History is no more a Mystery !


When we all hear History.... we think that i'm gonna need a pillow. I'm gonna sleep!

But History isn't always all that boring. Except the dates.....

Here are some ways to enjoy history:)

1. Think of it as a story

This is probably the most common sentence you'll hear for history, but I'm not joking. Imagine everything as story time going on in front of you. Maybe you are at the scene ! Its like you're in front of Akbar, or Aurangzeb while he was dividing his kingdom among his sons when you see that he's not going to to give you any, and suddenly you realize that its not actually happening and the brothers would kill each other for the throne anyway.

I am so glad I'm not a Mughal kid in line. 

2.Write everything down.

I know taking notes during classes pains the hand but saves you from an awful lot of reading later.
While the textbooks have long boring text, you can write the points in keywords in your own history notepad and keep reading them. They come in handy during the exams.


Ask your teacher if you don't know or aren't sure for something.
Nobody will clear your doubts if they don't know. 

As for me, I have a great teacher ......:)

4. Go on You tube

You tube is definitely the best source to have a lot of practice and what's even better... It's fun! You tube has a thousand videos on every chapter. So go make the boring chapters interesting.

My exams just finished. I am waiting eagerly for the results. 

Let's see !

The moon, it's charming and beautiful. The moon is the natural satellite of Earth. Today the super moon was rising and I was looking at it with awe and wonder from my balcony. The craters must be really huge if the are visible to us on Earth. 

The moon 
Its lovely shining light reached me as I was standing there enjoying the cool breeze. 

I took a photo of the moon with my Baba's Camera and Lens and I think it turned out quite good. What do you think?
I'll surely go to the moon one day. 🌙

Doodling an Owl - Save Owls !

Doodling an Owl 

Owls are third on my list of favorite birds. And what reason do I have not to like them ? They're majestic, beautiful and quiet.Well, silence is golden, and it helps these wonderful birds catch their prey, which usually consists of mice and small mammals. Unfortunately, the numbers of this species has seen a rapid decline in the recent times. During festivals owls are caught and offered as a sacrifice to the gods, mainly Lakshmidevi during Diwali. I don't know what makes these people think that catching an innocent owl and offering it to gods will appease their wrath. Well, festivals aren't needed to kill them.Village folks catch owls and kill them as a bad omen, Poachers for their beaks,talons and feathers and other evil people for their eyes and organs to perform unnecessary rituals and trade in the name of black magic. I wish these people would stop doing it. Owls help us keep our farms and fields rat-free and they keep the ecosystem well balanced. So whenever you see an Owl, try to save it and remember my article .

Save Owls !

My Green Ganesha


Its the festival we all wait for, Its Ganesh chaturthi! This time( well actually every time:)) I have made a Ganesh which is ecofriendly with a new idea! 

I put Chiku / Sapota seed inside the Ganesha in a clay pot. 
Is'nt this a unique idea to plant trees and stop pollution ? Instead of immersing Ganesh in a bucket full of water like I do every year this time I will pour water on it and the chiku/sapota tree will come out.  

Its easy to make and Ill tell you some facts about Lord Ganesha -Ganesha, also known as Ganapati, Vinayaka and Binayak, is one of the best-known and most worshiped deities in the Hindu religion
-He is given the title of Adipujya, which means the god who is worshipped  first or before all other gods.
-Ganesha has the head of an elephant and the body of a healthy plump boy.
-Ganesha is the favourite god of the people of India and has many names-  

Ganesha, Ganpati, Vinayak, bappa, ekadanataya etc.

    (The best part for me is the festival holiday !) ;)

so enjoy your ganesh chaturthi !

Nature  Scenery 

Hey Everybody ! This is my oil pastel drawing of an imaginary place I cooked up.

                     Enjoy the greenery that I have brought for you !

Hey everybody ! 
Here is a drawing that I made of a Common Kingfisher.I hope you like it !

Here is some info on the bird :

  • Kingfishers eat fish and crayfish. They live in burrows on the edges of streams, lakes and ponds
  • To catch fish, they lazily fly over the water, swooping down to spear a fish with their sharp beaks. Sometimes they perch in a branch near a river and dive when they see a fish.
  • Female kingfishers are more colorful than males.
  • Kingfishers make dry, loud screeching sounds.
  • In the winter, kingfishers migrate to areas where the water is not frozen.
  • A pair of kingfishers work together to build burrows along the edges of streams or rivers.
  • A borrow might be 3 to 8 feet long.
                                                                                                                                                                         ~CHINMAYEE ☺

Yesterday when i was cycling I found a dehydrated, unconscious baby squirrel and so i brought it home.I kept it in a small shoe box along with a soft dry piece of cloth and water. He was so tired then that he couldn't even drink water by himself. I gave him water and milk by a syringe and now he is sleeping soundly. Now he recognises me and wont leave my hand !!

The Tree Frog

The tree frog is a magnificent species of frog that spends its major part of life in trees, thus its name.It is native to the eastern United States. 

Its biological name is Agalychnis callidryas.  These amphibians are arboreal, meaning they spend a lot of time hiding in the trees. The frogs live in tropical lowlands in Central America and northern South America, and though one might think that its bright red eyes and blue and yellow markings would put the amphibian in danger, the crafty frog actually uses its flashy colors to its advantage.They have no problem in scaling trees and leaves, and look Beautiful. 

I have made a drawing of a tree frog. I hope you like it.

Living In Space 

Living in space is very hard. There's no gravity, so doing everyday things isn't a piece of cake.
Here are some ways astronauts live and work in space aboard a space station. 

1. Cleanliness-

        Astronauts need to stay clean in space as well as you need to on earth.They have toothpastes, toothbrushes, combs, brushes and shavers. All these are to be found in a personal hygiene kit.Astronauts use different and special kinds of soap and shampoo. After washing they wipe up with a towel.Image result for an astronaut in the toilet

2. Neat and Tidy-
       In space, astronauts live in a very small space. They have to keep their area clean in space just like we do on Earth. They use wet wipes to clean things. There are four bins on the space shuttle. The first three bins are for wet trash and the last fourth one is for dry waste. They also use a vacuum cleaner. 

3. Beauty Sleep-
      Well, don't suppose that astronauts float around in sleep !
They hop into a sleeping bag and then strap themselves in it. Otherwise they would be crashing into things all night!

It is really hard to live in space, still astronauts are trained for it and they do it to find out more about the mind boggling, beautiful space.

Here are some of the tasty vegetables and fruits that I have made. 

  • Bananas are the fruit produced by various banana plants.
  • When ripe they are usually long and curved with a soft inside covered by a yellow skin (peel).
  • Bananas can be found in other colors, including red.
  • Banana plants are not trees, they are a type of herb.
  • Humans have grown bananas for thousands of years.
  • Most species of banana plant originated in Southeast Asia.
  • Bananas grow in large, hanging bunches.
  • A row of bananas is sometimes called a 'hand', while a single banana is called a 'finger'.
  • India is the leading  producer of bananas.

The Cutie Banana !

Lady Finger ( Okra )

  • Lady's fingers is popularly known as Bhindi in India and 'Okra' in US.
  • Lady's finger is a rich source of many nutrients, including fiber, vitamin B6 and folic acid. 
  • Okra is very much effective in controlling Blood sugar level. 
  • It is also used as a home remedy for cold. It's another use is in controlling diabetes.

  • The lemon is native to Asia, around Northeast India, North Burma, and China.
  • Lemons are believed to be a hybrid between a sour orange and a citron.
  • The lemon is an evergreen tree, it blooms (a white flower) and produces fruit all year round. Each tree can produce between 500 and 600 pounds (225 kg and 270 kg) of lemons a year.
  • Christopher Columbus took lemon seeds with him to the America's in 1493, introducing the fruit there.
  • Lemons have a sour taste to them, this is due to the fact that lemon juice contains about 5-6% citric acid.
Chottu Lemon!


  • Broccoli originated in Italy off of the Mediterranean. It has been eaten there since the time of the ancient Romans in the 6th Century BC.  
  • Broccoli is a member of the cabbage family, making it a cruciferous vegetable. It's name is derived from the Italian word broccolo, meaning the flowering top of a cabbage.
  •  Want something high in Vitamin C but don't feel like eating fruit? Broccoli is very high in Vitamin C, making 1 cup of chopped broccoli the Vitamin C equivalent of an orange. One cup of raw chopped broccoli will give you your entire daily needed intake.
Sporty Broccoli!

.Girl - Pencil Shading

This is my shading on a girl with pencils. I like pencil shading.....
    The question is not to be or to be,
It is that do you like my drawing ? ☺

She jumped so high !
she performed a feat !
She uses not her lipstick,
But red juicy beet.
She loves to play badminton,
She then still votes for Hillary Clinton.
She plays with her pet bear,
Still from mice she does fear.
In her hair she has lice,
Even after washing twice and thrice !
She has a lot of money,
And eating cheese she thinks is funny!
She buys clothes in April and May,
I do hope you meet her one day !

Here is my funny poem I just wrote, hope you like it !

Saturday, November 12, 2016


Dr. Salim Ali, 
one of the greatest ornithologists and naturalists of all time, is also known as the “birdman of India”. He was one of the very first scientists to carry out systematic bird surveys in India and abroad. His research work is considered highly influential in the development of ornithology.
Today is Dr. Salim Alis Birth Anniversary I'm dedicating my Poem to him.

Save Me!

A little voice said,
Don't let me go on my deathbed.
Who am I ? You might ask,

I am a little bird
Spare me!
Don't you hunt me down,
Don't make me fall to the ground.

I want to fly,
High up in the sky

I eat the little things you humans call bugs,
I am not so lucky,
liked poodles and pugs.

I may be dull in colour, or a magnificent blue,
But my family and ancestors,
they all flew.

Our food chain and ecosystem,
all its linked,

Save me my friends!
Don't let me go extinct.

Groaaaaar !!!!

The jungle is full of surprises and mysteries, preys and predators, different varieties of strange and mind boggling creatures. One of them is the majestic and proud cat that we know as the  Tiger. It has stripes, which are known to be as unique as our fingerprints. The tiger has reddish orange fur and is in the species Panthera. It is the Panthera Tigris. They hunt alone and generally at night. A tiger is known to stalk prey already 20 times before killing it. Tigers are good swimmers too. There are atleast five species of tigers.
In India there are royal bengal tigers in the Sunderbans. Now sadly there are less tigers left in the world due too poaching and hunting. We can save the tigers if we don't buy the medicine made out of them. Almost every part of a tiger can be used for something, even the whiskers! So if we don't buy the product of tigers the Tiger market won't flourish and nobody will buy it. Then if no one will buy then the hunters won't have any profit and will stop killing the cat. One more reason that can be a reason for extinction of this species is deforestation and loss of natural habitat . We can stop deforestation by not cutting trees, not buying things made by wood and trying to plant more and more trees as possible. Saving tigers will be a lot good ! 
So friends,
                        Save  Tigers!

Firecrackers....! I shouted as I saw a big polythene bag in my uncle's hand. I was excited and the only thought I could think of next was to explode them. 
But my next thought was the one that I pondered over for at least half an hour and it could well stop the first one. It was about pollution.

Firecrackers pollute but the big trouble is that they scare dogs and cats so much they yelp and pant for help and hide away. Firecrackers have an adverse effect on the environment too. Crackers can cause land pollution, because of the paper that is left after exploding. They cause air pollution too, as they release a large amount of CO², better known as carbon dioxide and sulphur, lead etc etc.

On Diwali we light up lamps,also known as Akashdiva or Akashkandil. Diwali is celebrated on Amavasya ( new moon day). It is known as the darkest night of the year. I love lighting diyas and electric lightings to beatify my balcony. May all have a happy Diwali !!!

Be the change you wish to see

Gandhiji is the world's face for peace. He had introduced the weapon of truth -Satyagraha. Gandhiji believed in non violence and the language of love, peace, truth and harmony.

He inspired millions and billions of people in India and beyond far in foreign countries. Gandhiji's message was spread worldwide everywhere. 
One of my favourites quotes  - " Be the change you wish to see''

To the winds I want to say 

Free me of worldly bonds 

with cooling touch so fond,

Free me of my worldly stress

then sadness will be so less.

To the sun I want to say

Give me warmth of hope 

So with problems can I cope

Your great power let me find

So from no one I lack behind.

To the clouds I want to say 

Wash me of my troubles

So my happiness doubles

With the goodness of your rain,

All sorrows go down the drain.

So even if I miss my train,

and even if it doesn't rain,

I will have nature's kindness

the cure for world's madness.

Village life

Medium : Sketch pen and Wax crayons.

Village life is very simple life. Not like our city which has polluted air. Go to a village and you will see that it is green everywhere. Breathe in the fresh air. Swim in the river. Eat as much you want and rest under the cooling shade of the tree.
Really , village life is beautiful and relaxing.
