Today is my birthday. And it's different from all other birthdays because there was no Ma's kiss to wake me in the morning. I complete twenty three years today.
Last night, however, was fun. My roommates woke me at midnight and I was totally surprised to find a birthday cake with my name on it, waiting for me in the hall! It was exceptionally touching because I least expected it.
Last evening, there was a major power failure in the entire locality! Power returned only close to midnight. It felt symbolic of me being in my mother's womb, and seeing the first ray of this world's light on my birthday!
You're looking at another picture (click to enlarge) of little me, one of my favourites, and one that I had great difficulty in restoring to its current picture quality. Looks like a birthday suit, what? :-)
