That’s me…

P1180138Shibila Nargees says, “Silver is my favourite colour, and ice-cream, my favourite food. To me there is nothing more gratifying than dancing and listening to songs. I believe in myself and aspire to be a doctor one day.

Here is a poem my Shibila.

P1100192I am unpredictable
And may surprise and hurt you
With my shades, twists
And the various stages.

Without them I am plain, boring.
So let it all be there.
They make me ‘me’,
Without them I am lifeless.

Though you may feel I am rude
I am so simple.
Do love me
In both grief and gaiety.


Little Wishes

This time we will go for a poem by Runaisa. She likes to express herself through thoughtful verses. Even routine class discussions and activities get reflected in her poems. Hope you enjoy this one.

Sitting in the crowded classroom
Near my silent friends,
I feel the world so big
Without anyone to talk to me.

People come and go
Without telling me a word.
I wish God created someone
For me to talk!

I gaze up the ceiling
Of the world of studies,
Hoping they would know me.
Minutes pass like hours,
And seconds, like minutes
Sadly smiling at me.

Now I feel God understands
What I said –
All I need from you is
Just a smile!


Art by Asna

This  inaugural post is by one of the budding artists of the class, Aysha Asna B.V. who is very passionate about drawing, painting and crafts. She has conducted art exhibitions in the school and has participated in several drawing competitions. The illustrations in her literature notebook are apt proofs to her artistic skills.

Here we feature two of her works using crayons.

Here we go!

Hello world,

Welcome to Whimsical Souls!

The blog

This is a dream come true for a group of students based somewhere in the Middle East (clues: the header and the above image). Every year we try to accomplish something out of syllabus, something to tag the particular batch. Once it was class magazines, last year it was a documentary film, and this year we have decided to embrace the modern technology.

This is a humble attempt. Though we can’t anticipate what challenges and possibilities await us, we are sure this is one great step/leap.

For the time being the blog will be a platform for the 34 students to express their feelings, experiences and talents. We’ll let you know more about us through the posts.

The members

They are the students of the present class 10 batch of our school. And we wish to invite the students from the previous batches too. Glad that they are all talented in one way or the other – there are good writers, singers, artists, stage performers, athletes, dancers etc. That makes my work quite easy as each one of them is going to contribute in their areas of interest.

As their teacher, I will just be the administrator of the blog. In the future, when I could handle it no  more, the entire responsibility may be handed over to some of the interested and committed students.


Right now there are no set rules, but again, if situations demand, we may go for some. The entries can be anything worth publishing – the original creations by the students.

There will be a separate page to explain the eligibility to be a contributor where we may include the rules.

So, bless us, and support us through your comments, suggestions and likes!
