Destination Nowhere

By Ravi Mishra

The most powerful Multi National Corporation in the world, Nowhere Corp. is based in the illustrious city Milky Way, the financial capital of the tropical Anyland, one of the mighty nations of the world in the year 2019. Having prospered under the aegis of its CEO, a once celebrated Army General – affectionately addressed by his people as Mr God, the Corporation faces a mortal threat at the hands of Anarchists, who are led by the enigmatic Masked Man. The Masked Man and his followers have steadily grown into a sweeping movement called the Revolution. The Revolution will annihilate Nowhere Corp today, the 15th of January of the year 2019, unless the Corporation’s most talented engineer, Brohum Prude, stands between the Revolution and it. As Brohum prepares to battle the Masked Man in the horror of the forest of Shamshan, the charnel grounds beyond the mythical and the immortal Sura, the great Milky Way river, he revisits his own life to seek answers to his own identity before he stands face to face with his archenemy.
