Punekar News's photo.Morning is always an ideal time for a newspaper and a cup of coffee but today the calendar appeared like an ideal time to happily think and thank someone from the very core of my heart for everything I am today.

Being a fauji brat, I bloomed bit- bit in five different schools, met a hundred teachers but you are and forever will be my most favourite teacher.

Neha ma’am! You have played the role of a non-biological parent. You have been a teacher, a guide, a mentor, a philosopher and above all my first friend in APS Khadki. You are the reason why that school felt like a less tormented place and why I survived it.

Thank you for being there always, for understanding me and helping me understand things and people better. Thank you for inspiring me, motivating me and constantly telling me ‘I can do it!’ Thank you for believing in me and my dreams more than me and giving me the courage to fulfill them. Thank you for correcting me when I was wrong but not scolding me in front of the class ( because you knew that embarrasses me ) and moulding me into a better person.
You helped me transform from a shy girl to a confident girl, from a kid to a lady.

You’re the reason I found love at the first class, the very first day of my school ‘Psychology’ and the reason for scoring 91% in boards.

I am truly blessed to have a teacher like you and I promise to make you proud. And yes! I am definitely paying her a visit this teacher’s day.
