Lunch Time - Gaurangi Rastogi

Image
In a boarding school, we have no lunchbox, but we have canteens there. That place was a place for showing affection, having fun, and interacting with teachers. As the head chair of my table, I must make my juniors eat the food properly, ensuring discipline and no wastage of food. When I became the head chair for the first time, it was a tough job to make my juniors eat properly, Sometimes, they did not like the dish, or the taste was too bad. Once I broke down, I was tired of the tantrums, but a senior made me realize that I was like them; when I was a junior. Today, I share and tell them that they eat little but everything! This lesson would be remembered all the time.   Gaurangi Rastogi   Grade-VII A   The Doon Girls' School

Empathy - Ushita Saxena

Image
Empathy is when you connect with someone. When you understand someone's feelings and know what to tell them. When you observe someone suffering, you may be able to imagine yourself in their shoes and sympathise with them.  Have you ever heard of the term "sympathy"? Sympathy and Empathy may sound like synonyms, but actually, they aren't! Sympathy is when you feel sorry for someone from your own perspective. Empathy is when you put yourself in someone else's shoes and understand why they feel that way. This is a significant difference to understand. Let's take an example. Your friend's sibling died, and they are feeling super sad. What would you do? If you were to sympathise, you would say things like 'I'm sorry you're feeling that way or 'It's okay. Don't worry about something like that. But if you were to empathise, you would say things like, 'I have been there and be sad too.   Empathy is essential as it helps build connection

My School Song - Aanya Kumar

Image
My name is Aanya Kumar, and I study at Podar International School. Just likeTotto-chan’s old school, our school also has a school song. As requested by Sunita Ma’am in today’s session, I would like to post my school song here-: We are the kings and queens, We are the shining dreams, We nurture sunshine, embrace the winds, We have the scientific zeal and power to enthral, We want the whole horizon, YES, we are Podar, yes, we are Podar. Hai sanskriti hamari, Har mushkil hamse hari, Hum aasman ko chune ki rakhte hai  taiyari. YES, we are Podar, yes, we are Podar. Baapu ne dekha tha sapna, Hamne usko saakara. Vishvas, sathya, nishta se, Chamke banke Dhruvtara. YES, we are Podar…… Excellence is the key; we make our own destiny.  Smiling faces, passionate souls, that’s what we are.  YES, we are PODAR, YES, we are PODAR. Aanya Kumar Grade 6-B Podar International school

The School Song - Rishona Chopra

Image
A school song displays the school but do we really need a song to display our school? Isn't the love of the teachers quite enough? Isn't the hard work of teachers quite enough? We don't need a school song to realize that this is a perfect place, or do we? At Tomoe, we don't have a school song, but the headmaster's love is quite enough to describe his school. Even if we have a school song, we should sing it with pride because going to a good school is a blessing as it is a haven of knowledge. At Gyanshree, we have a school song, and it goes like this: We, the Shreeyans, are virtuous and strong To this heavenly place, we belong We see our future gleaming in the light We vow to be prudent and upright Seeking knowledge, resolute to attain At Gyanshree, excellence and acclaim We, the Shreeyans, we are proud to be Radiant and blissful, wise and worthy All the Shreeyans, sing out loud With such a lovely school, we are endowed. Isn't that a wonderful school song? Althou

Unity In Diversity - Rishona Chopra

We have so many languages, Each of them gives us so much knowledge. Lots of different cultures, Each one of them is precious! This rich diversity, Gives me a new identity. Everyone is so unique, Together when we come, no one is weak! Even though our differences create problems, We should understand our differences are our customs! We are all united as a team, We can together make a dream. After all, it’s unity in diversity, We are just so extraordinary! That is why we say east or west, India is the best!

Brighten Their Day! - Reveda Bhatt

Image
Here I come, from far away, I think of something; but not the right way, Oh, Lord! Tell me what to say, Not to hurt anyone but to brighten their day! Saying something terrible when you are not in your senses Is the worst when seen through life’s feeling lenses Just like cursing someone seems not to be the worst, But, from the other perspective, it can make the victim’s feelings burst! That is why, before saying anything- I ask my Lord about what to say, Not to hurt anyone, But to brighten their day! Reveda Bhatt Grade 9 The Aryan School

The Butterfly - Rishona, Mahir, Kabeer, Diva and Anisha

Image
A butterfly roaming in the flower sector, Going flower to flower to collect some nectar. They fly with their colourful silky wings, They fly when the nightingale sings. Oh! How beautiful it is when its colours shine! And when I catch it, it will always stay mine. When it flies around me, It's so glorious, I see. Oh, what a joy it is, a butterfly. I know it will never lie. They fly so high, It feels like they could touch the sky. Pretty and sweet, Always clean and neat. In the end, butterflies are amazing creatures, They have so many beautiful features. Rishona, Mahir, Kabeer, Diva and Anisha Grade VI Gyanshree School

Learning: The Fun Way - Anvesha Rana

Image
At Tomoe Gakuen, the students could study the subjects at their own pace. Unlike regular schools where children have fixed periods for different topics. At Tomoe, one could start by doing their favourite subject and then somehow manage to do the ones they dislike; this was learning the fun way. Independent decisions made the children ready for real life.  Another aspect of Totto Chan's new school was that lunch was unique. Everyone was supposed to bring something from the ocean and the hills to meet the essential nutrition requirement. Also, if the child only had something from the sea or something from the sea, then the headmaster's wife would dole out the other. So all kids at Tomoe Gakuen always ate Something from the ocean and something from the hills.  The Headmaster was a distinctive individual; he always encouraged the children to chew their food well and respect it. He would often test the students' culinary knowledge by asking them about the place from where their
