Hi, I am V Harshan, a student of XII Std, Kamala Niketan Montessori School, Trichy. This website has been created from the tons and tons of paper that my Papa has piled up over the years. This website was my Papa's idea, and he has been maintaining it since 2005.

I am the webmaster since June 2010. I have completed my summer courses in Adobe Flash, Illustrator and Corel Draw, at Kamala Niketan Montessori School, in April, 2010. And designing this website in Microsoft Front Page is a whole new experience.

Take time to browse through all the pages. There may be some useful information for you.

ENGLISH POETRY SUMMARIES

HISTORY NOTES

SHAKESPEARE NOTES

My Aunt Shoba Makhija is a connoisseur of English literature and an enthusiast of Victorian era prose and poetry.

Her note book of summaries of English Poetry written by her during her school days in 1980 is still a treasured collection of my Papa's archives.

The History Notes are from the archives of my Grandfather, Shamsunder Makhija, who was a student of Campion High School in the 1950ís.

The then History teacher was Fr. Merrifield. And his History notes were noted for their simplicity and precise narration of facts.

Shakespeare's plays were the absolute delight of Ms. Gomez, English Professor to my Grandmother at Fathima College at Madurai during the 1960's. Her portrayal of Shakespeare's characters in  "As You Like It" are interesting to read even today.
