Why "Luminesce"?

Words are such magical things! 

I have chosen the word Luminesce as the name for a blog for the student community because it aptly captures what today’s students need. If you check the online dictionary it means: 

Main Entry:
luminesce /ˌluhttp://sp.dictionary.com/dictstatic/dictionary/graphics/luna/thinsp.pngməˈnɛs/ http://sp.dictionary.com/dictstatic/g/d/dictionary_questionbutton_default.gif Show Spelled
Part of Speech:
verb
Definition:

Synonyms:

light, mantle, pink*, pinken, redden, rose, rouge, shine*,smolder, thrill
tingle, twinkle
Look up Luminesce in the link below (a screen shot of which is given). 


The two key words are “shine” and “reflect”. If you shine and reflect, you will luminesce.
These two words are very important for you are tomorrow’s leaders. The 21st century world beckons you and has pinned its hopes on you…

That you will be trail blazers, flame kindlers, torch bearers…

That you will flare hopes, gleam, glimmer, glisten and ignite genuine passion

That you will don mantles with mettle, rise and then shine

That you will smoulder at inequalities and injustice

That you will be your own twinkling little star!

To “Shine” in your chosen field you need to have the required knowledge. True Google is God with you; yet you need to know what is true knowledge – I mean sift chaff from grain.

To “Shine” in your work place, you need to be more than anything else a fine human being.

You need terrific inter personal skills.

You must be a lifelong learner & keep updating your skills.

You must be a fine team player.

You must be sustainable in your thoughts, words and deeds.

To “Reflect” all these, you must eloquently model them.

You must have in you the spirit of sharing.

You must be a happy person with a positive outlook.

You must persist and persevere.

You must remove the scars of yesterday and the fears of tomorrow – live for today!

Hopefully I will endeavour to provide insights into all these for you.

Cheers & wishes for a happy journey of life ahead!!
