History repeats itself, every year !

26 years ago on 13th February, 1984, Sourav made it to planet earth, to make his family and friends proud with his extra-ordinary hidden talents and skills (which are still hidden and unknown to him and everyone) .. Time goes fast and and in this day I always tend to be a little nostalgic. Every year i do the same math. This year’s math is: “Last year i was 24, next i will be 27!” ;)

Horrendous preparations, large sums spent, broken glasses, devastated flat, neighbors calling the police and pile of dishes to wash – is that all worth that one annual day? As far as I can remember, there was always huge stress as my birthday was to come. Mummy’s express shopping, haggling, ordering a cake, preparing food and then, what seemed to be the worst , my coping with family constantly repeating: “you grow up so quickly! You were so tiny when you were born and now look!”.  As a result of all those party rituals, a mountain of presents was left with my family – mainly bars of chocolate with banknotes inside, flowers, which rot the next day and useless, usually too short garments. And all “fun” mentioned above by family party left the same. Catastrophe.

So when I finally got an obvious answer to this, I was denied of all the gifts and in stead had to shell out some hard earned money to feed those ‘gimme-a-treat-it’s-your-birthday’ friends !

Not forcing you to read the crap we (brother, friends and I) did on my birthday, in stead will ‘torture’ you with a picture collage .. !

Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday, dear everyone, Happy birthday to me! In case I didn't mention it, it's my blog birthday today, it was today I took to blogging ‘seriously’ and ‘personally’ ! :)

I love my family, friends and all those who wished me on my birthday and even those who didn’t wish, but they always wished for my well-being :) Not being diplomatic, I am NOT thanking the world, the ‘me’ haters, the bees, the grass, the honks of the horns, your or my neighbor, etc and not so etc .. !:P

But what about the future? Ahh, the future. Who knows. For now, I plan, as someone legendry said someday, to “keep on keeping on”.. OKAY .. I said that, now I remember ! :D

Love,

Yours truly ‘me’ :)

I think i am the only person who waits for your b’day to get over.. & you know the reason very well. ;).
Thank you for not writing the crap what you did on ur b’day as u have already irritated me by telling those stupid things you did & how you made fun of my sweet bro. :P
The sweet smile while cutting the cake, on your face shows how wonderful your birthday was. I have no regrets for not being the first but i am glad to be the last person to wish you ;)
May the year ahead bloom with moments that will keep you smiling always… :)
