'Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.' - William Butler Yeats
It takes a special person to light that fire in us, to raise our expectations and never give up on us, no matter how challenging it might be. When one reaches great heights one knows that at some point in time there was a special person.
Partha (or PPD, as he is better known as) is the soul of Backspace. Untiring, unrelenting and unfettered, this man not only explains things so well that students understand but also get the students to explain things well enough so that they can be understood.
Here at Backspace we do not merely listen to things taught but we are a part of an environment that brings out the best in us. I found this place allowing me to pace my preparation accordingly. Individual attention and doubt clearance is redefined here. To top it all the quality of my peers in the batches was amazing. Everybody was learning from every other and that was the best part. The quality of materials and the thought provoking discussions on the same were unmatched. Long sessions never seemed long. I do not know why but maybe one should experience it first hand to realise.
However the thing that amazed me the most was the creativity with which PPD accomplishes even trivial tasks. Right from the nomenclature of the various sessions for PDP and Verbospace to the various real time activities, all seemed so unique and refreshing that I never felt I was preparing. I was merely imbibing unconsciously.
Results of Backspacians speak for themselves and I do not need to endorse them but the environment I received here as a working professional was inspiring. Thank you Backspace.
