Good morning to all!
Today, as we stand at the threshold of a new academic year, its time to take stock of the year gone by. Last year was picture perfect. We got extremely good results in 10th and 12th standards, we had a wonderful Sargam, and many other celebrations as well. Each one of us have, in one way or the other, contributed to making last year the best. But it doesn't mean that our duties end there. Each year we are faced with new challenges, new examinations, everything is new. Its true that we did our best last year. But that cannot be the end of hard work and duties. This time, with new challenges ahead, we should bring out the better of the best. Each and everyone of us sitting here are an year older than the last. So now the challenge we face is the one from within, the challenge of personal growth. Life itself is an examination, but in between there are tests to see how closer we are to success. Therefore this time the challenge is not from outside. We have already proved to the outside world what we are, but we haven't faced the challenge that lies within us. The challenge is to look into us, to introspect, and find out who we are really on the inside than the outside. Once we know who we are on the inside, we will be able to find out the minute flaws in the picture perfectness of last year which are visible only to the ones who made it. And then, me, you and all of us, would work to rectify those mistakes and produce a masterpiece with lesser flaws than last year.
The time for renewal has come. Though it has been some time since 2014 started, new year for us, teachers and students, has just arrived. We can open a new page of our diary and jot down new resolutions, hopes and goals and work towards personal excellence. On this occasion when the sun shines hazily over Devagiri CMI Public School, I extend a cordial welcome to the captain of our ship, Fr. John, Fr. Johnny, the management, PTA members, parents, teachers, non teaching staff and my dear friends. Together with the blessing of God Almighty, lets start painting our masterpiece, our new academic year.
