Thinking for oneself - Nishan Karki

Image
Thinking for oneself "Its starting point has always been a willingness to think for oneself, a feeling of respect and concern for our fellow creatures, and a refusal to be complicit in abuse, and people of such conviction come from everywhere." —Matthew Scully   Thinking for oneself is one of the most important parts of life. It plays a crucial role in one's life. One should also think about his own motives instead of those of others. Well, it is also important to think for others, but before that, thinking for oneself is more crucial.   Arthur Schopenhauer, a German philosopher, said that:   A library may be very large, but if it is in disorder, it is less useful than one that is small but well-arranged. In the same way, a man may have a great mass of knowledge, but if he has yet to work it up by thinking it over for himself, it has much less value than a far smaller amount that he has thoroughly pondered. So, one may have a great deal of knowledge, but if he

My World of Stories - Anvesha Rana

The Library may be better and far,  but the one at my home, to it, has no par.  The Library may have more books,  but the one I have has more love but no looks.  I love my library,  may it be small or short,  but life is also not counted by years but by friends,  a library is not counted by books but ends.  The friends in the corner of my room,  the lessons in life loom, The Library has taught me everything,  from love to compassion, all of them ring.  I have a friend called Harry Potter,  a mate Percy Jackson,  I know a lovely man who is Morrie Schwartz,  and the most beautiful Totto-Chan.  The Library has opened my world,  it may have been small once,  but now it's twice that same once.  Let's all read,  for one life may be monotonous,  but hundreds will make that one super anonymous.  Anvesha Rana,  Grade 10-B,  Gyanshree School

The Library Car - Rishona Chopra

For me, my favourite place in the entire school is the library. I just wish I could stay in the library for the whole day! Once I start on a book, I don't want to leave it until I have read it all. Whether it's fiction or biography, they are so fun to read.  A library is not just about books; it's about the variety you keep and the environment you create. The comfy chairs with a wide variety of books and you feel like you could sit there all day. I wish I was at Tomoe, so I could spend the entire day at the library!   On Wednesday was my first library period in the old library. It was so fun. Although for the period the librarian was telling us the rules and regulations, it was great. I can't wait to read all the books there. Now, Wednesday is my favourite day in School! I am waiting to issue a book there and just can't wait for Wednesday to come.                                            The library is where I go,                                            It make

Starting a new session at school - Rishona Chopra

Image
Last year, I was in fifth grade and had made beautiful memories. The best moments were when we did the Math Week Quiz. Our class didn't win but what mattered was that we did our best. The Science Week where we did projects and then the last day of fifth grade when I went to school and met some of my classmates and teachers physically for the first time! Another moment was when Sandeep Dutt visited our school! I was really nervous but overcame it, and it turned out to be the best day ever. Now I am starting a new session, I got my books, and I am excited. I'll be in the Senior Wing! I can't wait to see the extensive library on the third floor. When we were in primary, we used to go to the smaller library on the ground floor, but now I'll go to the big one and read every single book there. I will also be learning French!
