[Text and photos sent by Anjali Dhananjayan]
Anjali Dhananjayan, a confused journalist, escaped this mortal realm on Sunday, August 8, 2100. She leaves behind 2 golden retrievers, 3 soul mates and a huge pot of butter chicken.
Some may remember her as a chirpy bird, big-hearted, energetic and naïve young lady. She was an unconfident yet bold, headstrong female, who wanted to take over the world with her TED talks and pinky promises.
Ms Dhananjayan’s curiosity had no ends. She was one of the rare ones, who’d gulp down a bottle of beer on a Monday night with her soul mates, sharing deep affinity and seeking relentless joy. She had a desire to do anything and everything with or without regrets. At the end of the day, hope is what kept her together.
Ms Dhananjayan loved sleeping under the stars, moon gazing and having 2 am conversations. She could do anything for a soul deep smile on her Maa, Paa and Anna’s face.
What you didn’t know about her was she always had a world, almost parallel, that was dark, sad, raw and too deep for anyone to understand. She will be missed for her sweet nothings, giant hugs, love, smile, flaws and her super loud voice.
