“If the face of India has to change ever, it is possible only with proper and quality education being imparted to everyone without any discrimination”
Gajera institutions exemplify the fact that sky is not the limit in the pursuit of excellence. The aim of our schools is to promote a system of integral education in a congenial child-friendly environment that emphasizes the unity of all knowledge, synthesises humanity and sciences and recognizes the fact that each child is unique. We believe that education should enable the students to soar high – morally socially and spiritually. We believe that our students need to learn that the secret of success and contentment lies in discovering one's own strengths as well as limitations. There is, therefore, every reason to place a renewed emphasis on the humanistic dimensions of education, enabling each person to grasp and appreciate the individuality of others, and to discover one's own self through an inner journey whose milestones are knowledge, introspection and humility. This should guide educational thinking in conjunction with other holistic objectives. At Gajera schools, priority is also given to the teaching of critical thinking skills such as reasoning and problem solving, to help our students develop the ability to reach sound conclusions based on observation and information. Our school curricula also allows our teachers the flexibility to adopt innovative methods to stimulate interest and attention among the students and develop in them an appreciation for the values of the past, the excitement of the present and the challenges of the future.
You would find a wealth of learning opportunities at Gajera schools and institutions of higher learning that would serve as an essential stepping stone to a fulfilling life and career.
The world is changing; it is getting more competitive and at the same time offering enormous opportunities to those who possess appropriate skills, the right attitude and an innovative mind.
Technology and innovation are going to be the key facilitators of success in future. Dream big, think big, experiment and be passionate in whatever you do. Challenge the norms, create new and make your identity. We all live in the age of instant results and quick fixes. Today, we can do most things at the click of a button- thanks to the digital revolution.
But what we must not forget is that success does not come this way. It cannot be achieved instantly. It only comes with sheer hard work, dedication pushing oneself beyond one’s capabilities, striving for excellence and making the best of opportunities. If you are passionate about something, then follow your passion and success will be yours.
Also, always remember that nothing stays forever – neither success nor failure. The only thing that is constant in life is change. We have to accept the changes and challenges of life and be mentally focused, strong and determined. Keep learning about new things, God has created infinite capacity in you, make use of it; handle adverse situations fearlessly, with courage. I remember Mahatma Gandhiji’s advice which holds great relevance even today: ‘live as if you were to die tomorrow but learn as if you were to live forever’ I am confident that if you cherish and live these values, you will go a long way and achieve success in all spheres of life!
Wishing you all the very best!

Winds of Change
Reculturing and Reinventing Role of Educator
Winds of change are sweeping societies across the world. The Indian society is steadily passing through transformation and modernisation. The social mobility of the people is increasing. From a traditional closed society, we are moving towards the modern and egalitarian the responsibility rests on the shoulders of teachers, who are the ‘Builders of the Nation’ to make the society capable of accommodating change and becoming strong enough to resist unwelcome trends…….
The role of teachers in a child’s education has fundamentally changed. Teaching differs from the old 'show and tell' practices and changes are creeping into the teaching learning process. Instruction doesn’t consist of lecturing students who sit in rows at desks, dutifully listening and recording what they hear but rather, offers every child a rewarding, and unique learning experience. The educational environment isn’t confined to the classroom, it extends to the home, the community and the world.
Today, the seeds of a dramatic transformation in education are being planted. Prompted by information technology and public demand for better learning outcomes, schools nationwide are slowly but surely restructuring themselves.
Leading the way are thousands of teachers who are rethinking every part of their jobs; their relationship with students, colleagues and the community; the tools and techniques they employ; their rights and responsibilities; the form and content of curriculum; what standards to set and how to assess whether they are being met; their preparation as teachers and their ongoing professional development; and the very structure of the schools in which they work. In short, teachers are reinventing themselves and their occupation, to better serve students.
New Relationships and Practices
Traditionally, teaching was a combination of information-dispensing, custodial child care and sorting out academically inclined students from others. Teachers were told what, when and how to teach. They were required to educate every student in exactly the same way and were not held responsible when many failed to learn. They were expected to teach using the same methods as past generations and any deviation from traditional practices was discouraged. Thus, many teachers simply stood in front of the class and delivered the same lessons year after year, growing grey and weary of not being allowed to change what they were doing.
Teachers today, however, are encouraged to adapt and adopt new practices that acknowledge both the art and science of learning. They understand, that the essence of education is a close relationship between a knowledgeable caring adult and a secure, motivated child. They realize that their most important role is to get to know each student as an individual, in order to comprehend his or her unique needs, learning style, social and cultural background, interests and abilities.
Teachers need to be committed to relating to all youngsters including those who, with traditional teaching, might have dropped out or have been forced out of the education system. Their job is to counsel students as they mature, helping them integrate their social, emotional, and intellectual growth; so the union of these separate dimensions, yields the abilities to seek, understand and use knowledge, to make better decisions in their personal lives. Rather than see themselves solely as masters of subject matter such as history, math, or science, teachers increasingly understand that – 31 – teaching, might have dropped out or have been forced out of the education system. Their job is to counsel students as they mature, helping them integrate their social, emotional, and intellectual growth; so the union of these separate dimensions, yields the abilities to seek, understand and use knowledge, to make better decisions in their personal lives. Rather than see themselves solely as masters of subject matter such as history, math, or science, teachers increasingly understand that they must also inspire a love for learning. They must be prepared and permitted to intervene at any time and in any way to make sure learning occurs. In practice, this new relationship between teachers and students, takes the form of a different concept of instruction.
Effective teachers to make students passionate participants in the instructional process, by providing project-based, participatory and educational adventures. They know that in order to get students to truly take responsibility for their own education, the curriculum must relate to their lives, learning activities must engage their natural curiosity and assessments must measure real accomplishments.
The day-to-day job of a teacher, rather than broadcasting content, is becoming one of designing and guiding students through engaging learning opportunities. An educator’s most important responsibility is to search out and construct meaningful educational experiences that allow students to solve real-world problems and show they have learned the big ideas, powerful skills, and habits of mind and heart. The result is that the abstract, inert knowledge that students used to memorize from dusty textbooks comes alive as they participate in the creation and extension of new knowledge.
New Tools and Environments
One of the most powerful forces changing teachers’ and students’ roles in education is new technology. The old model of instruction was predicated on information scarcity. Teachers and their books were information oracles, spreading knowledge to a population with few other ways to get it.
But today’s world is awash in information from a multitude of print and electronic sources. The fundamental job of teaching is no longer to distribute facts but to help children learn how to use them by developing their abilities to think critically, solve problems, make informed judgments and create knowledge that benefits both, the students and society.
Recasting the relationship between students and teachers demands that the structure of school changes as well. Though it is still the norm in many places to isolate teachers in rooms with age graded pupils, this paradigm is being abandoned in more and more schools that want to give teachers the time, space and support to do their jobs.
Reinventing the role of teachers inside and outside the classroom can result in significantly better schools and better-educated students. Though the roots of such improvements are taking hold in today’s schools, they need continued nurturing to grow and truly transform our country’s learning landscape. The rest of us must also be willing to rethink our roles in education to give teachers the support, freedom and trust they need to do the essential job of educating our children.
Married at 14, two children at 18; This did not stop from becoming an IPS officer...
Clearing the UPSC Civil Service Exam is one of the most difficult exams to clear. Each year lakhs of candidates appear in the examination but only a few thousand can clear the exam. But if the intentions of the aspirants are strong, they can overcome the biggest obstacles in their face. This article contains the story of one such woman, who has become an example for thousands of females all over the country.
IPS N Ambika has performed such a task which we cannot even think of. It isn’t that she didn’t face any troubles in her journey, the difference is just that she didn’t give up at any point. Continue reading this article to know more about N Ambika’s journey, preparation strategy, current posting and life after becoming an IPS.
IPS officer N. Ambika was a victim of child marriage. She was married to a police constable at the age of 14 in Tamil Nadu. She became a mother of two daughters by the time she was eighteen, after four years of marriage. Despite this, she never gave up in the face of difficult times and continued to struggle to achieve someplace big in life.
Her IPS journey began when she visited a republic days parade with her husband. She noticed him saluting several officers and that’s when she inquired about them. Her husband replied by saying that they were IPS officers. That’s when she decided to become an IPS officer. But the journey wasn’t easy.
When Ambika decided to become an IPS officer, she hadn’t even passed her class 10th exams. She didn’t let this fact scare her. She first completed her class 10th and 12th from a private institution. Then she went on to complete her graduation as well. But if she wanted to become an IPS officer, Ambika had to appear in the UPSC Civil Service Exams. She shifted to Chennai to prepare for the exam. That’s when her husband stood up and took care of their children along with doing his job.
But it was not smooth sailing from there. She failed thrice in the Civil Service Exam. After failing thrice in the exam Ambika’s husband requested her to return home. But Ambika didn’t give up. She asked for her husband’s permission to appear in the exam for one final time. In 2008 and her fourth attempt Ambika passed the UPSC Civil Service Examination. Ambika was allocated the Maharashtra Cadre and is currently the Deputy Commissioner of Police in Mumbai.
N Ambika’s journey to the path of success wasn’t easy. She faced a lot of challenges but never gave up. Her preparation strategy began when she moved to Chennai. One important tip she gives every student is to read the newspaper daily. Reading the newspaper is an important part of UPSC preparation. One should not only read the newspaper but also make notes since our brain can only store a limited amount of information. Making notes can help you remember the information for a longer period.
Aspirants are recommended that they use only a single source for each section of the exam. Using multiple sources for each section can not only confuse her but also limit the ones time to revise. Another useful tip to candidates is that they should answer as many questions as possible and should appear in a mock test series. By doing this you will get a clear idea of how to write good answers which help you secure a good UPSC rank.
N Ambika’s journey has been an inspiration for most women. Even though she was a victim of child marriage, she refused to struggle and lame the system her whole life. She instead dedicated her life to fight and change the system so that she can improve the lives of thousands of people so that they don’t face the issues she faced.
Ambika’s story shows that with great strength and courage we can overcome any difficulties faced by us. Her story also shows us that if you are busy blaming your past then your future won’t ever improve. Her story might have inspired some candidates preparing for the UPSC Civil Service Examinations. You can visit the UPSC Pathshala website to read the success stories of more candidates.

School is very important for various reasons. It teaches and prepares us for anything that is out there. The school helps us crave some important rules and tools that we will need for a successful future. Therefore, the start of any new school year should be lively, energetic, and inspirational. Thus, the School Opening Day will help you start a new school year full of motivations, hopes, and dreams. Besides, it will not only motivate you but also others.
It is very well said that the first impression is the last. The phrase stands true even in case of some celebration, any event, or a show. If the opening is right, you can attract excitement from the student. A great and enthusiastic welcome can attract the attention of the student. while a boring one can make you lose the same.
The welcome ceremony gives the event a particular direction, and thus, a rousing welcome will make the student wonder in excitement about what is going to take place further. So, the welcome holds value, and one should take care of delivering it with full confidence, enthusiasm, and positivity. The welcome address can be formal or informal depending upon the event but what should remain constant is the catchy tune of the welcome to gain attention from the students.
Our Educator makes a warm welcome with a beautifully decorated school. They made beautiful flower Rangoli as an Indian traditional and show them different parts of our school like a garden, play area, building. and their loveable own classroom. The educator and new little Gajerians gave their introduction. principal Mr. Nitin Patil and Vice-principal Mrs. Anju Mistry gave the speech and encourage the students.
World environment day
World Environment Day is celebrated on June 5, annually to encourage awareness and environmental protection. According to the United Nations, "the celebration of this day provides us with an opportunity to broaden the basis for an enlightened opinion and responsible conduct by individuals, enterprises, and communities in preserving and enhancing the environment."
Our environment is one of the most important thing to survive on our planet. Moreover, it is the only thing that can make life sustainable and easy.
On world environment day, we all join various campaigns to spread awareness about environment protection. Moreover, we all plant small saplings in a barren land so that it may grow and flourish in the land area after some years. Also, we take part in various processions to make people aware of this day.
The theme of this year’s World Environment Day is Ecosystem Restoration. Pakistan will act as global host of the day. World Environment Day 2021 will see the launch of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
An ecosystem is a community of plants and animals interacting with each other in a given area, and also with their non-living environments. The non-living environments include weather, earth, sun, soil, climate and atmosphere.
Ecosystem restoration means assisting in the recovery of ecosystems that have been degraded or destroyed, as well as conserving the ecosystems that are still intact. Restoration can happen in many ways – for example through actively planting or by removing pressures so that nature can recover on its own.
Our educator give them information about world environment day and what should we do to protect our environment. Our little Gajerians do plantation at their home.

World Food Safety Day
Kids learn about importance of Food safety, Food safety is a shared responsibility between governments, producers and consumers. Everybody has a role to play from farm to table to ensure the food we consume is safe and will not cause damages to our health. It is especially important for agriculture, or any food producer, to employ safe food handling practices. Farming has changed dramatically. From new technology to population booms, growing safe food has become more challenging, especially in response to globalization and a significant increase in demand for certain foods

The Dubai Miracle Garden is a flower garden located in the Dubailand District, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The garden was launched on Valentine's Day in 2013. The garden occupies over 72,000 square meters (780,000 square feet), making it the largest natural flower garden in the world with over 50 million flowers and 250 million plants.
In April 2015, the garden was awarded the Moselle Award for New Garden Experiences of the year by the Garden Tourism Award 2015.
The concept of the first miracle garden project was formed based on an agreement between Dubailand and the destination of the Dubai Properties Group. The development of the project was carried out under an agreement with the Akar Landscaping and Agriculture Company, led by the Jordanian entrepreneur Abdel Naser Rahhal. The cost of the project was estimated at AED 40 million.
The first phase of the project was completed and inaugurated in February 2013 which consisted of a 21,000 square foot outdoor structure with vertical and horizontal landscape design where each one has its own design. The development of the first phase took two months and required 400 workers. The second phase of the project was launched in mid-June 2013 and was completed in October, where it envisaged the expansion of 70% of the 21,000 square feet and the construction of the 850,000 square foot multi-storey car park, which increased the total area of the 2 million square foot garden. Phase two of development also included the addition of the flower clock, butterfly garden, retail stores and mosques.
The Dubai Miracle Garden operates from October to April each year and is closed from May to September due to high temperatures with an average of 40 ° C (104 ° F), which is not conducive to viewing the flowers.
The flowers are maintained by reusing the wastewater treated through the drip irrigation method with an average amount of 757,082 liters of water per day. to the garden. The garden re-filters the water and converts it into water of the highest quality for its use in the garden. The garden is watered only after closing time at night.
Dubai Butterfly Garden is another attraction in Dubai is a separate part of the Dubai miracle garden. In 2015 Dubai Miracle Garden opened the Dubai Butterfly Garden, the largest indoor butterfly garden in the region and the first sanctuary for over 15,000 butterflies of 26 species.

Artificial intelligence (AI)
What is artificial intelligence (AI)?
Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions. The term can also be applied to any machine that exhibits traits associated with a human mind, such as learning and problem solving.
The ideal characteristic of artificial intelligence is its ability to rationalize and take actions that have the best chance of achieving a specific goal. A subset of artificial intelligence is machine learning, which refers to the concept that computer programs can automatically learn and adapt to new data without the help of humans. Deep learning techniques enable this machine learning by absorbing large amounts of unstructured data such as text, images, or video.
Understanding artificial intelligence (AI)
When most people hear the term artificial intelligence, the first thing they usually think of is robots. That's because big-budget movies and novels weave stories about human-like machines wreaking havoc on Earth. But nothing could be further from the truth.
Artificial intelligence is based on the principle that human intelligence can be defined in such a way that a machine can easily imitate it and execute tasks, from the simplest to the most complex. The goals of artificial intelligence include mimicking human cognitive activity. Researchers and developers in the field are making surprisingly rapid advances in mimicking activities such as learning, reasoning, and perception, to the extent that they can be concretely defined. Some believe that innovators will soon be able to develop systems that exceed the ability of humans to learn or reason on any subject. But others remain skeptical because all cognitive activity is tied to value judgments that are subject to human experience.
As technology advances, the previous benchmarks that defined artificial intelligence become obsolete. For example, machines that calculate basic functions or recognize text through optical character recognition are no longer considered to incorporate artificial intelligence, as this function is now taken for granted as an inherent computing function.
AI continually evolves to benefit many different industries. The machines are connected with a multidisciplinary approach based on mathematics, computer science, linguistics, psychology and more.
Applications of artificial intelligence
The applications of artificial intelligence are endless. The technology can be applied to many different sectors and industries. AI is being tested and used in the healthcare industry for the dosage of drugs and different treatments in patients, and for surgical procedures in the operating room.
Other examples of machines with artificial intelligence include computers that play chess and driverless cars. Each of these machines must weigh the consequences of whatever action they take, as each action will have an impact on the bottom line. In chess, the end result is to win the game. In the case of autonomous vehicles, the IT system must take into account all external data and calculate it to act in a way that avoids a collision.
Artificial intelligence also has applications in the financial industry, where it is used to detect and flag activity in banking and finance, such as unusual use of debit cards and large deposits in accounts, all of which help the fraud department of a bank. Applications for AI are also being used to help streamline and facilitate commerce. This is done by facilitating the estimation of supply, demand and the price of the securities.
Categorization of artificial intelligence
Artificial intelligence can be divided into two different categories: weak and strong. Weak artificial intelligence incorporates a system designed to do a particular job. Weak AI systems include video games like the chess example above and personal assistants like Amazon's Alexa and Apple's Siri. You ask the assistant a question, he answers it for you.
Strong artificial intelligence systems are systems that carry out tasks that are considered human-like. They are usually more complex and complicated systems. They are programmed to handle situations in which they can be required to solve problems without a human intervention. These types of systems can be found in applications such as autonomous cars or in hospital operating rooms.

Constructivism in pedagogy
“Constructivism is an important learning theory that educator’s use to help their students learn it is based on the idea that people actively construct our make their own knowledge”
In this manner,an exclusive webinar for the educators on constructivism was organised by Gajera Vidyabhavan, Sachin. It took place on 25.06.2021at 1 p.m.It was conducted in English using Zoom application including screen sharing.The overall moderation of the meeting was done by Alice Durgayan from Armenia.The centre of the webinar were difficult aspects like teaching style and process, teaching approach,constructivism in , psychology of students,fun like teaching, teachers role in education,etc. The whole staff has had the opportunity to get to know about the exact teaching process.

'મા' મારે નાનું થવું છે
' મા ' મારે ફરી આજે નાનું થવું છે......
ફરી એક વાર તારા ખોળામાં સૂવું છે,
તારા મમતા ભીના આચલમાં ભીજાવું છે.
' મા ' મારે ફરી આજે નાનું થવું છે......
જ્યારે મને કોઈ ખીજાય ત્યારે,
ફરી તારો વહાલ સોયો હાથ માથા પર જોઈએ છે.
' મા ' મારે ફરી આજે નાનું થવું છે......
મારે ફરી એક વાર તારી પાસે એકડો કક્કો શીખવો છે,
લાકડી નો મર ખાવો છે.
મને માર ના પસ્તવાથી તારા દિલમાં ઘેરાયેલા વાદળોમાંથી,
અનહદ મમતા રૂપી વરસાદમાં ફરી નાહવું છે.
' મા ' મારે ફરી આજે નાનું થવું છે......
મારે ફરી ઉઘાડા પગે ચાલવું છે,
પગમાં કાંટો ગોપાવો છે.
પછી તારી મીઠી મીઠી વાતો સાંભળી ,
હળવી તારી ફૂક થી કાંટો કડાવવો છે.
' મા ' મારે ફરી આજે નાનું થવું છે......
મારે ફરી તારા ઘરેણાં પહેરી સંતાઈ જવું છે.
અને તું અવનવા વિચારોની સાથે મને શોધે,
ને હું મળતા ફરી તારી છાતીએ વળગી રહેવું છે.
' મા ' મારે ફરી આજે નાનું થવું છે......
મારે ફેર - ફુદરડી ફરતા ફરતા પડી જવું છે .
ને જ્યારે આંખો ખુલી ત્યારે,
ફરી એકવાર તારા આલિંગન નો સ્પર્શ જોઈએ છે.
' મા ' મારે ફરી આજે નાનું થવું છે......
આજે તો તે ઘણી કરી દીધી છે મોટી ,
આજે ફરી નાની થઈ તારા ખોળામાં રમવું છે. ' મા ' મારે ફરી આજે નાનું થવું છે......
