Can You See Osaka? - Rishona Chopra

Image
The picture shows how Totto-chan's uncle used to pick her up and ask her if she could see Osaka. It was her dream place. She was much more excited when she got to know Takahashi - a young boy in her school who came from Osaka. Now tell me something. Can You See Osaka? Rishona Chopra Grade VI Gyanshree School

The World of Television - Simar Kaur

Image
Hey, 'how you doin'?'. This infamous dialogue, iconic, I might add, is a signature of Joey from the hit sitcom 'Friends'. I honestly couldn't count how many times it had made me laugh, even when I was at my lowest. The perfect life of cinema where everything seems to lead to a happy ending is the perfect run-away for me when my life seems shattered. Whenever my life seems too much to handle, I run away to my imaginary friends, with whom I can share everything. The amazingly sarcastic Chandler, the hopeless romantic Ted dedicated to finding 'The One', the motherly nature of Lily, the overprotective Finn, the 'drowning with creativity' Barney, the 'smart guy' Sheldon, they all are the friends I never had. I get scolded every single day for watching television way too much. But the truth is that I love to live another life, and coming back to my regular boring, uninteresting life just seems hectic. Even if they are just a figment of so

Too Caught Up - Reveda Bhatt

Image
You call it life? It’s just a game. Looking for a shelter, When under rain. Thinking about what to do, Coming out in pain. Realizing too late, Figuring out what’s main. Figured out what to do? But, now, you’re stuck in chains. Chains rising high, All the struggle went in vain. What for? Just to have substantial gain! Reaching your destination, Looking at a lane. See where it leads to, A ring surrounded by canes. Entered it only to see a spark Leading to flames Looking around to escape, But now you’re too deep, It’ll never be the same! Reveda Bhatt  Class 9 The Aryan School

Thank you - Rishona Chopra

Image
Thank you, god, For not making me a fraud, For helping me through my little pains, You just kept pleasing me again and again. I have a home, My family has money to travel to Rome! I can see and hear, When I think of this, in front of me, you appear. I can study, and I can feel, I can have a tasty meal. I am healthy, Thank god I am not nasty. I can see a new day, I can play! I go to a beautiful school, Which is really so cool. I can do so much, yet I ask for more, I already have a lot, and I don't need anymore! Rishona Chopra Grade VI Gyanshree School

Journaling: My Little Book Of Feelings - Rishona Chopra

Image
J ournaling is keeping a diary. You don't have to write long letters. A few drawings, page tearing, or even a few sentences can say it all. I like to call my journal - My Little Book Of Feelings because, in a day, I have so many feelings. In the morning, I am all happy and bright, and by the end of the day, all gloomy and sad. You never know! I am very unpredictable if you talk about my feelings. You don't need to have a proper diary, just take a piece of paper and vent all your feelings. But then, when you have an excellent journal, and at the end of the week, you look at what you have written, you can reflect on your situations in a better way. I think expressing yourself by writing is much better because when you tell them with a person not necessary, they would actually understand your feelings, but that's just my way of doing it! On the cover of my diary I have written - Open if you dare, don't you dare try to do that and of course have used lots of stickers and de

Happy International Yoga Day! - Rishona Chopra

Image
Today on International Yoga Day, Why don't we pray, For healthy lives for everyone, And that bad times don't touch anyone! Let's wake up with a happy morning, And exercise a bit which will surely be rewarding! Butterfly pose or the wheel pose, You can even stand on your toes. At least you can do some meditation, It will free your mind from unnecessary information. So let's wish everyone a very happy International Yoga Day, And let's celebrate the moment by being happy and gay! Rishona Chopra  Grade VI Gyanshree School

Acceptance - Rishona Chopra

Image
Acceptance is considering people as they are. It is not knowing people's faults and not talking about them. That is being sympathetic. Acceptance is to not even realise one has flaws or is disabled; it is just to consider them equal to you. In the book Totto-chan, Takahashi was short, but no one talked about it because they probably didn't realise that he was disabled or had faults. They just accepted him as a child.  When we grow up, we know more, we know the faults, we know when one is disabled and when we see that, we even stop feeling pity for them! That is why our brain cannot use it to its total capacity because the more we know, the more problems we create. Life will unfold itself. We don't have to force it to open its destiny.  In an extract from Peter Pan, Peter says to Wendy: Children don't believe in fairies because they know more than what they are supposed to know, and that's why fairies are fading from the world. Accepting people is looking at their go

Acceptance In Your Heart - Gaurangi Rastogi

Image
Every day, we encounter different people with different personalities, some are very judgemental, or some don't judge according to their appearance. A few years ago, I met a woman who was an acid attack survivor. Her face was very burnt out that the nagging aunties would gossip about her. She heard the conversation but did not say anything. I was a little judgemental at the time of the situation. I dared to talk to the woman, but the aunties made her go away from the avenue. Was it essential to make her go away? As she is not beautiful like others. That's what Acceptance is... accepting others, not based on looks, clothes, or wealth. Accepting limitations of friends and family important, like:  Snoring,  Sleepwalking and incidents like the story of Takahashi. In addtion we must  follow some habits of friends too. 'Takahashi,' the value is Acceptance, like Totto-chan accepts the boy as her friend. Can't we accept others as our friends? Will you still not receive a pe

Totto-chan - Simar Kaur

Image
My reflection post reading Totto-chan.  What are the similarities and differences between Totto-chan and Simar? Totto-chan is a free-spirited person who loves to find joy in the most mischievous and different activities. Even though, I try not to engage in playful activities, I love to try new things. Totto-chan is not outcome-driven. She likes to live in the moment and enjoy something to its extent. However, I am very much outcome driven and am a future-oriented person. She wants to just go for things. While, I am someone who creates a list of pros and cons in my mind even before taking small steps and think of worst-case scenarios and best-case scenarios and all the possible outcomes of taking that step. And thus, I take a long time to make even the simplest of decisions. I wish I were more of a spontaneous person like Totto-chan but growing up seems to get in the way of that. But nonetheless, I try. I try to take chances and just go for it. But at the end of the day, I try to safe s

Totto-Chan - Anvesha Rana

Image
I wish I could be a little more like her,  for Totto-Chan would be a true dreamer,  Her incidents can make you laugh out loud,  and her innocence can create love around.  Totto-Chan is so much fun,        She can pass through barbed wires without a grunt,    She makes up her own crazy games,  and plays them without any aims.  I have never seen another like her,  So sensitive and empathetic,  and yet so succumb.  She can make anyone a friend,  from Takashi to Yasuaki-Chan,  all of them are mates.  Totto-Chan is truly a gem,  living the way she loves to,  by sliding down a cesspool,  or standing in the sand for a time too long! I wish I could be a little more like her! Anvesha Rana,  Grade 10-B,  Gyanshree School

Avni: Inside the Hunt For India’s Deadliest Man-Eater - Rishona Chopra

Image
On November 2, 2018, tigress 'Avni' or T1, as she was known officially, believed to have been responsible for the deaths of 13 people in Maharashtra in two years, was  shot dead  in the Yavatmal district of the state. Like we humans think of killing animals and banning them from the world the same way animals want to kill us because humans and animals can both live in harmony, but fear causes us to create trouble. Just imagine yourself as a tiger who people want to hunt down and hurt; won't you want to hurt those who hurt you? Sometimes, when I look at a tiger's eye, I feel the sadness, fear and pain in her eyes.  After all, the cause of animals hurting us are only humans. We cut trees and make buildings in the forest, harming the animals. Imagine people charging in your home and ruining your place. You now have nowhere to live. We blame animals for hurting us, but actually, we hurt them primarily because of fear. Rishona Chopra Grade VI Gyanshree School

Poem on Books - Arav Agarwal

Image
Oh, books! They are lovely; When I see the books, I go crazy. They have many new things to share: How many times I read a book, I don't care. They are inspiring; And all books are fascinating. They take me to their own world; And I like them so much. Name: Arav Agarwal Grade: 6A Billabong High International School, Thane

Their Worst Clothes - Rishona Chopra

Image
Not every school allows their children to wear their dirtiest clothes to school, but as usual, Tomoe does!  Wearing the dirtiest clothes to school so that there is no worry about the student's clothes getting torn or soiled is a very good idea. At my earlier school, they used to allow us to dance in the rain, play in the mud, jump over fences and do many more fun things. The idea of letting children play is all about letting them enjoy and cherish the fun of childhood. At my earlier school, wheat used to grow in the gardens, so my friend and I used to go into the gardens and pluck the grain and eat it as it was so that nobody would take them. We used to hide them under our tables on the floor and, without washing them, eat them again. Childhood is the best time to enjoy this fun, so why not cherish our time and make the best of it!

Happy Father's Day! - Rishona Chopra

Image
This is for my father, Who always stood up for his daughter, He cared for me, Like family. He told me to brush my teeth, And stay tidy and neat. He played with me all sorts of games, He stood with me through my little pains, We have lots of fun, Yet I don't realize he loves me more than anyone. We often talk about the unconditional love of a mother, But in the world, there is the love of a father, He often scolds me, and I sold him, He allowed me to go to the gym and for a swim, He was there with me to help me face my fear of dogs, He is my father and my god. I say I don't love him, But really, I do love him more than anyone in the world, yes, I do. Rishona Chopra Grade VI Gyanshree School

The Art of Storytelling - Rishona Chopra

Image
Storytelling ain't something everybody can do, You need some content and rhythm too! A little music with some effects, Everything should be set and perfectly correct. Just add some feelings, The story could be lovely, so it works like healing! Just add some voice modulation and thought, So it stays in people's minds as if it was taught. The story could have a moral, Or a quarrel. All you need to do is hook the audience, By being a little more patient! Like in a movie theatre where people feel the water splash, Hook them with your words, so they clap with a clash. Make people feel like they were in the story Make them feel all happy with glory. The fundamental trick is just to feel the theme, And the story will come out like a beautiful dream! Along with storytelling, we need to be good listeners too, We need to understand the story and try our best to reflect too. If you know how to tell a story, Make one yourself and tell me the story quickly! Rishona Chopra Grade VI Gyanshree

It's because of you - Rishona Chopra

Image
It is because of you - that is what we say. We blame people for our troubles and failures, and believe me, even you do. If you get a cold, you blame another person in the family who also had a cold. You don't blame yourself for having a weak immune system! If you couldn't go somewhere, then you blame the weather. When you spill water on your t-shirt, you blame the person who bumped into you. When we blame others, we are avoiding some truth about ourselves. We can blame other planets for our fault; we blame nature, people, and even our parents! It's always easy to blame but challenging to find and correct your faults. This also connects with one of Dr Sibal's values - Making mistakes, and accepting flaws.

Ignorance - Rishona Chopra

Image
Ignorance is when we ignore the law of nature. When we think life will never end and we are immortal and will live forever is ignorance. When we forget that things change, we and ignorant.  If you think you have come out of the world of ignorance and have achieved something great, and now you are more extraordinary, this thought simply displays that you are in the world of ignorance. Ignorance is thinking that you are greater or your success will never end. Once you achieve something big and instead of being greedy for more, you cherish it: being free from ignorance. When the thought does not come to your mind that your success will never end, you are free. The most prominent example is Lord Buddha. Did he ever show off his success and strength? No, because he was free from ignorance. And as he rightly said, desire is the cause of pain. This doesn't mean we shouldn't have ambitions and dreams. There is a simple difference between the desire of want and need. If you desire to be

Ignorance, Evolution and the Avatar - Anvesha Rana

Image
It is uncanny that we sometimes just need a short story or a mishappening to make us realize our position in this circle of life. We all are human, yet we stand at different steps of the same staircase. Our mindset defines the place we idealize, but there are many positions to choose from:  Realization of Ignorance is the first stage of development. It is the state where we think we are superior to our fellow beings, but in reality, we are just the same. Ignorance makes us turn a blind eye to the tiny creatures; it fills us with a sense of pride and destroys the humility within us. When the worms discovered the ray of light, they felt that it was meant for them to find and that they were special, but if the worms had been a little wiser, they would have decided to share this finding with the entire the worm population for everyone's wellbeing. Ignorance makes us immature, and after some time, it will cause us to rot. There is no development in ignorance; when we blindfold new learn

The Worm I want to be: Story Reflection - Anusha Jain

Image
My reflection from the story  Ignorance, Evolution and Avatar After reading this beautiful story about enlightenment and awakening, I think most people would want to be like the last group of worms which grow wings and fly away from the canal, those yogis, saints and sages who raise beyond the belt of ignorance to the supreme freedom of spirit. It is wiser to first be the initial group of worms who represent the first stage of ignorance, those who cross the physical and vital evolution phase and rise to the higher mental being and live content and satisfied. It is because we live in a world where we run  an endless rat race and chase after money. We are told to make a promising career and think about our aspirations. So, practically, if we can become like the first group of worms, we would be able to decide about our future in a better way whilst living up to society's expectations. By doing so, we would be able to help other people attain enlightenment and make a difference. Anush

The worm I want to be - Rishona Chopra

Image
 I want to be a worm who grew wings and flew away from the canal. They didn't think they were more extraordinary because of little light but tried to attain peace and freedom and did not let pride and ignorance touch them. The first group of worms represents the first stage of evolution in ignorance. They are those human beings who have crossed the physical and most crucial phase of evolution and risen to the consciousness of the higher mental being. The second group of worms represents the next stage of evolution in which human consciousness or the mind opens itself to a higher light beyond the rational mind and receives intuitions and inspirations from it but still lives within the world of ignorance.  The last group of worms which grow wings and fly away from the canal are those human souls who proceed further and rise beyond the belt of human mental ignorance to the supreme freedom of the spirit.  I want to be like the last group. That person who would raise beyond the belt of

All you need is Hope, Humility and Love! I am sure it will make your life full of happiness and love. Rishona Chopra Grade VI Gyanshree School

A Trip To a Hot Spring - Amaira Bhati

Image
It was getting dark when all the children of Tomoe Gakuen were ready for a three-day trip. It was almost time for dinner when all fifty students had finally arrived. The Headmaster hadn't brought along any food supplies with him, and he had an amusing thing for the students to do.  The Headmaster sent all the kids to buy the veggies and fish. He knew that some kids would be afraid of this, but he wanted to make them experience the essential things in life. This simple action of buying vegetables could make them more open and make them learn more about doing calculations. People at the market were eating their food and asking the students about them, and the students were supposed to reply politely. Some students took all the fish and veggies, but others either got lost or didn't get it.  Some children went missing and had even cut their feet in the sand since it was filled with glass. This might have not been fun for some students, but in the end, it enclosed a lesson for life.

Getting To Know You,life - Reveda Bhatt

Image
So, today, I'll tell you a truth that humans need to face boldly. First of all, let's ask ourselves once what life means? I think life is just a path leading to a very mournful destination- death! When you realize the meaning of this one statement profoundly, the first question popping into your mind is that 'Then what am I struggling for!?' If this is it, then you are back on the right path - I mean working really hard to earn money, not being a spendthrift, saving it for your future generations and then, after getting old, waiting for 'the payback' from your children for what all you've done for them but when you get what you expected or have more than you expected, it is too late. At that particular point in time, all the places in the world long for your presence to be there, but your life doesn't allow you to, and by the time the reality hits you, you get a callback from where it all began. So, see, where you are, at this moment, this place is uniqu

Acoustic Life - Reveda Bhatt

Image
Our fate and will to live, Opens the lifelong gate. Our love for others, Makes us feel as gentle as a dove, But when it comes to playing the blame game, We should act like a human, And not an animal who's not tame! Being the way you are, Never makes anyone feel bad. It makes them feel good, Even when they are sad! So, just be kind to everyone, lad, And, with following that, you'll never go mad! Never hurt someone, And, if you do, You'll never get along with anyone! And if you say sorry too, That wound won't fill, Just give them some time, And they'll be talking to you of their own will! - Reveda Bhatt  Grade IX The Aryan School Reveda has signed up for the Internship Program at the National Office of the Learning Forward India Foundation; she helps with social media outreach for My Good School.

Tomoe Gakuen - Rishona Chopra

Image
A unique school it is, A bright shine it has, No rules for studying or going in the pool, It was truly so cool! The headmaster was a musician, And he had great ambitions! He wanted students to learn with passion and fun, He let the play in the gardens and run! I wish I too went to this school, There truly would be no strict rules! They let students learn at their pace, So that they learnt with grace. They visited a hot spring at such a young age, It kept them so engaged.  It is such a unique place, It was something to embrace! I wish I studied there, But I too have a lot of fun here! Rishona Chopra Grade VI Gyanshree School

My Tantrums As A Child - Gaurangi Rastogi

Image
 My childhood was a colourful one. Full of life, fun and tantrums. Whenever I talk about my childhood to my family, they say, “Beta, you were so fussy about anything you wanted.”  I still remember one of them: a fuss about a dress!  Really on a dress!  I was 5 and very passionate about Disney princesses; my favourite was Cinderella. I wanted a dress like hers, which was unavailable in my hometown. So, I told my Papa to ask my aunt and bring it whenever she visited me. I did not eat anything for weeks when she got the dress. I rejoiced and kept it for my next birthday. For years, I just kept procrastinating about wearing the dress. It’s just kept in my closet and has fungus on it.  There are many stories like this in my life, but this story made me realise that there is a reason behind our parent’s deeds.  Gaurangi Rastogi  VII A  The Doon Girls School

I wish I were a student at Tomoe,  so free and yet so connected,  I could have met the headmaster,  and made friends with Totto-Chan.  If I were a student at Tomoe,  I would have visited the Hot Spring,  while enjoying the new bling.  The Souvenir photo would have cracked me up,  and the Oops boy would have been a fun hub,  I really wish I were at Tomoe,  for it would be so lively.  If I were at Tomoe, I would have learnt Eurythmics,  Though it would be funny to be so Rhythmical.  I do wish I were at Tomoe,  but I already have my own right here,  which is My Good School !

Hot Springs - Rishona Chopra

A hot spring is a spring of naturally hot water, typically heated by subterranean volcanic activity. The Blue Lagoon (Iceland) is the most famous hot spring in the world. Yes, there are hot springs in India - such as Manikaran. Having trips to hot springs is a fascinating thing. You can do several things like - - Relaxation - Swim Most of all, you have a natural spa with just you around! I have never been to a hot spring before, but I wish I could have a trip to a hot spring. Maybe our school could take us to a hot spring! Rishona Chopra Grade VI Gyanshree School

Eurythmics - Rishona Chopra

Image
Eurythmics is the art of rhythmic education. We can listen to a song, but very few can relate to the beats and rhythm. Once you do that, mastering dance and music is like taking candy from a baby with hard work and dedication. Rhythmic education makes the body and mind equally developed in harmony and peace. At Tomoe, the headmaster has added Eurythmics as a subject in his school. He teaches students to change their body steps with the beats. It increases focus too. When I was learning the piano, my piano teacher sang a song, and I had to play the beats with one key. Now, I understand he was teaching me Eurythmics. I am grateful to him for teaching me what I know today. Having eyes but not seeing beauty; having ears, but no hearing music; having minds but not perceiving truth; having heart that are never moved and therefore never set on fire are the things to fear of. Children could be taught to hear and feel music in their minds rather than just with their ears; how to make them feel

The 22 Values - Rishona Chopra

Image
Joy Of Learning (JOL) is based on The Little Book of Values: Educating Children to Become Thinking, Responsible and Caring Citizens. Learning happens through these values. The future of education will be built on these values alone:  Appreciation, Caring, Cooperation, Courage, Freedom, Friendship, Happiness, Honesty, Hope, Humility, Love, Patience, Peace, Quality, Respect, Responsibility, Simplicity, Thoughtfulness, Tolerance, Trust, Understanding & Unity. These values make up our life. We don't have to do anything significant to master these. Just opening a door for someone, bringing a smile to someone's face, making friends with someone, trusting someone, understanding someone, and other little acts can do it all. Why don't we promise ourselves that we will try our best to inculcate these values? Rishona Chopra  Grade VI  Gyanshree School
