A year older, a year wiser I hope. Happy birthday to me!
I am in an overly senti mood today :p Partly due to overwork and sheer tiredness and mostly due to coming home after a week and realising how much I missed home and my family. So people who dont like senti better close your IE/Firefox and run for your life cos today I wanna acknowledge some people in my life who keep me going. These people are the bulwark of my life.
First and foremost two wonderful people, my amma and achchan who bought me into this world because they 'wanted' me.
Mitu: My best friend, who is always there though she is so far away now.
Sunitha: Just your presence in my life is enough blessings for me.
M: Dumbo, you are the greatest.
S: Younger bro of M, for being the sweet brat you are with the wisdom of a 100 year old.
SP who inspired/goaded/nagged me to blog. I am so thankful you came into my life when you did.
Trish, for being a sis I never thought I would have.
Chanel, for your down to earth attitude. Girl you are my reality check!!!
Jisha, my sis from another mother.
Chithra, for your undying faith in me.
Pavithra: My clone.
JK for being there always. Sometimes I think I dont deserve a friend like you.
Chacko: Dude u rock!!!
Seb: My cousin bro....for driving sense into me when I needed it most last year. For making me realise who I am, where I come from and my legacy.The guy who is responsible for My Think Pad. When I look at you I realise how the "K" family will always be there for each other. I remember the days we the cousin brigade slept in the same room, telling ghost stories late into the night and the fun we had as kids. I owe you a lot of good memories!
My bro M, for always being there. For tolerating my overdependence on him, from a tyre puncture to a drop at the mall to picking me up from work and driving me all over town looking for that 'Nursery' that sells that 'exotic plant' I 'think' I read about somewhere. Somehow, in his scheme of things this brat was always a 'somebody' never a 'nobody'.
My eldest bro G for his unabashed adulation for every crap I write.
My wonderful large family back in Kerala, for their fierce loyalty and undying love. I find my identity in you guys.
My blogpals for your lovely posts and thoughts that are my mainstay during tough days. Keep blogging I rather read your posts than anything else. In fact nowadays I prefer the down to earth writings of bloggers to the "commercial writings" that journalism seem to have become.
JP, a friendship I will always cherish.
And 'Vagamon'. Naah this is not a hot dude, but a place where I find so much peace.
Guess I have a lot to thank for this July 6th.
p.s I am on leave for my budday. Yay!!!!!!
