Topic :  I am happy when

Sreemayi K   Grade IV A- 1st Prize

I am happy in the morning,

When I hear the bird sing,

Merry, merry songs,

In the morning.

I am happy in the noon,

Our games start very soon,

And we will play till we are tired,

In the afternoon.

I am happy in the night,

Such a lovely night ,

Seeing the moon shining bright

In the night.

 

Name: Dipansha Agarwal Grade III D – 2nd prize

I am happy when

I am happy when I play,

I am happy when I swing,

I am happy when I talk,

And I am happy when I walk

I am happy when I sing and dance,

I am happy when someone hugs me,

I am happy when it’s raining

I am happy when it’s my birthday,

I am happy when everyone wishes me,

I am happy when everyone gives gifts to me.

I am always very happy.

 

Group 3:

 Name: T Pratik, Grade: VI B- 1st prize

Topic: Homework

 Do you like homework?

Neither do I.

I want to be free like a bird

Flying in the sky

All of our homework

Is all so irritating

I could ban all our homework

If I were the king.

When I do it all

I feel so relieved

And when I get it all

It’s like I’m never free.

If I were to go back

And stop this difficult thing

I would take the chance

And stop this thing.

 

 

Name: Aishi Raju, V B- 2nd prize

Topic:  Homework

Homework is a fun thing to do,

Math, Science and English too.

When I have no one to play with,

I go and do my homework.

Projects or diagrams,

Both are very interesting.

When I have too much homework,

Sometimes I have a headache,

So, I do it in the garden

Or right in my bed.

I have to do homework

It makes me feel good,

And when I finished it completely

I run off to play.

 

Name: Om Dhotre, Grade:VIIB – 3rd prize

Topic: The Last time I Cried

It was a Tuesday

On the 19th day of July

I woke up in the morning, happy.

But I had no idea I would cry that day.

I was selected for extempore

I was energized and happy

I boarded the school bus, excited

But I had no idea I would cry that day.

 

When I reached school, I was more excited

I was so energized and pumped up

I thought I would do my best and my better

But I had no idea I would cry that day.

 

Then came the time for

The biggest day of my life

It was a huge competition

I knew I had to win it

But I had no idea I would cry that day.

 

My turn to speak came

The anchor called my name

I took a deep breath

And stepped on the stage

But I had no idea I would cry that day.

 

As I looked at the thousands of people before me

My leg and my fingers started to tremble

My heart was beating fast and I thought

“Will I do well? Will I win?”

But, I had no idea I would cry that day.

 

My speech had a bad start

Like the wheelspin of a racing car

I almost forgot what my topic was

But then I caught up.

I spoke all the words that came into my mind

But, I had no idea I would cry that day.

 

At last, the anticipated moment came

The time for announcing the results

I folded my hands and started praying

For my luck and my life

But, I had no idea I would cry that day.

 

The winners were Prachi and Manhar

I felt like broken glass

I told to myself,’Chin Up, you’re a boy”

But that was of no use for a boy like me.

I really had no idea of I would cry that day

 

Then school was over, I was going to the bus

Sadly thinking about all my efforts gone in waste

Thinking about all my classmates saying tome,

“Congratulations, Om! You lost!”

Well, I had no idea I would cry that day.

 

I settled in my seat

Still thinking the same

I rested my head on the seat

Trying to forget and sleep the same.

 

I felt like crying, then

I thought of all my efforts

I couldn’t control my emotions

And I started to cry and cry and cry

That was the last time I cried.

Name: Sarvesh Paradkar, Grade X- 1st prize

When everything goes wrong

I woke up from sleep

And fell down a bed so steep

I went down for breakfast, still feeling tired

Then found out that the milk had expired!

Right then   my neighbor started their blaring song

Why, today, was everything going wrong?

 

I was already late, so I decided to run to the bus stand

A bad decision I realized as I slipped in the sand.

When I finally reached, the bus was nowhere to be seen

Was it yet to come, or had it already been?

A man told me, “The bus has already come for the day”

Why was everything going wrong today?

 

When I came to school, I was super late

The teacher was already writing the date!

So I stood outside, staring at the class

Guess this was a subject, I wasn’t going to pass

Then there was a break and everyone, except me, went to play

Why was everything going wrong today?

 

Then I looked at the timetable, it was going to be all right

The next period was games, everything was just right.

 

Name: Roma Samala, VIIIB-  2nd prize

Sometimes I wish…

Once along the beach

I saw something in my reach.

It was a dirty looking lamp

In a place that was very cramped.

 

I smeared some of the mold

To uncover a lamp that was gold.

The lamp started to shine bright

And out came golden light.

 

An abstract figure emerged from the lamp

Blue and gold and not at all damp.

The figure said ‘I shall grant you three wishes’

After that all you will get is three empty dishes.

 

“So use them wisely”, he said

And without disagreement, I followed where he tread.

My first wish was immortality to fly

So I could go up and touch the sky.

 

My second wish was to be rich

And this was for real without  a glitch

At last came the third vortex

Should it be simple or complex.

 

So I wished for a million more wishes

And so, I got no empty dishes.

I started to wonder what could go wrong

Thinking this is a dream and it won’t last for long.

 

So out there I wandered

With my wishes not forgotten.

I knew this dream was actually true

So all I could do was be wise and look at the sky so blue.

Topic: The bird who couldn’t fly.

There once was a bird who couldn’t fly, she was a sparrow. Since the minute she was born to the last try she couldn’t fly, no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t fly. All the other birds would tease her because she couldn’t fly. She felt like crying when they teased her. She only had one friend who cared for her very much. They were best friends. No one could bring them apart .She always felt joyful when her friend found a way to stop others from teasing her. One day as they were talking about why she could not fly, a huge bird came down and took her friend away. She called for him, but all in vain. So she had only one chance to rescue him. She flapped her wings harder and harder till they lifted her off the ground. She kept trying and she finally got the hang of it and she went faster and faster and finally caught up with the huge bird. She found her friend and stopped the bird from eating him. Then they went back to their tree happily.

Topic: The bird who couldn’t fly.

 

One day a girl was walking in the garden. She saw a beautiful bird flying in the sky. Suddenly the bird hit a branch of a tree and fell down.  ‘Oh dear,’ The girl said as she ran and picked the bird. Then the girl took it to her home. There she bandaged the bird’s hurt. Then she gave the bird some food to eat and some water to drink. After some days, she removed her bandage. The bird tried to fly again and again but it couldn’t. It tried the last time and it flew. The bird and the girl were both happy.

Topic : My Journey On a Pirate Ship

This story is all about my journey on a pirate ship.So here goes.I was on vacation with my friends on a small island. There, I saw a ship.  A ship that wasn’t ours.So I decided to take a peek.When I got on, the ship started moving. Curiosity killed the cat and all that….When someone was lifting the anchor, I realized I was not alone.I was drifting away from my friends!  Jack! Save me! Anyone here?” I shouted.  Who should come, but the pirates themselves.I realized that as I heard the deck creaking.

I had been running to and fro in my fear when I tumbled over a chest.  I had found a treasure chest.It had a imprint of a skull on it which was made of gold. When I opened it, I realized that I had hit jackpot. I filled my pockets with coins.

Meanwhile, the pirates had caught me. I thought they were going to loot me and push me off the deck.  On the deck, when I looked around, I realized that the boat was only a few metres away from land.I thought I could jump off.  I was sweating profusely. The clock was ticking and the boat was slowly drifting away. I made the decision in a split second. I dropped all the coins for speed and weight reduction.I jumped off the deck using the same plank.  I swam and later when I reached the beach, ran very fast. I was lucky the pirates did not chase me. So I hope this tells you what to do and what not to do on a pirate ship.Now this is just something extra.The captain had a hook for a hand! Weird ,huh?

Topic : A Dark Hallway

It was night. I was in my room watching videos on my laptop because it was the weekend.It was around mid-night when I heard a noise from the hallway.I was really scared.So I ran to my parents’ room and woke my mom first.She told me that it might be coming from the kitchen. And then she told me to go have a look.  That should have given the game away.  Which mother tells you to go and check a dark hallway?

I went to my room and quickly grabbed my toy gun filled with water.  It was not regular water.It was paint water.I wore my baseball hat which made me feel more like an under-cover agent.  I tiptoed down the stairs.I heard another sound which was louder. I finally got downstairs.Now, I had to pass through the dark hallway.My heart was beating faster than usual.I was scared of my own footsteps.As I was passing through the hallway, I heard different sounds from my brothers’ room, which was weird because my brother had left for college.  I opened the door slightly, when I realized that my little sister uses his room.She was playing with her dolls.I asked her to accompany me to the hallway.Now we had to go inside the kitchen.I opened the door to make sure no one was there.Then I noticed that the light was ON.My sister smelled cookies and opened the door.There,  I saw my dad. He was stuffing his face with cookies.  So, my dad was the thief of the day and was coated with pink paint.  And what’s more, I turned around to see my mother doubled over with laughter!!!

 

Group 4:

Name: Namratha Alluri , Grade IX B- 1st prize

Topic – A friend who moved away

As far as I remember, the time I spent with her, the joys we celebrated together are the most precious memories I have. She was Aprajita Mukherjee, my best friend, whom I can never forget. We were together since we were in first grade. We used to get time to play before the assembly started. Somehow, we were the only ones who would not hear the bell and always ended up going late to assembly. And once, the teachers were so annoyed that they made us stand in front of the crowd while the assembly was going on with our hands touching our toes. You might be thinking how embarrassing it would have been.

But for me, it is a precious memory. Even though we were punished, we kept on laughing and chatting which is what I remember. Then, another time, while we were playing in the play pen, we suddenly saw a spark in the sky. We thought it would bring us joy, but it brought us life-long misery.  It was a UFO.  It came down, and suddenly everyone in the school vanished. Aprajita and I were wearing black clothes with our hair put up in a bun. The first thing the alien with one eye and an antenna kind of thing on his head, green in colour said “We hate black” with an angry face.  Aprajita and I looked at each other and saw that we were indeed wearing black clothes. We were brave enough to ask him why he had come to earth.

He replied,” I have come here to take one of you away from the other, because we hate when two people are very friendly and have a lot of affection between them.” We were proud that he had indicated that Aprajita and I were best friends. Without another word, he took Aprajita with him. I started crying and I suddenly heard my Mom calling me. And I woke up and realized it was just a dream.

But we did get separated that year as I changed my school. Till date, there are nights when tears fill my eyes when I recall these memories. I still try to look for her in social networking sites. She was funny, she was kind and we got along so well that the bond we shared, even if it was so transient has left an everlasting memory.

 

 

Name : Shriya Menon,  X – 2nd prize

 

Topic: A friend who moved away

She was not just a friend, Ashna was the sparkle if I were the diamond. IF I were gold, then she was the real value. She was my best friend.

In a world where there are girls and there are boys, we are those girls who think, act and work like boys. We don’t really understand what runs in each other’s head, but we, surely do the same thing. Ashna and I have shared a lot of experiences and adventured together.

One of them was a time when both of us had gone to take our neighbor’s dog for walk.  We were so engrossed in our talk that Hatchi, the dog pulled itself and ran away.   It took a long time for me to realize that Hatchi was missing. Both of us started to run around our whole complex looking for him. After two and a half hours, we went to Mrs. Bring our neighbor, to tell us that Hatchi was missing, but to our surprise, we saw Hatchi peacefully sleeping in his garden.

There were so many more adventures filled with joy, excitement, anxiety, guilt, depression that Ashna and I shared. If I had a chance,I could write a whole book about it.

Ashna is now in Bombay, and even today, after 3 years, she tells me that she doesn’t belong to the city and wants to come back. And I often think, I could give up anything for her to come and live here again and be able to spend time with her.
