Playschool teachers are blessed with the opportune of witnessing a kid’s dream pan out right before their eyes. It is only is some rare, precious moments that teachers get to see the ‘I want to be a doctor, ‘actor’, ‘pilot’, ‘astronaut’ evolve into a reality. Sudha Satyan is one of those few fortunate who got to see her once student’s dream evolve right before her very eyes.

Satyan, on her Air India’s long-haul flight from Delhi to Chicago on Sunday had a memory-juggle when she heard an announcement of the captain’s name familiar to her some 30 years down memory lane. As a young playschool teacher, she had come across a bright 3-year-old who had introduced himself as “Captain” Rohan Bhasin, and true to his ‘captainhood’ Rohan is now actually a flight captain.

Giving into the benefit of her doubts, she requested the airhostess to meet the pilot and lo-behold stood her former student right before her eyes as a now grown-up “Captain” bring pools of happy tears before his teacher’s eyes.

Rohan’s mother took to Twitter to share this very previous reunion of a teacher and a student. She shared two photos of the pilot and his teacher, one from 1990-91 and another from Sunday. Since her tweet, the reunion of the teacher and her student have brought hap-tears all around the Twittersphere.
