Their achievements become my gratification. I have devoted my entire life nurturing these nestlings till they take flight into the big world! I started with no curriculum, no guide, no material and no books. It was a daunting task but at the same time, a gift in disguise ! I learned, designed and innovated. I developed different strategies and formulated an extensive all encompassing syllabus to reach new levels of growth. Happily, the evolution continues each day.”
