Even more important - she hopes to never ever stop learning - specially from her students who have, as she says, taught her invaluable lessons in patience, compassion and humility in the face of their obstinacy, difficulties and determination!When she's not teaching, Indira spends her time reading, painting, sewing, practicing the three and half songs she knows to play on the keyboard and trying to get her husband and two sons to eat their vegetables.
