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.


Ronak
