Failure is the first step towards success

Failure is the first step towards success

Do good deeds

Golu was staying with his friends in a rented flat in a city away from Palanpur village. He attended school in the morning and coaching classes in the evening. Being the only son he was pampered by his grandparents and parents. This had made him stubborn and lazy. The city life had made him an entertainment-addict.

Naresh immediately stood up and with folded hands requested the old man take his seat. Continue reading “Give generously to receive generously” »
