Amit Gupta: my classmate at Ramjas School. Actually, one of the best classmates ever.
For the love of Mechanics: Among precious few, he was one highly contributing Impulse (I) which increased my lowly Initial Momentum (Pi), by a substantial amount (Δp), adding to the Final Value (Pf). While Pi was just sufficient to join the set of friends of Amit, Pushpendra, Anshul, Nikhil, and others; Pf eventually changed the course of next two yrs of my life at Ramjas/ VMC, and further in essence. The importance of Δp is quite difficult to pen down.
I would share one memorable instance
I used to truly suck at Mechanics, the very first subject @VMC; in general all subjects (36/150- first test series at VMC). Just watching Amit solve a QUITE difficult one (from HC Verma if I remember correctly) so beautifully, I came across what I had been missing all this time. It was not so easy, but Mechanics was the new Love ever since!
