Annual Day at DPS Riyadh


There was a red carpet on the floor. There were girls on 1 side and the boys on the other. Everyone started clapping as Kabir Bedi walked on it……

It was annual day in our school yesterday. Kabir Bedi was the chief guest. Me, Safana, Mizna and some other boys and girls were standing and watching him go. We all were really stunned to see him.

Safana and Mizna were my other friends who too had won the scholar badge and so I was glad that I had a few friends with me.

Our school had built another stage outside the auditorium so Kabir Bedi saw the programs nicely.

The programs were nice with dances and plays. There was Spanish dance, Chinese Dance, African Dance, Puppet dance and many others. Puppet dance was a dance with children holding strings and acting like puppets.

At last Prize distribution came. We all had worries in our mind. We thought “What if I sneeze?” or “What if I cough?”

At last my turn came to get the prize. I took a deep breath and climbed the stage. Kabir Bedi smiled and said congratulations. I smiled back.

After that I hurried down the stage and went to find mom and dad. Everybody congratulated me as I went past. “Janaki S Nair?” a voice called behind me. I twirled back and saw dad and hugged him. Mom was waiting for us in the ground and we all went back home.

Dinner with Rishik


I stared at the food. There was French toast, pancake, tuna sandwich and apple cake. I wondered which I would eat first. The apple cake looked delicious, it melted in my mouth. So yummy! I took another slice. Wow…

It was a ladies and kids party. Our moms chatted while we roamed around. There was tea and juice. I had juice. We did not play anything; nobody was in the mood for playing. The party was for a short time, it was not long before we said good bye.

My exams will start next month. I have to study a lot. After that two weeks holidays, then the sixth grade! I am not getting time to read the books we bought from India. Still I have successfully completed a few like the firework-maker’s daughter, Big nate, Am I the princess or the frog and Sophie the awesome.

Last night we had dinner at Pizza Inn with uncle Biju, aunt Deepa and baby Rishik. The food was great. Rishik was in a playful mood. His mother had ordered a special pizza for him. When the waiter brought pepsi,  Rishik tried to catch it.  

After dinner all of us stood outside for a while. Rishik liked to see cars pass and sometimes “Aaahed” and “Ooohed”.

Gopichan & uncle Venki


When we reached India, there was a huge surprise for me. Gopichan had printed out my blog into the pages of a book. It is really wonderful to see with shiny papers and photos. There were great illustrations by artist Venki uncle which I admired a lot.


We gave some copies of the book to my relatives. They liked them a lot. I even took the book to school and showed my classmates. My class teacher Shagufta ma’am borrowed it for a few periods and read the whole book. My friends told me that the book was great.

I am really grateful to Gopichan and uncle Venki. I promised to myself that if I ever got a chance to meet uncle Venki I will get his autograph.
