Dreams- Opening the Gateway to Self-Expression

Are you often left wondering what your dreams mean, and if they could provide guidance in your real life. Yes, our dreams do make some sense. As quoted by Brian Tracy, “You are what you think about most of the time”. It is true, by thinking about something quite often, you let that thought or ambition enter your subconscious state.

When you think of something too deeply, your brain works in a way to find out solutions to achieve the same in reality.

How to work with children and their dreams-

There are numerous advantages of a dream sharing practice with your children. It is a way of showing children the creative potential of their brains. The point is to make them realize that their imagination produces meaningful and useful information. By learning to value their inner self and wisdom from an early age, children can grow up better with their intuition and understand more about the spiritual side of themselves. 

When you start valuing your dreams, you can better validate your creativity and understand the importance of self expression. It helps in keeping your imagination open and free flowing. You develop a certain form of trust in yourself and your own process of perception.

Reading bedtime stories is also a very good way of incubating positive dreams in the mind of your children.

Moving towards the final thought and understanding your subconscious-

Getting your subconscious working towards your goals will bring you closer to success because your subconscious works on solutions 24 hours/day every day.

It will present you with new ideas, insights and plans. Remember that the most important thing is that you act on these ideas and insights. Because no plan ever mattered that wasn’t put into action.




When Disney Became the Teacher

author02 Srishti Anand 14 Aug 2017 3

We all have grown up watching Mickey Mouse, Cinderella etc. We have loved them and their lives. There were times when we related ourselves with the characters and wished that the positions could be exchanged. Disney has been present in our lives at every step. From the way we dress up to the way we behave, somehow children adapt to the Disney theme of love and perfection.

Disney has left traces of itself in our daily lives. It taught us to be honest, noble, loving and helped us in developing our morals. Seeing Cinderella suffer because of accepting the fruit from the strange witch, we learnt not to trust strangers and not to accept any of their gifts. Beauty and beast indirectly instilled in students the value of not judging a book by its cover. Even the beast looked hideous and scary on the inside but was a kind and generous man on the inside. Apart from that when children saw the insatiable thirst for knowledge that Belle had, they got inspired to do the same. We all dreamt of having Aladdin’s magic lamp, to fulfill our wishes. Little did we know that the Aladdin also taught us the value of putting in efforts and not leaving everything on magic or god.

Even now when we hear the word Disney, it awakens inside us the childlike glee and makes us happy. Watching shows on Disney transported us into a world of magic, where everything was possible. This somehow made us believe that this also was true for the real world, i.e. if you worked hard enough, nothing was impossible to achieve. Growing up we all realize that life is not like it was portrayed on the Disney, but it never failed in delivering to us the message that- Despair is not the end, you just need to look out for the light at the end of the dark tunnel.

With the developing number of radio stations in India, interest for RJs or Radio Jockeys is expanding step by step. The pattern began with VJs or Video Jockeys when channel V (music channel) appeared. After that, radio stations began getting to be distinctly basic and hosts that used to present projects on radio stations were soon begun to being alluded as RJs.

Radio jockey or RJ is a person who hosts radio programs. The principle occupation of the RJ is to communicate with gatherings of people and play music in the middle of the program. Radio jockey for the most part host just for a couple of hours in a day and get a good paycheck. It is not as simple as it looks. There are some criteria which should be satisfied in the event that you need to wind up distinctly a famous RJ. 

No formal training is required for getting into this field. To get into government radio channels, you ought to in any event be a graduate. For getting into private radio channels you can even be a twelfth go out. Maximum age utmost to get into this field is 35 years.

Since it is an upcoming vocation alternative, there are very few organizations which offer training here. Just few of the organizations give particular training and these foundations have been opened by few of the outstanding RJs. Radio jockeys has unquestionably gotten up to speed as a major vocation in India. So certainly try it out on the off chance that you have been thinking about it as a vocation choice.




WHO WILL BE THE NEXT COACH OF THE INDIAN CRICKET TEAM

Everyone out there is rubbing their hands together eagerly waiting to know who the next coach of the Indian cricket team would be. The Indian cricket board sent out a press release, inviting applications for the post of the men’s team’s Head Coach soon after the Indian cricket team set out for their Champions Trophy campaign. It was said that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in their report to the NDTV conveyed that they are not happy with Anil Kumble’s play in negotiating players’ pay just ahead of the IPL final.

With some anti-Kumble BCCI officials convincing Virendar Sehwag to apply for the position, the issue even got hotter. Rumors soon spread that there were issues between Virat Kohli, the captain of the Indian cricket team, and Anil Kumble, the head coach. Following this, Sourav Ganguly, former skipper, asked the Indian team at their hotel for feedback on him as coach. 

A three-member cricket advisory committee of Ganguly, VVS Laxman and Sachin Tendulkar was assigned with the responsibility of deciding whether or not Kumble stays the coach. The committee finally decided to retain Kumble. 

Kohli who addressed the media in Birmingham just before the ICC Champions Trophy’s India-Pakistan match, said that there was no issue with Kumble and those issues stated were just made up by people. He stated “It’s been really good working with Anil Kumble”. He thus dismissed all the rumors and put an end to all those. 

Sources also said that Virat never complained to any BCCI official that he has issues with Kumble. Further, that if Virat and Kumble doesn’t get along, there is no guarantee that Viral and Sehwag will get along. For, every member in the Indian cricket team knows that Sehwag is also a no-nonsense individual.

With the CBSE class-12 results announced just a few days ago, everyone including your neighbor, your vegetable vendor, your maid, your folks, your folks’ folks, your tailor, and many others suddenly seems to have developed interest in you. Twitter is flowing with hilarious reactions highlighting the ugly, good and bad associated with it. We have collected a few for you. Read and enjoy. 

1. What to tell a student who has got 95% and wants to send her paper for re-evaluation? 

2. Verma ji is glad that his CBSE failed son scored higher than his neighbor Sharma ji’s failed son. Verma ji said with tears in his eyes “Even while failing, he made sure that our naak and izaat in the society remains undamaged”.

3. Someone wrote “Forget students and their scores. I feel for cell phones. For, they are the ones whom most parents will be blame for their child’s bad performance in the exams”. 

4. CBSE results have been accomplishing something since 1962 that most social strategies could not-uniting relatives.

5. With the average CBSE scores increasing with each passing year, the best reply to your aunt’s query “Son, how much have you scored?” would be “More than you”.

6. No one really cares about your scores except... your relatives, their relatives, and the relatives of their relatives.

7. I strongly suggest that by the go, the “CBSE Board Results Day” should be proclaimed as the “National Relatives Day”. 

Hope you had a good laugh. With that we would like to part with our final words realizing the immense stress that students are undergoing at the moment. Everyone including parents, students and their loved ones should realize that marks aren’t everything in life. One doesn’t need to be labeled a topper to find success in his or her endeavors. There a loads of career choices to pick from. Do visit FairGaze to get genuine help in this regard. 




History as a Solution for the Present

The term history has been taken from the Greek work ‘historia’. History can be defined as the study of past. It covers the different aspect of learning of the past, which can be broadly classified as event, memory, presentation etc. Scholars who are involved into studying and observing history are called historians.

History is a very broad term. Everything ranging from the place we live in to the mathematical concepts we use, has had a history. Knowing history keeps us rooted to our culture. Studying and knowing the things of past helps in getting closer to our community and culture. In the process, it makes us better global citizens.

History is basically made up of sequences related to some particular culture. These events are given the term of cultural heritage or legends. The nature of history has evolved over time and is still continuously changing. The modern type of study of history involves wide study of specific geographical regions and their development. 

For long, history has provided the students with skills to observe and analyse complex situations with an open mind. Therefore it allows them to make decisions keeping in mind the lessons of the past.History has been taught at academic level for a long time. This helps students in getting in touch with the events of past and knowing how their culture developed over the centuries.

Being aware about the history is important for any individual. Studying history allows you to treat the current affairs with a wiser perspective. This is because, whatever occurs in today’s time is in some way the result of or influenced by the happenings of the past. 

People tend to question as to why some people act in ways different from the other. All of this behavioural aspect is based on history. History has been a source of cultural awareness for people all over the globe. This is the reason why researchers believe that if we are aiming at improving the present, an authentic knowledge of the past is important.

We at FairGaze, a socio-educational platform for teachers, mentors and students, have come up with some tips to help you be organized during this holiday season.

Make a list of the things you need to do in the holiday season. This should include those things that cannot be skipped. For instance, attending your cousin’s wedding.

Prioritize your needs and wants, and timetable them. If you stick to your schedule, it is likely that you will get everything done without getting weary.

 Plan some breaks. When you are making your timetable for your holiday period, ensure that you leave some blank spaces in between. During these times, you can simply relax or do something that strikes you at that moment. 

If you are travelling or if folks are traveling to your place, come up with a master doc of the travel modes and routes. Place a printout of this on your refrigerator or in a file on your phone- so that it is easily accessible. You can also distribute the master doc to everyone concerned. Make sure that everyone is there on time, along with who is picking who and at what time.

Your mom does so much for you. She has sacrificed many things for you. Her presence in your life has to be celebrated every single day. With Mother’s Day at hand, FairGaze, a socio-educational platform for students, teachers and mentors, brings you an awesome method to make a good looking mother’s day card. 

This way you can create a beautifully stripped mother’s day card. We have chosen this because any one can do it, and it does not take much time too. 

Things you will need: A plain card (color or white), different colors and patterns of scrapbook paper (spotted, stripped, flowered, plain, etc), a pair of scissors, glue, a strip of scalloped paper, and a pink ribbon.

How do you do it?

Step1: Place the plain card over a horizontal surface with its front facing you.

Step 2: Cut strips of scrapbook papers (different colors and patterns) in a way that each of those measures the breadth of the plain card.

Step 3: Stick each strip horizontally over the card one after the other, leaving no gap in between. Ensure that the colors and patterns of the adjacent layers are complementary and that they look good together. 

Step 4: Stick a strip of scalloped paper below the final strip. 

Step 5: Tie a pink ribbon round the card half way down the horizontal stripes to accent the pretty layers. 

Step 6: On the right hand corner of the card’s bottom, write a message for your mom. It can be a simple “I love you” or “Thank you mom”. 

Now that your card is ready, let us add something more to it. Write a beautiful message for her inside the card. Expressing gratitude for the daily love that she showers on you, or recalling a bonding moment that you shared with her over the card can add a magical touch to it!

We invite you to visit FairGaze for engaging with like-minded people, connecting with fellow students, acquiring expert guidance, getting your questions answered, and gaining access to valuable resources.




The Sun Moon and Calendar

author02 Srishti Anand 08 May 2017 5

Calendars have always come to our rescue, in situations when we forget important dates and occasions.

The question arises, as to how this concept of dates and months actually came up?

The world's oldest calendar which dates back to more than 10,000 years was discovered in Scotland. Today we follow the Gregorian calendar.  Earlier the calendar that was followed was the Julian calendar, which was admirably close to the actual length of the year. The term calendar itself is taken from calendae, the term for the first day of the month in the Roman calendar.

The calendar is a system of organizing days for social, religious, commercial or administrative purposes. This is done by giving names to the intervals of time (days, weeks, months and years). These intervals are usually synchronised with the cycle of the moon and sun. In the earlier times the duration of a month was calculated according to the cycle of the moon around Earth. Thus the term Month came up, referring to ‘moonth’. The concept of month was based on the moon’s motion around the earth. But this connection was broken in the calendar that is used now.

The world does not have one fixed standardized calendar. Different cultures have gotten made different calendars. This has resulted in us having Chinese calendar, Mayan calendar etc. 

Formulating a calendar was important, because calculating dates is an important task for deciding the sacred days of the year. These sacred days were decided according to the regular intervals of the occurrences in a year.  It also helped the early researchers in maintaining a proper intelligible record of the events of the past.

Calendars have always been an integral part of our daily schedule. We may not give them a justified due but without calendars all the days, dates and events would have been lost.



Social Media – An Education Hub

Social media is an integral part of the modern era. It is the key element of communication and marketing these days.  A growing number of schools and teachers are utilizing social media in the classroom to further engage students in the learning process. 

Interestingly, social media is an important tool that teachers can use to make their classrooms more engaging, interesting and culturally diverse. 

Apparently, social media can be used to make studies more collaborative and efficient. It is a common platform within the reach of most of us.

One reason social media is so popular is that it allows people of all age groups and demographics to personalize the way they interact with the web. In the modern scenario, social media is increasingly being used as a study tool, especially for today's tech-savvy students.

How does it make learning better and engaging?

 It's common for many students to be challenged by the same learning concept or course assignment. With social media, a centralized and well designed platform can be offered to the entire class or a group of students. The collective knowledge of an entire class can be directed on a common portal to achieve effective and efficient learning for all.

The Social broadcasting system offers many other advantages like-

1.Sharing of ideas: Social networking sites allow users to share ideas, activities, events and interests within their individual networks. Thus making it possible to connect with people who share interests and activities across political, economic and geographic borders.

2. Cost effective: Social media is cost effective in every possible way. Most of the educational, informational as well as recreational content can be accessed for free. Unlike other forms of media like electronic and print, you need not pay to buy space for publishing your content.

3.A boon for the curious ones: Students are always up for asking the silliest of the questions and such media interactivity can prove to be very beneficial to them. Other forms of media do not offer two-way interaction and feedback for better understanding of concepts and clearing doubts.




Discipline without Punishment

Almost all children, parents and teachers are familiar with the characters Kaira and Ishaan from the highly praised movies “Dear Zindagi” and “Taare Zameen Par” respectively. But the question arises that had we learnt something from these wonderfully picturised movies on Parenting, Discipline and Children? Our children add that extra sunshine to our lives. They need a lot of tender care and warmth from us. As they grow, each and every parent and teacher also grow with them and learn a lot. 

Discipline is part and parcel of every student’s life. Thus, it become important to inculcate children with values required at every round of life. Children have great observation and learning powers. Thus, if parents or teachers try to inculcate discipline forcefully then children revert back aggressively. Scolding them or acting rude towards their wish list may result in devastating results. Our rudeness make children fearful, aggressive and under confident. They start hiding their emotions and become inexpressive and introvert. Therefore to avoid such conditions, children should be shown love and care. Then parents and teachers naturally take a lead over their children. They themselves start imbibing discipline as a much needed moral value. Connectivity with children is crucial as only then they feel to be an important part of family and become confident to share their feelings. 

Parents and teachers should themselves do things that they want from their children. One must not forget to appreciate their children on their positive sides. It boosts up them more and creates a sense of right and wrong doing. The key to teach children discipline is staying calm and making them believe on their capabilities and skills. When calmness is there, trust is developed, discipline is followed, skills are enhanced, path is defined, goals are set and finally success is reached by a child. 




Is Rising Technology Changing Your Child's Lifestyle?

Expanding technology has changed the way people are living in this world and it has put a huge impact on children’s life. 

If we talk about old days, a mere 20 years ago, children used to prefer playing sports and outdoor activities. However, families of the 21st century are totally different. Today, children are more connected with technologies such as the laptop, mobile phones, tabs and much more. The technology has changed the very foundation of our families and it causes a breakdown of core values that long ago were the fabric that held families together.

To make lives active, faster and more efficient parents heavily rely on communication, information, and transportation technology. Entertainment technology such as TV, the Internet, etc has advanced so rapidly, that families have scarcely noticed the significant impact and changes to their lifestyles. 

Earlier children used to play outside all day, riding bikes, playing sports and building forts. Masters of imaginary games, children of the past created their own form of play that didn’t require costly equipment or parental supervision. Many experts have also advised these outdoor games to children for a healthy mind and body. 

Despite the facts, children now rely on technology for the majority of their play, grossly limiting challenges to their creativity and imaginations.  Moreover, excess use of technology also limiting necessary challenges to children’s bodies to achieve optimal sensory and motor development. However, there are several ways through which parents can help their child to maintain a good lifestyle. 

The parents can involve in various sports and creative activities along with their children to make them understand the benefit of sports. Playing alongside your children make them fit. Additionally, it is a great way for parents to show they are interested in their child’ life and education.




Preservation of Indian Heritage

No one around the world is unknown to the charm of diverse Indian heritage. There are so many monuments in our Incredible India which are highly recognized in worldwide associations of Travel and Tourism. Everyone across the globe is amazed by the united colors of so many cultures in India. Our historical heritage helps us to maintain peace and harmony. It makes our motherland stand tall with pride.

Now –a- days, Indian heritage is not left in the mode of its original beauty. It cannot withstand the environmental and societal factors. In fact there are so many monuments not recognized under any authority.  One such example is Khetri Mahal in Jhunjhunu district of Rajasthan which is now used as Muslim Hostel. On contrary monuments like India Gate, Gate Way of India, Ajanta and Ellora Caves, Hawa Mahal, etc. are a great source of recreation for tourists. These monuments are under full observation of Government Security. But, monuments which also add to economy of India like Amber Fort, Chand Baori, Bhangarh Fort, etc. witness huge damage from people’s side. Corners of monuments are spitted with tobacco, wastes are thrown in galleries, walls are scribed with love signs, etc. It decreases the charm of monuments and creates a bad impression on tourists. Monuments are a source of legacy provided to us by our great ancestors. That’s why caring and preserving them is our prime responsibility.

Thus apart from providing monetary support from Government to preserve our monuments, we as an individual should also create self awareness. Our monuments are our pride. Therefore, we should not indulge ourselves in such absurd activities and damage our Indian Heritage. We should also try to motivate others to preserve monuments. Save Indian Heritage!




Is your child good at decision making?

author02 Priyanka Negi 13 Apr 2017 4

Many experts have suggested that decision making is the best lesson which a parent can teach their children. The process of making decisions not only enhance a child’s capacity to explore the world but it works as a path of success for them.

It is always good to teach them making a right and sensible decisions but it does not mean that the children should not be allowed to make poor decisions. In fact, making poor decisions helps the child to learn how to make better ones for coming future. 

According to the child experts, decision making is a skill through which children can become very good at making bad decisions. This situation usually occurs when parents don’t hold them responsible for their poor decisions. However, parents instead, bail them out of the trouble their bad decision brings. 

In a study, experts found that decision-making is a complex process that takes years to master. Additionally, the process begins with making a child understand about decision-making. Children are prominent in making sudden judgments and acting on them without thinking. 

However, parents can teach them to think before acting on certain issues. The second stem is making children understand what motivates their decisions. One problem is that children are often faced with contradictory motivations. They may know that doing something is unintelligent, but they may feel peer pressure to do it anyway. 

It is been found that if decisions come down to doing what is right or what is wrong, the majority of children will almost always choose popularity. The experts have suggested that the children should ask themselves about the consequences of their actions. 

Parents can also shape their children’s decision-making process via coaching them. Additionally, the parents can also make their children understand the consequences of good and bad decisions that can help their children to live a peaceful life.




Better Late Than Never

author02 Anubha Das 10 Apr 2017 7
author02

This proverb “Better late than never” is an ancient proverb with a deep hidden meaning. It has been used for many years and in many cultures.

It is often expressed with a degree of irony, it seems like saying something positive but in fact simply remarking on someone's lateness. Time and again all of us are told to complete the tasks assigned to us on time and being lazy most of us fail to do an assigned work on time. The result is either we fully avoid the work or stop doing it further.

It is better to do a thing even if it after the scheduled time to do that thing so that we don’t regret of not even trying. Many times in life we either don’t get the opportunity or we miss the opportunity. During such times we should not worry about the lost opportunities but instead we should try to continue doing the job. Even though we don’t finish the work on time, we do get the contentment of at least completing it.

Thus, this tells us that no should ever think of failure, even when they are doing something after the planned time. Though it is late when he acts, he can still reap the success because time is not a blockade for a talented man. 

 

 




Forgiveness- A Fundamental Facet

author02 Shatrujit Chauhan 04 Apr 2017 7
author02

“No person is so deep in sin, so ingrained in a wicked lifestyle, or so steeped in evil that he or she cannot be saved.”

When someone you care about hurts you, you can hold on to anger, resentment and thoughts of revenge. But you always have the choice to embrace forgiveness and move on wearing a smile.

Nearly everyone gets hurt by the actions or words of other people. Perhaps your mentor criticized your intellect, your colleague sabotaged a project or you fall prey to someone’s greed. These wounds can leave you with imperishable feelings of anger, bitterness or even vengeance.

But if you don't practice forgiveness, you might be the one who pays the most. A very popular saying goes “An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind”. 

Thus, by embracing forgiveness, you can also embrace peace, hope, gratitude and joy. Forgiveness can lead you down the path of physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, making you a more compassionate and understanding individual. 

People often link forgiveness with reconciliation but forgiveness does not always include settlement or even interaction with the ones who have hurt you. Forgiveness is a conscious and deliberate decision to release feelings of resentment towards a person regardless of whether they actually deserve your forgiveness or not.

 The benefits of being a forgiver are perhaps intangible, and the perks incalculable. In no time, you find yourself high on self – esteem and amidst healthier relationships. 

To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.



Look up and Get Lost

“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.” 
― Marcus Aurelius

Agreeing with Marcus Aurelius, people today have taken up Star Gazing as a separate hobby. It is an activity for people who enjoy watching the sky and looking for objects up there with unaided eye, binoculars or telescope. For these individuals, a scientific approach is not the main aim many amateurs make a contribution to the field of astronomy but barely monitoring and tracking variable stars and asteroids.

A typical stargazer is one who does not depend upon the astronomers for their primary source of support or income. He need not have a professional degree or any advanced professional training on this particular subject. An individual may have a degree of experience in astronomy so that he can work alongside professional astronomers.

Stargazing is not just associated with the process of viewing the night’s sky, at a time when most of the celestial objects and phenomenon are visible. Sometimes it also includes people working during the day and looking for sun spots and solar eclipse. Amateurs mostly look at the sky with the naked eye, but the common tools used for the hobby are telescope and binoculars.

For people living in a city with polluted air and clouds, the hobby may be carried out at someplace where the view is not obstructed by buildings and such.

People have been studying the night sky throughout the history, but recently such hobby-like astronomy has become an activity for clearly distinguished professionals and enthusiasts.

A few applications that may help you to take your hobby to another level are-

Starwalk –It allows you to point at the sky and see what’s up there in real time. It is based on your location. If you find something you can tap at it and find more information about it.

 

Google Sky Map- It is basically Google Maps, but for space. The data that it has is pulled from a wide range of sources like the Hubble Space Telescope, and NASA's Chandra satellite.

 

So, all astronomy enthusiasts out there, this is your time to take up what you love and contribute to the world of stars and planet from your end.

 



Role of Leadership in Student’s Life

author02 Bhavna Sharma 18 Mar 2017 23

Students are a bunch of beautiful flowers who blossom with a lot of learning and training. They require mentoring at each step of their lives so that they can spread their wings and fly high in the sky. Here, leadership is one such quality which comes into play to make them understand rules of success and failure. Schools follow an amazing process to inculcate sense of leadership amongst students. It ensures continuous and comprehensive learning for students. Students are chosen to become captain of sports team, head boy/head girl, monitor of class, etc. and thus encouraging leadership skills. 

Leadership plays a crucial role in life of a student. It is one of the deciding factors in formation of confidence in students which is highly required in their professional lives.  Leadership is that value which makes a student best out of the rest. If children want to reach success then they should practice leadership activities. They should participate in as much activities as they can and should earn certificates. As said “All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy”. All the time being in studies will not be able to develop leadership. Therefore, to build leading qualities, co – curricular activities and sports should become a part of every student. This is going to boost confidence and leadership skills.

Whether it is corporate, politics, sports, media, entertainment or any other industry, every field requires people of high motivation value and leadership skills. Apart from spreading influence on others, leadership is also important for self awareness, discipline and self – independence. Thus, “Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence.”



Hard Work Beats Talent

People can generally be classified into two groups those who have talents and those who do not have talent to do something.

A really talented person succeeds in his work. He makes use of his abilities appropriately and achieves good grades. He is confident of doing his work. He uses his tools in the right way, even if they are not excellent. 

At the same time, if a less talented person even if given excellent tools, fails to achieve good results. His talents are limited. He tries to find lame excuses for his failure to achieve good results. He blames his tools for the unfinished work he has done. He does not want to admit that he is a bad workman. He deliberately forgets the fact that his talents are limited. 

This is perhaps most evident in a student who does not do well in his examinations. Instead of looking for reasons within himself, he looks outside for someone or something to blame such as a difficult question paper, a leaky pen or a wrathful examiner. Similarly a dancer who fails to perform well on a particular event attributes his poor performance to the incompetent musicians, accompanists or to the poor stage management.


While the former blames the opportunities and people around him for his failure, the latter without complaint utilizes and succeeds in life.

One can think of a healthy mind only in a healthy body. Both physical and mental well being are the prerequisites of great achievements in a man’s life.


Most people believe that sports lead to only physical and mental fitness. However, it has many hidden benefits as well. Sports and good education can become a way to achieve success in the life of a student. Both should be given equal priority in the schools to pursue and make the bright career of students.


Sports not only mean the physical exercise but also promote the concentration level of students helping them study better. Playing sports brings highest level of confidence and teaches discipline to students. Sports are the best ways to deal with the ups and down in the life by defining the balance between body and mind, joy and sorrow. They are the sources of recreation. They provide relief and a sense of relaxation in a life full of monotony marked by miseries, hardships and hurdles.


The standard of sports in India is far from satisfactory. So, the Government should take steps to improve this standard. Playing sports for at least an hour on daily basis should be made necessary in the schools for the welfare of the children and better future of the country.

As indicated by the study “A good night’s sleep can translate to improved academic performance”. So a student ought to have a very well defined sleeping routine obliging their study plan.

What picture rings a bell when you hear "study"? Sitting with a gathering of friends in the library, testing each other on the core concepts of any subject?

A decent study routine can represent the deciding moment for your academic achievement. Building up a study strategy takes rehearse, yet the fundamental standards are something each student ought to be familiar with.

First things first,you have to make space to learn, both physically and sensibly. Clear your psyche and your space with the goal that you can concentrate just on the current topic you're attempting to understand and study. Make yourself satisfied with the goal that concentrating on is a good thing for you and will help you understand. Compose your study session to fit how much your mind retains. The vast majority of what we hold is toward the start and end of the session – not the center. Make an arrangement that keeps you concentrated throughout the study.

You just need to build some maps that will help you visualize everything you learn. Clock is ticking, get started.

Parents appear to encounter expanding weight with respect to their youngsters' instruction. Everybody needs their child to peruse well, be at the highest point of the class scholastically and flourish socially at school.

The question that rises at the forefront of our thoughts is "The thing that you consider as achievement?" The best response to this testing inquiry is it depends. In particular,it relies on upon what you consider success.

Education boards contend that accomplishment at school is primarily about accomplishing excellent academic results. In the event that scholarly prevalence matters most over you, then you may wish to set up your child for accomplishment by empowering them at home. Even masterminding coaching in maths, science, or other valuable themes, and concentrating on can be great review propensities from a youthful age. In any case, some proof proposes that this kind of approach may not be useful for a few children.

A few people want to characterize accomplishment at school in much more extensive terms than basically a test score. For instance, a test score won't depict how much a child cherishes realizing, how inquisitive a child is nor will it stress the imaginative aptitudes a child has created. Test scores neglect to give knowledge into a child’s point of view, whether he or she is hopeful, strong, adaptable, and ready to work autonomously.

The way we set up our child for accomplishment at school will depend toa great extent on how we characterize accomplishment at school.
