To Cultivate the Love of Learning 

However, when children develop a love for learning, half the battle is won. There would be no need to

force children to complete assignments or to pressurize them to study to achieve good grades. They would want to learn naturally, finding new information and discovering answers by themselves. Here are four tried and tested ways, based on my teaching experience, to cultivate the love of learning in children:

1. Create A Safe Space For Children To Ask Questions- Children have the gift of curiosity and they should be allowed to pursue it without the fear of being judged or scolded. Once they have this safe space, their quest for knowledge will be ongoing and limitless. In my classes, I welcome questions instead of shunning them. As a result, my students get into the habit of not just asking me but also their peer's questions and, hence, deepening their learning.  

2. Expose Children To Different Outdoor Environments- Oftentimes, the outdoor spaces are the best classrooms, as learning becomes authentic when children are allowed to experience and interact with their surroundings. 

3. The Power Of Technology- The saying “If you can’t beat them, join them” holds true in this case. We cannot stop the advancement of technology in our children’s lives, but we can sure tap on the variety of resources available online or in the form of apps to enhance our children’s learning. Today we use maximum technology for learning.  

4. Most children love dabbling in different art forms- such as painting, sketching, music, drama and dance because it allows them to bring their imagination to life. Practicing the arts not only improves the skills of the child but also makes them more sensitive to the world around them. 

I hope these suggestions are useful for everyone.. It is my wish that schools, teachers and parents form solid partnerships to create learning environments to nurture the love of learning in children.

International Youth Day

Every year on 12th August,” United Nations International Youth Day” is celebrated to recognize efforts

of the world’s youth in enhancing global society. The main aim is to promote different ways to encourage them in becoming more active in making positive contributions towards society.

The youth of the age group between 15 to 24 years fall in this category. Youth form one-sixth of the population of the world. Young people proposed the idea for International Youth Day in 1991. In 1998, a resolution was passed to recognize 12th August as International Youth Day. It was later endorsed by the UN General Assembly in 1999. The first International Youth Day was observed in 2000.

It is aimed to bring everyone’s attention to youth issues all over the world. The slogans and themes used during the previous years are as follows – Mental Health (2014), Youth and Civic Engagement (2015), The Road to 2030- Eradicating Poverty and Achieving Sustainable Consumption and Production (2016), Youth Building Peace (2017), Safe Spaces for Youth (2018), Transforming Education (2019).

On this day different activities and events are held. For example, conferences are held where different speakers from various countries and fields encourage and motivate youth. Debates and discussions and award ceremonies are also held. In 2018 and 2019 International Youth Day was hosted by Indian Youth Café, Chennai. The event has its own speciality in empowering the youth.

For 2020, the theme is “Youth Engagement for Global Action”. It aims to highlight different ways of engagement of young people at the local, national and global levels and enrich multilateral institutions and processes, as well as draw lessons on how their representation and engagement in formal institutional politics can be enhanced. The government also wants help from youth in helping to create awareness among people regarding Covid-19. This will help to save all people especially the youth in being victims to Covid-19.

The World of Books



One word we should never forget that’s “BOOK"

Once finding a friend in the book 

One will never feel lonely.

And this bond remains till the end of life.       

Books are great friends of mine 

Who share multiple notions? 

Hence the deal with everyone’s emotions 

They deal with anger and grief but never complain. 

Books take us to the places unexplored 

 It amazes me, reveals the identity of people unknown. 

  It gives us delight and enlightens our life.

They are the boats which sail us to further places. 

On a journey of imagination and fairyland.

The greatest of the books of our mythology  

  Gives us answers, of the questions untold 

 My friendship with them is ever unbreakable. 

As we share a peaceful conversation        

I promise to keep you beside me       

No matter where and how I am.

It also develops leadership qualities of the students.

समस्या समाधान 

किसी समस्या का समाधान (हल) प्राप्त करने के लिये हमें विभिन्न पहलुओं का  क्रमबद्ध तरीके से विश्लेषण करना पड़ता है। रोजमर्रा की जिंदगी में बहुत से कारक ऐसे आते है, जिनको समझ लेने की बाद ही निष्कर्ष निकलता है कि इससे कैसे निपटे और उसका सामना कैसे करे ? 

व्यक्ति मानसिक और शारीरिक तौर पर मजबूत होगा तभी ऐसी परिस्थितियों से निकल सकता है।इसके लिए हमें अपनी जीवन शैली में बदलाव करने की ज़रुरत है। एक बालक अपनी समस्याओं के निवारण हेतु कोशिश तो करेगा लेकिन सही क्रम अपनाने में गलती कर लेता है। उसके समाधान के लिए वयस्कों की मदद की आवश्कता होती है। 

सबसे पहले व्यक्ति को मानसिक तौर पर मजबूती चाहिए ।  उसके लिए एकाग्रता, सकारात्मकता होना आवश्यक है। यह तभी होगा जब हम नियमित योगाभ्यास करेंगे। अच्छे और प्रेरणास्पद साहित्य पढ़ेंगे और शिष्ट व्यक्तियों के साथ अपने विचारों का आदान प्रदान करेंगे। विपरीत परिस्थितियों से लड़ने का हौसला होगा। प्रत्येक समस्या अपने साथ समाधान रखती है बस जरूरत है तो धैर्यवान बनने की, नए तरीकों को खोजने की। हम धरती से सभी समस्याओं को मिटा नहीं सकते लेकिन उसके लिए रास्ता तो खोज सकते है। यह धैर्य और सकारात्मता से ही होगा।

 किसी विषय से संबंधित समस्याओें के लिए निरन्तर अभ्यास करना चाहिए। जिससे हमारा भविष्य बेहतर बन सके। क्योंकि हम जो हमेशा कार्य करते है वो सफलता पाने के लिए नहीं है बल्कि यह सुनिश्चित करने के लिए है कि हम कहीं असफल न हो।

Self Motivation

Motivation is a very strong tool that we can use to get further in life to achieve our dreams and goals.

Setting goals for ourselves is something that I consider to be very important, I believe in always pushing myself further and further in life, not only physically but mentally as well. We all have different things or tools we can use to motivate us towards our end goals. In order for us to stay motivated, we have to have a goal and be driven towards achieving that goal.

Self-motivation is the window of a room with a closed-door that keeps you reminding that there is always a way to achieve things you desire. Wanting to do something and motivating yourself to actually do it are two different things. The difference between those who never reach their goals, even after years and years, and those who achieve one goal after another is nothing but their self-motivation, it’s the positive inner force that pushes them to move further and help them achieve their goals.

When you think you want to give up on something, or you just don’t know how and where to start from, your self-motivation is the key that unlocks the door for you to explore and achieve. With self-motivation, learn and grow – regardless of the hurdles coming in your way. That’s why it’s such a fundamental tool for reaching your goals, achieving your dreams, and succeeding, in this journey called life.

Positive thinking is an important element to build strong self-confidence. It’s important to look at things positively, especially when things aren’t going as per plans and you really want to give up. If you keep thinking negative about things or you feel you won’t succeed, it may influence things around you in such a way that all your negative predictions will come true which will make you more and more upset.

This happens in the cases where you need to work hard to achieve your goals, or if you need to persuade others to support you in order to succeed. Your thoughts have a major influence on your success or failure, so make sure those thoughts are “on your side.

”Focusing on your goals is also an important part to keep yourself motivated. When you have many goals, always schedule your time and resources effectively. You can achieve the “focus” part of self-motivation by prioritizing and establishing a schedule that will help you succeed in accomplishing your work more effectively. It doesn’t make sense to work until you’re exhausted or give up one goal to achieve another or just simply doing half of every work and completing none. So always keep motivating and stay motivated

Independence Day

Every year on 15th August, India celebrates Independence Day. India became an independent country in the year 1947 from British rule. Each one of us is born free, dies free and wants to live free. India achieved its Independence with great struggle and effort. Several freedom fighters and many great men sacrificed their lives to achieve nation’s freedom from the grip of British rule. The movement of independence in India was started by the Indian freedom fighters under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi. 
These freedom fighters endured severe struggle in order to achieve the nation’s freedom. 15th August is celebrated with high enthusiasm in order to pay honour to our legendary freedom fighters, who sacrificed their lives for our motherland. Independence Day motivates us to love our country and be forever willing to sacrifice our lives for its honour and integrity. Being a part of such a beautiful nation one must not forget these sacrifices. We must honour and preserve the the integrity and dignity of the country. We should maintain the slogan of unity in diversity.

There is a saying that if you want to see change then first change yourself. Because it always starts with us. Freedom is not only a privilege but it is the duty of each and every being of the nation to respect our motherland. We can truly enjoy freedom when we will be free from social differences and many ill practices which happens in the nation. This should not be motivated at any cost. If you expect equality then you should be capable to give equal treatment to everybody. So you must give respect to take respect. On this note, I wish you a very Happy Independence day. Let's spread positivity and peace all around.

Contributions towards the Country

This year we have celebrated our 74th Independence day. Many of us put posts on our social media

status and wish each other on the occasion of National festivals. That is one of the ways to express our love and respect towards our country but don't you think action speaks louder than words. Yes, we should do more than that to contribute towards our country. We should be expressive in both words and action. Sometimes, we should ask ourselves a question, 'What is my contribution towards my country?, I know we all can't be soldiers or corona warriors but still there are many things which we can do to make our country a better place. We can contribute to our country by paying tax on time because this money is used for the development of our country, by doing our work honestly, by helping needy one, by following rules and laws, by raising our voice against wrong, by taking care of public property, by educating ourselves as well as others, by making difference in others life,  by being unselfish, by protecting nature to reduce pollution, by supporting equality, by understanding both our rights and duties, by creating a happy environment etc. Our soldiers are protecting us day and night by sacrificing their lives, so can't we put these little efforts for our country. We really need to think about these things. If we want to see India in the list of developed countries, we have to put our efforts towards it, it is not only the responsibility of the government, and we are the key factor who can bring huge change if we really love our country. These days our Prime Minister Mr. has talked about a vision ' Aatma Nirbhar Bharat' to make a self reliant country.

As he said, Vocal for Local’ we all should also contribute towards it and encourage local business and work on quality products.

Independence Day

'For our tomorrow they give their today'

We all know that India got Independence on 15th August 1947.But don't think this day as a holiday. This is a day of glory, this is a day of pride, not a holiday. Our freedom fighters, our soldiers never said that we don't want freedom now we will fight for it later, today enjoy the holiday. They said that."They live for the country, they fight for the country and they will die for the country.

We have seen Tukde Tukde Gang. These are only *Anti Indian terrorist*.who do only violence and said anti country slogans. They do not even respect the soldiers and their sacrifices they just do politics. If I get a chance to talk  to Tukde Tukde Gang, I will only say that "If soldiers are not there, we will  also not be here".

So respect the sacrifices of our freedom fighters and soldiers.

*Happy Independence Day*

 *Jai Hind*

Importance of Discipline

Good Morning all of you. Today I am going to tell you why discipline is important in our life.

Discipline is an important behavior in life. It is a character trait which is crucial for expressing many other attributes in life. It refers to orderliness in life, which is essential for success in one’s life.

Discipline brings punctuality in a person's life. It teaches the person to be responsible and respectful. An army cannot fight without strict discipline and educational institutions cannot run without discipline. The possession of self discipline enables you to choose, and then preserve with action, thoughts and success. There is a huge role of discipline in students’ life. It also enables a student to maintain routine and can study according to the timetable. Good discipline generate a positive attitude in students which is the most essential thing that students need in their life. Discipline also creates confidence and eagerness in students. Because of these things, students become active in each field of their life.

Students need self-control while talking with their teachers or elder people. So if they do not stay in the discipline they do not have self-control and this becomes unpleasant for them. Students have to use words carefully while talking with someone because of this they also build good relations with others. Lack of Discipline brings failures, stress, uncertainty, regress and remorse in life. Discipline is the ultimate king of success in life. It is the essential for success. Discipline is the core value of universe.

It is rightly said that, “Life without discipline is just like a ship without radar”.

Importance of Sports

Sports are an essential part of our life. It teaches us how to stay strong and healthy and also tests our physical abilities. Usually, when we are going in for any sports activity or match, we compete with other people in order to prove ourself best and also get some entertainment. At the same time, physical exercises bring a bunch of great benefits for the participants.

All kinds of sports benefit us in many ways like strong physical health, great team spirit, and strong organizational features. Many sports like football, basketball, hockey and cricket are taught in school and children also love to play and watch these games. The physiological and physical advantages obtained within sports activities result in enriched physical stamina and improved reflexes. It is one of the top activities which bring great results for people of any age. So we must always participate in every sports activities to keep our body fit and healthy.

WILDLIFE ACTIVISM 

• Activism means a Doctrine or practice that emphasizes direct vigorous action especially and support

of or opposition to one side of a controversial issue wildlife activism. As we all know that wildlife is very important for us in many ways ,especially it has ecological importance wildlife helps in maintaining the ecological balance of nature. killing of carnivorous where it leads to an increase in the number of herbivorous which in turn affect the forest vegetation thus due to lack of food in the forest, they come out from the forest to agricultural land and destroy our crops. 

• There is a big need to save wildlife because day by day its ratio is decreasing on a large scale. Because humans are not aware that wildlife is as important as human life. Some of the biggest threats to wildlife include illegal trade, Habitat destruction, invasive species, pollution and climate change. When we conserve and protect the natural habitat of wildlife species, we reach our planet . To do so, we must keep the animals in their natural place. Conservation of natural habitats will also be beneficial for humans since it helps keep the essential watersheds intact and ensures cleaning, freshwater. 

• One compelling benefit that comes from wildlife conservation efforts is that it ensures food security. Protecting forests from deforestation and rebuilding forest habitats to preserve biodiversity aids in the carbon sequestering process, provides new economic opportunities, and Guards against erosion. Government has also released many policies to save wildlife. As I have told you, humans are not taking care of wildlife, but there are still few people left who are dedicated towards wildlife activism. They are working on and on only for wildlife. These kinds of people are known activists. Activist is a person who campaign for animals to be treated equally to humans 

We can protect animals in many ways: 

• Educate your family about endangered species in your area. 

• Recycle and buy sustainable products. 

• Reduce your water consumption. 

• Reduce your personal footprint. 

• Do not buy plastic products.

Self Respect

Self Respect is an essential element in human life without which we cannot face this world successfully.

With self-respect, you can conquer the world. Without it, you are defeated. It should be your firm belief that you are worthy to yourself and to your community. 

If you suffer from feelings of inferiority, understand how this feeling has come about, why it persists in your life and take practical steps to be free from such feelings. 

A person felt bad in the presence of other people. When it is analyzed, it was found that as a young boy he had a humiliating experience at a party. Later he tried to forget about it. But the experience had stayed with him. A great deal of inferiority feeling is an expression of earlier humiliation. A small girl was sure of her mother’s affection. The one ambition of her infant life was to be accepted and loved by her mother. To her surprise, a brother was born. She developed the feeling that her mother does not love her. And so inferiority troubled her. Her Self Respect went down. 

What does a child do when, in his search for satisfaction finds himself humiliated? He turns the energies that would normally go into fulfillment and happiness and employs them in his rebellion. As he cannot find fulfillment in acceptance and love, secretly he becomes the enemy of those who trouble him. And in rebellion he gets a kind of satisfaction.

As he can not get his joy of being admired, he will suffer until his heart suffers with pain. This practice becomes habit forming. You must break this pattern of life at all costs. As a child, you felt yourself rejected and therefore worthless. This was your first mistake. It is this first error you must rectify. Now, repeatedly, you must tell yourself you are wanted and loved. You must break the feeling of humiliation and revenge by understanding its origin and by giving up the habit that rooted itself in your life.

At last I want to say that never lose your self confidence in any situation because it is the best weapon you have with you so, please hold it till the end of life
