Why this blog?

The nascent and fresh minds of students are so creatively inclined that they have the ability to bring into being a universe of their own. They are little tyros who would, with time, unfold into verves, momentum or sensations of various creative dimensions. A chalk sculptor, a clay artist, an amateur painter of Madhubani, Warli, a dabbler of still life, a budding poet, a tenderfoot writer or a fledgling lyricist – one gets all varieties of creatively-aligned students covered in a seemingly dilettantish peel. We at Shishukunj aspire to provide a humble platform to all such potentials to smatter around and mature into the perfection that they are seeking to epitomize or become! This blog is thus an endeavor that would allow all Shishyans to just play around with their latent artistic caliber and enjoy the bliss of a “BRAVO” from known and unknown quarters.

Life Journey – From Dawn to Dusk - 2

Human life is a journey that can be compared to a day from dusk to dawn. Elaborate with reference to ‘The Seven Ages’ by William Shakespeare.

Harsh Khurana, Class IX F

When the sun gives out its sunrays at dawn, it tells us that we have come in this world for a reason, with a motive. Just after dawn, all the birds come out of their nests and fly in the sky: carefree and enjoying themselves just like a small child when he plays with his friends in the neighbourhood. After some time, when the sun completely arises and is at its peak, when the birds go in search for food for them and their young ones just like a grownup who has various responsibilities for him and his beloved ones.
When the sun is going to set, all the birds come back to their nests, exhausted and satisfied with whatever they could get just like an old man who has hustled hard in life and has earned respect and various achievements in life. He is although tired, yet satisfied and now it’s his time to rest and enjoy until the night prevails and his death arrives.

Harveer Chawla, Class IX F

The poet says that all the world is a stage where man shows his beautiful journey of life. Just as the day has various stages, man has seven ages in his life. He is born with the dawn, early rays of sunlight, highlighting him into the world. Then comes the morning, when he is an infant, holding a large finger with his little ones. Learning to speak and stand, walk and fall, enter into deep thinking, sharp rays of noon showing his agitation and power. The rays also highlight a new height and hair and he becomes an adult in the evening, calm and steady. The day entering into dusk, making him an old man, all mature and experienced and the purpose of his being on ground fulfilled. With night coming, darkness prevails over man and he sleeps to wake up to another world.

Yashoneel Shukla, Class IX F

The journey of a man commences with the Golden Era of a person’s life which is his childhood just like a day which begins with an early fresh morning. As the journey continues, the person reaches the stage of his youth where he is at the peak of his youth and becomes arrogant and sometimes insensible, just like the scorching sun at noon. Between noon and the evening, the sun creates a warm and soft environment and comes to peace. The person at this stage reaches his adulthood and at the time of dusk, his old age takes over the reins of his life and the Golden age of the person returns along with the old age. At the end of the day, darkness starts to prevail, which is similar to death.
