Dear friends! Be punctual in your life. Punctuality is the road to success. A person who is not punctual cannot succeed in his life.
Let us read about a boy who did not care about the value of punctuality.
One day Sunil was late for school.
His teacher Miss Mary asked, ``Why are you late, Sunil?’’
Sunil said, Madam, I could not find my pen box this morning. I searched for it for a long time in my house. After two hours at last I found it on my brother’s bed. My brother played with it last night. He hen left it on her bed’’. That is his answer.
Madam expected his request.
A few days later, Sunil was came again late for school. This time he told a funny story.
He said `` Madam. I could not find my shoes this morning. I searched from them at every corner f the whole house.’’
``Where did you your shoes then?’’ asked Miss Mary.
``Madam, I found one she under the bed and the other on be top of the cupboard.’’
Miss Mary asked, `` How did the shoes come to be in the wrong places?’’
``Last night, went out for supper in a hotel with my parents. We came back home late. I kicked my shoes off too hard. One of them dropped under the bed and the other one fell on the top of the cupboard,’’ Sunil Explained to her madam.
The whole class roared with laughter. Sunil was ashamed of his explanation. Miss Mary was happy with Sunil’s excuses. She warned, ``Sunil, this is not a good habit. You must keep your things at proper places before you go to bed. Your bag, books, shoes and pen box must all be ready before you sleep. In this way you do not have to waste your time for searching them in the morning’’.
Sunil decided to follow his teacher’s advice. Now he keeps all his things at proper places. He is very punctual. He does all this work on time. His teacher is very happy to see him.
So, friends you should also follow the advice of miss Mary. Punctuality will make your life happy.
