M Y D r e a m T e a m !!It was a journey I started 4 years ago,Braving the storms, braving the snow.With caution and ecstasy centered in my heart,I entered the path less trodden right from the start.What did I know; I was a babe in the woodHell, what could go wrong, well, everything could!!I read somewhere – in happiness there are few,But if you are one with god – your mission will turn true.This is my story, and I share it with you.Destiny sent me an angel in disguiseNandini – seems childlike, but is surprisingly wise.I held out my hand, said, ‘are you up for the ride’Since that day, I am proud to say, she has never left my side !!Parul – a site for sore eyes,Just when I was floundering, there, in she strides.Strong and efficient, loyal and dearWhen she is around, I have nothing to fear.As the first rain in June, and not a moment too soonA little bundle of talent walks into my room…My dearest Jan – so apt is your nameIn my heart, you will always remain.Nikita entered the team, with her trusting hazel eyesWithout seeming obvious, she made such strong tiesSlowly and surely, she made her markWhether in the class, whether catching bugs in the parkAnd then we had a singer so wrongMukta – bright eyes, warm smile, short hair, not longEvery ready to help, her kids are her concernToday an associate - one day it will be her turnAfter many pleas, after many requests,Hetal entered, as if answering a testLike a blossoming flower who has found the sunHer expression of fear, has been replaced by fun.
All poised and stylish, fashionable and tallWe asked Nirali to join us allArmed with experience, yet eager to learnThis year has been great, more accolades to earn !Quiet as a mouse, yet quick as a foxShe would not even get out of her corner boxSorry that I could not get your name right on the first day,But Monisha my dear, you are definitely here to stay !!What you see is what you getThat is the impression I got, when with Ritu I metBright and bubbly, soft and cuddlySometimes her language can get a bit muddly !!First she was Col Dhawan’s wife,Then Nikita’s mother and finally she got her own lifeNo maxim has held truer, she is a rare breed,Anshu, you have proven – a friend in need, is a friend indeed !Seems very quiet, seems very simple,And then she suddenly sparkles with a smiling dimple.If Sarika would not have come to Riverside for Ansh,Then, I say, who would have given us Lebanese lunch??If the rule really applied, Sangeeta should be off the busWhat the hell, she is thinner and younger than most of us !!But I am so glad that she came that daySpiritual and talented, an extraordinary combination, I must say !Priti – do they really make people like her still??Always with a remedy in case you fall ill.Loving and generous, ready to feedIf I ever want a secretary, she is the one I need!!A bomb, a phataka, a sirenAs a model, she would get ten on tenOne would never have guessed it, but she is a teacher at heartTushnaa – great going babe, off to a good start !So, Kanan, Heetal and Nayjyoti,I promise you a visionTogether we shall embark on the Riverside missionIt may get tough, you may want to flee….But as Gandhiji said - Full effort is Full victory!!
