MAKE A DIFFERENCE Dear Readers, “You have to dream before your dreams can come true.” said former President Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. EDITORIAL The magazine is an endeavour to showcase the creative talent of students across schools in Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu. I must admit that the journey which started in February 2017, is the outcome of shared dreams of many in town. We achieved many creative milestones. It was not easy to accomplish this without the support of well-wishers. With the passage of time, the medium of expression is also changing. In this digital and internet age, students shared their wonderful ideas from writing to documentaries (videos). This wide spectrum of expression of their ideas has the spirt of inquiry, creativity, entrepreneurial and moral leadership. I am privileged to witness the team building skill of the next generation. Across schools to within schools many students showed unparalleled social skills. From interviewing as reporters to being members of the editorial teams, this showed their excellence and future potential. Eleven different schools’ students across the district showed team work, understanding and responsibilities are in their core. These are valuable soft skills which will remain with them. Selecting the magazine title was one of the experiences where we learned a lot as an editorial team. I am also privileged and pleased to meet many inspiring teachers and Educationists. They were excited by the forward looking and innovative idea of this project.Also they were keen to provide all the infrastructural support to enhance their pupil’s creativity. One can see the results in the video and poetry sections of our website. I would really like to take this opportunity to thank them for their efforts in offering opportunities to their students. These entries available on our website serve as an everlasting reminder for our budding innovators and a showcase for their talent. So, here is our annual consolidated version of the most viewed and liked entries for this year. Quoting Late Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam again to share this dream with you: “My message, especially to young people is to have courage to think differently, courage to invent, to travel the unexplored path, courage to discover the impossible and to conquer the problems and success. These are qualities that they must work towards. This is my message to the young people.” I hope you will enjoy this journey with us.
