I can never grow old, only richer!!

I turned 28 last month on the 18th of july, and believe me you guys made it awesome for me..i would have sincerely loved to do a give away of some kinds, but sadly nobody thought of sponsoring my blog with beautiful templates and skimpily clad models talking about sunscreens. Anyways ,what matters most is as i add another candle on my cake every year, another inch to the waist, another lesson in life i also add another good friend to share it all with. The last year especially has been super sexy because i got so many of you to be a part of my life. Thank you guys, since you have just had a teaser so far, the best of me is yet to be uncorked !!

When i was 16 i was freaking out at the thought of growing up and growing old. i wondered whats going to happen to my basketball shoes, who will wear my sun caps, who will ring the bell on my bicycle, how will i ever live without my hole-ridden shorts and why am i supposed to have long beautiful hair. I also kept a mental note of never kissing a boy because i can not have a baby at this age (stop smirking you smart one's)

At 28 i love the grey streaks that show up when i tie my hair in a knot, i love the feel of the man i love the most next to me while i watch the news, i enjoy g
etting up at 6 every morning to water the plants, feed the fish and toast breads for us, i enjoy keeping a tab of what needs to be brought next for the house, having spent a fortune on the home theatre, i pride myself on sending that bouquet of roses and cak
e with my credit card on fathers day and i realise i dont want this to stop. Today when i type this down , i see a ring on my finger which makes me the worlds luckiest woman to be spending the rest of my life with the man who is my world, i have a watch on my left wrist which reminds m
e how much i miss my parents and a gift given by them 3 years back is so precious. I am wearing a pair of mojri's which remind me of the day i learnt that street side shopping is as much fun a
s Westside and i do not shy away from raste ka maal. At 28 i have earned myself so many friends who have made up for every tear i have ever shed.

Sometime back , maybe 3 years back i was so afraid of growing old, of getting wrinkles , of gaining weight, of being left out, of not knowing which is the top 10 song in the US Billboards or not knowing what is the new colour of the season. And today as i write th
is, feeling unputdownable, one of the most loved people on this earth, feeling
absolutely pretty, so full of life and so blessed that none of my fears can ever ever scare me again. I guess all of us are at some time in life afraid of growing older
but hell no !! i am not!! i love to do my Tequila shots , i enjoy being lazy on a sunday morning, i love
making an excuse at office and going for a drive with G,I enjoy every minute i speak to ma over the phone telling her how i dint get wet in the rain and yes i do fry fishes in the weekend for the hungry husband. I look forward to the warmth of a tiny throbbing heart inside me someday, the little fingers curled around mine, the look of a proud father in G's eyes, the first football match for the baby or the first time i buy a pink hairband for our princess. There is so much to look forward to that i realise growing a year older is optional but growing another friend a year is mandatory.

Happy Birthday my gorgeous self !!! i love myself and i love you all for making me feel this way!!!!

Happy birthday once again Sulagna Di :) Yes growing up is fun. I really loved the idea of getting a new friend every year. Enjoy your day !!

Dipti said...

and once again, sulagna manages to express herself in such a beautiful way that touches the deepest chords of my heart. i felt a lil mirchiee-feeling inside my nose when i passed the 'pink hairband for the princess' part , lol.

you are amazing. hope you add hazaaaar candles on the cake...with millions of such beautiful moments and memoris in your heart every year.

loveya gorgeous :*

Asif said...

hehehe that was wonderfully expressed as ever :)
They say in one’s life there are two stages where we enjoy the life of a child. One is when you are young and the other is when you are getting old. :) Either ways we are children at heart only thing is that it all depends on how we look at it. Your post makes your readers (single) to think about marrying immediately :D :D
Yeah ! looking forward to read about the first football match of the prince and also about the pink band which you are going to buy for the princess :)
Belated Happy birthday once again to the child inside you :)

Tamanna A. Shaikh said...

Sooo very true. I am in the position that you were in before. I'm afraid of growing up more. Afraid of marriage and everything else like that. O.o But I think it's nature's way that you wrap yourself around time and cherish the bygone and enjoy as you grow. :) WEll written hon!

Harini said...

suruchi said...

Hi Su...
You know, you remind me of that tagline of some ad on tv...
You’ll be “gorgeous hamesha”
Touchwood to all the blessings you always count...there’s so much to learn in that from you!
And may there be no fears as you venture forward in life..
May there be smooth sails n no rough edges!

A beautiful, sensitive, motivating post this is!
But then, do we ever expect or get anything else from you!
Loads of love to the sweetest full of life birthday girl!
May we get to celebrate you forever!:-)

Read 2 posts now. Do not ever take what some persons say on your posts to your heart. Carry on with what your conscience says. I am sure your parents will be proud that you have grown wise as this post indicates. All the best for your wishes to come true soon.

Take care
