india of my dreams

Poetry: My India
By Siddharth R Nair (XB, Placid Vidya Vihar, Kerala) | NOV 2016
In my dreams
Comes the India which was a golden bird But now reality is different
In my dreams
Comes the India which was in the lap of culture and diversity
At, present in the trap of corruption and poverty.
In my dreams,
Comes the Indians with virtues of honesty, satisfaction and kindness
Unlike present, indulged in immortal things with full blindness.

In my dreams there is an India
Once famous as a land of snake charmers
But now, a land of suicides of hardworking farmers.
In my dreams
Comes the India with a peaceful atmosphere and no fears
Conflicting today, terrorist attacks, accidents and Wars
The Eyes are full of tears.
We heard “Dreams are dreams, they never come true”
But having faith and confidence makes us them, though
Let us take a vow on this New Year,
To make India “An INCREDIBLE INDIA“ is coming few years.
Poetry: together, we shall...
By Anitha Rose Joseph (XI G, Placid Vidya Vihar, Kerala) | NOV 2016
The land of my forefathers
India, my motherland
The land that emerged from the sea
A land fill with pride;
and a part of my forefathers dream.
The nation where truth still stands
and justice commands.
Where knowledge and wisdom still exist
The ideas of peace and harmony still amidst
Where the rivers still flow,
Carrying untold stories in encrypts.
A country of festivals and traditions
A land of devotion and worship.
The songs are still sung,
to all in different tongues,
about the wars that were fought
for freedom sake.
My love for my mother will never
But I still dream of a better tomorrow
And together we shall stand,
For the nation where unity was born.
To the land,
My mother land
where my forefathers were born.
His ticket to success came from strong will
By Vagdevi H.S., Nov, 2015
As they say, the real opportunity for success lies within the person and not the job; as was proved wonderfully by Mohan H. M., a simple bus conductor in a city bus who has secured a Doctorate degree in History.
Born in a small besmirched village of Harohalli, Mohan completed his primary education and moved to Mandya for college education. Nurturing his mind with great thoughts and ambitions, he moved to Mysuru to continue his degree. However, fate had a different plan. With the sad demise of his father, he had to quit studies and start working for Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC). When he started issuing tickets to hundreds of students commuting by bus every day, the concealed spark within him kindled again, which prompted him to work towards his dreams. He completed his Master’s Degree in History from KSOU and wrote the entrance exam for Ph.D. To his surprise, he stood second in the test, which assured him a seat to continue his research work. During the entire course, he juggled between work and a familial life while pursuing research paid rich dividends. Finally, all his hard work paid off and he was awarded the Doctorate degree. Being a voracious reader, he wants to publish books in Kannada to help students from rural areas to get a better scope of education. This, he says, is his humble service to the society. “As a student, I faced a lot of trouble not having access to research material in Kannada, which limited my resources,” he says. Today, not only his family and friends but also the KSRTC is incredibly proud of him and his achievements. Dr. Mohan H.M. has proved that the journey of success begins with one step and the strong determination to succeed.
