Some Thoughts to Ponder – on Becoming a Better Student

This is a power point presentation, made on the occasion of a Seminar on Becoming a Better Student, at Avanthi PG College.

An attempt is made to draw the attention to the inspiring words of Thinkers – with a view to develop reflection, retrospection and respect for the wisdom – to cut across religion, geography, creed or any such disintegrating influences.

Please do spare some time, go through and I am sure, you will agree.
