“Hi, Black Battery, I’ve never seen Mr. Parmeen touching you. So, you must prepare to be eliminated,” said Television.

“You must get ready to be with useless plastics, food scraps, and other smelly things in garbage disposal.” The Cell Phone mocked Black Battery.


The battery Black did not say anything. He was just silent.


“I am senior in this room and as all of you have seen, every day, our master, Mr. Parmeen always activates me and enjoy entertainment through me,” said Television.

“Everyday Mr. Parmeen always holds me, activate me to update his status at Facebook and Twitter, send SMS, call his friends, listen to music, and play the game. I am not only useful for communication but also entertaining,” said Smartphone.


“Mr. Parmeen also has good relationship with me. With me, he can play games, listen to music, search for information via the internet, or do his work. I help Mr. Parmeen doing his work but also entertain him, “said Computer.

“What can I do?” Black Battery asked.

“We are going to work together. I need the energy from you and your friends to entertain Mr. Parmeen, our master, during electricity blackout in this city,” said Old Radio Player.
