Happy Birthday Google!!!

Today, on 27 September, 2016, Google has turned 18. Yes, you heard it right, today is Google’s birthdayyyy! Before we start singing the happy birthday song, here are some interesting facts about Google!

  •    The company actually wanted to name it googol, but because of a spelling mistake, it spelled Google.
  •     The number one continued by hundred zeros is called googol.
  •     Google calls its new employees nooglers.

The answer to all things is Google. We can search anything that we like. i don’t know how it would be without Google.

Thank you Google and a happy birthday once again!!!

Poem: Save Environment, It Saves us!

It is our duty to protect,
The environment at our best.
Be it a poor dolphin,
Or a little bird’s nest.

We need to protect them,
With all our might.
Those animals and trees,
Think of their plight.

If we help them,
They will help us,
Everyone will be,
Happy and bright.

So why not help the nature around?
Let’s plant lots of trees,
And help the animals
Save the land and mother nature,
The ocean and every creature.

It is our duty to protect,
The environment at our best.
That’s the best way to say
A HAPPY ENVIRONMENT DAY!

A Happy Women’s Day!

A Happy Women’s Day

A woman is a jewel of beauty, grace and happiness. She is hardworking, helpful and polite. Each woman has a specialty of her own.

All the women in the world are equal in god’s eyes. But for each of us, there’s a special woman in our life. It can be anyone, your mother, daughter, friend, sister or wife, but there’s a thing that’s common, important and special, and that is, she is a woman!

They may be tender and delicate, but have the strength of ten males. They work from day to night, dawn to dusk, with all their might. And for all they have done, we should thank them at least, so let us all say it together, A HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY!

It’s Spring!

The trees are swaying,

Their dew drops sparkling in the sun,

The bugs are hopping to & fro,

Every one is having lots of fun

The ground smells like roasted beans,

The sun sends a ray of hope,

A butterfly flutters across.

Sheep go down the hill slope

The grass looks fresh and new,

The flowers look happy too

Every one looks so cheerful,

But what is their reason?

Oh, I nearly forgot,

It’s spring season!…..

If I Would Be The Prime Minister Of My Country…..

If I would be the prime minster of my country, my first iniative would be to make India 100% educated. Whenever I go out, I see hundreds of people uneducated. I think if the people are educated, India will leap to a state, 100 times better than now. My second biggest initiative would be women empowerment. I will make them aware of there rights.Women are the back bone of our country, if the women moves the family moves and the country moves. I want to promote this saying a lot.

My next step would be to greenify India. NSymbolic-Colors-of-Indiaature can live without us, but we cannot live without nature and so I will make India rich in flora and fauna.

I will be so happy when my fourth dream will come true. I will promote classical music and dance and art a lot too. But for now, I must stop daydreaming and get to work instead!…

I Wish I Had A Camera With Me All The Time!

Oh how I wish I had a camera with me right now! I yearn to capture all those moments that will never come again. Mysterious, astounding, funny unbelievable, expressions that flitter on different faces. Sometimes, in our bharat natyam classes, a new student comes and teacher teaches the student expressions, I wish I could capture it. Or sometimes I drink cool lassi, my favourite, the calm expression is unforgettable. I can’t describe it to you. Or when I ask a riddle to my friends, they start scratching their heads and raising their eyebrows, mouth half open and half not they look very funny. Ha ha ha, how I wish I had a camera at that moment. So I thought of an idea, of making glasses  which could take photos, but then I stumbled on Google glasses, that could not  only take pictures and videos, but work as a real mobile phone. Do you have any wish like this? Share it with us. Thank you.

Say No To Crackers This Diwali

No crackers

Our India has many religions & traditions and not to forget the festivals; and as soon we talk of festivals, the word Diwali springs up. But there is a “but” in enjoying Diwali. Do you know why? Because I do not see the spirit of Diwali as it used to be. What do I mean? Let me explain.

Three years back, when I was 8 years old, we friends were discussing what we will be doing on the auspicious day of Diwali. One of my friend said, “I will go to the temple with all my cousins and family and then go to a restaurant to have dinner, then I will come back home late at night and leave for my village”. Another friend said, “I will make rangoli and burst lots of crackers”. When it was my turn I said, “I will help my mother in the puja preparations and will make lots of sweets too, then we will go and visit all my relatives and you know what, I am not going to burst any crackers this Diwali and onwards. I don’t want to harm Mother Nature”.

Then I asked my friends, “Will you too not burst crackers? At the mention of it, my both friends’ eyes plopped out, “what? Are you crazy, really?” They asked all kinds of questions to me-“Will you be even able to resist it?” asked my friend. I said, “Yes!” I was confident I could. When they saw me that confident one of them said, “We are not going to miss such an opportunity yaar! You do what you want but we are going to burst crackers. A lot of them. My father has already bought them.”

The other friend said nothing and just kept quiet. After playing for a while, when heading home in the lift she softly asked me, “You are not joking, are you?” I just said no, walked off to my home and went to sleep peacefully.

I am not bursting crackers for three years in a row. So you saw what I meant. But are the festivals destroying us or are we destroying their meaning? I read that in old times people used to make their own sweets, and there was no plastic packaging, everyone used to make their own rangoli powder with natural things and there was no toxic or chemical rangoli powders. They used lamps to light up the whole city and did not use artificial lamps and they did not burst crackers too, they just danced and sang and prayed. Above all they spent quality time with their family and friends. But today all people buy sweets and rangoli powder at the market. They use artificial lighting. And burst crackers too. They know all the disadvantages, but yet they choose to burst crackers. They know the crackers emit harmful gases; they could hurt somebody, create noise pollution, air pollution, water pollution & land pollution too.

After Diwali when I go to the playground, I see lots of plastic bags and boxes and packaging lying all around and no one bothers to pick them up until the garbage man comes and takes them away. We must spread awareness and celebrate a pollution free Diwali every year. We all are aware of the effects of pollution. Then why forget it on Diwali? We should not burst crackers and litter around. And keep our environment a happy and healthy one. As Gandhi Ji said, “Be the Change You Want to see in the World”. And we will be that change!

Book Review: YOUR TURN NOW!

book4Friends I want to tell you about a beautiful book published by Fun Ok Please:  ‘Your Turn Now’.

‘Your Turn Now’ is a book with small little blue cards which keep tugging onto your hearts till you pass the kindness around. This book has beautiful illustrations and stories of daily acts of kindness. Some of my favorite stories are the YTN merry go round, Small change Big change and Atithi devo bhava.

The message of the book is: Spread the kindness.
The kindness kit helps me a lot and I love the cards too.  I take the cards along with me wherever I go, hoping to pass the kindness around.

your turn 2This book inspires thousands of hearts to be super heroes of kindness. But is it a bit small compared to the population of the world? Oh yes, it is. The future of our world lies in our hands; we need to spread the kindness around to make our world a peaceful one and take the responsibilities and make it even better for the world, us and our future generations.

We all know, helping others and the poor and needy, means serving god himself.

This concept is by Rushab Turakhia, written by Lubania Bandukwala, illustrated and designed by Shraddha Pimputkar and edited by Sakura Kagwade. Its price is Rs.199 and is worth all the kindness. It is published by Fun Ok Please. And is a must read for all , not only for kids.

I must say it is my favorite book. It is more than a book.

The Best Navratri Ever!!!

After eight days of fasting and praying people invite girls to their homes, worship them, give them food, and small gifts because they believe they come down to the earth in the form of goddess Durga.  As a girl, I am invited, but sometimes I feel bored doing the same thing each year,  the same rituals, same food, same gifts. Walking from this building to that, totally nonstop, I felt exhausted, stuffing food in and carrying  all those gifts around I finally went home. And started discussing the whole day with my mother.When I told her, my feelings….Ok, she said let”s do something creative…. And that’s when we decided to do a dance, storytelling, and playing event for girls, no rituals, no nothing, just happiness, happiness & happiness. And you know, it turned out really fantastic. We danced, played dandiya, did storytelling, played a lot & finally gave the gift packets which contained wafers, chocolate, a packet of noodles & fancy things. We finally bid everyone goodbye. And when everyone was gone,  I went to my mother hugged her and told
her ” this was the best Navratri I ever had!…
