Dear Dr.A.P.J. ABDUL KALAM.

Standard

Dear Dr.A.P.J. Abdul Kalam,

I was devastated on hearing the news of your death, it was so unexpected but then I realized you are not dead,you shall never be because you live in our hearts.

Your thoughts, your deeds, your works, your contributions will never be forgotten, they make you eternal.

You inspired so many, you have no clue.

You were and always will be one of the most loved President of India.

Your books changed so many lives and gave hope too.

Even in your death you taught us to live till the very end, and die doing what we love the most. You taught us that life is mortal but deeds are not.

You the MISSILE MAN gave so much to the country, to the world but most importantly to humanity.

You were a man, a man with hopes, a man with dreams,  a man who had seen everything in life. You saw everyone equally, no big no small. You were a great great leader and an amazing writer. But apart from that an amazing human being.

You taught us that only hard work pays off, you taught us to stay grounded, but most importantly about life.

Sir, all we want to tell you is that we love you and always will and to thank you for your service to the country and now its our turn to follow your footsteps and fulfill our responsibility towards the country.

Yours Affectionately,

Amisha Verma.

REST IN PEACE SIR.

“Let not thy winged days be spent in vain. When once gone no gold can buy them back again.”

5 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND AN INDIAN WEDDING…

Standard

I just came back from a big fat Indian wedding. So I came up with 5 reasons why you should attend an Indian wedding once in your life time. So here they are-

  1. An Indian wedding is very colourful. From the dresses to the decorations, everything. The bride wears a red or green lehenga (an Indian outfit) being the showstopper of the day. Every colour you can imagine of can be seen. So basically its a very colourful occasion.
  2. The FOOD!! Every Indian would agree with me on this point. One should attend an indian wedding just for the food. There is so much of variety, one is just not able to decide what to eat and what not to.
  3. There are many functions in an Indian wedding. There are about 6-7 different functions like engagement, teelak, etc.. So yeah it is very traditional and entertaining. One should attend all of the functions to get the Indian essence of it.
  4.  To get an idea for your own wedding, if you want a wedding of such type. Many Hollywood celebrities have tied the knot in a grand Indian wedding!
  5. Moreover its a one of a kind experience!

THANK YOU! ❤

ON SACHIN TENDULKAR’S RETIREMENT :'(

Video

It was a very sad moment for INDIA when Sachin Tendulkar decided to retire even more on the day he did. On 16th November 2013, all the cricket fans were glued to the television to watch the cricketer who had won a million hearts, for the last time. Tendulkar was just 16 when he became India’s youngest Test cricketer. In 2007 Tendulkar reached another major milestone, becoming the first player to record 15,000 runs in one-day international play. He has been a legend and will remain one!

EDUCATION SYSTEM SHOULD CHANGE!

Standard

I strongly believe the education system should change. The current system consists of many unit tests and annual examinations which only enhances the memorizing skills and not the analytical skills. According to me a chapter should be taught and the child should be given an investigatory project on it. Like currently we test the theory part of the child per chapter but this would enable us to test how much the child has understood. I am not saying that the test and examination should be ignored completely I am only saying that there should not be unit tests but projects per chapter and one annual exam. In todays world research is very important and through this method of teaching a child would start questioning, exploring and would see things through his own prospective but through the current form of teaching he is seeing the world from the scientists’ point of view and doesn’t apply his own brain. The great scientists such as Sir Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Galileo Galilei, etc. saw the world differently and gave the world so much of knowledge. This is what we need, we need the children to see the world though their own point of view as each child is different and unique!!

Thank You!

THE SIGNIFICANT DIYA

Image

A diya or an earthen lamp is synonymous to the festival of Deepavali or Diwali. But it is not just a mere earthen lamp it is much more.
The Diya symbolises knowledge. An ignorant person would often remain in dark and wouldn’t be able to keep a check on the events happening around him. It is only when he feels the need to gain some knowledge that he will realise the purpose of his existence. And hence in this case, a diya/jyot signifies the removal of ignorance through knowledge.
The oil in the diya represents the dirt (greed, jealousy, hatred, lust etc) that humans tend to nurture while the cotton wick is symbolic of the aatman (soul). So in order to attain enlightenment and unite with the Brahman (the supreme power), one must get rid of materialism. A diya emits light when the wick fuelled by oil burns.

Sir C.V Raman

Standard

Being Sir C.V RAMAN’S birthday I thought why not write a short note about him.

He was an Indian physicist whose works were a benchmark in the Indian Science Field.

He was the recipient of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1930 for the discovery that when light traverses a transparent material, some of the deflected light changes in wavelength. This phenomenon is now called Raman scattering and is the result of the Raman effect.

India celebrates NATIONAL SCIENCE DAY on 28 February of every year to commemorate the discovery of the Raman effect in 1928.

He is one of the personalities who made his country proud.

I hope to see many more Sir C.V. RAMANs in the future who make the country and their parents proud!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIR!! 🙂

THANK YOU!!

CHOOSE YOUR STREAM WISELY…

Standard

At a very young age the students have to choose their subjects or stream. Choosing subjects is comparatively easy , you just have to choose the subjects which pleases  you but choosing streams is tough.

In India, as we are all aware that we are given 3 stream choices in 11th grade i.e. science, commerce and humanities. These are some points you should keep in mind when you choose your stream-

  1. NEVER COME UNDER ANY SORT OF PRESSURE either it be pressure from parents, peers or society.
  2. You should analyse you strengths, weaknesses and interests. Some people may be aware about the CCE pattern in 10th grade, students now have more time which can be utilised to surf the net for career options and upcoming industries.
  3. You can ask for advice from your elders.
  4. TALK to people of different professions. During this process you get to know about their experiences and what would be asked from you.
  5. Consult a career councillor if you just don’t know what to do.

After you have decided in which field you want to go into, choose the subject accordingly.

Make sure you make a decision you would regret in future, just telling from my personal experience.

THANK YOU!!

PSLV-C-25!!

Standard

PSLV-C-25 is India’s first interplanetary probe, the Mars orbital spacecraft was launched today i.e. on 5th November 2013 at 1436 hours at IST. It was launched from Satish Dawan space centre at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh, near Chennai by ISRO (INDIAN SPACE RESEARCH ORGANISATION).

The scientific objectives of the mission inlcude exploration of Mars surface features, morphology, mineralogy and Martian atmosphere by indigenous scientific instruments but for me as a citizen it meant to see my country develop. I was glued to the TV screen and actually praying that this mission is successful as it will make India one of the few space powers to have explored the Red Planet after Russia, the United States and Europe.

When I saw it launching on the TV I was so exited and tensed and was just thinking what the scientists would be feeling who had worked day and night for 15 months to make this mission a success. 15 months for a mission of this scale is very very less! I am extremely proud right now and am not able to express my happiness. It is a gift to the nation.

This is just the start and we have a long way to go and I  am sure we are going to  make it and with this speed it won’t take a lot of time!

The sight was so beautiful, like a young white bird flying, making her mother proud!!

DIWALI : The Festival of Lights

Standard

Diwali is the festival of lights. It was the day when lord Ram came back to Ayodhya after many years. It signifies the victory of good over evil. The lights signify the internal purity of AATMA i.e. the purity of the soul. Hindus all around the world celebrate it with enthusiasm. Diyas i.e. candles are lighted, rangoli is made, crackers are burst and sweets are gifted to family and friends. People decorate their house by flowers and lights. It is a really beautiful sight. I must say it is the best time to visit India. Goddess LAXMI (goddess of wealth) & lord GANESH (god of auspicious beginnings ) are worshipped for a prosperous and safe year ahead. So a very HAPPY DIWALI!!

THANK YOU! ❤
