The Sunday School 8th January 2023 - Elizabeth Philip

While reading A Wedding to Remember from Sudha Murty's book   Wise and Otherwise , we found a reference to her novel Mahashweta . What is a novel? A novel is a long-written story about imaginary people and events. (Collins dictionary) a long printed story about fictional characters and events (Cambridge dictionary) an invented prose narrative that is usually long and complex and deals mainly with human experience through a usually connected sequence of events (Merriam Webster dictionary) a story long enough to fill a complete book, in which the characters and events are generally imaginary (Oxford dictionary) The novel is a genre, or kind, of literature. It is fiction, which means the writer invented the story. One thing leads to another. Now, we need to know what genre and literature mean.   Let's start with literature . Literature is writing that is usually considered to be a work of art. It differs from written works such as cookbooks, trave

Alone But Not Lonely - Reveda Bhatt

"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger Stand a little taller. Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone What doesn't kill you makes a fighter Footsteps even lighter Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone." -That was Kelly Clarkson. Finding me alone somewhere makes you think that I'm lonely. See, you got me all wrong there. That was my "me-time"-not thinking about the past, not living in the present and not worrying about the future; just letting time leave me behind for a while. Drop it. Coming back, I think once you discover the way to your inner self, it automatically comes to you and then, you have a true friend and a true mate who truly exists but is truly invisible or maybe just too timid to come out. May call it timid because your inner self is afraid that it may lose its trueness in this superficial world on coming out. So, the deeper it is, the better it is. These six lines each carry a meaning distinct from the othe

Ignorance, Evolution and the Avatar - Anvesha Rana

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

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. Akshita Rathore Class X A The Fabindia School
