The Conversation Corner #2
When Siddharth isn’t curled up with an Enid Blyton book, he’s dressing up as his favourite character, Moonface, for his school’s online book week. And when he’s not doing that, he’s painting pictures of tulips, poppies and boats that are organised in files and stored safely in his father’s office room. Sometimes, he lets his colour pencils run free on the page, and says he likes to figure out whether he drew a parrot or a peacock only when he’s finished drawing! But he likes playing with his little sister, most of all.
We had a small chat with him, and here’s what he told us -
Q: If you could meet your favourite author, what would you ask them?
A: If I could meet Enid Blyton, I would ask her how many books she’s written, and if she says a lot of books, that would make me happy!
Q: If you could change the ending of your favourite book, what would it be?
A: I wouldn’t change the ending of my favourite book ‘The Enchanted Wood’ by Enid Blyton! Maybe I would change its title. But, in my second favourite book ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ by Roald Dahl, in the end, I’d make George’s grandma grow wings and fly away because she’s very evil in the book.
Q: Are you finding school fun in the pandemic?
A: It’s a little weird, and not as much fun because I can’t see my friends and teachers always. But, this week, it’s fun because we’re having a book week. They extend our classes and I get to read the ‘Billionaire Boy.’ It has 299 pages! But I don’t think it’ll take me much longer to finish it.
Q: How do you keep in touch with your friends, then?
A: I’ve given my friends my house number, sometimes they come and knock on my door to call me down. We play on the merry-go-round and the monkey bars, and I take my ‘Hot Wheels’ cars down, to launch them down the slide.
Q. Have you been doing anything new, lately?
A: Yes, learning Indian music! And I’ve started studying 3 languages - English, Hindi and Kannada!
