Thought for the day
Literacy is not the end of education
nor even the beginning
It is only one of the means whereby
men and women can be educated.
Literacy in itself - is no education.

Thought for the day
Let a man raise himself by his own efforts. Let him not degrade himself.
Because a person's best friend or his worst enemy is none other than his own self.
From Bhaagwad Geeta, chapter 6, Verse 5
Word of the day
Meaning: The fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect (Oxford Definition)
Thought for the day
The word SWARAJ is a sacred word
a Vedic word
meaning self-rule and self-restraint
freedom from all restraints
which 'Independence' often means.
