Embrace examinations with open hearts

india Updated: Feb 16, 2012 11:34 IST

The countdown for the board examinations have begun. Though I still have a year to sit for it, the very mention of it lights me up. To me exams have always been special because they act as catalysts that help me to work on my weak points and achieve what I could not in the past. With every examination, one learns what he/she needs to change and how the same situation can be approached differently.

Sample papers and reference books scattered in the room give you the feel of an examination.

All my friends, who are appearing for Class 12 board examinations in particular, you have the golden opportunity to shape your career and your dreams as you wish to. It's the best time to understand your potential, capability, amplitude, your dreams and aspirations.

But ironically, for many students this phase of life is like the brightly shining stars in the dark background of the sky. The stress crushes their enthusiasm and confidence. We must invest our time preparing for the examinations rather than worrying about them. Friends, let's welcome the examinations with open hearts and give our best shot. Yes, board examinations are a high point in life but there are many more that we will face in life. Thus, don't let undue mental or physical stress take the fun away.

So in keeping with the spirit here I am wishing you all the very best for your exams.
