stdout is fd 1, not 0.  It's curious this produced output at all.

Also, you're printing some garbage from the stack in the first write().
It should be:

    write(1,t,strlen(t));

Other than that, your program works for me (doesn't block).

This is as expected, except for it blocking, right?  Will it still block
for you if you correct the errors above?

BTW, note that:

#pragma omp parallel for
    for(i=0;i<2;i++)

isn't guaranteed to actually spawn two threads for the two iterations.
It probably will (as long as OMP_NUM_THREADS is at least 2, or is not
set and the system has at least two logical CPUs), but it is also
allowed to just execute the two iterations sequentially.  Observe:

$ ./b
2 1
checkpoint 1
2 0
checkpoint 1
checkpoint 2
checkpoint 2
checkpoint 3
checkpoint 3
checkpoint 4
checkpoint 4
$ OMP_NUM_THREADS=1 ./b
1 0
checkpoint 1
checkpoint 2
checkpoint 3
checkpoint 4
1 0
checkpoint 1
checkpoint 2
checkpoint 3
checkpoint 4
