Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.
CPS always emphasizes that nature and its resources are the building blocks of our civilization. As a part of experiential learning the germination of seeds activity was done by the students of class IV in an innovative way. It gave them an opportunity to witness the growth of seeds into plants. Their happiness was at its peak when they saw a little plant coming out .The event was a reminder to the students of their duties towards mother Earth emphasizing the need to protect the earth and promote afforestation. It instilled the thought that “The seeds we plant today will become fruit bearing tree tomorrow”.

This is Laya from Class 9B. I was looking forward to sharing some recent activities that I have been participating outside academics.
I have been actively working on making 3D animation since January. I was curious to explore the region of cryptocurrencies and decentralisation as they have been growing rapidly. That’s when I found out about Non Fungible tokens or NFTs. Collectors purchase digital art for cryptocurrencies such as Etherum, Wazir, Bitcoin, etc. NFTs are the new rage among artists and buyers of exclusive, bespoke art pieces. Collectors are given a certificate that the work is original and when they resell the art, the original artist gets a royalty as well.
I have been a NFT artist since February and sold 4 pieces of my work for about Rs. 1.6 Lakhs. I am excited to let you know that I have also been invited into more exclusive and premium platforms and am looking forward to the future. Since I am 13 years old, I would also be the youngest NFT artist in India.
In addition, a short film I had made last year thanking the COVID workers had been selected for the Busan International Youth and Kids Film Festival in Korea. The film was streamed in the film festival. I also minted the movie as a NFT and it was sold in less than an hour for about Rs. 40,000. A short media coverage of my work was posted in the urban asian newspaper. A few more articles about my work are to be published in the Live Mint, Indian Express, Urban Asian and Outlook.
