How do you wish to celebrate your B'day?

For some, birthday is just another day. And for many it's a day to feel special and get all the attention one can afford. Have you ever thought what would be the best way to celebrate this day?

How about spending it with your mom and present her with some nice gift? This sounded very meaningful to me, wow! I must have caused her so much pain all my life yet she is the one who makes me feel special the most (Father India gives her a tough competition in this regard !!) God, I love them so much...

Send yourself a card. A few days or weeks before your birthday find a card you love, sign it and write yourself a note. Then address and stamp the envelope and ask someone to mail it to you a couple of days before your birthday. This is a great way to guarantee a card, and I promise it will make you smile.

Go shopping!! I'm sure you have thought of this one already.

Go on a weekend trip, do some new and exciting adventures/sports! Wish I could make it to amazon forests some day, not alone of course..

Go out with family or close friends to your favorite restaurant (tried and tested over the ages with guaranteed results)!!

Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none - William Shakespeare.

What is love? It is one of the most difficult questions for the mankind. Is it what happens in a moment or what grows in a life time? Is it wrong to go for your best friend if he/she says they love you (Obviously you are not sure of it as you don't know what love is), hoping you will love them someday soon; or say you will know what love is?

An ancient proverb says love is a high form of tolerance. Yeah, that must be love to take any s*** from some body and not even realize that it is in fact s***! Love must be blind..

They say love is nothing but intense feeling of care. Why is it so difficult for few to feel the intensity of anything? May be power of detachment is greater than power of attachment for them. Sometimes it does make you doubt if you are in fact a "wall". That's different, there are times when you hoped you were a wall; To feel nothing must be a great state to reach!! And when you actually feel like a wall you doubt your very own existence.

Then a thought comes why do you have to make a decision? Why is it so necessary to make it now? They say time waits for none. They say you are getting old and its about time. Oh, boy! lets not talk about that; now that I am turning ** in next 60 mins!!! Wouldn't it be wonderful to let things happen than take a conscious decision (at least the ones related to heart if there are any)? Well, you don't decide to make friends with anybody, do you? You don't ask someone if they want to be your friend. You just be their friend. To me, friendship just happens!! Never planned it.

It may take may be too late when I feel it. But I am certain I will feel it strong that I will have no time to think about any thing else or any one else. I did not mean that I think of any one else today. Its just that I don't think of "nobody". Or say I have so much to think of that I don't know if I should even think... hmmm, I am going to be a heck of a writer. There will be so much light that you would wonder if it was dark ever :)
