Aditi Mehta, a name Carmel Convent is always proud of. She had been a source of inspiration for all of us at the school and had left her marks for the Carmelites to follow and soar high. After joining the school in 1994, Aditi more known to me as Aditi Di had been consistent in her performance that reached its crescendo as she topped the charts in Medical stream this year. I had the opportunity to come across her at an effervescent interaction as she gleefully responded to all my queries while giving a few tips which would serve as an harbinger while we tread our way to success.
"Days at Carmel have been the best fourteen years of my life. Carmel has been everything to me; it has been a second home. I was like a form of raw clay, Carmel shaped me into what I am today. My school has been my guiding light. I’m extremely happy to be an ex-Carmelite." Her proud emotions spoke the magnitude of her attachment to the school.
On Carmel Golden Jubilee celebrations, Aditi minced no words and this time it underlined the academic standards at our institution, "It’s been terrific to be a part of such a prestigious institution. Carmel has changed me all for the better. Besides imparting quality education it has also taught me the pro’s and con’s of life. I truly miss my school a lot. I’m very excited about the Golden Jubilee celebrations. I know there’s going to be a blast."
To sum it all up, in just one line what Carmel is to her she says that" Carmel’s been the Golden Era of my life, something that has been etched into my memory, something that I’ll never forget.I shall cherish the flashbulb moments spent in Carmel as long as I live"
