Happy Birthday To Me at 33

i have not survived 33 years. i have earned them. a dig in the past would reveal that everything that i once thought was far-fetched is now on my lap. i wouldnt say i have had a difficult life. i have not. i have had a challenging life for sure though. yesterday night i spent answering calls. and smss and emails and what-else and what not. it is hard to imagine that some years back i had written

here is a page from my personal diary, written some 16 years back on this very day.

"Will there be someone. Someone. Someone to wish me. Will I ever have a friend with whom I could be myself with. I want to grow up. I want to be old. I want to fight and come out and shout. But will my voice echo back, or will it move through many ears. Someday, perhaps, someday... I will shout. And I will not only be heard, I will hear back from the universe" 

and see where i am today. i have more emails than a three thousand emails and smss and other notifications put together.

and this wonderful video by shiv + a cake he baked for me. :) thanks shiv.


then there is this mail from Mike Dooley of

this is a website that strikes the right cord at the right moments.

Happy Birrrrthday to Youuuu,
Happy Birrrrthday to Youuuu,
Happy Birrrrthday Dear Harish ,
Happy Birrrrthday to Youuuu!

A few years back, not so long ago, heaven and earth erupted into a major celebration with the news of your impending adventure into this very time and space. You see, someone like Harish Iyer doesn't come along all that often. In fact, there's never been a single one like you, nor is there ever ANY possibility that another will come again. You're an Angel among us. Someone, whose eyes see what no others will EVER see, whose ears hear what no others will EVER hear, and whose perspective and feelings will NEVER, ever be duplicated. Without YOU, the Universe, and ALL THAT IS, would be sadly less than it is.

Quite simply:

You're the kind of person, Harish ,
Who's hard to forget,
A one-in-a-million
To the people you've met.
Your friends are as varied
As the places you go,
And they all want to tell you
In case you don't know:
That you make a big difference
In the lives that you touch,
By taking so little
And giving so much!

Harish , you are so AWESOME! For your birthday, friends and angels from every corner of the Universe, including buddies you didn't know you had, will be with you to wish you the HAPPIEST of days and an exciting new year in time and space. You won't be alone!
