Positive Attitude Develops Positive Thinking
I would like to share my views on “Positive Attitude Develops Positive Thinking”
All the stories of great failures had their ability to bounce back in terms of time to become successful.
You don’t lead your life; your patterns are leading your life.
You don’t take your decisions; your patterns are influencing your decision.
From where do you get motivation, what is the real source of motivation, how a human being should remain always motivated. 
If money was the motivation then organization which is giving the highest salary should have zero employee turnover but even their people are living, money is not the highest motivation.
If success is your motivation, whenever success will come in your life you will remain motivated but when you will not get success from where you will get motivated.
Motivation should not be outside in. It should be inside out.
The real source of motivation is ‘Belief System’. Your belief system is the right way to stay motivated
Arunima Sinha was pushed out from a running train by some robbers in 2011; as a result, her legs had to be amputated below the knee. Rods were put in her legs and there were multiple fractures in the spinal cord. She felt that she had become disabled for her whole life. While sitting in the hospital she said if God has saved me then definitely to create history. Now her aim was to climb each of the continents highest peaks and hoist the National Flag of India. She contacted Bachendri Pal, the first Indian women to climb Mount Everest and signed up for training under her, and you know not only Mount Everest, one by one she climbed all the seven peaks of the world. She was awarded the Padma Shri Award. This was only possible because of her belief in herself.
This mind is very powerful.
It can break you, it can make you.
You can become strongly mental or you can become mentally strong.
You can have a hopeless end or you can have an endless hope.
So, be positive and the result will be always positive.

Importance Of Character Formation In Childhood
Character is not just we show before others. It is the sum of many qualities, feelings, moral values etc. Character formation is an integral part of education. Parents always wish their children to achieve knowledge and to reach high positions. Most of the parents are not bothered about the inculcation of good behaviour and moral values. School being the second home of children has an important role in this regard. In view of this, teachers are always ready to help children in all aspects. At the same time children are also having certain duties and rules to be followed. They should obey their parents, teachers and elders, practice good manners and respect for each other.
Wordsworth said, “The child is the father of the man”. Our childhood experiences are the basis of our character. It is the character that formed in the childhood that decides our behaviour as an adult. Whatever things we learn in our childhood only we follow and that only reflect in us. If children lead a disciplined life, they will be disciplined gentlemen when they grow up.
Learn to select good practices and follow them for becoming good citizens of our country.

Importance of Moral Values
I would like to share my views on the 'Importance of Moral Values' through the story ”The Dedication of Eklavya”
Eklavya was a young boy living with his tribe deep inside the forest. His aim in life was to become the finest archer in the world. He wanted to become a student of Guru Dhronacharya. When he asked about it, he was refused due to the low status of his birth. Despite this Eklavya created statue of Guru Dhronacharya and practiced archery everyday in front of it . Soon he became a good archer.
One day when Guru Dhronacharya learnt about this that a tribal boy is better than his best student Arjuna
So he called Eklavya to donate his right thumb as guru dakshina . without any hesitation Eklavya cut off his right thumb and gave his guru dakshina to his guru.After that day he was unable to become the best archer in the world but even today he is praised as a devoted student
So moral of this story is always love and respect your teachers and elders

Work from Home: New Learning
Due to the pandemic, spread of COVID- 19 virus, everyone was faced with a situation like never before. A complete lockdown in more than 22 states with postponement of exams in schools, colleges etc gave new learning opportunities to educators which involves greater use of technology while implementing Social Distancing. At this time of Social Distancing to protect everyone from disease, we need to assign our students daily work and stay tuned with them to get the feedback, solve their difficulties, keep them away from rumours and update them with important information issued in public interest by the government.
If we look at the larger positive side of this situation,  this has given us an opportunity spend the much awaited time with our closed ones and has also given us opportunity to try our hands at new learning opportunities, strategies using the technology and implement them in our teaching and learning styles effectively.
While social distancing requires staying aloof but need of the hour is to stay connected with our family, relatives, work place, colleagues, students and school leadership through alternate modes of communication(s) by simple calls, Whats app group chats, group calls, video recording of lessons prepared by yourself or by using any other apps – You tube, Khans Academy, Zoom, Skype and many more.
Let’s pray for everyone’s well being while being connected and safe.
Let’s fight it together.

Be Focused
Today, I wish to share my views on what should we do  to be focused during our study in
 
order to attain success.
1. Discover inside you what you want to become.
2. Break the aim /target down into parts.
3. When you finish your daily target,reward yourself by giving time for your favourite sport or your hobby.
4.Make a study routine and paste it in your study place.
5. Be clear about why you want to get good marks.
6. Use a mind map to organize the information in every subject like flow chart or tree diagrams etc.
7. Make a “boring” subject interesting by watching its short videos or doing its objective questions & checking score.
8.We cannot learn or memorize everything so try to understand the topics.
9. Never hesitate to ask your doubts to your teacher .
10. Study in short breaks not to loose interest in subject.
11. Organize your time as per priority of topics .
12.Schedule weekly relaxations like Sunday etc
13. Give time to do exercise / cycling/ outdoor jogging as a good health helps in sound study.
14. Focus on the process, not the result.
15. Get rid of distractions like mobile, tv , outing with friends, etc by deciding a fixed time for them say 1-2 hrs.
16. Stick to some values of a good student like honesty (sincere hard work) , perseverance(hard work with patience) , self commitment (work as determined) , introspection(to look back to your work) , self confidence(belief on own work), awarenesss(attentiveness toward one's aim)
Dear students, always remember what our great Scientist & President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam said for students-:
“ If you fail, never give up because F.A.I.L. means "First Attempt In Learning"
- End is not the end, if fact E.N.D. means "Effort Never Dies"
- If you get No as an answer, remember N.O. means "Next Opportunity".
So Let's be positive.

  साहस

किसी भी काम को करने के लिए साहस होना चाहिए। यदि आपके अंदर हिम्मत नही होगी तो आप कुछ नही कर पायेंगे। हर चीज के लिए आपको हिम्मत चाहिए। चाहे वह छोटा कार्य ही कयों नाहो। जो आदमी यह महसूस  करता है किसी महान निश्चय के समय वह साहस से काम नहीं ले सका ;जिंदगी की चुनौतियों को कबूल नहीं कर सका; वह सुखी नहीं हो सकता है। बड़े मौके पर साहस नहीं दिखाने पर आप अपना वह लक्ष्य प्राप्त करने में विफल रहते हैं। विश्व के 95% व्यक्ति अपने लक्ष्य को या कार्य को प्रारंभ इसलिए नहीं कर पाते हैं कयोंकि वे इस बात से  डर जाते हैं की वह कहीं कोई गलती कर बैठेंगे या  असफल  हो जाएंगे । केवल 5% व्यक्ति ही अपने लक्ष्य प्राप्ति हेतु जोखिम लेने की हिम्मत जुटा पाते हैं ।अंतत अपने लक्ष्य को प्राप्त कर उन 5% महान व्यक्तियों की श्रेणी में सम्मिलित हो जाते हैं ,जिन्हें  यह विश्व महापुरुष के रूप में जानते  हैं । वर्तमान में विश्व में कई चुनोतियाँ  मुंह फैलाये खड़ी हैं ;जिनसे वे ही जीत पाएंगे जो इनका मुकाबला करने की हिम्मत दिखा पायेंगे । विद्यार्थियों को भी हर चुनौती का सामना करने का साहस रखना चाहिए । तभी वह अपने लक्ष्य को प्राप्त कर पाएंगे।

Learning during Isolation
These days, people are at home, not going out as the whole world is facing the threat of Covid- 19.  I think all of us are seeing such disaster first time in life.  But if we are careful and responsible, we will overcome  soon. In this circumstance, we need to think positive and utilize this time to  make ourselves engrossed in some creative and constructive work which can enhance our skills and can give positive outputs. We can write, read books or newspapers, draw, paint, sing, dance, play indoor games, learn cooking, strengthen our vocabulary, watch news, help your mother in house holding chores, recall good memories through photos or videos etc.
There are many things you can do which you generally can't do during working days. Apart from that, you have time to take care of yourself and your family well. During this lockdown, mobile and TV ( technology) are also playing a big role in our lives, we can use them to increase our knowledge, for online learning and to get connected to each other and  to the outer world also.  We must take healthy food and fruit to stay healthy, wash our hands properly and regularly, maintain social distancing and keep our surroundings clean to stay safe as it is very well said, 'Prevention is Better than Cure." Actually, this is the time to be yourself at home, so know yourself better and strengthen your abilities and hobbies.

SKILL
Social Media during  Lockdown
Social media is a medium which is used by maximum number of people. It is a medium through which people talk to their family,friends etc., become members spend their time and share their current mood with the public. 
Many people use this medium in a beneficial way,where they get something to learn but some misuses these apps.
In our country India earlier people were given 1GB data for a month , so people used to use data as much as minimum they could use so, that rest of the month they can have something for time pass, but now people are given 1GB data for a single day, then also some people say that it's not enough.
As all over the globe except some countries COVID-19 is spreading very fast, to prevent this lockdown has been done, that's why people are using more technology but not in a proper way.
Many people are sharing unverified information and rumours that by doing this corona will not enter in your house, but people are not understanding that it is not a monster that who will not enter to your house.Many people are misusing social media.
People should understand that by sharing these all things they will not get a solution to this problem but people will do anything which can cause them harm.
So, people should understand and should support our government to defeat Corona Virus .
Stay home Stay safe.
