The School Weekly - 30th May 2016

Mera Bali
Bali is a town which is situated on the left of the banks of Mithari River. As Bali witnesses less rainfall we do not find much vegetation around the place. The flora of Bali includes that type of vegetation which is found in desert areas. Modad, khair, dhavado, saledi, kadaya, timru, khakhara, bor, desi bavalia, bili, dudhi, golar, karanj, arjun sadad, jamun, behda etc. are some local names for common species found here. The common species found here are - Aam (Magnifera Indica), Imli (Tamarindicus indica), Babul (Accasia nilotica), Banyan (Ficus benghalensis), Ber (Zizyphus mauritania), Dhak or Chila (flame of the forest), Jamun (Syzygium cumini), Kadam (Authocephalus cadamba), Khajur (Phoenix sylvestris), Khair (Accacia catechu), Karel (Capparis decidua), Khejda (Prosopis specigera), Kakera (Flacourtia indica), Mohua (Madhuca indica), Neem (Azadirachta indica), etc. The area around Bali is the hub of Leopards. The Jawai Leopard Conservation Zone is where we can experience the close encounter with this beautiful animal from the cat family.
The other common animals that you may see are the sheep, goats, cows, buffaloes, wild boar, wolf, jackal, monkeys, blue bull, python and black buck. The most common birds of the area are the bulbul, grey hornbill, woodpecker, Indian roller, peafowl, shrikes, barbets and many raptors.
The nearest Wildlife Sanctuary is situated in Ranakpur 30 kilometers from Bali. It is an attraction for those people who love to hike and trek.
People are mostly farmers and mostly grow crops like maize, gram, bajra, cotton and mustard. They are also indulged in dairy farming.
Teachers for the PDP Session are divided into five groups. With their group leaders teachers had their PDP session last week in which they had discussed on Sensitivity. They shared their experiences with their teammates. Some of the experiences shared were published in the last edition of the news weekly. The experiences that were left to be published are as follows:
Group 2
Sensitivity for Teachers.
Sensitivity is a quality related to feelings of a person. It is what a person feels for another person and is present in each person. It includes feeling like love, care, compassion and respect for others. It also includes anger, jealousy and hatred.
A teacher must be sensitive towards students. If a child gets an environment of love and care they will be able to learn quickly and in a better way. They will solve their difficulties by clearing their doubts with the help of a teacher. But if teacher is harsh and scolds the students, they will never be able to clear their doubts. And the result will be students getting less marks in tests and exams. A teacher-student relation must be of trust, love and care. If students have any difficulty they can freely speak to their teacher and clear their doubts.  Each teacher must be sensitive to their students.-PRD
Difference between Sensitivity and Empathy
Empathy is the ability to pick up on another’s feeling, or even senses. Empathy allows the person to have a first hand experience of what another person is feeling as that person "feels" similar feelings. It’s a shared sensation. Empathy sometimes has trouble differentiating between his/her feelings and that of others.
Being sensitive is similar but different. One can be sensitive to another’s feelings and through facial expression, body language etc, can interpret what the other person is feeling, but unlike an empathy, they don't actually share the same emotions.-UGI
Cultural Sensitivity
I am talking about classroom practice for a teacher. A culturally sensitive teacher is one who is aware and addresses the student’s cultural and ethnic needs as well their social, emotional and cognitive needs in order to obtain the students’ cooperation.This will be done in such a ways:
Oral presentation of students’ native and regional cultural programme
Discussing current event from student multicultural view point.
Regional places history, development, value chart should be display.
Display all legends person of native and country, their responsibility through their sensitiveness.
Awareness of socio-cultural differences between students.
Use good and proper language in class room.
Involvement of students with events and activity should be freely and sensitively through the respect of    their cultural value.
Teacher will be good and polite with students.
Communication and interaction needs for individual students.
So classroom practice is more important for our education, nation, culture and society.   That’s why culturally responsible for all person specially a Teacher, because teacher is a backbone of society.-HSR
Easily upset by the things people say or do or causing people to be upset, embarrassed, or angry. Sensitivity can be described by the feeling of heart.It may be good or bad. When people say something bad, we get upset and when people say something good we become happy. This feeling of good or bad is related to sensitivity. -UPR
This is an incident which shows sensitively of a child. Some student was playing on the ground. While playing, one student fell down and he got hurt. Others students started to laugh on him and nobody came to help him then one day from the group helped the boy. He took him to the office. This shows the boys sensitivity similarly teacher’s teachers should be sensitive while dealing in a class. If all students do the homework in the class and one has not done, the teacher should not punish him but try to find the reason for not doing homework. Empathy is necessary to be sensitive without empathy there is no sensitivity.-KDE
Sensitivity towards children
I was surfing my face book account and suddenly one of my friend sent me a link, I opened that link and read a letter which was written by a kid to his teacher. I want to show that letter to all my colleague and sensitive person to know that kid and feel his sensitivity .Personally I feel that  these days kids are going to be more sensitive behind the picture, so my question to all teacher that, are you ready to handle that kind of kids? You should be more sensitive for caring these new generation kids.
I will show you that letter which is important to us who are directly or indirectly connected with kids. To the Teacher of “That Kid”
“Teacher, I need you !
I know I am hard to handle, and I take everything you have. I know I push your buttons in all the right ways that make you second guess what you are doing. But I need you. I need you to keep pushing me. I need you to set limits and help me understand them.
I know you don’t know me. I know if you did, we would get a long a lot better. But, please, teacher, I need you to fight to get to know me. I can’t tell you with my words what I need you to know, so I might act out instead. Take that as my sign that I need you. You might be all I have.
I know you have 30 other kids in class. I know they need you too. But, teacher, I need you. I need you to find my good qualities because those other kids don’t see them. My teacher last year didn’t see them, and most days, if not all, I don’t even see them.
I know I throw fits. I know I disrupt your class and what you had on your agenda for the day. But teacher, I need you to believe in me. I need you to believe that my actions are a cry for help, not an act against you. Please don’t take it personally. I need you to believe that I want to fit in, but just don’t know how.
I know I make it hard, but please, I need you. I need you to see me. I need you to see beyond that behaviour, that meltdown, that action and I need you to see the kid behind all “that”. You might be the only one that can get to the real me. It might take time, It might take patience. You know, it might even take learning about something you know nothing about. But, teacher, I need you! I need you to give it your all to see me.
I know you went into teaching to make a difference. I am here to tell you, I am that difference. I am the one that needs you! I promise, if you reach me, you will change my life.
You will make a difference like no test can measure.
You might not see the difference today or tomorrow, but I promise, if you see that I need you, you will make a difference.
Please! ~ signed “That Kid
So I will request all teacher be kind and be sensitive with all kids to know their view point and to know about their feeling, their thoughts. One day they will make different. Please help them to make their dreams.  Here Sensitivity is the only key to make them success. So think about it now, because it is the time to change with sensitivity.-PGN
While writing this down, I had utter confusion of how to differentiate them. Being very similar and correlated this is how I came up with, with context to sensitivity and empathy.
Sensitivity for me means seeing more details, being easily affected by others behaviour. For example, understanding the LYRICS of the song and not just the music, feeling emotional currents, observing people's reactions, being affected by whatever is going on in the surrounding, and in the society. Being sensitive means reacting to situations and surrounding by facial expressions, body language but not actually feeling the feel of those moments as in empathy. It means we can feel others pain, happiness, anger but we are not adapting them into our own emotion.
Empathy means feeling each and every thing that's going around us, as if we were the one in that situation. It means trying to feel the pain, the problems, the happiness of others by stepping in their shoes. For example, getting depressed by seeing others depressed. Being sad, because the person near us is sad.
Being sensitive has positives and negatives too. When we are able to understand someone's situation, when we know how others are actually feeling, it allows us to deal with them in a better way. The communication becomes easy.
When we are sensitive, we behave more friendly and politely with people because we understand their situation.
Sensitivity helps us in teaching too. Teaching with sensitivity has  positive impact on a child. The child is encouraged as the teacher guides him, motivates him, understands the child's emotional behavior. In a classroom with a sensitive teacher, students learn to see that teacher as a source of support, guidance, and reassurance. Students responds to that teacher well.-PPL
Sensitivity towards children
In recess break, a child was rushing towards his seat with a lunch box in his hand and all his food fell down, scattered on the floor. He became so sad. Tears were flowing from his eyes. His heart was broken. He sat on his seat with a sad face. I as a teacher could feel his pain, I went to him, shared my lunch with him. I told his classmates also to share the lunch. Again a smile was there on his face. As a teacher, we should be sensitive towards our students. We should empathize with them. These are the most vital skills a teacher should possess.-ATK
Sensitivity amongst children
As usual I was teaching in class. And all of a sudden one child hit another with a bottle and the child got hurt and started bleeding he was wounded so badly and was taken to the hospital immediately I was crying a child from my class came to me and told me – “Ma’am why are you crying. Aryan (the child who got hurt) will be fine.” I was surprised by his words .He was able to feel what I was going through He gave me strength that was a lesson for me - even kids are sensitive to our feelings.-KDI
Sensitivity is the quality which helps a person to be helpful to react and respond to others feelings. It helps a child to be more responsive towards their class and schoolmates. In school it is necessary for teachers to be sensitive and listen to them so that the students can freely approach their teacher during the time of difficulty. Students and teachers should show a positive attitude and help each other.-DRO
All living things have sensitivity. Sensitivity related to sense organs in living things. In human beings sensitivity is a stimulation according situations. Sensitivity is feelings for others. If we have sensitivity, we can understand others problems. Sensitivity is responsible for sympathy and empathy.-SSH
In my music classes I found one child was very interested in playing musical instrument and was brilliant in singing. Due to his family circumstances he had to leave his music classes. When I came to know about this I personally called him and assured him that I will not charge tuition fees for him. After that he joined the classes back regularly. Now he is master in playing Casio.-PDI

One afternoon during lunch break suddenly a girl came running telling that a bee had stung her. So she started crying. I told her not to worry it will be alright within no time and took out the stinger with my fingernails. After that I held her finger and took her near the door latch and rubbed her finger on that. Like this in many ways we can be sensitive towards children.
Even parents should continue to respond to toddlers and older children with sensitivity as well. A parent's role is to comfort and empower the child, not to stifle the emotions by becoming angry or punishing the child.
At every stage of a child's life, parents who respond with sensitivity approach behaviour by looking at the needs and wants underlying the behaviour. -KDA

The School Weekly - 23rd May 2016

Mera Bali
Traditional Dress of Bali
Bali Culture is a blend-of predominantly Hindus with sizable minorities of Muslims and Jains. However, regardless of their religious segments, Muslim, Hindu, and Jain Rajasthanis mingle with each other socially. The majority of people that live in Bali is the Jain Community and Seervi Community. Seervi are mainly in agriculture business in Jodhpur and Pali District of Rajasthan. Major population of Seervi’s is followers of Aai Mata which has main temple at Bilara. These days Seervi have migrated from Rajasthan to Southern part of India and have become good business community. Jain Community has left Bali and migrated in all parts of India for their business, but they have their ancestral property in Bali and visit the place during time of vacations or festivals.

Muslims found in Bali are predominantly Sunnis. With the introduction of Islam, many community members converted themselves to Islam, but still maintained many of their earlier traditions. They share lot of socio-ritual elements. Rajasthani Muslim communities, after their conversion, continued to follow pre-conversion practices (Rajasthani rituals and customs) which are not the case in other parts of the country. This exhibits the strong cultural identity of Rajasthani people as opposed to religious identity.
Traditional Food of Bali
Many other communities have migrated to Bali from nearby places to educate their students in good English Schools. All the people of Bali come together as one community during the times of festivals and fairs.Wheat and Maize are the staple food besides Cereals & bajra. The main dish is called Daal-Bhatta. Folk-dances have an important role as a part of worship, ceremonies and a pastime but the main force behind the folk-dances is the celebratory mood. Ghoomar, Gher( Male Dance with sticks) are main dances of the town. Women usually wear ghagra choli with odhni while men wear dhoti and kurta, though most of the people influenced by urban culture have started wearing saree, shirt and trousers.

 Teachers had PDP session that week on Sensitivity. It was a wonderful experience with team mates to discuss and share their experiences, and each one is a master of its own type full with knowledge and experiences of practical life.
The fruit of the PDP Session was as follows:
Group I
Cultural Sensitivity
Cultural Sensitivity is a set of skills that enables you to learn about and get to know people who are different from you, thereby coming to understand how to serve them better within their own communities.
I would like to share an experience on cultural sensitivity- When we shifted to Pali(Marwar) to join our new job in July 2003, here in Marwar region Kartik Poornima is celebrated with by lighting diyas etc, like Diwali, our landlady asked us why we have not lighted the diyas outside the house or with electric light series, I bluntly told her we do not celebrate this festival, she said nothing to us but quietly lighted some diyas on the main gate and parapet of our flat and wished us the festival,offered sweets.
I felt bad about it and thought are we not even able to light diyas in our flat,what that lady was trying to prove to us, I asked my wife to speak to the land lady on this issue.
Her reply taught me a lesson on sensitivity, she said –“ Bhaisabh, koi baat nahi aap log is festival ko nahi manate per ek aap ka ghar hi andhere me rahta to accha nahi lagta aur padosi batein banete aur upshagun bhi mante, isliye maine diye laga diye,aap isko galat na le”.
After that incident we celebrate this festival as it is celebrated in this region and we remember it each year. -AVI
Sensitivity is the ability to understand what other people need and be helpful and kind to them. It means quick to detect or respond to slight changes, signals or influences. It is often considered with regard to a particular kind of stimulus.
One example I want to share with you. When beggars come to the door, my wife gives something to them but I always refuse to do it. I ask myself, Are they really beggars or not? Do they need our help? This kind of difference of opinions between me and my wife is not just because we are two different people; it is precisely because my wife is more sensitive to human suffering than me. This does not imply that I am an inhuman or insensitive but probably it takes a little more for me to feel the human pain. -BJH
Sensitivity at workplace
I was overwhelmed when my teammates pointed out my little gesture of help to them in computers have sensitivity.
Working on computers was nothing surprising for me but those who are not comfortable with computer, to help them was my incident of sensitivity.-KGL
Gender sensitivity
The word sensitivity is the quality to be sensitive towards others. This quality is very necessary in schools. It helps a child to feel safe to learn in an school environment. It helps a person to be aware of what is happening in the surrounding and to react with one another and to come to face to face situation. Sensitivity helps to interact with each other and to come closer to one another. A teacher in a classroom should create such an environment that a boy/ girl may feel free to discuss or relate the way they are feeling about themselves, about one another and their teacher. It helps the children to work together democratically, socially and emotionally. A student will never interact with his class fellows or in school till he/ she is not sensitive towards others. Sensitivity helps a child to be helpful and collaborate responsibly with others. 
I recall an incident that took some years back. I had a girl student in Class VIII. One day while having an activity that girl spoke up suddenly and told that she wanted to suicide. I became sensitive towards her and tried to find out the reason behind it. She told me that she feels bad for her mother who has to listen everyday from her father for giving birth to a girl child. Both parents were in education line but they couldnot understand the feelings of their child. I counseled her and told her to face this situation with intelligence and support of her parents. I called her mother and told everything to her. She supported her daughter and today she is doing her MBA in Udaipur.
Empathy is understanding person’s difficulty in that situation while sensitivity is to render a gesture of help through suggestion, physical help and interacting with them. A teacher needs to be sensitive for it comes through many such situations where it has to help its student out of his/her problem. -BRO
Emotional Sensitivity in work place
Emotional Sensitivity is when a child responds emotionally to various situations at the time of difficulty. I have observed that in school and classrooms we face many such situations when students become emotional. In senior classes and co-ed schools bullying children is a common thing that we see every day. A girl was bullied continuously by a boy for many weeks. The girl was mentally tortured so she stopped coming to school. The teacher came to know about this in her absence. She visited that girl’s house and emotionally found out everything what the cause of her absence was. She even interacted with her parents. With both the help of the teacher and parents the girl was able to come out of her situation and was able to attend school regularly and happily. -KSA
Group II
Sensitivity means awareness and understanding of the feelings of others. We can feel the feelings of others by touch, by hug, by care, by petting the back etc. Best example on sesitivity is Kisi Ne Maa Ke Kandhe Par Sar Rakh Ke Pucha Maa Kab Tak Apne Kandhe Par Sone Degi?? Maa Ne Kaha Jab Tak Log Mujhe Apne Kandhe Par Na Utha Ley...!! -SNI
According to my opinion sensitivity means feeling other’s pain, emotion, care, understanding etc. If I take my example I am also a sensitive person daily I used to bring Swati with me from Falna, sometimes she comes late but I wait for her because I know if I will not bring her she will be too late to reach to school so I understand her helpless situation that is sensitivity whatever I feel for her. -PMA
Sensitivity means understanding what others people need and being helpful and kind to them. A teacher must be sensitive towards students. A teacher must create faith in students so that they can say their problems to him or her. A sensitive teacher can understand the problem easily and he /she will try to solve the problem with this sensitive feeling the relationship between teachers and student can be strong.  -RRE    
Sensitivity means a feeling, understanding or awareness within a person. It can be for oneself or for others. When one can quickly respond to changes or emotional happenings. A person can be sensitive who easily gets hurt or excited or happy with others.
Sensitivity with class- When teachers get sensitive with their class, they look into each matter more deeply. Students take their teachers as more supportive, guiding and feel free or easy to share their problems and when a teacher becomes sensitive, him or her try's best to solve the problem of their students. For e.g. when my class is in trouble or punished by other teachers, I feel really bad. And I try to find measures to cheer them up and vice versa. They ask for reasons why I am upset. This shows the sensitive bond between me and my class. -VRT
Sensitivity- is related to feelings. It is a quality to understand how someone feels and to be careful not to offend them . A sensitive person can understand feelings and situations and then react according to it. Sensitivity comes in you along with your thinking. The way thoughts are created in your mind , sensitivity flows in you .It is important for a teacher to be sensitive, to understand student better. -GMA

Mera Bali
The most fascinating part to visit in Bali is the Bali Fort. The creation of Bali Fort came in the mind of Maharao Ajitsingot. Maharao Ajitsingot was the fourth son of the Maharao Lakhansi (Nadol), he came at the mithdi river in AD 1231 and then he saw a rock and want to create a fort and created a temple of bolmata as a kuldevi of his royal family, after then his Son Vijaysingot also helped in creation, after his death his Son Maharav Balaji completed a fort and on his name this place is called "Bali". He was also fond of Balicha Sakha of Chouhan Vansh. In 1608 AD King Balasingh constructed the Fort of Bali to protect the city and a wall was built around the city edges to protect it from attack. Main attraction of town is the fort. The fort currently houses the prison and most of the other buildings are in ruins. One can have a scenic view of surroundings from the top of the fort. The fort has an ancient temple of Sitala mata. On the occasion of Sitala Mata festival that is celebrated in March, there peasants dance in the fort of Bali. The junction (Chowk) outside the Bali Fort is now named as Freedom Fighter Chotmal Surana Chowk after Late Freedom Fighter Chotmal Surana for his contribution towards India’s Independence Movement. The Inauguration of Chowk was done by then Governor of Gujarat Dr. Kamla Beniwal on 1st March 2011. Dr. Beniwal unveiled the statue of Late Chotmal Surana. A huge public program was said to be conducted which was joined by the entire village and is described as one of the biggest ceremonies held in the village. The event was hosted by Bali Municipal Corporation along with the Family Members of Late Freedom Fighter Chotmal Surana.
Vacations, Vacations, Vacations,
This word so free from tension,
Sleep and enjoy the whole day long,
No waking up early, no shouting from mom,
Playing with friends and cousins is my daily routine.
Eating ice creams, playing video games,
Chatting with friends is what I do.
No school bags, no homework, no tests,
Just enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.
The word ‘Vacation’
Fills happiness in the heart of all.

Science and technology
In everyday life, it is in our use
Not a single man can live without science and its use.
Our day starts with science
Our day ends with science.
In early morning alarm clock help us to wake up
And on turning off the night lamp, the night comes.
Just imagine the life without science
And name that person, now can survive.
Three daughters of science
Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
All are that much interesting which make us every time
Double surprise.
Bhumika Nagar/ XI Sc./ RH
Mother you are so sweet and wonderful
You are the one who brought me in this world
You love and care for me,

You are my guide and support,
Thank you God for the wonderful gift,
That you have given me, asweet Mother.

Mera Bali
Bali is an ancient city. A Jain scroll which Colonel James Todd obtained from a Jain guru in Sanderao gives the earliest description of founding of Bali town. Thirty thousand Jain families abandoned Valabhi and led by their priests found a retreat for them in Marwar, where they erected the towns of Sanderao, Bali and Nadol in 524 AD. It was the heart of the Godwar area in the 11th century. It was also a town where regular horse fair was held to trade the horses. Till today horse races are organized on the occasion of Ganguar Mela. King Sarubali Baldev won the land of Bali in a battle in 1240 AD and he crowned the area his royal capital, naming it Bali after himself. Legends say that the Pandava children used to play childhood games in this area and a water well still exists which was formed by Bhima, one of the Pandavas.
In 1608 AD King Balasingh constructed the Fort of Bali to protect the city and a wall was built around the city edges to protect it from attack. The town planning is based on ancient geometrical, astrological and architectural laws. The marriage of Rana Udai Singh, father of legendary hero Maharana Pratap, was solemnized with the daughter of the Rao of Jalore at Bali. A dispensary was established in this town in March 1896. In 1897, it served 17 in-patients and 4166 out-patients and 318 operations were performed in it. In 1900 there was a plague outbreak in town and the town was evacuated. 1245 deaths occurred during the month of January 1900 as a result of diarrhea, dysentery and pneumonia. 
Prior to formation of Rajasthan it was headquarters of a district with same name in erstwhile Jodhpur state. Bali had its own municipality even before independence. It had a middle school in 1932 that was upgraded to high school and in 1946 had more than 200 pupils. In 1960 Bali had three primary schools for boys, one primary school for girls and a high school. The telephone arrived in Bali in 1957, it got electricity in 1961 and piped water connections were given in 1970. A tehsil library was established in the center of Bali in Bawari Jav in 1958. In addition Bali also has a Jain library. In 1992 the first CBSE School The Fabindia School was established
Monday, 2nd May: Students of Class VIII & IX painted the outside wall of Visitor’s Room with the help of their Art & Craft Teacher Mr. Partha Guin & Mr. Rakesh Kumar. Very big thanks to the both students and teachers for their splendid work.
International Labour’s Day: Every year International Labour’s Day is celebrated on 1st May. Labourers are the future of the world. They work hard for us. It is sad to say that nowadays labourers condition has become terrible. Due to new technology labourers work has become so less because 10 labourer work is done with the help of one machine only. Their work goes waste for it is not given any importance. They have become poor. They have no money to fill their families stomach. Due to the lack of food many labourers are dying. So Labour Day was celebrated first in US. to remember the achievements of workers. Nowadays it is celebrated all over the globe as International Worker’s Day. -Kreena Rao / VIII / DH
Smile is an expression 
It removes the tension.
Smile is the cheap thing
It relaxes a human being .
If we smile we look nice.
If we are sad we look very bad.
Smile, smile, smile but only on right time.

मेरा प्रिय पक्षी
मेरा प्रिय पक्षी मोर है। वह हमारा राष्ट्रीय पक्षी है। उसका प्रिय भोजन अनाज है। वह कीड़े -मकौड़े भी खाता है। मोर बारिश में नाचता है। मोर के पंख रंग -बिरंगे होते है। अगर कोई मोर को पकड़े तो उसे जेल की सजा हो सकती है। मोर कभी घोंसले नहीं बनाते। मोर के पंखा बहुत सुन्दर होते है।

A school is a temple
Of knowledge and love
Students are learners
And teachers are givers
In the heart of Bali
There is a school
Standing apart from others
The Fabindia School
Everyone is equal
Everyone has freedom
To play and learn
No discrimination is done
Learning and playing
Are the two fundamental rights
Also disciplining the students
Is the aim of the school
Teachers are well qualified
Students are smart above all
Principal is amazing
The Fabindians today
Will be a citizen of tomorrow
To bring success to the country
And make the school very proud.

Importance of Science in Everyday Life
Science is creating wonders almost every day. It is extremely important in our daily life. It is the science that makes our life easier. It has given us many machines that have made our life simple. Buses, cars, sewing machines, mixer grinder etc. are the machines given by science to us for our daily uses. Science has given us medicines. Millions of people have died due to lack of medical care. But now many diseases can be cured by medicines. Science has given us machines like tractor and many other tools for easy cultivation. Many entertainment devices like television, mobile phones, computer, etc are given by science. We need science in all aspects. Without science, life is impossible.-Anumesh Rao / VIII / GH
Global Warming
Global warming is the increase in earth's temperature due to greenhouse gases mostly carbon dioxide and per fluorocarbons that are released by fossil burning and deforestation. This excess carbon dioxide retains heat and causes increase in earth's temperature.
Per fluorocarbons gases also cause damage to ozone layer of earth which is protective for us by absorbing ultra violet rays of sun but damage causes these ultraviolet rays to reach direct to earth which also causes increase in temperature of earth.
These effects causes increase in earth's temperature year by year which is harmful for humans, plants and animals so global warming is not good for us.-
