Rewriting The Past

In this life of COVID-19, one day I was chilling out in my room, aimlessly switching the television channels and munching on some fries. Out of the blue, at a totally unexpected time when no one usually visits us, the doorbell rang. Perplexed, I walked up to the door and flung it open. My cousins were on the door! I was shell-shocked to see them in front of me and was about to fall. They traveled by their car to surprise us. I was thrilled and so excited.

The view filled him with serenity, calm and peace. The sight from this point was immensely breathtaking and its aura made it almost seem unreal.

We live in times when kids cannot have a gadget free childhood. Continue reading NEWS SHUTTLE – A NEWSPAPER THAT PROVIDES A WHOLESOME READING EXPERIENCE TO CHILDREN

THE FRIENDLY CROCODILE

It was a bright Sunday morning, bustling with the boisterous banter between Sarah and her friends. The children were playing hopscotch by the lake which was near Sarah’s home. Mrs. Rodrigues, Sarah’s mother, was watching them from the kitchen while preparing sandwiches for the children to feast on. Suddenly there was a loud scream “AAAAAAAA”.
