Should we be afraid of failure

Fear of failureFailure in school is a word which now a days is getting very common .Some of the students who are not able to perform good are advised either to take TC or repeat one year. Most of the students which have been advised this is not able to perform consistently throughout the year. Now the most of the parents think that the repetition is wastage of time, so by using their contacts or money they will be able to make him/her to go for next class in same school or in other school. I want to ask from readers of this blog which way is correct and why?My opinion is that if they have to grow they have to face the failure. otherwise they will not be able to enjoy success .There are so many stories regarding success after failure .Few years backI got a student from reputed schoolwho get failed in eleventh ,instead of taking asfate ,he make list of errors he committedand decidedto work hard. He gets selected in various engineering exam. Why parents do not understand that coping with…

poem contributed by deepika kukreja

This poem is contributedby deepika kukreja  she wrote -I saw some very beautiful stories in your blog.I have a poem to add :I Asked GodI asked God to take my pain away.
God said, No.
It is not for me to take away,
but for you to give it up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No.
Her spirit was whole,
her body was only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience.
God said, No.
Patience is a by-product of tribulations,
it isn't granted, it is earned.

I asked God to give me happiness.
God said, No.
I give you blessings,
Happiness is up to you.

I asked God to spare me pain.
God said, No.
Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares
and brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said, No.
You must grow on your own,
but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said, No.
I will give you life
so that you may enjoy all things.

काँच की बरनी और दो कप चाय एक बोध कथा

जीवन में जब सब कुछ  एक साथ और जल्दी-जल्दी  करने की इच्छा होती है,
 सब कुछ तेजी  से पा लेने की इच्छा होती है , और हमें लगने लगता है कि दिन के चौबीस घंटे भी कम पड़ते हैं, उस समय ये
 बोध कथा , "काँच की बरनी और दो कप चाय" हमें याद आती  है ।
 दर्शनशास्त्र के एक प्रोफ़ेसर कक्षा में आये और उन्होंने छात्रों से कहा कि वे आज जीवन का एक महत्वपूर्ण पाठ पढाने वाले हैं...

 उन्होंने अपने साथ लाई एक काँच की बडी़ बरनी (JAR) टेबल पर रखा और उसमें टेबल टेनिस की गेंदें डालने लगे और तब तक डालते रहे
 जब तक कि उसमें एक भी गेंद समाने की जगह नहीं बची उन्होंने छात्रों से पूछा - क्या बरनी पूरी भर गई ? हाँ, आवाज आई...
फ़िर प्रोफ़ेसर साहब ने छोटे-छोटे कंकर उसमें भरने शुरु किये, धीरे-धीरे बरनी को हिलाया तो काफ़ी सारे कंकर उसमें जहाँ जगह खाली थी , समा गये, फ़िर से प्रोफ़ेसर साहब ने पूछा, क्या अब बरनी भर गई है, छात्रों ने एक बार फ़िर हाँ.. कहा.  अब प्रोफ़ेसर साहब ने रेत की थैली से हौले-हौले उस बरनी में रेत डालना शुरु किया , वह रेत भी उस जार में जहाँ संभव था बैठ गई, अब
 छात्र अपनी नादानी पर हँसे...
फ़िर प्रोफ़ेसर सा…

lessons for life

Nice story sent to me by sanchit garg
A successful business man was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor to take over the business. Instead of choosing one of  his directors or his children, he decided to do something different.He called all the young executives in his company together. 'It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO,' he said. 'I have decided to choose one of you.'The young executives were shocked, but the boss continued. 'I am going to give each one of you a seed today - a very special seed. I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next CEO.'One man, named Henry, was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed. He went home and excitedly, told his wife the story. She helped him get a pot, soil and compost and he planted the seed.Every d…

Relation between applied and pure science

TOP ARTICLE | In The Name Of Science11 Mar 2009, 0005 hrs IST, Stephen Quake

The snobbish idea that pure science is in some way superior to applied science dates to antiquity, when Plutarch says of Archimedes: "Regarding the business of mechanics and every utilitarian art as ignoble and vulgar, he gave his zealous devotion only to those subjects whose elegance and subtlety are untrammelled by the necessities of life."

The reality appears to have been quite different, as Archimedes was not just the greatest mathematician of the ancient world, but also a clever inventor who drew inspiration from numerous practical problems. Archimedes was one of the first to think deeply about fluid physics, and while many people know the famous story about his discovery of the principle of buoyancy (he saw the water level rise as he stepped into the bath, then ran naked through the streets yelling "eureka") few know exactly what he was looking for ("…

The Difference between Focusing on Problems and Focusing on Solutions

Case 1*When NASA began the launch of astronauts into space, they found out that the
pens wouldn't work at zero gravity (ink won't flow down to the writing surface).
To solve this problem, it took them one decade and $12 million. They developed a pen that worked at zero gravity, upside down, underwater, in practically any surface including crystal and in a temperature range from below freezing to over 300 degrees C. And what did the Russians do...??       They used a
Pencil!!!*

Case 2* One of the most memorable case studies on Japanese management was the case of the empty soap box, which happened in one of Japan 's biggest cosmetics companies. The company received a complaint that a consumer had bought a soap box that was empty. Immediately the authorities isolated the problem to the assembly line, which transported all the packaged boxes of soap to the> delivery department. For some reason, one soap box went through the assembly line empty. Management asked its engineers t…

Challenges are necessary for growth

This story was email to me by friend
The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. But the water close to Japan has not held many fish for
decades. So to feed the Japanese population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever.
The farther the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring the fish. If the return trip took more time, the fish were not fresh. To solve this problem, fish companies installed freezers on their boats. They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer. However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen fish. And they did not like the taste of
frozen fish. The frozen fish brought a lower price. So, fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would
catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin. After a little thrashing around, they were tired, dull, and lost their fresh-fish taste. The fishing industry faced an impending crisis! But today, they get fresh-tasti…
