THEME 1: A highly ambitious Rudra, returns from London, after 7 long years. Rudra wishes to become a C. E. O. of a top notched multinational company, ASPIRE. It is his prime goal in life. He returns to his ancestral home with plans of selling the property to earn millions, so that he can invest into his career, where in he meets up his childhood crush, Arohi Kapoor. Arohi is street smart, beautiful and extremely talented. But she is an extreme family person, and hence never left her family to settle elsewhere. She visions her village to be a heaven on earth and she feels that all the educated individuals in the village should come back to the village and work for its development. Rudra was never able to confess his love for Arohi. Arohi was also his senior by 2 years. Arohi did like Rudra secretly but never told him as she felt it would be embarrassing to propose a guy who was younger to her. Meanwhile, during his trip around his village, he lands up infront of a huge palatial mansion. Upon enquiring, he realises that this was a property of his school crush, Swadheenta Arya. He had loved both Arohi and Swadheenta equally, until he left for London after his higher secondary. Swadheenta was a girl of extreme confidence. She was independent, elegant, graceful and the sole owner of DESIRE. Both ASPIRE and DESIRE worked hand in hand owned by the Arya siblings. Swadheenta never liked Arohis’ concern for Rudra. And she used to be extremely jealous when Rudra spoke to Arohi, the reason being Arohi being more loved by everyone. Rudra was UNWARE of both of them liking him.
– So GUYS THIS WAS A HUGE THEME, I KNOW. BEFORE WRITING UP YOUR STORY MAKE SURE YOU HAVE UNDERSTOOD THE THEME WELL.
– HINT: RUDRA IS AMBITIOUS. BOTH GIRLS LOVE RUDRA. SHOULD RUDRA CHOOSE AROHI? OR SWADHEENTA? MAKE SURE THAT OUR POINTS OF RUDRA CHOOSING EITHER OF THEM ARE VALID AND CLEAR. OR WILL RUDRA FIND SOMEONE ELSE? Take your story as you wish, BUT you MUST follow the THEME, You chose. OR
THEME 2: A boy, Rudra wakes up from coma, after 6 long months. He has no memory of what had happened to him, except for the fact that he has been wronged by a girl. The word ‘girl’ reminded him of revenge. His friend and colleague, Aarav, brings him to his home. Aarav, who was happily married to Swadheenta, 3 months ago, brings her to introduce her to Rudra. Rudra meets Swadheenta calmly, unable to recognise her, while a shocked Swadheenta breaths of joy as she realises he could not identify her.
Rudra leaves the house unable to tolerate a ‘girl’. Rudra tries hard to find out who the girl was. He only remembers her face when she was much younger and only in his dreams.once he is awake, he cannot remember. He begins painting everything possible f what he faintly remembered or thought he remembered. Arohi was a bubbly girl, who loved Rudra deeply. The moment she knew he was out if coma, she decides to leave her favourite village, to meet him up. But as she enters his home, she notices the paintings he had made after. She leaves heartbroken about the fact that he was still into Swadheenta, and that he chose Swadheenta, upon her. Rudra notices her leaving, and stops her, questioning, who she was. Arohi just cries and replies, she was nothing but a faint impulse, covered in flesh and blood. Rudra was left in wonder.
– THIS WAS DEFINITELY A HUGE THEME. PLEASE READ THE THEME WELLBEFORE WRITING YOUR STORY, IF YOU ARE CHOOSING THIS THEME. ALSO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE UNDERSTOOD THE THEME WELL.
– HINT: here REVENGE is most important. Now who was he a victim to, is up to the writer yourself. Will Rudra realise the girl who had put through all these? Or will he fall into a out of conspiracies?? Will he find true love?? Take the story as you wish, BUT YOU MUST FOLLOW THE THEME YOU HAVE CHOSEN.
PROPS: WRITERS MUST MAKE SURE THEY USE THE GIVEN PROPS INTO THEIR STORY.
PROP 1: A roadside bench, beside a single streetlight, just infront of a tree.
PROP 2: hot coffee, music and rain.
PROP 3: Sacrifice
QUESTION: HOW TO USE A PROP???
ANSWER: EG of a usage of a prop:
A girl sat upon a bench watching the million stars filling up the sky. The single streetlight shone up the side angles of her face, against the huge tree that stood strongly, just behind the bench. All she reminisced was of her golden times with him.
Flashback: it was the rainy rainy time of the year. Everyone loved staying indoors except her, she was busy dancing in the rain, when she suddenly felt no rain. She opened her eyes, to notice something yellow above her. Soon she realises someone was holding an umbrella above her.
” dad ” she chided, noticing her father, and sneezing. Her father looked on. ” this is why ” he smiled and took her room, brewing her a cup of hot coffee. She sipped onto it as the loud music poured into, not just her ears but her soul.
…………………few hours later, she gets a call from a friend who tells her that her photo is going viral. Shocked and surprised, she logs into her account and realises that someone just captioned her as “the girl with the yellow umbrella” capturing her joyful self. She was in love with the individual who had captured it………….
