My Life - Mrs Elephant

Image
Hello there! It's me, your favourite one - Mrs Elephant. So let me tell you more about myself and my family. I am beautiful, prettier than most people. I have 14, no 17, actually 25 children. Adorable children with big ears and legs and those who fight a lot. Don't even get me started about the things they do. When I go to the store, they create a complete mess. I select some decent clothes for them, but they are so fussy that they want to buy a dress that doesn't even fit them! Do you understand how difficult it is for me? Now enough about my naughty children; let's talk about me. Besides being the best mother and prettiest, I am a writer and a doctor. I work 24 hours daily and am swamped, so you must not ask me too many questions because I simply don't have the time to answer them. I am excellent at playing games, especially Sudoku and Crossword. I also dream of having an extensive library, which I suppose will come true someday. If you are looking for a job, then

Haiku - Rishona Chopra

Image
A haiku is a Japanese poem with 3 lines of 5 syllables, then 7 syllables and then 5. Some famous haikus are as such -  Birds singing their song, Wind caressing passers by, Clouds wander the sky! - Alma Tree branch sways slowly, As a child, sing a sweet song, Gracefully it goes. - Donna Brock Here is a haiku made by me: Stop worrying, friends, Good things are coming our way, Have fun and relax!

Out Of The Box - Reveda Bhatt

Thinking out of the box, People believe the path is hard, Paved with rocks. Just come to our world once! And, here, the world means a new way of thinking, And not another Earth; it’s not a pun! Reveda Bhatt Grade 9 The Aryan School

Totto-chan's Life - Anvesha Rana

Image
Totto-chan has taught me many things, from selflessness to compassion, curiosity to care, pity to love. She has taught us innumerable life lessons just through her mischievous nature and jovial personality.  Totto-chan had participated in a sports event and that single event had the most profound effect on her. Similarly, even the sports day at my school is not only a day full of fun but also a day submerged in learning.  The sports day taught me acceptance, that even though I did not win anything, I needed to accept that fact. It also encourages appreciation for others, I learn to acknowledge the rewards of my mates even when I don't have any. It teaches me to care for those who might have hurt themselves while playing, but the most important lesson on the sports day is cooperation, understanding and following your team and leading them in the right direction. The sports day is a day oozing with fun, learning, sports and values.  Totto-chan had a fun pet, Rocky, who was a German s

We Were Only Playing - Rishona Chopra

Playing is probably the best thing about childhood. I love playing, going out in the sun and running and having lots of fun; that is childhood. Here's a thing about playing - you don't need toys to play with. All you need is a friend, and that friend can be you.    Making games to play with yourself is the art of playing. When I am bored, I make some slime and squish it with some chemicals and do experiments or while studying, I act as if I am a teacher and teach all concepts to imaginary children and sometimes to my parents too!  Totto-chan had a pet. A pet comes with a lot of responsibility, but you always have a partner to share your feelings with. I sometimes wish I had a quiet puppy, but I am not ready to take the responsibility, and I think that if we keep a pet, we shouldn't keep it in a cage and bring it with its sibling or mother, so we don't separate the pet from their family. The innocence of a child is all about their selfless compassion - In Japan, they cal

Coffee with the Coach - Anvesha Rana

Image
                                            Maybe it was a grandparent, a colleague or a teacher, someone older, patient and wiser, who ignited your lost mind; crackled the fire of learning in you when you were young and impassioned. It perhaps helped you view the world as a more profound place and gave you sound advice to guide your way through it. It was my teacher, maybe for you, it would be someone else but... Wouldn't you like to see that one person again, to ask the more important questions that still haunt you and receive wisdom for life the way it is now? Coffee with the Coach is a conversation between a teacher and his student about almost everything. Most importantly, about the 22 immutable values cornerstone of My Good School. Coffee with the Coach is a magical chronicle of their time spent together. Anvesha Rana, Grade 10-B, Gyanshree School

Can You See Osaka? - Rishona Chopra

Image
The picture shows how Totto-chan's uncle used to pick her up and ask her if she could see Osaka. It was her dream place. She was much more excited when she got to know Takahashi - a young boy in her school who came from Osaka. Now tell me something. Can You See Osaka? Rishona Chopra Grade VI Gyanshree School

The World of Television - Simar Kaur

Image
Hey, 'how you doin'?'. This infamous dialogue, iconic, I might add, is a signature of Joey from the hit sitcom 'Friends'. I honestly couldn't count how many times it had made me laugh, even when I was at my lowest. The perfect life of cinema where everything seems to lead to a happy ending is the perfect run-away for me when my life seems shattered. Whenever my life seems too much to handle, I run away to my imaginary friends, with whom I can share everything. The amazingly sarcastic Chandler, the hopeless romantic Ted dedicated to finding 'The One', the motherly nature of Lily, the overprotective Finn, the 'drowning with creativity' Barney, the 'smart guy' Sheldon, they all are the friends I never had. I get scolded every single day for watching television way too much. But the truth is that I love to live another life, and coming back to my regular boring, uninteresting life just seems hectic. Even if they are just a figment of so

Too Caught Up - Reveda Bhatt

Image
You call it life? It’s just a game. Looking for a shelter, When under rain. Thinking about what to do, Coming out in pain. Realizing too late, Figuring out what’s main. Figured out what to do? But, now, you’re stuck in chains. Chains rising high, All the struggle went in vain. What for? Just to have substantial gain! Reaching your destination, Looking at a lane. See where it leads to, A ring surrounded by canes. Entered it only to see a spark Leading to flames Looking around to escape, But now you’re too deep, It’ll never be the same! Reveda Bhatt  Class 9 The Aryan School

Thank you - Rishona Chopra

Thank you, god, For not making me a fraud, For helping me through my little pains, You just kept pleasing me again and again. I have a home, My family has money to travel to Rome! I can see and hear, When I think of this, in front of me, you appear. I can study, and I can feel, I can have a tasty meal. I am healthy, Thank god I am not nasty. I can see a new day, I can play! I go to a beautiful school, Which is really so cool. I can do so much, yet I ask for more, I already have a lot, and I don't need anymore! Rishona Chopra Grade VI Gyanshree School
