Wishing all our readers a ‘Happy Children’s Day’!
Mera Bali
Old Rangji  Temple
Pushkar is a town in the Ajmer district in Rajasthan. It is situated 14 km northwest of Ajmer at an average elevation of 510 m (1,670 ft) and is one of the five sacred dhams (pilgrimage site) for devout Hindus. According to Hindu theology, the pond at the Katas Raj temple near Choa Saidan Shah in Chakwal District of Pakistan has a theological association with Shiva; it was formed by the tears of Lord Shiva which he is believed to have shed after the death of his wife, Sati. The story goes that when Sati died, Shiva cried so much and for so long, that his tears created two holy ponds – one at Pushkara in Ajmer in India and the other at Ketaksha, which literally means raining eyes, in Sanskrit. It is from this name that the word Katas is derived. It is often called "Tirth Raj" – the king of pilgrimage sites – and has in recent years become a popular destination for foreign tourists.
Pushkar has many temples. Most of the temples are not very old because many temples were destroyed during Muslim conquests in the area.  Subsequently, the destroyed temples were rebuilt. The most famous among all is the Brahma Temple built during the 14th century CE. The Pushkar Lake has 52 ghats where pilgrims descend to the lake to bathe in the sacred waters. Pushkar is also famous for its annual fair (Pushkar Camel Fair) held in  the month of November.

Parent’s Speech
The school has called me here to observe and share my views about the activities and academics of the School, I am very glad to be here. I have a very long connection or relationship with the school as all my 3 children have studied here and are studying from Class Prep to Class XII. The discipline of the school is very good, education, the language and command of students over English is really impressing. I have visited many other schools but no other school is as good as Fabindia. This is the best school in this area and I think every parent should send their child to this school where they can have overall development. I have not seen any school so well developed in the nearby areas of Bali, Falna or the entire Gorwar belt, so I suggest or request you all students to utilize your time effectively, learn as much as you can from this institution. All my good wishes with the school and students. Thank You.

होती हैं माँ प्यार क़ी  मूरत ,
होती  हैं  देवी  क़ी  सूरत।
करती हैं हम पर उपकार, ,
हमको भी हैं माँ से प्यार।
होती हैं माँ प्यार का सागर ,
भरती  है  माँ सबकी  गागर।
चलते फिरते करती प्यार ,
हमको भी हैं माँ से प्यार।
होती हैं माँ सबसे प्यारी ,
होती हैं माँ सबकी दुल्हारी।
रखती हैं माँ सबका ध्यान,
हमको भी हैं माँ से प्यार।

Children Day
Children day is a day to enjoy ,
it is a day of love and joy.
All children play and dance,
And the scene likes to be of somewhat France.
All schools have a celebration,
Only having their concentration
On Nehru's birthday.
The lover of children,
The pride of India.
So let’s have this children day
Full of happiness.

India’s first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, was born on 14th November. Apart from being known for his skills as a statesman, Nehru was also immensely fond of children.
He thought children are the future of a Nation and they need utmost care. They win over our hearts with their angelic eyes and innocent smiles. Nehru wished his birthday to be celebrated as Children’s Day. Since his death in 1963, his birthday is being celebrated as Children's Day in India. So the Children’s Day is dedicated to the Children of India. Children are loved by one and all. Children’s Day is not just a day to let the future generation have its say. It is a day to remember a leader who, in his quiet but determined way, laid the foundation to convert a nascent nation into a world power. The more popular and famous of Nehru's pictures show him with children. He is always called as Chacha Nehru (Nehru Uncle).
