I still remember my first day in Akshara clearly, as if it were just yesterday. It was a major switch! I was not only changing school but also shifting to a new board CBSE after having been in an ICSE school for 13 years. I was not scared but was very nervous and excited at the same time. As I entered my new school and proceeded towards my class, I saw many students and teachers, many faces all of which seemed quite friendly, yet unfamiliar at the same time.
