Last but not least, Thanks for being the way you are and allowing me to live the way I love, but I'm really sorry for giving you nightmares in every single aspect, right from my birth to my career and personal choices too. You still care about me regardless my nature, my orientations, my educational choices, my career options and my sexual preferences too. I can say only one thing about you to the World, You may not be educated like others, but the way you think is way broader than the educated and sophisticated people out there. If you were tough on me, I might not be the same person I'm today. Thanks for everything you did!
