Birthday Blues

Am not a much of a "Happy Birthday" person. Hmmmm..... yeah... I always find it embarrassing to celebrate birthdays. Its not a recent phenomena but right since school / college. I am embarrassed especially when I have to blow the candles, cut the cake, smile politely and take in all the hullabaloo over turning a year older. Ah, well, this aspect of my life has not changed over the years (about which you can read HERE)

I had my birthday just last friday. Munish prepared a special midnight spread along with the cake et al. Had loads of wishes over phone, facebook, twitter from family, friends, acquaintances, colleagues, fellow bloggers - Phew!!! I felt special and good. Loved all the gifts which kept pouring in. Birthday gift from hubby is yet to be received (booked already), but I received little tids bits from special friends too. Like the latest header of my blog...thanks to my dearest friend Namit Bhatia...and Oh, he even wrote a poem for me (in return for THE ONE I wrote for him ;-) it was a deal) hehehe.... c'mon, don't you all giggle or laugh...this is his first attempt, and I must say, a pretty good one. Here it goes..........

The Maggitoes Rhapsody

I know a fine girl named Maggitoes,
Who has a penchant for writing prose.

She loves to travel far and wide,
A valiant voyager bona fide.

Photography is her leisure pursuit,
Be it nature or a random shoot.

A self proclaimed Bollywood movie buff,
One lousy flick and she goes, “I’ve had enough”.

Always at odds with the firewall at work,
Once granted access, tweet frenzy ensues as she goes berserk.

Recently bitten by the cooking bug,
Her hubby knows best and he dare not say “Ugh!” :P

Chirpy, bubbly and immensely adorable,
“Oh look! That’s the poem for you, now am I out of trouble?”

~ Namitoes (circa 2011 AD)

yay!!!! *clap clap*....his twitter handle is for all you interested in following his perky, quirky, funny tweets and yes - especially writing tailor made poems on oneself!!!!   


  1. Yes, fantastic poem, ain't it? :D
    As they say, one good turn deserves another. Phew! Glad you liked it. That's one monkey off my back... for now.

  2. :-) hehehe.. right!!!! Now that you have written one, am sure you can write another!!! thanks a ton!!! I hope the header is placed properly?

  3. Ummm... another?!! We'll see :) Header seems to be a little out of bounds towards the right.

  4. Belated Happy Birthday to you and your friend just gifted you a masterpiece! Awesome!

  5. @redhanded... thanks :-) for your wishes!!!!

  6. Happy Birthday --a little late!

    The poem is wonderful. Namit is a powerhouse of poetic talent, I did not know of.

    It sums you up wonderfully right?

    and the header looks cute in its current position. your labels sections is screwed up though.

  9. @anita: yeah, i agree...:-) honestly speaking, i was not expecting any poem from him...but he surprised me...
