There are five seasons: summer, winter, monsoon, spring and autumn. But the spring season is my favourite season.
During the spring season the days are longer but warmer too. Trees start blooming with buds and buds start blooming as well as lavishing the beautiful sweet smell. Bees
and butterflies start to hum to inform us that the summer season is approaching. Birds chirp merrily as they migrate toward the warmer habitat.
Thus, the spring season offers so many great pleasures. Nature is the wonder. That’s why I like the spring season very much.

My favorite veg dish is a popular Indian meal called “Palak Paneer.“
This tasty dish has a creamy spinach sauce with flavorful spices like cumin, coriander, and garam masala, giving it a delicious taste. The main ingredient, paneer (cottage cheese), adds a smooth texture that goes well with the spinach. Palak Paneer looks beautiful too, with its bright green color. Each bite of this dish is a delightful experience that leaves you feeling warm and satisfied. It goes great with rice or naan, making it a complete and yummy meal.
In short, Palak Paneer is a special dish for me because it combines healthy spinach with tasty paneer and a mix of spices, making it an unforgettable vegetarian option. Its wonderful flavors and textures make it a timeless classic that I crave and enjoy every time I eat it.
Write a paragraph about your favourite ‘BOOK’.
(Points: Name of the book, its author, its theme, characters in it, what you like, what didn’t like)
“The God of Small Things”
One of my favorite Indian books is “The God of Small Things” by Arundhati Roy. It’s a captivating story set in Kerala, India, about a family and their struggles with love and society. The main characters are twins, Estha and Rahel, whose lives are deeply affected by a tragic event. I love how beautifully the author describes the landscapes and culture of Kerala. The way she tells the story by jumping between the past and present adds a nostalgic feeling. However, sometimes it’s a bit hard to follow the non-linear storytelling, especially at the beginning. Still, the touching and unforgettable tale makes “The God of Small Things” a truly exceptional literary masterpiece.
