Hey everyone, your friend Sara here! Welcome to my vibrant ‘Art with Sara’ section for kids.

Here I publish the works of young artists who share their beautiful work and their passion for artwork in form of a write-up!

Art by Keya MalhotraPrepare to be stunned by this stippled (art made by small dots) art work that comes with an equally powerful write-up on never giving up by 14 year old Keya Malhotra, a Bookosmian from Delhi. Must-read!

Keya is a student of The Heritage School, Rohini.





Exhausted but not given up

One of the only things we can unambiguously say about life is that it is constantly changing.

Sometimes you’re up, sometimes you’re down.
Sometimes you flourish and sometimes you crumble
Sometimes you’re efficacious and other times you’re debilitated.

But it’s when you’re exhausted… despondent… too enervated to carry on, that you grow and thrive.

Everybody can be fulfilled and happy when life goes their way… the real challenge of growth comes when life knocks you down.

The lessons you take from your mistakes and obstacles are often fundamental to later success.

So when you’re backed against the wall, don’t cripple yourself and hide away… push back harder!

It may seem pointless at first, but you can never connect the dots looking into the future, you can only make sense of life looking back at the past. Later on in life, you will be grateful that you didn’t give up! That you stood back up no matter how many times you fell! True life is hard… but compared to what?

Just because you’re exhausted right now, doesn’t mean this is the end… its life giving you a chance to grow…
