From The Principal’s Desk raYS once again is ready to deliver the work carried out by the students at different phases. it’s an admiration to the students to get their work noted and as well appreciated. life is not a bed of roses, one has to strive hard to get success, it’s not only the teacher’s who have to strive hard, but dear students you must put your entire effort to put things on right track. it’s always your will, determination and your teachers’ hard work which can bring success to you. never be afraid of failure as it is a stepping stone to success, those who work hard they can only enjoy the nectar of success. opportunity knocks only once, wise are they who grab it. once gone it hardly comes back. You will never have a day that became history again your life. i admire the efforts put forward by the parents who remain a guiding light in their ward’s life. brighton puts all the efforts to mould the students to the best what they can ever be. Wishing you all a Merry christmas and a wonderful 2016 ahead.

I Believe……. i believe that life is there to enjoy i believe you should give people chances i believe you should treat people the same because you never know what they will do for you in the future i believe hope is something everyone needs. i believe that money cannot buy happiness i believe books can take you any where i believe that true friends will last a lifetime. i believe parents are more important than you think. i believe that you have to love yourself before you can love others.

Emptiness... When your life is empty, and you are alone, You need someone but you only mourn When you want to dance and play What is in your head you want to say? You want to jump and hop But all you feel at the moment is life’s a flop When you want to find a soul Who will play your angel’s role?

i believe records are made to be broken.

emptiness is a disease you dread.

i believe brothers and sisters are made to teach togetherness.

but still my friend

i believe that being popular is not the key to life. i believe pets are great because they listen and love you no matter what you look like Hema Jumrani (Viii a)

that’s not the end raise above all this life’s beautiful Something just you can’t miss. Zeba Afrin Viii-a

GRAND FATHER’S CHERRY BLOSSOM an old couple lived in a little village in Japan. they were poor but content, they were childless. one morning the old woman found a small white puppy, akita, the native Japanese Dog, whimpering in one of the vegetable patches in the garden. ”look what i found!“ she told her husband. the couple decided to bring him up like the son they never had. Whenever they made rice cakes or fish shiro got his share first. He grew into a sturdy, smart Dog. One afternoon,the old man heard shiro barking excitedly .When he went out to see what the matter was, Shiro ran to him and tugged at his Kimono. the Dog then ran to a tree in the yard and began digging furiously. the old man fetched a spade to help Shiro. together they unearthed a cache of old gold coins buried deep in the ground. the oldman and his wife gathered up the coins. they would never be needy again. When someone said that he was very lucky, indeed the old man who shared his wealth with all the villagers pointed to Shiro and said “i am lucky to have him as my son. Years later Shiro died. the couple was grief-striven. they buried him in the yard and planted a pine tree over it. the tree grew rapidly. one day the old woman said “why don’t you cut some wood of the pine tree? We can make a mortar out of it and pound some rice for the cakes Shiro loved so much. ”the man did as she wished and they made a mortar. When they pounded the steaming rice in the mortar, it began overflowing and didn’t stop! They fed the whole village with it. the Samurai lord’s son got to hear of the mortar and confiscated it, but it wouldn’t work its magic for him. In a fit of anger, the lout burned the mortar to ashes. When the old man heard of this, he was very sad. he went to the castle and collected the ashes. he was scattering the ashes in the garden when a gust of wind blew some of it on to the bare cherry trees growing nearly. it was winter but when the ashes touched the trees,they burst into blossom ! the old man scattered the ashes all over the village wherever there were cherry trees and they blossomed in a mission of red, white and pink! everyone was amazed and the old man became known as ‘grandfather cherry blossom”.the samurai lord heard of this and summoned the old man. he got the ashes scattered over the barren trees in the castle garden too. he was astonished when the trees bloomed. he apologized for his son that he would be suitably punished. the samurai lord showered the old couple with presents and wished them many more years of happiness. Retold by-Suyash Chandrakar (Viii-b), brighton international school.

What’s Life… life’s a guiding ray, Which let success come our way, life’s a hope, very long, like a rope, very strong. to failures life is a dream, Which never come true. neither in their minds nor in their soul, these people ever grow. Successors in life never weep, because as they sow, so shall they reap. life’s vast, running fast, irrespective of every caste. life’s what you make of it, allow success to be always with you, let it not come bit by bit. Khushi Chandra class Viii-a

More germs are transferred from shaking hands than Kissing. 5. Aztecs sacrificed 15000 men a year to appease their sun god. 6. cows are incapable of putting their lips together to make sound like humans. So they actually utter “ooooo” instead of “mooooo”. 7. it would take 70000 years for a modern spaceship to get to the star nearest to earth. Aryan Class Vii-b
