I met Ashutosh sir in 2009-10, when I was in 9th std. and since then maths & his lectures have been life enhancing. I never felt that I was going for a tuition or to a coaching centre , but rather it felt as a self exploration/career counselling session with a life coach/mentor who really cared about you and your goals. The best thing being that it was daily.
Maths is just a subject but what he used to talk about in class was much bigger than any subject, it was life. I reminisce those days & that feeling, I used to wake up everyday looking forward to the time of the day when I had to go to his class. His lectures were not limited to the constraints of a textbook or to the 2x2 room , but they were life size and had the power to transcend you to places where you could only imagine to be at.
Ashutosh sir, for me always has, had and will continue to have a special place in my life and heart. He has always been more than a teacher to me, he is a life coach, a mentor and a GURU in the truest sense of the word.
