Importance of Self Respect 
Self Respect is a quality which is extremely important for the dignity, confidence and personality of an individual. People with self-respect have the courage of accepting their mistakes. They exhibit a certain toughness, a kind of moral courage, and they display character. Without self-respect, one becomes an unwilling audience of one’s failing both real and imaginary. A self-respecting person accepts responsibilities for one’s own life and its this source from which self respect springs. Such people are always willing to accept risks. They invest something of themselves in what they undertake to do, and when they play, they know the odds. 

Self-respect is a kind of discipline, a habit of the mind that can never fail an individual. Need to remember that respect for ourselves guides our morals, while rasped for others guides our manners for winning the respect of others, we need to respect our own selves first. There are endless potentialities in each of us. Hence we need to believe in our strengths, and we need to repeat! Only when we love ourselves, gain confidence in our abilities believe in them, and when we have a positive, healthy self-image will others respect us.

Better Parenting
“Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.”
Being a parent is tough. Most of us feel like we could do better jobs, but resolving to be more patient rarely works. When children are growing up, positive parenting improves their cognitive, social and problem-solving skills. Positive parenting also affects their responses and helps them grow up to be better humans.

The first step to being a better parent is actually how we treat ourselves, we can only give what we have.  The first and foremost responsibility is mindfulness. Mindfulness means that it brings your conscious attention to our experiences. Awareness allows you to choose your response to what’s happening. We can regulate our emotions by being mindful.
It necessitates considerable parental attention and participation, letting children know you are watching their behaviour, raising the bar in terms of expectations as appropriate, and making clear and fair rules for the children.

Competition Oriented Schooling 
Hello Everyone, once again, I am before you with another relevant issue. I hope this article touches you when you are in the state of good health and spirit. Every time I come before you with a new welfare topic related to students. This time I want to draw the kind attention of educators towards the well being in the career of School students.
In our new education policy, we are very much concerned about the pattern of learning, we are providing to students. There is a lot of impact of the early school days on the career of a child. Whatever he or she learns in the school remains with him/ her till the achievement of a career.
Therefore it is of utmost importance that we give our students something efficient, very relevant and very much related to to the trending skills/requirements of the job.
Balancing between board exams and competitions
Some exams student can prepare in and after  10th are:-
National talent search Exam
Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana
Olympiad
NEET(MEDICAL CAREER)
IIT JEE & ADVANCED( ENGINEERING CAREER)
SSC EXAMS ( GOVT.JOBS)
OTHERS
One of the several issues is competition exams which a student faces after schooling in the years of graduation to get a job. 
If a student is provided with the exact information on the career options by the school faculty then mostly the students make up their mind to go in a particular stream as per their knowledge, skill, interest and aspirations.
After the information on career options, faculty members should guide the students toward the syllabus and requirements different career options. It means which exam will lead to his desired career.
Then information of the syllabus good books, study material and guidance (what to study and how much is to study) is needed to be given to students.
We should tell them how much of the current curriculum will contribute to the competitive exam. It will raise the awareness of student and will give him the motive of studying current class syllabus.
Teachers should share some interviews of toppers of competition exams, revealing their strategy to get success.
We should guide students about how to maintain a perfect balance between class curriculum and competitive syllabus.
More emphasis should be given to multiple-choice questions, and one-word answers as it is the inherent pattern in all competitive exams.
Reference books should be included while covering the NCERT curriculum. Teachers should sort out topics common to both board exams and competitions and focus more on them.
Emphasis should be given on both speed and accuracy of the students in answering the questions.
The occasional test may be planned on the pattern based on career exams.
Orienting the students towards the pattern of career exams has become the need of the hour.
Thank you.

VALUE OF WORDS 
Words can be impressive and expressive.
Words can destroy a relationship.
Words can make rivals and friends too.
A word said cannot be taken back.
Words can make someone love and also hate.
Words have a strong impact on humans.
Words can work on feelings and emotions.
So check your words before using them,
Because you are saying it to a person like yourself,
Who has a brain that functions and heart that feels?

Expected Post Covid Experiences
From past eight months we are fighting an unknown virus in every possible way may it be by being a part of work from home policy, online classes, following guidelines issued by WHO or immensely working hard to create a vaccine. We all are playing our parts to make a healthy and Fearless world again. and with passing time it seems that our patience will be rewarded soon, but will everything be normal again after the end of this pandemic? This is the most common question that strikes our mind. And seems that we will be back to our normal lives but with some major changes. The possible changes can take place in the education system to cover the loss of time, in administration system to fulfill sudden large number of demands, new public health protocols can be formed to prevent another calamity like this, workers will take time to adjust in their work places and different fields will witness new evolutions but lastly we can hope and wait for the best because time requires change to support growth.

मित्रता
दोस्ती हमारे जीवन की एक अनमोल संपत्ति होती है | जिसे कोई भी खोना नहीं चाहता है |एक दोस्त हमारे लिए बहुत मायने रखता है | सच्चा दोस्त वही होता है, जो जीवन की हर मुश्किल में साथ निभाता है | जिंदगी में एक सच्चा और अच्छा मित्र बहुत मुश्किल से मिलता है | सच्ची दोस्ती हमें जिंदगी में कई प्रकार के यादगार और मीठे अनुभव देती हैं | सभी लोगों को अपने जीवन की खुशी और दुख जैसी भावनाओं को बताने के लिए एक साथी की जरूरत होती है जिसे   वह अपने मन की बात को बता सकें | लोगों की बड़ी भीड़ में एक अच्छे और सच्चे मित्र को ढूंढना उतना ही मुश्किल होता है जितना कि कोयले की खान से हीरा ढूंढना |  सच्चा दोस्त वह नहीं होता जो कि खुशी के पलों में हमारा साथ दें बल्कि वह होते हैं जो हमारी जिंदगी की सभी मुश्किलों में हमारा साथ दें चाहे वह खुशी के पल हो या गम के |
धन्यवाद !

Board's Tension
The boards are the most probably tension around students. To handle it we ourselves have to work. I can give you a guide which, you can use. 

Using Time Management Technique - Student life teaches you to balance studies and other activities. In order to do well in studies, you have to devote considerable time and this is not possible unless you plan in advance and schedule time for your studies. Trial and error will soon lead you to a method that works for you. 

Create a Study Environment- Find a place which is quite and free from distraction, segregate a place which you will use only for studying. Choosing a place like the bed usually does not help as you might fall asleep even if you don't want to. A study desk with proper lighting and seating arrangement works for most of the students. Use the reward technique to set the mood. 

Sleep Well- Many students think that studying overnight helps every time. Although such an arrangement might help sometimes, but doing it regularly will disturb the sleep cycle and consequently the student's health. The routine will end up making the student feeling stressed and frustrated not only in schoolwork but in other activities too. 

Boards are getting near, these are some ideas which can help students to score more and it can also help students that are not in boards. The tips are about time management, sleep well and create a study environment. 

Thank you

World Cancer Day
World Cancer Day is celebrated all over the world to raise awareness about the causes, symptoms, treatment, and precautions. This day is celebrated on 4th of February every year while National Cancer Day is celebrated on 7th November. It was first recommended and organized by the Union for international Cancer Control (UICC) to encourage and support the World Cancer declaration goals, which were written in 2008. The primary goal of celebrating this day is to reduce illness and deaths caused by this disease.

The people who suffer from this painful disease are sometimes ignored by their loved ones because sometimes other people think that diseased person can also be harmful for others. But, it is not a good practice. 
The suffering person needs the care and love of others to recover from this disease. Chemotherapy is a very painful procedure so the suffering individual needs support and love so that he can develop will power to fight with this disease. On world cancer day, events and walks are arranged to raise awareness about this disease and how to prevent one? When people know about the causes, symptoms, and treatment, then they can better handle this disease. It is aimed to eradicate this disease from the world till 2020.
All of us should take the responsibility to spread the awareness about this disease to prevent others.

Think for Introverts  
When you hear the term "introvert” you might imagine someone who's quiet and insular, who likes to spend most of their time alone, avoiding social situations. 
But being an introvert isn't really anything to do with how much you like spending time with other people. Introverted people always show their fake identity to all. 
In fact, introverts can have some of the deepest and most meaningful friendships but these kinds of people require a true friend who understands them and is able to come out from the introverted nature of them.
This type of a person doesn't want to express their life to other people, they always want to be alone all the time, they are of shy nature. Their introvertness doesn’t let them move forward in life they are living. They spent their life thinking about past and the coming future; they are not able to think about their present because they are more curious about its result without doing any kind of hard work. They need someone in life to help them out throughout their condition and help them to face their present to live life in whatever way it is and always try to work hard to make it better.

Women Empowerment
Women empowerment is the most critical thing that we should support. It means when women have a right to make decisions for them. In ancient times, women didn't have right to do what they wanted to do. The men always had all the rights. The women didn’t have any of these rights, even to say anything in family matters. Things started changing when they realized that they also needed equal rights as men. This realization brought along the change in the life of women demanding their rights.
India is one of the countries which are not safe for women. Also it is always felt that women are not safe when they are outside especially when they are alone. For decades people felt that women cannot go outside to do a job or study. They thought that after marriage they had no right to go out of the home.
One of the other problems that women have to face is that of illiteracy. If they are educated then they will know that can fight for their rights and live a happy life. Women’s empowerment is essential because women didn’t have the rights and freedoms for decades at all. The women were almost non-existent. Women are humans, too, and they too have feelings and wishes and need to have the same rights and freedoms as their life partners.
