Every month besides the second month in the calendar contains at least 30 days. Only February falls short in number of days. It has either 28 or 29(in a leap year) days. Students , have you ever wondered why all the months of the year don’t have the same number of days? Well, for this you’ll have to dig deep into the history of our modern calendar which is known as the Gregorian calendar. The Gregorian calendar was a modification of the Julian calendar, which itself was a modification of the ancient Roman calendar.
The scientific reason behind this is that one orbit of Earth around the Sun takes approximately 365.25days. It is a little more than our Gregorian calendar’s round number of 365 days. Because the calendar does not account for the extra quarter of a day that the Earth requires to complete its orbit around the Sun, it doesn’t completely align with the solar year. Because of this .25 difference, our calendar gradually gets out of sync with the seasons. Adding an extra day to the calendar every 4 years brings the calendar in line and therefore realigns it with the seasons.Soan extra day is added nearly every four years to the calendar year.The extra day is called “a leap day” i.e. February 29 and the year with an extra day is called “a leap year”.
Without leap days, the calendar would be off by 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 45 seconds more each year.After 100 years, the seasons would be off by 25 days! Eventually, the months we call February and March would feel like summer months in the Northern Hemisphere.So the leap day adjusts this drift.
The winter has been harsh and rough but now the springtime is coming. Hopefully we would witness climate change in mid- Feb. Spring season is the time of growth and renewal. Sunlight and warmth increase our movement. We become more open to invite changes. The nature itself gives the signal. The trees begin to grow their leaves, the plants start to flower, young animals as chick and lamb are born. Springtime represents progress, new beginnings, blossoming of new thingsand new life.The season is a synonym for optimism. Spring and hope are oftenintertwined. It is the hope that makes spring the most positive season of the year.Spring is God’s way of saying ‘One more time!’. Its time to rejuvenate our dreams and start our plans in a new way with hope filled in our hearts.
Basant Panchami marks the beginning of the spring season in India. Every year on this occasion usually we have celebration followed by the lunch for our students at our school. We worship Ma Saraswati , the Goddess of knowledge ,music, learning and art.But this year it couldn’t be possible due to Corona. The school … the teachers are missing the children. But springtime teaches us to be optimistic. Just as the nature blooms with the arrival of spring season, in the same way we hope the school premises will turnalive once the children come.
Happy Basant Panchami & Happy Springtime !!

Women empowerment is an important thing that needs to be accomplished. The rights and freedoms that women have today are the results of the fights that the empowered women fought against it. The acts of these empowered women show that it is time that women, too, can enjoy all the freedoms and rights. India is a country that lacks women’s empowerment. The girls in India don’t get access to higher education. Instead, the girls are married off at a young age. Child marriage is prevalent in the country. The women can’t pursue a career of their own because they don’t have an education.
There are various ways in which women’s empowerment can happen in the country. One of the most significant ways is to educate women. The education that they receive can help them achieve their dreams and aspirations. They should be given equal opportunities at their work place in every field. Parents must teach their daughters that if they are in an abusive relationship, they should come home. Therefore, the women will feel like they have the support of their parents and can get out the domestic violence. Women should be free to pursue things they want to achieve and achieve all their goals and aspirations.

नवोल्लास वासंती छाया है,जब मधुवन में।
आत्मबोध जाग्रत हुआ तब मेरे अंतर्मन में।।
जिस तरह पुष्पों पर गुंजनकर छा जाते भौरें।
ये मधुकर मधुर ध्वनिमय निर्जन वन में घूम रहे हैं।
फिर वातावरण में अंबर से धरती तक, एक नया अलौकिक रूप संवर जाता है।
आमों की डाली का भी पीतांबर सा रूप निखर जाता है।
झिलमिल बिजली सी फूलों की डाली भर जाती है।
और विश्व के श्याम पटल पर बसंत ऋतु आ जाती है।
वाणी स्वरूप वरदायिनी वंदन करते हैं हम सब।
पीले पुष्प पीले वस्त्र पीला भोग लगाकर।।
बुद्धि पर देने वाली माता सरस्वती का बसंत पंचमी पर पूजन कर आशीर्वाद पाते हैं हम सब।
Everyone has a dream to achieve something in his or her life .Some people dream of becoming famous popular and rich and want to make the lives of others better by helping them.Dreams are essential .
It is only when you make your dream big with all your heart that you will be able to achieve it.
As a student our dream is to achieve good marks, have good friends, get support from the family and make it big in life.
Just like others, I also have a career dream. I aspire to become an IAS officer and wish to serve the nation. I have never been very good when it comes to current affairs and GK. But by studying hard; maybe someday, it will lead me to the right path. Serving the nation is the best job ever. From a very early age I wanted to do something for my country, wear the uniform, make my motherland proud.
