India’s Independence Day is on August 15. It makes me think how our country got freedom.
I think a lot about Gandhiji and how he fought for our country’s freedom.
It also makes me think about my freedom. When I was in school, we were given lot of study and homework.
There were some things that I didn’t like to do. Like writing continuously – Hindi, English, GK. Ma’am explained slowly, which was boring to me.
I would finish writing a page but Ma’am would tell only four or five words. And the questions were very easy. I wanted something more difficult and challenging.
We had to study for six or seven hours. And coming back home, we had homework. At school, we went to play games in hot sun. It was fun but I used to have headache and feel tired. In our games class there was a huge trampoline but Ma’am didn’t allow us to jump on it.
I didn’t like to study Hindi at all. But Ma’am taught us Hindi a lot. It was one-hour long. In our library class, Ma’am chose the book and gave us. I wanted to take the book that I liked to read.
In my home-school, no one forces me to do anything. If I don’t want to do Hindi, Mamma doesn’t force me. But she reads Hindi stories to me. Also, If I want to see TV, Mamma lets me do that. In home-school, I can also do science experiments. I get lot of time to do my breakfast but at school, I only got 20 or 30 mins. But, this does not mean I’ll always see TV. I paint, I read many books, I now write for the blog. I play a lot.
I like to dance. I’m learning western dance but I want to learn Kathak too. For Independence Day, I’m going to dance with my friends on the song – Vande Mataram.
If we get freedom, we can do anything we want. But it doesn’t mean we can eat 20 chocolates at a time. I hope you now understand what freedom means to me in home school as compared to earlier in school.
