[box_dark]What does success denote? Does it imply only scoring good marks in examination? Can scholastic achievement alone decide one’s future?[/box_dark] Each person may harbour different views on success. It is primarily an individual’s attitude that contributes to his or her success.

It’s beautiful everything that was unsaid by us!! Everything was cold. But it was not the weather though Shillong is a very cold place! It was the silence that suddenly surrounded us!!

Gazing at the sky above us, and hoping for a bright day to dawn, we Read more
