The story unfolds with the a student, engrossed in doing his Maths homework at his desk when a sudden and loud crash draws his attention. Investigating further, he discovers an alien spaceship in his garden. The hatch of the spaceship opens, revealing Ynos Bandmanager V2.6, an alien in need of help.

Ynos explains that it needs the student’s assistance to participate in the Intergalactic Idol contest on the planet Arkstaro Two. The student agrees, and they embark on a journey through a wormhole, a space-time warp facilitating quick travel. Upon reaching Arkstaro Two, the student realizes he has to be a singer in the contest, representing Earth.

The Intergalactic Idol contest is a grand event in a massive amphitheatre, attracting beings from hundreds of planets. The first contestant, a sound-assassin from Homisonic, performs with lethal sound waves, resulting in the demise of two competitors. The student, singing ‘Heartbreak Hotel,’ doesn’t excel but benefits from the diverse audience with varying tastes.

Despite coming in second, the student faces new challenges. Ynos points out a lack of a safe home delivery contract, and Oogba Lopp‘s daughter claims they are married due to a perceived connection during the performance. To escape this predicament, the student uses a thimble, salt, and clever tactics while hiding in a crate of poisonous lobsters.

On the journey back home, the spaceship faces another ambush by Zigibvox, causing minor damage and a leak in the Ziggonium tank. The student returns home just in time for school but encounters a dilemma. To prevent being sucked into space, the student stuffs a hole in the spaceship with the nearest object – his Maths notebook.

The story concludes with the student explaining to Mrs Gupta, presumably a teacher, why he doesn’t has his Maths homework – a humorous twist resulting from using the notebook to patch a hole in the spaceship.

Ans. The choice to omit details serves both literary and narrative purposes, allowing the narrator to control the flow of the story and engage the reader’s imagination and sustain the story’s tone.
