Good Luck, ma'am !

Hello everyone

Through this platform, I dedicate my words and feelings to one of our fantastic teachers, Mrs. Aparna Singh , who has decided to move on in life.

I could possibly tell you the way by which you can help ... finding a cure... Surprised ...Well don't be.While I was surfing net I came across FOLDING@HOME . Basically protein fold in our body ... if the folding goes wrong, we acquire numerous diseases ... STANFORD UNIVERSITY has created a software to connect many computers to one mega Super Computer through internet ... so that by distributed computing ... they can simulate protein folding ... to see what actually goes wrong.

Now... how can you help ? Do you have a PC,PS3 Or a MAC ? You just need to download the software from HERE ... and run it so that you can connect to the bandwidth in which millions of people are working now ... all types of PC'S and MAC'S can process different kinds of information very well , especially gaming rigs with high end GRAPHIC CARDS / and those with dual core and quad core processors ... I guess for a noble cause we all can afford to contribute ... NOW WHAT DO WE EXPECT FROM YOU ? Nothing much !!! Just download the software and go working ...That's all ...

Eid Mubarak to all of you. Eid al-Adha, "Festival of Sacrifice" or "Greater Eid"is celebrated worldwide to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God.

The festivities last for three days or more depending on the country.

Interactive Session On CCE

Dear all

In an endeavor to bring about the much-needed change in the education policy in India, CBSE has introduced CCE i.e. Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation in schools for classes IX and X. This new evaluation system aims at identifying and promoting the hidden talents in the children and hence shifts the focus from 'just' academics to the overall development of a child. Magnificent efforts are required to be put in while bringing about a change. And in our school too, teachers are taking great pains to leave no stones unturned while contributing for a hopefully, successful run of CCE. In a bid to create general and specific awareness for the same among students, certain workshops are being conducted in our school. Vice Principal ma'am, Mrs. Anjali Malik discussed the various aspects of CCE with students of class IX in the workshop. Hence, the school is setting up a dialogue between the students and teachers through such interactive sessions. We really appreciate the efforts of one and all. Let's just hope that everything goes well.
Also, you may check this older post about CCE.
Keeping our fingers crossed, we sign off...

Hundreds Of New Species Discovered In Eastern Himalayas

Dear all

Over 350 new species including the world's smallest deer , a "flying frog " and a 100-million years old gecko has been discovered in the eastern Himalayas
A decade of research carried out by scientists in remote mountains , endangered by rising global temperatures bought exiting discoveries .
Historically rugged and large inaccessible landscape of Himalayans made biological surveys in the region extremely difficult as a result many regions are biologically unexplored ........
Eastern Himalayas harbor a staggering 10,000 plant species , 300 mammal species , 977 bird species , 176 reptiles , 105 amphibians and 269 types of freshwater fishes . the region also have highest density of Bengal tigers in the world and latest bastion of charismatic one horned -rhino .
WWF is working to conserve the habitat of endangered species such as snow leopard ,Bengal tigers , Asian elephants , Red pandas , takin and golden langurs etc......
Its paradoxical to find man who needs the environment most id destroying its peace and sanctity ,,,directly r indirectly we are affecting the world around us so why don't we follow certain norms ..which can contribute in curbing Global Warming ...which is affecting Himalayan glaciers and the fauna niche on it ........Himalayan glacier is a small part of the worls if we want to save the worls we have to join hands and strive for a perfect world ....


Happy Children's Day !

Dear all

Happy Children's Day to all! Yes, to all! Why? Don't we all long to be a child? Don't we all crave for our childhood again? Well, there's no point in being a grown up if you can't be childish sometimes! So, Be a child today! We know its a refreshing thought ... the thought of your sweet childhood!

Celebrated on 14 November i.e. on the birthday of Chacha Nehru who loved and was loved by children, this day is simply set to honor children and minors. The day is marked with a lot of activities for children. But the fact remains that only a section of the country’s children actually have an opportunity to celebrate their existence. There is an entire populace of young ones that are left ignored on this special day – the downtrodden street children. This day reminds to each and every one of us, to renew our commitment to the welfare of children and teach them to live by their Chacha Nehru’s quality and dream. What can you do about it? Childhood is about innocence and playfulness .It is about joy and freedom . May be on this day you might sign up to sponsor education of a underprivileged child in an NGO such as PRAYAS orCRY

In our school too, students of classes VI, VII and VIII have had loads of fun on the fields! The school had organized Sports Day for these young and never-tiring souls on 10, 11 and 12 November 2009. And what better a gift than this to these amiable children on the occasion of Children's Day. It was almost a festival in the school's playground! One could find them running, playing, enjoying and learning with each passing moment. A splendid sight to witness! Many won in their respective events while many just missed it. But then these very battles prepare one to win the war ! And that's what school's education is all about. Napolean put it correct when he said 'Victory belongs to the most persevering.' Those who could not make it to the top spot will definitely win some other day, if they keep putting in their best efforts.

Do watch IBN7 today at 7:00 pm to know experiences and views of our prime minister Dr. Manmohan Singh.

Once again... Wishing you all a very Happy Children's Day.

The Fire-Fighting Workshop

Dear All

Preparedness and Prevention is always better than cure. In every unfortunate instance of disasters, our preparedness determines our ability to respond effectively and hence combat the consequences of the same. And to prepare the youngsters of our school for future, a demonstration on Fire-fighting was organized in the school premises.

Students were told about the know-how of the skill of fire-fighting. Since firefighters are often the first responders to people in critical conditions, firefighters provide many other valuable services to the community they serve. Students were told about all this and lots more. How to 'read' a fire, how does a fire extinguisher work, the science of extinguishment, when and how to use water, how to tactfully isolate a fire... All such questions were answered during the course of the workshop. Simple hands-on activities further enhanced the understanding of a child about something as deadly as fire. We hope that the students never need to apply this acquired knowledge about fire-fighting in their lives, but, in case, they encounter any mishappening, they would be better equipped to fight the same. Signing off at this note...

Minister's Verse - A poem by Kapil Sibal

Please rid me of this awful load
preparing for the class X board

My thirsty mind craves to create
Not have exams decide my fate

My wondrous eyes yearn to explore
Much beyond my classroom doors

My dreams should not be cut to size
Because I hate to memorize

If you test me for brains and guile
Don't have to look at percentiles

Marks encourage one upmanship
a free ride on an ego trip

With textbooks I should start to surf
Inquiringly look for new turf

Walk away from the trodden path
And not invite my teacher's wrath

Solving a sum will not help find
Real answers to a questioning mind

Create the space for me to run
Let learning be a lot of fun

Dear all

Well, IInd Cycle Tests are over. We hope that you have performed satisfactorily! Anyways, this time, we would want to scribble about the the co-curricular activities which graced the day of 29 October. Yes, exactly! We are referring to the visit of the Japanese delegation to our school and the Kathakali dance performance by Padmashri Kalamandalam Gopiji later, under the aegis of Spic Macay.

Click here to view all the photographs.

On the Peace Mission across the globe, the delegates from Japan placed a Pillar Of Peace in the school premises and requested all to participate in the oath-making ceremony. Everybody declared in resounding volume- " May Peace Prevail On Earth " and we really wish, peace becomes a way of life, everywhere from now on. The interaction emphasized on the futility of disharmony and destruction. It was really a refreshing moment for all.

And in the afternoon hours, the school was mesmerized by the ecstatic kathakali performance by none other than Padmashree Awardee Kalamandalam Gopiji. The vivid colours of the dance attire added stars to the performance. His hand movements and elaborate gestures made all visualize and actualize the joy of dance and music. It was all in the moment, very enthralling. We really wish that we get to witness the maestro at his best again...

Annual Day Celebrations 2009

Dear all

We are back to the pavilion! We hope that you all had a blast(not in terms of crackers!) this festive season.And now, we wish to scribble in the school's diary i.e. on the blog again! Through this post, we intend to acknowledge the magnificent efforts put in by everybody towards making the celebration of Annual Day 2009 truly successful. Events like this cannot happen overnight. Wheels start rolling weeks ago. It takes perseverance and a bird's eye for details.

Scheduled for October 15th, the function commenced at about 5:30 in the evening with a bang. Sh. A.S.Gill, Director General CRPF obliged to be the Chief Guest for the event while Mrs. Manjeet Gill, President CWWA, was the Guest of Honour. Former DGs were also cordially invited to grace the evening with their valuable presence. After a brief conversation with the school's prefectorial board, the guests proceeded to attend the main event.

The beginning of the function was marked by lighting of the lamp ceremony. Then came the choir group in its full glory to sizzle the stage. It was followed by a mesmerizing performance by the very talented instrumentalists of the school. Then the stage was flooded with the tiny tots beautifully performing in their ballet. The audience witnessed a scintillating act on the theme Natural Resources: A mission with a vision and was provoked to think about the plight of depleting natural resources and the uncertainties that our future holds for us.

After the junior ballet, the school presented the guests with saplings as a token of love for them. Then, Principal sir delivered his final speech as the school's head. He had a lot to say to his successors. His words of appreciation and inspiration left everybody brimming with emotions. He, then invited the school's Head Boy and the Head Girl to read out the school's Annual Report. Click here to see the report. Then the Guest of Honour was requested to release this year's edition of the school's magazine Srijun. Prizes were given away to the outstanding student achievers for the session 2008-09. The Vote of Thanks was proposed by the school's Head Girl.

Then came the turn of Senior Ballet- Rashmirathi Karna. Children were all geared up to give it their best shots. The act was based on a very relevant theme. It indirectly addressed the youth of today which feels paralyzed by some invisible factors to realize their full potential. Also, on the auspicious occasion of Diwali, the Head Boy and the Head Girl urged the assemblage to observe a Green Diwali this year and in the years to come to live in harmony with nature. The National Anthem was sung by all to mark an end to the Annual Day's celebrations.

We have just words of praise for all. Everybody was compelled to come out of their comfort zones to accomplish the various tasks assigned. Like everything else, it had to come to an end. Events like this give children a great platform to showcase their talents. We are very optimistic for the celebrations next year. It gets better with each passing year, and that's a great sign ! Watch out for the photographs here.

Dear all

The festival of Diwali, the festival of lights has finally arrived. And hence, first and foremost, we wish you all a very, very Happy Diwali. May this Diwali bring lots and lots of happiness to all of you. May this Diwali be the most sparkling and lightening.The sights and sounds filling up your heart with joy and happiness.Let this Diwali burn all your bad times and enter you in good times.
Diwali is a significant festival in Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Jainism, and an official holiday in India. Adherents of these religions light diyas to signify victory of good over the evil within an individual. Diwali is the abbreviation of the Sanskrit word "Deepavali". Deepa meaning light and Avali, meaning a row. It means a row of lights and indeed illumination forms its main attraction.

The story behind Diwali varies from region to region, several significant events associated with it are Return of Rama to Ayodhya and The Killing of Narakasura. Diwali celebrations are spread over five days in India and all over the world. All the days except Diwali are named according to their designation in the Hindu calendar.

While Diwali is popularly known as the "festival of lights", the most significant spiritual meaning is "the awareness of the inner light".Many Diwali festivals have come and gone. Yet the hearts of the vast majority are as dark as the night of the new moon. The house is lit with lamps, but the heart is full of the darkness of ignorance.The sun does not shine there, nor do the moon and the stars, nor do lightning shine? All the lights of the world cannot be compared even to a ray of the inner light of the Self. Merge yourself in this light of lights and enjoy the supreme Diwali.

And on this auspicious occasion, E-club urges you all to celebrate a Green Diwali. In the simplest terms, we mean to say, DO NOT burn crackers. By doing so, you are actually saying NO to noise and air pollution and YES to Life! Many of the E-members are also strongly recommending a Diwali which is free from the cacophony of crackers and full of happiness and joy, through their blogs. Sensitize yourself and others towards this noble cause of celebrating Diwali in harmony with nature. That's all we got to put in words. Click here to know more...

Once again, Have a Very Happy, Safe and Green Diwali.

Aided by the efforts of Education International to appreciate the efforts of teachers and express gratitude towards them, On 5th October 1994, UNESCO inaugurated World Teacher's Day.Every year, Education International launches a public awareness campaign to highlight the contributions of the teaching profession.

On a more thankful note, I take this opportunity on the behalf of all the students to THANK our dearest teachers, for the innumerable ways through which they guide us and make our life truly meaningful. Without you, we could not have been the way we are today ( I could not have put up my feelings in words, otherwise!). We could not have made it this far... A heartfelt thanks for everything.

Teachers Turned Students !

Dear all

Today, on 3 October 2009, a workshop for teachers was organized in our School. Eminent educationists and teachers' trainers Prof. B. L. Handoo and Dr. Subhash Arora graced the session and shared some rare teaching methodologies with our teachers.
Prof. B. L. Handoo and Dr. Subhash Arora

"Capacity and competency building of teachers" was how it was tagged. About 40 teachers enthusiastically attended it to hone their teaching skills.Someone put it right-"Who dares to teach must never cease to learn..." and hence, it ought to be a great learning experience for all the teachers. It was a unique opportunity for all the teachers present to update and upgrade themselves for the sake of their students. The workshop was a real encouragement to move forward...take a leave from the traditional methodology of chalk and talk. Anecdotes and stories helped a lot.

The interactive environment helped to discuss and eventually discover the solutions for the problems put up by the teachers. Every teacher (who became a student there!) was given chance to express and share his/her views.

The trainers discussed about emotional quotient (E. Q.), learning styles, basic skills of teaching, effective teaching tips, and 7 C's of the teaching-learning process as Communication, Content, Confidence, Clarity, Coherence, Computer literacy and Continuous updating.

They also told about the sources available such as websites and books one must read in this ever lasting process of attaining another level of greatness.

Following are some golden words which made the day all the more lovely :

* The mediocre teacher tells, Good teacher explains, The superior teacher demonstrates, The great teacher inspires.
* Good teachers have good sense of humor, have a command of the content they teach , set high expectations for their students and hold the students to those expectations, are good managers of time, can lead or follow, as the situation demands, don't take things as granted.
* You learn to teach by teaching, by making mistakes, learning from them and improving.
* "When my attitudes are right, there's no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me."

And these are some of the expected qualities in a teacher : Creativity, Flexibility,Confidence,Patience,True compassion for their students, Understanding,The ability to look at life in a different way and to explain a topic in a different way,Dedication to excellence, Willingness to help student achieve,Pride in student’s accomplishments, Passion for life, Open to Change and finally a Good Sense of Humour.

We are really thankful to Prof. B. L. Handoo and Dr. Subhash Arora for their inspiring words.We hope to have them amongst us yet again as each moment spent in their company had something to teach us...

Dear all

"A nation's culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people."

Today is the 140th Birth Anniversary of the apostle of peace and the father of the nation, none other than Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi or just 'Baapu'. Born on 2 October 1869 at Porbandar in Gujarat, Gandhi was the pre-eminent political and spiritual leader of India during the Indian independence movement. He was the pioneer of satyagraha-resistance to tyranny through mass civil disobedience, firmly founded upon ahimsa or total non-violence.

He summed up the entire philosophy of his life as: "The only virtue I want to claim is truth and non-violence. I lay no claim to super human powers: I want none".He is officially honoured in India as the Father of the Nation; his birthday is commemorated as Gandhi Jayanti, and worldwide as the International Day of Non-Violence.

He taught us a lot, and will continue to do so till the eternity. His words and his thoughts will live on forever with us. We need to reaffirm his ideals in today's world and hence witness the magic ...

Happy Dussehra

Dear all

We wish you all a very Happy Dussehra. It is an auspicious day for all of us.This day marks the glorious triumph of good over bad; God over Evil. This very day inspires us to always do the right things, no matter how the circumstances shape up. This day keeps us going.

Factually, it is a festival celebrated in varying forms across Nepal and India. It is celebrated on the tenth day of the bright fortnight (Shukla Paksha) of the Hindu autumn month of Ashvin or Ashwayuja, and is the grand culmination of the 10-day annual Navaratri (Sanskrit: नवरात्रि, 'nine nights') festival.It is one of the very important & fascinating festivals of India. The 'Ramlila' - an enactment of the life of Lord Rama, is held during the nine days preceding Dussehra. Dasha-Hara is also treated as Vishwakarma Divas - the National Labor Day of India.

The history of Dussehra is an ancient one and derives its origin from a number of popular legends found in the scriptures.On this day, Shri Ram, killed the great demon Ravan who had abducted Ram's wife Sita to his kingdom of Lanka.The war against Ravan lasted for ten days.Rama had the blessings of Durga to kill Ravana.

In Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Western Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, it is traditional to plant barley seeds in earthen pots on the first day of Navrathri. On the day of Dussehra, the nine-day old sprouts (called noratras or nortas) are used as symbols of luck. Men place them in their caps or behind their ears.

Signing off on a very optimistic note... Enjoy !

Birth Anniversary of Bhagat Singh

Deal All

Born on 27th September, Bhagat Singh was one of the most prominent faces of Indian freedom struggle. He was a revolutionary ahead of his times. By Revolution he meant that the present order of things, which is based on manifest injustice must change. Bhagat Singh was greatly attracted towards socialism. He realised that the overthrow of British rule should be accompanied by the socialist reconstruction of Indian society and for this political power must be seized by the workers.

“Sarfaroshi Ki Tamana ab Hamare Dil mein Ha.
Dekhna hai Kitna zore Baajune Quatil mein Hai.”

He differed from his predecessors on two counts. Firstly, he accepted the logic of atheism and publicly proclaimed it. Secondly, until then revolutionaries had no conception of post-independence society. Their immediate goal was destruction of the British Empire and they had no inclination to work out a political alternative. He gave revolutionary movement a goal beyond the elimination of the British. A clarity of vision and determination of purpose distinguished Bhagat Singh from other leaders of the National Movement. He emerged as the only alternative to Gandhi and the Indian National Congress, especially for the youth. Bhagat Singh gave a new direction to the revolutionary movement in India.

10 ways on How to Be The Change and Make A Difference

1. Be aware and vigilant: The first way by which you can be the change is by being aware of your surroundings. You must always know what is happening in your society, locality, or even your neighborhood. This does not mean that you enter some one's personal domain. You must know what are the local issues?, what are the problems your area faces?, what kind of crimes are being committed?, what is the local police doing? and even issues like, does your neighbor beat his wife (Domestic Violence)? And most importantly, be aware of what those related to you feel.
Be aware of the various things going on in your city, develop a perspective and voice yourself.

2. Look at things from a positive perspective and be hopeful: One must always develop optimism and preach positivity in life, as, in optimism, is the key to success. Being disheartened by the way the local authorities or even the national ones work will be of no help. It is the positive attitude which led India to its biggest victory in 1947. Need I say more?

3. Be Logical and Practical, not Emotional: Looking at things from an emotional view might help in a million cases, but there are a billion cases which need to be dealt with logic and practicality. For instance, when 26/11 occured, the youth, out of outrage, demanded an attack on Pakistan. This was a demand out of emotions but was no where logical. Pakistan, being a nuclear state could have done equal, if not more, damage to us. And, the decision would not have been in national interest. So, being logical and thinking out of the box (unlike a mob) is essential for your development.

4. Do Not discriminate: Discrimination is still prevalent in India. The need of the hour is to shun discrimination for a better nation and this is possible only when we improve at a personal level. When we look at minorities as equal, when we consider the gender differences to be none, when we look at the poor as human, when we treat them like one, when we forget that the word 'caste' exists, when we love all religions, only then can we hope to cast an impact on others. Always remember that no person is more or less.

5. Be equal, feel equal, do equal: This one is more or less similar to the one above. Do not let personal gains or favours take over the feeling of public good. We are all the same and deserve as much as you do.

6. Be firm about your beliefs and principles: Do not let the other person's thoughts influence yours. If you believe in a concept then be firm about it. This can be said in the case of voting, do not let anyone elses pressure hamper your vote. Other instances can be quoted, like, do not indulge into acts of smoking, alcohol, substance abuse, eve teasing, just because your peers do it. Be different. Only then can you make a difference.

7. Self development and improvement is the key: Rather than indulging in acts which lead to no good, indulge in activities of self development. It is rightly said that 'an empty mind is a devil's workshop'. Do not let your mind enter the dark side. Your actions must be positive. Learn from your experiences and enjoy what you do.

8. Spread the word and persuade others: Let others know of their rights, spread the word among your peers and relatives, make them aware of their surroundings, help them to think practically, make them aware on how they can make a change, rather, WHY should they make a change? The country needs us as a group working together. Let them know these facts.

9. Feel free to approach the authorities: We often stay silent when we see an accident or a theft. But why? We must dial 100 or any other local helpline and inform the local authorities. There is no harm in calling the police and according to a Supreme Court law, the police cannot hold the caller responsible for anything and cannot interrogate him/her forcefully until and unless the call is hoax. This also implies in the case of broken-down roads, bad traffic, water facilities, sanitation, housing and many others. Do not feel awkward in making the local MP or the municipality accountable.

10. Do your bit, be vocal: The best and the most powerful right bestowed upon us by the makers of the law is the right to speech. Make use of it and voice yourself. Let your voice be heard. Be vocal when addressing your problem. But this certainly does not mean giving hate speeches. If you have a problem, an issue of concern, an issue close to your heart and you want the world to know about it, then why keep quiet? Let your voice be heard. Join forums, communities, contact the MP's and leaders (who now have websites and blogs) and comment. Comment on articles, videos, newspapers, channels, and let them know what you feel. Make a difference, take charge.

By following the above listed 10 points, you will certainly be on your way to making a difference. Not only will you be a hope for others, you will also be self motivated.

So, as I always say, Voice Yourself.Not only Think the Change,its time to Be the Change!

Prabhat (E-member)

Eid Mubarak !

Dear all

First of all ... Eid Mubarak to all our readers, fellow bloggers and everybody else out there.

Eid ul-Fitr or Id-ul-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.Eid is an Arabic word meaning "festivity", while Fiṭr means "to break fast"; and so the holiday symbolizes the breaking of the fasting period. It is celebrated after the end of the Islamic month of Ramadan, on the first day of Shawwal.

Eid ul-Fitr is a day long celebration and is sometimes also known as the "Smaller Eid" .Muslims are commanded by the Qur'an to complete their fast on the last day of Ramadan and then recite the Takbir all throughout the period of Eid.Common greetings during this holiday are the Arabic greeting ‘Īd mubārak ("Blessed Eid") or ‘Īd sa‘īd ("Happy Eid"). Public Eid prayers are held in every Mosque and in public places.The Takbir is recited after having confirmation that the moon of Shawwal is sighted on the eve of the last day of Ramadan. It continues until the start of the Eid prayer. The biggest prayer is held in Mosalla (a spacious place for prayer) where the Supreme Leader leads the prayer.

Again...wishing you all a very happy Eid. Enjoy !

Class XII marks may play key role in IIT entry

Dear all Marks scored in the Plus Two board examinations are likely to become a key determining factor in addition to performance in the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) for admission into the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) by 2011.
In a couple of months, a pan-IIT committee, to suggest reforms to JEE, is expected to submit its report recommending ways to factor in the marks scored by students in higher secondary examinations while preparing the IIT merit list."We hope to devise a methodology to compute a normalised Plus Two cut-off eligibility score for each educational board (CBSE, ICSE, and State Boards). If it's approved, then only students who have scored this cut-off mark would become eligible to appear for JEE,'' IIT Madras deputy director V G Idichandy,said on Monday. The present eligibility norm of an aggregate score of 60% in Plus Two determined by the IIT standing council, as opposed to 85% recommended by a JEE review committee four years ago, is considered too poor a benchmark.

The move comes in the backdrop of widespread concern among top academicians over the current IIT admission system which is entirely dependent on JEE scores and ignores the board examination results. However, the even more difficult part is to convince authorities of all the boards to declare Plus Two results within a specified time frame every academic year.

Idichandy acknowledged JEE can't be abolished ``but we want to give as much importance as possible to the performance of students at the school level'' in IIT admissions.
