Happiness comes from Within 
We everyday come across many quotes on happiness. But, we actually don't know what
happiness is. It is different for everyone. Today, staying home is making me happy but it is so possible that tomorrow going out and enjoying it might make me happy. At times, we keep running behind things thinking that having it will make me happy but when we achieve it, our level of happiness changes! Hence, it is very important to decide what we want in life. Material things will get us happiness for a limited time and so it is the inner satisfaction that will make us happy. It is important to realize what we want and once we know that, happiness would follow. 

Let us understand this through an example: Having a big house, a fancy car is something we all aim for! But tomorrow if we don't have time to enjoy any of it or have family to live with, these objects will just be there as our asset in the financial books but in reality we will be all alone. So, that's where we know that it is family which makes us happy and the Satisfaction derived from it, will make us more confident and happier, even if we don't own a big house or car!! 

Being happy makes one more efficient as we synergies all our efforts towards delivering the best. It is a virtue. Happy people also make their surroundings relaxed and work as a catalyst in reducing stress. Thus, avoiding the unnecessary hustle and rat race and trying to be content knowing what is important is a ladder to being happy and once this inner happiness is achieved, there's no stopping success! 
Stay happy always!

Laughter is the Best Medicine
Laughter is the best medicine for a person to be happy. A good laugh has great short-term effects. This medicine is not available at any pharmacy, is free of cost and comes with no instruction manual. In today's stressful life people have just forgotten to live in the present and enjoy the little moments. 
Laughter brings positive energy and rejuvenates the relationship. Laughter is the biggest stress buster.
When you have a good hearty laugh, the muscles move and expand the blood vessels, which send more blood to all parts of the body. When one smiles, the movement of the facial muscles sends signals to the brain.

A good dose of laughter regulates the blood sugar.  It is considered the best way to relax oneself as it reduces the level of stress hormones. Laughter allows all our senses to combine naturally and effortlessly to give a sense of peace and joy. It also  reduces the negative thoughts that weaken the immune system of the body. A happy person has a higher ability to fight diseases since he is in the right frame of mind and hence takes his medicines on time. The immune system goes into a stress free zone.

Laughter is an excellent exercise for the facial muscles. About 15 facial muscles come together to bring that glee to your face. Laughing increases the blood supply to your cheeks that nourishes the skin and makes your face glow. It tones up the face, giving you an attractive look. So always keep laughing,  smiling and stay healthy.

Change your Path not Destination
'Success is a journey not a destination.' The doing is often more important than the
Made by Adam/ UKG
outcomes. Focusing on the journey also shines a light on what else you get out of trying to reach your goal. Even you might not need to reach your goal to be successful. Shoot for the moon; even if you missed you will still be among the stars.

In life things happen around us, things happens to us, the only thing s that truly matters is , how you choose to react to it and what learned out of it. Life is all about learning, accepting and converting your struggle into learning. If things go against don't confuse your destination. If plan A didn't work, so what we have 25 letters remaining try them. Just because it's stormy doesn't mean that you are not for sunshine.

Even rivers never change their destination to merge in ocean how can we do without trying. Never change yourself for anyone.  We all make mistakes, hurt, disappoint people but do not trap yourself in past happening learn from it and leave it. It's never late to start again, to do what you destined to do. Your circumstances are a reflection of your choice and they can be change through your power to wiser decision. Every morning brings a new beginning use it wisely. You need not required to do great things to be great, do small things in great ways

प्रकृति का मानव जाति को पाठ
प्रकृति का मानव जाति को पाठ पढ़ाने का अपना तरीका है।  जब कठिन पाठ पढ़ाया जाता है , तो प्रकृति भी एक कठोर शिक्षक बन जाती है। कोविड - 19 अभी हमारे लिए प्रकृति द्वारा पढ़ाया जा रहा सबसे कठिन पाठ है। इस महामारी ने हमें यह सिखाया है कि हम यह सुनिश्चित करें कि हम शिक्षण प्रदान करने के सभी रास्ते तलाशते रहते हैं। शिक्षक कभी भी हार मानकर नहीं बैठते हैं। वह अपने विद्यार्थियों की सहायता एवं देखभाल के लिए विभिन्न रास्ते तलाशते रहते हैं। उनमें से अभी के समय में एक रास्ता जो शिक्षकों ने तलाशा वह है ऑनलाइन शिक्षा का। इसके लिए पहले शिक्षकों को खुद को सब कुछ सीखना पड़ा ,ताकि वह विद्यार्थियों को अच्छे तरीके से ऑनलाइन शिक्षा दे सकें।

 सीखने की कोई उम्र नहीं होती है और ना ही सीखने का कभी अंत होता है। सीखना - सिखाना ताउम्र चलता रहता है। अभी जो हम यह ऑनलाइन शिक्षा चला रहे है यह भी प्रकृति की ही मेहरबानी है। अगर ऐसी स्थिति नहीं आती तो अभी हम ऑनलाइन शिक्षा नहीं कर रहे होते। पहली बार ऑनलाइन क्लासरूम दुनिया पर राज कर रहे हैं। उपस्थिति हमारे लिए हमेशा सबसे बड़ी चुनौती रही है। इस कठिन समय में जब विद्यालय बंद है। उसके बावजूद भी उनके अध्यापक दिन - रात मेहनत करके उनके लिए पढ़ाने के नए - नए तरीके खोजकर योजनायें बनाकर उनको पढ़ा रहे हैं।तो विद्यार्थियों का यह कर्त्तव्य बनता है कि वे नियमित अपनी कक्षाओं में अपनी उपस्थिति दर्ज करवाएँ और जो भी सिखाया जाता है, पूर्ण ईमानदारी से सीखने का प्रयत्न करें। कुछ पाठों को कठिन तरीके से सिखाया जाता हैं ,लेकिन हमें सीखना चाहिए और कोविड - 19 सम्पूर्ण मानवजाति के लिए गंभीर रूप से सीखने वाला सबक है।

Self Motivation
Self-motivation will always lead one to success provided that one stays committed after
being motivated. Self-motivation is of great help in fulfilling your own objectives and to make your life as you want. Let’s discuss how important self-motivation is for an individual.

The Oxford English dictionary definition of motivation is it’s a reason or reasons for acting or behaving in a particular way. It’s a desire or willingness to do something. Motivation is a psychological process reinforcing one to take action in order to accomplish one’s desired goals or objectives.

Self-motivation definition is staying motivated due to one’s own interest. One should be a self-motivated person, as self-motivation is the key to living a satisfying life. Self-motivation plays a vital role in one’s own life, as it enables one to make self-assessment as often as one can. The process of self-assessment discloses one’s strengths and weakness by which one can strengthen more one’s strengths and begins to strive for overcoming weakness. In this way, self-motivation leads one to the desired success in life.

One of the main reasons why self-motivation is important in your life is that it does not let you depend on others and you can achieve success in your own goals and objectives that you set on the basis of your abilities, while it aids you to eradicate your weakness that hinders your success. In this way, each and every objective you establish for yourself.

Be Yourself 
A few days before, I was watching a TV show and in that episode, a famous poet was invited. He was too good at writing poetries and reciting them in his own way. Meanwhile, the host asked the audience to ask questions to the guest. One boy who was sitting in the audience stood up and said, "Sir, you are a good poet, I would like to recite a few lines of your poem in your way."  The poet said, "Yes please." The boy recited and got the appreciation of the audience. Then, he said, "Give me blessings, I want to be like you, you are a famous poet, I hope I could also recite the poem the way you did." Then the poet said, "if you really want to do something in life, don't copy me or anyone else, be yourself, be like you. 

Come up with your originality, create your own version. Write your own poems and give them your own new style of reciting it. This will lead you to success.  That thing really inspired me. He meant that rather than concentrating on becoming like any stars or anyone, we need to give time to develop our own style. It's good to get inspired by others, learning good things from others but until you don't have your own talent or skills, you can't get success. 

I truly believe that everybody is blessed with some or other skills and we need to enhance it with hard work and regular practices. That thing really inspired me. We need to identify our skills and have faith in ourselves. We need to focus on our own style of performing our excellence; this will create a difference in our life. What would have happened if Sachin Tendulkar left cricket and ran for becoming doctor or engineer or what would have happened if he also played like any of the famous players of his time, would he be what is today? The answer is no. So we must observe and be ourselves to go ahead and achieve success in life.

मनोबल
मनोबल का अर्थ है हौसला। मनुष्य समाज में रहता है उसे जन्म से ही कार्य करने पड़ते हैं। वह शिक्षा हो या
अन्य कार्य, मनोबल सीधे कार्य निष्पादन को प्रभावित करता है। मनोबल  व्यक्ति की आंतरिक मानसिक शक्ति तथा आत्मविश्वास का पर्याय है। जिस प्रकार शरीर बल को बढ़ाने के लिए पौष्टिक भोजन और व्यायाम एवं विशेष उपचारों का सहारा लिया जाता है उसी प्रकार मनोबल के लिए भी ध्यान, धारणा यौगिक अभ्यास की  जरूरत होती हैं । जिन का मनोबल गिर गया वे साधारण  कामों को भी पर्वत के समान भारी मानते हैं ।

वह उत्साह और साहस ही है जिसके सहारे सामान्य लोग बड़े काम कर दिखाते हैं। जिन लोगों के पास मनोबल होता है वह कोई भी कार्य करने के लिए तत्पर होते हैं जैसे राणा सांगा को  80 गहरे घाव लगे थे तो भी वह लड़ाई के मैदान में पूर्ववत अपना जौहर दिखाते रहे ।वैसे ही विद्यार्थियों को अपना मनोबल नहीं खोना चाहिए। कोरोना जैसी महामारी के कारण   बच्चे   विद्यालय नहीं जा पा रहे हैं  । अब ऑनलाइन क्लासेस चल रही है उसमें मन लगाकर आत्मविश्वास और मनोबल को कायम रखते हुए पढ़ाई जारी रखनी चाहिए। कार्य के प्रति उमंग रखनी चाहिए। मनुष्य को मनोबल बढ़ाने के लिए  कई उपाय बताए गए हैं उनका अभ्यास करना चाहिए।

Gratitude - Inner fulfillment
I personally feel that gratitude is affirmation of goodness and when we look at life as a whole, gratitude encourages us to identify some amount of goodness in our life. It leads to inner fulfillment and happiness. It makes us more empathetic towards all the living beings as well as things.

We should be thankful of each and every small thing which makes us happy, which helps us, which fulfill our needs and wants. As a human being we often forget to say thank you. Yes, we say thanks to people who help us, who solve our problems, who finds out way for us etc. But we do not say thank you to the things we use. They are also an important part of our life. For example the cup in which you drink coffee, the book in which you write, the glass in which you drink water are the things which fulfill you in the best possible way. We should give them respect and tell them thank you because they have fulfilled our needs and wants. It may sound insane, but without those things we cannot stay a comfortable life. So we should express immense gratitude to them as well.

The second part of gratitude is figuring out where that goodness comes from. We recognize the sources of this goodness as being outside of ourselves. It didn’t stem from anything we necessarily did ourselves in which we might take pride. We can appreciate positive traits in ourselves, because gratitude blocks toxic, negative emotions, such as envy, resentment, regret—emotions that can destroy our happiness. Gratitude could be magical key to inner peace as well. Once we start thanking our surroundings, our ecosystem, our people. We can eventually make the world a happy place to live in.

Inspirational Story of Aryan Mishra
Hello everyone, I hope you all are safe and secure in this time of pandemic. Today, I am
going to tell you about Mr. Aryan Mishra. Today I am going to tell his inspiration story how he became an astronaut in life.  Aryan lives in a slum colony in New Delhi.He is son of a newspaper seller.He is a passionate space enthusiast.At the age of 11 Aryan was known as a psycho, people used to call him a mad and crazy child.

At 11, he bought his first telescope by skipping canteen meals and walking to school and started looking at the sky. He kept his passion hidden from his parents and observed the night sky with his telescope. Aryan wakes up at 4 o clock every morning and helps to sell newspaper before going to school. At 14, he discovered a near-Earth asteroid in All India Asteroid Search Campaign. When he discovered an asteroid, he was mesmerized with the night sky.

He shared his passion with many students, getting many interested in astronomy.His humble beginnings did not stop him from pursuing his dreams. Sharing his knowledge on astronomy with thousands across the globe through Skype.

His discovery has been designated as 2014 00372.
I have attended Aryan Sir's online classes on Zoom. I have learnt about stars, planets , formation of Nebula, how space shuttle opens in space etc.

Respect
"Respect is a two-way street, if you want to get it, you've got to give it" said R.C. RISCH. It is true that in present day and age, respect is slowly declining day by day. People are becoming more and more self-centered and unsympathetic to those around them whether it is a person or an animal, as a result, they have no regard for other people's right and feelings. Everyone should be respected as an individual. 

Respect is a positive feeling or attitude shown towards someone or something. It conveys a sense of admiration for good or valuable qualities. The value of respect is taught during childhood because the process of indigenous children participating in and learning about their community is an important aspect of culture.

In India, respect towards elders is shown as by touching their feet, it is believed that the feet are the source of power and love. In some areas people show respect by kissing on the hands of their parents or grandparents. 

If we accidentally touche a book by our foot, we immediately apologize it with single hand gesture done with right hand by touching the object then to our forehead (that is called Pranama) as books are the manifestations of Saraswati ji, goddess of knowledge. We do it same as for money as it is the manifestation of the goddess of wealth, Lakshmiji. 

We must respect our elders in each and every aspect as not to argue with them, help them in their work. Respect is not only meant for elders, we must respect our younger also and any animals. Animals have also the right to live in this world, we must not hurt them.
At last I want to say another quote written by Bruce Lee that " Knowledge will give you power, but character respect".

कोरोनाकाल में यात्रा का अनुभव
मेरे दादाजी की तबियत अचानक खराब हो जाने के कारण हमें तुरंत कलकत्ता जाना पड़ा। हम बाली से कार
द्वारा जोधपुर रेलवे स्टेशन पहुँचे। वहाँ हमें एक कतार में खड़ा किया गया और हमारी जाँच की गई कि कहीं हम कोरोना से संक्रमित तो नहीं हैं। फिर हमारे ऊपर सेनेटाइजर का छिड़काव किया गया। हम लोग रेल के अंदर गए और वहाँ पर जो हमारी बैठने की सीट थी उसको मेरे माता - पिता ने सेनेटाइज किया। फिर हम लोग अपनी सीट पर बैठ गए।कुछ ही देर में रेल यात्रियों से भर गई। हम लोग सावधानीपूर्वक सफर का आनंद लेते रहे। हम लोग घर से खाना - पानी लेकर गए थे , हमने रास्ते में खाना खाया। 

जैसे ही हम लोग मेरे दादाजी के घर पहुँचे तो कुछ लोगों ने हमें कोरेंटाइन में 14 दिन रहने को कहा और हमें हमारे परिवार वालों से अलग कर दिया व बाहर नहीं निकलने के लिए कहा गया। इधर दादाजी बीमार है, फिर भी मैं , मम्मी व पापा कोई भी उनके पास नहीं जा सकते हैं। उन्हें छू नहीं सकते , उनकी देखभाल नहीं कर सकते और ना ही उनसे बातें कर सकते हैं। मुझे इस बात का बहुत दुःख होता है। 
कोविड 19 के कारण मुझे घर में पढ़ाई करनी पड़ती है , जो की मोबाईल से होती है। वो मुझे बिल्कुल अच्छा नहीं लगता है। मुझे मेरे विद्यालय की बहुत याद आती है। मैं चाहता हूँ कि विद्यालय तुरंत खुल जाए और मैं अपने अध्यापकों व मित्रों से मिल पाऊँ। 
धन्यवाद।

Importance of Exercise in our Daily Life.
Exercise is very important for our proper health and fitness. Physical exercise is necessary in each and every sphere of life. The youths of our society eat a lot of junk food and thus look aged before time.Their poor health is also one of the social problems. People without good health cannot contribute to the growth of our nation. Therefore, to overcome all these problems not only youth but everyone should do exercise in order to stay fit and healthy. To succeed in life both mental and physical development is important. Exercise are really important for the overall development in one's life. Exercise improves your health and reduces the risk of developing several diseases.

COVID-19
Covid-19 is the disease which is caused by virus named coronavirus. It has affected 213
countries in the world and 14,366,048 population of the world. In India it has affected nearly 11 lakh people and due to this disease 27 thousands of people have died. It has affected world economy also. Most of the labourers have lost their jobs and due to this, most of the people are hungry, they don't have food to eat. In this difficult time, we need to lend our helping hands to the needy one. We can help people by giving them food packets and setting their occupation at home. We can prevent ourselves from this disease by social distancing, wearing masks, washing our hands regularly. Now, in the country, the process of unlock from lockdown has started. We need to be very careful but we have to continue with our work. We all need to take care of each other and follow safety rules guided by the government.

Why Hope is important in Life?
Hope is the only thing that keeps you moving forward, it gives you the strength and ability to bounce back from whatever the obstacle you are going through. Even if you fail never loose hope, because failure is never permanent just keep on moving with the hope that you have and you will see new ways which will lead you even to a more grander success than the previous one. Never give upon your hope until you breathe your last breath. In this time of crisis we are very much confused that how to keep our hopes intact but hard times only teach us to be patient and hopeful. If there is no hope we will lose the feeling of being alive. So we should always hope for better days to come. This is the only key which can take us to the right path.

Self Confidence
Self-confidence is a combination of a state of mind and a strong feeling of self-belief which
is commonly used when one needs self-assurance especially in one's personal judgment,power, ability etc. It is that voice which comes from your inside and gives you a boost to do something which fears you. In today's epoch, there is no place for those who lack self-confidence because there is no shortage of competition now. Infinite number of people possess it. And, a great many people are achieving their goals using confidence as a ladder.For students, confidence plays a key aspect of their school life. Higher the self-confidence, more the chances of success.

Anyone who has inculcated this ability enjoys various perks. One of them is that the magnitude of the difficulty of a tough job decreases. It keeps you going when you face failure in your life. It helps you to focus on the areas which laid you down. It gives a spark to your mind to improve and excel in the next try. If you are deficient in this much-needed ability then, there are chances that you would be dominated by pessimism. The absence of confidence can be the reason for your sorrow and dissatisfaction. Simple chores of daily life seem to be challenging when you lack confidence.
