Quality more important than quantity
From Our Correspondent

LUDHIANA, July 14 City boys and girls have brought laurels to the city. In this continuing series, let us see how these students worked hard and what are the factors that took them to the top.

Dipin Preet Kaur: "It is the quality of time you spend on studies rather than the quantity of time you spend which takes you to the top. Concentration is must. Sitting with books for long hours proves to be of no help. I preferred to have a thorough reading of course books, rather than going for big and bulky books."

She also emphasizes on classroom teaching. Dipin has secured the 185th rank in Punjab PMET. She also cleared the CBSE test and secured the 169th position in CET Chandigarh. Dipin secured 83.2 per cent marks in Class XII.

Dipin attributes her success to her parents, teachers and friends who maintained a healthy competition. She has a word of thanks for her mother who was a great help. She used to sit up late night with her while studying.

Dipin says that all candidates taking up medicine should put in hard labour and gain complete knowledge of their subject.

Ravinder Kaur: Ravinder is probably the only girl from Ludhiana to qualify for the IIT-JEE. She stood 50th in CET (Punjab) and has joined the Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology (Patiala) in computer science and engineering.

Ravinder owes her success to her hard work. She is thankful to Mr R.S. Patail, Principal, DAVP School, who always encouraged and guided her.

Influenced by her schoolteachers, Jaswinder, Tejinder and Suresh, she owes her success to them. She has hardly watched TV for the past two years.

Her twin brothers helped her a lot by not disturbing her.

Parents, she says acted as a candle which dispelled the darkness of stress and strain.Back


Kids celebrate sawan
From Our Correspondent

LUDHIANA, July 14 Aao hum sawan manaein, jhumein, nachein, gaien; jhoole lein barish mein nahayein, kheer puoy khayein. Small kids at Lovely Lotus Nursery Play School, BRS Nagar, here had a nice time today as they were celebrating sawan or the beginning of the rainy season.

The kids splashed in the pool, had a go at the swings, sang sawan kiddie songs, danced and ate puas to their fill. It was an occasion to celebrate because so many new facilities had been created at the school after renovation.

Though the school opened on the July 11, today was the first day that the children availed themselves of the new splash pools, new colourful plastic chairs, new rainbow mats, new designer curtains and designer bed covers. It was a splash of colours all around, everything wearing a new and fresh look like young green leaves on trees in the rainy season. The children liked to linger everywhere.Back
