13th August | Buddhist Temple, Mussoorie
When I say, 'Abundance Universe!' the universe says 'Tathastu'. And how? By blessing me with the world's most special people and bonds.
Parents. How are you so supportive of me? How do you show such immeasurable understanding towards how I think and who I am? When and how did the generation gap between us diminish? For I don't remember stepping back, it must have been you who took some steps forward to meet my thought process. Gratitude!
Grandmother. Maa, you were always ahead of your times. You belong to my generation. Had you been as old as me, you and I would have been two hippie soul-sisters travelling around. It's a blessing to have as my friend. Gratitude!
Friends. Oh dear friends from everywhere. I am still overwhelmed from your soulful wishes. That message from New Zealand a day ago saying, 'Zeb, your birthday has started here!' to that long monologue of a call from Germany making me feel so embarrassingly important to all those friends who missed me in Pune and Mumbai to the gift that arrived home from Kerala and an unexpected call from Bangalore to my twin disturbing my prayers in the monastery all the way from Canada with a 'Bitch, pick up! I am running late for work' to a toothpick of person Instagramming me 'Happy Birthday, snob!' to friends who cared enough to not disturb me because they do not believe in birthdays to colleagues who've become friends to everyone who showered me with love - I love you'll to pieces. You guys make adulting bearable. You all know who you are. While I am happy to be back and meeting half of you real soon, I really don't know when I will be meeting the other half of you again for you are buddies from the road but thanks for being an uncompromising part of my everyday life. I value each one of you beyond this one day and cherish our bond. Love, laughter and gratitude!
