‘Maheshganj – A Home Away From Home’ A travel story by 9 year old Bookosmian from Kolkata
Hey everyone, your best friend Sara here! Welcome to my ‘Places with Sara‘ section
I can’t wait to pack my bags and head out. Until then lets read through these wonderful travel memories from kids. Let’s keep our wish lists ready!
9 year old Vivaan Sanghvi gives us a super account of his holiday at Maheshganj, which is near Kolkata. Have you been there too? Tell us!
Vivaan goes to The Heritage School and is a student of Word Munchers.
The one place I would recommend people to visit is Maheshganj, which is about four hours away from Kolkata. I went there two years ago in December.
I went with my brother, my mother and my father. My father’s friend, Prithvi Nath Tagore also came along with us. We went there by car since it is not too far. We stayed at a place called Balakhana.
Balakhana is very nice. It is a big house with lots of trees and plants. Two dogs live there called Tuppy and Johny. It has a very nice swing too.
The interesting place I saw there was a temple in Mayapur, though one part was under renovation. We went to the other part and it was beautiful, it had lots of paintings on the roof.
The most fascinating place there were the shops because they were all in one line and they sold many different things made by the local artists.
The souvenir I got from there was a cup with the picture of the ‘Balakhana’ estate and spoons made from the bark of trees.
The food I would recommend there is the green salad and the vegetables because they feel like magic on your tongue as they are all home grown.
I recommend this place to people because it is beautiful, there is a lot to explore, vast gardens with colourful flowers and numerous fruits, nature walks, the animals, ruins of a building on the other side of the plants which gives it a mysterious look.
It is a little piece of heaven on Earth. It is a great place, which gives a ‘home away from home’ feeling.

Very Well Written Vivaan. Keep on travelling and writing …God Bless.
Nicely written. He must have really enjoyed his stay to remember the details so vividly, for a 7 year old to enjoy nature and then remember the details to pen down after 2 years is a commendable job in itself
