Birthday Remembrances

Facing birthdays is challenging.......a day when one is declared to have spent one more year on this planet of ours.

The D-day arrived....the morning was spent wondering as to how to spend the day......... a little dissapointed (an understatement)........finally invited friends over. A pretty gift was thus presented to me....and was also damaged.
The day passed in endless banter........with some delicious food...to provide energy for our useless chit-chatting.

Many instants make an appearance onto the mind which poses as an indelible screen...from the previous birthdays.

Class 10.......the day is blurry....but it is clear altogether.

Morning tution, done with it.......directly went to school.......school started.....without anybody wishing me. I guess that left me....with a sad feeling. A free hour was donated to us....by Frandy dear.....everybody went to the field...except i who decided to complete the biology record.

Scene1: I am the only person in class....Nivi comes up...persuades me to go to the field with her....i stubbornly refuse. Nevertheless....i am on the field a few minutes later.

Scene 2 : I see my classmates enveloping me......lifting me up in the air.......resulted in me getting 15 or 16 birthday bumps. The process left me gasping for air......to hear them singing the birtday song aloud. M, my....was i happy??

Scene 3 : Sowmya, Amulya scold me for not reminding them....amidst the cacophony.

Scene 4 : Everybody is grinning....no prizes for guessing the person with the biggest smile.

Incidents come and go.......this one....especially.

Now that i am past my teens....folks find it hard ro believe it.

As....one affectionately puts it.......with my new hairdo and my glasses...i can easily pretend to be a kid.....with an impish grin.
