Featured in Todays DtNext – a supplement in English of Daily Thanthi in Chennai edition. dtNEXT Daily Thanthi

Today 29th May 2016 is another great day for me, I got featured in one of the Tamil daily – “Dina Thanthi (Daily Thanthi)”. My featured post is available under the Lifestyle column of the Chennai edition DtNext a supplement in English which comes daily (only in Chennai). From my childhood and from the days I could remember, for me newspaper means Dina Thanthi. At my home, I still remember the days, handing over the newspaper to my grandfather, who needs the paper in front of him before 6:00 AM and we get the newspaper delivered by 5:30 AM. This is a daily routine I remember from the day I started walking and till he passed away, and today I am featured in that. I am so excited to see this. Daily Thanthi is one of the, not to exaggerate, the Tamil Daily which is read by most of the people in the state. There is no words to explain my joy, excitement & happiness, still one thing I miss amidst this joy is my grandfather is not there to witness all these.

Happy Birthday My Love

Happy Birthday My Love
A very special day in my life – it’s my best half Birthday. Everyone say their life partner a better half, but I would say you are best half and also thank god for having you in my life. Love to say only this thing now – With you everything is possible, but without you nothing is possible.
Love you forever and wish you to be support, encourage and be with me forever. It was before 13 years when thought my world was demolished after a great man (my grandpa), it’s you who brought my world back, your every single word when I am totally down and sometimes may be even I decide to quit something – is the reason for what I am now.
There is something SPECIAL this year, got few more opportunities regarding travel and food, I am pretty sure it would be difficult for me to make it and so he is joining me to take it ahead. So friends do support us in our journey.
Wish you a very happy Birthday, I am sure by this year few of our dreams will be done. LOVE YOU Dear
