11th April, 2007 – I was just checking the news to see if something good happened on that day. This is what I found!
- Two bombings in the Alergian captial of Algiers, kills 33 people and wounds a further 222 others.  2007 Algiers bombings.
- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announces that Iran has successfully enriched uranium.
- Don Imus‘ television show on MSNBC gets cancelled due to racial slur.
Oopsi! Lets not go there again 🙂
The reason I did that was because I turned 25 years old on 11th April, 2007.
It was a very memorable day all through. At the stroke of midnight I started getting calls from a lot of friends to wish me on my birthday. As this was happening, I realized that my cute little sister was standing at the doorstep with a cake and a candle on it 🙂 You can imagine the smile on my face to see something like that. That was really sweet of her.
It gets better as it goes! I cut the cake and my sister gives me the gifts she had bought. A cute bouquet of exotic flowers which just broadened the smile that was already on my face 🙂 She follows it up with another set of gifts, couple of movies I was searching for from a long time. She had found the DVDs of Million Dollar Baby and Dil Chahta Hai!
Found a vase for those lovely flowers:
Thank you so much Pujha. Love ya a lot 🙂
I wake up in the morning and I am having my breakfast when I get my second big surprise. My close friends Balaji, Swaroop and Srinivas arrived with a cake for me 🙂
Thank you guys. You really made my day!
The rest of the day at work was really amazing too. On an average, I got a phone call / a SMS / a mail at least once every 15 minutes! At the end of the day my sent messages folder on my outlook and my phone were filled up with Thank You messages. My Orkut scrapbook was not different either. Almost 40-50 people remembered to wish me there as well 🙂
It was really amazing and touching to see so many people taking time out to wish me on my birthday. Thank you so much everyone. That really meant a lot to me!
I really thought I was through with all surprises for the day. Well I was totally wrong. Guess what? I had another party on the bus way back home! Route 203 is what I ply on – my company bus. I feel really lucky to have chosen this route. Reason- The bus is full of really sweet, enthusiastic and energetic people. We all make it a point to have a gala time till we reach home everyday (A fun way to keep away the Bangalore Traffic blues).
Everyone on the bus had teamed up to get me a cake 🙂 Yes! My third in the day 🙂 Am I lucky or what.
The cake on the bus…
Thank you everyone on 203. Thank you so much 🙂
I finally reached home and ended the absolutely wonderful day with a warm dinner with my parents and sister. Did have some yummy food at dinner!
And who says birthdays are just another day with nothing special happening… In fact I just discovered that a person celebrates something called Unbithday on any of the 364 or 365 days in which it is not the person’s birthday. So what are you waiting for? Keep wishing me all year through.
Happy Unbirthday to you too…
