” The bigger and better you grow, better not to forget the past and to express your gratitude to the people who made you stand today”
The following was the so called status on my Facebook page, during my day of graduation! It was an arduous task for me to recollect all the people. All my friends were astonished, while many of my teachers were proud of me, for my gratitude! Here it goes..
Disclaimer: It’s a pretty long status!
It was a dream for my Mother to get graduated from PSG College of Technology. Every time, we pass this historic institution, my mom says me, Sandheep you must become an Engineer from here!
So I am today!
Two more letters gets added to my name! Sandheep Kumar B.E., 🙂
It’s quite a big journey, and my heartfelt thanks to all the wonderful souls for not just giving me those two letters but who really made me an Engineer!
The adage says, “Matha, Pitha, Guru and Deivam”.
Everyday, when going to school and college, she made sure that I was comfortable enough! One big word of “Thanks” shall not suffice. But Thanks to you, Subasheni Boopal. I must say you must be the best of all mothers <3!
I had finally satisfied your dream!
I had to be extra careful in asking something to you, because you had got me anything and everything that I had asked for and not asked for 😀 I must say there is nothing more a dad can do for his child. Let me say, “I’ll one day make you stand tall and proud than you are today!” Again, thanks a lot daddy, Boopal Lakshminarayanan.
Here comes the main picture 🙂
