Xi Wang and Xeela




images (2)

Xi Wang (meaning ‘hope’) my first Chinese friend in China has a very special place in my heart. She is a kind of person whose presence makes you feel warm and safe.  In spite of looking delicate she has the potential to do the most challenging tasks too. She works as a managing director in a multinational company. She carries tough responsibilities on her shoulders and at the same time a lovely smile on her face.

‘Xeela’, was the name written by her on my birthday card, it was our second meeting, and she guessed the spelling of my name (because in ‘pin yin’ ‘X’ is pronounced ‘sh’) according to the pronunciation. I’ve treasured that card in my collection, and we laugh a lot on recollecting that lovely memory.

The hearts knows no boundaries and our friendship proves this perfectly.

I’d never thought that this strange name of mine would help me write my X lettered post . 

Love you Xi Wang!

Let’s plan everyday to do something that can give us happiness. Yes HAPPINESS… because a happy person can make others happy and most probably our happiness may return back to us in circles. So what are we waiting for? Let’s start from now…just like smiles happiness should be circulated all around….isn’t it a profitable deal?
