12 December 2009: My 18th!!

Ummmmm.....straight from my diary even this time:

"I have been waiting for this day since years!! Finally...Happy 18th
Birthday!! Now I am an Adult!!

Mama called and wished 5 minutes before 12. Said I
was going to get busy soon, so she called first.

12 o' clock and Birthday.... B'day pe
wishes, B'day pe bumps, B'day pe holi etc etc...hehehe...
Bumps were not as bad as expected. Bucket filled with cold water, surf, powder,
shaving foam all on me (just imagine my situation: in the wintry chilly December
night at Delhi!! Wow...I made a good rhyme...hehe...). As a result, I had to
take bath at 12.30 AM...just imagine....and this was only the 1st bath of the
Wishes from Siddharth, Amrit, Venky, Love, Mayang
and every junior in the hostel + Shilpa, Vidisha, Lakshita, Rakesh, Pallabi,
Prateek, Somya Vats, Manav, Aunty, Mausa, Mausi, Lise, Pinky and Rohit bhaiya.
Slept around 2.30 am.

Woke up at 7.30 am. Took bath (2nd time). Got ready.

Kuni, Sonu, Maa, Ankita, Bindu madam, Prem, Miku, Saswat, Mala Aunty, Dhruv,

cake cutting and face-painting + Harpic Toilet Cleaner on head. What next? guessed it right... Took bath for the 3rd time...
Wishes from Vivek, Shakti, Rahul bhaiya, Ranjeet, Muskan, Prerana and

At 6.10PM, Papa finally called and wished. I was born at 6.15pm. So he
wished me at the exact time. Wishes from Nana, Swati, Aditya, Saundarya, Asif,
Chavi, Siddharth.

I think I expected calls from many more people today. But...koi baat
nahi...My 18th Birthday was special in many many ways-- the most special one: My
first birthday away from home with my best friends.

Thank you everyone who made my special day much more special for me."
