'Don't let the fire in your belly die'
What inspired you take up the profession of teaching? Teaching comes naturally to me as when I was small I would teach imaginary students. My grand mother would always say "Masterani Banegi. I would retort back immediately saying "Mujhe Behanji nahi banana". Probably destiny had it and I became a teacher. But now I feel whatever God plans for you is the best. I have developed my self as a teacher and always aspire to be the best. Till date I get inspired by the new entrants that come every year and join our institutions
What drives you in this career? force is my own aspiration to do the best in whatever I am doing. Perfection is a habit. I am a self-motivated person. Positivity in life is what keeps me going and it is inflicted upon me by people who surround me like my mother in law my husband and my child. I maintain the same aura in my work place too.

What remedy would you suggest? The brain drain
from India needs to be plugged. Opportunities need to be explored, mindset needs to be changed. Awareness regarding scope and prospects after various streams forward. School level education should be made stress free and college level education more competitive. When a candidate with so many degrees, still doem't display confidence, the purpose of education is defeated there. The stress should be on development of self in a particular stream and not addition of degrees. There is a huge gap between the levels of education all over India, I feel that gap needs to be lessened
