What a bitter-sweet moment that must've been. And how hard it must be for you to give up! I will always cherish the freedom you gave us to explore and the encouragement to be as creative as possible with our work. Meghna Gandhi  You were one of the few teachers who made life at EFLU worth the while ma'am. I've immensely enjoyed and looked forward to every single class I've had with you...No teacher in all my years of schooling, college and university, quite handled a class the way you did ma'am and if I ever get the chance to I sincerely hope I'm able to emulate what you did for my students as well...that campus is now lesser a place for your absence. Hope you have a wonderful time ahead ma'am. Wish you the very, very best. Neethi Alexander

Lovely...that must have been an emotional moment for you Ma' leave us all with indelible memories, both academic and personal that we have shared with you during our days inside and outside the classrooms at ciefl/eflu...from standing outside your room with an apologetic face for not having met the ph.d deadlines to meeting a resilient you taking voluntary English lessons for students around your hospital bed...for most of your students who have known you, this only means an official 'retirement' day...I would proudly say that you have no retirement...only more active and fulfilling days ahead...I know you will go back to things you love doing - theatre, writing, getting to spend time with your loved ones and doing all what you always wanted to do...please involve us in interesting projects that you will be taking up...a lot of people outside ciefl/eflu need you,really!

Wish you funfilled and active days

Have a nice time Ma'am! Biswajit Jena

Madam, you were the first teacher at EFLU I was acquainted with when I approached to work with in my M Phil (back in 2008). I still remember your friendly mannerism to tell me that your area of interest did not include my research interest. But your smiles and assurance to extend help unconditionally obliged me for rest of the academic career. Your first impression created an everlasting reverence in me for you. Once again I was your student at PGCTE distance mode last batch (this summer). I thank you sincerely. My words of prayer for your good health and peace of mind. Bhavesh Kumar  I have found great support in you always- as a teacher and as a woman. Thank you for that. Please know, I am there for you too . Radhika Gholkar  


I am so overwhelmed I don't know were to start.....a big big Thank You to all my friends - my children, my sons, Pavan (who introduced me to the concept of FB without which all this would not be possible!) and Varoon, my daughters-in-law who are more like my daughters; to extended family -nieces-in-law who have wished me well; to my colleagues who have given me tremendous support and extended help willingly whenever required; to friends who have been with me for over 40 years; to friends of my children who are now my friends too; to children of friends who are now also my friends; and, of course, to all my students who are now my friends students not only from India, but from all over the world. One of you called to tell me that a whole new world awaits me. I hope so!

 I have enjoyed teaching and being with all of you and I will certainly miss going into class and making new friends. But I do hope that my relationship with all of you will continue. And can someone help show me how to preserve this page? Is it possible to take a print out or something? All of you have said such beautiful things - I wouldn't want it to get lost in outer space! It's something that I would like to read when I feel low. One of you called me the Sachin of EFLU! Pl notice I am not taking any names - don't want to miss out on anyone! Yes, quite a few of you have invited me to stay with you. God and health permitting I do plan to do that - Kolkata being first on the list! Enough for now. Lots of love to you all.   Lakshmi Chandra
