Joy of Reading
In today's world, where Technology has made heavy demands on children's time, it is tough to communicate with them. So on the occasion of Children's Day, an online book reading programme has been launched, "Joy of Reading" by My Good School to build reading interest among our students and extend communication with them. At this prestigious moment, many students attended the session to inculcate reading habits and life lessons. We believe that reading books helps us to excel in every field. Books are full of stories, knowledge, experiences, values and many more. The session was led by our Chairman, Mr Sandeep Dutt. We started with Dr Anupam Sibal's life lessons, reading the first chapter, ' Humility' from 'Is Your Child Ready To Face The World'. We read the chapter, understood the value of this virtue and learnt the importance of it in our life. We are assigned tasks where we would be dealing with situations that will help us to enhance humility. I sincerely thank My Good School Team, our respected Chairman, Principal Ma'am, teachers and parents for their efforts. Your initiatives for helping students build life skills are indeed profoundly appreciated.

Some food/Table Etiquette across the world
1. Don't use forks in Thailand.  
We can't use forks to put food in our mouths.
2. Don't clean your plate in China.
As empty plates indicate, the host hasn't served enough.
3. Be ready to share a plate in Ethiopia.
There is a standard plate for everyone in the centre of the table.
4. In Italy, you will insult the chef if you ask for extra cheese.
5. Don't ask for pepper and salt in Portugal. As it is considered, the chef hasn't made the dish perfectly.
6. Don't put your chopsticks vertically up in Japan. As this is done at times of funeral.
7. Don't touch food with your left hand in India because your left hand is considered dirty and kept away from food.
8. Don't just sip on your wine in Georgia. We should start drinking it after a story is narrated.
9. In Korea, if an older person offers you a drink, lift your glass to receive it with both hands, which is a sign of respect to our elders.
10. In Afghanistan, when bread is dropped on the floor, it's lifted and kissed.
11. In Chile, you never eat food by hand. Touching food is considered a bad habit.
12. Don't eat your bread before your food in France. Bread is used as a utensil.
13. If your host in Kazakhstan serves you a cup of tea that is only half full, don't feel bad. It is a good sign, unlike a full cup of tea that is seen as a sign that the host might want you to leave.
14. Eat with your hands in Mexico. In Mexico, it is considered an almost snobby practice to use a fork and knife.
15. Don't bring yellow flowers to dinner.
In Bulgaria, yellow flowers symbolize hatred in the country

Trust
Trust, in simple terms, is faith in another person, despite a lack of an assured outcome. One characteristic that makes trust unique is its fragility. To gain the confidence of parents or friends, one must continuously prove one's honesty and reliability. Among all my friends, I trust only Sanyogita because she always motivates me and helps me in any kind of situation. Due to my financial problem, I couldn't join all online classes, and my work was also incomplete. I asked all my friends to help me, but not even a single friend could help me. I was pretty disappointed. Then Sanyogita, my classmate, came and told me not to get upset and said she would help me with all my work. That act of Sanyogita made me feel happy and proud that at least there was someone who helped me in my time of need. I realized that living in the world these days is hard because people are no longer honest and helpful. Being dishonest always causes problems that can lead to someone getting offered. It seems that there is someone who can help you in everyday life and someone who kills you by their words and nature. I think every person should help others. They should understand each other's problems, their situation, their feelings and show empathy towards others. We can only trust a person when someone understands us. As Sanyogita understood my problem, now I can easily trust her. At last, I would like to sum it up by quoting that 'A friend in need is a friend indeed.'

Happiness 
Happiness is a feeling which each and everyone experiences in his or her life. There are different ways in which we get happiness. We experience a lot of happiness by living in a joint family because there the whole family lives together.  Going to someone's wedding or someone in the family is getting married. We enjoy it, we have fun, we get happiness in that.  School trips, family trips, friends trips and going for picnics, we are very happy in those moments because we enjoy ourselves a lot during that time.  On someone's birth and performing functions, playing with the newborn baby gives us immense joy. The joy we used to get when we were little ones, like playing with toys, going out, having fun, falling in love, going to school for the first time, meeting new friends, and seeing a place for the first time or whatever we did which no one has ever done also make us happy. Fighting with brother, teasing him, having fun with him, taking small things from him.  Eating food with mother's hands or playing with father, is happiness or it is small happiness in which we get a lot of happiness.

Children's Day
Children's Day is celebrated on 14th November every year in India. It is the birth anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru. Our first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru had a great love for children. Children's Day is celebrated with great joy in several places but besides this, we should know the real meaning of Children's Day. This day creates awareness and authorizes the children about their rights, care, and education. 
Children's Day is celebrated to honour children globally aiming at protecting them from working long hours in dangerous circumstances and allowing access to the rightfulness of education. The cultural programmes, events and activities especially held for children are the main attraction of Children's day. As Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru said, "The children of today will make the India of tomorrow. The way we bring them up will determine the future of the country." Children's day is a beautiful occasion to remember and celebrate the famous thoughts of Chacha Nehru. Celebration on Children's day is a great way to make both children and adults aware that children are the true future of the country. Therefore everyone should understand the responsibility towards providing a fulfilled childhood to every child. The love and care that we give to children today, taking no notice of their social and economic status, will be the fate of our country tomorrow. Children's day celebration is a tribute to this thought.

Modernization 
Hello everyone, today I am going to talk to you about modernization,  or we can say modernity. It means the current situation in which people are living together is like an upgrade in the lives of people surrounding the environment, culture, politics, social and the environment around us. The very greatest modernity in today's world is technology up-gradation. Modernization brings Technology that makes all work effective and efficient. This is a positive effect but there is also a negative effect of modernization. It leads to such things as air pollution and climate change and also breaks the social ties that make people together in traditional societies. Technology modernity like application, machine, infrastructure, robotics, transportation, energy and devices that are more effective.  Another particular feature of modernity is the rise in the human beach which steadily raises living standards and a transformation of the material condition of life. Somehow there are also positive and negative effects of modernization. 
Thank you
