STARS THIS WEEK

STUDENT: Harshvardhan Singh/IV, Student this Week shared his views on sincerity towards work. He said sincerity is dedication towards work and our focus towards work. Sincerity can very easily be called the foundation of every great thing that has ever happened to mankind. Sincerity is a mix of seriousness and honesty. If you do things with sincerity, people will trust you.

EDUCATOR: Miss.Shivani Rao was the Educator this Week. She shared her views on the importance of setting goals. She shared that the  only person who is capable of setting limits to your growth is 'YOU'. You are the only person who can revolutionize your life. You are the only person who can influence your happiness, your realization and your success. You are the only person who can help yourself. 
Your life does not change when your boss changes, when your friends change, when your partner changes, when your company changes. Your life changes when YOU change, when you go beyond your limiting beliefs, when you realize that you are the only one responsible for your life. The most important relationship you can have is the one you have with yourself. The key is to be true to yourself, to be true to the very best that is in you, and to live your life consistent with your highest values and aspirations. This is the only way to truly learn how to believe in yourself.

Ms. Kusum Sharma presented a speech, Ms. Punita Chouhan recited a poem dedicated to the soldiers. Mr. Kishore Kumar sang a beautiful patriotic song.

Mr. Krishan Gopal told the students that it is not necessary to join the army to show your patriotism for the country and narrated a story: 71वे गणतंत्र दिवस की हार्दिक शुभकामनाएँ। ऐसा नहीं है कि हम बंदूक हाथ में लेकर ही देशसेवा कर सकते हैं। देशभक्ति का जज्बा होना जरूरी है। एक कहानी पढ़ी थी जो मेरे जेहन में आ रही है कि एक कस्बे के चौराहे पर सुभाष चंद्र बोस की मूर्ति स्थापित की गई। मूर्ति दिखने में सुंदर थी लेकिन नेताजी के चश्मा नहीं लगा हुआ था, हो सकता है टूट गया हो या मूर्तिकार बनाना भूल गया हो। कारण कुछ भी रहा हो पर ये बिना चश्मे वाली मूर्ति एक व्यक्ति को आहत करती थी। यह विकलांग व्यक्ति फेरी लगाकर चश्मे बेचता था। अपनी चलती-फिरती दुकान में से एक चश्मा नेताजी को पहना देता। जब कोई ग्राहक वैसे ही चश्मे की फरमाइश करता तो वह नेताजी से क्षमा याचना करके   चश्मा ग्राहक को दे देता और मूर्ति पर दूसरा चश्मा लगा देता। इस प्रकार हर रोज़ नेताजी की मूर्ति पर अलग-अलग चश्मे होते कभी धूप का तो कभी गोल कभी चौकोर। लोगों के मन में भी कौतुहल होता कि आज कौनसा चश्मा लगा होगा। कुछ ऐसे लोग भी थे जो इस बात का मजाक उड़ाते। कुछ समय बाद वह व्यक्ति चल बसा। अब नेताजी की मूर्ति पर कोई चश्मा नहीं लगेगा। परंतु कुछ बच्चों ने मूर्ति पर घास के तिनकों का बना चश्मा लगा दिया। ये काम बताता है कि बच्चों में देश-भक्ति की भावना है और बिना बंदूक उठाए हम देश-भक्ति दिखा सकते हैं। हालांकि हमारे सैनिकों की बात अलग ही है सर्दी-गर्मी में भी विचलित नहीं होते। ऐसे ही एक सैनिक के विचार कुमार विश्वास की कविता में है-- 
दौलत न अदा करना मौला
शोहरत न अदा करना मौला


बस एक अदा करना चाहे 

जन्नत न अदा करना मौला

शम्मा ए वतन की लौ पर जब

कुर्बान पतंगा हो

होठों पर गंगा हो

हाथों में तिरंगा हो।

धन्यवाद

Begum Hazrat Mahal was a vital part of the 1857 Indian Rebellion. After her husband was exiled, she took charge of Awadh and even seized control of Lucknow during the rebellion
Bhikaji Cama was not only a part of the Indian Independence Movement, she was also a

We all want to live a healthy, disease free and happy life but most of us are suffering from some or the other disease due to pollution, having unhealthy food and  global warming etc. We, knowingly or knowingly are damaging nature, but we must understand that we belong to nature, nature doesn't belong to us. All the creatures are dependent on nature. We can save nature and have a healthy life by planting trees, saving forests,   organic farming, cleanliness, avoiding plastic etc.
We should make people aware about these things for our better future. We should motivate our youth to lead to bring change in the world as they are full of life and energy and first we should start with ourselves.
