  • That time, I was not only ASTONISHED but in DILEMMA also.
  • then he taught me that success and failure are part of our life.
  • We should not take these things to our hearts and focus on the future to improve ourselves. I still follow her with this advice.
  • That day, I relaxed for a few days and started studying again with full concentration. I cleared my exams WITH FLYING COLOURS.
  • Even now I do the same whenever I feel DOWN IN THE DUMPS. I have never met anyone so calm and AMICABLE person who tries to be kind to others equally regardless of their gender and age.
  • Due to these reasons, I respect and love my grandfather
