Topic : Filling the interstices with different hues
Date : 31 August 2017
Cultural Programme Incharge : Mrs Abha Chona
Photography :Mr Shankar Giri

Life is a journey with a start and an end. But in between these two eventualities is a blank canvas, and we as artists must fill this canvas with vivid colours and vibrant hues. This canvas is what defines the length of our life not really the start and end. This gap must not be perceived to be a wasteland but rather an entity with immense possibilities. Like Mendeleev, when we look at the periodic table of our lives these gaps must not be viewed as failures but rather chances to do better and aim higher. As someone rightly said, ‘In your lifetime, what happens to you is just 10% but how you react to it defines the rest of your 90%.’

Topic- ‘Koshish Karne Walon Ki Kabhi  Haar Nahin Hoti’
Date : 30 August 2017.
Cultural Programme Incharge: Ms.Binu Channan
Photography Incharge:Mr.Shankar Giri

It has been rightly said, ‘Try till you succeed because success comes only to people who work towards it’. One has to believe that perseverance can strengthen your motivation and in spite of all obstacles it is this trait that distinguishes the strong soul from the weak. Hence to succeed one has to move on and achieve the impossible.

Topic : Simple Living & High Thinking
Date : 30 August 2017.
Cultural Programme Incharge: Ms.Binu Channan
Photography Incharge:Mr.Shankar Giri

The current generation feels that elaborate living is more conducive than simple living. But in the long run, it leads to deviation and distracts one from the goal. Simplicity is probably the greatest virtue, In this atomic era, the harmony between the ideals of plain living and high thinking have lost their value. As is well-known, Mahatma Gandhi was always dressed in a dhoti and still moved the entire world with his dynamic thinking. Similarly, APJ Abdul Kalam, Abraham Lincoln, Lal Bahadur Shashtri, and our Prime Minister Narendra Modi have proved that simple living is a better way of achieving greatness.

Topic : The Seven Minutes
Date : 29 August 2017
Cultural Programme Incharge : Mrs Abha Chona
Photography :Mr Shankar Giri

Rabindranath Tagore once said, “The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough”. Transformation is a process and as life happens, there are tons of ups and downs and in these ups and downs, the moments of happiness that we enjoy take us by surprise. It is not that we seize them, but that they seize us. You are making these memories and suddenly one day, you are on your death-bed and your life flashes before your eyes. The nest of memories, that you had weaved all these years breaks into shards, exploding itself, giving you the opportunity to relive them again for the next seven minutes. So, if your life flashes before your eyes,what moments would you like to relive in THE SEVEN MINUTES?

Cultural Programme Incharge: Ms.Binu Channan
Photography Incharge:Mr.Shankar Giri

‘To seek the extraordinary’ a food for thought for everyone who would be encouraged to think about their life in the future and how they want it to turn out-‘Ordinary or Extraordinary’. Striving to be extraordinary through sincere efforts and not denigrating the ordinary is the key to success..

Topic: Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.
Assembly in-charge: Mrs. Binu Channan
Photography in-charge: Mr.Shankar Giri

Life is not a bed of roses. In order to achieve success, we must have the courage to face & overcome the difficulties that come along our way. Wonderful things are possible if we take our problems and turn it into a challenge. A challenge means to keep going ahead until we find a solution. Any problem where we lose faith in ourselves and stop trying, becomes a dead end..a stop sign. But as soon as we look for more ways to solve our problems, by improvising the areas required, it becomes a guideline…opening doors for new opportunities.

Topic: Censorship of expression
Date: 23rd August 2017
Cultural Programme Incharge : Ms Abha Chona
Photography Incharge : Mr Shankar Giri

Yevgeny Yevtushenko once said ,” when truth is replaced by silence, the silence is a lie.” Freedom of speech , a fundamental right , yet, denied . In a world of opinions, all different and unique, what happens when you are gagged by the cloth of censorship ? What happens when you are made to censor the way you feel , the way you think? We became an independent country 71 years ago , so why does it feel like we’re still fighting for our freedom ?

“The greatest glory  is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.

To take up new challenges is essential for growth and learning.

The strength does not come from winning, Our failures develop our strength and enthusiasm. Success comes only to people who work and not lose their enthusiasm.

Photography In charge : Mr. Shankar Giri

 ‘ The Clouds can’t hide the Starry Sky’. For the pursuit of one’s dreams, one can cross all obstacles and overcome any adversity. The difficulties have always existed but those who have overcome the difficulties have also existed.

The clouds hide the grandeur of the majestic sky but eventually the winds will always disperse them to reveal the sparkling sky. Faith in optimism will always make us overcome the hurdles and we can achieve greater heights.

Topic : Imperfectly Perfect
Date : 17th August 2017
Cultural Programme Incharge : Ms. Binu Channan
Photography Incharge : Mr. Shankar Giri

The age old generalization that nobody is perfect is a humbling advice to even the best of us. In times of need, it’s a gentle reminder that we’re not perfect. That we’re flawed. That we make mistakes. That we fail. And, that we’re Human. And that, in some beautiful way, makes us imperfectly perfect. Life is not perfect. It never has been and it never will be. But this can be good news. It means we can stop pursuing the mystical, perfect life. In fact, the sooner we realize that perfection is not available to us in this world, the sooner we can begin living better lives because of the imperfections.

Topic: “Are you going through it or are you growing through it?”
Date: 16 August 2017
Cultural Programme Incharge: Ms. Abha Chona
Photography Incharge: Mr. Shankar Giri

In the words of Henri Frederic Amiel, “He who is silent is forgotten; he who does not advance falls back.” For the truly resilient person, adversity is where he/she thrives. The way in which we decide to respond to certain challenges, is what will shape our feelings, actions, and results. We must keep in mind, that growing through experiences doesn’t happen overnight- we grow gradually, and as we grow, we learn and discover new things. We must ensure that in our quest to grow, we do not only grow physically, but emotionally, mentally and spiritually as well. By committing to lifelong learning, celebrating both good and bad times, and living our lives to the fullest, we can make our time on earth conducive for ‘growing’, and not just ‘going’ through our lives.

Topic : Independence Day
Date : 10th August, 2017
Cultural Programme Incharge : Ms. Binu Channan
Photography Incharge : Mr. Shankar Giri

“Where the mind is without fear, and the head is held high…” was Rabindranath Tagore’s ideal free country. As we celebrate India’s 70th Independence Day, it becomes imperative to reflect, are we really free? While we are trying to break the shackles of British imperialism, we also need to question ourselves about the social evils that are gnawing at our society and hampering our growth and development. If we have to soar high like a falcon, the youth of the nation that needs to realize that they are the chosen ones on whose shoulders India’s flight now rests. They need to move beyond the “dead habit(s)” (Tagore). They are the ones who need to dream and explore new horizons. As V.S. Naipaul aptly wrote in A Bend In The River, “[A]fter all, we make ourselves according to the ideas we have of our possibilities.”

Topic : Not All Thos Who Wander Are Lost
Date: 8 August 2017
Cultural Programme Incharge : Ms Abha Chona
Photography :Mr Shankar Giri

In the pursuit of success, we are often compelled to follow the path others have taken. Those who deviate from this path are often considered to be lost and pulled back into it. However, it is often seen that great leaders are those who make their own paths, those who wander. Wandering means exploration: the single most important human quality that propels research and development and sets us apart. Exploration – both internal and external – is, therefore, an extremely essential part of the journey that is our life.

Topic : Power of imagination is infinite.
Date : 03 August 2017.
Cultural programme incharge : Mrs. Abha Chona.
Photography : Mr. Shankar giri.
Talking about imagination, its boundaries are still to be discovered. Just as the universe, endless and limitless in its very essense, so is the power of imagination, hence, infinite. Imagination starts from where reality ends, it takes perspectives to new heights. The unfathomable power of imagination has successfully played the role of being the driving factor for humans to conquer each and every obstacle that ever hindered their development and continuous advancement. The message, that was successfully conveyed by the students, was that ” Every individual has an infinite power of imagination, but it is important to realise it and use it in good faith”.

True friendship is a way of being mutually lovable to each other! In fact every flourishing relationship has a whiff friendship into it. It’s that transparent and lucid bond between two people where both of the participants are able to share every subtle thing cooking inside the mind even if it is not worth it. And in that way it’s indeed important to maintain true friendship in any relationship

Assembly XII-D 01-08-2017

Assembly- XII-D
Class Teacher- Ms. Suchitra Kaushik
Class rep- Dr. Shachindra Sharma
Vice Principal- Dr. Renu Nayyar
Topic- Ikigai

Ikigai is a Japanese concept that means “a reason for being.” Everyone, according to the Japanese culture, has an ikigai.

Ikigai is about your personal reason for existence. The assembly focussed on our search of self as teenagers, students, daughters, sons and siblings, and various other roles we play.
Being in the senior year, it’s quite common for us to feel stressed about our future after school. Some of us even give up hope if our problems seem too big to us. It is very important to know and act upon what you were born to do which is something we choose to a great extent.
In today’s age, where all we see are the scripted and filtered moments of other people’s lives, and compare ourselves to these seemingly perfect people, self love is crucial. It is very important to know your own worth, and believing that we are all here for a greater purpose.
Ikigai teaches you to come into your own, and as a result, come alive.
