 Each One Plant One 
The Pre-Primary Section of The Fabindia School organized the activity "Each One Plant One" on Saturday, July 6th, 2024.
This activity aims to encourage young students to actively enhance the school garden by bringing a plant from home and contributing to its growth and maintenance.
Students from Nursery to Grade 1 were requested to bring a plant to school on Saturday, July 6th, 2024. This initiative aims to instill a sense of responsibility and environmental awareness among the students.
"Each One Plant One" activity promises to be an engaging and educational experience for the students. By involving students in gardening and plant care, the school aims to foster a sense of ownership and responsibility among its young learners.
We conducted a special assembly to discuss the value of plants, and the students also sang the rhyme "Ped lagao, Ped lagao".
Plantation done by some of our primary students under the guidance of gardener Sesaram Ji and Educator Khushi Rao was a resounding success. It served its purpose of educating the young minds about the importance of trees and the role each individual plays in nurturing our environment. Such initiatives are crucial in building a generation that is environmentally aware and proactive.

 Youth Parliament Elections Report 
Our school organized Youth Parliament Elections this week, allowing students to choose their leaders. It was a very exciting event. Every candidate was deeply involved, preparing and delivering speeches, campaigning, and supporting each other.

A big thank you to the teachers who worked hard to make this election happen.
 Causes of Stress on Modern Generation 
Navigating cut-throat competition and a consumptive culture, today's fast-paced world presents the youth with unprecedented challenges that often lead to high levels of stress and anxiety. Cut-throat competition and a consumptive culture have created a pressure-filled environment significantly impacting the mental health and well-being of young individuals. One of the defining characteristics of the modern era is intense competition in various spheres of life, from academics to careers and even social media. Young people are constantly pushed to excel and outperform their peers. The pursuit of excellence has transformed into a relentless race where success is not just a goal but a necessity for validation and survival. This relentless pursuit often results in stress, burnout, and a constant fear of failure among the youth.

 Mesmerizing Monsoon 
'Embrace the rhythm of the rain and let it wash away your troubles.' The rains wash away the dust from the trees, causing the grass and foliage to turn a vibrant green. Everywhere, there is a palpable sense of positivity and relief in the air. We eagerly await the monsoon season after enduring the scorching summer months. It brings a much-needed refreshing change and serves as a relief not only for humanity but also for the environment, which is undergoing a remarkable transformation. For me, one of the strongest times of inspiration is when the sky opens to pour its heart out in a manner unrestrained and unabashed. The good thing is I am not the only one raising a toast to the rains. It is like a moment of truth. The smell of the earth after the first fall of rain has always been romanticized. 'When it rains, look for rainbows. *When it's dark, look for stars.'*

 हमारे जीवन के महत्वपूर्ण मूल्य उत्तरदायित्व और सहयोग 
उत्तरदायित्व का अर्थ है वह करना जो हमें करना चाहिए और अपने कर्तव्यों का ध्यान रखना। उदाहरण के लिए, यदि  हमें गृहकार्य दिया है तो उसे समय पर पूरा करना हमारा उत्तरदायित्व है। उत्तरदायी होने से हमें दूसरों का विश्वास और सम्मान हासिल करने में मदद मिलती है।
सहयोग का अर्थ है एक सामान्य लक्ष्य को प्राप्त करने के लिए मिलकर काम करना। जब हम सहयोग करते हैं, तो हम विचार साझा करते हैं और एक-दूसरे की मदद करते हैं। उदाहरण के लिए, एक समूह परियोजना में, सभी को सर्वोत्तम परिणाम प्राप्त करने के लिए एक साथ काम करना चाहिए और एक-दूसरे का समर्थन करना चाहिए।
हमारे दैनिक जीवन में उत्तरदायित्व और सहयोग दोनों ही महत्वपूर्ण हैं। जब हम उत्तरदायी होते हैं तो हम अपना काम अच्छी तरह से करते हैं। जब हम सहयोग करते हैं, तो हम सभी के लिए चीज़ों को आसान और अधिक मज़ेदार बनाते हैं। साथ मिलकर, ये मूल्य हमें एक बेहतर और अधिक सामंजस्यपूर्ण समुदाय बनाने में मदद करते हैं।
तो आइए जिम्मेदार बनें और एक-दूसरे का सहयोग करें। ऐसा करके, हम महान उपलब्धियाँ हासिल कर सकते हैं और अपनी दुनिया को एक बेहतर जगह बना सकते हैं।
