When my sister was in the seventh grade, she did a project on Marie Curie. So naturally, I decided that I must do one as well. Her poster board was filled with precise, thought out, well-researched paragraphs loaded with structured sentences and incredible vocabulary. That, of course, was not impressive or even vaguely interesting to me. What really caught my attention was how on earth my sister had spent hours making such a tedious project.
A 7th grader had the chance to do a project on anyone who inspired her, and she picked a French-Polish physicist and chemist. So as she watched me while I redid my project to resemble hers, annoyed but used to it, I just had to ask:
"Akka, you could have written whatever you wanted on here, why did you choose Madame Curie, and why did you make her sound so boring?'
She gave me three reasons.

CHIREC celebrated independence day in a grand and eye-catching manner that paid a beautiful homage to the sacrifices our forefathers had made.
The event started with Mrs Sanchita Raha, the Principle of the International Section, addressing the audience, where she talked about the chief guest, Miss Sailaja Kiran, the Managing Director of Margadarsi Chit Fund, and her achievements. Right after this, the chief guest came forward to hoist the flag, which was followed by a mesmerising march past from the students of 6th, 7th and 8th grade. Vindhyas (Red House) won the march past due to their incredible synchrony and teamwork, they took home the house cup as well.
Millions and thousands in the glory rise,
Absorbed into independence’s strides,
Now rid of the colonists and their eternal torment,
A nation united, not a single dent,
The bloodshed will fill their pride,
Days and nights of drudgery,
The saints and the radicals alike,
Thank the Father’s strikes,
A nation united by its taxing might,
a feather in cap,
They celebrate their immeasurable liberty,
And in their free rein,
They at last indulge and gain,
Of all the things an Indian has to take pride in, be it our diverse culture or our multitalented compatriots, our army men never fail to break glass ceilings and make our hearts swell with pride
The tales of their bravery always inspire us all and instil in each one of us a sense of patriotism and unity. One such tale of an Indian brave-heart is that of Brigadier Usman, a fierce fighter who played a crucial role in the Indo-Pakistan war of 1947-48.
Friendship day is normally celebrated with children excitedly exchanging colourful bands or going out with their friends. But we can leave it to the Interact Club of the CBSE section put a spin on this classic occasion. The 10th-grade members of the club decided to make some unusual friendships.
The first group of members visited the Om Sai Senashrama Old Age Home. They distributed friendship day cards, made by the students of the primary section, along with roses. Over a round of refreshments, the members provided, a conversation about the good old days stirred up.
For our inaugural edition, we only find it fit that the languages we learn, that hold a dear place in our heart are also represented. As you read further you will understand the importance of the languages taught to us at school. Happy Reading!
తెలుగు భాష అజంత భాష. అంటే ప్రతిపదం అచ్చుతో ముగుస్తుంది. అందుకే దీనిని ఇటాలియన్ ఆఫ్ ది ఈస్ట్ అని పిలిచారు. భారతదేశంలోని ప్రాచీన భాషలలో ఒకటిగా పేరుగాంచింది తెలుగు.

When the very first rays of sun fall, Merging into ribbons of red, gold and yellow, They pass by, over the gentle water, Slowly but surely, guiding the wave’s halo.The children all break out in a dance
Their faces shine of joy and glee, The sun will set over the horizon after the day goes by, Along with our spent time, merging with the sea. As you see the sun go, soon out of sight, The darkness overtakes and nightfall veils the sky, At this moment you come to realize, Good things happen, no matter what they imply.The assent of the moon shows us a new light, Dissolving all that was faulty, giving us a new start, It set us free of all hardships in life, There goes the summer fever giving us a change of heart.
