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

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.
