Rector's Message

Dear Friends,                                                                                                                                                                     02.01.2019

Wish you a Happy and Grace filled New Year.

New Year is about change. And it’s definitely not about changing others. It’s an opportunity for each one of us to change ourselves little better every year.

Most often, we have words in surplus but meaningless. But imagine, if we start losing one day of our life for each meaningless word we utter, how short our lives will be.

In the coming year,

SPEAK in such a way that others love to listen to you.

And more importantly,

LISTEN in such a way that others love to speak to you.

We all think that we live only once but the truth is that we all die only once but live every moment of our lives. Live every moment to make your life meaningful. Do and say things that make you and your life meaningful to you and others. That’s how we find the purpose of our lives.

If we look for perfections in our lives,

a perfect husband

an ideal wife

obedient children

peaceful neighbours

understanding boss

talented staff

noble friends

We will never be happy in our life. Being happy doesn’t mean everything is perfect in our lives but it means that you have decided to look beyond the imperfections.

Accept what is

Let go off what was

And have faith in what will be.

No matter how hard and bad the past was, you can always begin again.

Live in the moment

Create meaningful connections / Limit social media

Focus on the positive

Be generous

Practice random kindness

Choose to be happy

Give more compliments

Merry everything and be happy always!

Dear Parents,                                                                                                                                                                    1st June 2018

Is there anyone teaching our kids HOW TO FACE SUCCESS or FAILURE in life?

Our children are to be taught the consequences of SUCCESS and FAILURE.

Our children need to know that success is only momentary and if they really want to be successful, they need to be constantly dissatisfied with their success and move from GOOD to BETTER and then towards BEST.

Our children should realize that they can’t bask in the glory of the past.

If Success is so critical, imagine how much more we need to prepare our children for FAILURE. We need to make our children realize that SUCCESS and FAILURE are not opposites but two outcomes of the same process

There is WISDOM in both and we need to prepare our children to Fail successfully.

I would like to quote the inspirational words of John C. Maxwell, the great inspirational author.


The only way to make failure useful is to learn from it.

Rise above any resistance you may meet at the course of your dream. Keep your eyes on your dreams. Life tests the big dreamers – the passionate revolutionaries. Succeed; then move from Good to Best.

Let’s fail forward and learn wisdom out of it and reach our dreams.

May I take this opportunity to wish all of you a wonderful start in the upcoming academic year irrespective of the outcomes, SUCCESS or FAILURE and grasp the available opportunities.

Dear Friends,                                                                                                                                                                      January 2018

                       Wish you a very happy & grace filled New Year. May Joy & Success be yours all through this year.

If you ask most people what is their one major objective in life, they would probably give you a vague answer, such as, "I want to be successful, be happy, make a good living," and that is it. They are all wishes and none of them are clear Goals.

Goals must be SMART:

S -- specific. For example, "I want to lose weight." This is wishful thinking. It becomes a goal when I pin myself down to "I will lose 10 pounds in 90 days."
M -- must be measurable. If we cannot measure it, we cannot accomplish it. Measurement is a way of monitoring our progress.
A -- must be achievabl. Achievable means that it should be out of reach enough to be challenging but it should not be out of sight, otherwise it becomes disheartening.
R -- realistic. A person who wants to lose 50 pounds in~30 days is being unrealistic.
T -- time-bound. There should be a starting date and a finishing date.

                                                                            All the very best & God bless you….
