The Dream Camp – By Two

A rhymed rendition of the write-up ‘Awesomeness 2.0′


All looked forward to the 29th of May,

For it was the much-awaited MAD camp day!

From Thara, the home for street kids,

They, for a weekend, waved their goodbye-bids.

The kids were all with spirits on the high

And they boarded the bus to depart at five

They’s reached Divya Resorts at seven

For the weekend, it was to be their Heaven!

Though they were in a mood to yawn,

Were excited about this splendid morn.

‘Art of Living’ was opening the day

Oh! Kick-start in an energizing way.

Volunteers bonded and set their teams

Not to mention their trademark-screams.

This was followed by ‘Creative Movements’

Indeed they’re memories of treasured moments.

The clock was already going one past;

A so perfect time to break the fast.

A master-piece of the chefs-the lunch,

Was waiting on the table for the kids to munch.

Followed by  a personality development session,

And what a great way to acquire a vision!

The kids like adding rhythm to their feet

And the dance workshop at dusk, gave them the heat.

After electrifying moments and energies lost,

The kinds’ enthu was draining too fast.

The immediate remedy was the swimming pool;

This brought the kids and us back to our cool.

Things were going great and up straight

And now the clock’s already struck eight.

It was the time to gather and dine,

And to close the day that was so fine!

With the day so exhausting and tired dead

Mods kids had to be carried to the bed.

Thus so fast a pleasant day was gone

But a night too fast and then it’s next dawn.

A loud screech that hit our ears

Woke up the kids and all our peers

‘Art of living’ was going until eight.

Now for the breakfast, the kids could not wait.

Then it was time for the volunteers,

To again bond with their cute li’l dears!

And an hours’ session for those smart chaps

to literally and figuretively wear thinking caps.

Followed a wondrous workshop on Science.

Were the kids bored? Nah! No Signs!!

Hydraulic shooter and air-propelled car

Surely stretched their thoughts beyond afar!

It was one and guess? Time to eat.

With yummy desserts to beat the heat.

Post lunch were two scintillating hours

For their confidennce levels were taken to towers!

With concentration, memory and confidence boosting,

We could see great aims and desires roosting.

We’d hit the swimming pool by twilight

And drenched ourself in joy until the night.

The day came to an end in the usual style:

Dance, Dine and hit the bed in a while!

In the morning we were greeted by Sun’s rays

And the usual ‘Art of Living’ ways.

After the nice refreshing breakfast

Being seated was a thing of the past.

Rappling off rocks and crossing the water

Kept the kids mood hotter and hotter!

Be it zorbing or the commando nets

More and more excited many a kid gets.

Now the kinds were kinda exhausted

And then, the lunch to heve ’em reboosted

Followed a  class on speaking to  a crowd.

Made some MAD kins, on the stage proud!

And then the herald: All ye li’l men. Come hither!

Here shall you see creatures that sizzle and slither!

The snakes,  to the eyes were sure a treat.

These without legs will take you to your feet.

The Cobra, the Rat snake and the Viper

Left the kinds and volunteers going hyper!

Amidst this, a car comes to a stop

And lo! It’s the cake’s icing atop!

Varun Sandesh -the great Star-Face

For the famed and fabled ‘Happy Days’

Pleasant mannered and so kind was he

That left the kids in a bonding spree!

The camp was slowly coming to a close-

A time for MAD to strike it’s royal pose!

The emitter of screeches now turned to speeches

And the kind words of the Father-To hearts it reaches!

The kids each were given a small gift

And also a constructive spirit lift!

Also some melodies and body swings;

Never before we’d seen such things!

Now the stage was set to be on fire

Heralded by a car’s screeching tyre.

The DJ’s numbers started the waves.

Gotta move your feet. No other ways!

Though the music from the speakers would stop

Our feet could not help but continue to hop.

After getting there wild like a beast

We closed the camp with a sumptous feast.

And the feel in everyone was nothing less-

Than this one profound word -“AWESOMENESS”

    There is verry less chance that I will be in the camp pics Junior. Err…. I am the one who took most of ’em. And I am one of the fortunate souls who knew about MAD very early thru Glo, even before MAD -HYD ws conceptualized, and the not-so-fortunate soul who denied being a part of it at its inception.

    Now, times have changed and so have I. Now, I luv being there….. :)
