4 & A Half Decades On This Planet

Hello 45! I cannot believe that I am now 45 years old. A reminder of the deadly passing of time that you are unable to do anything about – stop, reverse or even slow down! A reminder to party like there’s no tomorrow because you are slowly dying!

At times I feel like someone or something has cheated me and I lost the best years of my life. I did not get to do the things that I see other people enjoying in their 20s and 30s. I think I got left behind. Where did the time go? I want to be young again. Have a bright future ahead of me and go back to being 22-23. And make a lot of changes in my decisions that could have affected my life in more positive ways. If only I could go back in time and make those changes rather than play with these cards that I am dealt with.

Or I can be grateful for another 365 years of live on this planet and give a toast to the previous years that have gone by. The highs & the lows, the good & the bad, the achievements, the failures, the disappointments, the pleasant & no so pleasant surprises and the loves and losses and even the hates! This is a day for reflection and inner search for those few strands of positive things that have made a difference in your life and hopefully, the things that you did that meant something to others.


This is the cake that I bought from Pandhal cake shop for my birthday. My sister and niece also went and bought a cake from another place. Mine was this delicious Rich Chocolate that was so awesome and my sister bought a VanCho cake that was really good too. I had some candled and we enjoyed them just after coffee. I asked my mother to give some to our neighbours who always cook something for us.

By 8 I was sipping rum & Pepsis and we ate the dinner I had bought. Which was veg fried rice, dal makhni (since my sister is a vegetarian), naan, tandoori chicken and butter chicken. Post dinner I had another rum & cola and listening to music online.
