Why this blog?

The nascent and fresh minds of students are so creatively inclined that they have the ability to bring into being a universe of their own. They are little tyros who would, with time, unfold into verves, momentum or sensations of various creative dimensions. A chalk sculptor, a clay artist, an amateur painter of Madhubani, Warli, a dabbler of still life, a budding poet, a tenderfoot writer or a fledgling lyricist – one gets all varieties of creatively-aligned students covered in a seemingly dilettantish peel. We at Shishukunj aspire to provide a humble platform to all such potentials to smatter around and mature into the perfection that they are seeking to epitomize or become! This blog is thus an endeavor that would allow all Shishyans to just play around with their latent artistic caliber and enjoy the bliss of a “BRAVO” from known and unknown quarters.

How Indore turned out to be Cleanest City in India

By Siddhant Athawale, Class XI F

'Ho Halla' has now become the 'Safai Anthem' in Indore. You can't miss hearing it when you visit the city. Sung by renowned Bollywood singer Shaan, the song has created enough euphoria for Indoreans, and it's almost their new identity now. The increased level of awareness has brought a major turnaround. But how did it all happen? 
Garbage is collected from every nook and corner of the city to make it look neat and clean. Every garbage collection vehicle is GPS enabled and every employee has to mark his/her attendance through bio-metric scanning resulting in maximum efficiency of manpower. Indore is now obsessed about cleaning itself. The bulk of cleaning in this city of thirty-five lakh people happens using a dozen  jumbo cleaning machines late at night, when the city is in the lap of sleep. 
Staying clean can be and should be a big political agenda for any government. Something that would have made even the Mahatma really proud of his country.

Night

Naqiya Barnagarwala, Class VIII B
The sun was out of sight
The stars sparkled high
And the moon shone bright
It was indeed a wonderful night.

I went out to admire the night
And don't know the reason why
However hard I try
The stars shine at such a height.
And soon
I saw the beautiful moon
And decided to watch it till monsoon.

The sky was dark
With only some spark of the Moon
Which came with its amazing glow
I sat down and applauded the show.

Let’s Call For A Change

Parth Goyal, Class VIII B

What is friendship? Is it just making friends or being with them till they are there in touch with us? I feel that is not friendship. Friendship is a bond that never breaks.
One thing I don’t understand is - What is the difference between a ‘best friend’ and a friend? Are ‘friends’ in any way less than best friends? We all have been together in all situations and found the solution as a team. I am a person who has experienced both, the time when I had no friends and the time when everyone in my class is my friend. Why such discrimination then?
One day, I questioned some of my friends about their idea of friendship. Some of them said, friends are the ones with whom they play, some of them said, friends are the ones they can talk to and have fun but none of them said that friends are the ones with whom they can share their deepest feelings!
I have another concern, are we living in a world where a person can be friendly only to a person of his/her gender because I’ve seen people behaving in an unfriendly manner when it comes to the opposite gender.
This happens even with me at times. I feel that we can be friends with both boys and girls. Friendship knows no bounds, and it doesn’t depend on gender, caste, creed or religion. Friendship is not about being partners in crime, it is more about learning and growing together.

So, let’s call for a change and take the decision that our friendship wouldn’t depend on gender, caste, creed or religion; that we will learn and grow together; that we will do something better. There are things beyond mischief, a world of knowledge love and trust. Let’s not discriminate. The definition of a friend on Google is absolutely correct, that is - a person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection. Let’s be friends!

Friends

Sameehan Trivedi, Class VIII B

When you’re feeling down,
And you don’t know what to do, to do.
Call up a friend,
And you’ll feel less blue, less blue.
Don’t sit around and mope,
When you start to get all teary,
Call up a friend,
And you’ll feel a lot less dreary.
Friends can bring us up!
Friends can make us smile!
So grab a phone and send a text,
Or better yet just dial!

Everyone Loves to Read Books

Agam Chawal, Class VIII C

Everyone loves to read a book,
From a sweet little child to a very evil crook.
It helps us improve our grammar skills,
It can be a thrill,
Or give us a chill.
So what if our milk spills!

A book can help us pass our time,
With some mystery or a crime.
Books can either make us sad,
Or even make us good or bad.

Everyone loves to read a book,
From a sweet little child to a very evil crook.
So please don't judge a book just by its look!

A Peek Into The World Of Books


Soumya Tiwari, Class X B

I sit beside the fire
On wintery nights
And read lovely stories
Of beautiful fairies and fierce knights.
I enter a totally new world
Which is a unique creation
A brand new place
Which is filled with imagination!
I meet some great new people
And ones who are too vain
Some are very intelligent
While others are truly insane!
As I keep on reading
I find out more and more
About where these people come from
And where they finally go.
Books are always waiting
To be opened and read,
And when you open them you’ll find
They have stories to be said.
