Favourite book from childhood

·        I have read many books in my childhood – like story books, comics and so on
·        But here I would like to talk about a book that is very special to me even today
·        The title of the book is Grimm’s fairy tales
·        The book is written by W.C.Grimm
·        This book was gifted to me by my mother on my tenth birthday
·        She bought the book from an exhibition
·        This book has many fairy tales
·        To name a few – the frog prince – the sleeping beauty – snow white and the seven dwarfs and so many more
·        Even today I flick through the pages of the book when I am free.
·        The pages of the book have turned yellow but still the book is very special to me
·        I remember I was very possessive about the book
·        I never used to give it to anybody
·        Sometimes I used to take it to school also
·        Once I took part in a story telling competition and I got first prize
·        I told the story of The Frog Prince
·        The stories are very interesting and meaningful
·        Along with the text there are many pictures also
·        I have covered the book with glazed paper
·        Every night before going to bed, I used to read one or two stories
·        My brother also used to read stories from this book
·        This book inculcated in me the habit of reading
·        You know ma’am, nowadays the habit of reading is going down in children
·        My mother always inspired me to read books

TV programme that you did not like

·       Well, I live watching TV
·       In fact whenever I get free time, I glue myself to the TV screen
·       I watch a few daily soaps and some reality shows
·       The recent programme I saw and did not like was – Raaz pichle janam ka – which means the mystery of the past life
·       I saw the programme last week when I went to visit my cousin
·       There I saw it for the first time
·       My cousin never misses any episode
·       The programme was telecast on NDTV Imagine at 9.30 p.m.
·       The program was hosted by mr Ravi Kishan
·       He hosted the programme very nicely
·       As per the program, a person can peep into his past life
·       I did not like it because it appeared very unrealistic to me
·       Moreover, the past is over and there is no fun digging into past life
·       I also feel that such programmes can breed superstitions
·       Such programmes are not my cup of tea
·       Later on I came to know from my cousin that the programme has been withdrawn
·       Maybe it did not appeal to the masses
