The Puppet Show 
On Saturday, April 20, 2024, a captivating puppet show depicting the classic tale of "The Thirsty Crow" was staged at The Fabindia School. Organized for young learners, the event aimed to entertain while imparting valuable moral lessons.
The children were enthralled as the story unfolded through the skillful manipulation of colorful puppets. They eagerly followed the journey of the clever crow and his quest for water, learning about the importance of determination and resourcefulness.
Laughter and cheers filled the air as the crow's ingenuity led to a solution to his problem. Through this engaging medium, the children not only had fun but also grasped the story's moral lesson: the rewards of hard work and persistence.
The event was a resounding success, leaving a lasting impression on the young audience and reinforcing the significance of moral values in an enjoyable and interactive manner.

 Impact of Social Media on Teenagers 
Social Media has had a significant impact on teenagers, with both positive and negative effects. Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter have become major distractions for students. Young boys and girls seem to be excessively addicted to these platforms, spending large amounts of time on them without much purpose. Wise people say that time well utilized is time well spent, but today's youth are primarily wasting time on chatting, messaging, uploading photos, and modifying profiles. Smartphones and 4G connections have exacerbated the situation. Accessing these sites has become so easy that young boys and girls use them almost everywhere and almost all the time.
On the other hand, social networking and media-sharing platforms have greatly improved convenience and efficiency for everyone. There's hardly a field where social networking and media are not being used! Education, industry, finance, defense, teaching, learning, research, medicine, accounting, entertainment, online education, telecommunication, media, and even space exploration all rely on the internet and computers.
Although social media can be a major distraction, it has also brought many benefits, making life and work much easier for everyone.

 Cultural Heritage 
Every day, people around the world celebrate their cultural heritage simply by living their lives in a way that reflects who they are and where they came from. But one day each year is set aside to celebrate the shared history and heritage of the human race. World Heritage Day encourages us to honor all of the world's cultures, raise awareness about important cultural monuments and sites, and emphasize the importance of preserving the world's diverse cultures.
Siddhartha Suthar / ll
Life is like a seed, constantly growing. Every experience, whether good or bad, helps us rise higher. Just as a plant reaches for the sun, we reach for our dreams, overcoming challenges along the way. Growth isn't always easy, but it's essential for progress. Each obstacle we face lifts us to new heights, shaping us into stronger, wiser individuals. Embrace the journey, for in the struggle, we find our truest selves, elevated to greater heights of existence. Life's journey is a staircase; with each step, we ascend, growing taller with every stride.

 Exploring RIMC: A Journey Through Tradition, Discipline, and Leadership 
Visiting the Rashtriya Indian Military College (RIMC) in Dehradun was an enriching experience. As I stepped onto the campus grounds, I sensed the aura of discipline and tradition that permeated the environment.
I participated in the Hugh Catchpole English Debate, which was a wonderful experience. I learned many new things, including how national-level debates are conducted, how to effectively express my arguments and thoughts, and much more. 
During my interactions with the cadets, I got to know about their daily routines, dedication to duty, and the brotherhood among peers. I also had the chance to observe a parade and a drill demonstration, showcasing the precision and discipline instilled in every cadet.
While exploring the campus, I saw historic buildings, memorial halls, and museums that showcased the rich heritage and legacy of RIMC. The stories of alumni who have gone on to serve the nation with honor and valor also inspired me.
Throughout my visit, I gained a deep appreciation for the values of courage, leadership, and service that RIMC imparts to its students. My time at RIMC has left a lasting impression and instilled in me a sense of pride and respect for the institution and its noble mission.

My experience at RIMC was ephemeral yet profound. I met people with different perspectives and learned a lot from them. The campus itself was a visual feast; the more I explored, the more I yearned to discover. Debate is a form of discussion more noble than any other, and attending such a prestigious event for debate and discussion was an unparalleled experience. New friendships were formed, and social media accounts were exchanged. Receiving praise from some of the best schools in the country helped me understand where I stood and motivated me to achieve more. I am now more excited about any future debate competitions in my academic journey. I would like to end by saying, “Just take what life throws at you.”

I was at the peak of my excitement when I first entered the gate. It read "Rashtriya Indian Military College," but I saw it as "The Gateway of Opportunities to Serve the Nation." As we walked through the campus, I felt a distinct vibe, a unique aura that set RIMC apart from other institutions. I met many new people and interacted with several excellent teachers. Although I usually struggle to make friends, I made many during this visit. Most of the students I met were older than me, offering me advice on academics, career paths, and, most importantly, life. Meeting new people can be incredibly helpful, and here's why.
When you meet new people, you have to introduce yourself. This process encourages you to reflect on yourself, your evolving mindset, and your changing choices. Through these interactions, I learned that confidence is essential, as is knowledge. While you can't always control who you meet, you can choose to interact with new people, pick up their best qualities, and make them your own. This approach will always benefit you in the long run. Overall, RIMC hit me like a sudden breeze of peace, a coolness that will stay with me forever.
