Love You God & All

“A little grain of sand has mass. A very small mass but mass nonetheless, and because this grain of sand has mass, it therefore exerts gravity. Again, too small to feel, but there…a thought too is an actual thing, a measurable entity with a measurable mass…If a thought has mass, then it can exert gravity and pull things towards it. If enough people begin thinking the same thing, then the gravitational force of that thought becomes tangible and it exerts actual force. And it can have a measurable effect in our physical world.” -  Dan Brown (The Lost Symbol)

MY BELOVED
Pranams at your lotus feet. Thank you, Swami, for everything.


I seek the blessings of my beloved uncle, Shri Shiva Dathan Menon and my mother’s mother, Meenakshi Amma. I believe they are always watching over me and protecting me from another world.

MY FAMILY
Our happiness is enclosed in a glass case, so fragile that it seems it can shatter at a touch of the fears that surround it. – Shashi Deshpande (Small Remedies)

My dad and mom, my husband & son – for their unconditional love and support, their trust and confidence in me and the gift of togetherness that made me who I am today.  

Achan  –  for his strong support, guidance and love.
Amma –   for being my best friend,  for loving and pampering & for trusting me.
Mridhul & Nandini – for the fun filled, good times we enjoy together as a family.
Neel  – for being Adi’s older brother & great friend.

My sister – Sangeetha & Vihaan, both are dearest to my heart and Rajit, who’s a part of our happiness. My brothers – Manoj Menon & Praveen Menon – you are a blessing for my parents. Rakesh S.Babu – whom I grew up with & considering all the troubles he’s put me through when we were kids!  

Vinitha & Vivek Prasannan – for being my siblings at a time when I had no one, for looking out for me & supporting my family with total trust, love & confidence.

MY FRIENDS
Among friends, there are so many wonderful people I’d like to give credit to because they have inspired me in various phases of my life. Sorry, I can’t mention every one coz that could take pages and pages. I thank all my cousins, school and college friends, and colleagues for their support and love. Everyone at Veda Informatics – a big thank you!

Many thanks to my dearest friends from Twitter, Facebook and Blogger – I value each and every one of them even when we have differences of opinion. These friends console me when I’ve had a bad day, call me up personally if I am feeling upset about something. They are my support system and they expect nothing in return. I couldn’t have imagined any one would care so deeply.

If in my words, blogs, tweets or updates or in anyway, I have hurt your feelings, believe me, it is and has never been intentional. So then, this is my straight-from-the-heart request - please forgive me & let's start again.
And most importantly, thank you, each and every one of you for the overwhelming love you've brought into my life.

Love you God & all.
