SKILL
Smile
A simple smile
And a smiling heart
Shines all over miles
As it is a type of art
As you travel up and down
Remember it's quite true to say
One smile has a value of dozen frowns
Among the world’s expensive things
A smile is very cheap
And when you give a smile to any human beings
You get one back to keep
So when friends have sadness on the face
And troubles round them piled
The world will seem a better place
And all because you smiled.

नदियाँ
शिखरों से बहती नदियाँ
सागर में मिल जाती हैं
नदियों को माता हम कहते
रक्षा इसकी नहीं हम करते
धरती पर बहते अमृत की
पहचान न कर सका कोई
दूषित कर दिया अमृत को
व्याकुल हैं हर प्राणी तो
प्यास बुझाई जिसने इनकी
इसी को कर दिया दूषित
होगा जब प्रलय धरा पर
तड़पेगा यह मानव
धरती पर बहते अमृत को
अब हमें बचाना होगा।

वर्षा
गर्मी गई वर्षा आई
साथ में वो हरियाली लाई
भर गए सारे ताल तलैया
नाचे मयूर छम्मक छैया।
खेलें तो हो जाते गंदे
फिर पड़ते है हमको डंडे
आसमान में कभी गर्जना
कभी कभी जोरों से बरसाना।
नहीं आने पर छाती उदासी
आ जाने पर उल्लास जगाती।

Keynote Speaker Chief Guest Mrs. Tulsi Bhatia’s Speech

Founder Mr. William Bissell, Chairman Mr. Sandeep Dutt, Trustees, Head Boy Kushagra Singh, Head Girl Vaishali Rao, invitees, Parents, and students I am overwhelmed after these two hours that I spent in the school. The moment I entered, the kind of positive vibes that surrounded me was amazing. As Mr. Sandeep Dutt said how this place is filled with fresh air and clean water and dust below the feet, it is joy, happiness and positive vibrations that emanate from every corner.

When I was walking through the exhibitions, the way children and teachers were speaking with such pride about what they had learnt was really, really amazing and overwhelming. I am sorry; that I had to listen to every one of them because there was so much eagerness and enthusiasm that I had to! I couldn’t help, but, go through every little bit of work that they had done. My Congratulations to all the teachers here, for the wonderful job that you have done, of course, under the stewardship of Mrs. Tandon. After now, I had only known Fabindia for the past two years. I only knew Fabindia as the company who made exorbitantly expensive clothes which I could not afford, but beautiful clothes nevertheless. But after visiting this school, I am deeply humbled and touched by the kind of work that Fabindia does, hats off. The Fabindia School, the school with a heart as the children sang, heart, soul, joy, happiness, wonder, amazement, everything.

In my school I have an English Teacher who does wonderful work, but she is always in tears. This is due to her migraine, she is completely heart broken. This is what happens when you give the power of your happiness in somebody else’s hands. It is very common in India to have external focus of controlling. It is very common in India when we, whenever something wrong happens  blame it on outside forces like Shani Grah or we say my name has only four letters that’s the reason why I have not done well or earthquakes took place because of god’s anger or black magic. Why should we, when we do such a thing, when we attribute blame to the outside forces, we are not looking inside, we are not trying to find out what is actually going wrong. In the west when hurricane Katharina hit and caused disaster, mayhem everywhere, they looked inwards that is the internal focus of controlling, they looked inwards and tried to find what was wrong in their system. They tried to make amends, put things in order, in order to ensure that such things don’t happen again. That is the power that gives, that taking charge gives you. Taking charge. Be the captain of your own ship. Being on the driver’s seat of your life is what makes everyone effective. My appeal to all the Parents sitting here is, teach your children to take charge, allow them those little decisions that make them better, that are important. Let them start early so they know how to do it, let them start with what subjects they want to study, what course they would like to do. Let them make these little mistakes, they will be responsible adults, they will become more and more effective. Let them be proactive young people to take charge of their own lives and that is the most empowering gift that you can give your children. Thank you everyone for this wonderful opportunity that you all have given me.

Principal’s Annual Report 20th November’2015
Respected Principal Mrs. Tulsi Bhatia, The Heritage Girls School, Members Board of Governors, Old Boys and Girls, dignitaries from the city, Parents, guests, my dear colleagues and students, it is my privilege to welcome you all to the 23rd  Annual Day of the School.
We are indeed honoured to have among us as our honoured this evening Mrs. Tulsi Bhatia, Principal at Heritage Girls’ School, Udaipur. Nothing could be more appropriate than to have among us a person who is devoted to the cause of education. Her tenure of services has defined her vision through her work for students and her belief to help the children grow in a happy environment has been recognised in best public schools of India as my Head Girl stated- Thank you Ma’am for consenting to be with us this evening.
I cannot start my report without paying homage to the School’s founders and their vision that lives through the spirit and ethos of the school. And that is to provide affordable education with special encouragement to extend facilities to the girl child.
This evening, therefore let us pay the highest regard to the memory of Late Mr. John Bissell who has set this school apart from the rest, in its delivery and vision. At the same time the school is thankful to Mr. William Bissell for sharing and furthering the vision of his father - his unstinted support to the spirit of service and vision of girl child stands apart against the best stalwart schools of the country.

I am once again privileged to address parents on this very special occasion. Annual Day is once a year occasion which gives an opportunity to students and teachers to showcase their talent before a selected audience. While I know that everybody is waiting with bated breath for the cultural evening to start I will take but a couple of minutes to help you take a walk through the corridors of various scholastic and co-scholastic activities of the session gone by.
The Fabindia School follows a vibrant, structured and creative co-scholastic calendar integrated with the scholastic syllabus throughout the year. . Various Intra Class and Inter House Competitions are organized to expose its students to different formats and give them a platform to present their idea, creativity, talent and hone their presentation skills. These co-scholastic activities make students proactive and help develop confidence in them. These activities prove beneficial in the holistic development of our students.

SCHOOL
One of the pillars of the school is Study. Students would perform their best for Class X and XII exams.
In Class XII 6 Students achieved distinctions in all subjects out of 23 students:

In individual subjects:
9 Students got distinctions in English
10 in Hindi: 1 in Physics; 2 in Chemistry; 3 in Biology; 2 in Economics; 3 in Buisness Studies; 2 in Accountancy;

Khushboo is a live example of accomplishing our mission. She topped Pali District  with 94.6%!

In Class X out of 23 students 12 students scored between 70 to 90%.
Damini Chouhan, Khushboo Rajpurohit, Harsha Dalawat, Aditya Kansara, Silvi Mehta, Dipendra Sonigara and Krishna Choudhari…..scored 10 CGPA.

This was the first time ever that the students and parents were exposed to such an exercise.

All Blocks have been christened to honour all those families and individuals who, over the years, have quietly contributed and helped the school all these years.

School plans to extend this art to the residents of Bali too in the coming years.

New Societies and Clubs were formed for the first time in the School. They will take a while to run efficiently on their own as students suddenly find a lot on their plate.

The Disciplinary Committee with representation from staff, students and Admin was formed to make transparent decisions on any disciplinary issue. I must say, so far they have conducted themselves very transparently.

In August School’s Football Team escorted by Mr. Tarun Mishra participated in the 60th District Level Football Tournament. After very stiff competitions among 16 schools they qualified for Semi-Finals, but unfortunately lost the match against Raj Public School, Sojat.

Here also Vaishali Rao was selected as standby to represent District Pali for State Level Badminton Championship.

School’s first Inter House Debate took place this year. Students warmed up to the process very easily. I am sure we shall soon have students participating at Inter School Level.

Various trips related to subjects for hands on learning continued during the year for Pre Primary and Senior classes.

This year 24 students and 5 teachers completed their cycling expedition to Ranakpur and covered 30 Kms in a day! Their next step is to cycle to Udaipur in December or January. I am looking for schools to host us on the way and in Udaipur. I am proud to declare among these 24 cyclists there was one brave girl Vaishali Rao our Head Girl who cycled to Ranakpur them. They all need your good wishes for Udaipur now.

YOUTH
A message to disgracing youth,
Whatever, be ready to face the responsible oath.
Since the holidays are spent a lot,
So, submerged the enjoyment and all your sloth.
None gonna come to sort your living sums,
Neither past nor your blossoms.
The bounded time had came, how to mould your future,
So as to give relief to the elder tutors.
In any condition you has to serve,
Without it, you would having an emptied derv,
That doesn't seems to long last,
For which the world would be calling you a non- sensitive nerve.
For every living there would be no sympathy,
Since each youth has a sense of maturity.
And the coming world is so luxurious and digital,
That each has to function very hard for vital.

CHILD ABUSE
In the International year of the child, when the whole world is taking important steps to improve the life of children, India neglects its young and bright children. Child Abuse is much more in our country. Poor children are seen working in small factories, hotels, garages, etc. Many of them are seen picking garbage, cow dung. Some of them are begging at bus stand, in railway station and in front of temples. These children should be in schools but are abused. Poverty, Ignorance, Economic compulsions, etc. is some factors that make them work. Public awareness and total ban on child labour can only save this situation. So, stop child labouring because children are the future of the world.

THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK
When present is good past is repaired and future is prepared.
Set your goal first stay focus and then you'll succeed.
Don’t take rest after your first victory because if you fail in second,
more lips are waiting to say that your first victory was just luck”.
Forgot the past, it's dead and gone. Live for the future, it's arrived and full of potential.

My first cycling trip is what I can never forget. I enjoyed a lot. I love cycling and I cycle everyday to Bali from Shri Sela to my friend’s house but I had never thought that I could go on a trip. I was very happy when I got this opportunity to go on a cycling trip. I will remember this day always and want to go for more trips like this.

Even in my wildest dreams I had never thought that I could go cycling to Ranakpur and travel 29 kms. I am really proud to be the only girl student out of the 23 students to go on a cycling trip. When I did not see any girl for cycling, I was a bit disheartened and wanted to quit but thanks to Principal Ma’am and my mother who kept on motivating me to go on this trip. I am grateful to all to give me this opportunity. It was for the first time in my eleven years in this school that I saw such a trip being organized in the school. I enjoyed this day and it was my most unforgetful day. Now my confidence level has boosted up and I can participate in this type of activities. I enjoyed a lot.

दिल की गहराइयाँ
दिल की गहराइयों में राज़ छुपाकर रखना ।
किताबों के पन्नों में मेरा नाम छुपाकर रखना ।
आँसू की कीमत बड़ी अनमोल होती हैं
इन्हे पलकों में छुपाकर रखना
देख न सके इन गहराइयों को कोई कभी
चेहरे पर वो मुस्कान सजाकर रखना
लाख चेहरे बनाए दुनिया मगर
ऐ भानु चेहरे पर नकाब ही सही ।
हँसी का सेहरा सजाए रखना ,
हँसने को तो सभी हँसते है हँसी में ,
किसी के दुख में रोने का जज़्बा रखना ।
कश्तिया तो कई डूब जाती है मझधार में
तूफानों से पार निकलने का दम रखना ।
ये तो जीवन के चार - पाँच दिन है ,
जीवन को जीवन की तरह जिन्दा रखना ।
क्या फर्क पड़ता है कोई साथ तुम्हारे
पर तुम हर किसी के कंधे पर हाथ रखना ।
Bhanupratap Singh/XB/GH
AIR POLLUTION
Air is one of the most important thing that is required to survive. We breathe air thousands and millions of time in a day. If we will not breathe a single minute then we will die. The pollution of air is due to over use of vehicles, etc. had led to this air being polluted. The pollution of air is  a major problem rising all around the world. It is not only causing damage to environment but also causing a number of disease and major damage to National heritages and monuments. It is tit for tat, today we are not caring for environment but soon a day will come when environment will laugh on us and will not care for us. So it is better that we change with time otherwise time will change us. We should at least plant one tree in a year and care for it. I guarantee that soon 121 crore people of India will give rise to 121 crore trees in an year which will not only free us from pollution but also will give us fruits, paper, etc. So we should understand our duties and take steps towards it to save mother Earth and humanity.

THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK
Three things never come back, the wasted time, neglected opportunities and spoken words. So think twice and act thrice.
Success is a vehicle which moves on the wheel name. But the journey is impossible without the fuel name.
If a drop of water falls in a lake it has no identity but if it falls on a flower it shines like a pearl. So choose best place to shine.
If you want peace, do not find fault with others, rather see your own faults. Learn to make the world your own No one is a stranger, the whole world is your own.
Just as gold is tested by fire, in the same way a great man is tested by difficulties.
