It's the Twentieth Year of ASKSiddhi

ASKSiddhi is "मेरी यात्रा."

19th August 2003, in a small, old, cockroach-haunted flat in Sagami-ohno, Kanagawa, Japan, ASKSiddhi debuted to the internet world.

Time flies so fast that until today I didn't realize it's already 20 years since then, that equals my life in India. I thank you all for your silent yet warm support and encouragement. 

Currently, I am fighting hard against my mental health. I am hoping I am turning the last corner of this tremendous ultra-marathon of depression and shortly reaching the goal. Like any marathon runner, I am exhausted, but at the same time, I feel the experience is worth my life. I have learned that not everything needs to be "profitable" or a "source of income." I cherish actions that do not expect a return.

ASKSiddhi has been my co-runner and supported me on challenging and regular days. Through ASKSiddhi, I got friends, careers, and unique perspectives, among many benefits. 

In this state of mind, it's challenging for me to have a future projection for ASKSiddhi. I will manage to continue walking with it for a while, and then I will think when the time comes.

On 19th August 2023, I want to tell twenty years younger me that her journey would be pleasant. I also want to forward my message to twenty years older me that I am ready for yet another exciting trip.
