Happiness - Arjun Vaishnav

Happiness is an emotion, enjoyment, joyfulness and contentment. Many people have feelings for happiness. Then happiness is enjoyment and entertainment for me. Some people are happy when they receive gifts, while some are happy when their dreams are fulfilled. I also get so glad when I receive a gift on my birthday.

There are many incidents in my life when I was happy. I want to share one of the best incidents of my life when I was happy. I went for an outing with my family members at Tungareshwar. We enjoyed many things there. We enjoyed the natural beauty and the forest area where we saw many types of trees, rivers and animals. I was thrilled when I crossed the river by paddling through it. There is a temple of Lord Shiva there. It is a vast temple. We ate many things there. It was a memorable and happiest day of my life. I was thrilled on that day. My family members and I enjoyed the picnic a lot.

In my eyes, happiness is not only enjoying with our family members, but it could be with others also. I have had many happy moments. Playing with my friends at school or in a colony is also happiness for me. When I go on a school tour, it also makes me happy. Enjoyable moments with friends and attaining the expectations of our parents are also happiness for me. Happiness is anything that makes us happy. So we should be satisfied with any uncertainty.

Happiness - Mangilal Dewasi

Night Camp at School
Happiness is an emotional state characterized by feelings of joy, satisfaction, contentment and fulfilment. While happiness has many different definitions, it is often described as involving positive emotions and life satisfaction. But there are also some people for whom happiness is talking about how they feel in the present moment, or they might be referring to a more general sense of how they feel about life overall.

For me, happiness is the moment when I talk to my friends about various topics. The amount of happiness I get from here is uncountable and indescribable. Talking with friends is the most amazing experience in the world, which never ends. We can't talk with family or relatives or anyone else for more than a limit. But with friends, there is no limit to talk. Every thought from our mind comes to our mouth when we are with friends. Like, we can talk about our personal life, family life, social life, and anything; we can talk.

I would like to share one experience of my life. Two years ago, my school organised a night camp at my school. After activities, we were asked to go into our rooms and sleep. We all made our beds and then suddenly we started talking. As this went on, there were so many topics on which we were discussing and arguing. This whole talk went on for about one and a half-hour then our teachers asked us to sleep so that we could get up early and go for a morning walk, but still, we had endless talks, which filled everyone with joy. That night camp turned out to be one of the best experience with my friends, which gave me a kind of relief and happiness. At last, I would like to say that being with friends is everlasting happiness.

Trust - Krishna Dave

Trust is an essential thing in life, trust is hard to define, but we know when it's lost. It takes years to build but seconds to break, and it cannot regain. When a paper is crumbled, and you can smooth it over; but it's never going to be the same again. Trust makes the people believe in you like; when students trust, its a teacher, the teacher always tries to make the student future as bright as possible. Trust is fundamental to life, and it is always said that gaining someone trust is difficult, but it's not true if you build the nature of belongingness, then you can gain someone's trust easily without any difficulty. Faith and trust are two qualities that make a man great.

If you can trust, you are the person of courage because a coward person can never ever trust anyone in their life. When there is trust, communication becomes easy, and the goal can be achieved. It is a special thing to be trusted by someone. To be told, you are trusted is an even greater feeling. You should not trust anybody easily because people only take your advantage, always be careful before you trust anybody once you found someone you can trust then your life becomes good and sorted. 

Trust is like a good deed; it always comes in a good manner. Initially, being honest and trustworthy is the same because you never lie to someone, then automatically it builds someone to trust in you, which brings a feeling of happiness. For trusting someone, you should trust yourself first; if you can't trust yourself, then there is no way that you can trust anyone else because if you doubt yourself, then you will always doubt those around you as well. 

Trusting someone is always positive; trust is a scarce thing to find in life. It is always difficult to trust whom you don't know. Still, you should give one chance them by trusting them there will be two situations that person whom you trusted would break your trust then you should make that person your lesson by telling yourself that whom I trusted taught that you should never trust someone easily in your life or that person not break your trust, then you are lucky to have that person in your life. That person gives you good memories that give you the courage to deal with any problems in life.

Tolerance - Komal Sompura

Tolerance can be simply stated as the ability to accept and live and let others live or tolerate the issues that are not bearable, or a person finds it rigid to agree with the faith. Tolerance varies from person to person as it can’t be measured. It can also be considered unprejudiced. A person is towards different ideas and faiths as we live in a vast diversity where people have a different mentality.

The variation of tolerance level depends on different people; some people accept things not in their favour, whereas some of them oppose. Tolerance is required no matter how one lives, and tolerance is, after all, a virtue. Yet, tolerating virtues are certainly greater when based on living in the bigger picture of life described in the sacred literature. The world of the mind is small. What is good for one may be experienced as bad for another; happiness is another’s sadness. Ultimate reality is bigger than the mind, and this is what sacred literature informs us about. The beginning of realizing and living in this bigger picture beyond the duality of sense perception is tolerance. 

Tolerance is often learnt in subtle ways. Kids develop values by imitating the values of those they know the most. Parents can teach tolerance to their children, and senior members of an organization can teach tolerance to their subordinates and vice versa by example. Talking to each other and respecting each other helps learn and teach about each of them's values. Creating opportunities to play along with the usual official work is important as well. This let everyone learn that everyone has something fruitful to contribute to each other.

Tolerance - Vinayraj Singh

Tolerance means to tolerate the issues which are not acceptable, or a person finds it hard to agree with the beliefs. Tolerance can also be regarded as open-mindedness. Open a person is towards different ideas and beliefs because we live in a society where different people think differently.

For example, it is wonderful for some people to take drugs and even drink alcohol, but it is considered bad for other people. This is just one example; even when choosing a leader, some people are against the chosen leader. So tolerance is how comfortable someone is with the things which go against their will.

In India the tolerance level varies from person to person, some people accept things that do not happen the way they want and some people do not and actually protest in order to show their approval. So, at last, "Tolerance is the ability to forgive those who tend to speak before anything."

Tolerance - Khush Suthar

Tolerance refers to tolerate the issues which are not acceptable, or a person finds it rigid to agree with faith. Tolerance is also considered as the open-mindedness of people towards different beliefs and ideas.

We live in a society where people with different mindsets finds things pole apart. Some people find late-night parties and consuming alcohol bad, and the person attending these activities leads to be bad, whereas some people find it chill.

Tolerance cannot be measured because it varies from person to person. When electing a political body, some mindsets don't match, some are in favour, and some are against them. People tolerate things not happening in their favour, whereas some people protest for their demands.

Thank you.

Happiness - Akshita Rathore

Happiness is the most expensive thing in the world. If we are happy, then we can make others happy. Happiness is a medicine that makes people physically fit and strong. I get happiness by talking to my father and taking care of him. A happy person does his work happily and enjoyment, but if the person is sad, he can’t focus on work. People get happiness from various things: By making others happy, talking with friends, listening to music, I experience happiness when my dream comes true. In the world, no one is happy. Everybody is busy with their work, and everyone has tension. In every situation, just be happy, and your problem will be solved.

So be happy always.

Tolerance - Diksha Choudhary

Tolerance is the ability to remain calm in every situation. It is a value that includes many values that a person should have like happiness,  respect,  patience,  humanity and many more, which will help to unite the people. 

We all live in a society, and society is formed by a group of people who have different elements or thoughts that make them different from one another. And if we don't have tolerance in us, society will lead to inner-violence, i.e. people will stop presenting what they want or stop talking to each other. To stop this, we need the skill to live together peacefully, again referred to as "Tolerance".

To be tolerant means accepting other people's opinions and preferences even when they are not that you agree with. Be tolerant is to be someone's support that will make him or her happy, giving him or her happiness. It also stops us, the young generation, from getting a feeling of hatred for others. It also increases curiosity for having new ideas. It will also give us the strength to accept others' values, and it is also to appreciate someone who will help him or her move forward in life.
We are living in a world where people of different backgrounds, cultures and religions are living together. To create patience and have peace between us, tolerance has become crucial and important to everyone, especially in a country like India, where people start fighting on the topic related to religion.
I want to give a real-life example of tolerance which I've seen myself. I met a girl who had been tolerant of her friend. They used to make fun of her, they always do taunting and are always humiliating her, but still, she didn't even speak against them.  Can you answer this? Obviously, the answer is that she respects her friendship, and she wants her friends to be happy, so she did this.
Finally, I would like to end my article with a beautiful quote ‘Life is just like painting draw the lines with hope, erase the errors with tolerance, dip the brush with lots of patience and coloured with love.'

The future of education

The future of education will be built on immutable values alone: Appreciation, Caring, Co-operation, Courage, Freedom, Friendship, Happiness, Honesty, Hope, Humility, Love, Patience, Peace, Quality, Respect, Responsibility, Simplicity, Thoughtfulness, Tolerance, Trust, Understanding & Unity.

Joy Of Learning (JOL) will inspire you by using examples of where the values are already being used by children in schools and share practical tools to stimulate discussion and philosophical debate.

JOL is an extensive and profound learning experience that immerses members in a model of inquiry and problem-based learning. Students work collaboratively to gain knowledge to solve their significant challenges, we champion peer-to-peer learning. #JoyOfLearning

"We live in a society consumed by materialism and the desire for more. Does this mean our next generation of children will grow up being literate and numerate greedy consumers whose lives are judged by their houses' size and the latest model BMW on the drive? Or can our society, along with educators' desire, teach our children the values they need to take responsibility for living and learning? It's simple; the children are our future. It's our moral duty in schools to provide a Values-Based curriculum." The Little Book of Values: Educating Children to Become Thinking, Responsible and Caring Citizens by Julie Duckworth and Ian Gilbert.

"Peer-to-peer learning is when one pupil leads another through a task or concept. A simple way of expressing this difference is that in collaborative learning, students learn alongside one another, whilst in peer learning, they learn from one another." www.randstad.co.uk
