Clean air drive at the India Gate 2015......

Modern School Vasant Vihar organised a 'Clean Delhi Air' Drive at the India Gate on 28th November 2015. All the students from grades 4-12 participated in a silent march held at the Rajpath Road in New Delhi. I participated in this drive too and it was a proud feeling that my school organised such a grand event. There were over 1,000 students who participated to make the air cleaner in Delhi. The best part about this event was that we as children of the city of Delhi and the future of the city could do something good to clean the city's polluted air.
Each one of us wore badges,masks and walked for about 4 kms. The chief guest of the event was Mr. Salman Khurshid who graced the event with his presence. The students also presented a short skit and sang songs to make the event a big success. The National Anthem in front of India Gate was a moment to remember. It made me feel like a true Indian and I could feel my heart pumping the whole time.Go Modern!!!!!

National Amateur 2015.....

This year the National Amateur was held in Arya Samaj in New Delhi's Rajendra Nagar neighbourhood from November 15th-20th 2015. The tournament was played over 11 rounds in a swiss system format and was an intense battlefield with over 300 players. I played in this championship and it was a wonderful experience. I learnt a lot and gained some valuable insights of the game. I had also participated in the Delhi State Amateur Championships in April earlier this year which made me eligible to participate in this prestigious annual event. The National Amateur is for players who have a rating of 2000 and below and is the strongest event for amateur players in the country. Players from different states all over the country had come to take part in this event.
Overall the experience was fabulous and I hope to take part in many more such events in the future.

Festival time......

Come October end and most parties and carnivals start in our country. It is the time for the festival of lights and there are numerous other activities.
This is a time in the year when each and every Indian loves to eat sweets,celebrate with their families, thank the lord for their blessings and host gatherings.
We celebrate the unity of the country and the cultural diversity. It is the most festive time of the year and every one waits for this part of the year to come eagerly.
I love Diwali. Not just because of the lights but also because this is a time when I get together with my entire extended family. I get loads of gifts and enjoy the food. I also love thanking the lord for his blessings and always being there for me,though I feel that one must do that each and every minute of his/her lives.
Diwali has a rich tradition. It marks the victory of 'Good over Evil' and the return of Lord Rama to his home after 14 years in exile. Every year there is a separate date for this fe…
