Understanding - Anvesha Rana

Understanding is not just about learning but also about living. When others confess their mistakes, lies or problems to us, we often turn a blind eye towards them and do not listen. Still, we need to be humble enough to understand what they are going through, be kind enough to give them a shoulder and be trustworthy sufficient to accept their reality. Treat others the way you wish to be treated. Each person deserves love and affection just the way we do. Understanding is not a simple task; it requires the power to trust and tolerate and the necessity of being thoughtful while observing the simplicity at the heart of the matter and eventually giving in honestly to love. If we can understand, then we can trust. If we can understand, then we can be patient; if we can understand, we can tolerate and understand; only we can love. At My Good School, understanding is experienced at its core. We initially listen to each other and then begin to understand one another. This is followed by a bond

What do I Value the most ? - Anvesha Rana

   Joyful Days and Fun chimes ,  With our loved ones are the best times, Laughter surrounds us, and smiles spread,  As family and friends meet. We may always want to be there,  With our family and friends, But Alas! Not how our life wishes.  But the cycle continues.  And being the captain hurts, For wasting time, we can’t afford And to be lost amid not a good record.  Time continues,  Living never stops,  It does not wait for you, It goes on.  But as time passes,  We ameliorate and improve,  Unlike stagnant water, we always groove For we become better with every move.  I value my loved ones for being with me,  I love my time, for it is precious,  I love my Improvements as I move forward,  I love my life the most.  Anvesha Rana,  Grade 10-B,  Gyanshree School

The Power Of Love - Anvesha Rana

                             Earlier I was a mysterious soul, Inside me, I had a deep hole.  Which neither time nor work could reap,  All I needed was a retreat.  The vacancy grew larger,  The loneliness grew bigger,  But I still lurked in the corner,  Still searching for something warmer.  But then I saw a beautiful white dove,  Which perched up my tree,  Once it went, it came later affectionately,  And became a family guarantee!   I realized my family,  My mother, father and sister,  I saw them care, caress, fluster and support,  All in the name of love.  I understood my friends,  Calling me to make amends,  Or to catch up with the latest trends,  All in the name of love.  Then I discovered my passion,  Which taught me dedication And devotion and compassion,  All in the name of love.  I learnt a lot from them,  But I also learnt a lot from myself,  Which made me learn one more thing And that is Self-Love.  Thank you for  making me realize,  making me believe  And making me feel  The

Swami and Friends - Anvesha Rana

Friendship makes us foresee all difficulties, it enables the world to go blind and our friends to shine bright like a new ray. Swami, Rajam and  Mani had to meet each other at any cost; despite the heat that hit their heads, the tar that burnt their feet and the lone streets that gave shudders, the friends had to come together.  This stubborn hope for meeting our friends, whether it rains or snows, hails or blows, windy or stormy, sunny or cloudy, is what makes friendship so great. The eagerness to meet our friends with the same smile, vigour and energy, as if meeting them for the first time and listening to their talks, as if they were the most essential thing in the world, is what makes a friend the best.  Swami, the however kind he may be at heart, is a leisurely mind. His brain dwells on the tale behind the sum when he witnesses math sums rather than quickly solving them. It’s true sometimes it’s simply impossible to concentrate - we just want to have fun, but seeing the complex nu

Totto-chan's Life - Anvesha Rana

Totto-chan has taught me many things, from selflessness to compassion, curiosity to care, pity to love. She has taught us innumerable life lessons just through her mischievous nature and jovial personality.  Totto-chan had participated in a sports event and that single event had the most profound effect on her. Similarly, even the sports day at my school is not only a day full of fun but also a day submerged in learning.  The sports day taught me acceptance, that even though I did not win anything, I needed to accept that fact. It also encourages appreciation for others, I learn to acknowledge the rewards of my mates even when I don't have any. It teaches me to care for those who might have hurt themselves while playing, but the most important lesson on the sports day is cooperation, understanding and following your team and leading them in the right direction. The sports day is a day oozing with fun, learning, sports and values.  Totto-chan had a fun pet, Rocky, who was a German s

Coffee with the Coach - Anvesha Rana

                                            Maybe it was a grandparent, a colleague or a teacher, someone older, patient and wiser, who ignited your lost mind; crackled the fire of learning in you when you were young and impassioned. It perhaps helped you view the world as a more profound place and gave you sound advice to guide your way through it. It was my teacher, maybe for you, it would be someone else but... Wouldn't you like to see that one person again, to ask the more important questions that still haunt you and receive wisdom for life the way it is now? Coffee with the Coach is a conversation between a teacher and his student about almost everything. Most importantly, about the 22 immutable values cornerstone of My Good School. Coffee with the Coach is a magical chronicle of their time spent together. Anvesha Rana, Grade 10-B, Gyanshree School
