Dear very dear friends Thank you all for the affection you are showering on team Atharvana. The congratulatory messages are so sweet and they make me infinitely happy. They give me a satisfaction that a job that I have undertaken is properly done. I get this satisfaction when my entire class succeeds wonderfully in a subject I have taught. Let me tell you this experience. In one year ( nearly 15 years ago) I taught Applied Statistics to II B.Pharm students. That year, every one in the class got more than 70% and the first mark was more than 95%, and was obtained by one girl named Sudha ( who later did her M.Pharm in Pharmacology and is now settled in UK). So, a sweet moment for a teacher is, when the students excell in their performance. This is because the success of the student is the only testimony to a teacher's efforts. I say my sincere thanks to my teammates for their very sincere attitude. I thank the organizers, and Khan Sir for their untiring efforts to promote the field of pharmacy. Eswar is a jewel . May GOD bless him with all success and happiness! I started a new practice yesterday in my M.Pharm (Advanced Physical Pharmaceutics) class. Usually I am focusing on the screen, my prepared PPT lectures, and explaining. Yesterday I was teaching "stability", so I directly connected the website of Pharmainfo.net (I attached my reliance modem to my laptop) , and taught stability from my chapter written in this website. What helped me in the success in this competition are the following points: 1. The correct working attitude of my entire team. 2. The group planning. 3. My notes for different subjects, which I prepared, over a long period. We took up only those topics on which we have already some prepared notes and some footing. We took up only those topics on which there are different angles to discuss. 4. We constantly monitored the readership numbers and tried to take up those issues which are getting more readership. We tried to write stories to raise the interest level of the readers. We realized that the title to the blog should be very catchy, it only can attract readers. 5. Our motto was always to keep more blogs than what is required by the rule. 6. On the topics that were allotted to us, we made attempts to refer different books and made an attempt to make every blog rich in content. 7. Our philosophy is- Every reader must get some benefit from reading our blogs. 8. We decided in the beginning itself that we must keep ourselves a deadline much earlier than the deadline given by the organizers. As a result we kept our blogs early and very rarely were we waiting till the last minute. 9. Early in the month of March itself, we decided on our likely topics, and we kept easy topics to the end. This is because we anticipated that we will be very busy after August. In spite of all this, I was very much short of time in September and October and could not do so well in these months. 10. We all of us kept track of every one else's work in the team. 11. We took pleasure in reading other participants' blogs and took joy in interacting with them. 12. We did'nt know about TED issues before this competition. But after we got in, we browsed well, and selected our topics in a purposeful manner. Our team mostly focused on success issues and the requirements for success. I will conclude by saying that it is divine blessing that led us through all these things and gave us success.
