When the vision is one year, Cultivate flowers. When the vision is ten years, Cultivate trees. When the vision is eternity, Cultivate people. - Chinese Saying Vision is a very powerful tool that we are blessed with. It describes what we can see with our eyes, but it also tells us about what we can visualize with our mind and intellect. How we visualize life depends on how far and how clearly we can look into our future and ourselves. Eyes in our heart makes us strong and aware of our duties. It helps us handle situations well. We can all cultivate flowers, trees and people. Try, and you'll feel good.

People generally like to dress in colours according to their moods. This further quantifies the fact that colours affect human psychology. Colours also have a role to play in human development as babies respond better to soothing colours for rooms but bright objects of use. Colours also used in therapies and treatments. Different people react differently to different colours depending both on personal preferences and cultural backgrounds. Different colours have different meanings. So let's have look at that: BLUE: Peace, harmony, security, truth and even depression. BLACK: Power,elegance and sophistication. Also evil, unhappiness and death. GREEN: Nature, youth and good luck, jealously, inexperience and misfortune. RED: Love, desire, strength and danger. ORANGE: Warmth, enthusiasm and vibrancy. PURPLE: Royalty, mystery, wisdom, cruelty and arrogance. WHITE: Perfection, purity and innocence. YELLOW: Joy, hope, optimism, happiness, cowardice, betrayal and dishonesty.

Have you ever wondered how colourful our world is? Red, Blue, black, purple, orange, yellow there is such immense variety of colours in nature that it never fails to mesmerize our eyes.

Scientifically speaking, colour is the visual perceptual property corresponding to humans.

We fail to Brinda Sen, Class - XI notice that our liking or disliking any particular thing is largely dependant on the colour of that thing. We mostly underestimate the fact that they have a great influence in our day to day psychology. So without us realizing, colours have a profound impact on us. Some colours can cheer us up while others let us down. In fact some people are also phobic to certain colours! Most people have a favourite colour and most people will have their own ideas on how colours should be used. Colours can act very decisively in our lives. The flowers we like, our clothes, interiors, even at times the food we eat seem to be dominated by a particular colour. This particular trait reflects a lot on who we are. They help us not only to make a statement, but also to reinvent oneself spiritually. Like, a person preferring black might be elegant while somebody liking pink is romantic.

TWILIGHT SERIES Stephenie Meyer (born Dec 24, 1973), is an American author best known for her Vampire Romance series, Twilight. The Twilight novels have gained worldwide recognition and sold over 100 million copies globally, with translation into 37 languages. Twilight is a series of four vampire-based fantasy romance novels by American author Stephenie Meyer. It charts a period in the life of Isabella "Bella" Swan, a teenage girl who moves to Forks, Washington, and falls in love with a 104 year old vampire named Edward Cullen. Twilight: Bella Swan moves from Phoenix, Arizona to live with her father in Forks, Washington to allow her mother to travel with her new husband, a minor league baseball player. After moving to Forks, Bella finds herself involuntarily drawn to a mysterious, handsome boy, Edward Cullen. She eventually learns that he is a member of a vampire family who drinks animal blood rather than human. Edward and Bella fall in love but James, a sadistic vampire from another coven, is drawn to hurt down Bella. Edward and the other Cullens defend Bella. She escapes to Phoenix, Arizona, where she is tricked into confronting James, who tries to kill her. She is seriously wounded, but Edward rescues her and they return to Forks, having killed James.

The arctic fox is an incredibly hardy animal that can survive frigid Arctic temperatures as low as -58째F (-50째C) in the treeless lands where it makes its home. It has furry soles, short ears, and a short muzzle-all-important adaptations to the chilly clime. Arctic foxes live in burrows, and in a blizzard they may tunnel into the snow to create shelter. Arctic foxes have beautiful white (sometimes blue-gray) coats that act as very effective winter camouflage. The natural hues allow the animal to blend into the tundra's ubiquitous snow and ice. When the seasons change, the fox's coat turns as well, adopting a brown or gray appearance that provides cover among the summer tundra's rocks and plants. These colourings help foxes to effectively hunt rodents, birds, and even fish. But in winter prey can be scarce on the ground. At such times, arctic foxes will follow the region's premier predator-a polar bear-to eat the leftover scraps from its kills. Foxes will also eat vegetables when they are available. Like a cat's, this fox's thick tail aids its balance. But for an arctic fox the tail (or "brush") is especially useful as warm cover in cold weather. Female arctic foxes give birth each spring to a large litter of up to 14 pups Kaustav Moni Mazumdar, Class-VIII

MY FOOT FELL ASLEEP

THE WORLD'S FASTEST BICYCLE

My bicycle's the fastest that the world has ever seen; it has supersonic engines and a flame-retardant sheen. My bicycle will travel a gazillion miles an hour -it has rockets on the handlebars for supplemental power. The pedals both are jet-propelled to help you pedal faster, and the shifter is equipped with an electric turbo-blaster.

My foot fell asleep right inside of my shoe from sitting around having nothing to do. It hadn't drank warm milk nor tried to count sheep; it just wasn't busy, and fell right asleep.

MY TURTLE IS THE SPORTING SORT My turtle is the sporting sort. His sports are all extreme. He got so good at sleeping that he joined the napping team.

He races other turtles, seeing who can come in last. I hope you weren't expecting that my turtle would be fast.

My bicycle's incredible! I love the way it feels, and I'll like it even more when Dad removes the training wheels.

He's not too fond of motion, so you'll never see him run. He only plays the kinds of sports that turtles think are fun.

You see, in my shoe it gets lonely and boring, which made my foot sleepy, and soon it was snoring. My foot snored so loudly my shoe began flapping. But it didn't notice -it kept right on napping! It slept through the morning and most of the day, despite that my other foot wanted to play. It took a siesta. It slumbered inert. It nodded through dinner. It dozed through dessert.

He frequently competes at moving slowly in the yard, and, recently, he's got the hang of staring very hard.

The fender has a parachute in case you need to brake. Yes, my bike is undeniably the fastest one they make.

Now I'm in my bed and I've been up all night. I'm trying to sleep, although try as I might, my foot slept all day (what a foolish mistake!) now I can't fall asleep 'cause my foot's wide awake!

LAWN TENNIS

Find differences between the two cartoons!

HOW TO HIT THE BASIC SERVE The basic serve shown here is a complete tennis serve with all of the same elements that a top pro would use, except for intentional spin. Some players naturally hit spin if they learn the basic serve with a Continental grip, but many players find it easier to learn with an Eastern forehand grip, in which case they're more likely to hit the ball flat (without spin). At any given speed, flat serves don't have as much clearance over the net as do serves hit with some topspin, so it's worth trying to use the Continental grip first. If you take to it well, you'll be hitting a mixture of topspin and sidespin (slice) pretty soon, and you'll be well on your way to an advanced serve. If you find the Continental grip too awkward, though, it's okay to start with the Eastern grip. In learning how to serve, spin is much less important than the many other factors we're about to discuss. These are the most important points to observe in this photo: Left foot points more or less toward the right net post. Right foot parallel to the baseline. Ball held in fingertips.

Once upon a time there lived two hunters. They basically used to kill dolphins. One day they went to the sea for hunting dolphins. They went to the middle of the sea in a boat which was very weak to carry two people. There was a big wave and the boat sank along with the two hunters. The hunters began to scream and shouted for help. But there was no one nearby and they began to drown. Some of the dolphins saw them drowning and went near them. Suddenly there came a shark and tried to attack them. The dolphins did not allow t h e shark to eat the men. Disappointed, the shark went back. The dolphins carried the men to the seashore when the men awoke they found themselves in the seashore. Some of the men nearby who saw the dolphins bringing them told them about the dolphins. They were ashamed and promised themselves that they would never hunt the dolphins again.

"PUT THESE CLOTHES IN THE CUPBOARD"

"Put these clothes in the cupboard" I shouted to my old enemy, Lala bai. I couldn't even begin to explain how much I hated her. She never ever did her work on time, especially when I was in a tearing hurry and her most infuriating trait was her plain loathing for Nelson, my beloved canine super-hero (so what it he gave her red blotches and sneeze fits from a mile away!). A day wouldn't pass without her shooing us from the terrace with an intimidating broomstick just as we're about to lay our hands on those delectable mango pickles. Oh! She deserved the gallows!! She busted our hideout in the attic, snitched to Ma about my misadventures with milk, pretended to shriek with absolute disgust when she found Woopy, my frog, in a kitchen jar ( I had to give him up after she feigned a heartattack!) and so reads her list of misdeeds. I was lost in dreams of a befitting pay back when.… Ding dong!! The front door sounded. Certain that my troops had arrived, I rushed onwards only to be caught in endless tangles of clothes that were scattered all over the carpet. I struggled with sarees, dupattas and miles of inane ladies' gear. By the time I escaped I was next to desperation. I got up with some difficulty and found my mother facing me. "Lala bai, you had better put the clothes in the cupboard before Sam and his friends create a mess and give the pickles out to dry, please." I was left dumbstruck. Was this Mom's idea of a joke? But a painful look at the mirror assured me that this was as real as it could get. I was Lala bai!! My friends marched past me with their usual 'We-hate-Lala'smirk. They didn't recognize me either. This was just like one of those nightmarish body-swapping movies. I decided to stay calm and play along. I had to finish the horrendously boring job of stacking clothes in the cupboard. With sweat dripping all over, I managed to stash most of them away when horror of horrors, I found them all in a massive heap back on the ground. I turned round to look at the devilishly grinning faces of my friends. I had fallen prey to my own teachings. Alas! I had painstakingly clambered on to the terrace and had barely managed to lay the pickles out to dry, when I saw my friends relishing their lip smacking loot, having stolen the pickles from behind my back! Then I went inside and decided to take rest because I was tired. I was about to turn on the television to see my favourite cartoon but mom told me to water the plants in the garden. Sulkily, I started watering the plants and wasn't really having a bad time when the wind carried my circumstantial foes whispers and giggles to me. I was convinced that they were up to no good and tried to think which prank they would play next. Before I had time to gather my senses, I found myself sprawled on the wet ground, Nelson happily licking away at me. It might have been a joyous moment of reunion for dog and man had I not been Lala bai. Aaaaaaachooooo!!I started sneezing uncontrollably and what was worse, I was itching all over! Nelson wouldn't budge though I kept yelling, "Get away from me! GET AWAY!!" When I finally opened my eyes I found my friends peering down at me with queer looks on their faces. I was still spread-eagled on the ground but inside the house, on the carpet with lots of clothes in disarray all around me. So it was a nightmare after all! I got up from the mess and bounded outside with my friends, happy to be me. Lala bai was in the garden trying to tackle the hose pipe that kept spraying water all over the place except where it was supposed to-on the plants. I thought about the weird discomfort of knowing how it felt to be Lala bai…….. and let Nelson loose over her!! Again? Well, yeah! After all, bygones are supposed to be bygones, right??

ABOUT SUALKUCHI CMYK

Sualkuchi, a village in the Kamrup district has been developed over the years as a major centre for commercial production of these indigenous fabrics especially the Pat and Muga silk. Sualkuchi is famous as the ‘Manchester of Assam’ and was established by Momai Tamuli Barbarua, a great administrator of the Ahom kingdom during the reign of Swargadeo Pratap Singha (1603-1641). Shri Barbarua set up this weaver’s village by shifting a large number of master-weavers from all over the region to that village. This patronage led to the advancement and development of sericulture in Assam. This picturesque village on the banks of the river Brahmaputra is about 32 kms from Guwahati. Sualkuchi has a population of nearly 50,000 people, most of who are engaged in weaving magic on their looms. This village has an estimated 25,000 handlooms and produces nearly six million metres of white and golden Assam silk annually. SUALKUCHI IN HISTORY Sualkuchi an ancient craft village-having silk-rearing and weaving communities, potters, goldsmiths and oil pressures. While silk-rearing vanished long time ago, the gani industry perished during the early the part of the last century as the ‘Mudois’ of Sualkuchi used to sell mustered seeds to the mill of Guwahati. Pottery and gold-smithy have also vanished and the ‘Kumars’ and goldsmiths have undertaken more income yielding weaving besides other professions. The history of Sualkuchi was traced elsewhere by this writer to the 4th century BC on the basis of Kautilya’s reference to Suvarnakudya of ancient Kamrupa where the best quality of Patrorna (pat) was produced. This Suvarnakudya of Arthasastra was probably known later on as Swarnakuchi- a village now in the bed of the Brahmaputra after the angle like bent of the river at Agiathuri was straightened towards Hatimura by Chilarai in 1562 (and the river by side of Hajo gradually dried up) and the name Sualkuchi /Soalkuchi is guessed to be derived from Swarnakuchi which in turn might have been derived from Suvarnakudya mentioned by Kautilya. The antiquity of Sualkuchi is also proved by the Asam Buranji by Gunabhiram Barua according to which the Basarioya (Basattar Gharia) Brahmins of Sualkuchi were granted land by one king Dharmapal probably of the 10th century AD. Three chronicles also testify that three was a Tanti community who were weaving silk cloth and Momai Tamuli Bezbarua and some other Ahom officials were punished by the Ahom King Pratap Singha for removing some Tanti families in 1636 to other places CMYK during the second phase of the AhomMughal war.
