Let’s just be fabulously where we are and who we are. You be you and I’ll be me, today and today and today, and let’s trust the future to tomorrow. Let the stars keep track of us. Let us ride our own orbits and trust that they will meet. May our reunion be not a finding but a sweet collision of destinies and enlightening experience shared!
After a long winter break, finally the family of Keekli Book Club reunited once again for a fun filled book club session at Book Cafe, Takka Bench, Shimla, that gave each one a glimpse of the journey each one took to make their vacation more meaningful.
Each member shared their fun filled experiences during the vacation time and brought the tales of wisdom and fun that each one read during their winter break.
Best surprise was a sketch presented to Meenakshi Madam, made by our little sweet Gauri. Members was given a task for next session and last but not the least new plans for the future club sessions were discussed that excited the little ones.
Midnight for Charlie Bones by Jenny Nimmo, The Little Princess by Frances Hodgon Burnett and The Stinky Cheese Vacation by Geronimo Stilton were some of the stories that captivated the hearts of our little club members.
Beautiful poems written by our very own Baani – “I was wrong” and “Family” made each one reflect on the life and significance of people in it and most importantly who we should consider our priority in life.
The session ended on a positive note with a bright promise of future and creativity to expand its horizon as members were given a task to write a story each based on a moral in Hindi and English along with a making a sketch for the same.
All looked forward to next meeting as a surprise is promised at the end of August for all.
