DISCOVERING MYSELF BEHIND THE WINDOW.
“Head, Heart, Hand” is the motto of the school where I had my Junior High School education. Five years later, I deemed it a great honor to have been specially invited to deliver a speech on behalf of my year group. I arrived on the premises of this great school which played a no mean role in shaping my very personality and philosophy of life. As I looked through the Head teacher’s office where I was hosted prior to the commencement of the day’s celebration, I could see hundreds of students throng into the Assembly Hall in readiness for the day’s program. All of a sudden, my gaze caught the largely embossed inscriptions “Head, Heart, Hand” on the main gate of the Assembly Hall. In a moment, I got lost into contemplating how those three words literally changed my philosophy and course of life. The ‘Head’ we were told was the center of reason and the rivet of our career success. The ‘Heart’ was to remind us of the importance of maintaining a strong social culture and very cordial relationships with friends, families, colleagues and society at large. ‘Hand’ points to diligence and the need to be ruggedly committed to a chosen task or a given assignment. During the four years of my Senior High School education, I have had to weave my way through challenges, opportunities and successes. What made me stood tall was this very ideology of ‘Head, Heart, and Hand’. This concept has built in me the mindset and the ability of a total-man, one who has a responsibility towards the development of the whole man; spirit, soul and body and at the same time being conscious of the immediate environment of people and nature.
