Fish Tank
This is a fish tank. We can see many fish swimming in the water. There are small green plants inside the water. There are many other water animals such as octopus, starfish and snails. I see many small pebbles at the bottom of the fish tank. I love watching these colourful fish and other water animals.

Butterfly
The butterfly is a pretty little insect. It flutters around the flowers. There are thousands of kinds of butterflies. It has very beautiful wings. Its wings are of bright colours like yellow, purple, red, etc. A butterfly is normally a day-flying insect belonging to the order of Lepidoptera and grouped in suborder Rhopalocera. These insects are closely related to moths, from which they grow. The discovery of moths dates back to 200 million years ago.
Now, the life of a butterfly is closely related to flowering plants that their larvae feed on, and their adult feed and lay eggs. These butterflies have a long history of co-evolution with flowering plants; many of the details of plant anatomy are related to their pollination. Butterflies are intelligent, like ants. Butterfly's life is short. My favourite insect is the butterfly.

My Country India
The name of my country is India. It is also known as the country of festivals. There are 28 states and 9 union territories. All types of religions are practiced in India. Hindi is the most common language in India. All states have different cultures, food, clothes but all have unity in them. Famous places to visit here are Ooty , Jammu and Kashmir, Kanyakumari, Rajasthan and many more. Tourists often come here to visit several monuments like Taj Mahal at Agra,  Qutub Minar at Delhi, Statue of Unity at Gujrat made in the memory of Sardar Valabbhai Patel also known as Iron Man. In ancient times, it was known as the golden bird. It is a democratic country. Here we can see different types of weather in different places in India like Ladakh and Leh experience temperatures as low as -40°C during winter where the temperature at Chennai may hover around 20°C to 25°C on the same day. At last I would say that I love my country because we all have unity and no discrimination.

APPRECIATION
Appreciation means to recognize someone's good qualities. If you are able to acknowledge someone's good qualities, then you should appreciate them for that. Now you would think about it that, appreciating anyone does not matter that much. But it's totally wrong because all those who are trying new things, need your admiration the most. If we give value to their thoughts, then more desire will increase in their mind towards that work. For example, as I am making sketches, painting, portraits, etc. I am getting so much praise and appreciation from people and that's why it encourages me to perform much better. I would like to share a poem which was composed by me to thank all those people who appreciated me.
Thanks to those who hated me, 
You made me stronger.
Thanks to those who loved me,
You made me go further.
Thanks to those who stayed with me,
You showed me true friendship.
Thanks to those who encouraged me,
You made me feel like I was worth it.

Women Empowerment
Women's empowerment is the process of empowering women. It may be defined in several ways, including accepting women's viewpoints or making an effort to seek them, raising the status of women through education, awareness, literacy, and training.
Women empowerment is one of the most critical and essential things that everyone should support. It is when women are given the most power and right to make decisions for themselves. Women have been subjected to injustice through decades. They have been treated as non-existent for decades. The men always had all the rights. However, the women didn’t have any of these rights, even a small right like voting. Things changed when women realized that they too, needed equal rights. This brought along the revolution by the women demanding their rights. It spreads the awareness that gender shouldn’t be the reason for things to go in their favor.
Countries all over the world called themselves ”progressive countries” but every one of them has a history of ill-treating women. Women in these countries had to fight against the systems to get the freedom and status that they have achieved today. However, in India, women’s empowerment is still lagging. There is more awareness that needs to be created for the awareness to spread.
Women's empowerment are divided into five types:
1) Social: Social empowerment might be one of the most prominent forms of empowerment shown in the mainstream media. It strengthens women’s social relations and their positions in social structures, giving them more of a purpose outside of the home.
2)Educational: Education is a crucial part of growing and developing, but there are still places in the world that deny education to girls.
3)Economic: People say money can’t buy happiness, but being at an economic disadvantage can take away access to becoming empowered.
4)Political: The political involvement of women “implies the decentralization of power and authority in the deprived, oppressed, and powerless people who have not been able to participate in the decision-making process and the implementation of policies and programs of both government and organizations as well as familial and societal matters."
5) Psychological
Psychological empowerment aligns with social empowerment—it transgresses the “traditional and patriarchal taboos and social obligations” and lets women go beyond what’s expected of them in society. This can build self-confidence, help women recognize their self-worth, and give them the chance to take control of their income and body.

Appreciation
How often have you stopped to smell the roses and by the way, the saying refers to living in the present and is not all about smelling the roses next to you on the table? It is important that we each appreciate the current moment and even make a list of things that we are thankful for. Of course, you could question why but the fact remains that most of us have this tendency to take our loved ones, including our current circumstances for granted. The one lesson that none of us ever seem to learn until it is too late is that nothing is permanent in life. Our loved ones, from our parents, our grandparents, our teachers, to siblings, will not always be around to help us out in our time of need.
This is why it is important to appreciate all the big and small things in our lives; after all, showing our appreciation to the ones that we love only serves to validate that emotion and should help strengthen it further.  It is the little things that matter a lot, so you just need to take a moment to sit down, do some introspection, write a list of all the things that you are thankful for and start showing your appreciation for the same. Moreover, appreciating the finer things in your life should serve to highlight the fact that you are indeed lucky in more ways than one. You could tell your mother how lucky you are that she is still around, and tell her that you love her. That should definitely make her day. Appreciation is all about appreciating the people around you and your very act of expressing affection should serve to validate your relationship and take it to a whole new level.
Doing so should start a cascading motion as you become more of an optimist. When you are expressing your appreciation to your loved one, keep it short and natural; all that your loved one wants to hear is what you feel deep in your heart.  The value of an honest appreciative action can go a long way in cementing any relationship, even one that is fraught with all the usual fights and hostilities. Just remember to keep the message direct, to the point; no one wants to hear a long-winded appreciation message so keep it short. And even get them a few things just to show your appreciation, and remember that all they wants to know is what is deep inside your heart.

Never Give Up Hope
Hope is a rope which is a lifeline for everyone. It is a ray of light when a person is in darkness. Hope makes us believe that nothing is impossible in this world. If you have faith in yourself and you are ready to work hard then you can achieve success to complete the impossible task. Hope gives us wings to  fulfill our dreams and help us to create a path to achieve our goals. 
As Educators, we must inculcate this value of hope in our children. Life is very unpredictable and sometimes we will face failure. So hope is the only thing which will help us to move on and restart our task again. We can give examples of great personalities like Albert Einstein, Charlie Chaplin, Walt Disney, etc who didn't achieve success in one go. They faced many failures and then got success. If we will tell them their stories then children will understand the importance of hope in our life.
I would like to give a real life example. My aunt was diagnosed with cancer. All family members were worried and upset. My aunt was sad and she gave up hope to live. But then seeing her children she decided to go through the treatment and fight with cancer as her children needed her. So she took the treatment. Though it was painful, she was successful in defeating cancer. She was cancer free and now is with her family safe and healthy. 
I would like to end with the quote "Hope is such an energy by which any dark part of life can be illuminated". So let's carry "Hope" with ourselves.
