“What I like about Durga Poojo? Shhh, dont tell Mum,” by 9 year old Rijoy Goswami (Orko) from UK
Hey everyone, your best friend Sara here. With Durga Pooja in the air, I am excited to publish one write up by kids on the theme every day.
Today I am sharing the writing of 9 year old Rijoy Goswami (Orko) from UK who has kept his Bengali roots alive. Grateful to the Little Writers Studio, UK for not only sharing the write up in English and Bengali, but also the beautiful Bengali Potochitro art by the talented artist Parul, who lives in Pingla with her family.
When he is not swinging from a tree or kicking a ball, Rijoy enjoys reading, designing the most intricate Lego feats of engineering, imagining about fearful battles and exotic legends of the past, playing videogames on his ever changing plethora of electronic gizmos and of late has taken a shy to writing poetry. He also goes to school at Babraham CEVC, near Cambridge where he studies in year 5.
What I like about Durga Poojo is offering prayers, the cultural events but what I like the most is the delicious food, that I can eat everyday during poojo!
Shhhhh! please don’t tell mum! She will be really angry 🙂
Hey, your friend Sara here again! Enjoyed reading?
