Shanti store at Punjagutta was very close to Shahin Niketan, the school I started – the very first play school in Hyderabad.
All Punjagutta, Somajiguda and Banjara Hill kids were in it which was why it had become very famous.
Years later I happened to visit Shanti Store which was pretty crowded. I stood on one side quietly. The owner rushed towards me leaving others waiting.
An elderly gentleman said , “We have been waiting, you ignored us.”
The owner said, “ She was my Nursery teacher.”
“ Oh she was your teacher I am still your father.”
Everyone had a smile.
I said, “ I can wait; please serve him first.”
The gentleman smiled and said, “I was only joking. We just brought them into the world --- You taught them the correct art of living !!
Thank you Moidu Maam!”
