Calvin and Dennis have set the appropriate, if not a little exaggerated, example
for the phenomenon of childhood in every person's life. Sure, they can be brats,
and many a hundred times moms must have waited breathlessly for the invention
of a special form of restraint or an instrument which gives them powers to control
the subjects' brain pattern. Wouldn't that be a scary thought? And then once in
a while they redeem themselves with the most minute of actions or words.
One best way to get into the parents' good books would be to win a prize. Staying
there cannot be vouched for, and is dependent solely on the behaviour of the kid.
And if the prize is won at an inter-school competition, there is a chance that
they would let bygones be bygones. An opportunity for just this sort of outshining
talent has come to the Jawahar Bal Bhavan.
A variety of competitions is being organised which are sure to conform to as varied
a choice as one can get. A brief list of the competitions to be held is:
Classical dance - Bharatanatyam, Kathak, Kuchupudi
Phew! With a list that spans as much in all directions, it can be taken for granted
that the hidden ability of any kid will be revealed.
And if this doesn't work out, there always are those who still made it big. For
example, Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn etc. After all, there is a thin line that
divides fiction from reality. Prizes are going to be given out to all the winners
of the various categories. The competition is for children in the age group of
8 to 16. Thus far there have been more than 100 schools that have registered for
May the best of them all win. Like there is any other alternative.
