Friday – 27/03/2020
I woke up at 9:45 and I ate bread, jam and banana for my breakfast. After this, I listened to music on my phone. I love bengali art songs and hindi bollywood romantic and sad songs. They have good music and rhythm.
Also, I listen to english songs such as Shakira, Katy Perry, Shawn Mendis and Daddy Yankee ones.
Then, I played cricket with my friends, we made two teams of 6 players each. We enjoy to play cricket ! Before lunch, we took our shower and we cleaned our house.
For lunch, I ate rice, dhal and mixed vegetables. Every meal is prepared by a cooker. A little rest and then I’m ready to play UNO with my friends !
We shared the dinner eating egg curry, dhal and rice. It’s time to sleep after chatting with my friends on WhatsApp!

This morning for breakfast, I ate Uphma : it’s an indian breakfast which is made with Indian spices, vegetables, nuts and special ingredients. It is full of protein ! All boys prepare different meals.
I played UNO with Pintu, Raja and Samir. They are my brothers in the NGO..
Today is Saturday so we have House cleaning and the work is distributed to everyone in the house. The tasks are written in the small paper and each guy chooses one paper. Then, each task is distributed among everyone equally.
For lunch, we cooked chicken with rice, dhal and mixed vegetables
We cooked with turmeric powder, chillies and onions. After lunch, we played football !

Today we decided to watch Hollywood movies !
Guns Akimbo : Miles is a video game developer who inadvertently becomes the next participant in a real-life death match that streams online. While Miles soon excels at running away from everything, that won't help him outlast Nix, a killer at the top of her game.
Blood shot : Based on the bestselling comic book, Vin Diesel stars as Ray Garrison, a soldier recently killed in action and brought back to life as the superhero Bloodshot by the RST corporation. With an army of nanotechnology in his veins, he's an unstoppable force -stronger than ever and able to heal instantly. But in controlling his body, the company has sway over his mind and memories, too. Now, Ray doesn't know what's real and what's not - but he's on a mission to find out.
Spies in disguise : Super spy Lance Sterling and scientist Walter Beckett are almost exact opposites. Lance is smooth, suave and debonair. Walter is not. But what Walter lacks in social skills he makes up for in smarts and invention, creating the awesome gadgets Lance uses on his epic missions. But when events take an unexpected turn, Walter and Lance suddenly have to rely on each other in a whole new way. And if this odd couple can't learn to work as a team, the whole world is in peril.
The boy who harnessed the wind : A 13-year-old boy is thrown out of the school he loves when his family can no longer afford the fees. He sneaks into the library and learns how to build a windmill to save his village from a famine.
We watched 4 movies and we like it so much ! I think that The boy who harnessed the wind was my favorite because it's a good motivationional movie. Through this movie, we can learn about how a boy with out going to school took help from the library books to make a windmill in their village to bring water.

Today, I got up at 9 am and then I went to the rooftop to have my breakfast : I ate puri and potato curry. After having breakfast, I played UNO with friends and then at 1 pm, I had my lunch.
This evening, we offered flowers and candles to Ali Hussain uncle for his memory. Our NGO was founded by Ali Hussain in 2000. Today was his death anniversary so we had a minute of silence for him. He had this dream of opening a NGO for the poor children but before he could do anything he died because of stomach infection.
