Neglect of the elderly- a depressing phenomenon
The feeling of loneliness and insecurity is now becoming common and the old people are avoided by the modern age. This is increasing day by day due to the introduction of the new social and western ideas. They think old people as a burden and try to neglect them. They face many problems, income problems, social problems etc. According to the census of 1991 the senior people constituted 15% of the total population and 5% are over age of 60.
Many children settle abroad and leave their old parents in their house alone and helpless. This problem is mostly seen in cities because people of villages still live in joint families. They live together and celebrate every festival as a one big family. One solution of this is that old people should work as a community and support each other as there is little support from the young society.

Trees here, trees there,
Trees are everywhere.
A special gift of God,
To save the son of lord.
Trees are wonderful,
With flowers beautiful.
Trees are a boon,
With fruits colorful .
Looking beautiful to everyone!
Whether big or small, to save the earth,
Trees are a must.
Pledge to plant a tree,
For a better future!

लाजवाब स्वाद
'स्वाद' वह शब्द है जिससे खाने की महत्ता का बोध होता है। जब भोजन में स्वाद ही न हो वह भोजन नीरस होता है, और जिस भोजन में स्वाद हो तो वह अपने आप ही श्रेष्ठ कहलाता है।
भारत एक ऐसा देश है जहाँ कश्मीर से कन्याकुमारी तक अलग-अलग भोजन में कईं प्रकार के स्वाद मिलते हैं। इसी बेहतर स्वाद से  वह भोजन स्वादिष्ट बनता है। इस दुनिया में एक भारत में ही हमें हर दूसरी जगह पर एक नए स्वाद का प्रमाण मिलता है। अन्य देशों के लोग जो अपना कुछ समय में बिता चुके है वह आज भी भारत के भोजन और उसके स्वाद के दीवाने हैं। पंजाब की मक्की की रोटी और सरसों का साग ,राजस्थान का दाल-बाटी-चूरमा, लखनऊ का शाही कबाब, दक्षिण भारत के इडली सांभर तथा मसाला डोसा, गुजरात का खमण-ढोकला, मुंबई के पावभाजी तथा वडापाव, इत्यादि। भारत के प्रमुख स्थानों का लोकप्रिय भोजन है, जिनके स्वाद का दुनिया लोहा मनाता है।

पिंजरे का पंछी
मैं पिंजरे का पंछी
कैसे आजादी का गीत गाऊँ,
दशा कैसी है मेरी बंद पिंजरे में,
कैसे अपना हाल  सुनाऊँ,
चाह होती है मेरी भी,
उडूं-उडूं चलूँ मुक्त गगन में,
नाचू खेलूँ झूमूँ डाली पर,
चहकूं मस्त चमन में,
पहाड़ों की चोटी को छूकर
पीऊँ मैं बहती नदियों का पानी,
खेतों की खड़ी फसलें बिखेरूँ,
सुने कौन मेरी  पराधीन कहानी

Dreaming Success
A dream is a hope, a wish and an aspiration. Dreams are our ultimate destination, which represents what and why in our life. People always shy away from following their dreams. This is because they doubt their success.  They are always pulled down with the fear of failure. If we are confident and do not lose faith in ourselves, then we can attain success easily and fulfill our dreams. If we build castles in the air, we should make solid foundation underneath first, then they will not be lost. The foundation  should be in the form of hard work, perseverance and determination. If a mountain of troubles comes your way, don't sit to cry, but instead try and try. Dream is your right, but for that it is your duty to struggle. To achieve the sky and to fly, will power is what you need.
Don't forget the words of William Arthur ‘If you can dream it, you can become it.

(NOTE: This poem was recited by Mr. Krishen Gopal on the occasion of Hindi Day)
The word ‘Examination’ is what the students have always feared. It demands a lot of concentration. The students should learn to de-stress and manage time and energy. Examinations are not so harsh in today's world then why should we fear. Grading system today has changed everything. No one wants to go through exams, as the outcome is not known. Grades ease the stress, since competitions to the decimal level is eliminated. Parents are also strict with their children during examinations. They want their child to be toppers, which increases their stress.
Hard- working and serious students are adversely affected. But I want to give a message to my dear friends that they should not fear exams. They must just perform, enjoy and study finer points of a subject.

हिंदी दिवस
भारत में  प्रतिवर्ष 14 सितम्बर को हिंदी दिवस मनाया जाता है। 14 सितम्बर 1949 को भारत की संविधान सभा ने हिंदी को भारत की राजभाषा घोषित किया था। आज भी उस ऐतिहासिक फैसले को याद करने के लिये हम इस दिन को हिंदी दिवस के रूप में मनाते है। भारत विभिन्न भाषाओं वाला देश है। यहाँ अनेक भाषाएँ बोली जाती है परन्तु पूरे देश को एकता के साथ बाँधने वाली एकमात्र भाषा हिंदी ही है। आज सब जगह अंग्रेजी का बोलबाला ही नजर आ रहा है। शिक्षा और अन्य कामों में भी अंग्रेजी का उपयोग हो रहा है। परन्तु यह भी सच है कि दैनिक कामों और मनोरंजन में हिंदी का ही उपयोग होता है जैसे समाचार पत्र, धारावाहिक, विज्ञापन, खरीदारी तथा अधिकतर बातचीत आदि सभी में हिन्दी का ही बोलबाला है। हिन्दी भाषा न केवल देश की भाषा है बल्कि आम जन के दिल से जुडी हुई है। आज हम भले ही अंग्रेजी भाषा का उपयोग कर रहे है लेकिन हिन्दी हमारे बीच सदा रहेगी और कभी भी अपना वर्चस्व कम नहीं होने देगी।
Wednesday, 10th September: Evaluation I started for classes I to V. All the students seemed busy in their studies due to forth coming. Revisions are in full swing. Teachers are busy giving worksheets to carry out the activities organized in the class.

Wednesday, 3rd September: A beautiful invitation card was made by Naushad Ali (XII Science), to invite teachers on the occasion of Teacher’s Day.  The card spoke of creativity and innovativeness. Thank you Naushad for taking pains on our behalf!

Staff enjoyed a party hosted by the school. They were gifted as a token of appreciation of their hard work towards the school. We hope teachers enjoyed the day!

Somebody has said very correct that “something is better than nothing “,so we should keep doing work to get success. Success is not that you can buy it or not that you can take it from someone else but that which we have to achieve. If you want to achieve it you should work hard. To achieve it we should go through a correct way otherwise it would not be a correct one.
It’s not very rewarding to get success but it’s very rewarding to remain a successful person. Only people are not successful or unsuccessful but countries can also be categorized as successful or unsuccessful. What is a successful country? It not depends upon the success of the government of country but it depends on the success of the government of a country but it depends on the success of people of the country. There are three types of countries; first, which are successful, second, which are in the way to get success and third, which cannot become a successful one
At last, the development of any person, country or else is the success. So, we should keep working because success leads to liberation which is very important in one’s life.

तुम पाओ सफलता, तुम पाओ सफलता 
उस मन को वश में करके ।      
तुम डूब जाओ सफलता के सागर में 
एकाग्र होकर ।
तुम डूब जाओ उस सफलता रुपी कार्य में 
मग्न होकर।
तुम छोड़ दो सोचने सपने 
तुम छोड़ दो सोचना परिणाम ।
बना दो कमज़ोरी को अपनी ताकत 
हटा दो वह भय मन से ।
तुम पाओ सफलता, तुम पाओ सफलता 
उस मन को वश में करके ।

My Mother 
She is the one who makes me smile,
She is the one who helps to make my project file.

She applies on my face, cream,
And fulfills my dream!

I am thankful to God,
As she cares for me a lot!

She makes me drink milk,
And gives me medicine when I’m ill.

She is everywhere where I go.
She is a bow and I an arrow.

Earth is nothing without Sun.
So am I without her.
- Priyank Rathod (Class IX)
दूरदर्शन का अर्थ है जो दूर के दर्शन करवाएँ। इसके कारण हम आज एक कमरे में बैठकर पूरी दुनिया की जानकारी ले सकते हैं। यह संचार का एक महत्वपूर्ण साधन है। यह न केवल मनोरंजन के लिए बल्कि विभिन्न प्रकार की जानकारियाँ भी प्रदान करता है। दूरदर्शन से हम फ़िल्में, गाने, धारावाहिक, समाचार इत्यादि देख सकते हैं। किन्तु इससे एक हानि भी है कि हम एक दायरे में सिमट गए हैं। यदि इसका सही उपयोग किया जाए तो ज्ञान प्राप्ति का महत्वपूर्ण साधन बन सकता है। लगातार देखने से आँखों पर अनुचित प्रभाव पड़ सकता है। जैसा कि कहा जाता है अति सर्वथा वर्जयेत अर्थात आवश्यकता से अधिक नुकसानदेय होता है। जरुरत के अनुसार उपयोग करें तो विष भी औषधि का काम कर सकती है। अतः हमें इसका उपयोग सोच समझकर आवश्यकतानुसार करना चाहिए। यह संचार का एक महत्वपूर्ण साधन है क्योंकि दृश्य श्रव्य साधन है। आजकल यह सुलभ भी है।

Teacher of the Month
In order to recognise new teaching ideas and practices, the school has begun to recognise its teachers through "Teacher of the Month". The Staff meets at the end of the month and shares any new methodology in class teaching that they tried during the month and how it worked for them. Once all have shared, in a very democratic way they decide which teacher's work deserves to be appreciated and unanimously select the "Teacher of the Month".

Our congratulations to Mr. Suresh Negi for being our first Teacher of the Month (August) for 2014-15!

The School Weekly is compiled by Bharti Rao for The Fabindia School.
