Beacon 2019: A Journey in Search of Myself
By far, this was one of the most amazing and life-changing experiences of my entire life. Every minute including the bus trip up and down was enjoyed and cherished by everyone. Led by Mr Mutheeulhaq, we went through a lot of simple yet elegant and effective sessions. Starting with the pole exchanging game and ending with the confession session everyone went through sweeping changes and various emotions. Talents we didn't know existed within us came to light and the confidence buried deep brown shone bright surprising us over surprises. Strangers became the best of friends and the introverts extroverts. Our trainer and therapist Mr Mutheeulhaq made every session as enjoyable and effective as possible. It was two precious days of fun and transformation that helped us create the best of memories. The scenery of the site played its part as well. For the first time in many of our lives, we learned to accept life with grace and gratitude. Going on this wonderful trip and experiencing the change was of course a blessing. Looking back, this will indeed be the most spectacular trip that served as a stepping stone to a new life. I will forever be grateful for taking us on this wonderful journey of happiness and success.
World Population Day observed
A seminar with paper presentation and discussion was conducted by the UG Departmentof Zaitoon International Girls Campus. The seminar concluded that population is not the major threat but the unscientific management of natural resources is. As Indira Gandhi said at the UN Conference in 1972, “when it comes to the depletion of natural resources and environmental pollution, the increase of one inhabitant in an affluent country, at his level of living, is equivalent to an increase of many Asians, Africans or Latin Americans at their current material levels of living”.
Authoritative lecture by Aslam Hudawi
For Zaitoon’s English aspirants from both its HS and UG who have been in search of an authoritative lecture on ‘Prospects of English studies in view of the National Education Policy - 2019’, Saturday’s discourse was a dream come true. The talk, which proved thrust and parry of any question related to prospects of English studies in India, was delivered by Aslam Hudawi, assistant professor of Maulana Azad National Urdu University, Hyderabad. Thanks to him for uncovering the cloud of anxiety that has been hanging on English careers and introducing a variety of English courses a Zaitoonite can pursue in her future.

A two-day mind reset programme
A two-day mind reset programme was organised at Calicut on 28, 29 November. The programme was meant for those students who had been in search of an ultimate solution to rid themselves of exam fear, to beat short memory and after all to realise the true power of their mind. The entire programme was led by Mutheeul Haq Faisy, a renowned psycho therapist and the chief faculty member of Zaitoon’s Psychology Department.
According to the participants, the program brought about many visible changes in their mindset and character. For them, it was a life-time opportunity, after many hard years, to put their feet up and have a complete relaxation, totally focusing on their own selves, a sporting chance to bury the dark side of their lives and kick off the life once again afresh. It was indeed a chance to switch themselves off their daily chores and sharpen their concentration.
