Just Learn To Do Good…

“Earth is a big learning centre where we learn that pleasures, money, possessions, knowledge, and work, all have limited value. None of these pursuits should be the focal point of our lives. The focal point, instead, should be to develop character that includes fair play, unselfishness, humility, courage, faithfulness, honesty, truthfulness, and treating others with respect.”*

Today, we celebrate the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan as the Teachers’ Day. Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan (05 September 1888-17 April 1975), teacher, scholar, philosopher and stateman, was the first Vice President of India (1952-1962) and the second President of India (1962-1967). He was honoured with the Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award. The best tribute that we can pay to him is to become life long autonomous learners, spreading goodness around…On this Teachers’ Day, let us also express our gratitude to all those teachers, who became a part of our journey of life and helped us become what we are today…

Anshu Jamsenpa: A Woman of Indomitable Spirit

Anshu Jamsenpa, a 32 year old mother of two and a mountaineer from Arunachal Pradesh, India, created a history on 21 May 2017 by becoming the first woman to scale Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world {8848-metre (29028 feet)}, twice in a span of five days. This ascent was her fifth overall and the second after 16 May 2017. Wow…what an extraordinary achievement. She has also had the distinction of conquering the Mount Everest earlier in 2011 when she scaled the peak twice within a span of 10 days and again in 2013. What a remarkable feat of courage and determination… She displays tremendous resolve, passion, perseverance and strength of character.
