- Your Achievements that makes you feel high.
An Achievement is not only the rewards or awards. It's something that I define as the eternal satisfactions that I receive from my deeds and hard work.
When I became a mother for the first time and the warm smile that I got on my face was an achievement that makes me felt high. I do also believe nurturing children being a single mother and holding their hand confidently and independently as a father and as a mother is also an achievement for all the mother in the universe.
Being a lady police, I help the widows,divorcees and helpless women who are the victims of domestic violence, making them more strong and more confident. I felt high and satisfied.
- Define the true beauty.
A true beauty is having a beautiful heart, a beautiful heart is a kind hearted, loving, caring and sharing to others. A true beauty is the inner state of mind which evolve when there is a sense of satisfaction, self respect, self confident, self esteemed of oneself.
True Beauty is about good moral character. True beauty lies more on action than physical appearances. A good act done by a person is ever remembered by people even after she or he dies. Maintaining a good personal hygiene with clean surroundings adds meaning to the true beauty. I quote the saying " Cleanliness is next to God " based on this theme maintaining a personal hygiene makes us feel like spiritual purity and divinely.
- What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?
A complete, healthy and happy family is having a mutual understanding, trust and respect among the family members. A happy family needs love, caring, sharing, learning, solving and growing together with other members. Mother plays a vital role in maintaining the family.
The most important thing in family is integrity rather than money. Money can do many things but not all. It is essential for running a smooth family like providing education and healthy food to the children etc. for complete, healthy and happy family.
A clean and healthy ambience would reflect healthy and happy family.

Our country has a huge number of youths and people who are energetic and productive, due to poverty and lack of education and guidance , they are using narcotic drugs, tobacco, alcohol and suffering from many diseases.

We need to be cautious and take measures to control by planting trees, proper disposal of plastics, polythenes.

Sportsmanship means treating others fairly, respect for others, maintaining self control while dealing with others. The term is related to sports and players.
Sportsmanship comes from cooperation, accepting responsibility, respect and cheers for good plays shown by others. It is an act of following rules and regulations, without breaking rules to gain goals of the game. It is about showing ethics, integrity and discipline while playing , accepting the act of defeat instead of blaming others, without making excuses.
