Like many other children I too had to change my school when I was young. Today, I’m going to share one such time with you.
My father was an officer in the Indian army. His job involved frequent transfers from one place to another. I was in 7th class and my dad was posted in Dehradun. At that time I was studying in Army Public School, Dehradun. One day he received his transfer order for a city called Jodhpur. It’s a historical city in Rajasthan state of North India.
The children of the majority of army men in India attend central schools which are either run by the army or central government. Whenever government employees are ordered to relocate, their kids move to these schools. The process of changing school for children is normally simple and straightforward. Once you reach a new place, the kids can start their school immediately. For me that was around April in the year 1999.
This was a newly established school. Most of the facilities like swimming pool and playgrounds were still under construction at the time of my arrival. I did take some time to fit into the new environment, but soon enough I felt like I really belonged there. I made some great friends and had a great time overall.

My hometown Dehradun is a small but vibrant city. Locals have access to a wide range of entertainment facilities such as sports centers, shopping malls and cinemas etc. Today, I’m going to talk about a very popular place which is visited by thousands of people every day.
It’s a huge shopping complex called the Pacific Mall. It was opened to the public in 2015. The building is located in a posh area of Dehradun. Young adults normally use their own mode of transport like car, bike or scooter to reach there. Some families prefer public transport as parking is quite expensive in the complex.
This shopping center is equipped with a 4-screen cinema, lots of branded shops, multicultural food courts and children’s play areas. Concerts, music and dance competitions are also organized regularly. Depending upon the interest and the purpose of visiting the mall, people can decide what they wish to do in the complex. They can watch the latest films, enjoy delicious food from China, Thailand and Italy or participate in cultural programs. Shoppers can also get a fabulous shopping experience. Children too can have a lot of fun in designated play areas.
Another special feature of this place is that people can meet renowned writers, musicians and chefs on gazetted holidays like 15th August, 2nd October and 26th January and festivals. They can even give suggestions about who should be invited in the future. The public is duly informed about the upcoming events through adverts in local newspapers. Certainly, all these facilities make it an ideal place for all age groups. It’s is worth visiting.
