Failure is the Stepping Stone to Success 
"It's impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default" - J.K. Rowling
The word 'Failure' is like a terror for many. Everyone is afraid to fail. No one wants to fail, but one has to remember that failure is inevitable. Great people have also failed innumerable times before they succeeded in life. For them, failure was just an attempt to learn something new. With every failure, they tried to improve themselves.
We should always have a positive look towards failures. Failure is the stepping stone to success. It is an opportunity to do better and they are learning lessons for us. Those who learn from failure are ones who sooner or later succeed in life. Such people resolve to overcome their weaknesses and shortcomings and shift to the lessons they can learn from them.
Failures and setbacks are a normal part of life. They make us understand where we can improve and encourage them to persist. Wise people always take advantage of failures, so be optimistic and learn from your failures.

नारी शक्ति
हर युग में नारी का विशिष्ट स्थान रहा है। प्राचीन समय में महिलाओं को हर प्रकार की स्वतंत्रता थी। अध्ययन- अध्यापन के अलावा विशिष्ट अवसरों पर महिलाओं का योगदान लिया जाता था। वैदिक यज्ञों में सपत्नी बैठना पुरुषों के लिए आवश्यक था। ऋग्वेद की ऋचाओं की रचना में कई विदुषी महिलाओं ने अपना सहयोग दिया। विशिष्ट गुरुकुल में बालिकाओं को शिक्षा दी जाती थी। महिलाओं को विशिष्ट स्थान देने के लिए ही देवताओं के नाम से पहले उनकी पत्नियों का नाम लिया जाता है, जैसे- सीताराम, राधेश्याम, गौरीशंकर आदि।
संस्कृत की एक सूक्ति इस पूरी बात को स्पष्ट कर देती है- यत्र नार्यस्तु पूज्यन्ते रमन्ते तत्र देवताः। अर्थात जहाँ नारियों का सम्मान होता है वहाँ देवता निवास करते हैं।
मध्यकाल में महिलाओं ने अपनी वीरता, सूझबूझ और कौशल का परिचय दिया। ऐसे में हम कई उदाहरण प्रस्तुत कर सकते हैं- रानी लक्ष्मीबाई, रजिया सुल्तान, बेगम हजरत महल इत्यादि।आज के समय में महिलाओं ने हर क्षेत्र में अपनी कुशलता का परिचय दिया है। व्यापार हो या खेल, एक प्रबंधक के रूप में हो या वैज्ञानिक। हर क्षेत्र में महिलाओं का विशिष्ट योगदान प्राप्त हो रहा है। यह प्रसन्नता का विषय है कि बालिका शिक्षा के प्रति समाज जागरूक हुआ है। बालिकाएँ शिक्षा के क्षेत्र में बालकों को भी मात दे रही है।
निश्चित रूप से महिलाएँ विशिष्ट सम्मान की अधिकारी है। मध्यकाल से वर्तमान समय तक परिस्थितियाँ सुलझी है परंतु यदि किसी प्रकार की कोई अपेक्षा कहीं है तो हमें इस पर ध्यान देना आवश्यक है।शिक्षा से ही कुरीतियों का विनाश होता है और शिक्षा से ही महिलाओं को सबल बनाया जा सकता है।

प्रशंसा 
"प्रशंसा" शब्द बाहर से छोटा दिखता है, लेकिन अगर इसे ठीक से इस्तेमाल किया जाए तो यह कुछ भी हासिल करने में मदद कर सकता है। यह शब्द किसी को प्रेरित करने के लिए सबसे शक्तिशाली शब्द है। अगर किसी को किसी निश्चित कार्य के लिए प्रशंसा मिलती है तो वह व्यक्ति हमेशा आगे के सभी कार्यों को पूरे मन से करने की कोशिश करता है। यह शब्द नकारात्मक विचारों को सकारात्मक में बदल सकता है। इस दुनिया में हर कोई अपने कार्यों के लिए प्रशंसा प्राप्त करना पसंद करता है। 
"प्रशंसा" केवल कार्यस्थलों तक ही सीमित नहीं है, बल्कि इसका उपयोग कहीं भी किया जा सकता है। अगर आपके घर में भी कोई व्यक्ति अच्छा कार्य करता है तो निश्चित रूप से उस व्यक्ति की प्रशंसा होनी चाहिए। 
इसलिए जब भी संभव हो किसी भी व्यक्ति की प्रशंसा करते रहना चाहिए, क्योंकि यह चीजों को आसान और सरल बनाने में मदद करता है। प्रशंसा केवल उसे पाने वाले पर ही नहीं, बल्कि उसे देने वाले पर भी अच्छा–खासा प्रभाव छोड़ती है। जब आप किसी की प्रशंसा करते हैं, तो आप सकारात्मक सोच रख सकते हैं, और आप अधिक से अधिक तालमेल बना सकते हैं। प्रशंसा लोगों को खुशी और आनन्द देती है। इसलिए, प्रशंसा करने में कंजूस बनने का कोई कारण नहीं है। किसी की प्रशंसा करने में समय बहुत जरूरी होता है। जैसे कि कहावत भी है कि, “लोहा गर्म है, तब मारो हथौड़ा,” जब कोई व्यक्ति प्रशंसा पाने के योग्य काम करता है, तो उसी समय और उसी जगह ही उसकी प्रशंसा करना सही है।
एक अच्छी प्रशंसा आत्मविश्वास और हिम्मत देती है। आइए हम एक दूसरे की प्रशंसा करके एक अच्छे समाज का निर्माण करें।

Significance of March 
March is the third month of the year. It has 31 days and is named after Mars, the Roman god of war.
Why Is March Called March?
The name March comes from the Latin Martius or Martius mensis, after the Roman god of war, Mars. In ancient Rome, this was also the month when armed conflicts would resume after the winter months.
● Latin - Martius mensis - Month of Mars
● Old English - Martius
● Middle English - March or Marche
When March Was the First Month
March has not always been the third month in a year. In early versions of the ancient Roman calendar, the year began with March or Martius. Because the month coincides with the time of the March equinox and the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, where the calendar originated, March was considered to be a month of new beginnings.
The months of January and February did not feature in earlier versions of the Roman calendar. They were added to the end of the year around 700 BCE and became the first months of the year around 450 BCE, pushing March to its currently held third position.

Value of Time in a Student’s Life 
Time does not wait for anyone, student should know the value of time; nowadays students are wasting their time on useless things streaming with video games , spending a lot on social media etc.. We should understand the importance of disciplined life. We should control and screen our timing and utilize that time because once time has passed it never comes back.
Changes in body and hormones take place during adolescence age in a student. During this period body works very actively. In this state a student should work on his skills and follow his goals.
Time is something that determines your present and future. If you want to achieve your goals and live your dreams, managing time is the most important thing that one must learn and practice sincerely. Time is a non renewable resource as once it’s gone it cannot be brought back .Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory so enjoy every single moment of life.

Tolerance
Tolerance is difficult to define, which may have led to limiting the study of tolerance in psychology, in favour of studying prejudice. But, unlike prejudice, tolerance can be grounded in the moral domain which offers a positive approach to examining relationships between groups of people who are different from each other. Based on its Latin origin, tolerance, or toleration as philosophers often refer to it, is most commonly viewed negatively as “putting up with” something we dislike or even hate. If a person is prepared to “put up with” something – along the lines of, I do not like the colour of your skin, but I will still serve you not to lose your custom. That person is someone who does not discriminate but remains intolerant in thoughts and beliefs.

Success
Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence. Willpower always has a success shower. Tragedy of life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal, it lies in not in having a goal. We must not look at our past mistakes but be courageous and keep moving ahead. Success is nothing but one’s happiness when we fulfill our desires. Most of the men have not achieved their destination by having some talent or opportunity presented that was at hand. Fortune favours the brave. Many people who have waited for the luck to help them have won and those who did their hard work by themselves had lost. It happens, but one shouldn’t lose hope as rightly said “Failure is the stepping stone to success. All great personalities and personages, who have left indelible prints of their lives on the sands of eternity, are the men and women who converted their failures into success. All successes originate in mind. First of all it makes its presence felt in the form of a vision, idea, inspiration, or a dream. Turning the mental concept into tangible reality requires a long effort and perseverance. The entire course that leads to successful realization of one’s dream is ridden with obstacles, discouragements, failures, and setbacks. The person who wishes to be successful and is discouraged by failures can never ever taste the manna of success. The truth is our failures our stepping stones by whose medium we reach success.

Tolerance
Tolerance refers to the capacity to endure pain or hardship. Tolerance is an essential quality to lead a life full of moral values. Tolerance is a quality which brings several other qualities associated with it such as patience, temper-controlling, etc. If a person is tolerant he/she can wisely overcome any situation and can calmly face any circumstance. In most of the cases it is seen that people generally become restless during hardships and as a result of that they make foolish decisions of which they regret throughout their life. So, it is indeed an essential quality. It is very hard to stay tolerant as it is in human nature to react to any action which takes place in front of ours. But we can acquire this quality by thinking twice before showing any reaction we can also incorporate this quality in ourselves by adapting a calm attitude towards the surrounding. At last I would like to conclude with a quote by Helen Keller “The highest result of education is tolerance.”
