 Message from the Principal
Dear Students and Parents, COVID-19 pandemic has altered and disrupted our normal life, this is a collective crisis we all have to fight together. There are innumerable inspiring stories of Corona warriors, doctors, police men and volunteers fighting the pandemic. We too must do our bit to beat this challenging time. We must remain positive and educate people around us for wearing masks, maintaining physical distance and vaccination.
Stay positive, stay strong, be compassionate
Stay home, stay safe; this too shall pass.

Corona Warriors
Two of our staff members have fought bravely to the virus, their piece of advice:
Stay Home, Stay Calm, Stay Informed, keep on the mask and maintain distance if going out. We send our love and best wishes to speedy recovery to a better and healthy life.
Frontline Warrior
Our Parent; an educationist, Ms Veena Solanki; her experience from the ground reality!
“When we go out of our homes for whatever needs, be it buying provisions or for any Frontline duty, there lingers a fear of getting infected. While talking to Covid patients,  one thing that was clear is that there is definitely a need to educate people and pull them out of their ignorance about their health conditions. People are panicking and what is really required is a strong positive will and patience to come out of a grave condition. You have to be really cautious about your body's signals about discomfort and ailment and maintain a very healthy, preventive, curative and promotive regime for your well being.
P.S: When I  come back from office and  have an itchy spot somewhere,  mind starts playing tricks and  starts developing symptoms   that's kind of psychological I guess..

Yoga Enlightenment
The fitness sessions organized by school on weekends are tremendously enriching my everyday life. Abha Ma’am’s yoga has been a breather and changed my perception of yoga. Now instead of understanding it as an intense workout, it's actually an ecstatic, joyful and self-awakening experience. It has certainly helped to firstly wake up early and appreciate the natural morning beauty around. Secondly, it has aroused in me an urge to follow it every day experiencing its benefits like better concentration, activeness and flexibility throughout the day. Hence, I stand here much thankful to the school for introducing us to such a wonderful experience with our friends in such hard to endure times.

Learning Foreign Languages
Today all over the world people are curious to learn foreign languages. It is helpful for getting
a job in various countries. It has enormous opportunities in many fields like service sector, government jobs, translators, foreign embassy etc. Learning foreign languages has become very easy and popular through the internet. People can learn and know about foreign languages in a better way. Besides that some countries like China, Japan are not interested in learning English or any foreign languages. In the era of globalization it is very necessary to learn at least one foreign language. Some most popular foreign languages are French, Spanish, Mandarin, Japanese, Russian etc. In today's world many people are learning foreign languages for different reasons, for job or for exploring more about them.

My Virtual School 
Schools have been shut to prevent the spread of the virus and this has given a way to enhance online classes, a very new concept in India. It is commendable how easily some educational institutions have moved to virtual classrooms, all credit goes to tools such as Google Meet, Zoom, Google Hangouts and Microsoft Teams.
The school is putting extra efforts to engage students in classes by renewing timetables, having discussions online, taking feedback from parents and monitoring students constantly. All students are connected through WhatsApp and Google Classroom in their respective classes. Some students don't have mobile phones. So, they have some challenges to understand the concepts.. Nevertheless they can attend classes/sessions enthusiastically by taking help from their friends and connect together through a single device. The Fabindia School is doing a wonderful job to provide quality education.

I choose to die
If death is only time when the people regret
                        and for the persons Loss they cry
                       then I definitely choose to die
                       If death is the only time
                         when I will get complete rest and peace
                        then I would choose to die
                          so then the soul get rest which is broken into piece
                         If death is only time 
                         when people will remember how they treated me
                        then choose to die
 to secretly see why they cheated me
If death is the only time
When people will accept their mistake
Then I would choose to die
To find out the reason yesterday why they were fake
If death is the only time
When for me my enemies will pray
Then I would choose to die
To hear the good words about me they say
I know during my lifetime I’ll be alone
The one who talked me rudely after dying will change the tone
Then too I choose to die
So that I would be in a peaceful zone.

Humility
Humility means being humble. You respect others and are always down to earth. It is one of the important values which helps us to build our character. When a person is humble, he is loving, caring, helpful, patient towards others while dealing with them. He will always think of others and do what is good for them. He will never be angry with anyone or will never make fun of others or laugh at them. He will be empathetic towards others and will do what is best for them and try to understand others feelings. A humble person will never have an ego problem. He will always remain happy in good or bad situations. 
As educators, it is our duty that we should try to teach students to be humble and teach them its importance. This value will help them to be sensitive towards the society and environment. Thus, it will help to build a good society. He will be a good citizen of our country. This will help him to take the correct decisions in life and be successful. Humility helps us to build different values which are an essential part of life. Each one of us must be humble in our life to lead a better and happy life
