Evolution of my writing Skills!!!











I did not study in any city schools and all the schools i go(schools with 2000+ students), the medium of communication would be only tamil though they were english medium schools, My only english sources were some anglo classmates, 80% parents(DAD) and very very few teachers (2-3) that too only my mom's friends. In the school which i studied when i started writing these, my classmates were mostly from slums. so if u think i did a lousy job when i was 8 yrs old.... i dont care :-) The following stuff that you see will be hilarious... But you can notice that i was getting better!!.
My Family went from one place to another shifting houses coz of various reasons and coz of that i didn't make much friends... I started writing when i was in Maraimalai nagar where our 2 storied house was surrounded by slums and it was vacation time and it was pouring out heavily outside... and since i didn't have friends, i had no reason to go out (so i had no choice, i had to do something). I remember sitting in my room upstairs facing the window watching outside when i started writing. (especially the rain poem)

A Monkey on a tree
Story I

One day in a house, There were (was) mango tree, banana tree, orange tree and gova near that(those) green green mountains.

In the mountain there are monkeys, snakes and elephant.

The other animals stay in the mountain, the monkey is the only animal who come from the mountain.

The mother could not find any fruits in the garden so the mother searched for the fruits early in the morning. (MEANING: a mother used to pick fruits early in the morning coz she wont find any to pick during the day)

One day they forgot to find the fruits because their child is going out early in the morning. When the child comes(came) back home, the power has gone(power cut), The child felt as sleep (felt sleepy). He was very hungry. he called the mother and told that he was hungry. "I am going to sleep after dinner(is ready) wake me".
The mother went to the kitchen and kept the cooker in the stove and the mother lighted the stove five times, then the mother knew (came to know) that there is (was) no gas. She went to the garden and saw weather there is any fruits. The mother saw in the gova tree, a basket full of mangoes, bananas, oranges and gova(baskets apparently from the kitchen were up the tree). the mother took the torch to take the basket, the basket was too high. The mother thought (wondered) how can the basket of fruits can go up. The mother lighted the torch, she saw two eyes were shining. The power came. the mother lighted (switched on) the outside light, she saw a monkey. She called her children and all of them laughed. The mother told the children what had happened. all of them slept and the monkey stole the fruits.
