"Stories have no end; countries have no lines. Every thing you feel you know May be worked upon and bettered."
As children, you envy the world of adults – their freedom, their confidence, their achievements, independence, affluence. That world seems a fascinating contrast to your restricted world of school, academics, discipline and hard work. But, remember, the grass is always greener on the other side. Your parents did not get where they are, overnight. It has been a long journey of commitment, hurdles, setbacks, toil and sacrifice to build the life which you now enjoy.
Life is a journey of learning, from every source and opportunity, every interaction, success, failure, achievement. This path of exploration and discovery, taking small but sure steps towards excellence, is what education is all about. At G. D. Goenka, this year there were many opportunities for you to explore, discover and learn. The Annual Day was a showcase for the immense talent that is inherent in each of you, whether it was acting, dancing, singing, organizing or coordinating . Sportiva fostered in all the young ones, a spirit of team work, discipline and fitness. The excursions were direct sources of knowledge, encouraging you to develop an interest in the exploration of the environment, developing powers of observation, judgement and problem solving abilities, instilling qualities of resourcefulness, initiative and cooperation.
Enjoy every part of this journey that leads to your future. It is the only time you are not burdened by responsibilities. Listen to your parents talk about their childhood and notice how their eyes sparkle. That is the joy of childhood. Make the most of it to enrich yourselves and work steadily to build your future.
