I am 33 Plus and I am Feeling Nostalgic

Yesterday midnight when the clock struck 12, I became 33. I don't know the reason yet but I feel I am aging faster than my age. As the wishes started raining on my Facebook, I felt my excitement level surge. I became restless like a child, so eager to slice the cake, blow off the candle and sing aloud.  

But on the other hand I felt nostalgic about my beautiful past. To be precise I felt nostalgic about my past journey in life. As a little boy, I had all the fun in the world except the birthday fun.

As I progressed, I have been to some of the good high schools and colleges of my time. I met different friends and learned special lessons of life. I have often discovered many things. I call them significant ones! Today my birthday happens to be one such discovery I made then. I came to know that my birthday actually meant my identity too. But it took bit of math from my side and memory form my mother who have 10 such birthdays to remember (meaning I have 10 siblings) However we found out that I was born on 13th March 1980. 

I was born when my father and mother were struggling to settle in life.We had no house to be called as our home. My family never had uncle and aunts or for that matter any relatives who were rich and powerful enough to uplift us. But with each passing birthdays,  My family progressed. I grew up just like the way my other siblings did. Things have changed now. We have a house we call our home. 

I now celebrate my birthday to mark the the progress I have made in my life. I have done it before and want to do it in future. Today I had a great time with two of my Gujarati friends. The momos we had for lunch were the tastiest. I liked it so much. I should have gone for lunch with empty stomach!  any ways I would like to thank them for making my day. One of them also wrote these message on my wall and I am touched. Please read it for yourself, 

Hey Kuenzang!
I still remember the first time you introduced yourself to all of us! You were a person from the foreign land back then, but now..You have become a Total Gujarati!!!

I am going to cherish all the fond memories of the time we spent together-the canteen chai, pani puris, and vadapaus, navratri, and diwali, and all our birthdays...I guess all these memories are enough to last for a life time!
And I hope this Birthday of yours also becomes a part of it :-D

You have been a constant source of inspiration for all of us, and on your birthday, I wish that you hold on to this charisma even in Bhutan. Needless to say, You'll be missed!

P.S.- This post sounds like a farewell letter but is actually a Birthday Wish!

I WISH YOU ONE THING WHICH IS MOST IMPORTANT FOR THE BHUTANESE ECONOMY-HAPPINESS AT ALL LEVELS!!

HAVE A VERY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY:-D

My three friends who always made my Birthdays special in Ahmedabad. Thank you friends
