  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Beaucoup d'entre nous sont comme la fleur de lotus qui pousse dans la boue, et pourtant se élève au-dessus des eaux boueuses plus trouble que d'une étonnamment belle fleur, ouvrant ses pétales un par un. La boue des adversités, les défis et les obstacles ne se arrêtent pas sa croissance, mais offrent probablement la nourriture et la force à se élever au-dessus de cette boue. Je pense souvent que ce est le fort désir, la ténacité et la persévérance de fleur de lotus qui doit faire son si unique dans l'accomplissement de bien au-dessus et au-delà des normes; parce que pas tout ce qui pousse dans la boue se transforme en une élégante fleur de lotus. Nous devons nous efforcer de construire le même mentale force, la persévérance et la passion au sein - de manière à croître de plus de la boue des circonstances impérieuses, les difficultés, les rejets sociaux, et les discriminations que nous avons souvent l'expérience dans le monde réel. Alors seulement nous serons en mesure de transformer dans les fleurs de lotus éloquents, ouvrant doucement nos splendides pétales mous un par un pour faire de notre monde plus beau.
