In the heart of your child
Because of your sweet love
Which blessed the mankind

My Pet Cat
I have a cat
Who loves to be wet
Her name is Cherry
Who loves to be merry
Her fur is white
She loves to be quiet
At times she snaps at others
When someone bothers
She is a daring pet of mine
Who stays with me all the time.

Girl Education
Girl education is one of the most common issues of India. Out of the vast population of India about 70 % of the people do not support girl education, especially in villages. They are not aware of various programs and facilities available to educate girls. They are conservative in their thinking regarding education for girls. They are apprehensive to empower the girl child with education. Issues of looking after family and bringing up a family rise and this is very central to villages. They think that a girl must marry and go to her in-law’s house. They believe it is a waste investing in their education.
Today, government supports girls education in every possible way. Our school also supports girls education and its slogan is “Empowering the girl child people through education”. School gives scholarships to girls so parents do not have to pay fees for their daughters. This is one step to encourage girl child education in rural areas. We should support girl education in every possible way, because girls are no less than boys. They are equally important in a democratic country like India.

भगत सिंह जयंती
आज 28 सितम्बर 2014 भगत सिंह की 107 वीं जयंती है। पूरे भारत में जब भगत सिंह के यह दो नारे लगे 'इंकलाब जिंदाबाद' और 'वन्दे मातरम' तब ऐसा लगा कि अब हमारा भारत युवाओं के बल पर ही आज़ाद होगा। सन 1905 में 'वन्दे मातरम' को  हमारा राष्ट्रीय नारा बनाया। जब महात्मा गांधी और नेहरू जैसे नेता पूरे भारत में अहिंसा के लिए जाने जाते थे, ऐसे में भगत सिंह जैसे गरम दल के सदस्य ने अपने नारो से पूरे भारत की तमाम जनता का ध्यान खींचा। इन नारों में उन्हें बिना समझौते किये, लड़ते रहने का संकल्प तथा दरिद्रता एवं कष्ट को सदा के लिए दूर कर एक नए सामाजिक व्यवस्था को स्थापित करने की आशा दिखी। लोगों ने इसे दूसरे राजनीतिक दलों से अधिक सम्मान दिया। भगत सिंह को भी गांधीजी की तरह एक अलौकिक नायक के रूप में प्रतिष्ठित करने वालों की भी कमी नहीं थी। लोग उनके एक नारे पर अपनी जान लुटा देते थे।
