एक हँसी जिंदगी जीने का तरीका

यूँ जमीन पर बैठकर क्यों आसमान देखता है
पंखों को खोल जमाना सिर्फ उड़ान देखता है
लहरों की तो फितरत ही है शोर मचाने की
मंज़िल उसी की होती है जो नजरों में तूफान देखता है ।

एक बार एक जोकर ने दर्शकों से भरी हुई सर्कस में एक बहुत ही लाजवाब जोक सुनाया, जोक इतना शानदार था कि हँसते-हँसते दर्शकों की आँखों से आँसू गिरने लगे, दर्शक जब शांत हुए तो जोकर ने फिर से वहीँ जोक  उससे भी ज्यादा जोश के साथ सुनाया, एक बार फिर दर्शकों के चेहरे पर हँसी आ गयी,  जोकर ने फिर वही  जोक तीसरी बार सुनाया, इस बार दर्शकों की हँसी केवल मुस्कान में बदल गयी, और जोकर ने जब चौथी बार इसी जोक को फिर से सुनाया तो किसी दर्शक को हँसी नहीं आई। 

भीड़ में से एक दर्शक चिल्लाया “ क्यूँ बार-बार एक ही जोक सुना कर बोर कर रहे हो। ”तब जोकर ने  वहाँ बैठे लोगों से पूछा: जब मेरे एक जोक पर आप बार-बार हँस नहीं सकते तो फिर आप अपनी  जिंदगी में की गयी एक ही गलती को बार-बार सोच कर क्यूँ परेशान होते रहते हैं, क्यूँ एक ही चीज  को लेकर एक ही जगह पर रूक जाते हैं और जिंदगी में आगे नहीं बढ़ते. याद रखो कि-हम इंसान हैं  गलतियाँ करना हमारी फितरत में है, इन्ही गलतियों से हम सीखते हैं और आगे बढ़ते हैं। 

इस दुनिया का हर आविष्कार किसी न किसी के द्वारा की गयी गलतियों से सीखने का ही परिणाम है, एक छोटे से बिजली के बल्ब से लेकर इस दुनिया का बड़े से बड़ा जहाज तक, कुछ भी पहली बार में परफेक्ट नहीं था, इन्हें बनाने में लोगों ने बार-बार गलतियाँ की फिर उन गलतियों से सीखा और आगे बढ़ते  चले गये, इस दुनिया के हर महान कहलाने वाले इंसान ने अपनी जिंदगी में बहुत बड़ी-बड़ी  गलतियाँ की हैं लेकिन वो कभी रूके नहीं।

फिर आप लोग अपनी छोटी-छोटी गलतियों को लेकर क्यूँ हमेशा खुद को कोसते रहते हो, क्यूँ अपने चारों  ओर एक अनदेखी सी दीवार खडी कर रक्खी है, याद रखिये आप इंसान हैं, और इंसान का इतिहास है कि वो जबसे वजूद मेंआया तबसे उसने गलतियाँ की और उनसे सीखते हुए आज इस मुकाम तक पहुँचा, इसलिए  अपनी की हुई गलतियों के लिए खुद को जिंदगी भर सजा मत दीजिये। अपनी गलतियों से सीखो और आगे  बढ़ जाओ – ये खुबसूरत जिंदगी आपकी तरफ बाँहें फैला कर खड़ी है आगे बढ़ो और लगा लो इसे सीने से!

Happiness

Happiness is an inner feeling of contentment and joy. Without this, our life would be empty and dull. Each one has a different meaning of happiness. For some, it would mean making ourselves happy, while for some others it means making others happy. Somebody gets happiness through success, peace of mind, fulfilling one’s own desire, while some others get happiness by helping others in work, or by helping the needy, or any stranger like helping a blind person to cross the road, feeding the hungry, etc.

To be happy one must keep the following points in mind:

  • Know Yourself: If you know - what you want, what you have, how to get anything, then you will be content with what you have and never be sad.
  • Be Empathetic and Understanding Towards Others: If you have qualities like sympathy, empathy, and understanding, then it will be easier to understand others feeling and actions and that will help one to be happy.
  • Help the Needy: When you help those people who are in need of help without their asking, then this gives you happiness as you realize that your little help can bring your smile to another face.
  • Caring and Sharing: By sharing and caring for your family, relatives and friends you can get happiness as your close ones are happy then you automatically become happy.
  • Love Everyone and Learn to Forgive and Forget: If you love everyone you will never have hatred in your heart. If someone hurts and you forgive them, then there is no chance of bitter feeling coming in your mind and heart, so you will always be happy.
  • Praise Yourself and Others: Whenever you do something good then praise yourself and also celebrate it. In the same manner, if others do something good for you, praise them. This will give you happiness.

If you follow the above steps then you are sure to happy in your life.

A Letter To My New Principal



गुरू महिमा

गुरू ही है जो अपने शिष्यों को अज्ञान रुपी अंधकार से ज्ञान रुपी प्रकाश की ओर ले जाते हैं। माँ बालक की प्रथम गुरू कहलाती है क्योंकि कई सारी बांतें बालक अपनी माँ से ही सीखता है। द्वितीय स्थान शिक्षक का है, वह भी अपना सर्वश्रेष्ठ अपने शिष्य को देने की इच्छा रखता है।

गुरू की महिमा का वर्णन कोई नहीं कर सका गुरू का स्थान ऊँचा रहा है पहले के जमाने में गुरूआश्रम में अपने शिष्यों को शिक्षा देते थे । लेकिन समय बदला और  बहुत सारे बदलाव आए अबगुरूकुल या आश्रम से स्कूल कॉलेज बन चुके हैं। गुरू हमें सही गलत की शिक्षा देता है। मार्गदर्शन करता है हमें सब कुछ सिखाता है गुरू का आज भी आदर है गुरू-पूर्णिमा  का पर्व बड़े धूमधाम से मनाया जाता है। भले ही कबीरदास जी अनपढ़ थे परन्तु गुरू की महिमा का भान था उन्हें तभी तो वे कहते थे-

गुरू गोबिन्द दोऊ खड़े काके लागु पाय।
बलिहारी गुरू आपनी गोबिन्द दियो बताय।

स्वयं ईश्वर ने कहा है कि गुरू महान है क्योंकि परमात्मा तक पहुँचने का मार्ग गुरू ही दिखलाता है। प्राचीन काल में जब गुरुकुल में शिक्षा होती थी तब गुरू व शिष्य में घनिष्ठ  संबंध होते हैं, वे साथ रहते तथा एक दूसरे को ठीक तरह समझते थे । महाभारत में जैसे सभी जानते हैं कि  एकलव्य द्रोणाचार्य से  छिप-छिपकर  धनुष  विद्या सीखता था। वह सर्वश्रेष्ठ धनुर्धर बन चुका था गुरूदक्षिणा में उसका अंगूठा अपने गुरू को दे दिया क्योंकि एकलव्य के लिए धनुष विद्या अपने गुरू से बढ़कर नहीं थी । इसी महाभारत में जब युद्ध का वर्णन आता है तब पांडव युद्ध करने से पहले अपने गुरू द्रोणाचार्य को प्रणाम करते हैं और गुरू भी विपक्षी दल में होते हुए विजय का आशीर्वाद देते थे। दोनों पक्षों में कितनी सरलता छिपी रहती थी जो केवल ऐसे अवसरों पर ही दृष्टिगोचर होती थी।

समय अवश्य बदला है किन्तु गुरू का स्थान नहीं।  आज भी शिक्षक अपने शिष्य को उच्च ज्ञान देने के लिए तत्पर रहता है।  इस हेतु वह स्वयं नवीन तथ्यों से अवगत रहता है। समाचार-पत्रों, पत्रिकाओं या अन्य पुस्तकों द्वारा समसामयिक गतिविधियों से साक्षात्कार करता रहता है। गुरूसे हमेशा सीखते रहिए कभी भी अपने आप को गुरू से श्रेष्ठ न समझना चाहिए तब गुरू भगवान से बढ़कर प्रतीत होता है गुरू के प्रति आदर रखना चाहिए यही शिष्य का धर्म है।

IMPORTANCE OF ORGANIC FARMING

Food is one of the basic needs of us but we are not bothered about the quality of it. We do not know what are the harmful chemicals or adulterants present in it. These all lead to biological magnification followed by many diseases. So this is the right time to turn towards nature.

Organic farming is a method of agriculture in which farmers avoid the use of chemical fertilisers, pesticides, hormones etc. Instead of these, they use crop residues, animal manures, leaves of plants, off-farm organic waste to the maximum extent. Scientific methods like mixed cropping, crop rotations and biological system of nutrient mobilisation and plant protection are applied for maximum yield.
Nowadays we are seeing a rise in organic farming, as it is the need of the hour. Consumers are becoming highly conscious about their health and the food they consume. More and more people are opting for organic food to avoid the consumption of food that is grown by using chemical ways.

Unfortunately, there are many farmers who aim the profit only. In order to yield early and abundant produce, many farmers in the rural areas have been using chemical fertilisers, pesticides and hormone applications. It is due to the lack of knowledge. But this is gradually changing as more farmers are choosing the organic route. There are some people who have decided to venture into this field, either by producing or supporting farmers to yield fresh and unadulterated produce that is healthy for consumption. Also, with more number of people preferring to consume organic food, and with the number of organic e-commerce stores popping up in various cities, it seems like people are moving towards the right direction.

It is very important to make all people aware of the dangerous impact of consumption of food items available in markets. Our government should do something to promote organic farming. Organic farming communities should conduct various workshops on cultivation methods, pest management and long-term benefit of going the organic way by showing the sustainability of these practices. Organic farmers should encourage other farmers to visit their farm and learn about their best way of cultivation. So let’s take some initiatives to promote best practices for all of us.

Is Your Child Ready To Face The World?


Parenting is a very complex skill.  Good parenting requires constant adaptation to the fast-changing world. In today's world, a child's time is occupied by various activities along with many distractions like gadgets which keeps the child busy and the parent's hectic job schedules leave very less time for positive communication between a child and the parents.

Dr Anupam Sibal, a paediatrician and a Group Medical Director of Apollo Hospitals Group has very effectively shown the approach to parenthood. Dr Sibal has shown the hands-on approach to focus on different values and qualities to instil in a child.

Different traits of personalities are very beautifully explained in different chapters of this book through examples of Sachin Tendulkar, Mahatma Gandhi, Bill Gates, Stephen Hawking, Ratan Tata and the likes. Some examples of ordinary people with extraordinary qualities are also worth reading. 

This book is a great help to parents as well as teachers. It deals in an effective way of bringing up a child from infancy to adulthood with a proper emotional and intellectual development. This book shows how inspiring icons, world events and personal success stories can be used to communicate with the child about the various values that every parent feel should be inculcated in a child. 

As a mother and a teacher, this book has enriched me with some great parenting skills and has redefined my approach towards parenthood.

आत्मविश्वास

आत्मविश्वास का अर्थ है स्वयं पर यकीन , स्वयं पर विश्वास होना । जिसको स्वयं पर   यकीन न हो तो वह व्यक्ति कभी भी कामयाब नहीं हो सकता । सफल होने के लिए स्वयं पर विश्वास होना जरूरी है  | आत्मविश्वास से व्यक्ति इस संसार में जीने के योग्य बनता है । जीवन के हर क्षेत्र में हमें आत्मविश्वास की जरुरत होती है । आत्मविश्वास से हमें   किसी भी कार्य को पूर्ण करने की हिम्मत मिलती है  और हमारा कार्य सफल होता है ।

 आत्मविश्वास से भरपूर व्यक्ति के लिए कुछ भी असम्भव नहीं । आज जो मशीनें या आविष्कार हुए है यह व्यक्ति ने किए क्योंकि  उसको स्वयं पर विश्वास था । आत्मविश्वास की शक्ति न तो कोई चमत्कार है और न ही रहस्य यह तो एक सहज क्रिया है और हम सभी के दायरे में आती है । आत्मविश्वास की शक्ति ऐसे काम कराती है कि  आप जिस भी कार्य को करें, उसे पक्के इरादे से करें कि आप उसमेँ जरूर सफलता प्राप्त  करेँगे ।

व्यक्ति को अपने विचारों पर व अपनी सोच पर अटल रहना चाहिए । अपने अंदर छिपे भय को निकाल दें । हमें अपने जीवन के किसी भी लक्ष्य को प्राप्त और अपना वजूद कायम करना है तो बेकार की उलझनों में उलझ कर अपना समय बर्बाद नहीं करना चाहिए । आत्मविश्वास को जगाने के लिए हमें अपनी सोच सकारात्मक रखनी चाहिए , कठिन समय में घबराना नहीं चाहिए, कभी भी अपनी तुलना किसी और से करे तो स्वयं को किसी से कम न समझें, अच्छी सूरत के साथ अच्छी सीरत होनी चाहिए । अपने होसलें बुलंद रखें, अपने निर्णय स्वयं लें , और एक प्यार भरी मुस्कान हमेशा अपने चेहरे पर रखें ।

Humility

Humility is a virtue that everyone should possess. Educators need to be humble if they want their students to listen to them. In our human life when we have something immediately pride, vanity and many other undefined forces enter into us. We extol ourselves to the skies. We feel that we are the superior most. We start looking down on our fellow beings and also many times hurt their feelings.

Have you ever seen a tree? When the tree is in full bloom laden with fruits it always bows down to offer you its fruits. The whole tree stands upright due to its roots which firmly go deep down in the earth. This is the humbleness which we human beings should show. There have been many great men like Mr George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, etc who even after attaining a high post were very humble. They never had a speck of pride in them and this was their greatness.

Ms Bharti Rao narrating the
story to the children at School
Kings like Harishchandra have been so humble that to fulfil the oath of a sage, he left his kingdom and separated from his wife and child. When pride diminishes and disappears humility increases and looms large. An educator should always remember and understand the fact that one may know a great deal, but one may not know everything. One needs to possess the value of humility and should be willing to learn from others whether they be their students, parents or colleagues

The pursuit of humility once we properly understand, yields to better relationships and faster growth. You should always treat everyone with respect irrespective of their age, job and that he is as worthy and important as oneself. An effective teacher is one who is a humble person. I end this article by quoting the words of Sir Chinmoy “The strength of Pride must eventually surrender to the power of humility.”

Leverage research on curriculum and professional learning to fulfill the vision of PLCs

By Stephanie Hirsh
Executive Director, Learning Forward

Perhaps you've seen our recent blogs calling on professional learning communities (PLCs) to anchor their work in the deep study of their curriculum and instructional materials. At Learning Forward, we have always been explicit about the importance of focusing professional learning on the outcomes we expect for students and their teachers.

Now, a growing body of research shows that high-quality curricula in the hands of effective teachers have a positive impact on student learning. In the face of that compelling research, we believe that even more deliberate and intentional attention to a curriculum-driven agenda contributes to an aligned and coherent professional learning system.

The Standards for Professional Learning define the elements critical to professional learning that produces results for students and teachers. They are grounded in a theory of change that connects the elements to advances in educator knowledge and skills; changes in educator practice; and finally, improvements in student learning. Focusing the work of PLCs on curriculum and instructional materials leverages the very best of what the standards guide us to do.

Critical to implementing high-performing PLCs are the Learning Communities, Leadership, and Resources standards. Establishing an expectation that PLCs anchor school learning sets a foundation to ensure alignment, collective responsibility, and continuous improvement. Effective leadership at the system, school, and team levels ensures that teams have the materials, schedule, and support they need to do the work that is most important.

The breadth of work that a PLC is able to undertake is correlated to the resources allocated it, the most important of which is time. If a PLC is given only an hour a week to convene, the depth of its collaborative study and problem-solving is much more limited than that of a team provided the recommended three to four hours per week.
Given each unique setting, PLCs pull from curriculum units, scope, and sequences, and lessons to understand and identify the outcomes that determine how success will be measured for each cycle of learning. A cycle of learning can be planned for a course of study (e.g. themes, units, lessons) or a period of time (e.g. semester, quarter, six weeks). These decisions are related to several factors, including the time the team will have to work together.

Throughout the cycle, the team is regularly grounding its work in the curriculum and instructional materials. The cycle begins with determining outcomes and examining data to determine the greatest needs and opportunities for achieving them. Data let the team know where their students are in relation to these outcomes. Team members look at educator and student data so they can better understand where students may struggle and where additional support will be needed.
Studying the curriculum and the data leads team members to answer the question: What are priorities for student and educator learning? Educators will return to the data throughout the cycle as they monitor and assess the impact of their decisions and practices on their students.

Following this process, PLC members write and enact a learning design that will enable them to answer their questions and achieve their learning goals. A learning design grounded in curriculum and instructional materials focuses learning on the content of materials, refinement of lessons and assessments to meet unique student contexts and needs, and rehearsal with any materials team members want to fine-tune before using with students.

This stage is followed by implementation of the refined lessons and teachers' planned assessments. During this stage, PLC members find other ways to support the transfer of new learning into their classrooms. They may choose to observe others implement first, co-teach with a colleague, or invite a coach to provide feedback on their instruction.
As part of the cycle of learning, they begin monitoring and reflecting on their practice and its impact. They look for opportunities to improve as well as preserve what works well. They understand that this is a continuous improvement process. Someday, they will return to this unit. Having thorough notes so they can know what to do next time will be very important for maintaining momentum.

The Standards for Professional Learning can be similarly applied to other important changes and programs a state or school system is trying to undertake. They can be used as the foundation for initiating a statewide leadership academy or implementing a new behavior management program across a system or school.

Combining the long-standing research that undergirds the standards with the compelling research that is emerging about curriculum offers substantive guidance and opportunities to fulfill the promise of professional learning communities.

Watch for the release of the Learning Forward white paper High-Quality Curricula and Team-Based Professional Learning: A Perfect Partnership for Equity, which focuses on integrating professional learning and high-quality curriculum and instructional materials.

This post originally appeared in Learning Forward's PD Watch.

Leadership


Leadership is an important core value to be inculcated in the students by the team of Educators in schools, so as to make leaders and not followers of the society and the nation.  The most important aspect of a leader is to guide and direct others to reach a common goal i.e. to lead a team, group, community, religion, organisation or a country. It is often said that leaders are born but some become by choice or circumstances, which means everyone has a hidden potential to be a leader – all one needs is an appropriate opportunity, a vision, the ability to dream and the determination to realize the dream and to achieve the set goal. 

The various qualities a leader should have can be summed up as – a leader should be a good thinker – he should be able to think new ideas, create a vision and find out means of fulfilling them. Next, the leader should believe in teamwork, take out time to listen to the views and ideas of others and accept the ideas that are suitable for the mission, this makes him a good listener also. Then he will be able to plan out the strategies and allocate different tasks to different teammates according to their abilities and training and then keeps an eye on the progress of the work and keep motivating his teammates, which does not mean that he does not do anything himself but make others do, instead he leads by example and is a role model for others.
A good leader is a tireless worker, with endless energy and has qualities like- simplicity, humility and compassion. They are people who resist temptations, follow rules and regulations and show exemplary discipline of body and soul. Leadership is practised not so much in words as in attitude and in actions.

Leadership is practised not so much in words as in attitude and in actions.

शिक्षा का महत्व

प्राचीन समय से ही भारत-वर्ष में शिक्षा का बड़ा महत्व रहा है।  कई गुरुकुल विश्व प्रसिद्ध थे - जैसे - तक्षशिला, नालंदा आदि।  कुछ लोगों का मानना है की बालिकाओं के लिए शिक्षा की व्यवस्था नहीं थी परन्तु इस बात को ऐसे ही स्वीकार नहीं किया सकता।  हाँ, बालिका शिक्षा के केंद्र कम रहे होंगे पर बिल्कुल ही नहीं थे ऐसा नहीं कहा जा सकता।  कई ऐसे उदाहरण देखने को मिलते है जहाँ महिलाओं ने अपनी योग्यता प्रदर्शित की, चाहे वह रण भूमि हो या शास्त्रार्थ स्थल। ये विषय कुछ अलग है कि व्यक्ति के जीवन में शिक्षा का क्या महत्व है।  शिक्षा से व्यक्ति योग्य बनता है, समाज में सम्मान पाता है।  अपने जीवन के लिए नौकरी-पेशा तो प्राप्त करता ही है।  इतना कुछ होने पर भी कुछ लोग शिक्षा से विमुख रहते हैं।  इसके कई कारण हो सकते हैं जैसे- गरीबी अथवा उनके माता-पिता का अनपढ़ रहना या अन्य कोई।

शिक्षा से व्यक्ति का जीवन बदल जाता है तथा अपने परिवार का भी जीवन बदल देता है।  आजकल शिक्षा के मार्ग सभी के लिए है और आसान भी है।  वैसे तो प्रथम पाठशाला परिवार ही कहा जाता है जहाँ बालक व्यवहारिक ज्ञान के साथ संस्कार भी सिखता है।  परन्तु स्कूल की शिक्षा बालक का सर्वांगिण विकास करती है।  मानसिक, शारीरिक, नैतिक तथा व्यक्तित्व के विकास के लिए विद्यालय की शिक्षा आवश्यक है।  रोजगार के साथ शिक्षा से बालक को बुरी परिस्थितियों से सामना करना  भी सिखाया जाता है।  अन्य कई कौशल वह स्वतः ही सीख लेता है। अच्छी शिक्षा प्राप्त कर कृषि या अपने किसी पारम्परिक पेशे में उचित बदलाव ला सकता है। उचित ही लिखा गया है कि-
चोर हार्यं राज्य हार्यं  भातृ भाज्यं भारकारि
व्यये कृते वर्धतः एव नित्यं विद्या धनं सर्व धन प्रधानं।

प्राप्त की गई शिक्षा अर्थात विद्या कभी कोई चुरा नहीं सकता, राजा कर के रूप में नहीं ले सकता, भाई पिता की संपत्ति की तरह बाँट नहीं सकते, ऐसा विद्या धन है जो खर्च करने पर केवल बढ़ता ही जाता है।  

यदि कुछ पिछड़े राज्यों की तरफ निगाह डाले तो जानकर आश्चर्य होगा कि वहाँ के पिछड़ेपन, बेरोजगारी, जनसंख्या वृद्धि आदि का मूल कारण अशिक्षा ही है।  शिक्षा के अभाव में स्वयं का तो पतन होता ही है साथ ही साथ वह अपने राज्य-राष्ट्र की गरीमा को भी कलंकित करता है।  वर्तमान में शिक्षा की राह आसान हुई है - राज्य सरकारें उच्च-प्राथमिक स्तर तक सभी के लिए पुस्तकों के साथ पोषाहार की व्यवस्था कर रही है, विभिन्न स्तर पर छात्रवृत्तियाँ प्रदान की जा रही है, उच्च शिक्षा के लिए ऋण उपलब्ध करवाये जा रहे है, दूरस्थ शिक्षा भी एक नवीन  घटक के रूप में प्रकट हुआ है।  इन में से किसी भी योजना का लाभ उठाकर बालक को शिक्षित करना चाहिए। शिक्षा का महत्व संस्कृत के इस श्लोक में बखूबी वर्णित है -
विद्या ददाति विनयं विनयाद याति पात्रतां
पात्र त्वाद धनमाप्नोति धनाद धर्मः ततः सुखं।
