My ambition is to become a scientist. I have written many exams testing my I.Q. and knowledge on Science and Maths. In October, I heard of Science Quiz and I participated in it. I was confident that I would clear it and move to next level. Sure enough, when the results were announced, I was selected and the next level was scheduled to be held in Ervadi on November 4. I was looking forward to participating in it and preparing for the same. My friends also motivated me and the conveyance to the examination centre was arranged by my school. Unfortunately, I could not make it because of the communal clashes in Ramanathapuram District. These clashes not only affect normal public life, but also the students’ dreams and opportunities. We are living in a civilised society and the elders should behave in a manner that sets an example for the younger generation. Irrespective of religion and caste, all of us are brothers and sisters.
