Thanks Kaushik teacher :)

Wouldn't you agree with me when I say one wants to see the most cherished dreams since ones childhood come true?Remember the days when our elders used to ask what you wanted to be and you blurted out instantaneously that you wanted to be a pilot/doctor/astronaut/painter/police officer-and all the people around you would burst into peals of laughter ?Whatever you said,it was because you were fascinated by it and wanted to taste it yourself.Pure and unadulterated.Then why would you laugh away at my dreams?Didn't you have one such.I think I know why you would laugh when some is starry eyed.Because your own cherished dreams do not live anymore.Quite unfortunate.
Flash forward:how many of us have actually carried forward those dreams with childlike enthusiasm?I did.And this time too,when I say I want to reach for the sky and the stars,I mean it.But I do not see people laughing like they did when I was 7.Why wouldn't they laugh now?Because its quite bewildering to confront some one who still has unwavering childlike enthusiasm.Every step that I did take to get closer to my dreams has been like manna.Now that I have tasted manna,I want more!
There is one person in my life who is responsible for what I am now.If not for Kaushik teacher,I doubt if I would have at least tried to live my dream.Kaushik ma'am,thanks for your immense trust in me and the class trip to the airport in 1994 :) I believed in myself because of your belief in me.You are my best teacher ever and I cannot thank you enough.
