Mera Bali
Hawa Mahal means "Palace of Winds" or "Palace of the breeze". This palace is in Jaipur, so named because it was essentially a high screen wall built so the women of the royal household could observe street festivals while unseen from outside. Constructed of red and pink sandstone, the palace sits on the edge of the City Palace, and extends to the zenana, or women's chambers. The structure was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh. He was so intimidated and inspired by unique structure of Khetri Mahal and he built the grand and historical Hawa Mahal. It was designed by Lal Chand Ustad in the form of the crown of Krishna, the Hindu god. Its unique five-storey exterior is akin to the honeycomb of a beehive with its 953 small windows called jharokhas decorated with intricate latticework. The original intention of the lattice was to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life in the street below without being seen, since they had to obey strict "purdah" (face cover). The lattice also allows cool air from the Venturi effect (doctor breeze) through the intricate pattern, air conditioning the whole area during the high temperatures in summers. 
The palace is a five-storey pyramidal shaped monument that rises 50 feet from its high base. The top three floors of the structure have a dimension of one room width while the first and second floors have patios in front of them. The front elevation, as seen from the street, is like a honeycomb web of a beehive, built with small portholes. Each porthole has miniature windows and carved sandstone grills, finials and domes. It gives the appearance of a mass of semi-octagonal bays, giving the monument its unique façade. The inner face on the back side of the building consists of need-based chambers built with pillars and corridors with minimal ornamentation, and reach up to the top floor. The interior of the Mahal has been described as "having rooms of different coloured marbles, relieved by inlaid panels or gilding; while fountains adorn the centre of the courtyard". Its cultural and architectural heritage is a true reflection of a fusion of Hindu Rajput architecture and the Islamic Mughal architecture; the Rajput style is seen in the form of domed canopies, fluted pillars, lotus and floral patterns, and the Islamic style as evident in its stone inlay filigree work and arches (as distinguished from its similarity with the Panch Mahal - the palace of winds - at Fatehpur Sikri) 
Hawa Mahal was also known as the chef-d'œuvre of Maharaja Jai Singh as it was his favourite resort because of the elegance and built-in interior of the Mahal. The cooling effect in the chambers, provided by the breeze passing through the small windows of the façade, was enhanced by the fountains provided at the centre of each of the chambers.
ALUMNI
Bharti Ma’am called me and I remembered my old days in The Fabindia School I am Rahul Sharma (Batch 2006). I passed Secondary education in 2006 with 70.5%. I got highest marks in Mathematics although it was not such high score but it was highest among all the students who helped me too choose the subject in Senior Secondary. In 2008 I passed Class XII with 65.8% and i got highest marks in both Physics and Chemistry. In 2008 I was enrolled in B.Tech course by passing RPET exam and I did my engineering in electronics and communication engineering with aggregate 74%. In 2012 and I was awarded special degree that is called Honors. I was one time year topper in my branch for that I got gold medal and 2 time semester topper in my section. Currently i am working in Central University of Rajasthan which ranks 34th in India (NIRF Ranked) on the post of Technical Assistant in Physics department. I took admission in The Fabindia School in 2000, I found new environment, and from there onward I started enriching my knowledge. In previous School even I didn’t know at that time what to achieve in my life. With the efforts of Fabindian Teachers I fixed my target. There is one special thing in Fabindia that is to make a student self independent. Fabindian Teachers are really very good and by their efforts I am able to achieve my target. In Previous School there was lots of discrimination among rich students and poor Students but in Fabindia equal opportunity is given to each student.. From morning schedule to off time School was excellent. I miss all the moment that I had passed there. I would like to give special thanks to Mr. Jayant Biswas who really helped me a lot.-Rahul Sharma( Batch 2006)

Birthday Magic
Have them take the month number from their birthday: Jan 1, Feb 2, March 3…..
Multiply by 5
Then add 6
Then multiply that total by 4
Then add 9
Then multiply this total by 5 once again
Finally have them to add the day they were born on.
Then they should give you the total. Then in your mind subtract 165, & you will have the month and the day they were born on. -Anumesh Rao/ VIII/ GH
