Biography of Sree lakshmi
About me? ? ? What about me? ? ? Well, may be I can do a character sketch of myself...Here goes nothing...These are my various “Avatars”:
Sree I: Optimistic Sree: I could say more than optimistic, extremely happy & cheerful, very very hopeful and sees the glass “half-full”. Appears when with friends, cousins and occasionally on special days when I am happy.(i.e. the day exams are over)
Sree II: Pessimistic Sree: Very pessimistic. Mostly before going to bed I become ‘this Sree’ and count my curses (instead of blessings) , but if I have seen a good movie or something I remain my normal self. Looks at what I have messed up or is a mess (otherwise also) in my life. WARNING: Talking or mingling with her can be very depressing.
Sree III: Pathetic Sree: How I hate her! ! ! She’s pathetic and sits there and cries, but this Sree comes out only when I’m alone...I’m generally very strong (I mean mentally, physically I’m as fit as a matchstick) and no one sees me crying... Thank God ‘Sree III ‘ only comes out when I’m alone...
Sree IV: Confident Sree: Not very confident, but at least believes she can do something without completely messing it up. Not an extrovert, but Ok. Appears when with close friends, cousins & family (i.e. inside my security circle) .[ Hey, I’m typing this ].
Sree V: Shy and Introvert Sree: Extremely shy... can’t start a conversation... avoids it too. Avoids talking to strangers (read not so close relatives, not so close friends & classmates) .In fact, a total (pacca) introvert.
Sree VI: Philosophical Sree: Not very friendly (i.e. boring) . Awakes rarely esp. after reading a philosophical or romance novel. Totally boring... Thank God she doesn’t awake when with friends or else they would be snoring within two seconds...
Sree VII: Rebel Sree: Very rebellious. Questions everything. Wants to break free... Doesn’t like following the rules laid out by society. ”Don’t care” attitude. Wants to be unique. Calls a spade a spade. Awakes often (again when in my security circle) esp. when debating etc.
Sree VIII: Enraged Sree/ Selfish Sree: Never selfless, but not too selfish. As for the enraged one – has a “beware” sign hung across her neck. WARNING: Better stay away from her, she may be injurious to health. Won’t listen to reason or logic. Mainly blinded by rage (teenage hormones, you know) .
Sree IX: Goofy & comical Sree: Awakes when inside my security circle. Completely... Insanely...Irritatingly goofy. Goes about acting like a duck, making fish faces, trying to whistle (which is an impossible task for me) , and God knows what... Should’ve taken her as “Goofy” in Mickey Mouse...
Sree X: Intelligent and outstandingly normal Sree (compared to the other Srees) : She is a mixture of all the above plus has a good amount of common sense (I believe) & Intelligence & Knowledge. She’s normal yet not quite normal.
In Short, I’m a lunatic who has escaped from some mental asylum... Anyway, if you guys (& gals) know any other Avatar of me, please tell me...

Sree lakshmi Poems
I’m a kite now, Soaring through the skies, Searing through the clouds, Enjoying with my fellow-kites,
The Oak Tree
The oak tree, I stand alone in this bleak moor, I endure everything, Endurance is my faith.
Guinea - Pig
In this grim cage I run, Bleeding, panting, crying, I sold my freedom, For a life- a cruel life.
The Perfect Dictator
What is your ambition? Is it to dominate others? Then you can be the perfect dictator, Realize that what matters is you, nothing more…
Musings Of A Queen
Why do I feel like this, In this wretched pain, why should I suffer? Why am I feeling guilty, For a crime committed by none…?
I’m a kite now,
Soaring through the skies,
Searing through the clouds,
Enjoying with my fellow-kites,
Laughing as we race to the sun.
They broke their threads,
Beckoning me to join them,
To find what is beyond the sky.
But I can’t…the pull is getting stronger now,
