Our Correspondent

Ludhiana, September 25
Dr Rajeev Gupta, consultant psychiatrist in Manas, gave a talk to students of Government Secondary School, Noorpur Bet, on problems of adolescence. He said that to remain mentally and physically fit, one had to stay away from drugs and other vices. He said drug abuse caused a number of psychological and physical problems and had destroyed career and lives of many students in Punjab.

He said students in rural areas should not feel discouraged due to limited resources, but try to progress in life. He said most of the successful people came from mediocre background “Comforts never create strength, rather they seep away one’s energy,” he added.

Dr Gupta said the secret of success was hard work and pursuing one’s goal with good spirit.
