The temple is highly decorated with foliage and holy figures. Teachers introduced the students to the culture of Rajasthan and its art. It was not just a picnic, it was an experience of spirituality. As teachers, we aimed to make students open to the environment and engage them with different shades of the historical place.
Leadership and Adventure Camp at the school
Feb 25, 2023: The Fabindia School organized a night camp on the school campus to encourage the students of class four to class eight in the presence of all the teachers and staff to maintain precautions, and having food facilities at night and in the morning. It switched new energy to revitalize the student’s mental and physical health throughout the day and night. The school had organized a list of plays and fun which were successfully carved out and enjoyed by students. The list contains Sports, Games, Art, Dance, Movie and so many fun activities. Bone fire, Football, Basketball, Cricket, Art and Movie were the special attractions. This prior planned event received a glimpse of multiplicity by everyone’s efforts over incessant seven days. Teachers said it is not only a night camp but also got students into a new approach of leading an open space together with disciplines led only by students in building each leadership qualities. It was everyone’s engagement that leads the school a little step towards shining.
The day is supposed to have started with school disciplines and sports driving the event forward.
A set of six team matches had come up with a duration of one and a half hours of playtime. Selective students were the main leaders of each tournament. Rahul Kalmolta, HOD of Physical Education, said, ‘Games and sports are activities that enhance the leadership quality, time management, trustworthiness and versatility of a student which drive them for a healthy lifestyle’.
Another interesting workshop, held on the day, was ‘wall painting’. It mesmerized the children with their engagement of drawings, brushes, and colors depending on the theme of nature and animals. Painting, through a big wall, helped students open up new ideas and visualizations of a creative corner of their minds. Generally, students were habitual in using small pieces of paper to paint, not the walls. The decision taken by the school had made their day enjoyable for learning. The school provided colors to students and they painted the wall with an authentic approach as they are. The concept of taking students outside in a free environment was to provide a large and open space to explore their hidden strengths which they may not have observed yet. This program was directed by Usha Parmar, Richa Malviya, and Subrata Sarkar (Kolkata). The Principal, Rajeshree Shihag, of the School has motivated and inspired students to enrich themselves in every aspect.
Meanwhile, the Dance has touched the peak of the excitement involving kids and other interested students. The Dance teacher, Neeraj Birawat, shared that Dance has many dimensions and values for the students as it helps to fit in terms of mental and physical normality by creating rhythmic body movements with music. One also can secure a niche in Dance further in life. Dance is a good friend of performing art which also was performed by students at night inside the school campus.
The playing schedule combines with a movie show in the mid-time after having all day’s activities. The movie title was ‘Interstellar’, a science-fiction plot based on time travel and space. The theater room was selected in the pre-primary school for all the students presented there.
All the teachers and students were scheduled to move to the jungle near the school campus for the special attractions in the form of a performance depicting the local tribal culture in a secure environment. Students previously arranged a setup inside the jungle according to the theme performance. It took seven days to build up that arrangement. All the sports teachers contributed a lot towards the best outlook.
Morning Yoga and Meditation
There was plenty of memory yet to be noted here. Being part of this charming event throughout the day, I enjoyed it a lot with all the students and teachers. We spent the whole night setting fire in the middle of our sitting circle. It was enjoyable and explorable with new thoughts and activities. Students also learned so many things from a day-long Night Camp they shared.

One of the reasons for the success of Great Personalities in the world is their positive attitude. These personalities have faced many challenges or failures, but their positive attitude kept them alive in this competitive world. The way we look at our life decides how our life will be.
As students face many situations where their mind is diverted by nervousness and stress. Exams, Sports, etc. competitions, and projects, all mount a burden on our brains. But our attitude comes to our rescue. We should just keep in our mind that 'I can do the task'. We should never be afraid of competition, but we shouldn't ever underestimate anybody.
We should be serious about our aims and yet enjoy our life at the same time. Because " Life is not only living but it's the positive way of living. "
So my request to everybody is that, " BE POSITIVE " & keep in mind that " ALL IS WELL & WILL BE WELL. "

मनुष्य धन कमाने के लिए जीवनभर काम और मेहनत करता है। धन का हमारे लिए बहुत अधिक महत्त्व होता है परंतु धन को ही सब-कुछ मान लेना ठीक नहीं है। प्रायः हम अर्थात मनुष्य धन को इतना मूल्यवान समझते हैं कि कभी-कभी इसके न होने पर अथवा धन की कमी महसूस होने पर हमारे मन में तनाव भर जाता है। यह तनाव दिन-ब-दिन बढ़ता जाता है और इसका बुरा प्रभाव हमारी सेहत पर दिखने लगता है। तनावपूर्ण जीवन के नुकसान का जब हमें अहसास होता है तब तक बहुत देर हो चुकी होती है। हमारी इस नासमझी के कारण केवल पछतावा ही हाथ लगता है।
हमें यह समझना बेहद जरूरी है कि हमारा स्वास्थ्य, धन की अपेक्षा कईं गुना अधिक महत्वपूर्ण होता है। मनुष्य को चाहिए कि धन प्राप्ति की लालसा से बाहर निकलकर, अपनी आवश्यकता पूर्ति के प्रयासों के साथ-साथ, अपने अच्छे स्वास्थ्य के प्रति सजग रहें। स्वास्थ्य के विषय में "पहला सुख निरोगी काया" की बहु प्रचलित उक्ति इसके महत्त्व को बताने के लिए पर्याप्त है। अच्छे स्वास्थ्य के लिए दुनिया भर में करोडों लोग नित्य योग और व्यायाम करते देखें जा सकते है। अतः हम कह सकते हैं कि स्वास्थ्य-धन सब तरह के धन से अधिक महत्वपूर्ण होता है। हम अच्छे स्वास्थ्य के साथ सुखमय जीवन जी सकें, इस हेतु प्रयास करें, नित्य-प्रति योग और व्यायाम करें। धन्यवाद।
