हमेशा याद रखो

1. मनुष्य गुणों से उत्तम बनता है न कि ऊँचे आसन पर बैठने से !जैसे महल के शिखर पर बैठ कर कौए –कौए ही रहते हैं कोयल –कोयल ही रहती हैं !
2. उदाहरण प्रस्तुत करना उपदेश देने से अच्छा है !
3. प्रशंसा के भूखे यह सिद्ध कर देते हैं की उनमें योग्यता का अभाव है !
4 भूल करके मनुष्य सीखता तो है पर इसका मतलब यह नहीं कि जीवन भर वह भूल ही करता रहे !
5. अपने अज्ञान का आभास होना ही ज्ञान की ओर संकेत करता है !

Only if you had common sense!!!

“Only if you had common sense! Common sense is the most uncommon thing to find!”
I have heard it so many times and always thought; if everything is so based on common sense then we should try to learn common sense not science. But what is common sense and where does it differ from science?
In Simple words, common sense is logical train of a common thought process. To me, logical train would mean without the contamination of half baked knowledge areas and devoid of stubborn reluctance to see the levers that make the processes work. 

I say half baked because this situation usually lands its victim in a dangerous situation. He starts believing that his hunches are truth and others just need to tag along with him and his ideas. Simply put, he deviates from the basic fact of life: “No over analysis but a plain sense of how thinks work and why they work a particular way”. Wait a minute, now; is this not actually science?

 People use experience to arrive at general truths and people also use general truths to arrive at analysis of experiences. Solution of problems too complicated for common sense to solve is achieved by interweaving streams of inductive and deductive inferences. These inferences are quickly mapped between the observed experience and the mental hierarchy of the general knowledge. Induction reasons from particular experiences to arrive at general truths. Deductive inferences start with general knowledge and predict a specific observation. A person having the common sense of letting this process happen succeeds and arrives at the right conclusion. The Common sense and science- both part of a complexity continuum?
What am I talking? OR am I a fit case – Only if you had common sense!!! Common sense is the most uncommon thing to find!

There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure. Fear cuts deeper than swords. It is useful to feel fear, because it prepares you for nasty events.  A Fear should be like a salt in the food, a little bit of fear is essential for people to be righteous. Fear of hurting someone makes you more conscious. Fear of failure makes you more keen and dynamic. Fear of sickness brings hygiene. Fear of wrong keeps the right. However total lack of fear may lead to destructive tendencies. It is only Fear which has maintained Peace and law on the planet.

There is no greater indignity nor greater dishonor than to succumb to the helplessness of a situation thinking it to be beyond one’s control. Compromise is another name for defeat or surrender. Compromise is that word which weakens your quest, hunger, or thirst for success or victory. Momentarily it appears to be the best way out or the best you have done, but in your heart you know you have settled for the second best. A lot of people tend to confuse compromise with adaptability. To combat compromise one needs courage. It is only when we drop courage that we choose compromise. Compromise is like a temporary bandage that we deliberately place over our wounds to escape from the pain. It is only with faith and true belief that one can rise above the challenges of life. Faith is what makes you believe you can. Compromise makes a good umbrella but a poor roof.  Better to have passion, and dedication than indifference in your mind and heart. Always remember if you want to reach anywhere in life learn to step out and overcome difficulties than compromise.

We essentially punish ourselves when we don't believe in the existence of God because it is on the foundation of this belief that we build an edifice of eternal knowledge. Belief in God is an innate desire for accomplishing any task and facing the challenges of life. If we desire to walk on the path of love and tranquility, then this belief has to be kept alive in our hearts forever.

Ms. Sneha Thukral


There is a very famous quote by Swami Vivekananda – “All power is within you , you can do anything and everything. Do not believe that you are weak , do not believe that you are half crazy lunatics as most of us do these days. You can do anything and everything , without even the guidance of anyone .”
The main thing over here is that  just believe in what you do. Take up an idea , make that one idea your life – think of it , dream of it , live on that idea. Let your brain , muscles, nerves , every part of your body be full of that one thing and just leave everything else alone. This is the way to success. Therefore arise , awake and stop not till the goal is reached. Education is not merely putting information in your brain , but also having life building , man making , character building assimilation of ideas.

Truly said by experts that “Planning determines the future course of action to achieve the desired results” so we all should thoroughly plan our work before doing. It is a pervasive exercise done by all professionals like, teachers, leaders, homemaker, and event managers etc, like wise planning is compulsory for students also because with the help of planning students can bridge a gulf between present and future, and also able to pre-programme in what to do, how to do, when to do it. 
So by following the route of planned process one can achieve one’s targeted objectives, planning is basically a decision making activity which involves choosing the most appropriate alternative out of several alternatives available. So planning is thinking i.e. mental exercise rather doing process, therefore planning requires application of the mind involving foresight, intelligent imagination and judicious perception. Those students who tend to succeed in life must develop planning skill in them.
“Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.”Let that noise not falter your ambition…

नैतिक मूल्य

नैतिक मूल्यों से तात्पर्य उन मूल्यों से है जो किसी भी व्यक्ति के चरित्र निर्माण का आधार होते है यह हमे माता-पिता, परिवार, समाज व् शिक्षकों द्वारा प्राप्त होते है समय व् परिवेश के साथ नैतिक मूल्यों की उपयोगिता व् उनके महत्व में परिवर्तन होता रहता है सत्तर के दशक की नैतिकता के अर्थ की यदि हम बीसवीं सदी से तुलना करे तो अंतर स्पष्ट रूप से देखा जा सकता है अतः समय व् परिवेश के साथ नैतिक मूल्यों में भी परिवर्तन किया जाना वर्तमान समय की आवश्यकता है किन्तु आजकल के आधुनिक युग में छात्रों में नैतिक मूल्यों का हास हो रहा है, छात्र बिना सोचे समझे पश्चिमी सभ्यता को श्रेष्ठ मान उनका अन्धाधुन अनुसरण कर रहे है अतः शिक्षकों का यह कर्तव्य है की वह छात्रों के समक्ष स्वयं आदर्श बन कर अपने रचनात्मक गुणों का यथोचित प्रयोग करे व् समय समय पर अपने निजी अनुभव बाँट कर उनका नैतिक एवं चारित्रिक उत्थान करे तथा उचित मार्गदर्शन करे!



A few days back I asked one of my students the name of his favourite book and he replied, ‘The winner stands alone’. I wondered, Is it so? I had thought that losers run the risk of taking the flak, alone in the end. I have often heard people saying, ‘When I was slogging day and night, nobody bothered, now that I have achieved it, they want their piece of cake.’ Not a bad investment I would say, may be the same people now would come around to help you the next time you need them, knowing that you have a winning streak in you. The true winners are never afraid of sharing their success with people but there is something more important than being a winner and that is being a doer. The most important person in your life is you, whom you can not fool, who should be proud of you and who you can look in the eye and say, ‘Yes I have done it’. The key is to enjoy what you do, the fruits of success are enjoyed best by those, who have grown it.
There are two types of people- first is the highly insecure clan who do not allow others to be a part of their journey, fearing they might be overtaken somewhere along the way. The second type doesn’t mind just tagging people along, guiding them, grooming them, preparing them for the unforeseen. Which of these two makes you a leader is not hard to guess. Choose what you want to be in life, coz I did when I was very young-
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less travelled by, 
And that has made all the difference.
And does the winner stand alone? I don’t really know. Enjoy the journey while you can because the top can be a really lonely place.

The Color Purple

Alice Walker’s novel The Color Purple deserved every laudatory word it has received. Despite its controversial ideas, there is no denying that it is a great literary work and deserves not only the Pulitzer Prize but many others. As I was reading the novel I could feel my mind making the connections, connections with the society we are living in. Are we different from Celie is a recurrent question that crossed my mind. A lot was said and told to be done after ‘Damini’s’ case but we are still there from where we started…still looking for answers.
The story is told from a first person view of the main character Celie who throughout the story goes through a major transformation. The tone in the beginning is one of an oppressed, naive, young girl, who still has a lot of growing up to do. Even in the private recesses of her own mind, Celie was a meek character who was very passive. It seemed as though she did not even know she could be anything else. It’s only once Walker introduces strong independent characters like Sophia and Shug does the reader and Celie realize that her life could be different. The sharp contrast between these women’s and Celie’s characters really exaggerate what all Celie is lacking not only as an independent woman but as a human being at all. As Celie realizes this and begins her transformation, the tone itself begins to change. The book is no longer told from the mindset of a docile girl but from the mind of a strong woman.
The symbolism in this book is amazing. The symbolism of the pants is perhaps one of the more apparent ones. In the story, Celie actually thinks about how it is so strange for women to wear pants like a man. But in the end, Celie opens her own business making pants for men and women alike. This represents her journey of self discovery. She started out oppressing her own her feelings; she even describes herself as being as hard as a tree. But as she grows she learns that there’s nothing wrong with having feelings and this is where she can draw strength from. By the end of the story she is not merely admiring other people’s pants (feelings) but wearing her own.
This book plays on various themes but as I was reading, the most apparent one to me was God and our individual paths. In the beginning, Celie sees God the way most people are brought up to see him. When she thinks of God, she pictures a big white man sitting in a chair with a long gray beard. Sound familiar? It’s the same picture depicted in almost every child’s bible. As Celie grows, she begins to associate this image of God with the oppressive men in her life. She soon sees God as perhaps an agnostic would see him. This is the point where Celie hits work bottom. It isn’t until Shug tells her that God isn’t even a man that Celie finds her faith again and finally learns to really truly be happy. Celie’s journey in faith is like many of our own. We must lean on our friends for guidance and discover for ourselves who God really is and what He means to us.
It is one such novel that makes me go back to my bookshelf again and again. I not only love the title which is again loaded with meanings but the message and the power it gives to the reader that while reading the novel itself one feels liberated, transformed and one with all those like Celie.

Effect of 3D's in our life

If an individual wishes to be successful in life then he/she is essential to procure a positive attitude towards each and every episode of his life. To achieve an attitude of success , he needs to employ certain strategies that may lead his life in the direction of victory. One must remember that every success story is also a story of a great failure. The cause of the failure of many people is not the lack of ability and intelligence in them  but because of the lack of 3 D’s of  life i.e. Desire, Direction and Dedication. These 3d's can be acquired when a person will  learn to motivate himself and have high self –esteem in achieving something not in harming anybody.    
One must always remember that :-Winners don’t do different things , they do things differently.

Learning happens through questioning

Learning is happens through questioning. Rather than giving answers, good learners learn by identifying questions. Learn to nurture critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and the ability to see the world as an interconnected community.A positive learning will lead you to the values of compassion, gratitude, appreciation etc

Learning is to get in touch with the silence within oneself, and to know that everything in life has a purpose. That there are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from.

In the traditional education system, it was usually assumed that students needed to be taught according to a set curriculum, following defined rules. His or her ability to recall what has been taught in the way it had been taught was the measure of his or her success as a student. No harm in the methodology but it did not leave students with any motivation to think and apply the concepts on own and neither was there any way to test his or ability. Teachers knew what was to be taught and there were very hardly any change in what went on in classrooms year on year. Very few students who took an applied approach to what they learnt became major fuel to innovations and new discoveries. But with the pace and need of innovation multiplying manifold these modern times, it is fast becoming a necessity for entire student community to adopt a more active role in his/her education.

Time and again it has been proved that passive, apathetic and bored student community can only excel in a traditional memorizing and recall style of education and evaluation. But to architect, design and develop new knowledge he/she will need to take control of his/her education. Western world, somewhat ahead on these ideas now, have been attempting to bring new models to their schools like experiential learning, adventure learning, problem based learning, discovery learning etc. Many names but objective of all attempt is to weigh the merits and demerits of academic learning to other modes of learning. Various research studies that have not been able to directly correlate success in life to a better performance in life later on fuel these attempts of identifying improvement avenues.

So we are seeing many schools promoting a Student Centered Learning Culture, right from play schools: Emphasis is on teacher being the facilitator not the executor of process of maturation.   So we have Montessori methodology where teachers are referred to as “Guides”. The classroom is a “prepared environment” and children learn what they are ready to learn. While in “Practical life” children learn how to take care of themselves, others and environment, in other sections of class like sensorial, mathematics, language cultural children learn other skills. Another worth mentioning approach that showcases this shift between the perceived roles of teachers and taught in a classroom is Reggio Amelio Approach. In this approach teachers give a lot of attention to the environment, which must be specially set up to invite children to learn and explore. Classroom itself is thought of as a teacher. Teachers are expected not to talk down to children and instead encourage them to find their own ways of solving problems.

In Primary and secondary sections, focus is more towards teaching pupils to think and learn more effectively using a range of visual, auditory and other techniques like mind mapping, music stimulation, physical activity and practical design activities. Many studies have been carried to figure out which skill (listening, looking carefully or doing/building/making) was easiest and hardest for students and results reflect that students identified “doing” as the easiest skill. And this has been the fuel to drive the new models of learning.

Another aspect to the fast changing relation between teachers and the taught is the difference in the way how knowledge was controlled and distributed earlier and these days. The Internet is fast becoming one of the largest and most important learning resources available to both teachers and students. Over the last decade this situation has been matched by an ongoing commitment by the Government and society to increase the use of ICT and Internet technologies in education and to ensure that everyone has access to them. There is the sense that ICT will not only feature in the future but that it will reflect and shape it.

In this scenario, the teacher becomes more a point of guidance that lends to the student the skills and the confidence to conduct their own learning processes than a holder or facilitator of knowledge. This ideological paradigm shift has been matched by a rise in the use of computers and the Internet as teaching devices and, in fact, the one upholds and allows the facilitation of the other. This shift means that the process of education which could be described as teachers telling is (or must) change to process of teachers facilitating access to information for the learner.

This also means teachers now need to be involved in the dual capacities of both teaching and learning and creates new Vision of what, when, and how teachers should learn. During the eighties, Rosenholtz (1989) brought teachers' workplace factors into the discussion of teaching quality, maintaining that teachers who felt supported in their own ongoing learning and classroom practice were more committed and effective than those who did not receive such confirmation. Support by means of teacher networks, cooperation among colleagues, and expanded professional roles increased teacher efficacy in meeting students' needs. Further, Rosenholtz found that teachers with a high sense of their own efficacy were more likely to adopt new classroom behaviors and also more likely to stay in the profession. So we see more and more teachers becoming part of learning communities like “Teacher Learning Community”. Such communities provide teachers will access to Webinars, Online Learning programs, Global resource sharing, social networking and collaboration etc to bring in 21st century teaching strategies into classroom, without travelling across the world.

SaaS, PaaS, On-Demand Models, Pay-As-You use models, Cloud Computing and virtualization are taking down the investment barriers making it all the more affordable to bring technology to Classrooms. Current innovations on handheld devices and tablets, efforts to make tablets as cheap and affordable delivery vehicle for knowledge areas are all accelerating the way classrooms will be designed as we go forward.

In summary, the teacher's role is fast evolving from one of teaching knowledge to teaching how knowledge can be acquired. Teacher is now more a guide facilitating development of “readiness” of a child to learn. However, as with everything, schools and teachers need to identify what are optimal boundaries of such new changes. Dilution of curriculum, isolation of students, confusion of roles, strategy more glorified than required end of education are some of the pitfalls we need to be careful of as we go on adopting new roles of teachers and taught.

“Do monkeys have souls?”

Some ten years ago while teaching Class 12 ,a lesson from English Core, a reference came in text regarding a mother monkey who was jumping above the opened well, apparently running after a male monkey who had a short while ago  killed her new born baby. The movements of mother monkey making advances towards male monkey initially sounded the act of flirtation  but soon after a thudding sound was heard when the mother monkey deceitfully jumped back halfway –through & the male monkey who was chasing her had a deep fall into the well and died a miserable death. Perhaps the mother monkey had taken her revenge over the killer monkey who had killed her new born baby. Was it poetic-justice designed by the Lord or was it the soul of the mourning mother monkey who wanted to avenge?

By the early 1930’s we had a picture of three building blocks of an atom : electron proton and neutron ; a positively charged nucleus consisting of protons and neutrons at the centre surrounded by negatively charged electrons moving round the nucleus. Electrons and protons are subjected to an attractive long-range electromagnetic force, whereas the attraction between protons and neutrons is due to an entirely the different short-range force (range less than 10-15 metre ) called strong force. The simple picture of three building blocks of matter did not last long. From the 1930s to the beginning of 1950s experiments carried out with cosmic rays led to discoveries of several new particles such as pions, kaons, lambdas etc. From 1950’s onwards particle physics are on fast track due to the availability of man-made high-energy accelerators. The number of new particles increased to more than one hundred with large number of them very short-lived ones, like eta, rho, omega, phi, kstar, deltas etc. The proliferation of particles and the apparent regularities in them led to the idea of a substructure. In 1964, it is suggested that these particles are composed of three fundamental particles, named quarks: up (in short u), down (d) and strange (s). These are fractionally charged particles: if the electron is treated as having a minus one charge (-1), then the u-quarks has (+2/3) charge, d-quark (-1/3) and s-quark (-1/3) charge. In this simplistic picture quarks combine in two ways (i) in groups of three to form proton (p=uud), neutron (n=udd) and similar particles out of three quarks called baryons, and (ii) in groups of two to make particles known as mesons out of quark-antiquark pairs: pions, kaons etc.
                                      The direct confirmation of the inner structure of protons came from a series of experiments conducted during 1969 in which high-energy electrons were made to collide with hydrogen target. Most of the electrons passed through the hydrogen target with small or no deflection, whereas some of them experienced large angle scattering as if from very small hard objects inside protons. Detailed studies revealed these as point like, meaning structureless constituents of protons. These constituents were identified as quarks mentioned earlier.

In caring for the whole human being, there is a need to focus on each aspect of what makes a person human. The most visible is our body. The second aspect is that of thinking, engaging our minds. A third aspect is feeling, which emerges in emotions and forms the dynamic energy of our relationships. And the fourth aspect of self is the spiritual. Its definitions are constantly evolving as understanding of this vital area of health care changes. 
Healing is rooted in the concept of wholeness. A physical health care need, such as an illness, may be a symptom of a deeper and more complex need for healing the whole person. In health care, there is growing awareness that spiritual care is a vital aspect of care for the whole person.

Life is a journey from our thoughts to destiny. If we have positive thoughts, we get positive results as thoughts are the fuel to our life. They induce us to carry actions in a certain manner and thereby , we get our destiny shaped. Thoughts must be checked everytime. Even when we think of hurting someone, we get punished by God. So in real life, we must check our thoughts. We must trust ourselves, keep the faith on Almighty alive forever and have positive thoughts. Eventually, we will get positive outcome in all our endeavours.

Technology in everyone’s life has gain an utmost importance in their working . It has become a vital element of everyone’s life. Students now a days have started using the technology in a wise manner in order to be equipped with skillful learning . The goal of technology in curriculum is to improve the comprehension level of the students. Teaching- learning through primitive measures have stopped the creative thinking of the students that may not yield  the desired results but through technology know-how it will result better than before. Regardless of the aspirations of the tiny graduates ,technology will be the most dominant factor at their work place.

What does it take to be an entrepreneur
I’ve written this poem to hopefully answer
You can be a woman or you could be a man
But you must have an attitude of Yes I Can
Some go all out to get started
Some begin on a basis of time that is parted
You need to have your heart and mind synchronized
To an idea that you must have materialized
When you begin you are out on your own
The seeds of your idea must certainly be sewn
Some entrepreneurs make lots of money
While others have businesses that seem kind of funny
Some may bake cakes
Others may raise snakes
Some have big dreams and reach for the stars
Some like to work on cars
Your idea could be as basic as shoes for your feet
Or perhaps something tasty like a new ice cream treat
Some are indeed inventors
Others are service implementers
Some find their destiny trying to better them self
Some find a way to create lots of wealth
Some go to school to learn how and why
Others are inspired to learn on the fly
There will be those
Who will oppose
Your vision
Tell you you’re on a failing mission
Everyone has nay sayers 
Even the greatest players
This is definitely fact
Walt Disney was called not creative, Marilyn Monroe told that she could not act
You simply must forge ahead
Don’t let them put your dreams to bed
Don’t let them be discouraging
Let this poem be encouraging
Don’t let them frighten you
May this column enlighten you
If we hadn’t the power to create in our mind
Like the animals still would be mankind
One thing in common all entrepreneurs say
What they do doesn’t feel like work, they can’t wait to get started each day
You don’t have to be a genius to succeed
Just simply identify and fill a need
For an entrepreneur one rule rings true
You must do what you love and love what you do
Although money is certainly a big help
It’s more about sharing a piece of yourself
It’s about your true identity
Who you are instinctually
Take a look down deep inside
From yourself you cannot hide
Once you realize what your heart beats for
You can unleash your passion and unlock the door
Why does one fail and another succeed
It’s due to a public that fickle indeed
Though some are barely surviving
For success they will keep striving
While others create enough wealth to purchase sports teams
There touch is golden they can do no wrong it seems
Hire the right people, employ the right team
You’ll need them to help you achieve your dream
It’s not always easy
But the journey is pleasing
If you figure out what many desire
You sales will soar higher and higher
At the end of the day while lying in bed
Thoughts of your business will run through your head
Good luck.

Since my college days I have been associated with several projects and activities which aimed at community development. Now as a teacher I wanted to plan such activities’ for my students which enable them to develop a connect with society and the associated issues. I wanted to instil values of love, unity, empathy & togetherness in my students through similar projects. I have been undertaking this activity for the past several yrs but this year I brought in new dimensions to promote international learning and connect. 
Under this project the students had undertaken sub-projects that studied segment of physically challenged people in international countries and their experiences. This provided them with a platform to compare the realities of different countries world over and bring forward their findings in the most innovative way possible. Though this activity our students developed a unique connect with people suffering in other countries along with the feeling of empathy and awakening in them.
One of the core focus of this prog has been generation of funds and resources for the under-privileged people in our society. Student’s whole heartedly planned & participated in the fund raiser and the visit to various NGO’s and slum area’s in the neighbourhood. The core team of students which took care of both these events could not only inspire other peers in the schools but also the community to participate in the resource generation process. Such activities gave my students an opportunity to bring out their leadership and communication skills which made this prog a success. 
Through the whole period of the prog i could see my students becoming more sensitive towards the blessings they have in life, how important it is to help the people in need & how together we can build a connected community and work towards making this world a better place .

“The challenge for management is as to how to integrate people so that they are inspired to work together effectively, with economic, social and psychological satisfaction.”
How do you integrate, motivate, encourage and develop a social atmosphere in today’s economic environment where people are expected to do more with less.
Ambivalence toward authority: People like freedom but feel lost if they have too much – They need protection but not interference.
So, prepare a good organizational cultural relationship with the collegues.

Move aside Dubai. China now has what is billed as the world's largest building. Southwest China is now home to what Chinese officials are calling "the largest building in the world". It is 100 meters high, 500 meters long and 400 meters wide, with a floor space of 1.7 million square meters, making it the world's biggest building measured by floor space. It is reportedly big enough to open 3 Pentagons inside it. The building has a water park, five-star hotels, an ice-skating rink and a beach, complete with artificial sea breezes and sunsets. It will also house offices, conference rooms, a university complex, two commercial centres, hotels, an IMAX cinema, a "Mediterranean village", a pirate ship and skating rink. Up to 6,000 visitors at a time will be able to sunbathe, play in a wave pool, sip cocktails or feast on seafood. A 150-meter-by-40-meter LED screen will rise above a section of water with videos of an ocean horizon.
The New Century project is a sign that China’s growth has spread from the country’s more prosperous eastern and southern regions to the west, where wages are lower and the central government has encouraged development with subsidies and tax breaks. With its booming economy, China has become home to some of the largest and tallest buildings in the world.
However, the first wave of visitors showed a mixed response. Some of them commented that the building lacks creativity while others have remarked that it will become the new landmark of Chengdu. Whatever may be the reaction, it remains a fact that this building is another feather in their now illustrious and almost full cap.

“Growing old is Mandatory, Growing up is optional”
Having spent three golden decades of life in teaching, beginning from my youth and moving on to ripe onset of age – old learning, I feel learning has not stopped . After joining KIIT I realized each moment one is instilled with new energy, new concept of learning, new aspirations AND new miles to go by which makes me reminded of famous lines of Robert Frost : 
The Woods are dark and deep 
But I have promises to keep 
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Discipline to life is like wings to birds. 
If you are disciplined you will achieve success in life and lead a very healthy and satisfied life.
Discipline can be achieved by following a simple rule of doing things at the right time and every time.
If discipline becomes a habit it will be easy to follow. A disciplined individual is well respected and everyone looks up to him for guidance and hence has an important role to play in society.

Positive Approach

Father:           I want you to marry a girl of my choice
Son:                “I will choose my own bride”
Father:           “But the girl is Bill Gates’s daughter
Son:                “Well, in that case….OK”

Next Day
Father approaches Bill Gates.
Father:           “I have a husband for your daughter:
Bill Gates:      “But my daughter is too young to marry!”
Father:           “But this young man is a vice-president of the World Bank.”
Bill Gates:      “Ah, in that case….OK”

Finally Father goes to see the President of the World Bank.

Father:           “I have a young man to be recommended as a vice-president.”
President:       “But I already have more vice-presidents than I need!”
Father:           “But this young man is Bill Gates’s son-in-law.”
Bill Gates:      “Ah, in that case….OK”

This is how one can make impossible the possible.

Moral: Even if you have nothing, you can get anything.  But your attitude and approach should be positive.

Discovering Happiness ...

As the famous adage goes- “Every coin has two sides” ; so is the case with life. We spend our entire life running after bigger happiness, forgetting the little joys that spring up every day. If we realise then it is these little joys that can lead us to greater happiness. It all depends on how we perceive things. If we have positive frame of mind then everything appears fine to us. On the other hand, if we think negatively then it will reflect in our actions and expressions. All in all, it is nobody else but us who can decide for ourselves that we want to be happy or not. We should appreciate both joys and sorrows and treat them equally with élan. Surely, we will discover happiness!

“We plant saplings. We nurture them. One day they rise above all. And we rejoice with them.” 
Every individual is born as a small sapling growing under the care of family members and nature. Every day we start with a new hope and face the challenges of life to grow above all. As each year passes by, we struggle daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. Only thing is we need to plan something great every time we start with something new. In order to be great, we need to be balanced in life. Balance comes when you nurture your roots. Your roots include your core values, your moral ethics, foundation and most importantly your bond with your family. Take time to revel in the joyful song of the birds, the splash of a bubbling brook, the whisper of the wind through the trees, and the roar of the ocean's waves. These sounds can deeply nourish your soul.......
The sparks of Divinity and love can reach into the darkness and transform it. However, there may be times when you need to shine your heart extra brightly because others may be struggling to keep their spark alive. Let your light bring hope to a situation that feels dark and hopeless......
Nurture your roots and strive to achieve something great this day, week, month and year. Keep the spark alive and keep going…..…….

Teachers----soul of every educated mind!!

Teachers are unarguably the soul of every young bud who is dipped in the ocean of education. Teachers not only provide them the direction to navigate in the competitive waters of education but also helps them nurture there emotional and intellectual quotient to a great extent. A good teacher means hundreds and thousands of good students who in turn will become responsible citizens of our nation. No other job has such pious and responsible stakes of treating young minds as that of a school or college teacher.

Teachers are the pepper in the dish of bright future , so one has to maintain the right mix of ethical standards and follow disciplined procedures to make sure of portraying right set of exemplary values in young minds.

Teacher is not just a preacher but a overall mentor of dynamic and fresh minds.

“To err is human to forgive is divine” very truly said but it is very difficult to forgive other people’s mistakes and ignore their shortcomings. Only a person connected to God can do it. 
We being a pure and powerful soul have all the qualities of God. We just need to be aware about it. Every soul on this Earth has own journey. Some evolve very fast and reach to be Godlike. But, some need to really work hard to move forward and rise up from their own self.
A mother always forgives her child for his/her mistakes after reprimanding him. Whatever her child has done, in her eyes her child is always learning. That is why we always put a mother next to God only.
Forgiving can be easily done if we just start looking at every creature as a soul – a part of God only. Then it’ll be easier to understand the erroneous behavior / act of other person and then forgive him / her from the core of your heart. On the other hand you’ll be also improving and moving ahead in your journey by polishing your soul and uplifting it nearer to the height of God.

The phenomenon of liquids coating rough surfaces in the form of films or droplets is commonplace. But how can we tell in what conditions a liquid will form a continuous film or just isolated drops? Existing theory generally describe ideally smooth surfaces, which are not so relevant in the real world. Now for the first time, scientists have developed a general theory that provide an answer to the question of film or droplets for rough surfaces. Liquids in large amounts are extraordinarily adaptable. They will fill any type of vessel and adapt their outer shape of any surface or border. Microscopically thin films of liquid, however, are a different story. They must mediate between the rough surface of an object and the free surface of the liquid, which always aims to be as smooth as possible due to the influence of surface tension. Now, researchers have succeeded in establishing a general theory of the phenomenon, which is valid for the vast majority of natural surfaces. In the calculation, they describes the roughness as statistical height distribution, since the peaks and troughs occur in disordered arrangements. The only conditions are that the roughness is shallow, and similar over the whole surface. This leads to amazingly simple expressions that requires not more than school Mathematics. The new equations reveal that the behavior of liquids depends quite simply on two parameters: the contact angle, which gives the angle of the surface of the liquid against the substrate, and the vapour pressure in the surrounding air (i.e. the humidity). In these cases, physicists speak of a transition between two phases. In the wet phase, the liquid forms a practically continuous film over the rough surface. Almost all the microscopic troughs are filled, and only occasionally does a particularly high peak break the surface. In the dry phase, however, large portions of the surface remains untouched by the liquid, as it clumps together into droplets. “ The system always selects the option that requires least energy in function of the vapour pressure and contact angle ".
