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.

Why Not Praise the Thunder?

Maria Malik, Class IX G

I was happy, lazy staring at the window pane;
What I saw was thunder, lightning accompanied by heavy rain.
I never knew if paper boats could be caparisoned that way;
Dark creepy thoughts entered with a beam of golden ray

Colours of saffron, golden and yellow had disappeared that day;
Blue, black and grey had given way to dismay.
You could even take the wild thunder as a radio track;
Or maybe a ghostly sound, haunting and black.

My teeth were chattering, my lips rosy pink;
How can anyone hate these pretty puddles all the way, I think.
I pray to God to never let their paper boats sink;
To see them jolly, merry and happy after every blink.

Heavy rainfall can be equally bewildering;
Whatever it be cats, dogs or any human being.
The birds are spotted looking for shelter in this heavy storm;
I wish I could bring them in my blanket to keep them cozy and warm.

Am I the only one who enjoys every form of nature;
In this fake world of materialism created by every creature?
I hope to find someone who thinks the same as me:

Not cursing the weather but being thunder thirsty!
