I am delighted to participate in NaBloWriMo this October and this is the prompt for Day 1. “Who Am I?”
What a profound question “Who Am I” And it would depend on who is asking, right? 
At home, I would be Daughter, Wife, Mom, Friend, Cook, Housekeeper, Finance manager…

Today, at work, I’d be Vidya Sury, Freelance Writer and Professional Blogger. Earlier, when I had a corporate job, it was Projects Trainee, Account Executive, Sales Manager, Regional Training Manager, Area Manager in a plethora of industries, progressing at a rapid pace at work.
I asked my friends what they thought of me, urging them to free their minds, tell it like it is and just let their hair down. I asked:
  • What do you love about me?
  • What do you hate about me?
  • What do you tolerate about me?
  • Remarks
and here’s what they said:

a/ I love your whacky, crazy, wicked sense of humour and I love that you don’t lose it even in tough times. I suppose maybe you do, sometimes, but it must be very rare. I remember chatting with you when you were going through really tough times, and you still had it in you to be wicked.  And from that, I love your optimism and your strength. I love your honesty in your chat conversations and your blog to your mom. I love the mix of the conservative, traditional and the surprisingly radical, unconventional.

b/ Love: The energy. The Positive attitude towards life.
Hate: The Non stop talking
Tolerate: The non stop talking
Remarks: What is the secret of your energy?

c/  Love: Your boyishness at the same moment maintaining your beauty.
Hate: Not able to meet as often as possible.

d/ Vidya is someone who believes in perfection. Being a  female has the qualities of multitasking and being patient. and as a working mother i think u have mastered the art of multitasking and juggling; one who wants to try each new thing life has to offer, love to explore new places,people and cultures. i think u like to dress up and look presentable always.

e/ “Vidya -intelligent articulate and she thinks.out of the box. A non conformist with a wacky sense of.humor. A good and trustworthy friend with whom carrying on the friendship is absolutely delightful and without any pressures! And she writes with her heart!”  

f/ “Responsive, cleaning freak, compulsive Coffee disorder, child friendly, thought freak, non-judgemental, experimentative…will that do?” 

g/“She is a wonferful, caring, friendly human being – one can be happy, lucky and proud to know and be known” 

h/ “Vidya according to me is: who believes in perfection. Being a  female has the qualities of multitasking and being patient. And by being a working mother I think u have mastered the art of multitasking and juggling. one who wants to try each new thing life has to offer, love to explore new places, people and cultures. u like to dressup and look presentable always.”

i/ “She is an intelligent & caring person. In all these years of association, I have always found her to be proactive and committed to the tasks assigned. She is pleasant, friendly & easily gets along with people. Her memory is remarkable & she is able to recall numbers, subjects etc.”  
 
Enough, eh? Friends with benefits? Oh yes. 🙂 Thank you, folks!

I am grateful, because more than who I think I am, my heart feels nice and cozy to hear what the people I love think of me.

Love, Vidya
