Our school will always remain as one of the most special and unforgettable phases in our life. And our school teachers play a major role in that. On Teachers’ Day today, Deepika Padukone‘s teacher, Dr Ashley William Joseph, penned an emotional note for her.
Dr Ashley William Joseph also shared some insights from Deepika’s school days.
Deepika or Deepu, as I call her, was my student for over 7 years in Bangalore. She was not only a good sportsperson but brilliant on stage too, be it dancing, singing or acting. She was also part of the Sophia Brass Ensemble and Choir which was the best in the country. I can still remember her beautiful Soprano Voice singing in the Choir.
He also added saying that he wishes to see her using that ‘singing voice’ again. Mr Joseph also shared the last musical Deepika did which was directed by him. “Fiddler on the Roof- one of the most famous Broadway productions that was a big hit in Bangalore,” he said.
The professor also spoke about Deepika being humble and simple despite being from a famous family. He also recalled, “I am still trying to remember the day when she did not have a smile on her face.”
He also had a very sweet message for the Tamasha actress.
Deepu, you have reached the stars, you have achieved it all, remember you do not need to prove anything to anyone, just live your dream and continue reaching for the stars. You are already that beautiful star in the sky. It is your hard work and dedication that has made you what you are today. As you start this new chapter in your life being married, just remember that the roads are always not smooth, negotiate each curve and the steep climb with love and the utmost care, there is always that happiness in your destination. As your beloved teacher, I will always be there for you, to lend support in whatever way you require.
“For the little child in you, I would say- Happy Children’s day to you Deepu and God bless you for all that you do,” he concluded.
A very Happy Teachers’ Day to all the teachers out there.
