So in my previous post I had waxed eloquent on the topic of HOW AND WHY GRATITUDE MAKES YOU A HAPPIER and HEALTHIER PERSON. That got me thinking that we should practice what we preach, and so I have come up with own list of people to whom I’ll be forever indebted to. Here’s my list:

My Guru: For introducing me to the wonders of Indian Philosophy. It has enabled me to view life from various perspectives.


Dr. G. Padmaja: Asst. Professor at the University of Hyderabad. My Thesis Guide, On-campus Mom and All-around Rockstar. Thank you for recognizing and encouraging my potential at a time when I was feeling down in the dumps.


Sanket Upasani: Director, Partner Galaxy Advertising and Editor-in-chief ‘Shodh Bodh’. It is truly because of you that I can call myself a writer/columnist today.



Mrs. Lakshmi: It is because of you that my house doesn’t resemble Miss Havisham’s! Huge Thank you.

  1. Ideally you need to put in a standard line that persons not named is only due to space and time constraints… that you intend to cover every person, pet and non living thing that had the slightest association with you. However, you covered your parents, and that’s divine gratitude.
