When we interact with friends through messages or chats we actually don't think. But when we write essay, we put our deep thoughts. While writing we need to put our views in somebodies else's shoes. We need to be precise and logical in our thoughts.

Kim Kum-pyoung, Director, Korean Cultural Centre India congratulated all the winners are participants.

You start preparing yourself for better future.
