“Village life as a child from childhood
You went to the top of the intermediate course
You learned to correct both variables in debit mail with physics
In the sixth grade, the battery on top of the battery made you a gold medal at the Technical College
Five and a half hours of dedication to the word “single-minded devotion to your goal” to succeed in your work
Parents are proud to have a child like this
Teachers should be proud to teach a student like this

Veeramanikandan is the son of a hero who is going to set foot in ISRO in the future”

PEP TALK 009 – MOMENT TO SMILE
Why did the MONA LISA become one of the most famous paintings of all the time? That’s a question an incredible amount of people have asked themselves in the past. And one possible answer is this: Because of her unique smile.
Yes!! The topic is MOMENT TO SMILE. The last pep talk was given by Ms.Ajrithaa, 3rd yr civil department. She started with a small exercise and everyone woke up at that moment with a great smile. To all the broken hearts, life isn’t over yet. It still has a lot to teach you. For this moment, enjoy the pretty little things and wear a smile. To those who broke you, realize they were the one who made you smile too. Hear all mouths; still take your own decisions. Learn the lesson from one’s life, but never copy their life. This life is yours and your opponent isn’t the same as theirs.
The smile is “The symbol that was rated with the highest positive emotional content”

PEP TALK 13 – Public speaking
Vishnu Dhyanesh. V from 2nd year B. Com PA KCLAS gave talk on public speaking.
We had a great session on do’s and don’ts about public speaking and stand up comedy. The main part for the public speech to be great is the body language. Then comes the vocal modulations and the content. So whatever the content may be if the body language is not good then the whole presentation would be ruined. Parts of the body to be taken care when speaking. Legs, hands, eyes, lips.
Eyes: Always maintain eye contact with the audience.
Legs: Use a certain pattern of walking don’t show your back which may not look majestic.
Hand: Wave your hands when explaining something this attracts audience attention.
Lips: Always smile smile smile.
A good joke contains 3 things:
The base , the high pitch, the punch line.
Base the audience with a good joke. Give them hype in the high pitch , and at last make them laugh through sudden fall as punch line.
These were the valuable insights shared by the Speaker. We thank him on behalf of Civil Department for his time. The PEP Talk series for this semester turned out to be an excellent end.
