Catholic Sabha Felicitates Ekalvaya Awardee Anup D’Costa
Kundapur: An effective approach and a perfect vision are required to steer anything towards success. A perfect vision of what one aspires to be in life will help in achieving the dream said Dr Gerald Isaac Lobo Bishop of Udupi Diocese.
He was speaking after felicitating Anup D’Costa Kundapur who was honoured with the “Ekalvaya Award 2015” recently by the ministry of sport and youth affairs Karnataka government.
The felicitation programme was organised by Catholic Sabha Kundapur Denary at the St Mary’s College auditorium Kundapur on Thursday, October 13.
The 2015 Ekalavya Awards were presented by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah at a function held at the Amrutotsava Bhavan at Mysuru on October 7.
Unless one has a burning desire, the set goals cannot be achieved. This is where the achiever should put his best efforts. Once he/she realizes this, nothing can stop them from moving towards their goal. Anup D’Costa who came from a small town of Kundapur today is recognised at the national and international level which brings us pride, bishop added.
Accepting the felicitation Anup D’Costa said that behind my success are my parents and teachers who have supported me. A meticulous planning and dynamism are necessary to achieve success. There is no doubt that hard work gives the best results. Those who believe in luck do not go far in life and career. Believers in luck wait for something to happen to bring them success. Without efforts, nobody can reach the set goals. A continuous effort should be made till the goal is achieved, he added.
