A hectic, lovely month came to an end with a heart-warming valedictory function and the last session with each of the nine batches I worked with at Vidya Pratishthan’s English Medium School. As usual, I got too involved with the workshop to take any photographs, but my mind is full of pictures.
Children ran to me to tell me they had read stories on my website. Others asked me when I would come next. Some came and promised to read right through their summer vacation. A few said they would write stories and poems and send them to me.
I’ll answer the question I got asked most frequently, though:
Yes, I’ll be back. I will come to VPEMS and conduct more language and literature workshops. I’ll be back next year, and I’ll meet all the children, and more.
