I’ve learnt that two people can look at the exact same thing but absorb it differently. Same brief but different individual will approach it their own way.

Deep in my heart I hope they all will do well, pass with flying color. The progress the made was so different from one to another. The most important thing is they had tried their very best, to push the ability beyond boundary.

I definitely will miss them deeply once the semester over:( ///syam
