Go Blue!!!

Leave you with a very poignant message.

The cube in the video is analogous to multifaceted, multidimensional world me live in.Its signifies the various facets and perspectives of knowledge we learn. As the small child turns the cube so does the wheel of knowledge change, a change which is the ever eternal truth, the truth that only thing constant in this world is change. As we progress to frontiers of science, new facts and findings change the very paradigm of scientific know how. The message is that the scientific inquisition must continue with up most zeal and children symbolize hope and future of the world. It is our duty to pass and imbibe in children the undeniable quest for academia, research and knowledge…the big leap forward…For a better and peaceful future.
