In the morning, we all got down with heavy heart as it was the last day of our German guests with us. But we wanted to make this a memorable day for all of us. We quickly finished our breakfast & set out for the day’s visit in New Delhi.  Firstly, we went to India Gate. We also saw Amar Jawan Jyoti there. The Germans were surprised to see names of Indian freedom fighters on bricks of India Gate. We had lot of pictures there. Then we departed for Kingdom of Dreams in Gurgaon. India is distilled into one iconic destination here. This fabulous kingdom brings to life a blend of India’s art, culture, heritage, craft etc. We visited there Nautanki Mahal, Culture gully, 5D Show Theatre.  We enjoyed our lunch in Culture gully. We were enjoying so much in the Kingdom of Dreams that we did not want to go from there. But we had to move for Ambience Mall. Most of us did shopping and finally had our dinner at the end of the day. As night was approaching, the time of departure from Germans was also coming near. Finally, we left for IGI Airport with our guests. We said then good bye to them. It was a wonderful time with them. These days will never be forgotten.

We had our dinner at the Ambience Mall, clicked pictures .Now was the time to depart between the Germans and the Indians. Everybody was a bit sad on the thought of getting apart and with the question that when will we meet again. We left for the IGI Airport, New Delhi from where our German friends had their flight back to their place. We all hugged each other and met with smiles and greetings. We wished them safe journey and bid adieu to them.

Near about at 9pm we got up, took breakfast and got ready for a visit to Nehru Planetarium, Doll Museum and Akshardham Temple, New Delhi. As our tickets were reserved, we entered the Planetarium. We saw a short documentary on our planet Earth. From that documentary, we got to know some new things about our planet. Then we proceeded to Doll Museum. Our German friends were very happy to see the dolls of different regions over there. There were hundreds of dolls in the museum. At last, we left for our final destination of the day i.e. Akshardham Temple. It epitomizes Indian culture in all breathtaking grandeur and beauty. It reflects Indian ancient art, traditions and so many spiritual messages. We saw short documentaries based on Indian culture and Hindu Mythology. The fountain show was just amazing, speechless!! After the dinner at Akshardham Temple, we returned back to the youth hostel and slept for dreams.

After tiring journey from Agra to Delhi, we were still ready to enjoy each moment of joy. After the breakfast, we moved to Nehru Planetarium. It is situated on the grounds of Teen Murti Bhavan, New Delhi. The major attraction of this place was its Sky Theater. It was a dome shaped theatre. We got information about the planets. We all were excited to see all of this. After spending time in Nehru Planetarium, we went to Doll Museum. It is one of the most renowned museums in New Delhi which has huge collections of dolls from across the globe. We were amazed to see that each doll was handcrafted after meticulous research into physical attributes, dresses and jewelry of individual characters from various countries of the world. There was a special display of a representative collection of over 150 dolls in Indian costumes. Moving to our last destination of the day, we arrived Akshardhan, which is a Hindu Temple. There we also saw theatre which showed a film specially commissioned for the complex, Neelkanth Yatra to recount a seven year pilgrimage made by Swaminarayan during his teenage years throughout India. Germans were amazed to see the art of Indians. The most fascinating was the fountain show in which the water from the fountains was released with music related to Hindu mythology. After having our dinner at Akshardham, we finally left for our Youth Hostel.

We got up with the blazing sun shining in Jaipur. We quickly had our breakfast as we were eager to see the one of the Seven Wonders of the World. We did not believe that we were going to see the Taj Mahal. We started our journey from Jaipur to Agra. We also hired a guide in Agra to give us every detail of Taj Mahal. He told us that it is recognized as “The Jewel of Muslim Art” in India. We all were surprised to see its architectural styles and is made of white marble. It was built by Shah Jahan in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz. Our guide also showed us the Tombs of Shahjahan and Mumtaz. As told by guide its real beauty can be enjoyed at the night time, when the moonlight night falls on it. It can be called the true piece art in the earth. German Guests were feeling very happy as well as lucky to see Taj Mahal. They were speechless to see the beauty of Taj Mahal. Its memory was unforgettable for all of us. It was like a dream come true. Nearly at 8’o clock we reached the International Youth Hostel, New Delhi where we had our stay. We had our dinner and went to bed with the sweet memories.

It was a   marvelous day, although it was tiring too. The day began with project presentations. Everyone had to show what they had done in previous three days regarding their topics of projects. Power Point presentation was made by each group and that was shown to all. Some had made videos with innovative ways to present their topics. It took nearly three hours in presenting it. The presentations were beautifully presented and appreciated by all. Then we all were taken to VASANT VALLEY PUBLIC SCHOOL, MALERKOTLA. We were warmly welcomed there by the staff of that school. Our German Guests were pleased to see the kids with broad smiles and took their photographs. Mr. Edwin witt recited a poem in one of the class at malerkotla campus and the students too enjoyed with him. After that we went to STAR IMPACT (a shoe Factory). Everybody was quite impressed to know about the manufacturing of shoes, one of their representative also told us about how to stitch a football at home. Before leaving the owner of the factory presented each one of us with a pair of best of their shoes. Finally we came back to school and then departed, back to our home. Then me and my friend Aina with our German friends went to local market in LC and enjoyed the snacks there. After gossiping and discussing about Indian traditions we came back home. Brit, Tomke, Henry, Jan-ole were quite shocked after visiting the market of Sangrur as there was lot of noise and crowd. We all were tired but still excited for the next day.
