Our English assignment was to make a funny poem. So this is my hand at poetry.
The ancestor of all earth cows None other than the cosmic cow; While the earth cow goes moooo The cosmic cow goes maaaa; While the earth cow gives milk The cosmic gives cottage cheese; While humans graze cattle The martians graze the cosmic cattle; The earth cow eats grass While the cosmic cows eats glass.
Now that I think about it, I have had some really great
times and some very beautiful, fresh memories of enjoying with my family.
Behind every happy man/woman (or a boy/girl), there is a family. All those
magical moments with my family have shaped me.
I distinctly remember when I was in fourth
standard. I was nine years old at that time. Then I had a been in ‘B’ section for four years. This year like the
years before, I signed up for the Olympiads for three subjects- IMO (International
Math Olympiad), NSO (National Science Olympiad) and NCO (National Cyber Olympiad).
In the last few years, I was steadily improving at Olympiads. To us students at
the time, the main incentive was missing the PT class to write the Olympiad.
Also a high school rank and prizes were not bad either. So my mother who had been
helping me study for the last few years again started, this time looking to go
a step further with me. I had already won some prizes entirely because of mom’s
effort to teach me. In tho…
My first unit tests of the year recently got over. It was a huge relief. The unit tests went well with me scoring well in all subjects. But it was really hectic too. Anyway for a change, I enrolled in a program to mentor and teach 1st standard kids who have difficulty coping up. This has been refreshing as teaching these kids somehow helps me de-stress and also leaves me feeling good.
The child who I teach, let's call him M, was initially shy with me and barely talking at all. It took a few days for him to become familiar with me and he opened up more. Now he chats so much that I have trouble keeping him quiet. Well, I certainly have started becoming more patient as these children are so young and sweet that it is very hard staying mad at them for very long.
Also I have had to turn to some examples such as friendship bands or pens to make him understand simple addition. Also on days when some of friends' allotted teachers are absent, then he asks me to teach them for a day. …
Hope is the strongest thing a man could ever possibly
possess. Hope will keep you going when all else fails. I would like to quote
Dr. Seuss’ statement “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” Optimism
is so uplifting. You can fell all your worries and sorrows melt away in an instant.
It can make you feel absolutely wonderful.
I was alone in a Hyderabad local train with my young brother
with strangers all around. I was focusing on the horrifying fact that my
grandmother was still on the platform of Fatehnagar station and my brother and
I were in a train with unknown people. How did I reach here?
For that I would go back to when we left with my grandmother
to Hyderabad to spend some time with her and with my parents staying in
Bangalore. Yes, I’ll agree it was fun and everything but then nothing is quite
like your own home. After one week I was missing Bangalore so we were to board
a train back to Bangalore from Kacheguda railway station.
My brother and I were both v…
