No action of ours can express enough gratitude towards our great teachers and mentors. They are the only guiding light that helps us get through the wild realities of life. We can only imagine doing all that we can to put forth how thankful we are, but somehow we hardly execute our thoughts. Indian mythological texts narrate the story of Eklavya chopping his thumb to thank his great-great teacher Dronacharya. Such students are hard to find, however, we have got you a great example of one – Halle Berry.
