Mondays are full of madness! Mondays for most people brings out the colour blue (Monday Blues). But like so many things, is it just a figment of our imagination? So if we change our attitute, is it possible to change Manic Monday into Magic Monday? What if we feed it into our system that Monday will be a grand day? It will be a day when our energy levels will be the higest because we will be refreshed after a break and that we will start a new week with zest and high spirits! What if we tell ourselves at the start of the week that this week we will be unstoppable, be a powerhouse and race ahead, could it change things? I believe it could :)
And believing is the first step towards changing things for good !! :)

Malala is a native of Swat Valley, Pakistan where there is a dominance of the militant Taliban outfit. Malala's family runs a chain of schools in the valley and she is an activist of the cause of girl education. Taliban being a conservative group of hardliners do not suppor equal rights for women and do not encourage education of girls. In early 2009, Malala wrote a blog under a pseudonym for the BBC detailing her life under Taliban occupation, their attempts to take control of the valley, and her views on promoting education for girls in the Swat Valley. The following summer an American journalist made a documentary about her life in the backdrop of Pakistani army fighting against Taliban's attempts to take control of the valley. Malala rose in prominence, giving interviews in print and on television, and she was nominated for the International Children's Peace Prize by South African activist Desmond Tutu.
