குறுங்கதைகள் - 6


அமேரிக்க முன்னாள் அதிபர் ஜான் கென்னடி சுட்டு கொலை செய்யப்பட்டபோது தலையில் ஸ்கார்ஃப் கட்டிக்கொண்டு ஒரு பெண்மணி எவ்வித சலனமும் இன்றி பார்த்துக்கொண்டிருந்ததாக சொல்வார்கள். அந்த பெண்மணிக்கு "பபூஸ்கா பெண்மணி" என்று கூட பெயர் வைத்திருக்கிறார்கள் அமேரிக்கர்கள்.

நம்மூரில், ஆளவந்தார் கொலை வழக்கு 1950 களில் பரபரப்பாக பேசப்பட்ட வழக்கு. அது போல் இங்கே அமேரிக்காவில் பரபரப்பாக பேசப்பட்ட வழக்கு எலிஸா லாம் கொலை வழக்கு. ஆளவந்தார் வழக்கிலாவது இறுதியில் யார் கொன்றது என்பது தெரிந்தது. எலிஸா லாம் கொலை வழக்கில் கொலையாளி யாரென்றே தெரியவில்லை. ஒவ்வொருத்தரும் ஒவ்வொரு கருத்து சொல்கிறார்கள்.

எலிஸா லாம் ஒரு மனோதத்துவ மருத்துவர்.  நான்கு பரிமாணங்களை தாண்டிய பரிமாணங்களை உணர நேர்ந்ததால், ஏலியன்கள் அவளின் பூத உடலை விடுத்து, ஆன்மாவை தங்களுடன் அழைத்து சென்றிருக்கலாம் என்றும் சொல்கிறார்கள்.

இன்று வரை முடியாத கேஸ் அது. ஒரு கதையில் வகையாக பயன்படுத்திக்கொண்டேன்.


STORY: CONFESSION

“So you can’t come early today, post noon?” Rosy asked Roger, her sweet husband.
“Honey, I am going on business. I will be coming late in the evening. What do you want me to bring home, when I come back in the evening?” Roger asked as he held the wooden main door of the house, slightly open. He was to jump out to work anytime. Rosy didn’t seem to be in her elements, nor did she responded anything. She was calm, unresponsive and was staring the sky through the open window.
Roger has been observing Rosy, a bit different than usual these days. She has not been actively participating in anything as she used to be, before. Strangely, he has been observing her not sleeping at nights quite often, ignoring food, walking for hours in the hall thinking of something or the other, staring at empty sky for hours, yet not sharing anything when asked. Roger, simply chose to wait, for her to open up things to him by herself. After all that was the way, he has been brought up in the West. Therefore, he didn’t ask a question. But, right now, Roger didn’t had time to think on those as he was on an assignment that demanded his presence at Air Force Facility, Nevada, otherwise popularly known as Area 51.
Its the 5th year for him, serving for the nation’s research on extra terrestrial life .The facility now has an inmate, who has been arrested and has been charged of circulating news on abduction and torture by Aliens. Roger was to interrogate him to find the truth.
When he arrived at the facility everything was ready. The guy was sedated and was kept lying on the bed. Hypnotism was being carried out on him. With a glowing lamp, oscillating in front of his eyes, Roger shooted his first question.
“What do you see now?”
“They are here, all around us.”
“How do they look like?”
“They don’t have a shape. They don’t have a body. They choose people and get into them. They live within them”
“Why would they do that?”
“Fear”
“Fear on?”
“Extinction”
“There are no aliens around us” Roger said firmly.
“The Babushka lady, who took photographs when John F Kennedy was assassinated in 1963?!”
Roger didn’t had any answer. He kept silent and waited on him, to speak more.
“The Black Knight Satellite, caught in Space in 1960?! Mysterious Elisa Lam Death?!”
“What could the aliens, be doing right now?” Roger asked, in a rather random effort to divert the context.
“Anything. They are here. They are all around us. They could be watching the empty sky through a open window for hours, could be walking within the four walls for hours, could be staring at nothing for hours..”
Roger grew pale, as the inmate kept narrating his so called hallucinations.
