Though ‘invisible’, you walk with me! Left: Me with my writing mentor, J. D Sir. Right: My dad and me.

Another year has faded away leaving behind all kinds of memories. The good memories derived from the year leaves a sweet fragrance in our mind & the not so good memories help us learn how not to repeat the mistakes. Walking down the memory lane of year 2016, here’s sharing with the world my collection of favourite photographs which I clicked in the bygone year. As I was swiping the photographs last week, I realize that besides professional growth I had many upbeat moments in Mumbai as well as during my travels. On the flip side, I miss two important figures from my personal life. One being my dad and other my writing mentor, who left for heavenly abode this year. All in all, the year was good enough to add value to my wisdom on various fronts.  The take away messages which year 2016 gifted me with was. “With hope in heart & with values of sincerity & determination, I believe miracles are possible” & “Irrespective of how fair or not the circumstances be, one should just keep walking positively on our chosen path.”

Wishing everyone Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
