Her kindness towards me when I was down, is something I will carry with me forever. Some teachers are just pure gold. Thank you for shaping me into who I am Mam by teaching me much more than Geography. Thank you for seeing me when I was invisible. Gone too soon. Sending her family loads of love and light in these tough times.". The fans are sending their love and positive words to Pooja Hegde on social media.
