Ms. Marika Viragh's time at The Fabindia School
During my time at the Fabindia school I have been fortunate to work with a wide variety of students in various subjects. I have spent time assisting in the English classes for grades 2,3,4, and 5 as well as grade 9. I have also taught lessons about federalism, business, farming, and agriculture to grades 9 and 11. I helped design activities and worksheets for these classes and helped the teacher in whatever way possible! I have also enjoyed my time playing with the students during their games period, whether during soccer match or basketball game. I also introduced the great game of kickball to the class 4 students! The past few weeks have been wonderful and I have most enjoyed the spirit and energy of the students!

Is Boxing a sports only man of wrath
I don't agree that boxing is a sport for only man of wrath. Boxing doesn't mean anger and all that .Anyone can take boxing as a career option if he is interested, it doesn't mean he is full of anger or dangerous. Boxing is a game and players should play it as its spirit. Many boxers who look cruel in the boxing ring are very polite, kind and jolly in their real life. During a match the person may show a lot of anger but who knows what they are in reality. To be a boxer is their choice but that doesn't mean that he is not a good person.
I conclude by writing that boxing can be chosen by anyone as a career not only man of wrath.
