My 22nd Birthday…… :) :)

Yesterday was my 22nd birthday…. And hence it added one more year of experience to my life…. I was just recalling the things changed in past one year……. My mindset…. My priorities…. And I learned few valuable things which will help me forever….

Well, before jumping to the philosophy part I would like to share how my day was… it was great… I went to my old campus i.e., North campus with my graduation friend…. We roamed… enjoyed our favorite street food… then walked on the streets of Kamla Nagar Market…. Recalled old days and missed our graduation time…

Then I did shopping for my mom…. What can be better than buying gifts for your loved ones….. And to make them smile…. :D After that we few friends assembled at Connaught Place and celebrated my birthday… And that wasn’t the end… I then went to my place and celebrated with my family… :D….

It was a great day…. Though few things went wrong… some misunderstandings…. Misconceptions…. Which still need to be cleared :(

I can really sense the changes as m growing… changes around me…. In me… My mindset my outlook…. Everything changing…. Usually I cry on my birthday may be coz I want it to be perfect and to celebrate it with everyone I love which is not possible always…. That’s something cannot be justified…. Yesterday after 10 years I realized I have no tears left nor I bother about silly things… Yes I do feel terribly bad about few things but crying part is missing… And here I recalled my professor’s words….

In graduation, my Physical Anthropology professor once said,

“Enjoy the feelings you have today, the smiles, the laughs, the tears, the pain, the hurt…. Coz as you’ll grow mature you’ll realize you are losing all the feelings within… you’ll cry no more…. Very few things will hurt you and you won’t shed tears like you do today”

And today I realized how true he was…. I do cry…. But less now…. I do bother about people but very few people…. I do laugh but rarely…. Things so changed….. And so I am….

I realized people ditch you when you need them the most… Here people are those people who call you friend and enjoy moments with you…. But when you want them to stand beside you…. You’ll find them enjoying with others…

And suddenly I realized my post is going more towards sad things….. NO NO NO….. That’s just not me :P Some bad experiences were ruling my mind and it came out :P

Anyways…. Even after few bad things I love my life and all the imperfections and as I am growing I am falling even deeply in love with it…. I love My family, Myself, my life and few good friends :)

Life is the most precious gift of God and even more precious are the people whom I love and who love me… without them life is nothing…. And of course I love you my blog :D…. this is my first birthday with you.... Muaah :)))

And this post is incomplete without remembering the one I usually complain to for all wrong things…. My dear God…. Thank you for everything….. Love you :)

Life is all about changes .. it's how gradually accept them :)

Someone has gone old :P

Love, wishes and prayers for you Deepika .. I'm sure you are concentrating hard on the placements and wish the best job offer for you this birthday :)

Take care Deepika !

Saif said...

hmm ... so now you're maturing ... it will be interesting to know the mature Deepika ... so far I have known the childish, kiddish, and sometimes stupid (haha, sorry) Deepika ...

Yeah,there comes a time when some of the negative things do not matter that much ... even when I look back at time, I realize how stupid I was to react at certain silly things in a particular way ... probably you're going through the same thing ...

... and hey that's not fair ... remember, you told me that you'll do something when you'll be at North campus ... anyway, that wouldn't have mattered because right now I'm in Allahabad, will be reaching Delhi tomorrow ... and perhaps it would have not been appropriate for me to be at your birthday celebration with your friends ...

... good that you had a fun time and relived some of your old memories, and like you said don't be too concerned about the slight negativities ... focus on the happy and joyous part :)

well, I think my comment is getting too long :D ... so, I'll stop here ...

Take care!

ladytruth said...

Happy belated birthday :)

It's true; as we get older, we lose our sense of wonder because with every new experience we let our hearts sometimes harden in order to block out pain. But it's wonderful that you have so much love for your family and friends and blog ;)

May this be a good year.

Shaunak said...

Whoa! A post after so long! Was wondering where you'd disappeared to.

Happy belated birthday buddy! Glad you had a great day :)

As we grow older, our experience grows, we grow, mature into an ever-evolving personality. Knowing what those changes are, recognizing the emotions for what they are...that's what life's all about. You're on the right track.

Cheers! :)

Kay said...

Happy Birthday! and your professors words are sooooo true...I never looked at it that way, but eventually we all do just become 'numb' to lifes experience, searching for contentment we brush emotion away...kind of sad now that I think about it. Best wishes for 22!

Nazish Rahman said...

Belated happy bday buddy!

liked the words of your professor.

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”

GARF said...

heyy....belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I guess its too late and am sorry for being this late. Work...all weekends and it has been three weeks that ways and am still at office. Finally today, i got up and said, even if i am busy, i can no longer wait to read the blogs. Hope that explains.. :)

hats off to your Physical Anthropology professor. That is so true. I never pondered the way you did but as i read it, i realised them and can see the changes. I also cry on my BDay's and New Yesrs...and i too feel cheated....i always get hurt..and friends do it, some knowingly and some...
But i am never able to stop myself and say that its going the sad way. That is what makes you score so beautifully i guess....be the same. :)

happy b'day... albeit belated:)

Aevi said...

I loved what ur Physical Anthropology professor had to say. But I dont agree to people ditch you when you need them the most I think its a wrong act on our part that we have way too many expectations from others.

Expectations are always brutally slaughtered. Just try to work out without expectations and u'll be amazed on the # ofhelping hands life has to offer
