My First Day at School

My first day at school was an experience I will never forget. It was filled with both excitement and anxiety as I tried to make new friends and get used to my new surroundings. As I look back on that first day, I can reflect on the things I learned and the emotions I felt that day.

Reflecting back on my first day of Grade VI, I’m reminded of the many different emotions I felt – excitement, anxiety, and a bit of nervousness. Stepping into the new school felt like a completely different world with so many new faces, yet I was determined to make this day a success. As I entered the classroom and was welcomed by my teacher, I immediately felt more comfortable in my new environment. I was ready to begin this new journey in my academic career; the first day of Grade VI had come, and I couldn’t wait for what was to come.

 I was excited to learn new things, explore the school and get to know my classmates and teachers. As the days passed by, I started making wonderful memories with everyone around me. By the end of the first week, I had already established good relationships with my teachers and made some good friends in the process. It was great beginning to a wonderful experience!

 Everyone seemed so excited for the school year ahead and I was ready to take on all the new challenges and learn as much as possible. This feeling of camaraderie and support set the tone for the rest of the year. By the end of the day, I felt like part of a family and knew that this would be an incredible journey!

Through conversations with my peers, I gained invaluable insight on how to be successful this year – setting goals and staying organized were two pieces of advice that resonated with me most!

My Favourite Sport- Cricket

Cricket is my favorite sport. I love to play it whenever possible with my friends. I am a member of my school’s cricket team and I feel very proud of it. I am a batsman and a good fielder, but I can’t bowl well.

Cricket is a sport with an interesting history, rich culture and unique rules. The unique rules of cricket like the lbw and third-man, make game interesting and challenging. It’s like a mental battle between the bowler and batsman.

Cricket is a sport that promotes social interaction. You can join a cricket club, or even organize your own matches with your friends. It brings people closer together and strengthens bonds. I have found that playing cricket is a great way to make friends and make memories to cherish when we grow older.

Cricket taught me the sportive spirit. I learnt to focus on the situation at hand and stopped to worry about things which are not under my control. It taught me to hold a tight nerve when the situation demands. If at all I lose the battle, I started to admit and the admire the fact that my opponent player is better player than me and I must defeat him the next time in the game.

Cricket taught me the values like punctuality, respect for the game, respecting other game players, always trying to improve the game and never considering a situation to be hopeless. It has also taught me the importance of working hard and never giving up even if the odds are stacked against me.I have also learnt that in order to be successful in cricket, I need to have a strong mental attitude and a never say die attitude.

To me, cricket is more than just a sport; it is a way of life.

In line with the clarion call given by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, to phase out single use plastic items by 2022, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India notified the Plastic Waste Management Amendment Rules, 2021, on 12 August 2021. Carrying forward the spirit of ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsava’, a defining step to curb pollution caused by littered and unmanaged plastic waste is being taken by the country. India will ban manufacture, import, stocking, distribution, sale and use of identified single use plastic items, which have low utility and high littering potential, all across the country from July 1, 2022.

The adverse impacts of littered single use plastic items plastic on both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, including in marine environment are globally recognized. Addressing pollution due to single use plastic items has become an important environmental challenge confronting all countries.

In the 4th United Nations Environment Assembly held in 2019, India had piloted a resolution on addressing single-use plastic products pollution, recognizing the urgent need for the global community to focus on this very important issue. The adoption of this resolution at UNEA 4 was a significant step. In the recently concluded 5th session of United Nations Environment Assembly in March 2022, India engaged constructively with all member states to develop consensus on the resolution for driving global action on plastic pollution.

The Government has been taking measures for awareness generation towards elimination of single use plastics The awareness campaign has brought together entrepreneurs and startups, industry, Central, State and Local Governments, regulatory bodies, experts, citizens organizations, R& D and academic institutions.

The success of the ban will only be possible through effective engagement and concerted actions by all stakeholders and enthusiastic public participation, believes the Ministry.

Due to increasing plastic pollution, India was one of the first countries to introduce a nationwide ban on single-use plastics from 2019. This regulation was further extended up to 2022 including a ban on carry-bags, disposables, wrappers and packaging. This step was taken to reduce plastic waste from the environment and to promote plastic-free India.


Plastic waste is a global road block in the path of achieving a healthy environment. It is not only harmful to the environment but also poses various health risks. Plastic, if not discarded or recycled properly, can remain in the environment forever. Plastic is non-biodegradable and it can take hundreds of years to decompose, further leading to toxic residue that can contaminate soil, air and water. It affects living organisms, damages wildlife habitats, destroys ecosystems and can contribute to global warming.

We must all pledge to avoid plastic and follow the principle of RRR. Reduce-Reuse-Recycle. If we all are committed for the cause of our future generations, this task would be easier and we can eliminate the menace of plastic.


Global warming has become one of the most pressing environmental issues of our time, with the average global temperature rising 1.1°C since the pre-industrial era and the polar ice caps melting at an alarming rate. There are many causes of global warming, including human activities, such as burning fossil fuels, deforestation and industrial production, as well as natural atmospheric processes.

The consequences of global warming can be felt around the globe, with wildlife and marine ecosystems being particularly affected. As temperatures rise, ocean levels also increase, leading to coastal erosion. Many of the islands are already sinking and many more will be sinking in the coming days.

Furthermore, extreme weather events such as floods, hurricanes and heat waves are becoming more frequent, leading to destruction of property and displacement of people.

We are already living with the consequences of global warming and if we want to protect our planet and our future, we must start tackling this problem urgently. We must reduce our consumption of fossil fuels, improve energy efficiency, and switch to renewable energy sources like wind and solar. We must also take measures to protect our coastal areas, plant more trees for carbon sequestration, and invest in climate-rescue activities.

Proper and prudent steps taken now to reduce global warming would not only save humans but also the vibrant flora and fauna on the planet. Planting trees, reducing wastage, proper disposal of industrial gases would help in reducing the temperatures. Many more cold countries are now coming under the category of hot climatic zones.

My favorite hobby is photography. I have always been interested in capturing the beauty of life through a lens, ever since my high school photography class. I love to go out and explore with my camera, never knowing what I will find and capture. Whether I’m in my own backyard or overseas, I take my camera with me and lose myself in my surroundings.

I am a self-taught photographer, and photography has truly become a passion of mine. Learning new ways to capture light, the settings of my camera to get the perfect picture. I love to add creativity by following different light and shade techniques and using different lenses. My passion for photography started when I first caught few images of my mother in our mobile phone. Then onwards, it has been fascinating me.

Photography is a great way to capture happy occasions, turn the mundane into something extraordinary and preserve moments for posterity. There’s also something beautiful about the combination of art and science that you need to take a good photograph. It’s all about angles, lighting, and reflection.

My hobby of photography not only makes me happy but is also a way of learning more about the world around me. I’m constantly learning new technique and understanding the importance of details which helps me to capture life’s most precious moments. Looking at the news papers and magazines I learnt that ‘a picture speaks thousands of words.’ We can portray many emotions through photography.

I treasure each moment I capture and the joy of watching these moments on the screen never fades. I feel that I can convey the emotions and passion I felt while clicking a photograph through my images. It also allows me to expand my skills in understanding the importance of composition, light and shade.

My favourite animal has to be the humble cow. Yes, I do realise that cows are probably not considered to be the most interesting of animals but I just can’t help but love them.

As far as animals go, cows are really gentle giants. They don’t seem to show any fear of humans, even though they can be very large creatures, and they always seem to enjoy the company of their herd. Cows demonstrate a real inquisitive nature, often coming up to investigate new things, such as lawns, plants etc. They are friendly to humans and give delicious and nutritious milk to humans.

The cow is such a majestic creature, with its big brown eyes, long thick eyelashes and its loveable nature.

I absolutely love cows – I have a few cows of my own, so I can attest to how truly wonderful they are.

Cows have been my favourite animals since I was a child. I have always liked their large size, goofy behaviour and intelligence. They are very affectionate, too – they often come up to people to be scratched and petted. Cows are also good companions and are often seen as a symbol of luck and fertility.

When I’m out and about, I always make sure to stop at any cow. Hindus treat cows as goddess.
