2011 Volume 01 Issue No. 04
As the final edition of e-xpressions for this academic year is
uploaded, I cannot help but look back with considerable
pride and satisfaction. Our endeavours in the year gone by
have been acknowledged and commended by one and all.
We have embarked on our Golden jubilee year, celebrating
the fruition of long cherished goals. While we are justifiably
proud of our progress, we cannot afford to be complacent.
We all have heard the oft quoted saying ‘The school is a
building with four walls and tomorrow inside.’ But hidden in
the simplicity of this quote is a profound message. The race
for excellence is never ending. I am confident that as long as
we have a cohort of students who believe in themselves and
hold strong to their values and integrity, we can turn every
dream into a reality.
Expressing my thoughts to my Golden batch – class of 20102011, ‘we do not need magic to change the world, we carry
all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the
power to imagine better.’ This is a famous line from J.K
Rowling’ commencement address at Harvard. And I want
you to understand the power of your mind – how your
thoughts and attitude can make a world of difference. Go
students and let the world see the power within you and we
will always cherish the footprints you leave at the threshold
of the Indian High School, Dubai.
The editorial team of e-xpressions wishes all students the
very best for your forth coming final examinations and
success in all your endeavours.
For the next academic year 2011-12, we heartedly welcome
your articles, poems, sketches, creative work and
photographs clicked by you which speak about your
photographic genius. Please confer upon us your knowledge
and contributions.

As the night’s curtain over the City of Dreams fell,
Terror’s night began.
The invaders of peace, from the seas, struck,
To wage a brutal war against humanity.
Not one dreamt in their worst dreams ,but
The Taj, Oberoi-Trident, were soon to be gruesome battlefields
The innocent victims,
Little did they know,
That soon, they would be captives of death.
The intruders consumed by hatred, fired their weapons
To take away God’s precious lives
Without a thought fleeing their polluted minds,
Barbaric acts they committed, their eyes blurred.
A scream of utter helplessness
Resounding in the hearts of the unfortunate ones
With every gunshot,
Many hopes and dreams were swept off
Blood, like a river without any value flowed.
In horrific violence’s midst,
Bravery’s sons, glowing embers, marched forward.
Armored with the suit of courage,
Pawning their own lives,
As a ransom to save the innocent.
At long last, bade adieu, the nightmare.
Leaving its tragic legacyConsumed lives, broken-hearted souls, orphaned families
A sober tale of misery,
Echoing through pain’s mourning, sorrow’s fire.
Smearing its violent imprint not only in history’s pages but in the
heart’s of many,
Not a blow to Mumbai alone, but a hit on humanity, it was.
With tears clinging on my eyelids, I ask“When will peace & harmony, like a mighty fortress,
Emerge from the depths of hatred & violence,
Embracing one and all?

HONESTY MEANS THE QUALITY OF BEING
TRUTHFUL AND SINCERE. MY FATHER
ALWAYS TEACHES ME TO BE HONEST. ONE
DAY WHEN MY PARENTS HAD TO GO OUT
OF THE HOUSE, MY FATHER TOLD ME TO
FINISH MY HOMEWORK AND NOT TO
WATCH TELEVISION. WHEN THEY WENT OUT
I SWITCHED ON THE TELEVISION AND
STARTED WATCHING MY FAVOURITE
CARTOON . WITHIN FIVE MINUTES I
SWITCHED OFF THE TELEVISION AND BEGAN
TO COMPLETE MY HOMEWORK. AFTER
SOME TIME MY PARENTS CAME BACK HOME
AND MY FATHER ASKED ME WHETHER I
WATCHED TELEVISION. I HONESTLY REPLIED
THAT I WATCHED TELEVISION FOR FIVE
MINUTES. MY FATHER DID NOT GET ANGRY
WITH ME.

My Day With A Four Year Old
The day begins, as books are set
Charts put up and homework checked.
Its nine and they arrive
With that shy, warm and often naughty look in the
eye,
That seems to say I’m glad you’re here,
To hold my hand and soothe my fears.
As the day, periodically unfolds
Words or lines or stories are told
I look expectantly into those eager eyes
Searching for signs and answers right.
I heave a sigh and look around
And answers come in unison.
Now it’s time to run and play,
Those bubbly, prancing feet seem to say
“Don’t tell me to walk, I have to run.
You’ve had your say, now’s my time for fun.”
It fills my heart with warmth so great
To know that I am a teacher by fate.
And so I thank you little one,
For a world you help create,
Full of life and joy and love
And those blessings from above.

Son to Father
Why?
Can’t I speak my mind?
He doesn’t seem to understand,
Even though we both try.
Our moments of togetherness
Are shortened by and by.
There were those years,
Cherished by us,
When everything was shared,
Each moment worth a lifetime.
When did all that change?
To this pretense of false intimacy.
Now, silence surrounds us.
More than the ghosts of laughter.
Our love is deeper,
It’ll save us from this disaster.
For tomorrow, I shall spend the day,
With the greatest man in the world.
My idol, my mentor, during the yesteryears.
And then we both shall understand
That, we never grew apart.

LA MUSIQUE
La musique est l'une des joies de la vie. Il est en effet agréable pour se
détendre et écouter votre musique préférée après une journée
fatigante. La musique adoucit loin nos soucis et c'est pourquoi les gens
stressés sont invités à écouter de la musique apaisante, afin qu'ils
puissent oublier leurs problèmes.
Il ya beaucoup de différents types de musique et différentes personnes
ont des intérêts dans différents genres de musique. Maintenant, avec
les lecteurs MP3 facilement disponibles, il est plus facile d'écouter de
la musique lors de vos déplacements. Beaucoup de gens apprennent
aussi à créer de la musique en jouant de musique instruments.
La musique est devenue une partie essentielle de notre vie de chacun,
comme nous le plaisir de tirer. Il serait en effet difficile d’imaginer
notre vie sans musique.
