World Teacher’s Day 
If school is a temple, then teachers are definitely the God.
World Teacher's Day is celebrated on 5th October every year for celebrating the anniversary of the 1966 International Labour Organization (ILO) and UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers. This sets the rights and responsibilities of teachers. This day is celebrated to give tribute to the teachers all over the world and to show appreciation and honour. They all find ways to improve the condition of teachers and enhance the teaching techniques for the future generation.  
The theme of this day for 2020 is “Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future”.  This year due to the Covid-19 the education system has to face a lot of problems and so the teachers are under stress and pressure. But as teachers are great fighters they are learning new techniques and going through hardships, just to keep the light of knowledge alive. They are teaching online and taking regular classes. So this year theme is very appropriate.
Thus, 5th October is a day to celebrate the teaching profession all over the world. Being a teacher is one of the toughest professions as the future of the country is in their hands. It is a profession that will never lose its importance. As we know that there is no age limit for learning and so teachers will always be there to guide the students.

Failures are the stepping stones to success
Always remember the obstacles which you face or the failures are the stepping stones to success. It is from those mistakes which makes us a better person and strive hard to our dream destination. Our mistakes teach us what went wrong and how to correct it. Each and every human has come across a phase in their life which they thought was their hardest part of their life. However, this particular phase taught them to become bigger and better. Time and experience have proved to be the best teachers they can be. Every wrong or bad decision we take has a life lesson that we learn. Time is a way of telling how far you have come. Experience is a way of telling how strong you have become. We need to learn from the mistakes that we make. In this wake, we make a stronger version of ourselves that later becomes indestructible. Only from a proper experience phase of your life, you learn how to judge anything and everything in an unbiased manner. A fraction of us has to fall a couple of times on the same stone before they learn that particular lesson. Knowledge is wisdom. Knowledge is everything. The knowledge you have helps you to make a good or bad judgment of the current situations.
Einstein once mentioned, “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” We can completely agree with this great mathematician’s statement. It is the new experience and new exposures that teach you new things. With every new fall, you learn something new. If you are not ready to let yourself fall, then you cannot teach yourself anything new. If you do not do that, you will continue to have bad experiences and it becomes a loop from which you can never get out. This leads to denial, losing self-confidence and blaming others for your experiences. You enter into that stage of your life where you focus only on the negative impacts happening to you. Learning from your mistakes is not easy. Nobody said it was simple. But once you do, you can trust yourself. You believe that you have the power to do anything.
You grow internally and externally when you realize your mistakes. You learn how to prevent the same mistakes from happening again. Some of our mistakes can bring us down and prove to be very dangerous. It may run us into a trap that seems to eat you up. Regardless of the mistake you made, you have to carefully observe and analyze the situation and take the necessary steps. We all are humans. We make mistakes. But it is these mistakes that teach us. So keep learning from your mistakes.

शिष्टाचार और अच्छे संस्कार
बच्चे कोरे कागज यानी खाली कागज की तरह होते हैं जैसे कोई कागज पर लिखेंगे वैसे अक्षर। वे अच्छी लिखावट से लिखेगें तो अच्छे अक्षर उभरेंगे और गंदी लिखावट में लिखेगें तो वैसे हीअक्षर उभरेंगे। इसलिए हमेशा बच्चों के सामने शिष्ट व्यवहार करना चाहिए। सबसे पहले माता-पिता व परिवार के व्यवहार की छाया बच्चों पर पड़ती है ।इसके पश्चात  वह विद्यालय में प्रवेश करते हैं। विद्यालय में अध्यापकगण व साथियों के आचरण का प्रभाव उन पर पड़ता है। छोटे बच्चों के माता-पिता को छोटी-छोटी बातों पर ध्यान देना चाहिए। और उसे समय-समय पर अच्छे संस्कारों से अवगत  कराते रहना.चाहिए।जैसे अगर बच्चे गलती करते हैं तो प्यार से उनको समझाना चाहिए कि उनको ऐसा क्यों नहीं करना चाहिए ।
 
एक बार में नहीं समझे तो बार बार समझाना चाहिए गलती होने पर माफी जरूरी है। बच्चों को सही और गलत का फर्क बताना चाहिए। बच्चों के सामने सच बोलना चाहिए कभी झूठ नहीं बोलना चाहिए । जब वे पानी व्यर्थ गिरा रहे हो तो उनको बताइए कि पानी कितना मूल्यवान है। जब भी बच्चे खाना खाए तो  जितना खाए उतना ही देना चाहिए थाली में खाना नहीं छोड़ना चाहिए। बच्चों को पर्यावरण के बारे में बताना चाहिए कि कैसे हम सब को उस परत्रध्यान देना चाहिए। 
 
बच्चों को सिखाइए  कि कचरे को कूड़ेदान में डालें ,अपने बड़ों का आदर करें। उसेअपने से छोटे बच्चों से भी इज्जत से बोलना चाहिए ये सब संस्कार शिक्षक व परिवार से ही छोटी उम्र में ही मिलते हैं। बड़े होने पर जो शिष्टता बचपन में सीखी उसका प्रभाव जीवन भर रहता है। इसलिए हमेशा विनम्रता व शिष्टाचार का आचरण करना चाहिए। उससे ही अच्छे संस्कार बालक में पनपते हैं।

How to invest your energy into Positivity
As we move through our day, we send energy into the world and we receive energy back. Our minds, bodies and spirits are composed of energy, which vibrates out and is felt by others. Those vibrations resonate within us and impact our own energy stores.
This is why we may feel warm, calm and cheerful in the presence of some people, but cold, anxious and blue around others. We carry that energy with us, and it impacts not only us but all the other people we come in contact with. Good energy can boost our feelings of well-being, dissolve feelings of anxiety and improve communication. Bad energy results in feelings of discord, conflict and resentment. Your goal should be to attract good energy and reject the bad. 
Negative thinking can be hard to stop. It’s easy to allow yourself to slip into pessimism or take on an air of indifference. But if you want to attract good things, you must let the positive guide you, not the negative. As the Dalai Lama says, “See the positive side, the potential, and make an effort.” Actively work to change the tone of your thoughts from negative to positive. Just as you try to limit your negative influences, make sure you start spending time with positive ones. Surround yourself with positive, successful go-getters who are supportive and caring. Keep company with those who bring positive energy with them, and make sure you nurture and protect those relationships.
Find time each day to think about the things you’re grateful for. By finding small ways to practice gratitude, you’ll allow yourself to let go of toxic emotions and replace those with positive thoughts. You can practice gratitude each morning by thinking of 5 things you're grateful for. Then think of at least one person you’re grateful to have in your life.
You can also try keeping a gratitude journal, where you can quickly jot down a list of little joys and things that give you a sense of happiness and contentment. Remind yourself of all the bad you have been through. When you see how far you’ve come and all of the difficult storms you have weathered, it will make you more appreciative of what you have in your life now.

कठिन परिश्रम कभी असफल नहीं होता
अगर कोई व्यक्ति कठिन परिश्रम कर सकता है , तो वह सफल जरूर होगा। वह किसी भी तरह से विफल नहीं हो सकता है। हम जानते हैं कि कठिन काम आसान नहीं है , यह सभी तरह के लोगों के लिए बहुत मुश्किल है। हर पेशे को कड़ी मेहनत की जरूरत होती है। इसके बिना कुछ भी सुधार नहीं हो सकता। इसका मतलब है कि कड़ी मेहनत व्यक्ति को कभी असफल नहीं होने देती। अब मैं एक युवा व्यक्ति की कहानी बता रही हूँ। जिन्होंने कड़ी मेहनत से सफलता प्राप्त की।
उन्होनें अपनी मेहनत की शुरुआत अपने स्कूली जीवन से की। लड़के ने कड़ी मेहनत से हाई - स्कूल में अच्छा परिणाम प्राप्त किया। उन्होंने अध्ययन में बहुत अधिक समय बिताया। कई तरह के काम उन्हें बिना अध्ययन के पूरे करने पड़ते थे। वह अपने परिवार के साथ नहीं रहता था। क्योंकि उनका स्कूल उनके गाँव से बहुत दूर था। इसलिए वह स्कूल के छात्रावास में रहता था। वहाँ पर उसे अपना हर काम स्वयं करना पड़ता था। इसलिए वह ठीक से सो भी नहीं पाता था। इसके बावजूद उसने अपनी कड़ी मेहनत से अच्छे अंक प्राप्त किए। अन्यथा यदि आप कड़ी मेहनत करते है ,तो आपकी प्रतिभा में वृद्धि होगी।
स्कूल की पढाई पूरी होने के बाद में उसे कॉलेज में दाखिला लेना था। परन्तु उसका परिवार गरीब होने के कारण उसकी कॉलेज की फीस भरने में असमर्थ था। उसने अपने लिए नौकरी प्राप्त करके फिर अपनी पढाई और नौकरी दोनों ही कामों में कड़ी मेहनत की। आखिरकार, वह अपने जीवन का लक्ष्य निर्धारित करने सफलता प्राप्त करने में सक्षम हुआ। अब वह एक बहुत बड़े व्यवसायी है। उन्होनें अपनी मेहनत से सब कुछ हासिल किया। अगर वह मेहनत नहीं कर पाता तो उन सफलताओं को कभी हासिल नहीं कर पाता

How to Manage Anger
Anger is an emotion which you have towards something or someone. It helps you to express your negativity to some level until it is in controllable situations.  But, sometimes we see people lose their control in anger and do what they never suppose to do. It hurts others as well as to ourselves. Though it doesn't remain for a  long time but if we are unable to manage it, it will bring more disturbance, spoil relationships and also take away our peace of mind. Sometimes speaking without thinking can make others also angry. 
It is rightly said that in anger, our mouth works faster than our mind. So, the first thing which we have to keep in our mind is think before you speak.  Second thing, whenever we are angry we must think about its result before we act. If we will think about the impacts of doing things in anger, it will help us to have patience. Third, we must have a habit of listening to others and self analyzation. 
Fourth, we must develop patience to handle any situation in life.  Fifth, if you feel extremely angry, leave the place, make yourself busy in something that helps you to get relaxed like singing, painting, drawing, listening to songs, etc. and talk about that thing later in a respectful way. Sixth, we should not talk to  whom we are angry with, keep silence for sometime or leave the place and when you feel relaxed then only talk to the person and sort out the things. Last and the most important thing is forgiveness. We must learn to forgive people, it will automatically make us calm.

SPRING IS BLOOMING AND I AM TAKING OFF WITH THE TUNES

Who among us doesn't have a similar story about a song that touched us?
Whether attending a concert, listening to the radio or singing in the shower about the music that can fill us with emotion.
Someone told me
The moment I create a melody.
The old vibe blow away.
Everything I saw and heard.
Everything I felt.
The world around me took on colours, in a way, I never knew it could.
The whole world began to sparkle.
Music is the series of moments and I love them all. Is that way I sparkle the way I do.
For those moments why I am alive. I was put on this earth to create music and so you were.
Every moment I spend with the music.
It's like a rollercoaster.
Music is the journey with no clear destination inside.
It's like music is the freedom itself.
We're all connected.
Just like the notes are intermittently connected.
It's shared by us all.
Through music, with the people you know, with all the people you don't know, with all the people in this world.
Maybe there's only a dark road up ahead.
But you still have to believe and keep going.
Believe that the music will light your path,
Even a little bit, come on..........
Lets go on a JOURNEY!!

Environment
The development in the field of technology has lead to destruction of environment.
There are three main reasons for the destruction of environment.
1. Pollution: Pollutants are harmful materials released into the environment which causes many of the diseases for e.g. chlorine illness, air borne diseases, skin diseases, etc. Each year 8.4 million people die from this pollution. There are different types of pollution like air pollution, water pollution and noise pollution.
2. Resources depletion: Resources depletion means the consumption of a resource faster than replenished. There are some minerals which are near to end for and future generation may not get to see or use them. For e.g. natural gas, phosphorus and coal.
3. Soil degradation: Soil degradation means there is depletion in soil condition caused by its improper use or poor management. It is caused by the agricultural, industrial or urban purposes.
.
Environment is our world and we must take proper care of it. We need to save environment for our own self and future generation. We can conserve the environment by the following steps:
1. Reduce, reuse and recycle.
2. Save electricity
3. Save water
4. Avoid taking cars when possible.

Sports
Sports are very important in our life. During sport, the body is continuously engaged. Games may require the individual to carry physical activities. Sports and games have a lot of health benefits. The physical training classes that are enjoyed in the schools and colleges are to imbibe on the students a love for sports. Nowadays sports have become a part of our life. There are two types of sports activities- indoor and outdoor. Outdoor sports activities include sports that exercise the body - these sports activities are basketball, cricket, football, tennis, etc. Indoor sports activities include chess, ludo or board games. We have to play at least for half an hour to maintain & keep our body fit.
