Undercharging and overcharging results in malfunctioning. In the same way we need to charge ourselves with enough food, rest and exercise during this covid pandemic time. Due to the constant advancement in the technology we are upgrading our devices with improved features for effective functioning. Similarly, we need to upgrade ourselves with the technology to be at par with the changing world. We must learn new skills, new techniques and proficiencies which will enhance our performance in our professional endeavours and to have an edge over others. Another feature of mobile phone is being a multi-roll wonder. Today our mobile phones help us to communicate, send messages, emails, socialise, listen to music, watch videos, take images, navigate and gather information simultaneously with just a touch on screen. It is a multi-roll wonder. It is the same scenario in our lives, we play multiple roles in our family, at work place and in social circles. Within the realm of these various roles we have to strike perfect balance and pay justice to all of them. Since all of the students are blessed with enormous potential like smart phones she wished all them to be a multi-roll wonders in their lives. We need to shut down our smart phone now and then and restart it. In the same way when we are tired mentally or physically we need to sit on a seat of silence, leave the wondering minds by minimising the traffic of thoughts and providing it in the right direction. Let the cosmic energy and the divine peace descend on all in silence. Another feature of smart phone is forwarding the messages. Forwarding positive messages energises in and around. Deleting unwanted stuff from our minds and move a head towards the future goal.
