A Girl Called Reshma ~

The price of success is hard work, dedication 
to the job at hand, and the determination that 
whether we win or lose, we have applied the
 best of ourselves to the task at hand...

We just received some very good news from 
Reshma, my niece.  She has applied to 4 colleges
 for an abroad study program and she was just 
accepted in the one that was her first choice.  

Come January Reshma will be studying 
in Australia.  From January to June our 
"little" girl will be living "down under"

The term Down Under is a colloquialism 

which is variously construed to refer to Australia
 and New Zealand. The term comes from the fact 
that these countries are in the Southern Hemisphere, 
"below" many other countries, especially other 
Western countries, on a Eurocentric globe where
 cardinal north faces towards the top.

We are all very excited for her.  This girl is
 hard working and with her determination,
 know nothing will ever stop her from 
achieving everything she sets her mind on. 

 Her parents and all her family could not be
 any prouder.  If there is anyone who deserves
 to be acknowledged for Reshama's determination
 and goals it's her mom.  My sister Mala.

We all have dreams. But in order to make 
dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of
 determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort....
