A Change For Good

I thank Mrs.Kumar for changing my elective from Physical Education to Yoga.

I was really disappointed at first that my elective had been changed.Now after two years of Yoga and finally getting done with it, I think back and honestly it was one of the best things that happened to me. Yoga has improved my concentration and has also made me more calm. It is because of Yoga that I am doing well in my studies.

Yoga has changed my life and getting Yoga does not mean you are dull or not very smart but if you get Yoga you should be blessed as it influences your life in a good way.

Later on in my life Yoga will help me make the right decisions and it will also help  me to keep my life moderate and not make me greedy.Yoga is good. Thank you Ma’am.

A Change In Technology

Technology and Banking

Banking has been with us since the merchants of Ancient Babylon started offering grain loans to farmers who needed to transport goods between towns.

In the 1990’s in India, one has probably spent considerable time in bank queues, to withdraw money, deposit cash or cheques and other transactions. Banks now offer opportunities online and on the Mobile. It’s possible to do everything online, from simple transactions to complicated issues such as applying for a loan, thus increasing efficiency by saving time, money energy and making it more error free. What a change!Related image

Technology and Communication

Recent advances in technology over the last few decades have revolutionized the way we communicate with each other. At the heart of this revolution is the Internet, breaking down barriers of distance and cost to make us more connected than ever before.

Cell phones
Cell phones and other mobile devices such as tablets enable us to communicate with hundreds of contacts with a few taps on the screen. It is no longer necessary to use face-to-face contact and speech to communicate – we can use short SMS messages, or leave a voicemail, or send a tweet from our phones.

When speaking on the phone is not enough; Skype can be used to see the person.
This is a good substitute when people are far apart they use this to communicate face to face.

Related imageEmail
Emailing is the art of letter-writing of the 21st century. It enables us to send the same message to dozens of people at the same time, and it enables us to accompany our words with images, links and other files. Email has made communication more varied and flexible, giving us new ways to spread information, make new acquaintances or apologize for wrongdoing. If we don’t want to meet a person, or we can’t, it can be done by Email.


Social Networking
Social networking is all about sharing. Sites such as Facebook and Twitter have transformed the way we communicate with people across the world.  It has opened up new ways of communicating with our friends and family that in the past would have required tremendous amount of resources of time, money, gadgets etc.,
Technology has made communicating with others so easy that it is often necessary to try and limit the use of these tools to avoid overload.


Technology and Healthcare
Remote surgery (also known as telesurgery) is the ability for a doctor to perform surgery on a patient even though they are not physically in the same location
Remote surgery combines elements of robotics, cutting edge communication technology such as high-speed data connections and elements of management information systems. Most of these robots are controlled by surgeons at the location of the surgery.
In future it promises to allow the expertise of specialized surgeons to be available to patients worldwide, without the need for patients to travel beyond their local hospital.Related image

In the recent years, our respected Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi has introduced various campaigns through which he aims to make a change in the society.Related image





Taking an example of ‘Swatch Bharat Abhiyan’. “A clean India would be the best tribute India could pay to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150 birth anniversary in 2019,” said Shri Narendra Modi as he launched the Swachh Bharat Mission at Rajpath in New Delhi. On 2nd October 2014, Swachh Bharat Mission was launched throughout the country as a national movement.

Having a clean and green Bharat is his only goal through this campaign.


Secondly, speaking about his ‘Make In India Campaign’. Through this campaign, which was launched in September 2014, his motive is to encourage domestic production of goods and products in India.

Unforgettable Childhood Memories

A memory peddler came to my house one day,

To ask if I had any memories to give away.

I thought,  memories? I may have one to spare,

After all, when it comes to memories, everyone has a fair share.

I remembered, faintly – when I was but one,

Laughing and playing and having so much fun.

I recalled then, a time when I was two,

Painstakingly learning to tie my shoe.

I recollected immediately, when I was three,

Being innocent and playful and gloriously carefreRelated imagee.

I thought then of when I was four,

Arguing with my mother over who she loved more.

I remembered celebrating the birthdays ages at five, six, and seven,

When blowing out candles and receiving presents were like being in heaven.

I remembered running,  and playing on the beach,

When everyone I met had something new to teach.

I  recalled the time when I was old enough to kno

What ‘photosynthesis’ was all about and how it made plants grow.

Memories made with the people we love,

Feel like little glimpses of heaven sent from above.

Good times come and go, but memories last forever,

They are a bond between you and your past that nobody can sever,

For memories are indeed timeless treasures,

That exceed far beyond ordinary measures.

I told him, ” I am sorry, they’re all too precious to give away!”

And that’s the story of how the ped
dler left empty-handed that day.

I vividly remember those days when I felt sad about not having a younger sibling.

Soon my prayers were answered! I finally had a companion in my lovely baby sister. I fondly recollect the day she was born.  I went to the hospital and carried her in my arms. The look in her eyes when she first saw me is something that I will never forget for years! I felt extremely happy as a sister when she uttered my name for the first time.Related image

Every passing year since then has been more and more memorable. She jokes, plays, fights and even complains about me but our love for each other has only increased. Today when I flip through the old photos, all those fond memories come gushing to me.

My sister is very caring and loving. She is always there to comfort me when I feel low. She is my life companion in whom I can confide my secrets just as I share many a funny moment. Life without her is truly unimaginable!

Golden Memories

The best time of my life is my time  in  school

I study  Newton, Pascal and Joule.

Not coming to school on time, I am given a  punishment

So being on time for me is a  great achievement.

When finding the value of x, y and zRelated image is a great task

Now I can solve the trickiest of the sums you’ll ask.

When your  friends’ tiffin seem tastier than yours

And eating it more like monkeys than matures.

And begging for games period is our part time job

Thinking about these memories just makes me sob.

Having those amazing times with friends and chatting endlessly

Oh how I love this and sometimes  miss them

I really love  the time

When we study, play and sing rhymes.

And  I look at these times and admire our place

Life simply moves to  another phase.

यादे इन दिनों की

आज से बीस साल के बाद,

जब हम अपनी-अपनी ज़िन्दगी में डूब जायेंगे,Image result for childhood memories wallpaper

दफ्तर, नौकरी, परिवार के साथ,
मन के किसी कोने में रहेंगी आज -कल की बात?

जब रेडियो पर २०१६ का गाना बजेगा,
क्या हम इसी तरह जी भर के गा पाएंगे ?
या हम सुनकर, यादो में सिर्फ खो जाएंगे?

पाठशाला में मित्र से लड़ाई-झगड़ा,
अध्यापिका  की डाँट,
दोस्तों से हँसी-मज़ाक का सिलसिला ,
क्या हर पल, हर कदम हम भूल पाएंगे?

हर सहेली का चेहरा,हर टीचर की वाणी,
हम सब को आज लगती है जो प्यारी,
परंतु जैसे समय का पहिया घूमेगा ,
यह पल भी हमारे मन से मिट जायेंगे|

यह  ज़िन्दगी का सुनहरा पन्ना ,
हर दिन,हर पल को जी भर के जीना,
ओस की  बूंदो जैसे यह यादे भी मिट जाएंगी ||

विस्मृति भी वरदान है……..

जीवन मे कभी-कभी कुछ प्यारा-सा खो जाता है,Image result for memories wallpaper
प्रियतम वस्तु के खो जाने से,
जीवन फिर अर्थहीन-सा हो जाता है।

मेरी सुख स्मृति, मेरे बचपन के मज़ेदार दिन  है,
पीछे मुड़ कर हम कभी उन पलों को नहीं पाएँगे,
सुख के लम्हे-दुख के लम्हे खो जाएँगे,
आनेवाला दिन कुछ नया दिखाएगा।

कुछ खो जाने से समय नहीं थम जाता है,
जीवन की गति चलती रहेगी,
दुख के क्षण पीछे छूट जाएँगे।

स्मृति जैसे मनुष्य के मन का मान है,
विस्मृति मनुष्य को प्रभु का वरदान है,
दोनों के होने से जीवन आसान है!

Memories I Cherish


“The brightest memory fades faster than the dullest ink.” ~Claudia Rankine.

I never really visited many places within India, as I thought there was not really much to do here except to visit ancient temples or valleys, which I wasn’t much a fannnnnnnn of. But Rishikesh was unusual. when my mother told me about it“ Oh, another boring old place I thought. But no, was I in for a ride! Exactly the opposite of what I expected, it was one of the most adventurous and exciting places I had ever visited.

The place I was staying at was called Atali Ganga, due to its situation in Atali Dogi, and it being close to the river bank of the Ganges. I busied myself with  white water rafting.  Although it isn’t  much of a deal for many people, getting up at six in the morning and pushing a raft forward twenty kilometers using all my strength, was quite a big one for me, and a fun one too. The most entertaining part of rafting, as anyone who has done it will know, is the rapids  in the river. Just as my fellow raft-mates and I saw one up ahead, we knew we were in for some thrills. Clutching the side of the raft, while swift river rapids are tumbling your raft side-to-side, sometimes even upside-down, is quite an exhilarating experience! Even the people rafting with me were quite cheerful, and made us all laugh, while an old man encouraged me too to do somersaults  off the boat with him.

Although it was for a very short time, and not as thrilling as some would say adventures were, it was one of the best that I have had, and gave me some of my most cherished memories.

Demonetization, fake currency notes and black money. These are the only words we are hearing when eavesdropping. Whether it’s a discussion between small children in school or senior citizens at a park. On 8th of November 2016, Prime Minister Narendra Modi annoRelated imageunced that after midnight Rs.1000 and Rs.500 notes will not be accepted as a legal tender anywhere except in petrol pumps, hospitals and chemists. He also mentioned that people can exchange their money up to Rs. 4000 everyday to elaborate further he said that the withdrawing limit was Rs. 20,000 per week.

This change was desperately needed. This change was made merely for the people having black money. To elucidate further Pakistan was continuously printing fake currency notes and circulating it in the Indian market. This was a strategy of the Pakistani government to destabilize the rich Indian economy. This modification which would sweep out corruption and ring in a cleaner economy was procrastinated by many in the past. This alteration is bringing in difficulty but all of this is for a better tomorrow. Only the people having black money will oppose the government. Narendra Modi has risked his chances of winning the election in the next term.

Narendra Modi has bitten the bullet right now. Though he will have to face a few short term challenges, the bird’s eye view of the future India is clear, clean and corruption free. Our Prime Minister has proved today the lines of Mahatma Gandhi. He said and I quote “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Journey of Computers through Time


The first computer was as large as a 20 x 40 feet room and weighed 30 tons. TodaImage result for computer cliparty computers fit easily on our desks and now we even have portable computers also known as laptops which vary in different sizes.

But the most shocking is the Michigan Micro Mote, which has been deemed the world’s smallest computer an
d can fit seamlessly along the edge of a nickel and its volume is about one millimeter cube!

Although computers have technically been in use since the abacus approximately 5000 years ago, it is modern computers that have had the greatest and most profound effect on society. The first full-sized digital computer in history was developed in 1944. Called the Mark I, this computer was used only for calculations and weighed five tons. Despite its size and limited ability it was the first of many that would start off generations of computer development and growth.


Today is the age of the Fifth Generation of Computers and it is yet to be completely defined, as there are numerous paths that technology is taking toward the future of computer development.

The progress of computers, from one which takes up the space of three rooms to one smaller than a nickel, reflects the progress of not only our scientific knowledge but also our society and hence we learn that a changing society is a progressive society.

सुखद  स्मृति

स्मृतियाँ हमारे जीवन में सबसे बड़ी भूमिका निभाती हैं जो हमें अपने अतीत में फिर से जीने के लिए आग्रह करती हैं।इसी के साथ मैं अपने बचपन की एक सुखद स्मृति बाँटना चाहती हूँ। जब मैं छोटी थी, तब मैं हर रोज़ अपनी नानी के घर अपने छोटे भाkkkkkई के साथ खेलने जाती थी।तब कोई पढ़ाई का बोझ न था। वहाँ हम दोस्तों के साथ खेलते और खूब मस्ती करते। छुट्टियों के दिन देर से सोते और देर से उठते। फिर एक रात हमने फ़ैसला लिया कि हर छुट्टी की रात, हम कुछ नया और मज़ेदार करेंगे। उसके बाद धीरे-धीरे हम बाहर जाने लगे। कभी-कभी हम बाहर से ‘चोको बार’ की  आइस-क्रीम मँगाते या ठंडी हवा का मज़ा उठाकर बग़ीचे में टहलते। इसे हम “नाइट वॉक” बुलाने लगे।एक रात हमारे दोस्त के मामाजी ने हमें उनकी बड़ी गाड़ी में घुमाने के लिए ले गए।हम सब जाने के लिए बहुत उत्साहित थे। हम देर रात को अपने रात के कपड़ो में नीचे उतरकर जल्दी से गाड़ी में बैठ गए।जैसे ही मामाजी ने गाड़ी चलाना शुरू कर दिया
हमने खिड़की के काँचों को नीचे किया और हम ज़ोर ज़ोर से गाना गाने लगे। उसके बाद हम बहुत मज़ाक़ करने लगे और पागलों की तरह अपने नाक से जान बूझकर हँसने लगे।लौटने के बाद हम सीधा घर गए।मैंने कभी पहले इतना मज़ा नहीं किया जितना मैंने उस रात किया।काश मैं फिर से “नाइट वॉक” के लिए जा सकूँ।

Memories change every time we recall them

There is a game that we play known as Chinese Whispers. In this game people take turns whispering a message into the ears of the next person in line. By the time the last person speaks it out loud, the message has changed from the original. It has been altered with each person passing the message.

Our memory is a lot like this game. Whenever we remember an incident from the past, our brain makes a change in ways that can alter the later recall of the event. This means, when you remember this incident for the second time, you might not recall the original incident but what you remember the previous time.

Our memory cannot produce an image of the original incident by time travelling back to the original incident. The image can be somewhat distorted because of the prior times you remember it. You might recall not the original but what you remembered the previous time.

MUSIC:The Magical Therapy

Whether it is the blood-pumping rock, soul-touching blues and country, the catchy rapping, memorable folk and classical music, the dancing that comes only with pop; jazz; hip-hop and electronic music, all these are sure to sooth your soul, touch your heart, and make you come alive.

They say Google knows everything but do we know the origin of music? It probably emerged during the rise of languages-time immemorial. Music gave the slaves in the America and Europe hope as they struggled for survival. When the forces of nature were cruel to the people in the civilization ages they sang to the gods which gave them hope too. Music does follow a rhythmic pattern and the ones who learn how to manipulate an
d control this pattern are the true artists. Not everyone can become a great artist but a great artist can come from anywhere. This has been proven every century when deaf, blind, mute and handicapped people have shown their resilience by mastering instruments and singing and embracing life for not what it is but what it could be.

If music never existed…

Ever thought about what cinema would be without the anticipating and anxious background music?

What would you hum during the pressure of exams? What you would sing with friends and family?

What would you play on your favourite instruments? What would we dance on?

All these questions make it obvious that music is pivotal in our lives and its non-existence would make life indeed very bland and would take away the magic from us. As for me, I find it very hard to end a day without music and the advanced applications of today make it easy to keep up with the latest songs and trends in music.

According to me music does have a genre but it cannot be judged. If it touches your heart and brings out the best in you then it is music. It is not good or bad. With music people can express themselves and their feelings making those even in the most dire straits feel on top of the world.

The Songs Of Music

Music  has its roots through ancient times.

The boundaries of music are not confined to humans but include every aspect of our environment as everything has its own sound and rhythm, one can find music in the movement of leaves, sound  of rain drops, breaking of waves on the shores, chirping of birds, singing of dolphin, etc.

Our mind can be  relaxed with music. Music is the medicine for a tired mind. Mausiki has been the medium to communicate feelings and emotions to one other since ages, which means ‘Where Words Fail, Music Speaks’.  

The mention of lord Krishna conjures an image of a peacock feather on his head and a flute in his hands. HRelated imageis music which would not only enamour people but also cast a spell on animals as well.

Music is the universal language of mankind. A child in his mother’s womb is not familiar with the sounds but clearly responds to music. Plato the Greek author of philosophical dialogues n meta- physics, politics and ethics once said

                        “Music gives a soul to the universe,

                                       Wings to the mind,

                            Flight to the imagination and

                                       Life to everything”

Music Is Hope – Aashayein

Victor Hugo said , “Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent” I would not be lying if I say that music is my best friend. Every song I hear has a different meaning and somehow I can relate to most of the songs I listen to. As soon as I put on my headphones, I am transported to another world all together, a serene world which has only two componRelated imageents, music and me. Being a sportsman, I have faced many problems and failures, but music teaches me how to deal with them and move on.  It also has the ability to unite people, irrespective of their nationality, colour, gender etc. Music can be classified into various genres, like Pop, R&B , Rock, Jazz and so on. Because of the diverse culture in our country, we  listen to different kinds of music like classical music, Qawwalis, Western music, Western –  classical music in India. This  goes on to show that music has so much variety, that it would be impossible to get bored of it..

Nowadays, majority of the songs  in  the Hindi film industry may not be as melodious and meaningful as they were once before.  But there are some which are so melodious that its difficult to stop humming  So I would request you to keep enjoying music and sing –
