So how's your new job panding out?

Does this panda cuddler have the best job in the world? – video

A zookeeper in China has to dress up as a panda and interact with panda cubs in order to help them learn to live without relying on humans. The pandas, kept in the Wolong national nature reserve in south-west China’s Sichuan province, are due to be released in protective wildlife and must learn to live on their own - (Video courtesy of iPanda)

When a tiny ant marches on with a grain,

it slips and falls a hundred times

climbing a wall.

Self-belief fills the heart with courage,

and the rise and fall cease to be troublesome.

It is hard work not going to waste, after all...

Those who try - those with courage - never fail!
