વાર્તા (कहानी)

શીર્ષક: સંપ ત્યાં જંપ

એક હતો ખેડૂત. તેને પાંચ દીકરા હતા. તે બધા બળવાન અને મહેનતુ હતા. પણ તેઓ અંદરોઅંદર એકબીજા સાથે લડતા-ઝઘડતા રહેતા હતા.

ખેડૂતની ઈચ્છા હતી કે પાંચેય દીકરા ઘરમાં સંપીને શાંતિથી રહે. એટલે તે એમને ખૂબ સમજાવતો. પરંતુ ખેડૂતની સલાહની દીકરાઓ પર કોઈ અસર થતી નહિ. તેથી ખેડૂત હંમેશા ચિંતાતુર રહેતો.

એ રોજ વિચાર કરતો કે આ છોકરા સંપીને રહે તે માટે શું કરવું જોઈએ? એક દિવસ અચાનક તેને ઉકેલ મળી ગયો. તેણે પાંચેય દીકરાને પોતાની પાસે બોલાવી કહ્યું: ‘જુઓ આ લાકડાની ભારીમાંથી એક પણ લાકડી કાઢ્યા વિના આખી ભારી તમારામાંથી કોણ તોડી શકે છે?’

ખેડૂતના દરેક દીકરાએ વારાફરતી લાકડાની એ ભારી હાથમાં લીધી. દરેકે તે ભારીને તોડવા બળપૂર્વક ખૂબ પ્રયત્ન કર્યો. પરંતુ એમાંથી કોઈ પણ એ ભારી તોડી ન શક્યો.

પછી પેલા ઘરડા ખેડૂતે કહ્યું: ‘ચાલો લાકડાની ભારી છોડી નાખો અને તેની લાકડી એક પછી એક તોડી નાખો.’ દરેકે એક પછી એક લાકડી હાથમાં લીધી અને સરળતાથી તોડી બતાવી.

પછી ખેડૂતે સલાહ આપતાં કહ્યું:

‘એક એક લાકડી સહેલાઈથી તૂટી ગઈ કેમકે તે મજબૂત નહોતી. પણ એ જ લાકડીઓ જ્યારે ભારીમાં બંધાયેલી હતી ત્યારે ખૂબ જ મજબૂત હતી. તમે પણ પાંચેય જણ સંપથી રહેશો તો મજબૂત બનશો પરંતુ લડી ઝઘડીને અલગ અલગ રહેશો તો કમજોર બની જશો.’

પ્રશ્નો:
૧) ખેડૂતને કેટલાં દિકરા હતાં ?
૨) ખેડૂતે દીકરાઓને શું આપ્યું ?
૩) લાકડીઓ જયારે ભારીમાં બંધાયેલી હતી ત્યારે કેવી હતી ?

प्रश्न १. मौलवी साहब ने मियां शेख को क्या शिक्षा दी थी ?

प्रश्न २. मियां  शेख का नाम मियां शेख चिल्ली कैसे पड़ा ?

क्यों पड़ा “मियां शेख” का नाम “मियां शेख चिल्ली”

 

बचपन में मियां शेख चिल्ली को मौलवी साहब नें शिक्षा दी थी कि  लड़के और लड़की के लिए अलग अलग शब्दों का प्रावधान होता है। उदाहरण के तौर पर “सुलतान खाना खा रहा है” लेकिन “सुलताना खाना खा रही है।”

मियां शेख चिल्ली नें मौलवी साहब की यह सीख गाठ बांध ली।

फिर एक दिन मियां शेख चिल्ली जंगल से गुज़र रहे थे। तभी उन्हे किसी कुएं के अंदर से किसी के चिल्लाने की आवाज़ आई। वह फौरन वहाँ दौड़ कर जा पहुंचे। उन्होंने  देखा की वहाँ कुए में एक लड़की गिरि पड़ी थी और वह मदद के लिए चिल्ला रही थी।

मियां शेख चिल्ली तुरंत दौड़ कर अपने दोस्तों के पास गए और उन्हे बोलने लगे कि वहाँ कुएं के अंदर एक लड़की गिरि पड़ी है और वह मदद के लिए चिल्ली  रही है।

मियां शेख चिल्ली और उनके दोस्तों नें मिल कर उस लड़की को कुएं से बाहर निकाल लिया।

फिर घर जाते वक्त मियां शेख चिल्ली के एक दोस्त नें यह सवाल किया कि  मियां शेख आप लड़की चिल्ली रही….चिल्ली रही… क्यों बोले जा रहे थे?

तब मियां शेख के एक पुराने दोस्त नें खुलासा किया कि मौलवी साहब नें मियां शेख को पढ़ाया था की लड़का होगा तो… खाना खा रहा है, और लड़की हुई तो खाना खा रही है इसी हिसाब से मियां शेख नें लड़की के चिल्लाने पर “चिल्ली रही” शब्द का प्रयोग किया।

मियां शेख चिल्ली के सारे दोस्त मियां शेख की इस मूर्खता पर पेट पकड़ कर हंस पड़े और तभी से मियां शेख बन गए “मियां शेख चिल्ली” पड़ गया ।

Directions: Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow

Hummingbirds

Have you ever heard the sound of a hummingbird? They make a buzzing noise when they fly. They make this noise because they beat their wings so fast. They beat their wings up to 80 times a second. All that flapping makes a lot of noise. That’s why we call them hummingbirds.

Hummingbirds fly in a unique way. They move their wings so fast that they can hover. This means that they can stay in one spot in the middle of the air, like a helicopter. Sometimes they fly or hover upside down. They are the only bird that flies backward.

Hummingbirds are small. One type called the bee hummingbird is the smallest bird in the world. Bee hummingbirds weigh less than a penny. They are just a little bit bigger than bees. I guess that’s where they get their name.

Bee hummingbirds build tiny nests. They use cobwebs and bits of bark to make their homes. Their homes are only an inch around. This is big enough for their eggs though. Their eggs are smaller than peas. People have found these tiny nests on a clothespin.

Hummingbirds move fast. It takes lots of energy to move as fast as they do. This means that they need to eat a lot of food. Their favourite food is nectar, a sweet liquid inside of some flowers. They drink more than their own weight in nectar daily. They have to visit hundreds of flowers to get enough nectar to live. They can only store enough energy to survive through the night. They live on the edge.

Hummingbirds don’t use their long beaks like straws. They have a tongue just like you. They use their tongues for eating. They flick their tongues in and out of their mouths while inside of flowers. They lap up nectar. Flowers give them the energy that they need.

Hummingbirds help flowers too. They get pollen on their heads and bills when they feed. Flowers use pollen to make seeds. Hummingbirds help pollen get from one flower to the next. This helps flowers make more seeds. More seeds means more flowers. More flowers means more food for hummingbirds. Isn’t it nice how that works out.

Grade 6 – LEAP CLASS

Grade 6 – LEAP CLASS

Learning Enrichment and Advancement Program (LEAP) is a program that the school has been pursuing since last four years. The format of the program remains the same for this year as well. Students will be having a LEAP session once in a cycle. The school has undertaken this learning program to foster students’ thinking skills. Students apply their learning of LEAP in Language, Math and UOI class, thereby, thinking differently or out of the box. It focuses more on cognitive processing. It provides tools and levers to allow students to explore areas. It gives a software for the mind that creates constructive thinking. It improves the ability to consider consequences before taking action.

We started with the oomph activity, students enjoyed a lot. They were dancing and giggling around. Next was deciding on essential agreements and explaining how LEAP will look like in the coming year, in an interesting way by guessing the picture from the PPT.

Further, the students introduced themselves by creating logical reasoning analogies (an analogy is a comparison of two things to show their similarities.) They came up with outstanding connections like I’m like an oil, which doesn’t get mixed up easily with everyone.

Overall, it was a fun-learning activity for the learners.

Homework: Try to recollect thinking tools that you have learnt so far and think critically how these thinking tools will be helpful to you in your day to day life or importance of thinking tools. Do it in your LEAP notebook (Back side of UOI notebook) as instructed in class.
