As the clouds ,evening fog and streetlights of the town blurred the vision in the sky, we kept wondering whether all the effort to arrive in school for “Star Gazing” on that chilly evening of Saturday, the 8th of November was worth it.
While the stars continued to hide, the moon turned out to be a friendly
The images of the moon through the blurred sky with all its craters was distinctly visible. The vertical bands running through the center of Jupiter were also a spectacuar sight. The reason why prominent constellations could not be seen was because the stars subtend almost a zero degree angle on telescope, and therefore cannot be magnified.
On the whole it was an exciting evening.
Some time back, a few students made a trip to the Ashoka Hotel to see “Tiranga,” a tribute to the Indian flag. The programme was inaugurated by President Abdul Kalam, and included a composition by Javed Akhtar, Zakir Hussain, and Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma and Pandit Janji. Each maestro composed a piece on either one of the colours or the chakra of the flag and in the end we had a ‘Jugal Bandi’. All this was interspersed by poems written by Javed
All of us enjoyed this trip a lot as the music was magical. We also spent a few energetic moments scurrying around, getting autographs! All in all, it was a delightful evening.
