A not-so-alone Birthday

It was my birthday on the 30th of July. For the
first time in my life, I was not going to be celebrating it in India.

The 28th of July was a usual weekend night. A few
of my friends had come over to my new apartment to hang out and jam. One of
them, Nishant, was surprisingly late and I was wondering why he hadn’t made it
yet.

When he finally arrived, it turned out that he had brought
along a cake, chocolates and candles. It was Srivi’s, Vivek’s and Nishant’s
plan all along. I was pleasantly surprised and thankful that my friends had
made and effort to turn my 21st birthday into a small celebration.

The reason they had decided 28th as the date was
because Srivi was departing to India on the 29th. So it was a
mini-farewell plus birthday combined. I enjoyed it a lot and Srivi even had a
small present for me. It was some money she had crafted (origami style) into a
guitar. Fitting J

On the 29th night, minutes before my actual
birthday, I was sleeping when suddenly my doorbell rang. I dragged myself to
the door only to see Andy, Gaurav and Sid, waiting at the door. Their excuse- “You
don’t think we would leave you alone on your actual Birthday”. It was another
pleasant surprise, the second in two days.

So my 21st birthday wasn’t a huge party in India,
but I had two mini celebrations with close friends. It felt right.

 

Thank you guys!

Damn. I’m 21.

 

Tot Later!
