said Francis Bacon. Reading can have a tremendous effect not only on a person's academic accomplishments but also on one's personality. It influences your language and thinking. It gives the reader an idea of the different places you long to visit. Reading books can teleport you totally to an entirely new world of the book... those who have tasted the joy of reading will readily agree on this point. There are different types of books...in Bacon's words...some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed and some few to be chewed and digested.Books are a treasure trove of information. It is the easiest and simplest device to impart knowledge. Jnanamanjari is an earnest attempt at driving home this point... encouraging the habit of reading. The contents of this magazine by the students showcases their talent in writing and our attempt to make them a 'complete man'. Chitra Rajagopalan How schools shape our lives!
friends, to play, to eat together and to chat with each other. School gives us joy and happiness most of the times. The school system educates us. The teachers instil in us value systems such as caring, sharing and giving. They allow us to make mistakes and correct us when we are in the wrong. They are strict when required, but most of times they are our friend, philosopher and guide. As Albert Einstein has said, “It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” In school, we are led into the wonderful world of the magnificent geographies, we unravel the mysteries of science, we dig deep into our past to study the various histories of the countries, we learn book keeping and mathematics and we are equipped to become productive citizens of society, to help society as the school has helped shaped us. More important, the school is the place which establishes the discipline is us. And it is not just education that we imbibe in a school; the icing on the top is the extracurricular activities that we love in school. Whether it is participating in sports, or learning music and dance or joining the debate and dramatics, it gives us a thrill to contribute something out of our lessons and education. And finally that thirst for knowledge that a school stimulates which stays with us well into our college, and in our later years, is the single most important contribution of why we can’t miss school. I hope every student is using all the opportunities provided so that they become better citizens of tomorrow. There in lies my wish and prayer! Srinivasan K Swamy President, NBGES Message
students of Kalalaya for this unique endeavour of releasing Jnanamanjari – the school magazine online. It is very apt to do so at this juncture when the world is going digital. Dr. A.P. J. Abdul Kalam said:- “Learning gives creativity, creativity leads to thinking, thinking provides knowledge, knowledge makes you great.” Let me wish you a year of joyful learning with a focus on character building. My blessing to all the Kalalayans for their good health and happiness. DR. SMT. VATHSALA NARAYANASWAMI HONY. SECRETARY, N.B.G.E.S. FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK-
kindergarten to class 12. The Smart boards, tabs, computers have become commonplace. By embracing and integrating technology in the classroom, we are ensuring that the students are future ready. The online magazine is an attempt towards this end, keeping in mind the fact that there is an attempt everywhere to go paperless to save the environment. Progress with a humane touch is our mantra. I wish all the staff and students a successful and joyous year ahead as we march towards our 30th year. I would like to end with the words of Napoleon Hill, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” Let us keep the kalalaya flag flying high.
