Family & friends

The old famous princess tale THE SNOW WHITE isn’t just any old tale for kids. It holds a nice meaning in it waiting to be found.


In the story, the evil queen hates snow and wants Snow White gone and the huntsman works for the queen but lets her go and the dwarfs and the prince helps her gives her a better life.
Now, this the actual meaning I understood not very long back:-

The evil queen is just a symbol of all the hard times we face in life. It can a be friend who turned on you or a project at work.


The huntsman tells us how much ever the problem, there will be something to thicken the ice and give you some grace time to figure things out.


The dwarfs are the friend in life who comforts and temporally resolves the problem.


The prince is typically used in many tales like this, but it’s the most important part of the hidden story. It symbolises family because, in the end, you’ll always have them to put right back on your feet help you go through your thick and thins.

This tells us how important family & friends are.So this time of year call all your close friends and family and celebrate a fruitful christmas. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR

The kitten in a boarding school – The story

Candy was born in a boarding school two other siblings. Sadly the three of them did not turn out to be very healthy and so were unfortunately on the mother’s hit list. The mother managed to incapacitate her two siblings within two to three days of their birth. Luckily we were able to get Candy out of her imminent death and gave her sanctuary in our dorm rooms.

If you are wondering why the name doesn’t really match her appearance, her name stuck that way because when she was born she had almost no hair and she had exposed pink skin bringing to mind pink cotton candy, not to mention she was very cute too.

At first she wouldn’t be able to stand on all fours properly and would often shake probably because she was weak. We all being very new at this, didn’t know what we were up against. How are we even supposed to know what it wants and needs, and when?

We figured that we had to find a way to feed the poor thing lest it starved to death. We found one of those medicine droppers that were small and mouth sized for the cat. It seemed to do the trick. For the next few weeks, it would feed on milk, sit in a cardboard box loaded with old clothes, until it was able to move about without any problem.

After that, the rate at which that cat grew in size was mind-boggling, and soon enough the cat was running, jumping, and pretty much making friends with the plants in the nearby garden.

Candy still lives there even though we left for our year end vacations and continues to enjoy her life to the fullest.

Not Home but Okay …

It was a cloudy Saturday. I was walking down the path to the dormitory. As I walked, I could feel a pinch of discontent. All I could hear was silence in the noisy atmosphere. Everyone seemed happy to meet their old friends, yet not noticing that I existed. I felt invisible. I sat in my room all alone. no one around to ask me the question, “what’s your name?” I just sat there in the ultimate silence, thinking if I had made a big mistake.

I had enrolled myself at a boarding school in the middle of nowhere, far away from home. I joined thinking I would gain the values of studying in a boarding school, but it was not more than fifteen minutes that I started feeling homesick.

It was not until nine o’ clock in the night that I was assigned, my new roommate. He was a plump guy, who didn’t seem to be from this part of the world. He had a fair complexion with a really dark beard and eyebrows, which terrified me. I kept a positive mind and thought to myself that all was going to be well.

He spoke less, confined to his own space in the room staring at me as if he was possessed. I felt uncomfortable, I wanted to go home, but I knew it was too late for that. It was then that I thought about my mother and I started to cry. I did not know what to do. The silence was driving me crazy.

Through the silence, I heard something, as if someone was crying. It was then that I realized that I wasn’t the only one who felt the way I did. Suddenly, my scary looking roommate didn’t look scary at all. I could see that inside, he felt as miserable as I did, and to be honest I was quite relieved that at least someone in the ignoring world knew how I felt.

It cheered me up enough to go up and talk to him. I could see the same relief in him too after that. That night was the first time I had experienced homesickness and I was lucky, that I experienced it with a friend, who was not more terrified than I was. It was an experience of a lifetime for me.
