A little writer's words

How we can use the medium of television responsibly

Television is an electronic medium. It is a source of entertainment. We can use it responsibly by watching only selective channels. It helps us to improve our knowledge. We get news and information from all around the world through the news channels. My favourite channels are Pogo, Discovery, Cartoon Network and Star- Utsav. Through the TV we can watch sports like cricket and tennis, without going to the stadium. So, TV is an essential part of our life. But we should not watch it all the time. It may harm our eyesight.

Celebrating Independence

Independence Day is our National festival. We, the Indians, celebrate Independence Day on August 15 every year. The most important day in the history of India is August 15, 1947, because it was on this day that India won her Independence from the British rule. August 15 is a red-letter day on the Indian calendar. The day is a national holiday in India. On this day, in the year 1947, the tricolour flag was unfurled by Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India at the Red Fort in New Delhi. Since then, the main function of Independence Day is held there every year, where the Prime Minister unfurls the national flag. On this day, we remember and pay homage to the freedom fighters. The Prime Minister pays tribute to martyrs and leaders of the freedom struggle. Government offices are specially illuminated on this day. Schools and colleges around the country organise flag hoisting ceremonies and various cultural events within their premises. Members of various clubs also hold entertainment programmes and competitions on Independence Day.

Tribute to teachers

India celebrates the birthday of former President Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan as “Teachers Day” on September 5 every year. Dr Radhakrishnan was born on September 5, 1888, at Tiruttani near Chennai. He was also the Vice-President of India from 1952-1962. When he became the President of India in 1962, as he was a famous Indian teacher, some of his students and friends requested him to celebrate his birthday on September 5. He replied, “Instead of celebrating my birthday, it would be my proud privilege if September 5th is observed as ‘Teachers’ Day’.” Since then, September 5 has been observed as Teachers’ Day in India. We should always respect our teachers. What we learn from our teachers remains with us throughout our life. Various programmes are held in every school on Teachers’ Day. By celebrating Teachers’ Day we thank our teachers for providing us their invaluable guidance.

The Goddess arrives!

In our country, there are a large number of festivals among the Hindus. I would like to write here about one of the important festivals of the Hindus. This festival is known as Durga Puja.

Goddess Durga is worshipped during this festival. Durga Puja is celebrated in the month of September-October every year. Goddess Durga has three eyes and ten hands. She holds different weapons in Her hands. She has two sons, Lord Ganesh and Kartik. Her one foot is on the lion and the other on the demon.

Goddess Durga is worshipped for three days. Her images are immersed in the river on the fourth day. Schools and colleges remain closed for some days on this occasion.

People wear new, colourful clothes. Children are very happy at the time of Durga Puja. So, it is a very happy festival for the Hindus.

Wish you a very happy Durga Puja!

    1. This Children corner and Ritwick's article remind me my school going days and all activities performed in classrooms, playground, competitions etc.

      The paintings done by Ritwick remind me the most interesting Drawing class -sketching with pencils, colouring & painting etc. And mainly the days we used to celebrate on independence day and specially the Teachers' day when there is no study at all in school once in a year, enjoying different entertaining programmes performed by teachers & students.

      Nice writing Ritwick.Keep it up
