I wish to start my interaction with you with a small quote, '' To the world, you may be just one person but to one person, you may be the world! This person can be any one, your mother, father a teacher. When seat and see you running, jumping, shouting, cheering and seriously studying I see the different moods of an ocean within you.
Life is full of cheers but we need to be serious about approach towards life. Measure wealth not by the things you have, but by the things you have for which you would not take money. When you help your teacher in cleaning the black board you cannot measure pleasure and joy within yourself as you feel you are the 'chosen one'.
We see future of our great nation within you. Your parents see what they have not seen in themselves. So, value our feelings by small gesture by working with full potentiality which you 'have'. Studies help in living life with ease. It shapes your future with care, love and discipline. Allow your own inner light to guide you. There comes a time when you must stand alone. You must feel confident enough within yourself to follow your own dreams. You must be willing to make sacrifices. You must be capable of changing and rearranging your priorities so that your final goal can be achieved.
Sometimes, familiarity and comfort need to be challenged. There are times when you must take a few extra chances and create your own realities. Be strong enough to at least try to make your life better. Be confident enough that you won't settle for a compromise just to get by. Appreciate yourself by allowing yourself the opportunities to grow, develop, and find your true sense of purpose in this life. Don't stand in someone else's shadow when it's your sunlight that should lead the way.
I wish you to be with our Indian culture. The most glorified culture of the world. People around the world still studies Ved - Ramayan - Mahabharat - Bhagwad Gita to understand true human and pure humanity. Do not get carried over by the wind of west. Remember the dust that rises with wind has to come down on the earth. My sons and daughters of Umrigar Pariwar will rise above the ordinary. My students are confident and enthusiastic they question and strive to get answers. I see Kalpana Chawla and Indra Nuni in my daughters and Dr. Kalam to Vishwanathan Anand in my sons.
I conclude by giving thoughts of some unknown greats: " Work hard at what you like to do and try to overcome all obstacles. Laugh at your mistakes and praise yourself for learning from them.
I inspire from you.
Yours, Friend, Guide and Path Finder.
