Life is indeed a drudgery of routine. Normally it is difficult to distinguish one day from the other. However, there are some days which have a special significance in our life like a birthday or an anniversary. We not only remember but also eagerly look forward to them. Besides this there is a day, which is the happiest day of our life, which we can never forget.

I had appeared for the ICSE examination last year. After a brief vacation my father insisted that I take the National Level Science Talent Search Examination, which gives scholarship to successful students for higher studies.. I had not done well in the Science paper of ICSE, which was very tough, as compared to previous years and hence was a bit dejected. As the day for the announcement of result drew near, my nervousness increased, giving me restless nights. Often I had terrible nightmares, at night. I knew my parents had great expectations from me and was paranoid at the thought of letting them down.

The day before the result was to be announced, I spent a sleepless night tossing and turning on my bed. Getting up early in the morning, I logged on to the Internet but was disappointed to find that the result was not uploaded on the website. My anxiety increased as the hours passed by. Finally losing patience, I switched off the computer and joined the family for breakfast. While having breakfast, I received a call from my friend Mohan.

He congratulated me for coming first in the state. I was speechless and numb for a moment, his words did not seem to register immediately. Barely able to say ‘Thank you’, I gently put the phone down. Seeing me so perplexed my parents and sister came crowding round me to know what had happened. I jubilantly told them about the result. They kissed and hugged me and soon some of my friends came around to congratulate me.

I was the cynosure of all eyes. I pinched myself to see that ensure I was not hallucinating. Just then my eyes fell on the daily newspaper, which had been lying on the table, completely ignored in the commotion. As I turned the cover page my heart skipped a beat, staring me straight in the face was the result of the National Science Talent Search Test. With shaking fingers, I scanned the roll numbers and to my surprise I found my number. I called out to my mother and within no time the news spread like wild fire in the neighbourhood. I had indeed become a star overnight.

This was something I had just not anticipated, but it meant more than anything else. It was the first milestone towards my ambition of becoming a scientist. Indeed it was not only the happiest day but also marked a turning point in my life which I shall always cherish.


  • Saddest day of my life.
  • The most embarrassing moment of my life.
