BESTTT compliment, EVER…

Yesterday I had gone to attend my Ex-Principal, Mr. B.B.S. Pathania’s daughter, Garima’s wedding.

He was talking to someone and said,

“I have seen thousands of kids pass through My School and I personally know a few hundred of them.

I have seen them grow up from nursery-class kids to proud parents and big shot professionals.

But only one has grown up all by himself; only one, and I think he has done a good job!”

As he finished, he had tears in His eyes, and so did I!

It just made everything that I learnt from him and that I stand for seem Oh-So-Worthwhile…

I have not stopped smiling since!

Thank You, Sir; I Thank YOU!!!


P.S. I was there from 1986-1999, VI-IX. Was trying to post a link from but it requires a Login.

Update: I smiled for 4 days, continuous. I swear, I did!

    It’s a great pleasure for any person to have such words from his teacher and that too after so many years. It means that you have made so big impact and made your presence felt that it will still remain for a long long time.
