Thank you and gratitude are not terms which would really convey my emotions. So I would choose to express my love instead.
I express my love: to my parents for always bestowing me with things without which life would never have been the same, and to my extended family and cousins for always standing with me. To all my friends in college who encouraged me during the initial days when my fingers typed restlessly. A special mention about my alma mater, where I learned the letter, and my college campus, where I understood the meaning of the letter.
I would love to express my reverence to my teachers at school and college. Particularly to my English teachers for teaching me the power of the letter and to the Faculty at college for encouraging my endeavour.
A warm hug to all my friends at School, College and Apartments, without whom many of my muses and thoughts would never have triggered. Without whom, I would have never dared to write a word.
A hi-five to all my colleagues who have read my writes and have chided me if I wrote something absurd. A firm shake hand to my friends at Toastmasters for commenting on my writes. Much love to my friends at Bhumi for nudging my wishes into reality. Heartfelt appreciation to my friends cum curators at Ignite-Hyderabad who have read and appreciated my attempts at writing.
Among all the things, the most precious purchases, my computer and Internet connection. Without which, I would have never had met my virtual family. A virtual hug to all my friends, mentors at All Poetry for standing together, encouraging, motivating, teaching and most importantly,giving critical feedback.
