Book Launch 2: 15th August 2015
The next day Saurabh Mathur was invited to his old school, St. Peter’s Convent School, where he studied from class one till tenth. It was a great experience for him as he was the Chief Guest of the Independence Day celebration in the school.
The day unfolded with the Flag Hoisting by Principal Sr. Archana. It was carried further by many skits, dance performances and prayer songs by the students of St. Peter’s School. The Author was introduced by the Principal as she taught him English in class 10th. She described the Author as a silent but mischievous person. She said, “He generally sat on the back benches, always remained silent but was very naughty. I knew he would do something good one day.”
The Author got a chance to speak about “The Secretive Six” and the first thing he did was to thank all his teachers, especially English teachers. He said, “I didn’t even know, where to use ‘A’ and where to use ‘The’ even till class 10th. It was only possible because of the teachers of St. Peter’s.” He didn’t say anything about Independence Day or patriotism, instead, the Author talked about the development of India which could be done only by Education. He said and requested everyone, “One day, you will earn and one day you will make good money, just make sure you are funding for at least 1 person so that he can have his education he deserve.” He added, “Education is the only solution to each and every problem which India is facing today.”
