Yesterday the day was a significant one in my life…yes, long and long years earlier I stepped my “holy” feet in this earth, oh sorry, how is it possible!!!! A child don’t start to walk just after the birth, so it should be…I stepped my “Holy” feet in a material (in the bed) of this earth.
So, naturally the incident that takes place every year in this day is…my closed ones greet me so what do I say in reply?...yes, I thank them for their wishes but the truth is…I don’t celebrate my birthday.
Yes, during my childhood days I used to have too much interest just like other kids to celebrate my birthday with pomp and grandeur, my parents used to make the arrangements to their level best (our financial condition was not so good those days).
But, from the time I have been conscious enough and the analyzing power have been grown up I have stopped celebrating my birthday that’s almost from my high school days.
Those days I used to think…why should I celebrate my birthday? Is there any valid reason?
Janm leke kaun sa teer maar liya meine !!!!
Later some more views generated with this…
(Standing in front of the mirror)…kaun hai be tu jo apni janam din par itna fudak raha hai? Kaun hai tu? You are no one…
Is my birth a successful enough to be celebrated by myself? This question has always haunted me and the answer is…no, my life is still not a successful one, I will consider it a successful one from the time I will be able to do something good for the society and for the human race, till then no birthday celebration from my side.
I have not done any great job taking a birth…it was the decision of the almighty one.
There must be a reason to celebrate it and I have still not been able to create that reason.
When I am living with such thoughts in the mean time the flow of life have added some salts (actually neem leaves extract) and have forced me to remember my birthday with a bitterness in mind, several years back something happened in this very day and I lost my faith on “Simplicity” and “truth” but till now have not been able to be a complex and critical one because I don’t have that capability…I have failed to transform myself, that day I realized it deeply that the critical minds can do anything, they can even transform the truth and present it as a total lie and no one can ignore it, it’s actually happening all around us, what I experienced that day was not only a shocking but also a frightening one, that day I kneeled down in front of some tricky minds and someone who could save me remained silent…till now.
So, now the question is …what about the wishes????
I am really thankful to all those people who have wished me, though I don’t celebrate my birthday but I wish others on their birth days because for the only one reason and that is…”to win the battle you not only need the weapons rather the wishes of the crowd”…I heard something like this in a movie.
It’s a very common practice for the agnostics that they visit temples to take blessings from the God and Goddesses, somehow if they are unable to visit any temple they perform it in front of any photo or idol in house but I don’t do anything such because our relation is not so good, when He does not listen to me then why should I waste my energy????
So, hope now you have already realized that using the “holy” was a sarcastic one, even I will consider myself as a good human being when I will create a reason to celebrate.
What I have shared are my personal views, there is no intention to heart anyone and logically when people can have personal views to celebrate then why I can’t have personal views to not to celebrate????
A very different perspective. But the fact that you are born you are here for a purpose and trust me the day you will identify that you will defintely start celebrating your birthday.😀ReplyDelete
Till then keep our good wishes which will help you bloom in life 😊🌸🌸
That's what i intentionally avoided mentioning in my post..."Purpose", you are right, i have always believed that the almighty have sent each of us for a certain purpose.Delete
Yes, wishes are very much necessary....Thanks a lot for sharing your valuable comment and for the wish.
Belated Happy Birthday. Don't be too harsh on yourself. It's okay to give yourself a little credit once in a while.😊ReplyDelete
Yes, totally agree with you, there are some reasons i have also found to give myself a little credit and this is very much necessary , on the other hand i am not satisfied with those, long way to go and something good to be done.Delete
Thanks a lot for sharing your views and thank you so much for the wish.

Thank you so much Sir, feeling blessed.Delete
This is a special day for everyone. Don't celebrate it if you don't wish to but at least be thankfully aware of being alive and trying to take forward the beautiful journey of life we're blessed with. In fact our b'day reminds us of our commitment to better our life each passing day.ReplyDelete
I'm a Cancerian too and my big day is approaching fast!
Sorry Ma'am but everyone's journey is not a beautiful one, yes i can say it a "good one" and the thought about the B'day... i am totally agree with you, this is wonderful.Delete
Thanks a lot for sharing the insightful views and thank you so much for the wish.
Happy Birthday in advance Ma'am.
