"Living Statues of Marina Beach" By Pappu
This is about the walk on the beach. There is a meeting. I was so happy. I advised my mom to take me.
She said, "Ok, I will take you". I was so happy.
At the night, I did not sleep. I was thinking to go to the beach. I dreamed.
I waked my mom, "Its time!".
She said "I feel sleepy.ahhhh".
"Its time to go to the beach", I shouted.
My Mom said "OK".
We went to catch train. So, we started to walk. My Mom said, "My legs are paining. I think we can go in Auto." I said to my Mom, "Mom, What is this Mom. Even not my legs are paining. OK, I will listen to you". We went to catch a train. And we bought the ticket.
Then, we started to go in the train. It was a happy day. But, I feel sleepy. At that time my Mom said, "Get up!Get up!we need to go to other station." I said, "Ok. "
That time it was our station. My Mom pulled me and jumped from the train. We went to the other railway station, It was going up and up. So we saw all the things. At that time, it was our station. In the board,it had written "CHENNAI BEACH". I jumped from the train. My mom took me.
And we went near to the statue "KANNAGI". It is Kannagi's statue. And my Eric came. I was enjoying. He looked at me and smiled. He took a cloth . He put the cloth on his head.
We have to pull it. We pulled. But I did not pull. He talked as Kannagi. I was happy to listen Kannagi's story. I thought it was an awesome day. Other man talked about Kannagi in Tamil.
I did not like Kannagi burning Madurai. I liked kannagi's speech to the king. And, I like her, as she is a brave lady.
Then we started to walk to other statue, which is named was Subash Chandra Bose. An uncle talked about him. And I saw he was wearing glass. I liked the Subash chandra bose as I have a friend called Rubyone Chandra Bose. Two people talked about Subash Chandra Bose.
And,some of the people came and asked "Can I come and observe?". And Eric said, "Yea, I love you to come and speak about Subash Chandra Bose. If you know about him, say about him."
They said , "I will see in the paper and read".
I did not like it. He is elder. But he did not learned to speak without seeing the paper. How can it be? Even, I, can speak a big speech. Yes, Republic day I talked about 3 pages.
The we moved to other statue. My legs started to pain. But I was brave.
This statue was about G.U.Pope. He looked beautiful. We like the speech of this statue.He acted beautifully. And it was a big statue. I saw the statue for many many times.When he was talking, I was seeing the statue. At the last moment, I saw him. He He smiled at me.
We went to the next statue. It is Thiruvalluvar.You know Thiruvalluvar?
He was a man, who was beautiful too! He was having a beard. He had pen and panai olai. I liked it.
At that time, we went to the next statue. It is fifth statue. The statue's name was Bharathidasan. Eric sir talked about Bhrathidasan, As he put the cloth on him.
Then my mom came. She talked as Bhrathidasan. I though she will be scared because she will not be brave in home, as she was shy.
At the last, I sang, "Achchamillai! Achchamillai!!". I sang it as loud as I could. My mom was shocked to see my loud song. I saw I surprised my Mom.
So, this was the last statue, "Avvaiyar". A man spoke of her. At that time, Police came and scared me.
Then Eric said, "Let us go there and give speech". One man came. "I will", he said. And he spoke. It was finished. It was a beautiful day. He spoke about Avvaiyar beautifully. I like her.
And I like to introduce my name amd my mother's name.
My name is Khurinji. And My mother's name is Sandanamullai.We loved the place very much.We thanked Eric and we came back home.
பின்குறிப்பு: கடந்த ஞாயிறு சென்னை வாரத்துக்காக நடைபெற்ற 'வாழும் சிலைகள் நடை"க்குச் சென்றிருந்தோம். காலையில் ஏழரைக்கு மணிக்கு மெரினாவின் கண்ணகி சிலையிலிருந்து ஆரம்பித்து, ஒவ்வொரு சிலையாக ஆறு சிலைகள் வரையிலான ஒரு மணி நேர நடை. பப்புவிடம் சொன்னதும் போக விருப்பம் தெரிவித்தாள். (அவளது கதைசொல்லும் ஆசிரியராயிற்றே!!) காலை ஏழரைக்கு அங்கு இருக்க வேண்டும் என்றால் ஐந்து மணிக்கு எழுந்து கிளம்பினால்தான் சாத்தியம். அலாரம் வைத்துவிட்டு படுத்தேன். என்ன ஆச்சர்யம்!! அலாரம் அடிக்க ஒரு நிமிடம் முன்பாகவே எழுந்து எனக்கு "குட்மார்னிங்" என்றதுதான் நம்பவே முடியவில்லை....மற்ற நாட்களில், ஆறு மணியிலிருந்து அரைமணிநேரம் வரை கடப்பாரை போட்டு ஆளை கிளப்ப வேண்டும்...ம்ம்ம்...:-)
சென்னை கோட்டை வரை சென்று பறக்கும் ரயிலில் அங்கிருந்து திருவல்லிக்கேணிக்கு சென்றோம். பிறகு, திருவல்லிக்கேணியிலிருந்து வேளச்சேரி வரை அதே ரயிலில் சென்றோம். அதாவது கதாபாத்திரங்களே பேசுவதாக ஆங்கிலத்தில் தமிழிலும் பேசுவார்கள். 'பாரதிதாசனாக தமிழில் யாராவது பேசுகிறீர்களா 'என்றபோது நான் சில வார்த்தைகள் பேசினேன். தொடர்ந்து, பப்பு, "அச்சமில்லை அச்சமில்லை" பாடலை (பாரதிதாசனின் சிலை கீழ் நின்று!)பாடினாள்.சென்றுவந்த அனுபவத்தைப் பற்றி எழுதச் சொன்னேன். வழக்கம்போல, அவள் சொல்ல சொல்ல நான் எழுதவேண்டியதாகிவிட்டது.
