  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    When Life throws you a curve ball, you've got to manage it very skillfully. So, focus and swing with full force like you never swung before. Hit those curve balls swiftly far into the stands or outfield right away. And run all the bases for a home run. It's your winning attitude and strong determination that will take you to the first, second, third or even home base, regardless of life pitching you curve balls. The key is to keep batting those curve balls and not to give up by throwing down the bat in defeat. You will come out the big winner, and all you'll hear is the cheers from the crowd. Cheers!
