Have recently been promoted from the Primary to class VI and now am in the Middle school. I am quite excited to be in the new grade.
I have been counseled by my teachers to be respectful to my seniors and not to pick up a fight with them because in the middle school we would be the junior most. In the Primary we were the senior most class hence we were looked upon by our juniors.
We were also told that some seniors may try to bully us and so we must be careful. Anyway, we are ready for the new grade and look forward to the transition. On the first day, in Class VI, our teacher asked us to write about our likes and dislikes. I thought and thought and realized that there were in fact a few things which I disliked and liked.
I am a boy with very strong likes and dislikes. My parents have always to me that good people are honest, simple, and kind. Therefore, I dislike those who pretend and are artificial.
My father strongly believes that such person are like snakes who are ready to bite you behind your back. As a matter of fact, people, who are artificial, give themselves away very easily, It ism difficult to judge them because their vibes are negative and can be felt, you do not get impressed, with their hypocrisy.

Situations bring to the form their true character. My father says that one must be watchful of such people, I thus, avoid making friends who are not genuine.
I love reading books, especially fiction. I love to read Enid Blyton, Har Boys and Harry Potter. When the last book of Harry Potter was release went to the Full Circle shop at Khan Market, early in the morning, at 5,a.m. as I wanted to be the first one in my school to get my hands on those much talked about book.
Though, I am a keen reader I do not enjoy reading Newspapers at all are often scolded by my parents and teachers form keeping myself abreast with current affairs. I can not help it because I hail a very vivid imagination therefore stories and novels interest me more. Perhaps, I am a literary kind of a person.
I love playing chess and most outdoor activities in outdoor games, football the most. Somehow, I have never liked the game of cricket through all my friends are crazy about it. I also enjoy cycling and love to go on cycling expeditions.
I like to see the television but dislike watching most of the television serial. My mother and sister enjoy watching them and usually we have heated discussions on the uselessness of these ‘Sas Bahoo’ serials. I find the disgusting and a waste of time. I like seeing the Discovery channel and ESPN sports, I also like to see English movies which my sister hates; anyway this is what I am!
Nature fascinates me and every year I try to go to a hill station where I can wander in the woods away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
I dislike going to Chandni Chowk and Karol Bagh, for shopping especially with mother and sister but I do enjoy going to the Malls and do window shopping I dislike teachers, who think they are always right, those, who start yelling at you, at the drop of a hat.
Such teachers make me feel sick. Teachers, who are like your friends, are the ones, whom I respect the most. My mother always tries to explain to me that in life you have to live with all kinds of people and face many situations which may not be to your liking.
I think, when I grow up, I will learn to be more tolerant and patient. I will accept people as they are but be careful in trusting them. A piece of advice to all, you may like or dislike things, which is natural, but never have very strong likes and dislikes.
Man is but a bundle of peculiar tastes and manners—likes and dislikes. Some relish a dish of meat while others hate it. Curd is such a useful thing and most people like it but there are people who hate it like anything. Similarly, I, too, have my own likes and dislikes.

Of all the seasons I like winter the best. It is a season of picnics and hard work. I can sit up long hours poring over my books in the stillness of the night. I simply dread the summer season with the blazing sun, intense heat and the dry hot winds. It is the season when we perspire profusely and the breeze of the fan does very little to relieve the discomfort we feel. The rainy season too, is a nuisance. I dislike it because it spoils the clothes I wear and forces me to stay indoors.
I dislike people who tell a lie for their selfish gain. My blood boils when I see people dying to cheat others. Such people are very harmful to the society. Trust begets trust, the say. These people poison the atmosphere with foul suspicion. I love frank, straightforward people. They might appear to be rough at first but they are the people who never do any one any harm. It is but for go these people that the world is a place worth living.
I do not like to waste my spare time in idle talks or in backbiting others. It is not in my nature to speak ill of others. I hate people who always find faults with others. These are the pests of the society and I would like to keep them at an arm’s length. I like to spend my leisure in reading a good book or listening to light music or a skit or a drama on the radio. During holidays I love to travel and visit places of historical interest and thus add to my general knowledge. The scenes and sights of nature please me. The gay company of my friends cheers me. It is a sort of tonic for me. Lastly, I dislike being sermonized by elders. It is like swallowing a bitter pills. I understand my duties and responsibilities and I do not like to be told to do this thing or that. It is for this very reason that I cannot stand the rebuke of my teachers, however well-intentioned they may be. What I like most is sympathy and understanding from my elders.
