I don't know what to say about myself. I had thought of not writing this page, but
my wife Meenakshi (Meenu as I call her) would just not let me
stay behind the pages. She insisted that I should share with
you all my love, feelings and emotions personally.
If bringing people together
your aim then bring yourself close to your viewers/readers first.
Make them know and feel whom are they dealing with. Share your life,
emotions, success and failures with them and then see if they like you
Well, here I am Sanjiv Tyagi, a proud husband
of the most beautiful and kindhearted wife, a blessed son of the most
loving parents in the entire universe, a brother, a friend, a
colleague and above all . a Human.
To tell you in simple
words, my life rests on four major pillar in my life.
Ill start with telling you about
First pillar of
my life - My Father!
I remember how I always wanted to be like him.
When I was a
kid, I often use to act like him, talk like him, walk like him and
many a times stand like him.
voice was loud and so is mine. Till today my colleagues in office and
my family often ask me to be low on volume, but, just like my dad, I always seem to
My father was a man who did not know how to hate. A man - who loved and was
loved by one and all. A man for whom, family and friends were above his own
life- thats who I wanted to be and that's who I always
want to be.
I wouldnt say that I am not like him. I am, to an extent
- but he was million years ahead of me and I know, to reach that level would
only remain a dream for me forever...
But I am trying and I'll
keep trying till the
day I bid good bye to this world forever....
My Soul - My Father!
pillar of my life - My Mother!
is the one soul under this sun who could never rest in peace if I was ever
I remember my good old childhood days when she would beat me up for some
mischief (I too was mischievous!!- a lot of you may not know this!!)
and would then cry over the fact that she slapped me.
She would not eat her food until I had eaten mine. She never ever served
me cold food. Even till today if I reach home at 3'O clock in night, she
always prepares fresh food for her Sanju.
That's how she love her son - her Sanju!
My Shadow - My Mother!
all the wealth in this world in exchange for my 'Mamma's' love and you'll still find me
standing right next to her.... No compromise - Sorry!
So you see? It is not without any reason that I say that I
am a blessed soul on this earth.
There is not even a slightest doubt in my mind that my
parents are the incarnation of GOD for me. They are my GOD who gave me the
most precious gift in life - the life itself...
Third pillar of my life - My
Brothers and Sister!
No matter where in the world I live and no
matter where on this earth do they stay, the bond that our parents
tied us together with, is the strongest between us. We are three
brothers to a darling sister and guess what? we are four bodies with
one soul, one heart and one bond that keeps us all tied together...
and that bond is the love between us...
My Brothers and Sister -
My Sons, My Daughter!
For me, my brothers and sisters
are like my children, my own children and if you have a heart of a parent, you know how I feel about
pillar of my life - My Wife.
In India, we believe that wife is the second
half of a husband and that they both are incomplete without one another. I am
the living proof of that statement. And I tell you, if you haven't got married
yet - get married soon. You'll never know what you are missing until you fall in
love! I call my
love - my 'better half'.
The fact that she is such a kind hearted, emotional,
understanding, caring and a loving person in my life makes me feel of myself as
one of the most fortunate people in this world.
certainly may have
done some good deeds in my previous life to have got such a soul as my
The truth is, I really don't have any life without my Meenu...
I am all yours! - for the
rest of my life...
Ask me about life and I'll point my finger towards all
these four pillars because they are the meaning of life for me.
The 'Other' Side of Sanjiv!
what it is about my family, and now, please allow me to share the other side of
Ever since my childhood,
was fascinated by the work of art. Drawing and Painting are
some of my passions. I remember when I was in school, every year I use
to get the first prize in all the drawing and painting competitions.
What a moment of pride it use to be for my parents and my family.
They say I make Good Paintings, I say - I Paint
I wish I were a
That's correct! - If I would not have been a
software professional, I would have been an artist or a poet or a
writer. That's because apart from art and paintings,
also love writing poems and short stories. I keep a diary where
I put whatever strikes my mind as a potential theme for my stories or
poems (now a days I am also doing this to build this site, you know
I love expressing myself in writing. As an example, here's my very
short poem that I wrote when I first did my
personalized photo gifts page. After re-doing that page I had removed this
poem but it still is as fresh in my mind as it was then. Here it is;
I saw her smile... I clicked.
I saw her crawl... I clicked.
I saw her dancing down the hall,
I sang for her... I clicked.
I washed her hands, I washed her face,
I washed her tears... I clicked.
I took her in my arms' embrace,
I prayed for her... I clicked.
I knew that she would miss me too,
I smiled for her.. I clicked.
I let her soar up high in sky,
With pride for her... I clicked.
... I clicked
... I clicked
... I clicked
Next thing close to my heart is

Please don't think I am praising myself, but the fact is that when I get
a camera, I feel like capturing every moment of life in all its forms.

Though God has given Head a place above our Heart
but somehow I always seem to think much by my heart than by my mind.
somehow seem to have learnt that 'If you
follow your heart you can never go wrong'.
wrong in my thinking, but that's how I have lived my life and that's what
I truly believe in and I must say - I have no regrets!
I have always loved giving gifts. I never believe
in the price or the monetary value of the gift. For me, the biggest
price is the thought that goes behind that gift. I strongly
believe in the following statement which is the essence of this whole
So, Gifting-Emotions is one such step that I wish to
take to help people come really close to the ones they love. It
is an attempt to give them courage to say 'I Love You and I Care
for You' in a most special way. Gifting-Emotions will bring hope for the people to look
beyond imaginations - to express the inexpressible, to hear the inner
voice of their emotions and to give the most fascinating and emotional gifts
to the people who truly mean something more to them.
The mission of my site is in fact
the mission of my life - To help bring people close to their loved ones and
tospread the message of Love.
I want to touch each and every
heart in this world and pass on the message that life is meaningless without
love and all those lovely people around you. In fact, I believe, there is no life at all
I want to touch every soul and say
that as water is essential for a healthy plant so is the need to stay in touch
with your loved ones for a healthy relationship. World is too small to not to
Love. So don't wait for others to express themselves, reach out to them,
touch their heart, touch their lives, express
your love, your care, your affection for them and you'll be amazed to see how people
respond to your love and affection.
I want to tell the whole world
that no matter how high we may have reached we should never forget the
contribution of those people who touched our life in some way or the other, be it;
Our Brothers and Sisters,
and never to forget Our GOD!
Blessed are the souls who are
loved and have someone to love. They are your best gifts.
I chose personalized gift as the
subject of my site because we all love receiving gifts and when you personalize
your gift, that gift no longer remains a simple gift. It becomes your identity,
an ultimate symbol of your love and affection because of the fact that you not only bought it -
you took time and devotion to personalize it for that special someone in your life and that's
That's all I am ...
To sum it all, Gifting-Emotions is what I am...a soul
full of emotions and love. And this soul is not mine alone. All the
goodness, if at all I have any, is what my parents gave me, and
thats what I intend to share with you all.
If you feel loved here, if you feel belonging to this piece of web
then its not because of the beautiful and unique gifts that you
find on this site but it is more because of the beauty and the
goodness of your heart that knows - that
there is something beyond buying and selling that exist between you
I do not say you buy only from my site.I also do not say that you buy only what I recommend. But what
I do say is that if you love someone, Say
it,and say it in the most special way.
special someone really happy. Bring a smile on their face
because thats what counts the real worth of your life.
If my site or I could be of some help
to you or your loved ones in any way I d consider it as the greatest tribute and homage to my
father, who is no more with us (but
who always stays in my heart forever...)
I know youd say that I have written so much about my family, my father, emotions
and life. Well, to tell you the truth - this is all that I am and if you
would have felt the page talking to you then youd have known that
I have written everything about myself...everything.

experience to share with us, please do not hesitate to
