You know what, usually by this time of the year, when I type the post which I am going to post, I always feel gloomy. But not this year. This year had been great with regard to something. Now I know the posts I write here are read by people whom I intend to. An acknowledgment is what I had always wanted and I am glad that I got it this year. It meant a lot to me that I had disturbed a friend from her class to come and meet me just to share my happiness with her. It didn’t work out the way I want. That is a different story. But that is how special this year is.
It’s my sister’s birthday and I can’t keep calm. Happy Birthday, Sinduja. And it is a double whammy because your first wedding anniversary is less than ten days to go. I am so happy for you. I am really happy because you are inching towards the thirties club and I am in the entrance waiting for you with a garland to welcome you. Stay blessed. But it has been a long time. We have to catch up sometime soon. Remember the times when you used to save all the five rupees coins you come across to give it to me. The cigarette now costs 13 Rs. That’s how long it is. Think about it.
And a song for you 🙂
And now comes another important person. I don’t believe in coincidences. I don’t think it is a coincidence that this person’s birthday falls in the same date as my sister. Padhma. We know each other for like two years and met her once when she came to Chennai last year. She is one of the gems I found in this vast online world. Some people make us feel special and cared even though they are several miles away from us. Padhma is one such person. When people just ask “How are you” to start a conversation, it was refreshing to see somebody who really mean it. And she wouldn’t give up till she gets the truth.
Padhma, Thanks for being there. I have literally disturbed you in the middle of the night just to ramble about my problems. Thanks for all the patience. Thanks for tolerating my stupidity and mokkai. Thanks for being you. You are simply awesome.
Have a great birthday 🙂
