Curtains down, and some thoughts on tomorrow.
2021 was undoubtedly the biggest rollercoaster. The wild ride brought with it learnings, experiences, friendships, hardships, and bereavement. With the third wave knocking at our doors, there is still no skipping to the good part. But as the curtains fall down, the next year yet instills a sense of hope and brings us to a new beginning.
Having spent the last year on My Lawrd, there could be no better way to end it than reflect on the work we did, the people we met, and the challenges we embraced. So here I am, speaking my mind for one last time before we make way for some drastic changes to the way My Lawrd exists as a publisher.
Before I utter another word, I would first like to express that I’m forever grateful to all the wonderful people who did the heavy lifting with me on this project, despite being torn between commitments. To Bhagyashree, Medha, Bhavana, Pukhraj, & Rajat- you guys are awesome! I can’t thank you enough for staying by my side throughout and giving your unconditional love to My Lawrd. You are brave, and I am very certain that you will shine bright in all your future endeavors.
It is equally important to express my gratitude to my interns for their honest hard work, Lawsikho for always helping me find the best interns, the wonderful people on LinkedIn & our Telegram group who continue to make the discourse on tech law richer, and everyone else who helped and supported me in this journey. To people who reached out with messages and e-mails of appreciation & encouragement, you are the rocket fuel that propelled us so far. My gratitude remains bottomless.
The 800+ quality articles we published in the last 10 months are a testament to our progress. But we also had our fair share of failures, forcing us to shed light on our shortcomings, and rethink our priorities and commitments- both as persons and professionals. Not to suggest that we’ve taken the failures to our heart, it is indeed time to bid adieu to My Lawrd’s news-related commitments.
My Lawrd’s purpose was always to cut through the noise and focus solely on technology law & policy updates. With the same spirit, I will continue to keep you informed through this newsletter and pen down insightful articulations on burning issues. I am excited and look forward to what the new order holds, for me and for My Lawrd.
Thank you, and a very Happy New Year!
