The students’s e-magazine is our shift from Print media to digital media to play our part in capping the carbon emissions a great threat to our won existance. Our endeavour is from being an ecnomial solution but we have a larger than life objective to inspire and motivate our young generation to be moreself aware and play their role in maintaining the ecological balance of the Earth.
Our first issue is dedicated to the most debatable topic of the modern time i.e. ‘Sustainable Development’. It means ‘Development that meets the needs of present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.” We have come on the brim of extinction. To overcome this gloomy and creepy situation the best way is to make our future generation aware where we are heading to.
I can’t resist myself from quoting the statement of Ms. Margaret Thatcher; the former Prime Minister of Britain. No generation has a freehold on this earth; all we have is a life tenancy – with a full repairing lease. We have not inherited this Earth from our forefathers: we have borrowed it form our children”
I Hope our efforts will bring a little change in the life of humanity and will help us live longer on this unique planet.

Victor Public School, Maujpur has fulfilled its commitment by empowering every child who has entered its portals with courage of conviction and strength of character to tide over the trials and tribulations of life. It is also a matter of great joy for me to see that at the same time the school is keeping pace with the rest of world. Our students have been taught to strike the right balance between tradition and modernization.
Victor Public School will continue to impart knowledge with virtue and moral excellence, therefore, instilling in each of its students the values of life. If we succeed in inculcating in them the internal values of trust, honesty, service before self, our mission will be fulfilled.
In the last 26 years school has shown tremendous progress. I dedicate this success to the hardwork and undying support of our staff and students.
I congratulate staff for their single-minded dedication to help the students traverse the greater heights of academic excellence and holistic growth. Last but not the least I wish the staff and the students’ success in all their future endeavours.

"Success comes to those who work hard and stays with those, who don’t rest on the laurels of the past."
We live today in a world that is so very different from the one we grew up in, the one we were educated in. The world today is changing at such an accelerated rate and we as educators need to pause and reflect on this entire system of Education. Are our schools well equipped to prepare our children to face the challenges that the future holds?
Questions such as these are factors that motivate us to go through a continuous process of reflection and hence we at YPS work at implementing a well balanced curriculum to ensure that the children who walk into the portals of our Schools will not just love their school years but truly be prepared to face life’s challenges.
It was Margaret Mead who said "Children must be taught how to think, not what to think,” and to enable this, our motto of Knowledge, Imagination and Innovation is encouraged through a holistic approach."to motivate the weak, to address the average and challenge the gifted" is the teaching vision of our school.
Aristotle once said that, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Even as we impart education to match the advancement in technology and globalization, we march our children ahead with YPS’ ethos of moral values and principles. We endeavour constantly to instill these qualities in our children. We pride ourselves to help them grow and develop into sensitive and responsible citizens of the next generation. ...........Read More

I heartily congratulate all of you on the publication of the maiden issue of the school magazine. I thank the editorial team for their efforts in making our dear come true. I really appreciate the editor for choosing very sensitive issue, ‘Sustainable Development’ . Much has been said by the young authors in their articles. I just want to quote a very touchy poem :
I took one look at Earth, and said, ”I have a diagnosis. Your health, it seems, is not so good. In fact, it’s quite atrocious. Your temperature is rising. Ice caps are melting into the seas. You need to breathe in clean air, so, why do you cut down your trees? Smoke and smog are clouding your skies. There’s congestion on every motorway. Your oceans are full of rubbish, and more is dumped, day after day. Many species are disappearing. Once they are gone, they won’t be back. I can’t bandage your Ozone Layer or fix global warming with an ice pack. You must look after yourself, Dear Earth. I’m afraid there is not much I can do, except advise you to clean up your act. The rest is up to you!” Lest take an oath to keep our planet safe and green.

Sustainable development is the organising principal for meeting human development goals while at the same time sustaining the ability of natural system to provide the natural resources and ecosystems to provide the natural resources and ecosystem service upon which the economy and society depends. The describle end result is the state of society where living conditions and resource use continue to meet human needs without undermining the integrity and stability of the natural system.
While the modern concept of sustainable development is derived mostly from the 1987 Burndtland Report, it is also rooted in earlier ideas about sustainable forest management and twentieth century environmental concerns. As the concept developed, it has shifted to focus more on economic developmental protection for future generations. It has been suggested that “the term ‘sustainability’ should be viewed as humanity’s target goal of human-ecosystem equilibrium (homeostasis), while ‘sustainable development’ refers to the holistic approach and temporal process that lead us to the end point of sustainability”.
Sustainability can be defined as the practise of maintaining processer of productivity indefinitely-natural or human made by replacing resources used with resources of equal or greater value without degrading or endangering natural biotic systems. Sustainable development ties together concern for the carrying capacity of natural system with the social, political and economic challenges faced by humanity. Sustainability science is the study of the concepts of sustainable development and environmental science. There is an additional focus on the present generations’ responsibility to regenerate, maintain and improve planetary resrouces for use by future generations. The circles of sustainability approach teh four domains economic, ecological and cultural sustain.
What is sustainable development?
"Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
How does it affect?
Sustainable development provides an approach to making better decisions on the issues that affect all of our lives. By incorporating health plans into the planning of new communities, for instance, we can ensure that residents have easy access to healthcare and leisure facilities.
How does we make it happen?
We all have a part to play. Small actions, taken collectively, can add up to real change. However, to achieve sustainability in the UK, we believe the Government needs to take the lead. The SDC's job is to help make this happen, and we do it through a mixture of scrutiny, advice and building organisational capacity for sustainable development.
Principles of Sustainable Development
Sustainable development is maintaining a delicate balance between the human need to improbe lifestyles and feeling of well-being on one hand, and preserving natural resources and ecosystem, on which we and future generation. Sustainable development without compromising the ability of future generation to meet their own needs
The principles of Sustainable Development:
Sustainable development is the organising principle for meeting human development goals while at the same time sustaining the ability of natural systems to provide the natural resources and ecosystem services upon which the economy and society depends. The desirable end result is a state of society where living conditions and resources use continue to meet human needs without undermining the integrity and stability of the natural systems. While the modern concept of sustainable development is derived mostly from the 1987 Brundtland Report, it is also rooted in earlier ideas about sustainable forest management and twentieth century environment concerns. As the concept developed it has shifted to focus more on economic development, social development and environmental protection for future generations. It has been suggested that “the term sustainability should be viewed as humanity’s target goal of human – ecosystem equilibrium while sustainable development refers to the holistic approach and temporal processes that lead us to the end point of sustainability. The concept of sustainable development has been and still is subject to criticism. What, exactly, is to be sustained in suitable development? It has been argued that there are no such things as a sustainable use of non-renewable resources, since any positive rate of exploitation will eventually lead to the exhaustion of Earth’s finite stock; this perspective renders the industrial revolution as a whole unsustainable. It has also been argued that the meaning of hte concept has opportunistically been stretched from ‘conservation’.
Sustainable Development is the pathway to the future that we want for all Sustainable development is a way for people to use resources running out. The term used by the Brundtland Commission defined it as development with sustainability that “meets the need of the present without compromising the availability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Everyone wants a better place to live. Some people want better homes and housing, while other want better schools, more jobs, better shops, or cleaner and safer streets.
Others may want all these things. Whatever the problems in any neighbourhood, they usually grouped into three issues people need. A better environment - that means green spaces, play areas, no litter, nice gardens, decent houses, less noise and pollution. The resources used should renew over generations.
A better economy- that means jobs, reasonable prices, cheaper heat and light, no lions sharks.
A better social condition- that means good leisure facilities, lots of community groups offering sports and arts, friendly neighbours.
Take a challenge everyday That tomorrow should be better Than today. When I fight my innerself, I lose battles sometimes But the war with myself, is what I win everytime I crib not about what is gone I forget the nights, start afresh every dawn Present, is what, I create and enjoy Content I am, like a child with his toy. What it is, matters, not to me 'Coz I believe to see what can be Not blaming others, fault in me, is what I see.
'Coz I believe if it is to be it is up to me. I just not know how to smile To reach it, double the efforts, Would I have sown. I counted not the seeds in a fruit But I believe in spreading a smile, For this, one needs to walk an extra mile. Step by step, step by step, is how I I tread the path In sea of failures, to reach success, I took a bath The fun lay, not in the destination But journey itself was a fascination. Nothing came free,
but with success in mind I paid the price, not just money, but in every kind. What it is to be successful, I had known But counted the fruits that came from every root. I hit the iron when it was hot But ridicule in return is all I got. BUT When I touched the pinnacles, I saw the viewpoint alter Concern in return for a little hard work, I think was a good barter.....
