A strong believer in God, I am god loving person and not God fearing. I say, work hard and success has no other choice but to follow you! I am very cool at heart, easy to tackle, full of gratitude, sometimes crazy, adventurous, and simply SIMPLE!
The only thing which matters the most to me is respect, nobody can dare to take that away from me.
Life works on a basic funda- Give and Take! What you give to others is what you are going to receive in return. So better give good!
I am surrounded by the most amazing people. God has been very kind and a true friend . I am super satisfied in life because I accept Life unconditionally.
