MESSAGES The richness of indian culture has universal acceptance. the multifaceted system of education that existed in India has undergone contemporary development spanning over several centuries without transforming the core of Indian philosophy. And, at bharatiya Vidya Bhavan we reach out to Surendralal G Mehta the student community to excel in both academic and co- curricular activities giving impetus to human values raising President, Bharatiya Vidya them to be responsible citizen of the countries they live. This Bhavan is unique to Bhavan. The Bhavan’s institutions both in India and abroad are committed to imparting quality education. The Bhavan’s schools in Bahrain, Kuwait and UAE have been playing an important role in the Middle East by providing quality education. We wish all the students a bright career ahead. We take this opportunity to greet our teachers and the parents of our students. Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has global presence as an institution of excellence. Apart from imparting quality education, Bhavan is committed to inculcate human values in every student.

Our continued efforts to orient our pedagogy system by adopting state of the art methods, foreseeing global needs and equipping the students with multidisciplinary tasks have succeeded enormously in laying a strong foundation among the students to be successful in every stride of their academic career. We wish our students at the Bhavan’s school’s in Bahrain, Kuwait and UAE a bright unique to Bhavan. The Bhavan’s institutions both in India and abroad are committed to imparting quality education.

MESSAGES 50, 40, 30 r even 20 years back – children were focused on age appropriate matters be it their education and cultural activities in school, responsibilities at home or the social community they lived in. Character building was the essence in school and at home. Individual satisfaction and personal NK Ramachandra Menon needs were not given importance or priorities. The change from then to now is visible at every home – The attitude of Chairman, Bharatiya Vidya parents and children at every home – then and now is far Bhavan Middle East different from the way it was back then. Change is necessary and even mandated as generations pass. But we as a school believe that culture and values should remain the same and be the solid foundation of every home for generations.During the last 15 years of my 7/24 involvement with children, parents and teachers, I am really surprised or in fact more saddened to see the current level of attitude of children from class 3 onwards. May be I belong to an older generation or still continue with the old school of thoughts. But I believe many of the children are diverting from their proper path, and chasing things that are not age appropriate, and not at all necessary in these years of their career. This will ultimately lead to more children being trapped in a whirlwind of activities and emotions that divert their attentions and focus from matters most essential to set their future on track. Many of the children are in the trap. I am very sure that as a parent you belong to one of these parent groups – either the ‘trapped’, or the possibly ‘going to be trapped’. During several interactions with parents it has come to my notice that there are a number of instances where children lack respect, cases where they retort and answer back, and yell at, when even the slightest or basic questions are asked at home, but the very same child was obedient and mostly well behaved at school. Yesterday I heard from my senior leadership team that grade 8 children have started answering back to Principal and Vice Principals. In the last couple of months, I have seen lots of such unhealthy incidents which warrant the parents’ immediate intervention.  17 SPANDAN - BHAVANS WISE INDIAN ACADEMY

I am sure many parents are experiencing the same, or similar situations at home, as well. Our children grow physically and they may be aware of many more things than necessary for their age because of increased social media presence – but their emotional responsibility level is still that of a child and not of an adult. They need to understand the impact of their words and actions, and take responsibility for the effects of the same.  At Bhavans we believe in character building which is the foundation of any child for a better tomorrow, better future. Education will follow automatically. Parents are requested to communicate with the senior management team of the school as and when necessary to discuss the progress of their children in all matters of their growth or when you feel there is a visible change in child’s attitude and behavior. Let us work together for a better tomorrow. Trust us, we are with you. Sooraj Ramachandran Dear Students / Teachers / Parents, Vice Chairman, It gives me immense pleasure to contribute to yet another issue Bhavans Middle East of our Annual School Magazine. Each year, the school magazine outlines the progress that the school has made during the previous academic year and recapitulates all events, showcasing the various activities of the school. This year has passed swiftly in a blur of achievements and accomplishments, and I would like to congratulate and extend my best wishes to all those who have worked hard to ensure that the magazine remains a treasure trove of memories. To me, the magazine will always be an event-filled journal, chronicling another exciting year that will be cherished by our students in the years to come. Through this magazine, I would like to greet all the stake holders of our school family. SPANDAN - BHAVANS WISE INDIAN ACADEMY 18

MESSAGES worked hard to ensure that the magazine remains a treasure trove of memories. To me, the magazine will always be an event-filled journal, chronicling another exciting year that will be cherished by our students in the years to come. Through this magazine, I would like to greet all the stake holders of our school family. As in the previous editions, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our teachers and students for our success during the year. The good work done by our team of teachers and students speaks highly of the excellent quality of education that is being imparted by our school. It is also testimony to all the hard work that is put in by our teachers, day in and day out. I am most pleased to see progress by our students each year, as new batches exceed previous batches, armed with an unstoppable motivation to excel. During the years, our institution has created an environment and ambience that fosters learning, as it provides the students with opportunities to explore and grow, through situations that challenge them to identify their strengths and reinforce them. In this regard, the words of the great scientist Albert Einstein are memorable when he said, “I don’t teach my children. I create conditions for them to Learn”. BHAVANS prides itself on the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual development of its students. We strive to impart knowledge that encompasses the prescribed syllabi of the institution as well as that of the world that lies beyond the classroom. It is our endeavor to shape well-rounded personalities that will contribute positively to society. To this end of holistic education, we strongly believe that educational excellence cannot be achieved solely through book knowledge. At our school, it has been our aim to provide the right environment for young minds to take wing. We shape them for a globalized future, where changes take place every second and decisions have to be taken on the spot. We prepare them for situations that call upon individuals who can step up and become leaders. Based on this premise, we believe in empowering our children so as to help them become the best they can be. In this regard, BHAVANS owes much to its dynamic leadership whose untiring efforts have resulted in the overall development of the School. I would also like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all our staff members for their dedication and hard work that 19 SPANDAN - BHAVANS WISE INDIAN ACADEMY

MESSAGES has ensured that our flag is always flying high. Kudos to the entire Bhavans team for their commendable efforts! I believe, that in the years to come, armed with commitment and perseverance in the pursuit of knowledge and education, Bhavans will continue to prosper. I pray that the Almighty God continues to bless this school, including the students, parents, and all those associated with this institution. I Thank You Once Again. Dear Students , Teachers and Parents When I was in school or perhaps to be specific during those years from Grade 12 – College , we would have a lot of conversations on what we wanted to do , what we wanted to achieve , how we Divya Ramachandran wanted our lives to turn out. Back then exposure to opportunities that waited outside were far and few. We just did what were told Director, to do – most of us atleast and that too with no actual vision. Bhavans Middle East We tended to follow the crowd – most of us. Bu of course exceptions were always there. So these conversations would pan out and conclude with some saying they wanted to be rich , somewanted fame and recognition and I would just say I wanted to be educated enough to be able to what I wanted to do – at any point of time. I never knew why I said it – but that was what I always said. Years later ( almost 15 years down the lane ) I just realized most of us are chasing our passions now. Back in those days we were never told the importance of having an interest in art , dance , music, games all we ever needed to do was study and set goals for a career. And years later we wish we had devoted some time to writing , reading , dance , music , sports. All these suddenly became our source of relaxation and venues for stress busting. If not they somehow turned out to be a strong passion SPANDAN - BHAVANS WISE INDIAN ACADEMY 20

MESSAGES which ended up being a source of income. And this made me realise how important it is to devote some timeduring our school years to identify the source of our passion and build our dreams.Dreams make us happy – they give us a purpose in life , a goal to achieve. And then what makes us more happier is chasing those dreams. We all have the power to make those little choices that can change the course of our lives forever. A choice to put in the extra hours , go the extra mile , pursue what you set your heart to , do things that seem like an opportunity , be creative , make lives better , make a difference. The things with having a choice is you can choose to wait around and hope that life gives you what you want or you can choose to jump up and put in the work to make your dreams come true. So while in school – walk out of your comfort zones ; It is only the first step, the beginning that is scary, terrifying , exciting and awesome – all at once. Do what you want to do – choose to write, sing , dance , play , anything that anyone might say you cannot do. For the time in school is the best time to explore, experience and chase activities that get you excited about living. Those things that give you simple and real pleasures. Chase things that give you hope and adds to your vision of a better life. Pursue opportunities that make you a better person. Chase things that inspire you to think , enhance your creativity and forces joy to station in your life. Pursue those things that reinforce in your soul that you can make a difference . Chase those pursuits that transforms your heart to selfless from selfish. And when you are out of school – continue to do the same.Don’t let anyone tell you your dreams are not real. Be responsible and be reasonable. Do not be led by the fears in your head and rather choose the belief in your soul. When we want something so strong – our head , heart and soul aligns and we are able to achieve it even when the odds are against us. Wishing all my students and the teachers and parents – a very happy new year and a year that sees us all on a path in pursuit of dreams , pursuit of happiness. Thank you. God Bless. 21 SPANDAN - BHAVANS WISE INDIAN ACADEMY

Sports Report sports day is an important event as it encourages the significance of physical exercise for the student. Physical activity increases metabolism and is good for health. Playing a sport regularly keeps children fit forever.    During the COVID19- pandemic, where most of us were reluctant to walk out of our house, we realized the necessity of having Sports Day more than ever. It is more important for kids to be as active as possible. Doing physical movement, such as walking or stretching, helps ease muscle strain, relieve mental tension and improve blood circulation and muscle activity. Keeping this in mind Bhavans wise Indian Academy, Ajman conducted “Annual sports meet 22-2021” virtually on 24th February with great zest.   Sports day was announced much in advance for students to have ample time to prepare themselves physically and mentally.

Unfortunately, you are a generation that’s very vulnerable, emotionally you are all nothing compared to what we are, ok I can definitely talk about my generation, we are very strong, our generation is very strong because parenting was tough, par- enting was very strict, they used to love us but punishments, expectations were high and not only parents anyone around us was allowed to discipline us, I grew up with brothers who used to taunt me, tease me. Today it’s called bullying, today it’s called body shaming. But in the process what happens is, in my case I became stronger and when I say I, I’m generally talking about my generation but what’s happening today, is we protect children so much they are in a bubble and over protection. I don’t know whether you are strong enough to handle what is waiting for you outside. I hope we are able to give you the strength to accept and deal with life. If I have risen from challenges then it is because I was strong and had a wonderful family to support. Stay close to your family always.

Waves went up And came back again to shower. And all over my face was covered with grains. I watched the sky, Crimson, yellow and orange. Fluffy clouds crossed slowly like snails.
