A Picnic Party Essay
It was the month of July and some of my friends had arranged a picnic party. The venue chosen for the party was the Qutub Minar. This place was chosen because it served two purposes – one we could see the historical monument and the secondly being on the outskirts of Delhi, we would be ‘far from the crowd.’
We decided to have our breakfast, lunch and evening tea there. So, we packed our food-stuff and went to the picnic spot. The day was fine with clouds hovering in the sky. We reached the Qutub Minar at 9.00 a.m. We had tea with some snacks. We had also carried with us some musical instruments like harmonium, sitar, gitar and stereo.After having our breakfast, a friend of mine, Sudhir, played on the harmonium. He played two songs, which were so thrilling, enchanting and pleasant that we enjoyed them to our heart’s content. The lush green lawns surrounding the Qutub and other shady trees make this place a natural spot full of beauty.
Then my friend Rakesh asked me to have a round of the area surrounding the Qutub. We decided to go, leaving two friends at the spot for arranging lunch. As with flowers and trees, we came across a foreigner couple who were taking photographs of the monuments and other important places of historical interest. They asked us a few questions and we answered them; we enjoyed the conversation very much. We came back to our picnic spot and found everything ready.
After this, we enjoyed the songs, poems and other humorous couplets. Sudhir’s performance as a singer and reciter of poems and ghazals was remarkable. His songs were so soothing and poems so enchanting that he attracted the attention of everybody around us. As this programme was going on, some of my friends started feeling drowsy. In no time, they went to sleep.
Now, Sudhir and I arranged the evening coffee. We had some snacks, pakoras, etc. I shook my sleeping friends and asked them to have coffee. They woke up and all of us enjoyed our coffee and snacks amid tit¬bits, jokes and retorts, which were so interesting, amusing and humorous that we had a laughing riot. Now, it was about 5 p.m. The other picnic parties were packing their paraphernalia and were preparing to go home. We also packed our things. Then, we proceeded towards home, talking, gossiping, chatting and laughing all the way. It was one of the best picnic parties I ever had.
