Trump: The American Shadow

By: Marcus Fernandez 10A

The 2016 November presidential elections will be a historic day for the United States of America, a day that could change the thriving country forever, but will it be for the better? The candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are arguably the two worst candidates for office, however despite the countless flaws with Hillary, Trump emerges as the greater of the two evils, and in my opinion will cause the eventual downfall of America, but why is Trump the worse choice?

To begin with, Donald Trump has very little political experience and has come this far purely with his wealth as a real estate agent developer and a TV reality star, hardly enough to make someone worthy of controlling a nation.


Young Authors

Showcases some of our young writers and their writing. At Manthan creative writing starts very early, while the first couple of years of Kindergarten is more to do with developing language skills of listening and speaking, from grade 1 the focus shifts to reading and writing. Children are encouraged to write at every point and they are given not just inspiration but various devices to structure and articulate their thoughts.

Poetic Minds

The poems published here are collected from regular class room assessments of the children done during the year. Its tough to do justice to all and pick the best from thousands of such works, the effort was more to present a sample of children's works rather than select the best. It still gives a glimpse into our young poets and how they use words to express their feelings, emotions and ideas.

Book Reviews

Children are encouraged not just to read a good book but to discuss, analyse and understand it. Book review gives our children an opportunity to present their thoughts on what they see as the essence of the book.

Laugh Aloud

While school is as much about studies it is also about having fun doing so.. here our children take a dig at themselves and their teachers for some fun times.


In Spotlight our children interviewers interview various people at Manthan to understand what motivates them.

Inspiration Corner

Our Head of the Institution, Ramakrishna Reddy shares the literary pieces that have inspired him over the years and that are of immense relevance to parents today.
