A day at Orphanage

Hi Friends
I hope u all celebrated Deewali with lots of crackers and sweets.. This time i have comeup to share a sweet memory with you..

Our office team had the oppurtunity to visit an Orphange in Porur in Chennai on one weekend before Deewali. There were 20 children who are studying and one lady was taking care of them. They behaved very well with us and mingled with us easily. Very small children who were studying kindergarden were also there. We conducted some games to them like cricket, games with balloons and some word games. We bought some toys, snacks and dresses for Deewali.

They were very happy to see their new dresses. Some children were interested in dance. So i taught them some steps and they learnt very well. We had lunch with them and spent till evening. We were bonded with them so much in a few hours that i got tears when they asked me to stay with them. Then only i understood, children want someone to play with, talk to and enjoy. If you remeber well, we would also have felt like that when we were of small age.Many people will provide funds to good organisations. It is very good. But if we can spend some time , share their interests and make them happy for sometime, it will be great!!!

Isn't it? what do you think?

Until next time..

Sherlock Holmes - [Book review]

Hi Friends
Most of us who studied Andhra pradesh state syllabus for 8th standard might have read the non-detail 'The Hound of Baskervelli's'. How u felt?

Actually after reading that book, i became a fan of 'Sir Arthur Connan Doyle'. I started collecting all his novels and short stories from then, but couldnt get enough time to read them. But after EAMCET, we got nearly 3 months time between results anouncement and counselling.Then i read 4 novels and nearly 50 short stories. All were very interesting and also thought provoking.

Unlike other detective stories, Sherlock holmes' stories are special in one way. In these stories, Sherlock holmes character will explain his deductions so well that we think that solving a problem is not that much difficult if we approach it in a right way. These stories also mainly concentrate on human psychology and basic observetion skills.
Some of the best short stories are:
  • The adventure of Devil's Foot
  • The Adventure of Dying detective
In Novels, my best picks are : A study in Scarlet and The hound of Baskervelii's
If anyone of you are interested on ebooks of his stories, u can access the following link
