|Salvation army members were confused for an alien army force in a rural town.|
Alien-Invading Army Murali was Juggernaut's fellow student at the college. He was tall and fair-skinned, with a lazy right eye that was stuck permanently looking left. When he was looking right, it confuses others, not knowing which direction he was looking. His thick eyebrows were uninterrupted from one end of the temple to the other like a straight line, giving an unusual look to his face. Murali kept to himself in the class and only spoke when spoken to. In a rural town on the coast, the college specialized in agricultural sciences attracted students mostly from the farming communities; Juggernaut and Murali were among the minority of students at the college from urban areas. On occasions, Juggernaut spoke with Murali, but most conversations with Murali did not go far; he either smiled, showing his crooked teeth, or shook his head as an answer. Behind his odd looks, Murali was thoughtful and imaginative with a sense of humor. Juggernaut overcame his initial feelings about Murali's oddities and befriended him when he realized he came from his hometown, Pineappleville. The college, built fifty years ago on a land donated by a local farmer , was the only institution in the state that specialized in agricultural sciences. The sandy soil in the area was very shallow and only supported tobacco and rice nurseries. The sleepy rural town was turned into a bustling college town when the college was expanded to offer diversified courses in agricultural sciences over the years. The railway track separated the town into two sections: the east side with all the shops and restaurants, the college campus, a few schools, two cinemas, one small public hospital, and a bus stand was the main town area; and the area across the railway tracks was impoverished, with a small church and a mosque to serve the minority population of Christians and Muslims. People either walked over the railway tracks or some went over the steel overbridge built over the tracks at the train station. At the campus, except for the soccer and cricket fields, there were no other avenues for social activities for the students. In the evening, the students, to kill time , swarmed the only two main streets in town, walking up and down and visiting the railway station to watch the trains go by. On occasions, Murali dropped by Juggernaut's room for a chat since he hardly communicated with his own two roommates at the dorm. “I saw alien army members in uniform the other day,” said Murali. “What alien army?” Juggernaut thought it was one of those weird talks of Murali. “ The other evening, I went over the railway tracks for a walk and noticed few foreigners in black army uniform in a compound next to the church. ” Murali looked serious. “How did the foreigners look like?” “I couldn't see clearly from the road, but they were in black military uniform with army hats.” “How many of them?” Juggernaut was curious. “Three to five members.” “What do you think they were here for?” Juggernaut inquired. “Perhaps planning to invade the town.” “How can an army of three to five soldiers invade a town, and why invade this small rural town?” “Maybe they came first to spy on us before a full invasion.” Murali looked confused. That evening, Juggernaut joined Murali to investigate the alien-invasion army across the railway tracks.
