Bharathesh! You live your life in the pursuit of happiness, and are truly an inspiration to those around you. Living a life in harmony is your goal, and being around others who are positive and uplifting is most definitely important to you. You can sometimes get down on yourself and get frustrated by circumstances out of your control, but you come out of it quickly, because it is in your nature to be grateful for the many blessings in your life. You no doubt appreciate a little pampering, and the finer things in life, but it is the simpler things you value most: a home cooked meal with loved ones, the beauty of nature, a striking sunrise, and time to relax. Your optimism inspires others, and your devotion to, and compassion for others makes you a wondrous soul to know.
