SKILL
निमित्त मात्र
जान किसी की जागीर नहीं
ये तो कर्मवानों की दोलत है|
जिसने जानी जान की महिमा
पाई उसने शोहरत है|
वक्त किसी के हाथ नहीं
सब वक्त के साथ होता है|
'मैं' जो करता हूँ, वो मैं नहीं
वक्त जो करता, वही तो होता है|
मेहनत करने वाला मजदूर नहीं होता
मजदूरी करने वाला मजदुर नहीं होता
हर कोई पाता है परिश्रम से
वर्ना कोई कभी अमीर नहीं होता|
मतभेद भले हो, मनभेद नहीं
तकरार भले हो, नफरत नहीं
साधन बनाओ किसी को साध्य नहीं
नहीं बाध्य है कोई मजबुर नहीं
जो दिखता है, जानो, वो सत्य नहीं
तुम भी तो एक निमित्त मात्र हो
समझो सब कुछ, पर लेशमात्र भी नहीं

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.

Today we went to Ranakpur on cycle. There were 23 students. I want to thank Principal to allow Class VIII for this trip. I enjoyed my trip. While cycling many people asked us that what school we were from. We indicated our T shirts to them. My first trip on cycle will always be unforgettable.

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.
Yuvraj Singh/VIII A/RH
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.
