There is no greater joy for a teacher than to see his/her students living their dreams, and touching new heights of success. A teacher meets her success through every achievement and milestone her students touch, and experiences the joys of life through their success stories.
A similar story unravelled some 30,000 feet above air for a play school teacher named Sudha Satyan, who was aboard a plane flying to Chicago in the US. When she was all settled in for the journey, the in-flight announcements from the pilots revealed that Sudha was being flown to the US by a Captain Rohan Bhasin, and she wondered if it was the student from 30 years ago.
Just imagine that moment when she hears “Capt Rohan Bhasin” Your son must have been thrilled. Indeed #WarmsTheCocklesOfMyHeart .— Louvina Andrade (@LouvinaA) March 25, 2019
The 3-year-old zealot had introduced himself as a 'Captain Rohan Bhasin' to Sudha, during their first introduction, and this possible coincidence 30 years down the lane from that incident made Sudha reach out to the cabin crew and inquire how she could get in touch with the captain.
Turns out Captain Rohan Bhasin of Air India was indeed the same boy Sudha Satyan had taught many moons ago at her play school, and he really did fulfill his dream of becoming a 'Captain' after all.
During Playschool admission, the teacher asked my son his name.
Nonchalantly he answered, "Capt Rohan Bhasin".
And he was just 3.
And today, the same teacher was enroute to Chicago.
And he was indeed the Captain. ð¤ð¨âï¸#StudentTeacherReunionâ¤ï¸ pic.twitter.com/nGAqZSKUnF
Captain Rohan's mother, who is also an Air India Pilot, shared a heartwarming post of their reunion with a then and now photograph on Twitter, and wrote:

The reunion was teary and full of happy smiles, but it seems Twitter is all for this reunion, and cannot stop gushing over it.

Thats very lovely, best moment for a teacher to see her student reached his goal...truely amazing— Jitendra Bhavsar (@jitu_bhavsar) March 26, 2019
It's a touching and a heartwarming gesture by Rohan. Greater still is that the teacher remembered his name. That I think was the best Gurudakshina ever in recent years. Guru Brahma!— mathew thomas (@mat3201981) March 26, 2019
Words cannot describe this moment. Never would someone might have seen such a dream becoming reality. Blessed are the people who are a part of this wonderful event.— Vivek (@vsormasd) March 26, 2019
