Students are the future leaders of the country. A person being so instead of using him as a tool for protecting one’s ego ,he should be motivated.
Life always has a positive side. Our life is worth living not only for ourselves but we can make a lot of difference in other person’s life.
Every minute in life counts. You can make or break yours and other person’s life in a minute.
Honesty is the best policy in this world. If you have that you win every battle of your life. If you don’t have that then no achievement will be worth it.
Last but not least. You should have the courage to stand by your principals and express your opinion freely.
