Nature a pure gift of god
Nature is the most precious and valuable gift that God has given us. Nature has made our life easy by providing us things of our daily living. Nature takes cares of us, helps and nurtures us like a mother. So we should thank God for giving us such as pure gift. If we sit in the surrounding of nature we can feel the peace and enjoy a lot. Nature is full of beauty that is why earth is called city of the garden.  Human beings cut down trees and are destroying the gift of the God for their selfish motives. It helps to keep us away from many diseases and keeps our body healthy. Many poets have written poems on nature and people do yoga in the beauty of nature to keep their body strong and healthy. Nature is the best wall of the environment.

Discipline – A requisite of good schools
‘Discipline is the key to success’ – this saying holds true for all the people at all the time. Discipline is the training of mind to make it follow rules and orders of high authority. Life without discipline is like a ship without a rudder. It is important for everyone to be in discipline. 
It plays a significant role in a student’s life. Discipline is an important virtue. It is necessary for expressing other virtues. It implies our respect to physical and moral laws. As a student we must obey our teachers. We must keep our school clean. We must follow the rules and regulation of the school. To lead a happy life discipline is necessary. Discipline helps us in various ways. If we are in discipline at all the times, then teachers will also like us. But if we are not in discipline, then nobody will like us discipline is a requisite of good student.
Discipline is the self-control and dedication. So we should try to be in discipline from the early stage for life at school at home in making a good society as well as nation too.
Khushi Rao/X/GH
Declining Of Moral Values
Moral values were always the best and most important symbol of a good Indian society. Moral values are those values which we get as a gift from our elders; it descends one generation to other, in general. Moral values, in other words, is same as DNA which is similar , may be similar with your great grandparents if it is given to the next generation in the right form.  Today in the modern world where all things are greatly changed as compared to five – four decades earlier by , the moral values which we inherit are also been affected by it.
Today the teenagers and even elders feel ashamed of touching the feet of their elders, which is very strange. Moral values they were considered pride of India, now has converted into a harsh rule which has to be followed because our parents tell us but they do just the opposite. This is the mentality of today’s generation. Moral Values in these days seem to be declining. Is it a good thing? Surely ‘No’, a big no. Moral values are seen neglected by us. Moral values have become inversely proportional to modernity. As modernity increases, morality decreases. It has become a trend for teenagers to be modern to survive in this world, but that doesn’t means they forget moral values. Moral values were always the soil of Indian bodies, but now due to modernity they have declined. Indians were always considered the most decent people, but the breeze of modernity has changed them.
Moral values were considered as a symbol of a good reputed family, but today in the modern world those who are modern are considered as a good reputed family. Moral values, the heart of our nation is declining day to day. It’s a great threat to our culture, traditions and humanity.

बचपन के ये दिन नहीं 
ये हैं यादों का ख़ज़ाना । 
रोज़ - रोज़ लड़ते झगड़ते 
नया संसार रचाना । 
दोस्तों के संग पैदल - पैदल 
अनमने से स्कूल जाना । 
छुट्टी होते ही बड़ी चाव से ,
घर की ओर दौड़ लगाना । 
ये बचपन के दिन नहीं 
ये है यादों का खज़ाना । 
थके - थके से घर पहुँचे 
पर खेलने तो जरूर जाना । 
मम्मी की प्यारी डाँट सुनकर 
धीरे - धीरे मुस्कुराना । 
ये बचपन के दिन नहीं 
ये है यादों का खज़ाना । 
न कोई चिंता न कोई डर 
मनमर्ज़ी के हम हो राजा । 
लाख करोड़ यत्न करे कोई
न है बचपन लौटाना । 
ये अनमोल वक़्त के ठहरे लम्हे 
नामुमकिन है इन्हे भूल पाना 
ये बचपन के दिन नहीं 
ये है यादों का खज़ाना । 
याद रखना बचपन को ,
मन के हर एक कोने में सजाना

The Time never stops
Nor does it wait
Thus it has second
Minutes and dates
Whole world is on the
Balance of Time
If you miss or waste time,
It is a big crime
Remember this ever,
Forget this never
Past is history
Future is mystery
The value of Time
Is uncountable
The Time had variation
Never ever it is stable
For heaven sake
Don't leave your Time behind
Otherwise Time will be cruel
Not kind

Only A Dad
Only a dad, with a tired face.
Coming home from the daily race.

Bringing little of gold or fame,
To show how well he has played the game,
But glad in his heart that his own rejoice
To see him come, and to hear his voice.

Only a dad, with a brood of four,
One of ten million men or more.
Padding along in the daily strife,
Bearing the whips and the scorns of life,
With never whimper of pain or hate,
For the sake of these who at home await.

Only a dad, neither rich nor proud,
Merely one of the surging crowd
Toiling, striving from day to day,
Facing whatever may come his way,
Silent whenever the harsh condemn,
And bearing it all for the love of them.

Only a dad, but he gives his all
To smooth the way for his children small,
Doing, with courage stern and grim,
The deeds that his father did for him
This is the line that for him I pen,
Only a dad, but the best of men.

Happiness is going to school!
Partner in crime,
Together forever,
A lemon and lime.

Normal as can be,
Love you always,
Special to me,

A rock star kid,
Good times and bad,
Astonishing charges,
You are trending afraid.

Special needs if you please,
But retarded that word never,
Should you speak.

A heart of gold,
One unusual soul,
A special young man, so very bold,

Looking for friends,
The words just don’t seem right,
This is not very fair,
Seemingly cannot take flight.

He is my little brother.
He means the world to me.
He can call him autistic but
He will always be the sugar in my tea.

जबसे डाला है रंग तुमने अपना,
अपने कजरारे नैनों से,
मैं तो खड़ी खड़ी भीग गयी,
कान्हा की मुस्कान से।

मैं तो श्याम तेरी हु दीवानी,
नई नई हूँ या समझो पुरानी,
रंग ही रंग गई हूँ,
नई कोई चाहत नहीं इस जीवन में।

खेलू होली ,नाचू रास तेरे संग में,
गाय चराऊ वन जंगल, घुमू फिरू,
यमुना तट पर बेथ कदम्ब की डाली,
सो जाऊ तेरी मूरली की धून मैं।

बेथ सजाऊ घर आँगन दिनेश अपना,
लटकाऊ घघरी भर कर माखन,
बैठी हूँ आस लगाए ,देख रही हु राह,
कब आयेगे मेरी चौखट,माखन चोर मेरे साजन।

Bali experienced warm and pleasant weather. Mornings have a nip in the air. Use of A.C. and coolers has stopped during the nights. Fans are being used during daytime, when it turns a bit warm. Highest temperature recorded was at 37°C and lowest was at 23°C. Temperature fell by 4°C while humidity fell to 48%. Wind blew 14 km/hr SE.
Why that figured man had gone,
The terrific talent he had shown,
For the country's freedom did his best,
and the tricks he had used on,
Even the professionals considered him a role model,
With whom that fighting spirit was
Enthusiastic and doddle,
Which was not available in all,
For what all calls him " BAPU" of sharp noodle,
For where that living ran out,
For whom our belonging spirit shout,
"That he was our national leader",
Who at last faced that dying bout,

Today also, he is each heart for guidance,
And for the steps one take towards future and hence,
Every being should be motivated by him,
For protecting our nation while working as a lance.
Nikhil Soni/XB/TH

एक आशा ''बापू''
सूरज की किरणों ने जैसे बदला अपना रास्ता था ।
हुआ उदय अहिंसावादी का जो दो अक्टूबर को जन्मा था ॥
बदल दिया था दुनिया को उसने ,
रंग गया था अपने रंग में ,
उसने ये ही ठाना था ,
भारत को अखण्ड बनाना था ।
दांडी मार्च , सत्याग्रह , आंदोलन और
अनशन को भी आजमाया था ।
आखिर योगदान उनका आया काम
मिल ही गया आज़ादी का सुख
जब भारत को सत्ता सौंपा जाना था ।
जश्न  मना भारत और
नए युग का लिखा जाना था
मगर साथ था इस सुख का तब तक
जब बापू का पंच तत्व में विलीन हो जाना था ।
आज बापू नहीं विचार है उनके
जिसे हमें अपनाना हैं ।
फिर से करना है इस सृष्टि का निर्माण
हिंसा को रुकवाना हैं ।
Bhanu Pratap Singh/XB/GH

1. I am always hungry

    The finger I lick will soon turn red.
2. All about, but cannot be seen
    Cannot be captured, cannot be held
    No throat, but can be heard
3. If a man carried my burden
    He would break his back
    I am not rich
    But leave silver in my track.
4. Until I am measured
     I am not known,
     Yet you miss me
     When I have flown
5.  Bright as diamond
     Loved as thunder
     Never still, a thing to wonder.
