she dropped a deep curtsy (formal greeting) to her guests. Then, she started stepping down the stairs from one side and the Prince of Catmint, “Prince Chris” Offered his hand for a Ball Dance without any delay. Valen was impressed by his masculine style and fine gesture and said yes to the dance.

They Danced all night long and at midnight in front of all the Kings and Queens. Prince Chris gets down on one knee to propose Valen. Chris said, “I don’t know you believe in love at first sight or not but this evening is special in my life. I’ve never felt the way I’m feeling right now. I think I’m in love. Will you Marry me, Valen?” Valen was surprised but she knows that it’s the age-old tradition when the Princess say yes to a Ball dance to the Prince then she has to marry the Prince but besides this Valen also has the same feeling as Prince Chris has for her. Valen replied smilingly, “Yes! Thousand times Yes!”

Then, they got married. Valen was welcomed as a Queen in the Kingdom of Catmint. She was so happy and thought about her parents that if they were alive they’d be happy to see her getting married to a man whom she loves the most. After marriage, Prince Chris became King Chris of Catmint.

29 October 1758, Queen Valen gave birth to a Princess. She was so beautiful and Lovely that she has been named ‘Princess Venus of Catmint’. Princess Venus was much more beautiful than her mother her skin was shining like a diamond and her lips were red like a rose.

Both the Kingdom of Catmint and the Kingdom of Valentina celebrated the birth of a newborn princess with glee. Everyone started dancing on the streets, musicians started playing the flutes, drums and other musical instruments, people were hugging each other and expressing happiness.

King Chris of Catmint invited everyone for the grand celebration of his daughter’s birth. And they lived happily ever after.

Life on Mars!

Ella is always curious to know about the (outer) space. She always questions herself, what if there’s life on other planets like that of ours?

Ella always has a keen interest in the Spacetime Odyssey, Time Lapse, Asteroid-belt, the Great Red Spot, Cassini-Huygens mission, the tiny muddy lumps of snow debris that forms the ring around Saturn and how the sun is formed out of the tiny nebula, etc.

Albeit, she doesn’t know she was a Uranophile and consider this exploration as one of her amusements.

She thinketh there’s some energy out there that exists within us and in our domain as Earth is also a spatial realm.

The energy that has forged the entire universe which has furthermore fabricated our space as well as all and sundry, according to Ella;

As she had read somewhere that,

“Scientists believe that almost all of our body’s mass comes from the Kinetic Energy of the quarks and the Binding Energy of the gluons.”

Altho, her dream is to explore the outer space once in her lifetime and to experience weightlessness in zero gravity.

And then she says to herself, “BE REALISTIC!”

IT’S “LIFE”, NOT A “MOVIE”.

Howbeit, she has never relinquished her so-called hobby hanging in space and has always been inquisitive to au-fait all about it in her unrestricted hours.

Albeit, one extraordinary day, she waggled her phone and saw the news popped up on her Newsfeed,

“Mars: Green glow detected on the Red Planet. ”

She became peculiar and started skimming, sliding, reading all about it like a maniac.

She au-fait, “The green glow is caused by the interaction between the oxygen atom and the sunlight.”

“A similar glow is sometimes seen by astronauts on the space station when they look to the Earth’s limb. “

While reading this has given her a cue of hope that there is a possibility of future in (outer) space or in “MARS” itself.

Don’t know why? After reading that, has made her day so rare during the dark times of her life when the whole world was languishing over the Epidemic Rife.

She was this delighted that she wants to tell the whole wide world about this discovery. When she gets herself together, she ‘Phew!’ And said, “My so awaited dream is right in front of my eyes, FINALLY! THERE’S A POSSIBILITY OF FUTURE LIFE ON MARS.”

Stephan Hawking once said that the Human race is doomed if we do not colonize the Moon and Mars. Albeit, he always utter that, “We’ve 100 years to colonize a new planet— or die. Could we do it? “

If he were alive, he would be thrilled to know about this news. He always motivated the youths to be curious about the (outer) space and try to au-fait all about it.

Stephen Hawking always conveys his thoughts by his quotes and here is one such that I’d like to re-quote it in which he asks the younger space-enthusiasts to be curious about the Universe,

We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the universe. That makes us something very special.”

Cheers to every space enthusiasts out there, who are delighted to know about this news.
