Leisurely things with SAMINA #1

I am very excited to announce that I will be publishing a series of writing every week titled 'LEISURELY THINGS WITH SAMINA'. This is the first piece under this title. I hope you enjoyed it and please comment.

I was wondering if everyone is getting bored. I came up with the amazing idea of a simple and easy recipe to try when you are free. This is my mother's special recipe and each time my mom makes it, I irresistible get drawn towards it by its the mouth-watering aroma. and I assure you, you can't resist trying it yourself. No doubt it tasty but healthy as well.

1. Take one cup of chana dal (chickpea gram)and soak it for a few hours.
2 Then the pressure cooks it. (3-4 whistles on medium flame)
3. Mash the dal while stirring.
4. Take little oil in a pan, add grated onion, chilly,( ginger and garlic paste)which is optional. (low flame/medium flame)
5....

Writing Streak Week 1 Day 3

THE GREAT WARS AT HOME...
As you are aware that due to quarantine everyone has got time for their hobbies amidst their busy lives. And so my sister realized her potential talent of accusing blame on me for stealing her clothes. As mentioned in day 2, she is an expert at digging into my things. Today she found her clothes in my closet.
Sameera, 11years exclaimed(in fact shouted)."This was my cold shoulder top and how dare you steal it.
She was handcuffed and announces guilty. She was taken to Super Judge my mom.
Samina, 15 years, gave her sentence that borrowing stuff isn't called as stealing.
Before the judge could announce anything. Samina escaped and then began the wars. And my sister's specialty is unfolding my secrets in front of my mom when she is angry. (I know you all might visualize this scene if you have younger siblings.)
The best thing about fights is a guilty...

Writing Streak Week 1 Day 1

A very rare creature spotted in my kitchen

Samina15 years old spotted a very rare creature in the kitchen. Her eyes couldn't believe it. She exclaimed that after days her dad entered the kitchen to exhibit his culinary skills. Well, sources claim that results weren't very appealing. But never the less; Something is better than nothing!
Sister Sameera11 years old, added it is a rare phenomenon similar to the sun rising from the west."I was given the fortunate opportunity to taste. The rest is history."
Mom was astonished and exclaims that this day will be remembered in house history.

Writing Streak Week 1 Day 2

Deep remains found

My mom and sister are a part of the archeological department in my house. I mean that they love to clean and excavate deep remains of my old books, mark sheet, my so-called secret diaries, and all my remains. Recently they were on an adventure on searching for things in my box when they found old remains of some board games that my sister and I used. (Not played because we made our own game out of it. Like chess was played like War.
Sameera, 11years old, little mastermind behind the mission exclaims that it is her favorite job digging deep into my things. This board game signifies her achievement.
Samina, 15years, was astonished and happy that her sister will finally learn to play chess. She was also surprised how her childhood was without smartphones and when she used to spend a lot of time with her family playing board games, musical chairs, and whatnot....

Grandma,


The foremost thing that flashes over my mind regarding my grandma is her zealous and appealing nature. She has always nurtured my mind with goodness and inculcated the morals in us. Superficially she is of the average height of about 5 feet. Having an oval face within sunken eyes, cycloidal arched eyebrows, thick brown lashes. Her brown straightened hair, curly at the ends is beautiful enough to make anyone envy. Her forehead and whistle jawline reflects the age. The sallow colored skin adorned with pearly pink lips is a mesmerizing beauty. Talking about her smile, a glance of it recuperates all my problems. She is tender-hearted and enthusiastic. Not to forget she is equally talented with knowledge of multi-cuisine recipes. The most cherished is the Mango pickle. The irresistible aroma of it will definitely pull you towards it. Her unconditional love and sincere prayers are a treasure for a lifetime.

Scary Night

It was a strange night and there seemed to be a chill in the air. Not even a leaf moved. This silence endowed a fear in me. I quickened my steps as I hurried home. I wished now that I hadn't hung around with my friends. The road was deserted and the darkness of December immersed me into it. Suddenly, I heard the sound of spooky anklets nearing me and a large shadow following me. My body trembled and a shiver went down my spine. My heart raced and so my footsteps. My body trembled and goosebumps appeared on my skin as I heard the sound approaching me. Unexpectedly the weather become unmerciful. And as the thunder raged the sky even my heart shuddered. I was in a state of tremendous fear, despite this I turned back. I was astonished and my eyes laid wide open. I realized that it was a cow with anklets following me ! I was...

Op-Ed Competition 2020

​THE PERCEPTION OF INDIAN EDUCATION IN PRESENT TIMES


   India is a country where people believe that Goddess Saraswati blesses us with the prosperity of knowledge (https://www.learnreligions.com/saraswati-goddess-of-knowledge-and-arts-1770370). Ancient Indian Vedas mention her dignity in abundance. It prevents us from going astray. As I ponder over the above fact, I recollect that two of my classmates were having a conversation. “Using this guide and reference book you will pass!” The other added to this “Tuition is the best way to score marks.”   What traumatized me was the discussion about marks or grades rather than knowledge. This left a grave influence on my heart and mind.   This is not just my voice but that of millions of other students who study in adversity. Statistics also point out or highlight the plight of the students.

   According to a survey conducted in India, 2/3 rds implying 66% of the students were under academic pressure to score good grades, nearly every day, 6 students go to...

DOES COMPETITION ENHANCE LEARNING PROCESS?#Writersperception

 
      Visualizing a scene outside the school office where parents and small kids are waiting in serpentine ques for admission to kindergarten. “ Give the answers correctly, don’t make any mistake, you have to come first”, are the worlds buzzing around in the air. Oh, God! Poor kids facing so much stress with the start of their lives.
     Competition, competition, and competition. So, in my opinion, Competition doesn’t enhance the learning process. It is simply a taboo that has embedded its roots in our society.
     Competition and learning are like the North and south pole of a magnet, which represents education. Both are a part of education but their nature varies. The competition attracts competitors who learn to compete with others in a rat race. Whereas Learning attracts students who wished to grasp the concepts and understand the subject.
       To achieve the ambitious goals of a competition, students find a resort in question papers, guides, coaching,...

Republishing my first piece, Annapurna gram of India: visualizing towards sustainability.

Hey writer, 
This was my first piece on this platform. I am republishing it for peer review.. 
​Annapurna gram of India: visualizing towards sustainability – 

Introduction:
         Imagining “an Annapurna gram” ripped in a green saree of agriculture, flawlessly flowing flashes my mind as I walk down the countryside in my country. Have you ever wondered who is responsible for filling your empty stomach, does the producer of that food sleep with an unfilled stomach? Envisaging a village where none shall be growling of hunger and starvation, where contentment will rule the lives.
What does sustainability mean? As I have known it is described as “Sustainable development is the development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” defined by World Commission on Environment and Development 1987.
On similar grounds, what does a sustainable village imply? It is a concept which found its roots in India...

Amalgam of Yoga and Karate

Hey readers, This piece is written in view of the INTERNATIONAL YOGA DAY on 21st June.
Introduction:
The advent of advanced telecommunications technology like mobile, internet which on one hand has several advantages; on the other hand, it has made us lead a sedentary life, unlike our grandparents. Crouching potato like figures can be achieved effortlessly. The enlightenment regarding our health has taken a backseat in the present times. One such practice which originated and spread its tentacles in the world is “Yoga”. It is a form of exercise which unites our soul and body as indicated by the Sanskrit root “yuj”. Rightly quoted as “Yoga is the dance of every cell with the music of every breath that creates inner serenity and harmony”.
Knowledge of Subject Matter:
My inquisitiveness persuaded me to acquire more about this institution of health. While scanning through the pages I came to know that very comprehensive...

Album Review Competition 2019

Gal Karke and Tarse Ye Naina REVIEW

     Indian music has been my favorite and has set a benchmark in world, as well. 
Vast India is rich in traditional as well as folk songs. The best part of a good music is it should pour through every part of your body. Rather than language you should be able to understand it. That is music for me. Proper music is expressing emotions, thoughts, ideas in such a way that it is conveying the message to the listeners. 
   Desi music factory is a synonym of hit machine, has come up again with a earworm song GAL KARKE. The melody is a perfect punch of lyrics and heart-warming music.
The story of song revolves around school days. This brings nostalgia to the listeners. Starring SIDDHARTH NIGAM And ANUSHKA SEN, a perfect pair, they have bought music to live by their applauding performance. It emphasize on last golden days of school. Youngsters can cherish their...
