Festivals are moments of excitement and joy which takes us to our nostalgic memories. There is a huge difference in celebrations that I experience now when compared to my childhood days.Nowadays celebrations are just a platform to build business and to show ones capabilities to others. In earlier days we had a remarkable difference between religious festivals which proves the concept of “Unity in Diversity”.But now festivals can be best defined as “Offer seasons” or “Sales Festivals”. People rush to malls and other showrooms to grab the best of the available products by just forgetting the value of festivals.

I was lucky enough to experience (Once in past) the purity and real joy of such festivals in my childhood days. One among such festival was “ONAM“. Me and my friends prepares at least a month before the day of Onam, investigating on how best we could execute this years Onam when compare to previous years. I was in 10th and was the “School People Leader” of that year (To be honest). We decided for a two days Onam celebration to be held upon.To start the celebration we had a friendly match between Staffs and students.Though the match was declared officially as friendly we both faced it as a battle field. I was the captain of students team and Ravi master(Our Tamil Sir) was the captain of the opposition.
Our principal controlled the match who was partial towards his employees(To make it funny).The first half ended without conceding any goals by both the team.The next half started off with a sudden attack from our opposition and they struck a goal. Later on towards the end we strikes them back with a goal and the match ended in a draw.To celebrate the unbeaten victory both the team was awarded with a bunch of banana(The ever rolling trophy).
The day ended with yet another interesting game “THE TUG OF WAR”. There were two separate competition for male and females. Both were between students and staffs. To agree with the fact students won in both the categories.The celebrations though ended for the day in our school, we rush to our homes eagerly to be a part of our village celebrations to be held up in the evening. We enjoyed “Uriyadi”,”Pulikkali” etc till six and our prestigious “Tug of war” between two neighboring towns help at 6:30.
The team names and members name were announced and to the surprise my father was a team member of my home town. We all supported for our home town and at last we defeated the neighboring town with 2-0.
The next day morning we all got up early and went out to pluck flowers for our “ATHAPOO” competition to be held in our school.We dispersed ourself in small groups and each groups were assigned with some particular type of flowers to be collected.The competition starts sharply by 09:30 am and was alloted with maximum of 2 hours to complete the competition. Despite of different opinions and suggestions we some how completed our floral design. Some boys were allocated to safe guard our “Pookkalam” from our other class intruders.



There was a common visiting time for the entire school students and staffs to witness the “pookkalam” and to make judgments. We hang behind our favorite teachers to influence them. At the end of the day we all assembled eagerly awaiting the results. Category wise the results were announced and in senior category we shared the first place with 09th A-section. The day was ended with complete joy and to add to it 10 days of vacation was announced.
Now, when I remember about those golden days it really shook up my emotions.What we gain from our life is all such happiest moments. If we cant hold it up then what is life all about?

Who was wrong?

Who was wrong?

Some 8-9 years back in my primary schooling my history teacher taught me about the second world war, we were stunned when we realized the terror that hit the world long before. But our fears soon diminished when the next chapter was taught to us, that was about UNO(United Nations Organisation). We thought that our future would be a peaceful world without wars and blood flow. We but failed at the other end to realize the situation of the world at that time since it was our childhood. But after a short journey through life now I realize that our world would go further worst.

We all witness the day to day terror that takes place through out the world. What UNO had done against these brutal homicides. I always wonder for the reason why they have formed?. If they do not have power to stop these intrusions by nations should they remain as a dummy watchman for all these happenings?.

Rather protecting the powerless nations they functions as a committee to decide whom should attack whom. Is this the purpose for what they have formed?. Like a corrupted officer why should they add fuel to fire.

We all blame on Indian politicians and constitution for not attacking Pakistan for their attacks on us, but do any one of us tried to find answer for a simple question “Finally who is going lose or gain?”. What we should show as an example for the rest of the world should be what was taught to us by our great Leader “Mahatma Ghandhi”.

As human what can we do?

1. Propagate to all our friends and our young chaps to follow the path of peace.

2. Realize the fact that ultimately we all should face the almighty, so lets prepare for a best approach.

3.Avoid the thought that prayers are meant for only saints or priests.

4.Love your Nation and above all love your fellow beings.null

They were just sapplings..who was affected by them?

One big question that remains unsolved in the present is “Terrorism”. Some of us live a luxurious life and some in poverty. But the similarity that exists among the two category of people is that none of them are concerned to have a look at the world situation. Why is it so?

The rich people doesn’t care for the worst situations or for the disasters that occur in the world. Its because they are always in the lap of luxury and turn their back towards it, even though they are aware of it. Its not completely their fault because of the fact “only affected ones bothers for the cause”.

Now lets see the next category that’s the poor people. They always wander for their existence or survival. They will never bother how the world is, because they are in a marathon to meet their days.

But when we talk about “Terrorism” and its cause, who really are the creators of Terrorism ? or who are affected by it?. The single answer for these to question is the same that is both the rich and poor. If both these categories were bothered about its cause and effects then the world would have been a better place to live.

What may be the cause of terrorism:


2.Greedy towards Power?

3.To prove ones Dictatorship?

4.To Spread Religion Spirit?

5.To Save or to protest some theories?

6. Or some thing else…

Please respond to this discussion. Lets join our hands to wipe away terror from our world and try to bring peace.
