This post is dedicated to one of the most amazing person I know personally. Yes, she’s famous and popular among youth. She’s an inspiration to too many people. And she’s known as the ‘jagat didi’ among her circles. She happens to have many kids whose lives she has changed. She’s the pillar of strength to everyone in her life. If you’re in India and in Delhi and a literary or poetry enthusiast, you might know whom I am talking about.
The legendary woman happens to be “Saumya Kulshreshtha”, Founder of Poets’ Collective, member of founding team of Kaafiya The Poetry Festival. She happens to run a club called Maha Varta, which is an initiative of Poets’ Collective. She is a lecturer and gives lectures and conducts workshops in various schools and colleges. And for her bread and butter, she styles the content in such a way that her job profile says “Content Stylist” and now I am not going to talk much about her profile, please Google her. I am here to thank her for how she changed my life. I should do it in person but you know when you love someone, it’s hard to put your emotions into words while talking to them. And I have tried so many times but I fail terribly at expressing myself.
To dearest Saumya Di,
You’re one of the best things in life that happened to me and with you I have grown as a person, as a poet, as a reader, as a speaker and what not. You helped me discover myself, my strengths and my weaknesses and how I can achieve heights. That’s on the career path.
For the soul, you have been a pillar of strength and have given me beautiful friends. I don’t know for how long we’ll be the way we are right now because life happens and in a good way. May you reach heights. May all of us be very successful in our lives. Thank you so much for being a beautiful chapter of my life. May this chapter turn into a novel.
