Celebration Time

Yours truly celebrated his 26th birthday yesterday with couple of friends.

Why do we celebrate birthdays? I mean whats the point in cutting cakes and distributing sweets and partying for something which happened without your efforts. You agree, right?

The 26th tag set me thinking. 26 years gone by. Just like that. Feels like yesterday, those days in school and college. You suddenly realize you are grown up and feel the burden of responsibilities on your shoulders. The whole thing made me kind of sad.

Reminds me of the beautiful lyrics of this song called "Time" by Floyd.....

You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then the one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but you're older
And shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
