CMD - V. K. Bansal
I welcome all of you to Bansal Classes and earnestly wish success to each one of you. And though I would sincerely hope that all of you make it to the respective institutes that you’ve set your minds upon, what I mean by ‘success’ is something altogether different.
For me, success simply means being able to perform to your potential. For example, an average student who by dint of his hard work makes it to the waiting list of IIT-JEE, is for me successful than a superlatively brilliant student who because of his complacence and casualness got a rank of 500. Over the years, it has been my experience that the memories which troubles us most are not those of our misfortune, but those that have the words '..if only I had done that..' embedded in them.
So my only advice to all of you is this; be it engineering entrance or any other endeavor in life, make sure that these words never find a port of entry into the picture. Spare no effort, work hard and live up to your potential. Whatever follows will always be for the best. That, according to me, is the simple calculus of Karma.
