It was after all, the first of it’s kind.
There had been meteors and UFOs aplenty but never before had there been an actual alien species involved in the mess. Mahesh had initially thought it to be a joke, a prank pulled by his department on him. He was, after all, rather infamous for his alien fantasy obsession.

Like setting up his system, decoding the alien ship’s structure and trying to see if there was any chance they could communicate with the aliens. Even thinking about it made him feel a little bit crazy. What a life he had, he thought almost giddily. Here he was trying to see if the spacecraft that had landed in a field near Mumbai was actually occupied by aliens and if yes, what were they doing here?
