Learning Series 4: SELF-CONFIDENCE

In continuation with my Learning Series; adapted from a motivating and inspiring write-up which I felt would be very useful for both students and the Society as a whole with day – to – day instances, to encourage positive thinking and improve efficiency !!

SELF-CONFIDENCE (BELIEVE IN YOURSELF !)  You may be rich and intelligent. But if you donot have confidence you cannot come out and speak. Hence, apart from all your hard work, self-confidence is very important. It can be acquired through practice. Gandhiji too developed it through constant practice. It gives you inner energy.

How to Train Your Dragon:   In this movie, a young viking teenager aspires to follow his tribe’s tradition of becoming a dragon slayer. After finally capturing his first dragon, and with his chance at last gaining the tribe’s acceptance, he finds that he is no longer inferior and achieves  everything with self-confidence.cCapture.JPG

PRERANA:  The story of Kushboo Rawat : “Prerana”, is the name of the school where Rawat is  studying. Her mother died when she was just two. Her  father is a drunkard, remarried, but her stepmother died too, leaving in her care two half-siblings who are still toddlers. Patriarchal attitude, domestic violence and child marriages forced women and girl children to surrender to the male domination. Rawat might have surrendered too. But with the support she got from her teacher Urvashi Sahni, she became confident. Her father has beaten her brutally to stop the school many a time. But with developed self-confidence, Rawat stood strong and focused on her studies.  “One thing Sahni had taught me is that I’m not so weak that I should die,” says Rawat. Now she is working with the lunch suppliers and earns for the family. She was given Scholarship to go to London to participate in a Drama workshop. “What led me to start Prerana was really a faith that education was the answer to girls’ problems,” Says Sahni, who fights against early marriages and for women education.
