        Good Manners make a Good Citizen            
Good manners are very important in our daily life. A person with good manners show respect towards feelings of others living in the surrounding. To live peacefully and comfortably one must have good manners. They should be observed in every walk of life. They are learnt through interaction and during the early years of education. Parents must teach their kids about their behavior with family members, neighbours, friends, teachers, etc.
At home we should respect our elders and love your younger. We should corporate with each other during household work. At school we should respect our teacher. We should be helpful to those friends who are in need of help. We should treat all as equal. 
At workplace we should not hurt the feelings of others. We should use words such as "Thank you" , "Excuse me", "Please" ,etc. We should have respect for fellow men. A well mannered person is tolerant and he never minds small bitterness and inconveniences. Good manners cost nothing but they repay much. 
In fact, a well mannered person can get things done in most difficult situation. "Without good manners, Man is like a purse without money".

आशा 
आशा का हमारे जीवन में बहुत महत्त्व है। एक व्यक्ति अपने परिवार की सभी जरूरतों और इच्छाओं को पूरा करने के लिए , पैसा कमाने के लिए काम करता है। यहीं आशा है कि वह उन्हें खुश करेगा। आशा वास्तव में हमें कुछ करने का कारण देती है। संसार में प्रत्येक प्राणी एक - दूसरे से कुछ - न - कुछ उम्मीद रखता है। जैसे - एक बीमार व्यक्ति डॉक्टर से आशा रखता है कि ये मुझे स्वस्थ कर देगा।  एक छात्र अपने अध्यापक से उम्मीद रखता है कि मेरा अध्यापक मुझे कभी अनुत्तीर्ण नहीं होने देगा।परन्तु अध्यापक भी छात्रों से उम्मीद रखते हैं कि वे उनको जो भी कार्य दे छात्र उसे समय पर पूरा जरूर करें एवं प्रत्येक परीक्षा में खरा उतरने का प्रयास करें । यहाँ तक की एक जानवर भी इंसान से उम्मीद रखता है कि इंसान खुद खाने के बाद में ही सही मुझे भी कुछ खाने को जरूर देगा। इसी तरह माता - पिता भी अपने बच्चों से उम्मीद रखते है कि हमारे बच्चे जीवन में सफल हो और हमारा कहना माने और जिस तरह से हमने उनका ख्याल रखा वे भी हमारा रखें एवं नेकदिल व जिम्मेदार इंसान बनें। तो  सभी बच्चों से यहीं कहना है कि अपने अध्यापकों एवं अभिभावकों की उम्मीदों पर खरा उतरने का और सफलता प्राप्त करने का भरपूर प्रयास करें और किसी भी क्षेत्र में सफलता पाएँ। अभी जो कोरोना वायरस का कहर और लॉकडाउन का माहौल है ,ऐसे में हम लोग भी अपने ईश्वर / खुदा से उम्मीद करते है कि यह वायरस बहुत जल्दी नष्ट हो जाए और हम हमारी पहले वाली रोजमर्रा की जिंदगी में फिर से लौट सकें। 
घर में रहे , सुरक्षित रहे , अपना ख्याल रखें।

Caring 
What is caring? Caring is when you do a good deed for someone because it is the right thing to do. Caring is one of the most important values of our life. Caring can be learned by all human beings. Caring is to look after or concern for someone. In our school also students take care of each other. They help each other in studies, sharing things and even share their lunch. We also care for the people with whom we are attached. For example - Our vegetables grow well in our school garden because we water them and do the weeding. You need to give the care to receive the same. If we care for someone they may feel happy or feel special. Without a sense of caring, there will be no sense of community.
Caring about the people, things, life is an act of maturity. Caring people are eager to provide encouragement and support when needed most. We can tell our children to look after someone who is new in the class who doesn't speak English. We care for our school so it is a great place to learn.
It's important to care for everyone even if it's not easy sometimes. This value can help the children to be kind to others and respect themselves as well as others. When you care for someone, you make a difference in the world with kindness. If you really like someone and care about them, you can survive many difficulties.
Caring is supporting people as they go through tough times. Caring is helping others in time of needs. The world will be a better place if we care for one another.

भारतीय शास्त्रीय संगीत
भारतीय शास्त्रीय संगीत का हम अगर सही सही अर्थ करें तो इसका अर्थ होगा की ऐसा संगीत जो हमे सत्य, शांति, आंनद, अहिंसा, प्रेम की ओर जाने के लिए प्रेरित करता है उसे भारत में संगीत कहा जाता है।
भारत में संगीत का अर्थ वह नही है जो पश्चिम में संगीत का है। पश्चिम में संगीत का मतलब मन के मनोरंजन से है लेकिन भारत में संगीत का अर्थ पूजा, प्रार्थना और साधना से है।
भारतीय संगीत के दो प्रकार है- उत्तरी भारतीय संगीत और दक्षिणी भारतीय संगीत और दोनों ही अपने आप में महान है। भारतीय संगीत में कई तरह तर की राग और ताल है जिन्हे हम सुने तो ये हमारे मन को अपूर्व रूप से शांत करते हैं और हमारे भीतर की अशांति को मिटा देते है भारत का संगीत वेदों के अनुसार हजारों वर्षों से भी बहुत प्राचीन है

Friendship
We have some relation by birth which we don't have to create and have a strong bonding with them naturally. But there is a relation we make which is based on love, care, understanding and trust are called friendship. In my opinion, friendship is a pure relationship between two people which is beyond selfishness. 
A friend is a person with whom we can share anything, which we can't share with anyone else. Friendship is not just about having fun or sharing happiness with each other, it's about standing by each other and supporting each other whenever it is needed and must correct each other whenever he or she is doing wrong and helps to show the right path.  It is the only relation which does not see the differences in religion, caste, financial status etc. 
When we have friendship with someone,  we should accept him with his weakness and strength too because nobody is perfect in this world.  A friend is one who doesn't afraid to stand by you even if hundreds of people are against you.  People must have enough faith in each other that no one can create misunderstanding between them. Friendship brings sweetness in life. It can make us laugh at a difficult time. When I see children, I feel they love to come to the school because of their friends, they play, eat, study and laugh together. They won't like to come to school if they don't have their friends there.

सकारात्मक सोच
इस वक्त दुनिया भर में  कोरोना वायरस के बढ़ते खतरे के बीच मे अपने-अपने घरों में बंद हैं अगर हम  सोच रहे हैं कि घर में बैठकर भी क्या कुछ नया कर सकते हैैं यह कहानी आइजेक न्यूटन की है |  बात है 1661की जब आइजेेेक न्यूटन  ने केम्रिज यूनिवर्सिटी में एडमिशन लिया  था | जब ये जाते थे कॉलेज में पढ़ने तो सोचा करते थे की सैलेबस आउटडेटेड नहीं है कुछ नए रिसर्च नहीं है कुछ नया करने की सोचते थे पर समय नहीं मिल पाता था | 
1665 दुनिया में फैल गई ब्यूबोनिक महामारी चलते समय सेट डाउन होने लगा और लॉक डाउन होने लगा और आज वाली स्थिति तब बन गई थी | तब केम्रिज  यूनिवर्सिटी में भी छुट्टियां हो गई तब आइजेक न्यूटन  को घर जाना पड़ा था वो बुल्सटॉप नगर पहुंचे तो सेल्फ आइसोलेशन में चले गए हम सब की तरह अपने अपने घरों में बंद हो गए और यह सोचने लगे कि अब मैं कुछ नया कर सकता हूं एक दिन वो बगीचे में घूम रहे थे तो उन्होंने देखा सेब नीचे गिरा पेड़ से सेब नीचे गिरा और तब उन्होंने सोचा कि यह Apple  नीचे क्यों गिरा ऊपर क्यों नहीं गया| 
तब उन्होंने दुनिया को दिया यूनिवर्सल लॉ आफ ग्रेविटी उस वक्त जब नकारात्मकता फैली हुई थी| आइजेक न्यूटन ने अपने अंदर से  पॉजिटिविटी लाकर के कर दिखाया | यह छोटी सी कहानी आज हमें सिखाती है कि जिस हालात में हम हैं सब को पॉजिटीव रहना है ,खुश रहना हैI अच्छी अच्छी बातें सोचनी हैं और सोचना है कि अपने बारे में आपको ऐनेलाइज करना है वो वक्त आपको मिल चुका है | जिससे आप अपने बारे में सोचें भागती दौड़ती दुनिया में हम सब भाग रहे थे लेकिन अपने आपको परिवार को वक्त नहीं दे रहे थे |
विद्यार्थियों को कहना चाहूंगा कि आप लोग सैलेबस को पढ़ पढ़ कर बोर हो गए हो तो अब इंटरनेट के माध्यम से सीखने का समय आ चुका है इसका सदुपयोग करना चाहिए और आत्मविश्वास रखकर कुछ नया आविष्कार करना चाहिए जिससे दुनिया में आपका नाम होI इस कहानी से  सीख  लेंनी चाहिए कि वक्त कैसा भी हो हमें अपनी सोच को हमेेेशा सकारात्मक रखना चाहिए |

Work of the Youth
To use the latest technology in the right way is in the hands of the youth today. The present youth in this world is very familiar with the internet. But do you think that they're using this in the right direction? There are many of them who are using these for the wrong purpose like hacking, stealing people's private information. Technology products can provide you with a lot of information and help a person in different aspects of life. 
It can help people connecting with each other seated far across from them but if used in the right way. People always say that it's the duty of the parents to make sure what the child is doing on the internet, yes it is their duty. But is also the duty of the child to know what is right and what is wrong and if by chance they do make a mistake, they should inform their parents so that the problem can be resolved right then causing no harm. It is the duty of every human on Earth.
