It's My Birthday


  and a birthday comes once a year,
Mine is today!
I derive my birthday prayer from the words of Arundhati Roy

To love. To be loved. To never forget my own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around me. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget.

I know it's late... very very late. I will not give any more alibi though I am very good at it or making one. But I am just as happy as your loved ones to know you and share special kind of connection with you.

May your special day remind us all how special you are. Belated Happy Birthday Tes.
