Happy Birthday!


Hmm… the first week of September is so important. Three of my best blogger friends, two of whom I’ve met, celebrate their birthdays in these 7 days. Abysmal memory that I have these days, I’ve managed to forget one, nearly forget the second, and thankfully managed to realize the other one is tomorrow. I gave two of them belated wishes in a very small postscript note at the end of the previous post., but that doesn’t do my wishes any justice. So here goes a better wish…

On the first day of the month of September, born is a dear friend who is a Virgo but has all the zodiac signs in her name itself. I met her last November in a rain drenched day at the Lounge and through a shoutbox, became friends with her. We became admins of the Lounge on the same day, and we have been by each others side through blogging times. Her tastes in novels and music are similar to mine, and a passion for doing what we do perfectly is also there. I met her 3 days before my birthday, in Bangalore, and she is an absolute gem of a friend to me. Belated wishes, but still with all my love… Happy Birthday Rashi..

On the third day of this September, she turned twenty three years young. How much I care for this gal, perhaps words cannot express. She’s a brilliant writer, poet, romantic… A blogger with a huge fan following… and most of all.. my darling sister… Lost in the maze of MBA studies, she’s invisible to us these days. Sometimes very direct dil se, sometimes very mysterious… From the first days of her blogging, to the latest days of her new blog, I have been by here side and she by mine. Lots of laughs, bit of misunderstandings and angry frowns.. all together a lovely package of memories I shall never forget. Even more memories to be made… Belated wishes, but still with all my love… Happy Birthday Kajal aka Callie aka Rane, The Orchid With All Shades Pink…

Tomorrow, (one out of three birthdays I remember, SIGH!!) the once Kolkatan now Bangalorean blogger celebrates her birthday. My friend since a couple of months back, but a very cherished friendship nonetheless,  this journo-to-be is one super gal. A very passionate photographer, famed blogger, terrific friend and what not! She’s someone whom I helped as much as I could when she asked me for help on Bangalore bus routes, hotels, fares, directions.. etc etc! Someone very easy to chat with, who is busy chasing her dreams with passion too… I’ve met her just once, for 20 minutes… but still had a nice time talking to her. Wishing her a very happy birthday, in advance… Happy Birthday Raka aka Phoenix.

PS: 3 posts in a day might be too much, since I’m planning on posting again later in the evening. Do read my dedication to teachers, which is the previous post & comment there too. Thank you..!

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
