Santamma's Inspiring Story

 *Santamma's Inspiring Story*

 I gazed upon her, I couldn't help but wonder where she was headed. Was she on her way to the hospital, perhaps? But no, it seemed our assumptions were entirely wrong. With two walking sticks in her hands, she made her way to the classrooms of Centurian University in Andhra Pradesh each day, travelling a staggering 60 kilometers by bus to teach.

And who was this remarkable woman, you ask? None other than Santamma - a true force of nature at the age of 95. She devotedly taught Medical Physics, Radiology, and Anesthesia to eager students, all the while guiding and inspiring them to reach new heights. Under her tutelage, an impressive 17 students had even completed their Doctorates (PhD).

But that was not all - for Santamma was a true polymath, a Renaissance woman in every sense of the word. She had even translated the Bhagwat Gita into both English and Telugu languages, in addition to her extensive research work. Her goal? To make her mark as the oldest Professor in the Guinness Book of World Records - a testament to her unyielding spirit and indomitable will.

Truly, Santamma was an inspiration to us all. She reminded us that no matter our age, with enough determination and tenacity, we too could achieve greatness. So let us take a page out of her book and strive to do something truly remarkable with our lives. My heartiest tributes to this phenomenal lady - Santamma, a true beacon of hope and inspiration.

River of Time

River of Time Once upon a time, in a quiet town nestled amidst the rolling hills, there lived a man named Takeshi. Takeshi was a philosopher at heart, always pondering the mysteries of life and the universe. He had a keen understanding of the ebb and flow of time, and often found himself lost in thought about the passing of the hours, days, and years. One day, as Takeshi was walking along the banks of the river that flowed through the town, he stopped to watch the water as it rushed past. He noticed how it shimmered and sparkled in the sunlight, its surface constantly changing as it surged forward. "Time is like a river," he thought to himself. "You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again." As Takeshi stood there, lost in contemplation, he realized the profound truth in those words. Time was indeed like a river, and life was like a boat floating on its current. Each moment was fleeting, never to be experi

Royal Road to Success

*Royal Road to Success* In the small, unassuming town of Shimura, there existed a peculiar road that everyone referred to as the "Royal Road." It was said that this path held a secret, an inexplicable truth that only those who embarked on the journey would come to understand. The townspeople whispered about the Royal Road, and it was believed that those who walked its path would find success in whatever they sought. The protagonist, Kaito, a young man with a penchant for collecting vintage records and reading obscure novels, came across an old, tattered book in the dusty corner of a secondhand bookshop. The book's title was "The Second Road: A Journey Beyond Success," and it contained stories of people who had walked the Royal Road, only to find themselves in a peculiar state of existence. Curiosity piqued, Kaito decided to walk the Royal Road himself. One day, as the sun dipped below the horizon, painting the sky in shades of orange and pink, Kaito
