Alpine had organized a picnic to the students of Std-III & IV on Friday the 12th of December, 2014 to “GRAMEENA CAMP” near Nelamangala – a perfect place for one to have fun and frolic and at the same time enjoy the traditional games.

We reached around 10 in the morning and thoroughly enjoyed the ride in the bus. The ambience was something worth watching. A typical village outlook made us feel we were in a village. Soon we were divided into groups and each group members were given different colour bands to distinguish ourselves from the other groups. After breakfast, we played lagori (lingocha), catapult and various other games.

Next we tried churning buttermilk, using pounding sticks and some of us made wooden dolls. We enjoyed sowing ragi seeds. Students also enjoyed pottery; tractor ride and swinging from branch of a tree to another almost like the monkeys. We relished sumptuous ‘n’ mouthwatering South Indian Food-we realized only at 4 o’ clock that the fun had ended and we had to return back …. It was truly a memorable picnic.

Vrishank (Std-IV)
