I met with Mansi around 9 months before. We were in the same hostel even in the same floor in IISc, but didn’t know each other (fate of Ph.D students, busy all time in lab only). After that, we connected through TISA and became friends, shared our feelings about stammering, talked a lot with each other. Day by day, we became very good friends. She cooks very well, whenever I am hungry I just go to her room to eat something. We have shared our good times, bad times, ok ok times. We started running in every morning, did some speech practice together, spent time in hostel. I am inspired by her a lot. She used to take me in Bangalore shg.
Today morning when she knocked my door by saying she has some good news, I don’t know how I understood that her paper is accepted before she told me anything (that I think telepathy…). She has done (even doing) very hard work, struggled a lot. Now, I can realize how much tough is to persue Ph.D, doing successful projects and ultimately publish it in a good journal. I came to lab and told everyone that one of my close friend has published her research work in a very good journal. I gave them tea treat also for it. I told it to my parents. Eveyone blessed her and expect more good work from her. We all are really proud to have you in our group and I thank to TISA for giving me such kind of good persons in my life….
