Student came up with very different aspects of wealth – spiritual, materialistic, health, time, environment, friendship, happiness, talent and peace. A girl from CMS believed that Mother Earth is the only planet where life is possible, so environment is the best wealth. A student from St. Marks believed that time is only wealth because everyone gets 24 hours, but it depends how we use that time. Sanya Negi from DIS strongly supported materialistic wealth as she said no one is born crimainal, it is lack of money that makes a person induldge in anti social activities.
Then the discussion moved to the topic Charity and Raima from DIS quoted that “Smile is the best charity, if you have nothing to give”. Students from other schools kept their point of views. One child believed that imparting talent is the best charity. Some favoured giving your time to someone is the best thing that we can do for others.
