My brother's going to Lourdes Convent

My brother is in KGI(A). Teacher Virginia is his class teacher. They learn songs and they do other things.

My and my friend Saachi (she has two sisters that are in KGII B) we all go to see them. Her sisters are Shimron and Shimmy. When we go to see Shimron and Shimmy, they get disturbed because they're always doing their studies. So their teacher tells us to go away.

When we go to see Aren, the door is always closed, the windows are closed sometimes. Today the window was open, and yesterday the window was closed.

There's one girl called Theresa, and her sister is in KGI (B). Her sister's name is Eunicia.

So, Theresa went to see her, and called her, "Eunicia, Eunicia." And one other small girl was looking at Theresa. Theresa told the small girl to call Eunicia. Eunicia didn't know who was there, and she saw her afterwards. Theresa was screaming, "E-u-n-i-c-i-a, E-u-n-i-c-i-a." And when she saw her, she became more sad, and she burst out into tears. Because she misses her parents and Theresa. When she sees Theresa, she thinks of her parents and home.

In my class, when I was in the KG, no children used to cry. They used to all be good. Only Jorge used to cry, because he was new. He had come from America, and it was the first time being in the school. He had not joined from nursery, but joined from KG II.

I'm the leader for the primary section. I have to stop children from running in the corridor, and I have to make them go quietely, without running, to go home. Our school is brown-and-yellow in colour. It has three floors.  It has a ground floor, with all the big children's (secondary) classes. The first floor is the chapel (and where all the sisters live). The second floor is the primary section. At the side is the KG. Where the primary section is, at the right, is the teachers' library. There's also a children's library.

We also have a computer hall, and a basketball court, and a park.

We have a little pond (a little lake-like thing) where there's a wall, where you can go. But we cannot go, because it's surrounded by water, and there are fishes. There is one lotus, and it's purple colour.

Aren says that he likes his class-teacher very much. His class teacher has three daughters, named Leander, Lorraine and Lillian.

Her husband, Uncle Henry, died recently. When I was a small girl, I was going with my daddy on the cycle, and we saw him. And I was eating leaves. My daddy had not seen that I was eating the leaves; he didn't know. When my daddy came to know, he grabbed them and threw them out. But by that time I brought up, and Uncle Henry saw what was happening. He was very surprised and said, "You're giving your daughter leaves to eat."

I was eating the leaves because I was feeling hungry, and I didn't know to tell. Sometimes I would just eat whatever I found, sometimes I would just cry for chocolates, otherwise I would bite my waterbottle. At this time I was two-and-a-half and my daddy used to take me for cycle rides. We had a bike, but in the evening or morning or afternoon we would go by cycle. Air is not so costly, but petrol is very costly.

Cycling is good because it's exercise, to lose weight.

We went for a walk in the evening... in the rain. My friend, my grandfather and my brother were with me. My friend, me and my brother went to the convent chapel to pray. I prayed, but my friend (Sachi) and my brother didn't pray.

Then, when were coming back, Sachi was carrying Aren. And du'bunk... they fell.

They fell in the water near the steps. The corridor steps.

Sachi was carrying Aren, and she was wearing crocodile slippers... the slippery slippers. So she slipped with him! He said he got hurt on his b*m. Sachi got hurt on her leg.

After he went home, he said, it didn't pain. But it was not paining.

Aren wants to be come a train-geneer. Train-geneer means people who repair trains, Aren says.

Aren told me, "I want to look after the trains. I will fix up the engines. I will on the Konkani Railway ... Konkan Railway."

I am back to school

I like to go back to school. I am in the fourth standard, and my new class is fun. My teacher's name is teacher Savia.

Yesterday was my first day. It was Monday. There was no rain on Monday. I have many friends. My partner's name is Anagha. Now I got a new partner. It's a boy; his name is ... I forgot.

Partner means a girl or a boy who sits besides you, and helps you. But normally we have our own games; the girls have their own games, and the boys have their own games.

In my third standards, the girls used to play many types of games. But the boys used to play lock-and-key, or catching cook. Now we didn't start playing as yet.

My class is joined to the other class. Our door leads to the same door. The other class is Fourth Standard Zuyo, and mine is Fourth Standard Zayo. Zayo means little flower, and zuyo also means little flower. They are two names of classes, like how you have 'A' and 'B' . It's like that till the fourth. In the fifth (standard), they have A and B. In the first-to-fourth it's Konkani (medium), so they have Konkani names.

Aren also goes to school, to Lourdes Convent. He is in KGI(B). No, KGI(A). In Teacher Virginia's class.

My visit to Aldona

I went to Aldona on May 30, 2007 (Wednesday). There are all big houses in Aldona. There are rivers and all. From here, it is 30 kilometres, yeah dada? Maybe less. Or maybe more.

I saw a river, and there were four canoes. Two were broken, and two were okay. Aren was troubling daddy to go in the canoe, and daddy was taking photos.

Before that, we went to the market, and we stopped at the 'tea shop'. Niyati had nothing; my dad had a tea and a laddoo. Aren had half a laddoo; I had half a laddoo, and Mountain Dew (a fizzy drink, like Coke and all).

After that, we saw a statue of one teacher. He used to teach the high-school boys. He was very nice to them, and they liked him very much, so in remembrance they put a statue.

We also passed the boys' high school. We went in one lane (on the right side), and then we saw one house. It was maroon and yellow, and after that, we went to Niyati's house.

They had one dog. The dog's name is ... I cannot remember, it's on the tip of my tongue, I'll tell you later.

There was another dog. The other dog's name was Rudy. He was a puppy, he was three months old, he was brown colour, and had lovely-fluffy-hairy ears, and he was playing catching-cook with me. He was just chasing me all over, even when I was eating... specially when I was eating.

Niyati's mother cooked the food. I ate rice and dal, and some tomato, and chicken, and two nice and red-inside guavas. I ate some banana chips. There was also some pork and it was lippery. It came like lipstick on the lips (as you ate it). [Laughing] I don't like pork , beef or mutton or chicken lollypops (except garlic chicken lollypops), because they have some fat. I liked the other food also, but I liked the gauvas and the dal the best. There was spinach curry too.

We had a lot of fun in their house. We watched Jungle Book II.

Aren is learning to draw

Aren drew a drawing. Aren drew a crab, and a eel. I drew a sea-horse, and Aren coloured the sea-horse. Aren drew the crab, and he coloured it. Daddy drew two crabs, that Aren coloured.

Aren likes to draw with me. I help him to draw with his drawings.

He likes to draw mostly fishes, crabs and boats. Because he likes the beach very much, he likes to swim. He likes crabs very much. He likes to eat crabs also very much. And now he's saying, "Those are the squiggly-wiggly worms."

He's going to become a computer engineer when he grows up. When I grow up, I would like to be an artist, because I like drawing very much. Aren wants me to become an architect. Now he's asking me, "Are you going to become an architect", and he's jumping on me.
