There was a boy called Sam. He was 8 years old. He lived in a village. Sam always helped the farmers. Everybody liked him and said that he was a good boy. One day he was going to work, when he met a mad man called Raju. Raju said to him “I will take you to a fair”. Sam did not know he was a mad man and followed him. Raju took him to his house and locked him into a cage. Sam cried “Mother….. Father…..”. His mother heard him. She took Sam out of the cage. When Raju returned to his house at night there was police waiting for him. They locked him into the jail. Sam and his mother and father lived happily ever after.
It was a rainy evening and i was returning from my tution classes. Unlike all the other normal days i was not accompanied by my father as he went for a tour at Delhi. The rain seemed to be increasing with every moment. It seemed that the Rain God was not in a good mood that day because of the heavy downpour. Also it was not possible to get any bus or a taxi at that time because the streets were to much deserted.
At that moment i found a car just stopped in front of me. The driver of the car was none other than Mr. A. Bannerjee, our next door neighbour. He opened the window of the car and asked me “Hey you, just hop in!” I thought that I could finally reach home. As I sat in the car, he drove me to my home. Inside the car the air was very chilling. I thought that i was feeling cold as i was all wet. Very unlikely of him, he did not speak a word on the way. To break the uneasy silence, i asked him, “How was your visit to Darjeeling, uncle?” To my astonishment, he did not reply. On reaching my home i told him “Thanks for the lift”. He said nothing and drove speedily away. I saw the car vanished round the corner.
I was all soaked when i reached home. My mother gave me some food to eat for dinner. She then said something, which i was not at all ready to hear. She told that Mr. Banerjee, our neighbour passed away on the way back home from Darjeeling. He suffered a massive heart attack. The food in my mouth froze and i was seized with horror.
When we went to Darjeeling, we went for a ride on the Toy Train from Ghum Station. This station is famous for it’s height. It was a wonderful ride. The Toy Train had a steam engine at the front. It had 2 bogies from the steam engine. I was full of joy and happiness after the ride. I came to know that this train was closed for 5 years and from 11th June 2015 it again started it’s journey from New Jalpaiguri to Darjeeling. It is the Unesco World Heritage train. The scenary along it’s route is spectacular. It passes through Batasia loop. At Batasia loop there is a beautiful garden where the train stops for a while. It is one of the tourist attraction of West Bengal. – Soumil, 8 years

A 15 min shower brought a smile to pockets of Kolkata on Thursday afternoon. I saw floods of rain grumbling down. My parents held up the umbrella on the way. We were going to mom’s office. But the rain did not last long. The temperature was hot again. Soumil, 8 years

We have been eating Maggi since we were small. But now doctor’s have found lead in it. Lead causes cancer and cancer can kill people.doctor’s are saying not to eat Maggi. It would be difficult for many kids, not to eat Maggi. Ihave eaten Maggi at Gulmarg, where nothing else was available. Doctor’s also say some people are eating Maggi because they are addicted to it.
