My Birthday Mess Surprise
14 th of this month I woke up as usual and went downstairs. I drank a glass of water and sat on the chair when I got the overwhelmed and unexpected surprise. My two younger sisters had planned something else to wish me my birthday. They wished me with cheerful smile and handed me a small gift. That was my really surprise moment because I have never thought of it. Though I was aware that soon my birthday was coming but couldn't guess that it was that day. For the first time, I forgot my birthday. It is really hard for me coz I was surprised myself. I am wondering how could I forget my birthday? Is that the sign of something else? Was it the sign of some forgetfulness type of thing? I know that can't happen to me but I think that is much of co-incidence. I at once checked my digital diary for the evidence. It was cent percent right.
Though some people say that celebrating the birthday like this is not our culture. It is imported from the west. I have seen whatever somebody thinks if you wish him in his birthday then he will be happy like he's got some special gift. It is not necessary to give expensive gifts and do wired things. The most important is to remember one's birthday. I have heard from my sister that the greatest gift you can give to other is the purity of attention. Likewise, there is no any gift special more than that. The very and the most special thing of anyone's birthday is its uniqueness. Though sometimes more than one people have birthday at the same day, most of the time it is unique. You feel very much extra and privileged at the moment and that feeling happens to be the happiest moment of your life.
It is the fact that many people celebrate their birthday with great expenditure and unnecessary things. We should discourage that in the sense that, in such type of birthday party there is more self enjoyment rather than the true feelings. If we could share the feeling more then the world will become friendlier. Let's start this attitude from ourselves first.
