From being a paunchy chubby little boy who hid from his mom and ate chocolates and cheese in the stairwell to being a confident , go getter 21 year old young man...Siddhu its been a pleasure knowing you.

I watched you become more aware of your family and as a responsible young man to be relied on in the time of a crisis. I watched your love, your caring and helping nature as a brother, a son, a grandson, a nephew, a friend.

I have seen you come into your own as a person. I have admired your sense of discipline, your self motivation, your intelligence, your sense of hard work, and at the same time your sense of fun and enjoyment.

I am proud of all your achievements at academics, in sports and in relationships. Your every award has been well deserved.

I have seen you figuring out your individual set of morals. As you will experience more of the world and more shades of people, I feel confident that you will grow into your individuality with ease.

As you head out to pursue new horizons, all I will say is:

The convocation that was...

I was reading a post this morning that spoke about convocations and commencements and what you take away from there. In my convocation 3 years ago...
  • I remember the girl who gave the convocation address in my bschool but not much of what she said. I do remember the look in her eyes.
  • I remember the award I received, but more clearly I remember my father standing and applauding madly when I received the award.
  • I remember the boy who I walked with in the convocation march and sat next to during the convocation. My friend. Who was there at my wedding to see that I don't fall off when I was carried in to the wedding and who smiled proudly at me and A after the wedding. Who stood by to see I didn't fall off. During the wedding, or years earlier in school. Thanks N.

I remember the people who were there and still are.

This year so far...

I haven't written about any of the great things that have happened this year. But here are a couple of the major milestones:
  • My short story got published in a compilations of Short Stories - Inner Voices
  • I got married to my best friend, who as I live with him, I grow to respect and love more each day (You mean much more than I could write in one bullet point or one blog post)

Heres to a great year ahead as well!
