The Chimney Sweeper
When my mother died I was very young,
And my father sold me while yet my tongue
Could scarcely cry 'weep! 'weep! 'weep! 'weep!
So your chimneys I sweep and in soot I sleep.

There's little Tom Dacre, who cried when his head,
That curled like a lamb's back, was shaved: so I said,
"Hush, Tom! never mind it, for when your head's bare,
You know that the soot cannot spoil your white hair."

And so he was quiet, and that very night,
As Tom was a-sleeping he had such a sight!
That thousands of sweepers, Dick, Joe, Ned, and Jack,
Were all of them locked up in coffins of black;
-William Blake

Dinesh was perplexed when he saw his grandma packing so many bags.
"Where are you going grandma?"
Pabitra looked at her eight years old grandson.
"Your uncle's house".
"Are you going for a long time there?" asked Dinesh.
Pabitra didn't reply but continued packing her things. At the moment his mother Junakiri arrived looking very stressed. "Go to your room and check whether you have completed your homework. Don't disturb grandma". She said staring at him.
Dinesh went to his room. He was scared of his mother when she was in a serious mood. After an hour, she called a taxi and loaded it with her luggage. "Where are you Kanchhu? Come here. I'm leaving?"
No sooner had he approached than she kissed and squeezed him tightly, put some money in his hand and got onto the taxi.
"Grandma! When will you come back?" Dinesh shouted as she vanished into the   crowded city in the taxi. His question remained unanswered. He turned to his father Jayram and said, "Daddy, stop her or let me go with her. Why hasn't she taken me? When will she come back?"
Jayram held his hand, entered the room and said, "She has gone to your uncle's house. How could she take you with her? You should be anxious about your study and exam. I don't know when she will come back."
Grandma loved him very much. He used to sleep in her lap playing with her gray hair and caressing her wrinkled face. She used to tell wonderful stories at his bed time. She was a good story teller. How could he forget her? In her absence, when his school had holidays, Dinesh mostly spent his day with Binita, a middle aged woman, who worked as a housekeeper for more than 20 years for his family.

This human-sized penguin isn't even the largest ancient penguin we know about.
By Rachel Feltman December 13, 2017
Today there are 17 species of penguin prowling the planet, and they are all firkin' adorable. New Zealand actually boasts the smallest extant species, which clocks in at an average of 13 inches tall. The biggest the aptly-named Emperor Penguin - still only reaches 48 inches. Big for a bird, sure, but you're likely not intimidated by a waddling animal the size of a third grader.
Things used to be very different for our flightless friends. Based on its bones, researchers believe Kumimanu biceae a newly-discovered species, grew to be almost 6 feet tall, and may have weighed over 220 pounds. That's not even the biggest extinct penguin species we know of. Some 37 million years ago in Antarctica, there roamed a species that grew to stand 6 feet 8 inches tall. That's a LeBorn James-sized penguin. To help your ponder that, we've found a picture of LeBorn James standing next to actress Amy Schmerwho at 5'7", is a roughly-average-height human being. Please note that she is wearing heels, so this is actually what it would look like if an average-sized human in high heels stood next to the largest-known species of ancient penguin.
But study author Gerald Mayr of the Senckenberg Research Institute and Natural History Museum Frankfurt points out that it's not surprising some penguins were once big.
"Actually, it is often observed that flightless birds become very large", he told PopScivia email. "One rather has to answer the question why there are no giant penguins today".
The new species helps to answer that question by filling in some of the evolutionary history of the lineage. Kumimanu biceae is one of the geologically oldest penguins ever found, putting it close to the base of the penguin family tree. Most other giant penguins (that we know of) came on the scene tens of millions of years later. And there are relatives between Kumimanu biceae abd those later cousins that were quite small, suggesting their gigantism evolved in different times and places.
