You are the aperture through which the entire cosmos looks out. You are the eternal cosmos. The students of Class 12 B, through their assembly, brought out the significance in this vast universe and underscored the greatness of the human race, despite all our limitations and fallibilities.

Assembly VII-A 15-04-2015

Topic: Every Cloud has a silver lining

Every cloud has a silver lining. The assembly illustrated how we are bound to face obstacles and difficulties in life. In any situation, there is always a winner and a loser. But losing does not mean that you are incapable, it shows that you need to work harder to achieve the desired goal. In life it is essential to learn from our mistakes and not make them again. It is necessary to look deeper and find the root cause of our failure and correcting it at the next attempt rather than merely giving up when faced with a problem.
