It's Never Too Late - Rishona Chopra

Based on the chapter It’s never too late, from Is Your Child Ready to face the world by Dr Anupam Sibal. We often come in situations where we tend to make a wrong decision or even have the right intentions for something, but we use it in the wrong way. Sometimes we come across situations where we do the right thing, but others seem to get it in the wrong way or assume us wrong when what we do is the right thing. Take the example of Alfred Nobel, a famous scientist. Alfred Nobel made many inventions, one of them being dynamite. He made it for people’s safety and mining purposes of mining but little did he know that people were going to use it for wars. People saw him as an enemy and a person who would kill people for money. This had an effect on Nobel. Despite being disheartened, he brought courage in himself and thought that it was never too late to set things right. He made the invention of Nobel Prizes, which helped people see him for his good acts.   Rishona Chopra Grade V -A  Gyans

It's Never Too Late- Aanya Kumar

In the reading session on 28/11/2021, I realized that we decide whether to use a thing constructively or inappropriately. Alfred Nobel was thoroughly interested in the study of nitroglycerine. His intention of making dynamite was for noble reasons to help in mining and railroad purposes. However, others used it for war and other destructive purposes; he should not be the one to be blamed. When Alfred’s brother’s death was mistakenly reported as his, it was reported in the newspaper as, “The merchant of death is dead.” I strongly disagree with the statement. He also introduced the prestigious Nobel Prizes. People are considered lucky and privileged to receive these awards.  He redeemed himself by the same.  In the past, he was remembered for destruction and war. Presently he is recognized for the Nobel Prizes and his valuable contributions.  Name- Aanya Kumar Grade- V School- Gyanshree School
