My Favourite Festival GANESH CHATURTHI


Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated between August and September. It is celebrated for the future of a prosperous life. We prepare Modak, Kadubu and sweets for Ganesha pooja and offer pooja for Lord Ganesha with flowers and garland. After pooja we have to listen to the story of Shamantaka Upakhyana.

Traditionally, the Ganesha idol was sculpted out of Earth from nearby one’s home. After worshipping the divinity in this Earth icon, it was returned back to Earth by immersing it in a nearby water body     . This cycle represented the cycle of creation and dissolution in nature.

The Wishing Chair – Exploration to Mars

By Sidhanth Kashyap – Grade 2 X


Wishing Chair and Mars

One day, Jack and Jessica went to the shed to tell Wishler that they decided to go to Mars. Wishler was excited and he screamed with joy. They got their spacesuits, put it on and sat on the wishing chair.

“One!”, called Jessica. “Two!”, called Wishler. “Take us to Mars”, said Jack, “three!”.

They landed on Mars. They saw some rovers and some deep valleys. They saw a Martian so they hid behind a rock. “Let’s go say hi”, said Jessica. Wishler was frightened. “Don’t be afraid”, said Jack, “we’ll protect you”. They said hi to the Martian. He was a kid and he was friendly.

He took them to his parents. They showed them the schools and houses.

The houses had red slime all over. The Martians treated them with some food. The food tasted bitter. They ate a little bit.

They thanked the Martian kid. “Now it’s time to go home”, said Jessica. They sat on the wishing chair and went home. Jack and Jessica were delighted to visit another planet.
