In Accountancy, one of the major components of a balance sheet is ‘Cash and Cash Equivalents’. These are items that are cash or can be converted to cash easily. A company cannot run without cash. That much is obvious.

As a soon to be commerce graduate, and a word enthusiast, I now bring to you how I connect and apply Commerce to daily life.

These two final years of school have not been a walk in the park. I certainly would not have survived it without the help of all those people that gave me hope, kept faith in me and made me smile.

Here’s to lots more years of being with you. 🙂


Presenting to you,

Love and Love equivalents.

The ultimate component of life is love. Evaluating this love and acknowledging it should be done on a regular basis. Take time to appreciate the things around you and the people that make your life what it is.

When we think of love, the first thing that comes to our minds, unfortunately, is roses and hearts and probably how single we are. We don’t instantaneously think about loving and accepting love from the bigger things in life.

I talk now of my parents, who have loved me to bits despite my hundreds of flaws. How they don’t give up on me, is beyond my understanding. Raising a child like me must be taxing on them but they’ve never shown it. The nights where I sought their warmth because of my fever that made me shiver, the days I couldn’t find my socks in the morning, the days I told them that I failed to meet their expectations again and they said that I could, the afternoons crawled together watching television on the couch, the long drives at night, the silly arguments just so that they could watch me laugh, the positivity they radiated through their smiles, the foamy coffee which was so good, the ice cream with cashews and strawberries, and the dinners at a variety of restaurants.

I’m sorry for everything I’ve ever done to hurt you.

Thank you for your unconditional love that was and will always be so important to me.

I hope that when I grow up, I can be atleast one tenth of the parents you are to me.

Next up, are my two pillars of support, my cousins.

Without you, there would be lesser fangirling, lesser tears, lesser laughter, lesser happiness, lesser excitement about anything, lesser life in me, and ultimately, lesser me. I wish I could carry the two of you in my pocket so you can be with me on every step of the way. With your support, affection and encouragement, you made these two years a little easier. Thanks a ton.

Third on the list are my closest friends.

Namely- I.M, V.V.T, S.G      😀

Sometimes I can’t believe that I have friends like you. Time makes you feel old all the time. But knowing that you have stuck with me for so long, makes feeling older feel much better. I can’t believe that you believed in and stuck with this scatter-brained-music-loving-story-telling girl. Thank you.

The other people I would like to thank for their relentless love, prayers and prep talks are my grandparents. I looked forward to every Friday for the phone call in the morning to hear your voices and cherished every word you had to say. Thank you for being there for me and believing in me.

To everyone else who has touched my life in some way or the other, including my teachers, who, by the end of the year I grew to eventually love them all (albeit some a little more than the other), my classmates, who gave me the confidence to develop my personality and accepted me open heartedly, my Aunt, who helped with my homework through skype sessions and my other relatives who wished me luck throughout the way.

School was an ethereal experience. If I took some lessons home, it would not be much of studies, but more of friendship and respect and love. Thank you for making my fourteen years memorable.

Last of all, I would like to thank the universe for letting me be and for letting the earth exist. Without the Earth, I’d never be able to graduate.

Love is everywhere. Stop looking for it in a single place. Be more passionate. Be more real. Be more you. Because at the end of the day, you have only yourself.

Love and love equivalents is all you need.
