Freedom is in the mind, faith in words, pride in our hearts, and memories in our souls. Let's salute the nation on Independence Day! Independence Day holds great significance in the hearts of every Indian and reminds us of the sacrifices that many freedom fighters made to gain freedom from British rule. To commemorate the sovereignty of our nation, we organized an Inter-Class Badge Making competition. Our young, enthusiastic learners created different types of badges and decorated them with colors and papers in shades of saffron, white, and green. To understand the significance of the tri-color, students participated in a National Flag colouring activity. The craft was environmentally friendly and prepared by arranging paper strips in the shape of a blossoming flower, proudly coloured in the hues of the Indian National Flag. All the students thoroughly enjoyed the activity as they expressed their feelings and emotions towards their country through art.
Biography of Indian Freedom Fighters
On Saturday, August 12, 2023, our school porganized a captivating Inter-Class activity focused on exploring the biographies of Indian freedom fighters. The aim of this event was to educate and inspire students about the valiant efforts and sacrifices made by these remarkable individuals who played a pivotal role in India's struggle for independence from British colonial rule.
Each student delved into comprehensive research to craft insightful biographical presentations. The presentations were a splendid blend of storytelling, historical facts, and personal reflections. This not only enriched our understanding of the freedom fighters' lives but also provided a glimpse into the socio-political context of the times.
Some of the notable freedom fighters chosen by our peers included Mahatma Gandhi, Bhagat Singh, Subhas Chandra Bose, Rani Lakshmibai, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Lal Bahadur Shastri.
The event was marked by enthusiastic participation from students across all classes. The atmosphere was charged with patriotism as each presenter shared anecdotes of sacrifice, courage, and determination. The audience, comprised of fellow students and teachers, was inspired by the tales of these historical icons and their unwavering commitment to India's freedom.

Importance of Independence Day
Every year on August 15th, Independence Day is celebrated across India. It was on this day in the year 1947 that India was declared independent from British Colonial rule. People remember the sacrifices of many freedom fighters who laid down their lives fighting for India's independence. To celebrate Independence Day, events are organized in schools and colleges across the country, where students deliver speeches on India's independence. As the 77th Independence Day approaches, students are preparing to deliver speeches that will make them feel proud and inspire others. Here are some short speech ideas for students to celebrate the Independence Day of our great country. On this day, we remember the brave souls who sacrificed their lives for our freedom, teaching us the values of unity in diversity and the progress that comes from a young mind. You have the power to shape our country's future through education, equality, and kindness. Embrace our cultural heritage while embracing modern ideas. Let's pledge to work together, break barriers, and build a better India. Happy Independence Day! Jai Hind!

Creativity is not something that a person is born with, nor is it naturally present from birth. Your creativity depends on your surroundings, the society you are brought up in, your mindsets—how differently you can think from others—and the way you see the world, the people around you, and the things around you.
Have you ever wondered why kids are called creative? It's because they don't know about trends or goods; they tend to think differently from others, whether it's good or bad. They put forth their own perceptions in everything and are not afraid to share and show them to others. They show genuine interest in whatever they do. However, as grown-ups, we don't always feel confident enough to showcase something unique. Whatever we like, we try to copy it or at least mention something that's already been done.
Creativity is not a talent; it's a learning process to see things in a different way. It's not always necessary to create something entirely unique, but you can try to collect what has already been done and combine it in a way that no one else has before. Psychology says that only 22% of creativity can be inherited through genes.
You have to find your own creative field, practice it, and dedicate time to doing what excites you. You need to show it to others to receive feedback and improve yourself. Be passionate about it and simply shine. Even if it's not perfect, jot down four pages; maybe you'll find one good sentence in your work that you can call yours.
Just be yourself, do your own stuff, and maybe one day, your hard work and dedication will earn you the title of "creative."

Picture a garden. You plant a tiny seed and take care of it. You give it water, sunlight, and attention. Over time, that seed grows into a beautiful plant. Success is a lot like that. It starts with an idea or a dream. You nurture it by setting goals and working hard. Each action you take is like giving water and sunlight to that dream. And as you keep going, your dream can grow into something amazing. Success isn't just about reaching a big goal. It's about the journey, the progress you make along the way. Sometimes, success means facing your fears. Imagine you're scared of heights, but you decide to try climbing a small hill. As you conquer that fear and reach the top, that's a success. Each time you step out of your comfort zone and try something new, you're moving toward success. Remember, success is personal. It's about what makes you happy and fulfilled. Maybe it's getting good grades in school, making new friends, or learning to play a musical instrument. Each person's puzzle of success is unique, and there's no one-size-fits-all answer. So, keep exploring, trying new things, and taking steps toward your dreams. And when you look back at all you've achieved, you'll see the beautiful picture of success that you've created, piece by piece. At last, I would like to end my words with a beautiful quote -"Success is a journey, not a destination"

Interview with Piyush Gehlot (Class 11)
Reporters/RP: Aaradhya Champawat and Tiya Sompura
RP: What do you find eccentric about Fabindia School?
Piyush: The concept of blocks is interesting, and our class has 5 corners, which integrates the light better compared to 4 corners where the light might fall on someone. The best part about the school is its emphasis on sports as well.
RP: What are your aspirations for the future?
Piyush: Although I haven't made concrete plans, I aim to pursue an MBA at IIM Ahmedabad, considering it's a premier college and many companies hire their employees from there.
RP: Did you encounter any challenges when you first joined the school?
Piyush: During my initial days at the school, since it was new to me, I faced a few challenges. Meeting new teachers and students made me hesitant to ask questions or initiate conversations. It took around 15 days to become familiar with the class.
RP: How do you perceive the school's environment?
Piyush: One aspect I truly enjoy about the school is its location away from the town's chaos. The presence of different blocks requires some movement, and although there are mosquitoes, the students are well-behaved. Unlike my experiences in other schools, here the girls are friendly and not reserved around the boys.
RP: Who are the individuals you admire the most in the school?
Piyush: I have two favorites: an educator and a classmate. Vinod Sir is my preferred teacher due to his effective teaching style and attention to every student. Additionally, Anshuman, my classmate, stands out for his sarcasm, intellectual approach, and entertaining jokes.
