Speech of greatness – an inspiration for generation

speech

It is one of the greatest virtues to inspire. Leaders, artisans and sportsmen for centuries have continued to inspire through their work, attitude and sheer faith in humanity. Some have fought personal insecurities, some against racial discrimination and some against basic inequalities to emerge as not only as successful human but as an inspirational figure for millions.

Below are five of such individuals’ inspirational speech,  whose work and leadership, have inspired millions across the globe. The list is not conclusive and doesn’t follow any order or merit.

Power of imagination

In J.K. Rowling’s 2008 Harvard commencement speech, the Harry Potter author explored how two phenomena — failure and imagination — can be crucial to success. While failure can help you understand where your true passion lies, and where you should focus your energy moving forward, imagination is what will allow you to empathize with other people so you can use your influence to do good.

“We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.”

Never give up

Steve Job’s 2005 Stanford commencement speech, which has more than 24 million views, plays on two themes: connecting the dots (anecdote: how taking a calligraphy class helped inspire the design of the Mac) and love & loss (anecdote: how getting fired from Apple helped inspire his greatest innovations). Perhaps the most memorable part of his speech comes at the end, when he quotes the (now-famous) lines from the final issue of his favourite publication, The Whole Earth Catalog:

“Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”

Faith in possibilities

In 2004, then-Illinois State Senator Barack Obama took the stage at the Democratic National Convention to deliver the keynote address. Obama reflects on his upbringing and his beating the odds with faith in the possibilities. President Obama instils the message of hope in this 20-minute speech that will leave you feeling humbled and inspired to achieve your potential.

Being Equal

We all know the story of Martin Luther King Jr. So much so that Americans have a day of the year to celebrate him as a national holiday. Most of us have been listening to segments of his famous speech where he told the world about a dream he had. The main message of his famous speech is that racial inequalities need to end and he was absolutely right. However, he also reminds us that there are things that are more important than success such as equal rights and treating each other with respect and kindness.

Awake to life

“Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. At the stroke of midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, then an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance. It is fitting that at this solemn moment we take the pledge of dedication to India and her people and to the still larger cause of humanity.”  This speech from our first PM Jawaharlal Nehru continues to inspire millions of Indian.

There are many more such speeches from other leaders that have motivated all of us. However, one needs to understand that the key is in the message and not the method. If you realise your strength and weakness and work on improving on those, you are bound to succeed.

Overcoming Shyness to Gain Accolades

shyness

Shyness is a characteristic that has prevented many bright minds and talents from being acknowledged. Children are the worst sufferers here because we tend to ignore the signs of shyness among children, not realising that it might turn out to be a severe problem at a later stage.

Although shyness among young children is commonplace, prolongated shyness becomes a matter of concern for parents. Children are sometimes born that way and some become shy due to negative experiences in life. As a result we find them not willing to mix up with other children of their age, facing anxiety on seeing strangers, preferring to stay lonely, and so on.

We shouldn’t ignore signs of shyness among children as this is a crucial stage when their personalities develop. At this stage they inculcate their habits and hobbies, and the shyness factor is a hindrance to all their abilities and talent.

Overcoming shyness is not too difficult. Parents and family members can be the best rescuers here. We must first of all try to study the behavioural pattern of the shy child in different situations and try to create a friendly environment for him/her to feel at ease.  Here are some of the tips that we can follow to help a shy child:

  • Do not call him ‘Shy’. Even if we feel that shying away of the child might come in the way of his social behaviour and acceptability later on, we shouldn’t tag him as a shy fellow. This might act as a catalyst for his shyness.
  • Help him approach a group of peers. We can help the child approach a group of peers (or any other child for that matter), let them introduce one another and offer talking points according to their interests.
  • Build confidence. We should let them know that it’s not a big deal to approach people and tell them that they can do it as good as anybody else.
  • Work on social skills. Give the child a chance whenever possible to practice his social skills. Let the child order his food at the restaurant, invite his friend over to play, so he gets his space to gel with the peers.
  • Express empathy. Tell them that we all go through such situations and feel the same way at times so they need not think it’s their problem alone. But rather, a situation that can be handled with little bit of courage.
  • Appreciate their moves. Whenever we find them trying to overcome their shyness we need to encourage them and appreciate their action.

We must note one thing here that there is something very special about people who are shy. These people are good listeners, observers and thinkers. They are also cautious, empathetic and sensitive, which are some good traits that even many of the extroverts do not possess. All we can do is give a helping hand to such people who are shy, and remember that a little concern can help them be their real selves and win accolades.

Challenging the challenge: How to be a winner

winner

You are a winner if you keep achieving your stretch goals and are happy in your own skin. The secret of winning in life lies in seeing life differently – in its different shades and outcomes. “Life becomes a path that leads to achievements. Winners do not value life as much as what they can do with it. For them life is not a boring journey from the womb to the tomb. It is a journey about crossing milestones and looking forward to new ones.

The best place to start is to change yourself. If whatever you do doesn’t work, you must be flexible – you must change your action plan if the current one does not produce the required results. If you want other people to change, you must be prepared to take the first step yourself. If you cannot change your environment, you should change your attitude.

So, read on and find out what are the easiest tips on how to be a winner every single time!

  1. Make a Plan: The first of many tips on how to be a winner is to always make a plan, no matter what you do. Yet, you must be careful because it’s so, so easy to make a lot of ambitious plans and then so hard sometimes to put them into practice. You must be ambitious, and you should always stick to your plans even if sometimes the alternatives are more attractive and tempting. Think twice and then decide if you must make any changes to your plan.
  2. Think Positive: Another important quality that every winner shares, is their ability to always think positive and to pay attention only to the good aspects in life. You must concentrate on what you can do in order for everything to get better again. Learn to focus only on the positive things and enjoy the results!
  3. You must learn to be a winner: A lot of people don’t know this, but in order to become a winner you need to work really, really hard to pursue your goals in spite of everything that can go wrong.
  4. Make a decision: If you want to live the life of your dreams, it starts with a decision. You have to decide that what you desire to achieve is greater than your desire to stay where you are.
  5. Maintain your mentality: When we think about maintenance, we always think about our homes or vehicles. However, the one thing that we forget to maintenance is the mind. A mind that is neglected is a mind that will remain negative. It isn’t enough to complete the above steps for just a week—it has to be consistent. And to do that, you must consistently analyze your thoughts so you don’t fall back into your bad habits.

 In conclusion, your mind can be your greatest weapon or your greatest war. The time you devote to the development of the mind will determine the extent of victory in your life. Think like a winner, and you’ll live a winning life.

Celebrating an eco-friendly Diwali

eco-friendly-diwali

 

Diyas lit on the moonless Diwali night signifies the end of darkness of ignorance and the beginning of light that enlightens all. Celebrating an Eco – friendly Diwali, the first thing that you need to do is to make yourself aware about the effects the traditional Diwali celebrations has on the Mother Nature.

Festivals are best celebrated with your closed ones around you. So think of getting your relatives, friends and neighbors at one place and having the festivities going on. This will not only reduce the cost of celebration and amount of pollution as compared to individual celebrations, but also bring more excitement, closeness and bonding among everyone.

Instead of the traditional crackers which leaves the city hazy, noisy and littered with paper remains the next morning, opt for eco-friendly products that are made from recycled papers and the noise produced is within the decibel limits set by the Central Pollution Control Board.

No doubt the electric illumination looks stunning, but there is no comparison to the age old diyas. The additional advantage of these diyas are that they are bio-degradable, cost-effective and still look traditional and very beautiful. Plus, you can also contribute in saving on electricity consumption that normally reaches sky high during each Diwali.

Given below are three major environmental impacts that Diwali Festival have on our environment.

  1. Air Pollution through Firecrackers
  2. Excessive Consumerism
  3. High Energy Consumption
  1. Air Pollution through Firecrackers

For most people lighting of firecrackers is the highlight of Diwali. Brighter the sparkles, louder the noise the greater the thrill!! In fact to many of us, these forms of light seem so appropriate and most essential when celebrating the ‘Festival of Lights’. But little do people realize that in our increasingly populated and polluted cities, the temporary joy of watching the firecrackers is soon replaced by the intense air pollution caused by these.

Also the firecrackers used on Diwali are mostly made by very young children. Since the substances being handled are extremely toxic many of these child laborers get sick and die in their early teenage years.

  1. Excessive Consumerism

An indirect but equally significant impact of Diwali on nature is increased consumption. Since Diwali is also a celebration of abundance and wealth – many people believe that it is a good time to buy stuff. Often, people go out and buy new items even when they don’t need them. Advertisements and hoardings scream out to people offerings sales extravaganzas, bargains, discounts encouraging us to buy more and more!

  1. High Energy Consumption

The festival of lights puts a considerably heavy load on electrical energy sources that are already overloaded. The use of electric lights to adorn homes, business establishments, monuments and roads requires a huge amount of electricity. The older tradition of burning oil lamps is a possible alternative to electric lights- even though it does use oil, the duration of the lamps is shorter.

With the growing recognition of the impacts of Diwali on the environment, one should keep in mind the harmful effects of the festival that leaves behind on the environment. This Diwali let us take a pledge to have an eco-friendly and safe Diwali.

A Wonderful Literary Experience

 

img-20161021-wa0005

When I found out that I, along with my fellow schoolmates, have been selected to go to a program titled ‘River Talks 2016’ organised by the ‘Royal Group of Institutions’ and the ‘North East Writers Forum’, I was ecstatic. This three-day event, held from the 20th to the 22nd of October, not only enabled us to step on a platform to showcase our talents, but also gave us a chance to meet legends like Ruskin Bond. Various competitions were held on all three days, but me and my friend, Iffat, participated in ‘Poetry-Out-Loud’, an inter-school recitation competition that took place on the second day.

So, off we went on the morning of the 21st of October, nervous but excited about the day that was to come. When we reached the institution, we were guided to the auditorium, where we had an interactive session with the timeless, Ruskin Bond. And just like his books, he was humorous, witty and ever-so-charming. The highlight of this session was the part when the audience, both children and adults, openly declared their love for him and confessed that his books inspired them to no end. The man certainly was legendary!

The next program that we were lined up for was ‘Poetry-Out-Loud’. So, after grabbing a bite at the cafeteria, we headed for the competition. Looking around at the other participants, we couldn’t help but feel a little nervous. All of our competitors performed wonderfully, and we were feeling a bit overwhelmed by the intensity of it all. Finally, my friend Iffat’s turn came and she was lovely! Though I couldn’t stop my knees from shaking as I knew my turn was soon to follow. Finally, it came. Hiding my nervousness, I walked up to the platform, wished everyone a good afternoon, said the name of the poem I was reciting and the poet who had written it (The Cherry Tree by Ruskin Bond) and started reciting. On reaching the end of the second line of the poem, I paused a little, trying to remember the next line! Thankfully, I quickly recalled it and went on without another hitch! I was devastated though. I thought I had no chance of winning. But the surprise came when the judges announced the results! The first position was bagged by a girl from Army Public School, Narengi and then my name was called out for the second position! I had absolutely not seen this coming! I got a certificate and also a cheque of Rs 1500! That brightened up my whole day and I was very, very happy and thankful to my teachers for selecting me to participate in this program!

Reading beyond textbooks


The textbook has been one of the centerpieces of education. With many child-friendly reforms in place in boards like the CBSE, textbooks are becoming more and more interesting. In addition, they encourage discussion and active learning. Another amazing aspect is that in the future more and more textbooks will become digitalized with more audiovisual inputs which will make learning even more joyful. Earlier, many textbooks were written in a monotonous manner and were very dry. Students used to literally “sleep” through many textbooks like the History, Geography textbooks. In addition to that, it is very important to encourage students to read and learn beyond the textbook. This will prepare them well to have a comprehensive knowledge about different topics. When students read and learn beyond the textbook, learning becomes even more interesting. Students will develop a greater understanding and appreciation of topics when they learn and read beyond the textbook. They will also have a much more comprehensive knowledge about topics.

It’s not enough to have good classrooms, mid-day meals or even qualified teachers, to improve learning among children. Schools and governments should focus on teacher accountability. To start with, teachers can encourage observation based on the lessons in the textbooks. Then small assignments, which involve at least week-long observations, can be included like observing clouds, flowering of plants, ant colonies, beehives, kinds of vehicles on the road, road signs on the way to school, spices in the food and so on. There should be space for sharing the observations made. The students can be asked to present their observation in the form of drawing, writing, or through charts. The teacher will have to budget time for such activities in his/her lesson plans. Science exhibitions or fairs, which involve observation, survey, etc., should be encouraged. Such studies always kindle curiosity and questioning. The students can also present their small observation studies in the school assembly or on the notice boards. Other forums for presentation like the school website, writing a small article for the local newspaper about their study, creating a school newsletter with the children’s work can also be explored. Recognition of students’ work motivates them and in turn helps build their confidence.

Parents are child’s first and most important teacher. When parents and families are involved in their children’s schools, the children do better and have better feelings about going to school. In fact, many studies show that what the family does is more important to a child’s school success than how much money the family makes or how much education the parents have. There are many ways that parents can support their children’s to read beyond textbooks and throughout the school year.

Let your child know that you think reading beyond textbooks is important and that needs to be done each day. You can help your child by setting aside a special place to study, establishing a regular time for your child, and removing distractions. Parental Guidance is the most important thing to help a student learn beyond textbooks.

In Axel public school, teachers makes every possible moves to help the students by encouraging them to read beyond textbooks as well as to learn beyond textbooks. Each and every teacher develops a greater understanding between them and the students to help them grow and explore knowledge beyond textbooks.

Being there for your child

btfyc

Parents have expectations from their children, expectations which translate into a desire to see their children achieve the best. But it so sometimes happens that a child is not able to fulfill what his/her parents want them to achieve. In such a situation, it becomes commonplace for parents to either blame themselves or put too much pressure on their child which makes it difficult for them to cope with.

That is why, no matter the goodwill at heart, it is necessary for parents to realize and accept that they need to give time and proper guidance to their children so they can flourish in any field of their desire/passion/interest. Instead of alienating your child because of your expectations, here are a few tips that you can follow to help your child achieve their best.

Tap the potential

More often than not it has been noticed that almost all children have a load of emotional intelligence and creativity within them. Ivy League colleges are not the only marker of achievement of a student, it is the overall learning and growing process that counts. As a parent try and spend more time with your child, take interests in their hobbies and teach them to pursue their passion. So what is your child is not good with the calculator? Maybe s/he will grow up to be the next Zubin Mehta.

Private tutoring

Rather than business minded coaching centres, it is suggested that those parents who can afford, should hire a private tutor for their child. Every child learn but at a different pace. It is to keep up with the different pace that the tutor comes to help. When not surrounded by too many students, the child may show more confidence and confide his difficulties to the tutor. The tutor will help them achieve the required academic goals and in turn give a moral boost when they start performing well.

Stop Comparing

Many parents believe that comparing the performance of your child with that of others will encourage them to better. But in reality from the point of view of the student, it seems downright condescending, it makes them believe that they are not and will never be good enough. So instead of comparing, try focusing your energy and attention on the areas where they can do better

E-Learning

Monitoring the internet activities, you can encourage your child to take up e-learning. This will help them learn at their own pace and rewind the parts which they do not understand. E-learning will also expand their knowledge which might not necessarily reflect in exam scores but will surely come helpful later. Moreover be a part of your child’s e-learning activities. This will help you to clarify certain concepts and help your child study.

 

Don’t force your ambition on your child. Just because you are parent and wish the best for your child, does not necessarily make you the best judge of what is good for them. This is the time where you do not clip their wings, rather you let them explore and as a parent all you can do is stand by them and help them get up when they fall.

Excelling at Being Good

excel

Being a student is certainly a tedious job. Apart from living up to the expectations that you have set up for yourself, you also have to deal with the expectations that your parents and teachers have from you. This sometimes puts unnecessary pressure on the students wherein they feel extremely incompetent. Now-a-days being good is not enough, a student has to be excellent.

But there is no need panic in this competitive world. All that is needed to retain your sanity is that you maintain a proper balance in your lifestyle so that life does not bring you down and you can excel at being good, as a person and as a member of the society.

Churning out the good

  • Academic performancemaintaining a proper academic performance is extremely important. It goes in tandem with your creative skills and sets you in the right path for your career goals. Academic performance is not just measured by marks in schools now-a-days. It also depends on the kind of behavior you portray in the classroom. Pay attention to whatever is being taught, do not hesitate to show your inquisitiveness by asking questions. It will help you not just score good marks during exams but also expand your knowledge. In fact it is also advisable to read as many related books as possible to the topic concerned.
  • Managing time-balancing time between studies and other activities of interest is extremely important. It ensures that you do not end up having a one track mind and not get bored easily. Try and explore different activities and take up the one that suits you. For all you know what you consider to be a happy might turn into a passion someday and will reap a number of benefits than you can possibly imagine. However it is suggested that you take proper note of how much time is spent on each of the tasks so that no important work is left behind.
  • Introspection-whenever possible, take some time off for yourself. In this introspection period, review whatever you are doing with your life. Remember that this is your life and you have to become its coach as well as athlete. You have to take responsibility for yourself but do not hesitate to make mistakes. Each moment provides you with an opportunity to learn something which you can use fruitfully in your life.

In Axel Public School, learning and being humane go hand in hand. No one is put under any sort of unnecessary pressure. Enough space is given to everyone to explore themselves and their interests. At the same time rigorous attention is paid to the students so that they succeed academically as well. A combination of excellence and humility makes the students of Axel Public School stand out.

Learning never stops: The teacher-student relation

tchrstdnt

A teacher-student relationship involves not just reciting off from paragraphs but also a balance of trust and respect. Although in traditional classroom settings it is believed that it is only the teacher who has the most knowledge, in reality, teaching and learning go hand in hand.

It is a given that a student learns from a teacher. But what we fail to acknowledge is that learning is a mutual process, it involves give and take. A teacher cannot be a good educator if they are not willing to take in information from someone who is younger to them just by the virtue of being the teacher.

Refined Interactions

Students’ insights help teachers make their practice more deep and refined. Unplanned interactions, close observations and activities structured in and around student engagement helps teachers comprehend their own learning. Interactions of this sort helps a teacher find out their own shortcomings. This kind of reflection regarding one’s teaching methods sometimes leads to strategic changes in classrooms. In fact teachers can conduct sessions wherein they ask students to place themselves in the shoes of the teacher and introduce whatever changes they think are necessary to the class. This in turn helps students realize any sort of hidden leadership potential.

Knowledge Sharing

It may sometimes so happen that being pre-occupied with the classroom content and adhering to strict rules, a teacher has lost touch with the current affairs. More often than not in such cases, through interacting with the students, a teacher is kept updated about the relevant happenings in the world. Moreover, this helps a teacher have a glimpse at their students’ perspective regarding the domestic and global issues.

Molding a student

Teaching a number of students helps a teacher come to the conclusion that not everyone learns in the same way. Finding out ways to make the students understand leads to the realization that every student has potential. The only difference is that molding them requires different amount of time. When a teacher puts in all their effort to help reach a student great heights, it at the same time helps the teacher realize their own perseverance limit. The effort put in by the teacher also inspires the students to give their best shot, so that they can stand up to the faith bestowed on them by the teacher.

Self-aware citizens

One of the biggest responsibility and duties of a teacher is to love all their students equally. But in most cases this becomes difficult as each student behaves in their own particular manner. Being a teacher surrounded with students with so many traits, one learns to love even the worst of them. At the same time teachers consider it necessary to teach the students to self-direct, to become literate learners who can contribute towards meaningfully towards the society.

A mutual relationship is what fosters the education in Axel Public School. Everyone is a student as well as a teacher here. The school runs on the belief of the learning process and progress, that everyone has the knack to impart and take in knowledge. A teacher as an adult in our classrooms is certainly a critical component, yet what makes them stand out is that they look after the students’ emotional and social development as well as their own. Our teachers strive and students strive continuously to become productive citizens of the society.

Helpful Internet: The Advantages of E-learning

e-learning

With competition being stiff in every sector, there is a need for continuity in learning. Live classroom based learning with limited inputs of knowledge has become too cumbersome, especially in the era of globalization where new information is being expounded every day. Students today are growing up with using the mouse/tab and can be found glued to the monitor screens.  They consume the content from the internet on their screens, not passively but rather as interactive users. Devices like Smartphones, tablets, laptops and computers have become an attached arm for the students.

E-Learning and its benefits

In a scenario of wide outreach of the internet, combining internet and education is not necessarily a red herring. In a layman’s term, e-learning uses a range of information technology in schools and homes to impart education to students as well as teachers across different physical locations. This e-learning is an attempt to actively engage the students and broaden their knowledge base and has led to learners accruing a number of benefits.

Personalised Learning-a significant advantage of e-learning is that the learning can be suited to the students’ needs. E-learning allows the students to learn at their own pace. Moreover, compared to traditional learning patterns, e-learning reduces the learning time as it does not take much time to start and wrap up a session with learners having access to the same content even while sitting miles apart.

Interactive Learning-a major drawback of traditional learning is passivity. When content gets consumed virtually i.e. through video or frontal instruction, the retention capacity is less. However, e-learning provides with the opportunity to incorporate various forms of teaching and learning which engages the students actively. Students also do not have to face the problem of different teachers teaching the same matter in various methods. There is a uniform method of teaching which captivates the learners and help them retain knowledge. This dissemination of information takes place not just within a traditional classroom but also from Smartphones and tablets even on the go.

Learning through Engagement-Since e-learning makes use of information technology, it helps stimulate real world experiences by using virtual tools like multi-player stimulations and role play. Confidence is increased when real life situations can be practiced in a secure setting. Whenever a student finds it difficult to retain certain information, there is always the possibility of going back and replaying the instruction for a better grasp, even in the comfort of the bedrooms.

E-learning is the move forward towards a more glocal based education. It provides the opportunity to increase one’s learning base. It helps students keep track of advancements in different sectors and apply that knowledge on their answer sheets as well as in real life. With almost every household having access to a computer and internet connectivity, students can learn while sitting in the comfort of their homes. This pervasiveness of e-learning is what makes this kind of technology based education a lamp in the dark for many learners who are sitting miles away and yet willing to increase their knowledge base. Given the myriad of materials available on the internet, it is however, advisable for the teachers and parents to keep a tab on the kind of content being accessed by the students.
