राम-लीला' - 'सीता-हरण प्रसंग
=====================
भारत की सांस्कृतिक पहचान के आधार-स्तंभ श्री रामजी की जीवन-लीलाओं का, न केवल भारत अपितु विश्व के कईं अन्य देशों में भी, मंचन किया जाता हैं। देश के हरेक राज्य में कईं सामाजिक संगठन, अपनी-अपनी स्थानीय भाषाओं में, श्री राम-जानकी के लीलामृत से जनसामान्य को लाभान्वित करते हुए प्रायः देखें जाते है। आदिकवि वाल्मिकी के बाद संत शिरोमणि बाबा तुलसीदास जी ने अवधि भाषा में 'रामचरित मानस' महाकाव्य की रचना करके मर्यादा पुरुषोत्तम के आदर्शों के द्वार आमजन के लिए खोल दिए। श्री रामजी के जीवन का गुणगान करने वाले मंचीय कार्यक्रम 'राम-लीला' के नाम से जाने जाते है। यह त्योहारों का दौर हैं, भारत का जन-जन, दीपावली के महापर्व की धूम की तैयारी में लीन है। आज शुक्रवार, कार्तिक मास की पंचमी तिथि (१४ अक्तूबर २०२२) को, हमारे विद्यालय में राम-लीला के 'सीता-हरण' प्रसंग का मंचन किया गया। 
राम-लीला के अरण्य-काण्ड में, श्री रामजी के चौदह वर्ष के वनवास के समय तेरहवें वर्ष में, जब वे 'पंचवटी' नामक मनोहारी स्थान पर खपरैल से कुटिया बनाकर देवी सीता और लक्ष्मण सहित निवास करते हैं, तब एक दिन प्रातः सूर्योदय की वेला में मंगलाचार पूजा के लिए, देवी सीता वन से पुष्प चुन रही थी, तभी वहाँ एक अत्यंत सुन्दर स्वर्ग-मृग आता है। मृग को देखकर देवी सीता लुभाती है और उत्साहपूर्वक कुटिया में आकर श्री रामजी को स्वर्ण-मृग पकड़ लाने का आग्रह करती है। 
स्वर्ण-मृग के प्रति देवी सीता की आसक्ति और तीव्र उत्कण्ठा के कारण श्री रामजी मृग को पकड़ने के लिए वन में जाते है। वन में श्री रामजी के बाण से, कपटी मृग के रूप में महामायावी राक्षस 'मारिच' घायल होकर श्री रामजी की आवाज में सहायता के लिए 'लक्ष्मण और सीता' को पुकारता है। कुटिया में देवी सीता राम की पुकार महसूस करती है और लक्ष्मण को विवश करते हुए श्री रामजी की सहायता के लिए वन में भेज देती हैं। उस समय रावण कुटिया में आता है और धोखे से देवी सीता का हरण कर ले जाता है।
 सीता-हरण के इस प्रसंग का भावपूर्ण मंचन कक्षा नवम् के विद्यार्थियों ने किया। यह कार्यक्रम सभी विद्यार्थियों के लिए आकर्षक और ज्ञानवर्धक रहा।

Homesickness
Homesickness is what brings me back to The Fabindia School. I feel extremely fortunate that I got to live one more energetic day at the school this week. With the due support and warmth of the school, I got to interact with the students at an intense level. The air on the campus is like a comforting hug for each one of us.
In the morning assembly, emphasis on physical and mental health was something that helped kick start an energetic, confident, and innately productive day. This was followed by classroom as well as one on one interaction where I got to connect with the students on an individual level. I am overjoyed that I could create this safe space for every kid around me.
Owing to the school's support and optimism, a compendious orientation session was also conducted regarding the Oratory Club for Classes IX-XII. The entire experience has been immensely empowering for me and I believe words wouldn't do enough justice in explaining that.
I look forward to contribute my skills and energy in ways that will be obliging and beneficent.

 Diwali
Diwali is a Hindu festival. Diwali is celebrated on Kartika Amavasya. It is also known as Deepawali. Diwali is the festival of lights and diyas. Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya on this day. He defeated the demon Ravana. People were happy and celebrated by lighting diyas. We eat sweets and burst crackers. We should always fight evil. 💥HAPPY DIWALI💥

My Diwali Excitement 
Diwali is my favourite festival as it makes everything shine. In India, we celebrate Diwali with great enthusiasm. On this day Lord Ram returned to their house and to welcome them diyas were lit. I am Priyanka, a student of Class III. I will be sharing my excitement related to Diwali. As you know It falls in October and November, now it is September and I am very much excited about it. Last Diwali I enjoyed a lot, lighting divas,  decorating our homes,  wearing new clothes, worshipping Goddess Laxmi and Lord Ganesha, and taking love and blessings from elders Diwali was much fun. I love burning firecrackers but while discussing with my teachers, she made me realize how these firecrackers affect us and nearby animals. Often they get scared because of the lighting and the excessive voice. This Diwali I have decided to celebrate an eco-friendly Diwali with no harm to anyone by lighting divas and making rangolis. What about you?

SELF-OBSESSED
Let me try to compliment what many people are embarrassed about?
 If you have chubby arms/legs/cheeks, I think it's cute. the skin is soft, you just want to squeeze and your shoulders are the most comfortable to put your head down when falling asleep on public transport. If you have freckles, then you are kissed by the sun. Such people are the most sparkling and caring, warm as the sun. If you have scars, that's your story. Skin patterns that carry an amazing life story (maybe sometimes heavy, but still existing) if you have stretch marks, this is a drawing of sea waves running through the sand in calm times. If you have curly hair, you have no idea how beautifully they shimmer in the sun. You are amazing!! your whole body with each of its components is a picture of a person's life with highlights in the form of various little things. 
Try to love yourself first!

Corruption-free India for a Developed Nation
Today as we can see heat has reached heights. In India we are going through corruption every day, every news is showing some or the other corruption details. In this huge population of about 135 crore people, we can't imagine in which corner corrupt people are sitting royally and poor people or innocent ones have no idea about what is happening or what will happen to them. Activities like corruption is is making India hollow from the inside and to raise, rise and develop India we need to eradicate it. The majority of the country, especially the rich ones, is responsible for this. 
 Every time our government put action against corruption but as a result, it is not affecting many corrupt people. Such an action of government like demonetization reduced the rate of corruption for a few years as the black money came out in large amounts from my opinion I think this action was effective but this leads to a problem for middle-class people because it was difficult for them to exchange notes. So, some steps must be taken which are in favor of the middle class. As we can see around us also everyday corruption is going but the one who suffers is the poor or middle class only in each and every field the rich bribe for some competitive posts. Due to corruption, the rich are getting richer and the poor ones are getting poorer and because of this nation is not developing continuously.
We can see that the one who holds power and money easily bribes for the competitive posts whether they are not talented or they acquire that ability to get through it but because of that, the one who had put all their efforts fails to get that post which is very disappointing. Even in schools and colleges, undertable donation stops the admission of talented ones as they cannot afford high donation they lose their seat to the one who is not capable just because of donation. But all these situations remain unexposed and the poor suffer this and richer enjoy this. Even in sports if someone has relations with popular personalities they get through it easily. 
To stop all these activities we need to take steps to aware people about the causes of it and introduce our youth to how to inhibit corruption processes, try to stop people from giving or taking bribes even for a simple condition, and step by step we can get rid of it and secondly strict actions needs to be taken against the corrupt people, the government should not ignore all this and move on. The government needs to have quick resolutions for it is a great personality; a politician, businessman, or anyone rules must be equal for everyone. The cases file should not rest in cupboards or fly over other offices we need to arrange and set the situation according to, that no one suffers or is left due to corruption. Then only we can see a corruption-free or transparent nation.

Corruption-free India for a Developed Nation
Corruption in India has spread a lot nowadays. As we know it is spread all over the sectors mainly in the government sector. The main reason for corruption is the people who don't want to follow the rules of the system. There must be a system made by the government which keeps checks among the different sectors and there must be a strict rule that if they find any corruption activity in any sector strict action must be taken against that person or sector. This is the way we can decrease and abolish corruption.

Corruption is the main reason which stops a country from its growth, especially developing countries like India. India is still in the stage of development because here people and the system are corrupted. Corruption is an old social evil that has weakened the system of India because here in many institutions and even in schools admission is done not based on the student's ability or scores but based on the bribe. Whoever gives more bribes will get admission. After the independence of India in 1947, and even after lots of economic reforms were launched but India is still in the stage of development and the only reason for it is corruption. If corruption is abolished then India is surely going to be a developed country.
Government passes or implements many schemes for the poor sections of society for the people who are enabled to fulfill the government of their basic needs gives them subsidies in which these BPL people can get their basic necessary needs in the low prices than the average, But between many people corrupts all these facilities granted by government and it doesn't reach to the needy people. All the schemes and all the budget was enjoyed by these people who are already capable and rich enough to fulfill their needs and because of this, the gap between rich and poor is increasing. Rich are becoming richer and the poor are becoming poorer, and to make the poor equal it is very important that the corruption from our country India is totally removed. To remove corruption we have to first start from us. If we see any corruption around us we must complain against the person or the system without being a part of it. Corruption is not only by money but it can be by action also. Like powerful people can easily get a seat in school or in any institution but a person who is not much powerful didn't get a seat even if they have got abilities or even good grades

Child Labour
The children are forced to work like adults at a young age; this act is called Child Labour. It simply ceases the childhood of small children. It leads to physical, social, and moral harm to little children. The number of children who are forcefully employed is undetected in India. In India, children are forced to work illegally in multiple industries. However, Agriculture is the largest sector that employs children to contribute to the family income. Indian rural sectors employ 85 percent of children due to various social factors that fail to meet their lifestyle. Many rural communities lack adequate school facilities and the availability of schools. The low-paying economy blooms with low-cost, easy-to-hire, and Child Labour. Besides the unorganized Agricultural sector, Child Labour exists in unorganized assembly, unorganized retail works, and unorganized trade sectors. Due to high poverty and poor schooling opportunities, child labor is quite prevalent in India.
