I QUIT Doesn’t it sound a bit awkward when i say “I Quit” or when you say “I ll Give up ” ???Am I diverting you from the traditional notion of “Never Give Up”??Oh ,but also the trenditional formula for life ???If you feel so then to i will say n persuade people to say to Give up …. .the question arises ….Why ??? Life is the most difficult exam .You never know what is its portion !!!!!But here you should try …..because it is a mandate to all ,then why to give up ?Just as an intelligent candidate in competitive exam will leave a question without answering just because he is totally unaware of its answer in order to avoid negative marking isnt it a good option ?Why wont you try and take a risk then ?As far as i am concerned i shall leave it !!!! Similarly you should learn to quit sometimes in life but not always .The only condition is the SITUATION ,analysis is indeed a deciding factor here and you have to be a great analyst here .’Quitting’ is necessary .Let me tell you how ??? You are in a bad fight with your bestie ,according to the trend ,you will fight to prove yourself right but i will either QUIT because if i value a Relationship, which is not just for friendship but every bond i create,i will try keeping it by just controlling my anger for few seconds and also keeping my ego low …..I got benefitted in many ways …i learned to control my anger …i saved my straining friendship and most importantly i didnt lose my friend . Lets us look on the other side of coin .I am in a bad company in whose conduct i might get fun n joy but it is really negative to side …i will QUIT ,yes,why not ???Believing i will have a better group .. I live a negative life ,yes a -ve life!Cant i quit and have a +ve life instead ??? I am sure here …. You have a moody mind …and you feel very agitated and irritated ….you can “Quit” a moody mind and feel better ……. You have to learn to quit on negative thoughts , negative people and most preciously” The Negative Yourself “.Yes ,it all what is in your head that the world looks !!!!!A jar is filled with water to a part .Most of them will say it is (part) empty but rarely some will say it is (part)filled !!!This -ve thoughts are only to be eliminated by the ” Quit “formula . You should quit your past ,its guilts for a better and brighter future .You should quit self doubt ,societal thinkings etc .You should quit fear of failure and demand for success .Live presently and not for dreams .Quit Hesitation ,Quit Desperation ,Quit Expectation ,Quit devastation . Now your time is up.You have to move further because you have great bright life lined up fm……Happy living.

Life is beautiful

Zoya Mukri

Life is beautiful
Life is full of ups and downs,
sometimes someone is happy ,
sometime someone frowns
Everyone tries their best,
to prove themselves better than the rest
Everyone is born with a talent,
which all these years had been silent
Life is beautiful ,so true,
and everyday you discover the new you
Life teaches us to learn from our mistakes,
and to solve them we have to do whatever it takes
Just like every flower in a bouquet may not be pretty,
it’s their unity which gives them strength and beauty
Life is an adventurous game,
even if we fail in it there is no shame.

Neha Tiwari (Counselor)

Just a thought how as a PARENT and a TEACHER or a GUIDE, one can help children to learn such a value that will last with the child forever- Follow these tips to help your child learn to be honest:
1- Avoid labels. Don’t call your child a liar.
2- Don’t ask questions when you already know the answer; this will only set them up to lie.
3- Work with your child to reduce any unnecessary stress that may be weighing them down and encouraging them to lie.
4- Avoid emphasising bad behaviour; try to bring up your child’s good behaviour rather than their bad behaviour.
5- Find out why your child is fibbing; there may be important reasons that you don’t know about.
6- Praise truth-telling instead of just punishing dishonesty.
7- Don’t forget “little white lies.” Encourage your child to be honest, but not brutally and unnecessarily honest.
8- Teach your child that lying doesn’t work; it’s never a good way to get what you want.
9- Keep your cool-don’t overreact or yell if your child lies.
10- Set a good example. The best way to teach honesty is to be honest (VanClay, 2017).

While these tips and suggestions are meant for parents, many of them can also be practiced by teachers and other caretakers as well.

Srishti Sharma

Last night you were in my dream
my tongue fluctuated to speak
and this mouth crawled underneath
Those words were moderately done,
my tongue also contrived baking that accent
so that you just not perceive this persona
but carry me home remembering my aroma
Morning cuckoo bird wakes me
for our traditional meet and greet
I’m with you and this time it’s not a dream
words sloped in fragmentation
I saw your face with calculations
and I knew I had failed
I shut these eyes tight
tears begging to flow turn freezing cold
I feel crystals piercing into my iris
Eyelashes fall, eyelids bleed
this tetrad chamber hates me
seeking permission for you to be pleased
with lipstick adhesive as gum
I fear it falls scraping my lips numb
I tear this face pack and tell you
I’m no more a place to be attacked
Deep down I’m truly myself inside
this bone and flesh unknowingly for you to be mine
I made this one outside to sit in dark hebrides
and the fake to be more socialized
I don’t know if you like me for the outsides
so step inside venture this soul twice
cause I’m sorry I can’t be your daily merchandise

You and Me

Zoya Mukri

You and Me
Somewhere to find a friend like you,
you always make me happy when I am feeling blue.
The way we talk , the things you say,
the way you make it all okay. It almost feels we never were,
all the time we spend was just a blur.
If i could wish for one thing ,
I will ask for the smile that you bring.
I have never met anyone like you before,
someone who can make me smile when i fall down on the floor.
So glad I got a friend like you,
always got each other’s back we do.
And everything is a little bit better,
when you and I stick together.
You always got a friend in me,
that’s the way it’s always gonna be.

Navaratri also spelled Navratri or Navarathri, is a nine nights (and ten days) Hindu festival, celebrated in the autumn every year. It is observed for different reasons and celebrated differently in various parts of the Indian subcontinent. Theoretically, there are four seasonal Navratri. However, in practice, it is the post-monsoon autumn festival called Sharada Navratri that is the most observed in the honor of the divine feminine Devi (Durga). The festival is celebrated in the bright half of the Hindu calendar month Ashvin, which typically falls in the Gregorian months of September and October. In the eastern and northeastern states of India, the Durga Puja is synonymous with Navratri, wherein goddess Durga battles and emerges victorious over the buffalo demon to help restore Dharmam. In the northern and western states, the festival is synonymous with “Rama Lila” and Dussehra that celebrates the battle and victory of god Rama over the demon king Ravana. In southern states, the victory of different goddesses, of Rama or Saraswati is celebrated. In all cases, the common theme is the battle and victory of Good over Evil based on a regionally famous epic or legend such as the Ramayana or the Devi Mahatmya. The word Navratri means ‘nine nights’ in Sanskrit, nava meaning nine and ratri meaning nights. According to some Hindu texts such as the Shakta and Vaishnava Puranas, Navaratri theoretically falls twice or four times a year. Of these, the Sharada Navaratri near autumn equinox (September-October) is the most celebrated, and the Vasanta Navaratri near spring equinox (March-April) is next most significant to the culture of Indian subcontinent. In all cases, Navaratri falls in the bright half of the Hindu luni-solar months. The celebrations vary by region, leaving much to the creativity and preferences of the Hindu.

1. Sharada Navaratri: the most celebrated of the four navaratris, named after sharada which means autumn. It is observed the lunar month of Ashvin (post-monsoon, September-October). In many regions the festival falls after autumn harvest, and in others during harvest.

2. Vasanta Navaratri: the second most celebrated, named after vasanta which means spring. It is observed the lunar month of Chaitra (post-winter, March-April). In many regions the festival falls after spring harvest, and in others during harvest. The festival is associated to the prominent battle that took place between Durga and demon Mahishasura and celebrates the victory of Good over Evil. These nine days are solely dedicated to Goddess Durga and her nine Avatars. Each day is associated to an incarnation of the goddess:

Day 1: Shailaputri Known as Pratipada, this day is associated to Shailaputri (literally “Daughter of Mountain”), an incarnation of Parvati. It is in this form that the Goddess is worshiped as the consort of Shiva; she is depicted as riding the bull, Nandi, with a trishula in her right hand and lotus in her left. Shailaputri is considered to be the direct incarnation of Mahakali. The color of the day is red, which depicts action and vigor.

Day2: Brahmcharini On Dwitiya, Goddess Brahmcharini, another incarnation of Parvati, is worshiped. In this form, Parvati became Sati, her unmarried self. Brahmcharini is worshiped for emancipation or moksha and endowment of peace and prosperity. Depicted as walking bare feet and holding a japamala and kamandalu in her hands, she symbolizes bliss and calm. The color of the day is Yellow which depicts calmness-wisdom-energy.

Day 3: Chandraghanta Tritiya commemorates the worship of Chandraghanta – the name derived from the fact that after marrying Shiva, Parvati adorned her forehead with half-chandra(lit. moon). She is the embodiment of beauty and is also symbolic of bravery, and hence, the color of the day is grey.

Day 4: Kushmunda Goddess Kushmanda is worshiped on Chaturthi. Believed to be the creative power of universe, Kushmunda is associated to the endowment of vegetation on earth and hence, the color of the day is Green. She is depicted as having eight arms and sits on a Tiger .

Day 5: Skandmata Skandamata, the goddess worshiped on Panchami, is the mother of Skand(or Kartikeya). The color White is symbolic of the transforming strength of a mother when her child is confronted with danger. She is depicted riding a ferocious lion, having four arms, and holding her baby.

Day 6: Katyayani Born to a sage, Katya, she is an incarnation of Durga and is shown to exhibit courage which is symbolized by the color Orange. Known as the warrior goddess, she is considered one of the most violent forms of Goddess Parvati. In this avatar, Katyayani rides a lion and has four hands.

Day 7: Kalratri Considered the most ferocious form of Goddess Durga, Kalaratri is revered on Saptmi. It is believed that Parvati removed her fair skin to kill the demons Sumbh and Nisumbh. The color of the day is white. Her skin turns black.

Day 8: Mahagauri Mahagauri symbolizes intelligence and peace. The color associated to this day is Pink which depicts optimism.

Day 9: Sidhidatri On the last day of the festival also known as Navami, people pray to Siddhidaatri(Ardanareeswara). Sitting on a lotus, she is believed to possess and bestows all type of Siddhis. Here she has four hands. Also known as Saraswati Devi.

Tanvi Thakkar


Have you ever experienced hunger? A hunger of 2 hours can drive you mad and burst out of anger . But there are more than 19 crore people starving and sleeping hungry every night in India. “Children are born,their hearts are torn, When there’s no food to eat, no shelter nor heat.” We have usually seen people giving poor people some money and then expecting them to buy some food and fill their tummies but have you ever checked where does this money go? There are certain people who force children to beg and then this money is used in buying cigarettes and alcohol by elders! “Starving and homeless,in need of food and clean water -know that you are not forgotten” We have everything given in our hands that’s why we do not understand the hunger to achieve something.Giving children some time of joy and filling their empty stomach can give you a lot of self satisfaction and put a smile on your face. Let all the students use our brains and valuable time to make their life filled with happiness. WE ARE THE CHANGE WHO WILL BRING ABOUT THE CHANGE IN THE SOCIETY AND MAKE IT A BETTER PLACE OF LIVING , FREE FROM HUNGER, POVERTY AND TEARS!

The greatest teacher in your life is the “LIFE” itself .When you take birth you are actually admitting yourself in the school of life and the care you are taken off at that time is same as your parents queue up for those admission forms with a delight for a better future .Just as you have a mother teacher in your “KGs” you have your parents ,looking for you ,till you stand on your legs….. People generally spoon feed their children with supports to walk but those children who self dependently want to walk they take their first move but rather fall …they stand up again now their legs have turned more stronger …see life taught you a lesson ….Fail but never fall ….have you ever wondered that failure could be First Attempt In Learning …..you make mistake but make a point that you don’t repeat .The curriculum of the LIFE school is very simple ,you are the only student with no books nor your favourite “PT” periods but just an empty container your “Brain”,there is just one who runs the whole school that is the ” Life”. You do have your periodic test but without any notice nor a timetable …. How come if life tests you with a notice ,then why would there be any fall ,all would pass right? The syllabus is very simple just you and yourself and self -introspection ,you just have 4 sections in the paper 1)Observation:To observe whats happening with you . 2)Identification: Why is happening to you and only you .Its as simple as finding sources of error in practicals. 3)Experiments:On the basis of your observed and identified knowledge you need now to experiment by using various ways ,risks are there but do take them and try hard. You might have problems but learn to adjust your apparatus 4)Conclusion: These are most vital of all because these are the results of your efforts ,you might get an entirely different conclusion than what your aim was ,as its your EXPERIMENT . Once you are done then formulate your own laws just like “My anger will be inversely proportional to greed to be happy” the more you want to be happy the less you will be angry.!

MUHARRAM : the month of sacrifice. Muharram is the first and one of the holy months of Islamic calendar . The Muharram festival is actually a period of mourning where Muslims commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussain , the son of Hazrat Ali and grandson of Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) , on the 10th day of Muharram (Ashura)In the battle of Karbala ( city in present day Iraq ) which was a battle of right versus wrong. Around 14 centuries ago on the day of Ashura , Imam Hussain was brutally killed by the tyrant ruler of those times for standing for justice and equality. Imam Hussain faced the oppressors numbering in thousands with his humble army of 72 which included childrens too , inspite of knowing the outcome of the battle. Although Imam Hussain was killed in the battle of Karbala , his message lives on , hence pronouncing his victory. He fought against the forces of evil and laid his life to uphold the glory of Islam. Muslims fast on this day and take out processions in the towns and villages remembering their Imam. They setup sabeels and feed poor in honor of the memory of Imam Hussain and his followers. Hussain said ” those who are silent when others are oppressed are guilty of oppression themselves”. If people follow this thinking , it would solve most of the problems being faced by our society today.

Once upon a time, in a country not far from the oceans , where trade flourished and the king was just , there lived a potter. He was the best potter in the country . There was no pot he ever had made wrong. His pottery skills were equally praised by both men and gods equal. He was a humble and an honest potter. His good skills at both pottery and dealing with difficult situations made him famous and lovable all over. One fine day, as the sun shone brightly and the potter got up to work, he thought of making an unbreakable vase. The potter decided to make it the most beautiful and astounding vase in the world. He began to make the vase. He made it with his love and care. His passion just added to its beauty. After 2 days of hard work, the vase was complete. It was so beautiful that the potter decided to never sell it. The vase had captured his heart and was dear to him. Meanwhile, in the abode of the Gods, Petra, the god of pottery saw the potter making the vase and immediately decided that he will conquer the vase anyhow. He talked to the potter to give him the vase in turn of a lifetime supply of riches and grain. However , the potter was reluctant to give anyone the vase, may it be a god or human. The vase was unbreakable because it was made with all his skills and it occupied the space in the bottom of his heart. There was no way he could give. Petra surprised by his confidence went back. He had planned revenge on the potter and the vase he loved so much. After a few days, a robbery occurred in the Royal palace. The thief was unidentified and the guards looked in everyone’s house for the loot. The looted material was found in the unbreakable vase! Everyone was shocked. The potter was sentenced to death. He however, had died of shock and grief that his vase, which he loved so much, had caught him up in the jail. The actual thing that happened was that Petra had helped the robber hide the loot in the vase. It wasn’t a difficult task for a god to whisper in a robber’s ears to guide him where to hide his loot so that he wasn’t caught. The house of the potter now bears the sign “There was once a kind potter who lived here and made a vase dear to his heart which broke on its own when the kind old man died in the prison.” (This is pure work of fiction. There is no such god as PETRA in any of the mythologies.)
