An enchanting collection of stories from the heartland of India Ruskin Bond’s simple characters, living amidst the lush forests of the Himalayan foothills, are remarkable for their quiet heroism, courage and grace, and age-old values of honesty and fidelity. Residents of nondescript villages and towns, they lead lives that are touched by natural beauty as well as suffering—the loss of a loved parent, unfulfilled dreams, natural calamities, ghostly visitations, a respected teacher turned crooked, strangers who make a nuisance of themselves—which only reinforces their abiding faith in God, family and neighbour. Told in Bond’s distinctive style, these stories are a magnificent evocation of an India that may be fast disappearing.

Kısa öyküler 7 ülkedeki ortak okullarımızın öğrencilerince 7 dilde yazıldı ve tüm kısa öyküleri İngilizce çevirleriyle okuyabilirsiniz. 590 sayfalık kitabımızda 65 kısa öykü ve bir ortak öykü bulunmaktadır. Preface “The deaf listens to words of the mute; For only the soul can underastand the unsaid and the unheard words. People were divided into seventy-two languages and borders arose.” These lines belong to a Turkish thinker who lived in the 13th century. UNESCO declared 2021 as ‘The Year of Yunus Emre’ for the 700th anniversary of his death. In this book, we have also a short story dedicated to Yunus Emre. The teachers and students collaborating to make real a mutual dream discovered the wordless language stronger than any borders. We have a mutual dream with the young authors from seven different countries: to create a multilingual book. We published our first book last year on 23rd April 2020. Printed books were delivered to the young authors studying in partner schools. In the second year of our project, we created short stories with children from Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Croatia, Poland, Romania and Türkiye. Our students wrote many short stories and 65 of them were selected to be published in this book. We created an audiobook library with that stories. All the stories were narrated in their mother tongues, and we add English audio for selected stories. Also, stories are illustrated by the students from different countries. We also have a collaborative story this year, each part of the story was written by eTwinners studying in different schools. It consists of 13 parts. Nihal, the main character, needs to find an extinct plant, but it’s harder for her to find someone to rely on. We travelled with her in different countries and times to learn more about her adventure. It took seven months to complete that collaborative story. We used English as a common language during the meetings, but we created opportunities for our students to use their mother tongues too. We experienced multilingualism with our students and parents, they become familiar with different languages and cultures. Through our language-friendly project, we want to encourage students to develop an interest in different languages and cultures by welcoming and valuing all languages spoken. By creating a story, a child can channel their emotions and decide on how to behave in challenging situations they might encounter. While creating a story, the author shows empathy with the characters, expresses different emotions experienced by characters, or overcomes a difficult situation that a character encountered. This may help a child to express how they feel and understand how others feel. Storytelling is a way of self-discovery and self-expression, their feelings can be demonstrated throughout the child’s words. Creating a story can also develop language skills. The mother tongue education is a raison d’être for the schools. Because when learners develop their mother tongue, they are simultaneously fostering a whole host of other essential skills, such as critical thinking and literacy skills. Children with a strong mother tongue can easily pick up a second language and can transfer these skills to a second language. These children often display a deeper understanding of themselves and their environment. That affects every aspect of their lives, including their academic achievement. It has become a requirement to have language skills in addition to being a specialist within a particular field. I’d like to thank the teachers of Ali Tekinsoy Secondary School and my distinguished colleagues from partner schools for encouraging and inspiring their students to contribute to our second multilingual book named “Stories of Lights in the Sky-2”. More than a hundred students built this book with their words, lines and voices. They were brave enough to represent their schools by sending their stories to a book that has been read in more than fifty countries. We wish the best for them and hear their names again even years afters. Ahmet ARSLAN Editor Önsöz "Dilsizler haberini, kulaksız dinleyesi Dilsiz kulaksız sözün, can gerek anlayası Yetmiş iki dil saçtı, araya sınır düştü” Bu dizeler 13. yüzyılda yaşayan bir Türk düşünürüne aittir. UNESCO, 2021 yılını ölümünün 700. yıldönümü anısına ’Yunus Emre Yılı' olarak ilan etti. Bu kitapta Yunus Emre'ye adanmış bir kısa öykümüz de var. Şiirdeki gibi ortak hayalimiz için birlikte çalıştığımız öğretmen ve öğrencilerle, aradaki sınırları kaldıracak güçlü bir dil inşa ettik. Yedi farklı ülkeden genç yazarlarla paylaştığımız bir hayalimiz vardı; çok dilli bir kitap oluşturmak. İlk kitabımızı geçen yıl 23 Nisan'da yayımladık ve farklı ülkelerdeki genç yazarlarımıza basılı kitaplarını ulaştırdık. Projemizin ikinci yılında İrlanda, Portekiz, İspanya, Hırvatistan, Polonya, Romanya ve Türkiye'den çocuklarla kısa öyküler oluşturduk. Öğrencilerimiz birçok kısa öykü yazdılar ve 65 kısa öykü bu kitapta yayınlanmak üzere seçildi. Bu öykülerle faklı dillere öğrencilerimizin aşina olmasını sağlayacak bir sesli kitap kütüphanesi oluşturduk. Tüm öyküler ana dillerinde seslendirildi ve seçilen bazı öyküler için İngilizce seslendirme de ekledik. Ayrıca, öyküler farklı ülkelerdeki öğrenciler tarafından resmedildi. Proje boyunca etkileşimi artırmak adına mümkün olduğunca görevleri çapraz olarak dağıttık. Bu yıl geçen yıldan farklı olarak işbirlikçi bir öykümüz de var, öykünün her bölümü farklı okullarda okuyan öğrencilerce yazıldı. Bu öykü 13 bölümden oluşmaktadır. Öyküde kahramanımız Nihal, soyu tükenmiş bir bitkiyi bulmak için bir maceraya atılıyor, ancak güvenecek birini bulmak onun için daha zor. Macerasının devamını öğrenmek için birlikte farklı ülke ve zamanlarda yolculuk yaptık. 7 ayda yazılan öykümüzü beğenerek okuyacağınızı düşünüyorum. Bunun yanında öğrenci ve öğrenciler birçok toplantı yaptık, İngilizceyi ortak bir dil olarak kullandığımız toplantılarda öğrencilerimizin anadillerini de birbirinden öğrenmeleri için fırsatlar yarattık. Öğrencilerimiz ve velilerimiz çok dilliliği tecrübe etti, farklı dil ve kültürlere aşina oldular. Dil dostu projemizle, konuşulan tüm dilleri memnuniyetle karşılıyor ve değer vererek öğrencilerimizi farklı dillere ve kültürlere ilgi duymaya teşvik etmek istiyoruz. Kurgu oluşturmak çocuğun duygularını yönetebilmesine ve karşılaşabileceği zorlu durumlarda nasıl davranacağına karar verebilmesine olanak sağlar. Bir öykü oluştururken, yazar karakterleriyle empati kurar, karakterlerin yaşadığı farklı duyguları okuyucuya aktarır veya bir karakterin karşılaştığı zor bir durumun üstesinden birlikte gelir. Bu, bir çocuğun nasıl hissettiğini ifade etmesine ve başkalarının nasıl hissettiğini anlamasına yardımcı olabilecek bir çalışmadır. Öykü anlatımı, kendini keşfetme ve ifade etmenin emin bir yoludur, çocukların iç dünyası kelimeleri vasıtasıyla ortaya dökülür. Bir öykü kurgulamak dil becerilerini de geliştirebilir. Ana dil eğitimi okulların var oluş sebebidir. Çünkü öğrenciler anadillerini geliştirdiklerinde, aynı anda eleştirel düşünme ve okuryazarlık becerileri gibi bir dizi diğer temel becerileri geliştirirler. Güçlü bir ana dili olan çocuklar kolayca ikinci bir dil edinebilir ve bu becerileri ikinci bir dile aktarabilirler. Bu çocuklar genellikle kendileri ve çevreleri hakkında daha derin bir algılama düzeyine ulaşabilirler. Bu, akademik başarıları da dahil olmak üzere hayatlarının her yönünü etkiler. Belirli bir alanda uzman olmanın yanı sıra dil becerilerine sahip olmak bir gereklilik haline gelmiştir. Ali Tekinsoy Ortaokulu öğretmenlerine ve ortak okullardan seçkin meslektaşlarıma, öğrencilerini “Gökyüzündeki Işıkların Öyküsü-2” adlı ikinci çok dilli kitabımıza öğrencilerimizi katkıda bulunmaya teşvik ettikleri ve ilham verdikleri için teşekkür ediyorum. Yüzden fazla öğrenci bu kitabı kelimeleri, çizgileri ve sesleri ile inşa etti. Okullarını temsil etme özgüvenine sahip olan öğrencilerimiz, öykülerini elliden fazla ülkede okunan bir kitaba gönderdiler. Onların gelecekleri için en güzelini diliyoruz ve yıllar sonra isimlerini tekrar duymayı umut ediyoruz. Ahmet ARSLAN Editör 19.05.2021

From a beautiful antique that gives its owner a show he'd rather forget, to 'ghost detective' whose exorcism goes horribly wrong and a sinister masked ball which seems to have one too many guests, these ghost stories of supernatural terror are guaranteed to make you shiver, thrill and look under the bed tonight. From rural England to colonial India, in murky haunted mansions and under modern electric lighting, these master storytellers - some of the best writers in the English language - unfold spinetinglers which pull back the veil of everyday life to reveal the nightmares which lurk just out of sight. They are lessons in ingenuity and surprise, sometimes building slowly to a chilling climax, sometimes springing horror on you from the utterly banal. And as you'd expect from these writers, the stories are more than simply frightening - they're also disquieting exposures of mortality, loneliness and the human capacity for both evil and remorse. We wish you pleasant dreams. Contains ghost stories by: Ruth Rendell, M. R. James, Rudyard Kipling, Edith Wharton, E. F. Benson, E. Nesbit, Saki, W. W. Jacobs, W. F. Harvey, Hugh Walpole, Chico Kidd and LP Hartley.

Kenji Miyazawa (1896-1933) is one of Japan's most beloved writers and poets, known particularly for his sensitive and symbolist children's fiction. This volume collects stories that focus on Miyazawa's love of space and his use of the galaxy as a metaphor for the concepts of purity, self-sacrifice, and faith, which were near and dear to his heart. "The Nighthawk Star" follows a lowly bird as he struggles to transform himself into something greater, a constellation in the night sky; "Signal & Signal-less" depicts a pair of star-crossed train signals who dream of eloping to the moon; and "Night on the Galactic Railroad," Miyazawa's most famous work, tells the story of two boys as they journey upon a train that traverses the Milky Way, learning the true meaning of friendship, happiness, and life itself along the way.
Abductions and Aliens

Type: BOOK - Published: 1999-09-01 - Publisher: Dundurn

We can't escape them; aliens are everywhere. They sell us soft drinks and star in their own sitcoms. But to the many people who believe they have been abducted aboard strange crafts, aliens are a very serious reality. Stories of these encounters, taken from investigators' files, have been vividly depicted in television specials and motion pictures. Despite their predominance as a cultural phenomenon, experts offer drastically conflicting opinions: aliens are harmless creatures whose aim is to better understand humans; aliens are angel-like entities here to enhance our spiritual awareness; aliens are conspiring with the government in a plot to enslave humans; and aliens are genetically breeding with humans to create a new race of hybrids. But, what is really going on? Are aliens abducting thousands of unsuspecting people each year? Are they then inserted with tracking devices and monitored? Based on his own investigative files and almost twenty-five years of research, science writer Chris Rutkowski asks hard questions, looking critically, yet compassionately, at the stories of abductees. He is an astronomer, educator and published commentator within the area of study known as "ufology." Rutowski presents case histories of many abductees, showing both their diversity and similarities, and examines how our understanding is shaped by media, by science, and by society itself.

Together, they discover that everything in their dreams has a counterpart in real life, which leads them to believe that something terrible is coming.

Through this book I would like to take you on a journey. It is a journey that I have been on for the past twenty-five years interviewing, questioning, doing therapy and teaching. It has been a remarkable trip into the private lives of people. I am a professional voyeur and I have found that most people are interested in what I hear, what I see and what I do. People want to know about others and they want to watch and learn.In this book I have compiled a collection of stories about some common themes in peoples' lives. In here, you can watch, learn, laugh and cry with me. If you are a voyeur like me then you will love this book.You can start reading at any point. Check out the table of contents and see what strikes you. I cannot know what you are ready to find or need to learn. Perhaps you can just play along and open it up and see where your eyes have taken you. My hope is that you will recognize yourself or others and you will think, feel and see exactly what you stopped here to learn.-Mark S. Benn, Psy.D. Psychologist

A compendium of fifty short stories ranging from politics and travels to tales of adventure and romance.

Life in all its nakedness, vicissitudes, and mysteries.
