The School Weekly 10th May 2021

Message from the Principal

You are not alone!

I want each one of you to practice self-care and look after your physical and emotional well-being.
Recognize your anxiety; it’s recommended to let your parents or a trusted adult know if you’re not feeling well, if you are feeling worried or lonely, so that they can help you.
Create distractions; watch a movie, listen to some music, draw something or water your plants.  Other way could be, divide your problem into two categories, things I can do something about and things I can do nothing about, this might reduce your worries. Let’s control what’s in our hands and that is…our happiness.
Focus on yourself; learn something new, start reading a book or start gardening, now is the time and chance to do it.
Be kind to yourself, don’t let anything bother you, reach out to someone, I am sure you will be heard.
Keep Smile😊
Lots of love and happiness

Importance of Self Isolation
Self-Isolation at home has been recommended for those diagnosed with COVID-19 and those who suspect they have been infected. Health agencies have issued detailed instructions for proper self-isolation. Many governments have mandated or recommended self-quarantine for entire populations. Quarantine helps prevent spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms. People in quarantine should stay home, separate themselves from others, monitor their health, and follow directions from their state or local health department.

Tinkering Skills 
Session started with a Video of Introduction to Breadboard. I learnt, How to use Breadboard, Potentiometer, Led, Slide Switch in the session. Breadboard is a temporary circuit where we can design our circuit and check. Tinkering sessions are really helpful. All the virtual circuits are made on Tinkercad.com. 
Thank you

The following things we learnt from the Tinkering Session:-
1. We learnt to use a breadboard, which we can use to test our project's circuit. We can make a temporary circuit on a breadboard and if the circuit is correct and the project is working in the proper way then we can make the circuit on the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) for permanent use.
2. We learnt how to give the current in the breadboard horizontally and vertically. We visualised a virtual circuit on a breadboard using TinkerCad and it was working properly.

Benefits of Pranayam
Pranayama is the practice of breath regulation. It’s a main component of yoga, an exercise for physical and mental wellness. In Sanskrit, “prana” means life energy and “yama” means control. The practice of pranayama involves breathing exercises and patterns. You purposely inhale, exhale, and hold your breath in a specific sequence. In yoga, pranayama is used with other practices like physical postures (asanas) and meditation (dhyana). Together, these practices are responsible for the many benefits of yoga. But pranayama has benefits of its own. These advantages are due to the therapeutic effects of breathing exercises and mindfulness. The benefits of pranayama have been extensively researched.
According to scientific studies, pranayama may benefit your health in a variety of different ways. Let’s look at seven of these benefits in more detail.
1. Decreases Stress
2. Improves Sleep Quality 
3. Increases Mindfulness 
4. Reduces High Blood Pressure 
5. Improves Lung functioning 
6. Enhance Cognitive Performance 
7. Reduces Cigarette Cravings 
Pranayama is a main component of yoga. It’s frequently practiced with yoga postures and meditation.
The goal of pranayama is to strengthen the connection between your body and mind.
According to research, pranayama can promote relaxation and mindfulness. It’s also proven to support multiple aspects of physical health, including lung function, blood pressure, and brain function.

Honesty and Respect
Respect, Honesty and Trust are important hallmarks of healthy relationships. In healthy relationships people talk honestly, listen well and trust and respect each other. Honesty is the essential character trait that every individual should pass. The possession of this trait is very beneficial for a person’s whole life. The term is defined as the courage to speak the truth and reject infidelity. Whereas respect  is a way of treating or thinking about someone. People respect others who are impressive for any reason such as being in authority – like a teacher or cop or being older – like a grandparent. We show respect by being polite and kind. As Americans , we are taught early that honesty is a great virtue that one must show respect to earn respect and that learning compassion requires standing on someone else’s shoes . All of these are pretty ideas. After all , people don’t want to be lied to ; they want to be respected for who they are. I think it’s best summed up by the adage, “Treat others the way you wish to be treated.”

Honesty & Respect
Honesty and Respect existed in India till ancient times. Honest people have been respected by the public in the past. People were not only honest to each other, but they also respected each other and their ideas. Some examples of honesty are Raja Harishchandra and Yudhishthira (Also called Dharamraja ). Respect matters a lot to the ancient people. They respected their elders as well as youngsters. With time, the meaning of honesty and respect has changed very much. Today honesty has the same value for some people. In today's world, where crime is prevailing everywhere globally, some people have respect for honesty. Honesty pays, but one should have patience. Respect is like a give and takes matter. If you give someone respect, you will get the same respect in return.

कोरोना: मुसीबत की घड़ी
                    मुसीबत एक अनोखी आई, 
                    मन को किसी के नहीं भाई, 
                      चारों ओर तबाही छाई। 
                      हमारी ही ये तो माया है, 
                       मन ही मन भरमाया है, 
                     समय विचित्र ले आया है। 
                      प्राण-वायु का संकट है, 
                    तो कहीं उपचार विकट है, 
                      दुनिया पर ये कंटक है।
                      मानवता को मत छोड़ो,
                   मदद का संकल्प मत तोड़ो
                     नियमों से खुद को जोड़ो।
                       उजियारा एक नया होगा,
                                                               बादल काला अवश्य छँटेगा,
                                                                पूर्ववत सब कुछ तब होगा।
                                                                आशा की उम्मीद जगाओ,
                                                               संकट विपद को तुम हराओ,
                                                                एक-दूजे का साथ निभाओ।

गलतियों से सीखना  
गलतियाँ सीखने की प्रक्रिया का एक महत्वपूर्ण हिस्सा है। सीखने में गलतियों के बिना , आपका दिमाग कुछ नहीं सीखेगा। ऐसा इसलिए है क्योंकि अगर गलती करने के बाद हताशा में हार मानने के बजाय , हम गलती को समझने के लिए रचनात्मक रूप में काम करते हैं , तो समस्या को हल करने की रणनीति हमारे साथ बेहतर हैं , अगर हम समाधान को याद करते हैं। इसके बावजूद , हमारी शिक्षा प्रणाली में , गलतियों को अक्सर सीखने के अवसर के रूप में देखा जाता है। तब हम अपने छात्रों को उनकी गलतियों से सीखने में मदद के लिए क्या कर  सकते हैं ? सबसे पहले , आइए देखें कि कैसे गलतियाँ सीखने की प्रक्रिया को उत्तेजित कर सकती हैं। यदि छात्रों को अपनी गलतियों से सीखने की अनुमति दी जाती है , तो उन्हें गलतियाँ करने की अनुमति दी जानी चाहिए।  साथ ही , एक गलती के अनुकूल सीखने का माहौल बनाने में मदद करें , जहाँ छात्र अपनी गलतियों पर शर्म महसूस न करें। अपने छात्रों को हार न मानने और सही समाधान पर काम करना जारी रखने के लिए प्रेरित करें। इस तरह , सीखने का प्रतिफल फोकस बना रहता है और गलतियों से निपटने का एक रचनात्मक तरीका इस का एक महत्त्वपूर्ण आधार है।

Humility 
Humility is the quality of being humble. It also means putting the needs of others before your own and thinking of others before yourself. This quality has to be a part of one’s character. It begins with accepting who we are and what makes us human. It has to start with the recognition that we are not always right, we can be wrong at some point in time, and we need to learn from others.  A humble person is an eye-catcher in this era of selflessness, where everybody screams for themselves and avoid others completely. A humble person is always loved, appreciated and respected by others. We often see that it is easy to be humble when we are at the low stage, but many of us lose this quality when we progress and achieve something in life. A person should not make others feel inferior and consider himself superior. Otherwise, we will start feeling avoided by the people around us. We can often notice the difference in the size of a friend circle of a humble person v/s a selfish or rude person.  Being a teacher, we need to inculcate this value among our children, but this only happens when we are humble towards others; children always learn by doing and seeing the people around them. We can also share some examples of great leaders (Mother Teresa) who were admired and respected only because of this humbleness. 
Let me put an end by saying that 'Always be like the bamboo. The higher you grow, the deeper you bow.'
