You are special.

Some animals in a forest decided to join a school. The students included a bird, a squirrel, a fish, a dog , a rabbit & a mentally retarded eel. A board was formed and it was decided that flying, tree climbing, swimming, and burrowing would be part of the curriculum in order to give a broad-based education. All animals were required to take all subjects.

The bird was excellent at flying and was getting A's but when it came to burrowing, it kept breaking its beak and wings and started failing. Pretty soon, it started making C's in flying and of course in tree climbing and swimming it was getting F's. The squirrel was great at tree climbing and was getting A's, but was failing in swimming. The fish was the best swimmer but couldn't get out of the water and got F's in everything else. The dog didn't join the school, stopped paying taxes and kept fighting with the administration to include barking as part of the curriculum. The rabbit got A's in burrowing but tree climbing was a real problem. It kept falling and landing on its head, suffered brain damage, and soon couldn't even burrow properly and got C's in that too. The mentally retarded eel, who did everything half as well became the valedictorian of the class.

The board was happy because everybody was getting a broad-based education.  


(Very familliar with we CA Students and  Articleship isn't it !)

What Education really means is that the student is prepared for life, without losing their areas of specialization or competence. (That is what our School Board ICAI, inteding to do)

So, many of us left our interested fields and joined this course, Many of us faced so much of hardships, compromised with our interests, Got fired & humiliated in offices,  Felled ( not failed ) again in exam races and sacrificed  lot many enjoyable   ( Outside of this school)   moments.


But just remember friends,  One day we all going to fetch more..


Many times in our lives we are dropped, crumpled and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way.
We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.
Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased you are still priceless to those who love you.

The worth of our lives comes not in what we do, How much we earn or whom we know, but by How we are.
You are special. Don’t ever forget it.
