English Day Celebrations

Today was celebrated as English Day in our school. The programs started with Principal sir and Vice Principal ma'am lighted a lamp. Then a song and then some still sketches turned into a video by some students and the video was about Charles Dickens. Then, a girl from our class recited a poem she had composed and I went backstage with the rest of the participants and after a play our turn came and we recited 'The Highway Man' by Alfred Noyes. Then the boring parts came in which I was trying to sleep and they were talking about vowels and compound words and then some 10th standard students who had painted their faces Black and white and showed a student's life in which he has a lot of stress and while studying overnight, the student fainted and then after coming from hospital started doing pujas to pass and rejected to study for IIT ,MBA and MBBS and becomes mad and commits suicide and then after some more dances and prize distribution and vote of thanks, we go home

A Good Read

I recently read Catching Fire and finished the Hunger Games series. For those wondering how I finished the series as Catching Fire is the second book, the answer is that because of a mistake I read Mockingjay,
the last book instead of the second one and I liked it a lot.

The book starts with Katniss getting food for Gale and his family from the forest. Then there are many photo shoots, announcement that Peeta is going to marry her as this is the orders of President Snow and the Quarter Quell is near as each 25 years there is a Quarter Quell and in the first Quarter Quell, the neighbours had to choose the tributes. In the second Quarter Quell, they had to send twice the number of tributes and this was the Hunger Games in which Haymitch Abernathy of district 12 won and Maysilee Donner who is Madge's aunt, a friend of Katniss's mother and was the owner of the mockingjay pin died in the top 5.

Gale was whipped and was critically injured as a new head peacekeeper was there in plac…

My first Indiblogger meet

Yesterday, I and my mother went to the indiblogger meet in Bangalore. I met Vikas Khanna and Rajiv Makhni. We registered ourselves and then went to a table right in the first row and I sat with my mother's friends and took photos then Vikas Khanna and Rajiv Makhni started anchoring and then 30 seconds of fame started and after the first batch they asked who is the youngest and I was so I went to the stage and asked him what is the question and I won the prize which was a universal mobile phone charger and then new apps were shown and two teams: the foodie team and the techie team faced off against each other and had to do Gangnam style and I was in the foodie team and normally being shy and never dancing made this a surprising even my mom and another prize and then a quiz began and then your wish is my app and by that time I had eaten my dinner and got T-shirts and then went.

Dussehra Holidays!

Our Dussehra holidays were fun. I went to Ooty and met two friends there and played a lot of cricket and just did whatever I wanted to do and my dog has come back inside the house after recovering from a tick problem. I missed the Dandiya event as we came back that day and were tired and it was raining that time so I didn't go and the next day my friends told me they did it inside the badminton court and had a lot of fun.

Visit to Ooty

We went to the queen of hill stations Ooty someday's back. We were lucky that we started early and didn't get stopped during the Cauvery water agitation and had breakfast at a restaurant near Mandya and then we went through the Bandipur forest and then Mudumalai forest and then came near Ooty and the Ghat roads were really bad with 36 hairpin bends and was very steep and in Ooty we saw many carrot, potato and cabbage plants and step farming also.

We stopped at Sterling resorts and checked in and went for lunch and there I met my friend over there and in the evening we went and played carrom, chess and table tennis and then went for dinner and started walking for a while and then the next day we bought home made chocolates from the oldest chocolatier and did boating, bought bulbs and seeds and went back when it started raining and the next day we saw the botanical garden which was well maintained and longand full of greenery that we went there again and we travelled in the Nil…

Holidays

I am so relieved that the vacation has started and after exams now finally I can rest and don't have to study and I am very happy with the marks and enjoying the vacations by playing outside, video games and just lazing around. Nowadays we play a lot with coco and he likes it to and I have less homework so for sometime i don't need tot ouch school textbooks and notebooks.

Gautam's Birthday!

It was Gautam's birthday yesterday.When we woke up we started singing the birthday song to Gautam and he opened his gifts and he got a truck from me, a plane from mom and a helicopter from dad and then he wore his kurta pyjama to school. He got a nice card from his teacher and when I came to the bus then he was surrounded by children who went away and he gave me one chocolate and gave two of my colony friends chocolates and then it got over and then he chased till our house because I tried to do birthday bums on him and our grandmother surprised him and gave him a truck she had got as his gift. Then in the evening all his friends started coming and they danced then we cut the cake and then they went away with the return gifts and we opened his gifts and I started reading a book he got and then we had dinner and we slept.

A good read

Recently I read Mockingjay. It is in the hunger games series. It is about Katniss Everdeen who has been rescued from the arena and her district's all parts except the victors village is bombed and they flee to district thirteen. District thirteen was believed to have been bombed and destroyed during the first rebellion but people were living underground and they were living in isolation all that time without anyone knowing about and when the survivors of district twelve arrive they are given district thirteen citizenship and soon get to know that a epidemic pox had spread over there and are given meals according to their size and weight and they get no less and no more and have schedule printed on hands which lets them go places they are supposed to be and make them remember. It washes away after the last thing on it which is sleep. Gale gets a comunnicuff for rescuing survivors of the bombs.  Katniss is in hospital and doesn't need to follow her schedule and then a person ca…

My Green Ambassador Project

Yesterday I had my green ambassador project. We had to go a petrol bunk and check the emission certificate. Before going we were given instructions and then we went and I was lucky to be in the first batch and then we started asking and giving green and red tags for having the emission certificate and not having it respectively and giving tip cards and taking down their vehicle's plate number, money the owner spends for fuel per month, distance travelled in that particular vehicle and total fuel tank capacity which were noted down by the leader. Out of the six in our group, two were holding banners, the leader noting down on the paper, two putting red and green tags and one giving tip cards, I had the role of introducing us to the vehicle owner and asking him/her the questions. In the first ten minutes or so their were only two wheelers which came to the place allotted to us and then after it we got many car and bikes to ask and at the end of the hour we had finished three pages …

My Project

Image
I had did a project in school about rainwater harvesting. I went on the stage with my friends holding the chart and then after introducing myself told why we need rainwater harvesting, what are the advantages of it and about the process. Then after that many people told that it was good and when I came back to my line all my friends told me good and principal sir also like it and I was relieved as the it went well and for the first time on stage my knees didn't shake. Then in the afternoon during dance practice my former class teacher also told me it was good.

Independence Day Program

Yesterday, I had a program on Independence day. I reached school and reached the place where the teachers were painting our arms and legs and I was last and then we watched the flag hoisting and then all classes went to witness the program and we just went after them and the first standard did a dance on the music on all the Hero Moto Corp adds and then one random class did a play how British treated us and one funny thing was that while telling about zero was invented by the great Indian mathematician Aryabhatta he told Aryabhatha and then a skit in Kannada in which the main character always dies and a big boy carries him away and then after some poems my dance came and by mistake we started a bit early on one step but otherwise it was good and then we went downstairs and I became first at the sink and began washing the paint and the arm paint went away and the paint on my leg I had to wash it in my house and then I took my clothes and while changing in the bathroom locking myself in…

A Good Read

I read The Hunger Games yesterday. It was good with a slight bit of emotion in it. It is about a girl living in District 12 in Panem which is current day North America with thirteen parts, they are: The Capitol and twelve districts and there had been a rebel war with the districts on one side and the Capitol on another and the Capitol had won the war destroying District 13 forever. From then they started the Hunger Games in which each district sends 2 tributes a boy and girl. Whoever lasts till the last being the only survivor wins and they have to kill each other.
The girl's name is Katniss and has a best friend called Gale. She volunteers to become a part of the Hunger Games to save her sister. She has two trainers called Ellie and Haymitch. She in the opening ceremony wears a dress which is on fire but not hurting her and in the training she gets a eleven points and then when the games start she looks for a bow and arrow but is distracted and then has to flee with a bag while …

Rakhi!

Image
Today is the festival Rakhi or Raksha Bandhan. I have 5 cousin sisters so I normally wear 5 rakhis but this time only one of my sisters sent it. We tied it in the morning, eat something sweet and ran to school. In the class everyone was comparing their rakhis with each other. Then when class started we almost stopped talking about it but we just had to ask each other how sisters they have or tease them about their rakhis.

My Favourite Sport

Image
My favourite sport is football. It is a game played by two teams each consisting of eleven players. The rules are simple like: That no one except the goalkeeper can touch the ball with their  hands. If a player other than the goalkeeper touches the ball with their hands inside the penalty arc it is an penalty and the opponent team get a chance to shoot and every player except the goalkeeper has to stand behind the ball. If a player touches the ball with his/her hands outside the penalty arc is a free kick. Whoever shoots the most goals win the match.

The positions are: goalkeeper, defender, midfielder and striker. The goalkeeper has to block goals, a defender has to tackle the opponent, the midfielder has to take the pass from the defender and can either pass to the striker or shoot it himself and the striker has to take passes from defenders or midfielders and then shoot.

I am going to tell you about the book, Harry Potter and the Chamber Of Secrets. The story starts with Harry not recieving any letters from his friends and not even on his birthday and it is puzzling as they promised to send some. Then Harry finds a elf in his cupboard and he is in trouble as a guest had come and Harry is not supposed to be down or make any noise and the elf while going elevates the cake and drops it on the guest so the dursleys lock Harry in his bedroom.

Then Harry's friend,Ronald Weasley or Ron for short came with two of his brother Fred and George Weasly, Two twins who were the most naughty in the whole Weasley family and they all came from their flying Ford Anglia to rescue Harry and toke him to their home, The Burrow. Harrry is amazed as he was seeing a magical house for the first time.
He stays here for a few days and then shops for the new year at Hogwarts, a school teaching magic.He meets Hermione over there and then start the term. It was a norm…

My brother

Image
My brother is going to turn six this year. He is very cute and naughty and inside the house he do anything to irritate us but outside he is quiet and disciplined. He is very protective when someone troubles me he is always ready to fly at them. He also asks many questions and then when we tell him the answer he runs away to play with his toys. He can play with his toys for a lot of time before getting bored(something I should learn from him). He is also very bright and intelligent but sometimes he irritates me so much and hits me I get angry but still we are brothers and love each other a lot.

My Dog

Image
I have a Labrador Retriever named Coco. He is currently almost one and a half years and born in the same month as I(In the month of May). He is very cute and he wakes me up everyday by licking on my face but sometimes he is overenthusiastic and doesn't let me sleep. On his birthday we celebrated by making him a cake from pedigree.

 Some pics



He eats like a lion and was born with blue eyes but now has green eyes just like two emeralds. I remove ticks from his skin and kill them whenever I can see one and we take for walks sometimes and we pamper him but at the same time we are strict with him and give him punishments.

A good movie

Image
I recently watched Hachiko a dog's story. In case you haven't heard about it I will brief you about what happens. It starts with Hachiko finding professor Wilson and he takes him home. Then he convinces his wife to keep him. Then Hachiko starts following professor Wilson till the train station and comes there to greet him when he hears the train coming and is always there and one day a skunk stopped him and professor and Hachi get skunked. 

One problem that he is an Akita and Akitas don't usually fetch but one day he fetches the ball and tries to stop him from going and that day only he dies and Hachiko is puzzled why didn't he come. So everyday he day go there and even when the family moved then he ran and came here and truly by its end you will have tears in your eyes as you watch Hachi waiting and finally dies due to old age. 

The real Hachiko was in Japan he is till date the most loyal dog in the whole world and he used to wait at Shibuya station in Tokyo and many p…

The football match

Image
Today I had a very engrossing football match. Our team got the early lead when my friend shot a goal but then the opponent scored five goals in quick succession. Then we started recovering and I scored two goals and then my team gave me to the other team because they were one player short. And in the end we won 10-7

The Table Tennis match

Image
Today I took my table tennis racquet and ball to school as the school racquets were not of good quality.We had a tournament in school and I won all my matches until the final easily beating the others 11-1, 11- 4 in the final I was up against two opponent and I was one but still I beat them but they were good and at stage I had to stretch so much that I almost fell. In the end I won 11-7 against them and I shook hands and immediately We ran to class

A new hobby

Image
These day I got a new hobby of climbing trees. It is not very easy as your foot might slip and you may fall but if properly done then interesting. Just a few days back I Almost fell from the tree but because of two lucky things I didn't : first one was that I holding onto a branch always so when I slipped I was still hanging and the second one was that it was a low branch. Today a friend invited me to climb his tree. When I reached the tree was an opposite of the trees that I was used to and its entrance and exit were narrow and the branches were thin. On my first attempt while climbing up it was normal but while coming down my knee got stuck and after a few minutes of struggling I could finally get down and on my second attempt I was only stuck for a brief few seconds.

My bro joins me in a full day school

My brother  recently came in first standard. Now he saves me a seat everyday as I come later. So I get a good seat plus time to chat with my brother and nowadays he become a bit tired because of the sudden change of time and sleeps in the bus but never mess with this little ninja even when he sleeping because he will get frustrated and suddenly that not the right place to be and he has a few tricks up his sleeve :). He is pretty defensive and goes to fight anybody who troubles me in the bus but sometimes I need to come forward and stop him because against a big person he doesn't stand a chance.My dog Coco is always there at the doorstep waiting for us and as we come he starts jumping and licking us.

My Tablet!

Image
I got a tablet for my birthday from my family. It is a micromax funbook. It has a ebook reader,games,internet,songs,camera and videos. I can do games for one hour. we all use this tablet and though a iPad or something would be better this is fine for us as we just want some games and internet, other apps won't be necessary. I like this thing very much.

It is not fair!

I alone have had a lot of incidents when elders boys are not being fair. Like when I am playing cricket and the big boys come into the game as I am the youngest I have to go last in batting and not bowl. I told my parents and they advised me to not play with them. This is very common as the big boys are better than the younger person and think why should they let them go earlier or even play and the younger person can't anything but not to play with them.

My Birthday!

It was my birthday on May 11th. It was a great day. The day started with a blitzkrieg of calls wishing me a happy birthday(not that I am complaining). Then I started doing my nintendo as I could do it for a lot of time as a birthday treat. Then in the afternoon we went out for lunch at our favourite restaurant. The food was as good as usual. in the end I got surprised when they came and gave me a strawberry cake. It was great. then in the evening i called some of my friends to eat the cake. I then play DS and Wii with them and then accepted a friends offer to watch the match together. When I came back home I was feeling sad that it got over but you can't get everything can you?

Chikmaglur!

We went to chikmaglur for three days. It was a great experience. We left on Friday morning and went on the way to nice road and  there we saw a few huge trucks carrying two huge windmill blades and at first we thought they were rockets. On the way we stopped at a restaurant and there toilet was written as tiolet. We reached there on Friday afternoon after a five hour journey. we were staying in Naturecraft homestay. It was 8.5 kilometres from chikmaglur town. when we reached there, I opened the gate and was going to follow the car when the owner told me to go by a shortcut. My parents were a bit surprised when they saw me. I went to the hammock and rested and then played my Nintendo, ate lunch and then played with Gautam. I saw the match and then went to sleep. 

The next day we went to MG park and me and Gautam tried everything there and then went for a toy train trip around the park. We were very exhausted and tired. Nana and my parents had some of chikmaglur's famous coffee. th…

Gautam's Summer camp

Gautam is also going for summer camp this summer but at a different place. He is enjoying himself. He does activities like dance,yoga,pottery(he made the hole in the pot but still good for his age)craft. He already has made many things and just dances if he hears music(He wasn't like this before) attempting to sing some songs that I listen. Mom or dad drops him on the way to the school to get me home and then we pick him up at 1o'clock. He will be telling us what they did today and show us the dance. When we reach the place where his summer camp is held to pick him up he will be in the sand pit making sandcastles.

Coaching

This Summer, mom enrolled me into the the school summer camp in badminton classes. I am in the second batch and I am enjoying it there. There good part and bad part. The good part are that I get to play and learn but still I have difficulties in hitting smashes but sometimes I can hit it. The bad part is the exercises and that half the class goes in exercise and that there are tiny black things on the ground which makes our hands and sometime face a little black(It come into faces when you wipe sweat with dirty hands which are black) . I am having lot of fun.

Gautammisms

Gautam has been doing some pretty funny antics these days. So I decided to write it down before I forget it. Mom taught gautam a new word which was bladder. Few days later Gautam mentions bladder as blazer and adder. Then I taught him how to talk through the speaker of a phone. Then when dad picks up the phone and listens gautam talking he tells him to stop it and then asks kya aap Sreekanth hai. Gautam replies through the speaker nahi mein Gautam hun. We all started laughing.

One more new word that he learned was railway track but he always pronounces it as railwo track no matter how many ever times we correct him. Gautam learned two rhymes and whenever we sing it wrong he starts telling them correctly to us(for once correcting us instead of getting corrected).

The sixth and the last exam

Today was my sixth exam. It was Hindi today. In the free time, A 5b student started hitting everybody with a roll of newspaper. When he came to hit me I just started blocking and then sat down waiting for the exam to start. When the invigilator came, then everybody started writing.

Then after finishing when I revised I found that I made many spelling mistakes and after correcting I submitted it and then we went to our class. There, my Science teacher gave me a pen and a chocolate because in the revision test I did well then we all wished each other happy holidays, then went down and then went home.

My Fifth Exam

My fifth exam was English. It was there yesterday. It was of medium difficulty. I am glad that it is the second last exam and tomorrow after reaching home holidays start. It is going to be a long vacation. When the invigilator gave us the paper we all started writing and I after finishing and checking started waiting again.

Then when it got over I ate  my food and started going to a 5b student's place to read the book he was reading. Then when the bell rang there was a rush at stairs to go downstairs. Then after the meditation we went home.

My Fourth Exam

My fourth exam was Social Science. In our free time before the exam a boy from 4c came. He used to trouble us a lot. Then only my classmate was drinking water and that 4c boy pushed my classmate because I pushed him because he started hitting me and the water got spilled on the table and I cleaned it.

Then the invigilator came and gave us the paper. It was very easy and I finished it quickly. Then we ate our short break and I sat with A 5b person and me and my classmates were discussing the answers. and then we all played as there was no teacher. Then we went down for meditation down when the bell rang and then went home.

My third exam

My third exam was science. All those who got their science book were studying and I had a look at fifth standard science textbook. Then the invigilator came. She was the meditation teacher and teaches Sanskrit to the higher classes students. She gave the question paper and answer sheet and we started writing. 

Then at around 10:00 a science teacher came and told us that the True or false had everything false and some wrote one question as true and got saved from losing one mark. I finished and then started waiting for the bell to ring. 

When it rang we all went back and sat outside the class because they did not finish and me and my classmate started asking each other questions. Then when we went inside we ate our food and I started playing some games we could play a scale, a eraser and a sharpener. then we went to do meditation and then went home.

My second exam

My second exam was Mathematics. It was also a easy paper and I will hopefully get good marks in it. The invigilator was the aunt of my classmate. I first read the paper in the time given to us and then our invigilator ave us the answer sheet and we started writing. 

I started doing my calculations in one side of the paper and wrote the answer. Then I revised and in a hurry gave the paper to the teacher as there were only few minutes left. Then we ate our food. Then our invigilator made us go back to our class at 11:20. There I sat and started reading science and our class teacher asked us questions. Then we went for meditation and went home.

Gautam's graduation!

Today was Gautam's graduation. We reached the school at 11 o'clock and went to the auditorium. Luckily today was a study holiday for me and even I could see the program. All the kids of PP III were in the front wearing those red scholar hats. All the PP II children were dancing on many songs then all PP III went to the stage, got there certificates and touched our swamiji's and came back and went to class in a line and there were sections from A to H section. Now at last we will have the same timings and  Gautam will be also coming with back to home.

Bookworm

I am a big bookworm and believe it or not I at least spend one hour everyday. I mostly read Harry potter

and I like comics very much. Mom even gets books from the library for me and I can read a novel in like three or four hours and I enjoy reading a lot. I have even finished and 700 page book in just 4 days and I read then whole Harry Potter series in two weeks, finished the Famous Five series and many more series.
The Bad thing is my head starts aching whenever I read too much and I hate to leave a book once I have started reading i

Christmas Holidays

I thoroughly enjoyed my christmas holidays. It was a lot of fun in Hyderabad and dad and me used play monopoly for hours and I played scrabble with mom and dad and carrom with dadi. Better weather than Bangalore as it become colder than hyderabad and I get tired of sneezing and one time I sneezed six times in row and it was just not going. Certainly thought it should have lasted longer and now after it, my final exams are getting closer and closer but one good part is that after final exams there is a big summer vacation waiting and I sure will like to see Gautam in 1st standard  and getting the same school timing. Coco is getting huge and when we picked him up he was jumping and running excitedly but one can't have everything can he and I got an award too by mom.

My first blog post!

Dussera holidays
I am glad that now I don’t have to wake up at 6:45 every weekday of your life. And that you can just sit in one place doing something and just enjoy. The thing I am looking forward to is playing my favorite video game on my Nintendo DS (for those who don’t what a Nintendo DS is, it is a thing on which you play video games). The thing, which is the most boring aspect, is I have got tonnes of homework and I envy my friend in seventh standard, who has none.
Even though I get a lot of homework. Vacations are always fun.
