Fit to Success

“One of the best moments in life is to realize that two weeks ago your body could not do what you just did.” Believe me, this single thought widens my face with a smile of excitement and I swear I am not talking in reference to my physical fitness only. People do not become successful just by accident and this is applicable in all walks of life. Here, we are talking about the journey of professional success on the track of fitness. Here is the story of two best friends. Priyanka and Kanika were best friends from junior school. Thick as thieves, they did everything together right from being bench mates to studying together for their exams, to even going for picnics and sharing notes about their crushes. The difference between the two though was that Priyanka had a sweet tooth while eventually Kanika grew out of it. As the years rolled by main roles in dramas were given to Kanika, and she still had more of the fan following, much after the two passed out from school and college. Priyanka h…

Botanical gardens, in the modern sense, developed from Physic Gardenwhose main purpose was to cultivate herbs for medical use as well as research and experimentation. Such gardens have a long history. In Europe, for example, Aristotle (384 BCE – 322 BCE), the “Father of Biology” is said to have had a physic garden in the Lyceum at Athens, which was used for educational purposes and for the study of botany, and this was inherited, or possibly set up, by his pupil Theophrastus, the "Father of Botany" Botanical gardens are still being built, such as the first botanical garden in Oman, which will be one of the largest gardens in the world. Once completed, it will house the first large-scale cloud forest in a huge glasshouse.
In India we have several Botanical Gardens, in which many medicinal plants are conserved. Our school G. D. Goenka, Greater Noida had organized a field excursion of Botanical G…

Hard work leads to success

The harder you fall, the heavier you heart; the heavier your heart, the stronger you climb; the stronger you climb, the higher your pedestal.” It’s rightly said by someone that, “If we try and lose then it isn’t our fault. But if don’t try and we lose, then it’s our entire fault.” The price of success is hard work, dedication to job, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand. Success is something that we all want to achieve in our lives. The type of success aspired to, can vary greatly person to person. Because every type of success is very different too, but everyone’s route has one thing in common- “HARD WORK”. Today’s world is a competitive world. Everyone wants to be famous and wants success in life. There is a well-known proverb “No pain, No gain” hard work never goes wasted. Although it may be later or sooner success comes to your feet. It’s said that, “The difference between ‘Ordinary’ and ‘Extra ordinary’ is a l…

Why fear tears the interest for Math

Learning Mathematics is like learning new language. It is a discipline that requires effort, regular practice, training and memory. The psychology of a fear of math starts at very early age, mathematics depends upon cumulative knowledge in which each chapter must be understood and mastered in order to proceed to the next.
Mathematics is Abstract: Mathematics is said to be abstract because it does not have a shape. Children cannot see it. They need to visualize the problem. Visualization comes from every day practice of problems in math’s.
Present Teaching System: Another major contributor to the difficulty of mathematics is lack of innovation in conventional system of teaching makes mathematics Students are unable to visualize the concept taught by the teacher. Therefore, their interest level goes down. Hence, they start disliking the subject. If this disliking continues for a longer period of time, then disliking converts into hatred for the subject.

Conquer yourself

Our greatest glory is not, in never falling but in rising every time we fall.                                                                                                                 --Confucious
Everyone has limits. But we never know our limits until, our skills have been put to test. Never say,” This is all I can do,” unless you have tried to do it. Do you know that humans use only 10% of their brain while there is much more you can do. You have the resources. You just need to find it and the first place to look is within yourself. Our skills double when we face danger. Then we see, smell, hear and move faster. It shows that we are capable of acting and doing much more than we think. We are just too afraid at times. But what are we afraid of? Are we afraid, we may actually find our true strengths? Or is it, we just need to be pushed to find our new potential. “What is the most universal human character: fear or laziness?” Some of us aren’t afraid. We just aren’t bothered. “So wh…

CREATIVE TEACHING: A NEED OF THE HOUR

Learning does not confine to mere school- prescribed curriculum and a routine syllabus. It actually needs more than that. In fact the curriculum is no longer bounded into the four walls of classroom; rather it has expanded its parameters. In older times the teachers simply teaches and give notes and things becomes easy for students as well as for the teacher. But now the time has changed a lot, it’s not easy to engage our children in teaching they need something extra, they wanted things in some or the other way in twisted manner or I should say they actually want change in the form of creative learning. Here's an experiment we can conduct in many schools. Look through the door of one classroom and you might see the students hunched over, not engaged, even frowning. The teacher looks frazzled, tired and wishing he or she was somewhere else. You might think, "Well, everyone has a bad day." But you might witness this scenario in this teacher's classroom no matter what d…
