Dr. Sanjay Malpani’s vision regarding how students need to be coincided with my vision. This inspired me to take up the role of the Principal of Dhruv Global School. What is your vision for the school? Every child needs to be independent and self-disciplined. We are aiming at a holistic educational experience to create confident individuals and good human beings who will be valued members of society. Students should give their best towards academics. Dhruv should be the alma mater of the students who are well-equipped to bring about the dawn of a more powerful and economically strong nation. What did you like to do as a student? I was an active child, keen gymnast, swimmer and a professional Bharatanatyam dancer. I loved reading and was a Head Girl and a House Captain at school as well as a Class Prefect during college. I also led my college debate team. What were your dreams as a child? Did you ever think they would be fulfilled? I wanted to go into a profession where I would be able to interact with a lot of people. I never gave serious thought to it, but I wanted to do something interesting. It was a very nebulous dream initially, later it took shape. Whom did you consider your role model? When I was a very young girl, I admired Mrs. Indira Gandhi for her absolute confidence and powerful leadership. Later, as I grew up, I understood the value addition of certain personalities. People like Sudha Murthy, Ratan Tata (I find his people to be the epitome of the best HR practices), Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam are some of the other personalities I still respect. These stalwarts have given a new direction, a sense of purpose to the young minds not only by thier words but by living what they preached. I also consider my mother, Mrs. Saroj Sharma as my role model for her never-ending spirit. Which subject did you like the most and why? My favourite subject was Biology and especially, Zoology as I was fond of experiments and dissection. Now we have understood that we should not hurt someone and so dissections have stopped. What things are you planning to implement in the school? Every child should be self-disciplined. I would like Dhruvians to ensure that they have the latest technology available to them. However, I would also like to ensure that Dhruvians interact with as many people as possible because, until you don’t know about the world and what it has to offer, you cannot find yourself. Do you have any siblings? What kind of bond do you share? Yes, I have two siblings. I am the eldest. My younger brother is a doctor in the Indian Army and my younger sister is a doctor too. Being the eldest, I was like a mother figure for them. I have guided them and have always ensured that they had me to fall back on. What do you expect Dhruvians to be? Dhruvians should be good human beings and above all, they should believe in themselves and shouldn’t be afraid to take chances. They should not hesitate to experiment, understand the difference between good and bad, be self-disciplined, self-dependent and full of life. They should enjoy every facet of life. Would you like to give any message to your students? Be the best version of yourself! Don’t be under any pressure to be like someone else. The path, challenges, choices, decisions are your own, so the success belongs to you. As the dreams and visions are yours, the success that comes to you will be yours too.

    ARTICLES

    I joined the school a little late. However, the second I saw this huge and beautiful school filled with happiness, I knew I wanted to join and be a part of the Dhruv family. On the first day, I was too shy to speak with anyone. But because of my teachers, it was fun even though I was too shy. However, on the next day, I felt calmer and confident. I started talking to my classmates. Every day after that day, I was enjoying and was thrilled and excited to go to school. The classes and the subjects we were learning were really fun as our amazing teachers would come up with some exciting ways of learning with everyday examples. The teachers would help us no matter what and we never learned just from the book. Our teachers would always find an easier way to teach us and make us learn and understand the chapters in interesting ways. I have always been interested in sports and I got to play sports I like the most. It was never an easy task to play as our teachers always made us cross our limits, to make us reach new heights. However, it was fun to learn new sports. It taught me to face many types of

    situations. At first, we started with less equipment, but now we are playing all sports with the best of equipment. Our teachers help us in art, playing a guitar and table-tennis to master these activities. Our activity teachers take it slow while teaching, but they make us master the art. We all kept the competitive spirit alive even when we had to play against each other. I became the House Captain of the ‘Jnana House’ and it is an honour to be a part of the Student Council with our teachers guiding us all the way to achieve great heights. A big thank you to them for always being so helpful and cheerful!

    Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking (January 8, 1942 to March 14, 2018) was a British scientist, professor and author who did ground-breaking work in Physics and Cosmology and whose books helped to make science accessible to everyone. At 21, while studying cosmology at the University of Cambridge, he was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). A part of his life was depicted in the 2014 film ‘The Theory of Everything.’Stephen Hawking’s BooksOver the years, Stephen Hawking wrote or co-wrote a total of 15 books. A few of the most noteworthy include-A Brief History of TimeThe Universe in a NutshellA Briefer History of TimeThe Grand Design

    It gives us a great pleasure to write about school’s advancement in the very first newsletter of Dhruv Global School, Pune. We have seen the rise of the school from scratch to the present colossal campus. The world-class splendid Spanish architecture of the school together with in-house sports facilities like badminton, swimming pool and indoor games are marvellous. Throughout this opening year, everything regarding academics and administration was well-planned, well-organised and promptly executed. The first Annual Day function was absolutely professional. We noticed the sincere efforts of organisers to bring all the students on the stage.As parents, we are delighted to see the versatile development of our daughters Ayushi and Aaruhi and want to acknowledge the massive efforts of efficient teachers behind this. Friendly nature of the staff members especially the Principal, Mrs. Rautji should be explicitly mentioned. The school’s book reading programme needs particular appreciation, which is undoubtedly unique and inculcates reading habit in students. This innovative activity has really inspired our daughters. We hope the school will achieve more and more academic endeavours in the coming years like the Sangamner branch and progress towards the best CBSE school in Pune. We are pleased that our daughters are in the best hands. Thank you for being an excellent educator!

    We organised an Annual Day with a fantastic fanfare on 9th February 2019 in the school premises. We introduced the theme with the voices of our soul through this humble effort - “HEAL THE EARTH”. The entire skit, from start to end, was magical and enthralling. It was followed by creative visuals, powerful music and drama. We enjoyed a mesmerising ‘Sand Art,’ the practice of modelling sand into an artistic form.

    ARTICLES

    14th February 2019 - the day when India was torn apart with the gruesome terrorist attack on an army convoy, wherein 44 soldiers were martyred. This day made the entire nation mourn deeply and caused a great disturbance. Not only in India but the news has reached to all parts of the world. Now almost all the people have got used to daily messages, posts and videos regarding a fight back. When I got to know about this excruciating news, I too felt very sad. That night, my mind was captured by many grave and petrified thoughts. “Why does Pakistan always attack India?” Yes, because it’s our enemy. And Pakistan became our enemy after the India-Pakistan separation. “But why did the two countries get separated?” Due to the fights between the religions. And because of this, these countries became sworn enemies of each other and that’s why we have to face these attacks and wars. Man’s actions are the only cause of man’s sorrow. If we would not have created any groups in society, we would not have fallen into the current situation. How happy the world would be if we would live as a human being instead of holding any religious groups and discrimination! Just by imagining this, one can feel the peace and satisfaction in life. There should be no way of discriminating each other and everyone would be equal. Just the perfect life! This is all simple to imagine but difficult to work on. One can’t go in the past and change the present. But one can change the thoughts and work upon them in reality to unite the world. The people in all countries are the same, but it is us as humans who follow all the discrimination amongst us. But there is still time to stop this. We need to start from ourselves if we want to bring a change and slowly the world will be as we imagine it. We need to change ourselves for a united world and a better future!

    Towards a United World and a Better Future

    Chinmayee Alandkar VII

    I may not have been here for the first day, but just the experiences that I’ve had filled my heart with joy. I was not always the kind of person I am today, you would know if you would have met me before. I was extremely shy and mostly kept to myself. I had maybe two or three friends whom I talked to daily. I would never speak my heart out even if I wanted to. My teachers were always complaining that I did not socialise much. Honestly, when I look back at who was now, I’m kind of worried for the old Aditi. I can freely say with no regrets that Dhruv Global School is the best thing which has ever happened to me. I am friends with all of the students here, I finally know what I want to become when I grow up, I am much more confident. I never used to dance at birthday parties, now I pull all my other friends to the dance floor, even my vocal teacher from the class which I go to noticed that I was more confident about my singing. I had the most amazing experiences here. All of us went for a singing competition, I planted trees for the first time in my life at Chordia farms, I got to know so much more about this wonderful earth we call home, we participated in a quiz and so many other exciting things. To talk about the activities, I absolutely love them! It is such a great concept and it’s not just boring things like what used to be in my earlier school, there are rock climbing and shooting! Which kind of school has that!? It is mind-blowing! Here’s your answer; our dream school. I am very proud of myself and you should be proud of yourself too. You know why? Because we all are DHRUVIANS!

    ARTICLES

    I am hurt, I am shocked, I am sadForty soldiers laid in a pool of blood

    Parents lost their sons Wives, their husbandsSisters, their brothersChildren, their fathers

    They took a long sleep never to come.

    Be it snowyBe it rainy

    High on the mountains Or in the hot deserts

    Day and night, they protect the border.

    They fight with enemies They fight with terrorists

    They fight with the weatherThey fight with situations

    Life really is hard for all the soldiers.

    I salute their bravery I salute the martyrs

    I salute their sacrifices I salute their courage

    I pray to God, may they rest in peace.

    We don’t want UriWe don’t want Pathankot

    We don’t want KargilWe don’t want Pulwama

    May soldiers’ bullets finish the terror.

    A Tribute to Martyrs

    Vrishin Awachat

    What is life? The question came to my mind.

    How do we live life? Was the next one that arrived.

    To find the answers to them, I had to study hard for days.

    Here are a few which I admired, Different people have found different ways.

    Life is a great challenge,A challenge to survive. Go ahead and accept it,

    Keep on working and strive.

    Life is a moving bicycle,Where you need balance to live.

    You can maintain this, If you get and give.

    Life is a circle of deeds,And a record of your doings.

    Good or bad, whatever they can be,Live your life and keep going.

    Life is like a one-time offer,Don’t miss anything for it.

    Search happiness in everything,But don’t forget to enjoy it.

    Live your life in your way, I will live mine.

    But let’s conclude together,Our life is divine.

    What is life?

    A Brief History of the Universe in Seven Steps

    Quirky Facts about the Universe

    The empty space around us and everything that exists in this space including the galaxies, stars, the Milky Way is known as the universe. The estimated age of the universe is 14 billion years. There are about 100 billion galaxies and each galaxy have stars ranging from ten million to 1 trillion.The overall density of the universe is only about 9.9 10-30 grams/cm cube. The mass-energy appears to consist of 73% dark matter.The properties of dark matter and dark energy are largely unknown.In the past, these galaxies were closer to each other and if we move further back in time, we will find that the universe was merely a point. This gave rise to the famous Big Bang Theory of the origin of the universe.

    1. 14 billion years ago, the universe exploded into existence from a tiny concentration of matter and energy known as the singularity.2. Within three minutes of the Big Bang, the centres of atoms called atomic nuclei formed subatomic particles.3. After 300,000 years, the matter was evident and coalesced into particles which later formed the building blocks of galaxies, stars, planets, and life itself.

    4. 12 billion years ago, the first galaxies came into existence. Light blazing from the stars within these galaxies illuminated the darkness of the early universe.

    5. 11 billion years ago, a huge cloud of helium and hydrogen gases reacted to form the stars of our own galaxy, the Milky Way.6. 5 billion years ago, the Sun formed the solar system from rocks and ice attracted by its gravitational field.7. 3.8 billion years ago, our planet Earth came into existence which lies in the appropriate spot - neither too far from the sun nor too close.
