Dreaming Success
A dream is a hope, a wish and an aspiration. Dreams are our ultimate destination, which represents what and why in our life. People always shy away from following their dreams. This is because they doubt their success.  They are always pulled down with the fear of failure. If we are confident and do not lose faith in ourselves, then we can attain success easily and fulfill our dreams. If we build castles in the air, we should make solid foundation underneath first, then they will not be lost. The foundation  should be in the form of hard work, perseverance and determination. If a mountain of troubles comes your way, don't sit to cry, but instead try and try. Dream is your right, but for that it is your duty to struggle. To achieve the sky and to fly, will power is what you need.
Don't forget the words of William Arthur ‘If you can dream it, you can become it.

हिंदी दिवस
हिंदी दिवस
अपनी समग्रता में
खुसरो,जायसी का खुमार है,
तुलसी का लोक मंगल है,
सुर का वात्सल्य और
मीरा का  प्रेम है।
हिंदी दिवस
कबीर का संदेश है,
बिहारी का चमत्कार है,
धनानंद  की पीर है ,
पंत की सुषमा और,
महादेवी की आँखों का नीर है।
वाचक: (कृष्ण  गोपाल दवे)
(NOTE: This poem was recited by Mr. Krishen Gopal on the occasion of Hindi Day)
The word ‘Examination’ is what the students have always feared. It demands a lot of concentration. The students should learn to de-stress and manage time and energy. Examinations are not so harsh in today's world then why should we fear. Grading system today has changed everything. No one wants to go through exams, as the outcome is not known. Grades ease the stress, since competitions to the decimal level is eliminated. Parents are also strict with their children during examinations. They want their child to be toppers, which increases their stress.
Hard- working and serious students are adversely affected. But I want to give a message to my dear friends that they should not fear exams. They must just perform, enjoy and study finer points of a subject.
