Importance of Discipline 
Discipline is one of the most important personality traits in everyone's life. It refers to a set of rules and regulations which are to be followed while undergoing any task or activity. It is a way of being honest, hard-working, motivated, and encouraged while doing any task. 
It is a character trait that helps the individuals to complete the tasks in a given fixed deadline. The role of discipline in our life is to set orderliness, efficiency, punctuality, organization, and focus on our tasks. “Life without discipline is just like a ship without radar.” Therefore the importance of discipline in life just cannot be ignored.

कलम की ताकत 
"कलम तलवार की तुलना में शक्तिशाली है" का अर्थ है कि कलम बेहद शक्तिशाली है आकार में छोटी होने के बावजूद यह उन चीजों को पूरा करने की शक्ति रखती हैं जो एक शक्तिशाली तेज धार वाली तलवार पूरा नहीं कर सकती कलम तलवार से भी अधिक शक्तिशाली है इसका मतलब की लेखन का कार्य हिंसा के कार्य की बजाए लोगों पर अधिक प्रभाव डाल सकती हैं। 
यह कलम अंधकार को मिटाकर प्रकाश उजागर करती है। कलम ऐसे चमत्कार पैदा कर रही है जैसे की लिखित जानकारी ज्ञान के रूप में फैल जाती हैं जो लोगों के जीवन काल के लिए संरक्षित हैं। इतिहास इस बात का प्रमाण है कि लेखकों ने अपने लेखन के माध्यम से दुनिया को बदल दिया है। महात्मा गांधी, जॉन कीट्स, स्वामी विवेकानंद और कई अन्य लोगों ने अपने लेखन के माध्यम से समाज व देश में सुधार किये हैं। लेखक अपने उपदेश और ज्ञान के माध्यम से विभिन्न सामाजिक बुराइयों के खिलाफ लड़ते हैं और समाज में परिवर्तन लाते हैं। यह कलम है जो पुस्तक को शक्तिशाली बनाती है ऐसी पराक्रमी कलम है।
लेखन लोगों को सामाजिक या राष्ट्रीय बुराई के खिलाफ खड़े होने के लिए एकजुट कर सकता है। कलम की शक्ति को इस तथ्य से भी समझा जा सकता है की परीक्षा आदि के दौरान उत्तर पुस्तिका में लिखा गया एक गलत उत्तर हम पर भारी पड़ सकता है। लेखक आने वाली पीढ़ियों के लिए महत्वपूर्ण ज्ञान और जानकारी को कलम बंद कर सके। कलम यह बताती है कि शब्दों में बल से अधिक प्रभावी ढंग से समस्याओं को हल करने की क्षमता है। कलम का जीवन में बहुत महत्व है।

Important Gift For Oneself Is Being Honest 
What do you mean by ‘To be honest to ourselves’?
Why one should be honest to themselves?
Being honest with ourselves is actually a great thing. If we will not be honest to ourselves then how can we expect from others. When we lie to others or if we cheat them then they will not know at that time but we ourselves know the wrong thing done with them. After doing anything wrong if we regret or apologize even then it makes us feel guilty and ashamed. Though we can hide from others but cannot hide anything to ourselves. 
In life, you can cheat others by fooling them but when it comes to cheating yourself, it is quite impossible. You cannot hide anything from yourself, as your inner person will remind you of all your mistakes. We can imbibe many values in us at any age. It is never too late to do anything or anything in life. It is not difficult to say that I am honest or I never lie, but when you try to do that it still makes you feel think. 
“The most important thing is always to be honest with yourself without hesitating about things that matter a lot”

Christmas 
Christmas is a well-known Christian holiday set in December, celebrated the world over and famed for its decorations and Santa Clause. The Christmas means “Feast day of Christ”.It is a yearly celebration marking Jesus Christ’s birth it is observed on the 25th of December as a cultural and religious celebration among a lot of people all over the world. Christmas is celebrated in all Christian countries but there are differences in the way each nation celebrates this date.
Christmas is a cultural festivity that entails a lot of preparations. It is a public holiday and so people get a Christmas break to celebrate it. Preparations for Christmas start early for most people so that celebrations begin on the eve of Christmas. Preparations for Christmas involve a lot of activities. People usually buy decorations, food, and gifts mostly for children in the family and friends. Some families shop for matching Christmas outfits for everyone.
The common preparations include decorations of the place with Christmas trees, lighting. Before decorations begin, the house must be deep cleaned. The Christmas tree brings the Christmas spirit in homes. Presents are placed under the Christmas tree in wrapped gift boxes and are not to be opened until Christmas day. The church is also decorated for the special event.
Christmas reminds us of the importance of giving and sharing with friends and family. Through Christmas, we know that Jesus birth is the beginning of great things in the world. It is generally an opportunity to think about nature and the reason for our existence. Christmas is such a festival which people from all religions and faith celebrate worldwide despite it being a Christian festival. It is the essence of this festival which unites the people so much.

It's never too late 
It is said that there is no age to dream, it takes just a little time to achieve them.
By the age of 15 -17 years, it seems that it is still small, focus on studies. It seems to be 21, think about the career of 30-32, it seems that dreams are being left behind and they are getting 45 years old. Now, there is no age to dream nor to fulfil them.  But the truth is that there is no age to fulfil dreams. Where one more of the example of Barack Obama who retires at the age of 55, while the other is Donald Trump is 70 years old at the age, as he started his term as the President of America, it is most important to have faith in yourself. If we believe in ourselves, then we can fulfil our dreams at any time, just be encouraged yourself that yes I can do it.

Living your Life to the fullest 
Life is very complicated as you all know, it is never same as before or after. Something and something is changing always, the changes are around you, in you, or maybe inside you. Sometimes we also have no answer that the breaks or challenges we are facing are what, why and how the problems are unlimited.  
Sometimes there is no solution and no conclusion. We never think that problems that are arriving in our life are literally our own mistake, we are very close to us only and always blame others, and say I am too far away from me. 
Some people always judge life by luck; all things happen due to good and bad luck of a person and say life has no feeling. If a person dreams or thinks they just say it is our luck. Life is large,  yet so small because we never accept the truth of our life. The things which we are thinking are too small but they are literally so big.
Dreams are colourful and beautiful, but sometimes we become blind when dreams make us sad. Don't disappoint yourself with its tinge of sourness, we must live every moment and feel the edge and don't waste time. I may say life is a lovely road which has no end.  A lovely shore,  a lovely road where each aspect stands. 
Life is what we make and develop. Some people appreciate it, others take it for granted. It depends on you, how you want to be.  Happiness gives great times. Don't give sadness a dime,  enjoy life,  rejoice,  it deserves treatment. Because your existence is in its fulfillment. Make every moment count,  live the present, never think about the past because life just slowly fades away and you just wish you could never let the past go away.

Holidays 
Holidays are necessary for the real enjoyment of life . There would be no pleasure if there were no holidays. Life without holidays will be dull and unbearable. Man cannot go on working without break. He needs rest and change. It is to be remembered that to have no work at all would be equally boring so we know well how to spend our holidays. Holidays give families an opporunity to spend time together and celebrate. The focus for students moves away from schools and onto family and culture. Longer breaks such as the winter holidays allow families an opportunity to reconnect. A study last year by the American Psychological Association conclued that vacation work to reduce stress by removing people from the activities and environment that they associate with stress and anxiety vacations can cut your risk for heart attrack. Holidays are the days when everyone likes to relax and enjoy. It is the time when we get along with our friends and family. Children mostly like to visit hills station during summer vacations to avoid the scorching heat. Holidays are the medium through which children learn to respect their elders when they meet them more often.

Most Appealing Virtue ‐ Honesty 
The most appealing virtue for me is *honesty*. As the saying goes 'Honesty is the best policy', it is the most appealing virtue according to me.Honesty is not just about telling the truth. It's about being real with yourself and others about who you are, what you want and what you need to live your most authentic life. It gives us clarity of thought and simplicity in life. The opposite of honesty is deception — or lying. Lying is equally bad whether you are deceiving others or yourself. When you lie, you degrade yourself into believing what you’re saying. 
Honesty gives us faith, strengthens our will power and represents us in the best way as we are.
Thomas Jefferson rightly said, "Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom." So I have resolved to be honest at all times regardless of my impending fears.

प्यारी माँ 

सबसे अच्छी सबसे न्यारी ।
मेरी माँ है कितनी प्यारी। 
खेल खिलाती, दूध पिलाती।
नये खिलोने मुझे दिलाती।
सबसे अच्छी सबसे न्यारी ।
मेरी माँ है कितनी प्यारी। 
मुझे पकडने कोइ आता,
तो मै गोदी मे छिप जाता ।
रोज सुनाती मुझे कहानी, 
कभी ना करती आनाकानी।
ईस दुनियमे सबसे न्यारी, 
मेरी माँ है कितनी प्यारी।
