“It’s good to bunk classes sometimes, because now when I look back, marks don’t make me smile but memories do”said by A.P.J ABDUL KALAM.
Good morning sir and my dear fellow classmates.Today I am here to talk on a very beautiful topic “MEMORIES”
Memories are both good and bad. Memories don’t mean remembering 1,2,3 or x,y,z etc.But actually means the funny or tragic parts of your life held in the past.I am sure that whenever you will look back to your memories they will surely make you smile or laugh like hell.As I said memories are both good and bad.Okay let’s take an example.You and your friend did something very stupid yesterday that you thought you will die today .But guess what? you are alive!
After many years when again you will look back to this moment you will surely laugh.So friends live the moment,enjoy every second of your life and make more and more memories…..

Animal Cruelty

Grade: 7 | Year: 2015 Published On: 2015-04-17

I’m sure most of us have had their hair accidentally pulled out or caught on something before. We all know how much it hurts even though it’s usually only a few strands of hair. Now imagine, being forced to live your entire life in a small confined cage just so someone else can pull out your own hair to sell for personal profit.
Imagine, watching your friends skinned alive and then left to die while you sit back and wait for your turn to come. It’s obvious that no one would ever want to be put in a position like that, but sadly, this is the life that millions of animals live every single day just because of the fur on their backs. Good afternoon. Today, You will be informed about the real truth about the fur and leather industry.

Dark Chocolate
Benefits of Dark Chocolate
Creamy white, silky milk, sweet, semi-sweet, bitter sweet and even unsweetened chocolate warms our hearts with joy but out of all chocolates one of the healthiest chocolates of all is dark chocolate.
Good morning my dear teachers and friends, my name is Sneha. I’m fron 2 KRK.Today I’m going to talk to you about the amazing benefits of dark chocolate and the history behind it.
The creation of dark chocolate came to the earth nearly 3000 years ago. Back then dark chocolate was not a dessert but a bitter drink only drank on special occasions unless their status was royalty. The Mayans and Aztecs grew cocoa trees in their backyards were they were harvested and made in to liquid. Soon they shared this recipe with the Spanish. The Spanish healers used chocolate to heal insect bites.
Now day’s chocolate has been doused with so many chemicals that I can’t even list them! Out of all the chemical chocolates, dark chocolate is the healthiest out of all. Why? Well, the antitoxins in dark chocolate contain lots of good and healthy qualities such as improving your blood circulation and lowering your chances of getting high blood pressure, stroke, cancer, cell damage and heart disease in an older age. Dark chocolate not only can help you for the future but can help you if you have a simple sore throat or cough because it contains special Theo bromine.
Your parents must have told you eating chocolate is bad for you well now you can go tell them all these healthy qualities and add this healthy treat to your daily life but I think we all know its common sense that we should eat in moderation we don’t want to get obese or high on chocolate. If you think dark chocolate causes cavities or even tooth decay, it’s a lie it’s one of the least that is contributing to tooth decay so you can enjoy your snack and tell your dentist that. Did you know chocolate has chemicals hat can boost your mood and make you fell awesome? Eating dark chocolate is probably the best thing you can do for your body. Some of the thousand of popular chocolate name brands out there are Mars, Twix, Crunchie, Reese’s cups, Reese’s pieces, Smarties, Kit-Kat, Aero, Hershey, and my favourite, Toblerone because it was 3D first.
All though dark chocolate contains so many healthy qualities; it also contains lots of fats and sugars which can lead to obesity and health problems so if you eat it with moderation you too can enjoy the healthy goodness of dark chocolate. Here’s your excuse for eating chocolate. Thank you all for your time.
