Solace in Books - Ishika Shrivastava

"Books" are that one constant companion throughout the whole life and "Reading" is that one habit which brings joyous colours to your life. 

People who understand the art of reading will always find peace in it because books aren't only for reading but can also act as a safe place for many people. 

The enhancement of vocabulary and good communication skills are some of the important skills that one can have which is actually a necessity in the real world, they can also make your point of view even larger and you get to understand people and your surroundings more properly and in an adequate manner. 

With clarity in mind and diverging eyes to the sites,
there you are with a gift of seeking out the beauty in the darkest of times 
with all the prowess in your hands,
embrace the shower of familiarity that has been long forgotten.

Here I am, resting my words by resonating that reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary

Reflections for 2023 - Tenzin Jambey

The Sunday School Session on the 31st of December by My Good School was an exciting session for students and teachers as they spent time reading, reflecting, and looking back on how their relationships deepened in 2023. They focused on improving their reading, writing, and speaking skills. Tenzin Jambey, a dedicated student who attended every Sunday School session in 2023, is eager to share how it has transformed his life, what he has learned, and his plans for the future. Be sure to tune in and listen.

Tenzin Chonzom pours out her heart for My Good School!

Good evening, sir; this is Tenzin Chonzom ✨

We did a lot for today's class, but what reflected in my mind was that happiness is the result and not a cause.

I want to write a short note on this because of a discussion we had in class. 

It depends on external things. Its result, which comes from within due to our kind works, gives happiness. 

* Life of Crescendo (reflection)

. Life is a mission, not a career

. It tells About what keeps people growing

. We learned about the six paths

       : happiness is the result, not the cause 

       : stress is not bad

       : Physical exercise is essential and good 

. If you enjoy

        : Cash doesn't last

        : Stay involved in work

        : Maintenance of a robust social network

. Anyone who keeps learning stays young 🌱

. Staying focused

. It's all recognition of the abundance of facts. 

*Creating Passion 

Passions are developed through emotions, mainly through activities that you find to be fun.

As mentioned by Amerdeep sir in a previous session, he remarked, "DON'T FOLLOW PASSION. CREATE YOUR OWN PASSION." he has motivated me through all aspects of problems with his meeting in the session.


* Leaving 2023 and moving to 2024 ( learning I did from My Good School in this passing year )

 . Breaking goals into smaller steps makes them more accessible for students to comprehend. As mentioned by Amerdeep, sir.

My Good School always taught me never to stop dreaming and to keep learning and improving my reading, writing, and listening skills.

A good school encourages the young minds of students and is filled with positive thoughts.

Thank you, sir.

My visit to - Tenzin Jambey

After visiting the website, I found that the focus on the development of the thinking abilities of the students is the priority of My Good School, and it also focuses on the improvement of reading, writing and speaking skills of children. 

My Good School gives us a platform for sound learning, and its teaching is among the top schools. Instead, it teaches many life lessons and excellent morals, which would be helpful to till our last breath. 

On the website there is a picture of a book named My Good School which is a great book written by Sandeep Sir the book tells about the ways of making a good school better, a place where everyone can enjoy the teachings and learning. 

I think My Good School is teaching us many many lessons and gives messages that would prove productive in our future.

हमारी हरी घास की छप्पर वाली झोपड़ी और बौना पहाड़ की यात्रा। - Hindi Podcast

Listen to one of our best podcasts for 2022 #JoyOfLearning

हमारी हरी घास की छप्पर वाली झोपड़ी और बौना पहाड़ की यात्रा।

Vani: "ॐ नमः शिवाय गुरुवे सच्चिदानन्द मुर्तये निस्प्रपञ्चाय शान्ताय निरालम्बया तेजसे"।

अर्थ - गुरु सभी का आत्म है, सत्य, ज्ञान और आनंद का अवतार है। जो संसार से परे, शान्त, स्वतंत्र और दीप्तिमान हैं, उन्हें नमस्कार है।

Yashraj : माय गुड स्कूल में एक साल वास्तव में तेजी से बीत गया है जो हमारे हिंदी सत्र का भी अंत करता है। इस सत्र का हिस्सा बनकर हमें बहुत खुशी हुई, इसलिए मैं यशराज।

Vani: और मैं वाणी ।

Yashraj:  हिंदी के सत्रों की यात्रा के बारे में इस पॉडकास्ट की मेजबानी करने के लिए यहां हैं। लेकिन, क्या आपको नहीं लगता कि इस पॉडकास्ट को और अधिक रोचक बनाने के लिए हमें अपने कुछ और जॉली इंटर्न की आवश्यकता होगी?

Vani: सच में, इसलिए मैं अपने दोस्तों और इंटर्न- रिशोना, शांभवी, आरफा,और संदीप सर को आमंत्रित करती हूं।

Yashraj: रिशोना, शांभवी और आरफा, कृपया हमारे साथ हिंदी सत्र के अपने विचार और अनुभव साझा करें।

Rishona: हां, मैं इस बात से पूरी तरह सहमत हूं कि हमारी हरी घास की छप्पर वाली झोपड़ी और बौना पहाड़ की यात्रा वास्तव में कुछ और थी! तोत्तो-चान और स्वामी से अंग्रेजी सत्र में, मैंने बहुत कुछ सीखा है, मुझे लगता है कि बोलू, स्वामी और तोत्तो-चान सबसे अच्छे दोस्त हैं। यह इत्तेफाक ही है कि हम तीनों दोस्तों की कहानियां पढ़ते हैं। जैसा कि हम अध्याय या बल्कि रोमांच से गुजरे तो यह बहुत ताज़ा महसूस हुआ।

Shambhavi: इस सत्र में हरी घास की चप्पल वाली झोपड़ी और बौना पहाड़ जैसी अदभुत किताब पढ़ना, असल में एक बहुत नए अनुभव के जैसा था जिसने हमे एक नया नज़रिया दीया। इस किताब ने हमें एक और बहुत ही अच्छे दोस्तों के समाहार से परिचित करवाया।

Arfa: हमारी हरी घास की छप्पर वाली झोपड़ी और बौना पहाढ़ को पड़ने में अलग ही मज़ा था।कल्पना की इस बनावट में एक ताज़गी और नयापन है।उपन्यास में बच्चों के सपनों की दुनिया जैसी खूबसूरत चीजें हैं। भाषा की चमक के साथ-साथ भाषा का संगीत भी कहानी को आकर्षक बनाता है। भाषा की आन्तरिक रचना आख्यान के साथ-साथ वर्तमान के बोध को सजीव करती है।

Vani: धन्यवाद रिशोना, शांभवी और आरफा ,आपसे यह सुनकर बहुत अच्छा लगा। अब में हमारे गुरूजी संदीप सर को दो शब्द कहने के लिए आमंत्रित करना चाहूंगा। Yashraj: हमेशा हमारे प्रेरणा स्त्रोत बनने के लिए और हमारा मनोबल ऊँचा  रखने के लिए धन्यवाद सर ! अब, हमारे लिए कुछ शब्द कहने के लिए जुगजीव सर को आमंत्रित करते हैं। वह एक अंग्रेजी शिक्षक हैं जिन्होंने उत्साहपूर्वक हिंदी सत्रों में भाग लिया है। मैं महोदय से अनुरोध करूंगा कि आप जिन कुछ यादगार हिंदी सत्रों में शामिल हुए हैं, उनके अपने अनुभव कृपया साझा करें।

Vani: आपकी ये बातें निश्चय ही सत्य हैं। तुम्हारे बारे में क्या, यशराज? एक सक्रिय हिंदी JOL इंटर्न होने के नाते और हर सत्र में भाग लेने का आपका सफर कैसा रहा?

Yashraj: मैंने अंग्रेजी की तो बहुत सी किताबें बचपन से पढ़ी हैं, लेकिन हिंदी की किताबों श को बहुत ज्यादा नहीं पढ़ा था। परंतु पिछले 1 साल में माय गुड स्कूल के माध्यम से मैंने हिंदी की कहानियां भी पढ़नी शुरू की, जिससे मेरी रुचि हिंदी की किताबों में भी बढ़ गई है। और साथ ही साथ मेरी हिंदी शब्दावली में भी सुधार हुआ है। अब मुझे हिंदी भी रोचक लगने लगी है।हमने जो यह उपन्यास हरे घास की छप्पर वाली झोपड़ी और बोना पहाड़ पढ़ा है,उससे मुझे बहुत से लोक भाषा के शब्दों का भी ज्ञान हुआ है। साथ ही साथ हमने समय-समय पर उपन्यास पर आधारित प्रश्नावली आयोजित की जिससे हमारा हिंदी पठन और रोचक और ज्ञानवर्धक हुआ।आपका क्या कहना है वाणी?

Vani: हिंदी सत्रों का हिस्सा बनना मेरे लिए हमेशा बहुत खुशी की बात रही है। और इस अद्भुत किताब को पढ़ना - हरे गैस की छप्पर वाली झोपड़ी और बोना पहाड़, निश्चित रूप से मुझे अपने बचपन में वापस ले जाता है और मेरी प्यारी यादों से जुड़ता है। जब मैं किताब के पन्ने पढ़ती थी तो अपने आप एक किरदार में बदल जाती था। मेरी पसंदीदा कूना थी- एक प्यारी लेकिन मजबूत छोटी लड़की।हिंदी सत्र ने अन्यथा मेरे हिंदी पढ़ने के कौशल और हिंदी में मेरी रुचि में भी सुधार किया है। Yashraj: इसके साथ ही हम अपने पॉडकास्ट के अंत में आ गए हैं। नीचे कमेंट करें और हमें बताएं कि क्या आपको हमारा पॉडकास्ट पसंद आया। आज हमारे तरफ से बस इतना ही। ट्यूनिंग के लिए धन्यवाद।

Enjoy our shows on

The Subtle Art Of Writing 📜 - Oshi Singh

-The Bewitching View Of My Wonderland-

Hey, I am Oshi Singh from Gyanshree. I am also an intern at the Joy Of Learning Program. Some of you might know me because of my posts on the joy of learning diaries. I am writing this article to pay tribute to My Good School for helping me find the missing 'ME' time in my life. The Sunday School has also helped me immensely, especially as a writer.

Finding time to read every week and learning how to be a better person, the weekly conversations always help me a lot. Also, reading other people's life experiences and getting the best out of them is a new skill that I developed here at My Good School.

The teachers and interns here have become like family to me. It has made me believe that this is where passion meets education.

I am thankful to everyone here who is helping me develop into a better human being and giving me excellent life opportunities. I look forward to getting to know the people better and collaborating with them. Also, after reading this, I hope some of you would like to join our family and make it grow bigger and wiser!

People have been writing as far as mankind can recollect; we have come a long way, from random ancient letters to a modern stable form of Writing. Writing, for me, holds an extraordinary place in my heart. While writing, I find a special feeling that is a little difficult to express, but if I try, it is something like peace. It is hard to find but harder to get rid of when discovered. When I write, I feel the greatest. I feel like Alice in Wonderland or Harry Potter at Hogwarts. Nothing compares to the feeling you get when you simply write while sitting on your balcony at the height of your society's building. Watching every single bird, car and plane pass while you write. Watching everyone look so tiny except for yourself, who is busy roaming and enjoying their fantasy world. It is the closest I can get to nature while living in cities. 

Writing for some is a doodle, while it is a tough row to hoe for some. The biggest misconception about Writing is that it's limited to schools and colleges, but I differ. I believe it is about an expression of thoughts. Writing is telling your tale and unravelling your thoughts on the blank page. It is about capturing your past and living your present. It is about making memories. 

Writing a journal is an excellent start to mastering this art. While writing in your journal, you don't need to care about spelling and grammar or its presentation. All you have to do is write; that's how I started, and You can too! The more and more you write, the better you get at the language and, more importantly, being able to clearly convey who you are and what's on your mind. People may or may not like it, but you will become more comfortable and confident about yourself. Reading books is also a great way to start writing! 

Sunday School is a live example. While we read stories of the greatest writers in history here every Sunday. We, too, write the most exciting and intriguing reflections and stories by aspiring writers. Later we post it on the Joy Of Learning Diaries, making it available for a lifetime and tracing a mark of our start. 

Finally, I hope you got my point, as Writing is more than making meaningful sentences. So why don't you give it a shot right now? After all, you're never too late to miss the train, and even if you do, take a deep breath & relax. There's another one coming your way, and you are on time for YOUR train!

What have I learnt from My Good School - Shambhavi Nautiyal

What have I learnt from my one year at My Good School?

There are a colossal of amazing things that I have learnt from my one year at My Good School. I read three meaningful and impactful books and got to know three very new authors that helped to make my year a little more bedazzling.

Reading is all about simplicity and beauty, which I was able to experience regularly throughout this year. Though I couldn't reflect much in the written form, as far as I can tell, I did have the chance to go through the whole discussion and analysis in the meetings. I enjoyed expanding my knowledge of articulation and vocabulary and viewing the world through different perspectives. I made new friends and got to know their stories and opinions.

The first book that we read, Dr Anupam Sibal's "Is Your Child Ready to face the world?', was a book that made me dive into the observations and life lessons manifested through the life of the author. I believe it gave me a view of the world I will be stepping into soon. That book made me discern what those virtues meant to me and how I would want to when I grow. Even today, if someone ever asks me about some helpful self-help book recommendations, then I would only ask for that person to give this book a read.

The second book 'Totto-chan, the girl by the window' was written by a Japanese author, Tetsuko Kuroyanagi, a country I admire. This book gave me a view of how childhood is for a Japanese kid, fascinating and adventurous what I was able to make out. The whole book was heartwarming, and it felt like travelling back in time to a different country like I was there. Especially reading these books with all of the My Good School members was fun. It was simply marvellous knowing so many new things every week. I am proud and content with the idea of me being a part of this home-like friendly open programme which is just free of judgements.

It's indeed been a roller-coaster ride, somehow. Apart from everything, there is one thing I can say for sure that one-hour meeting felt like a safe place for other children like me who were interested in the beauty of literature and admired it and lived the stories just the way I did. Now that I think of it, I can't express how much gratitude I feel for being able to be a part of this; looking back at it as a journey of improvisation and learning,

I don't know if I would even be writing anything if it weren't for My Good School. I would have probably thought for it to be something I couldn't do and just wasn't for me, but because of this practice of reflecting, I have enriched and improved that now I can do it anytime, whenever I think of it. It's been a healing experience, and of course, I want to thank the organisers, Sandeep sir, Monisha ma'am, all the interns who have put so much effort into making this a success and the other members who joined, which always made the meeting come up alive.

Quality - Rishona Chopra

"If a judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid."
- Albert Einstein 

We all have a beautiful quality about us. Something that makes us happy and makes us feel alive. There may be 1 bad thing about us, but there are 10 good things about us too. We all have a quality that we can never get tired of. Writing makes me feel alive, and I believe it is my quality that refreshes my mind. 

Today let us close our eyes and think, what do we wish to do that we could do all day? Reading, writing, playing an instrument, drawing, painting, or even doing nothing is a quality. I have noticed that most people can't stay still and want to do something, even if I can't. So if you can stay still doing nothing for even 15 minutes. I say that's beautiful quality!

Take out a day to do whatever you want without any hesitation!

Apart from these hobbies, it is essential to have God's seven qualities in us:
Wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth.

Begin Your Day With A Close Meeting With God - During the early morning hours, when nature is silent and pure and human beings are quiet and detached from their physical existence, experience yourself as a soul and enter the soul world and float in it, touching and absorbing the pure vibrations of God. These vibrations will fill you with God's 7 qualities.

Where Passion Meets Education

The Joy of Learning Diaries is a website where students can post their reflections on My Good School’s reading program every Sunday. They can literally post anything they want. We publish the Joy Of Learning Diaries, and our blogs go in an extensive diary where many students can post.

We connect the Joy Of Reading with the joy of writing by -

  • What we read in the reading session we reflect upon by writing.
  • What we have written can be converted into a podcast (audio file) - Joy of Speaking.
That is how My Good School connects the three joys.

We are here at My Good School, Here things are so cool! Together we learn, Here no teacher is stern!

We learn all the values needed,
After going to My Good School, we all succeeded!
There are several things you can do,
Each item is new!
