I owe you

Posted by

Walking down the aisle at my workplace, head bent, eyes focused on the eerie back lit glow of the iPhone, I smiled to myself. A bright blue encircled one stood next to my inbox. There are very few times I expect something and it falls in place. Scanning the email quickly I realized how much people are willing to help, if I only asked.

Walking back to my desk, I realized how much blogging has affected my life. the lines blur between my online and offline worlds. The word friend no longer refers to someone I know in person. I learn so much of a person by reading their thoughts, by walking in their shoes. For every post that is filled with joy, I smile along knowing I am basking in reflected happiness. When I read something that tugs at my heartstrings, I quickly close my eyes and send a prayer upward. Your lives intertwine with mine. I sometimes feel the need to share things with you first than with people I know in real life. I feel compelled to give back, much more than I have taken.

So, here is my ode to all of you who enrich my life knowing or unknowingly. I’d feel lost without you.


  1. It is me who has to thank you for keeping me together over the last few months especially. You write wonderfully and I have learnt that in some way all women go through the same in life, however so long as we are there for each other then we are good. Thank you 🙂

  2. Thank you Laksh. You write wonderfully and I really admire it. Many a time I have felt that you just read my mind. Infact I am lost without you.

  3. True Laksh. Blogging sure has been life changing. Several unexpected friendships have blossomed, and support systems have been formed, cultivated over a period of time based on intrinsic values. Long live Lakshmusings!

  4. Thank you very much. I really admire the way you post each one with the apt title . Everyday i will eagerly awaiting to see what is new in your blog.Keep up your good work!

  5. Hi Laksh,
    Yours was the first blog I stumbled on to a few years ago thanks to orkut and I’ve been a regular reader ever since. In fact it inspired me to start my own blog so thank you 🙂
