A Gift to smile about….

28 Feb

Today a strange thing happened. After my usual morning routine of waking up, relishing my coffee, quite time, getting ready and feeling sorry for myself, I went to work. I knew this day will not be any different from the other days, but guess what, like everyday (which I miss seeing) it was indeed different and it managed to change my the course of the day.

I settled down at my desk, logged on to my machine and mechanically started my day. Checking mails, responding to mails, making calls, taking calls, getting things in order and planning the rest of the day. Suddenly I got a package delivered on my desk. It was nicely gift wrapped and looked pretty. It was from an anonymous sender, there was nothing written on the cover. My hands were shaking as I unwrapped the gift, wondering who it could be and who was kind enough to gift me for my birthday. Honestly I never received any gifts and actually no gifts from my friends since the last 6 years now. So I could easily narrow down to ‘Anonymous’.

The excitment of receiving an unknown package was like unwrapping the christmas presents under a tree (about which I had only read and that which I was experiencing today). My hands still shaking, unable to keep my excitement down. This is what I received:

Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 1.00 PM – “URBAN SHOTS- BRIGHT LIGHTS”.

Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 3.00 PM – “URBAN SHOTS- CROSSROADS”


I was so thrilled and smiled like a little child who had received the book of her dreams. It wasn’t about the joy of receiving the present alone but the fact that someone cared enough to know what you love and knows me well enough to know that I would love reading it. That completely bowled me over. I have never received presents this way (not from friends for sure). So today as the day progress and while I account the moment so far live from my PC ( 28th February, 2012 at 3.30 PM), I would like to thank Akanksha Bali with all my heart to make this day speacial and make my birthday to come more exciting.

The day started with uncertainity, I was certain of one thing though that the day will be nothing but a regular one. However, these moments of sheer joy turns the day around. I don’t know how the day will progess but I am sure that I will always have that moment that made me happy today 🙂

Thanks Bali for taking this day from being sheer ordinary to extraordinary.
