Merry Christmas & Happy New Year….

May you feel such love as lights the morning
Even at this darkest time of year,
Rippling through your heart with little warning,
Returning you to wonder and to fear.
You cannot will yourself to feel such love;
Christmas is a gift of unsought grace.
However much you may your spirit move,
Redemption chooses whom it will embrace.
In you may there be radiance and beauty
Such that you might never hope to see,
Taking as its home some common duty
Made lovely by a will sustained and free.
As you become a vessel for this light,
So may you know its pain and its delight.

I wish all of you a merry Christmas
And a happy and prosperous 2008.

    Alexis ,

    I happend to read about you in Mathrubhumi supplement and “Vanitha” magazine…You are -no doubt –a wonderful personality..Still fighting against fate with a smile..

    Yesterday I went through your weblog also and read about you and some of your blogs..Happy to know that you are blessed with a wonderful brother and a naughty niece and nephew..

    I could feel the pain you have gone through when I went through what you have written about yourself. Yes..It is extremely painful..But you have overcome all those with sheer will power. We do not know why the destiny plays cruel games with some of our lives..but yes..we need to accept the reality and move on..You did it…
    Your story is quiet inspirational..Everything on this earth is relative..whether it is wealth, intelligence , beauty , pain..anything.. Someof the pain which we all undergo is nothing compared to what you have gone through.
    May be the destiny shattered some of the dreams which you had when you were 27..But now the reality is that you have achieved more than what you would have dreamed those days..Your story inspires many others to be optimistic and dream for a better tomorrow..
    Keep writing.. and smile always..

    With best regards,
