“Two great things you can give your children: one is roots, the other is wings.” Hodding Carter.

Being a parent is no less than bliss; however, there can never be a more daunting task than to find a perfect way to parenting. Children learn more from what we are than what we teach. Therefore, it becomes imperative for us as adults to unlearn a few things and learn / acquire many new skills to model the personality we would like our child to be. In keeping with our promise to pro-actively reach out in forms of workshops and seminars we had a powerful orator and a licensed clinical psychologist Ms. Kriti Munjal to conduct the webinar on “Parenting Skills” during pandemic on 30th Jan. 2021 for parents of primary classes. The aim of the workshop was to motivate the parents to create a positive family atmosphere, believe in the concept of listening to their wards and to effectively meet up to any parenting challenge in today’s modern world. The speaker spoke about different parenting styles and how each child is a unique individual on his/her own and not merely an extension of the parents. She spoke about the importance of setting a routine for children and striking the right balance between disciplining a child and giving into his or her emotional needs. A more participative, involved style of parenting will build trusting relationship between the parent, child and the school and will make more secure and mature adults in future. With many questions, doubts and dilemmas being clarified at the workshop, it turned out to be a highly interactive session. The workshop left a grave impact on the minds of parents who already began planning to re-structure their home environments to benefit their children with a complete focus on positive parenting.

"We are not developing nations, we are not developed nations, we are the United Nations.” - Anonymous.

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words. It is a search for syllables to shoot at the barriers of the unknown and the unknowable.

Poetry comes alive through recitation. Recitation is one of the important and effective modes of learning a language and appreciating a piece of literature. The students of our school brought alive the various genres of poetry and exhibited their talent in the Inter Class Recitation Competition held virtually for Classes 8 and 9. The students recited their poems with great fondness and zeal. They enjoyed the perfection of expression, thoughts, emotions, rhythm and music of words. Some of the poems such as ‘The Sailor Who Had Worked At The Slave Trade’, ’Refugee Blues’, ‘I am the People, the Mob, etc. were heart touching and thought provoking. The judges appreciated and applauded the performances of the participants Vanshika Batra of 8-D, Gurbani Kaur of 8-B and Akaisha Arora of 8-D bagged the first, second and third position respectively.

Debating matters because ideas matter. This is the premise of the Debating Matters Competition for students which emphasizes substance, not just style, and the importance of taking ideas seriously. It is an event jointly organized by Academy of Ideas, UK and the British Council, India to which our school, St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Sec. School, had the incredible opportunity to be a part of.

Amidst the pandemic, the competition was piloted through the online medium, with SMGS being a part of group Marigold. The group also consisted of two schools from UK and another from India.

SMGS was scheduled to have one national and two international debates, out of which we emerged victorious in two events. The first debate revolved around the motion - ‘Childhood vaccination should be compulsory’ - was scheduled for the 29th of November against Douglas Academy, Dunbartonshire. Representing us were Khanak Jorwal and Lakshita Chhabra of class XII.

The second team consisting of Garima Sanger and Udita Bhardwaj of class XII, emerged victorious in the second debate on the subject - ‘Populism is a threat to democracy’. The event took place on the 5th of December against Queen Elizabeth Grammar School with our team defending the motion. After the conclusion of the two international debates, the final event took place on the 12th of December against St. Mary’s School, Pune on the issue - ‘Climate Emergency: People should not have more than two children’. The debate augured well for us as Chahat Nihalani and Harshita Kohli of class XII, drove us to a stellar victory. Instrumental in the students’ performances were Ms. Vaneet and Ms. Isha, who constantly provided their mentorship to them.

At the end of this affair, the students find themselves more informed about vital global crises; becoming more tolerant of what the other side has to bring to the plate and learning the art of persuasion in order to address argumentations using conviction and not coercion. Thus, debating topics that matter.

“Education should not be the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” - William Butler Yeats

It is believed that in order to confront the challenges the world faces, people especially the youth need to define issues and develop strategies for action. To create awareness among the students about the functioning of our legislature where all the important laws concerning the nation are formulated, a ‘Mock Parliament’ was conducted for the students of Class-X. The students portrayed some of the members of the Opposition parties and different portfolios of some of the ministers of the ruling party in Lok Sabha. They debated on the recent steps taken by the government on the ‘Banning of Chinese Applications’. The session concluded with a voting for or against the bill. With the ruling party being in majority, the bill was passed successfully. The students gained an insight into the working of the Parliament and learnt how important legislations are passed in a democracy.

World Tobacco Day - (July 2020)
Harmful effects of Tobacco
        Mahika Gupta


‘The tobacco epidemic, one of the biggest public health threats the world has ever faced, kills more than 8 million people a year all over the world.’

In order to know the harmful effects tobacco has on the health and the environment, it is imperative to know what exactly tobacco is. Tobacco is a plant. Its leaves are smoked, chewed, or sniffed for a variety of effects. Tobacco smoke contains more than 7,000 chemicals, at least 70 of which are known to cause cancer. Out of these toxic substances, the most important and dangerous ones are nicotine, carbon monoxide and tar. These substances are responsible for reducing the oxygen level of the blood, leading to shortness of breath, and contain one of the deadliest cancer causing agents known. Tobacco also contains addictive substances, which lead to addiction. Thus, tobacco users find it difficult to leave it.

There are various forms of tobacco intake, such as cigarette, which is the most common form, bidi, cigar, hookah, sheesha, tobacco chewing/sniffing, kreteks (clove cigarettes) and lastly, e-cigarette/vape. Regardless of the form of intake, tobacco consumption causes many health problems and causes a lot of damage to the body, although the degree of damage may vary from one form of intake to another. Some ways in which it harms the body are, by causing poor vision, unhealthy teeth, hair loss, high cholesterol, hearing loss, loss of appetite, persistent coughing, wrinkling skin, etc. It also weakens the immune system and puts the person at a risk of other problems and diseases.. It damages the respiratory system, putting people at a higher risk of chronic lung conditions like emphysema, asthma, chronic bronchitis, tuberculosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (a group of lung diseases and even lung cancer. Not only this, it also damages the cardiovascular system. It raises blood pressure, weakens blood vessel walls, and increases the risk of stroke and heart attack. Tobacco is also associated with cancer of respiratory tract, mouth, skin, lung, liver, pancreas, kidney, blood, urinary bladder, oral cavity, nasal cavity, cervix etc. The use of tobacco temporarily puts one in a good mood, but it leads to dependence and eventually the person starts feeling irritable and anxious. Low emotional stability and risk taking behavior are also more common in tobacco users.

Not only this, tobacco causes a lot of harm to the environment as well. Tobacco growing usually involves substantial use of chemicals, including pesticides, fertilizers and growth regulators. These chemicals may affect drinking water sources as a result of run-off from tobacco growing areas. Tobacco crops deplete soil nutrients by taking up more nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium than other major crops. Besides, cigarette stubs are the most commonly discarded piece of waste globally and are the most frequent item of litter picked up on beaches and water edges worldwide! These contain hazardous chemicals which end up entering the food chain after penetrating into the soil and getting bleached into water.

Electronic cigarettes may contain batteries that require special disposal as well as chemicals, packaging and other non-biodegradable materials, which cause further damage to the environment. Tobacco smoking leads to the emission of 2 600 000 tonnes of carbon dioxide and about 5 200 000 tonnes of methane, thus polluting the air. Last but not least, tobacco growing leads to deforestation as well. This can be elucidated from the fact that tobacco growing caused significant deforestation between 1990 and 1995, amounting to approximately 2000 hectares.

Thus, we’ve seen that tobacco poses a threat to the health as well as the environment. The governments must take considerable measures regarding this. Smoking should be prohibited in all public places, and there shouldn’t be any provision of hookahs and vapes in restaurants and bars as well. There should be an increase in the unit price for tobacco products, which will decrease the number of people using tobacco, reduce the amount of tobacco consumed, and prevent young people from starting to use tobacco. Schools and colleges should educate students and spread awareness, telling how tobacco is harmful for health, and must never be consumed. Parents should also keep a strict check on the activities of their kids, and show them the right path. There should be awareness campaigns and mass media campaigns; posters and hoardings should be put up to educate people. Besides, more and more support groups and rehab centers should come up for all those who need support in stopping its consumption.

By taking broad-based but effective action against the environmental hazards created by the tobacco industry, the demand for tobacco products will be further reduced and with strengthened environmental policies, there will be increased costs for tobacco products, decreased social acceptance of tobacco use and changes in the most commonly used tobacco products.

The governments are slowly taking more and more measures. The fact that ads portraying the ill effect of tobacco consumption on health are shown in cinemas is truly commendable.

Female smokers should also consider the fact that maternal smoking is associated with congenital malformations in the baby, and can cause increased risk of allergies, stunted growth, poor lung function, and higher blood pressure in their child.

The fact that the ‘Smoking kills’ written on a cigarette packet doesn’t seem to have any impact on the user, shows that people need to reform their choices, and that we’re still a long way to go in this fight.

People should look beyond themselves, and should consider the fact that exposure to secondhand smoke carries the same risk to a nonsmoker as someone who does smoke which means, that they’re not only harming themselves, but also those around them. Hence, this battle can only be won if everybody comes together!

Harmful effects of Tobacco on Health and Environment
        Vibhuti Dogra


Not being ‘cool’ in a generation that we exist in is so not okay, right? It has become so imperative that we are ready to risk our lives for the sake of fitting in. But is it really ‘cool’ to be ‘cool’ if we have to put our own lives at stake ?

Tobacco is one such thing that is synonymous with ‘fitting in’, ‘being acceptable’ and obviously our favorite, ‘cool’. Tobacco in layman words are crushed leaves that contain nicotine which is an addictive and noxious substance. People, especially teens, resort to tobacco consumption under peer pressure, stress and anxiety. Peer pressure is the major reason out of the three. Because your friends do it, you do it too as you don’t want to be that friend who is left out when the rest are having fun. Jeopardizing your health, that of people around you and of our dearest mother earth is fun, isn’t it? Perfect example of blind following the blind.

We all are mindful of the harmful effects of Tobacco on our health and the environment’s. But why do we still act oblivious of this fact? Our dear Earth is in an ailing condition. What are we doing to mitigate the same? One of the most prominent factor contributing to the deterioration of our planet’s health is tobacco. Tobacco is found in cigarettes, cigars, bidis, shisha, vapes and is also available in edible forms. Smoking leads to one of the most fatal chronic disease i.e. lung cancer. It doesn’t end here. A short period of frequent smoking causes shortness of breath, fatigue, fertility and virility issues and a weak immune system. The list doesn't end here. The waste from cigarettes exude toxic chemicals into the environment, consequently leading to air, water and land pollution.

Cultivation of tobacco significantly contributes to deforestation and soil erosion. Smoking contributes the most to air pollution. Hence, incessantly plummeting levels of oxygen in the atmosphere.

Do we really realize how it’s going to take a toll on our future generations? Is this planet going to qualify to nurture more humans or are we going to disqualify to nurture the planet? The choice is ours. We cannot evade from the ringing alarm anymore, the warnings that our planet gave us are gradually turning into actuality. It's simply a do or die situation right in front of us. Let's stop deluding ourselves and start taking responsibility for our actions. If we do not save this planet, it won’t save us.

Tobacco use is the single largest preventable cause of disease, disability, and premature death. Statistically, the global tobacco epidemic kills nearly 70 lakh people each year, out of which 13 lakh people die in India alone. Not only does tobacco consumption cause lethal diseases like cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, chronic breathing problems, infertility, oral cavities, TB, and stroke, it is also a major contributor to Covid-19 cases worldwide. Smoking, be it in the form of biddis / cigarettes / sheesha can increase your chances of getting Covid-19 by transferring the virus by bringing your hands to your mouth.

Spreading awareness against the same, through the virtual mode, our students involved themselves in making interactive posters on ‘World No Tobacco Day’, wrote thought provoking essays on ‘Harmful Effects of Tobacco’ and took a pledge to never consume tobacco products.

The initiative sensitised the adolescent minds to keep themselves wary from such substances.

"It's the little conversations that build the relationships and make an impact on each student" - Robert John Meehan.

The early years of a child's life are the most important - a time of rapid development physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally. Pre-primary education is concerned with continuing the balanced overall development of the individual child through learning experiences in both the school and the community.

During these learning experiences the child should observe positive relationships between home and school, parent and teacher. It is through the combined efforts of all those adults that children will be given maximum opportunities to develop and learn in our wonderful school.
India Culture Portal : Mahika Gupta of Class XI, SMS Girls School, Delhi - (June 2020)
A great mystic poet, Kabir Das, is one of the leading spiritual poets in India who has given his philosophical ideas to promote the lives of people. His philosophy of oneness in God and Karma as a real Dharma changed the minds of people towards goodness. His love and devotion towards God fulfill the concept of both Hindu Bhaktism and Muslim Sufism. It is by his wonderful songs, the spontaneous expressions of his vision and his love, and not by the didactic teachings associated with his name, that Kabir makes his immortal appeal to the heart.

INDIA CULTURE PORTAL by Ashmita of Class 12 Humanities - (May 2020)
Rudra Veena (a string instrument) literally means ‘the veena dear to Shiva’. Lord Shiva is also said to have created the Rudra Veena inspired by his wife Parvati. Originating from the Indian sub-continent, it is considered one of the most difficult string instruments played. The instrument has sociological and cultural connotations and dimensions in Indian culture. Saraswati, the goddess of learning is visualized as holding a veena in her hands. Today, the veena is losing its importance to other string instruments. It is interesting to note that nowadays young musicians of our country are trying hard to keep the ethos of the veena alive.

Who could best exemplify the importance of this instrument, but a budding singer like Ashmita Sawhney of Class XII Humanities of St. Marks Girls Senior Secondary School ?

Her report is based on the study from the India Culture Portal, promoted by Ministry of Culture Organizations.

The focus of this interaction was on minimizing examination stress ahead of the Board Examinations. Through inspiring examples of the Indian Cricket team and Chandrayaan 2, the Prime Minister urged students to remain confident with their preparation for the exams, not loose nerve under pressure, learn from their failures and make relevant use of technology for the betterment of our society. He also urged parents and teachers to ‘pursue, but not pressurize the young minds’, by burdening them with unrealistic expectations. The young minds should be given freedom to choose the subjects of their choice, and also maintain a balance between curricular and co-curricular activities.
