The first session of Animals

SheruI am
a tiger
named Sheru.
I am only 3 years old.

One day I went to meet my friends. Their names were Bippo, the hippopotamus, Bagra, the panther, Bichu, the giraffe, Halwa, the elephant and Balla, the monkey. I played with them every evening. I liked hide & seek the most. One day Bagra drew the best in school. He scratched the stone a little on which he had drawn. His scratching had made an awful sound. When we returned home Bagra’s father uncle Diego visited us. He liked our den. My father Sher Khan was very happy to see Uncle Diego. Uncle Diego gave me his two long teeth and said, “use this to protect yourself from enemies.”

The following day i was roaming around the forest in search of prey. After sometime I didnot realize and suddenly i was caught in a cage. I tried all day to free myself. Then I heard the elephant’s parade going. I called my friend Halwa. He came with his family and friends and freed me with his trunk.

I tried to get back home. But I could not find my way home, owl in night
as it was very dark inside the deep forest.
I was so confused that I could not tell which path led where.
I heard an owl was hooting some where near by.

I became very scared. Suddenly, I saw something glowing beside me. So, I became more scared. Sweat came down through my body. I tried to escape, so i started running. After few moments I reached near the banks of a river. I looked up and saw the stars twinkling in the night sky. twinkling of stars

Then I heard a roar. Then i again saw something was glowing beside me. So I closed my eyes. Something touched me and I was about to run again. Then I realized that it was my father who was looking for me quite anxiously. At last I went home happily.

Brain Drain – A common problem in India

The main cause of brain drain is un-inspiring education and high competition in India. The number of educational institutions (primary, secondary and high) is limited compared to the number of students, who are therefore enrollment. Hundreds and thousands of our qualified young stars take off from international airports in order to acquire higher education and lucrative jobs in USA, UK, Germany, France, Canada, Australia etc. Most of these Indians often settle there attracted by the facilities and the higher quality of life provided in these countries. During the decade long debate over brain drain it has been decided that excellence is neither recognized nor rewarded in India. It has been estimated that the country loses approximately 2.4 billion dollars due to brain drain. Critics are of view that the developed countries provide higher facilities, pay packages and perks, the country cannot dissuade youngsters from going abroad. What has been India’s loss has been the gain of other countries where the youths have migrated.
