Success is Good but Significance is Better - Tenzin Norsang

Picture Courtesy: An unknown author said it so well, “Success is good, but significance is better.”  People of today’s world have come to think that money is everything to gain happiness in one’s life.  Well, there is no doubt that you need it to lead a beautiful life, but it provides us bliss only to some extent. It can buy us the most luxurious and fancy things in this world. But still, it cannot buy us internal peace, true love and happiness.  We seek all these only when we give ourselves to others that we find true merriness.  A wise man once said, “Selfless service is the rent that one should pay to live on this planet.” Through selfless service, we make others jubilant and content. It also soothes our hearts with pleasure. It fills our minds with positivity and everlasting memories.  Helping others leads you to the path of finding your purpose in life. It also assists you in discovering inner peace.  Wea

Coffee With The Coach : Money - Anvesha Rana

Today We Talk About Money We have got a form of brainwashing in our country. Do you know how they brainwash us? They repeat something over and over. Owning things is good. More money is good. More property is good. More commercialism is good. More is good. More is good. We repeat it - and have it repeated to us - over and over until nobody bothers to think otherwise. The average person is so fogged up by all this,  and he has no perspective on what's really important anymore. Wherever we might go in life, we meet people wanting to gobble up something new. Gobble up a new car. Gobble up a new piece of land. Gobble up the latest toy. And then they want to tell about it. 'Guess what I got? Guess what I got?'. These people are so hungry for love that they accept substitutes. They are embracing material things and expecting a sort of hug back. But it never works. We can't substitute material things for love, gentleness, tenderness, or a sense of comradeship.  Money is not a

Thank you - Rishona Chopra

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

The Life of 10 Rupees - Rishona Chopra

Image courtesy Coins and More Blog Good Afternoon! I am...well, I don't reveal my name so just call me 10 Rupees. I am unique because I am hated and loved at the same time. But how, you ask? 10 Rupees. What all could you buy with it - Just 2-3 toffees, right? What is the value, and that's what some think? They do not respect me and therefore hate me. But for some, those 2-3 toffees are worth having, seem a box of gold! That is their meal for the day, which brings a smile to their faces! See the different sides of just me, what do you think? Do you value me or leave that do you appreciate what you get? If you could get a huge, delicious meal in just 10 rupees, wouldn't you care more? But do think that if you had nothing and just a few toffees, I bet you would gobble up all the toffees or save some for the other day. Shall I tell you something? Don't think I am boasting! I have much more value in this world. Take 10 Rupees to buy some wool and sticks and start knitting! M

Friendship - Advita Chauhan

Friends, I will tell you my experiences of friendship. My first friend and my best friend in my class is Anika. Now with her help , everyone has become my friend. Today I will tell you about Anika and my experience. We became friends online via our laptops. One day at 7o'clock we planned to meet on google, then I said – "Anika, today I want to play something new. My mother made a game of money. Let's play that." Then Anika said, "Ok, Advita, let's play your game." We started playing this game. Do you know how we play this game? I took a paper, then I became a shopkeeper, Anika became a customer, and we exchanged money. We learn new things with each other by exchanging our ideas and thoughts. We talk to each other, and we like each other's company. I am happy that I have a friend like Anika.  Now I will share a poem with you:  T he beginning of a beautiful friendship One day while I was playing, a knock came on the door.  I saw a little girl peeping f

Making Others Happy - Simar Kaur

The beauty of life does not depend on how happy you are but how happy others can be because of you. Every time we make someone happy, an indescribable feeling enters our body. It makes your day better, and at night you can go to sleep feeling better about yourself. Life is meaningless without compassion, love, empathy, and sympathy. It seems to be even more pointless if one is not happy. It is human nature to discover more and more ways to be more comfortable and more content with life. Many people find contentment and satisfaction by making others happy, and it works like a charm. The quest for happiness is not proportional to the pursuit of money, fame, or success. It's a quest present in the heart. If we follow our hearts, we will be happy with ourselves at the end of the day. How can we be happy? There isn't one definite answer to that question. But there is a way, that is to make others happy. In his book 'Is your child ready to face the world', Dr Anupam Sibal nam
