The School Weekly - 28th November 2016

Mera Bali
Amer Fort is located in Amer, 11 kilometres from Jaipur. Located high on a hill, it is the principal tourist attraction in the Jaipur area. The town of Amer was originally built by Meenas and later it was ruled by Raja Man Singh I (December 21, 1550 – July 6, 1614). Amer Fort is known for its artistic Hindu style elements. With its large ramparts and series of gates and cobbled paths, the fort overlooks Maota Lake. It is the main source of water for the Amer palace.
Constructed of red sandstone and marble, the attractive, opulent palace is laid out on four levels, each with a courtyard. It consists of the Diwan-i-Aam, or "Hall of Public Audience", the Diwan-i-Khas, or "Hall of Private Audience", the Sheesh Mahal (mirror palace), or Jai Mandir, and the Sukh Niwas where a cool climate is artificially created by winds that blow over a water cascade within the palace. Hence, the Amer Fort is also popularly known as the Amer Palace. The palace was the residence of the Rajput Maharajas and their families. At the entrance to the palace near the fort's Ganesh Gate, there is a temple dedicated to Sila Devi, a goddess of the Chaitanya cult, which was given to Raja Man Singh when he defeated the Raja of Jessore, Bengal in 1604.  
This palace, along with Jaigarh Fort, is located immediately above on the Cheel ka Teela (Hill of Eagles) of the same Aravallirange of hills. The palace and Jaigarh Fort are considered one complex, as the two are connected by a subterranean passage. This passage was meant as an escape route in times of war to enable the royal family members and others in the Amer Fort to shift to the more redoubtable Jaigarh Fort.

Report of Exchange Program by MGD Girls
We a group of nine girls visited The Fab India School,Bali in Pali District for an exchange programme from 14th-20th November 2016. The school staff welcomed us very warmly and whole heartedly. Soon we left with our host teachers to their houses. By living with our host teachers we learnt about different work styles, cultures, customs and living habits. We learnt how to take proper care of flowers, how to make garlands, we learnt to cook traditional Rajasthani dishes like dal dhokli and how to eat them traditionally as well. We observed that most houses had a small space left on the roofs since they believed that some rituals will be performed when the daughter of the house gets married. We also noticed that the women, even now, cover their forehead and they were very particular about personal hygiene. The people were caring, hardworking and loving. The school campus provided the students with great facilities like courts and coaches. The atmosphere was positive and green. The school's discipline was a model to behold. There were certain differences we found like their exhibitions were set up subject wise, their school had blocks and not buildings. They had co-education and ours is an all girls school. Other than all this we were impressed by the dedication of students towards their education. We thank the school authorities for organizing a visit to the famous places of Pali like Ranakpur Temple, Jawai Bandh, Shivganj Market and the Golden Temple of Falna .Our visit has taught us the value of the facilities we were provided with. For sure we loved the school, teachers, host teachers and students and would love to pay another visit if we get a chance.

इस हिन्दी सप्ताह को प्रारंभ करने से पहले हमारे हिन्दी अध्यापक कृष्णगोपाल सर इस विषय के बारे मे बताते है कि हिंदी फ़ारसी भाषा का शब्द है। ईरानी लोग स को ह बोलते थे। इसी कारण सिंध प्रान्त में रहने वाले लोगों की भाषा सिंधी यानी हिंदी कही गयी। आर्य भाषाओं में प्राचीनतम भाषा वैदिक संस्कृत मानी जाती है। कई लेखक तथा कवियों ने इसमें काव्य सृजन किया। वैदिक संस्कृत के साथ-साथ बोल-चाल की भाषा को लौकिक संस्कृत नाम दिया गया। यही लौकिक संस्कृत आगे चलकर पालि के रूप में परिवर्तित होती गयी भगवान बुद्ध के उपदेश पालि भाषा में मिलते हैं। इसके पश्चात प्राकृत भाषा का प्रादुर्भाव हुआ पहली से 500 ई.पु. तक प्राकृत लोकभाषा रही। प्राकृत से अपभ्रंश भाषाएँ विकसित हुई। अपभ्रंश की अंतिम अवस्था अवहट्ठ थी इसी से हिंदी भाषा का जन्म हुआ। अवहट्ठ को पुरानी हिंदी कहा जाता है। 13वीं शताब्दी के आस-पास हिंदी में साहित्य रचना होने लगी। यह सप्ताह विद्यालय में हिन्दी साहित्य सप्ताह के रूप में मनाया जाएगा | जिसमें कई गतिविधियाँ आयोजित की जाएगी|
