I think this has been said so many times but I must say it too. The first few minutes of interacting with Punya ma’am felt like being hit with a tsunami of enthusiasm. The energy is infectious and inspiring. Beyond that I think right from the get go we all felt like she was one of us and that’s not just because she’s an alumnus. I think that feeling made it very easy for all of us to speak up in class and approach her outside of class too. Regarding the classes itself, ma’am has this very direct approach that I personally liked. She made everything very clear right at the start. Pay attention, don’t doze off and don’t interrupt. I usually think twice before asking questions in class, but I think right from the first day I felt extremely comfortable conversing in class whenever I needed to.
