SPECIAL MENTION ENTRY IN OIWC


So yes, Here I am. Reminiscing on the memory lane. Well, actually not. Mum just woke me up from a beautiful flashback I had this morning. The never-ending stretches, the wrappers of mouth-watering delectable stuffs, the noise and the poise. If I can elongate the sentence, I’d finish the whole excerpt in one. It is, indeed, too good to be true. The place of many incidents is my Alma mater, my school.

Marks aren’t the only things in life. Overall development of the personality is also a necessity in this world and you have to develop it from the beginning itself.

SPECIAL MENTION ENTRY IN OIWC


Life of students these days is enthralling. Do you know what makes it so fascinating? I am sure you do! It’s the scoreboard which there lives have turned into, where they are knowingly or unknowingly competing with each other day in and day out, to get higher marks. Isn’t it captivating? For those out there who think it is, it’s time to change your mindset, because its better late than never! For others who are sheer hypocrites, pretending not to be part of the former crowd so as to be in your own self-defined good books yet constantly indulging in these scoreboard practices, its high time that you also stop getting involved in this. For the rest who aren’t part of this game’s scoreboard-either as a participant or as the team of the participant, I truly appreciate and respect you all for this and I hope you never intend to become one over the coming span of time.

School Life: An Ocean of Memories – Esha Maken

Esha

Another writer reminiscing about her school days. A lighter article after such heavy ones. Those who are fresh out of school will surely enjoy reading these musings.

SPECIAL MENTION ENTRY IN OIWC


“School life!” These are not just two words but they include the most beautiful era of one’s life. How interesting life is! The same place where one cries to go at some point of his life, the same is the place for which the same person craves for going at some other point of his life. School life is such a phase which explains us very practically how we do not value the things we have with us and then suddenly after parting from that thing, we just recall, evoke and recollect attaining nothing but memories!
I would like to abridge these feelings of echoing memories into this short poem
of mine:

SPECIAL MENTION ENTRY IN OIWC

Disclaimer: All these are personal thoughts and are not meant to offend anyone.


Education is the primary need for the development and overall healthy functioning of any country.  In the Indian context particularly education is of utmost importance because of the kind of history that we have had. Years and years of misguided beliefs and ignorance have led to us believing anything and everything that is imposed on us without really giving it a proper thought. With the kind of importance attached, education, its ways and dimensions have been debated time and again. These debates have their own importance because they compel people to analyze and question their own beliefs. They also provide with several new perspectives on any topic and hence they constantly work with the involvement of the people to bring out the best in any particular argument.

CONSOLATION PRIZE WINNING ENTRY IN OIWC


Someone once said –

There is a tide in the affairs of men.

Which, taken at the flood,

Leads on to fortune;

Omitted, all the voyage of their life

Is bound in shallows and in miseries.

On such a full sea are we now afloat.

Relationships and their effects on Youth – Rhea Gupta

FIRST PRIZE WINNING ENTRY IN OIWC


I wish you were a dream,
As dreamy as a unicorn,
As ethereal as a house of chocolate,
But mostly as make-believe as a dream…
Then I wouldn’t have to regret every moment spent, rather wasted,
In those arms of yours that won’t let go,
Filled with those forged promises to stay by me,
And how you made me believe with each kiss on my cheek that you cared for me,
And as you planted your lips on mine, you said ‘I love you.’
Ha! Those words. Which once made my day, made me feel special. Are just another nightmare that doesn’t let me sleep.
