Alice in Wonderland is an all too familiar story—a story of fantastic magic realism. Let me add on to her stories. There is a cellar in Alice’ house with a secret passage in it which enables Alice on mystic flight.
One day Alice prized upon this passage and she fell into s strange land of fairies and dwarfs.
They asked her: ‘who are you’.
Alice replied: ‘I am Alice a School Girl’.
Then they said: ‘an important occasion s taking place in our country. We are electing a queen.’
Surprised Alice asked: ‘how’?
They replied: ‘we cast votes and the candidate who gets the least votes is elected’.
The fairy called: ‘You Know Other Things was elected as she got the lowest votes.’
Alice said: ‘This is a strange custom. In, my land it is the majority that gets voted.’
A dwarf replied: ‘It is the minority that is the least corrupt’.
Alice replied: ‘Fair enough, please let me go’.
The fairy cast her wand and lo Alice was transported from the cellar and back into her home.
The next day, Alice went down the cellar and she was transported into a land called Anarchy. King Anarchy Abacus was in rule there.
Alice asked them ‘who are you’?
Anarchy Abacus replied: ‘We are anarchists’.
Alice asked him: ‘What is anarchy’?
Anarchy Abacus replied: ‘Anarchy is as simple as tying our shoelaces. Anarchy is a lot of nonsense in language. Anarchists do not know the purpose and meaning of life. Any letter in our anarchy-language begins with I and ends in I.
Alice: ‘this is all very strange to me; I am going over to my house’.
Next day Alice went down the cellar. She was taken to strange land called: ‘philosophers of being’. King know-it-all greeted Alice warmly.
Alice asked King Know-it-all: ‘Sir what is your philosophy’?
King Know it all replied: ‘Ours is a philosophy of being.’
Alice asked him: ‘What is being?’
King- Know- it- all: ‘See Alice, we are confused about the meaning of being. Sometimes being is being. Sometimes being is non-being to being. Sometimes being is consciousness. Sometimes it is the chemicals triggered in the brain. Sometimes it is the soul.’
Alice: ‘This is even more complicated than the Algebra I learnt in school. Thanks for your revelations. I want to say bye bye now’.
The following day Alice slipped down through the cellar and came to a land of non-violence. She had a meeting with revolutionaries of the land.
Alice asked them: ‘What is the philosophy of non violence?’
A revolutionary named Do-it-right told: ‘we are a country yet to be freed from the yoke of colonial rule. We fight our oppressors with the weapons of truth and non violence. We are so passionate about non-violence that we don’t even hurt a fly.
Alice asked King Do-it-right: ‘When will your land get freedom’?
Do-it-right replied: ‘we are not sure: we are fighting for it.’
Then Alice departed from their land and climbed in cellar to reach her house.
Next day, Alice went down the cellar into another strange country called Mutiny.
The King there Mutiny-Massacre glanced at her with the look of hatred.
Alice asked Mutiny-Massacre: ‘explain to me what Mutiny is.’
King Mutiny-massacre replied: ‘Mutiny is rising against neighboring states and conquering them. Now our strategy is biological warfare.’
Alice asked Mutiny-Massacre: ‘what is biological warfare?’
King Mutiny Massacre replied: ‘We have created a virus called Corona which has spread the entire world and which is causing a great deal of sickness and death. Our plan is to destabilize nations.’
King Mutiny Massacre gave a cold, sarcastic, vicious, laugh.
Alice started Crying and said: ‘please get me out of here.
A fairy named –Do-good-to-all came to her rescue and transported her to the cellar and back to her home.
