Yess!! I am happy to be writing this ...
This blog post is a tribute to one of my special friend Anirudh Shetty he is a poet, philosopher, blogger, traveller, engineer, many more, finally, he is always a special brother out there http://shettyanirudh.blogspot.in/ .
To start with history I met him at an campus interview, luckily destiny had us both placed in same company at same location ,spoke to him on the first day of office knowing he was a Mangalorean I was happy as if I found an Island in a big ocean. In a very small time we became good friends. As he could see the fact that I was all new for that place and people, and how skeptical I was at things being different out there he saw the urge in me to express things .After hearing that one of my hobbies was writing he lit this magical spark in my life and pushed me to start this blog which is an year old infant today.
Back then if that #sachchiAdvice was not received or brought into action today I wouldn’t have been here. As he himself was a self motivated blogger he made me experience and observe the minute things of joy going around in every individuals lives , not just merely see it, at times he made me part of it too.
As a small instance to explain how some moments in my life will be nostalgic always are my first flight was a free flight from Mumbai to Mangalore which I travelled with him as he won it in a blogging contest. Yeah, flying is no big deal nowadays if you have little more money but for a mediocre like me it was a moment
of joy forever the first ever take off. Air hostess had an eye on me or else I would have been shouting like hoooooooooooooooo-Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee I am flying freeeeeeeeee in both ways as if I was on a giant wheel or something.
All those memorable moments have actually indirectly influenced me to take my blog much farther. I would often get an opportunity (free pass entry) just with the tag of blogger and friend of a blogger to attend various events with him. I attended Univercell exhibition Colaba, Tata Literature Fest at NCPA , Bolt arena at Vashi which had also helped us earn so many goodies too.
Only after I came down to Bangalore I have taken the courage to attend the blogger’s meets independently , make new blogger friends , write about new incidents and accidents and be in track. Somewhere, someday, somebody might be our family members, friends, teacher or even a passer-by may be the reason behind our right decisions which later followed by fruits of success for which we owe them at least a soul felt thank you.
So here I am conveying my gratitude to Anirudh Shetty, It really meant a lot to me that one true #sachchiAdvice of yours.
