  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    One of the genius writers of 20th century, Hermann Hesse, Nobel Laureate and my most favorite author, wrote: "Most people...are like a falling leaf that drifts and turns in the air, flutters, and falls to the ground. But a few others are like stars which travel one defined path: no wind reaches them, they have within themselves their guide and path." I like this quote, because it is so enlightening and powerful. It's also a constant reminder that you are the Star, and you must maintain your character - no matter what others say or do. Also not to forget that the Star does have ability to turn into Supernova, which brightens the Universe with such a powerful light that can only come from millions of Suns. Always strive to be that shining Star, and ultimately Supernova, to illuminate the world.

  4. Adam Smith:
