Hi, my name is Ronak. I’m a Class X student studying at St. Theresa’s School, Mangalore. My hobbies are playing football and cricket.  When I get free time  I scribble on papers. My mom encourages me a lot in everything I do.

When I was in VIth standard I began writing inverse. One day, my granny bought a bottle of 7-UP for the guests to serve. On that bottle I found some words printed inversely and I tried to read it. At the beginning I failed to read, but I did not stop my efforts. Suddenly I thought of keeping it in front of the mirror and I succeeded in reading it right! I tried to write inverse after reading that slogan. Now I can write 13 to 15 words per minute in 3 languages, i.e. English, Hindi and Kannada.

Here is my poem titled "The Jallianwala Bagh Tragedy" in a mirror image as well as in  normal text, I hope you will enjoy reading inversely!!

The Jallianwala Bagh Tragedy

A place from here far in the North,
While writing a page,
Had caught my thought.

‘Tis now a place, of great historical grace,
For many a Indian’s, were
Killed in the freedom’s chase.

‘Twas then that General Dyer,
Had issued a proclamation,
To prohibit the gatherings and procession.

So laid together, the Indian
People a protest; that had
Put the Rulers wisdom to the test.

But had no heart, the history books said,
For the people by one voice,
Were laid to death.

Their deathbed, now a place,
Which has received historical grace,
For many Indian’s, hath died in this one place.

Dear Mr. Ronak Pereira,

I read your poetry titled, "The Jallianwala Bagh Tragedy" and it is well written. You have the makings of a poet and I urge you to develop this in-born talents that you have and write books on poetry.

Sadly, I would have liked to develop these skills. However, I am not cut out for it and just concentrate on writing, wherever I can.

I am glad to know that you like to play football and cricket. Football is a truly an international sport that is played the length and breadth of this globe and could be considered as a poor man's sport. It is very, very popular and Pele is to football, what Sir Don Bradman is to cricket.

I wish you all the best and success in your endevours.

Wonderful work Ronak. I remember your paintings on this site a little while ago. Have you tried mirroring pictures just for fun?

You are very talented. Keep up the interest growing high in every direction. My husband who is your dad's 'Chaddi dost' said you look like a Mini replica of your dad Joseph. Violet, good job in nurturing your kid's multi-faceted talents.

That was Ronak in 1919. There were no langoti monkies then in human form in India. All castes and religions, faiths were one human, Indians. Today langoti monkies unleash terror on any pretext and when authorities try to give relief to the victims, they hinder it by declaring strikes/bandhs. Even today, when these langoti monkies decide to smuggle humans they work together in brotherliness without identifying themselves as Hindus or Muslims.

All the best for your literary career, Ronak.
