This is my first post in the series that I am introducing on this blog and this series is titled 'Friends and Footprints.' At every phase in my life, I believe that my friends have helped me to evolve into a better human being. The lessons I have learned from them cannot be fully captured by writing blog posts but I want to at least try and express my gratitude to friends who have inspired and helped me. I will not bring in any family members into this series because that's a completely different space, that I am not ready to do as of now.
After a series of interactive discussions I had with Sanand and Juhi Mohan who is a very close and dear friend to us, I decided to pay tribute to all the friends who have been 'special' in my life. When I discussed this with Juhi, she suggested the title for this series and I am grateful to her for this because it sounds perfect and matches the purpose and context of this series perfectly. Sanand loved the sound of this title series and said, "go for it!"
Soon, you will read my posts in this series about some wonderful friends. I will not ask their permission to write simply because I want to surprise them. But I'd love to have your feedback and encouragement for this series.
Like Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart."
This is my humble tribute to those who left footprints in my life.
