I don’t believe that I am actually writing the fourth series for CB & Me…
Actually it’s been 6 – 7 years that we (CB, Giku, Kudi & GM) have known each other.
To share incidence/event face to face is much easier than expressing it in words in such a way, that reader can feel the same what we had.
You might be guessing (I hope you are) that this time what am I gone share?
Letting the cat out of the bag…this time it’s about Birthday Celebration…

Date:
CB: 23rd Mar
Kudi: 19th May
Giku: 20th May
GM: 23rd Sep
Me: 27th Dec

The birthday season starts with

CBz Bday…

Fact File:

Every year (2004 – 2008), a month before his birthday, we both used to have a big quarrel which resulted in silence on both side till his B’day. 

On his B’day, we hugged each other, stared each other and the cake and finally would resolve the issue with cake cutting ceremony, with no one apologizing. 

Next day the life would back in track where it was before the big fight.

In those last 4 years, he has thrown party only once in the year 2005. He always used to be the first one to say no for his B’day party, but first one to ask from others.

Celebrating his B’day used to be a very difficult task, considering his absent mindedness…You never know when he would say dear friends…Whose B’day Cake is it???

Kudi’s Bday...

Fact File:

I eagerly awaited his Bday…

It was a tradition that whosesoever is the B’day, the party should be at a good restaurant…but on his Bday I used to have food made at home…that Daal Batti, Pav Bhaji, Kheer and all those Indian Sweets…

Aunty took special care of me and Giku…knowing the fact that we were both two extreme on weighing scale…

Since Kudi is a Mechanical Engineer, and we all know how insensitive mechanical engineer are, he always used to receive Birthday Kicks by his batch mates…that was soothing for eyes…

Giku’s Bday...

Fact File

He is a very special friend of mine, a guide, a supporter, a care taker, a punisher, an emotional black mailer…and list goes on…

Be it his Birthday or any other day, he used to sleep at 2300 Hrs. switching off his cell phone… The next day if you are late in wishing him you are gone…He never wants his closed one to forget his Bday…He is very possessive…

We (CB, ME, Kudi and GM) used be terrified when we had to visit him on his bday, because once you are in Gikus Palace… you will receive that love and care that you will just pray  to  God that let this day never be over…

Miss those days…really miss you all…

GM’s Bday

Sorry there is nothing to share about him…he was truly an alien…stayed in a closed room that was a part of a 2 BHK flat…

My Bday...

Fact File

I don’t know why but all of them eagerly waited for the day…The best part of my Bday was that I shared my Bday with Gikus Dad…so this day was very special for me because of Uncle…

27th December 2007 was the day, when these friends of mine gave me the most memorable Bday celebration that I cherish till date…

As it always happen, one knows that his friends will wish him at 1200 Hrs. but they did different.
They came with a cake, snacks, and cold drinks at 0400 Hrs. in the morning…

How it all happen:

Door Bell was ringing…bit annoyed, I kicked CB, to wake him up so that he will see who is at the gate…

CB (Half awake) open the door, and was shocked to see a cake, with candles lit placed in front of the gate…He started rubbing his eyes, when Bday song began…

He realized that something is wrong and he was not supposed to open the gate… He was still at the gates when Giku and Kudi appeared; both shocked to see CB in place of me…

Kudi: yaar I text you not to open the gate in the morning…

CB: Sorry yaar, I don’t read SMS after 2200 Hrs…

Giku: Let it be, where is the Bday boy??

CB:  He is still sleeping…

(I was unaware of this development…)

The only thing I remember is
All of them standing in front of my bed with cake in Gikus hand… I replied thanks and went back to sleep…The next important thing that I remember “glass of cold water hitting my face”

Now he is fully awake…was Giku’s statement…

Bday celebration was carried out…this was quite different…let’s have a look…
