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.

Dear Mother

Nandini Shroff, Class IX F

Oh my mother,
My loving mother,
You are the one who’s always by my side,
You know everything about me,
Even the things I try to hide.

You were there when I cried,
And even when I laughed with delight,
You seem to have the most loving sight
Your love, by all means, is my right.

Oh my mother,
My lovely mother,
I’ll make you proud,
and try with all my might!

That is Nature

Mihir Bagadia, Class IX F

The clouds in the sky,
And grass heaven on land,
The water of gold,
The life of the earth,
That is our beautiful Nature.

The beauty of Pegasus,
The size of Megalodon,
The power of the mammoth,
And the light of the sun,
Can’t be challenged by anyone,
That is our Nature’s law.

The growth of life,
To the end of life,
Nature is on your side,
These are our Nature’s gifts.

Since the start of the world,
To the end of the world,
Take care of the Nature,
That is what the Nature wants.

We Will One Day Touch The Sky

Amaysi Kirti, Class IX F

We will one day touch the sky
We’ll let the bird inside us fly
We will work hard and never cry
Coz we will one day touch the sky.

Through the darkness and closed doors
We are going to go a million times high
Accomplishing our dreams without a sigh
Coz we will one day touch the sky.

Listen,
There is always hope left inside
Sit down and first decide
Leave your stresses and disasters aside

Coz we will one day touch the sky.

Teeth

Vasudha Gupta, Class IX D

The tooth went wiggle wiggle
And we did giggle
For we were young
And wanted fun

It was a milk tooth
It had to lose its booth
We would keep it under a pillow
And laugh through the window

We would clench our teeth
And make water pass through the chreek
And do all those things
That we now think sting

But now with permanent teeth
We can’t afford sweets
Or go to bed without brushing

Unless we want the germs bashing

Regarding need for Counselling in Schools

Sir/Madam

Subject: Regarding the need for Counselling in Schools

I, Abhimanyu Sethia, a student of People’s School would like to gain the attention of parents and concerned authorities, through the columns of your esteemed daily on the alarming problem related to stream selection at high school level.
I am a Class X student who is in the process of choosing a career stream and I feel that I am in a state of utter confusion. I am sure that there are many other students who are going through the same problems as I am.
Misleading advertisements and misinformation have made it difficult for students to take a decision. We, the students, require a source of genuine information and advice for a successful career decision.
Moreover, we can also see many students who lack the temperament and capability to excel in a particular stream, yet are bound to take it. Therefore, objective psychometric tests making students aware of their strengths and weaknesses is essential.
In order to mobilize such career counseling, the government, NGOs and school administration must set up counseling camps in schools and other places. Moreover, the expensive psychometric tests must be subsidized by the government.
I hope my letter would turn to be an eye-opener with regard to the dilemma that nearly every student faces in this crucial phase of his / her life and suitable measure would be taken to ease the confusion so that the future of our nation can work upon its strengths.
Thanking you
Yours sincerely


Abhimanyu Sethia

Humans, The Cause of Damage

Pearl Pahuja, Class VIII B

The relation between the rapid destruction and change in the environment and the lifestyle of people is quite overt. The damage caused by humans has left no one. The plethora of ill effects caused by this damage is not known to humans.
Hence, this makes it a burning topic to be focused on. Global Warming has rapidly increased as a result of weakening of the ozone layer. This, inturn has resulted in increasing greenhouse effect and desertification. The temperature of earth is rising, causing forest fires and droughts. Greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane too contribute in the rising temperature.
Not only these but other issues such as melting of glaciers, rising sea level are at the verge of occurrence, which can lead to submerging of huge coastal regions. The greed of humans has resulted in poaching or illegal hunting of innocent animals for their body parts and products such as ivory, honey, skin, etc. This is causing damage to the biodiversity and the extinction of various plant and animal species.
Humans have not only damaged land but have also polluted water. Sacred rivers such as the Ganga can be compared to a dirty stinking drain. Droughts, water-borne diseases, shortage of water are all caused because of water pollution.
Cutting trees is the biggest offence or crime one can do. Trees are the guardians of humans who provide them with food and shelter and also cure to most of our diseases. They are the oxygen banks without which we cannot survive.
Knowing all this, we humans are destroying everything around. This cruelty shown by humans towards nature has bewildered and angered me. In true sense they are not destroying the nature but are destroying themselves. The environment and nature is the biggest treasure of Earth and it is the duty of humans to protect and conserve it.
God has given us brain for the betterment of mankind. We should work for the betterment of our planet to reduce its burden rather than increasing its pressure and creating further difficulties. So, it is a matter to be given thought upon for how long we can survive in these conditions and when will humans understand that if she lives only then we live…?
