We teachers at DHRUVA will mentor you, listen to you, respond to you, tighten a little here, loosen a little there, and make minor corrections/adjustments in your personality. We'll give you little lectures, little stories, little praises, little admonishments, little pats on the back...aka "Burning, Beating, Bending, Breaking" to shape the gold that is you into a jewel.
