Life is generally good. It can become better if you can handle these soft skills well. Are they one too many? Are you awed by their multitude? Of course, you must already be using quite a few of these skills with skill. Equally, you must have realised there are some of them you were not sure about, you had little idea about. Knew them or not, use them for you and for others. Use them and see their power. Use them and feel your pulse racing. Use them and experience the transformaiton that comes about around you. May be, just may be some of them are beyond your reach, do your best and worry not. Keep trying. Effort is the best part of life, best part of the bargain, enjoy it while you can! Ah, just an afterthought. Is this 'it' the effort or life or the bargain? This or that or all three? Well, the choice is yours! Au revoir! -Prof. K. R. Lakshminarayanan , Dr. T. Murugavel
