Rarely have I come across a mentor like Partha, who in his inimitable style makes you believe in yourself and helps you to turn your dreams into reality. Partha made us do things that none of us ever thought we could. He made us stretch our limits, challenge our notions and taught us to perceive the world differently. Armed with the rare combination of army-like strictness and fatherly warmth, Partha ensured that all his proteges turned their weaknesses into a host of enviable strengths after the end of the 2 most glorious months. Partha made me push myself to Backspace my diffidence and helped me to come out as a new person. I wish I could inspire and encourage the way he does.
