Importance of Self Confidence
Self-Confidence allows us to face our failure and own up to it in a positive light.  This helps instill a quality in use which ensures we do not give up till we succeed. Similarly, self-confidence instills optimism in us. People who have self-confidence are not lucky, they are smart. They do not rely on others to achieve success, they rely on their own abilities to do that. While self-confidence is important, it is also important  not to become overconfident. As we know, anything in excess can be bad for us. Similarly, overconfidence is also no exception. When you become overconfident, you do not acknowledge the criticism. When you don’t do that, you do not work on yourself. Thus, it stops your growth. Overlooking all this will prove to be harmful. So it is essential to have moderation which can let you attain just the right amount of self-confidence and self-love which will assure you success and happiness in life.

My Aim
Every person must set an aim in their life to make it meaningful . If you want successful life  or if you want to do something  in your  life then you just need aim. The aim  is very important in life because the aimless person has nothing to do in their life. Generally we choose the aim by our inspiration . When we choose our aim, our parents, teachers and relatives help to achieve it. Sometimes we choose the wrong aim and life become  difficult. So when we choose our aim we must  think very deeply. My aim is to become a doctor so I read books about human body parts and function, and I watch videos on YouTube about how the body functions. First I  prepare the plan, than study accordingly ,so while choosing the aim you should know that how will you achieve that.

मेरा प्रिय खेल कबड्डी
कबड्डी एक शारीरिक खेल है ।यह एक आउटडोर खेल है ।कबड्डी प्राचीन खेल है ,कबड्डी हमारे देश का पारंपरिक खेल है । इस खेल को खेलने से हमारा शरीर स्वस्थ रहता है । यह खेल देश के अलग-अलग क्षेत्रों में खेला जाता है। इस खेल को दो टीमें खेलती है। इस खेल में प्रत्येक टीम में सात खिलाड़ी होते हैं । इस खेल को खेलते समय कभी-कभी चोट भी लग जाती है । देश का सबसे प्राचीन और बहुत प्रसिद्ध खेल है कबड्डी ।कबड्डी को खेलने के लिए बड़े मैदान की जरूरत नहीं पड़ती है । इस खेल को खेलने के लिए किसी चीज की आवश्यकता नहीं होती। जैसे बल्ला ,गेंद ,इत्यादि कबड्डी का मैदान साढ़े 12 मीटर लंबा तथा  10 मीटर चौड़ा होता है । आज के दौर में जैसे लोग पूरे दिन मोबाइल में लगे रहते हैं उनके लिए ऐसे खेल खेलना आवश्यक हो गया है। क्योंकि मोबाइल से अल्ट्रावॉयलेट रेडिएशन निकलती हैं, जो दिमाग के लिए बहुत हानिकारक होती है । लेकिन वही कबड्डी जैसे खेल हम लोग बिना किसी  हानि के खेल सकते हैं । इसे ग्रामीण क्षेत्र के लोग भी खेल सकते हैं , क्योंकि  इसमें पैसे की जरूरत नहीं होती। इसे खेलने से हम स्वस्थ रहते हैं। धन्यवाद

आशा अमर धन
सच ही कहा गया है कि आशा अमर धन है।  व्यक्ति जब निराश हो जाता है तब कुछ भी करने की इच्छा नहीं रहती।  यदि इसीप्रकार निठल्ला बैठ जाएगा तो प्रगति का चक्र ही रुक जाएगा।  निराशा का भाव मन में जगते देर नहीं लगती।  ऐसे अवसर तो जैसे तैयार ही बैठे है।  जब कुछ करने की चाह हो और उसमें असफलता मिले तो निराश हो सकते है।  उचित सहयोग न मिले तो निराश हो सकते है।  अर्थात निराश होने के कई बहाने है।  
जीवन में उम्मीद होना बहुत आवश्यक है। ऐसे जीवन का कोई प्रयोजन नहीं जो निराशा से घिरा हो। आगे बढ़ने के लिए यह आवश्यक है कि मन में आशा की किरण जगाए रखें।  किसी कवि की कविता कहती है -
निराशा के दीप बुझाकर,
आशाओं के दीप जलाएँ,
दसों दिशा में फैले तम को,
मिलकर कोसों दूर भगाएँ  
हमें सकारात्मक सोच रखनी चाहिए, कठिन और सुखद दिन तो आते रहते हैं।  निराशा व्यक्ति को पतन की और ले जाती है जबकि आशा एक नई शक्ति का संचार करती है।  परोपकार करने से आशा बलवती होती है।  अपने सामर्थ्य के अनुसार सेवा कार्य अवश्य करें। 
आशा जीवन का मार्ग प्रशस्त करती है।  प्रसन्नचित मन और सकारात्मक सोच रखने वाले व्यक्ति को कभी बीमारियाँ नहीं घेरती। जीवन में लक्ष्य प्राप्ति करनी है तो आशावादी बने रहो, चाहे असफलता मिले किसी काम में, फिर भी आशा  दामन न छोड़ो।  राष्ट्रकवि  मैथिलीशरण गुप्त के शब्दों में -
समझो धिक् निष्क्रिय जीवन को
नर हो, न निराश करो मन को
कुछ काम करो, कुछ काम करो।

मेरे सपनों का भारत 
मेरे सपनों के भारत में महिला सशक्तिकरण को मैं बढ़ावा देना चाहता हूं जहां पर महिलाएं अपने दम पर आगे बढ़ती रहें वह आत्मनिर्भर हो सके I परंतु वर्तमान के समय बहुत से क्षेत्रों में महिलाओं की भागीदारी पुरुषों से कम है और मेरे सपनों के भारत में  इसे बदलते देखना चाहता हूं I मैं चाहता हूं कि महिलाओं को आगे आना चाहिए तभी तो हमारा भारत एक विकसित राष्ट्र के रूप में माना जाएगा I और यह तभी संभव है जब पुरुष और महिलाएं कंधे से कंधे मिलाकर चलेंगे I हम कहते जरूर है कि बच्चे हमारे देश का भविष्य है परंतु भारत में आज भी कई से क्षेत्रों में  शिक्षा को इतना महत्वपूर्ण नहीं माना जाता है क्योंकि वह सोचते हैं कि बच्चे पढ़ लिखकर क्या कर लेंगे अगर काम करेंगे तो रोजी-रोटी कमा पाएंगे I परंतु मैं इस विचार में बिल्कुल सहमत नहीं हूं मैं अपने सपनों के भारत में आशा करता हूं कि शिक्षा का प्रीतिकोप भारी रहे तथा सभी को शिक्षित होने का अवसर मिले I और इसके साथ-साथ स्वास्थ्य सुविधाओं का लाभ मिलना चाहिए ताकि हमारा भारत स्वास्थ्य शिक्षित हो सके I किसी भी तरह का भ्रष्टाचार नहीं हो, अपराध दर बिल्कुल शून्य हो जाए ताकि देश की दिशा बदल सके I मेरे सपनों के भारत में चोर, अपराधी, खूनी ,बलात्कारियों आदि के लिए बिल्कुल भी जगह नहीं है I मैं चाहता हूं कि अपराध दर में गिरावट हो व चारों तरफ शांति का वातावरण होना चाहिए I तकनीकी विकास के क्षेत्र में मैं अपने सपनों के भारत को आत्मनिर्भर देखना चाहता हूं हमारे देश में कहीं महापुरुष है जिनकी सहायता से हम विकास कर सकते हैं I हमें किसी पर निर्भर होने की आवश्यकता ना पड़े ऐसा विचार करता हूं I तकनीकी विकास पर बात चल ही रही है तो हमारे भाई किसान  क्यों पीछे रहेंगे I उन्हें सभी टेक्नोलॉजी का ज्ञान  मिलने का अवसर देना चाहिए  I उन्हें कोई जरूरत नहीं है कि वे  सरकार पर रोजगार के लिए निर्भर रहे I आखिर में एक विषय की चर्चा और मैं करना चाहूंगा कि हम अक्सर चलते फिरते रास्तों पर गंदा कचरा फेंक देते हैं, अगर हम इसी प्रकार पूरे देश में कचरा फैलाते रहे तो एक दिन हमारे  देश से खुशबू का पता किताब से फट जाएगा और हमारा देश बदसूरत व बदबूदार बन जाएगा I मेरे सपनों के भारत में मैं यही आशा करता हूं या मैं स्वयं पूरा प्रयास करूंगा कि मेरा देश किसी भी क्षेत्र में पीछे तथा निर्भर ना रहे I मेरा देश सदा स्वच्छ एवं सुंदर रहे ,खूब तरक्की करें, एक दूसरे को प्यार बांटे, खुशी से मिलजुल कर रहे I

मीठी वाणी
जिह्वा सभी को मिलती है किन्तु बोलना सिर्फ मनुष्य के लिए संभव है। मनुष्य की सफलता में जहॉं अनेक बातों का महत्व है वहॉं मधुर भाषण, मीठी बोली का भी स्थान है। अपने मधुर व्यवहार तथा मीठी बोली से हम दूसरों के हृदय को आसानी से जीत सकते हैं। उनसे अपनी इच्छा अनुसार काम करवा सकते हैं। मधुरता के कारण ही कोयल को सबसे प्यार मिलता है। मीठा बोलने से मन को शांति मिलती है, सुनने वाले का मन भी प्रसन्न हो जाता है। मीठी बोली बोलने के साथ अप्रिय तथा असत्य वचन नहीं बोलने चाहिए। बोली से मनुष्य के व्यक्तित्व की भी पहचान होती है। मीठी वाणी बोलने वालों के स्वागत के लिए संसार में चारों तरफ अमीर-गरीब, अपरिचित-परिचित सबके द्वार खुले रहते हैं। इसलिए हमें हमेशा मीठी वाणी बोलनी चाहिए। कबीर दास कहते हैं-
ऐसी वाणी बोलिए, मन का आपा खोये।
औरन को शीतल करे, आपहुं शीतल होए।।

Yes, I had been in great difficulty. In the ninth grade I was troubled with a few science problems. The next morning was the exam paper and I couldn't understand a few concepts and problems related to that. I asked my friends to help me out but they themselves were preparing for the exam so they couldn't help me. I was in tension; for I knew if I couldn't score in this paper, my combined marks for all subjects would come down. During the night, one of my father's friends visited us  and my father told him that I was encountering problems in the subject and requested him to solve my queries. Surprisingly, he was a professor in the college who taught Science. I was overjoyed with this revelation. He answered my doubts patiently and helped me solve the problems. The next day I took the exam and it went very well. I think this was nothing less than a miracle and God came to my rescue in such a difficult time.

The Supernatural Power Of God
Yes, I believe that there is a supernatural power God in this world. Whenever we are in any difficult situation, we always pray to God to save us. It has happened with me many times whenever I have been in any difficult situation, I have always prayed to God to save me. One incident I remember was when I went with my family to Shimla for the winter vacation trip. We all were enjoying it very much. Weather was very pleasant. All the mountains were like white carpet of snow. Everything was going fabulously. But when we reached Kufri, it was an adventure camp. We decided to do horse riding. I got the slowest horse. Everyone had gone far and I was left behind. My horse took a wrong turn. The horse master was also not there. It was a very narrow way and there were ditches all around. I was scared, my horse was walking at the edge of the lane and there was a ditch below. That was a difficult situation for me. I prayed to God to save me. My horse lost its balance and I fell into that ditch. I closed my eyes, I was taking god's name. I felt that I would die now, but it was a miracle that when I fell I grabbed the branch of a tree and stood straight on the ground. It was a deep ditch, a lot of big stones were there, but I wasn’t injured. It was like a miracle, as where I fell only sand was there. And I was saved. It was like God had saved me that day.

My Mother
She’s the only one who understands me very well like no one can. My mother is everything for me. God cannot be everywhere so he created a mother. She always supports me when I’m right . No one Stands for me but my mother always. When she is not at home, I feel the absence of her, I miss her a lot, that care, that love and every thing for me she does. When I am sick she cares a lot. She sits with me the whole night. She is the best motivator. I can share my problems with her. When I am sad without telling her about the reason she understands everything. She shows me the right path. Falls on seventh April. Whatever I do wrong, she guides me. She wakes up early in the morning and makes food for me, packs my lunch box et cetera. She makes very delicious food and dishes for me. When she brings something for me like a new dress that time I become very jubilant. Usually my mother wears a sari but when she wears jeans and a top she literally looks very very beautiful and looks like she’s not even married. My clothes with her. She likes green vegetables. She likes to eat Pani Puri, and the things I like. She always gives me courage. When I score good marks ,she gets very happy .I love her a lot. She is more beautiful than anyone. I literally enjoy making videos or reels with her. She makes me laugh. She’s the most trusted one. Words are not enough to explain her. I just love her. I love spending time with her. She is very hard-working.

 घरेलू जानवर हैl इसके पैर गद्ददीदार  होतेहैं। जिसके कारण रेत में नहीं  फसते हैं ,इसीलिए ऊंट को रेगिस्तानका जहाज कहा जाता है। इसकी गर्दन  और पीठ ऊंची होती है। यह हिलते डुलते चलता है। यह रेगिस्तान में वजन उठाने और सवारी के काम आता है। यह बहुत दिनों तक बिना पानी व खाने के बिना रह सकता है।

हमारे  जीवन  में  मेहनत  करना  ही हमारा  लक्ष्य  है। फल  हमारी  मेहनत  से ही  मिलता  है । जैसे  बचपन  में  हम   धीरे  धीरे चलाना  सीखते हैं। फिर  हमारे विद्यालय  का  पहला  दिन  उस   दिन  से  हम  हमारे  लक्ष्य  के  लिए  मेहनत  करना  शुरू कर  देते  है ।हमें हमारे  लक्ष्य को प्राप्त करने  के  लिए  मेहनत  करनी पड़ती  है।  यह जरूरी  है  कि  मेहनत  से  ही  सफलता  मिलती है। जीवन में  मेहनत करना बहुत जरूरी है। मेहनत   का फल देर से तो मिलता हैं ,परंतु मेहनत का फल मीठा होता  है।मेहनत करने वाला इंसान बड़ी से बड़ी मुश्किल पर काबू पा सकता है। ढृंढ निश्चय करके मेहनत करने वाले व्यक्ति सदैव ही असफलताओं को पीछे धकेल कर जीत हासिल कर लेते हैं।

The world we live in today has been through a lot of things from World Wars to epidemics, but one thing which remained constant throughout is kindness. Moreover, it is the spirit to fight back and help out each other. Kindness towards nature, animals, and other people can transform the world and make it a beautiful living place. Kindness is being polite, compassionate, and thoughtful. Every religion and faith teaches its follower to be kind. One must not see kindness as a core value but as a fundamental behavioral element. When you are kind to your loved ones, you create a stable base. As people are becoming more self-centered today, we must learn kindness. We must try to integrate it into ourselves. You might not know how a small act of kindness can bring about a change in someone's life. Always remember, it does not cost anything to be kind. It may be a little compliment or it can be a grand gesture, no matter how big or small, time always matters. So, try your best to be kind to everyone around you.

Best friend is a term used for a person whom we can trust and with whom we can share all our problems in hope that they will never betray us. 
Friends are those whom we know and who have good relations with us but a best friend is indeed like our family member. We can talk to them for hours without being bored or being judged. Finding a good friend in today's world is very difficult. We all want someone by our side who can lend us their shoulder in our hard times. Best friends are like a medicine who can heal everything. We have a special and strong bond with our best friends. We all have that one friend in our life who will act as if he/she doesn't care about you but deep inside he/she really does. They might sometimes argue with you or not talk to you but it doesn't mean that they don't care for you. No matter what the situation is, they will always protect you and care for you. If you have a best friend then never let him/her go because you are incomplete without them. Thank You!

Recently, books have became my best friend. I spend most of my time in reading novels. I have adapted a habit of reading books while going home from school which I borrow from my school's library because it has a great collection of books. I also like to read e-books because I think that e-books are better than paper books as they are easily available, affordable and don't get damaged or lost unlike paper books. There is an app which I recently found named 'Wattpad' on which a lot of aspirant writers post their own work in forms of e-books. I spend a lot of time on reading those books because that app shows that a lot of people try so hard to pursue their dreams and as a responsible reader, it is my responsibility to praise and support their work. Apart from that, I have started reading a novel series titled 'Percy Jackson & The Olympians' which has 5 parts and is about a 12-year-old boy who discovers that he is the son of the Sea God, Poseidon and then he goes on several adventures and fights monsters among the other  gods' children who are known as demi-gods. The series revolves around the mythology of Greece and portrays the lives of different Gods and demi-gods. My obsession for books have made my friends angry and they always complain about my introvert and self-centered behavior because of books. But it is not like that I am complaining because I think that some obsessions are good for health.

When once my friend was facing a problem related to a boy in her life and she was confused what to do and at that time I helped her to come out from that situation by giving her a solution to resolve her problem. Once I also helped my other friend in her worse situation in which she was, but when I needed her she was always with someone else. When I asked her she used to get irritated and she would then say 'sorry'. But she would repeat the same mistake again and then again she would say sorry. This is how she betrayed me, the one whom I trusted most.
