“Sunshine mixed with little hurricane”, a passionate kannadathi, who loves her roots and culture, a very unique teacher. You may be wondering about whom I am talking or you might have already guessed about whom I am talking 🙂 . Yes I am talking about our Deena aka Deenz, one of our oldest mentors.
People who follow us on different platforms know her very well they might have wondering that why Deena has not appeared in this series? here is the answer “People who are late are latest”.
Deena/Deenz is most popular mentor of our KannadaGottilla team. Her unique way of interactive teaching makes people learn the language fast and she keeps finding new ways to teach says our founder Anup. This is statement is second by our students too. According to one of our oldest student Suparna, her passion towards Kannada and innovative techniques enthusase and motivates the students to learn the language with ease. Deena uses an unique technique to teach pronunciation of Kannada words to Students which I love and now following in my teaching.
She breaks the words so beautifully that we don’t need any other support to get the pronunciation right. If she has to tell “shashwatha” meaning eternal it will be..
sha as in sharukh, shwa as in peshwa, tha as in mamatha.
Our another student Savitha gave her the title “Sunshine mixed with little hurricane” which is self explanatory. She is a go getter for Kannada. The way she joined KannadaGottilla group also supports the statement that she is a go getter for Kannada. She after watching an interview of Anup on one of the news channel searched the whole net to know about the group and messaged Anup to include her in the group. This explains her passion. Since then she has an indispensable bond with KannadaGottila team. She is a strong back ground support for each and every activity of KannadaGottilla team.
A dynamic straight forward lady with no nonsense attached is the opinion of Prashanth our other mentor. According to Arpith and Niveditha she is super friendly and builds up a very good rapport with the people she meets. I too second that. She is never a stingy person to spot a positive thing in you and praising it with a whole heart. She also has an amusing character of giving a nick name to people who are close to her heart.
A vivid dreamer and a romantic person with a beautiful handwriting I should say. Her pictures and posts on Face book is a proof to this fact. Oh yeah I forgot to mention she is a face book savvy!!. Though she uses all the technologies, she loves to write. I mean she still has the habit of writing good things with her hands!!! yes one who has such a beautiful handwriting has all the rights to cherish that.:-) right. She has a very good writing skill as well which reflects in her facebook statuses.
With all these things she has another quality which we rarely get to see in today’s generation. Her favorite stress buster is helping her mom in household chores like washing clothes and vessels and other household stuff during weekends, which exhibits her nature of taking and sharing responsibilities. She also enjoys cooking and loves to cook for her friends.
Deena is synonymous with positiveness and carries nothing in her heart points out Niveditha. Yes her positive approach always inspires and motivates people around her. She spreads only smile and love in her atmosphere. She is a kind of person who can explain a negative situation in a positive way!!
Deena we the team of KannadaGottilla is happy and proud to have a person like you who loves and respects her mother tongue with lots of passion. We all wish you a very successful future ahead. Keep inspiring us and keep motivating our students just like the way you are doing now.
