From the Editor's Pen
Despite the Omicron threat looming large all over the country, this year the Republic Day parade showcased India’s cultural diversity, military might and noble initiatives and the Beating Retreat inspired admiration towards the country’s sovereignty as the massed bands of the military’s three wings - Army, Navy and Air Force presented soul-stirring music.
Beating the Retreat’ marks the last ceremony of the nation’s Republic Day celebrations, which started on January 23 this year, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled the hologram statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose at India Gate. The fascinating ceremony has always been a part of the Republic Day celebration for more than 70 years. This year, some new activities including a drone show and projection mapping were introduced at the ceremony. The novel drone was a 10-minute show, involving around 1,000 drones fabricated through indigenous technology, at the backdrop of synchronized music.
From this year the government has also dropped ‘Abide With Me’, the somber high point of the conclusion of the Republic Day celebrations. The hymn has been replaced by the popular patriotic song Aye Mere Watan Ke Logo ; which has touching lyrics that highlight the & quot;Unity in Diversity; aspect of the Indian soldiers and has a very mesmerizing and solemn impact.

HAPPY RREPUBLIC DAY
‘MY VISION FOR INDIA @ 100 YEARS’
RECIPE OF THE MONTH
It is the time of spring season once again and Corona or Omicron can’t deter us from enjoying the flood of colours and frangrances in our school garden!
‘ I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils;!!!!’
We have roses in plentiful!
Seasons are a very important element in our lives. They have an influence on what we wear, what we eat and what we do in our free time. They also affect the mood we are in.
Seasons affect many parts of daily life. Climate, weather and the change of the seasons affect much of what we do each day. … The change of seasons allows for many different types of work, food, celebrations and recreation. Plants and animals also change their ways with the seasons
In ancient civilizations people observed that the sun was at different places during different times of the year. Seasons are caused because of the Earth’s changing relationship to the Sun. The Earth travels around the Sun, called an orbit, once a year or every 365 days. As the Earth orbits the Sun, the amount of sunlight each location on the planet gets every day changes slightly. This change causes the seasons.
Learning about the seasons helps children understand the passage of time and teaches them about change.
Nothing is as permanent as change.
Best of luck everyone for your exams ahead. Prepare well and enjoy the fruits of hard work.

Stress is your response to pressure situations. It is a range of symptoms, a range of emotions and thoughts that any student experiences when exams are approaching.
