Shakespearean English? We use it daily!

For goodness sake, don't use all this flowery English with me! I am not that good in language.

Do you hear people saying this?
Not many, these days, because, many of the words and phrases that Shakespeare used 400 years ago have come to stay in daily use of English.
The words such as 'rant', 'fashionable' are among many words he coined.
"Haven't you slept one wink during examination time?" Shakespeare did it first.

Here is an article written on the occasion of William Shakespeare's 450th birthday.
Read it. Interesting!

Know your country, election and manifesto

If you think that elections are only for those above 18 and could cast their votes, think again.
Today's young people in schools are tomorrow's voters. The schools also conduct elections for Head boy and Head girl these days. Many Model United Nations (MUN) sessions are held in schools. All these introduce the young people to the administration of  countries, the ministers and their portfolios ...

When this is the season of elections in the country, we came across a website that has come up with information regarding elections for children.

The website has fun facts, info graphics and invites manifesto from children. There are some Bhangra, Lungi dance for the top contestants!
Check this and know all about elections the fun way.
