Biding Farewell to the Batch of 2022-23

Goodbyes are not the end they simply mean "we'll miss you until we meet again"
School is the second home for the students and students are the heartbeat of the school. The Fabindia school bid a fond farewell to the outgoing batch of 2022-23.
It was organized by the juniors(class 11), teaching, and non-teaching staff. After a week-long preparation, we were all set for the program. By the morning itself, we were all busy with stage decorations and photobooth preparations.
At a sharp 5'o clock, the event commenced with the ribbon cutting ceremony by our seniors and principal ma'am. We started by calling our seniors on stage for a token of love. A performance by the dancers of class 11 pepped up the mood. Next, it was time for assigning the titles, which is perhaps the most exciting part of every farewell. The title of Mr.Fabindia was given to Sayed Ishan and Miss. Fabindia to Diya Suthar. Followed by a nostalgic speech by Laxman Parmar of XII-humanities. Jaywardhan of class XI-maths presented a video depicting the long and rich journey of class 12th. We had a great DJ party at last. The program ended with a delicious supper. We wished our seniors good luck in their future endeavors and with great nostalgia, we said goodbye!  and left for home.
There was a night stay and bonfire organized for class 12th so they stayed in school and enjoyed the moments with their friends and teachers.

Jatin Tripash
RP: What were your game-changer moments in your school life?
JTH: I strongly believe that My becoming the Vice Head Boy of the school was a game-changer moment in my school life because it taught me leadership qualities. I got to know the different perspectives of school life which helped me in decision-making. For me, it was a game-changing movement because it made me feel like I am worth something.
RP: One message or advice for the Fabindians.
JTH: My message for all the Fabindians out there is that keep doing what you love to do. Don't bother about the results, maybe someday you end up somewhere big. Make mistakes, and make lots of them. That’s right - make mistakes. This is the only time you can afford to make mistakes and learn from them without much cost. Lastly "Carpediem" means seize the day.

Rajveer Singh
RP: What was the best reward for your school life?
RSH: The best reward of my school life was becoming the Head Boy of the school. Honestly, I didn't expect that so it was an even more special moment for me which made me believe that I am worth something and I have all the qualities of being a leader.
RP: As a Head Boy of the school what are the struggles you have faced in the last year?
RSH: As a Head Boy I have faced many little problems but the main one was choosing honesty over friendship. Sometimes the decisions of the head boy were against the will of my friends and they found me strict with myself. So keeping the balance between friendship and leadership was the main task.
RP: After being the head boy of the school, what was the message that you want to share with all the Fabindians.
RSH: Being a head boy I want to say that everyone has the potential to do something big. Everyone is different from each other which is what makes them unique in their way. I want to say that grab each opportunity that comes your way because you never where you end up in the future.

मित्रता का मतलब दोस्ती होती है। हमें दोस्ती की सबसे ज्यादा जरूरत होती है। क्योंकि अगर दोस्त नहीं होंगे , तो हम खेलेंगे किसके साथ, पढ़ाई किसके साथ करेंगे, किससे बातें करेंगे, किसके साथ स्कूल जाएंगे? अगर मित्रता नहीं होंगी तो हम अकेले पड़ जाएंगे इसलिए हमें दोस्ती की सबसे ज्यादा जरूरत होती है। एक सच्चा दोस्त हमारे सगे भाई बहन से भी बढ़कर होता है। मित्र हर परिस्थिति में हमारा साथ देता है एवं हमारी सहायता करता है। सच्चा मित्र वह होता है जो मुसीबत में भी हमारा साथ ना छोड़े।

मकर संक्रांति 
हमारा देश 'विभिन्नताओं में एकता' वाला देश कहा जाता है। एक तरफ देश के हरेक प्रांत में कुछ अलग-अलग उत्सव मनाये जाते हैं परंतु कईं त्योहार पूरे देश में समान रूप से बड़े हर्षोल्लास से मनाये जाते हैं। इन त्योहारों में मकर संक्रांति भी महत्वपूर्ण त्योहार है। इन त्योहारों का ऋतुओं और प्राकृतिक अनुकूलताओं से संबंध होता है। मकर संक्रांति त्योहार मनाने के लिए सांस्कृतिक मान्यताओं के साथ-साथ मजबूत वैज्ञानिक कारण भी है। यह त्योहार सूर्य और पृथ्वी की गति और स्थिति के आधार पर होने वाले ऋतु परिवर्तनों से जुड़ा हुआ है। ऋतु-चक्र के अनुसार सूर्य 21 जून से दक्षिणायन और 22 दिसम्बर से वापस उत्तरायण की ओर गतिमान होता है। प्रतिवर्ष 14 जनवरी को सूर्य पृथ्वी के मकर रेखा पर पहुँचता है। मकर रेखा के संक्रमण करने के कारण इसे मकर संक्रांति कहा जाता है। 
ज्योतिष विज्ञान के अनुसार वर्षभर में सूर्य बारह राशियों से होकर गुजरता है। इस दिन सूर्य धनु राशि से मकर राशि में प्रवेश करता है। इसलिए इसे मकर संक्रांति कहा जाता है। तमिलनाडु में इसे पोंगल, केरल और कर्नाटक में सक्रांति, पंजाब एवं हरियाणा में लोहड़ी, असम में बिहू तो उत्तर प्रदेश, बिहार, मध्यप्रदेश, गुजरात, राजस्थान आदि में इसे सकरांत के नाम से मनाया जाता है। 
जैसा कि हम जानते हैं कि सूर्य ऊर्जा प्रदान करता है और प्राणिजगत् का आधार है। आधुनिक विज्ञान इसे विटामिन-डी के रूप में मान्यता देता है। संसार भर को ऊर्जावान् बनाने के कारण और उत्तरायण में गमन के महत्त्व के कारण सूर्य की पूजा की जाती है। इस समय अत्यधिक सर्दी में, ऊर्जा के स्रोत तिल और गुड़ खाने की परंपरा है। माना जाता है कि मकर संक्रांति के दिन मृत्यु होने पर पुनर्जन्म के बंधन से मुक्ति मिलती है और प्राणी मोक्ष को प्राप्त होता है। इसी दिन भीष्म पितामह ने प्राण त्यागे थे। मान्यता है कि इसी दिन गंगावतरण हुआ था। मकर संक्रांति को गंगा स्नान और दान पुण्य की भी परंपरा है। हमारी परंपराओं के वैज्ञानिक आधार है और  आधुनिक विज्ञान के कईं शोधों से यह प्रमाणित भी होता है। जिस तरह पत्तों का  डाली से और वृक्षों का अपनी जड़ों से जुड़े रहने पर ही अस्तित्व और महत्त्व होता है, उसी तरह हमें हमारी संस्कृति पर गर्व करते हुए हमेशा इससे जुड़े रहना चाहिए और इसकी समृद्धि के प्रयास करते रहना चाहिए। 
यह ऐसा समय है जब प्रकृति में उमंग रहती हैं और वसन्त की झलक महसूस होती है। लहलहाती फसलों के साथ किसान वर्ग अत्यंत प्रसन्नता से यह त्योहार मनाता हैं। इस दिन पतंगबाजी भी की जाती है और आकाश भर की समृद्धि की मंगलकामनाएँ की जाती हैं। समृद्धि, ऊर्जा, समरसता और बंधुत्व के इस त्योहार पर हमें हमारे और अबोध पक्षियों के जीवन की सुरक्षा का ध्यान रखते हुए पतंगबाजी करनी चाहिए। मकर संक्राति की बहुत-बहुत शुभकामनाएँ।

Science: Solar flares are incredibly powerful. The energy solar flares release is equivalent to millions of 100-megaton atomic bombs exploding at once, according to NASA. It’s a good thing the Earth’s atmosphere protects us from their radiation.

Social Science: In the Jhunjhunu district, there is a small town called Mandawa which lies on the silk route to China. The town is home to numerous fabulous Havelis that were built by the merchants. These Havelis serve as open-air art galleries as they are beautifully adorned with paintings of various themes on internal as well as external walls.
