Mera Bali
The Sambhar Salt LakeIndia's largest inland salt lake, a bowl shape lake encircles historical Sambhar Lake Town located 96 km south west of the city of Jaipur  The lake receives water from an endothecia basin with 5700 square km catchment area. It is not part of the Ganga river basin area and is geographically a separate land locked river basin. The lake is actually an extensive saline wetland, with water depths fluctuating from as few as 60 centimeters (24 in) during the dry season to about 3 meters (10 ft) after the monsoon season. It occupies an area of 190 to 230 square km, based on the season. It is an elliptically shaped lake 35.5 km long with a breadth varying between 3 km and 11 km. It is located in Nagaur and Jaipur districts and it also borders the Ajmer district. The circumference of the lake is 96 km, surrounded on all sides by the Aravali hills.
The Sambhar lake basin is divided by a 5.1 km long dam made of sandstone. After salt water reaches a certain concentration, it will be released from the west side to the eastern side by lifting dam gates. To the east of the dam are salt evaporation ponds where salt has been farmed for a thousand years. This eastern area is 80 km². and comprises salt reservoirs, canals and salt pans separated by narrow ridges. To the east of the dam is a railroad, built by the British to provide access from Sambhar Lake City to the salt works The water is fed to the lake from streams from the rivers Mendha, Runpangarh, Khandel and Karian. The Mendha and Rupangarh are main streams. The Mendha flows from south to north and the Rupangarh flows from north to south.
It is India's largest saline lake and is the source of most of Rajasthan's salt production. It produces 196,000 tonnes of clean salt every year, which equates to around 9% of India's salt production. Sambhar has been designated as a Ramsar site (recognized wetland of international importance) because the wetland is a key wintering area for tens of thousands of flamingos and other birds that migrate from northern Asia. The specialized algae and bacteria growing in the lake provide striking water colours and support the lake ecology that, in turn, sustains the migrating waterfowl. There is other wildlife in the nearby forests, where Nilgai move freely along with deer and foxes.

We pray Almighty to grant peace to the departed soul; May God bestow strength to the bereaved family to bear this irreparable loss.
Weather in Bali is becoming increasingly hot. The sun is shining bright all throughout the daytime. It has become difficult to go out during the afternoons. Students prefer to play indoor games due to the hot weather. Highest was recorded at 41°C and lowest at 24°C. Humidity dropped down to 9% and the wind blew at 10km/hr.
Importance of Morning Assembly
According to my opinion Morning Assembly is important because Morning Assembly keeps us fresh whole day as we can easily concentrate on our studies. I think that Morning Assembly is necessary for all the students because in this way they can worship God and thank God for whatever God has given to them. We can also learn prayers that we say every day. If there is no Morning Assembly we won't understand the importance of God. Due to Morning Assembly we are aware of the events that are going to be organized or that have taken place in our school. In this way the announcements can be heard by all the students at the same time. Teachers don't have to repeat the announcement in the classes again. Morning Assembly is also very helpful for them also. From my point of view each and every school should have Morning Assembly -Kreena Rao/ IX/ DH.
Plant is our life
Because it gives light and shine.
Plants are the happiness 
Which removes the sadness.
Plant is greenery
Which gives you beautiful scenery.
Plants want one thing 
That we take care of them.
Plants are strong 
That's why we have got a lot
Plants play a important role in our life.
