Home Street Home

10-year old Nikita Shetty of San Jose wrote the following short poem on a visit to India. A small reminder of the forgotten people of Mumbai.

Home … to you and me, a home means a house, and that’s all it could
A dusty old road, thats all it would be
Well we’re wrong
A dusty old road , is a home, to so many
A dusty old road, is all they ever seen,
And for some..
Its Home Street Home.

NIkita lives with her parents in San Jose, California. She attends fifth grade at Simonds Elementary School.Nikita enjoys writing, sketching, and playing soccer.
When Nikita grows up she wants to become a Sketch Artist and an Author.

    Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say superb blog!

    I enjoy tumblr, I never understood I should go away other Full blogging services (wordpress, blogger, typepad) for this young support once I first registered in it.. And for the urls, tumblr now extracts them from the post titles, and tags are becoming elevated too. You can still use it for micro running a blog and aggregator to sites you like.
