This is for Tejaswi Rao, who inspired me by her blog to start my own. I have only seen your pictures Tejaswi, and read some of your writings. I have met your wonderful mother and very nice brother, who depite their imcomprehensible grief have the courage to laugh and smile and welcome new friends, like me, and tell us all about you. In a few hours spent with them I could feel your spirit, your presence. Your “Letter to the Future” is so full of energy and thought that it shakes us out of our torpor and shows us the value of life itself. You moved me so much, you made me start writing, which in years I couldn’t do. I am indebted to you for that.
My only prayer is that your family, that loves you immensely, will go on to become really happy, and find and nurture Tejaswi in many, many other young people. Because life is eternal. And we must all love and respect life, just the the way you did. For your sake.
