For me, teaching Hindi is rooted in family tradition. I sat with my father in my childhood as he taught Hindi to students from around the world. He was beloved by his students who became my friends and part of our family. Teaching and learning Hindi were subjects that brought us joy, purpose, and provided a bond. In 1999, I began teaching under my father's guidance. Since then, I have taught individuals and groups in India and abroad, from single lessons to yearlong courses. I have taught post-high school exchange programs, classes at the University of Leipzig, Germany, and intensive courses for diplomats in the American Embassy and British High Commission in New Delhi. Teaching Hindi still brings me joy, and now it is an honor for me to continue my family tradition here at Cornell.
