Former teacher surprised on finding former student is flight’s real ‘captain' (Photo: Twitter)
Playschool teachers are blessed with the opportune of witnessing a kid’s dream pan out right before their eyes. It is only is some rare, precious moments that teachers get to see the ‘I want to be a doctor, ‘actor’, ‘pilot’, ‘astronaut’ evolve into a reality. Sudha Satyan is one of those few fortunate who got to see her once student’s dream evolve right before her very eyes.
Satyan, on her Air India’s long-haul flight from Delhi to Chicago on Sunday had a memory-juggle when she heard an announcement of the captain’s name familiar to her some 30 years down memory lane. As a young playschool teacher, she had come across a bright 3-year-old who had introduced himself as “Captain” Rohan Bhasin, and true to his ‘captainhood’ Rohan is now actually a flight captain.
Giving into the benefit of her doubts, she requested the airhostess to meet the pilot and lo-behold stood her former student right before her eyes as a now grown-up “Captain” bring pools of happy tears before his teacher’s eyes.

During Playschool admission, the teacher asked my son his name.
Nonchalantly he answered, "Capt Rohan Bhasin".
And he was just 3.
And today, the same teacher was enroute to Chicago.
And he was indeed the Captain. 🤗👨✈️#StudentTeacherReunion❤️ pic.twitter.com/nGAqZSKUnF
Rohan’s mother took to Twitter to share this very previous reunion of a teacher and a student. She shared two photos of the pilot and his teacher, one from 1990-91 and another from Sunday. Since her tweet, the reunion of the teacher and her student have brought hap-tears all around the Twittersphere.
