27th year of existence

Yesterday One more year was added to my age (although I didn’t intend to :P)

Gone are the days when I wished to stay out of home all day, travelling long distances with friends. I am 27 now damn it!

What better way to enjoy the day then in the presence of – Awesome pals, Delicious food and Funky drinks.

Due to a miscommunication (funny story though) I got to choose the ‘Secret Birthday Cake’. So instead of one flavour I voted for 5 different flavours. Doesn’t the cake look awesome !! 🙂

Most interesting part was the name of drinks (check the drinks snap), from left to right – Black Magic Vodoo, All About Love, and Kiss Me Red.

A moment from the celebration.

The female waiter came over with the drinks one by one.

Female waiter –  “Ma’am kiss me red”

My friend – “No Thank you”

The 30th Birthday

I was 18 years old. I had envisioned a perfectly smooth and fun-filled life for myself. I was pursuing B.Tech, had a girlfriend to live for, had friends who would support me in every endeavor and a family to feel of. My dreams were as simple as imagined.

  • Successfully complete B.Tech with grades above 7.5.
  • Get a corporate job before leaving college and pursue it steadily for 2 – 3 years.
  • Meanwhile convince parents for marriage with the one I Love.
  • Get married to my Love by the age of 24.
  • Leave job by 25 – 26 years of age, build up my own business.
  • Enjoy a romantic and exciting life with my wife.
  • Set up the income source perfectly along with family and buy a Honda Civic.
  • Have a kid by 29 – 30 years of age.

These were my plans for the next 12 years.

Today is my 30th birthday.   I am sitting in a rented apartment, 1500kms away from home, in a suit holding a glass of wine and staring at this old torn and taped piece of paper. My then girlfriend is long-lost, probably married (so is my last girlfriend). I am still single, doing a job, living a questionable life away from family.

Even though I say ‘I don’t wanna get married’, but I do. I wanted to get married by the age of 24 and live a happy, healthy life with my love. My dreams encircled the single-most powerful variable – LOVE.

Two Birthdays

Do you know anyone having two legitimate birthdays? Isn’t it a strange thing to have two birthdays? Boggles your mind huh! Well, Sahil happened to know two such people.

One was his sweetheart Natasha Singh. At birth, she hardly weighed five hundred grams and doctors told she won’t survive. Thanks to her granny, for taking up the challenge to keep her alive and healthy. Growing up she knew her birthday was on 6th September 1992 and it was not until she reached Xth standard, when she saw her actual birth certificate hidden in one old rusty trunk. There it was printed on bold letters June 5, 1991. In a blink she was a year older.

The other one was his close friend Sneha Panth. While searching the original documents for admission in B.Tech she stumbled upon her birth certificate on which was written December 15, 1995. Her parents had changed her birthday to 25th December 1996 for admission purpose in kindergarten and never mentioned to her. One moment you are 18 years and Bam! The next one makes you 19.

I or anyone who never had this kind of realization in life will never know what a person goes through in such a moment. Is it tears of joy, insane laughter, sigh, anger or your whole life just seems to be a joke?

Anything can happen anytime in Life 🙂
