The Teacher I Never Met is a book which is very close to my heart and memory. Today is a big day for me and my readers because we have achieved yet another milestone in our journey. Yes, we have received the THIRD PLACE internationally in the TCK PUBLISHING READER'S CHOICE AWARD 2018.
It is an emotional moment for me because three people who were a part of this journey are not with us to celebrate. Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam, my dadaji Shri. B.L. Sharma and my teacher Smt. Geeta Asthana maam, all three of them are not with us but their blessings will be there always.
I started my journey as a young class eleventh student of Delhi Public School who came from a government school Kendriya Vidyalaya IIT Kanpur. I authored a book without any knowledge and experience, which created a buzz in the town but I never thought that this book would create a buzz worldwide. Though it was self-published but it has been a long journey and today I thank each and everyone who supported me in this journey.
My mentors, my teachers, my friends, my family, my readers this award is dedicated to you all. I would like to thank my parents, my late dadaji, my teachers Geeta maam, Manorama Murthy, Swatantra Yadav, Late Asha Gujral, Malini Sinha, Ruchira Dutta, Meeta Khare, Jyotsana Awasthi, Simran Bhatty, Marina Khan, R.A. Ram, Sanjeev Mathur and all those who taught me, my friends Kunal Singh, Shanaya Singh, Sudar, Akash, Abhishek Vishwakarma, Parayani Shankar, Mansi Rautela, Malayka Singh, Animesh Pandey, Swapna Peri, Nandesh Yadav, Sheerazul Rehman, the list is never-ending. Thanks to the love I received from the author's fraternity.
This is my second international award and an important milestone in the journey. The second book is on its way to get published possibly in 2019.
