Few blackboards are broken and most are about to break. Some of them do not get cleaned properly with dusters. Teachers are continuously complying about the bad quality of black board. Students are also getting poor visibility.
Therefor I request you to generate more funds this time as we can replace all the defected black boards with better ones, in our school.  The good quality of black boards will ensure white future of students.  Our school will be honored to get this help from your NGO.

 What I want to be In My Life
“Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep.” This is the famous quoate of our former President Dr Abdul Kalam azad. I follow his words whole heartedly. The ambition, the dream is that thing that will keep you full of life and keep you motivated to achieve, the things which define an individual.
My dream is to be an IAS officer and serve my country being at a responsible and dignified position. What made me feel to have this dream? The  motive has its own importance in deciding your goal. My motive is not to enjoy the power of the position, or not to enjoy the handsome salary I will be getting after that, definitely these are side factors and yes money that we get is important for survival. I want to serve my country by my administrative skills. The administration at my school societies was the thing I always like.
Apart from motive other factor is Will.  It is true we are living in a competitive world and everyone might not get chance to achieve their dream, then how should one be motivated for his dream? The thing is you should give your 100 percent. If you will give your full effort to your dream, then there are chances that you may succeed ar you may not. But definitely not if you not try.  You should never quit.
In order to achieve your dream you minimum requirements are to follow your intuitions ,your wisdom, your will and  have to develop the quality to not give up.

As being the head of history society of school we made a visit to Nalanda. Nalanda university is one of the most famous ancient universities. It also comes under the UNESCO worlds heritage site.
We started our journey on march 2nd 2017 by arriving at Patna Airport. The 95 km journey of Patna to Nalanda took us 3 hours.  First sight we visited was the ruins of the Nalanda University. This university has a glorified history. Nalanda was visited was prominent personalities like jain and Buddha.  The university was developed during Guptas and flourished. It was famous for its teaching methods. The scholars from  China, Japan, Korela visited Nalanda University to gain knowledge. It is also famous for its architecture.  Now  this great university is left only with its remains which is a very famous heritage site. The nearby Rajgir is also an important site to visit. Once upon a time it was the capital of great ancient Magadh empire.

Dear Friends, respected teachers and honorable Principle Maam’ , on this last day before holi we are here, I will like to deliver a speech on this occasion. Since the colorful festival holi is here for all of you this speech is regarding the festival.

Holi is the festival of colors, the festival of happiness, the festival we play which signifies the victory of purity of mind over impure one. It is the festival of joy that most of you will like to enjoy the fullest with your friends and family members. But definitely there are some who do not like to play with colors, may be due to some allergy or may be some other reasons. They have right to celebrate it or not. And the real spirit or the real moto of celebration of holy is to make ensure that one has choice to follow his faith. It is usually seen people through colors even muds at unknown persons who are not willing to. This is wrong and against the spirit of the festival. I wish all my friends will not participate in this kind of unwanted activities and it will be great if you stop anyone doing so.

So, I will conclude with the word that enjoy the festival fully in true spirit.

Thank you for listing and Happy Holi to all of you.

Human beings are considered as most dominant and civilized living beings present in the planet. The great power brings great responsibility. It is the history of human kind says the one who dominate and dictate society in its own ways and in undemocratic manner to fulfill individual comfort was demolished.

Today human beings is the one who can dominate any other species by his wisdom. But now we have started behaving like irresponsible and uncivilized. Killing dogs in sleep is utter level of cruelty we are keep on showing. The dogs are savior of our houses and society. Yes there are instances that some of them have started misbehaving and biting people around. But killing definitely is not the option.

The dogs are creature who is loyal to whom it love. The can be handled with care and affection. The dogs bite can be cured although it is undesirable but it is avoidable by human beings using proper methods. You can make them believe that we are not going to harm them. In worst case we can scare them and may harm them a bit, but killing is definitely not the way to handle situation.

This needed to be stopped as this is against human civiliastion.
