MUMBAI UNDER WATER…AN ANNUAL FEATURE!
-Vansh Chheda 9A
After a break of few days, heavy rains returned to Mumbai and its neighbouring areas on the morning of 1st July, affecting road and rail traffic. It was a wet and slippery start for Mumbai, as the city experienced heavy showers early in the morning. The rain, which had gone on a break for a few days, came back with a bang — causing trouble for Mumbaikars once again. As I stay at Dadar Hindmata which is a flood prone area, the water entered my house. A reminder of the 2005 deluge! The miserable situation that we, Mumbaikars face every year makes me think….Will this situation improve????

LEADERS OF DON BOSCO
-Ethan Dias 10 D
The student council of Don Bosco high School, Matunga visited Don Bosco Lonavala on 11th July 2019 for an overnight leadership camp. We traveled there to camp together and imbibe the qualities of a true leader.
When we reached Don Bosco Lonavla, the Salesian fathers and brothers of the place welcomed us. They arranged for our accommodation and the food and planned for the different sessions at various venues like the refectory, AV room, the hall and outdoors. The trek and the movie were the two most awaited events of the day. The different sessions drew us the council members much closer and strengthened our bond. Love, positivity, responsibility and to lead by example were the important lessons on leadership that we acquired here. The inspirational leadership camp of 2019-2020 offered the batch – motivation, togetherness, selflessness, impartiality and other cherished qualities. Together we march to lead under the guidance and inspiration of Don Bosco!

INDIA’S WORLD CUP DREAM ENDETH!
-Alvin D’souza 9A
On Wednesday 10th July India was playing against New Zealand.It was not just a match, it was an emotion for thousands of Indian fans traveling from across the world. There were brief moments when it seemed their side might tide through, but in the there was heartbreak. India’s striking world cup campaign of 5 ODI centuries by Rohit Sharma who is titled as the (Hitman), 3 continuous half centuries by Virat Kohli who is titled as the (King Kohli) and an unbelievable hat-trick by the bowler Mohammed Shami eventually ended in the final over of the semi-final against New Zealand but it kept alive by an outstanding innings by Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni. But in reality, the show was over a whole lot earlier, when India’s heavy-scoring top order of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and the Indian captain Virat Kohli returned to the pavilion. After the final over New Zealand achieved their victory and earned a place in the finals against another very strong team England. Thus ended the Indian World Cup dream!
