What I liked at St Xavier's...

Hello folks! I'm nine now. It has been a long time since I was here last. 

By the way, I like Science a lot, and I want to become an inventor. Today, my father took me to St Xavier's College to see a Science exhibition there. I spent most of my time in the rooms of the Physics and Chemistry exhibition, though there were also other subjects like Electronics, English, Hindi and Journalism.

In Chemistry, I saw them put a solid that looked like ice, on a piece of tin foil. Then they added something that looked like water on the transparent solid on the foil. Then, it started to bubble. Then foam came out.

When the foam cleared, the foil dissolved!!!

The second experiment was about putting some powder in a glass of water, and the water turning purple. Then, a college girl blew carbon dioxide with a straw into the water, and the water got its colour back.

The Physics exhibition was the best. (I don't like to compare, but still...)

In In  Physics, the one I liked best was a small robot that works on solar energy. It has a solar panel, and it worked better in sunlight. But because we were indoors, they had to use a lamp-bulb to demonstrate.


The second experiment which I saw closely was on a machine that shows the frequency of the brain. Well, not exactly. We don't have to connect it to the brain. The person demonstrating just increases the frequency by turning a knob. But when connected to a patient's brain, it will also give the reading. The person demonstrating told us how high and how fast the brain waves were moving. These reflected emotions -- i.e. anger, happiness, etc. 

The third experiment I saw was a burglar alarm. A student made a model of a cardboard door. On each side, there was a sensor. The sensor detected when you put your hand through. It made a noise and gave an alarm.

Thank you folks for reading this blog entry of mine.

The secrets of drawing....

My first drawing was not so good. My second drawing was little better. My third drawing, I improved.

Now I like drawing because I'm used it, and it comes out really nice.

My favourite things to draw are volcanoes, outer space, faces (cartoon faces I mean), cars and buses. Of all the drawings I like to draw cartoon faces the best. I like drawing cartoon faces because they are funny.

First I didn't know that shading the drawing would make it look better. Now, sometimes, I shade it. My grandfather told me that if I shade it, the drawing would look better.

My favourite colours are sunset orange and red, and yellow, black and brown. Purple too. I like using pencil colours, because they come light and it looks a little better. It takes a long time to colour a big drawing, but when the drawing is small it's easier.

When a drawing is coloured, it looks much better.

Pygmy blue whales...

This is the first time I saw a photo of a pygmy blue whale. I saw it on the Wikipedia. Wikipedia is a website that gives you free information about anything you want to search out. Wikipedia allows you to use their photos on your blog, etc.

I like whales because they are beautiful and huge, and they are very big.

Origami animals

Today, I brought home three friends, and I thought them origami. I taught them how to make an animal face. My friends are Yash, Vaman and Raj.

Origami is my favourite hobby.
Origami (折り紙?, from ori meaning "folding", and kami meaning "paper") is the traditional Japanese folk art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD and was popularized in the mid-1900s. It has since then evolved into a modern art form. The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of material into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, and as such the use of cuts or glue are not considered to be origami.

A plane

This is a military air-force plane. It goes really fast. I like my drawing.

I did it nicely, by looking at my book Transportation. In my collection, I have 6 toy planes.

I like planes because they can fly. They can fly because they have powerful motor (engine) and they have wings.

This is a leaf

This is a leaf. L-e-a-f. It is a tracing.

You take a leaf, and you put it underneath the paper. And then just s-h-a-d-e it.

And, it's ready!

And, I like it!

And it's really g-o-o-d.

I learnt how to do this from my class. Miss Abeenia taught me how to do it.

Roman numbers

Eaoooya. Roman numbers are too difficult. But I like them.

There are Arabic numbers and there are Roman numbers. India has given the world zero number. India is famous because it gave the number zero. And zero plus zero is how-much?

In the Roman number system, I is one, II is two, and III is three.

IV is four, because it is one less than V (five). V is five. VI is six (one more than five). VII is seven. VIII is eight. IX (one less than ten) is nine. X is ten.

Now we'll go further: XI is eleven. XX is twenty. XXX is thirty. XL is forty. L is fifty. LX is sixty. LXX is seventy. XC is ninty. And C is hundred.

Now we'll carry on to two hundred, and three hundred, four hundred and five hundred: two hundred is CC, three hundred is CCC, four hundred is CD, and five hundred is D.

Six hundred is DC. Seven hundred is DCC. Eight hundred is DCCC. Nine hundred is MC. One thousand is M. One thousand one hundred (eleven hundred) is MC. Fourteen hundred is MCD. Fifteen hundred is MD.

Sixteen hundred is MDC. Sixteen hundred six hundred sixty-six is MDCLXVI. And eighteen hundred eight hundred and eighty-eight is MDCCCLXXXVIII.

I like these numbers. Because they are n-i-c-e!

About a scenery

There are many birds (here) and there are also many mountaints. (The sun) is setting, and this all is the reflection of the sun in the water. There is a coconut tree, and a boat.

I saw such a picture in the school, painted by someone from the second standard.

In Goa, there are a lot of coconut trees and hills, I like the coconut trees because they give us water and shade. I know an uncle who is writing a book about coconut craft and it will be released in 2009 (I don't know which month).

Showing (off) my cars

"What I collect" by you.

"What I collect" by you.

"What I collect" by you.

These are my photos when I went to the Museum of Christian Art. I went because I wanted to show my cars. They called me. I had a nice time.

Some other children were showing their Ben10 things and their cars. Coin-collections and key-chains. It was a Young Collectors' Day.

About a helicopter and a motorcycle

It is about a two different drawings, about a motorcycle and a helicopter. I was sitting down, and I drew it today evening (Nov 26, 2009 or 26.11.2009) and I am very happy about my helicopter.

This evening, I saw a parashute gliding (paragliding) in the sky. And then it was really amazing. I wanted to see it again, but I didn't see it. I called my grandpa, to tell him that it was there, but he didn't see it. He only heard it.
