The Fourth Meeting

     The meeting for our club members, the last before the vacation. As we joined at the library, our Librarian Sir, announced about the activity. Some students were called out, well, including me. The task was so simple, just to pass a small story from one another. The first to read the story was our Club Secretary Sweta Sashidharan from class 10th.

    It continued till it reached at the ear of the 23rd student, when the story had shaped out to nothing.
The funny fact was that at the beginning, the story started with an accountant. He was described as a 'Firm Accountant'. It even reached to 'Murthy, the farmer!'... Moreover, there had many endings for different students. Our Librarian Sir selected this activity to show how a news spread through a society. We all enjoyed, and laughed a lot!

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court

The name of the book is “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court “. 

The famous writer Mark Twain wrote this book. I think this book is the last book written by him as this was written on 1889 and he died on 1910. This book is divided into 29 chapters in 222 pages. This book is having simple English as students could understand. And when we read this book we fell all things are happening in front of us 

It tells a story of a Stranger's history. Who was an American person who went to King Arthur's court and made the people of the kingdom by doing magic and they believed it.  Then the people called him 'THE BOSS’. He then visited many places because of his magic he became famous in the places where he went.  He was having a friend named Clarence who was his companion in his magic. Then Yankee [the boss] will fight with the knights of a kingdom and it was conquered. After that, he married sandy who had helped him when he was to be hanged. In addition, they had a daughter. After there was a war between king Arthur and Mordred, in this war king killed. Then at a war, all of Yankee’s friends hid in a cave. At last, many of his people were died except Clarence, Yankee and Merlin. Hearing the death of his people, his laid down and he slept. After many days, also he was not awaked. Then Merlin said that all of us we die now except Yankee and he will sleep until 13 centuries. By hearing this Clarence laughed, laughed, and got a shock from an electric wire and he died .then Merlin will keep a book of all this happened in a script.

Revolution 2020

Revolution 2020 by Chetan Bhagat 

Revolution 2020 is a book by Chetan Bhagat, Rupa publications , Rs140. It  is the story of three childhood friends: Gopal, Raghav, and Aarti. The story is setup in the holy-city of Varanasi. This book is mainly about love, corruption and ambition. Gopal comes from a middle class background. Raghav is from an almost well to do family, where as Aarti comes from a rich and political family. Three of them have their own ambitions in life. Gopal wanted to be a rich man, Raghav wanted to change the world, Aarthi wanted to become an air hostess. The story tells about their triangle love story. Gopal chooses corruption as an aid to become a successful person while Raghav tries to change the world with his revolutionary ideals. He believes that by 2020 a revolution will take place which will change the world. In the end, things kind of change though, and you will be left to yourself to wonder who is right and who is wrong. Except for a faint hint in the end, Chetan doesn’t really judge what Gopal does is good or bad. I think that Raghav is right. The present generation and the generations ahead should not give into this corrupted system like Gopal. I too believe in Revolution 2020. Let’s all pray and work for it, for building up a better India.

book review- Ramayana by R.K Narayanan

Having got fed up reading fictions, I decided to go for a change. That’s why I decided to read epic stories. To be frank, now I am an epic fan! The credit goes to the famous author R.K Narayanan, whose book;’ The Ramayana’ has fascinated me to a large extent. His way of writing is simple and at the same time highly captivating. I just did not eel like keeping the book down, once I started reading it.  
Dasaratha was a happy going king who ruled the country named Kosala. The king was unfortunate as he was not blessed with any children. Then it was his minister Vasishtha who was wise enough to come up with Sage Rishya Sringa’s name. The sage performed a yagna and the offering that he got was divided among Dasaratha’s three wives- Kausalya, Kaikeyi and Sumithra. Kausalya and Kaikeyi gave birth to Rama and Bharatha respectively, and Sumithra gave birth to Lakshmana and Sathrugna. Rama was loved by everyone because of his kind behaviour and attitude. Rama was married to Sita- Janaka’s beautiful daughter. Now it was the time to choose Dasaratha’s successor. Being the eldest, the vote fell on Rama. But alas! Kaikeyi wanted her son Bharatha to become the king (Thanks to Manthara’s intervention!!) and she wanted Rama to be sent on exile for 14 years. Obediently, Rama followed his parents’ orders. He was accompanied by Sita and Lakshmana.
During his ‘vanvasa’ he destroyed many rakshasas. One among them was Shoorpanaka, Ravana the ten headed king’s sister. Ravana couldn’t stand it. He tried to kill Rama, in many ways but he was unsuccessful. Then he came to know o of the beautiful Sita. He was so lost in her beauty that he captured her and brought her to Lanka. On hearing this Rama became furious. He wanted to kill Ravana, but he did not know how to cross Lanka. During this time Rama, along with Lakshmana, came through the kingdom of the monkeys-Kiskinda. Rama became their hero, as he was victorious against Vali, who everyone hated because of his harshness. In the meanwhile, Hanuman went to Lanka and gifted Rama’s ring to Sita. On his way back, he was captured by the soldiers of Ravana, who lit Hanuman’s tail. With the lit tail, he set the whole Lanka on fire.
Later Rama decided to cross Lanka with the help of the monkeys. They were successful in reaching Lanka by building a bridge across the water. The fierce fight between Rama and Ravana continued for days. Rama was declared the winner as he defeated Ravana by shooting an arrow into his heart. By then the 14 year span was over. Rama, Sita and Lakshmana set back on their journey to Ayodhya. They were welcomed with celebrations and cheers.
It was hard to choose my favourite character from the long list. Even Ravana has got nobility in him. I like Lakshmana the most as he was an ideal brother. He sacrificed his own comforts for the sake of his brother. He supported him during his hardships. He helped him to destroy all the Rakshas. He worshipped his brother as God Almighty. Such siblings are rare to find in the present day.
A reminder to those who haven’t read the Ramayana- this is the right time to start reading it! I can assure you that you will surely enjoy it from the start to the end. So stop waiting and go grab the book right now. In fact I am waiting to read ‘The Mahabharata’ next.
