Trying is Better than Crying

What do we all often do when the situation is really challenging and gigantic ahead? Well, I believe each one of us has a different answer to this question on an individual level. Some would let the things come and go as it is without putting in any effort, keeping their fingers crossed for the God to do some wonders for them. Some would cry and exaggerate their sorrows to expel their burden and exhibit to the world; probably they are attention seekers. But, there are a few who try not to cry but overcome their hurdles. They are the ones who add a difference not only to their but the lives of others as well.

Undoubtedly, it is better trying than crying as trying and crying signifies winning and losing respectively and the difference in the two is most often not quitting.
Life is a journey with all the things transient in nature. Nothing is permanent except the change. Every bright sunny morning is followed by deep, dark, dense night. Every colorful spring has to face a dull autumn as well. Similarly every success story has a fall of failure.

 But, failure doesn’t mean that one should drown himself in the ocean of hues and cries as failure is not ultimate, just like success is not final.

It is the indomitable willpower and the courage to continue no matter what. It is what something that counts.

One must understand that no mistake or failure is as bad as to stop and not to try again. We must keep in mind that no dream has an expiry date. Failure doesn’t mean that the game is over. It means to try again a fresh with an experience added to it. What the world needs today are strong minds who can tackle situations to the highest order, who don’t fret the failures though they seem to be more public than success.

Remember, seeds of defeat are actually sown during the act of winning, whether it is a sporting encounter or a personal feud, because the losers are already getting together and planning their next move, their comeback, so that they can regain their lost glory. It is only a matter of time before the tables are turned, before the tide is reversed, and the winner is on the losing side.

Thus believe in your ability and the possibility of your goals as it is the bedrock to motivate you. It also provides you with incredible strength to overcome difficulties and make dreams come true.

 It’s well proven that though a person is unable to go to the end of the road, keep trying will make his life better.

So keep trying and stop crying as trying is better than crying. Well said by Samuel Beckett that “Ever Tried, Ever Failed, No matter what, Try again, Fail again, Fail better.

The right place to be in…

What would a sporty child want in a school?

The answer is: a basking pool, sizeable spaces, vociferous, tough tug of wars, extravagant events, marathon maniacs and celebrations of true talents.

What would a studious child want in a school?

The answer is: individual attention, unflinching advice, career counselling, requisite confabulations, privileged classrooms and fervent, missionary, competent teachers!

What would a creative and fun loving child want in a school?

The answer is: beckoning lawns, neighing, quacking denizens, embellished edifices, musical equipments, aesthetic locales and unique artistic inspiration all over!

The Mann School is an ultimate quenching rivulet to the varied thirsts of variegated inquisitive seekers. It takes care of all that a child needs and prepares him/her to face it all like a stalwart. The Mann School is not just a school, it is an experience that is striking and worth happening to oneself.

Ah, how lucky, how fulfilling does one feel being member of such an other-worldly ambience --- I come again and again to wonder over!

Children constitute a nation’s future human resources. It is, therefore, very important that their welfare receives the highest importance in the society.

The development of children should receive crucial attention particularly in Indian scenario as they constitute nearly 34 per cent of the total population. This is the most sensitive and vulnerable period of life. The foundations of their future are laid at this stage. Obviously, the foundation must be stable and strong.

The great Indian economist Amartya Sen reminds us, “ You reap what you sow and you don’t reap what you don’t sow” Now it is the time to sow properly the future of this great Indian nation by investing properly in children.

As far as their development is concerned “ Development refers to a process of change in growth and capabilities over time, as function of both maturation and interaction with the environment”. Thus development of a child includes:-
·        Growth
·        Capability
·        Maturation
·        Interaction with the environment.
Thus, the development of children is a series of orderly progression of change towards maturity. ‘Orderly’ refers to the arrangement of the changes.

Development of the Whole Child

Infact,the goal of child development is to enable him to lead a most satisfying life in the environment in which he lives. A child is believed to be a gift of God. He must be nurtured with care and affection within the family and the society to get the best out of him. As a parent or teacher we should try our best to get this best out of a child and make his process of progress smooth, easy and effective.
