The Strength In Scars - Tejas Kumar

Humans never escape from their wounds. Their wounds can later be a thing with immense potential. Scars can make us stronger than ever. The world is going to give you beauty but pain as well. It is difficult to move on, it breaks you down in ways you never expected to be broken. 

But when you are broken, don't feel left over instead recall your memories, look at the sacrifice, and create yourself again but this time more stronger and more compassionate.
Find more scars that life has left for you to be stronger and stronger.

Be THANKFUL for everything you get in your life.

Tolerance - Khushi Badgeri


Tolerance is the ability to deal with something annoying or where we disagree or show unwillingness to accept the situation.

Tolerance also means the patience to listen carefully and to treat people with dignity and respect while you disagree silently. Tolerance has limits. tolerance also means treating others the way you would like to be treated. Tolerance is a sign of wisdom and care. Let me share a small incident that happened with me. There was a girl in my class who would keep irritating and bullying me. At times she would be very much testing my patience. I would always try to keep my mind cool and avoid talking to her.. Once it  so happened that we were given a similar science project in our class. She was so overconfident that she thought her project would be the best. I kept myself cool and wished for the best project win and to my surprise my project was not only selected and appreciated but also kept for display in the school. There I understood the true meaning of patience and tolerating the person in the situation was rewarded. 
So my Dear friends, tolerance is keeping our minds cool in any situation and acting wisely.

Reading - a skill that needs rebirth! - Shilpika Pandey

Those who read, read fluently, write well, and speak well!

Reading is one of the best activities to keep your mind focused, enhance your vocabulary, 
improve pronunciation and inculcate the habit of making reading an essential part of one's regimen.

Reading is a catalyst for an intellectual, thinking mind that sharpens analyzing and brainstorming skills. An old-school activity that is irreplaceable and much needed for our students to keep them away from the hovering world of social media and make them add to their wisdom, knowledge and a composed lifestyle.

When an individual picks up a book to read, he or she unfolds a lesson to remember and change the mindset, thus changing life for the better. Reading helps build conversations, and meaningful conversations take place. So keep reading!

God the creator - Nishan Karki

God is the divine power who gave us many qualities like wisdom, kindness and empathy. We should take advantage of these qualities to maintain peace worldwide.

If we keep the peace, we can live a happy and simple life with fewer demerits and more benefits.

We should thank God or the creator for filling us with these qualities.

Honesty - Rehan Raza

A major component for developing moral character is honesty. Honesty helps in developing good attributes like kindness, discipline, truthfulness, moral integrity and more. Lying, cheating, lack of trust, stealing, greed, and other immoral attributes have no honesty. Honest people are sincere, trustworthy and loyal, throughout their life. Honesty is valuable, and it is a habit of utmost importance. There are famous quotes, said by a great personality like “Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom”. It holds good due to its ability to build, shape and motivate integral values in one's life.

First of all, honesty promotes authenticity. It reflects one’s own feelings and thoughts. Honesty certainly helps people in knowing who you really are. Hence, one must be honest in self-expression.

Honesty removes fear from the heart and makes a person courageous and confident. It certainly takes a huge amount of courage to speak the truth. Speaking truth is a sign of bravery. The one who lies is a coward. Speaking falsehood is a sign of low self-confidence.

Another notable benefit of honesty is maturity. Honesty certainly reflects the maturity of a person. An individual is probably mature if he regularly speaks the truth. Furthermore, a mature person speaks the truth in a non-hurtful way.

Honesty strengthens and improves relationships between people. It certainly helps in bringing people together. Most noteworthy, it fosters a connection between individuals.
