Dear Diary,

I have witnessed so many fairs in my life, but none to beat the Surajkund fair. It was a unique experience.

The crowd present was proof of the Mela’s popularity. The ‘Theme State’ chosen was Maharashtra. The fair was of international repute. Close to 20 countries and all the states of India participated in the fair.

The cultural evening programs enthralled us. It showcased some exquisite handloom and handicrafts. The multi-cuisine food court also provided ethnic cuisines from all over the world. The adventure sports and joy rides added sparkle to it.

We bought a few clothes and souvenirs for our friends. The physical exertion was catching up, but it was a reward in itself. I actually witnessed the various facets of our vibrant India.

Dear Diary,

Today, while going to the school, I saw a girl in untidy clothes., My mother told me that she was the daughter of the maid. I was moved to see her. The sweet, innocent face of the girl kept on haunting me the whole day. I came back home and was desperate to talk to her.

I talked to her and tried to convince her about the importance of going to school and about the ban on child labor. I told her that education is the way to come out from ignorance and suppression. I tried to make her understand the importance of education in one’s life and the benefits of being educated. She told me about her poverty and helplessness. She told me that she also wanted to go to school, but her parents did not allow her. I told her that I would talk to her parents and try to convince them.

The girl was happy to hear that and promised that she would definitely go to school if her parents would allow her.

Dear Diary,

Today was the best day of my life. I couldn’t believe my luck when Mrs Mathur, our science teacher, announced my name amongst the five students selected from our school to go to Rashtrapati Bhavan to meet Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, All of us felt so elated and important. When we reached Rashtrapati Bhavan, we waited patiently to meet Dr Kalam. As he walked in, he was hardly visible among all his security men, but we could feel the positive energy and a strange kind of aura. We all stood up and applauded as he took his seat on the dais. There was complete silence in the room when he came to the podium to speak. He inspired all the students to develop a scientific attitude, be enthusiastic and sincere in everything we did no matter how irrelevant it be.

I got an opportunity to ask him a question, but I must confess just being given that privilege was overwhelming. He was so kind while replying to my query. This day will go down in history as the best day of my life.

Dear Diary,

As I told you earlier, today we went to visit the Golden Temple and Wagah Border from school. it was a six hour drive from Delhi, but we didn’t feel tired as we were all playing games and munching throughout the journey.

We reached The Golden Temple around 9:00 a.m. We were amazed to see the neatness and the discipline inside the temple. After walking around for some time, we were all hungry. We ate a simple but delicious lunch from Lange, We felt blessed when we entered the shrine. The temple truly is a symbol of human brotherhood and equality.

We left for Wagah Border by 2:00 p.m. and reached there by 4:00 p.m., just in time to witness the military practice done since 1959 and the flag lowering ceremony. We joined in along with the thousands of spectators who were gathered there and sang and danced to the patriotic songs. The entire event created a patriotic fervor in the crowd.

 It was a great feeling and one of the best excursions that I have been a part of.

I started off confidently and could manage 1 of the add-ons that came unexpectedly without making any mistakes. The chief guest was the District Collector. His speech was really inspirational.

Dear Diary,

Today was quite an exciting and a learning experience day for me. We were taken to St. Xavier’s School to see the science exhibition hosted by the students. The walk in the hot sun to the school was tiring. We were happy when our teachers gave a packet of fruit juice to each of us, when we reached the venue.

Refreshed, we entered the stalls that were decorated with charts. The diagrams and the pictures drawn were really fascinating. What interested us the most was the working model of the human heart, digestive system and other organs of the body. Apart from that, there were models of futuristic vehicles that would cause no pollution at all, working models of waste treatment plants and machines that would warn us well in-advance about the natural calamities, all displayed and operated with solar energy.

This was an enriching experience for all. It has provoked me to think differently. I returned home quite enriched in knowledge.

09:30 p.m.

Dear Diary,

I want to share with you a very sad incident that I witnessed today, but I’m happy that in a world lacking in sensitivity, I was a good Samaritan to an old man. While returning from school, I was finding it difficult to cross the busy traffic point as the vehicles moved so fast and wouldn’t stop even for a minute.

An old man caught my eye as I stood there. He had a bag in one hand and was standing there, trying to get across the road. I could see that he was looking for help, but people walked fast without giving him a glance. I went over to him and told him that I’d like to help. I could literally see relief in his eyes. I offered to take his bag and slowly began to cross the road. The traffic policeman, seeing the effort, came forward and helped us cross the road.

As we reached the other side, I could see tears in the old man’s eyes. He thanked me profusely and blessed me. It made me feel good that I wasn’t the part of the crowd which didn’t have time to even give a glance at the distressed old man.

Monday, 23th October, 20XX

09:30 p.m.

Dear Diary,

Today, we were fortunate to see one of the seven wonders of the world, the Taj Mahal. Its architecture and sculpture amazed all of us. The guide told us that Shah Jahan; the Mughal Emperor loved his wife so much that he created this mausoleum as an unsurpassed eternal memory. I was spellbound by the massive architectural beauty that stood before us. As we walked around the monument, we were appalled to see the garbage of plastic wastes, and the scribblings on the walls. I really couldn’t imagine how anyone could try to blemish the historical monument.

We were then struck by the unbearable stench of decaying smell, emanating from the tanning industries as we walked further on.

I didn’t understand at that point of time, what I was feeling. Was it a deep sense of admiration or was it a sense of shame and resentment to those anti-socials who were responsible for defacing a monument such as The Taj Mahal?

Monday, 29th October, 20XX

11:30 p.m.

Dear Diary,

I sat up late to watch the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games 2018 that just concluded in Gold Coast, Australia. Proud that our country stood third in the medal tally with 66 medals to the 136 medals secured by the United Kingdom in second position and the 196 medals secured by Australia in the first position.

I was having mixed feelings, proud of those who gave India its glory, but after seeing the medal tally, felt sad. India could do better if the sportspeople were encouraged by giving proper facilities and sponsors. In our country, talent is not tapped early enough like they do in countries like China, Japan, etc. There is a dearth of professional and good coaches in our country. The sports scenario could do better if funds were given and utilized properly for training these youngsters. There is a lack of professional attitude amongst the sports/people.

Hopeful that this achievement prompts and provokes our country to have re-thoughts about its policies, and facilitate aspiring sports: personalities to bring honor to our country.

Dear Diary,

I am really upset with the way I reacted today. I couldn’t find the assignment that I was supposed to submit to the tuition teacher today. I had kept it in my bookshelf, before I left for school. As usual, mama cleaned up and rearranged my shelf and it wasn’t there. I was getting late for the class and thought that I’d make some excuse, but I was punished for not. submitting it.

When I got hacked, I asked mama where she had kept the assignment. I was very rude to her and told her not to touch any of my belongings. In my anger, I couldn’t see that she was hurt. When I went back to the room, I found it neatly kept on the study table. I did not even give her a chance to tell me and kept yelling. I found her sitting in her room looking sad. I apologized immediately for my outburst and promised her that I wouldn’t be rude to her and would keep my things in order. She understood my burst of temper and forgave me. I’m feeling so miserable for the way I behaved.
