The motivation reads:

Always helpful, always pleasant, and always sympathetic. Nandita has the ability to make every lesson interesting and involves every student, which together are important qualities that make her a fantastic educator. 

Here's what Nandita says about the award:

“It was a pleasant surprise for me, and I am so delighted to receive this award. This means a lot to me especially because I am fairly new to the university and to this beautiful country. This award not only gives me an assurance of being accepted but also motivates me to work harder. I am happy to know that students find my lectures interesting, and they feel I include everyone during my lectures because for me a teacher is successful only if he/she can reach out to each student in the class and can encourage them to think critically. The award has motivated me to continue striving for excellence in all my academic endeavours.”
