The School Weekly - 30th January 2017

Republic Day Special
Mera Bali

Shekhawati is located in North Rajasthan comprising districts like Jhunjhunu, Sikar, Churu, and parts of Nagaur and Jaipur. History has it that in the 17th to 19th centuries, Marwari merchants constructed these grand havelis in the Shekhawati region. Steeped in wealth and affluence, these merchants got busy outdoing others in building more grand edifices - homes, temples, step wells which were richly decorated both inside and outside with painted murals. It is bounded on the northwest by the Jangladesh region, on the northeast by Haryana, on the east by Mewat, on the southeast by Dhundhar, on the south by Ajmer, and on the southwest by the Marwar region. Its area is 13784 square kilometers. The inhabitants of Shekhawati are considered brave, sacrificing and hard working people.
Shekhawati was first mentioned in the book Bankidas ki Khyat. Contemporary of Bankidas was Colonel W.S.Gardener, who used the word Shekhawati in the year 1803. Later Colonel James Tod wrote the first history of Shekhawati. The term Shekhawati was used frequently in Vamsh Bhaskar. This suggests that the term Shekhawati came in use about two and half centuries ago. Shekhawati is named after Rao Shekha Shekhawati is in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan, and has special importance in the history of India.
Shekhawati is a dialect of the Rajasthani language and is spoken by about three million speakers in the Churu, Jhunjhunu, and Sikar districts of Rajasthan. Even though it is a very important dialect from the grammatical and literary points of view, very little work is carried out on it. In 2001 a descriptive compendium of the grammar of Shekhawati was published. Shekhawati, like the Bagri dialect of Ganganagar and Hanumangarh districts, has a parallel lexicon which makes it very rich from the lexicographical point of view. Word order is typically SOV and there is an existence of implosives. The presence of high tone at suprasegmental level classifies it with other dialects of Rajasthani. It has contributed a lot to the development of Rajasthani language and linguistics.
Many historians have considered this region included in the Matsya Kingdom. Rigveda also provides certain evidences in this matter. Manusmriti has called this land as 'Brahmrishi Desha'.Shekhawati region was included in 'marukantar desha' up to Ramayana period. Out of 16 mahajanapadas prior to Buddha, only two janapadas, namely Avanti and the Kingdom of Virata were counted in Rajasthan area. This region was also influenced by Avanti but later on Nandas of Magadha defeated Avanti. Historians believe that Mauryas obtained the Rajasthan from Nandas.
Dhruv Rajpurohit / Batch 2003 visited the School on the occasion of Republic Day. He was invited to speak a few words of motivation to the students.
Keynote Speaker Mr. Dhruv Singh Rajpurohit’s Speech
I am Dhruv Rajpurohit.
Dear Madam Principal, all the teachers, staff members and fellow students, thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak in front of you all today. I promise I'll keep it short and simple and hopefully won’t bore you too much. First, let me congratulate all of you gathered here today, a very pleasant and Happy Republic Day. As I stand here today, I remember the time when I was a student at The Fabindia School from 1996-2003. I left in 2003 to further study abroad in the USA.
I was fortunate to be a part of The Fabindia School because this school instilled in me all the qualities and challenges of life to be successful in the future. I want to thank all of my teachers for helping me get to where I am today. All of you students, I will tell you today that use this opportunity and education to better yourself and go further in life than you would love over imagined. In this atmosphere I received all guidance necessary to tackle whatever obstacle that may arise in the future but you must take the initiative yourself by giving your best effort and using your time wisely.
Become a good student, be a good listener, be a respectful classmate, be curious and most important always be willing to work hard for what you want. When I was a student of your age my dream was to become a doctor. I made sure that I did everything I could to make it come true; it was never easy and it will never be easy if you have a similar dream. There were times when I thought I wasn't good enough, or that I will never get into medical school, or never pass a test. One thing kept me going and then t was motivated. I was motivated to be successful, and would never accept failure as a result.
I knew in my heart that if I worked hard, studied more, slept less, that one day I will make my dream come true that I had when I was a child. The point is that once you realize your dream and work hard for it, it will come true. Don't think you're not good enough or you can't do it or let other people discourage you. Work hard even if you have to sacrifice a lot of things because those who never give up never lose. I have no doubt that you all can accomplish your dreams if you give your best effort, work hard and remain motivated.
I would like to end this speech with my favourite quote by Abdul Kalam;
"Sapne wo nahi jo neend mein aaye, sapne wo hain jinhe pure kiye bina neend nahi aaye"

गणतंत्र दिवस की रोचक घटनाए
गणतंत्र दिवस पर कुछ ऐसी रोचक घटनाएं हुई जो हमेशा के लिए इतिहास के
पन्नों में दर्ज हो गई।
1. 26 जनवरी, 1950 को पहला गणतंत्र दिवस राजपथ पर नहीं,
बल्कि नेशनल स्टेडियम मैं मनाया गया था।
2. पहली बार सेना बंद ने महात्मा गाँधी के पसंदीदा गीत 'आबाइड  विथ में ' की धुन बजायी थी और तब से हमेशा यही धुन बजायी जाती हैं।
3. पहला गणतंत्र समारोह सुबह बजाये दोपहर बाद मनाया गया।
4. राजपथ पर सुबह चार बजे से' ही  लोगो का आना शुरू हो जाता था।
5. पाकिस्तान के साथ वर्ष 1971 में हुए यद्ध के साथ अगले वर्ष गणतंत्र दिवस समारोह राजपथ के बजाये  विजय चौक किया गया।
6. वर्ष 1960 मैं दिल्ली में 20 लाख लोगो ने  गणतंत्र समारोह देखा। जिनमे से 5 लाख लोग तो राजपथ पर ही जमा थे।
7. राजस्थान गाड़िया लोहारों  ने पहली बार वर्ष 1955 में भाग लिया।
8. 1962 में परेड की लंबाई 6 मिल थी,
यानी जब परेड की की पहली टुकड़ी लाल किला पहुचती तो आखिरी टुकड़ी इंडिया गेट पर होती।
निराला देश  भारत 
जहाँ जलते हैं एकता के दीप ,
जहाँ लोग रहते हैं हमेशा एक दुसरे  समीप ,
वह भारत देश हैं निराला।।
जहाँ कोई हिन्दू कोई मुस्लिम ,
कोई सिक्ख कोई ईसाई ,
हैं तो  सिर्फ भारतीय ,
वह भारत देश हैं निराला।।
जहाँ हैं दिवाली और होली ,
हैं ईद और लोढ़ी ,
वह भारत देश  हैं निराला।।
जहाँ औरतें भी मर्दो के साथ कंधे से कन्धा
मिलकर करती हैं काम ,
जहाँ प्यार का नहीं हैं कोई दाम ,
वह भारत देश हैं निराला।।
जहाँ एक चायवाला उठाता हैं पुरे देश का बोझ ,
जहाँ मर -मर के भी लोग जी लेते हैं हर रोज़ ,
वह भारत देश हैं निराला।।
जय हिन्द

India Our Motherland
I am your Motherland
I was under the rule of Britishers.
My children came forward
And fought for me.
Many went to jail, many sacrificed their lives,
Many shed their blood, just to save my life.
They made me independent on 15th August 1947 and
Celebrate it as “INDEPENDENCE DAY”.
The constitution was set up on 26 January 1950
which you celebrate as “REPUBLIC DAY”.
