Today, in this morning assembly I would like to say a few lines about the 'Importance of Discipline in Life. I know very little in your eyes and forgive me for my unknown mistakes.             Discipline means learning to obey rules. It is the habit of doing things in an orderly and systematic manner. The importance of discipline is felt in every step of life. At school, students will have to learn to obey school rules. If a student does not obey the rules of school, he will learn nothing at school. Even in games, there must be discipline.

If a student acquires the habit of doing things in a disciplined way, he is sure to succeed as a student.  In public life, discipline is of great value. Disc


           KEEPING QUITE Now we will count to twelve and we will all keep still. For once on the face of the Earth let's not speak in any language, let's stop for one second, and not move our arms so much. It would be an exotic moment Without rush, without engines, we would all be together in a sudden strangeness. Fisherman in the cold sea would not harm whales and the man gathering salt would look at his hurt hands. Those who prepare green wars, wars with gas, wars with fire, victory with no survivors, would put on clean clothes and walk about with their brothers in the shade, doing nothings. What I want should not be confused with total inactivity. Life is what it is about; I want no truck with death. If we were not single-minded about keeping our lives moving, and for once could do nothing, perhaps a huge silence might interrupt this sadness of never understanding ourselves and of threatening ourselves with death. Perhaps the Earth can teach us as when everything seems dead

              A Question of Trust 1.Q) Give a brief account of Horace Danby. = Horance Danby was a man of strange nature. He was at the age of fifty. In the eyes of other people he was a good and honest citizen. He dwelt with a housekeeper. In fact he was very happy except for attacks of hay fever in summer. His business was making locks and he was very successful at  his business. His hobby was reading books. Specially, he was very fond of reading those latest and expensive books which came to the market every year.              Though he was considered as a good and honest citizen by the people, as a matter of fact he was little good.

Like the Assamese people they also tie cords round the fruit bearing trees. Like  the Assamese people they not only offer rice to the animals but also to the birds and fishes. Moreover on the day Domahi they put a mark of water mixed with cow dung, around their granary. On the seventh day of Magh Bihu they again clean the utensils and sacrifices fowls to their God Bathou and go out for carol singing to collect some eatables. They call this custom Magan or begging.            Another point to note is that the Kachari's make Bhelaghar and set fire to them with special customs. The cowherd boys burn the Bhelaghars early in the morning before the crows come out of their nests. While setting fire to the Bhelaghar, the leading cowherd prays for the whole village as ' Glory, Glory, Glory glory to o
