Birthdays become doubly special when

You get gifts a week before the actual day :-) :-) Ash and Priya you guys are the best. My angels.

(There is actually a very cute story associated with this one. Ash asked me for an opinion with respect to watches on one of the online websites, stating she needed to buy one for her close school friend. I told her what I liked. And lo, a week later wasn't I in for a surprise when I find the same watch, after I open the above gift wrapped parcel. I totally loved it because I know how much it costs. Lol I kid :-P)

When your family makes it a point to be there with you 2 days before your special day and plan a smashing birthday weekend outing. Kiniamma, Navin tiddi, Priya you were dearly missed, and I understand why you were not there.

(The pictures are from the amazing lunch we had en route Tamini ghat. My mom had bought the most detailed lunch which included pickles, papads and chaas as well :-) )

When you have a surprise visit from a friend (who has become terribly close in the past one very difficult year, both for him and me) after 12 in the night, and gets loads of peru, chocolates, birthday card and very special handwritten letter. I shall cherish the letter for life my friend.

When your birthday falls on a Saturday. I don't think we need pictures to explain this.

And when its your 30th birthday. I am certainly not explaining this.
