Delhi Public School Surat had the privilege of hosting Mr Anshul Kothari, noted swimmer who has won laurels for our state as well as our country. Students were excited to interact with him and he answered all their questions patiently. He said that there were no short cuts to success; hard work and focus were his mantra for success. According to him, age was just a number and it shouldn’t deter anyone from pursuing their goals. Regarding diet he said that one could eat either for health or for taste. He was not fortunate enough to get all the facilities students today have, yet he achieved his goal through perseverance. Kothari was discouraged by many and told that he would be nobody without educational qualifications. So he obtained a Bachelor of Technology degree in Computer Science from SVNIT, Surat. He is not satisfied with his achievements and feels that he has a long way to go. The young students of DPS Surat were inspired and motivated by his words.
