Purbayan Dey : Like an avarage Kolkatan he likes to spend his time by pandal hopping. Puja is a time when an avarage Kolkatan tries to enjoy his heart out. Specially after his half-yearly examination is over he is also going to have an nice time this year. He is a very hearty eater an likes to eat phuchkas.
He is also a student of class 9. This year he wants to enjoy the vacation speacially after his tests are over. He competes with himself every year about the number of pandals he has hopped. His count is 122 as he has watched all the four days of the puja. This year he hopes for something more.
like the above two energetic fellows he had discussed,he is in perfect contrast to them. He is a lazy fellow. After his examinations are over he said to Kidsunfold that I will spend the entire puja sleeping and eating. He fears that after this vacation he will be easily putting up 10 kilos.
Swarat Roy Chowdhury-
He is not a firm believer of this pujas and gods. And is a self centered human being (According to the inference made by the Kidsunfold team). He is a song lover and his favorite popstar is EMINEM.But despite of this he has decided to spent some time with his friends and enjoy his vacations.
He is a typical facebook-er who changes his profile picture at a duration at a duration of a few hours.But also he is a foody and likes to hop in the restaurants like Dominos KFC etc.But this puja he is also going to be the volunteer of his local puja pandal. So despite of his limited time he is going to enjoy his puja.
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.
Generation gap has become a common problem these days. Often we find that the children are not being able to match the expectations of their parents. The children in turn are quite dissatisfied with their grown-ups. The parents and the grandparents are not being able to adopt with the changing times and this has lead to the wide spread of the problems.That is why we find the parents and the children are complaining about generation gap, that leads to mal-adjustments in social life.
We know that every problem has its own solutions. So the generation gap can also be bridged. The only thing that is the co-operation of the Gen X, Gen Y and Gen Z or the grandparents, parents and the children is needed. Then only the problem can be resolved.
So let us start with how the children can react in order to curb this problem. We have often noticed that the feeling of love, respect and honour for the elders are gradually becoming absent in the minds of the children. So the children need to develop a feeling of love, compassion and respect for the elders. They also need to be caring and helpful and should try to act as an extra helping hand for their parents and grandparents. Sometimes the children specially the teenagers think that they are more independent and do according to their mind. But that should not be the case. They should made to understand that the elders have seen the world for a long period of time and they need to honour their experience. They also think that their parents expect a lot of things from them but the parents in reality only expect an effort in their studies.
It is not only the children who should be made responsible in order to bridge this gap. The parents and the grandparents should also took the initiative. They should provide them their wards with a bit of space. No two individuals in this earth are equal to each other. This should also be under thier knowledge. Times have changed and their is no scope for the parents to compare them with their children. They should realise and not expect much from their children. The world is not easy for them. Higher expectations can make life stressful for the students and can lead to moodswings.
So the role of the elders indispensible in the lives of their juniors. They need to guide them in the life and groom them without any indulgence. They should get prepared for the challenges that they face in their life.
“LETS BRIDGE THE GAP” should be the order of the day.
As I found the diamond ring, everyone was asking to solve more cases. This time when I was studying in my room someone shot a toy arrow in my room. I looked down the window and saw a man standing behind the tree opposite our house. In a paper attached to the toy arrow was written “MY BIKE HAD BEEN ROBBED AT NIGHT. WE CALLED THE POLICE BUT THEY COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING.” I threw a paper back to him were I wrote “OK”.
That day when I was roaming around the neighbourhood, I saw a glove lying behind a bush. But I thought that the thief had gone a long way off by now. I looked at the left and saw a broken house. I entered the house like a snake without making any sound. I saw no one and nothing suspicious. I went out. I went to houses of that neighbourhood. I couldnot find anything. After coming out from the last house i saw a large area with lot of trees. I went there hiding behind trees so that no one can see me.
Suddenly, I saw a man standing with a bike and was looking here and there. I went hiding behind a tree near him. When he was putting no attention that somebody could attack him, I jumped and caught his legs like this. I had a fight with him and hurt my leg. I took him to the police. They thanked me once again for catching the thief. They said “Well done, Little Detective”. My mother was angry with me as I hurt myself but she was also very happy as I caught the thief.
As I was crossing the road, I saw a crowd was discussing something. I went to them and asked what they were discussing about. One of them said, “A Diamond ring has been lost. We want it. Can you help us?” I said “yes’ because this was the chance to become a detective. My wish was I should get a chance to become a detective and this was my chance. I roamed everywhere in the city, Delhi to find a clue. After few hours I found the first clue, “a glass”. I took a long paper and wrote this
Now 6 clues were left to be found. Then I found a footprint. I wrote this as my second clue. It was getting dark, so i thought that I would find last five clues later. Next morning after school, I changed my dress and set out to find clues. Like this twenty more days went. On the twenty-first day I found enough clues to catch the thief. I went home. I throughly checked the clues that i have gathered, there was nothing of any person. I searched them again. This time in a handkerchief I found something on it. There was written “IF YOU CANNOT FIND WHO HAD ROBBED THE DIAMOND RING IN TWENTY FOUR DAY THEN YOU WILL NEVER FIND IT. HA! HA! HA!” then a picture of a diamond ring.
Then I set out to find him. It was the twenty-third day. I found someone was hiding behind a house. I went infront of the house and also hid there. The thief was trying to escape because the police was after him. I ran after him and caught him red handed. He was Mr. Chakarvorty in disguise. I took him to police officer. He thanked me. I was very happy. I rushed to my house and said to my parents what had happened. They were very proud of me. The next day I said it to my friends, they were very very much excited to hear it. From then everybody started calling me “LITTLE DETECTIVE”.
One day three friends got stuck in an empty house due to heavy rainfall. They were on their way to school. There was a flood on the road. The three friends were shivering in cold. They were hungry too. They wrote something in their diary. Then they spelt these words. They tore the paper and made paper aeroplane and sent out. It flew to someone’s hand. He opened the paper. He was suprised the most. He ran to their house and said “come out of the house as you are wearing waterproof shoes”. They came out one by one holding the man’s hand and thanked him.
India is a place that has a bounty of natural beauty as its possession since time immemorial. It has been a hot bed of tourism. It has been visited many a times by the global tourist all over the world. India is special destination and has occupied a central position in the minds of every visitor who back visit India.
But times have changed, political agitations, turmoil and natural calamities catastrophic have been common in every corner of India. It is not a dream land for tourist as it was before. Starting from Kashmir, it had witnessed horrifying flood last year. It is one of the favoured hunting grounds of the tourists because of the disputes that lie near this territory between the nations India and Pakistan. As the Paradise in Earth , as it is fondly called is no longer such and many even fear to go there.
Also another place that has witnessed the natural catastrophies in the recent past is the Uttarakhand. The Kedarnath flood still haunts the pilgrims of the Char Dham Yatra. This particular disaster took the lines of the several pilgrims and many of them were missing. No body knows what had happened to them. Another place is the Arunachal Pradesh, that is the victim of the Boru Movement As it borders India and China the region is also prone to several disputes between the nations.
Forests, lakes, rivers and mountains run across the India mainland. They are our natural beauties that is inheritant and we need to protect them. The central part of India – Madhyapradesh, Jharkhand with its rich forest and other biosphere reserves are a place infested by the terrorists. Andhra Pradesh because of the Telengana movement is also a dreaded pl ace to visit .
That is how the present day condition in India is no longer a dream land of visitors. The Government in order to fulfill its plan of “Incredible India” needs to crush this disturba nces. If only this is then India can be made a better place but us walk hand in hand in order to make India a better place to live.

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.
