Feelings And Emotions On My 62nd Birthday


As we know, a birthday comes once every year. We are not talking here about many birthdays a year for some secret reasons. And it is a story of the past when nobody was aware or cautious about remembering, greeting or celebrating the birthday and the said day was passing unnoticed just like any other day.

Greetings and celebrations are must nowadays for many causes like birth, marriage, inaugurations and getting some award, appreciation success. And so birthday celebrations are a must. I want to talk about ways and time of birthday greetings and emotions that followed.

The birthday celebration is a special topic and I am avoiding that to concentrate on my emotions and feelings after receiving greetings on my 62nd birthday. I received greetings in all forms - personally, cards, phone calls, mobile and internet. I will not tell this and that number for any of the above and directly go to the subject.
  1. I do like greetings from anybody and everybody. Naturally more the number, the better. With increasing age, more relations exist and as per the present day fashion, the number is bound to be high. Well, it satisfies my ego and makes me feel worth living ahead. So I would love to greet someone, on birthday even for formality sake and just to make him/her feel good.
  2. Mobile and Phone Calls: I am happy the callers on the phone were full of a sense of responsibility, warmth and enthusiasm of wishing me HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Instead of talking about a single sentence and stopping the conversation, ideally, a dialogue of reasonable length and many did so. Dry- Formal- Compulsory- without heart greetings on phone can disturb me and make me unhappy. Better one should opt to avoid calling in such an irritating way. When someone calls me, I understand he cares for me, knows my birthday and thinks I am an important person to be greeted at least by phone.
  3. Facebook Friends and Mobile Messages: Most of the regular Facebook user friends, wrote a message on my page about the birthday. One addressing my relation with them like Masaji, Mama, Pappa, Fuvaji and brothers appeals me more than simple words of Happy Birthday. Nevertheless, greeting someone is always better than not greeting at all.
  4. No doubt, writing a personalized message with the card, sort of flower, at a length, cake photos, message or writing in a poetic way on Facebook does have a more impressive effect. The messages were flowing so big in number; I was feeling emotional about them and finding the Facebook friendship worth continuing. Whatever others may feel. It is making me astonished seeing the magic of connectivity all over the world.
Birthday denotes the increase in the age and comes once every year. In past few years, it is noticed, greeted and celebrated. Anybody - as I do - would love to be greeted. The ideal would be to have emotions filled with words and voice while communicating greetings. Nearly all were having so many emotions of love and respect. Shall I start waiting for my next birthday?

Anavils - An Endangered Community

After Parsis, Anavils (Anavil Brahmins, અનાવિલ બ્રાહ્મણ ) are the fastest decreasing community. The total population of Anavils around the world does not exceed two lakhs figure and that is also fast reducing day by day. Days are not far, beyond a century or so, when they will have to be seen/found in records, photos and videos. Why?

Because,
   - they get married too late,    - many are dying unmarried,    - they wait for the career to be settled before the first (and maybe the only) childbirth.

Rahul & Shivani's Wedding

Whatever smartness or intelligence one has, to decide the probable attitude of future partner is difficult. So for the continuation of a marriage, adjustment and compromises are must, compulsory.



One has to marry because the law does not allow man-woman physical relations at random and society has laid certain norms of man-woman staying together. Though liberate present-day scenario allows live-in relations and physical relationship without much fuss, marriages are unavoidable.

Once decided to marry, the second question arising is the method – the technique of the wedding. How many persons to be invited, the place of the wedding, the menu and its preparation and the details of the function is the subject of this article.

Who Is At Fault: India, Pakistan, Or Both?

India-Pakistan relation’s issue is a very complex subject and to summarise it in a 180-page book needs great skill. This interesting book ‘India Vs Pakistan: Why Can’t We Just Be Friends?’ written by Husain Haqqani caught all my attention. I also got an opportunity to present its review to my fellow members of the Senior Citizenship Club. Following their enthusiastic response to my talk, I now have this great urge to share the review with my blog readers as well.


I shall try by introducing the author, telling about different wars, what leaders of India, Pakistan and other nations tell and finally the conclusion.
