Patience - Value Of The Month at My Good School

Hello Everyone. We are excited to share our poster for the value of August - Patience. 

Patience is a significant value for the students to develop as Patience is the key to success and strengthens our self-belief. I believe our classroom teaches us to live in harmony with our environment, which creates balance and harmony within us, developing Patience. The blackboard has always stood the test of time, teaching us patiently over the years to build our curiosity and think innovatively. 

Do you all agree that at My Good School, we are building the value of Patience by consistently reading every Sunday and listening patiently to each other, slowly helping us to learn and grow and experience the joy of learning?

Share your experiences and stories through written blogs, graphics, drawings or audio. You can email it to your school's blog coordinator mentioned in the poster.

Patience is the balm, the healer and the power behind learning.

Step-by-step, day in and day out, we keep schooling ourselves; this cannot happen without perseverance. 

The Teacher, the Student, and the Blackboard have all stood the test of time; only the colour or materials may have changed - digital, intelligent, white...interactive. 

What is most crucial? 
Understanding comes with time, Patience and perseverance.

75 Year of Indian Independence, all of us are here this August to celebrate Patience, the value that alone keeps the world sane.

Let's Blog, email your thought and post to us at; visuals add value to your writings, and finally, stories retold are the best way to take learning forward at My Good School.

Amateur Drama - Rishona Chopra

Presenting a play truly takes effort. After all that practice, you need lots of confidence. 

I love acting and trust me, I get really nervous. I tell my parents to sit in a corner if I am acting so they can't see me! After the show, I am really confident and happy. The most embarrassing (well, sort of) role was when I had to act as a man. I didn't like the part, but I did like it a little - It was a mix of feelings. There was also this role I loved- When I had to do the voicing of Dorothy. I liked it, but I was so nervous that I had to practice after school too!

The audition is the worst part - You have to perform in front of students from other classes, and then you don't know whether you will be selected. At some point, I wish I were selected and then feel I wish I wasn't!

Totto-chan was very sure about what she wanted; her path was clear in front of her. I wish I were like her - having the courage to decide on a play herself. I just wish I could see her play!

A play, a show
It's something that slowly grows.
A little confidence,
Each character has to have a difference.
Something unique,
Maybe antique
The twist in the script,
Perhaps as old as a manuscript!
The acting,
And all the running!
The effort counts,
And the fun spreads all around!

Don't know what to write - Rishona Chopra

I simply can't understand what to write,
But I want to write as it gives me delight.
It's six in the morning,
And all plants are flowering,
And sitting in nature, I want to write,
Something or the other, something right.
Writing just means to write whatever comes to your mind,
That feeling you just have to find!
So, here I am writing about something that came to my mind.
Still thinking of a topic I should be assigned.
And now that I wrote this,
I know what to write, and that's bliss.
I got another topic in my mind,
That I won't tell now, maybe another time.

My Ambition - Yashraj Sharma

People always call me a curious boy

Who is interested in asking why

And due to my why, I may 

Become a famous guy.

With some surprising ambition

To become a scientist.

I want to know why wood should float

And why lead and marble sink

Why does the wind blow

And why do we all eat and drink?

I want to know what makes clouds

And why they snake across the sky

Why does the Sun set behind the hill

And why do all flowers die?

I want to know why fish have gills. 

And why the Earth has hills?

Why can boys not fly?

And why does rain fall from the sky?

I want to know why charcoal gives smoke.

And it's not the same for stones.

Some of my why's are not hard to answer.

If you will try, but no one ever yet

Has found the reason for my ambition-

The Lost Resource - Rishona Chopra


It's July 28 today - we've just crossed into the second half of the year, but we have used up our allowance of natural resources for all of 2022.*

Every year, Earth Overshoot Day has been coming sooner and sooner.

This talks about natural resources being used quickly, but shall I tell you one resource we used so much that it is instilled in us? That resource is anger. Don't you think you have used this resource too much in the past few months or forgotten about months? Even in the past week, you might have used it, or even today, one resource we have not touched on is Happiness.

Happiness is a resource in abundance and never ends, you can use it then and now and as long as you live, but for some reason, most of us don't use this resource, which is perhaps the most essential source of life our entire life depends on.

Just like a car needs petroleum to move, our life needs Happiness to work. Today let's select and right down the times when we were truly happy. While remembering that day, let's pray today!

Jealousy- ‘ The necessary evil’ - Gaurangi Rastogi

J-e-a-l-o-u-s-y is the word we experience and notice everything. Elderly people say that Jealousy can ruin everything, and it's true. Jealousy can be good or even harmful. Even when I speak that Jealousy can be beneficial, they ask how. Let me tell you an example of my story. 

When I was in grade V, my parents would talk about my cousin, that she is good at that, this... It would make me so sad that I fought with my parents saying I don't have my identity or what. When they said, "Beta! You are more than them; you can achieve anything, so I started working hard towards academics, curricular activities, and sports. After I worked hard on my achievements, nobody told me I was inferior to others. This is the good side; the wrong side is more than the opposite of this example. 

If we always get jealous of others, we never achieve the achievements we deserve, like- becoming a vice president of one of your school's leading clubs, the dancer, singer, speaker or anything you say.  

Jealousy always made me depressed, aggressive, or emotional. Life has competition, but there is always a competitor with whom you will fight forever, and that's yourself.

A New Day - Anvesha Rana

A New Day is a new beginning, 
it's an old ending and 
something exciting. 

What it holds, 
we don't know. 
What it shows, 
we don't know
 For we only know it's a new day, 
   and it ought to be good. 

Bend forward and soak in the sun, 
Lay back and let the wind run, 
Enjoy the new day 
for it is only one. 

Look forward to learning more, 
Vow yourself to curse less, 
Be who you want to be
for a new day is a unique opportunity.

Learn to live, 
Learn to love, 
Learn to laugh, 
For the new day is only

Thank You My Gurus - Gaurangi Rastogi

This story is about my life which took me on a new path of achievement…. 

Date-1st  April 2017 

The day is crucial for me because I joined my school this year. This year was so topsy-turvy as it is difficult to settle without parents. 

Life took off like a rocket from that year. My first achievement was to win a merit position in elocutions, quizzes, and co-curricular activities. I never won a single prize at my school in my hometown. Soon after, I met some very good people in my life who gave a kickstart to a better version of myself; guess who they are? They were Sandeep Sir, Sumali Mam, and Abhikshit Sir. Let me tell you why they are my most prominent gurus who gave me a chance to know myself a little more. 

  • Sandeep, Sir- He gave me the motivation to work, understand my capabilities, and gave me back my immense passion for Books which I lost for a few years because of a few people who used to tease me and made me so upset that for weeks I started questioning myself that “What is wrong if you focus only on your academics,co-curricular activities or any field?” A big shout out to Sir, saying 

         Thank You, Sir, for the opportunity to help me learn the skill of writing! 

  • Sumali Ma’am- Ma’am, you always gave me opportunities to polish my skills which I  never realized. You helped me to understand the language of Shakespeare. In the competition, I didn’t win anything, but you gave me the prize I craved for the feedback on my performance. 

  • Abhikshit Sir- He is the physics teacher in our class. My classmates and I were stressed about the physics exam because we didn’t understand the numerical when Sir called us during our prep and made us understand everything. He always had my back whenever I was under stress or under too much pressure. Thank you, Sir. 

These teachers were my back for all these years full of learning, friendship, trust, and integrity…

A Big Shout to all of you   


                           Thank You For Becoming my support system…

Mind Over Matter - Rishona Chopra

Controlling over feelings is quite essential. We often get irritated over the most minor things. Like on the dog barking a lot or on the printer that wasn't working. We all get annoyed at the smallest of things and shout, scream and even start to do physical fighting! But, when you look back and think about that problem, you realise it wasn't worth it.  

Scientifically we say - the mind controls us, but spiritually, we say - We control the mind. Controlling the mind is listening to what is correct. Our mind knows what is wrong and right but even knowing that we listen to what our mind says, even if it is wrong. 

Mind over matter is simply about controlling your feelings and not letting them get the better of you.

The Fourth Type Of Army - Reveda Bhatt

We’ve all heard about the three forces - Air Force, guarding via sky. Navy, protecting through waters and Army, defending our land.

But did you know there’s a fourth?

Yeah, there is! It’s the COASTGUARD which makes up the fourth force, though you may think that as it is related to waters, it might come under Navy; no, it’s different.

I had no idea until this summer when we visited South India. On the internet, we were going through the places we could visit when my father told us that we’d visit the Indian Coastguard cruise; I, having no damn clue about what Coastguard is, just jumped, excited, hearing the word ‘cruise.’ The day soon arrived, and at noon, we were on the ship with its captain; well, the ship was docked, so it didn’t sail, but being on board a vessel itself is different, so I didn’t mind about the sailing part. The ship was ICGS RANI ABBAKKA, a patrolling ship of the Indian Coastguard.

We entered the ship with its captain, saw all its interior mechanisms, and came to know its functions and how it goes for patrolling all around India’s coastline, we had a conversation with its captain in their meeting room, and that’s when he told and explained to us that they make up the fourth force of our country, though not quite well known. Still, they play an essential role in our security too!

India has a coastline of about 7500 kilometres, which is mainly guarded by them, the ship we went on sets out to check all’s fine and that nobody’s trying to attack our coastline.

So, basically, people, whatever might happen, and whatever we may do, we need four of them to keep us safe, they risk their lives for us, but there’s one thing they demand: your belief in them!

Coffee With The Coach : Emotions - Anvesha Rana

Today We Talk About Emotions

Don't cling to things because everything is impermanent. Learn to detach yourself from emotions. But detachment doesn't mean you don't let the experience penetrate you. On the contrary, you let it penetrate fully. That's how you can leave it. 

Take any emotion - Grief for a loved one or pain or fear from a task. If you hold back on these emotions and don't allow yourself to go through them, you can never get to being detached; you're too busy being afraid. You're afraid of the pain; you're afraid of the grief. You're afraid of the vulnerability that loving entails. 

But by throwing yourself into these emotions, by allowing yourself to dive in, all the way, over your head even, you experience them fully and completely. You know what pain is. You know what grief is. And only then you can say, 'All right, I have experienced that emotion. I recognize that emotion. Now I need to detach from that emotion for a moment.'

How we feel lonely, sometimes to the point of tears, but we don't let those tears come because we are not supposed to cry. Or how we feel sorry for what we have done, but we don't say anything because we're frozen with the fear of what those words might do to the relationship. 

Instead, our approach should be the exact opposite. Turn on the faucet. Wash with the emotion. It won't hurt you. It will only help. If you let the fear inside and pull it on like a familiar shirt, you can say to yourself, "All right, it's just fear; I don't have to let it control me. I see it for what it is."

Same for loneliness: you let go, let the tears flow, feel it completely - but eventually be able to say, "All right, that was my moment with loneliness. I am not afraid of feeling lonely, but now I will put that loneliness aside and know that there are other emotions in the world, and I will experience them as well."

"Shabby Old School" - Rishona Chopra

Embracing your school is quite important. Whatever school you go into must have something special about it. Like Tomoe, it gives you the freedom to choose, and the teachers are pretty understanding. Loving your school and standing up for it is excellent quality. 

I love my school! Its teachers are pretty fun and understanding. Gyanshree is a volcano of opportunities, and I am honoured to be in this school. For me, my school is heaven. Whenever I enter it, I feel like this was the best day ever. Going offline from online was a pleasure, meeting my earlier teachers during dispersal and knowing they hadn't forgotten me. 

Gyanshree School is a wonderful school, 
Inside out, it's a wonderful school!
Gyanshree makes me feel proud,
It makes me confident in a crowd,
Its teachers are great,
It's the best school in the whole state!

Thinking about Gyanshree, I had almost forgotten about the school that helped me find my passion: My Good School!

My Good School is a wonderful school,
Inside out, it's a wonderful school!
I learnt all the values needed,
After going to My Good School, we all succeeded!
There are several things you can do,
Each thing is new!

Being Lost - Reveda Bhatt

Being lost, being different is not at all bad; we, in that state, create a world of our own in the world in which we only own a few of its bits-

Comprehending this, what do you think? Is it better to own a non-existent world or to keep on struggling to hold something in this world where we all are?

It's like sometimes, you're deep, swimming in your thoughts, and most of the time, you know that you are dreaming and trust me, you will not long to wake up from those! Sometimes, having a hell of stress from this world on your mind, closing your eyes, opening the door to your own world and just staying there for a while feels like heaven and gives you wings (inspired by the tagline of Red Bull…lol).

Well, moving ahead with that, sometimes that happens with me too, wait though; I'll reframe it as per the truth-many a time! Remembering when I used to stare blankly at a point, lying in my ICU bed, my father sometimes asked me, "Wait, let me reframe that again, many times," Why are you lost?" Okay, I won't blame him for that, maybe he thinks that it is a side-effect of my "three-year-old diffuse axonal brain injury grade IV," Woah! That is a very complex name (lol again)! So, everyone dreams while sleeping, but why not sometimes dream while awake? You know, but that feeling of being elsewhere while being somewhere, when you're just sitting idle, gives you the kind of calmness you can't find anywhere!

Plus-point, looking at a point when lost in thoughts also increases your confidence level because you just aren't bothered about all happening around you at that moment!

Now, think again, if you previously denied the 'in-your-own-world-existence', isn't it cool?

Okay, so that was a lot of thinking for this one, getting it over with, try it once and fill me in about it!

प्रकृति और मै - आरव अग्रवाल

जैसे बोलू और भैरा बहुत अच्छे मित्र थे, साथ मे स्कूल जाते थे। बोलू को प्रकृति अच्छी लगती थी और जैसे ही वह स्कूल पहुँचता, वह खिड़की खोलकर बाहर देखने लगता। उसे बहुत मज़ा आता था। बोलू की तरह मुझे भी सुबह खिड़की से बाहर देखना बहुत अच्छा लगता है। हरे-भरे पेड़ और पौधे, हरियाली और ठंडी वायु मुझे बहुत अच्छी लगती है। प्रकृति मे मेरा मन शांत रहता है और मुझे लिखने की कल्पना आती है। प्रकृति से हमे यह सीख मिलती है कि हमे स्वार्थरहित रहना चाहिए।

Autobiography of a Pillow - Rishona Chopra

Hi there! It's me who gives you a good night's sleep and helps you maintain a lifestyle. Wait, you don't recognize me? I am your one and only pillow! 

This message is specifically for those naughty kids who think I don't know or feel anything. It all started with hitting me out of anger and then for fun, too, and they made it a game. They made a game for pillow wrestling! I mean, what do they think? That I am some non-living person who has no life? 

This is injustice, and I even went to the court of pillows, and the judge declared that they would take revenge. So little kids and old adults, listen up; you better stop now!

My Passion - Rishona Chopra

Starting with a dream to become a teacher,

Thinking that I had that feature,

Then wanted to be a ballerina,

And present a show in Argentina!

I then wanted to be a rebel,

Or become a fairy and cast a spell.

Now finally, I want to become a doctor,

And a wonderful daughter.

A neurosurgeon perhaps,

And if I fail, I wouldn't collapse.

I have so many dreams to fulfil,

I really don't know which one to start with!

I could be a writer,

And be even brighter,

Most important of all, I want to be a good person,

And make sure things don't worsen!

खिड़की के पास - रिशोना चोपड़ा


जब मैं कक्षा में प्रवेश करता हूं तो सभी छात्र कुर्सी पर खड़े होकर एसी बंद कर देते हैं या कभी-कभी एसी भी काम नहीं करता है! इसके बाद, मैं कुर्सी पर खड़ा होता हूं और खिड़कियां खोलता हूं और पूरी कक्षा हवा और बारिश का आनंद लेती है। इस तरह हम स्कूल में बारिश और प्रकृति का आनंद लेते हैं
