Cooperation - Anishka Nanda

Image
W hat does the word "cooperation "actually mean? It's not just working in a team but working together positively and healthily and uniting and collaborating with others. I learned to cooperate when I was 3 years old. I used to share my toys with my siblings and friends. Soon it developed the attitude of caring and sharing, give and take. It improved my friendship, and I started being understanding towards others. Most importantly, cooperation helped me a lot to learn how to overcome challenges together. It helped me in building better learning, emotional maturity and strong personal identity. Cooperation is essential because it allows people and groups to work together to achieve a common goal. "Alone, we can do so little, but together we can do so much." Name: Anishka Nanda Grade: 5C Billabong High International School, Thane

Joy of Reading - Hridhaan Jain

Image
Hridhaan Jain is a student of grade 3 from Gyanshree School, Noida. His favourite place in the world is his school library. He is passionate about reading and travelling to space. He aspires to become an astronaut in future… Reading is the gateway to many adventures. It makes a bubble of curiosity and imagination in our minds. It even helps us in decision making in many situations. Many times when we read, it clears our strain and gives us peace of mind. When I read any book, I imagine a similar character roving in the same story. My favourite books are Mudcrusts, Noddy, Thrilling Illustrated Stories, Tinkle Digest and many more. Books have filled my mind with so much fascination that I am keen to pretend to play the same fantasy with my family and friends. Reading bedtime stories with my mother is the best part of my day. We have immense fun together, and she always teaches me moral values from that story. Reading has improved my vocabulary and communication skills and given me great

Cooperation means working together to achieve a common goal. It could be of many types like cooperation between groups, pairs, direct, indirect, and even between humans and robots. Cooperation is a kind of social interaction which is an essential factor in teamwork. Without cooperation, a team won't achieve its goal no matter how hard it works.  There was an incident in my life that made me understand the importance of cooperation. In class 8, I was selected for a drama performance at the Annual Day function. As it was to be staged in front of guests, parents, principal, teachers, and the rest of the school, I was nervous, and so were the rest of the team members. Because I was a new girl and didn't have many friends, I lost my confidence; I was worried that I would spoil the performance because of my nervousness. Still, in that situation, 2 factors made my team successful, authentic leadership of the leader and the cooperation of the team members. I thought in a gr

Cooperation - Tiya Sompura

   I have made a graphic to explain cooperation. Working together with somebody else to achieve something is known as cooperation. It is the ability to balance one's own needs with someone else's. It is derived from the two Latin words: 'Co' meaning together and 'opera' meaning to work. It can be seen in family, school, friends, etc. It helps society to develop. Without cooperation, it's not easy to achieve a goal. It is a positive motive that is equivalent to competition in motivating a person to reach the goal. It creates a very healthy environment for the betterment of society. Tiya Sompura  Class VII A The Fabindia School

Co-operation - Hetal Vaishnav

Image
Co-operation means working together.  Co-operation is essential for us and our society.  For example, co-operation is when someone hands you a paper, and you lay the paper. Co-operation is necessary for a family and even in our professional life. In the case of children, co-operation is primarily expressed in the play.  Co-operation is one of the most widely taught skills. At an early age, we learned that "United we stand, divided we fall".  When I was in class 4, my classmates and I were given Swachh Bharat Abhiyan's mission. We all had to clean our school. We all worked together, and because of co-operation, we all got success in this mission. Co-operation means to work together to achieve a common goal.  Co-operation is very much essential in our life. Hetal Vaishnav  Class VIII A The Fabindia School

Beating The Odds - Rishona Chopra

Image
After reading the chapter Beating The Odds from the book Is Your Child Ready For The World by Dr Anupam Sibal.  We often come across problems that get in our way or obstacles that discourage us. Even our own health can discourage us from our goal, but we shouldn’t let that happen.  Life has ups and downs, and we have to face them. People can only comfort us, but it is we who have to  be brave and strong to face such challenges. Take the example of Ludwing Van Beethoven, a famous pianist.  Ludwig Van Beethoven had a hearing problem called Tinnitus in which he would get a ringing sound in his ear that made it difficult to hear. Despite facing trouble, he faced this challenge and played the piano like there was no end. He played it with positivity. He was able to make masterpieces even with his hearing problem. The story of Beethoven is just an example. Your health doesn’t need to be a problem. It can be of any kind, from bullies to serious injuries. It can be anything, but you have to fa

Real life experience of cooperation by Anushri Palnitkar.     Hello everyone, today I am going to be sharing my story when my mom cooperated with me. Once my class was going on and my teacher gave me a homework and told me to submit it till 4:00 p.m. When the class ended, I started doing my homework, and the battery of my laptop drained out. In the other room my mom was working. My laptop was getting charged but I had to wait, when I went to my mom, she asked me what happened? I said “ My laptop is getting charged ’’. I was sad because I was not able to do homework. So, my mom gave her laptop to me and said “ I will do my work later, you do your homework now”. And this is how my mom cooperated with me. Hope you liked my experience. Thank you! Name: Anushri Palnitkar Grade: 5A Billabong High International School, Thane

Art: My Passion My Life - Ushita Saxena

Image
  Art is very important. It helps in anxiety, stress and keeps you calm. It makes life more manageable, tolerable and enjoyable. It also enhances your drawing skills. Art in any form, whether while creating or observing, makes you feel good. By letting you enjoy a sense of fulfilment, it turns you into a more positive person. Here is my personal experience- Once I was stressed because I was worried that I wouldn’t submit an essential assignment in time. So my Mom suggested doing some drawing. I doubted her but then started to do it. I looked it up and saw something to draw. As I drew, I felt calmer, and my nerves began to settle. After an hour, I had finished my drawing. It looked pretty good! Soon, I completed my assignment correctly and beautifully and submitted it. My Mom was very happy. Art is my meditation. It helps me express myself, and it makes me feel more confident. Ushita Saxena, Gyanshree School, 5A

Cooperation - Avni Karmarkar

Cooperation is working together in a team to complete a particular task. Let me share a remarkable story where we cooperated with each other and got success. Tucked away into the Himalayas, the wondrous kingdom of Bhutan has some beautiful stories. This story is about four friends, an elephant, a monkey, a peacock, and a rabbit. This is a well-known story all over Bhutan. In the beginning, the four friends were not friends. They argued about who had the right to a fruit tree, whose delicious fruit was enjoyed by all of them. This argument stopped when a man overruled them and claimed ownership of the fruit tree. The four friends wondered what to do to get the fruit they all loved. They wanted to help each other, so they became friends. “ I will plant a seed in the ground,” the peacock said. “I will water it,” the rabbit said. “I will fertilize it,” said the monkey. “I will protect it,” said the elephant. The seed grew and grew until it became a tree. On the tree came the lovely fruit.

Co-operation - Aanya Kumar

You must have heard the word “cooperation. What is cooperation? It is nothing but considering and accommodating the ideas of others, rather than only ours and respecting the same too. Cooperation is working with others and working as a team. Here is a story on the importance of cooperation One day an average businessman named Harish was heading towards his office. Hardly after one hour after he reached, his manager called him. He said, “Harish, there is a significant group project that I am making you in charge of. I hope there will be no problems. But if there is, please contact me.” Harish was a kind man and loved working in teams. But the thought of being the senior-most made him bossy and mean. His voice tone became demanding, and slowly his team members stopped liking him. He chose his best team member and made him do all the work. Not one was allowed to help him. There was no teamwork. Harish proudly started presenting the work and told them it had been done by the best team memb

Trust - Divya Rathore

Image
Trust, in simple terms, is faith in another person, despite a lack of an assured outcome. One characteristic that makes trust unique is its fragility. To gain the trust of parents or friends, one must continuously prove one's honesty and reliability.  Among all my friends, I trust only Sanyogita because she always motivates me and helps me in any kind of situation. Due to my financial problem, I couldn't join all online classes, and my work was also incomplete. I asked all my friends to help me, but not even a single friend could help me. I was quite disappointed. Then Sanyogita, my classmate, came and told me not to get upset and said she would help me with all my work. That act of Sanyogita made me feel happy and proud that at least there was someone who helped me in my time of need.  I realized that living in the world these days is hard because people are no longer honest and helpful. Being dishonest always causes problems that can lead to someone getting offere

Caring - Arindita

Caring means to be kind or concerned about something. For example, helping someone shows you care for the person. Caring is essential as it benefits both you and the person you care for. It is very similar to kindness and respect. It creates happiness and love; it even makes you a better person. Caring doesn't necessarily mean to help someone or do something big, even simple acts of kindness count. There are many ways you can care for something: You can help someone if they are struggling to do something. You can also make someone feel better by having good talks with them You can provide something to someone if they need it. You can respect them. And many more ways. A simple act of kindness can make a huge difference, Care for others. - Arindita, Class 5, Gyanshree school

Happiness - Leesha Suthar

Image
Happiness is a feeling which each and everyone experiences in his or her life. There are different ways in which we get happiness. We experience a lot of happiness by living in a joint family because there the whole family lives together. Going to someone's wedding or someone in the family is getting married. We enjoy it, we have fun, we get happiness in that.  School trips, family trips, friends trips and going for picnics, we are very happy in those moments because we enjoy ourselves a lot during that time. On someone’s birth and performing functions, playing with the newborn baby gives us immense joy.  The joy we used to get when we were little ones, like playing with toys, going out, having fun, falling in love, going to school for the first time, meeting new friends, and seeing a place for the first time or whatever we did which no one has ever done also make us happy. Fighting with brother, teasing him, having fun with him, taking small things from him. Eating

Appreciation - Rehan Raza

Image
Praising anybody for their task can increase the confidence of the receiver. The word “Appreciation” looks smaller from the outside, but it can help achieve anything if used properly. This word is the most powerful word for motivating someone. If someone gets appreciated for a specific task, then that person always gives the best in everything. This word is motivational, carries a vast power inside and can turn negative thoughts into positive ones. This is the magic of appreciation. Many people know how to make use of this word while others recognize its depth and meaning. If this word is used for a person, they can carry out any problematic task with low input energy. Many organizations and multinational companies are known for their culture of appreciation. This is the main reason behind the happiness of their employees. If there is a difficult task ahead and a team is unfamiliar with how to carry out that task, the team leader or manager tries to appreciate members or members for th

Cooperation - Rishona Chopra

  Cooperation is the time when you adjust with someone whether you like it or not. It is when you help someone not caring about yourself and putting their needs before yours. Like, if you have a friend who needs immediate help and you have to go to a party so you could adjust and go to the party a little late and help your friend instead. Now I’d like to present a story on cooperation-                                      The Perfect Project Once there was a class who was assigned a project. As they started to begin -  “ Listen my plan is to first design the template that’s all that matters” “ No we will research first and that is what I’ll do only me” “I will do the research too” “No we will draw first” The entire class started to fight for what they shall do. Each of them wanted things to go their way. Then one girl stepped up and said “Wait. If we fight like this we will never be able to make a good project. Let’s listen to everybody’s ideas and put them together.” A boy said “I’m w

Appreciation - Khush Rajpurohit

How often have you stopped to smell the roses? The saying refers to living in the present and is not all about smelling the roses next to you on the table? It is essential that we each appreciate the current moment and even list things we are thankful for. Of course, you could question why but the fact remains that most of us have this tendency to take our loved ones, including our current circumstances, for granted. The one lesson that none of us ever seem to learn until too late is that nothing is permanent in life. Our loved ones, from our parents, grandparents, teachers, and siblings, will not always be around to help us out in our time of need. This is why it is essential to appreciate all the big and small things in our lives; after all, showing our appreciation to the ones we love only validates that emotion and should help strengthen it further. It is the little things that matter a lot, so you just need to take a moment to sit down, do some introspection, write a

Appreciation - Himanshi Rajpurohit

Appreciation means recognizing someone's good qualities. If you can acknowledge someone's good qualities, then you should appreciate them for that. Now you would think about it that appreciating anyone does not matter that much. But it's totally wrong because all those trying new things need your admiration the most. If we give value to their thoughts, then more desire will increase in their mind towards that work. For example, as I am making sketches, painting, portraits, etc. I am getting so much praise and appreciation from people, and that's why it encourages me to perform much better. I would like to share a poem composed by me to thank all those who appreciated me. Thanks to those who hated me,  You made me stronger. Thanks to those who loved me, You made me go further. Thanks to those who stayed with me, You showed me true friendship. Thanks to those who encouraged me, You made me feel like I was worth it. Himanshi Rajpurohit Class IX A The Fabindia School Illust

Confidence - Rishona Chopra

Confidence is a feeling where you feel capable. Where you believe in yourself. A thought of confidence could be - “ I can do it.” This means that whatever you have as your goal, you can achieve it. You only have to believe in yourself. That is, you have to be confident. Another meaning of confidence is to not be nervous. It is to express your thoughts without feeling nervous. It’s not that you have to not think before you say something or do something. It’s just to not fear what someone else will think of you. Now I’d like to present a short story on confidence-                                             The magic of Confidence Once there was a young girl who used to live in the countryside. She was beautiful, intelligent, kind and simple. There was only one thing that she lacked, and that was confidence. She was nervous and had lost belief in herself.  One day when she was crossing a farm, she saw that the crops were all gone! Surprised, she went to the farmers and asked where the c

Session 1, 14th November 2021 In today's world, where technology makes enormous demands on children's time, it is tough to communicate with them. On the occasion of Children's Day, an online book reading programme has launched "Joy of Reading" by My Good School to encourage reading among our students and extend communication with them. At this prestigious moment, many students attended the session to inculcate reading habits and life lessons. We believe that reading books helps us to excel in every field. Books are full of stories, knowledge, experiences, values and many more.  The session was led by our chairman Mr Dutt. We started with Dr Anupam Sibal life lessons, reading the first chapter, ' Humility' from 'Is Your Child Ready To Face The World'.  We read the chapter, understood the value of humility and learnt its importance in our life. The group was assigned tasks and shared situations that will help us experience humility.  I sincerely than

Happiness - Harshit Rao

Image
Everyone wants to be happy; none of us wants to be sad or be alone. Happiness is the state of mind when we feel joyful and feel happy. People when meeting after a long time, the feeling which comes at that time is happiness. When we lose something and find it suddenly, that is happiness. Every small thing gives happiness. Happiness is something we can't express in words, but it is something we can give to someone. If everyone gives happiness to each other, then the world would be heaven. Friends are the real source of happiness. Happiness is the medicine for problems like depression, sadness, anxiety, etc. It's something that can save a person's life. So stay happy and make others happy. Harshit Rao Class X The Fabindia School

Caring is something that all of us experience at some point in our lives. Most of the time we do not see it or understand it. When our mothers cook yummy food for us despite their busy schedules when our grandparents ask us how we are feeling today when our friends ask ‘kaisi hai’ or ‘what’s up' when our fathers tell us not to ride a bicycle without a helmet – all of these are because they CARE about our well-being. Our response generally is ‘what’s the big deal?’ ☹ and we forget about it. Well, one of my experiences where I felt very strongly that people CARED for me, was when I fractured my foot. In short, I had what the good doctor referred to as a ‘hairline fracture’ in my foot when I was dancing Kathak (of course, at the wrong speed and wrong technique) last Dussehra. The pain was unbearable, and I was extremely scared of how I was going to walk again (though it wasn’t that bad, then it was good either 😊 ). Apart from the physical pain, I was also quite depressed that I

Global Warming- Aanya Kumar

Image
Global warming is the rising of temperature on Earth. It rises by about one degree Celsius each year, but it is a significant change. It is caused by carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide. These pollutants can stay for centuries and trap the sunlight bounced off to the Earth's surface. This light could bounce out to space, but the gases trap the light. They are known as greenhouse gases and cause the greenhouse effect. Global warming is harmful to human beings and the Earth in many ways; for instance, it can cause many natural disasters like- storms, heat waves, floods, and droughts. It would be challenging to live in these conditions. Global warming can be reduced in our houses with few simple steps. We should always turn the lights and fan off before leaving a room. We should use energy-saving light bulbs, and gradually global warming will reduce. Aanya Kumar Grade 5 Gyanshree School, Noida

Say what you think

Image
Disagreement and debate are the lifeblood of democracy Alasdair McWhirter | McWhirter Foundation Chair If you are one of our alumni and reading this, the chances are you are bright and may well go on to achieve great things in whatever career you choose. Whether that turns out to be in AI, fashion, medicine, politics, protecting the environment or something completely different, find the courage to say what you think about the things that matter to you, particularly when your view is different to that of your friends.  Social media has its good side but it has also led to a world in which there is a ‘received’ view on most important social, moral and political questions for any given peer group. Disagreeing with that view can feel quite scary, so many people choose to go with the flow and not really think about what may be an important issue. The problem is that ‘accepted’ views can often end up being far too simplistic, leaving little room for nuance, let alone outright disagreement.

Take a look at all the things in your house. Are they bringing any value to your life? Are they even close to you? Do you use them? Your room would probably be filled with things that you don’t use or don’t bring any value to your life. Imagine a life without those unnecessary things. Pretty plain and boring. Right? Not really. Humans have created a belief that is to love things and use people.  Loving things will give you temporary happiness because as soon as things are finished, we crave them again and plead for them, and if we don’t get it, we are disappointed or angry. While on the other hand, if we love people with a true heart, happiness lasts forever. People crave things so much and so that without them, they are not able to survive. Imagine people can’t live without water, food, and now people can’t live without things! Doesn’t it look a little silly? Honestly, I thought the same. I felt that things were the most important for me. My entire room was filled with things I didn’t

Everyone needs a bit of appreciation at some point in time. It’s a part of being Human. Showing appreciation just takes a few words – ‘great going’, ‘good show’, ‘well done, but its value is far more than that. A small piece of appreciation motivates us to be better than we are.  Thankfully, there have been incidents in my life (just like all of you) where I was appreciated, and it made me feel good and, more importantly, motivated me to do better next time. My first award was a bronze medal in Sports Day function 2015 when I was in Jr. Kg. That was the first time I stood so close to our school Principal, and it was beyond my most fantastic dreams – such an honour 🤩! Even if it was a bronze medal, this small appreciation helped me develop a mindset to participate in extra-curricular activities in later years, whether SpellBee, Neltas, Logiqids or Drawing and Handwriting competitions.  My next memorable moment came when I passed the First level of Kathak dance, which I had been practis

All of us have been appreciated at some point. I can recollect being appreciated by my class teacher as the “Student of the month” for having completed all my classwork in spite of a fractured left hand. Similarly, pre-primary graduation day, science project presentation, class paintings, annual day performances, etc. have all been appreciated.  Participating in much loved sports such as Skating and Swimming have also been rewarding. Most of all, appreciation from my parents has always encouraged me to take up newer challenges and perform at my very best.  Varad Sadvilkar  Grade - 5A   Billabong High International School Thane
