Operation Vijay-Gruelling Battle Of Kargil

The youth is the future, so it is important to grow in them the feeling of love and respect for their nation, which will happen only when they will be aware of the sacrifices made by the soldiers of India. We at The Heritage School, Best ICSE Schools in Dehradun, always talk with our students about the wars the Indian Army fought and the sacrifices they made. This gives them the feeling of patriotism.

It has been 19 years since Kargil War, but still, soldiers like captain Vikram Batra, Captain Sourabh Kalia, Captain Manoj Pandey, and all others soldiers who fought long and hard became the irreplaceable names in the history of contemporary India.

The Kargil War was a result of conflict between India and Pakistan that took place in the Kargil district, Kashmir, along the Line of Control (LOC) in May and July 1999. It was also known as “Operation Vijay” for the Indian Army. The conflict is believed to be managed by the Army Chief of Pakistan General Pervez Musharraf without the permission of the then Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. It began with the infiltration of Pakistani soldiers into the Indian Territory, at the side of the LOC. The infiltrators, even before the war positioned themselves in key locations to get a strategic advantage before the start of the war.

The Pakistan army captured Tololing that started the ‘turn in tide’ followed by the capture of ‘Tiger Hill’, which was an ‘end in sight’ for us.  Taking the advantage of the terrain, climatic conditions they attacked, assuming that their strategy will act as a weakness for the Indian military.

The Indian Army was able to ascertain the point of incursion and therefore launched “Operation Vijay” which was declared successful on July 26, 1999, and is celebrated as Vijay Diwas. The Victory came with the martyr of 527 soldiers. 

We are among the Best School in Dehradun and always try to inculcate the feeling of patriotism in our students by making them aware of the sacrifices made by the Indian soldiers. On every National holiday, we organize an event for our students and teachers which enlightens the patriotic feeling in them by the way of singing patriotic songs, presenting a play, reciting a poem, or giving a speech.

Be Safe This Monsoon

“Rain, rain you have been such a respite from the heat pangs of summer”. This is your thought when you feel the breeze, hear the voice of raindrops, and smell the wet earth. But being a parent, no matter how beautiful the weather seems, you should be aware of the diseases rainy season bring with it.

So here are some tips and tricks from The Heritage School, top school in Dehradun, to protect your child this monsoon from some common diseases, because precaution is always better than cure.

Cold and Flu

Monsoon comes with a very common disease i.e. Cold and flu, which may be because of fluctuation in temperature. You can protect your child and build up his body resistance by providing him with Vitamin C and E, which reduce the chance of falling ill and help create antibodies to fight against cold and flu. You can also give him turmeric milk on a daily basis, which will prevent the body from catching a cold or flu.


If your child is suffering from high fever and cold it can lead to viral. This is an airborne disease and can be spread through contact as well. You can prevent viral by making sure that your child carries a hand sanitizer when in school. Nature is the medicine to every illness. Neem and Tulsi leaves are antiviral agents which help to protect your child from viral. You can add their leaves in the bathwater of your child or can put some the drops of Neem oil in their food.

Stomach Infection

The transfer of bacteria and germs in your child’s body can lead to a stomach infection, this can be the result of eating street food, not eating healthy and fresh food, and not washing hands before eating. You can only prevent this by giving them healthy and fresh food, and make sure that they are wash hands before and after eating food.

We at The Heritage School, which is among the Best School in Dehradun, care for every student’s health so that their illness never becomes a hurdle in their learning.

Help Your Child Think Critically

Critical thinking skills are one of the most important skill set a child should grasp at an early age. Learning to think critically and then taking important life decision based on these skills will help your child in long run.

Critical thinking is the ability to analyze and evaluate a situation and taking decisions considering observation, experience, reasoning, and veracity of the situation.  At The Heritage School, Top 10 schools in Dehradun, we understand the importance of critical thinking; here are some steps to develop it in your child.

Create an environment of trust - Welcome their decision with trust. Tell them to indulge in family decisions and allow them to give their point of view and opinions. If they are wrong, tell them to think of an alternative solution, respect their decisions and never underestimate them.

Create a situation where they can think critically- Expose them to the outer world with unexpected and new experiences. Observe them during tough situations and let them learn cause and effect relationship. Their reaction will tell you what more development they need.

Don’t interfere for some time - Give them time to think. Let them see all alternative solution of a problem and find a solution for themselves. If you think that they are unable to do so, help them! Give them ideas and different alternatives and push them to take their own decisions.

Ask them questions – Ask them questions or give them situations regularly. Their every answer will help them to think even more critically and will widen their thinking.

Add creativity to their thinking- Let them think in new and different ways, make them creative, add ideas to their brain, and ask them for new ideas. This will allow them to think with taking all things under consideration and they will be able to get the best solutions for their problems.

Develop their reasoning power – Ask them why they are doing a certain thing and why they think that their decision is right. Teach them to think before doing.

Being Best School in Dehradun, we always try to develop the skill of thinking critically in our students which help them to take decisions independently.

Be A Shield Between Your Ward and Internet

Over the course of time, internet has become a necessity. At The Heritage School, top 10 schools in dehradun, we understand that every child is drawn towards the lucrative world of internet. But the internet is a pool of wide range of variety of content for all ages. So it is necessary to keep children safe from the content which can harm their innocence. Not only the content but other security issues like viruses, phishing emails, social networking sites etc. should be made familiar to them. But the question is how? How can we ensure that our child is surfing safe websites which have no misleading content? How shall we educate them about the complexities of safety and security at such a tender age?

Keeping children away from the internet is not an optimal solution as it will lead them to lag behind their peers. Besides all the security and safety issues we shall not overshadow the fact that the internet is the best source in today's world to learn about new and latest trends and happenings around the world. So we shall devise a plan through which we can access the benefits of the internet while keeping our child shielded from the attacks of the cyber world.

Here are some advice given by internet safety and security experts:

• Discuss the risks on the internet and their consequences at an early age.
• It is necessary to make the child aware of the world he/she is entering into so that they can step into it consciously.
• Monitor your ward’s activities by using parental controls and filters.
• Schedule their time on the internet, like only half an hour or an hour in a day.    
• Ask them not to share any personal details or stuff with anyone online without your consent.

Besides these tips, we at The Heritage School, Best School in Dehradun, suggest spending time with them. Talk with them more often and try to become their best buds so that they can share their stuff with you without any fear of being grounded or judged. “When they will feel comfortable to share their problems with you, they won’t find friends online to discuss their life”. Also, this will help you to keep them at a distance from any unwanted situations.
