 Student musings - young writers and staff share their skill of writing 
Teachers are like stars,
Who show the path to go far
Teachers are like birds,
Who always say sweat words
Teachers are like clouds,
Who make us feel pride
Teachers are like trees,
Who strive to keep us tension free
Teachers are like candles,
Who take great care to handle
Teachers never allow us to go depressed
In their company we get refreshed
Teachers are like flowers
Whose blessings are like showers.

Dowry System
Dowry originated in upper caste family as a wedding gift to the bride from a family. The dowry was later given to help with marriage expenses and became a form of insurance. Although dowry was legally prohibited in 1961, it continued to be highly institutionalized. A bridegroom often demands a dowry consisting of large sum of money, furniture, electronics, etc.
The practice of dowry abuse is rising in India. The most severe is “bride burning” in which women are burnt whose dowries were not considered sufficient by their husband. Most of these incidents are disguised as suicide. Before dowry is used to give financial security to women but today it has been distorted and assumed the shape of evil so, it must be stopped.-Uttam suthar/XA/ GH
