The big B day

Today is Saturday. As on all Saturdays, today also the sun rose in the East and was fast making his way towards the West. As on all Saturdays, today also I woke up well after daybreak. As on all Saturdays, today also my folks were up and about, doing their work without bothering me and bothering about me. As on all Saturdays, today also life just passed me by, keeping its distance from me.

Today is the 3rd. As on all the 3rds, today also the sun rose in the East and was fast making his way towards the West. As on all 3rds, today also I woke up a little older. As on all the 3rds, today also I had the same argument with my folks about how old I really am. As happens on all the 3rds, today also seems like every other day.

Today is my birthday. As on all my birthdays, today also the sun rose in the East and was fast making his way towards the West (In these times when change is the only permanent thing in life, it's nice to see some things not changing with time!). As on all my birthdays, today also I realized that there was no discernible increase in my WQ (WQ is short for Wisdom Quotient. Not sure if I have one to begin with but if I do, it ain't going anywhere. Fast). As on all my birthdays, today also my folks were more excited than me (They are just regular, optimistic folks. They expect to see a grown up son every time I add another year to my slowly but surely growing collection). As on all my birthdays, today also I got gifts, received greetings and heard the same birthday song sung to me (Happy Birthday to you, You were born in a zoo, With Monkeys and Donkeys, and Everyone like you).
