From Unit Head's Desk Dear team, World is witnessing second Corona wave in some parts and lockdowns have also been imposed in UK, Germany and New Zealand. This gives us signal to remain alert and not lower the guards. New vaccines to combat Covid-19 have been introduced in our country and as per our culture, Govt of India is also taking care of its neighbouring Countries. This reminds us the importance of value system . It’s a myth that only Organizations , institutions and other functionaries have brand values. In fact , each individual creates his or her own brand value and it is the one thing which remains even in our absence. I would like to encourage each one of us to live a value based life and imbibe values so that world becomes even more beautiful. Please continue to remain alert and keep using SMS ( Social distancing, Masks and Sanitization). Wishing you all a safe and healthy time ahead. Regards Shri Ajay Gupta( Sr. President, Grasim Industries Ltd)

C REATIVE MINDS # # #Life New normal Online Through these times of Covid, everyone is #tech savvy, and technology is being a feeder to every small thing these days. Every sphere of life requires being smart at the tech, also new spheres have formed, pre-existing things evolved. As biological analysis says ‘’Evolution is the basic key for the survival of organisms” This applies to all. A businessman cannot run his profession without technology, a teacher cannot teach without the web. Earlier electronic devices were not allowed in many places, now the world stays on the web. Covid 19made the world stay in their homes but people opened portals to every part of the world through the web. This brought a reformation though though these online stuff were there earlier as the Internet was designed in the 1960’s it moulded a lot to what it is presently. The #new normal produced new part time and full-time jobs online despite making many jobless. Though this Covid created havoc in this world it also gave us the #new normal Which made things as smooth as butter. Now shopping, learning etc… can be done easily at our safe homes. And it is now fundamentally vital for us to align with this. Preferably than going with negative effects of covid, it's good to change the perspective we look at things and relish the #new normal.

Pocket Veto Many of us know that the President of India exercises many powers, one of which is signing a bill which is passed with a simple majority from the parliament. But do you know that the President has a unique power that can make a bill null and void? In Class IX, we have learnt the main powers and functions of the President of India, some of them are: NOTE: The President exercises all these powers only on the advice of the Council of Ministers. All government activities take place in the name of the President. All laws and major policy decisions of the government are issued in his/her name. No Bill can become a law without the assent and the signature of the President. All major appointments are made in the name of the President. These include the appointment of the Chief Justice of India, the judges of the Supreme Court and High Courts of the states, the governors of the states, the Election Commissioners, and ambassadors to other countries, etc. All international treaties and agreements are made in the name of the President. The President is the supreme commander of the armed forces of India. Article 111 of the Indian constitution stipulates that the President shall declare his assent to a bill passed by both houses of Parliament or withhold his assent, provided that he/she may return the bill to Parliament for reconsideration. If the President returns the bill, and Parliament passes it once again, with or without any amendments, the President cannot withhold his assent. In the Indian History, there were two such cases when the President of India had a major disagreement on a specific bill.

The first major disagreement was on the Hindu Code bill of 1953 by the Former President Dr. Rajendra Prasad. The second major confrontation was between the Seventh President of India, Giani Zail Singh and the Former PM Rajiv Gandhi. Their conflict grew to its peak at the time of Indian Post Office (Amendment) Bill 1986. This bill, if passed and implemented, would have given all the power to the Union Government to read and censor all the personal mails and posts of the people of India, thus imposing restrictions on the freedom of press. As mentioned previously, a bill can only become a law after the President gives assent to it. President Giani Zail Singh rejected the bill for the first time and sent that bill back to the parliament for reconsideration. And you can already vguess that the parliament passed the bill again and President Giani Zail Singh was left no other option than to give his assent. However, the Indian Constitution does not give a specific time frame for the President to sign/assent on a bill sent by the Parliament. Thus, by indefinitely postponing action on a bill, and not sending it back to Parliament, the president effectively vetoes the bill. President Giani Zail Singh used this loophole and he never signed that bill thus preventing the Indian Post Office (Amendment) Bill from becoming law. After this incident the people of India could witness a new power of the President. Later it was named Pocket Veto. Therefore, A pocket veto is a legislative maneuver that allows a president or another official with veto power to exercise that power over a bill by taking no action (keeping it in their pocket) instead of affirmatively vetoing it. So, we also come to know that the President has the power to potentially null and void any parliamentary bill that he/she believes to be wrong or violating the basic rights of the citizens.

Relegion is no Enemy of Science RELIGION IS NO ENEMY OF SCIENCE: \"Religion is no enemy of science..\" Say that to Galileo and he; 'll bite your hands off. Galileo had a very tough time with the Church in the 17th century. The Church downplayed Galileo's theories of the earth and claimed that Aristotle's theories were the ultimate truth. Galileo and other scientists of his time met secretly to discuss their findings. Now, four centuries later, we consider Galileo to be one of the greatest scientists of all time. The number PHI is regarded as the most beautiful number in the world. The reason is that the number PHI (1.618) is the fundamental building block of nature. For example, consider ANY beehive in the world and divide the number of male bees by the number of female bees and you get 1.618 . Another example , divide the length of your shoulders to fingertips by your elbow to fingertips and you get PHI . One more example divide the length from the hip to the toe by the knee to the toe and again it is PHI . This might be one reason why scientists have not ruled out God's hand in the making of the earth . The perfection and the recurrence of the magical PHI number have made the scientists curious. Recently, scientists in Europe built the much-hyped LHC ( Large Hadrons Collider ) which has the potential to fuse religion and science. One of the hypotheses of this experiment was that matter could be created out of nothing. Thus, it could be said that God infused the earth with creatures out of nothing. Ultimately science and religion conclude that matter was created out of nothing. Religion and Science are no enemies of each other . They are two sides of the same coin. Vishal S K, VIII A

Words to Imbibe The Power of GRIT We all are born accidentally but what happens in our life should not be accidental. If a person is born poor then it is not his fault, but if he dies poor then definitely it is his mistake because of lack of grit in him. The real success lies not in intelligence but it is grit in a person. Mrs. Nirmala Then what is grit? It is an urge to achieve something through consistency in pursuing with perseverance and interest through proper channel. I have observed students who identify their area of interest and carry it has a hobby. Later when they go for higher studies they drop their interest. This may be due to various reasons such as lack of motivation from their parents, peer pressure etc., But these are all blame games. The bitter truth is that they lack grit in them. Few years back the University of Michigan has made a research on what makes the people successful by considering various factors such as academic results, family background, wealth, legacy, etc, unfortunately none of these were correct. Ultimately what they found was grit. The people who had passion and perseverance, who worked with an undivided focus are the example of grit. If we look at the famous personalities like Steve Jobs, Elon mask, Bill gates- they all have one thing in common that is grit. The road travelled through grit is not a bed of roses; it is full of humiliation, struggle for existence, ruthless approach of people and tolerance. It is better to identify your area of interest and work upon it with grit. Definitely your destiny will be in your hands. I would like to conclude by saying “GRIT is the secret of success”

Alumni Speak It was a great journey at Aditya Birla Public School and Polifibers Junior College. The best part about studying here is that you are very close to your teachers and you have great support from them any time of the day. They are always your well-wishers and have supported me in a great way for the person I am today. I am grateful to them even today. To all the aspiring students there, I would like to say that there is no career right or wrong, no career is big or small. In the end, it matters how you make your career and how hard you work on achieving it. Remember that the path to success is not easy like when you try to walk as a toddler you fall a many time, yet you learn to walk, that’s how life comes to you with many challenges and every challenge you face, you will be a better person tomorrow. As it is said, “Reach for the stars so if you fail you will land on the clouds”. All the very best to the Booming stars of ABPS, Rise, and Shine!!

Alumni Speak The biggest question that everyone is trying to find an answer for is — “What is my purpose?”. Many people, young and old, are still searching for the answers. You often find inspiring quotes from Mark Twain: “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why” pushing you to find the purpose of your life. Make no mistake: this can happen, in some form, but it’s rarer than most people think. For an average 20-year-old, finding that silver bullet often ends up in frustration more than fulfillment. We all suffer from an underlying misconception about purpose, challenging these misbeliefs would help us develop a well-rounded vision of purpose. Purpose is only a thing you find–Not true. Focus on what’s so meaningful of the job and on doing it in such a way that the meaning is enhanced and takes ce nter stage. Long story short, purpose is a thing you build, not a thing you find. Purpose is a single thing–Acknowledging multiple sources of purpose takes the pressure off finding a single thing to give our lives meaning and helps us find value in our work and lives. The purpose is stable over time–Evolution of purpose is natural and good. Your focus and sense of purpose could dramatically change in 20 years, and it’s true for most people that you meet. Be comfortable and embrace the changes, it wilallow you to better understand the presence and role of purpose in your lives. To conclude, build your purpose and find meaning in the work that you are doing, it will add more value to your life and guarantee satisfaction. - Akash Shanbhag Associate Analytics Consultant Denver, CO
