How to Deal With the Odd Ones

First I'll tell you what odd ones mean. I mean that odd ones are the ones who are kind hearted, emotionally weak, have less number of friends, slow in sharing their thoughts with others, to talk less etc. While dealing with them we have to be very careful, even when we talk we have to be very careful so that we don't hurt their emotions. We have to pay extra attention towards them. Though they are slow learners but they are very good with some or the other thing.  We should teach them in such a way that they get interested in the topic we teach. We should teach them in the way they understand, use creative skills with them. We should behave in a friendly nature with them. We should take care of them. We should love them. Do not insult them in front of the class that you are a slow learner or you don't know anything what you will do in future, you are zero etc. Instead we should motivate them in every way. -Ishu Chouhan/ Educator

The Festival of lights
The festival of lightsThe day of Diwali
That sweet smell of flowers
And the sky of colours
Glow the light,
Enjoy the beautiful delight,
Crackers burns with a great magic
Distributing the happiness of colours in the rangoli
Happiness comes, bad things burns,
Spreads the joy, takes away the sorrow
With the colours of rangoli,
And the mantras of Goddess Laxmi
Let Diwali fill lights in your lives.
Forgiving enemies for their mistakes,
Gain the blessings from elders
-Uma Choudhary/ IX/TH
Our favourite festival is Diwali
We celebrate it happily
It is the festival of lights
On that day we see a beautiful sight
We burn crackers with joy
Small children play with toys
Our elders bring sweets to eat
I and my brother enjoy this treat
We wear new dress
Nobody is in stress
We worship Goddess Laxmi
We meet others with glee

Celebrate Safe and Pollution Free Diwali
Diwali is a festival that signifies the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil, and hope over despair. However, in the recent years, extravagant celebrations have not only put a great strain on the environment, but have also put people’s health at stake. While these celebrations may seem fun, their far-reaching consequences are not. Air pollution levels rise to dangerous levels, energy and food wastage increases exponentially, plastic packaging and cracker debris litters the roads and severe. As firecrackers leave the city hazy, noisy and littered with waste the next morning, the best way to celebrate Diwali is to go firecracker-free. Sure, for many of us Diwali is synonymous with bursting crackers and it’s kind of hard to give up on the fun, but there are enough reasons why we shouldn’t be hanging on to crackers. The pollutants associated with firecrackers make it difficult to breathe and are linked to many respiratory problems as well. The loud noises and blinding flashes also give severe anxiety attacks to animals and birds. Substitute candles and electric diyas with the good old oil diyas that are bio-degradable, cost effective, traditional and very beautiful. Wheat dough, orange peels, coconut shells and seashells are some great options for DIY diyas. Plus, you will also be contributing in reducing the electricity consumption that normally reaches sky high levels during Diwali. If you would rather have electric lighting anyway, opt for LED lights. -Anumesh Rao/ IX/GH
