Live and Let Live
God created their world not for the benefit of mankind alone. No doubt man today is the master of the earth. He has tamed even tigers and elephants and king Cobras. But his brain-superiority does not give him the right to hunt down all kinds and species of animals. .Animals normally live in forests. They don’t attack us unless we provoke them or encroach in their territoiy. They are as rule afraid of us. They serve some useful purposes. So killing them for pleasure or for their skin and bones is a sin and a crime.We need to learn to live together not only with our fellow beings but also with all the creatures created by God.’ In other words, we should live ourselves as well let others also live in peace. War, hunting and violence are against the will of God and the law of the land. Coexistence should be our motto.

CCE : A way to New Education
CBSE has announced a new pattern of education from class VI onwards. This system – – includes two methods of evaluation-Summative Assessment and Formative Assessment. Summative Assessment evaluates the academic performance of a student. Formative Assessment is an assessment of the non-academic performance of a Student. Summative Assessment is simple but Formative Assessment has a large scope of assessment. A teacher has to count the personality, behaviour, activities, attitude and other extra curricular activities of a student. As I think, it promotes a tendency ‘ of being perfect throughout the year. It helps in personality building. The pattern ofquestions in Summative Assessment does not put any pressure on us but it sharpens our intelligence. So I think, the new assessment is very helpful for us.
