March 21st

Posted by livin on March 21, 2010

This post is dedicated to a special person in my life who was born on March 21st.


March 21st, a legend was born. On this earth. A legend who has already made a place in my heart & is all set to enter my life.

March 21st is also the traditional first day of the astrological year. I googled around to figure out the History of this day. Among a lot of others, these are what i find interesting:

1844 – The Bahá'í calendar begins. This is the first day of the first year of the Bahá'í calendar. It is annually celebrated by members of the Bahá'í Faith as the Bahá'í New Year or Náw-Rúz.
1905 – Albert Einstein publishes his theory on special relativity.
1965 – Martin Luther King Jr leads 3,200 people on the start of the third and finally successful civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama.
1971 - Gavaskar scores the first of his 34 Test tons, 116 at Georgetown
1996 - PSLV D3 launched with IRSP-3 ushering new era in India space programme

19xx – Love of my life was born.

So, she shares her b’day with:

1763 – Jean Paul, German writer (d. 1825)
1978 – Rani Mukherjee, Indian actress
1980 - Ronaldinho, Brazilian footballer

Also, March 21 is World Forestry Day and International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

However, apart from these mundane facts, the importance of March 21st lies in the fact that this day is a Gift, a present to me. A baby was born on this day who is meant to occupy a big place in my life & my heart. A divine soul started her journey on this earth as a human. An Angel in her truest nature. My God bless her. !

March, Twenty Ten

I try to gift her on her b’day. I tried to send various gifts but all reached her before 21st. So she considers all these to be ‘pre b’day gifts’. Now what as b’day gift ? So, i decided to ‘Gift’ her ‘this post’ on her b’day. On March 21st. This post, written on a sleepy head but wrapped in love.

May you continue to spread Love all around you & I will personally ask God (he’s our common friend, you know) to shower his blessings on you & all those whose life you touch. !



P.S An interesting observation. She was born on the FIRST DAY of the astrological year & I was on FIRST DAY of October 🙂

Wow. ! Amazing. ! I am surprised to see the date of my last entry. 22nd Sept 2008. Crazy. What have been i been doing all this time? More importantly, where have I been? Well, the world has changed for me in past 1.5 years.

Let me recapitulate the happenings in my life (in no particular order) :-

1. You see in my previous blog entry that i bought Nokia E51. Well, that E51 is dead now & i upgraded to E71. Significant ? Not really. Ok that was just to make way for what is coming next.

2. In one of my previous posts, i vented against V-day (well, i did not vent but my fiancé says, it looks like venting). The irony is that I got engaged on 14th Feb twenty ten. And it was a chosen date. 🙂 Well, i guess, now i have a real reason to celebrate V-Day & not just give in to hype & hoopla. ! So you get the news, right… I got engaged. ! And now i am in the golden period of my life.

3. I hopped around & between 2008 & 2010, this is my third company. I work for Cisco Systems, one of the greatest companies in the world. Welcome to Human Network. !

4. I am a Toastmaster ( And President at that. Well, yours truly is President, Cisco Vani Toastmasters club at Bangalore. Toastmasters has really been one of the best things that has happened to me in past 1 year. You will read more about my journey in Toastmasters (which has just begun) in the coming posts.

All in all, I feel, my life has taken many new turns in past 1.5 years. Cisco, Toastmasters, Engagement has put me on the highway of life. !

See you soon in subsequent posts.

Love you all,
