Recently we have celebrated 74th Founder’s day of our school and the 100th birth anniversary of our founder Lt. HH Rajmata Vijaya Raje Scindia. We admire her as a majestic queen, a compassionate and selfless mother, a social reformer , a prominent political personality and an epitome of love and sacrifice. By showing her life journey through the board display and power point presentation, the students paid true tribute to our founder.
In a couple of days, we are going to celebrate Diwali. Being one of the main festivals of our country, we celebrate it with great joy and enthusiasm. Lights, sweets , celebration, family and friends….these are the words that come to our mind when we think of Diwali. But people have made it a custom to burst crackers. During festive season the air pollution seemed to be spiked to uncontrollable levels.Bursting crackers release harmful gases like carbon monoxide into the surrounding that causes damage to the ozone layer and pollute the environment. We send tons of toxic smoke into the already polluted environment. We should be aware that if the pollution rate keeps on increasing at this rate , severe health problems will occur.So it is the need of the hour to celebrate a pollution free Diwali.
We should have to replace crackers with some non or less polluting alternatives. Recently the scientists of CSIR-NEERI have developed Green Fire Crackers which are environmental-friendly as they are not made with deadly chemicals. Green fire crackers can reduce the pollution by 30%.This will be an initiative for our conservation of mother earth.
Apart from this, we should use the earthen diyas instead of the electric lights. For making rangolis , use organic colours over the chemical ones. We can also make rangolis with the flowers and leaves. So, let’s pledge to celebrate a ‘green and clean diwali’ without causing any pollution.This year , let’s make a difference by celebrating Diwali in a ‘Go Green style'.
HAPPY DIWALI !!

On 26 November 1949, the Constituent Assembly of India adopted the Constitution of India, and it came into effect on 26 January 1950.

World Toilet Day________________________________________ CAN YOU IMAGINE!!!!!!!!!!
World Toilet Day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
19th November is world toilet day……….. sounds ludicrous………!!! But let us all
find out why…
DATE- 19th November
FIRST TIME- Unofficially 19th Nov 2001 & Officially 19th Nov 2012 as the UNDay
World Toilet Day (WTD) is an official United Nations international observance day on 19 November to inspire action to tackle the global sanitation crisis. Worldwide, 4.2 billion people live without "safely managed sanitation" and around 673 million people practice open defecation. Sustainable Development Goal 6 aims to achieve sanitation for all and end open defecation.
World Toilet Day exists to inform, engage and inspire people to take action toward achieving this goal.
World Toilet Day was established by the World Toilet Organization in 2001. Twelve years later, the UN General Assembly declared World Toilet Day an official UN day in 2012.
UN-Water is the official convener of World Toilet Day. UN-Water maintains the official World Toilet Day website and chooses a special theme for each year.
In 2019 the theme is 'Leaving no one behind', which is the central theme of the Sustainable Development Goals. Themes in previous years include nature-based solutions, wastewater, toilets and jobs, and toilets and nutrition. World Toilet Day is marked by communications campaigns and other activities. Events are planned by UN entities, international organizations, local civil society organizations and volunteers to raise awareness and inspire action.
Toilets are important because access to a safe functioning toilet has a positive impact on public health, human dignity, and personal safety, especially for women. Sanitation systems that do not safely treat excreta allow the spread of disease. Serious soil-transmitted diseases and waterborne diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, typhoid, dysentery and schistosomiasis can result.
On 19 November 2001, the World Toilet Organization (WTO) was founded by Jack Sim, a philanthropist from Singapore. He subsequently declared 19 November as World Toilet Day.
The WTO later the UN chose the name "World Toilet Day" and not "World Sanitation Day" for ease of public messaging. In fact, toilets are only the first stage of sanitation systems. World Toilet Day events and public awareness campaigns increase public awareness of the broader sanitation systems that include wastewater treatment, fecal sludge management, municipal solid waste management, stormwater management, hygiene, and handwashing. Also, the UN Sustainable Development Goals call for more than just toilets. Goal 6 calls for adequate sanitation, which includes the whole system for assuring that waste is safely processed.
The WTO began pushing for global recognition for World Toilet Day and, in 2007, the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) began to actively support World Toilet Day, too. Their efforts to raise attention for the sanitation crisis were bolstered in 2010 when the human right to water and sanitation was officially declared a human right by the UN.
In 2013, a joint initiative between the Government of Singapore and the World Toilet Organization led to Singapore's first UN resolution, named "Sanitation for All". The resolution calls for collective action to end the world's sanitation crisis. World Toilet Day was declared an official UN day in 2013. That resolution was adopted by 122 countries at the 67th session of the UN General Assembly in New York.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) replaced the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2016. On World Toilet Day on 19 November 2015, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged broad action to renew efforts to provide access to adequate sanitation for all. He reminded everyone of the "Call to Action on Sanitation" which was launched in 2013, and the aim to end open defecation by 2025. He also said: “By many accounts, sanitation is the most-missed target of the Millennium Development Goals."
The UN Deputy Secretary-General, Jan Eliasson, was honored on World Toilet Day in 2016 in New York for his deep commitment to breaking the sanitation taboo. For example, he had delivered a video message to attendees of a WaterAid and Unilever joint event in the European Parliament on World Toilet Day 2014. In 2016, UN-Water supported “A Toast for Toilets” in New York with the United Nations Mission of Singapore.
It’s Saturday and here I am again…..
After the throbbing , pulsating , vibrant, fun and frolic of 14 th November , the Children’s Day, Chacha Nehru’s birthday, here I am with the silence and quietness of my abode.
They tell me that EXAMS have started. SO WHAT ??? What’s the BIGDEAL ???
It’s just a self evaluation technique to ascertain what we have learnt and what have we missed…..
Anyways…. I am missing all the noise and play. Let me also contribute a little! Preparing for an exam can be stressful and time-consuming, but it doesn't have to be. There's no need to stress out or cram. By doing a couple of simple things ahead of time, you can ensure that you are confident and ready for anything that comes up on the test.
1Start studying early. Give yourself more than enough time to review the material that was covered in class. For instance, if you have to review material for an entire semester, you might want to start studying a few weeks prior. However, if you are just taking a test that covers material over a few chapters, a week prior or even three to four days may be sufficient.
Only you know how long it takes you to study, so you are the best judge of when to start studying.
If the class material is especially difficult for you, start studying early.
Give yourself enough time to truly grasp the material, practice it and then review it.
Get a full night's sleep before the exam. Your brain needs time to subconsciously digest everything you've put into it, so start early so you don't have to stay up all night.
2Read through the entirety of your notes that will be on the exam. It will refresh your memory of the material and help you remember what you learned. It will also help to make you aware of all the information in your notes, where it is located in your notes so that you know where to find them, and what might be missing from your notes. Decide if you think your notes are sufficient enough to study from. Did you miss anyclasses? Are some of your notes missing? If so, you might need to borrow someone else's notes.
3Get some good notes. If you're not a good note taker, or if there are “holes” in your notes, then ask a friend if you can copy his or her notes. Good notes can make all the difference when you're studying.
If you only have five pages of notes, but your friend has twenty, then you probably missed some important information. Compare your notes to your friend's to see where the holes are in your notes.
Re-read your notes. This time re-read your notes for understanding. In other words, you are going to study your notes. Start with the most basic information. So, if you're studying an art history unit on impressionism, make sure you know what impressionism means. Who were the most famous impressionists at the time?
Ask yourself, who, what, where, when for each theme/subject matter that you are supposed to know for the test.
You can look up information online to study from, but the best information to study from is the information presented to the class because the answers will be derived from your classroom materials. Sometimes information on the internet can vary from the information that you are presented in class.
If you are planning to study from information provided on the internet, stick with sources that end with .edu or .gov
4Ask your teacher about the test material. One of the easiest ways to begin your studying process is to find out what is on the test directly from your teacher. Many teachers will provide some guidance on what will and will not be covered on the test. Knowing which material the test will cover will help you focus on the main material that you need to study.
Your teacher most likely won't tell you exactly what is on the test, but he or she might give you some pointers by handing you a study guide, or simply announcing what the exam will cover.
These are important………
1. Have a plan. When you're preparing for a big exam, review your study materials and determine what you know and what you don't. Then, look at how far away the test will be, and plan out how you're going to study over that time. Of course you want to work on your areas of weakness, but you actually also want to work on your areas of strength, because it can be easier to improve your grade on a section that you're already good at.
Try to distance yourself from the source of distraction. Change your place of study for example. Maybe a library is a better place to concentrate than your noisy dorm. Tell the people around you how important this test is for you, and ask them to please be quiet. Most importantly, turn off your phone. If that doesn't work, give your phone to a friend and ask them to hold onto it until you're finished studying.
Try to understand and listen to each and every lesson that you have. Especially the ones you are weak in. Just study hard. Try to get someone to be motivated with you. DO NOT CRAM
Write down key words from what you are studying. It helps you memorize the phrase that you find hard to remember.
Always re-write the important sections of your notes, it will help you memorize them.
Spend less time on social networking sites (i.e., Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.).
Try to pick out the key or vital words in definitions or notes to help you remember them.
Do yoga especially breathing exercises which will make you calm, fresh and also reduce stress.
Take it easy and work at your own pace to understand the concept you are studying.
Be sure to take breaks or refresh your mind with something calming to help your brain subconsciously process information.
Eat right and have a good rest every night before an exam.
Use colors, notes, and diagrams to help you study if you're a visual learner.
There is a fine balance between work and play. Make time for both.
Don't wait till the last minute to study. You'll be frazzled and ill prepared when you're taking the test. Plus, your brain needs time to process information and that takes time.
Don't do all your studying at once. You'll learn best if you read a little bit of your textbook each day. If you stress, you might forget whatever you have memorized.
Don't make unnecessary notes to fill your pages. While reading them, you may forget the important notes!
Don't stay up all night studying. Cramming late at night is not a good idea. Make sure you get enough sleep before the day of the exam.
Children's Day is celebrated across India to increase awareness of the rights, care and education of children. It is celebrated on 14th November every year as a tribute to India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Fondly known as Chacha Nehru among children, he advocated for children to have fulfilled education. On this day, many educational and motivational programs are held across India, by and for children.
As Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru said, “the children of today will make the India of tomorrow. The way we bring them up will determine the future of the country”. Children's Day is a beautiful occasion to remember and celebrate the famous thought of Chacha Nehru. Celebration on children's way is a great way to make both children and adult aware that children are the true future of the country. Hence everyone should understand the responsibility toward providing a fulfilled childhood to every child.
Happy Children's Day

World Tsunami Awareness Day
5th November is apparently the world tsunami day.
What is tsunami?
In the dictionary it is defined as noun:
‘a long, high sea wave caused by an earthquake or other disturbance.’
"the loss of human lives from this latest tsunami is staggering" an arrival or occurrence of something in overwhelming quantities or amounts.
"a tsunami of data pours into the CNBC newsroom every minute of every trading day"
The phonetic transcription is /tsuːˈnɑːmi/
The origin is Japanese; late 19th century, from tsu ‘harbour’ + nami ‘wave’.
The scientific definition of Tsunami, (Japanese: “harbour wave”) also called seismic sea wave or tidal wave, catastrophic ocean wave, usually caused by a submarine earthquake, an underwater or coastal landslide, or a volcanic eruption.
In simple words atsunami is a natural disaster which is a series of fast-moving waves in the ocean caused by powerful earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, or simply an asteroid or a meteor crash inside the ocean. A tsunami has a very long wavelength. It can be hundreds of kilometers long. Usually, a tsunami starts suddenly. It is caused by sudden motion on the ocean floor. This sudden motion could be an earthquake, a powerful volcanic eruption, or an underwater landslide. ... Tsunamis travel across the open ocean at great speeds and build into large deadly waves in the shallow water of a shoreline. The four main causes are as follows:
(i) Undersea earthquakes:
(iii) Volcanic Eruptions:
(iv) Meteorites and Asteroids:
The biggest tsunami is with a record run-up height of 1720 feet that occurred in Lituya Bay, Alaska. On the night of July 9, 1958, an earthquake along the Fairweather Fault in the Alaska Panhandle loosened about 40 million cubic yards (30.6 million cubic meters) of rock high above the northeastern shore of Lituya Bay.
Can you stop a tsunami?
The pressure of deep-ocean sound waves could be used to stop tsunamis in their tracks, researchers have found, by dissipating their energy across wider areas and reducing the height and speed of these monster waves before they reach land.
