After The End
A story, which starts where most end. We all have, at some point of time, thought what we would do, if we lose all that we love. If suddenly, the world as we know it comes to an end, and all that we have worked hard to achieve ceases to exist.
Mansi had everything she could have asked for - a loving husband, a lucrative job, a house which was soon to be EMI free, and a carefree lifestyle. It seemed perfect on the surface, but underneath, there were tremors of chaos, wanting to gain her attention, to remind her that she needed to sort out her life. But one day, the world as she knew, collapsed. As the earth was engulfed by a catastrophic earthquake, human civilization's achievements as a race went for a toss, and it was left facing a survival crisis. Mansi was fortunate enough to survive, or was she? Alone and injured, she has to deal with death and destruction around her, along with the fact that, she might have lost her husband and loved ones for ever. But instead of grieving about what she has lost, she sets out to find her husband. With great courage, hope and presence of mind, Mansi faces the challenges coming her way, taking one day at a time. In her quest she gradually forms a tribe of other survivors.
UFO - A little puppy, who saves her and brings the much needed warmth in her life.
Anil - A man with a dark secret, which has sentenced him to a lifetime of repentance.
Kiran - The only person who is probably glad at the end of the world, as she knew it.
Ali - An old man who has nothing to live for, and questions whether or not is he worthy of a second chance.
Sanjay - A soldier who thought he had seen it all, until now.
Raghav - His affable smile veils an issue, which would test the very integrity of the tribe.
Deepali - Tragedy was just the beginning of the horror which awaited to tear her juvenile soul.
Manav - Mansi's only hope and reason for survival.
The journey which began just as an escape from death, soon takes them away from the life they had known. As they move away from cities and villages, into the jungle, they slowly get stripped off their civilised lifestyle. But with ancient ways come ancient instincts; fear, rage, greed, lust, and love all emotions which bring out the animal within. As priorities change and loyalties shift, they realize that their journey is more than just about survival.
