Celebrating our 31st Founders' Day
Today was a marvellous day. It started with our 12th-grade seniors sharing their experiences from their past classes. They suggested mistakes that we should avoid and shared their achievements up to the present. This session lasted about 1 hour, during which we learned that we should work on our weaker points and enjoy our own company, among other things.
After this, we had a cultural session where students performed with great energy. Our cultural session concluded with a mashup of songs by Rishi sir and his team. Teachers and support staff were each given a token of appreciation. The last activities included watching a movie, dancing, enjoying music, or playing games. At the end of the day, the school gave us a pen and a biscuit, which was satisfying and brought a large amount of happiness, making it an enjoyable day.
The Everyday Heroes of School
Peons and Co-Workers - THEY MAKE THINGS HAPPEN
In the busy world of school, where teachers and students often get the attention, some heroes do important work behind the scenes. Peons and co-workers may only sometimes be noticed, but they play a big part in ensuring the school runs smoothly. peons and co-workers are the quiet helpers who work behind the scenes to make sure the school works well every day. They assist with several tasks that keep the school running, such as janitorial work, ground maintenance, and library assistance. Clean places are a must for learning. Peons help keep classrooms, hallways, and other school grounds clean. This makes the school a pleasant place to be, and it helps students concentrate and focus better. Co-workers are like the heroes of the office. They do jobs like sorting papers, keeping records, providing water to drink, and helping with school events and functions. They pay attention to details, so everything is arranged and everyone knows what's going on. They respond quickly when help is required, and this helps everything at school run smoothly. Besides their jobs, peons and co-workers often become friends with students and teachers. They greet everyone warmly, do kind things, and make the school feel like a welcoming place. They also play with students often so nobody feels left out.
Peons are the unsung heroes of our schools. The saying "They Make Things Happen' really fits peons and co-workers. They put a lot of effort into making sure the school works without an issue, which helps learning and success for the students.

The rain makes me morose, wearing a melancholic silhouette as I stand, gazing towards its maleficent beauty. It makes me reminisce about all those memories I so dearly want to relive. I regret those times when God bestowed such porcelain beauty before me, yet I couldn't amuse myself with it. I stood at the window, saudade filling me as I beheld its beauty—the most symphonious dance I had ever seen. Everyone around me danced with her, but I stood petrified. 'Don’t go into the rain; you will get sick,' my mother stated multiple times. Now that I had grown up, no one stopped me, yet the eagerness of a child had left me. I mustered all the courage within me and joined her. The child in me awakened once again. I drenched myself in its everlasting beauty. I could hear Mozart as she danced with her heels, the wind complementing her movements. All we need to revive our inner child is to dance with the rain. You only need to find your rain.

Meditation is a part of yoga and is usually done individually. The aim of meditation is to quiet the thought waves of the mind. It involves the practice of mental concentration. Just a mere 10-15 minutes of meditation each day can bring many positive results to people's lives. A quiet place is chosen to meditate, and one sits in a comfortable position with closed eyes. The main goal is to concentrate on breathing. Daily meditation can help you perform better in your studies and work, improving your ability to handle multiple tasks.

Interview with Neenu Dutt Ma'am 
RP: What differences have you noticed in the school compared to your previous visits?
Neenu Ma'am: Firstly, I observed the most important feature of the school: more confident students, their active participation, and their courage to take initiative. Secondly, I appreciate the improved quality of the teaching. I like how teachers are fully engaged in various activities. I also admire the way Rajeshree Ma'am is taking steps to bring about new changes and progress in the school.
RP: What do you like about the school?
Neenu Ma'am: I appreciate the serene forest, the connection with nature, and the peaceful atmosphere of the school. These elements create an environment where every child can experience tranquility.
RP: How do you plan to balance upholding the school's traditions and values while encouraging innovation and progressive thinking among students and staff?
Neenu Ma'am: I believe in the importance of instilling moral ethics and etiquette in our students. It's essential for them to remain deeply connected to their roots and value their culture while also embracing innovative and progressive thinking.
RP: Fabindia has completed 30 years. What do you envision for it when it completes 50 years?
Neenu Ma'am: I envision Fabindia retaining its current essence but being even more closely intertwined with nature. When we were young, our mothers used to make glue from refined wheat flour to attach covers to our notebooks. As we've grown, the times have changed, and people have distanced themselves from nature. I want to emphasize the importance of valuing our natural surroundings. Our school is a green school, so we should be grateful for the environment we're in.
Interview with Jitendra Suthar
RP: From joining the school till now, what changes have you implemented in the school, and what advantages and drawbacks have you encountered in managing them?
JSR: I joined TFS in 2019. I distinctly remember the first assembly and introducing myself as the ATL Incharge to the students. One positive change I brought about was cultivating an interest in machines among the kids. We brainstormed, discussed, and worked on it together. When introducing something new, the advantages usually outweigh any minor drawbacks.
RP:  As you are the activity incharge, how do you come up with new ideas and activities, and what challenges have you faced in organizing them?
JSR:  It's a privilege to serve as the Activity Coordinator. I'm following in the footsteps of those who excelled in this role. Working and learning are ongoing processes. When it comes to ideas and activities, we have a fixed schedule with Principal Ma'am every Monday or Tuesday. We sit down, brainstorm, and finalize our plans.
RP: You are a teacher as well as a responsible incharge, how do you manage both roles simultaneously?
JSR: There are many people doing even more than I am! As a teacher, I keep my class flexible, aiming for a two-way conversation to ensure students grasp the topics. Regarding activities, I'm not alone. I'm fortunate to have an exceptional team. We design activities section-wise, plan events, conduct activities, handle certificates, manage the Activity Room, update registers, and maintain the Points table. With this dedicated team, my tasks become manageable.
RP:  You are the most favorite teacher of the senior section. What is the reason behind this?
JSR: Really? I take that as a compliment. Perhaps the students themselves can answer that best. I do what is expected of me. Sometimes, being straightforward and simple earns you that kind of popularity.
RP: Is there a message you'd like to convey to our school?
JSR: Our school has completed 31 years. It was founded with the vision that we, as Fabindians, will preserve our culture. Despite technological and ideological shifts, remember that our roots remain beneath the soil. They have the power to keep you grounded or pull you down. To remain strong, stay connected to your roots.
