Every year it is a tradition to pay a visit to Little India on the eve of Deepavali. The crowd doesn’t deter us.
Happy Deepavali, everyone. 🙂
I do seem to do alot of random postings. The simple reason for it is because I have a hard time coming up with a suitable and catchy name for the post.
Today I turnt 33. When I turnt 30 3 years back, I was very upset. I was upset not because I was turning the big 30 but rather because my mother was upset. And why was my mother upset? simple. I am getting older but I am nowhere near getting married any time soon. In my society a female in her 30s and single actually means the female is actually in her 50s or 60s. At least that is how my society views unmarried women in their 30s. and I joined that club 3 years back. I would have to say that every birthday after that only got worse. I did not even want to acknowledge that it was my birthday until today. suprisingly I am not upset about my age this year. Does it mean, I am maturing in my thinking? Maybe. At the end of the day, I have people who care about me. I may not be their first priority as obviously their family would be the priority. But I know I can still depend on them when I need them. and most importantly I have two things in my life that I am very grateful for. Firstly and very importantly my mother. The only living being who breathes and lives for me. and secondly but not as importantly but more importantly then others my profession. Maybe life isn’t that bad after all. I don’t know whether I would feel the same way for my next birthday but for this year, life is good. 😊
