Recently we celebrated “Mud Day” in school, during which we got to play in a large mud pool. Using coconut shells we made a number of mud-idlis, and even drew mud paintings. I splashed water on my friends.

While I was running in the mud pool, I suddenly slipped and fell into the muddy water. What fun it was! I could not stop myself from rolling in the mud. The big boys were pushing and pulling each other and finally they fell into the pool too. Then a football match was held in the mud pool. After that, we went to a nearby river and bathed. The water was really cold.

This pleasant experience would remain in my memory throughout my life. Our school taught us to explore and enjoy nature in a natural way.
