Point of View
According to me happiness means giving space to good things and to learn from bad experiences. Happiness is not a goal which says come and achieve me but it is a thing that comes from the bottom of the heart and we have to feel it .Happiness opens the door for love and joy .If we are happy the whole world looks beautiful Happiness gives us good memories while the other aspect of life that is sadness gives us good lessons.  - Bhavika Mansion (Class X)

Happiness is the situation in which everyone should be satisfied and not hurt anyone else .Happiness is very important for life The person who is always sad can never make anyone else happy ,he is always in deep melancholy  So we should always remain happy and also make others happy. - Akshay Rajpurohit (Class X)

Upper House passes New Companies Bill into law 08 Aug 2013, 05:48 PM

Companies Bill is to enhance corporate governance. We must be very severe on noncompliance. The Bill is compliant with innovations in technology and markets.

The Bill also intends to nurture entrepreneurs, artisans, craftsman and ensures that no effort is spared to consult every single stakeholder. The Companies Bill will usher in a new era for our economy.

Sachin Pilot added that he will seek comments on forming rules and address imbalance towards women in the corporate sector. For the first time CSR is part of the statute.

The 2-percent CSR mandate is not a tax or a cess and corporate India is more than willing to spend money on CSR initiaitives, he highlighted.

The Bill allows companies the freedom to choose areas of work for CSR and the mandate of a rotation in auditors every 5 years gives the process added credibility.

Monsoon Cloud  
This monsoon time with darkening sky and weepy clouds,
I started raining; nights long blowing warm winds,
Cry waiting dreaming on,
I came with the monsoon to bring happiness,
And greenery everywhere
To make fields happy and people too.
As a monsoon cloud,
With thunder and lightning too. - Mahima Gehlot (Class X)

Teachers are like stars
Who shows the path to go far
Teachers  are like birds,
Who  always say sweet words,
Teachers  are like cloud.
Who make us feel proud.
Teachers are like trees
Who take great care to handle.
Teachers never allow us to get depressed
In their company we get refreshed .
Teachers are like flowers,
Whose blessings are like showers  - Vaishali Rao (Class X)

Corruption is one of the things in today’s world which is destroying the world and also life of people. Corruption is a thing which is done by people to get their work done by wrong means. It is also called bribing where one person tempts the other to do something wrong. Many people do this to make their life better and earn more money. But while doing this other peoples life is affected. It is because of corruption that deserving candidate do not get what they really deserve corruption is seen everywhere in politics, colleges, offices, hospitals , schools, etc. If this continues there will no happiness in the world. Nobody will feel secure. So, every attempt should be made to stop corruption each one must do his/her part to stop it.  - Mrs. Prerna Rathod

Point of View
Modernisation vs Westernisation
Modernisation is a culture in which everything is new. We get new ideas for our society. Everything which takes place in making our life much more comfortable is example of Modernisation. Urbanisation & industrialisation as well as to the spread of education are also good examples of modernisation. - Pooja Dutta (class IX)

Westernisation is a change that has taken place in Indian Society to a major extent. Westernisation follows the adoption of different lifestyles, cultural ways, working styles, organising styles even the behaviour pattern of western countries. Modernisation means to innovate new ideas and to utilize new techniques to improve your society whereas westernisation means to adopt western culture. There is no harm to adopt western patterns but it is really harmful when in shade of adoption of western culture we start condemning our great culture, patterns & society. So be modern not western.  - Harshita Dalawat (Class-IX)
I would like my studies to be 60% sports to be 25% & co-curricular activities to be 15%. I think that studies have a great significance in our lives. My future depends on my studies. In this competitive world your intelligence counts, but along with mental abilities you must be physically fit too. Sports also help the body to grow and develop a well mannered way. Co-curricular is also important for all round development. By participating in competitions we become confident and we also become a good speaker which is required for any interview.  - Nikhil Soni (Class- X)

According to my opinion study should be about 50% for it is compulsory for students to study. Sports should be 40% for it is necessary for our physical fitness and we should get more chance to participate in sports activities. Co-curricular activities should be 10% as it also helps to remove our stage fear & become confident.  - Rishiraj Champawat (Class-XI).
