At thirty-five, she was a good wife and good mother. She had it all - a loving husband and three adorable children. But she wasn’t happy. It took children from an underprivileged background to help her find herself and discover a purpose so deep that it changed not just her life, but that of generations to come. Principally Yours is the story of how one woman fostered hope in young people. A Hindu principal teaching economically challenged Jewish and Muslim students, enveloping them in love and harmony, instilling in them pride and a belief that commitment is all it takes to make life good. Not an easy task, given the odds, but Bubloo Sen had a steely resolve and a charismatic personality. In her dictionary every ‘No’ was met with a resounding ‘Yes’.

I was waiting for this book since last January when I heard it was going to be released. This book is very close to my heart as I saw myself in each and every chapter. The memories of all the wonderful days and hours and events of the school were relived by me again. I am going to read the book again and again.
But having established myself as a counsellor, a psychologist, a content developer, I wish to state that this book must be read like a bible first by every Principal of every institution across the world. Not only it will become a guideline, but will also inspire them to write their stories to add value to the education system and the learning process.
This book also must be read by every parent across the world, who are just not aware of the other side of the chair. They just feel that getting admissions to school is the biggest aspect and the school now must do everything. Tis book will give an insight to everyone as to what minute details have to be looked into and how a principal is always walking a tight rope to ensure that thousands of lives are moulded into amazing human beings.
Lastly I feel this book also must be read by every student as each one will relate to it. There is one place called school and there is another place called learning with joy.
Each one of us need to give and take education with joy. This book will take you on that journey.
Thank you Mrs. Sen and the publishers for bringing out this jewel. Also admire the cover page which speaks so much.
Reading it reminded me of another book I had read long ago, ‘To Sir, With Love.’ It was one of the most remarkable and impacting books I read as a student. I found ‘Principally Yours’ equally motivating especially now that I’m a teacher myself.
The issues covered in this book are real to date and poignantly relevant. Mrs. Sen has written an autobiography so sumptuous with its many life teachings – making the book really one of those that is bound to change your outlook towards life. The book’s life lessons are many; the most profound being – respect begets respect. Against all odds Mrs. Sen taught her charges to expect the very best from life so that even in depravity they could hold their head high and walk down the aisle of life with dignity. This book teaches us that even those who seem most undeserving of anything deserve to be given a chance and be treated with respect.
The incidents narrated in the book took place in the 70s and we readily get a glimpse of that era. Through her writing Mrs. Sen really paints the picture of what the school she was teaching at like and about the students. I was immediately grabbed in and brought along for the ride. The writing style is a no-frill affair and hence easy to read and enjoy. The narrative structure is less academic and more like a story. The cover is a beautifully rendered watercolour composition that has its own charm. What you’re holding in your hands is Mrs. Sen’s thirty five years of faith and hope sandwiched within the pages. Hers is an exemplary life from which each of us can pick a leaf and follow suit.
