Thanks would be less!

It’s time for thanking someone 🙂

Each one of us would admire someone just because we weren’t able to be like the way they are. We could like their character, they way they carry themselves, the way the talk, it could be anything…

I am going to talk about one such person in my life!

If I idolize a girl, it would be her…

A girl who broke out of the shell created by our society…
A girl who loves to talk…
A girl who helps anyone in spite of her commitments…
A girl who takes care of everyone around…
A girl who reads a lot…
A girl who travels a lot…
A girl who bold enough to stand for her wishes and decisions…
A girl who is not taken away by other’s opinion…
A girl who is herself always!
A girl who loves herself!

A girl who is the reason behind my blog! I was inspired by her to write my own blog.

Thank you, Arunadevi Raju!!!
