It was about 4 in the morning when my parents along with my uncle and aunt started their travel to Thirupathi. Of course, my sister and I were alone at home. We were happily playing carrom board. At that time the phone bells rang and mysister who attended the call started crying. When i asked what the matter was, she told me that our parents had met with an accident on their way to Thirupathi. It was that, when they were nearing Kailasapuram (approximately 5 km from Thirupathi), there was an 'S' bend on the road and the driver didn't even care to slow down the car which was travelling at a speed of 80 km/h. Just when they took the turn, they noticed a big stone on their path. The front wheel escaped without damage but the back wheel got hit by the stone and the tire got burst. The car was out of the driver's control. It hit a big lamp - post near - by and landed in a 50 - feet well doing some somer-saults. Fortunately, there was no water in the well and no electricity in the village that day. Then the villagers immediately came to their aid and they were saved. Thank goodness the Almighty was with them in the form of the villagers.

SHIVA & THE GANESHA

By MANASEE, VII A

 

 

Manasee has a natural talent of writing. Following is one of the mythological stories written in her own words.

 

 

Once upon a time on the peak of Kailasa Mountain lived a divine man, he was none other than the lord Shiva.

Once upon a time on the Kailasa Parvathi was sitting on the rock and looking at the river which followed nearby. Suddenly she thought of creating her son and she did. She created a baby and named him Ganesha.

She then told him to guard the palace while she took bath. Meanwhile shiva came and Ganesha stopped him from going inside. In a rage of anger he cut off the neck of Ganesha.

When Parvathi came out she saw her son lying dead. She became very angry. She asked Kali and Durga (Her figher friends) to kill every body.

Lords and gods ran to Shiva and said about this. Shiva then ordered Nandi his super natural servant to cut the head of anybody who was sleeping in the north direction (facing towards north). nandi brought the head of an elephant which was sleeping in the north direction.

Thus Ganesha was given the head of the elephant and Shiva blessed him. All other celestial beings also blessed him.
