Asimo stood at the cross roads and was frustrated to see the vehicles on the zebra crossing. He couldn’t cross the road, out of safety concerns.
“Its so blazing hot here! Add to it layering myself, from top to bottom. This round hat comes in the way of my vision. These loose clothes make me stumble and then I cut a sorry figure of myself. I am ok, as I am!"
"Once back home, will convey my displeasure to Divya. But for now, on to my task at hand. Dropped clothes at laundry. Bought fresh loaf of bread."
"Let me reach out to mobile. Divya has instructed to check mobile before returning home. Oh, oh… two missed calls. She is so impatient. I will be back home straight, why she has to have doubt?”, noted Asimo.
Back at home, Divya was nervous as Asimo was not back yet. She was not sure about programming of Asimo. Asimo was just a robot, with AI, that she was programming to perform human tasks.

Great! There seems to be story behind the disguise.ReplyDelete
Ya, you are right Reena, I am already thinking of the plot to take the story further. Thanks for visiting.Delete
Nice reveal at the end. no wonder the poor robot doesn't know what to make of the ad human world!ReplyDelete
I am so sure, inspite of being wordly wise, the Robots never will be able to decipher the weird folks... that is us!Delete
Most cool! Developing AI for robots would go something like this I think. Eventually the robot would go off alone and the creator would have to wonder and worry just like a parent. Cool story!ReplyDelete
Thanks for praises! Glad you liked it.Delete
I get that "Asimo" references "Isaac Asimov" who originally crafted the famous "Three Laws of Robotics" and was a prolific science fiction and mystery writer, but what about "Divya?ReplyDelete
Divya is my creation! She lives only in this tale! Diya actually means visionary, sublime and divine!Delete
