Near and Far

Travelling is a relief from the clutches of coronavirus and everyone craves to travel. I will mention places near and far from my home in the heart of India. I like visiting Darjeeling while looking at its tall mountains. Last time the hotel my father booked had an excellent view of the majestic Kanchenjungha. The great Himalayan zoo in Darjeeling is an attraction especially due to the Red panda exhibits. Two years back I went to Singapore with my family. I admired how clean the city was and how well behaved the citizens were. The children in Singapore are taught about the basic civic sense and learn to love their country from their kindergarten days. The great underwater aquarium and the Universal studios are the major attractions of the country. I will never forget the time we spent with a live dolphin. Her name was Sola.  

Jammu and Kashmir is another favourite of mine. It’s because it’s in the north and gets snow durings winters. I have read that Kashmir is known as heaven on the earth. Someday I wish to visit the place. Few days back, I had a long drive through a village to see some greenery. I enjoyed the drive with my father. It was raining and the nearby ponds were full up to the brim. A group of children were enjoying football in the rain. They made me feel jealous. I wish I could have fun like them.  And lastly I would wish you all happy travels as travelling is fun. has collaborated with ‘Word Munchers’, a creative writing platform that trains and encourages kids and youngsters to hone their creative writing skills. will be publishing two short essays by students of ‘Word Munchers’ every week.
