The Real Competition!!


“Never think that you are competing with your friend/classmate who shares bench with you. Do always believe that you are competing with the whole world outside awaits your debut. Be a team, help each other, study and understand together and win the race” – said one of my good friends at IIT Delhi in our farewell function, as an advice to our juniors. I’m still blank what made those words rob my heart. I still can hear those words getting reverberated at my back as I write this.


How true he is!! If a student starts thinking about the one with whom he competes, the first picture that bypasses all others is the one who he everyday faces the most, be it a classmate, be it a neighbor, and be it a friend or a friend’s friend. The very first thought of either of these sweeps his mind from getting realized that ‘N’ number of such fellows is out there, all who are buckled up themselves to compete with him.


However, at the end of the day, every student is a part of the world where everyone competes with each other to fly one’s own flag high with pride. Though it is very difficult to digest the fact that we are just few of those who are just like us, this realization can work wonders, which will be prettier than the world famous Taj Mahal or Aishwarya Rai. As a monument Taj brings people to India. As a hearty tulip Aishwarya makes the world look at her. When this particular realization about the competition beats a student’s heart, he makes the earth run under the sun longer yet stronger.


The best way to make the student’s mind think towards a healthy competition is to make the children understand the concept of team work since their childhood. Schools, colleges and universities of course, shall run with high spirits only to lift their student’s spirits high. A teacher is the huge impact and the big picture which run back of any student for real longer time. This makes the teachers to be of positive attitude towards the team work.


An organization shall be treated as a team; as per the competition, individuals always lose to teams. It is so obvious that one comes first in a class and it is equally obvious that another comes last; that does not mean that it is the end of world for the one who has come last or the guy who has come first can conquer the world. Every soul has got equal importance so as every student. Encouraging each other shall be the motive. But, unfortunately this need to be taught to this generation. It’s ok. It is better to be late than never.


“If I share my knowledge the other guy will take over me”

“If I explain this to the class, what’s the significance of me after that?”

“If I make everyone understands the concepts, how can I come first in the class?”

“If I…” bla..bla..bla…!!!


These are the real superstitions according to me. The very famous sentence says knowledge grows as it is getting shared. Before we think that we compete with our neighbors, we shall believe that fact that when we team up with the same neighbor we can actually compete more with the world, which is the real competition that makes the essence of human civilization fulfilled.
