Star
Oh star! You are always shining
And also very good in twinkling.
Oh star! I don’t know what you are
Because you are so far.

Oh star! Please shine again and again
When everyone sleep only you remain.
Oh star! You looks very beautiful
When sky is peaceful.

Oh star! You are so lovable
And your brothers are uncountable.
Oh star! Your family have many members

Oh God Corruption
In this time,
Let the Sun shine,
Because it's the only thing
Which reaches us on time
Without any fine,
Because in its way
No one is corrupted

In the world,
No one can be trusted
Because everyone is corrupted.
People do not get their pensions.
Officers show some tensions.

In the greed to get some ransom
Even the education system is corrupted,
Admissions without donations are unrestricted
First, money was the basic need
People now let the money talk
Instead of the talent to rock.

Oh, God corrupted
Please guide someone
To dust the corruption
Corruption is like the black
Dot on the moon
Which will soon
Cover the entire moon
Hema Choudhary/XII

जवान
हे जवान,
करता हूँ मैं तुझे सलाम।
तू है हमारा रक्षक,
तूने मिटाए कितने भक्षक।

माँ माना इस धरती को तूने,
दे दिया बलिदान।
गोली खाई सीने में ,
अपनाई देश भक्ति की राह।

हे जवान,
है तू बड़ा महान
फ़ौज में होते हो भर्ती छोड़कर मोह-माया,
तपते हो तुम धूप में देकर हमको छाया।
जहाँ तुम्हें याद करेगा,

करेगी ये जमीन।
तुम बॉर्डर पर मरते हो,
देकर हमें चैन की नींद।

हे जवान,
करता हूँ मैं तुझे सलाम।

Book
A book is a friend
A book has no end

A book is a tale
Which does not let you fail

Its pages have got
A number of thoughts

That does not use knife
But deals with life

It is a book
Who by its recipes makes you cook

It is like a big rocket
That fits in your pocket

The Exchange
This trip to Maharani Gayatri Devi Girls School Jaipur was a very enriching experience for me and for my friends. From this school we came to know what life is once you live away from home. How one has to make decisions all alone- without help of parents. We observed many new things about science and technology. We also learnt about astronomy. We also adopted many kinds of good habits like waking up early morning and having our food with discipline. We learnt the value of music in our life from Mr. Vishal Bhatt. The students of MGD school were friendly by nature, so we easily connected with them. There were about 4000 students and about 150 teachers. The best thing that I like was that the whole school live like a joint family. Thus it was a lifetime experience and we will never forget this trip.

Exchange Program at Maharani Gayatri Devi School, Jaipur (October 12 to October 18, 2014)
Schools are an amazing place to learn. However old one turns, one can never stop learning. This is how I felt when I escorted 7 girls on an Exchange Programme to MGD.

We stayed at one of the oldest and finest school established by Maharani Gayatri Devi of Jaipur, Maharani Gayatri Devi School.

The seven day program was full of enthusiasm, discoveries, experiences, fun and frolic. It was a great learning experience for both the Escort Teacher and students.

They were made to stay in the hostel of the school to know better about the hostel life of girls. They visited entire school campus and saw different rooms for every activity like music room, art and craft room, astronomy room etc. They were also allocated the evening time to play sports with the hostellers. The MGD school provides its students with 12 varieties of sports like swimming, cricket, karate, basketball etc. Every girl from The Fabindia School was given an opportunity to select a game of her choice and play with their buddies. They had a fixed routine for everyday. Right from Assembly, which was a fun exercise, where students prayed to God along with getting updated with the latest happenings around the globe.

Our girls also had an opportunity to study and attend classes and experience audio-visual lectures, to which they were quite new. They attended various in-school activities. First, they learnt how to design their own constellation out of their name. Girls also attended the craft workshop where they made articles out of clay. They learnt to make some beautiful decorative items out of clay. They attended cookery classes conducted by their buddies, where they learnt to cook some healthy food items like baked vegetables, fruit items along with understanding the basics of cooking.

The seven day program was so designed to enable our girls to experience hostel life as well as life in a big city like Jaipur and the study pattern at a world class school. Their efforts were applauded and appreciated. They also got a chance to meet Maharani Vidya Devi and go for sight- seeing in Jaipur to witness some of the historical and beautiful tourist spots. Overall, it ended to be one of the greatest learning experience for all.

In this two days workshop the teachers learnt a lot about Formative Assessment and how to carry it out in all the classes. Many doubts were cleared and in the end it proved to be a useful workshop and a great learning experience of how to conduct and assess Formatives in the class.
