UNIROBO PART 2

I opened my eyes; I saw the same room I was in, not an inch from where I was sitting down with tablet. This is a real deal, no dream. I just woke and yet I am here. In the door there was a “peep” again. Nurse came with a capsule and a smile in her face. It was the same nurse or may be all the models are same, I had no idea.

Hello Ami, good afternoon!

(I don’t want her here; I know she is not a human. I do not feel obliged to talk with machines.)

Here, is your water capsule fortified with essential nutrients to keep you healthy and young.

I noticed she was smiling all the way. No more expression. The world looks so developed why they cannot develop more advanced model with more substantial expression. At least the one who do not have that freaky smile all the time.

With another “peep” she walked away, leaving the capsule in a tray she brought in.

I reached out for it; it was a soft rubbery capsule with really a liquid inside it. did not looked like a water my mother used to give me, the natural one with natural fortifications of minerals! I just thought to drink the juice I got from the button rather than the one this nurse brought. I threw that water capsule in the bathroom. I just did not felt its right to drink that one. Nothing is right here but still I can control the one I have control over.

I went inside the bathroom again. At least it was not empty like the living room. There were only few buttons there. I investigated the bathroom looking here and there, hoping may be there is some clue which I did not found in the room. There was nothing here too. Clean, empty and no traces of my existence or anyone’s existence.

I want to see that mirror again; I want to see how I look again. At least if I am dying here, I would rather know how I look like and why I felt so weak and old. But hey I am not feeling so weak right now than I was feeling in the morning. Perhaps it’s because I ate well. I went near the window and clicked that button again, mirror appeared. I checked my eyes the very first, maybe I have data encoded there too, who knows?

Thank goodness I am clean. (sigh)

My eyes looked normal. I checked each and every part of my body just be sure that they are not converting me into some shit model as that nurse mentioned before. I did not want to push that button again, I loved this mirror. It gave me the initial proof that I am quite normal physically.

Staring at the mirror, I saw one car stopped by my window for a second. Its reflection was seen in mirror. Then I ran into the window in hope that someone in that car must have noticed that I am trapped here. So I would be rescued and I can know what the hell is going on here.  Or maybe I am just hallucinating; I cannot keep the solid thought. I may have left here to die alone in misery. I may have been abandon by my own people. I even cannot remember my name.

What was my name?

And what is my name here?

Did that robot called me by name?

I cannot remember. Anyways what’s kept on name?

Name does not justify anything. If I know my name also, I will not know who I am. And names can be changed also. There are people with same name all around. What is there in name, that defines me? Nothing…

I walked the corner of that big window, which was in fact, one whole wall. I sat near the edge. The material was something familiar in the frames of window. I tried to remember what this material. There were dashes, actually several dashes in the bottom frames. These dashes were not symmetrical, some were small, and some were big, some less than an inch. It did not look like an art but looked like carvings of someone.I just guessed it. it can be anything but i like to believe that its a carving someone trying to remember something, that someone can be even me.

I started to count those carvings, hell lot of dashes to count; I started from the very edge where I was laying down.

1 2 3 4 5 6………………… ……………………………… ……………………… ……………………

……………………, ……………………… …………………… …………………… ……………………

……………………………… ……………………… ……..……………… ………………………

…………………………… ……………………… …………………………… ……………. 15,004.

wow, fifteen thousand and four! may be this is my proof, that i exist.

( with a smile)

I added another dash there, making it 15,005 with my nails. After all, its the gift of nature as a tool, so why not to use it in need!

I imagined when I was a school kid, our science teacher used to explain us how we human beings evolved from the caves, wore animal skin and all that sort of things. For me, it quite resembled the cave as well. This room is a cave and my art using my nail, as a cave art. I felt relieved for some time.

I couldn’t figure out what is the time now. There were no clocks around. outside it was no difference, whether it was a night or day. All day long it had same intensity of light. And I am too tired to press those buttons to know which one is for the clock. I decided to lie in bed. While lying there, I glanced above and there I saw a crescent moon with stars in a dark heaven. It was a night time!

I closed my eyes, hoping; tomorrow may be a different day!
