  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Most of the positive things in life are often preceded by negativities - paradoxically! For example, we gain amazing strength only after realizing our weaknesses. We learn to love unconditionally only after experiencing the hate directed towards us. We become more tolerant and proponents of Equality only after the discrimination that world throws at us. We thus grow and mature with the flow of life, always negating the negativity, and moving upwards and onwards. - Deo
