b-day and The V Day

Oooooh! I will be 23 tonight. 23!! I never imagined that I will reach this age.

I imagined that when I will be 15, I will get a bike - I got Hero-Puch

I Imagined that that when I will be 18, I will be in a college with tones of chicks around. (Like we see in American pie) - I landed up in IIT Madras

I imagined that when I will be 22, I will be working for all the large investment banks cracking M &A deals all by muself. I landed up in….err….I guess I am currently working in the firm so I should not comment.

So on none of the occasion I felt special as I imagined. But this b-day is new. I am feeling special. I am feeling – Fucking old!!

Yeah when ever I see the figure 23, it made me think of the little time I am left with to complete the Top-10-things-I-wish-to-do-before-28.

Why 28??? Because after that you get married.

But anyways fuck this 23 and I should let the party begin.Anyone of you who want to send gifts, flowers, booze or wish me – Just feel free to drop your contact number. I will handle the further proceedings.

And now the ‘ V’ day. The great V day. The dream of every single guy. I still remember when I was a kid, I used to dream about celebrating valentine day . In my 10th grade, I got my first chance. Me and my group of classmates which included 2 girls went in a restaurant for lunch. That was like such a ‘ Woohoo’ moment of life for me back then.

On the next valentine day, when I was in 11th grade, me and a girl with whom I used to go around went to a card store. Those used to be days when I used to get pocket money of 40 bucks a week and petrol money. We selected card, we gave them to each other, read the card and thanked each other and put the card back on shelf. It was fun!! You can give so many cards you want, without a penny shelling from your pockets. Then we moved to the gift section. We gave each other some really expensive gifts. But in the last, what started as a fun, became boring. Anyways it was the bestest V day ever.

In my college, on my first valentine day my then-gf gave me a card and a pen because we had the mid terms from next day. And a douche bag I am, I gifted her Chlormint lying in my back pocket.

I don’t have any memory for my second year V day which I quite strange but I clearly remember my third year Valentine day. I was single by then but I celebrated in a royal manner by putting up a status message wishing everyone ‘Happy Valentine Day’.
What?? This is not lame. Half of the engineering male students celebrate like this.

The fourth year V day was pretty special. Paplu set me up for a Night out Turtle walk along the Mahabalipuram beaches with a group of 6 (!!) girls. The trip never turned into reality but we got the most out of it because for one complete week, we were the guys who had a potential dates or plans for the day. That bastard Paplu still made it.

So I guess this has been the journey till now. What about this year?

Well, let’s see. Tomorrow is my b-day and I am lying down with viral but since I have 3 bottles of liquor in my cupboard, I guess we are going to celebrate it tomorrow night. Plus my roommates have arranged a secret party tonight. 

What about the V day you moron?? We are not interested in your B day. Tell us about ‘The V day’.

Oh okay. This Sunday, I will go to the office. I will burn my ass since I have a project review meeting on Monday and I have been of completely no use this week. May be later, I will go to Bus stand which is BTW 15 km away from my place to pick paplu up who will be dropping his GF over there. So I guess this is pretty much.

Anyways guys, I hope you will have a day of your life time out there. My sincere wishes to all the engineering students and a Plead to all the girls of world. Please be generous for one day.

The Holy Lama said...

Ummeed par duniya kayam hai. Hope you celebrated a good b'day and v day and mebbe you can have bv day earlier too;)

Pratik Gupta said...

@The Holy Lama: Hope! yes it is the word around which 77% of the valentine day are woven around :)
Anyways bday was exceptionally great and V day was exceptionally horrible....Balance of the nature i guess or conservation of happiness :)

Kathryn said...

Well, Happy Birthday! And are SO. Not. Old.

I mean...seriously? 23?? You've got your whole life before you! Oh, the possibilities!!

Pratik Gupta said...

@Kathryn: Oh dear!! Thanks for making me feel better. Its just when you realize that you will be spending another V day alone, you feel old :)

Madhu said...

Dude!!My ex was born on the same day...feb 12..NOw shud i feel happy or sad[ill figure that out later!]

p.s DC was good last year man..:) Cmon.Accept it!

Pratik Gupta said...

@Madhu: I guess If "IT" was ex, then it doesn't matter when he born or died but anyways coming on to DC. Cant accept that. Just cant. There is so much at stake and cant loose it by accepting their superiority. RR Rocks!! :)

Btw thanks for dropping and leaving a comment! :)

Chandrika Shubham said...

Belated B'Day and V Day. :)
Interesting article! :) I liked the idea of exchanging cards on V Day. Great idea in the time of recession. :-D

Pratik Gupta said...

@Chandrika: Oh Thanks Thanks!! :) Try it some time. Its real fun :)

Kelly said...

Happy Birthday, dude. I didn't know you were that young. I'm twice your age! But after you turn 30, the age thing doesn't really get to you anymore. Hey, and you are NOT a douche bag for the gift you give your gf. Tell her I said that and everything will be just dandy. :)

Or something like that. :)

And hey, don't worry about the marriage thing. When the time is right, it will happen. I didn't get married until I was 25.

Take Care, friend.


Madhu said...

Well..where did RR go last year..busy advertising for shilpa eh?? :P:D

Static said...

Hope your birthday and your Valentine's was awesome.

Y'know I used to think that age was really important, like you have to do this or have to do that and you can't do this and can't do that--kind of importance..bullshit.

But as I've gotten older (try being a BAZILLION years old!!) I realize how much age isn't all that important in the long run..all that thinking is self-indulgent and limiting...really just self-defeating.

Be in the here and now, brother. The present moments are truly the best moments of your life. =)

Also, when you plead with the girls to be generous, is that another way of asking them to "put out"? O_o

Pratik Gupta said...

@Madhu: Dont you dare to say anything against Shilpa....

Pratik Gupta said...

@Krapsody: Shhh...Dont rui the pleading plan :)

Thanks for the wishes.

@Destiny's Child: Hey thanks for stopping by and wishing me. Glad that you liked the idea of exchanging card .

About this Vday: It was same as I mentioned. A treat for my single life ;)
