My curiosity grew in science because of a very special teacher when I was a ten-year-old boy in Class V. This was indeed a life-changing event. My science teacher’s name was Shri Siva Subramania Iyer. One day the topic of discussion in our class of sixty-five was ‘how birds fly? He drew a sketch of a bird with a tail, wings, feathers, and head on the board and explained how a bird flew. He explained how a bird could lift elf, fly and change direction by using its wings and the tail. He asked us whether we understood.

We gave a gloomy reply – no. Mr. Iyer did not get upset. That evening he took all of us to the seashore. The sunset, waves, cool breeze, and the chirping of birds all together made it a very pleasant atmosphere. He asked all of us to notice how the birds make a formation in a group and fly. He also told us to notice the shape of the formation made by the birds while flew. He drew our attention towards how they flap their wings to fly higher and how they use the tail to propel directions. Mr. Iyer also made us notice how the bird is powered to fly by itself. In 15 minutes, all the students cheerfully shouted “yes sir, we now understand how birds fly on their own.” (The Turning Point)

Dear Diary,
In the morning, the photos I saw are really magnificent. They are the photos of war between Britain and Germany. How attractive they are !

The German Air Force is sending hundreds of planes and bombers to attack the city and the British Royal Air Force is deploying their full force to defend their motherland. 1 like those stories of brave pilots from both the sides, and how they manoeuvre their aircrafts and bombers. I love the stories of the pilots and their planes. I am really curious about planes. I love the profession of a pilot. I too shall become a pilot myself. I shall operate the planes. But my family is a poor one where nobody is a literate. What can I do ? Yes, I shall take the guidance from our teachers. That’s all for now! I’m really tired and I am going to sleep.

Answer:
The Farmer and His Five Sons
Once there was an old farmer. He had five sons. The sons were lazy and selfish. They always quarrelled with one another. The old man was worried about his sons’ future. He tried to mend their behaviour by saying a few good words. But the sons did not care arid they did not change their ways. So, the old man wanted to teach his sons a lesson and he asked his servants to bring a bundle of sticks. He called his sons and asked them to break the bundle one after another. But they could not break the bundle as it was not an easy task. Then the old man loosened the bundle and gave them a stick each. They could break the sticks easily. Thus the old man tried to make them understand the value of unity like a bundle of sticks. The sons understood the value of unity and they started to believe that unity is strength.
Moral: Unity is strength.
