School : A Pious Place
All schools are beautiful pious places, Where one can earn ample knowledge,
My son is moulding his future successfully,
By acquiring in his school beautiful knowledge,
Talents are always God’s gift to a child,
But family or school may make him social or wild.
It is my pride that after a long try, I became successful
To find my requirement at ”Blue Bells Public School

QUIT SMOKING AND LIVE HAPPILY
There was a man named Amit. He was staying happily with his sweet family that comprised of his parents, wife Lalita and her lovely daughter Pinky who was just 7 years old. Amit was a police officer. He was a hard working man and was very much loyal to his work and family. He used to take full care of his family; his daughter Pinky was his life. Everything was going on fine, but one fine day Amit met one of his old classmates who was not a good man. He started meeting his friend frequently and because of his bad company Amit developed the bad habit of smoking.
Initially, he was doing it occasionally but then he became used to it and started smoking regularly. Amit could be seen smoking everywhere- at workplace, in the market, at home. He was repeatedly asked by his dear wife, daughter and parents not to smoke, but he couldn’t stop doing so. He made a number of promises to all, but every time he failed in keeping his promises. And then the biggest nightmare hit the family as one fine night Amit’s lovely daughter Pinky was rushed to the nearby hospital. She was coughing badly and was getting breathless. All the family members were scared. The doctors, on examining Pinky, told Amit that it was due to inhaling excessive smoke that Pinky had got her lungs choked and infected. The doctor asked Amit that who in the family smoked so much that it had been responsible for making the little girl sick. On hearing this, Amit got trembled, and started crying very loudly as he knew that his daughter was lying in the hospital because of his bad habit of smoking. He felt very guilty and at this point of time, Amit went upto her daughter and very truly promised her not to smoke again.
Pinky recovered back in a few days and Amit also stopped smoking. All his family members especially Amit himself was very happy now. They continued to live very happily again.

SOLIPSISM AND THE TRUTH OF REALITY
‘Solipsism is the philosophical idea that only one’s mind surely exists’
How do we know that the world truly exists? Solipsism is the idea that the world, as we know, it, only exists in our mind, that is, our mind is the only material object to exist and the rest is all imagination. People perceive the world through vision, sound, taste, feel and smell. But why is it then that the perception of the world for every individual is unique? Some people can eat terribly spicy chillies while some people can’t manage to eat even a single one without having to drink a bottle of water after.
Sometimes, in their waking hours, people actually experience the events that they dreamt about while sleeping. Maybe this is a coincidence. But these future predicting dreams occur to some people quite often. Is it possible that the mind knows what it wants, therefore, wants to relieve these experiences again and again??
A leading website of philosophy argues, ‘the idea of solipsism has problem. where do the experiences come from the self, generated through imagination and then the self makes the conscious self ‘believe’ these imagined experiences, why did it create reality?’’
Solipsism is probably false. But is then reality false as well?
Since we don’t know who/what created the universe, does this necessarily imply that reality doesn’t exist? Well, reality is not common for everyone. The world is different for everybody. Some people find paintings beautiful while others can’t begin to understand their beauty. Some have a love for music. Why does no one see a beauty in all? It is maybe because the world doesn’t exist like we think it does. What we perceive is probably a small fragment of what the world really is.
So, now the question is: Who/what should one believe?

Sportsmanship does not mean only taking part in sports and playing the game in conformity with the rules prescribed, but also playing the game of life in the spirit imbibed on the playing fields.
A true sportsman is he who observes all those rules in life which he has been taught to observe in games. One who has achieved skill or proficiency in games but does not learn to apply the principles of sports to life in general does not deserve to be called a sportsman.
On the contrary, a man who gives evidence of possessing a sporting spirit in games is still a sportsman. Usually those who play games develop into true sportsmen because their character is molded by the training they are given on the field.
It implies fair play. Just in games if any player plays foul, the side to which he belongs is penalized; similarly in the bigger game of life one must always be fair in one’s dealings with others.
Fairness, honesty, integrity, openness of heart and frankness -these are the qualities that a sportsman must display in life. One should not practice deception, should not bluff, should not cheat others and should indulge in diplomacy or humility. A sportsman never takes undue advantage of the weakness of his adversary nor does he hit below the belt.
The art implies obedience to the leader. In games the players have to obey their captain and yield to him on points on which they are in disagreement with him. They must repose the fullest confidence in him. In life too, a sportsman yields to his superior even if he does not agree with him. Respect for discipline is an essential part of sportsmanship.
Team spirit is another important element of sportsmanship. In games the various players must cooperate with one another if they wish to win a match. Without mutual co-operation success is impossible. Similarly in whatever sphere of life one may be, one must aid and be aided by one’s friends if one is a true sportsman.
Sportsmanship consists in working in full harmony with others. In cooperation indeed lies strength. Wherever a common aim binds a number of people together, they must display their sportsmanship by working harmoniously, without friction or mutual jealousy.
Finally, the spirit of sportsmanship demands cheerfulness even in the face of a defeat. When two players play a tennis match, the loser does not cherish any grudge against the winner. In fact the loser congratulates his opponent on his success and shakes hands with him.
Fair play, respect for discipline, recognition of the need for teamwork and cheerfulness even in the event of defeat are thus the dominant marks of a sportsman. Sportsmanship is worthy of admiration
