Today, the Land of Dreams reaches 150 posts. And I get the honour of being the first guest blogger here. This is also my first guest post ever.
I am not sure how long it has been since I met the wonderful blogger Yamini Meduri. It was sometime in October 08 i guess. She used to be known as DilMainHainPyar those days and she got to my blog from a friends blogroll. As time passed by, I got to know her real name, and we ended up becoming fast friends.
Yamini, your old pen name suited you. Your heart is indeed full of love. And the poems in your blog prove that. Love for your parents, your friends and just the pure love for poetry. Indeed, any person who has a frown on his face, all he needs to do is look at your smile, and he will forget what was troubling him. You are always willing to share our troubles and make us smile. No wonder I nicknamed you Smiley!
You are always there to help out when needed. If it is in your capacity to do, you are willing to do it. Frankly, I can say that there are very few people out there who would be willing to do this. With a big heart to take shelter, you always make friends so happy and enjoyable to just be with you and talk to you. You always hear us out and then help us solve our problem.
You are very versatile. Not only do you write quite good poetry, you are just brilliant at art. You just take my breath away with those pencil sketchings of yours. Especially the Radha Krishna pictures. If I had a photo of myself that was clear enough, I would give it to you, so you could sketch me. You are that good...! You also are very talented at that craftwork. Super handiwork you have!
You are a terrific social worker. The work you have done with Project Akanksha and for it, is quite commendable. And I have found you to be a honest blogger. You write from the heart always, and sometimes just hitting out on issues that you find dear to you.
Some friendships are long distance. But with you it is not. Seriously, when you are touching hearts with your words, no one will feel any distance at all. Though sometimes I do wish you were closeby, so I could give you a bear hug and lift you into the air! :)
Your friendship has that effect sometimes.
Thank you Yammi, for letting me be the guest blogger for this 150th dream. May you have many many more. And may I be there for all of them.
Yet am I to find
A friend so like you
My heart says I wont
Meet anyone like you
I find that to be true

PS: Can I reserve guest post for 500th Dream too? Pretty Please Yammi! :)
