A Picnic Party Essay In English

A Picnic

            Picnics, tours, trips and excursions are part and parcel or our life. They provide us complete opportunities to study the book of Nature as Shakespeare says. “We find sermons in stones, tongues, in trees and books in running brooks”. Picnics, tours and tours are as important as food and drink.

             One Sunday morning, the weather was very fine. The sky was cloudy and cool and gentle breeze was blowing. My friend and I decode to visit the river Beas which flows at a distance of six kilometers from our town. We were a party of eight friends. We took with us our swimming suits and towels. We also carried a good quality of eatables including fruits. We left home on bicycles at 6 a.m.

              The river scenery was also very charming. Water in the river flowed on silently and majestically. Fish swam in the water. There were flocks of water birds sitting on the banks. We parked out bicycles. Then we changed our swimming suits. Then we had a dip in the river. Then we played some games on the soft sand of the river bank. Thereafter, we sat down in a circle to take rest. One of us was a good singer; he entertained us with many songs. We all were in a gay mood. So we chatted and laughed. We cracked jokes with one another. We heated the food that we carried with us on the stove. We had a hearty meal.

               In the meantime it grew very hot. So we took rest under the shade of a tree. Then we began to play at cards. After some time tea was ready, we took tea and eatables; by then it was 5:30 p.m. we took our bicycles and started back for home. We reached home at 6:00 p.m. it was a happy day in the pleasant company of friends.

A Picnic


An Outing with the Family


How I Spent A Holiday

It is always good to go out of doors. Free air and open sky are always welcome. Quite often one feels choked inside the houses and cities. It is good to run away into the open air for a day when one has the time. Picnics were very common for families in  older days. But now even picnics  are becoming rare and uncommon. Families just do not have time, money and mood to go away from their boring familiar surroundings. That indeed is one of the greatest ill of modern times.

A picnic is a delightful diversion. It takes you away from your dull daily routine, it produces a soothing effect and adds charm to life. sometimes it is possible to plan  and go out. When it is possible, one avail of the opportunity.   

We had one such opportunity last Sunday. Early in the morning we got ready to spend a day at the Okha Canal Bank. My mummy prepared food and my sisters helped in making other preparations. We took a thermos filled with tea and took along a couple of carpets for spreading under the trees to make ourselves feel comfortable.

It was not easy to catch a bus from Connaught Place for Okhla Barrage. We made some enquiries but there was no bus available. We were told to get a bus for Lajpat Nagar and then get a bus for Okhla from there. So we boarded a bus for Lajpat Nagar. But at Lajpat Nagar we had to wait for an hour to get a bus for Okhla. But Okhla was worth all the trouble we had to take to go there.

It was a beautiful scene and weather was cooler than in the city. There were green trees and they provided nice shade to the picnickers. Some fishermen were busy catching fish. There were lot of children playing with each other under the shady trees. There we took our lunch and lunch seemed specially tasty at Okhla. We felt that our lunch was not enough because everyone ate more than usual.     

After lunch we all had a nap under the balmy shade for the trees. The children of one family played with children of other picnickers. Some old women read their holy books. In the afternoon there was a drizzle and even a few drops of rain were very much welcome at that season of the year. But the rain broke the magic web of our sleep. Our sweet  dream came to an end.

Now it was getting evening. We took the evening tea which we had brought with us along with some snacks specially made for the trip. When it was getting dark, we boarded a bus and returned home.

An Excursion to a Lake


A Picnic

Picnicking is a very good source of recreation as well as instruction. I try my best to have at least one picnic party in a month.

Last Sunday I along-with a number of my friends, went out for a picnic. I had persuaded them two days earlier and all the necessary arrangements had been made a day earlier.

On the fixed day, two of my friends, Sushil and Anil left very early in the morning for the canal. They took with them a number of mats, a stove, a kerosene can, some wheat flour, a pastry board, a pastry roller, a big can of purified water and a number of necessary articles which had been jointly listed by all the friends. They left for the venue on a tempo. The renowned cook, Mr. Devi Dayal, who had been engaged by us also, reached the place at the time he was asked to do. He had already cut up the vegetables and prepared the fire before we reached there.

There were a dozen friends in all. We, the remaining friends reached the place on our bikes.

On reaching the lake, we decided to boat for a while. We had already engaged a boat’s man and his boat. We had a very hilarious


Then we decided to sing and dance on the mats to the tune of deck which Anil and Sushil had taken with them.

Meanwhile, Devi Dayal, had prepared hot puns with a fresh mixed vegetable dish. Thereafter we took sweet pudding.

Then we had a session of tidbits and quizzes and other cultural items. We enjoyed ourselves a lot for a few hours and then returned home. We were full of enthusiasm, joy and happiness that the moments of interaction and cooperative spirit had lent us.
