CMS alumni on ladder of success

Ashutosh Gupta
Software developer for Amazon USA (Seattle),
Alumnus of CMS Gomti Nagar Campus I

Ashutosh studied at CMS Gomti Nagar Campus I right from Montessori Class upto Class XII. He passed out from Class XII in 2010 with flying colours (91% aggregate marks) in the ISC Board Examinations. His parents are both working people, father being a senior manager in a private firm while mother is a businesswoman. He graduated with a B.Tech in information technology from IIIT Allahabad and is currently working as a software developer for Amazon USA (Seattle) for the past three years. A perfect example of how he converted his failings into firm commitment with dedication and loyalty. The influence of his chemistry teacher in CMS has had a profound and fruitful effect on his life. He kept a promise made to his teacher to score the highest marks in chemistry in ISC Boards, and score he did with an enviable 97 marks out of 100, no mean feat! Later, when he went to meet the teacher and share some sweets with him, he says, “That meeting was momentous in which he shared some feelings with me, which were heart touching. Memory stamped for the rest of my lifetime.”

In general, he says, “Discipline and quality of English taught at the school has helped me give a great start. The motivation provided by the teachers helped me to remain focused and their knowledge helped me to learn each day a new thing. In short, i would simply say CMS has played a crucial part in my life in achieving things that I am now capable of doing.”

Asutosh strongly feels for his teachers and the message he gives for the younger crop of sdtudents is,”Respect your teachers, listen to them, work hard, enlighten the world and make your families proud.”

We, at CMS, are all proud of you, Ashutosh and may you always be a winner in your future career.

Gratitude to Teachers

AABHAAR (आभार)

We might be a bunch of misfits, a little lost sometimes,
A little mischievous, a little mature, striving for good times.
A little unsure, a little scared-
Big world in front of us, and we're unprepared.
And you? You are fireflies and candle lights.
Twinkling stars in our darkest nights.

When we're trapped in a maze and for guidance we pray,
You tell us where to go but never lead the way.
When we can't help but cry out of fear,
You silently pass a tissue but never wipe our tears.
When we feel like we have lost our voice,
You never tell us what to say, but do hand us a mike...

May be that is why you aren't a lighthouse, but a firefly,
Why you aren't the sun, but a candle light,
Not a bright beacon, but a 'star of wonder, star of might',
Guiding us till our own polaris we become,
Till we write our own story, our own shortcomings we overcome.

Five, ten, fifteen years down the line,
We will come back, revisit these precious times.
We will remember you, always and forever,
Your love, your care, we'll forget never.
We are, because you are,
And for you, we're eternally grateful-this is our - "Aabhaar"

Naisha Khan, Class-XI, CMS Gomti Nagar Extension
