A pleasant walk all the way

Students walk to school crossing lake and sanctuary.

Taking the four-km walk for crossing the Kolleru Lake and the Atapaka Bird Sanctuary, is one of the chores of their life for more than 80 students of Komati Lanka in West Godavari district.

These students, aged between 7 and 16, make a trip between Komati Lanka and Atapaka and Kaikaluru mandal headquarters in Krishna district for schooling everyday.

“Most of the days in a year, the walk, two-km on each side of the border, is spent observing numerous species of birds.

Often, much delightful part of going to school is to catch the birds, which are spotted in an unconscious state or dead on our way,” says M. Dhana Laxmi, a class IV student.

Among the groups of students spotted walking on the road, that splits the lake from the sanctuary, some children, including girls, have not attained the age either to be able to handle or pedal the bicycle.

Thus, all these students enjoy the walk and got habituated to the unique lifestyle of the avian guests. In the morning, the students start their walk while migratory birds are leaving the sanctuary in search of the day’s prey/food.

Place of interest

“Sanctuary staff inquires with us whether we found any hunter or any bird dead along our way. We never allow any of us to take any bird that is dead to home,” a group of friends G. Jessica, P. Mishaik and S. Karthik of Sri Vivekananda Public School, Atapaka, told The Hindu . When asked to share their experiences of observing the birds and laborious task of walking, a majority of students say that Pelicans’ nesting location is their all time resting and hangout place.

In winter and early summer, for those who can manage to stay at the sanctuary in the evening, fascinating scenes could be witnessed while batches of students take their day’s last stretch of walk home. Winged visitors come back to the sanctuary at that time. These students make an attempt every time to hum the sounds of the birds back to them, but never receive any response. They, however, never give up it.


visa issues

My wife and I made online NEFT transfers from Citibank when we applied for B2 visas. How do we check our receipt numbers and how can we generate the receipt numbers?


Please log into your profile for details on fee receipt numbers. For more information, contact support-india@ustraveldocs.com.

I have 20 backlogs in my undergraduate engineering programme. My GRE score is 272 and IELTS is 5.5 bands. Is there a chance for me to obtain a student visa? How can I apply for admission to universities in the U.S.?

Prahasith Reddy

The first step is to choose a school/schools you are interested in attending. To learn more about studying in the U.S., please visit http://www.usief.org.in. Once you select the school(s) you must apply for admission. You will reach the student visa stage only after all of this is completed and you have been admitted into a school of your choice. When you are at that stage, please review the procedures required to apply for a student visa at http://www.ustraveldocs.com/in .

I possess a student visa to study in the U.S., but I had to defer admission for a semester due to an accident. During this time, I applied to other universities and obtained I-20s from them. Now, I wish to go to a different university. Can I go to the second university using the F1 visa I already have or should I pay SEVIS fee again and apply for a new student visa?

Saif Mohammed

Students whose SEVIS number, programme or university has changed must apply for a new visa.

I am planning to apply for an F1 visa. Do I have to bring my official GRE and TOEFL score reports or can I simply bring an online printout of these scores?

Dr. Tejasvi

The GMAT/GRE is normally required by the universities and colleges in order to gain admission. Consular officers look at the totality of a student’s qualifications during their interview, so you should be prepared to talk about your academic and professional past in India and future plans.

You will also need to demonstrate your ability to pay for your education in the U.S.

NOTE:  The best place to find answers to your visa and general consular questions is on our official website at http://hyderabad.usconsulate.gov.  In this column, we answer general questions about visas and items of general interest.

The race to recognition

Unless the two essentials in an interaction — practical and personal needs — are honoured, the outcome of conversations might not be entirely successful.

Flashback to those days in school and then in college where our teachers and professors used to tell us one thing, “Enjoy these days, they will never come. Your life is just starting and you have no idea how hard it is out there in the real world.” Every time they said this we all wondered “What are they talking about? I am going to get rid of these books for life; what could be worse?” And then we entered ‘the race’, an endless race to be recognised as the best in whatever we do.

I still remember our tutor at the accounts coaching classes telling us, “If you don’t know how to solve financial accountancy you are dead. You have no future.” I am sure every faculty member told us similar things. And we ran to become perfect at the skills we were trying to specialise in — be it accountancy and finance, marketing, engineering, literature, statistics or anything else.

What all these good people told us was definitely true; in fact it will help you fetch your first job well! But there is one thing that research tells us will take you a long way for years to come. We call this ‘interaction essentials.’


This is split in two parts — personal needs and practical needs. Remember your favourite faculty in school or college, who was not just good at the subject and excellent at teaching it but did something more. He touched our lives in many different ways. His ability to teach us a complex concept in a simple way was helping us meet our practical needs.

But the ways in which he treated us, made us feel good about ourselves, answered our stupidest question and yet answered it with all sincerity, he made us practise all by ourselves and created a safe environment where it was “OK to fail”; this, my friends, was him meeting our personal needs without us realising it.

Now how does that translate into work-life?

For example, when we step into our roles in a corporate environment as young individuals we have so many things to take care of. Learn about the company, communicate and collaborate with different stakeholders like bosses, peers, external or internal customers. We also have to face a lot of challenges like meeting targets or set objectives, collecting data from other departments to present to senior leaders, achieving deadlines and much more.


While many feel that it’s easy — all we have to do is communicate with others — we forget that how we communicate is as important as what we communicate. It’s so rational and logical to have a talk with others involved to get things done, but then why do conflicts arise? It is because one of the two elements of interaction essentials is not honoured.

Interaction process either as individuals or as leaders is very critical and has to be practised day in and day out. The personal needs that we refer to as Key Principles (KPs) were derived after years of research and when they are applied, people feel valued, respected and understood.

Our research also tells that these KPs have direct impact on levels of engagement, motivation and productivity of individuals.

In the race to achieve tasks and targets we often get so focused on the job at hand that we don’t see anything else. But like your favourite faculty member you will meet your favourite boss and would be surprised or rather amazed to see how similar these two people are!

An unsafe world -(‘Why was I ever born a girl child?’)

In the eyes of all, biased and bigoted,

With no one to support, she suffers this harsh world solitary.

Confined in her walls, her feeling’s distorted,

Will she ever encounter the comforts of security?

Her voice suppressed, her actions restrained,

To protect her from the hands of the beast’s,

Her existence hidden and her ‘futile’ soul chained.

Will the injustices ever cease?

She did question, but the answer was clear,

‘The world is not safe my child’

Unfortunately true and regrettably sever.

Will this problem ever subside?

Each of her days spent in agonizing anguish

And all her wishes subdued.

Can she hold on or will she perish?

Will she still be pursued?

And as she fights and combats these torments,

And hopes she regains her long lost smile,

She asks herself, while she glumly laments,

‘Why was I ever born a girl child?’
