Trip to Godavari– Caesarina Udaya 6,”B”

On 14th Feb 2012, we the students of Grade 6 (A & B) went to the Godavari. First of all we went on the bus. Then the 6 A came after us, we were a bit forward and they were late. Singing, laughing, joking we reached to Godavari. There we learnt about bee keeping. Bees are small insects which are very active and are very hard working. They have five eyes, one head, thorax and a stinger. There are three types of bees according to their work. They are: 1. Queen 2. Drone and 3. Worker bee. In Godavari, a type of bee named “apiserana” is cultivated. The work of drone bee is to eat and mate. Queen bee lay eggs and takes care of them and worker bee does the overall works of the hive. The people of that place reared bees for demonstration purpose. They take care of bees by leaving them in an open place and cheating them in every 15 minutes. A clean, open, and flowered area is suitable for bee keeping.

After we saw and learned how the bees are kept, we were hungry too. So, we went to sit in the shade behind the Greenhouse. We divided over selves into groups and we had our lunch. Again we went to bus and again singing, laughing, dancing we went back to school again.

Our Excited Trip to WEPCO– Manisha Shrestha 6,”A”

6th September was an exciting and interesting day for me. I and my classmates went to WEPCO, Women Environment Preservation Committee located at Kupandole and Central Zoo at Jawalakhel. First, we reached WEPCO and went to see Pit Composting. We saw a large plastic where the bottles were kept. Then, we ventured to paper recycling and bio gas plant. The supervisor of WEPCO elaborated everything about the solid waste management process. He said that the plastic or paper can’t be kept in the compost soil pit. Waste materials like vegetables and their peals are dumped there. According to him, they turn into soil after they decay. We understand that we can also make soil manure from the wastes we have at school and home. Food can also be recycled. We also knew the classification of solid waste and its management. At last, the president of WEPCO Mrs. Bishnu Thakali gave the orientation about the WEPCO office and its programmes. Really, the programme was very fruitful to us. It enabled us to manage the solid wastes of school and our homes. Later, we went to paper recycle zone. We collected A4 size papers, newspapers and others and they were kept at the big bucket upto 24 hours. Then, they keep the wet paper into the bitter machine. The papers are cut into pieces. Later, those are dried and turn out ready to use. I was much surprised to see that how the wastes that we throw away at garbage can be well recycled and reused. After wards, we headed to Central Zoo, Jawalakhel. We got the chance of getting information about the history of zoo and its current and upcoming programmes. We knew very well about the caring of captive animals and its methodologies provided by the officials. After that, we entered into the zoo and observed many species of animals and birds. Then, we were assembled in birds’ section for our lunch. It was our pleasure that we got the chance to play the games inside the zoo complex provided by the offi cials. For all these programmes, we should not forget to extend thanks to our teachers who provided such opportunity and we hope such programmes in the days to come too. It really broadens our mind and knowledge. Thanks!

Dashain– Shikha Dhamala 7,”A”

Dashain is one of the most important and greatest festivals of Hindus. It is also called Bada Dashain, Dashahara, Durga Puja and Kali Puja. The goddess Durga is worshipped in this festival. It is observed for fi fteen days in the month of Aswin. All the educational institutions, governmental and non governmental organizations remained closed during this period.

Dashain is celebrated as the greatest and the national festival in the context of our country. According to Hindu mythology, goddess Bhagawati, the goddess of power, was able to kill Mahishashur, the symbol of evil. There is another mythology in Hindu epic that it has been running in practice of celebrating, since Ram, the prince of Ayodhya, killed the demon, Rawan. It is believed that Dashain is celebrated t commemorate Ram’s victory over Rawan and Bhagawati’s victory over Mahishashur. The mythology encourages us to celebrate Dashain as the good gets victory and the evil is ultimately ruined.

This festival is generally celebrated for fifteen days. However, all days are not equally important. It starts with Ghatasthapana. During this, people sow seeds of corns to be used as blessing seedlings on the tenth day which is also termed as Jamara. Since Ghatasthapana, goddess Durga is worshipped for nine days and nights. This is why, it is also called ‘Navaratri’. The seventh day is also called ‘Saptami’ or ‘Fulpati’. On this day, fl owers are brought from Gorkha Durbar to Hanuman Dhoka in Kathmandu. The eighth and the ninth day are Maha Asthami and Maha Nawami respectively. During these days, people sacrifi ce animals to the name of goddess Durga. All villages, towns and cities are in festive mood. People wear new clothes and eat festive dishes. The tenth day is called Vijaya Dashami. It is the time of showing goodwill. It is regarded as the suspicious time. On this day, seniors bless their junior relatives, family members putting Tika and Jamara. It goes continuously to the day of Kojagrath Purnima, which is the last day of Dashain.

Dashain is the time to share happiness. People send greetings to one another wishing for the progress and prosperity. All classes of people celebrate this festival with great joy. the houses are clean and decorated. It is a period of complete leisure as all the educational institutions, government and non − government offices remain closed. Children seem to be very happy because they are provided with new and attractive clothes. This festival enables to maintain brotherhood, friendship, cooperation and humanity. Moreover, those who are away from home come back to celebrate this festival with families and relatives.

To sum up, the festival Dashain has cultural, historical and religious importance. It is the sign of human civilization. Sacrifi cing the innocent animals in the name of goddess is not good. It is the sign of brutality. Sometimes, Dashain has also been the time of misery for poor people. People remain debt throughout the year.Celebrating Dashain in an extravagant way is to be discouraged. We should not spend more than we can afford. Therefore, it should be celebrated for the betterment of all and should be considered as a celebration of good over evil.
