I wrote this playscript for my students. It has a bit of suspense as we all know children love to be thrilled. But, while writing for children, we must keep in mind that we should avoid too much negativity.
Place: A hilly area
Sakshi: It’s quite cold today morning. Isn’t it?
Abhi: Guys, I heard the other day driver Ramadheen saying that there’s a shortcut to the stream through the woods. It takes only half an hour to reach there. We can try that…
Sakshi: (panting) I think I should sit on that large boulder for a minute.
(Meena attempts to sit on the boulder first but instantly gives out a muffled cry. Her friends become surprised)
Sakshi: What’s that, Meena? Now you are acting dramatically!
Som: (Stammers) We..we…thought…it..it’s just lying here.
Abhi: (sharply) Where are your slippers, Sir?
