I’m Kshitij Anand, alma mater of Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, pursued Science Stream for my higher secondary education. With the blessings of my affectionate elders, supporting teachers, mentors, and my extreme hard work, I have been able to secure the National Rank 3 (overall) and the National Rank 1 in Science Stream in CBSE Class 12th Board Examinations 2018.
I also cleared various competitive examinations like NTSE (2016), RMO (2017), KVPY Scholar (2018), NSE (2018), INAO (2018) and attended the training camp at Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education, Tata Institute for Fundamental Research, Mumbai in May’18. I’m grateful to my school and teachers, who always motivated me and worked decisively towards extracting out the maximum potential from me and my friends, helping us perform constructively.
At Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, the best thing is that the traditional concepts and approaches of rote learning are not promoted at all, not even in the most preliminary exams such as unitary tests. The student learns the concepts from the basic level and develops a logical method of approaching problems with the help of books prescribed by CBSE as well as other supplementary books. The teachers at Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, always explain to the students, in a comprehensive manner, how to focus on precisely putting up points and facts appropriately in an answer helping us score more. The curriculum followed at the Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, is inexplicably vibrant and exemplary. It not only focuses on academics but also exposes the student to a diaspora of sundry cultural and technological activities. Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, is the one of the rarest schools in the nation to house the Atal Tinkering Lab, and just one visit to this lab will give you the best vibes of what a modern classroom should possess. The inculcation of discipline and efforts put in by teachers in view of personality development is very commendable and needs no sort of explanation, the success of the school speaks well of it.
The students of Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, Vasundhara, Ghaziabad had an insightful talk with the school alumni, Captain Shalini Singh who is a proud Indian Army Veteran, inspirational speaker and reigning Mrs India Classic, Queen of Substance. Capt Shalini in her talk emphasized on the fact that it is your mind that has to change, and not the situations. With the change in your mindsets and thought processes you can achieve anything the way you want. You are the in charge of your life, no one else is. Students were extremely motivated towards the actuality that it is we, ourselves who are responsible for whatever happening in our lives. Adapting positivity leads to positive occurrences in your life and vice versa. Focus is the key element to achieve anything and one must be clear about his/ her visions or goals. You will always be surrounded with multiple distractions, but it is your focus that makes you adhere to your desired path. Captain Shalini put light on the importance of shaping one’s destiny. One must not give up, ever! You are never to be bothered about others; you are here to judge your own capabilities. She concluded her session saying, “Believe in yourself” and “Give up on giving up”.
The Principal cum Director, Mrs Manju Rana, thanked her for her inspiring words and for being there to guide the young Jaipurians for their lives. The students of class XII were truly enthused to hear her and were certain to abide by what all they took away with them through the session.
Heartiest congratulations to all the proud Indians for the glorious return of our Independence Day. As the nation is basking in the revelry of 72nd Independence Day commemoration, our heads our held high with dignity and pride, with the saga of achievements recounted aloud not only by our country but also the whole world today.
Our country which has been a witness to the savagery, a victim of pillage , a dupe of denigration, soft target of humiliation under hundred years of colonialism, has displayed immense resilience and tenacity In not only restoring what was lost but also creating an invincible and robust position for itself in the global scenario. But to do so was not a piece of cake. A lot of strategic planning, industriousness, resolution, single-mindedness and passion went into it before the results could be heaped. This leaves us with no doubts about our potential to reach new heights in the sky of progress.
The freedom which we attained is completely secured in the hands of our Indian soldiers. We are sure that any threat to our freedom from any foreign element will be dealt with unsparingly. Sadly, it is not the external threat that concerns us today, rather the trivialization of our much treasured freedom at the hands of a few self-centered traitors, which has posed a serious peril to our country. The fact that the social and gender discrimination, corruption, greed for power and its misuse, unabashed demolishment of women’s dignity, onslaught on rights of people, still mar the visage of our free country compels us to deliberate on the question if we are still free. Not only this, despite scaling the ladder of technological progress, a large segment of our society is still ensnared in the web of religious and political orthodoxy.
Everyone doesn’t have to be a soldier standing at the borders to combat the enemies of our freedom. If we all become warriors guarding the precincts of our mind and heart from the influence of unpatriotic conduct and are unyielding in our refusal of putting our interest first than the nation , who in the world can stare maliciously at our freedom?
Blessed is a person who can breathe in free air. Let’s not take our freedom for granted. Let’s not become slaves at the hand of our self-created egocentricity. Let’s stand and unite to preserve and uphold the freedom of our nation.
