|On the joyous occassion of my Birthday!|
We are from a very remote place and therefore, my family didn't have the luxury of marking my birthday on the calender in 1980. I was infact born on a date and time unrecorded. My mom, (now in her 70s) has a vague recollection of moments as to how I was born.
I called her today and she told me that she (still) cannot remember my birthday in gregorian calender. She, however told me that I was born healthy and strong with black hair and black eyes on 13th day of the first month in Bhutanese calender. She also told me that I was born not in hospital and that my father, (now in his late 70s) was my nurse.
So here is how I got my Birthday. 13th day in Bhutanese calender is equated to 13th of March, which usually coincides with the first month in Bhutanese calender. Since I was born in 1980, I became a person, ultimately born on 13th March 1980 in the Monkey year.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
