Back after a long break - Writing of Soft Toys

Here is something from Samhith's pen after a long long time...... This was triggered by my wish to donate his soft toys, considering that he doesnt play with them anymore, and his insistence that he NEEDS them!

To prove that he still can play with them, he not only arranged them near his bed, he also made up a story about them! He didnt really want to write it down, though,but did when I promised him that I would post it before I posted my own posts on Hampi, and that he could keep his soft toys... for now!

So, here is his work.... first the pic, so you get an idea about what he writes about.......

These are actually two pics he took... I merged them to give you a better look.... 

and heres another pic taken by him...

Finally, here is the story.....

For those of you who are having trouble following that handwriting which becomes a scrawl towards the end, here is the story..... typed by me...

Its Christmas and here's a family waiting for Santa Claus

Here Grandfather bear is relaxing on a cushion, here's Winnie the pooh nicely having a nap on his father's lap. Here his two sons Michel and John playing together happily and waiting for Santa Claus and make a long looooooong wish, Krishna was waiting to play a prank on Santa! Policeman Dev has got a case! The case is to find Santa Claus! Squirrel Oliver is jumping on Krishna, Dalmatian Johnsons is having a nap, Tiger, Tiger's jumping has stopped and he has stuck himself so that he doesnt bump into Santa! Tweety and her father have slept. Just then they woke up! and then Santa Claus came!
Well, so thats it.... What do you think?


  1. Well, I think there is serious potential here! Keep at it Samhith and don't, I repeat DON'T, let Amma give away your soft toys to anybody for any cause however grand. If you don't want to play with them put them in a box and keep them away just like the gollu toys are kept away. When you become as big as your Appa these toys will remind you of all the wonderful stories you made up about them.

  2. @Usha: needless to say, Samhith is thrilled to hear that!! Unfortunately the issue here is space... and u know how things stand... i just boxed a whole set of books and sent them to sandhya, since there was no place here... will have to do that with all the toys too now :)

  3. Excellent. Looking at his first story (may be I have missed his earlier writtings), he will go far. Keep it up - Samhith. Well done !!.

    By the way what is his pen-name ? Junior Wanderer may be right for blog to show his pedigree, but think of something apt for the budding story writter.

  4. Samhith, if there's a sequel to the story, would love to read...did the characters get to relax on the same bed the next day? What did Krishna do when he saw Santa? Did Santa disappear again?

  5. Many thanks for the exciting blog posting! I really enjoyed reading it, you are a brilliant writer. I actually added your blog to my favorites and will look forward for more updates. Great Job, Keep it up.. :)teddy bears for babies
