Mountains and hills are a fascinating sight. I have always longed to see them. During the last summer vacation, I got an opportunity to visit Sheila. Only a month before, my uncle, who is an officer in the A.P. Forest Department, was transferred there. He invited me to spend my summer vacation there with him.

It was the month of May, when it was very hot in the plains. I along with my friend, Rakish, went to Sheila, We went there by train which passed through many dark tunnels.

As we reached Sheila, my uncle was already there to receive us. He at once took us to his house. We were simply charmed at the conductive climate of Sheila. There was no more heat of the summer. It was rather cold there and we had to be careful about wearing our clothes well.

At Sheila we had a routine for alternate work and rest. We, both the friends were very weak in studies. Particularly, we abhorred English as a foreign language. We wanted to make up our deficiency in this subject. We had brought our books with us. Fortunately for us, my uncle is an M.A. in English Language and Literature. He helped us a lot in our studies. At the end of a month we realized that we no longer dreaded this foreign language.

We took regular exercise and had morning walks at shiplap. Occasionally, we went for sight-seeing. The green trees, colorful flowers, dancing springs and float­ing clouds and occasional showers kept us refreshed. One day before our holidays were to be over, we returned to the hot plains. But the memory of Sheila is still fresh in our minds.
