With July

Arrives, the Monsoon

But it’s not only the monsoon season

   It is also the season of the king of fruits

Also the eleventh day of the month is celebrated as World Population Day

Hello Readers!

This month we are back with some fun write ups by the children. July is a respite from the scorching heat of May and June. When the Monsoons  arrive the umbrellas are out. Children enjoy when they experience and feel the first shower spell of the monsoon rains.

But enjoyment is always temporary. There are bigger concerns for us. The eleventh day of the month is celebrated as World Population Day. The rate at which population is increasing in our country is alarming. India has become the second largest populated country of the world and if adequate steps are not taken we might be the most populated country in the world in the coming years.  Come to think of the consequences!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So let’s see what our children have to share on these topics.

But hold on. Do not miss out on the important tips for the Monsoons.

Some Health Tips & Precautions to be taken during Monsoons:

The monsoons are a welcome change from the sweltering summer heat, but they bring some very unwelcome guests which must be avoided at all costs.

We’ve all heard this before – to stay healthy and happy in the monsoons, we must take precautions during rainy season. And we’re not just talking about staying away from water logged areas or eating street food. We’re talking about overall health tips for rainy season which can make the weather even more enjoyable.

So here are some Essential Monsoon Health Tips to Safeguard You This Monsoon:

  • Follow a healthy diet.
  • Drink enough water, regardless of your activity levels.
  • Avoid walking in the rain. 
  • Keep clear of damp indoors
  • Don’t leave home without a mosquito repellent:
  • Bathe twice a day

So dear readers take care and enjoy the month with mouth-watering mangoes and other dishes you can lay your hands on.


Best Regards,

The fifth month of the year reminds us of

Mom, how wonderful you are!
So gentle, but still so strong.
For me you always care
Which makes me feel that mothers like you are rare

You are patient with me in everything
You give me guidance whenever I need
It seems you can do  anything;

You're a dependable source of comfort;
And are my cushion when I fall.
You help in times of trouble;
Mother you always support me whenever I call.

I want you to know
That my love for you everyday grows 
So let me wish and celebrate more and say as loudly as I can that

East or West





Dear Readers

⇒ Mothers Day is celebrated every year with a lot of enthusiasm. It is a celebration to honor the lovely mothers, to pay respect to the maternal bond and also to express the influence mothers have on our society.

⇒ It’s not about presenting bouquets of flowers or showering gifts and cards to prove that they have fulfilled their obligation .Mothers love for their children is infinite.



⇒ So dear friends, honour your mothers by expressing your love for them in various ways.

⇒ The size of the traditional family has become smaller. The reasons are Socio- Economic  which have brought about changes in the attitude of individuals towards joint family. We now have more nuclear families. Do our children still possess those values and morals in them when they were more close to their grandparents? Do they still miss the bed time stories narrated by their grandparents? Lets hear it straight from the Bloomians.

⇒ The topic for this month for our Back to Basic Series is: “Joint Family System versus Nuclear Families”

⇒ This month our edition is dedicated to all the great mothers. Let’s see how our children express their love for their mothers….it will be like a treat when mothers realize how their loved ones have expressed their feelings for them.

⇒ We will also  go through the views of the children whether they prefer staying in a joint family system or do they prefer Nuclear families.

Mom, it's not just a three letter word ;it has a lot more to it and whatever it is , it is indefinable...The sacrifices that they do for us is something we can never repay them for...If a father's hug can make us forget our problems but a mother's hug can defy all the problems...Whatever problems are going on with her or in the family she never lets us feel about it...A mother always supports us when we are right and she also tells us when we are wrong because she does not want us to repeat the same mistakes she did...A mother is our first friend,Our best friend and our forever friend...A mother's place cannot be taken by anyone but she can fulfill anybody's place...The word mother has an altogether different essence to it... Though at times  I misbehave with her a lot but at the bottom of my heart I love her a lot...Love you mom and sorry for everything...


A mother, according to me , is someone whose role cannot be defined in a few words. She plays so many roles in this humongous world, just to see those beautiful smiles on the faces of her near and dear ones, just to see them living their lives in solace. My mother ,as well ,is one such person, whom I admire the most. Yes, I know that she has sacrificed a lot of things for me. She has always stood by me, whenever needed ,she gives me the assurance that don't worry, everything will be fine. She has largely influenced my life, that too, just with her presence. Seeing her struggle and her determination to succeed in each of her tasks, she inspires to bring out the best in me, to give everything into the task assigned to me and perform it faithfully. She inspires me to thrive in this hugeandt difficult world ,to live it to the fullest!

Thank you

Joint family is considered bigger compared to a nuclear family because it includes grandparents, 

parents, uncles, aunts, cousins, in-laws etc.

         Advantages of joint family;-

  • Young parents will get assistance of fellow family members to raise their children
  • A kid’s interaction and attachment with their grandparents is a very special relationship. In a joint family the children will get more love and affection as well as special attachment with the grandparents.
  • In a joint family there will be less load of earning money for a particular member as the rent, water and electricity bills, payment of grocery items will/may be distributed
  • People in joint families have a lot of support in times of difficulty. There will always be a person with whom you can share your problems  and a shoulder to cry on.
  • There is a less likely chance that a family member will suffer from loneliness and depression.
  • People of joint families are easy to mingle with and may have a active social life.
  • Functions, festivals and family gatherings may be super fun and enjoyable as you can laugh and talk with your family over the celebration.
  • Members of the family sustain daily needs even if a family member loses its job
  • The family members will learn to adjust according to the situations from childhood


  • There will be more chance of conflict for sharing household chores, financial responsibility etc.
  • There will be less privacy as there are a lot family members.
  • It will be hard to make a decision as there are a lot of members and each of them have a different point of view
  • The younger family members may feel that the elder members are imposing decisions on them and they don’t have a say in them.
  • Members may feel that elders are imposing age-old beliefs which are irrelevant.

Nuclear Family
A nuclear family is a small family consisting of parents and their children.


  • There is more privacy for the children in the family
  • It is easy to convince everyone as there are less members
  • There is more gender and other types of equality in the family as there are no elders imposing age-old beliefs.
  • The children in nuclear families are more independent and free- minded and may be responsible enough.
  • These children can easily and mingle and sustain when they migrate to different places.
  • Parents can save money as there are less expenses


  • If both parents are working, it will be difficult to manage the children as well as create a bond with them and inculcate good habits.
  • The children may feel isolated and lonely.
  • Children may get spoilt and may be under the influence of bad friends and habits
  • Children may leave their parents after they start earning and may not care about them at all.


Definition : -

  1. NUCLEAR FAMILY - Parents and their minor children who live under one roof. An example of nuclear family is mom, dad and their children.
  2. JOINT FAMILY - A joint family is an extension of the nuclear family (parents and dependent children). A joint family involves much more than people living under the same roof.

NEUCLEAR FAMILY – Advantage: -

  1. Nuclear family make members of family more responsible as there are no support of Grandparents who always ready to grant helping hand.
  2. Nuclear family has less financial needs.
  3. Nuclear family has less quarrels and personal vendetta so fewer problems occur.

NUCLEAR FAMILY – Disadvantage:-

  1. Young couples face difficulties in upbringing their children.
  2. Couples don’t get a chance to learn anything from elders.
  3. Children don’t get proper love and affection from elders.
  4. Couples patience due to distance from in-laws.


  1. They learn to give and take, to be patient, cooperative, tolerant and to adjust with the other family members.
  2. Kids will have the guidance and support of grant parents. On the other hand, elderly patients get support and care of children.
  3. Joint family has more people so more support in case of Crisis.
  4. Joint family is wealthier as more earners are in place and joint family is cost effective due to shared financial responsibilities.
  5. Joint family increase affection and love between family members.
  6. Members of joint family reduce the chances of loneliness and depression.

JOINT FAMILY – Disadvantage:-

 As several members live together, there will be plenty of conflicts in sharing house hold work and financial responsibilities etc.

  1. Tough to reach a consensus because of the number of people involved.
  2. There will be less privacy for everyone in the family.
  3. Financial pressure if earning member has to support double the number of people due to lazy members of the family.

MY choice: - Both types of families have their own advantages and disadvantages. People choose to have nuclear family or joint family depending on their situation. I personally like joint family because joint family is training ground for the future generations to learn and develop skills of living in harmony with other citizens in society.


The Oxford Dictionary defines a mother as ‘a female parent or a person who cares for a child’. That is a very basic definition of a mother. In reality,the role of a mother is so much more complicated than that. The journey of a mother begins with the miracle of life. Many people believe that giving birth is the hardest thing that mothers have to do. Although this pool of thoughts has many of supporters, it doesn’t even begin to cover what challenges mothers have to overcome every day.

So, what exactly is a mother? A mother is a superhero. She feels love towards her child, fear that her child will get hurt, feels anxious for the challenges her child has to face, trusts that her child will do their best and achieve amazing things, joy of having a child, and so much more… A mother’s love is pure, it has no bounds. There is no incentive required by a mother to love her child. And due to that pure, that true love, a mother always wants what is best for her child, no matter what the situation may be. The relationship of a child and a mother is a very complex and versatile. It ranges from being an authority figure, an idol to a confidant and even a best friend.

Mothers sacrifice so much for their children every day, and almost ironically children celebrate one day, one day in the entire year, dedicated to their mothers and their motherhood. Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May. On this day, children honour mothers by showering them with gifts, cards, love, etc. Living in the 21st century, racing against time, it almost feels fitting that children are only able todedicate on day to their mothers. Although one day toremind mothers how much they are loved by their children doesn’t seem fair, something is better than nothing. A day completely devoted to mothers and their joy is a fantastic day to celebrate. So let’s not forget all that our mothers do for us and cherish them life immemorial.

Back to school again

New Learning is always fun

So welcome April with a smile on your face.


  Hello Readers!

  • Nature works in a beautiful rhythm. We breathe continuously, the sun rises and sets, night is followed by another day, seasons come and go and so do the years. We have just completed a cycle and have started another new session. So students welcome the session with lots of new hopes and aspirations.
  •  They are excited about new classes, new books, new friends and so many other new beginnings.
  • This session we are introducing:::::
  •  “ BACK TO BASICS” series. Under it we will cover topics related to this every month.
  • E-readers and tablets are a part and parcel of Future Classrooms. Children's reading habits are deteriorating due to apps, games and social media.
  •  But research suggests that reading on paper still boasts unique advantages.
  • In this digital age, Are books or e-books preferred by our children? Let’s hear what they have to say...
  • During the month the students  welcomed Ms Olga Dimetrieva who was the coordinator for the International School Project, from our partner school in Russia.  She visited the school to interact with the students and teachers about the success of the Project
  • We are also pleased to inform that an exclusive corner has been allocated for any article or poem that the Students want to contribute. We eagerly await your views on the current edition of the C2 at

In this digital era, it is important for us to educate young minds in a such a way that they enjoy doing their work/study. Nowadays, students are more addicted to or like playing games or in that case do anything that is related to a gadget. So it becomes a great responsibility of the government, schools, parents etc. to teach the students  to learn without a computer, phone, or any other gadget. But it is too late for that. This generation has already made themselves dependent enough on technology. So it is now the responsibility of the schools and the government t teach children in a such a way that they get to learn with the technology. Technology is not that bad of an invention, it is the use we make of it. Anything more or less is harmful, we should know the right amount of its usage. So if the young generation wants to learn with technology, we should teach them in that way. 
Everything has a benefit as well as harmful effect. In the case of education with technology the benefits are:-
1. With visual representation of a concept, the child is prone to remember the concept for a longer period of time. And it also improves your long term memory 
2. With the speed of communication, any doubts or queries can be cleared with a click of a button 
3. Visuals help learners to aid better comprehension 
4. Pausing and rewinding allows learning to be flexible. 
5. The visual learner enjoys the graphics and the pictures, which develops the urge to study with pleasure and interest 
6. Makes it easy to imagine the solution 
7. Visual learning helps to see the big picture
8. It uses story telling as a method of teaching which is an effective way to master a concept/subject
9. Educational videos are the perfect self study learning tools 
10. It saves time of the faculty to draw and write notes to explain the concept 
Sometimes the precautions should be taken while educating through technology. Some of the disadvantages of visual learning are:-
1) During visual learning videos the mind usually tends to wander off 
2) Sometimes while looking at the picture, young minds miss on the small and important details 
3) Visual learning requires equipment which everybody might not have, so it is a bad method for the underprivileged 
4) Visual learning may make the learner quite and less interactive 
5) Visual learning might not be suitable for visually challenged people. It can also harm the tender eyes of small children 
6) Unsuitable visuals = unhappy learners
7) The internet is a big place, the child may get distracted while learning and surf some other websites which may be unsuitable 
8) The learner may face it hard to focus on a particular thing later on 
9) The mind and body may not be well synchronized while they grow up 
10) The child may be addicted to only learn through visual learning 

I personally would prefer e-books because first of all they are really easy to carry and  the books that we use today take up a lot of space and then there might not be enough space for another book whereas in an e-book we can download as many books as we want without it taking up any space...Secondly , the books we use today cause wastage of paper whereas on the other hand we can download e-books on our devices and read them whenever we want...This way we can read any book according to our mood without even carrying it...So we don't need to leave any of our stuff behind just to make space for a book and we get more  options of reading...Another helpful feature of an e-book is that we can extract the reference and meaning of a word to which we are not familiar...The one feature which I find similar in both is that the books can be recycled and shared with others whereas e-books can also be deleted once read to free up the space...

Even after saying that I would prefer e-books over normal books the feeling of reading a book can only be received from a normal book...

Dear Readers, 
February the shortest month of the year, feels like the longest. Days are still short, however each day seems to linger far too long. 
The reason being the end of the academic session  and preoccupation with exam preparation.

The session is almost about to end and so let’s all pledge to put in our best to achieve the best one can. It is not entirely about hard work, rather you must understand this that more important is to Work Smart, Not Hard.

For Class 6th to 9thth
Do you think Examinations are important in life to achieve Success ?
Do you think tuitions are necessary for success in exams and why?
For classes 1st to 5th
Do you think we should have exams in all subjects? If not why?
Who helps you to prepare for exams and how?

We also welcome sketches/self - composed poems/articles on any topic of your choice for ‘MY CREATIVE CORNER.’
ALL ENTRIES TO REACH US BY 20thof February 2019 at

a time for introspection of the session gone by…….
Labor, hard work and patience is essential for achieving success

This month is all about getting organized and preparation for the exams which are around the corner .  
Where there is a will there is a way  and you will come out with flying colors.  What is more important and challenging is that preparation is not a one-time agenda. Regularity, consistency and perseverance matter to do well .

What should one do…………..

1. Pay attention in class as good studying starts in Class 
2.Take good notes = Easier Studying

3.Plan ahead for tests and projects and you'll be glad you did

4.Manage your time well
5.Ask for help if you get stuck as your learning will become easier
6.The most important of all you should get a good night's sleep!
7. Let ,media ,mobiles and other gadgets take a back seat…..

Dear children,
According to H W Longfellow

Let us, then be up and doing
With a heart for any fate; 
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait

So dear readers, let’s now go through what the students have to share about how well are they prepared for the exams.
C2 wishes everyone Happy Preparation Time……and All the very best.

Exams, the word  every child is scared of or at least most of them...I believe that exams are not necessary to achieve success in life because it does not matter if you study just  for an exam, give it and after giving the exam you forget everything...I think that exams don't test our knowledge, they test our memory...I think that rather than exams we can have oral interactions and do activities related to the particular subject...It's just an unnecessary stress that is imposed on every child...And then we ask why are there so many students taking their lives. It's because of the pressure put on the students by our parents or teachers...I think success has nothing to do with exams...There are many examples of proving this like Cristiano Ronaldo-His teacher said that football will get him nothing to eat and today he is the world's best and richest athlete; Dhirubhai Ambani-The man who is the founder of  "Reliance Industries" from scratch  was not very good at school but look at him today; Azim Premji -The founder of "Wipro”, one of the biggest Companies of our country, scored very low marks...Now on the other hand if we see the engineers who are unemployed even after scoring good marks  prove that good marks do not define who you become...An educated man can also become a criminal and a low scorer could be the next big success tycoon...I just want to conclude by saying that "It is education that is important because if you head out into the real world nobody is going to ask you how much you scored in your 9th class or the board exams. They are going to respect you if you are somebody who is rich and famous...
Bhavya Arya-8th B
In this competitive world there is pressure from all around be it
parents, teachers or peers. And to do well there is only one thing that
matters and that is “how well you prepare”. Any kind of exam does
make one anxious but if you are prepared well and your teachers have
put in their best then your confidence level increases. If you have
faith in yourself then nothing is impossible.
First of all preparation does not mean to study a month in advance before the exams. It should be
a consistent practice all round the year so that you are not burdened during the
exams. To do this prepare a timetable to study everyday and divide
time properly for the various subjects. Understand what you study and
don’t cram it. Ask doubts; write them down on everyday basis. Don’t
allow any distractions while studying. Take breaks and exercise, have
healthy discussions with people around you. These are just some of the
techniques to prepare and gain knowledge all round the year. Exams
can be stressful, but preparing in this way can help manage stress and
allow you to perform your best. Confidence comes when we are
well prepared , have faith, have blessings and are calm and confident. It
is said that only with a peaceful mind, you can be efficient in your
actions. Each one of us is unique in our own way.
 So in my view preparation should  not only be done  before the exams
rather it should be a lifetime process. So a little discipline, some hard work, and a
regular timetable goes a long way.



Dear Readers,

The month of JANUARY is all about RESOLUTIONS .  The month signifies that time has come to WELCOME 2019 with hopes of setting new goals and completing new tasks.  This is a time when we make New Year’s resolutions.  We could make some decisions about the things that we have been thinking about .  So let’s pledge to keep our eyes and mind open  and resolve to do something better and meaningful this year.

Whether it be changing attitudes, behaviour or saving the environment.

 For Class 3rd to 9thth

Write in detail or illustrate your New Year Resolution ?

We also welcome sketches/self-composed poems/articles on any topic of your choice for ‘MY CREATIVE CORNER.’

  ⇒ It is the beginning of a New Year-2019.  A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked,     new answers to be discovered and new decisions to be embraced and followed. In this transformative year of delight and self- discovery only dreams give birth to change. 

⇒ Setting and achieving goals is an excellent way for kids to learn responsibility. As the New Year approaches it is a perfect time for the children to set their goals. It is a general trend that with the Beginning of a New Year there is always a New Year Resolution!!!!!!!!

⇒ What are New Year Resolutions?

⇒ A New Year resolution is a tradition, common all over the world, in which a person resolves to change an undesired trait or behavior, to accomplish a personal goal or otherwise improve their life. Well, now it’s your chance to sit down and prepare a list of important changes you want to make.


⇒ To be more organized, punctual, disciplined and bringing about a change in all aspects life.

These sure shots are definitely going to bring about a great change in your lives. So, make a pledge to follow and apply these mantras the whole year through and feel better with each passing day.


So, dear readers, let’s now peep into what we have to express regarding our 2019 RESOLUTION

C2 wishes everyone A Very Happy and rewarding 2019 ahead!!!!!!! May it bestow upon you all the good luck, health and cheer.


We make resolutions every year they are made basically to correct the mistakes we have done in the past year. We also make resolutions to do things in a better and organized manner than the previous year.

So this year my resolution is to be more systematic and organized in my work. Another area that I would like to improve is with regard to the excess time spent on screen and internet. I would like to make that time more productive. Thus by making resolutions and then following them we get a chance to finally get rid of some old habits and make positive changes in our daily life. New year resolutions are for our own achievements that we can be proud of, and once we achieve them, they can influence and encourage us to do better the following year. New year resolutions are like a guide to tell you that you are going on the right path thus improving your abilities every year.



New year’s resolutions are a way of acknowledging your past year’s faults and ways that you can improve on them. However, I personally feel that new year’s resolutions don't have much of a point as many people don't follow up at all. Most new year’s resolutions fail by the third week of January.

Resolutions that are decided impulsively don’t work because there is a lack of commitment and people give up on them too quick. Also, there is pretty much no point in waiting for a whole year before you decide to make changes in your life, it can be done as soon as you make up your mind. New year’s resolutions are also goals, and though it is good to have goals, goals put a gap between where you are and where you want to be.

There is horrible timing as well since u have just got back from a vacation and are faced with a boatload of work and suddenly you plan to make a huge lifestyle change. For instance you decide to go to the gym. You will attend it for a few weeks and then suddenly realize that you are getting bored and quit.This happens to most people who decide to make a huge change in their life, they can't continue doing it after a period of time.

New year’s resolutions give a short time burst of motivation, but they don't make you follow up. So instead of making a new year’s resolution, come up with a plan to achieve small lifestyle changes that will eventually result in changes you’d like to see.


New Year’s Resolutions are what most people consider a key aspect to the start of a new year. People aspire to change some part of their behavior, a trait about their personality, or bring about a change in their system. I would have to say my resolution for 2019 would be time management. I feel like I’ve never been too good at managing and using my time properly which more often than not results in last minute hustles to complete assignments, and in worse case scenarios, not being able to properly study for an exam.

Time management is something everyone’s heard of but not everyone does it, probably because figuring it out in your head seems easier and less complicated than having to write it down somewhere, but from recent experience, it actually really does help. Simply writing down your assignments for the day and checking them off as you finish off is better for keeping track of your progress. Equally dividing your time for studying, homework, and free time also makes you feel accomplished. If you’re like me and tend to procrastinate a lot, then trying to follow a sort of schedule like this is a good idea. Of course, everyone has their own preferences, but you can always experiment and discover.

Like I said, my goal for this year is to manage my time better and figure out what my priorities should be in high school. These last few years in school are crucial for deciding what you want to do for your future. Depending on your preferences, people tend to prioritize certain subjects and topics over others. But, that doesn’t mean you give too less importance to others. I want 2019 to be a year that I can feel proud of, and I think giving equal importance to school, other goals, and my own happiness is the way I can progress towards achieving what I have planned for myself this year.

I hope 2019 turns out to be a happy and fruitful year for everyone, and with hard work and persistence I’m sure everyone can achieve their goals.




 My New Year Resolution

As we ring in the New year, most of us are excited about the changes we want to bring in our lives. It is so, maybe because we associate a new year with new beginnings and letting bygones be bygones , hoping for a better ‘self’ and a better tomorrow!

I too, have a short but realistic list of resolutions.To begin with , I truly want to accept myself as who I am, with all my perfections and imperfections . I will make a conscious effort to appreciate myself by use of daily affirmations. My second resolution is to learn to say ‘NO’.

For example , there are times when I have to finish my school work but a friend wants me to teach her a dance step and I out of my heart to help, am unable to refuse and then land up staying up late to finish my pending work thereby disrupting my sleep cycle.

 Another resolution I am determined to achieve is to sleep early and wake up early each day, which will make my mind and body ready to take up all challenges!

Last but not the least , I resolve to be more appreciative of all that I have in life and make gratitude my attitude.So here’s wishing myself luck and determination to fulfil my resolutions for 2019 and enter the next year as a person full of peace !

Any Goals I Had This Year?

It's the end of the year, and looking back at the tumultuous year that was 2018, most of us see some goals that, unfortunately, didn't see completion. Of course, always finding success is not possible. If some goals we had hoped to achieve just couldn't be pursued long enough, we should not let the failure dishearten us, but rather learn from the experience and continue working towards victory.

I hadn't set many major goals this year. My main goal was putting up a brilliant dance show, my Bharatanatyam arangetram, which turned out to be a gruelling journey yet also a raging success in the end. As for unaccomplished goals, I would say my goal of getting more into writing, and creating poems, short stories and perhaps even a short book, was barely focused on this year. But now that I have time after my dance show, perhaps I'll get into some serious writing very soon.

Something important that I would like to touch upon is what I learned this year, specifically from my dance show. Four months of rehearsals, that lasted for hours, were put into the two hour long show. I felt like giving up more times than I'd like to admit. The goal felt like it was too far, the path too rough, my fear and exhaustion too great. Many times I questioned my willpower, and whether it would come out at the other end, victorious. I told myself, "I should just quit"...

...and I never did. I panted and I cried and I bruised, but nevertheless my trembling legs bore me to the stage. On 18 November 2018, as I stood, sweating, on stage facing thunderous applause from the audience, every moment of pain was worth it. I can proudly say I never gave up. And this I woud like to say to everyone-

The journey might be easy, or it might be painful, taxing and utterly exhausting. The goal may seem impossibly far, but never take your eyes off it. The mountain you have to climb is no match for the strength of your arms, fueled by your intent.

Merry Christmas, and I hope Santa gifts you the courage to pursue any dreams left unaccomplished.



We all had made some resolutions on the starting of this year and we all tried to accomplish them for our own good. I also tried to accomplish my resolutions and also succeeded in some. But I couldn’t complete one resolution that I made for this year which is playing more than one sport. This is because my day is so packed with tuitions, basketball practice and yoga. I wish there were more than 24 hours in a day and with the ever growing competition and stress level it becomes difficult to accomplish all your goals but never the less I will try to follow my goals in the coming year. I believe a fit body is necessary for a healthy mind. To succeed one needs to be focused, make small targets, manage time accordingly and be a little strong headed.  


Hi! my name is Kaashvee and i am in class 8th and today i am going to tell you my view on the joyful month DECEMBER. December is a  month of joy 'n' happiness. Everyone's really excited for this month as one of the most awaited festival 'CHRISTMAS' is celebrated in this month.Me and my sister wait for this day because we receive many gifts from are relative's,a  game called 'SECRET SANTA'  is also played with friends,colleagues etc.Which really amazing the basic concept of this game is simple.All of the participants' names are placed into a hat, box, etc. and mixed up. Each person then chooses one name from the box, but doesn't tell anyone which name was picked. He/she is now responsible for buying a gift for the person selected.Another that makes the month of December more amazing is the 'NEW YEAR.' It is a special day for the people as this day is the beginning of the new year and they welcome the upcoming year in their own way. People start the preparations for the new year celebration many days earlier. People buy new clothes, gifts and many new things from the market. Shops are full of the crowd on these days. On the midnight of 31st December and on 1st January there is a celebration of New Year  all over the world. After the Christmas celebration people wait for the 31st night, that is the day when we recall’s all the good and bad memories of whole Year and say goodbye to the going year and welcoming the new year. People celebrate this day with music and dance. Children are very happy on this as they get lots of gifts and good food to enjoy the new year party.


 Dear Readers, 
There’s plenty to enjoy and feel happy about the month of 
November. It reminds us of the most important festival-------DIWALI. This is the time of the year when you go on a shopping spree. It is the Festival of Lights but  now  has become the Festival of Pollution. 
So let’s all take a pledge to enjoy a pollution free Diwali in 2018!

For classes 3rd to 5thth

Draft Posters to illustrate the ill effects of Diwali on our environment .

 For Classes 6th to 9th

How do you plan to make this Diwali  Pollution free?

There is lots to see and do in November month in India. The month comprises of some of the most significant  festivals of the country. The weather in this month starts becoming more cool and dry.  This month also incorporates some elating fairs that highlight unique traditions and characteristics of diverse Indian culture. The whole nation remains busy in celebrating different rejuvenating and auspicious fairs and festivals in this exuberant festive month. But along with these celebrations comes a lot of pollution. Such pollution happens every year, as offices and business houses shut down for India's biggest gift-giving holiday and many gather outdoors to set off powerful rockets at all hours of the night. Yes it’s Diwali we are talking about. Diwali is a lovely festival of lights, but the fireworks cause a lot of pollution, which is adding to the degradation of the environment. 
This pollution is like poison for all of us. And that is why we should all be held responsible for this state of our surroundings.  It’s high time that we all wake up. We should take up this responsibility by taking an initiative------- not to burst crackers and fireworks, even if it is  for just one day.  As denizens of India, we all must take a pledge to help protect our environment and to save our future generations. Let’s make an effort to breathe some fresh air. 

Crackers, crackers everywhere
No one to take care
No one has sound sleep 
As  pollution makes the earth weep

We are inhaling polluted  air
So there’s breathing problem everywhere

But our intention is still, why should “we” care?

Crackers are cocktails
people are under the effect of its intoxication
No doubt, Diwali is the festival of lights
So we first need to enlighten our mind
Look into the menace
And say a big NO to crackers!!!!!
We are sure  you  will keep your promise and take a pledge to celebrate a greener and fresh Diwali . Here’s wishing you all A Very Very Happy, Safe and Green Diwali………
So dear readers, let’s see  how our students have expressed their ways of celebrating Diwali this 2018…………….. 
⇒ Last month, we saw a vast change in our environment in Delhi. The pollution level had severely increased in a very short span of time. As Diwali approaches, we suddenly come up with the notion that a loosely planned, short term fix such as the cracker ban will solve a major long term problem. Last year, the supreme court banned the sale of crackers. However, Delhi was still blanketed by thick gray smog. 

The bursting of crackers certainly plays a major role in increasing air pollution. Nonetheless, we as a community have been bursting crackers for a very long time. The idea that Diwali can’t be celebrated properly without crackers is deeply ingrained in our minds, and it is not an easy task to uproot this idea. 

Even well educated people who understand that burning crackers is harmful to the air ignore this fact and let themselves be blinded by the bright lights that the chemicals in crackers offer. All of us know that every Diwali we will definitely be breathing horrid air. But still, we confine ourselves to the idea that, “next year it will be better”. God knows how long we have been saying that.

That being said, Delhi’s horrible pollution is not all due to crackers. Vehicles, construction, crop burning at this time, and industrial pollution are the major constituents. This Diwali, even if we burn green crackers as per the supreme court order, pollution will not go down. What we need are ‘more green deeds’ - use of public transport, better management of industrial pollution, and focus on reducing our carbon footprint throughout the year. If we hold ourselves accountable, we will have a better Diwali next year. On the other hand, this year won't be much better. So pack in for another thick-with-haze morning, a day after Diwali.

 Deepawali or Diwali is a festival of lights and is one of the biggest Hindu festivals celebrated with happiness and joy. It comes in the month of October or November on the 13 th day of dark fortnight of the month of Ashwin. It is celebrated in the memory of Lord Ram, Sita and Laxman after 14 years of exile. In earlier times Diwali was celebrated by lighting lamps and Diyas but now people major health issues like Asthama etc. 
I feel that there is no need to pollute the environment for our enjoyment. We must take steps to make ourselves and others aware of the harmful effects of burning crackers. So this year I decided to celebrate a pollution free Diwali and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I helped in cleaning the house,  bought gifts for family and friends, painted Diyas, helped my mother make sweets and savouries, decorated the house and made rangoli. 
I also planted saplings of floral plants and gifted some of them to my family members. On the Diwali day we worshiped Goddess Laxmi, Goddess Saraswati and Lord Ganesha and then placed oil filled Diyas all over the house. Lets pledge to celebrate Diwali as a festival of lights which illuminate our soul with positivity and happiness.
By- Advait Mathur VIII-B

So to start with these days there is a lot of pollution spreading around. Cars, buses, trucks are the major causes of this. This is a very important issue which must be addressed in the right way. Also Diwali is around the corner so it would definitely lead to excess of pollution. To control pollution in Delhi the most important step, one could take would be to just put lights in their houses and just celebrate it with family and friends and that would the only thing I would do this time. 

As a responsible citizen it is everyone’s right to look after the environment. I would also encourage my peer, not to burst crackers and instead play around, sing songs and enjoy the festival. The main problem pollution causes is that it prevents smooth driving, and smooth breathing. These two things are very fatal for one’s life so one should not play around with pollution.

OCTOBER is in and is almost the end of the year 
The month rings in festivals
Weather is pleasant  And a lot of enjoyment is around.  

 Everybody wants to sing and dance 
Relish sweets and savories.
So we look forward to this month
As it brings in warmth and goodwill. 


India is a land of diversity and festivals are celebrated with fervour. October ushers in a season of festivities that is both religious and social in nature marked with fun and enthusiasm.
So, C2 wants its readers to be aware of the festivals which are there in the month of: 
Gandhi Jayanti (October 2, 2018), Sharad Navratri (October 10, 2018), Durga Puja Festival (October 18, 2018), Dussehra (October 19, 2018), Kojagari Lakshmi Puja (October 23, 2018)  
So, dear readers, let’s  see  how our students have expressed their ways of enjoying festivals. 
In  Indian culture, there was a time when there used to be a festival every day of the year – 365 festivals in a year – because a festival is a tool to bring life to a state of exuberance and enthusiasm. That was the significance and importance of festivals. Festivals were different and differently celebrated across all the regions, depending upon that region’s geographical and climatic conditions. In the olden times, festivals meant break from school, time to feast, get new clothes, toys and catch up with your near and dear ones. 
 Diwali would be the time when our parents would be saving up to buy some new things for the house. Back then there was certain  a kind of innocence linked to the way in 
which we celebrated  festivals. It was more inclusive and even people with limited means could join in and enjoy the festivities. 
But with time, the advent of globalization and a booming economy has had an impact on the way of our festivals celebrations today. Today people have better pay and can afford to enjoy the luxury of buying new clothes, gadgets etc. throughout the year rather than wait for the festivals to make such purchases. Festivals have today become a time to flaunt your riches. Festivals celebrations have become more self-centered and are  moving away from its traditions. It is more of instant gratification now. The traditional way of festival celebrations is slowly taking a backseat now. The simple things that would give us pleasure in celebrating festivals back then no longer enthuse us now. Today the equation has shifted towards money. People are forgetting the true value and essence of celebrating festivals. All in all, we see that there is a huge difference in the people and the ways in which they celebrate festivals. So we should never forget that the true joy of festivals is by celebrating it together, not with wealth!

Celebrating festivals changed over the years: 
In Indian culture there was a time when there used to be a festival every day. According to the Hindu calendar, each day signifies different gods and goddesses, so according to each one’s faith and belief in a particular God- each day was a festival. For example- people celebrated poorn mashi, ekadshi etc which fall every day of the month, apart from the other festivals like Holi, Diwali, Ganesh Chaturthi etc. Earlier, these festivals were a joint family celebrations where it was carried on as a family ritual, according to their religions and passed on from generations to generations. But the scenario has changed now, as people of all religions celebrate festivals of each other’s community for example- a Christian will celebrate Diwali with the same enthusiasm as a Hindu will celebrate.
Thus, bringing together people from all walks of life. But at the same time it has become a trend to flaunt your riches by the upper class, thus creating disparity. And because of this celebrations have become more self-centered and moving away from its tradition. The traditional way of celebrating festivals has taken a back seat and the equation has shifted towards more money- grand celebrations. At some point of time people will forget the reason behind all these festivals and their traditional ways of celebrating festivals. Traditional 
festivals will lose their charm to Valentine’s day, Father’s day, Mother’s day etc all commercially driven. The good old ways of celebrating festivals were far better than the ugly show of wealth that our celebrations have transformed into. It is truly said that “ Change is the only constant but, somethings are better unchanged”.

(Bhavya Arya-8B)
Festivals are not only some religious celebration but it is like a party where people who have not met for years or for a while act like they are really happy to meet each other whereas from inside everybody's like "aise toh he does not have time to do my work  but he has the time to come here,  achhaaaaa".But festivals are also that time of the year when we once in a while enjoy with our relatives otherwise it is like "ye Kyun aaya hai"...I personally enjoy festivals alot and celebrate them with my family and friends.At this time of the year we eat alot, we play alot , we enjoy alot and  we have to do some unnecessary trash talk with our relatives as well. You can't deny it because we all have done it alot. But festivals are actually very popular in all parts of the country which may be because of many reasons but festivals are a way of enjoyment and that's  what is important. Why do we celebrate festivals only at certain times of the year why not everyday.

Some great person once said that:

Life is a festival , celebrate it every day, today it is there, tomorrow it might not be...

And that great person is me... Bhavya Arya...

Teachers are dedicated towards education
Not only because it is their passion
But also for the children’s liberation.
They are sincere, kind and have warm feelings
They guide and protect us under their wings.
They instruct, encourage and make us believe
That there’s nothing in life we cannot achieve.
They never think about their future and time
They work to protect us from conflicts and crime
So it’s time for all of us to get together
And wish and say


5th of September is the birth anniversary of our earlier President Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan who had requested to celebrate his birthday as the teachers day to respect teachers all over India. He was very fond of the teaching profession. ...Teacher's day is celebrated with great joy and enthusiasm by the students.
  On the occasion of Teachers Day, C2 would like to highlight on the importance of teachers in a student’s life
Students all across the country observe this day to pay respect to their teachers. It is truly said that teachers are like back bone of our society. They play a great role in building up the characters of students and shape them to become ideal citizens of India.
Teachers teach students carefully and sincerely just like their own children. Teachers are greater than parents. Parents give birth to a child whereas teachers shape his/her character and make their future bright. Thus students should never forget their contribution and should never ignore them.  Parents are responsible for giving their children love and quality care but  teachers are responsible for making their future bright and successful. They let us know the importance of education in our life through their continuous efforts. They are a source of inspiration and help us to go ahead and get success in life. They motivate children towards study by giving examples of great personalities all over the world. They make the children strong enough to withstand any obstacle of  life. They are full of immense knowledge and wisdom, using which they nourish children’s lives. 
So, come on my dear friends, lets say together that we respect teachers and we will always be grateful to them for everything they do for us. 
My dear friends we should always obey our teacher’s orders and follow their advice to be a worthy citizens of India.

It is rightly said:
“A Teacher can open the door,
But you must enter by yourself”
In this fast changing 21st Century world, the concept of teaching  has changed. As part of the changes the teacher’s role and authority in the classroom is also changing. In the past teachers used to be the major source of knowledge, the leader and educator of their students' school life.  They used to be the authority in the class, the main spokesperson and students were only passive listeners.  But nowadays, with  technology coming in there is a shift and teachers have taken the role of a facilitator. Instead of  leading  discussions  and being the loudest voice in the room, a facilitator allows and enables a discussion on a topic to happen whilst remaining neutral themselves. This is important so that children can lead their own learning, and allows them to deeply engage with what they are studying.

Even though the fundamentals on how to teach are shifting and changing with technology and media, one thing never changes. The impact a teacher can have on a child’s life.
‘The role of teachers is of facilitating, inspiring, storytelling, empowering and really seeing the classroom as a team of young individuals, as well as orchestrating the energy in a group. The role of the teacher is extremely important. The role of the teacher cannot be replaced with the rise of technology. 
The teacher is needed to assist and inspire their students, helping them to come to terms with what they are passionate about, discover what goals they want to achieve and to help them realise those aspirations. It also means that the teacher should neither be a passive participant, only facilitating the lessons, nor leading and dominating the conversation. 

S0,dear readers, lets  now go through  how our children have expressed their love and respect for their teachers. 


As we enter the big world, 
Knowing nothing,
They hold our hands like our parents.
As we grow,
Looking  for help,
They offer a hand of friendship.
When we get lost,
And we have no -where to go, 
They become the map of our cities.
Whenever we feel discouraged,
They always become our pillar of hope,
And help us fly higher.
The moment we walk on a wrong path,
They pull us back,
And show the way to a more beautiful path.
They might be tired,
They might be exhausted,
But they never let us know.
They are no one but,
A beautiful thing that god has made,
Someone who plays the role of every person in our lives
Yes, they are our teachers.
    Risha mathur-9th D


My favourite teacher Poem
Shakti ma’am is my favourite teacher 
‘The number one’
I’m happy that you were my teacher
I enjoyed each and every lesson you taught me
As my role model you inspire me
To dream and to work and to reach

With your kindness you got my attention;
Every day you are planting a seed
Of curiosity and motivation
To know and to grow and succeed 

You helped me fulfill my attention;
I’m thankful for all that you’ve done
I admired you each day, and I just want to say,
As a teacher, you are number one!

By Diva Mehta –VA, Bloom Public School

Role of Teachers
Over the last few years, we can say the role of teachers has changed drastically. Earlier teachers mostly used to be models who enforced discipline and strictness on students. Their methods of teaching were harsh and sometimes, violence was used to impart learning. However, with the changing times, teachers and their way of teaching have changed. 
Nowadays, being a teacher is more about being a guide to young children and teaching them moral values and giving them the ability to differentiate between right and wrong. Teachers treat student with love and affection and often, they are like a parent figure in school! 
However, the base of teachers remains the same. They are still the doors to knowledge for us students and will always have a respectful place in the world.

Kirti Bhushan - 9th D 


A teacher is greater than god. It is the teacher who guides us, shows us the path to God, lead us from darkness to light, from gloominess to enlightenment. He/she is our true friend, philosopher and guide. Teacher’s day is celebrated on 5th September every year in schools. This is celebrated as it is the birth date of India’s second president, Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishna. It is a special day for the appreciation of teachers. It is celebrated in schools and performances are staged like dancing, singing, acting etc which are performed by students. Senior students take the responsibility of teaching, in order to show their appreciation for the hard work that a teacher puts for their students. Students collect money and buy gifts for the teachers. In some schools students garland their teachers as a mark of respect and affection. The government honors the teachers in its own way. Teachers are conferred on ‘State Award’ and ‘National Award’. Students should respect their teachers; great teachers empathize with kids and believe that each kid has something special that can be built upon. Thus 5th September is a perfect day to thank them and wish them a happy teacher’s day.

India is a land of sages
Also known for bravery since ages
No one can with it compete
As its culture is unique
Be it any religion
All live here in unison.
From the famous rivers and fountains
It is a land of the mighty Himalaya mountains
Flora and Fauna here are in plenty
Resources are in abundance
And they are all a source of prosperity
So, all of us should strive
For its safety and be on guard from depletion

With the arrival of the month of AUGUST we are reminded of the endurance of great martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the country. Independence Day is an auspicious occasion for all Indians. August 15 is the most important day in the history of India. It is the day when we got freedom from the British rule after many years of hard struggle by the great freedom fighters of India.
So dear readers, take pride in being an Indian and  read how our children have expressed their love for a liberated and developed India. 


Gandhi and Khaadi

  It was a war that was won without a single gun being fired. The greatest imperialist power in the world was driven away from India by the strength of non violence. The prophet of Ahimsa ‘Gandhi’ made it possible. Apart from being a national leader he was also an entrepreneur and started Swadeshi movement of boycotting English products and popularizing ‘Khadi’. The handwoven or spun yarn was used to make cloth. Mahatma Gandhi started spinning himself and encouraging others also to do so. 
He further made the ‘Chakri’  

the symbol of Nationalist movement. He collected large sums of money to create a grass-roots organization to encourage handloom weaving. This was called ‘Khadi movement’. Today a total of 4,60,000 people are employed in industries making Khadi products. It has become a fashion statement today. 
Mahatma Gandhi is an inspiration for me and all of us for his with an extraordinary will to live his life according to the principles of truth. He is a role model for the new generation.
Today khadi is a big brand and India’s pride

Some Health Tips & Precautions to be taken during Monsoons:
The monsoons are a welcome change from the sweltering summer heat, but they bring some very unwelcome guests which must be avoided at all costs.

We’ve all heard this before – to stay healthy and happy in the monsoons, we must take precautions during rainy season. And we’re not just talking about staying away from water logged areas or eating street food. We’re talking about overall health tips for rainy season which can make the weather even more enjoyable.
Some here are some Essential Monsoon Health Tips to Safeguard You This Monsoon:

⇒ Follow a healthy diet

  • This is the season where the body and especially the digestive system are most prone to infections.
  • Diseases in the rainy season are mostly water-borne so make sure you only drink water that is     filtered or boiled.
  • It is also important to maintain a healthy diet in rainy season, which means that your favourite chaat, juices, golas,  kulfis and other street food are off the menu.
  • Preferably avoid raw vegetables and salads unless they are consumed at home where you can wash and clean them thoroughly.

⇒ Drink enough water, regardless of your activity levels

  • Do not compensate your liquid intake with carbonated, caffeinated, and alcoholic drinks and beverages as the preservatives and sugars in them act as diuretics. 
  • Herbal teas with antibacterial properties are a good idea.

⇒ Avoid walking in the rain

  • As much as it is tempting, walking in rain water makes you prone to a host of viral diseases such as leptospirosis and can also cause numerous fungal infections on the feet and nails.
  • Also, if your feet get wet, dry them immediately and do not stay in wet socks or shoes.
  • Diabetics especially must take extra care and avoid walking barefoot as the ground is rife with all kinds of germs.
  • If your clothes get wet, do not sit in an AC environment or change them immediately.
  • Keeping and carrying an extra pair of clothes and footwear  in your bag is a good idea.

⇒ Keep clear of damp indoors

  • Damp walls are home to fungus growth and an absolute no-no if you suffer from asthma or any other breathing problems.

⇒ Don’t leave home without a mosquito repellent:

  • Accumulated water is a breeding ground for insects and the monsoons are party time for malaria.
  • Always wear or carry a mosquito repellent.
  • The over cautious can take a dose of anti-malaria drugs.

⇒ Bathe twice a day.

  • A shower as soon as you reach home in the evening will insulate you against infections caused by the build-up of sweat and dirt due to humidity.
  • Take Vitamin C to boost your immunity.

⇒ Avoid touching your eyes:

  • Eye infections like conjunctivitis, stye, dry eyes and corneal ulcers are common during the monsoons.
  • This can lead to blindness if ignored. Refrain from touching eyes especially with dirty hands. Those who spend long hours in front of a screen – television or computer – may also experience redness, itching or irritation.
  • Consult a doctor immediately.

So dear readers take care and enjoy all the mouth watering mango and chocolate dishes you can lay your hands on.


Oh mother!
The most precious person in this world
But as ferocious as Lion; 
Scolds a lot
But for your own good- luck pot;
Struggled a lot to give a life you can cuddle;
Gives whatever you want;
But only after thinking whether it is good or not.
Oh mother!
You gave me so much love 
To make me a good person;
You work hard day and night
To make me a ferocious knight; 
You gave me good guidance 
So that I don’t take wrong decisions anytime.                          
Oh mother! 
The kind of love you’ve showered on me; 
Made me realise how much you care for me.                           
Oh mother!
You are the most beautiful women,
Whom I love!

                             MONSOON SEASON 

After the burning sun, dark and gloomy skies and pitter-patter of rain drops are a welcome change. After the scorching and relentless heat of the summer the aroma of rain in the air brings us back to life.  Monsoon also comes with cravings for delicious, healthy, hot food, hot beverages, samosa, pakora etc. Corn are the best part of rainy season and they make us love these days. Sitting at home, listening to the pitter-patter with family and eating our favourite food, what can be a better time than this? Today I am sharing our family’s one of the favourite food during this season.
1. 1 and a 1/2 cup suji
2. 1 cup curd
3. corn kernels 1/2 cup
4. 1 inch ginger [ grated ]
5. Finely chopped vegetables of your choice [ onions, capsicum, one grated carrot, green chillies]
6. Enough water to make a thick paste
7. 1 teaspoon baking powder
8. Salt and pepper to taste.
7. Oil for frying
Take suji, curd, salt, baking powder and pepper in a bowl and mix, add enough water to make a thick batter. Keep aside for 1 hour till the suji swells and becomes soft.
Now add all the vegetables/ corn etc.
Mix well.
Heat oil in a deep wok.
Put the flame on medium.
Drop the batter with a spoon in little quantities to make small balls. Fry till golden brown.
 Serve hot with your favourite chutney and masala tea.





Rain This Month
-By Avni Gupta, IX-D
Some of us laugh, in the rain this month,
As dust gives way to a clearer front.
And drenched as we are, our smiles are wide,
Now why would we wish to stay inside?
These are the days of muddy clothes and showers,
Of dancing in the fields, amongst the flowers.

Some of us cry, in the rain this month,
And hope pain gives way to a clearer front.
No, in this poem, I cannot lie,
Life is not always rainbows and smiles.
We hope the rain washes away our despair,
And gives the strength our hearts need to repair.

Some of us kick back and relax this month,
And watch the world give way to a clearer front.
Sitting by the window, we listen to the song
Sung by the raindrops, all day long.
We allow peace to consume our mind
And see what memories and dreams we can find.

United by monsoon, we are this month.
As dust gives way to a clearer front.

Hello Readers here comes the fifth month of the year again and that’s….

The moment this month is here again…..that’s May
It reminds the children only of one day…. that’s Mothers day
Children say that Mothers look after them with tender care
And whenever they want, she is always there
They say their mother makes good things to eat
And sometimes even give them candies for a treat
 The children feel, it’s not only this
In fact there’s much more to their bliss
Children want to celebrate this unique day
With a lot of enthusiasm and in a special way
They want to shout and say

East or West 
My mother is the best

Mothers Day is celebrated every year with a lot of enthusiasm. It is a celebration to honor the lovely mothers, to pay respect to the maternal bond and also to express the influence mothers have on our society. Mothers Day is not only about presenting bouquets of flowers or giving gifts and cards to them to prove that they have fulfilled their obligation. The expression of love of the children for their mothers is much more than that. If we only comprehend a tenth of what mothers do for their children and how they would literally do anything and go to any extent for them if needed, we would realize that a  day is not sufficient to honor them. The mother child relationship is sacred to the Bloomians. So our children want to honour their mothers by expressing their love for them in various ways. 
So dear readers…..this month our edition is dedicated to all the great mothers. Let’s see how our children express their love for their mothers….it will be like a treat when  mothers realize how their loved ones  have expressed their feelings for them.


C2 Celebrates…….Mothers’ Day

Dear children C2 wants to dedicate the month of May for the celebration of Mothers Day, so don your thinking hat and send us your write-ups on: MOTHERS

For Classes 6th to 9th.......

Definition of a ‘MOTHER’ and how she has influenced your life.


For classes 3rd to 5th

Draw and write a jingle or slogan about your Mother.

We also welcome sketches/self-composed poem/articles on any topic of your choice for ‘MY CREATIVE CORNER.’

A very happy mothers day to all. I absolutely love my mother very much. She is the key to my happy life. She is very funny  and enthusiastic and even though she is not that adventurous she still loves to watch movies with us.  I hope that on this special day she is blessed with sunshine, smiles, laughter, love, and happiness. I love her. A mother is one who understands the things we say and always overlooks our faults and sees the best in us. A mother is one whose special love inspires us day after day and who fills our heart with gladness in warm and thoughtful ways.  Mom is like a friend to you. She is also one of my first teachers. God has given me the most wonderful mother. All the mothers in the world have the treasure of a pure loving heart. The most precious thing in the whole wide world! HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO MY MOTHER AND ALL THE LOVELY MOTHERS OUT THERE!
(Yamini Iyer - VIIIth B)

May I take a moment just to say
Our mothers are our guiding lights, every day.
Their love, an oasis, in the desert's heat;
Heart, a sanctuary, peaceful and sweet.
Every one of us, in chorus we should say,
Remember, each day, is MOTHERS' day!

Definition of a Mother and How She Has Influenced My Life:
A mother is an irreplaceable figure in one’s life. She is the one who knows the best about her children. A Mother is always patient, organized and calm. She can do anything for her children.

In my experience, my mom can do anything for me. She helps me with my homework  and especially with Mathematics. The things which just seem impossible for me, my mom does it instantly and often tells me that nothing is impossible in life. We ‘can’ and ‘should’ do what we want to. 

She has influenced my life in a great way. She has always told me not to be scared of anything or anyone. We have to be firm and always happy with whatever decisions we make in our lives. We should never be afraid to express our thoughts, feelings or ideas…

 A mother, can she be defined? Can a word describe her diverse personality? I say, “NO”. I believe that I don’t have the right to judge her, because, she is one such person who is probably the closest to one’s heart. She, the one who faces endless number of challenges to bring us up , deserves to be given all the respect. She definitely deserves to get all the comforts. There are innumerable words, but, they are still not enough to describe her, because, she is different! She is totally a distinct character in the lives of people, having her own shades of black and grey . Every mother is different in her own style. Even my mom is, is distinct. She loves to get lost in her own world of music. She tries to find her happiness in her family and most importantly ‘Music’, her passion and second world! But, I like her the way she is. She is probably the only one with whom I share all my experiences and my feelings! In other words, she is my ‘WORLD’!
(Shinjini Sen - VIII A)

The second Sunday of May every year, is a very important day. A day to respect and celebrate our unsung heroes, who have nurtured, raised and protected us. I am not talking about our armed forces, but the soldiers at our homes- our mothers!The most important person in our life is a mother. She is the one because of whom I actually exist. So here is how I tried to show my appreciation for her.

On this day I didn’t allow her to worry about me getting up, brushing my teeth, taking a bath or even preparing for my guitar lessons. I infact made my bed & kept everything in its proper place.
I think I made her day by giving her the flowers she likes the most- red roses and white carnations. Then we went to eat outside at a restaurant where we gave her chocolates. After we returned home, a package containing a fancy cup and a cushion with “mom comments” was couriered from Budapest to her by my sister. That is how I think me and my sister made her day special for her.

I guess that it is not the fancy things that makes your mothers happy, it is the love and respect you give them. So, this mother’s day, you don’t need to buy her something, but can give everything she wants by listening to her.

Happy Mother’s Day
A mother is everyone’s best friend because she takes care of everything we need. So, to say thanks and give  respect to her, a day of the year has been dedicated to the mothers and is celebrated as Mother’s Day every year. We cannot live without our mothers and her caring love. She cares for us so much. She becomes happy when we laugh, and she becomes sad when we weep. She is the only one in this world who can never leaves us alone. She is fully devoted to us like no one else in the whole world. 
A mother has lots of responsibilities and she does them all continuously without getting tired. She is the one whose job is unlimited. We cannot give her anything in return but we all can thank her and give lots of respects and care to her. We should always love and care for our mothers and obey all her orders.
Immanuel - IXth C


A mother is someone who is our inspiration throughout our lives. A mother is-
M- Magnificent
O- Outstanding
T- Tender 
H- Humble 
E- Extraordinary
R - Remarkable
My mother has been an inspiration for me. Every moment good or bad she is the one who has always been
with me. My mother is my first teacher. She has always taught me how to respect others, be compassionate
and a good human being. She has always told me that what is good and what is bad. Whenever I feel
de-motivated, she has always motivated me. She works day and night taking care of all of us and not thinking
about herself. She always wants to see her children happy. A mother’s efforts are unmatched and cannot
be measured. We should not ignore and  disrespect a mother’s efforts. We should always respect our mother
and the efforts made by her. So, this mother’s day I will do something special for my mother and will try and
keep her happy the whole year. 
Advait - VIIIth B

This is what Tanmay   has to say....

Resolution For A New Session

Yayyy!!! New sesion has started and I can’t wait to get to know my new classmates and new teachers. I am pretty sure it’s gonna be a fantastic session and an awesome year. However new session doesn’t only mean fun for me. It means hardwork, focus and getting better and better at everything I do. I properly can’t remember, but I had made some resolutions before the session started. I think they were:

  1. To focus on academics and try to get the best marks.
  1.  Get better at sports.
  1. Taking participation in competitions and try to come First!
  1. Help those who need help.
  1. Leave a Good impression.
  1. Improve my bad qualities.

And last But Not Least:


With improving everything, I think masti should be also improved as masti is also a very important part of a student’s life. These are the resolutions that I have shortlisted but, the one that I will help not only me but also others will be:

Full focus on academics and try to get the best marks.

I think this will not only help me but it will help others as well as if people are having trouble understanding sometimes, then I can be there to help them so that they can excel and not have difficulties. Other than that I think sports is one of them to that I will try to improve also the most for my phsical self.

Therefore, I pledge that I will get better at everything and “I will beat the Best to be The Best”.

The team wishes all the best to Avni and Raunak for their endeavours.......both want to themselves.......they want to become better speakers.......

A New Session's Resolution

I have wanted to speak up, but held back still.
Now, other people shall hear what I say.
I lay bare my thoughts using poetry's quill,
Watch, as my words ring clear as day.
It has always been hard for me to speak up; I've always been quite shy and was never one to voice my thoughts. Recently, I've slowly started overcoming this obstacle.
Speaking up has become easier and I feel way more confident than ever before. My Resolution is to continue on my path and interact more, participate in group discussions
when I can, and become truly outspoken and social with others.
How does one bask in daylight's glory,
Cooped up in an isolated den?
No other shall write the words to your story,
It is up to you, to pick up that pen.
Everyone appreciates a quiet listener, but being a speaker is equally important. I encourage anyone out there who struggles to speak up in public, to try, try and try,
and learn to voice themselves too. Take baby steps, and remember, it will be worth it to have others hear your long-silenced voice.



Resolution is what we take when we want to change something. My resolution this year is to improve my speaking skills, become more capable of doing things and guiding others and the most important thing excel in academics. Often people are misguided or follow the wrong path. This leads to their failure. I would never want something like this to happen with me. This is the reason for my taking resolutions. People often take a resolution and forget about it, but I want to make sure that I do what I say. As the saying goes try and try but never cry. One should never leave the hope of succeeding in life.



My Resolution For This New Session (2018-19)

This is what Gayatri of 9th class has to share about her love for music.........







My Resolutions For This New Session (2018-19)

This new session, I have decided to fix many  aspects that mainly revolve around my social life and education. As last year was not one of my best academic years, I would like to improve my grades and prove to everyone that I am capable of doing much better. Knowing that math is one of my weak points, I have started working towards enhancing my mathematical knowledge and skills. I hope that this session I can prove to all my teachers, fellow peers and parents that I am capable of a fair number of things. 

Also, this session, I would like to cut off all ties with negative commodities. I want 2018 to be filled with happiness and positivity. I believe that this can only be achieved if I let go off all the things that are holding me back. This probably includes a selective number of people, and certain dreadful thoughts and worries that prevent me from reaching my full potential. I am yet to stumble upon an effective method  of doing this, but hopefully, I will uncover the secrets of positive vibes and ultimate tranquillity.

And last, but definitely not the least, this session, I want to focus on music. Music is one of my favourite things in the entire world, and singing is a passion of mine. I hope that I can find the time and dedication to work towards obtaining recognition and success when it comes to music. I have already set future plans to take part in several high-end competitions that will help me procure my dream of working in the music industry. 


Lets read what Anahat.......Siya........ Arsal....... Bhavya  have to share with us..........for  this session......................

Hello readers, I am a 13 year old happy girl !( well almost 13 ! ) I am told by many  that resolutions tend to get broken .. so here I begin with sharing my first resolution - I will uphold and fulfill my resolutions for the year 2018 !(Amen!).Further on I resolve to make a conscious effort to show more ‘gratitude ‘ towards my friends , my family and the almighty for everything that I am blessed with.For this I will write ten things that I am grateful for, for the next 365 days ! I also aim to eat well and exercise enough to attain a healthier body and mind. I am going to take up tutorials in pursuit of my passion for baking..( and maybe share yummy cakes and cookies baked by me with some of you !).Last but not the least , I will aim to remain my positive self and learn to see the best in every person and situation . Let me now share with you an affirmation that I intend to say out loud each day, which will help me achieve all that I have resolved for.
   I am a happy being
   I love myself
                                                  I am grateful for all that I have
                                                  The universe works for me

ANAHAT DUGGAL-8-A                                                   

"Every academic session we students set goals, make resolutions for a better, productive year. Just like any other student, I too made a resolution---To improve my grades, I decided not to mug-up the answers, understand the concept being explained and frame the answers in my own words.

Cramming is often perceived by students as a solution to those super-lengthy answers which cannot be memorized by them. The truth is that you are learning  a bunch of words whose meaning you don't really understand. This defeats the purpose of exams, which are actually there to test the level of understanding and not the similarity between your answers and bookish-language

Overall, this is something I've realized. I think all students must apprehend that cramming answers doesn't prove to be healthy in the longer run. I myself would try my best to work on it .

Siya Kumar 

My resolutions for the new session

Like everyone else, I too have some resolutions for my new session in class 8th . In this session, I want to become more disciplined. I will also try to get maximum attendance and take less leaves. I’ll study harder as in the next session, 9th, studies become very hard and I want to be prepared. I’ll also try not to take help from others and do projects by myself. I’ll also try to improve my  and writing. I’ll also try to be more attentive in class. I’ll also improve my response in class. Out of all of these resolutions, my main resolution is to improve my overall personality.



Resolution is a topic we always think about during the time we are About to sleep which is sometimes during the day – which is day dreaming or at the time of the New Years eve when the whole world is thinking about something which they would abide by for the whole year.  However, we are aware that these resolutions are being broken by the same individual who showcases the determination to have a strong resolution. Resolution is nothing but a promise to us that we would not follow the bad or the shortest road to success or will not say anything bad against anyone. As per my thoughts and belief, making a resolution is good as we give ourselves a chance to avoid making any mistakes in future. It also gives us a chance to interact with our inner selves and take a break from the technology and the world. If we make a resolution we can acquire the quality of being determined and standing strong always. I think making a resolution is a good habit - its like is a firm decision. Resolution helps us to showcase our decisions and adhering to the same helps us convey our strong character to the whole world. I admit that many a times, I have made a esolution and broken it, but, that doesn’t mean that I would stop my belief in creating one for myself.  A day would come when with the growing age and maturity, even I would learn to abide by my esolutions that I would make for my betterment and happiness of my loved ones.



Mehak too seems to be passionate about music......


The New Academic Session has begun and all the students are excited for it, including me…new class, new books and new teachers, there’s lots to do. This year was the same for some students, but not me. This time, I along with some other students initiated something new. I would set a goal for myself and try to reach it by the end of the year. If I complete it, I would call it an accomplishment.

I decided to set my goal for Music. I have always wanted to excel in Music and become a music producer. So, I decided to give the “ROCK SCHOOL” guitar exam and be able to create my own tunes. I would take out some time every day from my busy schedule and practice guitar. This would help me to reach my goal of becoming a famous guitarist and a Music Producer.

Yamini.......Advait......Kunal......also shared their views........

Hi! I am Yamini Iyer from class 8-B. My eighth grade just started on 2nd April and on my first day in school, I made a resolution that in eighth grade I will try my best to get good grades, and  will also  try to study well for my exams,  so that I do not face difficulty during my exams. I will try not to take it lightly and work as hard as possible. Have you ever heard  the saying "if you aim for the sky at least you will reach the ninth cloud"? Well, I believe that if you aim for the sky and work hard enough, you will reach there. I sincerely hope that by implementing a better time management system I will definitely reach my goal and achieve it all.



What does Advait and Kunal have to say............................................


Resolution is a firm decision to do or not to do something. I have made a few resolutions for this new year. My resolutions are-

We make resolutions every year but we soon break them. So my first resolution is not to break my resolutions but to follow them.

I want to get healthier by making the right balance in my life style for example eating healthy food- ‘junking the junk’.Playing more than one sport, walking instead of taking a car ride to school and learning yoga on weekends for a healthy body, mind and soul.

 Right now we all are in a gas burner which starts from pre-nursery and just goes on in different kinds of pressure cookers or grills. And sometimes you get burnt out so it is important to make a resolution to boost your self-esteem    and do things that you love to do [ even when you are on a gas burner] to be happier and also to keep the fire in you alive and going.


Volunteering for a cause and helping friends, family or anybody in need


Demonstrate confidence and leadership by being positive, calm and happy and strive for bigger and better objectives.

By making and following resolutions we can inoculate good habits. By following our resolutions, which is a sort of penance can take us to the zenith of name and fame and also help us to become a better human being.




Every day of our lives, we wake up to the only constant in this universe -  change! Even the time of sunrise changes from day to day, temperatures change, the flight patterns of birds change, sounds of nature change, yet, we continue to be repetitive in our doings. When the New Year was fast approaching, I found my friends and family discussing amongst themselves as to what their New Year Resolution would be. So,out of curiosity, I googled "New Year Resolution” and I came up with the following definition "A New Year's resolution is a tradition in which a person resolves to change an undesired trait or behaviour, to accomplish a personal goal or otherwise improve their life."

This got me thinking. What is it that I want to change? I started thinking on various issues that have made people around me unhappy from time to time. Was it that I talk too much or should it be related to my love for junk food? Or was there anything else that was truly undesirable? I kept pondering hard over days on end. At times I would seek advice from my mother and my sister. They came up with a lot of suggestions - exercise regularly, lose weight, don't talk too much, stop playing with your mobile phone, watch less TV, reduce intake of junk food, be regular for your guitar practice, organise yourself, make best use of your time, stop being careless and so on and so forth were the most common phrases that I got to hear. This got me thinking further. Do I really have so many traits that are undesirable? What is that root cause of all these problems?

After racking my brains a lot, I finally came to the conclusion that all my undesirable traits were closely connected to one particular trait. If I addressed that I would be able to bring about a change in myself which would not only be beneficial to me but also to my family and friends. I realised that carelessness on my part in every activity was the trait which in turn led to all other problems. I finally had come up with my New Year Resolution! My New Year Resolution thus was to be more careful in all my activities and overcome my habit of making careless mistakes.

To achieve this aim, I have decided to be more patient in my work and pay attention to minute details. I resolved not to make the mistake of not paying attention to my school work and exams. I must also not make the mistake of neglecting my diet, exercise, health and guitar lessons. I must also make it a habit to listen more than I talk. I must not be careless about time. I can always make up more time if I do my chores in an energetic manner rather than dawdling over them. I must not be careless about wasting time. It is well known that time and tide waits for none. I am sure that if I make an honest effort to get over my carelessness, I will become a much better citizen of this country, a model student and a responsible member of my family. I am confident that this will also endear me to my friends who will have greater trust in me than before. Therefore, I must also align myself to the universal constant and change!

Hello Readers!

Well, the most anticipated time of school life is always the final EXAMS!! It can be a stressful phase if one hasn’t prepared well and on the contrary, a cakewalk when one is fully prepped up.

This month, our edition is dedicated to examination time and we bring you smart strategies that will help you crack the toughest of tests. But before that, here is something to pep you up from the editorial team!!




We bring you some tips that can help you sail through the exam time smoothly.

Make a Time-table

Prepare a time-table at home to complete each subject thoroughly. Devote more time to those areas where you need more practice.

Review often

Revise and review what you have studies earlier. This will also prevent you from cramming and trying to learn all the notes you have days before the exam. Reviewing often helps you to be prepared for any test at any time.

Understanding is the key

Some students try to memorize everything they read without trying to understand.  If you study to understand you can answer any question on a particular topic. Once you understand a concept you can explain it very well.

Take breaks

Breaks are important during study session because it helps you to retain information better. Studying for prolong period will make you feel overwhelm and you will feel tired and exhausted. Feeding the brain too much information will cause congestion. Give your brain time to absorb new materials.  You can study for thirty minutes and then take a break for 10 minutes.

Test yourself

Testing yourself can help you to see if you understand the information. It will help to gauge which area you need to focus on more. Sometimes you think you know the concept but when you try to answer a question you find it challenging. Testing yourself help you to understand your topic very good. You can use old question papers.

Take care of yourself

You should always eat right and get sufficient sleep. Students tend to disrupt their sleeping schedule during the examination period. They also neglect their diet. You will retain more information in a healthy state so eat well and get good rest when you are studying for an exam. You should get at least 8 hours of sleep. Eat food that will enhance brain power such as fruits, fish, berries, egg, and broccoli.

Remain Positive

Sometimes, in spite of knowing everything, you will feel that you’re completely blank. Stay calm, positive and tell yourself that ‘I have prepared well and will be able to answer everything correctly.’ Giving oneself a pep-up talk helps to ease the mind.

We are very sure that you all will do amazingly well in the Final Exams. Here’s wishing you lots of luck for the forthcoming exams.


Best Regards,
