02. Steps towards Gravity Switcher
It was a bright sunny day; Amit Vyas was having morning tea in his drawing-room. Suddenly, a known voice echoed, “Hey Amit, how are you? ”. Amit turned around and a big smile came on his face. That voice was of Parth Lalwani, who was a scientist and one of the best friends of Amit. They both have been childhood friends. They met after many years and they were so happy to see each other.
Amit ran towards Parth and they hugged, they both went emotional. Several things were there that made them busy and didn’t allowed meeting regularly. “It has been so long that I never seen you, where have you been?”, Amit started the conversation going towards the garden.
“Yes bro, I’ve been at Si-Lio-32, A team has been working on a project called Gravity Switcher, I’m the Project Manager of it”. Said Parth. “Oh Wow!, Gravity Switcher??, Are you Mad?, Will it really switch the gravity?, How long would it take to complete the project?”. Amit said with high hopes and excitement.
“Calm down man calm down, I don’t know exactly how long it would take but if we would make it, it will reveal so many mysteries of science and technology and several other things as well.” Said Parth. “Hoping for the best, man! Keep it up!” Said Amit. Then they sat in the garden as they liked it much. Amit had that garden made outside his home.
“Any updates from our old buddies?,” Asked Parth. “Yes, Chintan had called me days before, he said he is going well”. “No updates from other guys” Amit said in normal tone.
“Well, I think we need to arrange a gathering or say a night-out, we used to do during college days” Said Parth remembering olden days.
“I also wanted the same, I will catch them soon and we will arrange a night-out” Said Amit.
“Boom!” They heard a Sonic Boom which was made by a Spacecraft flying in the sky. In spite of being an old technology, Super Sonic Aircrafts were still in use but they were no more Aircrafts, they became Spacecrafts. As it is said, “Old is Gold” Super Sonic jets were like Gold for those so called REFUGEES of Earth. Of course technological aspects were changed but core concepts were classical only.
“I really love some of these classic technologies”. Said Amit pointing towards the spacecraft. “Yep, I like them too, they’re like priceless treasure for human race. Not only are these technologies but also engineering behind them great too”. Said Parth with proud.
“I still remember those days when we were working on a project that made us happy and inspired us for converting impossible to possible”. Said Amit.
In between, a robotic voice announced, “Mr. Parth, we need you, please come quickly.” from the gadget of Parth he wore on his wrist.
“Man, I have to go now, it seems something critical over there. I will be back later”. Said Parth making some gestures in air.
“Ok bro, We will meet later” said Amit shaking hand with Parth. Then Parth completed his gesture codes in air and suddenly a customized vehicle appeared. He buckled up himself with that vehicle and disappeared in fraction of second. Then he entered in the research center on Si-Lio-32 where Gravity Switcher Project was going on.
