Courage and Patience - Ajay Vijayvargi

These two values are a two-way street. We need the courage to be patient and patience will help you to be courageous. These two values are to be inculcated in students and educators, play a very crucial role in nurturing and developing them.

Students need the courage to overcome the exam fear, speak the truth on committing mistakes, overcome nervousness before a crucial match, keep patience before exam results or in exam hall so as not to leave the questions or make silly mistakes, undertake difficult sports and so on.

We have seen multiple examples in History which demonstrate these two attributes, one of them is about Maharana Pratap, the courageous ruler of Mewar who once lost his kingdom to Akbar but kept patience with his family in jungles, suffered hard times gathered his army and again won his kingdom.

In today's scenario, the Corona Fighters (medical staff, police personnel and even teachers doing a survey) who in spite of knowing the fact that it can be fatal to their lives and their near and dear ones if they catch infection are showing great courage in performing their duties and the citizens also who very patiently are staying at home and following the guidelines of lockdown thereby minimizing the spread of the pandemic.

Thus, whether be it History or the present,  deadly battles can certainly be won by courage and patience and thus, one should always try to be courageous and patient while dealing with any situation at hand and one will succeed.
