  1. Hej! Dear citizens of Boras…

    Merry wishes on the Day of Hearts…

    There is a lot of celebration is going around the world today… Love is a sacred feeling, it is trust & faith on the other person, a noble quality and intense care that we develop for those we love... just as pure as a mother's love hovering for the baby...

    Poets & writers since the ages have written a lot about love and fantasies… Theatre artists around the world have made best of their contribution to this world and have stolen the hearts of audience with their performance, melodies and lyrics… Yet, there are no suitable words to define the true or ideal meaning of LOVE! Because love is an ideal quality, hence it cannot be expressed, but, it can only be felt to understand its true sense…

    In reality love is neither refers to the limits of attraction nor attributed to a physical form, but in its true sense it is integrated form of care and protection for the other… The ideal form of love is not just limited for one person, but, it is for the mankind and for the humanity…

    In this connection, I have witnessed an event recently in our University Library that has motivated me to realize the importance of strength of minerals in our body…

    Our university has conducted a free health check-up awareness camp through the officially designated Nurse and Social Counselor of our University. I have got an opportunity to undergo free check-up to know the mineral- iron in my body...

    With lot of care and patience they have motivated awareness to develop desired habit of health consciousness among the University students by performing these tests surprisingly and by distributing nutritious fruit of many varieties community.

    I look forward to see such health camps, that include other types of health tests to be performed in the near future, for the benefit of our student’s community, teachers/staff and seniors, at regular intervals.

    If an opportunity is given, I wish to participate by assisting in such health camps and can gain satisfaction by contributing service for the community. The ideology of the University and the efforts of those staff are greatly appreciated.
