A Sober Birthday

30 years ago, on the 14th of Sep 1979, a tiny one weighing 3kgs was born in a government hospital in a small town called Lalgudi in Trichy district of Tamil Nadu. This kid spent the next eight years of his life in Delhi and eventually settled down in Bangalore in the year 1987.........

What next? You can catch the rest of the story when I release my autobiography!

Well, the birthday celebration this year was a very simple and sober affair. I had taken a day off to spend time at home. Sappu cooked some of my favourite dishes including onion sambhar, aloo curry and a special dal payasam to celebrate the occasion. And after the sumptuous feast, it was time for a nice afternoon nap. Evening time was spent shopping and then eating dosas at parents place. And just when I thought it was all over, there landed Mamta & Mithun with a yummy cake (at 11pm). It was time for some wine & cake to round off what was a simple yet special day!

Thanks a lot to all the people who messaged & called in to wish me and thanks to Sappu for keeping it simple.

PS – My blog also celebrated its fourth birthday and I hope there are many more to follow!!!

Why God?!! Why?!! We had a deal!! Let the others grow old! Not me!!
