9/11 2001

September15

9/11 terrorist attacks shocked the world and changed the United States forever.

2001 was the year when my parents got married (October). My father was working in the kingdom of  Saudi Arabia and my mom was in India, New Delhi. When this painful incident happened, my mom was in a shopping mall. She immediately rushed to home, because she was scared. There was a live telecast on TV of this disaster. My mom watched the whole incident  with her family. Nobody was moving from the television. As per my mom, this still horrifies her. My mom heard about the jetliners crashing into the World Trade Center. By the time she reached home the other had struck the other tower. Children were crying for their parents, brothers and sisters.

My mother’s aunty lives in California. She was going to San Diego and had already boarded the plane. But she was asked to leave the plane and all passengers were off boarded. There was a tight security and all the flights in the U.S.A were canceled. My maternal grandfather’s family lives in the US (In different cities). He was busy calling everyone but there were no connections available at that time. Nobody had any meals on that day. Every body was praying.

My mom called my dad and informed him about the horrific incident. Vaansh Rajesh Twin Towers

Music

June13

Music plays a big role in my life. I listen to music when I am playing or having a party with my family and friends. I get more energetic when I listen to pop music when I am doing sports. I also listen to music while I am skateboarding or ice-skating. I like both types of music pop and calm. But I prefer pop music because it is more energetic.

My favorite calm music is ”every night in my dreams” because it is very relaxing and meaningful. The song reminds me of the movie ”Titanic” because in the movie there was a boy and a girl who loved each other a lot. Then when the tragic happened, the boy dies so I think this song is sang by the girl.

My mom loves calm music and my dad loves pop music but they both have excellent reasons to argue about what is better.

What is your favorite type of music?

My Favorite Seasons

June13

My favorite seasons are summer and winter. I like summer a little more than winter because  in summer you don’t have to be dressed in 4 layers and you can do whatever you want to do. Another reason why I like summer a lot is that you have a less chance of getting sick or getting a very bad cold. You can also do cycling, swimming, running and other fun stuff. But in winter you don’t have much of a choice. One thing I like most about summer is the sun. I love to play cricket and soccer outside when it’s a sunny day. In summer, you can  do parties outside the house, although in winter, you can only do parties inside the house.

In winter, my favorite part is to play in the snow. If you fall down in winter, you won’t get much hurt( only if you land on soft snow, not on ice). I also like to go sledding, snowboarding and skiing in the winter. Another reason why I like winter is we get to make snow forts and climb snow mountains which have formed over a snow storm.Rajesh Summer

I`m Bored.

May22

The thing that bores me are mostly stuff with long explanations. I mostly get bored during history and geography class because we have to memorize a lot of stuff for even a short test. I sometimes get bored during French because probably I don`t speak much French or we get more homework in French than we get in English.  Ridiculous jokes bore me which are not at all funny. I am thankful that my friends don`t bore me or other member of my family bore me. When I am bored, I mostly read a book or I go out to play soccer. Soccer cools me down. Reading gets me interested so my brain could still work and think about something.

 

What bores you?

My Dream Home

May21

RAJESH

If I would win a contest to build my dream home, I would make my home very big with lots of pools which look like lakes and many rooms. I would make the house look like a palace except I am not going to make in the shape of a square. I am going to make it any random shape. Around my home, I want a lake which freezes in the winter so I could Ice-Skate in the winter since it is my favorite winter sport( along with snowboarding ). In the middle of the home, I want it to be open  because I want it to put a soccer field since soccer is my favorite sport. I want platforms on my pool so I could walk to where I want to jump in. My pool should have a ramp as High as 20 feet and 2 small ramp as high as 5 feet and 10 feet.

The entrance of the house should be very big with lions carved in gold on the handles. I do not want stone walls around my house because  it will destroy the beauty of it. As I said before, I want my home to have many rooms. Each room should have enough room to fit a lot of people inside.

My Greatest Fear

May12

VaanshIf I were trapped inside a room with my greatest fear, which would be a clown with snakes all around me. I am scared of clowns because you never know when they can pull a prank on you. I am scared of clowns since I was a little baby. I used to get scared of their make-up but later on  I understood that is a fake. I am scared of snakes because they are slimy and I hate slimy stuff. I have also learned that when a snake bites you, it gives out poison and you cold die if you don`t take it out on time. For me snakes and clowns are the worst combination. They both have nothing in common but are sometimes very scary. If I had been in a room with a snake and a clown, I would probably break the wall even though I am not super strong or I would  run as fast as I could screaming for help.

The Skills I Would Like To Master Are……..

May9

Rajesh SwimmingActually, I want to master many skills such as skateboarding, diving and swimming.  But the skill I want to master the most is  martial arts. I love martial arts because I find it very fun to practice how to fight and learn how to defend yourself. In many movies and in real life, I see that the person who doesn’t  know how to fight is often the person who loses the battle and I do not want that happening to me. I practice karate and a little bit of just normal fighting everyday.

Swimming , diving and surfing is one of my most favorite summer sport. Swimming is my favorite water sport and it is very good for your body. My parents want me to be very good at swimming because they want me to build up my stamina . They want me to build up my stamina because I do things very fast, but after a few minutes I run out of breath and I have to stop. I started swimming when I was 5 and a half year old, but I had to take swimming lessons again because I had stopped practicing and was getting less good at it.

Snowboarding and Ice skating are my favorite winter sport because they are very fun and athletic. Rajesh snowboardingAlso because you can do many different types of tricks.

Which Skill would you like to master?

For Beatrice: “When We Were Together, I felt Breathless. Now you are.“

May8

This is written by Lemony Snicket in The Series Of  Unfortunate Events book number seven. Lemony Snicket loved Beatrice a lot. They were about to marry, but then Beatrice broke the marriage and married Bernard Baudelaire. She had 3 children named Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire. these 3 children are also the main characters in The Series Of Unfortunate Events. I think this sentence means that when Lemony Snicket and Beatrice were together, he loved her a lot. But then Beatrice died, so now she really is breathless. From now on, in every book which Lemony writes is for Beatrice.Rajesh The Vile Village

Hit The Ball!

February18

Cricket 1 Vaansh Rajesh

I love playing Cricket.  When I was in India last year during my summer holidays, I used to play Cricket with my cousins.  Whenever, I get time, and if it is sunny outside, I play Cricket with my family and friends in my backyard.

Cricket is a very popular game in the world.  It started in England (U.K.) during the 17th century, and then other countries in the world started playing   it professionally.

Cricket is played with a bat and ball between two teams and there are 11 members in each team.  This game is played on an oval field.  There is an Umpire in Cricket, who has the right to judge the game.  He also makes decisions in the game.  An Umpire can declare a batsman out.  He also announce  the  end of an over (there are 7 balls in one over).

Cricket World Cup take place in every 4 years.  Next Cricket World Cup will be in 2015.  The countries who play Cricket  the most are : England, India, Australia, West Indies, New Zealand, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe.

To play Cricket, you must have to wear shin pads, helmet and strong grip gloves.  We also need 2 sets of stumps.

Cricket is my favorite sport. What is your favorite sport?

Taj Mahal

February18

Taj Mahal Vaansh RajehLast year, during my trip to India, I visited the Taj Mahal with my family.  I was amazed to see the beauty of Taj Mahal, and could not believe that hundreds of years before people could make such a beautiful structure made out of  marble.  We had a lot of fun there and had boat rides.  We ate delicious Mughlai food at the famous Taj Mahal Hotel.

It was my most memorable trip and I feel great to see such an old structure made of marble.

The Taj Mahal  is one of the seven wonders of the world.  It was built by Mughal Emperor  Shah Jahan, in memory of  his wife and queen  Mumtaj Mahal.  The Taj Mahal is built entirely of white marble.  It’s height is 73 m (240 ft).  It was built in 21 years (1632 – 1653).  It is the grave of Mumtaz Mahal at the lower chamber of Taj Mahal.  The grave of Shah Jahan was added to it later.  It is believed that the souls of  Shah Jahan and  his wife  Mumtaj  Mahal visit the Taj Mahal on a full moon night.

Shah Jahan was sick during his last days and he used to see the Taj Mahal from his Palace.

The Taj Mahal is visited by billions of people from all over the world.  The Taj Mahal  is actually a palace with a big dome on the top and is surrounded by four Vaansh Rajesh Taj Mahal Rivertowers.  It has beautiful colored glass windows.  The Taj glow in the full moon light.  It also looks very beautiful during sunrise and sunset.  The Yamuna river flows right beside it, which increases the beauty of  Taj  Mahal.  There are also boat rides.    There is a large garden which has four pools divided  it at the centre.

Would you like to visit the Taj Mahal? If so, please don’t hesitate to comment below.
