Ed: Which subjects do you study there?
K.A: There is no choice of subjects. I have to study all four subjects i.e. Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Math.

Ed: Do you see any change in the Education System of the South?
K.A: Yes, their education system is better than ours. Their standard of studies is very good .In Rajasthan you can take Biology or Math, but in Kerala you have to take both, you can’t say that I don’t want to opt this subject. They have reached ahead of us in each and every aspect of Education.

Ed: Is your institution Co-Ed.?
K.A:  Yes, we all study together. If my lab mate is a girl and if I don’t talk with her then my grades are deducted. We can’t discriminate and we have to talk to girls whether we wish or not. The people there are frank and helpful.

Ed: What message would you like to give the students of Science Batch?
K.A: According to me Science is the best subject, it has the maximum scope .Most of us see it as complicated subject, but in reality it is not. If we find any topic difficult we should simplify the topics, to understand it more easily. We should not feel scared of any subject. We should not be frustrated, work hard, simplify things don’t make anything complicated. Work hard and you will achieve success.

बोल क्या चाहता है तू।
क्या है तेरी चाह।
जहाँ होती है चाह
वहाँ मिल जाती है राह।
पाना चाहता है जो भी
तू इस जीवन में,
आ मेरे पास
सब कुछ मिल जायेगे
बस याद रख मेरी बात
सारी दुनिया होगी तेरे साथ।
समय है बड़ा बलवान
इसकी शक्ति पहचान,
समय पर कर्म कर,
कर्म पर विश्वास कर,
कर्म समय का जोड़ा निराला
पहचाने योगी और विरला।
जोड़े धन-यश अपार।
तेरे जीवन तेरी मुट्ठी में
कर्म का पहिया, समय की धूरी
दोनों का होगा  साथ
तेरी हर चाह पूरी।

Environment is the word which we use in our daily life. It means the condition around us, in which the people, animal plants etc. live. Nowadays, it is polluted by us. Each person is the reason for the environmental pollution. We only can save our environment by giving our contribution in this. We are only alive because of the environment.
If there is no environment, there would be no plants, no animals, no people and no atmosphere. Atmosphere is the part of our environment, but we are polluting it by burning plastics and other harmful substances. Due to which, there is a beginning of a hole in the Ozone layer and the atmospheric temperature is increasing. We can save the environment by throwing garbage in the dustbin, not turn the plastic bags, recycle the newspaper, old notebooks, books and the other thing which are of no use.
And make a habit of recycle, reuse, reduce each and every thing which is useless. Craft is the best example of reuse, newspaper we can recycle and we can reduce the use of plastic bags. We all have to plant more and more trees and also have the habit of doing this, because it give us benefit.
At last, I want to tell that please plant a tree in year to protect environment.

Environment and Us
The word environment refers to our surrounding .Whatever is present in our surrounding that is called environment. Environment includes plants, trees, animals, birds, rivers, mountain etc. Environment is a gift of nature in which we live. Our environment was created very beautifully and we must not damage our environment. Now days, because of water pollution, pure water is very less in the environment.
We cut trees for our need but if cut more and more trees then the eco-system will become unbalanced and due to this more carbon dioxide will be formed and it will result in Global warming and Green House Effect. Due to pollution created by our vehicles, many diseases occur and create problems in our environment. We have many natural resources which we use and over-utilized them.
A phrase is there that a man’s need can be satisfied but a man’s greed never satisfies. We can save our environment by using our resources judiciously and by planting more trees. Then we can live healthy and pollution free life. As a citizen of India we must not pollute our environment.
Our prime minister Mr.Narendra Modi also started a movement on 2nd October 2014 called the ‘clean India (Swachya Bhaarat Abhiyan). We must also become the part of this and help to reduce garbage.
