“Winning is not everything, it is the only thing” – These were the words inscribed on a trophy that I got for once winning a speech contest. I loved this quote and tried giving my best in whatever I did thereafter. Awards and achievements are a by product of the efforts we put in and the dedication we show. I am happy to share my by products with you.
