All the negative emotions like hatred, jealousy, contempt, anger, impulsiveness, and adamance will go away, once we look into ourselves. We need to receive a better response from ourselves, she said, if we want to feel the internal peace, which is otherwise slipping far away from us. Just like Aatma Nirbhar Bharat, we need to find Aatma Nirbhar individuals to free ourselves from the shackles of emotional dependency, she said.



After taking care of their health and fitness the previous day, the volunteers at the NSS camp at KBDAV Senior Secondary Public School, Sector. 7 – B, Chandigarh, sat down today to ponder over the career choices that are open to them in future.

The training was to defend oneself in case one is face to face with an unpleasant situation/person. It was difficult to judge what was more interesting – Mr. Sanjay’s lecture to the boys and girls on the right mode of living or his training of different strong moves to defend oneself in case of emergencies. He spoke about the lifestyle that is responsible for making us dullards, and camouflaging our capabilities, which are otherwise integrally present inside us. He then demonstrated different moves that can be used for self-defence, focusing on the strong and weak points in a human body. Even the learners attached online did the moves at their homes and enjoyed learning them.

Every major decision taken at the Centre directly affects the youth of a Nation. And when the decision is as strong, challenging and vibrant, as the need for making India a Self-Reliant Nation, the youth of the Country cannot afford to sit back silent and merely observe. So, when the Prime Minister of the Country, Mr. Narendra Modi announced in May 2020 that the time to make the Country Self-Reliant has come, the young brains of KBDAV Senior Secondary Public School, Sector. 7 – B, Chandigarh from Classes IX and X pulled up their socks and got together in a webinar on 13 August 2020 to discuss the feasibility of the proposal.

The discussion on the issue was organised in the form of a debate on the motion: SELF-RELIANT INDIA- a DISTANT DREAM, with 32 teams presenting their arguments in favour of and against the motion, and around 95 participants attending the meet.  The Principal of the school, Mrs.Pooja Prakash was herself one of the judges of the debate, with Ms. Beenu Malhotra, teacher of English for Secondary and Senior Secondary classes, being the second judge.

The views from both the sides were so strong and convincing that it was hard to be on one side completely. Whereas the debaters supporting the motion argued that the impediments on the path to self-reliance were many, and quite tough; the speakers criticising them quoted examples of the sectors in which India has already shown its independence, and is on the way to make 12 more sectors self-reliant soon.

When one debater argued that India faces challenges of transportation cost, expensive power and property, and complicated labour laws, her opponent lost no time in shooting back that the new policies being framed at the Centre were going to find a solution to each hurdle that India has faced hitherto. One speaker pointed out the resolve of India to invite as many countries as possible in the near future to come and invest here, and set up their companies in India, offering employment, training and research opportunities to millions of Indians in whom lies a humongous potential, waiting to be tapped.

By the end of the debate, the motion seemed to be tilted in favour of A SELF-RELIANT INDIA, A new INDIA with lots of positive things happening soon. Both the judges congratulated the speakers for coming forward and expressing their robust views, and encouraged them to continue working to give shape to the SELF-RELIANT INDIA of tomorrow.

KBDAV 7 Celebrates Water Week : "Volturnalia" : An Odyssey To Save Water

Among the top most priorities with KBDAV-7, water conservation has always taken the lead, owing to the water crisis that we witness around the World these days. KBDAV-7 has never lagged behind in creating awareness among its students to preserve water for future use, and to spread the message far and wide the week from 20 July 2020- 25 July 2020 was dedicated to celebrating Water Week at the School for class VIII learners. A series of Competitions took place from Monday to Saturday to bring home the fact that survival on this planet is impossible without water.

Cadence competition- A competition to test the Musical Skills of the Learners and create the best Jingle, for the enthusiastic performance from the young minds.

The evil of wastage of water masquerades itself behind the faces of those careless people who allow water to run freely and uselessly. Keeping this in view a mask making competition was organised on the second day and this also received an overwhelming response from the learners who created myriad kinds of masks and impressed everyone with their creativity.

Event 3 of Water Week tested the Innovative Skills along with the skills of Oration and Expression among the Learners. "Walk the Talk" was the name of the competition that brought out the Tech Savvy selves of the students who created videos to spread the ever important message of conserving water.

E–savvy students designed some very beautiful E-logos on 23 July which further strengthened their resolve not to let go the issue of water conservation down the drain. Their imaginative and aesthetic processes won appreciation from everyone.

If one has to explore the dormant journalistic qualities in someone, then age stands no bar to this quality. The creation of stories, poems, articles, puzzles, comic strips and much more by the class VIII learners on July 25, 2020 for the E Journal competition proved this fact right. Some of the creations on this day were actually nail biting and awe inspiring.

What better way to conclude the Water Week than to hold a Brain Testing and Mind Blowing Quiz asking Learners to rub their quizzical senses and answer some of the burning questions on the issue of water shortage and its prevention. The class VIII learners did not fight shy in surprising even in this concluding Competition of the week. We have the Artists, the Quizzers, the Journalists and the Speakers among these budding students. In nutshell, KBDAV-7 was successful in preparing an Army of Water Saviours with this week long practice of instilling the best water habits among its students and of speaking loud the message to the society around.

When faced with the toughest of the times in life, ‘never giving up’ is the only thing that can help sail us through and reach the other side of the tunnel. With this message as the reverberating voice throughout the webinar organised for the students of classes IX to XII, and their parents by KBDAV Senior Secondary Public School, Sector. 7 – B on July 18, 2020, it was once again proved that it is only positive thoughts and actions that help one cut through the testing times. The guest speakers Dr. Arpita Kapur, and anaesthesiologist from ASMO, Civil Hospital, Panchkula, Ms. Anchal Sharma, the counselling psychologist from Fortis, Mohali and Sister B. K. Neha, Rajyoga Teacher, participated in the LIVE WEBINAR ‘ The Art of being Happy’. Whereas Dr. Arpita Kapur spoke at length on the spread of coronavirus and the necessary precautions one must take to avoid contracting it, Ms. Anchal Sharma touched on the psychological aspects of the present situation, and its impact on the students, their parents and teachers alike. Sister B. K. Neha soothed the nerves of the tense students and their parents through her serene discourse and meditation session.

 Dr. Kapur, through her equally impressive PPT presentation, brought awareness regarding the present condition, symptoms and prevention of Coronavirus spread. She also appreciated the process of online teaching that is the ‘in-thing’ now, but warned against its negative impacts if overdone. She told the learners and their parents to take care of ‘A to F’ strategy, which will surely help them to ease out. It is taking care of: Awareness, Break, Cutting down the total gadget time, Diet, Exercise and Family time.

If Dr. Kapur was successful in creating awareness without triggering the panic button, Ms. Anchal Sharma, the counselling psychologist applied the soothing balm on the stressed minds of the students and their parents by dealing with the psychological side. With an interesting PPT presentation, she took the students, parents and teachers for a ride through their levels of mental stress, and the ways of controlling the personal alarming situations. She spoke of three phases that every change brings in: i) the Initial Reaction (Emotional), ii) the Intermediate Reaction (Intellectual), and, iii) the Final Healthy Reaction (Acceptance). She quoted Hellen Keller and Viktor E. Franki to suggest that there is always a space between a stimulus and response to it. We have got to react with patience in that space to finally control our response.

The final sublimation came from the discourse by Sister Neha who patiently answered each question posed to her with an example quoted every time. She alluded the functioning of our brain for example to the working of an Air Conditioner. To use AC to cool or to heat is in our control. So should be the control on our brains. By finding good behind every negativity, by not discussing our insecurities with our loved ones, by welcoming our critics with open arms we can search for the golden rays behind our worries and tensions, she exclaimed. A live session of meditation by her in the webinar brought the students and parents to their better and relaxed selves.

The success of a session is determined by the interest that the attendees take in it. The presence of a mammoth 200 participants, an unending series of queries in the chat box, and an overwhelming applause and thanks by the parents and students alike for the school for organising such an informative webinar took it to its successful culmination.



“It is not the size of a girl in the fight, but the size of the fight in a girl”, and “there is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise”, were two of the many quotes that defined woman power, today in a G-meet where the Principal of KBDAV Senior Secondary Public School, Sector. 7 – B, Chandigarh Mrs. Pooja Prakash, the teachers of the Senior Secondary Wing and the learners of XI had gathered to observe Malala Day and to celebrate the power of womanhood.

A hundred times every day, I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labours of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give, in the same measure, as I have received and am still receiving”.

If we are receiving our essentials in our area today, it’s because of someone who toils day and night to bring them to our doorsteps.

If we find cleanliness and hygiene maintained around our houses, it is they who remove the last speck of dust from our streets.

If we find the garbage lifted from our houses, it’s they, who move from house to house, carrying their lives on their sleeves in these turbulent times, leaving behind a satisfaction of their arrival each day.

If we find the premises of our buildings/offices safeguarded, it is due to the presence of these silent workers.

KBDAV-7, Chandigarh encourages its learners to express their gratitude to all the COVID warriors and its Family of Class IV employees, without whose support things are bound to collapse.  Students of Class XI and Class II shared posters and cards online to express their heart-felt gratitude to these warriors on the occasion of Labour Day .
