It is rightly said that every effort is not converted into success. But it is equally true that success does not come without efforts. Children, you are living in a dynamic, global world and to keep pace with this fast changing scenario you need to develop a broad perspective which, even while incorporating the latest developments will not take you away from your rich cultural and traditional heritage. Standing on the threshold of the future, what you need today is a positive and balanced view of life which will keep you focused even as you soar higher and higher on the wings of your dreams and ambitions. The opportunities are endless but to grab the right one and make optimum use of it, you need to groom yourselves as punctual and organized individuals who know and appreciate the value of time.
Last but not the least, let me take this opportunity to remind you of the age old maxim- when wealth is lost, something is lost but when health is lost, everything is lost. You are fortunate enough to be born in a country blessed by the sun god. Treasure the wealth of nature and grow up to be well balanced, healthy and mature individuals who are competent enough not only to take good care of themselves but of the world in general.
