1. Read the passage given below and answer the question that follow :- 

Life is an institution. We have a principal, God, who looks over the entire working of our life. He allots teacher, namely our parents, to guide us through this path. We learn lessons and it is up to us whether we want to pass or fail. Every morning we wake up and give a tick mark to the attendance file of our lives. The only difference in this school of life is you cannot play truant even for a day! Though from time to time one may doze off and not pay heed to the message that is being given to us.

From the start my parents taught me and my sister to be good human beings first. Life has been kind, sometimes harsh but mostly fair. We make many mistakes, some of which we admit and others, we conceal. But now that i'm 22 years old, i can review every step taken by me.

Think positive. Yes, it's that simple. Thoughts are actions. Imagine if there are a billion good thoughts, the universe will throw back a billion good actions. Something within tells me : 'Forget the world and listen to your heart'. If we all just start listening to our inner soul maybe we won't scratching our heads while taking the final exam. I am not at all close to being perfect but i know i want to get near it....... not by matering the business world, not by buying perfect self according to me.... is kind, compassionate, and empathetic one who sees the good in people and shares the good within themselves.

The true test is for us to examine, and to be honest to overselves before we give a tick mark to our answer sheets. I had a lot of questiosns ready, my doubt all written, point by point ......... since i could not get the answer from my teachers i made an appointment with God. Doubts about life love death, fear, sorrow. i was angry. Why cant' He guide us?

God was there by my side, every minute, every step. Even though i haven't gotten all the answers i know i will get there.... He will take me there, in my own time, the same way He has gotten me here, where i am now.

Some say one should never pity nor envy anyone else..... and i am happy to be me. The first important teaching to learn, count your blessings. We all stand to be a little more aware about what life is really trying to teach us... . and for some be aware that life is trying to teach us something. 

Money is like our grades in school... it helps us move to the next steps but after that, who remembers what we scored in maths in the third standard? People forget that when we die........ money does not come along with us. It becomes like our grades, we don't remember how much we earned or how much we lost. Families fight, friendships are ruined; parent child bonds are broken. Isn't that a waste......... why would anyover choose paper over love?

Here's plea for whoever is reading this ........... let us all try and be the best pupils in this school called life. Be true .... love not only others but also yourself Love God wholeheartedly because that's all He wants, and you know what they say. "Be in his good books and you will go to the head of the class."
