Hindi is bliss…….

Since India got independence on 15th of august, 1947, Hindi has been it’s national language. Hindi is a breakaway from Sanskrit, which is a really old language. So, today I had my Hindi exam, and to be a little honest I don’t find a need for learning hindi in a world which gives more importance towards English and is changing everything accordingly. Many schools all over india are making hindi an optional subject where students can choose between Hindi and any other foreign language. It is a little tough at the beginning, when you start learning Hindi but believe me, after you are thorough with the basics, you will not find a language that is so pure to it’s roots. That is the actual reason why I chose Sanskrit in class 5. When you know either subject it is easier to learn the other. Now I know that Sanskrit is not an easy subject but learning Sanskrit is bliss. People all over the world are trying to revive sanskrit, one of the oldest existing languages known to man. I know you might be saying, “How can you say all over the world?” Well, I have an answer to that. a few years ago, My mother went to a conference where she has to present her paper. She had borrowed my camera. When she got back, I started scrolling through the content on the camera. I found something that I was genuinely shocked by watching. You wont believe me when I say this but there were around three scholars from Germany, Austria and Netherlands. At first they sounded like Indians. They’re accent was perfect while speaking in sanskrit. Yes, they were speaking in Sanskrit…… All that I am saying by writing all this is that we should at least try to protect our roots by learning a language that is a little more basic than the root, Hindi…….

A Paradoxical adventure (a story that i have written)

Year 2085, Mars. The Indians discovered life on Mars and started to inhabit it. Time travel was possible. I am Arul Susheel Kumar, known to colleagues as ASK and am a pilot for ISRO. I am sitting on the front porch of my house, looking at the atmosphere of the neighbourhood. A mission for me is long overdue. I am sitting there gazing at the horizon. At that moment, an old man walks by. He had a beard, a frail face, A twisted nose and a dehydrated body. He stared at me for a while. The next moment we found ourselves talking to each other, chit-chatting about different subjects like politics, general knowledge and physics. He seemed to have a surprising amount of knowledge. I stared at him for a moment in wonder. We continued talking for a while after i invited him for dinner. This is where it get’s exciting. He came home on time, We had dinner and sat on the same porch I met him on. He asked me if I wanted to know something and as any man’s curiosity would go, I said yes. He said, “listen to me carefully.” He started “In my world there is no life, that is because humans have moved to another planet, because of me. I warned them that something dangerous was going to happen, an asteroid was going to hit Mars, One of it’s moons.” His ‘something’ was to warn me about this asteroid impact and to tell me that i had to save the world. He went to sleep. When i woke up next morning I saw him lying on the floor breathless and he had no sign of pulse. He had died. 30 years passed, and I was a senior pilot in ISRO when the signs of the asteroid came. I knew what was going to happen. I went up to the chairman the next day and told him about what was going to happen. He thought I was a mad man and i was bluffing. 2 years later ISRO recorded the lowest pass of one of Mars’ moons, Phobos, over it’s surface. ISRO finally understood what was going to happen, Phobos would hit Mars in another year or so. They called me in and asked me for a solution. I didn’t remember what the old man spoke about the solution. Now, it was all upto the chairman and me to come up with a solution in 6 months. 6 months passed and we had come up with a solution. We decided we needed to leave Mars and the perfect place to go to was venus’ upper atmosphere. NASA and ISRO had come together and built a floating city in the upper atmosphere. The pressure conditions, Gravity and the oxygen level’s were perfect for human survival. we were about to leave mars when I fell sick and was hospitalised. The doctors told me that my condition was very bad and i would die very soon. Because of my work for ISRO, they offered me one last wish. I said I wanted to time travel. I went back in time and saw  someone sitting on the front porch of a house. I stared at him for a while. I sat down and we started speaking to each other……

My life so far…..

Hi, my name is Amogh and I study in class nine. My hobbies are playing games, listening to music, making aircraft (models, of course), playing the guitar, quizzing, solving puzzles, cracking codes, and working on my mac. I believe that I am very good at typing and that is why I am typing this passage for no reason. I also believe that I am good at quizzing (and that is why I win a lot of them). Oh! And I almost forgot one of my main hobbies, that is, reading. I am just so enthralled and enriched by just reading books that everyday I have reserved a particular time in the night that I devote to reading anything that comes into my time. The main reason that I am doing this is because, after a hectic day in school and after running for about an hour or so, reading is the only thing that calms me down after all this drama in school. After I come home I feel too lazy to study or do homework, so I just make a video if I have any in my mind or I just crash on to the sofa and start watching TV or Videos specifically my own because I need to know what aspect of my videos I can improve in the future. My aspirations in life are becoming a pilot and at the same time start making movies or short films as a hobby because I really like the idea of spreading a message through videos which is becoming really popular nowadays. We are living in a modern era of technology and at the same time a lot of competitions. From my experience in life up to this point in which I am typing on a PC, the main thing I will tech future generations is to use whatever that is available at hand to his/her own advantage in life. The future generations should also learn how to speak and communicate well because nowadays communication has become one of the most important things in day-to-day life. But what I won’t teach them is mugging up the answers because that is not what I did and that is what I will never do in my life ahead. It is what the children understand what is being taught not their mugging-up skills. That is why people clear exams with ease and struggle afterward in life with the perk of not understanding anything taught to them. Now to the point in my life that my aspirations of becoming a pilot is increasing day-by-day. Another one of my tips to the younger generation is to always look on the brighter side of a case because if they start looking on the darker side they will never be able to look over the wall to the brighter side and also because looking on the brighter side helps in pushing your body and soul to get whatever it is you want. But on the other side, if you keep looking on the dark side you will never get what you aspire and rather will be left behind in life while others rejoice over their achievements. I am also telling you that this article may prove to be discouraging to some folks, so, as I said look on the brighter side about all the tips and tricks that I have given you and the my encouraging behaviour. One last thing that you should have to succeed is a ‘can do’ attitude in life which will have a positive and everlasting effect on your brain. Follow these and a little bit of hard work, you will succeed.
