Collector Dr Sarveshwar Narendra Bhure interacted with meritorious students of Class XII, their teachers and parents in his chamber on Thursday. After felicitating the children who had won top places in the merit list he shared with them the golden rules of success. He said that he believes in the philosophy of Swami Vivekananda that says the invisible line that suggests the end of intelligence is where hard work should begin. Replying to the queries of the students, Collector shared the golden rules with them that should prove to be useful in preparing for competitive examinations and career. When a student Laxmi said that she wanted to become a collector like him, the collector in his response asked to aim to become a better one than him. Always set a benchmark above the existing norms. Citing an example he said that in English there is the word “complacency” which if translated in Hindi means “Thehrav” (stagnation). Once a person becomes satisfied with work, the chances of doing better are gone. Therefore, he suggested that always be inquisitive and try to learn and keep moving forward. He explained that he is a collector now and had prepared had for this competitive exam, but now after having won the bigger challenge is to do good work for people. The Collector added that study material for competitive exams will be made available to them by the District Administration.
The Collector also explained in detail the difference between arrogance and pride. He said that being a bit under-confident is better than being overconfident, as a little stress usually increases productivity. The Collector said that one should be humble in success and not arrogant. There is a very fine line that changes confidence into arrogance. Therefore, it needs regular introspection to understand the difference. In reply to a question, he made it clear that any career should be considered just a means of employment; rather it should enhance your quest for learning, which ultimately results in development and enrichment of personality.
One does not know everything hence taking feedback is necessary, said Dr Bhure and added that if you want to progress then you should learn from others constantly. Taking the opinion of others before reaching a decision helps one choose the best option. Pride in life is destructive and being humble, curious is the key to success in life.
District Education Officer Pravas Singh Baghel, who was present during this, said that students will be provided coaching for competitive examinations and also career guidance. Assistant Director Amit Ghosh was also present.
