One notable figure who has inspired countless individuals is Mahatma Gandhi. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, commonly known as Mahatma Gandhi, was a political and spiritual leader in India during the Indian independence movement. His life story is a testament to the power of nonviolent resistance and his unwavering commitment to justice and equality.

Gandhi was born in 1869 in Porbandar, Gujarat, India, and he grew up in a middle-class family. He studied law in London and then worked as a lawyer in South Africa. It was during his time in South Africa that Gandhi witnessed and experienced racial discrimination and injustice, which deeply impacted him and ignited his passion for social change.

Returning to India, Gandhi became a prominent leader in the fight for India's independence from British colonial rule. He championed the philosophy of nonviolence, known as Satyagraha, and led various peaceful protests, such as the Salt March and the Quit India Movement. His principles of civil disobedience and nonviolent resistance inspired millions of Indians to join the struggle for independence.

Gandhi's life was not without challenges and sacrifices. He faced numerous imprisonments and underwent hunger strikes to protest against violence and injustice. Throughout his life, he advocated for communal harmony, religious tolerance, and the upliftment of marginalized sections of society, including untouchables and women.

Gandhi's influence extended far beyond India. He became a symbol of peace and a source of inspiration for civil rights leaders and activists around the world, including Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, and Aung San Suu Kyi.

Sadly, Gandhi was assassinated on January 30, 1948, but his legacy lives on. His teachings on nonviolence, truth, and equality continue to resonate with people seeking social justice and positive change.

The life of Mahatma Gandhi serves as a powerful example of how one individual can make a profound impact on the world through their actions and beliefs. His unwavering commitment to nonviolence and his vision of a just society continue to inspire generations to strive for peace, equality, and social harmony.

In 'If,' Rudyard Kipling provides inspirational insights into life. In the first stanza, the poet suggests us to keep calm, have self-trust, and bear failure. According to the poet, it is important to be thoughtful about an action before undertaking it. Similarly, balancing between success and failure is another important quality of a successful person. In the third stanza, the poet suggests us to value our winnings. We must devote our intellect, heart, and muscle in the work we do, and we should always have a strong will to achieve success. In the final stanza, the poet suggests us to maintain our virtue no matter who we are with. Most importantly, we must realize the importance of time.

c. Why should we not aim only to dream in life?
The poet suggests that we should not only dream but also take action. Merely dreaming without taking steps towards achieving those dreams will not lead to success. We should not make dreams our sole focus, but rather combine dreaming with practical thinking and actions.

If we lose in the 'pitch-and-toss,' which refers to taking risks or gambling, we should not be disheartened. Instead, we should start again from the beginning without dwelling on the loss.

Writing II

Many people opine that we should not be discouraged by our failures in life. We should rather take our failures as an opportunity to correct our mistakes and achieve success next time. Draft a speech on ‘Failure as Pillar of Success’. Include relevant examples from renowned and successful personalities in the world.
Answer 👉 

Ladies and gentlemen, honored guests, and fellow students,

Today, I stand before you to shed light on a topic that is often overlooked but holds immense significance in our lives: the role of failure as a pillar of success. It is a commonly held belief that failure is something to be feared and avoided at all costs. However, I am here to challenge that notion and present to you the transformative power of failure in shaping our journey towards success.

Failure is not the end, but rather a stepping stone towards greatness. Throughout history, we have witnessed countless examples of individuals who faced failure head-on and emerged stronger, wiser, and more determined than ever before. Take, for instance, the renowned inventor Thomas Edison. He once said, "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." Despite encountering numerous setbacks while inventing the electric light bulb, Edison never gave up. His perseverance and resilience eventually led to one of the greatest inventions of our time.

Another inspiring example is that of the legendary basketball player Michael Jordan. Widely regarded as one of the greatest athletes in history, Jordan faced numerous failures and rejections early in his career. He was even cut from his high school basketball team. However, he used those setbacks as motivation to work harder, practice longer, and develop his skills. Jordan went on to win six NBA championships and became an icon of determination and success.

Failure provides us with valuable lessons and insights that success alone cannot offer. It teaches us humility, resilience, and the importance of continuous improvement. When we fail, we are forced to reevaluate our strategies, identify our weaknesses, and develop new approaches. This process of self-reflection and growth is instrumental in our personal and professional development.

Moreover, failure often opens doors to new opportunities that we may have otherwise overlooked. J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series, faced rejection from numerous publishers before finding success. It was through these rejections that she discovered her true potential and eventually found a publisher who recognized the brilliance of her work. Today, Rowling's books have sold millions of copies worldwide and have inspired a generation of readers.
