                                         The most memorable day of my life

Essentially, a person without a definitive goal cannot experience the thrill and exhilaration of success in life. A goal must be specific and attainable and its image needs to be sharpened continually, so that it stands out vividly in your thoughts. Strong and organised purposefulness towards a definite objective tend to focus your powers into a strong motivation in attainment of your goal. For this precise reason, I make an endeavour to seek out problems, convert them to challenges and embrace them with courage. It's comforting to know that you can always count on your own abilities to help you recover from any setback and solve any problem.
Life unfolds a plethora of events as it progresses, exposing an individual to a litany of obstacles, drowning him/her into a delirium of ecstasy or sorrow. These memories, both bitter and sweet, leave an indelible mark on the mind of a person who mourn or cherish them in life.
The ingress of one such memorable moment dropped as a manna in my life a few years ago. It was indeed a grand day for me, when I was awarded the prestigious “Times of India – Student of the year 2008-09” award and appointed as the ‘House Captain’of my school on the same day. It was an exquisite moment for me to revel when my hard work had paid off, an occasion too grand for me to bask in the glory of my success. I had a widespread ambivalence towards my achievement. It was as if the air surrounding me was redolent with enthusiasm and my pulse quickened upon getting a whiff of this aroma.  Never before in my life was I embraced with such unctuous cheers, with myriad wishes and congratulations pouring in. I felt as if I was placed on a high pedestal and an aura of ecstasy suffused my veins.
Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed. This success disgruntled and chafed many of my ‘friends’ who were enviously in cahoots nitpicking and squabbling over the judgement. Unabashed by this ephemeral criticism, I was determined to carry on my responsibilities and act pragmatically to prove true to the expectations of my mentors and peers who had bestowed their trust on me. While setting a yardstick for myself, it was my goal to which I assigned the highest priority.
What a memorable day it was!
When I initiated a voyage with an intention to explore,
The intricacies of life, the surprises it had in store.
