Being a daughter of senior army officer, I was brought up in a disciplined and structured lifestyle. Since my childhood, I had the opportunity to stay at multiple locations like Punjab, Mizoram, Assam, Nagaland and so on. One of my childhood experiences, I would like to share one. When my dad was posted as a commander in Mizoram, during 1980’s, Mizo separatists had strong hold in the state. Mizos/ Locals used to claim that their state is a separate country! They considered Indians are foreigners. One evening, when I was returning from a place named Lunglei along with my dad, Mizo activist tried to trap our car. Bullets were fired. I was instructed to lie down on the car floor. Driver, Mr. Vijay, drove the car with high speed very efficiently in that hilly area and eventually saved us. We reached the army camp safely. This incidence embedded in my mind, the importance of each person, from lowest to highest position in any organization.
My schooling was also done in reputed institutions like Mary Mount Convent School, Holy cross Convent School and Notre-dame academy. This further gave me exposure to social etiquettes and different cultures prevalent in different states and made me a friendly person. I like mountaineering, playing games like Table Tennis, Kho-Kho, Kabaddi and so on. These games inculcated team coordination in me; and that’s essential in our day to day life as well.
Later in life, with available opportunities, I tried to contribute with best of my abilities. As a result, I got exposure to complex instruments like ‘MST radar’, ‘radio-theodolite’, ‘molecular beam epitaxy machine’ and so on. This also offered me a chance to collaborate with top scientists in India and Japan. They inducted a zeal of scholastic knowledge to the real world. During my stay in Dubai, I was pushed in to organizing scientific events. This exposed me to the professionalism of the developed world.
I am also fortunate to get formal teaching of Hatha Yoga’. There is a saying, one small positive thought in the morning, can change the whole day! So, I start my day with hatha yoga. This keeps me positive for the whole day.
I always believe “teachers are the heart and future of the community”. I was always bestowed with excellent teachers, who first imbibed in me the values, and knowledge. Being in the teaching field and having total experience of 20+years, I also try to follow the same, with my students.
