Ankit: I like to play football and cricket. And I like my school because there are many trees and I learn many things. After completing my studies I want to become a Mathematics and Science teacher and teach in many villages.

House portrays a house, a man, a snake a sun and clous. The print is about the importance of having a safe abode that provides shelter from the elements. Ankit: In my drawing everything I made is possible, there is nothing unusual about it. We all need a house for protection from the sun, the rain, from insects and animals, like the snake in my work. It is possible that everybody has such a safe place. I wish it for everybody.
