Today I got 4 stars in Mathmatics annual exams.That imprinted 4 stars🌟🌟🌟🌟were really sparkling Splendid Fervour! This pride feeling was quadrupled when my name was announced in the classroom by none other than my class teacher for neat and clean maths copy. Big round of applause from my classmates were elating me from inside and was giving experience of victory over world despite being only 9 year old and with present academic status of standard 3. I was smart enough to notice the subdued but widespread jealousy behind the manipulative happier faces of my many of so called best friends.Suddenly I heard voice of one of my classmate Abhijeet,”I did it”.His expression was revealing that he has got the treasures of life and immediately we came to know that it was 4 stars, which he got in maths were the hidden treasures which he was able to unearth. No sooner I realised that my joy of all applauds and stars were withering like falling dry leafs; perhaps I was also engulfed with the same invisible but actually existent jealousy ,with which my fellow friends were perceived by me, myself.While returning home I recalled my mother’s sayings that stars(teacher’s stars) are symbols of students improvements. The more one improves ,the more will be the allotted stars.But still I was failing to convince myself ,how that bulliest boy becomes saint ,all in a day? HOW? HOW?? “Has he stopped speaking lie? Nooo…..Never………….How could that habitual eater of lunch boxes of classmates ,fickleminded can get so much stars!”
Before pasting stars in his copy ,why hasn’t teacher’s stars got finished?,I muttered. Actually teacher ‘s stars never finishes…..I wonder from where teacher brings these stars—–those “NEVER ENDING STARS”!!!
With these perplexity I returned home and saw my mother ,it again catalyzed my wings of excitement and with delighted face I put my reportcard infront of her and asked from where teacher brings so much stars and that too with magical fragrance! She just smiled and patted on my back for the accumulated stars and got busy in her chores . With curious eyes I was looking someone who can answer my queries, the same time I saw my brother Abhiveer,5 yr younger than me, playing with his car and tearing newspaper lying beside the bed of my father and I immediately dropped the idea of showing my stars to anybody as it was quite evident that the eyes of Abhiveer was looking for something new to be chewed or chopped. The last hope rested on my father who usually comes by 7.30 p.m.It was just 4.15 p.m and was eagerly waiting and requesting the needles of that round plate(clock) to be bit fast contrary to what I felt during exams. Finally the time came.Yes it’s 7.30 p.m.My patience paid,father arrived.Esctatically, I showed him my reportcard and asked about the source of TEACHER’S MYSTERIOUS NEVERENDING STARS. Father laughed as if I cracked a joke,how WEIRD! After dinner, he replied and clapped for my brilliant remarks .Again, I have to wait,nooo…. not again!I murmured. I wish, I could have all teacher’s stars!! Much to my surprise, I found myself in space with all the same #TEACHER’S #NEVERENDING STARS. Astounded!Was it a dream? Yes it was. After dinner I forgot to ask and slept off. I DREAMED…..and DREAMED I DREAMED…………and DREAMED….. and here I am with my all time favourite dream pet “a flying autosaurus”(a kind of dinosaur).Seems together we took off for space.
It was all fun.I hopped off my autosaurus and started hopping on stars!Hop ,Hop,Hop……..I had mine and my younger brother school bag that I emptied so I could collect as many stars as I could in these bags. My autosaurus was shrugging as I had forgotten to feed him his fruit smoothie this morning.(since he’s a plant eater he gets all his energy from fruit’s and vegetables).
Luckily, I kept an extra tank of it hanging from the saddle.”Here you go!”I said “feeding it”. Eat up! The autosaurus devoured in one gulp and then sped off. Together we started plucking stars from the dark sky as I am plucking flowers from plant and collected them in bag.It barely took 15 minutes to collect stars. When we finished I asked my autosaurus”,should we depart?”(But actually we don’t want to leave as we were enjoying the place). No pressure of doing homework,no mischievousness of my younger brother who always sticks his nose into everything of mine and destroying my books ,assignments. You see…I don’t like anyone’s interference while working!Yet,I love his cute innocence smile ,always in a playful mood and now I am missing him! We decided to return but before we head down I wanted to take that glowing“Sliver Lighted Chapatti”(according to my younger brother)—–THE MOON 🌚 for him. He gets delighted whenever he looks moon and insist for having it thinking it as a chappatti. And we used to calm him by saying that mother’s chappatti is more delicious ….let it be. I climbed into my saddle of autosaurus and asked him to move towards moon.l can hear the whirring of wings of dactyl in this peace. The moon was getting more brighter and more bigger as we are getting closer.What, “if there is no moon in the sky!….boomed in my head.
The night will become gloomy and scary forever.It’s the moon whose light is the only hope in creepy dark.Moreover, many creatures lives are dependent on moon. No,noo…I shall’nt displace moon .I will rather get “Batasa (an Indian sweet prepared specially during Deepawali festival ) for brother telling him this is the same sliver Lighted Chapatti that used to glow in the sky. And if he wonder there is still one(moon)in the sky,I would say God made another one for someother kid like you. I asked autosaurus to head back Earth as the sky started getting lighter and the moon started fading.I barely had time to grab the saddle as autosaurus hurried and sped off towards the Green Land(Earth) 🌍. I opened my eyes satisfied lying on bed.I was dreaming ,quizzingly snatching my own scalp looked my younger brother sleeping next by me. What an ADVENTUROUS DREAM !! I wish I could turn back the clock and bring the wheels of time to stop in the middle of those twinkling stars!!
