Why this blog?
These days the newspapers/magazines and news channels are generally flooded with news about scams,scandals,accidents,terror attacks,rape cases etc.People are inadvertently feeding their minds with negativism through the media.In fact there a lot of real success stories about people doing well in competitive exams,sports,and excelling in so many fields every day in different parts of the country.These are either ignored or reported in some obscure corner of the newspaper.or shown as glimpse in some TV channel. However magazines for competitive exams publish success stories of some toppers.
Success is not measured by what you accomplish,but by the opposition you have encountered,and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.
