Reflection on what makes you feel who you are - Shristi Khulal

Even though I am not exceptionally talented, the support, love, help and care I receive daily from people around me makes me feel who I am. 

The knowledge, education, encouragement and motivation I get from those who help me endlessly in my life are my parents, teachers, friends and Pestalozzi; all have helped me become a better person. 

The challenges and even problems that came into my life made me stronger and braver. 

Thus, these are the things that make me who I am.

Annual Day at School - Arav Agarwal

After reading the chapter The Annual Day At School from the book My Good School: Where Passion Meets Education by Sandeep Dutt, I just flashback, remembering my annual days and the joy and happiness everyone used to get after participating in the Annual Day. 

We all love annual days, and so do I. We, as children, wait eagerly for such fun-filled events. We have skits, voiceover, dance, music band, and speeches on our yearly days. Also, the students get the opportunity and have fun organizing and planning the annual day along with the teachers. 

I still have memories of my Annual Day when I was in Senior KG. I was given the role of Narendra Modi and was to give a speech of Narendra Modi, and the theme was women empowerment. I still remember that parents were clapping in between the lecture. I also remember that after the Annual Day, when I went to School, a few children and parents used to ask me that are you, Narendra Modi. Also, a few parents asked my mother if, are you Narendra Modi’s mother. So, this was my memorable experience of my Annual Day.

We used to have a theme each year for our annual day. I am also missing my Annual Day for two years. As mentioned in the book, Annual days help us identify our skills and strengths, and I was able to identify my skills and strengths through my annual days. Also, it is mentioned in the book that students should get the rightful opportunity to showcase their creativity and talent, which everyone does beautifully on our School’s annual days. 

Annual Days were so much fun for my friends and me, and we used to enjoy them a lot.

Happiness and Me - Susan Marandi

 "All these kids are icebergs; we only see the tip." -a character in the show Castle.

We all are like icebergs; people only see some qualities and a part of us. But how many of us know our real us, our real side? Very few or none of us know 100% of ourselves, but there is nothing wrong with that. If you don't know what you are passionate about, it's ok. If you don't know what your talent is, it's ok. You at least have to give it a try to show the real you to the world and, most importantly, to yourself. Because that is what gives happiness to you. And that's what really matters.😃

Something I wonder about. . . . .
What if life is a dream and death is the end of that dream. When you wake up, you realize it was all a dream, and you have another chance to live and correct the mistakes you made in your dream. And have another chance to fulfil every dream of yours. It might be wonderful, right? But this won't happen in real life, so fulfil and achieve every dream of yours in this life and live every moment as if it's never gonna come back.
