My favorite teachers have changed over a period of time. However, I remember Swatantra Sir because of his deep faith in me.

I have completed my education from different places, because of my father’s shifting jobs. My play school study is from Haldwani after which we shifted our base to Almora. I have studied for an year in Maharshi Vidya Mandir school in Almora after which we moved to Lucknow. It is Lucknow that we stayed for six years and I did my primary education. On completing class 6, my father got transferred to Obra, wherein I studied till class tenth. After tenth, I came to Dehradun to finish off my Intermediate and graduation. I have always went to CBSE schools and I think moving to several places has helped me in more flexible while going new places.
I loved English as young and I still love it. Those English literature stories have always aroused interest in me and made me read them more. I started writing when I was in class IX and too an extent I think it was my love towards English that has helped me shape my career.
