It is said that language is the light that glows in our mind, the garb that we dress up our thoughts in. It can be limiting, yet ever-so-pervasive….an oxymoron that is so true in the globally progressive world of today. Read on for a couple of real-life ‘language whiz-kids’…...
Amishi Khanna, grade 8, passionné par la langue française…. (read as passionate about the French language).
She was a participant in the finals of Concours d’orthographe (the International French Spell Bee Competition), where she won a Gold. Incidentally, Amishi is a US citizen and her passion for languages is what makes her extraordinary. To add to that, she also pens down soul-stirring poems and has an ear for French music.
Saksham Kaushik, an unconventional and innovative essayist from CS-1.
He secured the third position in the prestigious ‘The Eye Level English Story Writing Competition’ organized by Daekyo. The contest is organised every summer and the winning essay is selected from thousands of entries from across continents.
These are just two of the exceptionally talented kids from a reservoir of ‘language wizards’. It certainly makes us realise that we do not always need a wand to create magic, because sometimes, words are all we need!
