One glorious Sunday morning ,the sun was blazing like a golden coin in the humongous sky. In a city named Flingdon resided a small lad named Ash. He was five years old. When he finished his homework , he called his friends Mystry and Rock. Ash and his friends were playing an enthusiastic game of football on the bridge. Rocky was strong so he kicked the ball hard and the ball flew like an aeroplane and fell into the river which was as deep as a well. The ball was floating as slowly as a snail. Ash was helpful as a community helper. H e dashed towards the river. The ball was drifting away. Suddenly, Ash lost his balance and fell into the river. He cried, “Help !” but he and his companions did not know how to swim. Fortunately, a policeman saw Ash drowning in the water so the police dived in the water and rescued Ash. The two companions came to see if their beloved friend awakened. Fortunately , he was as fit as a fiddle. From that day, they vowed never to play near the river and learnt a magnificent lesson.
A lad named Vihaan who was as dashing as a prince was playing with his ball on a bridge. Beside the bridge there was a river which was as deep as a well. As Vihaan was bouncing the ball which was as colourful as a pack of crayons. Suddenly the ball fell into the river. Vihaan was very upset. A notion blossomed in his mind. The ball was on the edge of the river so he tried to grab it. Unfortunately, the ball had drifted as slowly as a tortoise from the edge of the river. Vihaan stretched his little hand ahead because he was determined to grab the ball. Suddenly he lost his balance fell into the river. The water was as cold as ice. He was bobbing up and down. He shouted on top of his lings for help. Fortunately, a man was jogging beside the river and he noticed Vihaan drowning in the water. The man had a heart of gold so he called a policeman by a phone. As the policeman came, he resuced Vihaan. As time flew like a bird, Vihaan’s parents were shocked because Vihaan didn’t reach home . They went to search for Vihaan. As the parents reached the river , they were relieved to see Vihaan . Vihaan sprinted like lightning to his parents and embraced them. Their parents were grateful to the jogger and the helpful police officer . They gave Vihaan a warning. Vihaan never played beside a river again. They went home feeling as exhilarated as a lark.

It was a glorious and pleasant Thursday morning. I woke up at the crack of dawn as it was my birthday that day. I was amazed as a bird in flight to see curly streamers and balloons which were as colourful as a pack of crayons. I was shocked. I was in Andheri Recreation Club. The hall was as gigantic as an airport. I was exhilarated and amazed to see my friends waiting for me in the hall. It looked as splendid as a rainbow. I really say it was a surprise birthday party for me. The theme was Science because that was my favourite subject. First, we made gluey, slimey slime. Afterwards, the magician had arrived. He asked me to break wood with a banana ! “How crazy is that , isn’t it ?” He put some gas and I could do it. Soon, I went to the tattoo artist. He painted the picture of Thomas, Edison who is my favourite inventor on my hand. The game host called us and we played amazing games like musical chairs and blindman’s bluff. The winners were given splendid prizes. There were about one hundred and fifty children in my birthday party. Soon, it was the cake cutting ceremony. The cake was enormous and scrumptious. They all sang the birthday song for me. Time flew like a bird and it was lunch time. There was pizza, pasta and other types of local dishes. All comrades gave me awesome gifts and I gave them fabulous return gifts. That was a memorable and fun – filled birthday party. I’m as excited as a child in a candy store to have a birthday party like this again.
