Once you realize how valuable you are, you will find it hard to keep the company of those who do not.
Kindness is often mistaken for weakness, when in fact it is the opposite. Kindness comes from the wells of strength, confidence and humility.
Thanks for trying; at least you've did something, unlike those who just gave the instructions.
7.4 decades ago, while the world slept, India arose to freedom and democracy. Today, we rejoice on entering the 75th year of freedom. During this time, we have seen many ups and downs, the best of times and not-so-good-times, but in the last year or so, Corona Virus has taken its toll on my country. This dreaded Disease, made the roads lonely. The hustle and bustle of the cities ended as the Country moved from one lock-down to another. It took away our freedom to go from one place to another. The economy on its way to becoming a Trillion Dollar Economy, suddenly started showing negative figures. The health system of my Country, collapsed or was very near it. The Virus had to be fed, the choice was between Life, or Livelihood.
The education system struggled. But I feel proud of the DAV teachers, who quickly adopted the online teaching systems while knowing that their path led through uncharted waters.
Now as the Virus declines, and the country is in the process of complete un-lockdown, our economy once again shows signs of recovery. The DAV Staff and their Students, are waiting and wanting to get back to their classes, so that normal teaching and learning process can once again commence.
Oh my dear Almighty, that on this day when India gained Freedom, I pray and beseech you to please give us Freedom from this dreaded disease. We, at DAV, fully understand that mankind has misused your creation - Nature. We have abused the environment. We have polluted the waters and are gradually making the air unbreathable. We assure you and make a solemn promise that we, on our own part, shall adopt systems to purify the environment, and shall make the mankind aware of their follies, and motivate them to do likewise.
So, dear brothers and sisters, let us pledge to work together to help maintain the balance between “Punch Tatva” - Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space, so that we may all enjoy total and complete Freedom. -
शान्ति कीजिए प्रभु त्रिभुवन में । शान्ति कीजिए
जल में, थल में और गगन में, अन्तरिक्ष में, अग्नि पवन में, औषधि, वनस्पति, वन, उपवन में,
सकल विश्व में, जड़ चेतन में । शान्ति कीजिए
शान्ति राष्ट्र निर्माण सृजन में, नगर ग्राम में और भवन में, जीवमात्र के तन में मन में,
और जगत के हो कण कण में । शान्ति कीजिए ।।
All the best and have a great Independence Day.
