From the Editor's Pen
First of all I welcome all the students and staff members of AMI Shishu Mandir to the new Academic session 2017-18.
This is a new beginning, a new session for all of us. So stop worrying about the past and look towards the future. A new goal is waiting for us to achieve. So get up and get set go……..
Further, we also need to be aware of our surroundings. Everything happening around us affects us or our families in one or the other way. Be it the introduction of GST or the Prime Minister’s visit to Israel or President Trump coming and meeting the Indian PM in the UN meeting. Though sometimes we do not care to know anything in this regard but we as future generation of India need to be aware of these things. Further, it increases our knowledge and Logical Power, which is going to help in our future. Only getting good marks is not enough.
I request and hope that you will pay heed to it and will be a little more LOGICAL.

GST: Goods & Service Tax
GST – A CRITICAL ANALYSIS
Finally after a long time of 14 years, GST has been implemented in India. India has become World’s 161st country to implement GST. It shows that it is very good for development of nation. But there are some complications as well. Though, we were planning to make GST a one way road but we made it a 4 line highway. As there are 4 tax states 5%, 12%, 18% and 28%. This 4 tier system has made GST much more complicated. Due to application of GST many questions arise.
What is GST? How does it work :-
GST is one indirect tax for whole nation which will make India one unified common market. GST is a single tax on the supply of goods & services right from manufacturer to the consumer.
How would GST be administered in India:-
Keeping in mind the federal structure of India, there will be two components of GST. Central GST (CGST) and state GST (SGST). Both state & centre will simultaneously levy GST across the value chain. States were the main reason of delay of GST in India as because of GST the revenue of state will decrease to a level & revenue of centre will increase. After 122nd amandmemy, meeting was held between centre & state. Tamilnadu never participated in any scheme. How would inter state transactions of goods and service be taxed under GST. In case of inter state transactions the centre would levy & collect the Integrated Goods & Services Tax (IGST) on all inter state supplies. The IGST would roughly be equal to CGST plus SGST. The IGST mechanism has been designed to ensure seamless flow of input tax credit from one state state to another. The exporting state will transfer IGST to state while the improper state will transfer it to its own state.
How will imports be taxed in GST? :-
The additional duty of excise & special additional duty presently being levied on imports will be subsumed under GST. IGST will be levied on all imports into the territory of India.
Taxes at the centre & state level are being subsumed into GST :-
At the centraL level central excise duty in addition to excise duty, service tax, special additional duty of customers. At state level VAT, sales tax, entertainment tax, octroi tax, wxory tax.
Why GST bill delay :-
As we know the idea of GST first came in 1991 during Narsimha Rao government by the then finance minister Dr. Manmohan Singh but at that time it was incomplete. We were on initial stage of LPG (Liberalization, Pritisation, Globalization). Then in 2003 Kelkar task forum had suggested GST bill. In 2006 it was first mooted in the budget speech. All opposition parties like NDA, AIDMK, JDU opposed it. They said that this is against the interest of nation. A proper GST bill firstly came in April 2011 in Loksabha as 115 constitutional amendment but it got lapsed with the dissolution of 15th Loksabha. Then the NDA government passed the GST in Loksabha & Rajyasabha which they were opposing during UPA government. First time in history closing speech has been given by Dr. Manmohan Singh on GST ( as it should be given by Mr. Narendra Modi).
Why GST implemented on 1st July :-
GST came in force on 1st July. Why it is so? It could come in force on 1st April 2017 or next April of 2018. This is a question that arises in any one’s mind. The reason why GST implemented on 1st July, is because in India taxation year starts from 1st July to 30 June.
Why Alcohol, Petrol & Diesel are excepted in GST :-
GST is like a Government has…………….. blanket on it. Government has exempted Alcohol, Petrol & Diesel from GST. If they really want to do development for middle class & poor people then they have to implement GST on Petrol & Diesel price as State Government take 48 Rs tax on 1 ltr. Petrol of cost 74 rs 1 ltr. GST is a depiction or a mirage in a desert.ies
28% Tax Slab :-
One of the most controversial tax slab. Among the 161 countriesi who implemented GST. France has highest GST of 18%. But the NDA government has implemented 28% tax in which tractor’s spear part are also included.

Kargil Vijay Diwas
Some facts about kargil war
Date:- may - july 1999
Location – kargil district – jammu and Kashmir
Kargil war was fought between India and Pakistan in 1999, immediately after the cross border Delhi Lahore bus service was started. All international diplomats were surprised as it was thought that there is peace between two nations when the PM of Pakistan visited India for the Delhi Lahore bus service. But , immediately after, both countries were standing on the brink of nuclear war. Kargil was not merely a conflict of ideologies or loss of human life but it also brought out the inhuman face of the war.
It all started when some treacherous activities were spotted by our soldiers on the NH1 highway that connects Srinagar to Leh. Pakistan took the issue to the UN to gain control over Kashmir but all in vain due to resistance from India. So it was a complete failure of Pakistan foreign policy and a great victory for India.
For three months the fight continued . Pakistan Army was benefitted in the war as they were at a height . they destroyed the NH1 A in the initial days of the war so as to block the supply of ration and ammunition for the Indian army. Other than the height there were other physical problems in front of the Indian Army like avalanches, 18 m steep slopes, Shyok River in the eastern part etc. But a great salute to our soldiers who were unstoppable till they got hold of the Tiger Hill. The Indian army chief at that time was Ved Prakash Mallik. He controlled the situation very effectively and a huge army was deployed at the kargil front against the Pakistan army.
On 26th July, Indian army announced complete eviction of Pakistani intruders from the Indian side of LOC. And since then this day is celebrated in India as Vijay Divas.
Poem on Maa
माॅ नमन उस परम पिता को जिसने मुझे यह जग दिखलाया।
उस माॅ की हूॅ परम पुजारिन जिसने मुझे कोख में लाया।।
दुःख-दर्द-कष्ट सह सहकर खुषी-खुषी था गर्भ सॅभाला।।
नियत घडी षुभ पल में उसने मुझको इस दुनिया में लाया।।
माॅ तू वात्सल्यमयी तू ही है ममता की मूरत,
तुझसे बढकर और अलग क्या होगी किसी की भी सूरत।
अतुलनीय माॅ त्याग तुम्हारा समान स्नेह सब बच्चों पर,
खान पान का ध्यान भी रखती स्वयं कभी भूखी रहकर।।
माॅ तू करूणा की अविरल धारा तुझमें समाया दयासागर,
हम बच्चे माॅ प्रमुदित होते तुम्हारा यही स्नेह पाकर।
माॅ तूने चलना सिखालाया सुलाया मीठी लोरी गाकर,
सदा सत्य का पाठ सिखाया जीवन्त उद्धरण दिखलाकर।।
माॅ तू देख सफलता मेरी हो जाती कितनी उत्सुक,
आॅेसू झलक पढते नेत्रों से हो जाती इतनी भावुक।
माॅ तू बच्चों की खुषी में पाती सदा ही अपना सुख,
होती पूर्ण समर्पित हम पर भूलकर सभी स्वयं के दुःख।।
माॅ तू प्रेरणा की स्त्रोत है इस जग में सर्वषक्तिमान,
तेरा आश्रय पाकर ही माॅ हो सकता मेरा कल्याण।
अब माॅ मेरी बारी है कि रखूॅ सदा मैं तेरा ध्यान,
मन न कभी विचलित हो मेरा तुझ पर करू सदा अभिमान।।
माॅ तेरी सेवा में तत्पर रहे सदा रहे सदा ये मेरा तन,
सत्य प्रेम ईमान दया के भावों से भरा हो मन।
पाया है माॅ जो मैंने वो सब तेरा है आर्षीवाद
वरद हस्त हो माॅ मुझ पर ये करू सदा तुझसे फरियाद।।

Value of Discipline
The great greek philosopher Aristotle rightly remarked that discipline in obedience to rules formed by society for good of all. Discipline is therefore the habit of acting according to rules. It is the base of the whole universe. It is the training of mind and character. It starts from home. It is necessary in every walk (field) of life from playground to school & collage, from army to administration. The program of society depends on it. It is the source of advancement of civilization and culture. Loss of discipline will create a chaos in the society. It is the foundation of human welfare peace, program and prosperity. It is the guide and guardian of our life. It is said that wise man preach discipline, great men follow it while fools defy it.
“ Discipline is the refining fire by which talent becomes ability.”
“ Some people regard discipline as chore for me. It is a kind of order that sets me free to fly.”
