Hi there, I’m Lakshmi Geeth.
Thank you for visiting my personal space.
So the story goes like this. At the age of two I wanted to do everything by myself, including the need to feed myself without any help from others. Then there was this weird phase, where I wouldn’t utter a single word to anyone and just scare them away by giving death stares. But what no one knew was that I was actually observing people and their mannerisms. Really. But who would want to believe a fat little child could do that instead of being a kid. Then I grew up a little bit more and realized not many people around me behave the way I do, SO I decided to take my invisibility clock(Harry Potter fans anyone?) and expected to stay invisible my entire life. I would peep out of my invisibility clock once in a while to check if anyone was ready to handle me and would slide right back in. This went on for a long time and then towards high school, BAM!!! Well, it’s not really a bam, it was more of a slow transition to being comfortable in my own skin. All that also changed me from being average in academics to a pretty good one at it. I was also happy with my commerce background and decided to stick with it for life. Then the actual growing up happened and I realized that’s not what I really want to do, but it was already too late since I started my graduation following that. Then after almost 3 years of struggling to finish what I started and never having a clue on what to do next with my life, as a mediocre aimless person, I ended up doing, that’s right..MBA. wow!! I am sure none of you expected that. The best thing that happened following this decision was that I got to move out of my comfortable home and explore a new place so far away. Those were some notable years for sure as it helped me come out of my shell.
During my post graduation I was campus selected to one of the best places to work as well as learn. But unfortunately that did not last longer since I had no particular interest in that field. All those times when people would ask me what is your next plan neither had I anything planned nor I had any interest in telling them what I actually wanted to do. Having the BESTEST parents I can possibly have they never forced me into anything or expected me to run the rat race BUT the one thing they wanted to see from their daughter as any regular middle class parent in India would be…..MARRIAGE!
It freaked me out completely and to be quite honest I was not ready to marry on many aspects. And I for once wanted a love marriage and never wanted to get into the whole arranged marriage situation. But destiny has it and I am married to one of the coolest and nerdiest guy I have met. I just got lucky there. He made me travel all the way to another continent but within two months I was getting irritated with myself and having the comfort to do literally anything got me over-whelmed. So I slowly started sketching and Big Shot(that is his stage name btw) noticed a real change in my mood. So he started diligently observing me and asking me what all I used to do other than sketches that poked my interest. That is when i remembered my good old diary writing days and how I badly wanted to write a book at one point of time.
Big Shot pushed me towards many things I was always unsure about and made it look like it was all my idea in the first place. So as he made sure I was preoccupied with the things I love to do, he also made sure that he had less to deal with my tantrums. So, he started me off with a domain name and after months of tweaking and learning to run a self-hosted WordPress account, here I am.
I know it is not possible to understand someone from a description in an About section on a blog page and let’s face it, I’m pretty darn confusing, but through this personal blog of mine, we might just hit it off. So let me just put it this way. Anybody out there who has ever been lost in their paths and who has many sides to them and have reached a place in their lives when you really dont bother what others think of you and more importantly have a good sense of humor, welcome to my blog 🙂
P.S Anyone who gets offended easily, this place is not for you 🙂
