Duty to Achieve #zero hunger 2030 It is rightly said ‘if you believe you can achieve’. And duty towards own country is part of our moral attribute and as a citizen of country people should perform all the individual responsibilities .Being a citizen of India , our first and foremost duty is to eliminate malnutrition and make India a healthy nation by building up sustainable food systems , by ending the systems of rural poverty, by taking steps to control wastage of food and all this would happen when we access adequate food and healthy diet. As a country like India, every citizen has both privilege and duties and this is a country which believes in unity in diversity where all the people are together as one nation and I believe this make India stand out among all the nations but as India is developing, it is taken off by many issues from pollution to malnutrition to many more. Achieving zero hunger by 2030 is one of the main sustainable developmental goals which require unity with lot of determination and commitment from individuals. Some of the measurements that can be taken to achieve zero hunger are:  By 2030, increasing productivity will help to maintain ecosystem that will build up capacity for adaptation to climate change, drought, flooding and other disasters that improve land quality.  Controlling population growth will lead to zero hunger as increase in population increases the demand of food which gives unending rise to the production of food – which is a burning problem in India. Excess population and less production led to hunger in the nation, so we need to increase production by working in agriculture efficiently e.g. before 25 years

we won’t be getting good amount of production in India and hunger was at its peak, because at that time almost 30% agriculture land was in vain but today our country is developing day by day, increasing production simultaneously will at the end make our country zero hunger by 2030.  Introducing use of modern technology for production will progressively increase demand for production, impact of technology in agriculture have increased all the levels to feed the people. Around 70% food production has been increased due to these modern technologies.  Irrigated agriculture will also lead to food production, globally irrigated agriculture is practiced on 83% of cultivated agriculture and supplies more than 60% of worlds food.  Changing life style and modifying our food system will help transform the nation as in a wedding or in a social gathering, the usage of food is too much and tons of food is wasted, leaving extra food as waste is a normal routine for a country like India, we need not to throw that away instead give it to poor that will also lead to a zero hunger nation in the future. Reducing food waste will not only help in getting a healthy nation but also reduces the need to increase food production to meet the demand of growing population in future. According to UN report, every year nearly one-third of all foodstuff intended for human consumption is thrown out which needs to be controlled in the coming years. By: Mufti Mehtab Class : 10th F

"Tears behind her smile". Though the smile was shown But the happiness was fake; What if tears were hidden Wasn't the pain real?; She was badly broken inside,but What others saw was a strong stone; She shouted in her own heart And kept finding peace in her mind; She prayed for ways around So got trapped on the island i had made; With night,sun faded With morning,the moon and the stars too; And yesterday faded with her today Maybe today also with her tomorrow; But something was there, that would never go Was it her pain or something else!!! Would that stay forever?

~Farheen Qadri (10th F)

Thorns Soo dare grasp my thorns and not petals, Dare to touch my harsh thorns instead of the soft petals. Dare to feel the beauty due to the thorns. How come my petals are the one's you desire

and the thorns not. Is it the fear to be bloodshed to hold me with my thorns, To know my inside painful reality, To know on which i grow upon, To know on which i struggle within. So,dare grasp my thorns and not petals. Dare to grasp my thorns and be bloodshed and still fancy me with them and not just the soft petals which wither among the way. Because,my then harsh thorns have made my now soft petals. So, it is the petals on the outside and thorns on the inside.
