The inventor of the light bulb Thomas Edison once said “I failed my way to success.” A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for. We are all on a journey called life and our biggest enemy is not outside us but that little voice within us which says “Beware”. Storms will not sink mighty ships, rust will.
Aravali’s first issue received an overwhelming response thanks to all the members. While the first issue was about warming up the AVM members with the thought of having our own E-Magazine where we can express ourselves, the second issue will now build up where the first issue left which is to:
- Warm up those members who are not very active. Make them take notice, think and start contributing in their own ways.
- Provide a platform & audience to those members who write on whatsapp and other forums so that, their thoughts, ideas and suggestion get crystallized and do not get lost in the clutter of messages.
- Enlighten the group with focused & deeply thought out writing by those who are proficient at it.
- Create a voice for AVM which is unified, progressive and one that is focused on mobilizing its resources for betterment of the community.
