Soumil’s diary

My holidays

Before my Block test begun, I was nervous about it. But on Wednesday 22.2.17, t got completed. I was thinking what to during holidays. With my friends we thought of C.I.D which meant for Children’s Independence Day. It signifies the freedom after our hard and tiring studies. We had to sit for our exams form 12 o’clock to 4.30 pm. But now we have the freedom to do anything we want. As i said earlier I decided my holiday routines. I wish we all are going to have a great holiday. Today, I am ending my diary here as I have run out of words. See you later on my next diary.

Date: 09-Dec-2016. Today I had lots of fun in my school. I and my friend invented a game called “Sebastian”. In this game everyone has to run around like hide and seek. Here the seeker has to catch one of the hiders and say “Sebastian” and add a color to it. Today the seeker caught me and said “Sebastian RED”. So i had to stand like a tortoise. Then one of my friends jumped over me and freed me. I also forgot to tell you that the hiders had to free the caught-ones by jumping over them or crawling under them according to the shape. I will end my dairy here. Hope you had a nice day.

bandh_dairyDate: 28-Nov-2016. Today (Monday) was an usual day. We had ‘Bandh’. Everything was to be closed but our school was still open. Our school bus came late. As I boarded the bus I found it almost empty. After reaching school, I rushed to my classroom. I could count only thirty-five were present out of sixty-three. We were sitting scattered around the classroom. I failed to understand why so many people were absent, when everything was perfectly normal. I returned home feeling happy and confused. I hope everyday is ‘Bandh’ so that I can sit in the classroom with more space.

firstdairyDate: 26-Nov-2016. It is my first diary i have ever written and i will tell you about one of my experiences. On Friday 25-11-16, I got up at 6 am. I had a trial organized by my school for a running competition in a stadium. I quickly got dressed in my uniform and set off at 7 am. When we reached my school it was 7:30 am. The school gate was not yet open. It had to opened at 8 am. As time ran by my friends came in.When it was finally 8 am the school gate was open. We all rushed inside. We were taken to our classrooms. After some time we boarded our school bus and set of for the stadium where the trials would be held. When we reached there we went inside. There were many shops such as Ice cream shops inside the stadium. We sat down on the grass. We were asked to divide ourselves into groups based on our houses and also divide among boys and girls. When it was the turn of Asutosh Mukherjee house, I walked at the starting point. We were six to compete. As the whistle blew, I ran off with full speed. When I reached the finishing line, i realized that I was the first to reach there. My teacher noted down my name as I had been selected for the finals. They told me that they would inform when the finals would be held and at what time. Then we were taken back to our school and again to our classes. We were dismissed at 11 a.m. It was one of my happiest moment in my life.

There is also a smell is often experienced by the visitors. All the incidents are reported after the sun set. This fort is considered to be haunted, and no one is allowed to remain inside the fort at night. There is a notice board put up by the Archaeological Survey of India at the entrance that says visitors are not allowed during nights after the sun is set.

The fort has become one of the major tourist attraction and it does not have electricity. Surrounded by majestic hills of Aravali, the fort acts as a night shelter for different species of animals from the neighboring forests. Many ghost busters explain the sounds created by these wild animals in the fort as scary and evident enough to deny the occurrence of some paranormal activities. There is a Hanuman temple inside the fort just next to the main gate and several other temples that contradict with the idea that it houses supernatural powers.

Bhangarh is one of the spookiest places you could possibly imagine, not to mention, one of the most haunted places in India. Situated near a popular forest, this town is now attracting visitors from all over the country and also from abroad.bhangarh-fort-kidsunfold
It should be noted that if you decide to visit this place after the sun has gone down, you won’t be allowed to. In fact, there is a strict warning about how dangerous this place becomes after sunset.
The story which this town is well-known for the tale of a magician who fell in love with the local princess of the area even though their match was impossible. Being quite the master of dark magic, he decided to cast a spell on her to make her surrender to him. However, the princess learned of his plans and found a way to kill him. Before his death, however, the magician cast a dark spell on the palace which caused its doom.
Despite Bhangarh Fort being regarded as one of the most horror haunted places in India has been officially promoted as a tourist destination. However, once the night falls and the darkness takes over, this place becomes deserted, leaving it prey to the supposed ‘supernatural’.

Sealand- A country that has place for only ten people

SealandDuring the Second World War the British government built several Fortress islands in the North Sea to defend its coasts from German invaders. These forts were built illegally in international waters.The famous royal fort Roughs Tower situated slightly north of the Thames river and approximately at a distance of 7 nautical miles from the coast. That was more a distance of 3 mile range of territorial distance as per the then applicable law which in turn made it situated in the international waters of the North sea.
In the early 1950 the fort was abandoned to comply with the international law and then after in 1966 Roy Bates a former infantry major in the first battalion Royal Fusiliers decided to take over the fortress.

Roy and Joan Bates2nd September 1967, Roy declared The Principality of Sealand raising a newly designed flag and titled his wife “Princess Joan” along with his son Michael (14), daughter Penelope (16) and several friends and followers.

Sealand MapSealand is not recognized by the other countries and In 1987, the UK extended its territorial waters from three to twelve miles. Sealand now sits inside waters that Britain claims as its territory though Michael Bates claims himself to be the prince of Sealand and they have their own stamps, national anthem, money, flag, and more things just like a real country.

Sealand is also granting titles like Lord, Lady, Baron or Baroness. You need to pay as low as £29.99 to become a Lord or Lady and also paying £19.99 can own a piece of Sealand territory. To own the title Count or Countess, one has to pay only £199.99.

Charity football match was also sometimes organised to raise money for good cause. One of such occasions when Fulham All Stars V Sealand All Stars match was organised.
