Last Thursday was my birth day. Though I usually reed late into the night and wake up late in the morning, I got up very early last Thursday. I observe a special programme on my birthday every year. The day was full of engagements and merry making.
I have a number of friends. I go increasing their number by one every year. Last Thursday it was my sixteenth birthday. So I invited my sixteen Mends to my birth day celebration.
I resolved to bring a better change in my life on the birthday. I looked over the year which came to an end on last Thursday. I felt sad that a whole year had passed away and I was none the better for it. I, therefore, resolved to do my best this year.
With such a thought, I prepared a daily routine for myself. I resolved to follow it throughout the year. I am glad to say that till now I have not mined a single item in the plan I made for myself last Thursday.
My birth day party was arranged in the evening. My sisters took keen interest in decorating the main hall room. There was joy and pleasure every where. My mother was full of smiles. The guests came in time. They all congratulated me on my birthday. Their kind words filled one with joy. I was overwhelmed with joy to receive a wrist watch from my uncle as my birth day gift. The guests were entertained with nice dishes. There was also a programme of light music. One of my friends thrilled all of us by his sweet songs. At the request of my friends I also sang a song. I was deeply moved by the affection shown to me by my elders. We badly missed our elder brother who was in the States for higher studies. The function was rounded up by 10 o’clock in the night.
I bade good night to my parents and retired to my room to sleep. I slept and I did not know who awakened me next morning on Friday, fresh and ready to do -my day’s work.
