  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    There is a latent fire inside all of us, which is constantly burning with brightness and brilliance that guides us - all the time, and especially during the darkest moments of life. Those divine sparks of intelligence, beauty and elegance within all of us provide us with strength and courage to face the adversities. In my view, we survive through life's challenges, mainly because our inner intense fire is burning lot more strongly and brightly than the fires that are surrounding us outside. Life is thus nothing but a game of heat and light that we create, in my view, and play to win with focus and determination by driving away the chilling cold and deepest darkness around us.
