Q. 1: You recently interacted with Dr Kiran Bedi. Tell us about that.
Ans. It was really great and memorable moment of my life. The session was very engaging. One day I was watching Dr Kiran Bedi’s live session and I was thinking of how to participate. And then I saw one participation form. I filled that form and I waited for 2-3 days. After 2-3 days someone called me and said ‘You are selected for Dr Kiran Bedi’s live book reading session.’ I was delighted and grateful for that.
There I met other participants and the Book reading coordinators and the team gave us instructions and we did rehearsal one day before. On the day of the live session, I was feeling proud and in the meeting, Dr Kiran Bedi asked us some questions which I answered confidently and actively.
Q. 2: What are all the things that you are enthusiastic about?
Ans. I am enthusiastic about:
- I like to entertain my book-reading fellow participants with jokes
- I like making videos of my Hard Work
- I love drawing and I have various beautiful drawings
Q. 3: How was the experience of online classes for you? Which subject did you face the most difficulty in understanding over online classes?
Ans. My first experience with online classes was very difficult because it was like a new thing for me. But after two three months, I declared it as my daily routine and I never faced difficulty in any subject through online classes because our teacher teaches us so well that we understand everything and it feels the same sitting in school.
Q. 4: Besides your studies, what other things did you do online?
Ans. Yes, I have done so many things apart from my studies like I have subscribed to so many channels of army interviews to know which type of questions judges ask. I want to join the Indian Army. And I have also subscribed to many channels of IPS interviews so that I will acquire knowledge for both ARMY and I.P.S.
Q. 5: Did you read any eBooks during this time? Which devices did you use?
Ans. Yes of course. I read an ebook earlier of Dr Kiran Bedi, ‘Making of the Top Cop’. It was so impressive as it describes Dr Kiran Bedi’s life story and her successful IPS journey. The device I used for reading Ebooks is my laptop. I found books on google and then I downloaded them from there.
Q. 6: Did you miss your school during the lockdown period?
Ans. Yes definitely, I missed my school very much during this pandemic. The fascinating garden of my school which always satisfied me with the great fragrance of its flowers, I missed that. Also, my school drawing classes, swimming pool, sports period and so on.
Q. 7: How did you keep in touch with your friends during the lockdown?
Ans. I tried so many ways to keep in touch with my friends. I made a group of my friends on WhatsApp so that we could talk about ourselves, families and our school homework. I wrote them emails. I also started talking with them through video calls and we all play video games together.
Q. 8: How was the support from your parents during COVID?
Ans. My parents encouraged me to go ahead in life. They also said that if school are closed then no problem, you have to study online now. And due to COVID, I also got the opportunity to spend a lot of time with my family and they are supporting me in each & every possible way.
