    • Thanks Priya for reaching out to us. If you are participating in drawing competition, you need to take a picture of your drawing and mail it back to us. You can read the guidelines given in our blog post which will clarify most of your queries. Please reach out to us if you have more queries.

  6. Hello to all the readers who’ve taken time off their hectic-paced schedules and paused to read our EMOTIONAL EXPRESSIONS:)!
    The on-coming one -after my brief introduction- is a beautiful letter ‘gifted’ by one of my dear students, by name, Shreshta.
    Shreshta loved me so much, for what reason I still don’t understand; To the extent, that once she had even fought with our Principal.. when I was held responsible for somebody’s error..during my class-teachership!!

    Being a Residential School, we always have an ‘Extra Edge Bonding’ with our Kiddos. Shreshta, for one, was even closer;She would share some of those woes that came as additional baggage with the dawn of adolescence!!
    Then, the struggle her family had faced during financial crunch, that’s what made her be away from her home-town..stay in a hostel..and be firmly grounded on her ambition of making it big in her Life!!!

    Though Shreshta hails from a remote town of Meghalaya, she was a Bengali by birth;-and this could be made out very well.. even without her telling;-Such was her artistic, multi-hued talent:

    *My gal could churn out excellent poetry on any topic under the Sun;

    *She could dance with an amazing vigor and vitality-her precise technicalities, on par any great classical dancer;

    *Her ‘charcoal-sketches’ were yet another black & white dimension of her’s!!

    *Again, her tall and lean structure had made her the captain of the inter-school girls’ basket-ball team;

    *Well! Come, any function I would be asked by our management, to take Shresta for the compeering-her diction was flawless..and her voice exactly, suiting the compeering needs: not too soft..not too vociferous..but a kind of Silky Smooth voice, that could just keep the audience spell-bound!!!!!
    And dears the best part is all this, alongside balancing her academic pursuits so beautifully!!

    Now….here’s the letter, which she gave me on the last day of her School-precisely, on their batches’ Farewell Day:-

    ”’Dear Ma’am,
    You wouldn’t know how much of impact you had created on me.

    Well, when everyone had asked me what I would want to become in the future- I would tell them, my Dreams of Emulating Kalpana Chawla!
    But, today, dear Ma’am, if the same question is asked, I would tell them that I would want to become a caring and loving teacher as Shammu ma’am. {that’s how the kids would call me..}

    Ma’am, do you remember, our first day?

    “Hey! Why do you look upset my gal,what happened?”

    {I gave you only blank stares until you coaxed me to part with the truth-I was home-sick}

    “Hey! Dear let me know your name..and also as to what’s bothering you dear??”

    ‘Shreshta…Shresta Saha..this is the first time I’m ever away from home..{so saying I broke down into sobs.}
    You comforted me and I can still recollect those words you told me, those two years back*….
    [*she joined us in High-School..ie. after her X in Meghalaya]

    “Shreshta, listen my gal- Jus’ imagine.. you are going to lead a classic life that not many would be accessible to;
    Your life amidst friends of your age, your cravings, your desires, your affection, your knowledge-all this amidst a set of zestful kids as you..

    -Dear, YOU are going to be sharing a matured and beautiful a space with them. Not just that, YOU have all the makings in you..of becoming a great friend to all of them..YOU have it in you, Shresta, to offer them a shoulder..to cheer them up when they are near a winning-post….and to console them when they are in a similar distress as you are now in..
    Shreshta dear, Why don’t you consider yourself- as to becoming a great ‘Role-Model Friend’…for all of the generations of the students,to ever come here!!!!”

    That conversation just changed my mentality and also did help me bring out the gregarious soul in me, shining!!
    Ma’am, thereafter there was no looking back!!
    Your counseling when I got myself into deep trouble with one of my class-mates, ————————————, saved me from ‘further disgrace’.

    Dear Ma’am, today, I proudly step out of our School-Campus as the ‘School Pupil Leader’, who has discharged her duties to the best of her efforts!
    -It’s all due to you ma’am. Thank you so much for your love…
    Love you loadzz Ma’am,
    Your kiddo,
    Shreshta, the Smileey as you would love callin me”‘

    Friends-So, that one was from my treasure-trove….the reading of which..keeps me rejuvenated and tells me that every other day I could be meeting so many Shrestas..who might need me!!!!
    {In fact I need to thank you dearest my gal for giving me this rejuvenating tonic that till date serves as a tonic and keeps me going.}
