The front desk of any institution or organization is a place that helps to create a positive or the best impression of the institution. When you greet a parent with a smile or a sincere ‘Hello’ there is a sense of happiness. Imagine if I greet parents with a stern or passive face , what impact will it have on our school and management. So I just don’t allow the job pressure to reflect on my face. I focus and continue my work with a smile. I would like to mention a quote here which I read somewhere, “A Smile is the best make up.” 6. Would you like to share with us any challenging situation? → I consider everyday is a new challenge. It's never the same. Each day I have different experiences, different situations, sometimes good and sometime not so good. Admission times are always challenging. I can remember one challenging situation .It was a Saturday. We had started with new admissions. Generally during admissions Saturdays are always busy days for us. The reception area was overcrowded and the admission counsellor was overloaded. Seeing the reception area overcrowded, I was asked by the Principal to attend to few parents .This was a challenge for me, since it was the first time I was attending to around 10 to 15 parents at time. I was glad that I managed to handle the parents . I could gain some confidence and valuable experience from this. 7. How do you handle if a caller talks rudely? → With utmost patience and try to put myself in that person's shoes and try to understand and analyse the gravity of the issue. This helps me to respond in a very polite calm manner. I try providing simple solutions or refer it to the concerned authority. I believe a master of patience is a master of everything else. 8. How do you feel when sometimes you have to answer same questions repeatedly? → That’s again part of my job. If the need arises I have to repeat certain information. But I don’t get irritated or loose my temper as I consider that information is repetitive for me but not for the other person. So every individual person has to be attended like it is the first time.

There are NO Antibodies in our Human Body!!!!! Virus ! Virus ! Virus ! Today the whole world is terrified and under the grip of word \"Virus\".Have you ever wonder What this Virus is ? And why people get ill and infected ? There are foreign particles (Antigens) known as 'Virus' which attacks living organisms and create damages in the form of infections. These foreign substances easily attack such living organisms due to deficiency of Antibodies. Antibody (Ab) is also known as an immunoglobulin(Ig). These are large, Y-shaped blood proteins produced as part of the body’s immune system response to infection. They help remove disease-causing microbes from the body, either by directly destroying them or by blocking them from infecting cells. Each type of Antibody is unique and protect the body against one specific type of antigen. After recovering from an infection or receiving a vaccine, a small number of these antibody-producing immune cells usually remain in the body as memory cell, providing immunity to future infections with the same microbe. High Antibody levels are a sign of a healthy, normal-functioning of immune system. Since Antibodies are essential in fighting infectious diseases, people with immunoglobulin deficiency disorders become sick or infected more often. That’s why, today, most of the population of the world is suffering from Virus and dying. So, we have to build our immune system Strong by eating healthy and balanced diet so that our Antibodies will fight against the new Viruses in future.
